thingsthatwedo.com - green beaver wildflower beeswax frosty mint lip balm

Well, that’s quite wordy but hey, I didn’t come up with the name. I picked up these Green Beaver lip balms a while back but didn’t get a chance to try them out until now. They were on sale. I purchased 2 of these Green Beaver lip balms for less than $4. Even though I had so many other lip balms at home, I couldn’t resist and picked them up. I mean, $4 for 2 Green Beaver lip balms?

Talk about an amazing deal!

thingsthatwedo.com - lundberg ketchup rice chips

I haven’t been happy with potato chips for a long long time now. Sure, I like to eat them occasionally but they always seem to be missing something. I can’t quite put my finger on it but potato chips seemed somehow pointless (which is probably a very good thing).

Having said that, it doesn’t mean I’m not interested in trying new crunchy things. While I don’t need to plow through an entire bag of potato chips in one sitting, I don’t mind the occasional crunchy savory snack.

On a recent trip to my local health food store, I decided to pick up this bag of Lundberg ketchup rice chips. I love ketchup, my daughter loves ketchup so I figured this would be a nice treat for the two of us.

Boy, was I right!!! – Continue Reading

thingsthatwedo.com - earths choice organic coconut cream

Right next to my family’s love of lemons is our love of coconut. There is just something so incredibly magical about coconut. The hubby and I love coconut. The big kid likes coconut too but probably not as much as we do. I mean, what’s not to love? Coconut is fragrant, velvety, and oh so rich.

I’d been looking for canned coconut cream to make coconut rice but hadn’t ventured back into the canned world until the hubby picked up this can of Earth’s Choice organic coconut cream.

Why?

thingsthatwedo.com - surf sweet spooky spiders

Halloween may have come and gone but we are definitely enjoying the treats that came with the event. As a Halloween treat for my big kid, I picked up a pack of these Surf Sweets Spooky Spiders. We’ve had the Surf Sweet brand before so I knew these would be tasty and fun. The funny thing is, neither one of us is particularly fond of spiders (family and friends can attest to my dislike of these 8 legged creatures. Granted Charlotte’s Web softens my perspective a little bit but just a LITTLE bit)! – Continue Reading

thingsthatwedo.com - camino fair trade medium roast coffee

I would like to say that I’m a coffee connoisseur but I’m not. I drink coffee and my choices are either based on my level laziness or on availability of the coffee. Of course, cost is a factor too (it has to be a really good cup of coffee before I spend obnoxious amount of money on it). I often bring coffee to work in a travel mug because I can’t stand to wait in line at the coffee shop. It feels like a complete waste of time. On the days that I do buy coffee, I’ll opt for whatever is nearby and cost effective.

A long while back, I received this bag of medium roast coffee from the good folks at Camino. There is so much I love about this coffee. I love that it’s fair trade and it’s organic. It’s also incredibly easy to drink. I mean, what more could you want in coffee? – Continue Reading

Well, I could leave this product review at just that but I’m sure you’d want a few details right? – Continue Reading

thingsthatwedo.com - physicians formula mascara

Yes, it’s mascara. Yes, it’s by Physician’s Formula and it also happens to be from their Organic Wear line. I posted about this product back in October 2013. I loved it back then and I still love it now. I love having an organic option available in my everyday drug store. The more available organic and natural options are, the better.

Today’s post isn’t really about the Physicians Formula Organic Wear 100% Natural Origin Jumbo Lash mascara per se. No, today is a ‘nana nana boo boo’ post. – Continue Reading

thingsthatwedo.com - neal brothers foods extremely tasty organic tortillasWhen you get the munchies and you want a snack, it’s nice to have something in the home that you can eat without feeling excessively guilty about. Popcorn, chips, rice crackers, crackers…I mean, what is one to choose?!

Enter Neal Brothers Extremely Tasty Organic Tortillas, a super duper yummy tortilla chip that makes snacking a delight! I discovered them recently at my local health food store. The Neal Brothers Extremely Tasty Organic Tortillas were on sale which prompted me to pick them up for a product review.

When my big kid first saw the bag, she immediately said, “BLUE? The chips are BLUE?” to which I replied, “Yep!” Her response, “Cooooool!” She was definitely in for a surprise because not only did I buy the tortilla chips but I also bought some mild salsa as well.

Correction: I think the entire family is in for a treat!

Translation: the Santa Cruz Organic Lemonade was obviously delicious especially on a hot summer day so why not spread the good news? – Continue Reading
