Coffee House Flavors in the Comfort of Your Home with Inbru Giveaway 11/25


When it comes the My Wild Crazy Life household, happiness is decided by one simple thing:  a cup of coffee.  If this mama doesn't get a cup in the mornings, look out world!  Heck, some mornings it takes 3 cups before my motor is purring just right.

I have become quite the expert at homemade lattes, the problem is the coffee loves my hips more than my taste buds love the flavors.  I have the perfect solution: Inbru.


Inbru is some sort of space age goodness.  This stuff has no calories, yes I said no calories.  It also contains no soy, gluten, peanuts, tree nuts, wheat, fat, or carbs.  It's like I'm adding air to my coffee mug!  But this air is slamming!  It comes in flavors like Irish Creme, Danish Pastry, Raspberry Tart, Jamaican Craze, and so many more.  This stuff is Ja-making my taste buds water as I write this post!

I can tell you the Peppermint Stick, Pumpkin Pie, and Coconut Creme are just to die for.   You add the flavors straight to the brew basket with your grounds, let the coffee machine work it's magic, and Viola!  Coffee house flavored coffee.  I added some organic Agave nectar and some skim milk to make my own sugar-free skim milk latte at home.

I have been using the coconut for a week -it's my fave, and I have made a 12 cup pot a day.  I still have over a half a jar of the flavor left, so the price is definitely right!  You can decide which flavors are your favorite on the Inbru website, and you can catch all the latest promotions and news on Facebook, and Twitter!

TWO of my lucky readers are going to win two flavors of their own to try out!  Just enter on the Rafflecopter below and cross your fingers!

I AM a Supermom After All!

I got a call yesterday from my daughter's school teacher, and apparently she's volunteered my services to teach school for a day, teach the children how to blog, and to just magically speak a blogging poem by this morning!  So, I did what any mom would do!  I donned my Domestic Diva superhero cape, and fulfilled her desires.  Now, ya'll don't tell her I'm just human, because I kinda like this superhero roll!  Currently thinking about twitching my nose and the entire house will look like Mr. Belvedere was here!

Anywho, I wanted to share my little poem with you!  Enjoy!


Blogging is a very rewarding work, 
it's fun and cool and makes me thankful I payed attention in school
A period here, a colon there
proper punctuation adds just the right flare to bring back readers who care!!

Mix in great pictures of products galore,
which one is green and earth friendly, we want to explore!
Recycle, conserve energy, use cloth diapers, oh my
because I want to educate on treating the earth kind-that's why!

Meatless Monday, Tasty Tuesday and healthy recipes for me
are what my readers will want to see!
Funny antics, daily chores, and a craft tutorial or three
will keep me in the blogging business for all et

Week 13 Nutrisystem, #NSNation, #Spon

I am trucking right along with Nutrisystem and loving how easy it is!  I literally just eat and watch my stats get way lower.  I was suffering from some major fluid retention/bloating last week, and I am thankful that I have that solved.

I had taken that mini break from eating more than one meal a day, and I think my body had to readjust again.  I drank lots of tea this week which seems to be a good diuretic for me, and I also did a green clay wrap on my torso so that I could cleanse my body of all the impurities in my system.

The results were great with my combined eating efforts and the wrap, and I am back on track!

How to Save Money this Holiday Season!

I would be remiss if I didn't draw your attention back to a great website I love to shop at which GIVES ME CASH BACK for shopping with them.  So, you're skeptical, right?  I get it, who's gonna pay you to shop right?  But this is FOR REAL!  I already received some money from them!  Here's the downlow:  go to yhoti, choose a store to shop at, and it states clearly how much will be your cash back.  Make your Christmas purchases, and wait for delivery.  Simple, no?

I mean here I sit in my flannel jammies, fuzzy slippers and a cup of Peppermint coffee (hey, don't judge my comfy look) and I am shopping!  No crowds, I'm not freezing between stores, no rude attendants that are so tired from being on their feet for 10 hours.  Just peace, quiet, and an occasional boo boo to kiss-Mommy duty always comes first.

So check it out!  yhoti has over 30 new stores to add to the 100+ they already boasted!  Another great reason is because you can earn referral money for sharing this hot newer website with all your friends.   What do you have to lose?  High prices, rushing around crazy trying to do it all?  Have cup of cocoa, relax, and shop till you drop!

V8 Fusion + Energy Giveaway 11/21

It's no secret that I don't care for energy drinks, and never have.  Until now.  I have finally found one that isn't as bad as most are in my opinion:  V8 Fusion + Energy.  I am warning you that this energy drink doesn't contain any of those weird energy ingredients that you can't spell much less pronounce.  Also, it is missing that yucky sweet tart flavor, and it is lacking the extreme energy most energy drinks have which causes that fun jittery feeling.  So if you like a jolt of energy that makes you feel half crazed, then this isn't the drink for you!

Now, if you like your drinks to say things like 100% fruit and vegetable juice, full of vitamins, low calorie (only 50 per drink), no added sugars or artificial sweeteners, and only 80 milligrams of caffeine which is less than a cup of coffee and the kids loved the taste of it, then read on!  Please note I said the kids liked the taste of it.  My children are not allowed to have caffeine of any kind, and even on special occasions I try my best to make sure the drinks they consume are caffeine free.

Okay, so here's the skinny on the drink. Get it?  Skinny?  (it only has 50 calories per serving!)  It tastes just like V8 Fusion.  You know the juice that touts all those fruit and veggie servings in one 8 oz glass.  It only contains added caffeine, so it's like drinking coffee with the added healthy of fruit and veggies.

This drink works.  Boy, does it ever work.  I drank one before supper one night, and I was ready to kick myself at 2 am when I still couldn't sleep!  V8 Fusion + Energy probably still won't be on my list of everyday drinks, but they have succeeded in changing my negative opinion about energy drinks, and I will likely consume some more on rare occasions!
So check out these great drinks that get their energy from natural green tea, and be sure to follow them on Facebook so you don't miss out on any of their promotions!  You can also win some here!  I was blessed with some coupons to facilitate my review, and I am going to pass along the love by giving away 3 coupons good for a free 6 pack of drinks!  These coupons are exclusive for Safeway grocery market chain, so be sure to check out the Store locator to find the nearest store in your area as you enter!

Holiday Gift Guide: Brazen Design Studio


A little known secret about myself is that I love artwork.  I can take an entire day to enjoy an art gallery, mesmerized in the beauty of the artwork.  So, naturally I try to bring as much art as possible into my home.  Some are originals, some are reproductions, but who's keeping track.


When I think of presents I want people to buy me, someone email this to my husband, art is at the top of the list.  A little bird directed me to the artwork of Brazen Edwards-Hager of Brazen Design Studio, so I just had to share with you.  She offers everything from flowers, trees, animals, and more, but I love that her artwork includes but isn't limited to artwork, greeting cards, and trading cards.


She also offers a selection of iPhone cases, and one of my favorites is the Sakura Tree.  This case is not limited to the iPhone, and Samsung Galaxy S3/S2 owners, Galaxy Nexus Owners and Blackberry Bold 9900/9930 can also enjoy this specific design along with various others!


I feel positive that with her wide variety of artwork, you are going to find something to fit almost everyone on your holiday list, so head on over to check out her offerings at Brazen Design Studio!  Also while you are browsing, you are going to want to look at all her iPhone and cell phone cases shown at her Etsy Store.
