[ Review ] FRENCH PRESS COFFEE MAKER

So, I’ve been hearing a lot about this French Press coffee maker for months and the reviews are overwhelmingly great! Even with those reviews, I was still a little skeptical about it. Lately, I broke my coffee maker and so I needed a new one. While I was shopping for a new coffee maker I happened to see this French Press coffee maker. I was debating for probably over thirty minutes whether I should get this or get the same coffee maker that I had. Apparently, the debate on my head ended and the French Press won and I checked out.

When I got back home, I couldn’t wait, I was too eager to give it a try and so I did. You know what, the first thing I said to myself was ” girl, you should have tried this the first time you heard about it”. I continued talking to myself saying “dang, this is good!”. Anyone else can relate? Do you talk to yourself sometimes? Anyway, I’m so glad I got the French Press.

SO WHY FRENCH PRESS COFFEE MAKER?

For me, my coffee using this French Press coffee maker tastes much better compared to my old coffee maker. Paper filters in drip machines absorb much of the oil in your coffee grounds. French Press doesn’t soak up the flavor and adds tiny bits of coffee grounds in the coffee that percolates flavor and that’s why the taste is even better.

HOW LONG SHOULD FRENCH PRESS BREW?

The brewing takes only four ( 4 ) minutes. First thing, I boiled water. While the water is boiling I put coffee grounds on my French Press. Then, I slowly poured the hot water over my coffee ground inside the French Press filling to the desired level. Cover it and let it brew for four ( 4 ) minutes.

WHAT IS THE PURPOSE OF THE FRENCH PRESS?

French press retains more of the natural oils from the coffee grounds.  It allows the oil based flavors in the coffee to remain. I’m telling you now, I’m obsessed with it. This is a must have coffee maker.

During in my teenage years, I used to wear face powder a lot, but later on, I developed sinus infection and my doctor told me that using face powder won’t be good for me because of my sinus infection and allergy. When I heard about this Airspun Loose Face Powder I was a little intrigued about it, to be honest. However, based on the overwhelming good reviews on the internet about this product, I decided to purchased one at Walmart and tried it myself.

PROS:

  • This powder gives me the extra coverage I need after I apply my liquid foundation.
  • It makes my skin looks smooth.
  • It is finely milled.
  • I applied this powder under my eyes and on my chin and it looks great!

CONS:

  • The smell is overbearing. I’m allergic to fragrances so I decided to stop using this product after three weeks of using it.
  • It gives a mild flash back.
  • Powderpuff is very cheap.

Verdict:

This product is good especially for the price and it works great! The only thing I don’t like about this product is the smell. If you’re not allergic to fragrances, then the smell of this powder won’t be a problem to you.

[ REVIEW ] WET N WILD MEGAGLO MAKEUP STICKS: HIGHLIGHT & CONCEAL + SWATCHES

For quick makeup days, I would highly recommend Wet n Wild Makeup Sticks from Walmart, especially the “conceal” makeup stick. This “conceal makeup stick is my new best friend. I’ve been using this for over three months now. So far, I’m happy with the result and how it quickly conceals some red spots on my face with just a few applications. I used this “conceal” stick as my face foundation alone and eyelid primer. Adding a little blush on my cheeks and eye shadows, and I’m done. Hey, it works! For me, this stick is a must have especially for busy moms. I actually carry this in my purse all the time as well.

About the highlighter one, I have nothing negative to say. It gives my face a nice glow! It comes in ten different shades.

  1. Call Me Maple
  2. Flora Majority
  3. Follow Your Bisque ( This is “conceal” shade I am using )
  4. Hustle & Glow
  5. Nude For Thought
  6. Oak’s On You
  7. Peach Bums
  8. When The Nude Strikes ( This is the highlighter I am using )
  9. Where’s Walnut
  10. You’re A Natural

I’m really impressed how effective these sticks are, and for the price, I can’t let these two pass.

Dining At Burger King + Review

There are plenty of fast food chains in our area, and they are pretty much walking distance. One of them is Burger King. Burger King is one of my family’s go to fast food chain. My boys love to dine there. It’s like every word that comes out from their mouth is chicken strips and cheeseburger. I can’t quite understand why kids these days love fast foods. As a mom of two boys who are so picky when it comes to food, sometimes I’m so grateful that this place is so close to my place. My eldest son loves chicken strips and my youngest one loves cheeseburgers.

I don’t know how other Burger King branch cook their chicken strips, but sometimes I get disappointed the one located at cypress street. Most of the time the chicken strips are not even golden brown looking. It’s way more than golden brown ( over fried ). You know how that feels like when you’re eating it, almost feels like a rubber. Luckily, last Sunday when we were there, the chicken strips look way better. It wasn’t over fried at all. I was happy to see that.

Another thing is, this branch probably should have more than three people every shift. The staffs were very nice and friendly, but the fact that the line was getting longer and customers who ordered were still waiting for the food didn’t really look good. Really don’t wanna see customers get disappointed.
I really hope to see more of their staffs next time. Three people are not enough!
