Veev VitaFrute Review & Paypal Giveaway! {ends 7/31}

 photo summer-heat-giveaway-hop-250_zps20ae8516.jpg
Welcome to the
Summer Heat Giveaway Hop

From July 21-21, 2014,
you can visit all the blogs on the linky list below
and enter to win all their prizes!
Good luck!
 


Have you heard of Veev?
VEEV is what Vodka should be -
handcrafted, all natural, acai - all with an amazing taste 

The name VEEV is derived from the word for “life”. In Latin it’s “vita”, “viva” in Spanish and “vivre” (pronounced veev!) in French.  Intended to uplift and inspire, VEEV represents their philosophy to live consciously and to always have fun.

Veev was created as a better version of vodka, made to meet the consumer's desire for a better beverage. Veev's distillery is the only distillery in America to get its power through renewable wind energy and their 4 colum distillation process uses 200% less energy than a traditional pot still. So get this, you are drinking an eco-friendly drink - I had no idea I could have a sustainable drink until I heard about Veev!

With all the greatness Veev has to offer, I'm a pretty big fan
but I'm really obsessed with Veev VitaFrute this summer.
The first line of organic and all-natural ready-to-drink cocktails.
You literally just shake, pour over ice and enjoy!

These no-fail deliciously made cocktails are obviously made with VEEV, sustainable, handcrafted, all natural, and all with an amazing taste. The best ready-to-drink cocktails on the market in every aspect. Plus they have a flavor to meet every craving. With four delicious flavors including:
coconut colada, margarita, lemonade, cosmopolitan. I've decided I'll be trying them all this summer.
Which one do you want to try?


I went ahead and decided to be sophisticated {like the girls on Sex & The City. LOL} and tried the cosmopolitan flavor while trying to relax this weekend and I'm more than impressed. The flavor is phenomenal and the fact that it {as well as all of the other flavors} are made with premium and all-natural organic ingredients make this stuff my favorite thing to sip on this season!

I'm dying to try the brand new coconut coloda flavor - 
 I hear it has a delicious coconut kick, which sounds perfect to me!  Plus it's made with coconut water, one of my favorite things to drink because of it's ability to fully rehydrate me. Drinking while getting your electrolytes, this sounds like it could be a good way to drink and avoid a pesky hangover!


 You may be thinking these sound similar to wine coolers, while the taste is enjoyable enough it could be compared to those delicious beverages, Veev VitaFrute packs a little more punch - heh, I guess I should say alcohol. It's strong enough to give you a buzz at 15% alcohol {or 30 proof}, but it's just the right strength - you can enjoy a couple of beverages and still be drinking responsibly without getting that dreaded high sugar content that nearly every other similar drink would pack.

Veev VitaFrute is the answer to enjoying a healthy, light beverage while relaxing this summer. Coming in at just 125 calories, it's a great option for those of us trying to stay trim. Although, the added sugar on my glasses make it a little higher in calorie, so you can skip that step if you are watching your waistline... but I highly recommend a fruit garnish - fun & nutritious drinking - uhhhm, yes please!

I spiced up my cosmopolitan with a sugar rim and a strawberry garnish,
easy-shmeezy and oh-so-pretty!



Fighting the summer heat with an organic, low calorie cocktail is this girls idea of pure happiness!
What makes you purely happy? Maybe saving some money WHILE drinking?

Good thing I have a coupon for $5 off your bottle 
of VEEV VitaFrute,
check that out here!
{Just a heads up, you only have 5 minutes to print - so be ready to print when you click the link!}


Wondering where you can find Veev VitaFrute?
 Major grocery store chains such as Walmart, CVS, Meijers, Krogers, etc.
Click here to find a store near you that carries this deliciousness!

 To ensure at least one of you get the pleasure of enjoying this delicious beverage,
I'll be giving away a $25 paypal gift card.
Since Veev has a MSRP at around $12, plus I'm giving you a $5 off coupon -
that means you can buy 3 bottles and some fruit to garnish it with!
It's time to party organically!

