Electrician Service

Update: Still loving our nutri-bullet and using it every day!

So on to my next review. This review is more service oriented instead of product related.  My sweet, yet completely clueless mother had this crazy stuff going on in her house. I’m English. I don’t like ghosts. I’m the minority in England when it comes to paranormal love. Anyhow, she had this crazy electrical stuff going on and I told her she needed an electrician asap since I was suspicious of ghosts.  So she rolled her eyes and called a local electrician who called himself a “master”. I guess that means he know his stuff.

We gave him a long to-do list. She basically had a stairway light that would turn on whenever it damn well pleased….off too.  So it wouldn’t turn off and it wouldn’t turn on via the switch…only of it’s own accord. Also, we had a light in the dining room on a dimmer that no matter what you did with the switch…would stay on.  Then she had some outlets in her bedroom that would shut off completely if you turned on a hair blower.  She had been going outside to the breaker box every time she needed to dry her hair.  She also had a fan that was on some kind of multi-switch and the light worked but the fan wouldn’t. Lastly, she had so many switches that made fizzing sounds.  It was scary!  It’s a good thing I moved in with her when I did or her house could have burned down completely. Have you ever seen an electrical list so long? Her house isn’t even that old!  So this electrician comes out and he’s really nice and has this strong southern accent (we basically could barely understand each other), and he set about to fix all of the things on our list.  I think he actually fixed every single item and even had to replace the fan and the stairway light.  It’s a good thing he did the stairway light because there’s no way on this earth I could have ever done it.  How in the world is someone expected to change a light bulb two stories up over a stairway?  He did a great job though, which is why I’m reviewing for him. Lexington Electrician Service was top notch. So if anyone of my readers ever resides in the South Carolina area, you can look them right on up.

Hoping that from here on out we can avoid any more costly home repairs!


Magic Bullet by NutriBullet

I’m in the states!! Just thought you’d like to know.  It’s beautiful here and much more hot 🙂  If you’re lost right now, click here.

Now that I’ve got that out of the way, I’ll share my next review with you.  I’m reviewing my mother’s Magic Bullet by NutriBullet.  It’s the 600 watt version.  These are a mixture of my thoughts AND hers.


My thoughts: I LOVE this appliance.

Her thoughts: I LOVE this appliance.

Five stars from both of us.  She uses it every day and now I do too.  What a great day to get veggies and fruits in!  I like to add protein powder to mine and she adds in some kind of aging women’s vitamins.  Anyway, works great to get you healthy on the go!  Prep time on this is super fast and clean up is practically zilch!  I rinse out the cup and the blade and set them upside down for the next use. Now, flax seeds are hard to rinse out so unless you really really love flax, don’t go there.  I used to have a blender and it was such a pain to clean – this is a dream.  It pulverizes seeds like you wouldn’t believe…coffee beans – no problem!

The power on this thing is great.  My mother has had it for a year already and it’s still going strong.  Carrots, apples, seeds, ice…it all comes out smooth as soup with no problem!  It’s also so compact, it barely takes any space on the counter top at all!

These shakes keep you satisfied for hours and they also keep you “regular” if you know what I mean.

The cups come in large and small and honestly, we only use the large.  Wish they would give you more of those.  My mother actually just ordered the colossal size.  She also ordered another blade. The blades seem to dull after about 5-6 months of use but they’re not that expensive to replace so it’s not something she minds doing.

I’ve started using this every day now. My favorite combinations are bananas, peanut butter and chocolate protein powder.  Mango, pineapple and avocado is great too.  Avocado will make anything much thicker so use it sparingly!  Spinach in almost everything works well.  The spinach greens it up but you can’t taste it. My mother put kale in hers the other day and I thought it was terrible.  Too bitter.

If you want to try a cleanse, this would be perfect.  I’ve already lost quite a bit of weight and feel much healthier.

I recommend anyone to try this!
