Heartland Brands

16 Nov


Based in Tennessee, this brand has been a personal favorite of mine since I was a kid . I have never been a big cereal fan but when I do eat it, granola is my cereal of choice. Heartland has been a stable brand since its introduction in 1968 focusing on a healthy and delicious option for breakfast. According to their website, the 1870s proved to be a time where doctor’s began getting concerned about the health of the nation and people’s diets. One of the first foods to help with this epidemic was granola. However, the first granola was seen as too crunchy for people’s taste. It was not until the 1960s that people started to take a new approach at looking at whole grain products and foods. Heartland was listening and was there to introduce a “new” kind of cereal…their granola. This is a great local product with an even greater story behind its production. From a local girl on a local brand, Heartland Brands is a great way to go when it comes to a healthy and tasty breakfast option.


Product Review: Big Sexy Hair Volumizing Gel

20 Oct

This product is for the ladies who have fine hair. I happen to suffer from this curse of super fine hair, meaning that getting volume…well is non-existant. I have seemingly tried every product in the world that says “Volumizing” but this one truly works. It doesn’t make you hair sticky or weigh it down. All you do is apply to wet hair before drying and your hair will be body-licious. It isn’t too expensive either and most supermarkets carry it in their health and beauty section. Big A+ in my book.

The brand, itself, has an immense presence in North America as it is featured in over 60,000 salons and also is distributed in over 36 countries. There are seven different lines of products including Big Sexy Hair, Curly Sexy Hair, Healthy Sexy Hair, Short Sexy Hair, Straight Sexy Hair, Silky Sexy Hair, and Sexy Hair Organics. They are so well known due to their 70 products that do exactly what they are named to do. Sexy Hair Concepts is such a successful company due to their aggressive branding, bold packaging, and global marketing. When the sales for hair products was down nearly 10%, they grew 5%. This just shows how much this company works on their branding and presence within the hairstyling world. If you haven’t already, look for their signature “big red can” and try them out. I promise you won’t be let down.

Product Review: Clorox Clean-Up Cleanser with Bleach

17 Oct

I’m going to tell on myself a little bit here…I’m a clean freak. If anything is dirty or out of place, it makes me nervous. Now you can only imagine my discomfort as the countertops in my fiance’s kitchen are white linoleum. EVERYTHING in the world shows and stains this awful material. He actually turned me on to this stuff, and let me tell you, I will never go without it. It is truly amazing. One little squirt from this bottle and everything is sparkling white. It takes very minimal scrubbing as well for those stuck-on issues. I would highly recommend this product to anyone; however it does have a pretty strong bleach smell, but it subsides shortly after use. A+ in my book!

The Clorox brand has always been a part of my household. When I was younger, every time I saw a Clorox product I knew I was going to have to clean…which is never an enjoyable experience for a nine year old. So, as a child I was conditioned to cringe at the thought of chores as my mom pulled out the bottle of Clorox from under the kitchen sink. Now, being a college student and neat freak, I love CLorox, especially the item shown above. Clorox’s commitment is focused on “improving the health and well-being of families across America.” They have positioned themselves as being a family oriented brand that truly cares about its customers. That is why it has such a loyal consumer base. Not to mention all the great causes it supports like the American Red Cross, The Children’s Fund, and their Say Boo! to Flu Campaign in the fall, just to name a few. It will be a brand that I will continually use and purchase.
