Yum! Songo Coffee!

My Dear Friends,

I don't know very many people who aren't coffee drinkers.  Coffee has become a 'necessity' in some ways.  It helps you wake up, stay awake, power though those long days at work.  It's something that a lot of people rely on.  There are so many different brands, types, strengths, beans, etc. out there that it might take a while to find your perfect cup of joe.

I recently tried a brand called Songo Coffee

Is it your dream to find that perfect cup of coffee? But among the thousands of chain coffeehouses and the dizzying array of trendy brands, where do you start? Actually, it's simple. Here at SONGO Coffeehouses, we know it all starts with the beans... and we're here to spill the beans. Truth is, many people have not had the pleasure of enjoying a real quality coffee.No matter the price, brand, or packaging, it all comes down to the beans. SONGO roasts only the finest Arabica beans in our one of a kind, custom-built roaster. The product is unrivaled: the aroma, the body, and that very sip... it's like un songo, a dream.

Songo Coffee is available in four different blends:  Sole, Vento, Cielo & Nuvola.  They are available for purchase in 10 or 16 oz. size bags directly from the Songo Coffee website.

My BeSpoken Jewelry Ring

My Dear Friends,

I just wanted to share the ring that Gretchen Baneyx of BeSpoken Jewelry made for me.  I'm completely in love with it - I wear it every day.  Gretchen is just so enormously talented, you've got to check out her shop.  I know you'll find something (or many things!) that you like!

My ring is from her collection of Stacking Silver & Gemstone Rings.  Mine is actually a set of three rings - all recycled sterling silver bands.  Each ring has a different feature to it; one has an ocean-colored swiss blue topaz, one has a perfect silver sphere, and one has a lovely green peridot.  Gretchen, for lack of a better word, totally got 'me'.  I am a blues & greens kind of girl so my rings are completely perfect!

Here are the specifics:
6mm Swiss Blue topaz.
4mm peridot.
3 mm fine silver.

When five rings are stacked together they are just over 1/4" (approx 7mm) wide at the band and 3/8” wide at the stones (depending on their arrangement).  My ring is a size 8, but Gretchen can make any size from 5-9, including half sizes and has a large variety of gemstones to choose from. 

Made to order rings usually take about 3-4 days before shipping after payment is received and cleared. Each one is handmade by Gretchen so please expect very slight variations from the picture.  Your item(s) will be lovingly packaged in a gorgeous style that is all her own.

Be (out)spoken,
Be spoken (about).

Discover Curamin (12 Days of Gifts Galore Sponsor)

My Dear Friends,

I love the idea that you can help maintain your health with vitamins, minerals, herbs and plant oils instead of harsh medicines.  I don't like to take pain killers, because of all the nasty side effects, but I have frequent migraines, so I thought there was no other choice.  There's really no way to explain how bad migraine pain is.

I've done research over the years on different natural ways to overall improve your health without putting harmful chemicals in the body.  Curamin is a great answer if you're looking for pain relief.  It's an all natural pain reliever!  Blending four powerful, effective and clinically proven ingredients into one award-winning product provides natural pain relief.

Curamin® from EuroPharma’s TerryNaturally brand is an award-winning natural pain reliever and a must for athletes and every household interested in proven and effective natural medicines. Retailers, consumers and major natural products magazines have given Curamin accolades and awards including: 2011 Vity Awards for Best Supplement in three categories from Vitamin Retailer, Better Nutrition's Best of Supplements Award (four years in a row- 2008, 2009, 2010 and 2011) and WholeFoods 2011 Natural Choice Award as Best Specialty Supplement.

Here’s the scoop on Curamin:
Curamin is an all-natural formula that enhances the body’s natural defense mechanism for the relief of occasional pain. The synergistic blend of BCM-95 curcumin, boswellia and other herbs in Curamin is 20X more powerful than using just plain curcumin. This fast-acting formula combines ingredients with multiple mechanisms of action to support the body’s natural anti-inflammatory response and relieve occasional muscle pain due to exercise and overuse.

Product Number: 10210 - 21 Capsules - Travel Size $19.95
Product Number: 10260 - 60 Capsules - $35.95
Product Number: 10220 - 120 Capsules - $64.95
This fast-acting formula combines ingredients with multiple mechanisms of action to support the body’s natural anti-inflammatory response and relieve occasional muscle pain due to exercise and overuse.  Curcumin and boswellia inhibit different inflammatory compounds in the body.  DLPA promotes positive mood and nattokinase increase circulation to move the beneficial compounds to the areas of the body where they are needed.


