Cutex Advanced Nail Polish Remover Pads Review

Good afternoon all. It's a steamy one in New York. I am off today. I work the weekend, so I thought i'd do a quick review. I tried out the new Cutex Advanced Revival Nail Polish remover pads. They are absolutely amazing! I am so glad I was able to try them from Influenster (In this sample box) and Cutex. One little pad is soaked in nail polish remover that will take off both hands nail polish. No matter what color. I tried light and dark. They have a nice light scent. You can get pretty much at any drug store. Target. Etc. The best part yet is they keep your nail hydrated. It won't dry them out. Or make them chip. I will definitely be purchasing again. I give 5 coffee cups out of 5.

Have you guys ever purchased them? If so thoughts?

Intelligent Blends Kcups Review

Hello my coffee family! T.G.I.F. I hope you all missed me. Sorry for my absence, I started an amazing new job in the city. It has taken me a little while to settle into routine again since I was out of work about a year. I couldn't be happier. It is very challenging. Exciting. Fun. Best thing is I get to be independent. I hope you are all doing really good and enjoying your summer.

I have a new review for you that I had tried about a month ago. The nicest brand messaged me on Instagram to try out their coffee. Naturally I jumped at the offer to taste test coffee! Duh! The company is called Intelligent Blends. They sell all Organic K-cups at great prices. Everything is free shipping even their sampler packs! Bio-degradable K-cups. Best yet, the coffee is amazing! They offer dark roast, french roast, decaf, bold, medium, as well as some tea assortments. Cocoa and cider. The K-Cups I tried in the picture all are 5 coffee cups out of 5. Full bodied Arabica coffee blends that you can tell are fresh. Flavorful. As well as gourmet quality. I highly recommend buying these K-Cups. Their prices can not be beat. I have searched high and low for affordable K-Cups. This is by far the best place. $4.99 for a sampler pack (again free shipping). Then for a big pack 48 count, $22 even. Also if you place an order. They keep track of how much you spend. It's like a rewards program. It will say "you can earn 77 beans on this product". When you reach a certain amount of "beans" you can cash in for a free box. So cool! Another way you can save even more with auto-delivery. About 2.5%. Which would make a 48 count $21.45.
I just can't say anything bad about this brand. I felt very thankful they chose me to try their products. Click here to order. I also give the company's customer service and attention to detail and their clients 5 coffee cups out of 5. It was a pleasure dealing with them.

Have you guys ever shopped with this company? Seen them on Instagram? Let me know your thoughts. Enjoy your weekend all :)

Diy Flower Vases

Hello all. Happy belated Memorial day weekend. I hope you had a great one. It was very hot here in N.Y.C. Mine was good. My husband's birthday was the 28th so we went out to eat and celebrated. I am catching up on work today. The past few weeks have been so busy I barely had time to post. I did a few cute DIY's last week. I painted the bottom of my kitchen chairs and also I made little vases out of old perfume bottles that I wasn't using anymore. They were just too pretty not to use anymore. I used Philosophy and Marc Jacobs. I had them out to display and style my shelves with. I decided to kick it up a notch and turn them into mini vases. And by kick it up a notch, I meant take out the pliers from the tool box and go to town on your perfume bottles lol. It took a little elbow grease but after the top broke I put the flowers in and they looked so cute! An easy free way to turn what you already have in your home into a new item. No money needed. Well I hope you enjoyed my post and have a wonderful Tuesday. Stay cool in the sun.

Do you guys like to DIY? What is your favorite DIY project that you have done. I love to DIY. It's a great way to decorate on a budget or when you have no money. As well as to put your personal touch on your stuff.

Yankee Candle Sale

Good morning, and happy Sunday all. I hope you are all having a wonderful weekend. I am up as my husband sleeps in. He deserves it. He had to work all day yesterday. I am pretty exhausted myself. I was busy all yesterday and sore from switching up my workout. It's worth it though.

I wanted to share a great sale going on now with you guys. I am a total candle lover. I buy candles pretty much anywhere. I love Yankee Candle of course. But they can be pricey. When they have their sales you can make out really good and stock up for a while. They have a summer sale going on now. Select tarts are $1. Votives. $5 small jar candles. They also offer a flat rate of $5 shipping. Any order. $100 or more is free shipping. They still have a lot of scents in stock. I looked yesterday but hurry and order fast because their stuff goes really quick!

What are some of your favorite Yankee Candle scents? So many to pick. I would have to say my all time favorite is Storm watch. I love so many. Hard to remember all the names lol.

You can order online here. Let me know the great items you were able to get!

Also there is a sale on bathandbodyworks as well for $3 wallflowers! Not sure how long it will last but that's a steal. I actually need to order some more. If you have coupons you can combine and make out even better.

Have a great Sunday all.

Califia Farms Better Half Review

Good afternoon my coffee addicts! I hope you are having a positive day. I wanted to share a review on a new item I found recently. Califia "better half" almond/coconut milk. It's dairy, soy, gluten, and carageneen free. The unsweetened version has no added sugar. I thought it tasted really good for an almond milk version. I have struggled for months on whole30 without any avail at a good tasty almond milk.  This one has coconut so I feel it balances the almond flavor. And sweetens it a bit. Let's face it almond milk is pretty dead. Unless you are drinking one with sugar. This is a nice alternative.  It is $2.50 at your local whole foods. I think it's not bad. Real milk had become so damn expensive.  And it's unhealthy so I don't get it. This will go quick. That's the only con. I believe they sell a big bottle but I wasn't sure if I would like. Hence why I bought the small version.  I wish they sold it all over. Its not easily found. My other con. (Lile with most whole30 items). I would love to try the other versions they offer even if they have a smidgen of sugar. I am 98% whole30 5 months later. I will not go back to dairy or any bread. But for me a drop of sugar in a drop of almond milk is not bad. I've changed my whole lifestyle. I give the califia better half 4 coffee cups out of 5.

Have any of you tried almond milk? What are your favorite brands?
