Kroger (Baker’s) Deli Fried Chicken

I had the chance to try out my local Baker’s deli fried chicken for free thanks to They sent me a free coupon for a 8 piece fried chicken, 1.25 liter of Coca-Cola, and one bag of Kroger Kettle Chips.

First reaction- WAY better than KFC…. hands down. Last time I ate KFC it was so greasy and made me literally sick. This chicken wasn’t greasy at all and it was cooked all the way. The skin was nice and crunchy- very flavorful and quite delicious. It was better than what the other grocery stores in my area offered as well, priced a little better too. This would be perfect for a quick pick up dinner or lunch for a picnic.

The chips are also filled with flavor. I picked out the BBQ flavor. They are crunchy but not too hard. I personally don’t like Kettle Chips but these I would buy again. Oh and the Coca-Cola… it’s Coca-Cola. You can’t go wrong with that drink. Perfect combination! The Baker’s I went to did not have it placed by the deli but by the checkouts next to pre-packaged baked chicken. Some stores will have it right by the deli, you just have to check.

If anyone reading this knows me personally… I have coupons for $2.00 off 8-piece fried chicken and 2 1.25 coke bottles. Lemme know if you would like one so you can try their chicken out yourself.


Garnier Fructis Hydra Recharge Review.

Received free full sized bottles of Garnier Fructis Hydra Recharge Shampoo, Hydra Recharge Conditioner, Hydra Recharge 1-Minute Moisture-Plenish Treatment from to review.

First… I am switching my original shampoo and conditioner (Tresemme) to this. This stuff works wonders on my thick, frizzy, curly hair.

The shampoo has little micro beads in it which makes me feel like my hair is getting cleaner. I have no clue why I feel this way because I honestly don’t know what the beads do (I have a feeling I should know why. -shrug-). Maybe I just like the beads and I’m finding an excuse to like them. haha.
The conditioner makes my hair feel nice and silky when wet and calms down all those flyaways I get everyday when it dries.
1-Minute Moisture-Plenish treatment is quick and easy to use. I put it in before I finish washing my body or before I shave. When you’re done (which is actually usually more than a minute but oh well), just rinse it out and ta-da! amazing smooth, manageable hair. I use this every other day after shampoo and conditioner.

I always have a hard time brushing my hair after I wash it. It gets into knots like crazy… but after using this stuff, it took me about 3 minutes to brush my hair when it originally took about 15-20 before.
Also, I took this stuff to my kinda test… not washing my hair for three days. (I sometimes don’t always have time to wash my hair when I take a shower.) It passed with flying colors. My hair was still smooth, calm…. and NOT greasy. I thought I was in love.

DEFINITELY recommending to everyone and definitely buying more when I run out. Thankyou bzzagent and Garnier Fructis… the Hydra Recharge line is amazing!

Kroger Good For You Yogurt Review

I was asked to try these from I received a gift card to my local Krogers to get the flavors I wanted. To be honest, at first… I didn’t think this stuff would taste that great at all. First, my husband and I tried the cinnamon roll. Well, needless to say we’re addicted to it now. It tastes so much like an actual cinnamon roll and it’s good for you too!
The sweet tastes of these yogurts will fill your sweet craving and you won’t have to worry about it being bad for you!
Now, I constantly try to eat one a day but I always fail to keep it up, sadly. I will keep trying and these flavors will definitely help me.
My 2 year old even loves them! She goes in the fridge and grabs one out to give to me with a little smile. If she likes it… it has to be great, right? haha.
Give them a try!! I got mine at Baker’s.

Other flavors I got in my fridge:CARBmaster

Schick Hydro Campaign!

I received this free razor to try from I currently use the Venus & Olay razor.

The other night I tried it out. I forgot to shave for a couple weeks so it got kinda scary. haha. Used the free razor with no problem! I didn’t use any shaving cream and all the spots I shaved didn’t have any irritation. It came with a shower hanger…. little suction cup and so far it’s stayed up. Last time I tried to use one of those it didn’t stay up for a day.

I think I will still stay with my Venus and Olay razor, though. Definitely keep this one as a back up!

EDIT: The night after I wrote this, I came home and found the suction cup holder and the razor in my bathtub. I got too excited. Oh well, I didn’t think it would stay up that long.

My “how to” on my nails.

For the bzzagent campaign “Neutrogena Norwegian Formula® Hand Cream BzzCampaign”, I was to use the hand cream and do my manicure. Here is a video, edited by my husband Richard Drury, and pictures of my nails.





Neutrogena Norwegian Formula Hand cream review and manicure/nail polish tips.

I recently got this hand cream from to review. I have yet to do my manicure for this one (gotta do that tonight). Until I do my manicure and post pictures, I will tell you how I do my nails and what with. The cream itself makes your hands, elbows, knees, and feet (what I put it on) very soft immediately after and cures the dryness.

The only nail polish I buy now is Sinful Colors. It dries fast, doesn’t chip quickly like others I have tried, and they have LOTS of beautiful colors to choose from. I find them at Walgreens and now at Walmart. Go look at their site to see what all they have.

Now, lately when I do my nails I can’t just leave them a plain color. I have to put something over top of it like glitter or try to go fancy with a stripe or some sort of shape. When I try to go fancy… it doesn’t always go well. I don’t have the steadiest of hands so it usually comes out crooked or a blob but I try.

Tonight I am going to do my nails in the color ‘Savage’ as the base. It’s kinda a dark aqua color. On top, I’m going to put Pure Ice Spit Fire glitter. I unfortunately haven’t gotten any glitter from Sinful colors yet sooo…. have to do with some old glitter one. Will post pictures after I’m done!

Glade Expressions

I have received the Glade Expressions mist and oil diffuser for free from

The mist was the Cotton & Italian Mandarin fragrance and it smells wonderful, but only lasts a few minutes so I put it in the bathroom. It’s great for in there, not a large space. The holder is sleek and white, nothing fancy and I like it that way.

The oil diffuser was the Fuji Apple & Cardamom Spice scent and it was strong, but not overwhelming at first but lasted about 3 weeks, getting weaker everyday. Pretty good in my opinion. Smelt great and very easy to put together. No batteries and no cords! They have a wooden one and a white “plastic” looking one(the one I got). It’s very nice decor.
