My Current Obsession-Lakewood Organic Juices

I want to let you in on a little secret: I am not a multi-millionaire because of this blog.

Can you believe that? I bet you thought I was rolling around in money while laughing and throwing it up in the air.

Sorry to burst your perception bubble of me. I barely make enough to pay my hosting fees. But, I love this too much that it’s worth all the time and effort spent.

I choose not to do paid reviews, mainly because I’d feel like this guy. If I love a product, I’m going to tell you about. Simple as that. No money is exchanging hands. And, I like to keep my ads to a minimum so that my site is easy to navigate and not cluttered up.

I’d love to make more money (who wouldn’t), but I’m more interested in having loyal readers than dollars. The money will come with time, I hope.


All of that said-there are a few times when blogging has its perks. A reader, who happens to be Lakewood’s eastern regional sales manager, contacted me and corrected my description of their product on my Facial Moisturizer Recipe.

(Thanks, Pamela for catching my mistake!)


Then Pamela sent all of these juices to me-for free, with absolutely no strings attached. She didn’t ask me to talk about them, or even ask for a mention.



My frugalness went out the window and I opened them all simultaneously. I couldn’t even wait to get properly cute for the photos or for Biceps to take them. I came straight home from Crossfit and poured myself a glass of the Pomegranate Juice first.

This is Delicious with a capital “D”. I have never had pomegranate juice, but now I may not be able to live without it. And it has a huge amount of Vitamin C and tons of other great minerals and vitamins.

I now like to drink it out of a wine glass and feel fancy.


Then, I tried a shot of Aloe Vera. I love that this Aloe Vera has no preservatives, no sodium benzoate, no potassium sorbate and no citric acid and no preservatives.

Externally, it’s great for moisturizing your skin, healing wounds, etc. And it’s a great digestive aid and a great anti inflammatory.


Biceps and I are feeling a little run down and I noticed that this had 160% of vitamin C. This was so delicious, I drank the entire 8 oz without taking a breather.


Lastly, I tried this and loved it. Plus, with a little splash of vodka, you have a fancy mixed drink. Not that I would know anything about that. But, I bet it would be good that way, too. (Hint, hint eastern regional sales manager for Grey Goose Vodka.)


Thanks again to Pamela and Lakewood Organic Juices for hooking a sister up. I owe you a huge hug and a high five! I highly recommend all of their products-and remember-I’m not getting paid to say this. This is my honest, 100% pure opinion.

And, Grey Goose manager, I’m waiting for my box.
