If you've spent any time on my blog or my social media sites, you already know how much I love Red Apple Lipstick and their gluten free products. I really can't express enough how awesome their lipsticks, glosses and eyeshadows are! In fact, I'm so addicted that I became a RAL affiliate. Needless to say, I was absolutely DELIGHTED when I learned that RAL would be coming out with a gluten-free and chemical-free mascara. I was even more stoked when I was asked to try it out before it's official release date (July 31st).

Normally I don't bake unless I have a reason to. Sounds odd, but whenever I have something sweet in the house I usually end up finishing it off way too fast. So to save myself the calories, I just don't bake very much, problem solved. However, this bread came to be because I had some over-ripe bananas that I didn't want to go to waste.

I know what you're thinking, how can pizza possibly be good as a muffin? Well, friends, let me tell you. These little pizza muffins are possibly one of the best gluten free things I have ever made. They're gooey, cheesy and are nearly better than actual pizza. And the best part is you wouldn't even know they are gluten free. I had to cut myself off, or I would have eaten all twelve of them.

Well friends, it's nearly the end of June, which means we're pretty much half way through 2014. Where on earth has this year gone! It's blowing by way too stinking fast. Regardless, I thought I would try to slow it down a little bit by taking some time to share with you my top five current obsessions. I mean, why not right?
|1) Acure Organics. This company has some amazing skin and hair products that are organic and gluten free! I've been using their face care products for a couple months now, and I'm loving the difference. Plus, I love that I'm treating my skin to something that's chemical free :)|
|2) Broiled Grapefruit. You may have seen my post on how to broil grapefruit awhile back, well, I'm still loving it. It's sweet and sour and so delicious.|
|3) Gimbal's Cherry Lover's Gourmet Jelly Beans. You guys, these are seriously addicting. I also did a review of these on my blog that you can check out.|
|4) Everyday Minerals. You could say I've gone a little nuts with overhauling my skincare, but hey, it's the biggest organ you have. EM has some great makeup that feels lightweight, doesn't have nasty chemicals, and lasts all day.|
|5) Hudsonville Triple Peanut Butter Cup Ice Cream. Maybe this is just sold around where I live, so I'm sorry if you can't enjoy the amazingness that is this ice cream. I'm hooked.|

If you're like me you have never heard of, let alone tried microgreens. I had no idea what the heck they were until my sister invited me to go to a class at a local greenhouse with her. Having discovered recently that I can actually grow plants and not just kill them, I decided that this would be interesting. One of the first things that the instructor asked us is what we hoped to get out of the class, called 'Maximizing Microgreens'. My honest answer was "I want to learn what microgreens are...". Boy did I feel cool. This hour and a half class definitely taught me what microgreens are, and I found a new and exciting thing to devote my (nonexistent) spare time to.

Summer is such an awesome season, especially here in Michigan. There's just so much to do from going to the beach, checking out farmer's markets, hiking, and the list goes on and on. While I love everything that summer brings, the heat can make it hard to want to cook or bake anything. That leaves me on the constant lookout for easy to prepare meals that involve little to no cooking.

In case you need an excuse to enjoy sweets, June is National Candy Month! As such, I was given the opportunity to sample and review some products from Gimbal's Fine Candies. I had never heard of them before, but since I love trying new gluten free products, I definitely was excited to see what Gimbal's was all about.
