Solar Shield Glasses for me!

Posted on | June 25, 2014 | No Comments

I really enjoyed receiving my new Solar Shield® Sunglasses. These are highly technological, polarized glasses for a great price. MY eyes feel comfortable in them, completely protected from the harsh rays of the bright California sunshine, and if I need to, I can wear them over my prescription glasses as well. How cool is that?!


Aside from being very comfortable to wear, these glasses protect the eyes completely. When I’m wearing them while taking a walk, or driving, I don’t find myself needing to adjust them in any way. I feel covered and I know my eyes are benefiting from these glasses because I’m not squinting at all. Who needs those extra lines around the eye from squinting so much. I know I don’t!. Lots of different designs to view/purchase. Check out Solar Shield to see for yourself at Summer is on the way.. Protect your eyes! :)

Vegan and Gluten-free at 99cent store

Posted on | May 11, 2014 | No Comments

Of course all 99cent stores, or Dollar stores are not created equal. I visited two different 99 cent stores in my area today and found different products in each. I’m sharing some of my favorite vegan and gluten-free finds from the shopping trips at two 99cent store trips today.

I know these discount stores may not be the first place you think of when looking for “healthier” foods, but you may be pleasantly surprised as I am sometimes at what they do offer.  Their selection is often random and eclectic. For example, at one 99cent store, I found these (new to me) Dryers Outshine fruit bars in grapefruit variety, and in a different 99cent store, the coconut/banana variety (delicious by the way!).  Also,  you can never count on any one item you like being there ever again. So; I tend to get several of one thing if it looks really good or if I remember it being good from a previous visit. :)

Granted, some of these items pictured below are processed foods, but hey, it is what it is. I definitely eat my share. This is why I’m not a skinny vegan. Hehe.. I was happy to see some really nice looking avocados and lemons at my store this morning though. Oh, and the watermelon was perfect! Finding organic is hard though.. it’s really rare to come across an organic variety of anything at the 99cent store. I do love that I can always expect to see “Aunt Penny’s” line of organic canned beans though. Black beans and Garbanzo beans are staples in my home, as well as are black olives. We go through them like they were candy.

Speaking of candy, the 74% dark chocolate by Falize is hit-or-miss at my stores. When they are in stock, I stock up! This dark chocolate is very good. It’s made by a French company that’s been doing chocolate for over 100 years. I’ve seen these bars online priced at over $4 per bar. So I consider them a gem at the 99cent store. No dairy in this dark chocolate. Yum.

You can’t beat the prices! Everything pictured is 99 cents, except for the lemons. They were 99cents per pound.

So these are some of my favorite vegan and gluten-free shopping trip finds today. Check them out:
