Lemon-Limeade with Herbs ...

One of the recipes I shared for the The Ultimate Guide to Hosting a Dinner Party article on Wayfair's Emagazine this month was this amazing Lemon-Limeade with herbs.
With fresh herbs and citrus, you really can't go wrong!
It was served perfectly from these Moroccan Silver Glasses from Wayfair.

Allysian Sciences ...

I had such a great time hosting an event last week introducing Allysian Sciences to Bloggers, and Social Media Influencers!
Allysian Sciences is a brand new supplement company that was co-founded by Rod Jao, and 8 time Olympic Medalist (and, Dancing with the Stars Champion) Apolo Ohno

We had Kitchen Eighty-Eight cater the food for the night, and it was all so amazing!
They served Tri-Tip Tacos, Summer Squash flat bread, and Green Apple Salad with Manchego Cheese.  And a for dessert, a Fresh Berry and Vanilla Mousse, and a Chocolate Hazelnut Cheesecake.
Orson Gygi set us up with one sweet candy table.
We were so lucky to have several of our favorite companies donate some awesome items for the amazing giveaways throughout the night!
Yosi Samra hooked us up with one of their beautiful leather tote bags, sandals, and slip-on foldable flats.
Tai Pan Trading gave us an adorable handbag/backpack filled with all sorts of goodies, like jewelry, a phone case, sunglasses, a scarf, and a cute topiary.
Our friends at Brickyard Buffalo gave us the bag of all floral bags filled with clothing, accessories, sunglasses and more.
We gave away two gift certificates to one of my cooking classes at Orson Gygi!
OC Tanner donated some amazing high-priced pieces like this TW Steel TW300 Watch ($475), a Cartier Wallet ($325), A Roberto Coin Vacation Tote ($75), a David Yurman Jewelry Tray ($100), and a Kallati leather diary ($65)
Flor de Luz Shop gave away one of their darling Huipil clutches
My favorite workout and swimsuit company, Albion Fit gave away over $200 in workout clothing for a lucky blogger!  
There were some really great things given away that night!  I wish I could have won them all!
All of our attendees went home with a swag bag, including:
Mastermind: Allysian Sciences forerunner in their supplement line.  It is made of 19 of the earth's most effective brain boosting nutrients, and has been developed with leading scientific and medical professionals with the ingredients being backed by over 400 scientific studies.
It increases motivation, and mental endurance, increases ability to retain information, improve focus, and concentration, mood, social ease, it heightens clarity and awareness, and enhances overall intelligence. I've been using Mastermind the past four months.  And, it really is amazing.  I love love love it!  We gave a sample bottle to each of our attendees to try, and I am already getting such amazing feedback from our bloggers on how much they love it, and how it really works and they feel much more focused and clear!  It is so amazing!
Sinless Chocolates: Functional Dark Chocolate laced with Mastermind.
A Disney Music CD
An Allysian Sciences Cosmetics Bag
Cents of Style was so nice to give all of our attendees their stone dangle earrings!
And, Orson Gygi gave each of our attendees my very favorite little brownie spatula!
I was so happy with the turn out, and loved seeing so many of my friends, old and new!
Ryan Longwell, long time NFL Player, came and talked to us about Mastermind and the quality and research that went into making the product.
The fun thing about being asked by a company to throw a blogger party is, as a blogger I know what bloggers like.  So, a photobooth is a must! Wink!
I hired Salty Booth to come take photos of our guests for the night.  Here's a few of the fun photos for the night.  
We "Re-defined Ourselves" in the Allysian Sciences photo booth, and received #ElevatedIntelligence!!
So many exciting things are in the works with Allysian Sciences being in their pre-launch stage.

Their products are far superior than any other vitamins or supplements I have tried.  And, as someone who is very aware and picky about what I put into my body, I spent the time researching and consulting with a doctor before deciding to give it a try.  

After four months of using Mastermind, I can honestly say that it has changed my life for the better.  My "mom brain," or "brain fog" as you may call it is gone. I can think clearer, retain information better, and I have so much more focus and drive.  It is an all natural, non-stimulant with non-GMO organic ingredients.  I have always been a firm believer in taking vitamins and supplements regularly.  I have always felt better when I take them versus when I don't.  And, Mastermind has taken that to a whole new level!  I really can't believe how much I have been able to take on as a blogger, a wife, a mother.  It has given me the focus to stay on task, and get my work done instead of wanting to stay in bed and watch Netflix all day. Wink!  

I also have loved their Essential Multi-Vitamins especially formulated for women.  They not only have essential vitamins and minerals, but also key vegetables and fruits.  As much as I like to think I eat healthy and am getting all my vitamins, I do believe that the soils and earth are not producing as many vitamin and mineral rich foods as they used to as we use so many harsh chemicals in our food productions these days. I don't think that a carrot has the same amount of nutrients, and vitamins and minerals as it did 50 years ago, so supplementing my diet with vitamins and minerals has made a huge difference in how I feel!

Their Genesis Greens Powder is also a favorite of mine.  It combines greens and berry powder filled with antioxidants and anti-inflammatory support.  I love to put this in my morning smoothie!

And, as a little perk to my readers, I would love to offer the first FIVE people who are interested a FREE 5 day bottle of Mastermind (a $25 value) to give it a try for yourself!  I honestly felt results on day one!  If you are someone who feels like they could benefit from a supplement like this, I would love to send you more information!  It really will change your life! Just shoot me an email: carolinearmelle@gmail.com!
