Tropical Traditions Gold Label Virgin Coconut Oil Review/Giveaway CLOSED

Closed
#23 pmj
We all cook with oil whether we are frying something or a recipe calls for the ingredient. We all use it from time to time and quit frequently.  I had the opportunity to take part in reviewing Tropical Traditions Gold Label Virgin Coconut Oil which I was so happy to the chance. I have always wondered about Coconut Oil but have never tired it before due to the fact I had never even tried Coconut before and to my surprise I really liked it a whole lot.

The first thing I did was go and watch this video “How We Discovered Virgin Coconut Oil - An Interview with Brian Shilhavy, CEO Tropical Traditions” which had a lot of information and was really interesting.
Tropical Traditions Gold Label Standard Virgin Coconut Oil is made by coconut's that are fresh (within 24-48 hours of harvest). Virgin Coconut Oil is a food and is used for cooking. As a cooking oil, its chemical structure is kept in tact and is resistant to mutations of fatty acid chains. Research has showed that the medium chain fatty acids found in the coconut oil boosts the body’s metabolism, raises body temperatures, and helps provide greater energy which then can lead to weight loss. 


I decided to try it out by going to their Coconut Recipe Blog and came across some really tasty recipes and picked one out to try our for myself. I decided to go with the Double Coconut Chocolate Chip Cookies. With little ones you can't go wrong with this recipe. So, I followed the recipe
and to my surprise they were actually really really good. Hubby and the kids also loved them within a few days they were all gone. It was super easy to use in the recipe. It didn't take me long to start trying it in other food as we were cooking.

Spare Soles Review

How many times have you been at work and your high heels are just killing your poor feet. In your head you are just screaming I need something for my feet now! Spare Soles is that solution for you sore and tired feet. I remember the days when I had worked in the office and sitting at the desk and thinking I wish I had house slippers to wear. With Spare Soles they are super comfy and classy looking at the same time and they will go with any outfit. This would also be great if you are at a nice dinner date and you are going to be sitting for quit a long time with several courses with these you would be able to give yourself a break. Along with this they would be great to wear at prom, school dances, weddings, bridal showers, and several other places depending on where you want to were them.
 Spare Soles/Spare footwear for when your feet have had enough but you haven't. A revolutionary, compact, hygienic and fashionable solution to sore feet from uncomfortable footwear. Spare Soles fashion-forward ballet flats and flip flops come in their own matching wristlet. They are meant to be easily toted in your purse or pocket to put on when your feet need relief.


Spare Soles was established by a mother and inventor in early 2007, C-SAW Enterprises manufacturer of Spare Soles takes a fresh approach to develop solutions for a modern women’s lifestyle. They are dedicated to developing fashionable, compact footwear and purse accessories.

They offer several different styles which include: the original, the diamond, the metro, and flip flops. Also offered is accessories for the spare soles like show clips, foot pillows and roll upz. They also recommend that half sizes go up a size- such as 8.5 go up to the 9-10. It also depends on the width of your foot. If you have narrow 8.5 feet you can stay at the 7-8. if you tend to have wider feet go up the to the next size. They can be worn outside because the bottoms have a waterproof sole.
Along with all the items they offer Spare Soles are washable. You just turn them inside out and wash them gentle cycle in the washing machine and lay flat to dry.
My Thoughts: I sent one pair to review in silver which I love the color silver so this was perfect. This was such an amazing idea for one when I go to church I always wear huge heels and most of the time you are just sitting for several hours well now I can just put these on while sitting there and switch right before we leave. So, this has helped my feet in so many ways. My mom is actually wanting a pair now for church so I am going to get her a pair for mother's day which I know she will be very happy because she won't stop talking about mine. They are super comfy which is one thing I was worried about. Since they fold up I was a little concerned if I would feel the fold on the bottom of my feet but to my test I didn't at all. Another thing I didn't relize until I got the product to review was that the little bag turns into a big tote like bag which is so nice to have something to put your other shoes in. I know these will be a item I take with me in the future for any weddings or bridal showers or even house party's with my girls. No more high heels for long periods of time!


You can Purchase: Right from their website while the prices start at $17.50. You can also see if there is a retailer near you here.
