Mayfield Icecream

I received two coupons and scoop from Mayfield Dairy courtesy of Influenster to try this summer.  What was really cool is that Harris Teeter had a sale on Mayfield icecream and I ended up getting 4 free icecream half gallons to REALLY dig in and test.  I have ALWAYS loved Mayfield,  Moose Tracks is my all time favorite icecream.  The vanilla icecream is so creamy, the dark chocolate is so bitter sweet and my favorite part is the peanut butter cups in it.

I celebrated National Icecream month by just enjoying a bowl at night after putting the kids to bed.  It was my ME time.  The cats even enjoyed it with me :)  Thanks Influenster and Mayfield.  You made my summer a blast!

Dessange Paris California Blonde Collection

I received the Dessange Paris California Blonde collection free from Influenster to try and review.  After I got this in the mail I was highly impressed.  The shampoo wasn't my all time favorite smell but it wasn't horrible  (I'm pregnant right now, so smells are kinda weird at the moment.  LOL)  But the quality of the shampoo and conditioner was amazing!  They both retail at and in stores for $9.99.  Also in my box was the California Blonde CC Creame.  It is a purple colored apply and rinse creame that fights brassiness of bleached blonde hair.  I've used a product like this in my
past bleaching endeavors, so I wasn't shocked by the color (as probably some people would be)

After leaving it in your hair for about 10 minutes, it leaves your blonde locks vibrant and BLONDE. The CC Creame retails at Target for 11.99.

I would highly recommend this product to any bleached blondes out there looking to make sure their locks are BRIGHT!  :)

Sally Hansen #CSMTKO aka: The Sally Hansen 2014 Voxbox

I LOVE getting my voxboxes from Influenster.  When one comes in the mail, I feel like a kid again on Christmas morning.  I get even MORE excited when the box is something GIRLY, like NAIL POLISH!!!!

I recently received the Sally Hansen 2014 Voxbox.  It included 3 nail polishes:

Jaded (#540):

A light aqua color, perfect for spring/summer

Pat on the Black (#510):

A deep plum color, perfect for fall/date night

Red My Lips (#470):

The perfect pinky red nail polish!

These new formulas claim to "Have it All!" with 7 benefits in one bottle.
*Base Coat
*Growth Treatment
*Top Coat
*Chip Resistant
*Gel Shine Finish

And BONUS!!!  With the "Flawless Finish Brush" you get the PERFECT salon Mani!!!

I have fake nails on right now, so I can't honestly say how true the Strengthener or the Growth Treatment are, but the rest of what these powerhouses claim is TRUE! My favorite benefit is the SHINE.  Oh man do these suckers look like GLASS!!!

OH!  And another bonus!  This polish dries SUPER QUICK!!!!

DISCLAIMER: I received this product complimentary from Influenster for testing purposes.

Rimmel Scandaleyes Retro Glam Mascara Review

Rimmel Scandaleyes Retro Glam Mascara!

I feel privileged to be able to try this mascara before it even hits the stores thanks to Rimmel and Influenster (I received it for free to try and review)!!!! And let me tell you first....THIS MASCARA IS GREAT!!!  It's a very light weight formula, that doesn't clump and is EXTREMELY pigmented.  This mascara seriously is awesome.  The brush on it gives great coverage and with it's design of being large on top, small in the middle and large again helps you reach those hard to get to lashes on the inner top corner and all those fine bottom lashes.

Great brush design helps get in those hard to reach places! :)

Nice sleek packaging

Just a little eye liner, a neutral shadow and some Rimmel Retro Glam Mascara created this simple 2 minute look.  (I have extremely SHORT lashes)

Dr. Scholl's® For Her Cozy Cushions

I received the Influenster Rose Voxbox on Halloween day, and inside were these amazing Dr. Sholls For Her Cozy Cushions inserts.  If anyone knows me, they know how much my feet HURT constantly.  If it isn't my planters fasciitis, then it's my heel spur, if it's not my heel spur is my ankles.  In other words, I have BAD FEET, so any extra comfort added to my shoes is a big bonus in my book.  These inserts did just that.

Not only are these Cozy Cushions comfortable, but they are really warm and fuzzy!!!!  They give a boring, plain boot a little something extra.  I just slid them inside my new favorite pair of boots, and voila!  Instant awesomeness!  I would highly recommend these inserts to anyone.


I wear a size 9/10 and they fit perfectly without any cutting.

Full outfit with my new and improved boots thanks to Dr. Sholls and Influenster.

*Disclaimer* I received this product free to try from Influenster and Dr. Sholls.

My Slim-Fast Strawberries ’N’ Cream Shake Experience from Influenster

It's that time again :)  I received yet another amazing box from Influenster!  This time it was a Slimfast Shake in Strawberries N' Cream, a cute, plastic Martini Glass and some really awesome drink recipes.  Here's the video of me opening it.

I really wanted to try the Cocktail instead of the Mocktail, so I put my feelings towards alcohol aside (LOL) and texted my hubby to bring home Pineapple and Strawberries after he got off work. So, he finally got home after midnight (Perfect time for a cocktail, right?  HAHA).

I set out all the ingredients I needed and got ready for my own little "Hawaiian PAR-TAY"

I followed the recipe:

I ended up using canned pineapple instead of fresh, but it was still good.  I even added a little bit more of the juice because I absolutely LOVE Pineapple juice.

(Pineapple Slices....YUM)

After I blended for a bit, I had this Yummy Cocktail to look forward to:

It ended up making enough for 2 cocktails.  It's extremely tasty and you would NEVER KNOW that it was made from Slimfast.  It's also comforting that I can drink this for a lot less calories than a regular Pina-Colada :)

Enjoying my Cocktail at Midnight :D

All in all, this was a very good experience :)  I would give it another try for sure, but I think my next one will for sure be the Cappuccino one because a girl's gotta have her coffee ;) 

If you would like to try this, or any of the other cocktails I mentioned in my video above, please follow this link:

Broadway Nails imPRESS Press-on Manicure: imPRESS has really IMPRESSED me :)

I have an extremely bad habit of biting my nails.  No matter what I do I bite them.  Also, living in Tucson, my nails are very brittle and dry, so having something quick and easy to allow my nails to actually look good is awesome.  This is my 2nd time trying them, and once again, they haven't failed to impress me ;)  They are great for a night out on the town and last a pretty long time.  They don't chip and look amazing.  And being a mom of 2, who has time to wait for nail polish to dry much less go to the nail salon. This time around I received the Space Cadet pattern in my Spring Voxbox from Influenster and imPRESS for free to try out and review.  :)  Salon manicure in seconds - NO glue - No drying time - Rivals the best gel polish - Won’t damage nails - Easy removal - Lasts up to a week.  Can't get any cooler than that :)