DL-phenylalanine is an amino acid consisting of equal parts D-phenylalanine and L-phenylalanine.  D-phenylalanine inhibits the breakdown of compounds called enkephalins.  Enkephalins are associated with positive mood and have been shown to relieve occasional muscle pain due to exercise or overuse.  L-phenylalanine is converted into tyrosine, which in turn is used to produce the brain chemicals norepinephrine and dopamine.

Boswellia (Boswellia serrata)

Clinically tested boswellia (BosPure) helps reduce the activity of the inflammatory enzyme, 5-LOX (lipoxygenase).  A compound (beta boswellic acid) found in boswellia which interferes with its beneficial activity has been removed, greatly increasing the effectiveness of this extract.


Curcumin, a compound found in the spice turmeric, inhibits multiple inflammation pathways in the body.  It is also a potent antioxidant.  Some of the benefits associated with curcumin include immune system modulation, protection from oxidative stress and support for the body’s natural anti-inflammatory response.  The specialized extract in this formula has the highest absorption of any curcumin extract available for maximum health benefits.


The enzyme nattokinase helps promote blood flow, aiding the other ingredients in the formula to reach all areas of the body.

DLPA (dl Phenylalanine), Boswellia (Boswellia serrata) Extract (BosPure) standardized to contain >70% boswellic acids with AKBA >15%, Curcumin (Curcuma longa) Extract (BCM-95®) standardized for curcuminoid complex (curcumin, demethoxycurcumin and bisdemethoxycurcumin), Nattokinase

All ingredients established in human studies for safety and effectiveness.  Does not interfere with stomach, liver or kidney function.

Other Ingredients:

vegetable cellulose capsule, silicon dioxide and vegetable source magnesium stearate

Contains no:

sugar, salt, soy, yeast, wheat, gluten, corn, dairy products, artificial coloring, artificial flavoring or preservatives.  It contains only natural ingredients.  Color variations are normal.

My Dear Friends,

By now, I'm sure you've all heard about Scentsy.

Scentsy began with a simple idea—a safe, wickless alternative to scented candles—and quickly grew into one of the most successful direct selling companies.

Scentsy warmers are a safe alternative to candles.  With many scents to choose from, you are bound to find many that you like!

I was fortunate enough to come into contact with an amazing lady by the name of Liz Fogg.  Liz is an Independent Scentsy Consultant and she has kindly offered up a great prize for the Fashion In The Forest readers!

You can win a Sunkissed Citrus Travel Tin and a Pumpkin Marshmallow Room Spray as part of the 12 Days of Gifts Galore Giveaway Hop!

All About CocoaWell (12 Days of Giveaways Galore Sponsor)

My Dear Friends,

All the studies say that chocolate is beneficial to your health, particularly dark chocolate. What is not beneficial is the extra calories, fats, sugar and cholesterol that typically comes with a bar of chocolate.  ResVitale, after years of research, developed a line of supplements called CocoaWell that provides the benefits of cocoa, cutting out all that unnecessary junk that's so bad for you.


About CocoaWell:
Following centuries of tradition, indigenous people off the coast of Panama drink up to 40 cups of fresh cocoa per week and experience incred­ible health benefits. According to Harvard studies, they experi­ence 1/9 the rate of heart disease and 1/16 the rate of other age-related illnesses as their neighbors on the mainland.

Cocoa has been shown to improve circulation, arterial strength & blood vessel health, maintain healthy cholesterol levels, lower blood pressure and potentially increase insulin sensitivity.  A recent study published in the Chemistry Central Journal demonstrated that cocoa contains more antioxidants than other renowned superfruits like acai, blueberry, cranberry, and pomegranate.

Research conducted by Norman Hollenberg at Harvard University has documented that the Kuna Indians, who live on the San Blas islands off the coast of Panama, have 1/9 the incidence of heart attack, stroke, diabetes and cancer. They consume more cocoa than any other people in the world — up to 6 cups/day or 40 cups/week.

