30 Days of Free Movies

I have Netflix and this service. But, I usually end up going to Amazon for streaming movies. They always seem to have the ones that I’m looking for (either through Prime or for a small fee) and the service is fantastic. One time, I had a little trouble viewing a movie (I think it was even my fault) and without a word from me, they sent me an email saying they noticed that I had trouble streaming the movie and refunded my money for the movie! Now that’s fantastic customer service! (*Note: if you get Amazon Prime above, it already includes this feature in the trial) Try Amazon Prime Instant Video 30-Day Free Trial

Highlights

  • Huge Selection
  • Great Customer Service
  • Easy to Use

My Favorite Cool Finds


This is where you can find my absolute favorite things that I tell my friends about all the time.  Now I can just send them here and quit repeating myself!  And now so can you… You’re welcome  :)

Wine Aerator

I take this wine aerator everywhere I go. I keep one at home, and one in the car in case I end up dining out, and I even keep one in my suitcase! I also keep an extra one or two to give as gifts. I have found that it is the perfect gift for the friend who has everything… except this! And, I usually end up giving them to friends along the way who love them. So I have learned to keep some extras on hand so I am never without it.

Spiralizer

Love, love, love my spiralizer!  Now that I’m not eating wheat products and living a healthy lifestyle, this is the perfect solution to a quick zucchini pasta dish where the pasta IS the zucchini!  It’s even great as a raw dish and you still get the pasta experience! And it doesn’t end there. You can make a bunch of healthy alternatives to old favorites and keep your taste buds and your body happy. :) In fact, I liked it so much I brought one all the way to Italy to give to my raw vegan friend there.  Of course, she loved it too!

Magnetic Tripod

You’d better get a few of these too! I give these away like crazy. This is an incredibly small, incredibly light, and incredibly magnetic tripod. It’s only about the size of your fist. ( If you’re using it with your phone, you’ll need to get a mount for it as well.)

NutriBullet Blender

I started using the Magic Bullet 8 years ago when I needed a great blender to make my Isagenix shakes nice and smooth in.  A few years ago, I upgraded to the first NutriBullet that came out on the market and it was even better.  Now, in comes the NutriBullet Rx.  I don’t have it yet, but when I get back to the States, I’m gonna get me one.  Great for shakes and smoothies and now even soups and things!  Tons of cool new and improved features that I can’t wait to try.

Cool Websites and Apps…


Here are some of my favorite websites and apps that I have found to be uniquely useful.   I have an android device, but I’m guessing that most things these days have both app versions and a universal website.  I’ll be adding many more as I think of them.

Buycott.com

Buycott is a free app that makes it possible for you to vote with your dollars. Without it, it’s nearly impossible to make informed everyday buying decisions. Especially at the grocery store. But with this handy app you can put in your own personal preferences about campaigns that you support and companies that you are boycotting simply by scanning the product.

It’s pretty amazing really. And at first, a little frightening to find out how much you’ve been tricked into supporting companies that you thought you were boycotting! It’s a little daunting at first, but since you usually buy the same basic things over and over again, once you figure out what is safe to purchase, you can just stay away from the others and it becomes normal shopping again. But this time, you have a much better idea of what you’re really buying. This app is a game changer when it comes to being an informed consumer.

Pokeit.co

For my Jersey peeps, it’s legal  to “shuffle up and deal” online again.  Yay! I think there are a few other states as well, and of course, a good deal of the rest of the world!  So, I’m trying to get my Texas Hold-em grinder skills back up and came across this cool new service at Pokeit.co.  It’s not as robust as some of the other programs that are out there.  But, it’s cloud based, which means it doesn’t bog down your computer, gives you more playing flexibility and access to your stats, and has a very nice user interface as well.  You can even easily tweet your bad beat or hero call :)  You can try it for free up to 10,000 hands and then above that, there is a monthly fee.  But if it’s making you money, you can just use some of your winnings to cover it!

I’ve been trying to learn Italian for quite some time now.  Rosetta Stone, Pimsleur, yeah, they’re pretty good.  But in my opinion, this is the best one overall.  Not only is it the most fun, but it’s FREE!  Plus, there’s a huge online community to interact with and ask questions.  And, it’s a website and an app.  After you sign up, come follow me and we can help inspire each other to keep working at it!  Enjoy :)
