What are some of your favorite products for Autumn?

My Favorite Indulgence – World Class Granola That Tastes Like Dessert!

Company: My Favorite Indulgence

Products:

Chocolate Mocha Granola

Pumpkin Spiced Granola

Maple Cinnamon Granola

Classic Almond Granola

Reviews:

Is your morning routine missing a little something? Toast and coffee not cutting it anymore? Try My Favorite Indulgence World Class Granola! (How’d you like my infomercial impression?) These granolas are vegan and made with natural, non-GMO ingredients. There’s nothing on the labels that you won’t be able to pronounce and the flavors are incredible! Alright, let’s jump right in!

First up, is the Chocolate Mocha Granola. I love chocolate. I love coffee. I love granola. So obviously I had high hopes for this one! I was not let down! The sweet, cocoa flavor along with the crunchiness of the oats and almonds really can’t be beat! There is even a hint of cinnamon which really amps up the flavor. I paired this with almond milk and it was like eating a dessert for breakfast. I’m in love!

Next, is the Pumpkin Spiced Granola. As far as I’m concerned, Pumpkin Spiced flavored foods should be eaten year round! Some “pumpkin” flavored foods taste artificial and not very appetizing. This granola, on the other hand, is done right! It contains actually pumpkin which is the primary flavor of this granola, along with pure maple syrup, dried cranberries, almonds, and pumpkin seeds. It is subtly sweet, crunchy and tastes like pumpkin pie. It’s pumpkin perfection!

The Maple Cinnamon Granola (listed on their website as “Nut-Free Granola) is phenomenal! The sweetness from the pure maple syrup with the pleasant bitterness of the cinnamon and the crunch of the oats; this granola does not disappoint! This flavor is nut-free and perfect for someone that isn’t into “dessert” flavors like the ones above or just prefers simpler flavor profiles.

Last but not least is the Classic Almond Granola (listed on their website as “Granola With Nuts”). If you’re a traditional granola lover, this is for you! This variety contains almonds, sesame seeds, pumpkin seeds, and sunflower seeds. I’ve never had granola with all three, so I was interested to try this! Just because it is “Classic” doesn’t mean it’s boring! The blend of maple syrup, brown sugar, and vanilla along with the oats, nuts, and seeds is truly delicious!

The Bottom Line

These granolas from My Favorite Indulgence are fantastic. They’re vegan, healthy and oh-so-delicious! All of the flavors are non-GMO and make a satisfying meal or snack.  I love each and every flavor and actually couldn’t pick a favorite! I love that they come in a large 10 oz. size for home and also come in 2 oz. snack sizes to take on the go! Head on over to the My Favorite Indulgence website to check out their world-class granola!

Thank you, My Favorite Indulgence, for sending me these products to review!

Basic As #!?& Body Butter (Pumpkin Spice) *Limited Quantity!

Merry As #!?& Body Butter (Holiday Spice) *Coming Soon! Available November 23!

Reviews

Alright girls, go grab yourself a PSL with almond milk, post a pic on Insta of your feet walking through colorful leaves and slather on some Basic As #!?& Body Butter! It’s perfectly pumpkin spiced because deep down, we’re all a little basic.

This super thick body butter gets its magical hydrating powers from shea butter and jojoba oil. Essential oils from cinnamon bark, nutmeg and cloves blend together to make its beautifully basic fragrance.

This bad boy melts right into the skin and leaves a gorgeous sheen on the the skin without feeling like an oil-slick. It makes your skin noticeably softer and deliciously smelling of pumpkin spice. Don’t be surprised if the scent  attracts a bunch of basic b$tches around you. ‘Tis the season.

Ok, let’s talk about the soon-to-be-released- holiday-spice-scented, Merry As #!?& Body Butter!

If the holiday season was somehow trapped in a jar and transformed into a moisturizer, it would smell like this sweet, refreshing, cinnamon-y blend of Christmas trees, warm apple cider, and sugar cookies!

Yes, it smells freakin’ amazing but it also really hydrates the skin, thanks to its rockstar ingredients; Shea butter and jojoba oil. My skin was softer after just one use and I loved smelling like the living embodiment of Santa’s excitement on Christmas Eve. I just couldn’t help but get into the holiday spirit with this stuff! I was, indeed, Merry as #!?&.

The Merry As #!?& Body Butter will be available on November 23rd on Bleepingbeauty.com! Write a reminder on your phone and don’t come crying to me if you miss out!

The Bottom Line

Bleeping Beauty makes delicious and fun body butters that will get even the biggest Scrooges singing Deck the Halls!

The Basic As #!?& Body Butter is almost sold out, so if your basic girl senses are tingling, you better order now! (Seriously, this stuff is amazing and I’ve never smelled anything like it before!)

The Merry as #!?& Body Butter is a scene stealer… a show stopper… a whatever showbiz cliché you can think of! It’s just awesome and I highly recommend it!

These body butters will make the perfect gift for anyone on your list that likes natural skin care that is vegan, cruelty-free, and has some F!?&ing personality!
