Greenwald's Citrus All Purpose Cleaner Review #CitrusCleaner

Greenwald's Citrus All Purpose cleaner is a unique entrant to the market for 4 reasons:

1. It's more powerful than the average cleaner purchased and discount stores. It removes the toughest dirt & grease while leaving a light fresh citrus scent. 
2. It saves money. Because when purchasing either the kit or the refills (note: this promotion is for the "kit" that also contains a 6 pack of refills) it's 30-70% less than competing products.
3. It saves a ton of space. Each dissolvable refill makes a 32 ounce spray bottle and each refill fits in the palm of your hand. You can store gallons of cleaner refills in the size of a cigar box. You can store an entire arsenal of cleaners in a drawer. It frees up cleaner closet or under the sink space. 
4. It's environmentally friendly from the standpoint that you're not purchasing a new plastic bottle every time you need a new bottle of cleaner. You recycle the existing cleaner bottle that you have. This means less plastic bottle trash (5 times less or more) that goes to local landfills let alone less trash you deal with. 
What You Get

Once you receive your box from Amazon open it and be truly amazed at the product innovation you now own. Now grab your included high quality professional spray bottle and:

1. Fill your bottle with warm water.

2. Place one refill into the bottle.

3. Wait approximately 1 minute and gently shake.

It's That Easy!

This isn't any spray, it's commercial grade spray designed to cut the toughest grease and grime without leaving residue. Because the refills come in a tiny size it means you can easily store an entire arsenal of our cleaning products (glass cleaner, floor cleaner, all purpose cleaner, etc.) in a single drawer. You don't have to shop for cleaner as often either, it's all at your finger tips. You get all this and save 30-70% on your cleaning supplies to boot.

Midori Spring Ceremonial (GOLD) Matcha Green Tea Review

:Midori Spring's Ceremonial Gold Matcha - is a ceremonial grade (premium) green tea used for brewing the finest most flavorful drinking tea you'll ever taste. This is NOT a cooking grade powder (although it can be used for cooking if you prefer), the quality is so high that it is primarily reserved for tea ceremonies for it's full flavor, and health benefits.

Rich, smooth and creamy with a hint of sweetness when brewed traditionally. This premium product is Ceremonial Grade and is Organic (USDA, JAS) and Kosher (OU) Certified. We only select the best raw material from our tea gardens mostly from Aichi and Kagoshima in Japan and maintain the highest standards in production. Our Matcha has a fresh, sweet, green-vegetable-like aroma. The colour is a vibrant emerald green. Only high quality Ceremonial Grade Matcha encompass these features. You can enjoy Midori Spring's Ceremonial Gold Matcha the traditional way by brewing or you can create your own Matcha inspired recipe. Whichever style you choose to have your Matcha, you can experience the many health benefits it has to offer since Matcha is a Superfood.

There are many immediate and long term health benefits when consuming Matcha, which include: increase in energy without the jitters, reduce stress and improve mental alertness, improve metabolism and help with weight loss, boost immune system and reduce inflammation and help the body cleanse of harmful elements. Give back to your health and embrace the power of Matcha

Cassandra's Review - Even though plain matcha to me is a bit bland, this matcha is perfect blended into baking and smoothies. When paired with other foods and beverages it is great and is a fine powder that is easy to use.

I received this product at no charge.


#JoyWIlliams Venus album Review #O2O

Many know Joy Williams as one half of the four-time Grammy-winning folk-rock duo The Civil Wars. Until their 2012 hiatus (and eventual break up in August 2014) the singer-songstress rarely revealed herself, except through the duo’s music.

On her new solo album, VENUS, (out June 29) she changes all that. Joy was intent to tell a more honest, human story of one woman’s journey out of darkness.

Over 11 unstintingly honest songs, she unabashedly recounts what occurred in her life over the past two and a half years. She doesn’t try to defend or explain, but instead tells a simple straightforward story of events, sparing no one, especially herself.

You might call it a coming-of-age album, but it is so much more than that. It shows how one woman has come to live her truth — the good, the bad, the petulant, the honorable — and in the end, shows all of us how to live our own.

 I received a complimentary digital copy of this album.
