Review | NutriBullet

So those that follow me on Twitter, Instagram, Facebook and so on, then you already know of the luck that I've had with blenders.  I had the basic blender but it crapped out one.  I decided to invest into something more heavy duty and got he Ninja.  I must say that thing was amazing. I absolutely loved it.  However I am not pleased with the customer service that I had received regarding my warranty.

So anyway, after seeing several videos on YouTube about the NutriBullet, I opted for this one.  I. AM. IN. LOVE!  This thing is amazing and does everything that I expected.  It is also is the perfect size since it is just my son and I.  
Here is the base and main part of it.  It's very sleek and takes up no space at all.  I really like that because I'm sure if it was put up then I'd most like forget about it.  This way I can put it on my counter and seeing that it's there, it will get regular use out of it. It's not heavy at all either and yet has just enough weight so that it doesn't move all over the place when it's in use.

  1. It came with three cups, 1 short cup and 1 handled comfort lip ring. This self-blending Short Cup is perfect for making single servings. Make and drink right in the same cup! It even comes with a handled Comfort Lip Ring to make drinks easier to hold. 
  2. The extra tall cup is the main cup used for larger portions. This is the main cup that I use for my daily smoothies and shakes.
You will also receive two storage lids.  No need to let your drinks go to waist and spoil because it was not properly sealed.  Make your drink, put a lid on it and take it with you.
  1. The extractor blade is not sharp to the touch but can do some damage to food.  It breaks through seeds, stems, and even apple skins.  It's very easy to clean.  After use, just run it under hot water so that it will not stick till able to properly wash.
  2. The milling blade is my favorite.  It will grind grains, fresh herbs and chopped nuts. I also love that it mills rice so that I can make rice flower for certain dishes.
Lastly it comes with 1 user guide and recipe book and also 1 pocket nutritionist. The user guide and recipe book is full of awesome recipes that I will be trying out, one by one.  I love the fact that it has a Six-Week Transformation Plan.
The Pocket Nutritionist is very helpful for it teaches:
  • Which foods should be organic
  • How to choose a well rounded menu
  • How to select the freshes produce
  • Exactly how much produce to purchase (to prevent spoilage)
  • The health benefits with the foods you choose
  • And plenty more!
Well these are my thoughts on this product.  I absolutely love it and have yet to have any problems with it and I would definitely recommend it to others.

If you have any questions reguarding this product, please feel free to leave a comment and if I am able to answer it then I definitely will.

Beauty Blogger Tag

To end the week off, I thought I'd do a fun post!  I'm sure you guys have seen this tag, or a version of this tag floating around the beauty community.  I've done quite a few tags in the past, but I never got around to this one!  If you've done this one, leave me the link below. I'd love to read it!  If you haven't, feel free to consider yourself "tagged" and tweet me your link when you finish it.  Let's get to the questions!

1. Is your hair naturally curly or straight?
My hair is super curly. Its honestly a lot of work to straighten my hair, and make it last.

2. Do you dye it yourself or go to a salon?
I do it myself.  My natural color is actually auburn (red).  Not too many people believe me since I'm always dying it.

3. Do you wear the same style every day, or do you change it?
I wear it the same a lot, but I like to change it up sometimes.  I pin it back, curl it, braid it; just whatever I'm feeling for that day.

4. Do you do your own mani/pedi or go to a salon?
I do my own for the most part.  I love painting my own nails (even though not very good at it), and I can't stand when people touch my feet. Plus it's a lot cheaper to do it at home!

5. How often do you change your nail polish?
Not often enough.  I normally would like to change it every 2-3 days, depending on if its chipping or not.

6. Do you polish your toes in the winter or just the summer?
I polish them in the winter, and in the summer, but I usually leave it on for a super long time. During the summer I'll change it up every few days.

7. How long does it take for you to put on makeup?
If I do a simple makeup look, it usually only takes about 10 minutes. It increases from there depending on what products I use (full face or a little less) and how much makeup I want to wear.

