Have a Beautiful, Memorable Summer! :-)

I'm taking a blog break for the next few weeks, at all of my blogs. 

I will still be writing a few reviews at and during that time, so if you have a book or product you'd like me to consider for review, you can send me an email with your proposal. (See the top of the home page here for more info. about submitting review proposals.)

I'm going to be spending more time outside, enjoying the sunshine and working on a few projects too. 

I'll be back before autumn, with more reviews and hopefully some new contests too. Hope to see you then.

In the meantime, have a safe and happy summer. I hope it's your best one ever! :-)

Suncoat Peelable Nail Polish

With the arrival of "sandal season" I thought this was a good time to share one of my new, fav nail care products. 

Suncoat Peelable Nail Polish really does help to make my toes/feet summer-ready and looking their best! 

I gave up using mainstream nail polish several years ago, as I had a lot of concerns about the toxicity of the ingredients that are used in them. 

Suncoat Peelable Nail Polish is a good alternative, with much less toxic ingredients (and a lot fewer) than mainstream nail polish brands. And it's definitely NOT just for kids.

I first tried the Princess Pink (included in one of their kits, a lovely medium pink) on my toenails, then a couple of decals added (which were a bit hard to peel off from the sheet but I managed) and followed this with the top coat. It worked so well.

Yes, it is a bit thinner than regular nail polish but with 3 coats and the top coat, my toenails look just as good as they would have with a regular pedicure.

Removing this polish is easy too! I soaked my feet in warm water for about 5 minutes and then EASILY peeled the polish off. Worked great!

If you are looking for a less toxic way to have sandal/summer-ready tootsies! Check this product out

The polish/kits come in a wide range of colors. :-) I want the Mermaid Blue polish too! 

You can read more about the ingredients in this polish at the Suncoat website.

Overall rating for this product: Very Good. 4 out of 5.

Bubbies Sauerkraut

I've always loved sauerkraut and over the years, I've tried a lot of brands. 

Bubbies is the best sauerkraut I've ever tasted! 

I know that for a lot of people, sauerkraut is not all that appealing but that's certainly not the case for everyone, based on the stats, over at the Bubbies site. 

Americans annually consume a whooping  387 million pounds of sauerkraut, or about 1.5 pounds per person per year. 

Bubbies Sauerkraut is a very simple food with only 3 ingredients:

cabbage, water and salt

But all sauerkraut is NOT created equal and when it comes to flavor, Bubbies is superior to any other ones I've tried. And with no chemicals or preservatives, like some other brands have added to the mix. 

Health-wise, sauerkraut has a lot going for it too:

-Sauerkraut is fat free and low in calories. 
-Good source of Vitamin C and contains other important nutrients including iron, calcium, potassium, phosphorus, thiamin, riboflavin, fiber, and niacin.
-Health experts recommend eating several servings of cruciferous vegetables each week to reduce the risk of cancer of the colon. Sauerkraut, like cabbage, is cruciferous.
The only thing that would make Bubbies Sauerkraut even better is, you guessed organic option. Hopefully something they will add to their product line soon. 
If you've never tried sauerkraut before, or have and just didn't like it, Bubbies just might be the brand to change your mind. 
And if you are in need of some recipe inspiration to give Bubbies a try, stop by Veggies, Yarns & Tails, for my Slow Cooker German Sauerkraut Feast recipe. 

Happy 'kraut ;-) Cooking!!
