Just Needing to Vent!!!

Never thought of my husband as being cheap.I asked him to buy me some shoes for church that were only $24.00 from Target.As he was paying for them the expression on his face was like as if he was paying for a pair of a million dollar shoes. He spends more money in one week on buying and trading HotWheels than those one pair of sandles. Geez,Im glad I didn't ask him for fancier shoes from a real department store. I'm already praying and believing for an awesome part time job that will let me take my son to school and be home by the time he gets out. Thanks for stopping by. Just wanted to vent a little:)

Kiss Nail Dress

 I received these Kiss Nail Dress fashion stickers complimentary for testing and review purposes in my Influenster Love VoxBox.
www.influenster.com      
www.KissNailDress.com


 Kiss Nail Dress come in 18 different designs. They also have 3D designs and by the look of them they look amazing!I hope to try those soon!
 The Kiss Nail Dress come with everything you need. It has 28 strips that can be used on your fingernails or toenails and a double sided nail file. Just make sure your nails are polish free and give them a quick wipe with alcohol or nail polish remover to take away any oils that may be on nail.
 The stickers come in different sizes.The backing is clear and makes it easy to measure which size is best for your nail.For your fingernails use the rounded side of the strip and apply it near the cuticle. For your toenails use the square side of strip and apply near cuticle.
 I put these on in less than 10 minutes and went to bed right after.No drying time is needed and I woke up to a smudge proof mani and pedi.
My manicure

My pedicure
I still have a few left over stickers that I might use on my next pedicure!! You can find the Kiss Nail Dress at Wal-Mart,CVS and Walgreens.They retail for $6.99 not bad considering you can do both hand and feet.

Here is a quick tutorial on how to apply them!

Do You Zumba?????



I will be the first to admit that I am a closet dancer. I dance when no one can see me and that is usually in the bathroom while blow drying my hair or in the kitchen making dinner or washing dishes. I will do the occasional booby shake while vacuuming. For laughs, I will dance only with my son to get our sillys out. I am super shy/embarrassed to dance in front of anybody. My husband and son have the best rhythm and dance moves I have ever seen. They are the total opposite of me and I am so grateful for that!!
We have a wedding to go to in July. I decided to start prepping. I told my husband that I wanted to dance at the wedding and I was going to start doing Zumba. He got super excited. I have been nervous all week about going but my beautiful son encouraged me! Oh how I love him!! Today was the big day. I got to the gym early to get a spot at the back of the room in the very corner. The music started and I had a blast!! I loved it. You really don't have to know how to dance to go and enjoy the class. Its just about moving your body to awesome music. I felt so proud of myself for getting through the whole class. You don't realize how fast the time goes and how much you can sweat by just moving your body. I still have two left feet but I'm gonna keep on shaking what my momma gave me!!

Garnier B.B.Cream-BzzCampaign



The box my package came in. Delivered through regular mail and fits in standard size mailbox
http://www.bzzagent.com/

Full Size 2.5 fl oz tube
shade: Medium/Deep
http://www.garnierusa.com/




5 coupons

information packet

before photo
clean face


after photo
I love how my face looks. It has a really nice glow to it. It also looks really natural. My skin tone looks even.Applying the B.B.cream is quick and mistake proof. Just apply it with your fingers. No need for fancy brushes or sponges. I applied starting at my forehead and worked myself down to my neck. This provides protection with SPF15 and covers and corrects blemishes or spots you may have.


I will be turning 35 years old in a few month, if this is going to help my skin looking radiant, I am going to continue to use this.



I received this product complimentary from BzzAgent to test and review. These are my honest opinions

What is B.B.Cream.
B.B. stands for Beauty Balm. This has been popular in Asia since 2006. Although it was created by a German dermatologist in 1960. Garnier is the first to introduce B.B. cream in the mass market making it affordable to everyone.  You can easily find this at Target and Wal-Mart for about $12.99. I always see coupons for Garnier in the Sunday papers as well.
The Garnier B.B. cream contains moisturizers with Vitamin C and Mineral Pigments which gives your skin a smooth,even,and healthy glow. It did not feel greasy or oily at all. It does not feel heavy or caked on your face. After the first use, my husband even noticed. He said "wow babe, you look pretty". I have to agree, I thought so too:) Another great thing about this is that it only comes in 2 shades,Light/Medium or Medium/Deep. No more guessing or trying to match which shade is right for you by testing on your chin or wrist. I love that!! You can also reapply the cream as needed. I think this is a great product to have handy in your purse. It covers up quickly and  makes your skin look flawless. I love it!

Here is my video for more info.
Thanks for stoping by

Truvia® natural sweetener Product Review

www.truvia.com



First natural zero calorie sweetener!!! Tastes good too♥


Actually looks like real sugar!!

This was another awesome product that I received  complimentary to test through Influenster’s VoxBox program. This was also my first time using the Truvia Natural Sweetener. I don't usually use sugar everyday but since I want to cut back on sodas I bought a gallon of unsweetened tea to go with the Truvia. I was not sure what to expect. I thought it was going to be a powdery substance like most sweeteners are, but to my surprise, it actually looked and tasted like real sugar. Even my son thought so. He's actually asking for a packet right now. Maybe I will sprinkle some for him on his strawberries tomorrow. I really enjoyed my iced tea with the Truvia natural sweetener. I am definitely going to continue to use this and purchase it once my sample package runs out! I love it.

Venus & Olay Razor


Non Slip grip handle

Olay Moisture Bar Razor

suction cup

left leg shaved right leg HAIRY

nice smooth soft hairless legs!!

