Be My Valentine Love Potion Smoothie

Now that I have my Nutra Ninja 2 in 1, I am making all sorts of smoothies, juices and of course since it is also a food processor I am making all sorts of treats.

Today, since Valentines Day is just around the corner.  I made this Love Potion.

Love Potion Smoothie
1/4 Stalk Celery
1/2 Avacado
Small piece of Ginger (If you don't have it, use powdered)
1 teaspoon Organic Coconut Oil
2 TablespoonA Orgainc Raw Honey
5 Ice Cubes
Put all into Nutri Ninja and blend

Why do I call this a Love Potion?  For the simple reason some of the foods I am using is a natural aphrodisiac.
For instance,  Celery contains androsterone and adrostenol which when ingested serve as a sexual attractant.  At least that's what they say.  I have injested a lot of celery and my Hubs still sits on the couch watching TV.
Avacado also has a reputation as an aphrodisiac, and of course, ginger spices things up.  Coconut increases blood flow, so that may help in the love department also.
Almonds are a ancient symbol of fertility,  and Organic raw honey is suppose to support testosterone production so we can't forget to add that.

If you just want to go for pretty... just make this simple smoothie using Raspberries, Banana and almond milk.

What kind of smoothies do you make?


Maven iPhone 6 Power Case Review ~ I Can Charge My iPhone While I Am Using It

What a great idea!!  To have a iPhone case that protects my phone, and keeps it charged at the same time.  

If you are like me and don't like to carry a lot of extra equipment with you when you travel

This comes in 4 Great colors.  Black, Blue, Silver and Red.

I loved the red as soon as I set my eyes on it.   Very easy to spot my phone when I have it lying around and I forget where I left it.

You can see how easlily the 

I have an Otter Box for my iPhone 6, but it is so bulky and big that I have a lot of trouble finding a safe spot to fit it in.

The Maven is a very sleek design and easily fits in most of my pockets.
I mostly carry it in my purse, so I am happy that it doesn't take up a lot of space.

The MAVEN boasts:
·         3000mAh
·         110% more power

·         MFi approved
·         4 color options
·         charge & sync capabilities

Should I Get A Down Or Wool Comforter ~ Which is the warmest?

My Hubs and I are having a discussion about what would be the best way to go in a comforter for winter use.    

We have 2 full size beds that I need to buy for.   I want both comforters to match and I want them to be warm.  Really warm!!

I have a Down Comforter that was given to me.

I like that it is lighter weight than a wool comforter, but how warm are they?  This one was given to me and I didn't realize all the down was gone from the middle.... so it isn't really warm.  Are they warm when new?  How Warm?

Plus, the Down comforters I have seen don't come in a lot of colors.   Maybe I need to do another search.

My Hubs has this wool blanket/comforter that he loves.  He says it is really warm.

I think it is a little on the heavy side.  But yet, I like that it looks like a blanket on one side and has sheeps wool on the underside.   

This wool blanket is probably 15 years old, so they do last a long time.  At least this one did.

I have read all the benefits of Down and Wool Comforters.  But, I am still having a hard time deciding what we want.

Neither Down nor Wool should be laundered a lot because they break down.  I like to wash my comforters so they are clean.

Well, that is my dilemma.  Should I opt for Wool, or go with a Down Comforter for both beds?

Buy Or Make Your Own Touch Screen Texting Gloves #DIY

I have been trying to find a pair of gloves that work for texting but are still warm.   Not easy to do.  If any company has a pair... I would love to know.

I decided to try making my own.

You can turn any pair of gloves you own into touchscreen texting gloves.   All you need is some metalic thread.

I bought the Metallic Embroidery Floss at Walmart for about $6 and it will do a lot of gloves.

If you can sew better than I can, you will have a great pair of touchscreen texting gloves.   The ones above that I did are not warm enough, but I just tried this to see if it would work.

 Non Skid Touchscreen Glove By Boss Tech  
Price  $10 to $12 on Amazon are really nice.  I love the way they feel and they are made thick enough that they are really warm.    My Hubs thinks they are the most comfortable gloves he owns.

They come in these sizes
Mens One Size Fits Most Adults
Womens One Size Fits Most Adults

The gloves stretchy so they will fit snug for better use with a touchscreen.   They are also washable.  For me that is a real plus!

They feature a non-slip palm with three touchscreen fingertips on each hand.  The non-slip palm is great for holding your cell phone.  No way will it slip out of your hand.
Since the Non Skid Touchscreen Glove is made of a thick knit and is washable,  I am sure these would last a long time.

The problem was... they didn't work well for our touch screen iPhones.   So, I sewed some metalic thread on them and made them work.
But... they are a great price and since we both like them so much.  Paying $10 to $12 isn't a problem and well worth it.  These gloves are very nice!!
If you are interested in a pair of Boss Tech gloves, just go to Amazon and do a search.  You will come up with them easily.
Isotoner has a lot of different styles to choose from.  This is my first pair of Isotoner Gloves.... They cost a bundle and don't work, NOR DO THEY KEEP MY HANDS WARM.  At $40 some dollars for a pair of these... I will pass.

For Christmas, my Granddaughters got me these pink Isotoner Signature gloves.    They work really well for the touch screen texting.   I love the color and they feel good on my hands.

They do protect from the elements, but could be even warmer.

The cost is around $40 in a department store.

I know there has got to be a company out there that makes a really warm pair of texting Touch Screen Gloves that really work well.   I just haven't been able to find them yet.   Until I do, I will be sewing metallic thread on mine to make them work.

My Bathroom Storage Problem Solved


I had shown you my bathroom in an earlier post about Needing a bathroom REDO.  Check it out and see what a difference in my bathroom!!   Storage was one of my main issues.   I had my cupboards and drawers packed full.   Plus, in my spare bedroom, I would store all of the things that didn't fit.

Above my toilet, I wanted a plant.  I had my Lucky Bamboo Plant that I had no idea what to do with.  It fits perfectly into one of my baskets.

Straight ahead, you can see we added a shelf.  I have so much perfume that I just had crammed in a drawer.  Now, I have it out where I can use it when I want.

One of the things I did was to put a small shelf on the back of my toilet that holds some of the things I may need daily.
Toilet Paper and perfume.  In the jars at the top are fingernail clippers and other little things that you have no idea what to do with but you might need them on a daily basis.

I like having the toilet paper close.  When I run out, I don't want to have to go anywhere to get it.  I want it right there!

This particular shelf is not going to stay.  I am looking for something else to put there.  I just haven't found it yet.

Before and After
You may remember a post I did on my messy bathroom cabinet.  My Hubs added a shelf to help with storage.
Yes, it does need painted, but it sure helped me with the cleaning supplies and extra toilet paper.

I bet a lot of you have messy drawers.  You open a drawer and things fly everywhere.

My Hubs is building me dividers for my drawers to help me stay organized.
So much easier to find things now.

Here is something I really like.  My Hubs made me a row of hanging baskets to keep anything in them I want.   Isn't this a GREAT idea!!

Hanging on my shower door, I have a huge bag that I store a few things in like my pjs I will be wearing that night.

Inside my tub was a huge mess.  I had shampoo bottles, conditioner, my razor, soap, shower gel, candles ... just anything I thought I might need.

I was at a yard sale and found these cute little flower pots that are tan on the outside and glazed a red on the inside.   I knew there would be something I could use them for.   I only paid 25 cents each so I couldn't go wrong.
I know there is still a lot of things I could do in here to make more storage.. but for right now, this is working out.    I do want to change the shelf I have on the toilet and get something more functional.   I am just not sure what at this point.
