Scared of Tap Water & the Effects of BPA? Refresh Naturally w/ Premium Icebox Water

In our attempt to drink more water (women should drink 9 cups a day while men should average 13 cups a day), we’ve found ourselves wanting to know more about our water supply, and frankly some of what we’ve come across scares us a bit. Did you know that bottled water is often only filtered tap water? We didn’t realize there was so much to fear from our tap water but we have learned there is. Because of this, we find we’re more inclined to purchasing bottled water, but even that brings up a whole other set of researching on bottling methods, packaging, water sources, etc. The result of our research led us to kaletra coronavirus Icebox Water, a clean, crisp, pure spring water from Canada that is packaged at its source, the True North Spring.

 icebox-water

The naturally organic Icebox Water spring water is filtered in the glacier-carved freshwater fjords (“a long, narrow inlet with steep sides or cliffs, created by glacial erosion” source link *) of Newfoundland, far away from contaminants. This refreshing, environmentally-friendly, and safe for you, premium spring water has a pH of 7.4, 14.0 mg/L of Calcium, 2.0 mg/L of Magnesium, boasts safe and eco-friendly, BPA-free, pressed paper packaging that contains 76% less plastic than a PET bottle (regular water bottles made of polyethylene terephthalate), is compostable and 100% recyclable, and has a shape that fits just about anywhere. We didn’t realize there was a difference in water until we tried Icebox and tasted how different it was from the filtered tap water and the bottled water we drank. The difference is beyond it being good for you, Icebox made us realize that we didn’t drink more water because we just didn’t like the taste. With Icebox, we easily met and surpassed the required amount of water we’re supposed to drink in a day.

We think everyone should try Icebox Water, a case of 12 – 500ml Cartons is only $12.00, and compare it to their current drinking water, you won’t go back.

NEW MOVIE RELEASE: The DUFF

High School is all about labels – but when Mae Whitman realizes she is labeled of the DUFF (Designated Ugly Fat Friend), she is determined to change the way that she is perceived by everyone else. She strikes up a deal with one of the cute and popular boys in class – if she helps him get his grades up, he will help her lose the title of the DUFF.

But is it possible? Or is it once a DUFF always a DUFF? This movie raises the age-old question: are the labels that others give us really as important as we make them? Or are the ones that we give ourselves the labels that truly matter? We are wondering how this movie will portray labels and the effect that they have on us – this is especially important to teenagers. In a time where we are trying our best to be accepted by others, this movie will speak to a lot of people, anyone who hates labels, have been labeled incorrectly, or refuses to be pigeonholed into a category young as well as old. Check out the trailer below:

Do you think the DUFF will be able to get the guy in the end?  Find out when the movie hits theaters, on February 20th

Restaurant Review: Need Epic Valentine’s Day Dinner Plans? Try Burger & Lobster NYC

We love discovering new, amazing places to dine, and our latest favorite culinary indulgence, Burger & Lobster NYC, is an UK import that offers two only entrees – Burgers and Lobsters (hence the name), at what is a beyond an amazing price. The gigantic restaurant is perfect for a night out with family, friends, or that special someone. And since it’s Valentine’s Day, what better time than to indulge your sweetheart to a fantastic meal for only $20.00 per entree. My blogger buddy, Christine Ongsueng, accompanied me to experience this simple but memorable menu. Although there is a menu for drinks, a physical menu for the entrees is not needed, rather the servers become walking menus, delighting you with tales of their experiences while indulging in the amazing culinary offerings. Below is our take on everything from the food, to the decor, to the super friendly and inviting staff.

Steak Burger

Burger-and-Lobster-NYC-Steak-Burger2-www.mylifeonandofftheguestlist.com_ Burger-and-Lobster-NYC-Steak-Burger-close-up-www.mylifeonandofftheguestlist.com_

Glasgow/Chris: The burgers are so flavorful and delicious, it should be a sin to indulge so greatly. Made from three cuts of steak – 60% Chuck, 20% brisket, 20% tri-tip, and topped with cheese and bacon in a bun that’s good enough to be consumed by itself, you may just find yourself surrendering to this Juicy, tender, and flavorsome burger.

