Change The Game In The New Year With NutriBullet Pro 900 And Super Foods


Most of you are familiar with NutriBullet, but the new NutriBullet PRO 900 will blow you away!  There are 900 crushing watts of power to blend and pulverize anything you can throw at it.  Nuts, seeds, whole fruit, even wheat grass…nothing will stop the NutriBullet form performing at it’s very best.



The NutriBullet Pro 900 has a beautiful, sleek look that will fit well into any kitchen.  The stainless steel is easy to keep clean so no matter how much you use your NutriBullet, it will stay looking as good as the day that you got it.


You learn something new every day, and when I learned that NutriBullet also made Super Food powders to add to your drinks I knew I HAD to try them out as well.  The Super Foods are a great way to boost the flavor and nutrition in your smoothie with one simple scoop.

If you’re having a hard time thinking of smoothies to make, NutriBullet has the solution for you.  They have tons of recipes and I decided to try a few before trying out my own creations.


First thing I tried was the Berry Protein Smoothie with the Super Food Protein Blend.  It TOTALLY ROCKED!  The flavor was perfect and the protein boost was a great way to help kick the cold I had.


I decided to be a little adventurous and try the Blueberry Breakfast Smoothie with the Cleansing Greens powder.  Well, the Cleansing Greens powder is not my thing…I didn’t like it and was about to dump it down the drain when my 10 year old son asked to try it.  He drank the whole thing and asked if there was any more, so I guess it all depends on each person’s individual taste.  I re-made the smoothie without the cleansing greens and it was phenomenal.


The Cookie Butter Blast was by far my favorite smoothie that I made.  In place of the cocao nibs called for in the recipe, I used the Super Boost powder and it tasted delicious.  This recipe has been made time and time again because myself and my children just can’t get enough.


The Strawberry Oatmeal Smoothie is another crowd pleaser.  When I make it for myself I put in a tablespoon of the Beauty Boost….YUM!


Last, but most certainly NOT least, the Strawberry Orange Dream Smoothie.  I like to make this smoothie every other day with the Healthy Gut Super Foods.  I suffer from Chron’s disease and the Healthy Gut has helped alleviate some of my more painful, and uncomfortable symptoms.

If you don’t have a NutriBullet in your home…what the heck are you waiting for?  There’s no better way to say I love you than the gift of nutrient extraction.  Give the gift of health this year with the NutriBullet Pro 900.

Decoplate Review


If you’re tired of traditional dinnerware, then welcome to Decoplate.  Decoplate is the no-brainer alternative to boring, lackluster dinnerware.  You can choose a standard design or customize your own and have something that is truly unique to who you are.


Since my wedding anniversary is coming up, I thought making a plate to commemorate our wedding date was the perfect idea.  The process was really simple and I had my custom plate designed within a few minutes without any hangups.  The finished plate arrived incredibly quickly, and I was surprised at the vibrant colors and crisp lines when I opened the box.

Decoplate is the ONLY company in the WORLD offering dishwasher, microwave, and oven safe decorated plastic dinnerware that is also free of formaldehyde, BPAs and DEHPs AND is FDA and NSF approved for food contact.


Although the Decoplate is intended for daily use, I just thought it was to pretty to take a chance with.  I have 3 kids that somehow break the unbreakable and do it well.  I have my Decoplate sitting proudly displayed in my display case in the living room and I have to say it looks good in there.  On our anniversary my husband and I will use our special plate for cheese and crackers while we enjoy a nice glass of wine.

Give The Gift Of Play With RoloRat


FroliCat, if you don’t know who they are, makes interactive toys for your cat to help keep them entertained and active.  No matter how your furbaby likes to play, there’s a toy for the.  From lasers to mice, they’ve got you covered.


I have 3 cats of my own, and foster kitties coming and going all the time so toys in this house are a must.  When offered to opportunity to review the RoloRat from FroliCat, I knew I couldn’t say no.


Katie Bug is my little sweetheart that loves to get into mischief.  She’s the newest addition to the family after she came to us as a foster and we just couldn’t let her go.  I knew she would love the RoloRat, but I had no idea that it would keep her entertained for hours upon hours to the extent that I would need to change the batteries within 2 days.


Delilah was a little freaked out by the RoloRat at first, but she quickly grew to love it.  She likes to have a tall vantage point to spy on it and pounce from above and then run like the wind.


THIS was a huge surprise for me.  Cheese is my old granny cat.  She’s 10 years old and hasn’t been feeling herself lately.  It’s been a long time since she showed interest in toys, but the RoloRat definitely got her attention.  I was giggling and laughing watching her act like a kitten again, and that to me is priceless.


But, even MORE surprising the my fat Cheesey mama playing again was the RoloRat being of interest to our foster pup Venus.  She really doesn’t know what to make of the little rolling thing with glowing red eyes, but she follows it all around the house pawing at it and twisting her head from side to side when it makes little squeaky noises.  Too cute!

I can guarantee you, no matter what age your cat is, they will enjoy the RoloRat.  Make sure there’s one under the tree this year for your furbaby 🙂 .

Taste The Difference With iCoffee Opus


If you’re a coffee drinker, you have probably heard of iCoffee and drooled over the thought at owning one of their machines.  When I got the opportunity to review the iCoffee Opus I nearly jumped out of my skin with excitement.