#RWMevent - Christmas in July Bulu Box Weight Loss Subscription Box Review & Giveaway {ends 7/31}

{ I received a Bulu Box subscription box to facilitate my review, regardless I only recommend products that I think my readers will enjoy and find useful. Affiliated links are included in the post below.}



Welcome to The Christmas in July Giveaway Hop
hosted by Review Wire Media
This giveaway hop will run from July 17-31!




As you probably already know, I'm on a journey to get fit in 2014
and when Bulu Box reached out to me to become an ambassador for the company,
I couldn't help myself -
I love subscription boxes and this one promises to
help me find healthier products to increase my weight loss, how great is that?


Bulu Box is the first health, nutrition and weight loss discovery box designed to help you feel your best. Each month, you’ll get a customized box with the perfect mix of 4 to 5 premium samples from top brands to try. Every sample is supposed to be sufficient enough to decide if the product is right for you.. Shipping is always free and you can cancel anytime, two perks for the skeptical person wanting to try the boxes out. Share your thoughts about each product in their sample surveys and you can earn 50+ Rewards Points (that's $5!) each month! That's right, a subscription box that actually pays you to subscribe - just another reason Bulu Box is the best!

You have the option to choose between a weight loss box or a nutrition/health box and I obviously went with the weight loss box.  I received my first Bulu Box a few weeks ago and I'm still waiting to use one of the items I received, it's packed full of goodness and I'm trying to ration it out until my next box arrives! I'm still super excited to share my opinion on all of the items.

This month my box included:
 1 small sample of The Good Bean Roasted Chickpeas- a low cal, crunchy snack
1 Quest Protein Bar in Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Flavor
2 packets of Organic, energizing RUNA Tea
1 sample of Garden of Life RAW Protein shake
1 dose of Shapeology Burn Blend supplement
2 doses of AdvanceMint Happy Hour {a hangover relief supplement}

I also was given a coupon code for my readers to 
receive 50% off their subscription if they sign using this code at checkout:
BULUGAN058


The Good Bean snack packs are a healthy snack made of roasted chickpeas in several flavors including the flavor I tried (sea salt), cracked pepper, smoky chili & lime, and sweet cinnamon. The Good Bean Roasted Chickpeas weren't my favorite item but I think it was the specific "Sea Salt" flavor I didn't care for. These Chickpeas pack a punch of fiber and protein in each packet and at 120 calories you really can't beat a snack like that.

The Quest Protein Bar was one of my favorite things in the box  ever, the flavor was excellent and the high protein snack was a perfect hunger quencher right before working out. I have heard great things from others about Quest Protein Bars, now I can say for myself - these are DELICIOUS! Check them out and get a box or two of your own.


The two packets of organic, energizing RUNA Guayusa Tea in the Traditional flavor were absolutely delicious. The tea is refreshing and the flavor is interesting and satisfying. I love that this tea provides natural caffeine and age-fighting antioxidants while providing a clean, steady energy boost. If you are looking for a healthy alternative to energy drinks, RUNA is the answer!



I'm still waiting to try the Garden of Life RAW Organic Protein shake, I've heard great things about Garden of Life shakes and I'm just waiting for a good intense work out session to be planned to guzzle this baby. 

The Shapeology Burn Blend supplement is supposed to help your body mimic having a high metabolism, with such a tiny sample of one dose - it's really hard to say if this supplement worked for me. Although, I did seem to feel different the day I took the supplement I would like to try it again to really have a real opinion on it. 


The AdvanceMint Happy Hour hangover relief supplement is actually a tasty mint that replenishes the body with a formula of vitamins, minerals, electrolytes, and antioxidants. These little babies help kick the-day-after blues and I highly recommend them.



Lucky for you I've decided to spread the word about Bulu Box in a big way,
one of my readers will win a 3 month subscription!
