Zest Tea – High Caffeine Without the Crash

I received free tea to review. If you click and buy, I may receive a small commission. Thank you! Between work and being in grad school full time, I need the energy boost of caffeine. I drink a cup of coffee in the morning, but sometimes that extra cup (or energy drink) later leaves me feeling just as tired, but jittery.

When companies ask to send items for review, I often decline because a) “stuff” makes me overwhelmed, b) it’s pretty time-consuming to write blog posts and time is in short supply lately. However, when I looked at Zest tea, I was pretty intrigued. It has about as much caffeine as coffee (120-150 mg) and contains L-Theanine, which is thought to improve cognitive function when combined with caffeine. The brand is also based out of Baltimore, MD so supporting a local company is pretty cool!

I’m in Love with my DreamCloud Luxury Mattress! (Review)

DreamCloud Sleep Luxury Hybrid Mattress

I received a free product for review. If you click and buy, I may receive a small commission, thank you! I was not otherwise compensated for this post and all opinions are my own. I’ve been long overdue a new mattress, but I tend to fall victim to analysis paralysis with big purchases. So why did I finally choose DreamCloud luxury hybrid mattresses?

Does Arnica Really Work on Bruises?

I purchased this item myself. If you click and buy, I may receive a small commission, thank you. I recently had to give myself Lovenox (blood thinner) injections, and while I followed the instructions (at least, I think I did!), I was left with bruises that left me wondering: does arnica really work on bruises?

Adrianne K 7-Free Nail Polish – Review

Adrianne K 7-free nail polish review

Change-Diapers received free polish to review. Post contains affiliate links and all opinions are our own. A few years ago, I published a review of Adrianne K “5-free” polish. Adrianne K Polish is now “7-Free,” which means they are not only made without the 3 common chemicals found in nail polishes (Toluene, Dibutyl Phthalate (DBP), Formaldehyde), but also without 4 other very dangerous chemicals (Formaldehyde Resin, xylene, parabens, and Camphor). You can read more about why you should choose a 7-free polish on their website.

The company sent me a polish (with their improved brush) as well as a base coat to try, and I put it to the test!

Breastfeeding Review

Two Things This Breastfeeding Mom Won’t Leave Home Without

Bianca received nursing pads for review purposes. If you click and buy, we may receive a small commission, thank you. There are two items that I never leave home without since returning to work after giving birth to my baby Nola.

  1. My super awesome Spectra S2 Pump.
  2. My Geffen Baby Nursing Pads.

Nola is now 8 weeks old, almost two months! I feel like had her, blinked, and I was back at work. Thankfully my employer is super supportive of my breastfeeding and I am able to pump while at work.

This is my first time working full time and having an infant at home though I’ve breastfeed all three of my kids. I pumped and donated milk with my first and I went back to work part time when my second was a little over one year old, so I really didn’t have to pump much, if at all. Circumstances are different this third time around, and I am pumping two times while at the office.
