I review a lot of products throughout the year so I can share them all with you. Some of them stand out more than the others. It’s time to show you what the best of 2019 brought us.

Rooted Shots

Rooted Shots are plant-based, dried wellness shots and have become part of my morning routine. They give me a boost of vitamin C (500 mg each) and natural energy (I quit caffeine over a year ago). There are three options:

Strawberry and Orange

Ginger, Lemon & Cayenne Pepper

Turmeric, Orange, Ginger & Black Pepper (my favorite)

They are all 100% vegan and great for your health. Turmeric is an anti-inflammatory, ginger is good for digestion, lemon has anti-bacterial properties, and cayenne pepper can help relieve congestion from allergies and colds.

Just mix with 3 to 12 ounces of water and enjoy.

CBDistillery

I love the variety of CBD products CBDistillery offers. My favorites are the gummies and the tinctures. They help me feel calm when my anxiety starts to increase.

Rule Breaker Snacks

Rule Breaker snacks are shockingly delicious! Now, when I get a vegan snack to try I am super skeptical. I’ve rarely tried one I liked, but these snacks are so good. They taste just like brownies but are made from chickpeas! Even my extremely picky-eater husband loves them. My favorite is the chocolate chunk blondie.

Pilot G2 Retractable Premium Gel Ink Roller Ball Pens Bold Point

I absolutely love these pens. They’re my favorite for everything. I prefer the black ones but do have some blue and red ones on hand because sometimes you just need a change. I love how smooth they write and prefer the bold point. They’re always in my pen cup!

Altec Lansing Comfort Q Active Noise Cancelling Headphones

The Altec Lansing Comfort Q headphones are incredible. They are always nearby because when you work from home you always need some noise cancelling headphones within reach. They allow me to focus on my work. They are super comfortable and lightweight so I can wear them as long as I need to. The battery life is up to 26 hours and they provide access to Siri and Google Voice Assistant through my phone. They fold up easy for storage in a hard case.

Ball Collector’s Edition Vintage Regular Mouth Mason Jars

I had no idea how much I would love these Ball Mason Jars when I received them. I use them for everything: smoothies, cotton balls, hot chocolate mix, and more. The jars are 16 ounces and are just so versatile. These jars are a collector’s edition that reflect the design made in 1910–1923.

This plush robe may be made for expecting moms and nursing moms, but I love it too. It’s so incredibly comfortable. I love wrapping it around myself after the shower or for just lazing around the house. Makes a great gift.

The flavors in McClure’s Sweet and Spicy pickles are to die for. I love them alone, with some plain chips, or in a sandwich. They are delectable. Makes a great gift!

Personalized Cat Food Bowls

These personalized cat food bowls from Susabellas are adorable. I love that I have my cat’s name on them. It comes as a set of two bowls, one with a fish and the other with a face. My cat Cicero loves them, or maybe he just loves the food in them. Makes a great gift.

These Vitafusion multivitamins have changed my life. I have eczema that itches, burns, hurts, and is just downright annoying. After about a week of taking these every day things have changed. My symptoms have gotten so much better. I’ll never stop taking them!

PetSafe Self-Cleaning Litter Box

PetSafe’s Self-Cleaning Litter Box is incredible. No more scooping. Just set it and forget it for about a month, depending on how many cats you have. I get my new litter sent to me every month and that’s the only time I have to worry about the litter box. I just change out the box on the bottom and throw it away. I replace it with a new cardboard box and fresh litter and forget about it for another month! That’s not even the best part. There is NO SMELL! Ever. It’s a miracle.
