Favorite New Things

No, no.. I haven't gotten contacted or paid to do any of these reviews. I'm not that cool.. YET. These are just a few things that I've tried lately and really, really liked. And I really like you too, so I thought you should know.

Zero calorie flavoring you can add into your water. It's better than Crystal Light because it comes in a little container and you can squeeze out as much as you'd like. Want just a little something something to your water.. just a quick squeeze will do. Want to feel like you're drinking a Hi-C? Go ahead and squirt it 5 or 6 times. It's up to you. And for $3 something (Target) you can get 24 squeezes. With flavors like Berry Pomegranate, Strawberry Watermelon, and some other Mango flavor I have... I'm in love. If you really want to get crazy you can mix the flavors. Watch out now!

Pop Chips
One day, hubs and I are casually strolling through Costco (one of our favorite past times) and I'm searching high and low for all of the best samples when I came across something called Popchip. I non-comitally taste said "chip" with no intention to buy a bag when YUMMMO... my taste buds were sure surprised by that little ditty. We tried the BBQ flavor and I was immediately instructed to buy a bag.
They aren't fried or bakes.. not really sure what they are to be honest, but delicious and better for you than your normal chip alternative. Since I have no idea what I'm talking about technically, I'll let them tell you..
All natural.

Nothing fake or phony.
Our all-natural pledge: no fake colors, no fake flavors, no preservatives, no fluorescent orange fingertips, and no wiping your greasy chip hand on your jeans. No, really. We only use ingredients you can feel good about eating. And we leave out the bad stuff, like hydrogenated oils and msg, that give snacking a bad name. Because popchips™ brand chips have no preservatives, make sure to get a good chip clip after opening the bag to keep our popped chips fresh. Or better yet, just eat them all at once.
I've seen them at Target too. Get them.

The Ninja
A month or two ago my blender broke. It was great quality.. I just clumsily knocked it off the counter. Nothing is THAT great of quality. It broke into 100 tiny pieces. Yeahh.. it was just as fun as it seems. Normally, it wouldn't be that big of a deal, but I've been make most of Drew's food. The blender worked just fine for that, but since I needed to buy SOMETHING, I wanted to see if I could make the food pureeing process a little smoother (ha.. get it?). I did lots of lots of research and finally decided I wanted to try this Ninja thing out.
You've all seen the infomercials, right? I promise, it's as AHmazing as it looks. Ohhh my gosh! I cannot rave enough about this thing. So quick and much more quiet than the blender. And I can make a lot more at one time. It comes with two different sized pitchers so you don't have to use (and clean) the big one if you just want to make a little salsa or something. Very powerful. To puree, you push the little motor thing (again.. not so swell with the technical terms) down for about 10 seconds a few different times. Viola.. you have puree. Want something chopped? Oh, that will only take about .5 seconds. Seriously.. hold that little bugger down for like a nano second and you have perfectly chopped whateveritisyouarechopping. $44-something at Target. (see a trend?)

EOS Shaving Cream
Stands for Evolution of Smooth.
So true. *turns out they have a whole line of products.. just found that out while getting the link. Excites me*
Anywhoo.. I will never use another shaving cream again. Normal priced. Not normal results. First of all, the smell will cause you to salivate. The only one I've tried is pomegranate raspberry. Delish. Sometimes I smell it just for fun. It will help you shave when you don't really want to, but really should. And then.. when you do shave those gams... it will newly define smooth for you. Wow! I think that if you didn't live in the bone-dry desert like I do, you may not even have to use lotion afterwards. Yeah.. it's that good. This, I've seen everywhere. Feel free to buy this at Target while you are shopping for above items, but you can also venture out to Walmart, Walgreens, etc.

That's all I can think of at the moment. I made a list of items and lost it. Go figure. But I'm pretty sure there were more things listed. Don't you all think that I should get paid for this, or at least get a lifetime supply of these products? I sure do :)

I read this post yesterday and then thought of you while shaving my legs in the shower. I don't use shaving cream. I use water and a razor. I do have a favorite razor type that I've used for a loooong time now (Schick quattro), but I never use shaving cream!

I have to say here, I did inherit body hair from my mom. It's thin and fine (much like the hair on top of my head), so it's not hard to shave and doesn't grow all that fast.

I love my ninja! Use it for everything, including shredding chicken, and once mashed potatoes... that was interesting.
