GF&AF Expo

So this past month I had the privilege to go as a blogger to the Gluten Free and Allergen Free Expo! It is defiantly one of my favorite weekends of the year!

One of my favorite booths was the Schar kids area! They had story time,gluten free play dough,and crafts for the kids. This expo is so family friendly,,which is a huge bonus!

What I love most of all is when you are waiting in line and see the children's faces when they are told that all the food in this place is safe. Young kids with allergies or celiac are taught that in most places the food won't be safe.

I even got to meet some of my readers!

Over all had an amazing time! That weekend marked my last free weekend before I started my competition/game season! (Might be currently writing this on my way to my first full show!)

Gluten Free Makeup-Red Apple Lipstick

Ahh,I miss the days when I could go to the Mac counter a buy the newest gem to add to my collection of lip products. I always loved lip gloss,lipstick,lip balm,and anything related makeup wise to your lips.

As a kindergartner my favorite thing to carry around was my lip smackers. I had the gloss, jelly,and balm in all colors and flavors.

When I went gluten free,the day after I went to the library and got a book on celiac. One the first page was a pictures of thing that have hidden gluten. One of those you guessed it.....lipstick! So not only did I learn I had to give up my beloved Chinese food but my lipstick too.

So as time went on,and my lip product  collection at an all time low,I found Red Apple Lipstick company!

Last year at the Gluten Free & Allergen Free Expo in NJ I got to experience there amazing products. Although they have lipstick in their name they offer so much more! Their products range from lipstick to now mascara! My favorite product from them is the Mint 2 Be lipgloss. It's not sticky or gooey. It has just the right amount of color and an amazing minty smell and taste! I own this lipgloss in Fuzzy Navle(a peachy color) but they have other fun colors to match your taste. 

I can't wait for this week end to visit one of my favorite tables at the GF&AF Expo... The Red Apple Lipstick Booth!
