GoGo Juice Review

Posted by Valerie's Reviews at 4:18 PM 0 comments Links to this post



GoGo Juice...Naturally Juiced.

Our 100% pear juice is made from a variety of pear that no one else uses.  It tastes like apples with a cinnamon-y kick.  We are the only ones with this great-tasting and truly unique juice.

GoGo Juice is a pure, NOT from concentrate, certified organic pear juice that is just like what you would make at home with a juicer.  We take ripened fruit, peel the skins, remove seeds and cores, and juice them.  That's it!  We do not add any sugar, colorings, fake flavors, preservatives, press aids, filter aids, chemicals or other stuff.

GoGo's products are, and always will be, suitable for families on special diets such as Gluten Free/Casein Free, Specific Carbohydrate Diet, Feingold and many others. 

We make a conscious effort to avoid conventional juicing issues.  For example, did you know that when you buy well known juices, you may be buying rice hulls, ground wood, and tiny fossilized critters that are used to help high volume pressing?  We don't do any of that!  We just squeeze our fruit.

We received a bottle of this juice to try. We have never tried pear juice before so I was excited to see what my girls would think.

GoGo Juice actually recommends watering down the juice about 50% this makes the juice healthier for you and makes the bottle lasts longer. My girls love this juice. They would ask for it by name.

I tried the juice both watered down and straight. I like it watered down but not as much as 50% - more like 25% for me. This juice tastes like a sweet apple juice, but it's not too sweet.

The only thing I would like to see is more variety in their products, but they are a new company and I'm sure variety will come. I would love to see a fruit punch type juice. 

I also love the story behind the company and love that this is a mom made product. I definitely think this product is made with your children in mind and I can't say the same about the big companies.

Bravery in a Bottle

Posted by Valerie's Reviews at 1:06 AM 2 comments Links to this post



Is your child/children afraid of the dark?  Do they think monsters are in the closet or under the bed?

Have no fear, keep Monster Vapor near.

Relaxing Blend of essential oils:
LAVENDER
LEMON
MANDARIN
ROSEWOOD
ORANGE

A story card is attached with the Monster Vapor mascot and a wonderful bed-time story to help ease fear of monsters.

My children actually are not afraid of the dark and generally go to bed very easily. Recently my 6 yr old has been having bad dreams and some of them have been about monsters. When she wakes up in the morning she tells me that the dream fairy gave her bad dreams and she's suppose to only give her good dreams.

Before bed one night I showed her the bottle of Monster Vapor. She loved the picture of the friendly looking monster. I told her that if you spray it under your pillow it keeps bad dreams away, especially ones with monsters in them.

The next morning she told me it worked, she said that the dream fairy brought her good dreams. Now she reminds me every night that she needs monster spray so that she will have good dreams. This spray is especially good for bedtime since it is an all natural product made from essential oils that promote relaxation.

The sprays come in 4 varieties: Monster Vapor, Storm Squasher, Courage Concoction and Feeling Campy.
They are packaged in a high quality, lined aluminum bottle and refills are available for purchase at a reduced price. There is also a plush monster that matches the friendly monster that is on the Monster Vapor bottle and an organic cotton mascot will be available soon.

I highly recommend you check out Bravery in a Bottle.

Note: This review will be of interest to you if you live in the San Antonio area.

I received a pink princess cake for my 2 daughters. The day it was ready my family was having a party for my Dad's birthday. My girls decided that PaPa need to have a pink princess cake so we took it to the party.

 The cake itself was a homemade vanilla cake with a pineapple filling. The topping was made of fondant and the decorations were edible. The crowns on top of the cake were golden colored and sparkled.
You can really tell that she worked hard on the details of the cake with the little castles on the side and the crowns on top. Everyone at the party was commenting on how pretty and well decorated it was.









The cake was very good. I would not have chosen pineapple but it was moist and overall it was very yummy.
It went over very well and was liked by all.

Gigi's Cakery makes a variety of cakes. You can contact her via facebook if you are interested in information on having a cake made.
