Tyler's Coffee Review


Tyler's Coffee recently sent me their regular coffee product to review and it was one good cup of Joe. They recommend using a french press to make the coffee in order to get the best aroma and flavor, but since I have a Vietnamese coffee press I made the regular coffee they sent me with my press. It's great using coffeemakers too!

  • Acid-free coffee that is good for teeth enamel
  • Reduces Acid Reflux
  • Limits heartburn, indigestion, bloating
  • Does not irritate sensitive stomachs
  • Interstitial Cystitis Network Approved
Tyler's Coffee comes in regular or decaf. They're made from Brazilian Arabica beans.

If you have sensitive teeth like I do or love coffee, but it often irritates your stomach, give Tyler's Coffee a try. 

I was surprised at how strong and flavorful this coffee tasted! 

If you're interested, you can purchase directly from their website
here: 
                    Tyler's Coffee Products

One pack of Tyler's coffee makes about 18 cups of coffee. 

Based on the aroma, taste, and how many cups of coffee I've made from just one small pack, I highly recommend their coffee and rate the product 5 out of 5.


Just Dance 3 Review




Just Dance 3 was given to me during Thanksgiving, and I've been addicted ever since. I worked hard this year to lose 16 lbs. and finding ways to maintain my weight hasn't been easy!

I lost the weight from June - October using the My Fitness Pal app for the iPhone. You can also use the website if you don't have an iPhone. (See my "Lose Weight" blog post for more info.).

Just Dance 3 helped me lose another 2 lbs. in the past month. It keeps me active on those days when my regular workouts are too mundane and routine. For each song, you get "sweat" points and when added together, can be the equivalent of walking, jogging, or swimming for 30 minutes.

I'm not compensated for this review in any way, but I've had so much fun and such a positive experience with this video game that I want everyone to know about it!

The Wii is pricey, but well worth it for your family. Your kids will love this game - exercise while having fun. Get your entire family to play!

Click To Give - A Few Clicks A Day to Help Charities



I am a big supporter of charities and non-profits especially around the holidays. Having worked at a non-profit, I know the struggles and hardships they face to keep up with the demands and costs associated with running their operations.

If you can't make any monetary or clothing/item donations this year, consider signing up for the Click to Give website.

All you do is click on 6 categories each day. That's it. It takes no more than 1 minute of your day to perform a good deed. Every click provides monetary donations to the charity listed, by the sponsors of that website.

You also accumulate points that can be redeemed for prizes or be donated back to the charities. It's a win-win in my book.

Consider helping out and get your friends and family to join!

Happy Holidays,

GG

Bryton Floss Pick Product Review

The folks over at BrytonPick were kind enough to send me their new floss product to try. You must be wondering, floss?!? Being the oral hygiene enthusiast that I am, I couldn't resist reviewing this product.

12% of the population floss regularly..doesn't that bother anyone else but me? Some people floss with staples, paperclips, and pen caps. I wish these people knew that there was a better alternative than shoving staples in your teeth!

If you've ever had braces or have them now, you know how hard and frustrating it can be when it comes to flossing. You also don't want to be that braces kid with food stuck in your teeth with nasty breath. Using string floss in public bathrooms makes you look like a weirdo (trust me, I did this at work) and your coworkers and bosses will give you funny looks.

The BrytonPick floss is convenient and discreet. It doesn't look like traditional floss and is reusable for 30 days. I had my braces removed 9 months ago and in the 4 years of wearing braces, this product would have been useful since I was always caught flossing at school and at work.

The BrytonPick floss is thin and it fit through most of my teeth, but there were some teeth crevices that the floss just could not wiggle through. This may be due to the fact that my braces were removed earlier this year and my teeth are still adjusting. It took me just one minute to floss with this product. I tried it again the next day and noticed the floss ends were not as sturdy as the day before. The floss ends are made of stainless steel, which are resistant to bacteria.

The convenient part was being able to floss with one hand! I find traditional floss picks wasteful and the BrytonPick floss is a convenient alternative if you like reusable and recyclable products. Also great for kids who don't like to floss thanks to the different colors and easy to use design.

What's my rating?

4.5 out of 5

- portable, convenient, discreet, reusable and recyclable, kid-friendly

Overall, a highly recommended product especially for those with braces, adolescents and teens, or adults who are on-the-go.

Available at your local Walgreens, CVS, or Winn-Dixie stores. 
www.brytonpick.com for more information and to order online

I received one or more of the products mentioned above for free using Tomoson.com. Regardless, I only recommend products or services I use personally and believe will be good for my readers.
