I received a pair of heels to wear, and share how I felt about Pinkbasis.com products. Let me tell you, they surpassed my expectations by far! Since there are so many places to shop for shoes I figured Pinkbasis wouldn’t be much of a difference, but I was wrong. I seriously spent hours browsing through their large selection until I was able to decide between a few heels I liked. ¬†I was very surprised to see there truly is something for every taste; whether you’re looking for work shoes, clubbing heels, or everyday shoes, Pinkbasis.com has all bases covered. Browse their huge shoe selection by visiting their site Pinkbasis.com

The other thing I really liked about Pinkbasis.com is that they are not only a shoe shop, they also offer clothing and costumes for all occasions, swimwear in all kinds of styles ( bikinis, monokinis, tankinis…) and accessories to complete your look. It’s your one-stop-shop ūüôā

So, after hours spent looking for a pair of heels I liked most- there were so many, choosing one was a tough task! I finally went for their strappy platform heels “Ravish” in black. They were my first choice since I have been looking for a pair of heels with straps due to their versatility. They can be worn with jeans, leggings, skirts or shorts; can be taken from day to night, and dressed up or down. Check them out below!

neuroBLISS Giveaway: happiness in every bottle

NeuroBliss is a citrus tasting drink with the tagline “happiness in every bottle”. The fact the whole bottle is only 35 calories is reason enough to be happy ūüôā

*GIVEAWAY CLOSED* thanks to all who participated and shared the neuroBLISS giveaway. Congrats to Lisa Clark I was unable to hear back from Lisa after trying to reach her via email and looking for her on Facebook ūüôĀ so I went back to random.org and got a #1 Have contacted Annie C. !

What’s in neuroBLISS?

NeuroBliss is a lightly carbonated drink in a 14.5oz bottle. The look of the drink is a little different, looks kind of like coconut water in a white modern-shaped bottle. The main ingredient found in it is carbonated water, other ingredients include: crystalline fructose, gum acacia, ester gum, natural flavors, citric acid, malic acid, sucralose, sodium benzoate, potassium sorbate and soy.

As previously stated, the entire bottle is only 35 calories and contains 9g of carbs and 9g of sugar. It has 50% of your recommended daily vitamin D intake, 30% of thiamin, 25% of niacin, 200% of vitamin B6, and 100% of your vitamin B12 intake. NeuroBliss’s secret to happiness is a 335 mg proprietary blend containing: l-theanine, phosphatidylserine, choline alphoscerate, and chamomile.

What does neuroBLISS do for you?

Simply put, it helps you “de-stress the healthy way”. Neurobliss is specially formulated¬†with ingredients like L-theanine¬†to help you keep your focus and enhance your mood.

My opinion on NeuroBliss

The taste alone was enough to put me in a better mood, it was very similar to drinking a Squirt without all the carbonation and sugar found in a soda. After my first bottle, I did feel more alert at work. It seemed as though I was working more efficiently while in a better mood, and no I have not been paid to say that!

Overall I really liked neuroBliss, the citrus smell and taste, the cool bottle shape, and the fact¬†I actually felt it have an effect on me are all pros. The only con I can point out is the fact it’s not a low-priced drink (about $2.50 at grocery stores). The bottle warns against children under 12 years of age¬†and pregnant/nursing women¬†from drinking it without their physicians consent. It doesn’t further explain why, but I think it has something to do with neuroBliss containing l-theanine which is an amino acid commonly found in green tea.

NeuroSonic review and giveaway

How would you like to find a burst of passion, mental performance, or¬†happiness¬†in a bottle?!… With NeuroSonic, a scientifically formulated drink with nutrients to keep you going, now you can have that and more!

 

 

It seems there are many enhancement drinks out there promising great results, but most are loaded with sugar or caffeine and leave me shaking like a chihuahua.  I was intrigued by Neurosonic from all the ingredients it listed and great benefits promised, but was hesitant on trying them out. I was thrilled when NeuroSonic contacted me to give them a try, and share a pack with one of you as well!!! (Giveaway guidelines at the bottom).

****Giveaway Closed****¬† Congratulations @TinaBarker , you were lucky enough to not only comment first but also win! Will get in touch with you for your shipping info shortly. Thanks to all of you who shared this giveaway, a similar one is coming up in a few days so stay tuned for details ūüôā

NeuroSonic 

My box of drinks arrived and included two bottles of NeuroSonic. Each bottle of ¬†it is only 35 calories and 14.5 oz. It’s lightly carbonated and has a semi-sweet taste to it without being too overwhelming. It tasted kind of like a sparkling berry drink. This drink is said to enhance mental performance by providing energy, supporting your focus and concentration, supporting your memory and promoting healthy aging. Everyone needs more energy and focus, especially during working hours.

As I mentioned, the bottle only has 35 calories, is packed with vitamins and only has 3% daily limit of carbs. It has 475 mg of¬†proprietary blend which include: taurine, caffeine, phosphatidylserine, L-theanine, choline alphoscerate and resveratrol. ¬†I had a bottle on a day off, in which i desperately needed energy to get my workout done and something to help clear that cloudy head feeling from a long week. I felt a boost halfway through my drink, it didn’t give me jitters or mess with my heartbeat, but i did feel the caffeine’s effect. Helped clear my head, and get my workout in. Goal accomplished! Overall, I really enjoyed this drink, it tasted good and it definitely helped raise my energy level to focus on my day. I definitely see myself buying a bottle when I need extra motivation to workout or when I know a long day of work is ahead of me.

NeuroSun

This smart bottle stating to have “the power of the sun” tasted like a lightly carbonated pineapple drink with a slight hint of lime. It also had 35 calories, 3% carbs, 9 grams of sugar, and the special ingredient; 250% of your daily intake of vitamin D, hence the name NeruoSun. NeuroSun is also a 14.5 oz bottle and contains; filtered water, crystalline fructose, natural flavors, ¬†and citric acid, to name a few ingredients.

Besides the fact this drink is packed with vitamin D, I’m sure you’re still wondering what other benefits it has. NeuroSun pretty much gives you all the benefits of your daily intake of vitamin D from the sun, minus the harmful exposure to its UV rays. Vitamin D ¬†is needed to support healthy bones, your immunity system, and help keep a balanced mood. I like sunbathing, but most of the times I get sleepy after and I know too much sun exposure is harmful; NeuroSun is said to be able to give you all the benefits of getting some sun without all the side effects of baking under its heat. Pretty smart concept, and as I said it tasted delicious. I enjoyed the taste a lot as compared to the other drinks, but maybe it’s because I really like pineapple. I can’t fully testify to it’s vitamin D replacement concept, but I did feel happy and a bit relaxed after my drink.

NeuroTrim

NeuroTrim is a hunger management supplement in a 14.5 oz bottle and 35 total calories. Only has 3% carbs, 4% fiber, 9 grams of sugar, and 50% of your daily vitamin D intake. It also contains a proprietary blend of purified konjac fiber.

This drink has a fiber based formula which helps curb your appetite and support healthy weight loss. It has a fruity and refreshing taste, it does taste sweet but not like a diet drink. This dietary supplement provides best results when you drink it 30-60 minutes prior to a meal, three times a day. Exercise and sensible eating are required as with any other supplement. I can’t attest for any weight loss properties in this drink, since I didn’t drink as many as directed. I did however feel full when eating faster than I normally do . It also has no caffeine for those who are looking for a caffeine-free weight loss supplement.

NeuroPassion

NeuroPassion tastes like a slightly carbonated fruit punch, it is a nutritional supplement which is said to help you “perform the healthy way”. This bottle is a full 35 calories and includes Vitamin D, B6 and B12. Also has a proprietary blend of L-citrulline, taurine, caffeine, phosphatidylserine, l-theanine, choline alphoscerate, and resveratrol. ¬†Neuropassion is said to help sustain energy, improve performance, increase drive and stamina, and enhance cognitive function.

The taste of NeuroPassion wasn’t my favorite, but I did like the slight energy boost I got from the caffeine. It didn’t cause jitters, or seem overwhelming. I couldn’t notice a difference on an improved performance or drive, but I can testify for the sustained energy portion. Maybe I’m just so passionate, this drink has no effect on me ūüėČ

NeuroSleep

Neurosleep has an orange taste, similar to kool-aid. This one is non-carbonated and also 35 calories a bottle. It states to have “Zzzzzz… in every bottle”, but I am not a big fan of sleeping pills or drinks unless it’s necessary so I sipped the bottle for a taste test instead. Neurosleep is not carbonated and has a sweet diet taste to it, not one of my favorites. A while after sipping almost half the bottle, a relaxed feeling came over me and I started feeling a little sleepy. So much for trying to only get a taste test! But I am glad I can testify that Neurosleep made me sleepy.

