Finding A Style You Own – Warby Parker Home Try On Program

Finding A Style You Own Warby Parker Home Try On My last two pairs of prescription glasses have been Warby Parkers and I honestly can’t say enough about them.  The first reason being the convenience of it all.  I sit at home on my computer and pick 5 pairs of glasses that I would like to try on and it comes in the mail free of charge directly to me.  Then I decide which one I want, upload my prescription,  send the others back and voila I am rocking my next stylish pair of glasses.  Secondly, the quality is phenomenal.  There is such a wide variety to choose from and so many different styles and color options.

This year my husband got an infection in his eye and had to be without his contacts for almost two weeks.  To say he was traumatized is an understatement.  He had some glasses that he had never quite adjusted too and did not like the look of.  So he stayed close to home, but it pushed him to invest in some glasses he wouldn’t mind wearing.  And, so he embarked on his journey to find some new specs and to take advantage of the Home Try On Program.  Check out his different choices below. Isn’t he handsome?  OK, I digress, lol.

As humble as he claims to be I think he had fun modeling for me.  Honestly, the hard part comes next because there were so many different looks for him to choose from, but he was finally able to narrow it down to one.

Keeping Warm – My Favorite Cool Weather Teas

My Favorite Cool Weather Teas

Even though I definitely consider myself a transplanted Georgia Peach, I am still very much a Jersey Girl at heart.  That being said, I suppose I should embrace the cold. But, the fact of the matter is that, I have now lived in Georgia longer than I lived in New Jersey. Over time, I have grown accustomed to the warmer climate.  So as much as I love this time of the year, I do not like the chill that comes with it, even if it is an excuse to purchase your Fall Must Haves.

I am always looking for something warm to drink during the fall and winter months.  I love coffee, but I know that drinking it all day long will jeopardize my already sketchy sleep pattern.  And, I love wine but some how I think drinking wine all day will mess with my productivity.   So… since I am turning into my Mom anyway.  I decided to start drinking tea, after my AM cup of coffee, of course.  After taste testing a lot more tea than I care to recall, I picked my favorites.

My Favorite Cool Weather Teas

a.  Celestial Seasonings Raspberry Zinger b. Celestial Seasonings Mandarin Orange Spice c.  Caribbean Dreams Peppermint Tea d.  Bigelow Pomegranate Pizzazz

Herbal teas have long been praised for their medicinal benefit.  I didn’t pick my favorites this way.  For me, herbal tea is all about the flavor and the experience.  As you can tell by my choices, I love fruity teas.   The peppermint tea was just something I am familiar with, because we drank it a lot as children, and it definitely has soothing properties.  I want my tea to simply be soothing, tasty, and warm.

What are your favorite non-coffee/non-alcoholic beverages that keep you warm during the colder months?

My Product Review of the Rubbermaid LunchBlox

I was both excited and nervous about my baby girl heading off to Kindergarten.  There are way too many reasons to name.  But, 1 BIG reason was that she has numerous food allergies, and can never be without her EpiPen.  We have known about all of her allergies for years, and she knows what she can and can not eat.  But, I couldn’t help but worry about her eating something that was on her NO GO List.  In addition to that she is a Picky Picky Eater.  As any parent who has a picky eater knows, having a child with these kind of issues can make things difficult, and, can turn you into a short order cook.  There is very rarely anything that she always loves and she tires of food easily.

So of course, my first thought was what am I going to feed her.  I went to favorite spot for ideas.  You guessed it Pinterest using this Search. I knew that she needed variety,  just to ensure that she was eating enough to be productive during the school day. My next thought was the Bento Box (pictured here).  There were so many different kinds to choose from, and  many different price ranges too.  I had pretty much settled on them.

But, then ….  on my weekly Grocery Shopping Trip, I ran across the Rubbermaid LunchBlox for Tall Lunch Bags.  This set up was perfect for us because of the the Tall Hello Kitty Lunch Bag, that we had already purchase for our little one.  And…. it happened to be on SALE, another plus.  We started trying it out, the week before school started just to see what could fit in it.  Since she most likely would not be eating the school lunch for fear of an allergy mix up, I wanted to make sure that her lunch would be something that she would enjoy.  I did not want her to feel like she was missing out.

My Rubbermaid Lunch Blox Product Review - Mom and Kindergarten Approved

First, I wanted to make sure that she could open it by herself. ☑

Second, I wanted to make sure that we could keep her fruits, veggies and drinks cold.☑

Third, I wanted to make sure that the ice pack that came with the bag wouldn’t melt through out the day and make a mess. ☑

The Rubbermaid LunchBlox passed all my tests, plus it’s Microwave Safe, Dishwasher Safe, Freezer Safe and BPA Free, as listed on their website here.

My Product Review of the Keurig 2.0 Brewing System

Keurig 2.0 K350 Brewing System Product Review Almost as important as all the supplies that I had to purchase for back to school, is the fuel I need to start my day.  Now that the girls are a little bit older, I managed to get to sleep in several mornings during the summer.  My body quickly adjusted to the down time.  Getting back on track and used to getting up by 7am has been, dare I say challenging.  But, with no other choice I drag myself from the bed every morning. And, run straight to the Coffee.

[Enter the Keurig 2.0.]  Over the summer our house got hit by lightning and it fried our Keurig. Coffee is a HUGE part of my day.  So you can imagine my dismay when I went to brew my coffee and realized that is was NO BUENO.  Ugh!!  My warranty was up, and I was hesitant to call Keurig.  But, I thought maybe they could walk me through troubleshooting and or help me to reset it. The customer service rep was very pleasant and quickly pulled up my info and confirmed that my warranty had indeed expired.  BUT….. She was willing to honor it anyway.  (You can imagine me doing the Tootsie Roll, Cabbage Patch or whatever old.. dance you can think of here.)  I expected her to say send it back and they would repair it or replace my existing model.  NOPE… Boy, was I wrong.  Instead she told me that they would be upgrading me to the Keurig 2.0 K350 Brewing System.  I was super excited.  And, got off the phone pleased.

But, then I remembered that I had actually looked into this model and that there had been a lot of chatter about it.  I wont say that the chatter deterred me from purchasing it, as it was on My Later Wish List.  But, it did give me pause.  However, I certainly wasn’t going to look a gift horse in the mouth.  My box came in the mail about three days later.(Fast Turn Around) The Keurig 2.0 comes with a Keurig Carafe, 6 K-Cup Packs, 6 Carafe Packs and a Water Filer Handle and Cartridge.


So, here’s my review:  I actually have nothing bad to say about this model. It’s touch screen.  It holds more water than the previous model.  It can make a cup of a whole carafe.  I never had use for the whole pot, but I imagine if I ever have overnight guests this would come in handy.  Most people thought that they would not be able to use other brands of coffee since it had to have the official Keurig logo.  Fact is that most brands carry the Keurig logo. I drink Foldger’s Black Silk.  I haven’t found the K-Cups to be anymore expensive.  They have an additional 8 K-cups in the package, so naturally it cost more but it balances out.   You have more choices in how you want your coffee to brew, Strength, Size of Cups (4oz-10oz), or Carafe.  You also have more choices as far as Set Up.  You can choose your language, whether or not you want to keep it in Energy Saving Mode, your altitude, and even set a Water Filter Reminder.

If you are considering upgrading this Model gets the Stage Presents Stamp of Approval.  For more information on this model, check it out here.  Is Coffee an important part of your day too?  Check out this My Blood Type is Coffee Print – Available for Instant Download in Our Etsy Store.
