#BackToSchool with Leaf & Love Organic Lemonade | Review

*Disclsoure: I received the following items mentioned in this post at no cost to facilitate my review. All opinions are my own and were not influenced. 

By now your kids or grandkids have been back to school and probably just starting to get back into the swing of things; waking up early, catching the bus on time, and learning new skills and information to keep their little brains expanding. When you pack your child's lunch, if you are like me, you'll probably be wanting to fill their lunch with nutritional and healthy foods. But what about a drink? It is hard to find an organic and healthy drink that you can feel good about giving to your child.

I was recently introduced to Leaf & Love Organic Lemonade- the first all natural, USDA organic lemonade juice box with zero grams of sugar! I'm so excited to share this yummy drink with you, because we are hooked on it and are loving this lemonade juice box!


Leaf & Love's mission is to provide families with a delicious alternative to the current array of empty-calorie children's beverages. They use high quality ingredients, no sugar (sweetened only with organic stevia) and are Non-GMO, Gluten Free, Vegan and Low Glycemic. Plus, they do not use any artificial colors or flavorings! With only 5 calories per serving, this fun lemonade juice box is an excellent choice to add to your child's lunch box every day!

When our Leaf & Love Organic Lemonade arrived at our home, my kids could not wait to drink it.  I wanted them to drink it cold, so after a couple hours of sitting a few lemonade juice boxes in the fridge, they enjoyed their first Leaf & Love lemonade juice box at snack time. Their immediate response was good...they like it and still do, a lot! 


When first tasting Leaf & Love, I was pleasantly surprised. It is a very refreshing drink and tastes very good. It is not as sweet as other over lemonades you may be used to, BUT all of those have sugar in them which is not good for you. This lemonade is much better for you and definitely has been a winner in our house. My kids specifically ask for Leaf & Love when they want a drink and it does bring a smile to my face...as well as theirs!


Since Leaf & Love does come in a juice box, they are of course perfect to fit in a lunch box. I love grabbing a few these of these boxes and putting them in my diaper bag when we head out for the day...you could even fit 1 or more in your purse depending on how big your purse/bag is.

Overall, I am very happy with Leaf & Love Organic Lemonade and definitely recommend you give this drink a try. I'm a fan of companies using organic and non-GMO products, plus not using sugar is a very nice added bonus!

limeapple, Girl's Clothing | Review

*Disclosure: I received the following items mentioned in this post at no cost to facilitate my review. All opinions are my own and were not influenced. 


I just love clothing companies that support a healthy life style in fitness for kids, don't you? Too many times do I see kids that are not encourage to exercise or to even get outside and run around. If you are not familiar with them, I'm happy to introduce you Limeapple, who does just that--promotes an active lifestyle for young girls!

At Limeapple, they make fun active-wear for girls for any activity. Limeapple Sport was created to meet the ever changing fashion and performance needs of young active girls. Their fashions are for upbeat girls who are focused on active and healthier lifestyles (adapted from www.limeapple.ca).

The Limeapple mission is simple: to offer girls exceptional clothing for healthy living and to have fun. In line with their designs that radiate happiness and joy of life, Limeapple's business philosophy aims to support the highest ethical standards and fair practices. Their integrity hinges upon keeping the source of our inspiration and construction pure in order to keep standards and quality high.

I was recently asked to review an outfit for my very active daughter so I picked out the following...


Come on Out Cap Sleeve Top $35.64  & the Come on Out A-line Top $37.62
~Both come available in sizes 4-14
~Moisture wicking, and is preshrunk with a 4 way stretch.

Come on Out Asana Pant $49.50
~Comes available in sizes 5-14
~Moisture wicking
~Has a smooth & flat waistband
~Designed for dance, skate or any other sweaty activity

The very first thing I noticed about each clothing item we received (besides the obvious cuteness), is the quality and durability they have. They have a thick material that has a nice stretch to them. I absolutely love the colors and am happy with their overall look. Now, my daughter just turned 6 years old, but she is very lean and on the petite side so I went with a size 5 in pants and that was the right choice! They are still a tiny bit loose on her at the waist, but we have this problem with all size 5 pants, so I believe they are true to size.

A really nice feature the Come on Out A-Line Top has, is a side pocket that has a zipper! This is especially nice to store chapstick, a house key, some cash, a cell phone or anything else your daughter may need.


My daughter is very much in love with her new outfit! It's perfect for running around in and riding her bike! I definitely recommend you checking out Limeapple, we really love this active-wear outfit and have our eyes on more than a few other items of theirs as well!


Limeapple has more than just active wear for girls; they also have a clothing line with dresses, tops, hoodies, jackets and more (so many cute items), and a swim line!

*They offer free shipping to USA and Canada on orders over $50! Head on over and start shopping now! They have some great Fall items like Jean Jackets, cardigans and hoodies!
