Rimmel London Glam Mascara Scandal Eyes

Received this product complimentary from Influenster (RoseVoxBox). First, the most important part! This charm retails as under $13 which is outstanding for such an amazing product.
I wore this for the Marine Corps birthday ball earlier this month. I had never tried a Rimmel product before so I was unsure what to expect. The packaging is nice. I like the wider tubes because I get a better grip on it and I feel it's a lot more fun to look at.
My color was extreme black, which was another bonus for me. I LOVE dark mascara. The darker the better in my opinion. Makes my eyes REALLY pop!
I was going to wear false lashes that night but after putting this stuff on, I realized I did not need them!
The only small complaint I have is the mascara stayed wet for about a minute or so. I didn't make sudden eye movements till I was sure it was dry. Once it was dry, it did not flake off and didn't leave my lashes feeling heavy either.
It came off VERY easily with my e.l.f. makeup remover wipes.
I will definitely be buying this product again!
Check stores now! It's already hit the shelves as of this month (November 2013)

Dr. Scholl's® For Her Cozy Cushions

So 2 months ago I received in my Influenster RoseVoxBox a complimentary pair of Dr. Scholl's Cozy Cushion insoles. Right away, I noticed how soft they were. They fit sizes 6-10. I cut mine down to a size 8 using the awesome lines they provided on the back on the insole to cut them down if need be. They retail at $12.49. I placed them inside my favorite boots that I can not wait to pull out once the weather gets chilly out. They fit inside like a GLOVE and keep my feet as warm as one as well. I plan on getting a pair for all my winter foot wear!

Dr. Scholl's® For Her High Heel Insoles

*received this product complimentary from Influenster.*

I 1st tried out this product about 3 years ago. My husband was coming home from a deployment. I had bought these beautiful, sexy boots with a high heel. I knew I was going to be standing for a few hours, waiting outside for him to arrive. There was NO way my feet were going to tolerate that. So I went to the store looking for insoles. I bought these little gems. So glad I bought them. I put them inside my boots and then slipped my feet inside. Heaven!!! My feet felt like I was walking on a floor made of cool gel. But that wasn't going to convince me 100%. The true test would be a few days later, when I had to put those boots on and stand around for who knows how long!
Let me tell you, my feet didn't hurt at all while waiting for my husband. They were SO comfortable, that when I got home, I walking around the house for awhile longer with them on! They were that nice on my feet. 3 years later, those same insoles are in those boots, which I try and wear often. So not only does the product work well at the time, they hold up for a long time.

I received this product to try from Influenster (complimentary of course) a few weeks ago. I popped those babies into a pair of heels with a 3 nice platform heel in the front and a 5 inch thin heel in the back. Just like the boots! Pure bliss!!! I haven't worn those heels out yet but I can already tell they are going to be just as comfortable as my heel boots.

I am not a big one for heels I might add. I am a stay at home Mom so flip flops and slippers are my best friend. However, I do get dressed up to be UNmom-like for a few hours, to go strut what I got with my husband. And when I do, my poor feet to do not want to be subject to painful shoes. These insoles help with that. 
So overall, I highly recommend these insoles to ladies who wear ANY kind of heels. Get them! Go now! :-)

Goody Ouchless Ribbon Elastics

Here's another review for you guys.

*This is another complimentary product I received from Influenster to review*

This wonderful product by Goody. They can be found here


  • Soft, stretchy material that looks beautiful on the wrist or in the hair!
  • From America’s #1 elastics brand, Goody® Ouchless®
  • Unique knot style hair ties are perfect for personalizing or dressing up your look.
I LOVE these! I have really long hair so I always have a hard time with finding a hair band that will hold my hair securely. These work great for when I go to the gym. While I am on the elliptical and my hair is bouncing all over the place, these hair ribbons keep my hair in place. I love the cute colors and the great material. They are not your ordinary hair band in that they actually have a cute appearance. They can be worn around your wrist without giving the appearance of a hair band. My daughters absolutely love them as well! Thanks Influenster for the wonderful, FREE product to try!

Changing it up!

It's been a long while since I've been on here. Life kind of catches up with you and before you know it, a whole year has just flown by. I am going to try to keep up with this blog a little more.

I am trying something a little new today and writing about something other than every day life.

This year I have REALLY gotten into makeup. Yes, I am almost 30 years old and finally understanding the true concept of makeup and the true art form it is.

Along with LOVING makeup, I also LOVE saving money/getting things for free. A few months ago I signed up for this company called Influenster (online). They send you free products to try. All you have to do is try them out and then give your honest feedback on Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, your blog, YouTube, Vine, and/or whatever other online social media site you may be a member of. I don't do much on YouTube as far as posting and I don't have a Vine account so I thought I'd use this blog to write about the products I have reviewed and how I feel about the item(s). And by the way, all these items in each VoxBox (this one is the SunVoxBox/SunkissedVoxBox are free! I received them as a complimentary gift. I did not pay them for it and I am not getting paid to do this review or any other review!

This blog is going to be about the Olay Fresh Effects collection, specifically the Fresh Effects BB cream (in fair to light).

The first day I got my VoxBox, I right away opened up the Olay Fresh Effects BB cream. I was so excited!!! The tube is a very convenient size. I have a few other BB creams and their packaging is kind of lumpy and not very "throw in your purse and go" size. The design on the packaging kind of goes along with the name. It's a very fresh design. White with light green and yellow colors. Very pretty. Now onto the color. OMG! SOOOOO pretty!!! I am in love with the smell. Very fresh and sweet. But not overpowering. It has 15 SPF in it but smells nothing like sunscreen! Phew, because who wants to smell that all day on their face?? Olay Fresh Effects {BB Cream!} offers six skincare benefits in one step The consistency is thick but not like a paste. It was a light foundation color but once I out it onto my face, it just blended so well into my skin. I can wear a light to medium coverage in foundation so I was a little worried this would be too light for my face. Not the case at all! The coverage is nice. It's just enough. I can still see my freckles, which is always a plus for me. I am not trying to hide those precious beauties. It did cover up the redness from some of my "it's about that time of the month" pimples. If I was going to wear this for a night out (which I plan to soon), I would still have to wear my undereye concealer  because it didn't cover up my dark undereye circles. I decided to put the BB cream on my face the day I was going to the gym. That would be the true test. 60 minutes of cardio, sweating like a pig, would be the true test to see if it would run off my face (no pun intended). Nope! After all that hard work, the BB cream was still on my face, with no sweat lines! Yay! There was a little on the towel when I dried my face from sweat but that's to be expected. I want it to come off when I wash my face, right? I am not looking for a face dye :-)

I just got this product last weekend and since I am a stay at home Mom, I don't get to wear makeup often and haven't been able to really try it out. But, this is going to be my go-to BB cream for the summer. It's wonderful. I am glad I got to try this wonderful product. Thank you Influenster! Head over to Olay on FB,,, and Influenster on FB! Check out all these sites have to offer! Also check out to buy from there! :-) Hurray for #nofilter kind of days!
