10 Things I'm Thankful For

1. We've booked our upcoming vacation to Myrtle Beach and I'm so excited!

2. The convenience of online shopping...let's be honest, I can't help myself.

3. Working for and with amazing, passionate people. My coworkers inspire me and push me to do even more and I'm so grateful for that.

4. Target sandals. The closest thing to flip flops I can wear to wrok, affordable and so fashionable.

5. My family, they make me laugh and feel safe.

6. That my husband and I are on the same work schedule. He used to work nights but the past year has been amazing having him home for dinner. It's the little, and not so little, things.

7. That I’m being given new tasks at work to expand my project works. This is putting me in line for bigger and better things!

8. My dog, he always makes my list!!!

9. For a supportive husband who forces me to take care of myself…not just everyone else!

10. Supportive bloggers like Katherine over at Katherine's Ccorner. She has helped me at various points in my blogging as a newbie and she's wonderful. Check out her linky party now to see some of the great blogs that have been inspiring me lately!

What're you thankful for? It can be so easy to complain about little things or to just not acknowledge all the great things we have around us. Comment below at least 1 thing you're grateful for!

Unboxing & Review: Influenster VowVoxBox

Welcome back! Today I wanted to share with you the most recent VowVoxBox sent to me from Influenster. Influenster is a great site that sends you free products to try and honestly review…emphasis on FREE. I love this site because I do love reviewing products to help you all in your decision on what to try and what may or may not work for you.

The VowVoxBox was really exciting for me because it's a mix of beauty, nails, skincare and handy little items like the TideToGo pen. I have a few of these hanging around my house and I love them. I have one in my purse at all times because it never fails, I will always spill something on my new shirt or get ink on my jeans (yes that happened just a few hours ago). Such is life. The TideToGo was a great addition to this box because it’s something I know I love and will continue to use and repurchase.

My last post was a review on the Pure Silk Shave Cream so I won’t bore you and repeat. Just check out the previous post!

I was excited to try the #EcoTools Pure Complexion Facial Sponge because I know there are several high end versions and drugstore ‘dupes’. I was mesmerized by the rough texture that becomes soft when moistened. The sponge serves as a great exfoliator for sensitive skin. 

I added different face cleansers from Mario Badescu cleansing gel to Neutrogena face wash and really enjoy it. It does take a little while for the sponge to soften with water however, not long enough to really get annoyed. I’d definitely recommend this product if you’re looking for a deeper cleanse than you can give with just your fingers.

The one item I was beyond eager to try was the Olay Regenerist Luminous Tone Perfecting Cream. Full sized this cream is $30+ at the drugstore. The packaging is beautiful as you can see but lets get down to business. I won’t go into too much detail since I might do a separate blog post/YouTube review but let me tell you: I reallllllly like this face cream.

I’m a huge skin care nut and love trying new things. I don’t have to worry much since my skin isn’t sensitive, thumbs up for my face! Creamy, silky, moisturizing, I just love this stuff. Warning, you only need a little dab for your entire face. At over $30, you don’t want to waste this product. But I definitely think it’s worth it if you’re willing to shell out the money. It is pricey for drugstore but honestly better than anything I’ve tried from the drugstore. #BestBeautiful

The last item I received was the Sally Hansen Complete Salon Manicure Polish in Barracuda. Love love love! I got so many compliments when I wore this beautiful light sky blue! I always use a base and top coat but even then some polishes don’t last long. This line from Sally Hansen usually lasts 5-6 days on my nails. Again, love!

I hope this was helpful for you guys. It does take time to use, test, review, post etc. for each product and build points on Influenster but I think it’s totally worth it if you have the time (and energy). I was so excited to get these products and to have actually liked them all is an extra bonus! Comment your email address below if you want the link to join.
