Ladies, Don't Wear Cheap Leggings



Yesterday I was walking out of a store and a twenty something young lady walked by me, can someone say, labia majora.  That is all I could see, as she walked by me to the delight of the man waiting for his bus. Her leggings were so cheap, she might as well have worn black stockings, they looked about the same. Spend the money, don't wear cheap leggings.

Some of you might be wondering, "Aren't you a frugal blogger?" I am, I'm frugal but not cheap. When I buy my exercise clothes, I do tend to buy high end workout clothes especially pants. I find that well made or high end workout pants can last a few years. They also have the tendency to hold their color(s) after many washes. As my husband would say, "Cheap is expensive".

If you don't have the money to spend on more expensive leggings, save up and buy them when they go on sale. I always buy on sale. One of the companies I purchase pants from is BlueFish, which I am an affiliate vendor or San Diego Fit which has many brand names on their site like Margarita, INZA, Bia Brazil, Alo Yoga, and many more.

If you love leggings like I do, please spend some money on a good pair and don't purchase them at the drugstore or dollar store.  Because if you don't heed my warning, someone might end up ogling your nether regions.

        Paleo Treats Review

        Cacao Now!
        I love this company because their desserts are so delicious and they are made to satisfy the requirements of those on the Paleo diet program. Since I started the Paleolithic diet, I was wondering how I was going to quiet my sweet tooth; so I searched on the web and I found the Paleo Treats company.

        The Paleo Treats company is located in San Diego, California but if you don't live there, they ship to all the states in the USA and internationally. Their desserts are made out of natural ingredients without added sugar or wheat flour. My two favorites are the Brownie Bomb and Cacao Now and then followed by the Bandito.

        The Brownie Bomb is that, "The Bomb".  It is dark chocolate moist perfection. You wouldn't believe that a brownie that is made with honey, pecans, eggs, coconut oil, cacao powder, and almond flour would taste that good.

        Brownie Bomb
        Cacao Now reminds of the almond bar you might get from high-end candy stores. At first, I wasn't too happy about raisins in my dessert but thy grew on me really fast. I even think it might be my first choice with The Brownie Bomb coming in second.  The ingredients in Cacao Now are honey, cacao butter, almonds, raisins, cacao powder, pistachios, goji berries.

        The next runner up is The Bandito and it reminds me of a peanut butter cup. If like Reese's peanut butter cups then you will love The Bandito.  This wonderful chocolate delight is made up of almond flour, roasted almond butter, coconut oil, honey, cacao butter, flax meal, dried unsweetened coconut, cacao powder, vanilla extract, sea salt.

        They have two more products that don't have chocolate, they are The Mustang bar and The Mac Attack. They were only okay to me because I LOVE CHOCOLATE. However, it doesn't mean they aren't good, they just aren't MY favorites.

        The Price

        Some might find Paleo Treats too expensive, for 10 treats it cost $57 plus shipping. For me, it wasn't too bad because it has taken me more than 2 weeks to finish them off. Also, the treats are just for me and not anyone else, but if you are buying for more that one person, it can be costly.  With that said, if you want to try them and have the extra cash lying around, I say go ahead because nothing beats almost organic, GMO free and natural products that taste oh so good!