Neurosleep has 3% carbs, 9 grams of sugar, and 13% of your magnesium daily intake. It also has a proprietary blend of L-theanine, melatonin, 5-hydroxytryptophan, and taurine. The melatonin is what helps put you in a sleepy state of mind. Drinking this bottle will help promote a restful sleep, relieve muscle cramps, support relaxation, and help normalize sleep patterns. Neurosleep does warn on the back of the bottle against driving or similar activities after drinking it.

Julep maven box review & giveaway!

*Giveaway closed. And the winner is….
Meaghan Mulligan
Thank you all for reading and participating! Get your own maven box at www.Julep.com for only $5 with your coupon code BEAUTYCAREME at checkout!!

Have you become a Maven yet?!

I was given the opportunity by the lovely Jennifer from Julep Maven to check out the cute items received by Mavens all over. She was so generous she decided to share the love and host a Julep Maven box giveaway for one of you lucky ladies ūüôā Read on to see what the Maven box has inside and what you can do to win your very own! Or redeem your coupon code BEAUTYCAREME at Julep.com¬†to get your first Maven box for only $5 !!!

What is Julep.com all about?!

Julep is a program which starts off by you taking a quick style quiz to find¬†products that suit your personal style. Whether you’re classic, boho, or a bombshell Julep has the right stuff for you. Julep Maven has nail polishes that range in colors as well as mani/pedi treatments. For $19.99 a month you receive a Maven box with cute surprises that suit your style. If you’d prefer to skip a month or aren’t pleased with a specific month’s Maven box contents, you are more than encouraged to skip that month or as many as you’d like. Nail polish junkies, this program is definitely for you!

What comes inside a Maven box?! 

My Julep Maven box arrived in record time! Literally¬†three to four days. It came in a sexy little red box (perfect for the holiday!) with their logo an name inprinted on the box. The contents were wrapped in matching tissue paper, and individually packaged. My lovely little box included two nail polishes (each valued @ $17.00) in shades “Nicole” and “Whitney”. It also included a silver glitter pot to add some glitz to my polish, a glycolic hand scrub and samples of their age defying hand¬†brightener¬†and hand cream with SPF 30. As well as a very sweet welcoming letter. Pretty nice bundle for the price!

Let’s check out the products!

First let’s talk about “Nicole”. The color is a cheery red with shimmer to it, kind of reminds me of candied apples or candy cane red. Check out the picture below to see the shade. I added the glitter to the red for a nice holiday look. I took the pictures without applying top coat, since the polish itself had a nice glossy finish already. Though i do recommend you using top coat to seal the glitter in place, and prevent chipping.

“Whitney” is a nude shade of polish that i definitely adored. I love the look of natural lips and nails, but never find a polish that looks quite as i imagined. I must say i was deeply impressed by “Whitney”, and definitely see me ordering another tube once mine runs out. Check out the shade below! Those pictures were taken prior to applying top coat again so you can see the glossy finish, and it only took me one coat to get that finished look. This shade is described as a “mushroom greige, the perfect neutral” and i most definitely agree with it being a perfect neutral. “Whitney” was my favorite surprise inside my maven box ūüôā

The glitter pot was easy to apply and came in a good portion. I simply sprinkled some over my freshly painted nails, but you can get fancy and use a brush to do a glitter-version of a french. Glitter always adds a fun and girly look to nails!

The hand scrub wasn’t too impressive, it came out more¬†liquid-like than i’d expect a scrub to feel like. But it cleansed my hands alright. Followed it with the hand cream which had a soft, thick texture to it. I also tried the hand brightening cream which felt silky, and left my hands feeling ultra soft without a greasy feeling. The soft and silky-feel to my hands lasted quite a while, which is a definite plus. ¬†Both the hand cream and age defying brightener had a nice scent to them.

Overall the Maven box program is a great idea at an affordable price. I especially recommend it if you love having your nails done, and trying out new polishes quite often. The price for a Maven box full of beauty surprises is only $19.99 a month and you can skip a month if you’d like. Check out their website www.julep.com¬†to see their products, or take a style quiz and become a Maven!
