The benefits of Meal Replacement shakes

Are you on the go a lot? Do you want an easier way to lose or maintain weight? Do you find it hard to get in your veggies and fruits or do you find it hard to  lose weight with diets?  If so, Meal Replacement drinks may be your answer. 

There's no easy way to lose weight, but let me tell you, nutritional drinks make it a lot easier. Personally, I love Meal replacement shakes and when I start to go down the the wrong path in my diet, I go straight back to them for optimal nutrition and to speed up weight loss or maintain my weight.  I also use them in the sugar free or low sugar variety to get myself off sugar. I have lost as much as 7 lbs in 2 weeks on these kinds of shakes. 

The Ease

The ease of these drinks make it simple for people to get the food intake and nutrients they need when they can't get it from regular nutrition. Most of these drinks are  in multiple flavors, bottled, or you have a mix to shake up or blend with other fruits and veggies. The bottles are so convenient for people on the run or at work. Just stick them in the employee fridge until time to use. 

The Flavors

The flavors of these drinks range a lot, but most you'll find with protein and lots of nutrients in the more sweeter flavors, such as strawberry, vanilla and chocolate. 

If it's the powder packs you want, just bring a bottle to mix it in with water. You can mix the pack in a bottle with some water. Shakes provide a  healthy and very convenient way to get your nutrients and lose weight.  


Bringing mixes with you while traveling is very easy. There is almost always somewhere to stop and add cold water to mix it up or the hotel can supply you with a blender if desired. No matter where you are, with meal replacement mixes, you will never starve and you'll lose weight. 

Anyone who find it difficult to maintain their health with veggies and fruits or wants to lose weight, needs to try these replacement drinks. They can use these drinks to make the most of their diet and exercise regimen and really lose weight fast, but healthfully. I recommend replacing every meal except dinner, with a shake and you will see results fast!

Kushy Foot is back to keep your feet warm and comfy this Fall !

If you have been following me for the last year, you probably know i'm a huge Kushy Foot fan and love reviewing for them. See my last Kushy Foot review to learn more. To sum it up simply, it is a company that makes shaping Hosiery, foldable flats and the most comfy socks on earth.

Kushy Foot products have light padding and ribbing, but that little difference I have found makes a BIG difference for me. Firstly, I practically live in flats in the fall, or i'll wear boots with a heel. My feet can get very sore, especially considering I already deal with chronic pain from a back issue. With my issue, the lumbar spine is what is involved most and those nerves extend all the way down to your feet. Wearing these padded Kushy Foot socks are seriously comfortable and I would not go without them in my flats. the best part about them is that they don't show at all in any flats I have worn them with and that is hard to find! Ladies, you want these socks!

I know that raving about socks may sound silly, but socks are an important part of wardrobe for me. They keep my feet feeling nice and soft and they prevent from chafing and even blisters. It makes everything smooth and comfortable and coverage doesn't have to be thick to make a difference. I don't like wearing thick socks and these are perfect!

Ok, so enough with sock raving. Even though those are my favorites, I still adore the shaping tights. They are definitely comfortable and also hold light padding and ribbing on the foot bottoms. Just like the socks, this creates a light, but detectable massaging effect. The shaping factor is pretty moderate on your stomach. You will definitely get lots of smoothing out with these.

As you can see by the picture, they come in many several different styles and the sizes go up to XL, so this company is plus size friendly to an extent. I have big calves and had no problem stretching the socks and stockings over them. They all have lots of give. I am normally a size XL in tights, but they only have a Large for review and they actually fit me. Not perfectly, but enough that it proves there is a lot of stretch.

Lastly are the Flats to Go foldable flats. These are thin, but they have a great grip on the bottoms. They are perfect to carry around in your purse for those times when your heels or other shoes are killing you. Trust me, these things come in handy. They're not made for all day every day wear, but definitely save the day when needed They come in such cute styles. I also love to put them on when i'm cleaning or after a long day , just to relax in. I've had a pair for a yr now and they've held up well. 

Ok, so i've raved enough about these lovelies, now I want you to try them yourself so you can see what i'm talking about! One person will receive over $50 worth of  exactly what I received for review. You'll receive a wide assortment, to really experience the feel of Kushy Foot!

The holidays are when everyone inevitably shovels all the amazing eats into their mouths, but if you have sensitive teeth, this can be very bitter sweet. If you react to anything with sugar, there may be an answer for your torturous toothdom.

Is it Better to buy an Expensive Power Tool or go for the cheaper one?

    What do you need in your tool Arsenal? 

When deciding if you should spend a little more on a better quality power tool, you have to first take into consideration what you are using it for and will be using it for in the future. You want to prevent from having to buy another one down the line and save money now. Personally, I LOVE my girly power tool, but there are jobs that I wanted to do that I wish I had the right powerful power tool for the job. Sometimes an all in one workhorse is just what you need and it's worth spending extra on it.
