Advil Allergy & Congestion Relief -- Smiley360 Connect
Great for allergy sufferers. If you get sinus pressure headaches and have allergy symptoms try out Advil. :) It will help. I suffer from allergies spring/summer seasons. I get bad migraines with them as well. I took this one day and it did relieve the pressure.

Happy Saturday lovers. How has your week been? I hope good. Well if you are like me and you hate the Iphone at this point and the followers that shell out hundreds of dollars every month for essentially the same type of phone, then I have a great new one for you.
I was very lucky to be chosen to try the new Blackberry Z10 phone from Crowdtap & Verizon. I can't say enough about this phone. I love it. It has a nice screen that is not really huge ( like the Samsung Galaxy models) or too small like some cheaper Android models. It is right in the middle. It is pretty user friendly. I didn't even read the guide before using. You take nice pictures. You can make videos. You can video chat or take pictures either front or back which is very cool. It is fast. No lagging or freezing in the screen. The biggest seller of them all is that the Blackberry has a great battery life. I gave it to my husband as an early birthday present and he has been using it every day and loves it. All of his co-workers were converts as well.
The price at the moment is kind of high I think the phone goes for about $500. But with a contract at Verizon might be less.
So try the phone out. Take a look do some research it is great :)

Finally the weather is warming up. I can feel my spirits lifting ! Now to a change in our daily coffee drinking. Iced. Here are 11 great summer ready coffee drinks from delish.com. Yumm. Let me know if you guys have tried any of these drinks. I love to do an iced coffee in the summer. But I will still drink hot coffee if it's not humid out in the morning on my porch. Before the sun has set. There is still a breeze from the tree I can feel. Everything is just right :)

Hi guys!! I have been away on vacation this past week with my husband. Today was our first day back at work. The bad part was going back to work. The good part is it's only a three day week so we will be off again on Monday. It was so nice to spend quality time with my husband. We did a million things in one week. Saw family. Went shopping. Purchased some new well deserved ( and needed ) furniture. I even did an hour Zumba Core workout today. Which may I just add was so intense. It said I burned 600 calories. It was fun. I just love it! I use it on my Wii machine. Anywhoo enough about me. How was your week without me ???
It is Friday so you know what that means. The Friday Run Down!! Here goes...

Earlier I had did a thorough post on the Espro Press and all it's great qualities and where to purchase. Everything you needed to know about what the Espro Press is. They were nice enough to send me the small version of the Espro Press and I just love it. It eliminates the need of using a french press but has the same type of idea in mind. Just a highly updated and technologically advanced version. The Espro Press has two filters to make sure that there are no ground bits in your coffee. It keeps the coffee warm in the double insulated stainless steel wall. A minimum of two hours. ( I tested this I think mine was for about an hour. Give or take). It's beautiful. Let's you use whatever coffee you like. And it gives you the option to really customize your own brew. I like to keep it and use it for when I run out of K-Cups. Or when I have a special blend to taste and review. I don't want to use an old drop coffee maker. Yuck. Espro Press is the new wave of the future and if you are a coffee lover I would recommend buying. You can purchase in a small, medium, or large size. I have the small which is great for one or two people the most. Order here if interested.
Good afternoon. It is finally a warm sunny day here in N.Y.C. I have so many reviews and posts to catch up on since I have been so busy working. But I have a great review for you today. It is Maxwell House's House blend kcup. Now I will be honest since we are all such good friends. I really did not expect Maxwell House K-Cups to be good. Their regular ground coffee in the can is mediocre at best. So I was expecting the K-Cup to be watered down or taste weird. But I was wrong. Which I am so many times in life ;) The coffee was a very nice medium blend. It tastes strong in the sense that there is no watering down of this K-Cup. The coffee is fresh. 100% Arabica. No after taste. No gritty taste. No flavor. Just plain old good drink till the last drop coffee.
I had one cup yesterday and was so excited to have another today. I even told my mom about them. What made me even more happy was that my local Key Food grocery store had them in stock. A few years back when I first got my Keurig, I could only find K-Cups at Bed Bath and Beyond or my local Kmart actually. But then little by little ( I guess since Keurig is so damn popular and it's literally taking over the world) my grocery store starting adding a whole line. When I went in the other day I saw Gevalia and Maxwell House. My husband being the sweetheart that he is, saw my emotion and right away dropped them in our cart and got them for me:) ( love you babe). And the rest is history.
I really would urge you to try the Maxwell House House blend. Even if you didn't like their coffee in the tub or can, I think this will convert you to the brand. This is the same thing that happened to me with the Folger's K-Cups. I always hated Folgers regular coffee. But the gourmet line and the K-Cups I LOVE. So I'd give it 4 coffee cups out of 5. The box sells for $7.99 for only 12. That's the only downside. But once in a while I will pick one up at the grocery store on impulse. Usually I buy on Bed Bath and Beyond because they have coupons and free shipping.
Has anyone ever tried these yet ? Do you agree with me or think they stink ???
