Drum roll please…….. And the June Daily Goodie Box contents are:
This pack of Ginger tea came with 6, yes SIX packs of the tea crystals! I shared them with my coworkers since we are all fans of tea and it was a fun experience trying them. Be warned, it is VERY VERY strong of ginger. Not bad, but I wouldn’t say great. It was better when i added it to liptpn tea bags than on its own. I hear ginger is amazing for colds though so this is great too have handy.
I wasn’t really a fan of how thick this was… similar to a milk consistency. It is protein though, so i guess it’s gotta have some substance to it. Maybe I was just caught off guard since I opened and chuffed it though lol… The flavor wasn’t bad and I would try it again if i saw it at the store.
Isn’t this little bottle the cutest? My grandmother always used to warm maple syrup in the microwave for my brother and I when we would sleep over her house. This brought back so many memories and I LOVE everything about it including the bottle.
This was another item I brought to work for a snack but wound up sharing it because everyone was so interested. I actually really liked it although it was bitter from the dark chocolate. I liked the texture and I feel like it did give me a little boost. Not everyone was a fan, but i want more!
Looking for something to do to get out of the Heat this Summer and keep the kids busy? Why don’t you head on over to Legoland Discovery Center in Westchester New York!
Legos are a family staple… they’ve been around for generations and families enjoy using them together and will absolutely love checking out all of the amazing Lego creations that are all over at the Legoland Discovery Center. They truly are great for the whole family.
One of our other favorite things that we did during our visit was check out the 4-D show that they had. Every month or so the show rotates to a new one so it’s always a new fun experience for the family. If you’re unsure what 4D is, it is where you can feel, see, and even smell what’s going on in the short 15 minute movie. The great thing is once you’re inside, all of these attractions are included with your visit including the movie.
I do recommend that you eat prior to going to the Legoland Discovery Center because their food options are pretty limited especially for young children that are picky but there are sandwiches and some other options if you would like to eat there or have a snack.
There is a parking deck located only a block away from the Legoland Discovery Center and if I recall it was pretty cheap and for yhe entire day.
Not to mention that the area is great and it’s a great day out for the entire family. There’s an outside mall that you can walk around and window shop or grab an ice cream and just walk down the Main Street of the strip.
The Legoland Discovery Center has given me a family pack of 4 tickets to give away to one lucky winner.
Today is June 2nd, the unofficial start of Summer in my mind. It immediately makes me feel at ease knowing school is coming to an end for my kids and long play days in the yard await. Health has been on my mind as well since of course everyone wants to be in their best shape for the beach and water parks.
Lately I’ve been on sort of a health kick.. walking a mike a day on my lunch break at work and eating more consciously. I’ve been getting a little into essential oils and using my oil diffuser while i take a shower or a relaxing bath with a bath fizz and some eucalyptus scented Epsom salt.
It helps me to wind down from the day and just clear my mind. My kids have also used the eucalyptus to help with allergies and sinus issues, I just prop the diffuser in their room and they’re good to go after a couple hours relaxing with it filling the room with aromas.
With that being said, I want to give my opinion on a lesser known mom and pop store in my home town of Staten Island (I love saying I was born on an island because it’s true haha).
Www.Relaxbehealthy.com sent me a few items to check out and i have to say I’m really loving them. I haven’t had much experience with essential oil water sprays but these probably take the cake of i had to guess from what i see with their essential oils.
All of their products are organic and hand made in their shop with imported products from around the world. The items in reviewing are made from raw materials from Bulgaria and are the real deal.

Now this Rose Water is my absolute favorite. They captured such am amazing scent I could wear it as a body must and probably will! Also $10.99 at their store, I wish you could smell it through this post, but if you do order from them, I suggest you put this in your cart.
