Plexus Slim Review

Plexus Slim

I received a 7 day Plexus Slim Trial pack in exchange for my honest review.
All of us have had that time in their life where they thought they needed to lose that extra 5 or 10 pounds or more. Personally I am on a weightloss journey, I have 50lbs to lose before Decemeber due to a heart issue I have. I am not overly overweight but have set this goal with my doctor to reduce the stress on my heart. 

Those of you that have never tried Plexus, Plexus is a pink powder that you add to water and drink once a day in conjunction with a supplement, which also comes with the Plexus kit. I went into this review completely skeptical... I have tried many different diet options and though some may work for a short amount of time... they aren't a lifestyle changer.

Upon trying Plexus my first reaction was that it doesn't taste very good! Some people compare the taste to Crystal Light, but I drink a lot of Crystal Light and this tastes nothing like it. Its super sweet to start and then has a bitter after taste, like when you get a tylenol stuck in your mouth and it starts to disolve. YUCK! But where you only have to take it once a day, I suggest making sure its crazy cold ... and chug chug chug! Its not something to savor. 

I have taken both the pink powder and supplement for 7 days now. At day 3 I checked the scale and had gone down 3.2 ponds. At day 7 I checked the scale and had gone down a total of 8 lbs. Now the strange thing is I don't feel any different, my clothes still fit the same... maybe its water weight? I am not overly sure, but the scale doesn't lie. 

For the bad?
Plexus tastes horrible! And I would take my powder and supplement at the same time each day as the instructions stated, I took mine around 9 am. Around 10 I would have a HUGE energy boost, but come 3pm I crashed and hard! I mean if I were idle for any amount of time, I would dose off to sleep... Not good! I did not like the feeling that I was just sooo tired... still functional but tired. 

I did lose weight, I am unsure where, but I did lose some. So in that aspect it does work... how long it will progressively help you lose weight? I am unsure, there are so many mixed opinions. It tastes so badly, and you crash majorly in the afternoon and at a $120 price tag per month... I am unsure if this is a route I am going continue to pursue ... I will need to think it over, with both pros and cons. 

Have you tried Plexus? Let me know what your experience has been...

Jamberry Nails Review and Giveaway!

Sooo long time no see everyone in bloggisfere... I have missed you immensely! I am so exited about this review and giveaway. I have been mildly obsessed with the way my nails look for ... well... years. Getting your nails done is fun... but its also super expensive. In this day and age who has $40-$60 to get their nails done every week, or even more often if they chip? Not me... and if I did... I wouldn't want to shell out that cash if I had another option.

I have started using Jamberry Nails this year, and I have fallen in love with the product so much, that I actually signed up as a consultant to sell them as well. What is a Jamberry wrap? Jamberry nail wraps are completely different from any other nail wrap out there right now. It is an adhesive vinal that gets heated and applied to the nail (not hot enough that it burns). They last for 14+ days on fingernails and 4-6 weeks on toes!! That's just insane! Not to mention the wraps are Non-Toxic!

Jamberry wraps come in a series of styles and colors... over 300 to be exact! So there is something for everyone. They even have wraps for little fingers, called Junior wraps. They are perfectly sized for your kiddos little fingers. I love doing my daughter's nails but it always rains true that with nail polish they end up messed up before they are dry, the great thing about Jamberry nails? No dry time! So no mess!

I love all the options that they offer! And you no longer have an excuse not to do dishes (oh darn!). Jamberry nails stick with you through swimming, gardening, cleaning, even dishes! They don't fade or peel off and they won't damage your nails when removed. 

They are also perfect for nail biters. I can give an honest testimonial to this one! I was the worst nail biter ever! I used to bite my nails until they were so far down that they would hurt and burn for days! A Jamberry consultant approached me and told me that she had my solution... I laughed! I honestly thought there was nothing that would stop me from biting my nails. Since the first time I put on Jamberry nail wraps I stopped biting my nails! They were so pretty that I didn't want to. Now it has been about 7 months from the first time I used my first set of wraps and I have yet to bite my nails! In fact I have to cut them down from time to time because they are getting to long.
