Product Reviews, Eating Healthier, and Being a Slob

Well, I’m officially making some intentional efforts now at trying to lose a bit more. I don’t like the tummy that is coming back, nor the inflammation. I see now that even with vitamins and supplements, I get stiff and also the pain comes back in my right upper arm. But give me a shake and the life comes back into me, I can feel it and I miss it. The nutrition qualities of this shake is incredible and now that it is summer, I can drink cold again. That said though, I’m finishing off the grits this morning, lol. THAT SHAKE/SUPPLEMENT COMPANY I USE had the Cookies and Cream come back out so I ordered one. It’s my favorite flavor I think and I add PB Powder to it. I’m about out of PB Powder. Since so many of us do THAT SHAKE/SUPPLEMENT COMPANY I USE at work, we have a blender at work that we all use. I try to wipe it down with a clorox wipe, just like we do the coffee pot handles and microwave buttons. But at least I’ll have another canister of the good stuff for a while. I’m only ordering one because I have so many flavors and I am really wanting Pina Colada to come back. They have not done any new or resurgance of shakes in a while. They have been introducing and changing some existing products instead.

Saw this on Facebook today. I agree. There is one thing in life that is certain – I like coffee and I’m thankful to have it. I require it. If I don’t have it, I’m liable to say things like this:

So the last couple of days I have been a total slob. I really didn’t notice it until I got up this morning. I said to myself “Where are you and what have you done with yourself”. lol As I walk into the bathroom there are coffee cups, make up, hair equipment and all sorts of stuff on the counter. On the floor are the boxes and stuffing the new hair equipment came in.

In my office I have finger nail polish and nail supplies out, notes, cotton balls, mail, my new earbuds and all the packaging it came in. And there are clothes on the floor in my changing room (extra bedroom). Somehow I’ve let things go in the last day or so. That is not like me. I pride in having clear horizontal spaces. Can’t stand it if I don’t. Normally. It’s bothering me this morning, but yesterday and the day before I must have just flit from one thing to the other just messing up everything.

It’s true that the new hair styling air brush came in Wednesday along with the new wireless ear buds and charger. And I didn’t have much time to play with either, just ripped it open and began using it leaving it’s trash in the wake.

It’s true that I had enough of my nails yesterday and had to trim them and then left all the stuff out. My nails, with their ever brittle cuts and tears, are just looking horrible since I’m trying to just go with natural nails and simple polish. It’s not working very well but I’m making myself wait until mid July to see if I can’t train them again to sturdy up and look nice without having to have them done every month. They are so brittle. I mainly want to save money.

I spend about $280.8 or more just on my nails alone per year at the rate of 22 and 32 flip flopping that price every three weeks as you do white in 3 weeks and both pink/white the other set of three weeks. No doubt I’ll spend some on polish doing it on my own. But Epidemic Sound is about that much per year. I just have so many subscriptions like that with the blogging, vlogging, and music scene. I have the iTunes per month fee also. I love love love it though. So I figured I’d offset those little amounts by the cutting back on nails. I am not cutting back on the pedis though. And I may treat myself to a mani on occassion and let them do them but just a regular nail session and not the pink/white solar or dip. It’s just too hard to get it off. Your stuck doing it if you want your nails to look nice. The last I had mine done was early Feb I think. It’s mid June and I’m still dealing with it. My nails are so scarred and fragile.

So yeah, bottom line is I need to pick up after myself tomorrow! Like Scarlet, there is always tomorrow!

So a review of this Hot Air brush.

I love how it does my hair. I’m using one of the middle brushes, probably the one shown on the wand. And it was easy to use except for turning it on. See the pink switch at the bottom? It is VERY difficult to turn. Matter of fact, I just almost can’t turn it. But with determination I can finally make it move. And sometimes when it finally moves it moves too much – like all the way over and you have to keep trying to get the setting you want. Also the low setting blows out higher than the medium setting and about the same as the high setting, so that is weird. However, I do like how it styles my hair. I don’t have a lot of styling time in the mornings but it quickly does what I need and is more efficient than my hair dryer and styling brush. It just gets a better hold. You do have to be careful though, much like a curling iron – not to grab the brush section because it’s hot. You can grab the tip though when you need the extra hold. So it has some quirks, but I like it enough to keep it. I will do a review on line because the company needs to fix these things. It’s ridiculous how you almost need a burly man to come turn the thing on.

And as for these. I give them the thumbs up. Surprising clarity and I love not having to deal with the cords as much as I get up and down in my office. I can even go to the bathroom with them in my ear or the break room and I can hear the music still. ha. They will also let you answer calls. I’ve not read the instructions yet. I’m a rulebreaker I guess. But I will. I need to see how certain things work. They paired up with my iphone immediately. I am enjoying them immensely.