Natural cocoa is rich in the antioxidant flavanol epicathechin, one of the healthiest foods you can consume.  CocoaWell is a cocoa supplement that contains the catechin antioxidant equal to 8 dark chocolate bars--delivering the benefits of natural cocoa without the cholesterol, fat, sugar and calories. There are currently 3 formulations of CocoaWell supplements available. They are:
  • CocoaWell "COCOA"
    Our formula is enhanced with Pure Plant Flavanol Complex, an exclusive blend of plant sources that delivers the remarkable health benefits of catechin flavanols. These potent polyphenols are shown to support energy as well as heart, brain and immune health, and are among the most researched of all phytonutrients.  Retails for $29.99
    A 450 mg serving:
  • Offers protective heart-healthy antioxidants*
  • Promotes mental clarity, focus & elevated mood*
  • Provides enhanced natural energy & increased alertness*
  • CocoaWell Energy Resore:
    Stress robs our bodies of energy and contributes to fatigue and adrenal exhaustion. Our exclusive Adaptogen3 blend delivers high-quality, standardized extracts of 3 of the most powerful energizing herbs to help the body adapt to mental and physical stress: Ashwagandha, Rhodiola and Schisandra.
    One serving:
  • Enhances energy and focus*
  • Boosts mental and physical performance*
  • Helps fight fatigue and exhaustion*
  • CocoaWell Heart w/ COQ10
    Found in all human cells, CoQ10 is one of the most important, naturally occurring elements in the body for maintaining proper cardiovascular function. Your heart has high concen-trations of CoQ10 that decrease with age and studies show that cholesterol-lowering drugs, such as statins, may decrease CoQ10.
    One serving:
  • Enhances cellular energy*
  • Promotes heart and arterial health*
  • Supports healthy blood flow and circulation*
  • Features CoQ10 with cocoa and plant flavanols
Check out the antioxidant power of CocoaWell!

Go Max Go Foods (12 Days Of Gifts Galore Sponsor)

My Dear Friends,

I love chocolate.  Who doesn't?  When I discovered Go Max Go Foods!, I knew I had to try their amazing looking chocolate bars. 

The creators of Go Max Go Foods! set out to create extraordinarily delicious candy bars. They craved candy bars that were chocolatey-, nougaty-, caramely-, peanut-y, almond-y, coconut-y crazy indulgences! They decided to make a variety of bars that popped with all the luscious flavor of the traditional treats. What they didn't want in our candy bars was dairy, eggs, hydrogenated oils, trans fats, artificial ingredients, or cholesterol. 

They had a hunch your sweet tooth might be feeling the same way, and so they went to work on the concept. Happily, their efforts paid off and now even your inner angel (you know, the one who reminds you it's gotta be vegan, or you're dairy intolerant, or you need to kick those hydrogenated oils to the curb, etc.) can enjoy real candy bars again.

Combine great taste, good sense, sweeten with compassion, and what have you got? A Go Max Go candy bar! Their journey, over a year in the making, has finally brought to life the best tasting natural candy bars ever! They're pleased to offer to you the finest vegan versions of the candy bars you grew up with.

Here's the run-down of the Go Max Go Foods! delicious product line:

The Cleo's are a new take on the peanut butter cup.  Featuring chocolate made with rice milk & creamy peanut butter, this two-pack clocks in at 240 calories.  The peanut butter cups are also gluten-free, so they're safe for those who are lactose intolerant. 
(Similar to Reese's)

The SNAP! bar is a crunchy crisped rice bar made with rice milk chocolate.   It is a snap-crackly treat that is aesthetically pleasing!  The SNAP! is just 260 calories per bar and gluten-free. 
(Similar to Nestle Crunch)

The Jokerz bar is made up of delicious layers of dry roasted peanuts, buttery-tasting caramel, and rich peanut nougat in a chocolatey coating.  This bar is 280 calories and contains no wheat ingredients. 
(Similar to Snickers)

The Twilight bar is fluffy, chocolatey nougat topped with a layer of thick, buttery-tasting caramel all wrapped up in creamy, rice-milk chocolatey coating. This bar is 250 calories and contains no wheat ingredients.

Get A Little Woozie!

My Dear Friends,

We are in the midst of tailgating season - a season that I completely love.  There is something awesome about hanging out with your friends, grilling burgers and hot dogs and having a few cold ones.  Well, almost nothing.  As we get into the winter months, it gets colder.  Having a cold one when it's cold outside can freeze your hands!  Here's where the Woozie comes in.

The Woozie is a top-quality neoprene insulator for your beverages that is fashionable and functional.  They're designed to keep your drink temperatures constant during any season, and whether you're indoors or outdoors.

Woozies are portable, stretchable, washable, foldable and reusable.  With the recent addition of coordinating wine and entertaining accessories like acrylic trays with interchangeable liners, bottle bags and stoppers, Woozie products are ideal personalized presents for friends and family, stockings stuffers, and hostess gifts for holiday parties.
