Newman's Own Organics Pet Food Review

My cat, Mac, is not very picky when it comes to food, so I knew he would be open to trying this great organic pet food from Newman's Own Organics.

My cat only gets wet food as an occaional treat (because truthfully he is a fat cat!) so I knew he would be excited.

He must have been able to smell it right away because when I opened the box, he went to investigate.

I have to say I am extremely happy with this brand. You know the awful smell most wet pet foods (and even some dry) have? That smell makes me gag! I didn't get as an offensive smell when I opened the cans of cat food.

Mac really enjoyed them! He was very happy to eat the wet food, but even loved the dry food.

There are many varieties of the wet food.

~Turkey & Vegetable

~Chicken & Salmon

~Chicken & Brown rice

~Organic Beef


~Organic Beef & Liver

Now, I can't exactly say which one tasted the best, because no matter how much I love Newman's Own, I won't taste test cat food ;)

I can say that Mac enjoyed each kind, but seemed to really like the Chicken and Salmon. This doesn't surprise me. When I cook chicken at home, he is there at my feet, begging.

I am so happy to see some good quality pet food out there! I feel so good feeding my kitty good, organic food!

Make sure you come back on the 1st of July and enter to win a gift set for your cat and a gift set for your dog from Newman's Own Organics!

Come home to finer things!

Dream of coming home to the finer things? Tune in right here on Saved By Grace, for a giveaway you won't want to miss, the Welcome Home Event!

Hype Energy Drinks review!

Sometimes you just need a pick-me-up and many people reach for an energy drink.

A really great tasting one that I have found is Hype.

Hype is energy with Vitamins and no preservatives.

The flavors include Original flavor, Cranberry and Elderberry and Elite, Original flavor that is low calorie.

Hype also offers something unique in the energy drink market: an organic, taurine, coloring and preservative free variety!

I have to be honest, I LOVED the Hype Energy Organic the best. It has a great apple flavor and contains Tea and Aloe Vera and a boost of antioxidants.

I mostly just got to taste them because my husband drank them up so fast! He loved them a lot and he noticed a boost in his energy with no crash. His favorite was also the Hype Energy Organic flavor, but commented that even the Original flavor didn't taste like competitors-it was better!

I think the Hype shotglass was neat as well. You can mix your drink of choice with Hype and they don't mix until you kick back your shot.

You can find more info on Hype at

Be sure to follow them on their Facebook and Twitter pages as well.

Hype is available for purchase on the Hype website.

A day in the sun!

Montana has finally seen some sun! I don't know why, but every year when it finally comes, it takes me by surprise. If you are thinking of moving to Montana, understand that while we do have all four seasons, but Summer and Winter really drag on and Spring and Fall seem to not exist at all some years! In Montana, we like to say,"We have 2 seasons; Winter and Construction".

In any case, we had a scorcher the other day and a friend of mine, Jenna, and her kiddos hit the local park with water features to cool off!

The kids had a blast, but only after her little man, Brayden got over his fear of the water. Then he was all in it!

Jaeda, my 9 year old was looking "cool" in her shades.

Baby McKenna, Jenna's daughter had fun it the water as well. Her little suit was so cute!

I love that my city put these parks with the water features in a few years back. It sure beats the turtles that sprayed water when I was a kid!

My daughter is such a budding photographer! Take a look at the picture she snapped on myself and Jenna!

I hope you are having a lot of summer fun!

BH Cosmetics Smokey Eye Palette

BH Cosmetics has some really neat products! I was given the opportunity to check out their Smokey Eye Palette. It contains so many colors and combinations, I didn't know where to start! I had fun creating all kinds of looks!

What I most love about Bh Cosmetic's Smokey Eye Palette is how bold the colors are! These are not your low qualify eyeshadows that need to be caked on to get the deep color you desire. What is also great is it stays in place all day, doesn't flake off and I didn't get a crease line.

The collection has so many matte and shimmery colors to choose from to create a ton of beautiful looks. Kick your beauty routine into high gear with the BH Cosmetics Smokey Eye Palette!

BH Cosmetics features a huge assortment of makeup products. From eyeshadows to blush to lip gloss and brushes.

I found that the 28 color Smokey Eye Palette was a great value and I was seriously surprised by it's size! It is as large as my hand (and trust me when I say, I have some big hands!)

Take a peek at all the colors included:

I also love how the palette has some unique colors that are hard to find like red!

