MyBodyUtopia is a handmade, all natural store that uses organic material for creating unique tootpastes, lotions, soaps and more! They even make beanie hats by hand (and they are so cute)


I was fortunate to try two items from MyBodyUtopia (what a fun name). They are the Cinnamon explosion toothpaste and the body lotion in Garden of Hawaii.

The lotion is made from Shea Butter and fragrance oils. Garden of Hawaii is a soft floral scent that does get a bit lost in the shea butter smell at first but it does come to life after about 7 minutes on the skin. The lotion itself is moisturizing and more like a balm than a liquid lotion. It is not greasy however and absorbs into the skin nicely. It may take someone not used to the balm texture to get used to it but it is not that difficult to spread and a little goes far. Thr jar is also quite big and it is filled with product so there is no skimping out done here. 

The toothpaste is a new thing for me. It is a liquid sort instead of a gel and it is in a jar. The jar is large and generous, i will have toothpaste fora a while! I got the cinnamon flavor and it is more mild than a store bought paste, much sweeter and not so spicy. I thought my jar had melted when i got it but a bit of stirring and it all came back together. The other flavor i get is sour/tangy on my tongue from the other ingrediants, it is not terrible but it takes a bit to get used to. This does not irritate my sensative gums or teeth so its a plus in my book.

MyBodyUtopia has many things to satisfy the bath and body enthusiast, i will be trying out the deodorant next!

Bath Bombs Gift Set

Maker - Spa Fairy

Product Type - Bath/Gift

Where to Buy - Amazon

Price - $29.99

100% Natural Organic Essential Oils, are Vegan and gluten-free and have no artificial colors or dyes like other "gift sets"

Contains Six Large 4oz/113g Bath Bombs, twice the size of other popular sets sold on Amazon.

Each Spa Fairy Bath Bomb contains a special blend of unique naturally scented Essential Oils. 

Ultra-moisturizing with Shea and Cocoa butters that moisturize and replenish your skin.

Certifiably Made In USA, with the highest quality ingredients and care


I am an avid bath taker and I have tried dozens of companies and products from oils, salts, bombs, fizzies and putties. Rarely do I find a product that I just fall completely in love with, until now.

Spa fairy has done something very, very right here. These bombs are large, scented magnificently, and fizz like no other! Firstly the gift box is just adorable and can be used for so many different things after the bombs are gone. 

The bombs themselves are packages in plastic and tied with a ribbon with thier scent description and name. I loved all the different oils in these and each had a unique scent that perfectly matched thier respective name. 

These do cloud up the bath water and do not dye it pretty colors like some but that is a minor infraction to me since the oils in this were extremely moisturing. The smell? Oh my! Not only do you smell it as it fizzes and dissipates into your bath but the scent stayed with me throughout the entire bath time and even afterwards i could smell it walking into my bathroom. Most bombs i have used lose smell halfway through my bath but these did not and i enjoyed my bath more for it. 

If you love baths or know someone who does, I HIGHLY recommend this set. You will get all natural, highly scented and moisturizing bombs that are sure to please.

BerryCart Box

Product Type - Subscription Box - Monthly

Price - $29.99

The BerryCart box features 8 - 10 healthy snacks with 4 of them guarenteed to be full sized items. The box is monthly and costs $29.99usd. If the price scares you do not fear, I hear a $19.99usd box is in works with less items but still delicious goodies. At this moment you can also get $5 off your first box! All boxes come with rebates (10$ worth) and are always high fructose corn syrup free as well as free from artificial flavors, sweeteners, and preservatives.


Simple Squares Organic Snack Bar

This contains coconut, a flavor I am not too fond of but I felt the honey balanced it out and added needed sweetness. This is not super sweet however so it was easy to eat the whole thing in one go without getting sick of it. This is soft and slightly chewy, the flavor is light and the nuts give a slight texture change. It was pleasant. 

World Peas: Santa Barbara Ranch

I love green pea snacks and these did not dissapoint. The ranch flavor was light as was the crunch so you are not breaking your teeth on these. There is also no powder to get everywhere on these, at least not much that I noticed. I found myself popping one in my mouth and licking all the flavor off before biting these, it was fun! These also filled me up well in between lunch and dinner. 

Ips Chips: White Cheddar

These are made from eggs whites! I was suprised because they are quite flavorful and have a nice crunch. These where my favorite snack in the box and the added protein of these is a great bonus. The white cheddar flavor doesn't taste processed as much as say.. The cheddar popcorn you can get elsewhere. Its a comforting snack for sure and I hope to find these in a big bag somewhere soon.

Chocolate Snackaroons

Another coconut I did not get much chocolate flavor from these and they honestly where my least favorite item. They are not bad, I just wish it tasted more chocolaty. Have you ever had the coconut patties with chocolate coating? These are a healthier version, they taste just like that and are very soft. You can also feel the coconut flakes as you chew it and did enjoy that aspect but I would not run out to buy a bag/box of these. 

Hemp Hearts

I will admit I was wary of eating something rooe is made out of but really, we eat worse things daily haha. These are soft and taste like unsalted plain sunflower seeds. I ate them right out of the bag but i could see these added to oatmeal or in salads just as easily. They are neutral tasting enough to add to just about anything for an added boost in energy and healthy goodness.

Kutoa Chocolate Espresso Bar

Mmmm. Espresso! You can smell the bitter brew as soon as you rip open the package. If you love the taste of coffee and little bits of chocolate then you will enjoy this. It is soft and chewy with little bits of crunch to it and it is just heavenly. The chia seeds got stuck in my teeth a bit but i found that did not hinder my enjoyment of this treat. Every bar bought also helps feed a child in need.

I Heart Keenwah Clusters: Peanut Butter Cacao

My poor teeth! These are HARD. The flavor is very good, perfect balance of chocolate and creamy p.b but they are very, very crunchy. They are bite size mostly so you do not have to break them apart but i will recommend letting them sit in your mouth a few before chomping down. Great way to get kids to eat quinoa and introduce the healthy seed into diets.

Beanfields Bean and Rice Chips: Nacho

Despite not really looking like the picture in terms of color, these were pretty good. Not a huge nacho flavor, more salty than anything really they were still enjoyable and had a good crunch to them. The bag comes with quite a good amount in it and they will fill you up. I would try other flavors of these if I could find them, the powder flavoring is also a minimum so your not wiping off your shirt afterwards and getting your fingers full of grease.

There was also a little plastic box with sample packets of Pyure organic stevia sweetener that i used in my coffee. It was sweet with no odd aftertaste and was a powder, not granular. 

The box was very well put together and I recieved it in days of shipping since it is priority 2 day. If you want to try the healthier side of snacking or just something fun and different I would very much say to give this a try.