Lobster Roll

Burger-and-Lobster-NYC-Lobster-Roll-on-brioche-bun-www.mylifeonandofftheguestlist.com_ Burger-and-Lobster-NYC-Lobster-Roll-on-brioche-bun2-www.mylifeonandofftheguestlist.com_

Chris: This is not your average $20.00 rinky dink lobster roll slathered in mayo. This is the best lobster roll I’ve had to date and I’ve tried quite a few around the city. First off, every square inch of the bread is covered in huge chunks of lobster meat. There was no stinting here! Most places give you a scoop full of lobster slathered in some thick goopy dressing. These lobster rolls are not heavy on the dressing. In fact, the sauce enhances the flavors of the lobster instead of masking them.

Glasgow: Where do I begin? Shall I begin with the brioche bun that will make you want everything you ever eat from now on to come on a brioche bun, or maybe the instant feeling of “this is what my life has been missing” upon the first bite, or how about the 1/2 pound of the most succulent, buttery lobster I’ve ever experienced. Yes, I can talk about all these things, but nothing could properly prepare you for that magic moment when your taste buds surrender to this savory decadence.

Grilled Lobster

Burger-and-Lobster-NYC-Grilled-Lobster-www.mylifeonandofftheguestlist.com_ Burger-and-Lobster-NYC-Grilled-Lobster2-www.mylifeonandofftheguestlist.com_

Chris: You can have the lobster your way– steamed or grilled. We opted for the latter and couldn’t have been happier with our choice. Yet another behemoth of pure tastiness. This was no junior lobster. This was 1.5lbs of grilled goodness. The natural taste of the lobster meat is elevated by the smokey grilled method. But as if things could not get any better, there’s the golden butter garlic sauce in which to bathe your lobster in. More than just melted butter, this dipping sauce contains a mix of seasonings that are embedded into the butter without coagulation.

Glasgow: This was the best tasting and freshest Lobster I’ve ever had. The two choices of lobster preparation will leave you in a delicious conundrum. Fans of steamed lobster will surrender to the intensity of flavor that the smokiness of fire brings forth in the grilled version while fans of grilled lobster will want to savor the sweetness and tenderness of the lobster meat that steaming provides. Whichever one you choose, you can’t go wrong, although you will find yourself wanting to try both.

Ambiance

Burger-and-Lobster-NYC-Lobster-tanks-www.mylifeonandofftheguestlist.com_ Burger-and-Lobster-NYC-www.mylifeonandofftheguestlist.com_

Chris: Normally, huge restaurants run the risk of being too bare or being over saturated with tacky decor. Thankfully, that was not the case at burger and lobster. Upon entering, one is greeted by a huge tank of lobsters whose names are cheekily written in chalk above their heads. The long bar is impressive in its size and sleekness; makes waiting for a table more tolerable and less likely to get you jostled while ordering a drink. Lobster traps are used as a subtle but impressive wall barriers. The wide aisles in between the booths make it easier for servers balancing platters of deliciousness to pass through without having to disturb the customers. There’s also a downstairs seating area complete with its own bar and a full view of the lobster containers—over 4,000 lobsters can be housed in climate-controlled blue crates!

Glasgow: I was amazed to find how a space so incredibly huge can be so intimate and open at the same time. It really is the perfect place to have a group dinner, romantic meal (another reminder it’s Valentine’s Day), or get-together with friends. The layout offers the option of a private dinner and neighbor interaction, it’s up to you. One very notable moment was getting up close and personal with one of Burger & Lobster NYC’s Big Boys. They are huge and have the most adorable phrases written on their tanks.

The Staff

Burger-and-Lobster-NYC-Our-Server-Edward-www.mylifeonandofftheguestlist.com_ Burger-and-Lobster-NYC-Our-Server-Edward2-www.mylifeonandofftheguestlist.com_

Chris: The staff is one of the nicest I’ve ever encountered. From the pure jovial nature of the hostess to the knowledgeable and entertaining waiter. The staff at Burger & Lobster NYC know just how to make their customers feel special and at home. They are attentive without overbearing and their attitudes were authentic and sweet. Through our server, Edward, we learned all about the food we were being served as well as the fact that they treat the staff very well. It’s no wonder they came across utterly genuine.

Glasgow: Let me begin by saying we both fell instantly in love with Edward and didn’t want to share him with the other diners. We asked to take a photo with our meal and the above is what we got…how can you not love him for that? It felt like we were having dinner with an old friend as he told us which meal was his favorite, the “problems” of having to taste test everything (hilariously sarcastic), and the love of his job. And though Edward was our server, we were visited by other staff who just wanted to say hello and laugh with us a bit….such an amazing friendly environment and people who really love what they do.

