Unboxing my Influenster Fierce VoxBox

Packages in the mail…who doesn’t enjoy receiving them? I sure do! Every now and then Influenster sends me their VoxBox and I love it! This time it was their Fierce VoxBox and it had 5 items. See what I got below. 😀 • Vaseline 100% Pure Petroleum Jelly Good old vaseline! My parents used the heck out of this stuff when I was growing up. Haha! • Carefree Acti-Fresh Pantyliners, these will for sure be used. • Madam C.J. Walker Brassica Seed Oil I love a good hair oil. I used it every day, can’t wait to try this one.

I got an ipsy subscription! Here’s my Glam Bag for February

I have finally subscribed to ipsy. After months and months of contemplating and watching everybody’s goodies on blogs and YouTube, I finally caved and got a subscription myself. I first signed up for a trial bag through my friend Sheyla from Her Cryptic Life, which really pushed me over the edge. I really liked what I’d received and for $10 a month is a pretty sweet deal! Especially if you’re into samples and trying new stuff like I am. So now I have a subscription (which I can cancel at any time, of course.) and I’m really happy with it.

Empties! Marc Jacobs, Nip + Fab, IT Cosmetics and more

I’m so bad at these empties posts! I keep forgetting to save the empty packaging. So what you see here, is not everything… Some of my empties from the past 3 months ended up in the trash before I could show them to you. Oops! I promise I’ll do better next time. 😀 From left to right: • Marc Jacobs Lust for Lacquer Lip Vinyls – a plumping lipgloss with ultimate shine (found these at TJ Maxx, they are not sold anymore). • Ahava Clinical Skinpro Calming Facial Moisturizer – helps relieve irritation and redness for intolerant skin. • Glisten

Mommy review: SoCozy hair products for kids (and a sweepstake!)

Both my kids were born with a full head of hair. My 4-year-old son has thick straight hair, whereas his sister (who will be 5 months in a few days) has more fine, curly hair. One thing they have in common: they both have A LOT of hair! For this reason, I make sure to use good products on their hair; products they use at (kids) salons. For Mason’s hair I’ve been using SoCozy. Mason has been using SoCozy’s Boing Shampoo, Conditioner and Leave-In Spray. Seems like a lot for a boy who’s only 4 years old, but he doesn’t

Giveaway! Win a Peanut Butter & Jelly Eyeshadow Palette from Too Faced

2/14 Giveaway is now closed. Hi everyone! As you might have noticed my blog was down for a couple of days. The hosting company I was with, had ended my service and took my blog down without my consent. On Tuesday I woke up to see a blank page. A blank page! I’ve owned this domain for over 11 years, so you can imagine how upset I was. To make things worse, the hosting company did not have a working backup, so all my content was pretty much gone, as far as they were concerned. Luckily, I had a recent

Tip/mini review: Nip+Fab Glycolic Fix Serum and Scrub

The other day I posted on my Instagram how I saved a ton of money on two Nip+Fab products at CVS. I don’t ‘coupon’ often, but when I do I try to save as much as I can of course. For this particular purchases, I waited for a sale (in this case: buy one, get one 50% off), I combined several CVS coupons and I also used CVS Extrabucks I had acquired. Score! I love these particular Nip+Fab products because they contain Glycolic Acid, which is great for refining pores, brightening the complexion and decongesting the skin, by improving the
