Scentsy Plumage Plug In Warmer Review

I was asked by a friend of mine Michelle Smith, who sells Scentsy to do a review in exchange for a free plug in Warmer of my choice.  So of COURSE I said yes and chose the Plumage Plug in Warmer :)  This Warmer has a gorgeously etched porcelain feather that glows against a smooth sea of peacock green.


When lit, you actually see a warm glow illuminating from the feather!  It's gorgeous!  I have really enjoyed it.  The warmer plate can hold NO MORE than 3 Scentsy pieces from a bar.  The only complaint I have with this warmer is it gets a little hot to the touch.  Not enough to
BURN you per say, but enough to let you know you are touching it, more so than my
Larger warmers that I own.  It takes a light bulb specially designed for it from Scentsy, so you have to order one if yours burns out for $1.

This little beauty retails for $20 and you can buy it on my friend Michelle Smith's Scentsy Site.  Host a Party, and you could get it and a bunch more for FREE or 1/2 Price!  Well worth it!

And now for some LOVELY pictures of my Warmer!

Lights Off, Beautiful, inviting GLOW

Hot to the Touch, but not enough to BURN you.  Also great comparison of how big the warmer is vs my hand.

Oh Goody! I Got an Amazing Goody from Goody!!!!

LOL, that title was a mouth full!  And a huge play on words!  But it's the truth!  I got an amazing little goody from GOODY hair products in my 2012 Beauty Blogger Voxbox from Influenster.  I got the set of Spin Pins that make the Messy Bun a breeze to do!  And seriously, they work awesome.  I usually have to use about 10 bobby pins to achieve what these little babies can do with just two of them!  :)  And they don't "Lock" in your hair like two crossed over bobby pins do, making it super easy to take down you hair after a night out when you are ready for bed!  I love these little guys and highly recommend them to anyone with long hair :D

Two Is the Magic Number!  It's all you need to create a cute hair style!

Double Messy bun!!!!  Love the Goody Spin Pins!

Not-ta Momma! And Proud of it! (Not Your Mother's Smooth Moves Frizz Control Cream)

Thanks to my 2012 Beauty Blogger Voxbox I got from Influenster and a product included in it from Not Your Mother's brand, I now have found a new Frizz Control cream!  Not Your Mother's Smooth Moves Frizz Control Hair Cream is amazing!  It smells great (Like a tropical island due to the Coconut yumminess that flows out of the bottle when you use it).  It has a nice and thick texture, but doesn't weigh down your hair!  It's also not sticky which is a bonus and leaves your hair feeling extremely soft while controlling crazy fly aways!  I highly recommend this product!  So give it a try!  :D

Smooth Moves Frizz Control Cream :)

Not Your Mother's Smooth Moves Frizz Control Cream used on my hair makes it soft and manageable!  It's an awesome product!

Smexy Lashes that are EASY to apply!

I think one of my favorite things out of my 2012 Beauty Blogger Voxbox from Influenster was my Kiss Nails Ever PRO Lashes.  These lashes were amazing!  They were very full and luscious and super easy to apply thanks to the wand that came in the glue and the "tweezer lash applicator".  Also, Kiss has made it to where it's easy to removed them lashes from the packaging so you don't damage the lash and lose it's natural eye curve.  They have seriously thought of EVERYTHING when creating this amazing product!  A+ and I highly recommend them!

Nice packaging lets you see what you are getting.

Easy directions on how to remove lashes!

Slits help to remove lashes without damaging them

Very full looking lashes!


NYC New York Color IndividualEyes Custom Compact Review

This was a nice surprise to get in my 2012 Influenster Beauty Blogger Voxbox.  The NYC New York Color IndividualEyes Custom Compact came with everything you need to create the PERFECT smokey eye, and it's made for YOUR eye color.  There was only one problem with mine....I got the "FOR BROWN EYES" palette and I have blue eyes.  Even with this hick up, it still created a BEAUTIFUL neutral smokey eye.  It came with everything you needed.  Primer, Illuminator, Lid, crease and highlight colors!  A very nice palette and with retailing for only $4.99, you can't beat it!

Extremely nice Palette!!!!
This is the BROWN EYES palette

The palette in use!!!!!  Very nice colors.

Mini Candle, GIANT Scent!