This is one eyeshadow palette you and your glam gals are sure to love! I know this eyeshadow addict did!

You can follow BH Cosmetics on twitter and Facebook to stay tuned to all their awesome deals on already low prices! Also, check out thier YouTube channel for awesome makeup tutorials!

And BH Cosmetics has offered to sponsor a giveaway for the Smokey Eye Palette for one lucky reader!

Easy Enchiladas!

I love this meal. I am all about cheap, fast and easy-peasy meals!

This one is super easy and fairly cheap and you get a lot of it!

First, lets talk about the ingredients you will need:

~One can of re-fried beans

~About 2-2 1/2 lbs chicken breasts (you could also use thighs, I just prefer breasts)

~1 small can of black olives

~1 large can of enchilada sauce, your preference

~A drizzle of cooking oil

~Large tortillas, 10-12

~Shredded cheese

~Green onions


~Sour Cream

1. Start by poaching the chicken breasts, cooling them (this could even be done the night before to speed up the process) and shredding. Place in a pan to brown with a drizzle of oil. Pre-heat oven to 375

2. Add the can of re-fried beans. Combine with the chicken. It may be hard to do, so add about 2 tablespoons sour cream and a little bit of enchilada sauce to make it easier to mix. Add olives.

3. Put about a 1/3 cup of mixture in a tortilla, add some cheese and roll up like a burrito. Place it in a cake pan. I use my trusty glass cake pan for this. Make sure you have sprayed or oiled the bottom to prevent sticking. Do this until you have a full pan.

4. Drizzle the enchiladas with the enchilada sauce, top with a generous helping of cheese. Top with aluminum foil.

5. While it bakes, (about 20 minutes or less depending on your oven), cube tomatoes and cut up green onions.

6. Bake until cheese is melted and it looks piping hot, with sauce boiling. Turn on broiler and remove foil. Allow to crisp up for just a few minutes. Keep an eye on it!

Pull your enchiladas, allow to cool for 5-10 minutes. Place on plate and top with green onions, tomatoes and sour cream! YUM!

This is a very good way to use up leftover turkey at Thanksgiving! I just shred some bird and use it in place of the chicken. My husband loves it!

Prevagen Supplement is amazing!

I was in an accident when I was 17. I was hit by a car as I was crossing the street. The car was going 40 mph (speeding by the way) and I was hit head on. In the course of the accident, I was flung up onto the car's windshield (my body actually broke it) and I was chucked nearly 40 Ft from the car. I hit my head and was knocked unconscious. I stayed that way until I was in the ambulance where I would briefly gain consciousness for moments. It took me several hours to fully regain consciousness. I had also bruised and hurt my hip bones, broke my clavicle in half on one side, had black eyes, and road "rash" on my entire left side. I was lucky.

Needless to say, I do believe I have suffered some long term damage to my brain.

On top of that incident, I have also dealt with two bouts of meningitis, an infection in the fluid that surrounds the brain and is in the spinal cord as well as under-going ECT for depression.

I would say my brain has been through the ringer at only 30 years old.

Because of all this trauma, I do have some memory loss issues and well as some other cognitive issues. For instance, I have trouble recalling things, remembering things in both short and long term and understanding some concepts. I am what some people call, "a little slow" and it makes my day to day life rather frustrating at times.

I tried a new supplement that is supposed to help with these things**. It is called Prevagen.

Prevagen claims to improve memory, help you have a sharper mind and protects the memories you have**.

I was given a 30 day supply to try and I was admittedly skeptical. I can say that in my experience, I did actually notice a slight difference in memory recall after just 2 weeks*.

I was pleasantly surprised when after 30 days, I was more able to have a better short term memory recall*.

Now, I wouldn't say it is a cure, but it certainly helps your brain become healthier**.

I bet you are wondering what Prevagen is. Prevagen is a dietary supplement that contains only one active ingredient-Apoaequorin. This was first discovered in jellyfish and is now produced in labs. It helps the brain protect it's cells by slowing the cell death.

I love that Prevagen gave me noticeable results so fast and that it is completely vegetarian and cruelty free. No jellyfish are used to make the formula.

You can also find more information on Prevagen on their website. Be sure to follow them on Twitter and Become a fan on Facebook!

Prevagen is available on amazon for purchase as well as in Walgreens.

Prevagen is also willing to offer ONE of my readers a free bottle of a 30 day supply to try as well! Just enter on the Rafflecopter form below for your chance to try this awesome product!

