Speaking of honest reviews, I have two for you today! The greatest part is that I don’t have to worry about sharing the cons and negatives here. You know why? Because both were pretty cool. Two totally unrelated products, socks and superfood powder, but hey, this is my blog and bloggers are the most random people I know anyway!
Starting with Kushyfoot! Kushyfoot makes everything your feet could ever need. They have socks, tights, slippers, foot covers, “flats to go”. When I saw they had yoga socks, you now the kind that have perfect rubber grips on the bottom so you don’t slip if you don;t have access to a yoga mat?, I was on board to try them out. They sent me 3 types of socks (5 pairs in all) from their new Spring-Summer 2014 collection.
When I opened the box and looked at the socks, I was a bit skeptical. People say I have a large foot I am about a 10ish more or less depending on the shoe. So when I saw that these socks said one size fits all, my hopes kind of dropped. But I still had to give them a try before I could tell. (P.S. Please excuse the horrible feet pictures ahead…they are scary).
First up with the yoga socks. They slipped on pretty easy, even though they have the toe holes. I never used socks with toe holes, so I was worried about that too. But you just pull it on and they actually felt really comfy! I totally love them and they fit my foot perfectly. These will be good for break out yoga sessions anytime anywhere!
Next was the foot cover. These are used when you need a really super low unnoticeable sock, or something really light in a sneaker. These were okay, but a bit awkward in the heel. Still, the material was really comfortable and would be great for a no-show.
These are the low rise sport socks. They reminded my of my favorite Thorlo sock, except more reasonably priced, haha! They don’t have the padding, but the fit and style in the same. These are my favorite! I always wear socks around the house and to bed (I hate walking on cold floors) so these really are perfect comfy sock for me. Not to heavy for the summer, but still keep you toes nice and cozy.
So all in all, I would recommend checking out Kushyfoot for some affordable comfy socks! Now time to switch gears to some superfood! Last time I agreed to try any of these types of powders, I was not impressed. I am really picky with this kind of stuff, but what the heck, if it is safe and allergy-free plus packed with nutrition, I will give it a try and hope for the best.
Skoop is a superfood blend created to bring you optimal energy and nutrition throughout your day and make you super! Their two blends are part of the A-Game. One is Chocofresh and the other is Sweetgreens. They are both made of 41 organic non-gmo ingredients that create a crazy mix of vitamins, antioxidants, minerals, micronutrients, and phytonutrients to be delivered to the body. It is created to promote a healthy gut and digestions (yay!), nutrient absorption, immunity, promote an anti-inflammatory response, fight stress, promote recovery, support your heart, circulation, metabolism, and all around make you feel good!
In one little skoop, you get 10 serving of fruit and veggies! Um, what? Yea, I was blown away too. In that 50 calorie serving you are getting all organic green grasses like wheat and barley grass (yes, they are gluten-free. I was scared about the barley grass, but one of their creators has Celiac himself so…they know what they are doing haha!), super reds like apple and goji, super veggies like broccoli and beets, probiotics, omega 3s from flax, chia, and gum acacia, adaptonges like reishi and coryceps powder, and finally antioxidants from things like green and white tea extracts! All I can say is it is one loaded little skoop!
The best way to use skoop is in a smoothie or shake so I decided to try the chocofresh in a smoothie with some blueberries, kale, and spinach. It actually smelled really good when I opened the bag so i had some high hopes. Once I blended it all up, I took my first sip and….I liked it! Now, don’t get me wrong, it did have a “green” taste, but not in a bad sense. It was very subtly chocolatey, but tasted really refreshing! Total win!
I am really happy I found a superfood powder that actually tastes good! It will be so easy to add to smoothies, almond milk, hot cereals, pancakes, really anything! I definitely need to play around with some pancakes recipes 😉 They also sent me 4 servings of sweetgreens and a cute Skoop blender bottle (that actually has a blender ball in it!). Perfect for actually getting it shaken up in a simply cup of almond milk. So do I recommend Skoop? You bet I do! And not only that, but Skoop is letting me do a fun giveaway so one of you lovely children get to try this stuff out yourself and see if it makes you feel super!
