Hi Mari, how’s it going? I just wanted to fill you in on what's new at Lunch. There are lots of great new features to explore! Thought you might like to check out this review on the Magic Bullet Smoothie Maker by @stephaniezhu or a review on a KitchenAid Coffee Grinder by @splogue. You could write microreviews on anything you wish (140 characters or less) or create lists on topics that interest you. Let me know if you have any questions and I hope to see you around lunch!

Mari, I just wanted to let you know that I love your reviews! :) All those kitchen gadgets and the sewing books, lots of things I've been looking for. I think we have a few things in common... I think I just spent an hour devouring all your great writing!

Thanks! I'm glad my reviews are helpful. ThereĀ“s nothing as bad as buying something with high hopes of it being extremely useful or entertaining, and then having all your hopes crushed. I'll be posting some new reviews soon (I work on them in batches!) and I hope you'll find those useful as well. Thanks again!

Thanks Mari, I'll be on the lookout for those!
