NURSAL White Noise Sound Machine



   Looking for a better way to sleep at night? 

   The NURSAL White Noise Sound Machine will help you sleep and relax without hearing noise from the outside world. It has 24 different sounds to choose from, ranging from fan, white noise, and nature sounds. It has a timer and memory function for each use, so you can set it for 30, 60, or 120 minutes, or you can leave it set to run all night. The machine has two power supply options, so it can be plugged in or Battery operated. Its compact size allows it for easy travel so you can take it to a hotel with you as needed!

   I purchased this sound machine for my son, so he could sleep better at night, and not hear our loud neighbor noise. Sometimes it can get pretty loud out there, and our house is pretty quiet at night. The machine was easy to set up, I just had to provide my own plugin for the cord they supplied, as it was only a usb attachment. The machine runs well, and has multiple volume options. I do wish it had different sound options, as in lullabies or soft tunes, but the light white noise will do. It's been keeping most of the noise out, and allowing my son to get a restful night of sleep, so seems to be working well so far!! 


You can find the NURSAL Sound machine available for purchase on Amazon

Emergen-C Protein Fuel & Superfoods

Disclaimer: I received the following product(s) in exchange for my review. All opinions my own.
 

The Emergen-C Protein Fuel & Superfoods powder makes a great drink to add to my rotation of post workout drinks. I love drinking a smoothie after a good workout, especially when it has extra health benefits! I tried both the Mixed Berry flavor and the Pomegranate Mango flavor, both with water alone. I definitely liked the Pomegranate Mango better, but I found that with both drinks, the powder doesn't mix completely. I used my shaker cup for each drink, and though it's much easier than having to get a blender out, I might prefer to just use my single serve blender when it comes to mixing powders. I really like that these shakes give me 2 servings of Superfruits AND 2 servings of Superveggies! Plus 15g of protein, and it's chocked full of antioxidants and vitamins! These drinks are especially great on the go, as no blender is needed, and they will keep you full for longer. Overall, this is a great drink mix filled with all the healthy benefits!

Nacho-Style Twice Baked Potatoes



   As a member of Influencer, I joined in on the My Food and Family virtual vox box, and chose a recipe to make for my family and share it with you. I chose to make the Nacho-Style Twice Baked Potatoes, perfect for a Fall afternoon. To make these, I needed the following ingredients:

4 baking potatoes 
1/4 cup milk
1/2 cup Taco Sauce
1/2 cup Shredded Cheddar Cheese
1/2 cup crushed tortilla chips
1/2 cup JalapeƱo Cream Cheese Spread


Directions:
  • Preheat oven to 400°F. 
  • Wash the potatoes 
  • Prick them up with a fork.
  •  Bake in the oven at 400°F for 1 hour. 
  • After the hour is up, pull potatoes out and let them cool for a few. Change the oven temp to 350°F. 
  • Cut potatoes lengthwise in half; scoop out centers into medium bowl, leaving 1/8-inch-thick shells. 
  • Add cream cheese to potato flesh; beat with mixer until blended. 
  • Add milk; beat until potato mixture is light and fluffy. * I added in my own touch here. A little salsa, ranch, and seasoning (Cajun, Black Pepper, and Garlic Powder)
  • Spoon mashed potatoes into potato shells; place on baking sheet. Drizzle with taco sauce, top with cheese and crushed chips. I also sprinkled some red peppers and drizzled Japanese Kewpie Mayo across the top of ours.
  • Bake 20 to 25 min.



~ Enjoy!! ~


These were delicious and so easy to make! The crunched up Doritos on the top were the perfect addition to these baked potatoes. They added a nice texture and the taste was superb! I also added my own touch to a few things. I gave an extra kick to the potatoes by adding a little salsa, Avocado Goodness Ranch, and seasoning (Cajun, Black Pepper, and Garlic Powder) to the mix, as well as sprinkling on red peppers, and a drizzle of Japanese Kewpie Mayo. It was a perfect Fall meal!
