Swaggable Product Review on Much-Ado About Mango Dried Fruit

I don't know if I mentioned it before but I'm a member of yet another product review company called Swaggable. They send me free samples that are mostly sample sized. Occasionally, I'll receive a full sized product to try out. As with the other product review companies, all they ask for in return is my honest review. So, here is a review on the latest product that they sent me. Much-Ado About Mango Dried Fruit They sent me a full sized pack of the dried fruit as well as a coupon to try out another flavor for FREE. My diet mainly consists of veggies and fruits. I eat a vegetarian diet and mostly gluten-free 5-6 days a week. On my cheat days, I'll add in chicken or fish and maybe some ice cream. Anyway, I'm always happy to try out a healthy snack.

Here is a picture of the frames that I selected, as well as everything that came with them. I picked a pair of girly glasses with a leopard like pattern and slightly larger frames than wh

Be Still My Beating Heart

  Lately, we've been doing a lot and I guess all the stress has been adding up. About a week and a half ago, my husband and I were having a relaxing evening watching a movie until out of nowhere I got an extremely strong burning in my chest-worse than anything I've ever experienced and it lasted and lasted and then my heart started beating so hard. I was scared I was having a heart attack but then I said no, it's probably just a bad panic attack. I know, I know, most people would have called the ambulance but I honestly was scared to be wrong and have an ambulance and E.R.bill. Is that stupid?  Maybe. I did some soothing yoga poses and tried to keep a straight face, meditated a little bit, my husband massaged me and kissed me and tried to help me relax. It did help a bit. Actually the part that helped the most was the human contact from my sweet husband.  They do say human touch can do wonders for sick people and various health condition, right? I know I've read
