For the past few weeks I have been a complete Stalker! I went to Atlanta a while back and on the way back home to Greenville My Mom and I stopped at Brand Mart USA since it was a store she's never been in. That's when it all Started. On the way out I came across a KitchenAid Display and I was instantly obsessed. Since I'm not the type of person who can just buy something on a whim I pulled myself away and went on my merry way. I thought I'd move on and and forget... Well I didn't. At first I was upset that i didn't buy it because they had a sale and a rebate which made the mixer $285 plus tax. The cheapest I could find it online was $315. So the rebate was over and I once again filed it in the back of my mind. I felt really bad because I could go to my local Costco and buy a similar model for $150. So I struggled with the dilemma of is it worth paying double just to get the color. Which then brought me to the idea of finding a used one on Craig's list and having my brother paint it. He paints cars so i figured perfect i could even pick my own color. But the more I thought about it I could not forgot about Ms. Raspberry Ice. I even found an ebay store that KitchenAid has with refurbished models but they wanted 230 plus tax and it was with the stainless steel bowl. So by the time I bought the glass bowl I'd end up paying more so I just bite the bullet. I came across a Website that was having a sale Everythingkitchens.com , they had it for 304.09 and on their facebook website they had a 10 bucks off coupon not to mention no tax and free shipping. That was it I bought this beauty on Easter as a little present for myself and I'm still so excited about it that I had to go all out and do some matching nail art! Plus Kitchenaid has a rebate now where you can either get a meat grinder attachment or an extra glass bowl... I've already got the grinder so I'm getting an extra bowl! Total Win Win, Glad i didn't buy it the first day i saw it or else i'd end up paying more and I wouldn't have the extra bowl.
A little side note... I've never been a huge fan of hot pink, never had an urge to own a mixer like this so I'm really puzzled to why I has this strong need to have this. But I'd do it again. I pulled her out and made some chocolate chip cookies... (here's the recipe hands down some of the best cookies i had, and I'm not a huge cookie fan)
Okay a quick note about the polish. It's Zoya Trinity and it was the closest matching color I could find, almost a near dupe of the mixer. This color is freaking hot!! Just like the mixer it's a hot pink but it sometimes looks like a super rich magenta. Formula was perfect no issues. Love looking down at my nails and being remind of my new mixer! I showed my husband my "mixer" nail art and he totally laughed at me, He thinks I've gone nuts with the mixer!
PS: Kitchenaid please come out with a matching nail polish line for your mixers, I'm sure a lot of us Nail polish fanatics would be all over that!! Hint hint!!
