Winner! - Nubar Nail Lacquers

So many exciting things are happening all at the same time that it feels like I can't share them fast enough! I have more good news ... I won another awesome giveaway! I entered this one by leaving a comment on a Nail's Magazine blog post!

The prize was 4 beautiful Nubar nail lacquers! I had never even heard of this brand before, but I'm so glad I read that blog post because now I know that they are pretty amazing! All of their products are vegan and cruelty free. One of the things I was happy to learn about these nail lacquers is that they are free of formaldehyde, toluene, and DBP (phthalate). 

When you look at the bottles, you can see they are different from most nail polishes. The long, easy to grip brush handle fits comfortably between my fingers and allows me to apply the lacquer easily onto my nails. I was also impressed by the quality of the formula. It has great pigmentation and is not too thick or too runny. 

The shades I received were:
  • Sphinx Purple - which looks more like a bright, hot pink to me, but is absolutely perfect!
  • Palisade - is a sophisticated shade of gray that looks classy!
  • Sexy Gold - there are no words to describe just how unreal this shade is! It actually looks like I have gold on my nails!
  • Matte Finish Top Coat - this top coat gives any nail polish a beautiful matte finish!
I'm really having fun with these nail lacquers and highly recommend them! They have lots of beautiful shades to choose from.
 Have you used this brand before? Let me know in a comment below what shades you've tried!

Hope you're having a wonderful day!

BzzAgent - Ristorante Frozen Pizza for Dinner?

I've always been a fan of quick & easy lunch/dinner ideas so I'm not afraid to try out a frozen pizza if it means saving time. BUT...I like to make sure that it tastes good before I serve it to my family so I had a great opportunity to try out Dr. Oetker Ristorante pizza from BzzAgent and I jumped on it! I received a complimentary FREE COUPON which I redeemed at my local grocery store!

I'm so glad I did because we really loved it!!
I used the convenient Store Locator to make sure that they had it in stock at my local grocery store before heading out!

We were debating whether to try the Mozzarella first, but ended up choosing the Spinaci (spinach!)
While the pizza was in the oven, I prepared a delicious salad & set up the table with candles and all! Dinner was ready in 13 minutes! The flavor of the pizza is very "light" and was not greasy. I'm not sure, but I think the spinach might be the reason for that. The crust was very thin & crispy which is my absolute favorite! We enjoyed it so much we had to go get another one and used a $1.00 off coupon sticker that was stuck on the box! Yay for savings!

One thing I want to mention is that I had seen these pizzas in the grocery store before, but the packaging seemed "plain" and did not call my attention so I hadn't purchased it. It's another example of "don't judge a book by its cover"! We had a great dinner and will definitely be doing it again!

Available in these delicious varieties:
  • Mozzarella: Fresh mozzarella, pesto, sun ripened tomatoes and a mixture of herbs
  • Spinaci: Savory leaf spinach, mozzarella, hearty garlic sauce and sun-ripened tomatoes
  • Speciale: Abundant pepperoni slices and cooked ham
  • Pepperoni Pesto: Fresh pesto, mozzarella and plenty of pepperoni
  • Funghi: Aromatic mushrooms, diced tomatoes, tasty cheese and creamy mozzarella
  • Vegetale: Diced tomatoes, sour cream sauce, onions and pepperoncini peppers
  • Quattro Formaggi: Mozzarella, Edam, Emmental and blue cheeses, all perfectly blended
  • Formaggi & Pomodori: Premium mozzarella, Edam and goat cheeses combined with sliced Roma tomatoes and pesto sauce

Brushing my teeth has never really been something I looked forward to...UNTIL NOW!

As a BzzAgent, I recently had the opportunity to try out the new Crest Be toothpastes absolutely free and they taste so delicious, I actually look forward to brushing my teeth. And I try to do it as much as possible!!
Check out my reaction as I try it out for the first time!
