1. HP Envy Touchsmart 14T Ultrabook
I was in desperate need of a new laptop since blogging with lots of images tends to slow down my PC. Many folks suggested a MAC, and I did test it out for about 2 weeks, however since a MAC isn’t compatible with some Windows apps and I am a PC girl at heart, I had to go with a PC. What I really wanted was a MAC look alike, and I found this HP Envy at Costco. A beautiful machine that looks just like the MAC, and it’s powerful and fast too, not to mention, touchscreen.
Although I was iffy about purchasing the Windows 8 Operating System due to its bad reviews, in the upgraded Windows 8.1 you can customize the settings so it looks just like WIndows 7. The features are pretty cool. I absolutely LOVE my new machine and it was my Christmas gift from me to me! Yeah, gotta spoil myself once in a while. Here are the specs I purchased – Windows 8.1 OS, Intel i5, 500 GB Hard Drive, 8 GB Memory, 14” screen. Build a custom laptop at Costco or Amazon.
2. Orgins A Perfect World SPF 25
When winter arrives, my skin gets crazy dry. This season I’m trying Origins Perfect World moisturizer with SPF 25. This thick antioxidant moisturizer is formulated without parabens, mineral oil, and animal ingredients, additionally it contains White Tea, UVA/UVB, and delays the appearance of premature aging. So far, my skin has been soft, supple, and smooth, plus no breakouts since I am prone to an occasional pimple here and there. Perfect for the winter and has a citrusy smell. ~ $41 @ Sephora
3. Trader Joe’s Reduced Guilt Chunky Guacamole
Love guac? Try this… guacamole mixed up with Greek yogurt, so good, and you don’t have to worry about the avocado browning. TJ’s version tastes like the real thing with less fat since it is made with Greek yogurt. So creamy and delicious. So far, I’ve paired my reduced guilt guac with TJ’s Rosemary Italian Style Crackers and Tortilla Chips. ~ $3.50 @ Trader Joe’s
TELL ME: Are you a MAC or PC lover? If you are a blogger, what software do you use for blogging? Have you tried Greek Yogurt Guacamole?
