Lawry's Southwest Chicken Skillet-BuzzAgent Review

I received this packet of Lawry's spices & seasoning mix along with two other ones and a full size bottle of seasoned salt, from BzzAgent. These were given to me to use in my cooking routine and to give my honest opinion on them.
I already have tried the Taco Seasoning mix, which I loved. The one that I used today was my first time ever using this seasoning mix.  The name of the mix was Southwest Chicken Skillet. The ingredients that were needed was chicken, black beans, corn, rice, diced tomatoes, water and cheese.
I like dishes like these because everything can be done in one skillet. That means less dishes to wash and a cleaner stove top. I was actually dreading to make this meal because I thought it was going to take a long time to cook. I was so wrong! The meal was complete in less that 30 minutes.
After completely cooking it and allowing the cheese to melt, I gave it a quick taste. It was very good. I was a little weary about giving it to my 4 year old because it was a little spicy. Apparently not to spicy for him though. He finished the whole plate. My husband had 3 servings (he missed lunch) and loved it. I really liked the taste too.
I will definitely buy this seasoning mix next time we go grocery shopping. I recommend Lawry's Southwest Chicken Skillet seasoning mix to anyone who has trouble making meals (like me) or anyone who just likes to eat!!
Thanks for stopping by.

Recycled Birchbox

Every Birchbox comes with a sheet of tissue paper.

ModPodged tissue paper

Finished box to put birthday gift

Last month was Green Month. BirchBox was asking to post photos of upcycled Birchboxes. I am a little to late but thought I would post this anyway. My moms birthday is right around the corner. Sometimes finding just the right bag and tissue paper can be a little expensive. There's usually never any coupons for that kind of stuff. I knew I had some zebra print duct tape somewhere hidden in my car. I think it was left over from Vacation Bible School projects. I opened up the trunk and found it under a blanket. I grabbed my empty Birchbox and began to cover the sides and top with the tape. I did not like the way the inside looked, so I decided to modpodge the insides with the tissue paper that every Birchbox comes with. I also modpodged the outsides of the box to give the box a gloss finish and to prevent the tape from coming undone. After letting the mod podge dry all night, I filled the box with my moms gifts and used a sheer purple ribbon to finish off the look.
I really like this because she can reuse this box to put whatever she wants in it. This duct tape can be found at Hobby Lobby, Michael's or Walmart. I hope you enjoy and recycle your box too.

Derm E
This is another product that I received in my Influenster VoxBox. I received the DermaE  Very Clear Cleansing Scrub exfoliant. It is suppose to help remove impurities and prevent breakouts. The tube is 4oz.
After using it a few times, I really did not want to use it anymore. The smell is really strong for my liking. I prefer a ,more subtle scent. This has a really strong scent of tea tree, willow bark,rosewood,lavender and chamomile.
My husband has a few skin problems. We are always on the look out for something that will help him. I told him to give this a try. I could not believe how soft the area around his nose felt. I was shocked. So was he. His face looks and feels so much better.
This scrub is not really grainy like the scrub that I prefer to use. You also do not need to use alot unlike the one I use. A small amount works really well. The directions also say you can use it wet or dry. I always used it wet and so does my husband. Then you massage gently and rinse. I am sure my husband will continue to use this and I will make sure to buy it for him once he runs out.
This product is not tested on animals, its paraben-free and eco-friendly. Make sure to visit their website for more information on their skin care line.

Juice Beauty Review

Organic Fig

Packaged in this box .14 oz
This is one of my favorite products that I received in my Influenster VoxBox. This Conditioning Lip Color is by Juice Beauty. The color is Organic Fig. I think this color is great for fall. It's a really nice soft berry brown color. You can easily build up the color if you want. I like to use it when I am in a hurry to run quick errands which is almost everyday.  It moisturizes my lips and gives them just the right amount of color. This is also made with Certified Organic ingredients, which is an extra bonus. If you are interested in buying this product feel free to visit there website. I put the link above. Don't forget to visit Influenster for more information on VoxBox program. Here is their link
As always, thanks for stopping by.
