Life is Naturally Sweet with Mohawk Valley Trading Company

Product was given to me in order to post my honest opinion.


When it comes to baking or making something sweet, I turn to pure maple syrup and raw honey. Mohawk Valley Trading Company specializes in honey, maple syrup, beeswax, and handmade soap. All their products are made in the USA and are all natural, pure, unprocessed, and free of preservatives. I love that the company also carries two of my favorite things: candles and handmade soap!


Pure maple syrup is a staple in my home. Mostly I use it with pancakes and waffles, but more recently I started using it as a sugar substitute in baking. Pure maple syrup from Mohawk Valley Trading Company comes in a glass bottle. It is made out of sugar maple sap which has a sugar content of 2%. Their Grade A pure maple syrup is dark and robust. Extra Light and Grade A typically have the mildest maple flavor. Grade B is very dark with a strong maple flavor. The dark grades of syrup are preferred for cooking and baking.

Explorations Wine Club from Uncorked Ventures

Product was given to me in order to post my honest opinion.


Screen Shot 2014-09-21 at 9.17.43 PM


After I put my kids to bed at night I like to relax. Sometime I blog, sometimes I watch Netflix, and other times I enjoy a nice drink! At home I like to keep it simple: wine! I prefer white wines over reds. That being said, I know nothing about wine! I am familiar with some names, but other than that, I just look at color.


Not knowing anything, I enjoy when somebody recommends a specific bottle or when I am at a party and I get to sample different wines. I do like Moscato and sparkling wines, but I am always open to trying new white wines.

Surprise Ride ~ A Monthly Subscription Box for 6-11 Year Olds

Product was given to me by Surprise Ride in order to post my honest opinion.


As you have seen, I love monthly subscription boxes! My kids have had great experiences with them as well. Surprise Ride is a subscription service that sends kids ages 6-11 fun and educational hands-on activities that foster creativity and imagination!  The company was started by two sisters Donna and Rosy, and they have been working hard to create a lasting impact on the lives of children, beyond the latest toys or technologies.

e84bf5d245f6db44e066bd5a7d84e4ae0256df91My kids are always excited when something comes for them in the mail. They have gotten craft boxes before and loved the new and exciting adventures they found inside. The Surprise Ride is geared for older kids, which I feel is where there are not many things offered for this specific age group.
