I love Snow Drift Vanilla Porter. It's smooth and flavorful and compares. Leinenkugal's offers a great vanilla porter at an affordable price. I would buy this one over some of the more pricey brewery options not only because of cost ut because it tastes good. Sometimes I can't drink more than one of these types of flavors but snowdrift is one I can drink a lot of.
I don't drink energy drinks, except for the Monster Energy Zero Ultra white can. It's the only one that I actually enjoy every drop of. It's delicious and I'm easily addicted to the flavor. The energy does work, too, but I drink half for energy and half for the flavor - it's that good. I highly reccommend.
I. love. Halo Top! My husband and I joked that we were better off eating ice cream instead of our protein bar the other day because the macros and nutrient listing on the Halo Top was better than that of the protein bars we purchase. My favorite flavor is the choc chip cookie dough - it's a classic. It's sweet and great cookie dough ball flavor - but not overboard on either.
I've used Turbo Tax since I was about 18 years old and doing my own taxes. Every year the service becomes easier and easier to use. Turbo Tax has explanations for all of their questions and answer options so you can research more if you're not sure where your answer might fall. They walk you step-by-step through each phase and you can complete all - city, state, federal - from the same platform. I've always used Turbo Tax and will plan to continue to do so. I also love that they can now text you as your tax submission continues through the approval process, so you're up to date in real time.
I'm typically not a fan of glittery nail polish but I did find a fun way to incorporate it into my polish style. It layers well, so I layered all over the nail for layer 1, then layers 2-4 I only went half way to 1/4 way from my cuticle and it looks like it fades. The colors are really fun!
I just started using this and I really like it so far. It seems to be working but mostly I love the feeling the creaminess it leaves around my eyes.
Update 9/2017: I still really like this product. Use it most mornings, although starting to run out so I'll likely buy. I feel like my undereyes look a little fresher, maybe not as puffy, but I look awake several minutes after applying.
Wow! This lipstick lasts. I was really surprised how long this lasted because so many of the "long lasting" lipsticks I've tried begin to come off within a few hours and typically don't even last until lunch. I'm one who does not like to reapply because I'm typically running from meeting to meeting. I applied this lipstick at 9 a.m. and it didn't come off until i removed it at 5:30 p.m. so I approve! For long wear lip color, I usually stick with Senegence Lipsense, but this is a close comparison, or cheaper option. It does seem a little sticky the first hour or so and I don't recommend rubbing lips together. It tends to stay moisturizing for most of the day, which I appreciated. I would recommend and will likely buy in a few more colors.
I typically find charcoal products work well, and the Tree Hut mask definitely cleaned out my pores. I could tell especially having not done a mask or exfoliator recently. My only complaint is that it's not as friendly for sensitive skin. My skin is sensitive and I could see the redness after using. That being said, with sensitive skin, this is likely to happen with most products. I'll continue to use, but probably not weekly, more like every two weeks.
