Curb Cravings with MealEnders – Save 10%

Share this by clicking on the social media icon:

It’s no secret that I struggle with my weight, having been a yo-yo dieter for most of my life. My worst downfall is a penchant for sweets — no matter how full I am, I still want to have dessert. A friend of mine told me to retrain my tastebuds by having a sweet hard candy at the end of of a meal, but I never found one that was truly satisfying. Then I discovered MealEnders, and I’ve been happy with how well they curb my cravings.

Here’s how the DUO-SENSORY TASTE SYSTEM™ works: “MealEnders’ active-taste formula rewards and resets your taste buds, distracting you from the temptation to overindulge.  First the delicious Reward Layer treats you to the sweet taste of dessert – a signal we typically associate with the end of a meal.  Then the Inner Core’s Active-Taste Layer releases a proprietary blend of gentle, cool tingling sensations on the tongue, which engage the trigeminal nerve, distracting your mind from the urge to continue overeating.  You can feel your MealEnder go to work instantly.”

I’ve been using them for a few weeks now. I especially like to have one mid-afternoon around 3 p.m. when I instinctively start walking around the office looking for ice cream (so far, no ice cream has magically appeared in my workplace). I’ve only tried the Chocolate Mint, and I can testify that it is DELICIOUS. The smooth exterior is creamy and chocolatey, while the tingly inside is minty and actually does what it’s supposed to do: it stops me from wanting something else to eat.

I also can’t wait to try the Mocha flavor, because the scent of the inside of the bag is really compelling!

If you want to try MealEnders for yourself, use the coupon code “Save10” for 10% off your order. Here’s to dessert, made even sweeter by the lack of massive calories!

Disclosure: I was sent these bags to try in exchange for a review, but ironically I had purchased 3 of the flavors on my own a few weeks ago, and had already fallen in love. 🙂

The Best Towels for your Bathroom

Share this by clicking on the social media icon:

The home my husband Nathan and I live in is our first-ever purchased house. We did some moving around from Louisiana to Florida for our careers, before we settled down to become homeowners. Now, we live in West Palm Beach, Florida — where the warm weather lasts all year (to my snow-bound friends, #sorrynotsorry, I work in tourism so I love to promote this area, haha!).

You’ve probably realized that I tend to spend on makeup and beauty-related products, but maybe you don’t know that I skimp on home items, like décor and furniture. In the past, when friends and family have come to visit, I’ve been a little embarrassed that our towels were so shabby. The towels were hand-me-downs for the most part, so they were frayed, bleached and worn out so much, they just looked plain ol’ ratchet.

For this reason, I was excited when MicroCotton offered to send me some towels for review. Out of all the home items I felt that I needed, towels were honestly at the top of my list! I am not kidding you when I say that I told Nathan at the beginning of this year, “We need to invest in better towels, ours are ridiculous!”

So it was with much enthusiasm that I opened the box, to see what kind I received.

I ended up getting this kind: Hotel Collection Premier Bath Towel Collection

“Rendered in soft, super-absorbent Annur cotton finished with a clean woven pattern at the hem, the Premier bath towel collection from Hotel Collection provides the ultimate in luxury bathroom appointments. The Hotel Collection Premier Bath Towel Collection is available exclusively at Macy’s retailers and http://www.Macys.com.”

The towels retail for $16 to $67 per towel, depending on the sizes. I received the full range, and I am beyond thrilled! They feel SO LUXURIOUS, just like you are using a hotel towel – the products really do live up to the name. The biggest thing I noticed about these towels is that they are SUPER SOFT. It was surprising, I guess because I was so accustomed to rough-feeling towels that kind of pulled against my skin, if that makes sense.

Nathan said he felt that they could be more absorbent, but I haven’t had an issue with absorbency. They’ve worked just fine, in my opinion, for drying myself off — especially for when I wrap my long hair in a towel turban after I shower.
The best thing about these towels to me, though, is the size – especially for the largest towel. I’ve never had one this large, and it swathes your entire body in super-softness when you step out of the shower. Definitely indulgent, and you feel like you’re at a spa!

Mogwai shows how big the largest towel really is

For my review, I can honestly say these are by far the best towels I’ve ever had. I give the Hotel Collection Premier Bath Towels my two thumbs up!

90’s beauty products are making a comeback

Share this by clicking on the social media icon:

Were the 90’s as good to you as they were to me? That’s when I went through junior high and high school, and I was defining my style. Honestly, looking back, I really didn’t have much of a style at all, haha! My makeup was pretty slap-dash!

But there were some products that really stood out to me, and I was honored to be quoted talking about them in this Styleblazer article. Check it out! CLICK HERE to read the Styleblazer article.
