Yes, this would be my new love! I love that I can wake up in the morning and make myself a cup of coffee, relax, and not have to worry about the coffee going “bad” before my hubby gets up 30 minutes later to go to work. I can just then make him his cup and it can be his specific blend that he likes. Me, I am more partial to the flavored coffees and cappachinos. My hubby loves vanilla and I love hazelnut, and of course coffee tastes better when it is flavored than just putting flavored creamer inside. We now can just put sugar and milk, saves some money on creamer!We also are fans of hot chocolate in this house. It used to be such a pain to have to get the water hot enough to put that packet into and hope that it did not turn out lumpy with the powder that did not dissolve. Biggest pet peeve of hot chocolate ever! We no longer have to worry about that. We just get the hot chocolate that we want in the k-cups and TA-DA! Keurig makes it at the perfect temperature and there are none of those lumps. Just creamy and oh-so-delicious hot chocolate.There is also a neat little extra that we got for the Keurig that allows us to use our own coffee grounds in the Keurig. I had no idea that this even existed. That’s where My K-cup comes in! You just simply remove the existed K-cup holder and put this handy little thing in it’s place. The only downside to this, no easy cleanup. You have to clean the filter between making the cups of coffee. Still you could have separate bags and make your own type. Still a convenience factor if you have different coffee drinkers in your home. I don’t think I will ever try every single one that I want in this brewer as it seems like there are hundreds of K-cups out there. If you have a chance to get a Keurig, no matter what the style, go for it! It will save your life in the morning because it is just so simple and easy. Add water, press the button, and your hot beverage is there in less than a minute.If you want to check out everything there is to offer from a Keurig, check them out!http://www.keurig.com/
I was given the chance to try out Children’s Advil Grape flavor from Smiley 360. They are an awesome site that allows you to sample products for your honest review. I loved that the Children’s Advil that they provided me with was flavored and that it was non-staining. My son is really fidgety when it comes to taking medicines and has been that way for a long time. He was always staining clothes with the red cherry flavored medicines that I would try to give him. When I poured this clear liquid that tasted like grape inside the little measuring cup, he actually took the medicine with no problem. He thought it was just a little “drink” as he put it.
It really did would the product says and lasted for a good eight hours. I did not have to worry about waking him up in the middle of the night to give him more fever reducer. He would take it in the morning and then also right before bedtime. There were no cons to this product and I feel like if I were to need to use it again, it would be reliable. There could not have come a better time of year for me to be able to try out this product, as my son normally doesn’t get sick with a fever any other time of the year. All he has is allergies during the Spring otherwise.
If you are looking to get some of this for your children this season, here is a link to where you can get coupons:
Here’s to our children feeling better….faster!
Disclosure: I was given the chance to try this product free from Smiley 360 in exchange for my honest opinion on the product.
I am not one that always likes to jump on the bandwagon when it seems like EVERYONE is reading the same thing. I did that when I was younger with Harry Potter and I saw where that got me…..I didn’t get passed book four. So, I decided to very deliberately wait until all the Twilight movies had been made to dig into the books. I feel like when I read a book first I am nothing but disappointed with how the movie turns out. Except for in the case of Nicholas Sparks. They always do a great job with his books to movies (which is why there are so many!)
Okay back to my point, I just finished the first Twilight book of the series, borrowed from a friend, and let me tell you I would have been utterly disgusted with the first Twilight movie if I would not have seen it first. It does not follow anything of what goes on inside this book. I don’t remember seeing the part where Jasper, Alice, and Bella are holed up in a hotel room in the movie…..also I don’t remember her ever trying to escape from them to get to the dance studio. This had me very upset. How much longer of production would that have really taken in order for them to have put those details into the movie?
So, now I will have to read the second one and see how the movie stacks up to the book. I will have to buy this one because the girl I borrowed from only had 1,3, and 4. Some meanie did not give her the second book back, so I lose out on that one. I am hoping that I can borrow it n my Kindle off of Amazon, but I am sure just because I want to that it won’t be allowed. I loved the book and just would have hoped that they would have stayed more true when it came to the movie. Does anyone else ever feel like they leave out good parts just to shorten production time? I am sure I will definitely feel this way when I get farther into the series because the books get longer as they go, but the movies are all pretty much the same length for the first three. Hmmmm..?
So pause for a second while I look up whether I can borrow this book or have to buy it!
So boo…..$6.99 on Kindle to own it. Oh well it is the small sacrifice I may have to make if I want to finish the series.
The way I look at it that’s all I spent to read the four books 🙂 Quite a steal! I know what I will be doing this afternoon……
I recently stumbled across Campus Book Rentals. I have always rented from other sources, and am sad that I didn’t know about them before I would be graduating from college this Spring. I will definitely keep them in mind if I were to go back to school for my Graduate degree. Their prices on books for rent are unreal, and a great perk that a lot of other rental companies do not offer is that you can actually highlight the text in your books that you rent. Other companies tend to from upon this. I would have loved to have marked these books with important passages that I was paying good money to rent in the first place. Instead I had to make post its and notes.You can even save even more money when you refer a friend to Campus Book Rentals. The more people that you refer the more money that you cash in on.
Do even better because with every text book rental, Campus Book Rentals will donate to Operation Smile. I do not know if all of you know what Operation Smile is, but let me give you the low down. They perform life changing surgeries on children with cleft lip whose families would have never been able to afford to do so. Campus Book Rentals is glad to support this organization and make a difference in these children’s lives.
Rent Back is another great program that Campus Book Rentals has to offer. It allows you to sell your books back and rent them to students for about 2-4 times as much as you would get back if you were just to sell them back to your school bookstore. How awesome is that?! Every time your book gets rented to a student….you get paid. So sell your old books back to Campus Book Rentals, let them rent it out for you, and then you cash in.

So yes, I am being brave by posting these pictures online. My forehead is not quite the issue. It is my cheeks and chin area. I have been lucky not to experience really bad acne around my hair line, which is great, but still….going out with the scars and these bumps makes me feel like I want to hide.
These pictures are with no makeup on and out there for everyone of you to see.
These are the three products that I just ordered from Proactiv. I have only used them now for two days, and that is when these pictures were taken. We will see if they actually work. I am going to do a weekly update on my progress on my face. I would love for something to actually take these embarassing marks away because nothing out there I have found so far has done that.
My next challenge is Biotin. Does it really work to help keep hair and nails strong?
For some reason this winter I have been having problems with losing hair while in the shower. I am not sure why and I think it definitely has something to do with my roots and the strength of my hair. My nails also lack luster and are brittle. I am deciding to see if taking Biotin will help out with these beauty issues. I will not start this trial run until next week. I don’t want to take on too much at once.
