Meet Arthur Tweedie, Water critic

I thought my mother was a water critic until I was introduced to Arthur Tweedie at his Water Blog. Here he is giving a Water Seminar: MAXION Technology I'm learning about the NEW cost effective PUR Ultimate 11 Cup Pitcher with MAXION™ Technology and thought about the importance of refilling my own glass bottles while laughing at Arthur Tweedie's antics on his Water blog. He really has a way putting things in PURspective. I think mother would approve. #contest

A Cup of Coffee with Soul: Green Mountain Fair Trade

I got the opportunity to try Green Mountain Fair Trade Coffee for free because I'm a BzzAgent. I was really impressed with the Three Continent Blend sent to me in my kit. It was tasty and flavorful. I enjoy the full flavor and richness of South American coffee. I really enjoyed this one and finding out the story behind it, about being Fair Trade certified made me enjoy it even more. Gave my cup of coffee a little soul- gave me good vibes. Kelly Clarkson makes a good fair trade spokesperson. She went on a trip to the Andes in Peru to see and learn first hand the impact of fair trade coffee in the communities there. By farmers receiving a fair price for their coffee, communities benefit. They are able to invest in education and programs that empower women and children. Here is her travelogue. She's spreading the message through music making an impact about Fair Trade coffee at a time when only 38% of consumers are even aware of what it means to be fair trade certified. It's nice to see the great impact it is making on farmers and communities there. Now when I shop for coffee I choose a coffee that is good tasting but is making an impact as well.

Discover DreamTone by Lancome

I got the opportunity, compliments of SheSpeaks and Lancome, to try Lancome's DreamTone, a customized skin tone correcting serum, available in three tones-fair, medium, and dark. It corrects dark spots, uneven skin tone, and color imperfections. Unlike other serums I've tried that are usually greasy, and stinky DreamTone feels rich and luxurious with a pretty light scent. My skin immediately felt and looked quenched, creamy, even toned and glowed instantly. My mid-40's are coming up so I have to be diligent in my daily skin routine including staying out of the sun! I promised to share a #bareselfie of myself after using DreamTone. This is the picture I chose after my "Grey Gardens" photo shoot.(headband LOL) Check out all the fun @LancomeUSA #bareselfie pics over at Instagram and Twitter. That's the funnest part of campaigns besides trying out new products. You can also see and read more selfies and testimonials on the Lancome DreamTone link above. This one's a keeper! Lancôme DreamTone retails for $98 for a 1.3 fl oz. bottle and is available for purchase at Lancô and department stores nationwide. Made in France.

NEW Kashi Hummus Crisps

I got the opportunity to try Kashi's NEW Hummus Crisps for free for being a BzzAgent. I tried all three flavors of Kashi Hummus Crisps and my favorite was Sundried Tomato, Basil, and Feta probably because of the cheese. It was interesting trying hummus in chip/crisp form. I've been eating authentic hummus for over 20 years and love it. I also liked the Caramelized Onion and Sea Salt Olive Oil flavors. The flavors were light and natural and healthy tasting. The crisps are nice and crunchy. My BFF and I ate my first entire bag in 10 minutes at the beach! They are also great dipped in lemon-Y hummus. Kashi has always made excellent products, interesting and healthy too.
