PITS! Natural Deodorant by Taylor's

Disclaimer: Product was provided in exchange for my honest review. All opinions are my own.

Taylor's Pure and Natural

It's been a while since I've stopped using store-bought deodorant and I'm not going back. All thanks to my favorite natural deodorant from Taylor's - PITS! It does sound a bit comical but this product is the real deal. Even the natural deodorants you buy at the store don't compare.

Natural Deodorant

What's in It?
The list of organic ingredients used include:
  • Shea butter
  • Extra virgin olive oil
  • Deodorizing herbal blend (calendula, rosemary, chamomile, lemon balm, and comfrey root)
  • Hawaiian macadamia and coconut oil
  • Baking soda (aluminum-free)
  • Arrow root

Natural Deodorant

The essential oils used to give the deodorant their fantastic scent depends on which variety you get. The one I currently use is Rose Vanilla which is made with pure vanilla bean extract and rose geranium essential oil.

The deodorant gives up to 18 hours of protection and absorbs quickly. Plus, you won't get that gunky residue that mass-made deodorants leave behind. No need to scrub your underarms off to get rid of it.

What Else Makes It Special?
-Not tested on animals
-Made in Hawaii
-No harsh chemicals or additives
-Made with Love 

It can also be used to keep stinky feet not-so-stinky. It might even help soften them!

Check out the other amazing products Taylor's Pure and Natural shop carries, including BALM! Baby. 

There is currently a holiday sale in which you can get 10% off the entire shop. :)

One Lucky Veteran Will Win a 7-Eleven Franchise

This is a sponsored post written by me on behalf of 7-Eleven Franchising. All opinions are 100% mine.

Can you imagine one day getting a call stating that you've won a 7-Eleven Franchise? It may sound crazy but one military veteran will be that lucky recipient! 

Operation Take Command

A deserving U.S. Military veteran will have the chance to own a 7-Eleven franchise by submitting an application at OPERATION: TAKE COMMAND. The contest will then be narrowed down to 10 contestants who will create videos promoting why they should win the store. Once these ten contestants are chosen, America will vote for their favorite video. The voting will be held on Facebook.

Over 50,000 vets have found employment in the franchise industry in the past year. It's no wonder why winning a 7-Eleven store is the perfect way to fulfill a veteran's dream.

Voted Best for Veterans Franchise

7-Eleven has a history of supporting veterans and creating jobs for them. In fact, the President and CEO of 7-Eleven, Inc, Joe DePinto, is a military veteran himself!
Did you know that 5,608 U.S. veterans have become franchise owners? In the past four years 203,890 new vets and military spouses have started franchising careers.

But Wait!

7-Eleven is not just going to hand over a store and call it a day. Not at all! Here are some helpful facts regarding 7-Eleven franchising:
  • You get extensive training support from franchise professionals
  • It's turnkey - store, land, and equipment will be provided
  • A gross profit split means 7-Eleven is invested in your success
  • Start-up is fast (3-6 months) and 7-Eleven will be there every step of the way

Contest Details

Veterans can follow these simple steps to enter the contest:
  1. Enter by filling out the form at OPERATION: TAKE COMMAND
  2. Be sure to apply by January 25, 2015
  3. Finalists will be announced in March 2015
  4. Create an impressive video explaining why you should be the winner
Remember - don't be shy when making your videos. Get creative and let 7-Eleven know how you'd make the best business owner and how much you have done to protect our nation.

Finalist videos will be posted on the 7-Eleven Franchise Facebook page. Once America votes, the top 3 contestants will be flown to Dallas for a final interview. The fortunate winner will be announced on April 13, 2015!

Every veteran has a chance to win. Don't pass up this opportunity!
Good luck to everyone who enters the contest. I cannot wait to see your videos.
Thank you for serving our country.

Trees for Troops Christmas Tree Program + a Giveaway

Disclaimer: This is a sponsored post written by me on behalf of FedEx. Gift baskets have been provided in exchange for a review and for a giveaway. All opinions are 100% my own.

Trees For Troops

FedEx has teamed up with the Christmas SPIRIT Foundation once again to deliver real Christmas trees to service members stationed across the United States and overseas, free of charge.

Trees for Troops

This year marks the 10th year that the program has been running. In the next few weeks, FedEx will be delivering 17,000 Christmas trees to over 60 military bases located in the U.S. and overseas. That's a lot of trees!

Trees for Troops

Trees for Troops

Trees for Troops is part of FedEx Special Delivery, a nationwide program that supports local organizations by donating transportation services and other assistance to help them fulfill their missions. Since the Trees for Troops program launched in 2005, FedEx has shipped more than 139,000 real Christmas trees to service members and their families.

I've never had a real Christmas tree before so I think next year we'd love to participate in this program. Thank you Christmas SPIRIT Foundation and FedEx!

How You Can Get Involved
You can support Trees for Troops through your tax-deductible donation or by becoming a sponsor. The Christmas SPIRIT Foundation is a 501(c)(3) public charity. Your tax-deductible charitable contribution will help those in service to their country and their families receive a Real Christmas Tree and keep the spirit of a traditional Christmas celebration alive.

For updates and event photos, check out the Trees for Troops Facebook page.

FedEx has generously offered to give away a gift basket filled with popular holiday gifts. I don't know what these gifts are - it's a mystery! All I know is that the gift basket is valued at $100. ;)

Giveaway is open to US residents only and ends 12/16.
