Nuun: Hydrating Electrolyte Tablets {Review}

Before I was a wife and mom, I was an athlete. I like to think that I am still an athlete some days, so when I discovered this product, my inner athlete was drawn to it. The convenience of a simple tablet put into water with tNunhe purpose of hydrating, replenishing electrolytes, and providing an energy boost was super appealing. I quickly contacted Nuun and lucky for us, they were eager to share their product with the BurritoBuzz Moms.

Nuun is based out of Seattle and over the course their 12 year history, have become “the #1 selling sports drink tab in the cycling, running, and outdoor specialty marketplaces.” I know what you’re thinking, we aren’t athletes. We’re moms. It doesn’t matter. Our sport is life. There are so many days where we feel like we have basically competed in the Olympics, just in the comfort of our own homes, surrounded by our rowdy kids. It is so important for moms to stay healthy and hydrated for our families and ourselves!

“Clean Product, Clean Planet, and Clean Sport” are the principles Nuun strives to abide by, which I think speaks volumes in a world filled with artificial products harming people and our planet. Nuun tablets feature plant-based ingredients, are gluten free, vegan, soy/dairy free, low calorie, contain no preservatives, and are packed with valuable electrolytes. Sounds legit, right? They’re not packed with sugar and artificial sweeteners like so many other products.

Nuun offers different varieties based on your needs. We sampled Nuun Active and Nuun Energy. The products were similar, but the Energy variety does have green tea extract for an added caffeine boost. A friend of mine, who is a competitive runner, sampled the Nuun Active and said “it was perfect for both before and after my long runs” and “it actually tasted really good!” They also untitledhave a Plus for Nuun (can be added during endurance activities) and Nuun All Day Hydration. Nuun All Day Hydration is perfect for busy, on-the-go individuals, like moms, who want to make sure they are getting all the right minerals and vitamins along with the appropriate hydration to stay healthy for their families. I will definitely be ordering my own here.

You’re probably wondering what the Nuun tablets taste like. If you’re thinking this product sounds great so there’s no way it can taste good, you’d be wrong. I was very surprised by how much I enjoyed the different flavors. The flavors were very refreshing and not overpowering. Some of their options include orange, tri-berry, citrus fruit, and lemon lime. When you purchase a Nuun tube, you get 10 tablets. Each tablet then goes on to dissolve in 16 oz of water. My only complaint would be that the tablets do take a few minutes to completely dissolve, so be patient! But it’s well worth the wait!

You can purchase Nuun and read all about their mission and products by visiting their website here. They also have an awesome comparison of all of their different products on this page. Nuun is also available on Amazon – Nuun Active, Nuun Energy, and Plus for Nuun.

Enso Silicone Rings {Review}

I’m sure it’s happened to everyone at some point; I even remember it happening to me as a child. I was playing around with my mom and suddenly, her wedding ring scratched my little face. I know I’ve done it to my girls and I feel completely awful when it happens. Rings can hurt, I have scratched myself plenty of times as well. After my oldest started to complain about me “scratching her”, I started leaving my rings off during the daIMG_9430 (1)y. But my hand felt naked, I love wearing my rings. But I hated that my poor daughter didn’t want me wearing them. I’ve heard about silicone rings for men who worked dangerous jobs like firefighters, mechanics, welders, etc. and how they were comfortable and safe. But I didn’t just want a single silicone band, I wanted something a little more girly and fashionable.

I saw Enso Rings on Facebook and immediately went to their website. I fell in love with their stackable silicone rings for women. I reached out to the company and they were kind enough to send a set of 3 stackable rings to review. I wear size 7 rings so I ordered the black, white and plum rings in a size 7 and they fit perfectly. They are true to size, so be sure to order your normawebsite-header-logol ring size. As soon as I put them on, I knew they were exactly what I wanted. They’re so comfortable, I hardly notice they’re on my finger. I love the option to wear one, two or all three at one time and that I can order different colors to be able to coordinate the rings with my clothes. They’re available in several colors: white, black, turquoise, plum and peach, and you can customize sets of 2, 3, 4 or 5 with whatever colors you’d like. The rings are also available in a women’s size 4 up to a size 9.

They’re also perfect for summer, as you don’t have to worry about wearing them in the pool or to the beach. They would be ideal on vacation, as well, so you don’t have to worry about expensive rings getting lost and great to wear to the gym, since they’re comfortable unlike traditional metal rings. I think they’d be good for those who work in the healthcare field, too! If your kids are like mine, they’ll be happy you got a “softer” ring so you don’t scratch them anymore, as my daughter says. Enso also offers sIMG_9712ilicone bands for men and women in several colors and two collections: Infinity and Ultralite. Bundles are available in both collections, as well as the stack-ables.

I love my new stack-able rings from Enso! The peach and turquoise rings are on my list so I can switch up my look! I give them 5 out of 5 stars, as they are exactly what I was looking for! Unique and different from just the silicone band, but also fashionable.

I’m watching Kelly & Michael (and there’s nothing you can do to stop me.)

kelly-ripa-michael-strahanI’m sitting here on my day off. Baby coaxed to sleep by a vibrating, humming elephant that is actually kind of creepy. Coffee in hand. Pajamas still on. And Kelly & Micheal on my TV, which is usually playing cartoons. There are so many things I could be doing…

…editing photos from the many photo shoots we’ve had this fall season (my husband and I are photographers on the side.)

…sweeping my house.

…laundry (always the laundry.)

…putting on makeup?

It’s one of those mornings where it’s just not happening. You can’t guilt me.

My tiny human has been sleeping like he’s a newborn again, up every few hours or more. Teething like crazy, whining and flailing around trying to grow some tiny bones from his face. I’m not discrediting that it hurts to grow teeth, but as parents our exhaustion level is intense.

I didn’t even want to write this blog. Hashtag honesty?

I want to sit mindlessly and watch Kelly & Michael. I’ve always been jealous of people that can just watch Kelly & Michael (or Kathy Lee and Regis, Regis and Kelly, Kelly/Michael with random hosts.) I’ve always worked full-time, so by the time the show is on I’m laboring over a keyboard staring at a bright computer screen. After having a baby and going part-time, my days became filled with cartoons.

I’m a total busybody (and everybody knows it.) My brain is almost incapable of letting me just do nothing, even for a few minutes.

Sometimes I need the reminder of how much I’m actually doing. Raising a baby in itself is hard work, and all the other work on top of it? Sometimes I’m not sure how I do it. I need to cut myself a break and not feel guilty.

So today I’m going to sit, even if it’s just for 10 minutes to watch Michael and Kelly. It’s happening. You should make it happen, too.
