Two Rivers Assorted Tea Sampler Pack – Giveaway

I have partnered with Two Rivers/Brooklyn Bean Roastery for this feature


We did it! Weeks of packing, then living in a hotel while the home build is complete and moving in to unpack it all again in the new place. We are home owners again and (hopefully) in our forever home so it really feels settling. The one constant was our K-Cup coffee brewer because the caffeine is what we needed daily to get us going. Now in the new home I have a larger kitchen and made a coffee bar.

My husband is a black coffee drinker and I love flavor. The Assorted Tea Sampler from Two Rivers Coffee has so many fantastic flavors of tea and I make it right in my K-Cup brewer. I have a variety of caffeinated and decaffeinated flavors.


As I type this giveaway feature for you I am thoroughly enjoying a cup of Vanilla Chai caffeinated tea and it is so full of flavor. I don’t have to add extra sweetener to this so that saves calories. Inside the box is some Stash and some Prospect brand flavors you may recognize. There are a lot to choose form.

I am thinking I need to make sure one of you get a chance to try this sampler so I am offering a giveaway on this site for you to enter.

The Giveaway

1 lucky reader will win a box of Assorted Tea Sampler from Two Rivers. Open to US, ages 18+ and must not have won their coffee in another giveaway in the last 90 days. Ends 8/16. Good luck!

Holiday Gift Guide Feature: Health, Fitness and Beauty Products from FitBoomBah

FitBoomBah Logo

FitBoomBah is not only fun to say, but it is a one-stop website for all things healthy and fitness-related. From supplements, blender bottles, apparel and aroma products you can definitely find a gift for everyone on your list in one spot. I received some products I thought you would enjoy and wanted to feature these. However, there is so much more than the ones I am featuring.


The Mixologie Blendable-Perfume Collection has been such a hit. My sister was over and I was so excited to show her this set and she fell in love. She texted our Mom right away with “Christmas idea” as my Mom asks us to do that. She was googling the brand on her phone and finding them a lot of places at about $99 a set. I told her she has to look at FitBoomBah for it was the cheapest price. Sure enough it was and by $20!


You get roller ball scents in a set of 8. They are alcohol-free and high-quality concentrated oils and a gentler, longer-lasting emollient, DPG (dipropylene glycol). They all smell so great and the idea is to create your own scents when you mix and match them. There are several recipe cards that come with the collection so you can find just the right mix for you mood. Try mixing Inspires, Tenacious and Electric if you are stir crazy and need to relax. You can also try Tenacious, Free and Inspires for a bit of a de-stress and focus scent. Or, like me you can just grab 2-3 and roll them around and either combination will smell great as you head out the door.


I work at the High School and it is recommended that we do not wear perfumes because of sensitivities. Because these scents are alcohol-free I can wear them and they do not seem to interfere or cause sensitivities to those around me. I just love this collection!


Another favorite is Teami 30 day Detox Kit. I had read about this brand because I wanted a gentle cleanse. The last cleanse I tried was horrible and too harsh and the taste of the beverages was terrible. This tea is not only a gentle cleanse but tastes great. I don’t even have to sweeten the tea. I drink it as is.


I decided to make it a health change and even kept diary of of before, during and after results on these two Teami products. These are based on a 1 month regimen of drinking Teami Skinny 1-2 times a day (1 tsp in 8 oz of hot water and loose tea left in) and the Teami Colon every 2 days at 1 tea bag in 7-8 oz of water and seeped 2-3 minutes.

Contigo Gifts That Help You Stay Healthy #HolidayGiftGuide

Sample sent for feature


The holidays are always a great time to refresh the ole travel mug. It makes an easy gift whether the person on your list is a coffee or tea drinker. My husbands birthday is in June so he also gets a new one then so every 6 months he can throw out or donate the old and start with a fresher and cleaner mug. This is because all travel mugs we have had are so difficult to clean. With cold and flu season and busy summers, the last thing I need to worry about is bacteria-overgrown or unsanitary cups and mugs.

The Contigo AUTOSEAL® West Loop Stainless Steel Travel Mug with Easy Clean Lid is a solution.


  The AUTOSEAL® in the title refers to the lid that automatically seals between sips. Not only does this prevent leaks and spills, but keeps your beverage hot or cold this way. However the AUTOSEAL® is not the only feature of this mug that helps keep the beverage hot for up to 7 hours or cold up to 18 hours.


The Thermalock™ vacuum-insulated stainless steel also keeps beverages hot or cold. It is a travel mug you can drink from with one-hand operation. Just press to sip. There is also a lid-lock that prevents you from accidentally pressing the AUTOSEAL button.


Keeping your Contigo AUTOSEAL® clean is easy. It has a dishwasher safe lid. The lid also flips completely open so you can clean in those hard-to-reach sections. The lids have always been the culprit in holding nasty beverage residue in the past. This feature is pretty exciting. The mug is 100% BPA free. You can buy it in 4 colors-Stainless Steel, Black, Monaco Blue and Radiant Orchid. Available at most retailers.