I went to Logans yesterday for lunch. It was perfect and what I needed. I had taken a frozen rice/bean 250 calorie thing but I was really needing some chicken and greens so the lunch I took stayed in the freezer and I headed out. The chicken was a bit on the drier side but the broccoli was so good. I wish I’d had more. They must cook it in butter and chicken broth is all I can figure. Broccoli that good is no doubt covered in butter. ha.

So this is about all I know. I am happy that it is Friday!

I will say that I’ve made significant progress on the next iMovie. I’m sorry it’s taking so long. Work gets in the way of everything right? lol. I have also had to focus on some other to do items before pressing on with the next segment. I’ve been worried that it would not come together as I’m basically trying to make something of nothing exciting. The past month has been no different from the month before hardly. But the right music pulls it together.

You know it’s weird, but I’ve noticed that my brain processes the iMovie overnight. I wake up in the night or the next morning with ideas. So that is interesting. I love coming home from work, getting a glass of wine and setting into it. It’s very relaxing to me. However, I am ready to get out and explore and do some things so we have some different things to share. We will soon.

I worry though that one or both of us will get the Rona and our plans will change. It’s typical for me to worry about such because I like to be planned up against anything that could go wrong. I can only control so much of that. It only takes one time of setting your phone down on something that has the virus and forgetting to clean off the phone before you touch it. I’m horrible about that. If I get it it’ll be from my phone! Or where I’ve touched something and touched my glasses. I’m so sick of thinking about germs!

I just want to curl up with this little guy. Roger and I snuggled last night. He is a good snuggle button. The dogs get their trims tomorrow and we are going to graduation shower of the daughter of some long time friends. I don’t know if we are all making the right decisions yet on all this. It only takes one person to have it and give it to the rest and we take it and give to others. But society is coming out now and businesses are coming back. The virus rates are going up. But what can you do? We can’t stay home forever. I figure we are all going to get it eventually. I’m not getting the vaccine, so….

Anyway, I need to get ready and get in to work. It’s Friday Friday Friday and I’m a happy girl about that. Busy day tomorrow but Sunday we can chill and get the laundry done and go the store and hit the reset button for another week, and clean up all these messes I’ve made. Doesn’t leave a lot of room for play but I imagine we will sneak in some play time.

Ahhhhhh I just want to stay here all day and play! We did get to read some last night after dinner. I’ve not sat and just read in a while. It was nice.

OK over and out.

  1. I’m so tired of thinking about the virus. It’s out there for sure. Just be aware. Is that enough?
    There are several of those hot air brush dryers/stylers out there. I bought one about a year ago. But, it’s too big & heavy/awkward to use. Or is it me? It had great reviews.
    Silly girl problems. lol

    • These had various brushes. It’s a little awkward but works faster than my hair dryer and brush and I get the back done easier and that’s the biggest difference for me as I can’t do the back easily with blow dryer and brush. Yes- girl problems lol!

  2. It’s certainly not you to put up with things not being tidy you definitely need this weekend. As I write this I think it might be getting near to the time you can leave work and head home to what is going to be a good weekend.
    Was there any reason that you didn’t keep up with your Izonix ( not the right name I know !!) eating plan, you took of such a lot of weight and looked so good. I’m glad though that your still having the drinks at least….Glad that your not going to have your nails done so often I really don’t think it’s good for your nails always to have them covered if they don’t get air to them they always seem to get dry and brittle. I only twice had my nails done and after the second time I noticed my nails were not looking as good as usual so I didn’t get them done again, they looked terrible I bought nail strengthening cream from the chemist and after awhile it helped but took quite a long time, now they look good I don’t even need a clear varnish. I use a buffer and they come up nice pink and shiny….
    Have a great weekend. Enjoy every minute. Love you lots xxx

  3. I have a hard time drinking cold shakes in the winter. And I was tired of them, as well. Plus I had the diverticulitis (supposedly) and well my whole appetite and hunger just changed. I still don’t really have a good appetite back, but I know I’m hungry. I kinda decided to just let myself eat whatever I wanted until I could heal myself. Then COVID happened and all the other stuff our nation is going through. We all have just needed comfort food. So now we have all gained our COVID weight and looking to lose. I’m still not convinced now that what happened to me was diverticulitis. It was so different.

  4. I just wanted to say Have a great weekend. Try to get some rest. I need something to give my hair some volume on top. Does the brush give your hair volume? My hair has grown long, but it is flat on top and the ends are curly.
    I have got to check out your u tube. Sounds like that is your calling. It is great you found something you enjoy so much.
    Be careful and take care when out and about. Wear your mask and avoid crowds. Stay safe. I am not going out much but when I do I wear my mask.
