Todd & Erin’s Shop Locally Guide – bean bliss All-natural Skin Care

Todd & Erin’s Shop Locally Guide – bean bliss All-natural Skin Care. I must admit I have a terrible weakness for skin care products that smell good enough to eat … and frankly, some of the bean bliss goodies smell so glorious that my eight-year-old Zoe buried her nose in my neck.

“What IS that?” Zoe said, taking another sniff.

As I fended her off, I looked at the lid of my body balm. “Uh, it’s Candy Cane.” The kid was seconds away from nibbling my neck, so I pacified her with a Vanilla Bean lip balm.

But it all feels and smells so good! Taneasha came up with with the oh, so tasty concept behind bean bliss because she needed something she couldn’t find in the store. “I have very sensitive skin and because of that, I have been using natural skin care products for much of my life.” But she added, “Unfortunately, most of them are either unscented, or they smell like lavender or herbs. Honestly, I don’t love that. I wanted something that was all-natural, but smelled incredible! That is how bean bliss all-natural skin care was born.” Taneasha infuses her products with real vanilla beans, and because bean bliss is meant for sensitive skin, everything is made with all-natural ingredients. (Erin here: at this point in the season, I have feet that more closely resemble hooves, but the Candy Cane body balm made my skin feel amazing.)


Where do I order this yummy stuff?

You can order all the lovely bean bliss all-natural skin care goodies online at, or pick some up at Fallen Angel Tattoo (City Weekly’s Best of Utah 2018!) located at 1530 South State Street in SLC. With the promo code Erin at checkout, you can choose whichever scent of lip balm you want for free. With any order, just add an extra lip balm, put in the code at checkout, and $5 will be deducted from the total. There’s a 100% satisfaction guarantee, and free shipping on any order over $50.


Are there variety packs with lots of things to sample?

There’s some wonderful variety packs for sampling, like the lip balm variety pack, with Pumpkin Spice Latte, Black Licorice, Sugar Plum and Candy Cane. The pack is currently on sale for 25% off – only $15! I’m a fan of the Bliss Bag -any scent you pick comes with the foaming hand wash, body balm and lip balm for only $25 – it’s on sale from $30.



Heavenly foaming soaps…

Why did no one tell me that the most vile, grimy child will happily wash their hands when there’s epic foaming soap involved? And bean bliss has such lovely scents: Vanilla Bean, Black Licorice, Pumpkin Spice Latte, Sugar Plum and Candy Cane – and they’re all only $10.


Take care of your tattoo!

Anyone with new ink knows how important tattoo care is, which is why bean bliss all-natural skin care offers a tattoo care kit for only $28 – that’s on sale, down from $32.


bean bliss All-natural Skin Care: show me the love…

bean bliss is beloved (say that three times fast!) and there’s plenty of five-star reviews to prove it. Everything comes to you all packaged in a pretty little bag with a ribbon, so you can send it directly to the fortunate recipient. Ready to take a look? When you order, just add Erin as your discount code and Taneasha will add in a free lip balm! There’s a 100% satisfaction guarantee, and free shipping on any order over $50.

Todd & Erin’s Shop Locally Holiday Guide – Rogliano’s Italian Dressing

(Image credit: williamlind)

The Todd & Erin “Shop Locally” Holiday Guide – Rogliano’s Italian Dressing.

I have a 6’6 mountain of a brother that’s a hard-core carnivore. He was “Keto-friendly” before there was such a thing. So I buy him a case of Rogliano’s Italian Dressing every year for his Christmas gift. Aside from being ridiculously tasty, this stuff acts as a marinade … part of your crockpot meal … ribs … pasta salads … pork … sandwiches … shrimp … it even makes a perfect gourmet grilled cheese sandwich and panini when you baste dressing on your bread instead of butter.

Would you like a free bottle of Rogliano’s?

Just send us one of your recipes that’s made better with a little Rogliano’s added and we’ll send you a bottle! You can add it in the comments below or send it to:


But here’s why I love Rogliano’s: Jeff and Veronica.

They’re the owners of this lovely, tasty business and they’re at every local fundraiser, every community event, and they epitomize “shopping local.” Rogliano’s is carried in select local grocery stores, from Harmons, Macey’s, Lee’s, Fresh Market and Dick’s Market.  You can find all the locations that carry them here. If you don’t want to have to actually leave the house, you can order them online as well at Rogliano’ There are all kinds of lovely recipes online as well, just in case you have “chef fatigue” and you can’t think of one more thing to cook. Jeff describes their tasty dressing like this:

“The recipe for Rogliano’s Italian dressing has been a family tradition since 1922. The authentic Italian taste comes straight from the old country and is not only a delicious salad dressing, but makes a great dipping sauce, seasoning or marinade that is superb for grilling.”


They’ve dressed up their bottles for the holidays, so it tucks nicely into a Christmas stocking, a gift basket (or in my gigantic brother’s case, a side of beef and a case of Rogliano’s) and part of anything that needs extra tastiness. Here’s a store locator to find your Rogliano’s fix closest to you. You can also find them on Facebook, Instagram, and Pinterest.

Want to pick up a bottle in person?

Jeff and Veronica are all over the map this holiday season:

Holy Cow Christmas Boutique – Nov  20-23  – Lindon Community Center – Utah county
Simple Treasures Weber Holiday Boutique – Golden Spike Events Center – Ogden
Daybreak – Winter Market & Santa’s Arrival – Daybreak Community Center – Daybreak
It’s a Wonderful Life Festival – Dec 13-14th  Deseret Peak Complex – Grantsville (Tooele)

And, their Black Friday for case delivery for holiday gifts. It works like this…

Free delivery for our dressing famiglia! Just $3 a bottle for 12 or more bottles of either flavor. Use coupon code “famiglia” at checkout on Perfect for family, friends, co-workers and even you. Offer only good through 12/1 in Salt Lake, Utah, Weber, Davis, Box Elder, Cache, Wasatch and Summit counties. Will be delivered after 12/1. #roglianos #UtahsOwn #SmallBusinessSaturday #BlackFriday #CyberMonday

Support local businesses this holiday!

Supporting Rogliano’s by throwing a boatload of bottles in your shopping cart is one of the best ways to show love a local business. The folks at Rogliano’s are here for the community at charities … holiday events … Erin’s Night Out … Look! Even Kevin (Hercules) Sorbo loves them. And so do I.

Everybody loves Rogliano’s. Even Governor and Mrs. Herbert know a local treasure when they see one.


Become A Vintage Valentine’s Day Princess For As Low As $6

Become A Vintage Valentine’s Day Princess For As Low As $6. There’s just something about 1950’s style dresses that makes everyone look gorgeous- it’s the only kind of style I can wear that actually gives me a waist. (I have what is charitably called a “swimmer’s build,” meaning you couldn’t even sculpt a waist on me with a kitchen knife.) And this is the time of year we all want to be a little glamorous, romantic, possibly even sexy.


There’s flattering lingerie now for any body type, along with pretty, romantic plus-size dresses. Some of the dress styles I have here are as low as $6.00- but the catch is you need to order now to get them in time for Valentine’s Day festivities. Otherwise, the cost in shipping makes them expensive again. Have a look here for some other ideas and styles.


There’s also super-cheap petticoats for underneath to give you a nice, swingy skirt. Have a look...  (Editor’s note: if you’re searching for any decor items you’ve seen on our show or in craft videos, you’ll find all the materials – or even already made – here.)


Become A Vintage Valentine’s Day Princess For As Low As $6. Here’s some of my favorite looks- you can find all kinds of styles and even costume jewelry in our store here.

Remember! Order early! Like, NOW!
