My name is Sara and I am the voice at Crooked Creek Life. If you choose to follow our journey, well you’ll probably get whatever pops into my head or if something interesting comes across my desk. I focus on our family, farm & homeschool.
My kids love these little fruit snacks!! We throw them in with picnics and at snack time too. They are a bit on the chewy side but they love the flavors and I like how they don’t have a bunch of unhealthy ingredients!
This week I tested Earthen InstantPeel. I give it 3 stars. I could feel a small difference where I used it (my super dry feet) but it just didn’t work as well as I’d hoped. The liquid is super thin and, since you apply it and scrub while in the shower, it mostly ran right off. Maybe if it were thicker like a paste it would have a chance to work better. I received a free sample from Earthen to review.
Best thing: I LOVE the smell of this shampoo!!!! It cleans well but I only use it if I’m going to wear my hair curly. It has something in it to make hair want to curl so I use something different if I want to wear my hair straight.

Johnsonville Beer Brats are our favorite for grilling on a hot summer day! We love the flavor and the consistency of the meat. Other sausages can have hard bits of gristle but not Johnsonville! I would recommend these for sure!!
This is a nice little candle. I enjoy it to get us in the mood for fall! It has a warm, sweet scent but it’s not too overwhelming! It is a bit pricey for the size. I would recommend it if you don’t mind paying a little more for a candle.
When I first tried this I counted it as a 4-star mascara, but I’ve since deducted another 2 stars. It’s an “okay” mascara – no clumps, goes on nice, but it doesn’t have any wow factor. It certainly cannot compare to my usual mascara. There is not much to impress – it doesn’t add any curl or much length to speak of. I just don’t care for it after a few hours because it ends up on my face so I have a smokey eye without wanting one. By the end of the day its all over my cheeks. The wand is flimsy and bends with the smallest amount of pressure. This will be one for the “use only in an emergency” pile.
We use TurboTax every year! It makes our personal and business/farm taxes so much easier than doing it ourselves. TurboTax is also much more affordable than paying a professional to prepare our returns.
This is my absolute favorite eyeliner!! It smudges nicely for a subtle smokey eye. I really love the soft brown color for everyday wear and I like that I can darken it up with a black liner for a more glamorous look.
I had nearly given up on finding a nice glitter polish I can apply without using sponges (great technique but a little messy and time consuming). Prism (1026) is PERFECT!! I get full coverage glitter in two thin coats!! It has a slight purplish tint and has both micro and standard size glitter.
