BebeLush Beauty Product Review and Limited Time Special Offer


BebeLush recently provided us with 2 products to review: Hydrating eye gel and shave soap. This review will cover the eye gel and stay tuned for the shave soap post!

The BebeLush Hydrating Eye Gel wasn't sticky or oily, which I appreciated. I like the bottle it came in; it made it very easy to use the product. It just takes a small amount to apply around the eyes, so I think this bottle, although small, would last for quite awhile (even when used twice daily as recommended).


I am happy to have the BebeLush Hydrating Gel to use as I get older and notice more wrinkles. I am excited to see how it will improve the look around my eyes.

After applying, my skin feels soothed and refreshed. It feels like it will help give health to the skin around my eyes. The product is very high-quality and I like how it's made of all organic ingredients and contains no chemicals!


With that said, I would like to offer you an unheard of $30 off the BebeLush Hydrating Eye Gel! For the next 48 hours, you can use the code EYEGEL30 to receive $30 off the eye gel! To order, go here. Hurry, because the code will expire 9/4/14 at 6pm Central Time!

And while you're at it, you can like BebeLush on Facebook here!

Final Healthy Tuesday Hop

Hey, everyone!

I want to thank you all for participating in the hops each week. I really appreciated it! As of late, my plate is getting more and more full and I have been unable to invest a good amount of time in this hop. That said, this hop will be the last hop I'll be doing for the Healthy Tuesdays.

To anyone who has healthy hops, I would be happy to send everyone your way to participate! Just email me: trulywaiting at gmail.com.

Again, thank you all for participating and I hope we can continue to have our blogger friendship. :)

Hope Foods Review

Hope Foods recently sent us a couple of coupons for free products so that we could try their hummus. The two varieties that we found at a local grocery store were the Organic Red Pepper Balsamic and the Organic Original Recipe.



The Organic Red Pepper Balsamic was very fresh in taste. The hummus was very robust in flavor without holding the heat that you might expect from peppers.




The Organic Original Recipe had a flavor and texture that were different from what I've known of hummus - but I have a very limited experience with the food. The flavor was a bit bland for me - I prefer a hummus with more flavor, such as the Red Pepper Balsamic version.



Both types of hummus were great dips for sliced vegetables, making for a reasonably healthy snack. I sliced a cucumber into thin discs and enjoyed that with them.

Hope Foods is committed to creating products that are organic and gluten-free, vegan and kosher, and high quality. Check them out!

The Ginger People Product Review

The Ginger People recently sent us a variety of their products to try out and review.

Gin Gins® Hot Coffee Chewy Ginger Candy

The Hot Coffee Gin-Gins Chewy Ginger Candy totally captured the flavor of coffee.

Gin Gins® Peanut Chewy Ginger Candy

The Peanut Gin-Gins Chewy Ginger Candy was hot and different from any other candy out there.

Gin Gins® Spicy Apple Chewy Ginger Candy

The Spicy Apple Gin-Gins Chewy Ginger Candy had a bit of apple flavor with a whole lot of heat from the ginger. It was tasty and full of flavor.

The Ginger People candies are great for settling upset stomachs. These candies are all natural. Every one of the candies that we tried was full of flavor and spice. The products are nonGMO and made with organic ginger. Check them out for yourself!

Andean Dream Gluten Free Product Review

Andean Dream, makers of all kinds of quinoa products, recently sent us some food to try out. Their products are all gluten free and nonGMO!

We were sent three types of Andean Dream Quinoa Cookies:

Coconut Cookies had a mild flavor. I like how they were individually wrapped - made them an easy on-the-go snack!

The Chocolate Chip Cookies reminded me of typical chocolate chip cookies that you would buy in a package at the store - but without the same number of ingredients and poor nutrition facts.

The Coffee Cookies had a really tasty coffee flavor. These were an interesting and unique type of cookie.

We were sent two kinds of Andean Dream Quinoa Pasta to try out:



The spaghetti noodles were very similar to other spaghetti noodles, and also very tasty.

The macaroni noodles that were sent to us were so similar to "regular noodles" in taste and texture. Bethany turned half of the noodles into a small batch of homemade macaroni and cheese - which was delicious.

Do these no trans fat, no gluten, nonGMO products from Andean Dream sound like something you want to try? Check them out!

StateStreetCreations Etsy Shop Review

I love shopping on Etsy, love the handcrafted items from sellers throughout the U.S. and the world. I especially love "shopping" on Etsy when I can do it without having to spend any money in the process. Sue from StateStreetCreations was nice enough to send us a pillow cover to review - and to allow us to pick that pillow cover out from her fun designs.

StateStreetCreations offers pillow covers of various styles and sizes, as well as vintage items and wine bags. The items are very reasonably priced, and they will add to the decor of any home.

Here are a few of my favorite pillow covers from the shop that I didn't choose:

Funky decorative indoor outdoor throw pillow cover with a variety of shades of green

Sassy yellow and grey chevron pillow cover

Pillow cover with muted flowers and leaves on an off white background

Such fun designs!

My sisters and I needed another pillow cover for the old pillows that came with our garage sale couch, and we decided to go with the chevron print.



The pillow cover that we received worked perfectly on our pillow! It definitely brings a modern look and feel to our apartment's living room.


Thank you, StateStreetCreations for giving us this opportunity!
