For Water...That's Really Good! (The Soda Stream Review)

 I recently got the opporunity to review a Soda Stream. For those of you who don't know what a Soda Stream is, it's water that uses carbonation and a small cap full of soda syrup  to create your favorite drink for a lot less! There are just a few easy steps to using a Soda Stream; The first step is to fill the soda canister with cold water up to the water line. The second step is to screw the soda canister onto the soda stream. Now, on a side note, if you are just setting it up, like me, you will have to insert the CO2 canister into the back. The third step is to push the top button 3 or 4 times depending on how much carbonation you want. Then, you simply add your favoring and shake a little. You're then left with a yummy drink! What are some of the things I loved about the soda stream you might ask? I love the fact that there is a storage area in the back of the soda stream to house an extra soda cansiter. I also loved the fact that it only requires a small cap full of syrup for such a large quantity of water. (Did you know one 500 ml of sodamix is equal to 33 12oz cans of soda?!) Another thing I found out about the Soda Stream is that there are over 30 different flavors to choose from, so you're bound to find something you like! Soda Stream is also good for the planet. No more plastic bottles of soda lying around, just waiting to go to a landfill.  Lastly, I want to point out that if you're counting calories, the sodamix is made with Splenda! 
There isn't much I could find wrong with the Soda Stream! If anything, I would warn users to be a little careful when adding the sodamix syrup to the carbonated water. Unfortunately for me, I didn't read the directions all the way through and didn't pour the sodamix slowly, so the bottle overflowed a little. I also would mention that the soda canister isn't dishwasher safe, so you have to wash those by hand. Overall, this was definately an amazing product! I would recommend it to anyone who asked and I wouldn't be surprised that when I run out of CO2 I'll be sending it back for a refill! For more information, just go to Soda Stream and check out all the cool products they have! *This is my own personal view. I was given the soda stream for my review.

Alex and Ani Zodiac Capricorn Bracelet

Hello Everybody!

I wanted to write a little review of an Alex and Ani bracelet I won from Crazy House Blog. First of all, it is so beautiful! At first I was a little skeptical because I'm not much into zodiac signs, but once I got the bracelet I decided this was perfect for me! Secondly, it is just the right fit! It is just big enough to get on my wrist without leaving any marks and then stays in place. I didn't have to worry about it falling off. Lastly, it is a great accessory for almost anything! I wore it to work today, and I'll probably wear it tomorrow too!
 It has so far, been one of the best things I've won from a blog. Here's a picture of what it looked like:

Like I said, so beautiful!
