Influenster Box

OK so I told you guys I would let you all know about influenster if you haven't already heard of it. Its a website that randomly chooses people that have signed up to review certain products based off the badges they unlock. I was chosen for the Mom VoxBox because the drawing happened around mothers day. Everything is free and you just test out all the products they have sent you and either write reviews about them on your blog or make videos about your opinions on YouTube. The products they send are not sample size, they are the full size products so you can use it more than once to really get a feel for the product and see what its like weeks or a month after you have received it. They do these random drawings frequently so there are new products being reviewed. From things about beauty, motherhood, being green, pet lovers, and many more. Really hoping that I get chosen for another box related to beauty so I can let you know my thoughts on that!

The Many Uses Of Ivory

I recently received the Mom VoxBox from Influenster, if you ladies don't know what this is I will be doing a blog all about the box soon. One of the many products in this box was a bar of Ivory soap. As a girl that loves her makeup and makeup brushes I am ALWAYS looking for ways to wash my brushes without them getting crunchy or stiff or leaving a harsh residue that will irritate my skin. Ivory has by far been the best bar of soap I have used for this purpose! It didn't leave my hands dry or slimy felling after I washed them like some do. I have already planned on buying many more of these bars to wash my makeup brushes! And as a mom I always love products that are all natural, and this soap is 99.94% pure ingredients. I have already told  a bunch of people that this is a great soap and has so many different uses! Please ladies try it out you will LOVE it!

Dolce Vitta Hair Extension Review

I ordered my Dolce Vitta Hair Extensions in Light Brown #8 in 120 grams. My natural hair is on the thinner side so the 120 gram set was perfect for me. When I got the extensions in I was so amazed at how soft the extensions were, and the clips were a very good quality. The clips had a rubber grip on the bottom that keep the hold on your hair so there is no slipping. I have had my extensions since April so I have had time to really wear them and make sure the quality is good. I have even dyed the extensions and it didnt change the feel of the extensions, they were just as soft and silky as the day got them. To keep your extensions in the best possible condition wash them as little as possible and don't use product on them if at all possible. I have owned extensions and only washed them twice over a year, most extensions last anywhere from 6-8 months but if you dont use product and dont wash them they wont dry out and can stay  in the best condition. The only thing negative I have to say about the extensions is they clips arent sewn on the wefts very well. In just the 2 months that I have had them 3 of the clips have come unsewn, but that is an easy fix. They dont knot up in the nape of your neck like another extension brand I bought a while ago. I would definately recommend these extensions to anyone that is looking for a little change up with their hair...more volume or length.

Shopping Fun HAUL

This is a collective Haul...things that I have purchased the past 2 weekends. The first pictures consists of everything from Ulta except for one thing, and that is from Arbonne. I got the Arbonne Sheer Glow Highlighter, its a very subtle highlight. Then we have NYX stay matte but not flat powder foundation, NYX shine killer, essence stay with me longlasting lip gloss in the shade 'my favorite milkshake', essence stay with me long lasting lip gloss in the shade 'candy bar', essence lipstick in the shade 'sparkling romance', NYX lipstick in the shade 'NYX', NYX lipstick in the shade 'narcissus', NYX mascara Le Frou Frou, NYX blush in the shade 'peach'. Then I got a tank from H&M and the black and silver sunglasses from there as well. The pink and black pair came from Charming Charlies. Then this weekend I went to Ulta yet again..LOL! I joke that I'm there as much as some of the employees! This time I picked up some Dry Shampoo, the Rimmel stay matte powder since the NYX is already hitting pan and I have only had it for a week now. I wanted to try  the Maybelline Super Stay 24hr makeup! its NEW and I'm a sucker for anything that says NEW! I also picked up Maybelline Line Stiletto, its by  far my favorite liquid eyeliner! I really wish they would come out  with colors...because I would definitely pick up a teal, blue, and purple! I also got the Rimmel Scandaleyes, and have loved it so far! The brush is so thick and gets EVERY lash! Then I stopped into Old Navy and picked up this cute shirt and best part it was on clearance! I NEVER find anything that I ever want in the clearance section of ANY store! I stopped into H&M and picked up the necklace to go with the tank top since it looks like a rope and the tank has a nautical look since its a navy blue stripe. I also got my Sedona Lace brushes in that I ordered. I ordered the 480 round top powder brush, the 928 flat top powder brush, the 602 angled top powder brush, and the EB09 universal blender brush. The flat top brush is perfect for applying foundation and the angled brush is great for contouring, and the round brush can really buff out concealer and blend it all in. and the blender brush works better than the MAC 217.

