What candy you give at a tradeshow says about you

I am self proclaimed candy connoisseur.

After years of going to trade shows and doing extensive research, I am reporting my findings in the different types of companies that have vendor tables.

The candy at your table says a lot about your business.

Let me explain…

A bowl of m&m or trail mix with a scoop:

We are trying to be economical and we don’t care about germs.

Peppermints :

We know you want candy and we want your breath to be minty fresh in hopes you decide to talk to us

Wrapped Fun size candy:

We are a top tier company and we want you to party with us

Wrapped Snack size candy:

We know what you want but didn’t want to splurge for the fun size but hopefully you‘ll check us out anyway

Jolly ranchers :

There wasn’t any other candy available and we apologize in advance that your candy bag will be a sticky mess by the end if the day

FOODIE FRIDAY: BOSS Raw Superfood Bar #foodiefriday

This Foodie Friday is all about SNACKS!!!

I tried the BOSS Raw Superfood Bar.

BOSS stands for Blended Original Superfood Snack (https://amzn.to/3NtU7XM)

The ingredients for the bar I tried included banana, pumpkin see, and cacao powder.

It is Soy Free, Paleo, Gluten free, Vegan

TOW: I wanted to like this. It is so healthy and full of good ingredients! I wanted to eat this as a meal replacement. I had high hopes!

As you can probably tell by now, I did not like it. I am hoping I might like a different flavor.

It was very dense, which was too be expected. But I had a hard time chewing it because I did not like the flavor. I like bananas, but this tasted like a lot of overripe bananas. The taste was too overwhelming for me.

But if you like raw foods, you might like this.

Foodie Friday #summerwines

This Foodie Friday is all about WINE!!!

It is summer time and that means relaxing at the beach or chilling by the pool.

We also love cookouts during these longer days.

We are still technically in a pandemic, but I think it has gotten a little easier to navigate. Social events are happening but for the most part, we like to be outside.

Hotter temps mean choosing wines that are lower in alcohol, lighter in body, refreshing flavor, and pair well with BBQ and other grilled foods.

Vines to Wine (www.vinestowineacademy.com ) hosted a class and introduced several different wines that I am now going to my list of summer wines.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Cotes de Provence Blanc

TOW comment: Light with fruity notes. Would go well with grilled chicken or dessert

Riesling

TOW comment: Light sweet with medium acidity. Medium finish

Pinto Noir Rose

TOW comment:  fresh and a little fruity with a short finish.

Beaujolais-Villages

TOW comment: dry with cherry notes. Would go well with salmon

All of the wines we tried were good but I think my favorite was the Cote de Provance. I liked the smooth, long finish.

It’s great to go to wine tastings because you can discover wines that best match your palate!

Under Fyre (Alien Dragon Shifters Book 1)

Synopsis
Betrayed by her people, does she dare trust a dragon?

The alien dragon shapeshifters who discover Earth come in peace—at first. Then, inexplicably, they threaten to attack. In an attempt to show goodwill and appease the dragons, Earth sends a human woman to become a concubine to one of the Draconian king’s sons, Prince K’ev.

K’ev would sooner give up his ability to breathe fire than accept a human, but when he meets Rhianna, sparks fly, and his dragon realizes she’s his mate.

Rhianna falls for the hot-blooded prince, unaware she’s a key link in a desperate scheme to defeat the dragons, a strike that could backfire with devastating consequences. Will she figure out what Earth has planned in time to save her dragon mate? And if she does, will K’ev be able to save her planet from the fire of angry king’s retaliation?

Opinion
K’ev has good reason not to trust humans but he knows that he has to follow orders and take one as his consort. There is a lot at stake. While the man does not trust Rhianna, the dragon knows she is their mate.

Rhianna has been fascinated with draconians ever since she was a child. She even studied their culture in college. So she jumped at the chance to help her country (and the world) to build relations with the alien dragon race.

Little did Rhianna know, would be thrown into a bad situation. Trying to help, she ends up being betrayed by her friends and left at the mercy of an alien dragon shifter race. She is unwillingly part of a deception. And it does not do her any favors that she keeps telling lies to cover for her friends because dragons can detect any deception.

Amidst it all, K’ev and Rhianna fall for each other. But there are external forces that would rather see aliens and humans at war and they will do whatever it takes to make that happen.

Loved the book!!! And the twist at the end…lets just say I am ready for this alien dragon shifter series.

Thanks to the author for allowing me to read this in advance of its release and provide honest feedback.

TOW Final Word: Buy, Borrow, Pass?
BUY. I loved this story and I love dragon shifters.

Disclaimer: While I am a Young Living brand partner , my review here is my honest, unbiased opinion.

TOW: I’m loving this natural deodorant!

I’m a little sweaty but not much and no foul odor. It blows my mind that I’m not stinking by the end of the day.

I have heard horror stories from people that have tried natural deodorant and have said that they do not work because it was not strong enough to keep their odor under control.

I tried this deodorant because it said that it was clinically proven to help reduce bad odors. I’m the try that will try a product if the science behind it sounds logical. In this case, I’m glad I did because it works better than I expected.

TOW Final Word: This deodorant is the BEST! I thought about making my own … but this does the trick and is way easier! You gotta try this out!