8. What do you do first?  Face or eyes?
I like to do my eyes first for the most part.  That way if I get fallout from the shadow, all I have to do is wipe it with a face wipe.  If I do foundation first with fallout then I would end up removing my foundation, and well, it's just a mess lol

9. Do you collect makeup or just buy what you need when you need it?
I collect makeup. I always browse the aisles when I'm in the store.  My collection is not much larger than most girls, but I love it!

10. How often do you wear false eyelashes?
I've only worn them a handful of times in my life, and those were mostly for looks I done to post on my blog.

11. Do you do a full face of makeup every day?
Definitely not.  As much as I love makeup, that's a lot of work, plus it's not good for your skin to keep it covered every day.  I'll do a full face 2 or 3 times a week depending on where I'm going.  If I'm just running to the store, I'll wear little to no makeup. If I'm going out of town or having a date night I'll do a full face.

12. Do you wear makeup when you're home alone or with family?
Sometimes I do.  I try to let my skin breathe as much as possible. The only time I wear makeup at home is if I've had it on from earlier that day and haven't taken it off yet.

13. Will you leave the house without makeup?
Yes.  I've done it multiple times.  It took me a long time to be comfortable enough to leave my house without makeup though.

14. How many high-end products do you have?
I have quite a few high end products.  I definitely wouldn't want to go through my collection and count them. I have more drugstore products though!

15. Do you plan your OOTD every night or decide when you're getting dressed?
I always decide when I'm getting dressed. I've tried to choose my outfit the night before, and I ended up changing it again anyway.

16. How often do you change your handbag?
Every few months.  I love handbags! It really just depends on what I'm wearing and where I am going.

17. What time do you wake up and go to sleep?
I almost always go to sleep after midnight, and when I wake up depends on what I have to do that day.  If I sleep in though I'll usually get up around 11:00.

18. How often or when do you workout?
I used to work out a 5 times a week, but I've kinda slacked on that haha.  I need to get back in it though.  I felt so much better when I worked out and ate super healthy!

19. Left handed or right handed?
Right handed for some stuff,  but started out a lefty.  I had an accident that caused me to be without use of my left hand for quite some time.  So I adapted to using my right hand.

20. How tall are you?
5'3 3/4" to be exact but I just say 5'4

21. Do you speak any foreign languages?
Besides from English, I do speak German.  I understand it more though.

22. How many pets do you have?
Just one, a crazy cat named Lola

23. How often are you on Blogger/Wordpress?
I'm on Blogger every single day. I love to read blogs and most of the ones I enjoy reading are using Blogger platform.  It's one of the first things I do in the morning.

24. Do you read comments posted on blogs?
I read them on my blog and other blogs.  I love seeing what people, other than the person who wrote the blog post, are saying about the product(s) or article.

25. Do you keep a list of products to try as you see other posts?
I have a large list of products I want to try stored in my phone.  They are listed by brand.

26. How did you come up with your blog name?
I've had other blog names before but decided on this one because it's not about a name but the person.  My blog represents all of me, from motherhood, eating healthy, beauty, lifestyle and so much more.

27. What kind of camera do you use for your photographs?
I used to use my iPhone but now I use either my Samsung Smart Camera WB800F or my Nikon COOLPIX P510.  I would really like to get the Nikon D3200 or Canon T3i.

28. How often do you clean your house?
I clean my apartment a little every day, but I usually do a huge deep clean once a week.  I don't like filth or clutter.

29. What's your favorite color?
Teal and Pink!

30. What is your favorite drugstore/high end makeup brand?
I really love Covergirl from the drugstore. I use everything from foundation to mascara to lip products from them.  For my high end brand, I'm really loving MAC, and Urban Decay right now!

31. What are you doing with the rest of your day?
I'm actually going to finish watching the remake of the movie Flowers in the Attic, and get some blog posts done and schedule them to post.

Unforgettable MOMENTS | Grape Gray

So I decided to finally paint my nails. I just wasn't really sure on what color to do them. I went through my drawer and found this color. If I remember correctly, I got his at Payless. I honestly don't think that they sell cosmetics anymore because the last time I was there, didn't see any. Who knows, it might just be here that they stopped selling them at.
Well here are a few pictures that I took. Not the greatest pictures though. So for that I apologize. Also, I am well aware that I'm dire need of a mani, so please, no judgement