I am part of Influenster and I recieved this product to test and review
http://www.influenster.com/

When I was about to start to shave my legs, I thought to myself do I need shaving cream? Guess what the answer is no. The Gillette Venus & Olay Razor already has it on the razors top and bottom. When you wet the razor a nice lather is released. The pivoting blade itself has 5 razors which gives you a close shave. Its almost feels like you are not shaving at all. The shave is so smooth. And when you rinse, the lather feels so good on your legs, its like a seperate bathe for your legs. It also has a ergonomic handle for control that way it doesnt slip out of your hand while you are showering. Overall I think this is an amazing razor. No need to worry about shaving cream.Its all there on the razor. Your legs are left feeling and looking great!! A refillable Venus & Olay with one replacement cartridge sells for approximately $8.99-$10.99. Packages of three replacement cartridges are available for about $14.99 - $19.49.
Venus & Olay will be available starting

China Glaze Magnetix Nail Polish

Instant Chemistry
The design is not very visible with this color. I applied a thin coat and this is how it turned out. When I applied a thicker coat the design was less visible.

Pull Me Close
The designs show up much more clearer with this color. If you are looking to get a magnetix polish, I recommend this one. No disappointments here.


I bought these at Sally's Beauty Supply. They had a sale going on buy 2 magnetix polish and get the magnet free.


As you can see I smudged my thumb nail over the magnet. If this happens to you make sure you wipe off the magnet immediately

The magnet comes with 3 different designs.
Below each rectangular magnet is a little groove for you to place your finger to magnetize your nail polish.

Overall my thoughts for this polish are fair. They are cheaper than the ones that the Icing sells. These also come with 3 designs rather than just the one that the Icing has. The Icing magnetic nail polishes have the magnet over the nail polish cap. I will post the link to the Icings Magnetic nail polish. I'm sure that once I practice more the designs will look alot better. Until then thanks for stopping by:)

Sally Girl Eyeshadow Look

Sally Girl Quad


If you are new to my blog......welcome! I also must say that I love makeup but I also don't like paying a fortune for it either. Hopefully that once I get a job (once my son starts school) I'll be able to splurge every once in a while. Until then, I am a drug store type of cosmetic buying person. I don't mind at all, especially when I can use coupons. I love coupons!!!!
Anyways, today was a little free day for me. My husband took my son to the movies. I took off to the gym and did the cycling class. Wow if you have never done that before,please give it a try. It is so amazing! I love it! After class, I headed to Target unfortunately, they were revamping their beauty section and boxes and shopping carts were all over the place. I picked up a Rimmel eye pencil on clearance for only .99 cents after my coupon.I left the store and headed next door to Sally's Beauty Supply. I found this Sallys Girl quad for only $.99 cents. as well. I don't really wear these type of colors to often. I prefer dark and bold. I grabbed it any ways and headed home. After a quick shower, I decided to do my makeup. Even more so because my husband was off today and I wanted to look semi decent for him. So this is the look I came up with using the Sally Girl quad.They dint have names but this is the number on the back 388472. Thanks for stopping by.. Hope you come back. Here is the tutorial for this look.

February Make A Date Crave Box-REVIEW

Being a stay at home mom, there are responsibilities that I am completely in charge of. One thing that I honestly dread and can't stand to do is ironing clothes. I try hard to make sure all jeans and shirts are hung as soon as the laundry is done. One special item of clothing is my sons Taekwondo uniform. I do my best to keep it clean in order for him to look his finest everyday. This Downy Wrinkle Releaser helps me do just that. It takes the wrinkles out and keeps his uniform smelling and looking great. I love it!

Amore Pacific Treatment Cleansing Foam and Moisture Bound Skin Energy Hydration Delivery System



I really enjoyed using the cleanser. A small dab is all you need. Even the amount shown on the picture was more than enough. This cleanser really makes your face feel and look clean. It even takes off any left over  eye makeup from the night before. The smell was so nice and soft. That was the best part for me. The hydrating spray was nice as well. The mist is very fine. I have not used it long enough to notice any difference.

E Boost all natural orange flavor


I did not like this at all. I can not stand any thing that has that has that diety (don't think that's a word) taste.I guess that would be the stevia in it. I thought that I did not stir it enough but the taste was the same after stirring a lot. I would not buy it or drink it even if I needed a boost.
thinkThin peanut butter bar

This bar was actually very good. The peanut butter was so good. It almost tasted like a real soft peanut butter cookie. I was only able to eat half of the bar because it is really rich and filling. I have tried other bars that are almost unbearable to eat but I eat anyways to try to lose weight or keep me from eating to much. Those usually are really dry and I can taste all the minerals and diet stuff  in them. These just taste good. I have not tried the chocolate dipped mixed nuts bar yet. I'll save that one for another busy day.

Bic Mark It permanent markers

What can I say, who doesn't like markers? I think everyone loves markers. I have one on my calender to mark when certain coupons expire. I have one in my coupon binder to circle the items I might want to purchase. I have one in my car just in case I have to mail out a package. I have one in my craft box. The last 2 I am saving just in case I lose one of the other four. I love them

Overall my Crave Box was awesome. I would not put anymore mix energy mix drink in them. I think alot of other companies are doing the same. Since I love nail polish and makeup, I would not mind a current nail polish by Nubar or OPI. Spring is almost here and a nice non shimmer bronzer would be perfect. I am a simple type of girl and CraveBox never disappoints,so whatever y'all decide for next month box, I am sure it will be amazing!!