Zoobies Giveaway! Come check it out!

Readers, I just know your little ones would love this giveaway so I teamed up with the Giveaway Gator to bring you this giveaway! How cute are Zoobies?!

Zoobie blanket pet and Zoobies Blankie Babies

Does your little one have a favorite "Luvey"? You know what I am talking about. The blanket or stuffed animal that your little one loves for years and can't be without? The one that is given to your now grown child when they have their baby, to be pulled out of a memory box, as you remember back to those times when your child couldn't bear to be parted with that blanket, even to hurriedly throw it in the wash?

Zoobies are the best of both worlds. A blanket and a stuffed animal, that they are sure to treasure from the moment the softness touches their little hands. Our granddaughter is 8 months, and as soon as we laid her down on the blanket, she squealed and grabbed the hippo in delight. The blanket conveniently tucks away into the animal to create a stuffed toy or pillow.
Even if you don't win one, I would recommend heading over to Zoobie and purchasing one. You will be more than buying a toy; you will be creating a memory.

My BIG announcement!

If you have been reading my blog recently, you will see a little post on my breasts.
In this post I talk about how having large breasts has really given me a hard time and actually caused tremendous health issues.

Well, I have an announcement:

I will be consulting with a plastic surgeon on the 12th of July this year to talk about getting a reduction. This has been in the works for several years as I have been gathering medical evidence.

I needed to gather medical evidence for insurance purposes. I have seen several types of Doctors to address the many aspects of larger breast size in relation to my health.

~My regular provider, Sandy P. FNP has been so wonderful to me. She has gotten the ball rolling on all of this and she has been inspirational on moving forward. It is now a serious possibility because of her!

~ I saw an Orthopedic practitioner and she recommended I get a reduction because of the way my back is curving

~A chiropractor recommend it as well because of the way my neck is curving forward.

~I had a doctor several years back tell me that I needed to consider it because of skin issues I struggle with in that area.

~A Doctor of sleep medicine suggested it because I actually have trouble breathing at night because of their size

~A respiratory therapist and pulmonary doctor recommend it because I don't actually have asthma. I just have a difficult time breathing because of the weight of them on my chest.

Did you know that breast tissue weighs approximately 1 lb for each cup size? Since I am an H, that means mine weigh 10 lbs each! That is 20 lbs on my chest all day and all night. It's no wonder I have issues with breathing and that it is causing serious back, neck and shoulder issues.

I have to admit, although I am excited, I am scared. This is a major surgery with a very pain-filled recovery (or so I have heard).

Wish me luck on this journey. You know I will keep my blog readers informed!

Julep Maven box!

Have you heard of Julep yet? Julep is a subscription month-to-month beauty box!

There are a couple different subscriptions that are available. What is fun, is, you can take a quiz to see which one fits you best!

I chose to review the BOHO Glam Maven box!

Inside I got two awesome nail colors, a set of toe separators, a welcome message, some awesome Pedi creme ("the best Pedi Creme ever") and some tips! It was all wrapped up in a box and a bow!

This would make a wonderful gift for any girly-girl in your life!

Let's take a peek inside my BOHO Glam Maven box:

I love the two nail colors I received! The pictures don't do them justice.

The first color was "Hayden", a bold and bright neon peach

The second color is "Courteney", a key-lime green

I was very impressed by both the color and constancy of the nail colors. I love how bright they were! Perfect for summer open toes. I also loved that they were a thick, quality formula. One of my biggest pet peeves with nail polish is the formulas that require you to put several top coats on before you achieve the color you desire. Julep Nail Vernis nail colors are not like that at all! One coat and I was done!

I also got "The Best Pedi Creme Ever!" The formula smells wonderful and clean. It is thick and glides on smooth with no greasy feeling after. I actually noticed a difference in my foot's softness after just a couple nightly applications. I love this stuff, as I believe it is the best Pedi Creme ever!

You can get all of this, and it changes monthly, for $19.99. Each box includes over $40 worth of stuff! What great savings! Plus you are able to get free shipping on all orders, enjoy 20%off items in the boutique and a wonderful referral program!

What is even more AMAZING is if you are a Saved By Grace reader you can get your first box for a SINGLE PENNY (1 CENT! is she for real?!) and free shipping and you can cancel at any time! Just go to Julep use promo code MAVENINTRO