Alexandr-Grigorev-Burger-and-Lobster-NYC-Mug-www.mylifeonandofftheguestlist.com_

Chris: Russian artist, Alexandr Grigorev, has been commissioned by Burger & Lobster to do all of their artwork. Everything from the logo to the bibs to the murals that grace the sides of the high ceilings are done by Alexandr Grigorev. I absolutely fell in love with his oddly classic but modern caricatures of an array of different people.

Glasgow: Chris definitely says it best here on the artwork. As for me, what can I say? I love all things cheeky, and the raised eyebrow shown on the mug is dong things to me lol. I see so much in these pieces from Alexandr Grigorev and I think that’s the point.

So there’s our take. All of this is what you get the low cost of $20.00 per entree at Burger & Lobster NYC. I bet you to find a better deal or better meal for that price. trust us, your Valentine’s Day date will be highly impressed.

Beauty From Within: HUM Nutrition: Cleanse to the Rescue 21-Day Program

Just as you clean out the junk and clutter out of their closets every spring, you should also clean out the junk and clutter from your body. Cleansing is a great way to rid your body of toxins which can benefit your organs, aid in digestion, and help clear your skin. We had the pleasure of trying the HUM Nutrition: Cleanse to the Rescue, a 21-Day cleanse program of herbal ingredients, and enzyme blends that supports your skin, a flatter stomach, and healthy digestion. Some of these powerful components include Red Clover (Skin Cleansing Extract), Dandelion Root (Detoxifying Extract), Bladderwrack (Cleansing Kelp), and Lipase (Fat Busting Enzyme).

The Cleanse to the Rescue 21-day program features 21 daily pill packets that combine Daily Cleanse and Flatter Me, for total health renewal. While Daily Cleanse combines organic chlorella algae, bladderwrack kelp, beetroot and milk thistle to detox, and protect your skin, liver, bowels, kidneys, lungs, and lymphatic system, Flatter Me is a comprehensive enzyme blend that supports all major phases of nutrient digestion. It is optimized to breakdown protein, carbs, fiber, and fats, and helps relieve indigestion and paves the way to a slimmer, happier body.

We were excited to try a cleanse that didn’t require depriving or starving ourselves (although we do advise against eating absolutely everything you want….it is a cleanse after all, and IT WILL DO ITS JOB!). We found we drank more water, which helped to flush out the toxins from our body more quickly and had more energy than usual. Within the first few days of using it, we noticed we felt less bloated, (the test was a pair of stubborn jeans that finally fit again), experienced less gas, and didn’t feel overly stuffed after a meal. We actually felt better eating less. If you are looking for a cleanse that won’t put your body into shock, you should definitely try the HUM Nutrition: Cleanse to the Rescue. you can also follow the cleanse with one of their other amazing products. We’re dying to try some of their other products, like Gut Instinct, OMG! Omega the Great, and continue detoxing with Daily Cleanse.

The HUM Nutrition: Cleanse to the Rescue, and their other products are available only on HUM Nutrition, and at Sephora.

Culinary Delights: The Launch of Flavors of Aloha: Cooking with Tommy Bahama Cookbook

It’s no surprise we are a fan of good food…..can you blame us? So we were really excited when we received the invitation to celebrate the new cookbook by renowned Chef, Lifestyle Expert, and Author, Rick Rodgers. The famed food writer partnered with Tommy Bahama Restaurant, to preview the visually stunning, and tantalizing cookbook, Flavors of Aloha: Cooking with Tommy Bahama. We arrived just in time to hear the man himself introduce his newest gift to the culinary industry (trust us, after sampling some of the delicious fare, you can’t help but call these recipes gift-worthy).
Flavors-of-Aloha-Cooking-with-Tommy-Bahama-www.mylifeonandofftheguestlist.com_ Rick-Rodgers-at-Cooking-with-Tommy-Bahama-Event-www.mylifeonandofftheguestlist.com_

Flavors of Aloha: Cooking with Tommy Bahama highlights everything from poultry, and seafood, to desserts and cocktails. It is a feast for the eyes as well as the palette. We began the evening with some wonderfully delicious cocktails – Mai Tai, Hibiscus Cooler, and an addictive cocktail called Pain Killer #2. They were the perfect way to begin this culinary Hawaiian adventure.

We can’t think of Hawaiian flavors without thinking of Spam, so it was no surprise to find an amazing spam dish, Spam Musubi, at this event, which we heartily devoured. We then headed over for a fresh and savory Ahi Tuna Poke, a wonderful combination of fresh Ahi Tuna, Guacamole, and herbs and spices.