I received a free mini candle in my Beauty Blogger Voxbox from  Influenster and Bath and Body Works . It was a White Barn candle in the scent Nutmeg and Spice and OMG did it smell amazing.  Yes, I put that in the past tense because it's already gone, and I loved it so much, I went out and bought another!  LOL.  A three wick this time around so it'll last longer!  :)  The mini candles are normally $3.50, but as of right now, Bath and Body works is having a sale, and you can get 2 for $5!!!!  Great deal!  They make GREAT stocking stuffers!!!!  The larger 3 wicks are on sale right now also!  2 for $20!  They are normally $20 a piece!  GREAT DEAL!  I ended up buying 2 large 3 wick candles the other day (One of which I actually got another Nutmeg and Spice) and one in the scent Merry Cookie!  I also purchased a 3 wick candle snowflake holder.  For my mom's Christmas present, I got her 2 mini candles and a mini candle holder that looks like a snowman!  SUPER CUTE!!!!

Mini Candle I Received for FREE in my Voxbox!

Two 3 Wick Candles I went back and purchased after receiving my mini candle.  Complete with a 3 wick Snowflake holder!

Ipsy Vs Birchbox October 2012

Hello My Beautiful Bombshells.  Thought I'd do a combo blog about both Ipsy and Birchbox October 2012.  Both were pretty decent this month.  One was better than the other by far!!  Here is my Vlog Review about it, and then I'll post some more pictures down below.  (Sorry, my vlog had to go on my regular channel since My Atomic account won't allow me to upload videos longer than 10 minutes as of yet)

All in all, Ipsy was AMAZING this month.  $10 for $70 worth of product plus a cute bag!  Birchbox was meh.  I ended up trying the Luna bar.  It was WAY to lemony for me, so my 2 year old is eating it right now, and my 6 year old is going to be given the lip balm because it's WAY too chocolatey for me.  But, it did FEEL great on my lips. :) The only item out of both I have yet to try is the skin oil.  But I'll give it a go tonight before bed.
Out of both, I think my favorite things are:
The Essie nail polish (From the BB), the Eyeliner (Ipsy), Lip Gloss (Ipsy) and the Mascara (Ipsy).
Ipsy Bag: Be A Bombshell Liner, Coastal Scents Quad Set 8, Couture Color Pequi Oil for Hair, The Balm Cosmetics "What's Your Type?" The body builder mascara, Lip Bomb Glossy Lacquer Stain

Coastal Scents Quad, Be a Bombshell Liner and The Balm What's Your Type Mascara

Mirenesse Lip Bomb Glossy Lacquer Stain in FULL FORCE

Lip Balm after blotting.

Birchbox: Luna Bar in LemonZest, Sprout Lip Balm Flights, Marie Veronique Organics Body Oil, Joanna Vargas Daily Serum and Essie Goop Pick in Size Matters.

EBOOST Your Body!

Ever just felt BLAH and needed an energy boost?  If you are like me, you don't want to drink an Energy drink because they give you the jitters.  I hate that feeling and like NATURAL energy boosts.  Really glad Influenster and EBOOST sent me a sample in the 2012 Naturals Voxbox to try.  It was super easy to use.  Just get a glass of water, pour in the EBOOST powder, mix and drink.  Then you are well on your way to feeling a boost of energy without those annoying jitters!  It has a slight fizziness to it as well and, while orange isn't my FAVORITE taste, it was good enough to drink :)    I would like to try the other flavors though so I could find which is my favorite.  It also comes in Acai Berry and Pink Lemonade flavors.  I am thinking I would like the Pink Lemonade the best :)

You can buy EBOOST online HERE.



Drink and Enjoy! :)

Soft as a Baby's Bottom......

Thanks to Influenster's 2012 Naturals Voxbox and to Shea Moisture Baby, I was introduced to the Organic Raw Shea Butter baby Eczema Bar Soap and I am IN LOVE!!!

We live in AZ where it's always DRY.  Using this leaves mine and my kids skin feeling super soft and clean.  And it smells very natural which is a GOOD thing!  It contains Shea butter (which deeply moisturizes and heals dry skin with it's high content of fatty acids and vitamins.), Aragon Oil (which is high in vitamin E.  This rare oil softens and renews the skin), and Frankincense & Myrrh (which was given as a gift of beauty throughout history, these precious extracts repair and rejuvenate the skin, and also gives the soap a delightful smell.).

Practicing Good Hygiene and moisturizing at the same time :)

Even our cat likes the smell!!!!  :)