If you haven’t heard of the Opus yet, it’s only one of the most awesome single serve brewers on the market.  Opus features Spin Brew technology to spin, steam, and stir your coffee inside the brew cup leaving you with a fragrant, aromatic cup of coffee that’s to die for.  Your Opus will be compatible with every K-Cup, OneCup, RealCup capsule, private label cups, as well as reusable brew cups!  You can completely customize your coffee drinking experience at the drop of a hat, satisfying for every coffee drinker.


I love the sleek design of the iCoffee Opus.  It has easy to use buttons, crisp clear display screen, and a modern design that fits into any home.  You can choose the size of your cup each time you brew.  You can choose 4-12 oz, and can change the amount by 1/2 ounce increments to get exactly the right cup.


You can brew directly into your favorite mug for drinking coffee at home…


Or, you can remove the drip tray and use taller travel mugs for when you’re on the go.

The removable water reservoir holds up to 75 ounces so you don’t have to fill the machine each time you want a cup of coffee.  You’ll be able to make a fresh cup of coffee, cocoa, or tea for yourself and your guests without missing any socialization time with them to stop and refill your machine…perfect!

The iCoffee Opus features just too many great things to ignore, and every home deserves to have the Opus in it!

Make Your Child’s Holiday a Snuggable One With Elf Workshoppe


Elf Workshoppe is the huggable, snuggable elf bringing kids joy and cheer during the holiday.  Forget sitting on a shelf…a kid and their elf are meant to laugh and play together.  There are a variety of different elves to choose from so you can pick one that’s just right for your child.  Elf Workshoppe also offers accessories so your elf has a little home away from home.


I chose the blonde elf girl because she looks like my little blonde princess.  My daughter likes wearing her hair in braided pigtails so they can match…twinsies!


My daughter is always making beds for her barbies and little toys out of blocks and different things so the elf bed was the perfect choice for us.


Immediately my daughter named her elf…she said Vanessa was the “perfect name for a cute little girl like her”.  She loves taking Vanessa along with her everywhere she goes so she can show her that she’s being a good girl.  She’s hoping Vanessa will pass the word along to Santa and score some brownie points come Christmas day.


A bed just isn’t a bed without a pillow and blanket.  My daughter insisted Vanessa have a pillow and blanket so she could be comfy and cozy.  Of course, I see her point and wouldn’t want her to worry that her elf is uncomfortable so what else would I do but make her some bedding?  We are hosting an important guest after all.

I love the idea of a snuggable elf.  In a short amount of time Elf Workshoppe has brought a new level of joy and wonder to the holidays for my little girl.  Every little kid needs an elf who can have fun with them this holiday season.

Stay Fresh With New Dry Sprays From Unilever


Unilever has completely changed the game with their new line of Dry Spray Antiperspirants.  They go on dry, and leave no residue so you can feel completely confident and let your inner self shine.


Unilever was generous enough to let me try the new Dry Sprays out and share my opinion with all of you!


The Axe Dry Spray, Night scent is my husband’s favorite of the Dry Sprays.  My husband works hard for a living.  Every day he’s moving and installing houses so his antiperspirant needs to work as hard as he does.  The Axe Dry Spray works a whole lot better than my husband or I anticipated.  Not only does it keep him dry, but he comes home smelling as good as when he left the house in the morning.


The Degree Dry Sprays also smell really good.  Just the right amount of scent without being too much.  The Degree Men’s spray I decided to have my almost-teenage son try out.  He’s at the age where he’s really starting to smell like man.  He doesn’t like wet, goopy feeling armpits so getting him to do something about his smell has been the fight of the century until now.  Dry Spray has been the perfect compromise.  The Women’s Degree Dry Spray is just as awesome, if not more so, than the invisible solid.  I’m a Degree girl all the way and the Dry Spray leaves nothing to be desired.


The Dove Dry Spray is just as effective as the others but seem to have ‘lighter’ scents.  They work really well and keep on going.  I love having the benefits of Dove in the new and desirable Dry Spray.

Play And Learn With Caillou Toys


If you have a small child…chances are you know who Caillou is.  I am one of 10 children, and now have 3 of my own…so between my siblings and my own children, Caillou has been a part of my life for the past 18 years.  My daughter is the newest Caillou fan of the family, and we were very excited when we got the opportunity to review so Caillou toys.

Pizza (1)

I’ve never met a child that didn’t like pizza, and now they can create their own with the Caillou Build Your Own Pizza Set!  The pizza set comes with everything your child will need to make their favorite pizza, and slices of their friends favorite pizza for them too!  Sauce, cheese, tomatoes, peppers, mushrooms…yummy!  The set also comes with a slicer and serving spatula to help your child serve their creation as well.


My daughter had SO much fun making, cutting, and serving the pizza.  Every day now when it’s lunch time we have pretend pizza followed by real lunch.  She loves making her own pizza and finds it hilarious when I pretend to gobble it all up fast and get a tummy ache.  If your child is a Caillou fan I’m sure they (and you) know the episode where Caillou gets to make his own pizza.  The Build Your Own Pizza Set is the perfect toy for any Caillou fan!


Caillou helps his father and grandfather build a home for a needy family, and now your child can tinker and play with Caillou tools too!


No matter what my husband is fixing, my daughter is right there alongside him.  She wants to hammer, screw, clamp and saw just like daddy does.  As soon as I opened the package of tools, she told me that her kitchen was broken and she was going to fix it.  She went right to work using all the tools and was all smiles.

I love watching my little one play and imagine while building her motor skills as well.  These Caillou toys would make the perfect gift for any Caillou fan.
