My New Baby - Keurig 2.0 - Product Review

Keurig 2.0 Product Review


As my life is about to get busier and crazier with a newborn, I had to make changes in my house. One of those changes is getting my tea and coffee fix quickly. Yes it might seem really silly to you but my coffee or tea is the first order of business for me and the most important business of my day. I am Jamaican so my stomach expects something hot, first thing in the morning. So, with that said, say hello to my baby before the real baby, The Keurig 2.0.


I have always wanted a Keurig - way before the husband and the baby was even a dream. However, a new pair of shoes or a handbag always came in the way. What single woman can pass up a good pair of shoes or bag for electronics? But now, priorities have changed. The simple life is now required and my Keurig 2.0 is the beginning.

My need for coffee or tea right when I need it has been fullfilled. Not after I pull out the teapot, fill it up with water, wait for it to boil to make my tea or my instant coffee but actually right here this second. Oh, and I have been dying to be able to brew ground coffee instead of instant coffee for ages. But making a pot of coffee for myself made no sense whatsoever so a regular brewer was pointless. Derrick won't drink coffee if I paid him; so all that good coffee will be thrown out after I have had a cup or two. With my new Keurig I can have what I want and just enough for me with the single server brewer option. Oh and Derrick can get his hot chocolate on demand - the only hot beverage that he tolerates.

So let's talk about the good and the bad.

Pros:
  • The price is not bad at all. I stepped into my own pocket and paid $119 at Costco for the Keurig 2.0 and I am very happy that I did. Also, I got a ton of free K-cup packs to use from different brands and strengths. My husband bought me that cute stand to store my K-Cups and I think its quite 'chic'. Thanks boo!
  • It's REALLY quick. No more standing in those crazy lines at Starbucks and Joe's for a a cup of coffee. Brewing a very nice cup of coffee literally took seconds with absolutely no clean up whatsoever. Ain't that heaven? Push a button and your done.
  • The reservoir is quite large. Unlike most single server Brewers from Keurig this one has a very large but slick reservoir. This means that you will be able to go daysssssss without filling up the machine with water. I did say that I wanted the simple life right? Lol! I love it.
  • It's not only a single server brewer. The Keurig 2.0 comes with a carafe where you can brew a big jug of coffee, tea or hot chocolate. I might not get much use out of this unless I can find iced tea carafe packs for when we have company over. I cannot comment on the carafe because I have not used that part of the keuriq. 
  • Abundance of coffee and tea choices! I swear there is a K-Cup for every brand of coffee. I might be exaggerating a little but not by much. I love that I can buy lots of variety packs from many retailers like Target, Walmart, Keurig and Costco.
Con:
  • You cannot use a reusable filter so as to make your own coffee as with the older Keurig models.  You have to buy K-Cups. However, I am sure either Keurig or a third party company will design a reusable cup for this model.


If you are a coffee or tea drinker you will love this machine!

INTERLOCKING ROTATION | 2 Point vs 4 Point Rotation On Locs

INTERLOCKING ROTATION | 2 Point vs 4 Point Rotation On Locs

Hi Loves,

I always get asked about how do I interlock my locs and the rotation I used - whether its 2-point or 4-point rotation. Some people also use the term 2-way or 4-way rotation.

In the video below, I illustrate on my own locs, the difference between the two methods. you can then compare for yourself, if there is a difference between the two by looking at my locs.



Do you interlock your locs? Share below which rotation do you use?
