I received some single serving packets of Vanilla and Chai Naturade, Vegan Smart, All-In-One Nutritional Shakes from Naturade for free! Initially I mixed these in plain water and wasn’t very fond of the flavor. It wasn’t awful, drinkable but it didn’t taste good. Then I tried mixing it with apple juice and banana and tasted a million times better! I found while I was drinking these I felt a little better energy wise during the day. I wasn’t as hungry either. The vanilla was my favorite of the two. Now that I’ve been out of these for awhile I miss them. When I have funds again I’ll be picking up the vanilla since it’s so much more versatile! I don’t have a lot of experience with protein or meal replacement shakes, so I can’t compare these to other drinks, but these are great! I also had no stomach issues drinking these. If you know me, then you know I have lots of stomach issues.

Summary

Pros
Gives energy

Chai tastes strange

Final thoughts
While the Chai tastes funky, the vanilla is nice. The formula is good and definitely does what it's meant to do. It's very healthy.

Buy or not
I definitely want to pick up the vanilla when I have funds!

Life. How does it work?

Life Post, Sick

||||| Like It 1 Like it! |||||

ALL THE SICK! Ugh. Still not doing well from the cortisone shots. My heart is not happy and my bloodsugar has sky-rocketed. I also found out I have a UTI. So much fun. I had lots of posts planned but I have been out of commission. My chest was settled down a bit today, so that’s good. Fumiko has been home sick with an awful sore throat and fevers. I’m not sure if my fevers have been from the UTI or if I’m getting what Fumiko has.

Sick

So I have been watching Orange is the New Black. So far I like it a lot. It’s funny. Hopefully tomorrow I can do some swatches or at least get a review up.

Monthly Post Recap: August 2014

||||| Like It 1 Like it! |||||

This last couple of weeks has kicked my butt. I’ve been sick off and on and dealing with some bad migraines, then Friday when I went in to see my doctor she gave me some cortisone shots in my lower back and hips. I also got a shot in my butt cheek to numb things. When that wore off I had the most god awful stomach pain. I also developed this hot red rash on both of my arms which is gone now and my stomach is finally eased up today. I’m really glad because the shots have eased the pain in my hips and pelvic region. I have to contact the ENT I saw a few months back for a biopsy to see if I have temporal arteritis. Anyways. Last months posts, Go!

I have some more indie shop pages up! Besides cosmetics I have bath & body and perfume up. I have a lot more shops to be added, but it’s a start! If you know of a shop that should be added feel free to leave me a comment! Alternately, if you find a broken link or a boo boo please let me know. :)

Thursday Guest Post

Dreadful’s Mani of the Day: Always..

||||| Like It 1 Like it! |||||

*Purchased*

Hello lovelies!

It is Dreadfully Divine doing another guest posting for Luna today!  I wanted to do a mani post for Luna’s blog since not only am I obsessed with indie makeup I have been bitten by the indie polish bug.

hpscream
OMG Polish? WHERE?

My oldest is reading Harry Potter series and we are having a wonderful time going back and rereading the series together with him.  While he hasn’t gotten to the last book yet, I will have to admit that it is my favorite.  It wasn’t until then did we learn the full story of Severus Snape’s history.

funny-Snape-Harry-Potter-guilt1
#truth

**SPOILER ALERT** In case you haven’t read the books or seen the movies just skip ahead to the polish photos and ohh and ahh over them. Then IMMEDIATELY go read the books THEN watch the movies cause we can’t have you living under a rock any more. ^_~ ***

It was then you learned that Lily was Severus’ one and only true love and that he still loved her after all these years. always1

His heartbreak when she died….

always2

Everything that Snape did to Harry was to keep him safe for Lily.

always5

I don’t care who you are, there is some serious feels and tears. Because no matter what happened even after she married James he always loved her.

always3
Yup I cried like a baby at this part and you did too…

This word, always, now forever reminds me of Snape’s love for Lily and when I discovered that Lucky 13 Lacquers created a polish that embodies all the feels that this word triggers I had to add it to my collection.  Now I have seen lots of Harry Potter collections both makeup and polish, however I think that Lucky 13 got Always simply perfect! Just take a look…

l13always1

l13always3

l13always2

Always is a sheer silver topcoat magically packed full of aqua microflakes that glow bright blue in the dark. Yup, you read that right they glow bright blue like the Patronus . So since it is a naturally sheer topcoat you will need undies to get the look that I have ( I used Sinful color’s What’s Your Name   )or you can rock the top coat all during the day without anyone knowing you have glowing Patronus nails until night.

always4

While sadly, I didn’t capture any decent glow in the dark photos for you,  when you check out the polish on the main site you can see a glow in the dark shot.  You can purchase Always from Lucky 13 Lacquer’s main site for $8.50 You can also check out their Facebook page and their Facebook Fan Group. I hope that you enjoyed this post and if you liked this post please be sure to check out my blog! Thanks to Luna for hosting and until next time lovelies!
