Amazon Prime Update

So...


You remember when I said I'd update y'all on what its like to finally be PAYING for Amazon Prime and if I thought it was worth it.


Child well look, lemme tell you.


I may as well get on first name basis with the delivery drivers at this point because

THEY WON!!


I don't know what it is about once you pay for something; all of a sudden there is an instant need to make sure you're getting your moneys worth.


In this instance its kind of like; I’m spending a few dollars just to spend a couple hundred on top of it every month.


But that's my business I suppose.

The things we do for next day delivery and and little music streaming...


 

As promised, I am going to be reviewing the 3 items I linked in the last Amazon post.


In case you missed what those items were, no worries, I got you covered.



Up first is the Cirago Juicer:


CIRAGO Juicer Machines, Slow Masticating Juicer Extractor Two Speed Adjustment, Easy to Clean, Quiet Motor, Cold Press Juicer for Vegetables and Fruits, BPA-Free (Green)


Price: $106 before $20 discount


Appearance:


The color is not so spectacular (apple green) but who cares; as long as it works.


* I didn't buy it for aesthetics - it was not meant to match my kitchen décor for the spring*


I did alot of research on different types of juicers before settling on this one;


I needed something that was strong enough to get the juices out of hard fruits/veggies but wasn't going to leave me feeling like there was more juice to be squeezed out.


Gimme all the nutrients.


Setup:


Set up is super easy.


There are direction inside the box so if you need them PLEASE use them.


I am, however, a picture person so looking at the box and one of the diagrams was enough for me to get it put together on the first try. #thechampishere


Once it was all locked into place I took a step back and admired my work.


It is a beauty.


In all the excitement - I got right to juicing.


(I cleaned it as I took each part out.)


I made an apple juice, a cucumber juice and a carrot juice.


The apple juice was best - two green and 1 red.




Up next are the glass jars:


Chef's Star 18 Oz Glass Water Bottles, Glass Drinking Bottle with Protection Sleeve, Juice Bottles with Stainless Steel Leak Proof Lids, Pack of 12


Price: $29.67 (after taxes)


Did you go look at them?


Aren't they pretty!?


Appearance:


The glass jars are stunning.


Super thick, nice quality.


I love the sleeves they came in; very convenient.


When I first opened them I cleaned them with baking soda and vinegar.


They come with a bottle cleaning brush so that's cool.


Nitty Gritty:


I want so badly to recommend them to you guys...


They are so nice appearance and quality wise.


I just cant in good faith and here's why.


5 out of 12 jars came without the rubber piece that secures the lid at its base so 3 jars have already shattered.


When I noticed it was a repeat problem, I inspected each glass and left a review stating my findings.


I didn't get a response from the seller.


Honestly, I left it alone after that.


I did not reach out to the company further.


Man, I want to say run out and buy them...


Hell, I want to buy some more and hope for the best.


I love the jars, I do.


I'd just love them more if all the parts came with them and I didn't lose 3 bottles in the first 2 weeks.


But what are you gonna do!?



Lastly, Bottled Joy:


BOTTLED JOY 1 Gallon Water Bottle, BPA Free Large Water Bottle Hydration with Motivational Time Marker Reminder Leak-Proof Drinking Big Water Jug for Camping Sports Workouts and Outdoor Activity


Price: 21.19 (after taxes)


I absolutely love this water bottle.


When I say WORTH. EVERY. PENNY.


When I was doing #75Hard I had to drink a gallon a day.


Everywhere I went I just kept seeing this bottle.


At some point I fell in love with the idea of having it myself.


Since finishing the program last year I have not kept up with my gallon a day.

(honestly my body doesn't need that much water)


Anyways, I still wanted to get it as a way to encourage myself to at least get back to drinking water more frequently.


Even now, I need to be more consistent.
