The Valentine's Day Blogmopolitan Quiz

I'm linking up with two third's hazel's blog (see the post HERE) for The Valentine's Day Blogmopolitan Quiz.

Just a disclaimer - I'm single and have been quite single for the majority of my adult life so I'm sure my quiz reflects that.  Hope that changes soon! :)

French Press Coffee Giveaway


This event is coordinated by Lisa at The Consumer Adviser



In a world where convenience is a necessity, we often lose sight of  quality.  This is seen quite pervasively with the the single serve coffee machines.  Y'all know those k-cups are everywhere.  But, do they really deliver a good cup of coffee?  My opinion is no.  I was given one of those single serve coffee makers.  I gave it a shot and experimented with a wide variety of k-cups. In the end, I was disappointed.  I felt it was an outrageous cost for such a low quality product.  To me, k-cups are on par with instant coffee.  I know I'm not alone in my opinion, that's why I wanted to do a feature on what coffee connoisseurs consider to be the best process for producing a great cup of coffee.

Introducing the French Press

Bodum French Press



The French Press not only looks good, it effortlessly delivers a quality cup of coffee.


The Bodum French Press consistently receives high ratings and I recently had the opportunity to review this amazing little wonder device.  Read my full review here.  It's an easy process that delivers a really great cup of coffee and has even proven to be more cost-effective.

Botox To Help With Teeth Grinding?

So last week I had my first root canal.  Not cool!  I'm only 37!!!  I take care of my teeth like crazy because I spent $4,000 myself getting braces back in my 20s.  I don't want to waste that $4,000 by having all my teeth fall out.  So I have taken care of them since.  But here's my first disclaimer....I have bad teeth genes.  My mom has had tons of root canals and cracked teeth and bridges etc.  So I guess I knew this was coming.  Second disclaimer...contrary to MY popular belief...root canals don't necessarily mean you have bad dental habits or don't brush your teeth or don't floss ALL.THE.DANG.TIME.  (Can you tell I'm SO tired of flossing?)  It just means something happened...like in my case.

Apparently, tooth grinding can cause a root/nerve to die.  I guess a lot of pressure on a tooth causes it to die.  How did I find out my root died?  I had recently moved to Florida and found a new dentist to go to here.  He did a panoramic xray which showed a dark area underneath my lower canine tooth.  Turns out it was an abscess (infection) and a big one at that.  Bigger than he normally sees!  *Embarrassed*  So I'm flipping out because I normally have a 'no cavaties'...send me on my way...kind of dentist appointment.  So he decides to take this qtip...and put something cold on it...and proceeded to put that on my gum underneath the opposite canine - PAIN!!!!!  Super duper painful!  So then he puts it on the 'bad' canine gum...and I feel nothing.  He said he was checking to see if the root was dead or not.  Obviously it was dead since I felt nothing.  He then said nonchalantly if I had pain, the infection (abscess) would have been cancer instead.  Well...I guess it could have been that.  So instead he informs me I need a root canal and a crown (the infection only goes away if you get a root canal).  Oh lovely - so now I get a drill down my tooth....then they get to shave my tooth down...and then put on a fake tooth (the crown).  Oh joy. 

They put on a temporary crown until the real crown comes in (on the 25th).  They didn't have a light enough crown so it is actually really yellow although you can't really tell when I smile.

See?  (Disclaimer number 3...there is an instagram filter on the pic haha so yeah maybe that makes the yellow go away lol.)


That picture was taken today for #GoRedSelfie day by the way.  Raising awareness to Heart and Stroke health.  My mom had a stroke probably about 6 years ago.  My Great-Grandma and Grandma had strokes as well.  My Great-Grandma was basically a vegetable from what I remember after her stroke which is sad.  My Grandma just died instantly from it.  Thankfully, my mom survived and with little damage.  She's on medication now I believe so hopefully we can keep that under control.  But so...I can expect a stroke in my future, it seems.  Although, I'm trying to combat it with my diet but...with my stress...it might be inevitable.  Anyways, sorry didn't mean to be doom or gloom.  Just want to raise awareness to keep going to the doctor and keep track of the tests they run.  All mine are perfect for now.

Anyways, so to get to the point of this whole blog post...I was reading Men's Journal today (yes, I know it is for men but it is an AWESOME magazine...truly...I learn a lot) and found this short blip about botox and teeth grinding:



I never thought of something like that!  I tried to get a mouth guard last year but I felt like I was allergic to it (the dentist thought I was nuts).  I got severe pain in my throat after just 30 minutes of sleeping with it in.  Might be due to my mouth being open while sleeping and the dry air?  Or maybe I'm truly allergic.  Regardless, I don't wear it.  I do try to wear my retainer every other day.  That helps for sure.  But the pressure on my teeth is still there.  Which causes the root to die!  I may not grind my teeth down (because of the retainer) but the pressure is still real.  Maybe if I do this botox...it will help to avoid future root canals?  I will ask my dentist on the 11th (I go in for a cleaning).  I'm sure he'll look at me like I'm a nutcase, but it can't hurt to ask?

So readers, have any of you gotten this procedure done?

(BTW - if I'm going in for botox in my jaw - I might as well get some botox in my forehead and my frown lines as well, right? lol)

January 2015 Instas

Just thought I'd share with you guys my January 2015 Instagram pics.

This was January 1st at midnight.  I took a picture of my blinking glass I got from the Bubba Gump restaurant.  I think it had Asti in it.


Ponce Lighthouse - TERRIFYING for me to go up it.




Funny pic I reposted.


This stuff is awesome if you want your hair to get thicker.  Although I must say it does tangle my hair a lot (I have naturally curly naturally tangly hair anyways haha).  So beware of that.  I still use it though to get thicker hair.


I actually went on a run with my friend Kelly outside her apartment complex (down a country road mostly).  We did real well and I think we ran 3.42 miles or something like that.  And I hadn't ran or did any kind of work out since probably September.  Running is just in my blood now I guess so I can go knockout 3 miles and its no big deal.


I have these new Angel Answers cards that I use every once and a while.  I've been told by several 'intuitives' or 'psychics' that basically this year I'm going to meet 'The One' so to speak...one even said something about February.  SO of course I asked the cards when I'm going to meet this guy...and this is what I got...so that is exciting...hope the cards are right! 


This is my new bible.  It is really nice.  It is a study bible so it has explanations for everything in the bible basically.  Although a lot of it is still over my head.  Guess that is what I get for not having any religious influence in my life for 37 years.  Probably will take me a while to catch up to my peers.


A selfie of me in the dressing room.  That is actually an old coat but it is still super cute.


My $300 haul from Target.  A whole lotta nothing!


We had some nice weather for a few days.  I guess January is normally 50s/60s here.  I'm over that.  I'm ready for the 80s for sure. haha!  Beach weather!!


A makeup win from a blog called Rebecca Lately.  She totally rocks!


My attempt to cook steaks.  Take a cast iron skillet...sear each side of the steak in oil or lard (till its brown or charred - whatever you like)...


And then stick it in the oven.  I was told 250 for like 20 minutes and that was good.  Although, I was told I could do it for 350/400 for 5 minutes...and it would be hotter.  So I might try that next time and see how that works out.  Whatever you do, make sure you don't forget to use a pot holder at all times!  I had taken the pan out and FORGOT it had been in the oven...and grabbed the handle with my bare hand.  Um yeah...not good.
