Review on Spring Waterbottle

I bought a $90 water bottle ... Well actually I didn't it was a gift. But I'm now an owner of a $90 water bottle. Ridiculous I know but here's why it tracks your water intake and reminds you throughout the day to drink water. 

Henry is convinced that before this water bottle I was chronically dehydrated and he's probably right.  I would drink coffee but actual glasses of water were maybe 2 a day if that. But I am really trying to help out my fitness and overall health.  And if you've seen one article about the importance of drinking water you've seen 10.  I know it helps your skin, your weight, metabolism, ability to flush out toxins, and more. 

I was trying to drink more tea and get my water intake there,  but I really wasn't motivated so I thought this purchase was worth it. 

There is the Hidrate Spark out there which I think is more common and less expensive.  The main difference is the bottle lights up when you should be drinking more water.  Here is why I didn't buy that one:

1. I've heard of some people turning off the light because it was annoying and almost embarrassing in a public space (which sorta defeats the purpose).

2.  I saw bad reviews of shipping.  Those types of reviews always makes me a little skittish. 

3. It was plastic.  If I spending a lot of money on a bottle I want it with nice quality. 

I also just liked the design of the Spring a lot better and thought that it wouldn't be super noticeable that I bought this really expensive bottle to help me drink more water. One thing I like about the Hidrate a little better is that it syncs with your Fitbit App.

So is it worth it?

  • I drink way more water than I use to
  • I lost water weight
  • I find myself recognizing thirst rather than thinking I'm hungry
  • I'm eating less because I'm getting full with water
  • Im making an effort to drink more without noticing
  • The app helps me and has really cute motivational texts

Due to all that I do think its worth it.  It's a really nice product that works well and helps me in my fitness goals.  I think I needed something like this thats a visiual to really help me make a change. Here is the link to the product.

January Fitness Haul

Hopefully you all are sticking to your new years resolutions so far! The end of 2017 was crazy for us with all the traveling so I knew that as soon as January came around I would want to hit the ground running with my fitness regimen.  Of course I want to get in shape for the wedding but I also just want to feel good in my skin and healthy. So I used Digit, and set a goal of saving $500 by the end of the year to buy all my fitness needs!

REMEMBER WHEN SHOPPING: Use Ebates for cash back and coupons! Honey is a great back up when Ebates doesn't work on the site.

So today I'm sharing with you what worked and what didn't so you could check it out! PS I bought some of Tone It Up's new line so you can see the review here! 

Yoga Mat *Returned* - this mat was 3mm and even though it was cute that is way too thin for what I was looking for.  But it's good to know because now I know that Im looking for either a 5mm or 6mm mat.  This is the back up that I purchased! 

Sports Bra  - These are my favorite bras from Target, I love the style of them, they fit really well and keep everything in place.  Im not a big fan of padding in my sports bra (I dont need it) so these are perfect!

Lulu- Lemon Pants - This was one of my big splurges.  I loved the color and I knew these pants would be worth it because tehy would hold up for a long time. Although I thought the 7/8 would fit me nicely with being petite and they are far too long. To be honest the tag ripped off when I was trying them on so Im just going to keep them! 

Nikes *Returned* - I just didnt really like the color when it came in, thats all haha.

Still deciding on these Nikes - http://shopstyle.it/l/t67Y

Tone it Up Review

Guys I tried out some of the products from the Tone it Up line, and Im sad to report, I didn't like the products.  Their line is very inexpensive but it shows and I was suppose bummed out about it. 

Jump Rope *Returned* - This jump was the worst, it broke several times while I was trying to use it.  And I kept screwing the piece back on but I knew it would never fully stay so I returned it.

Dumbbells- I kept the dumbbells but you can see the seam and it seems like they may easily split.  But I liked the color and the texture of it so I thought it would be worth it.

2nd Jump Rope - This is the back up I purchased, not as pretty but it works and I guess thats all that really matters

Shoe wise I got these asics because I get shin splits very easily and I know this brand is great for support.  but I have been so hesitant because I hated the colors usually.  So when I saw these colors I grabbed them as quick as I could! They are so comfy! Originally I was thinking about getting a running shoe and another shoe for more cross training and doing weights so I am still deciding on these Nikes.  What so you think!?

TOPS

I was thinking about going to althetica or Lulu Lemon for some shirts but they just seemed so overpriced and I like some of my items from Old Navy so I just looked there I loved what I saw.  I love the Long sleeves, especially with the open back for some breathing.  These Plain Tanks are super cute and I love the material they are made from.  Also they have the cutest Graphic Tank, for a reasonable price. 

More Returns

I tried out these long sleeves from Target, but they had too much of a boat neck and showed my bra straps and not in a flattering way I thought so I returned them.  I also tried tried out these sports bras but they are more like cloth material and don't give enough support I think. 

PS HAS ANYONE TRIED THE HIDRATE SPARK BOTTLE? Im VERY interested in this bottle and if it actually helps you drink more water or if it is annoying and not worth the money.  Just need a review some one help a girl out ha!

You'll never believe it but I haven't hit my $500 limit yet.  So is there something you'd recommend? I'd love to know!!

Reviews on Christmas Presents

So I know that Christmas was almost a month ago but I thought it might be fun for me to share with you some of the items I got and if I liked them or returned them! I had a random assortment thats for sure haha!

REMEMBER WHEN SHOPPING: Use Ebates for cash back and coupons! Honey is a great back up when Ebates doesn't work on the site.

Alarm Clock - Have you heard about these sunrise alarm clock.  The deal is they are suppose to turn on about 30 minutes before you get up and get brighter until the time you get up, stimulating a sunrise.  I thought this would be perfect for the winter months and trying to get my lazy butt out of bed for early morning work outs.  But this clock just got bright at 30 minutes before, I honestly saw no gradual change and it just shined bright in my face 30 minutes before it needed to.  Also it felt impossible to work and took up so much space it just didn't feel worth it. 

Day Designer - I LOVE LOVE LOVE this planner and I loved how list focused it was, but Im an idiot because it goes from august- may I believe, and follows the school year.  So I already couldn't use half of it. So it got returned sadly. 

Computer Bag - I wanted this computer bag from the Hearth & Home collection but sadly it was for people with laptops that are 15" which mine is not.  Although Im not sure at the end of the day if I would have loved the material. 

Amelia's Mug - When we went to Nashville one of the top things I wanted to check out was Amelia's Flower Truck.  She has these old trucks that drive around to different places and you can buy flowers.  You can make your own bouquet or they can make it for you.  I had them make it since they know what they are doing and I loved it! So Henry bought me this mug to remember our fun time there! 

Phone Case - Casetify is my go to for phone cases, they have more designs than you could possibly imagine and they 

Wireless Charger - I got the iPhone 8 and Henry has this wireless charger, its a game changer.  Make life so easy and I can put my cords other places.  I highly recommend if you have a phone that can wirelessly charge! 

Love you Melon - Infinity Scarf and Headband.  Love your melon is awesome because they give back some of their profits to cancer patients and its just an awesome cause! I love their products they are well made but I will have to say they aren't the warmest thing I have.  For sure fashionable and for that reason I gravitate towards them.  But on really cold days, I need something else. 

KL nail polish bundle review

KL Polish had these really great bundles for an awesome price that was a stocking stuffer, sadly is didnt make the cut on my lists and I wanted to purchase them later for myself but they seem to have been taken off the site for some reason.  

So lets hope that she puts them back on sometime soon! 

I did a review on some of her nail polishes here that you can check out! 

Below are some of the other products I got and just loved! 

Tell me, is there something you got and either LOVED or HATED?!