Day 30 of My Beauty Challenge

And the last day of my beauty challenge! My favorite piece of jewelry  isn't something crazy expensive...its not something passed down from generations...its a watch! I have never found jewelry that I enjoy to wear around my wrist, but that has definitely changed and it all started with this watch! For a wedding gift my husband asked me what I wanted...and after buying me my Cartier perfume and body lotion for the big day I told him a watch. Yes he gave me that crazy look, that he was going to spend anywhere from $500 for something that I would NEVER wear! But out of all the watches that we looked at I decided to go with something that would match all my outfits. I choice a silver fossil watch called the Stella Stainless Steel, I like the look of bigger watch faces since my wrists are so small. But this watch changed my desire to wear "arm candy"! Every time we go somewhere I always want to look at the watches.

Day 29 of My Beauty Challenge

Well because I live in Illinois and we have those crazy seasons my favorite drink does change. In the colder months its definitely a Pinot Noir wine, I haven't found a Pinot Noir that I don't like so I wont specify a brand. And in the summer since we love to sit out by my parents pool its definitely Pina Colada. Coconut is my favorite flavor of any kind of frozen drink, and when you add coconut flavored rum...doesn't get much better than that!

Day 28 of My Beauty Challenge

If I could live one place it definitely have to be Florida...southern Florida! Clearwater area would be great! We spent our honeymoon there and I fell in love with the whole vibe. The location is perfect because you are close to the ocean, which I LOOVE, and so close to all the shopping! It was really just perfect. I am not one of those people that need all the seasons either. I can really do with out all that snow, The fact that it doesn't normally get below the 40's or 50's is just great! I live in the Chicago-land area and our winters can be FIERCE!

OK so my son is going to kill me one day from all the embarrassing photo's we have of him. And thanks to FB they will forever be available for everyone to see! Every summer we would spend in Folly Beach South Carolina. And the pictures we have from him when he was younger are priceless...but this one has to be the best! No matter how many times I look at it I crack up laughing! Kids really do make the BEST faces when they are trying to get everyones attention!

Day 26 of My Beauty Challenge

The item that is on my wish list is a tie between 2 things. The First is the Naked palette, I love the colors of the first one so much, there is just so much that you can do with those colors. Its one of the best palettes I have seen, can make a look casual or dressy, day time or night look. Its the perfect palette. And the second would be Cinderella extensions! I have a friend who does hair for a living and have been meaning to get this done. But everytime I have extra money it seems like something happens that I need to spend it on something more important! But those are the 2 beauty items I definetly want to purchase in the next year!

I have been branching out a little more with my shades of lipstick. I used to always stay closer to the nude and light pink shades. But I have been buying much more of brighter colors, I haven't found myself buying the bright reds or fuchsias, yet, but I plan on trying pretty much all shades.

Day 24 of My Beauty Challenge

Because I get home and exercise right away I already had my work out clothes on...but took a quick picture of my makeup. But the pictures of the clothes are what I was wearing. I wore very plain shirt with just a little detail since my eye was dramatic. I used blues, greens, purples and a highlighter right below my eye brow. My phone camera doesn't really capture the colors very well. I did a smokey eye but using bright colors, except in the outer V of my eye I used a dark blue and deep purple. All the colors I used are from the ELF 144 palette. Then I used my black eyeliner to do a wing. For my lip I used NYX Narcissus, it is a great barbie pink.

Day 23 of My Beauty Challenge

These are the main things I use in my hair, I use 2 different kinds of heat protecter. Both from Matrix, I use the Cera heat thermal-active repair cream when my hair is wet. It really cuts the blow drying time in half, then if I will be straightening or curling my hair I put in the Total Results Iron smoother. If I will be wearing my hair straight I will add John Frieda Frizz Ease Straight Fixation, it does a GREAT job of keeping my hair frizz free and my "babies" at bay. My "babies" are the small hairs around the face, its hard to keep them under control! If I plan on teasing my hair REALLY big that day I will had Pureology Antifade Complex PureVolume to my wet hair. It does a great job of giving me extra volume and body while I blow dry my hair. My hair spray that I top it all off with is BigSexyHair! I can not live with out this, I actually have a small travel size in my purse at all times. And for my weekly/biweekly hair treatments I use a combo of 3 things, Aussie 3 minute miracle One'n Only Argan Oil Oil Treatment, and One'n Only BrazilianTech Keratin Deep Conditioning Treatment. First I put the oil all over my ends, I really drench it, then I will add the Aussie 3 minute miracle all over, and last I use the Brazilian Tech all over as well. I will then get a wet towel and wrap it around my head, make sure its really wrung out. And I will take a blow dryer to the wrapped towel, it gives you that salon chair dryer effect. The warm really helps penetrate your hair without the heat actually touching it because you have the wet towel. Hope you enjoyed my hair products!

Day 22 of My Beauty Challenge

OK so I have 2 things that I can NOT live without. One is a beauty/makeup product and the other is a brush. Yes you heard right a brush! For everyone that knows me knows I LOOOOVE big hair, I back comb my hair everyday...even if its only going into a pony. I have tried those volumizing powders or pomades to get my hair big. But NOTHING does it better or bigger than a good back combing brush. The Denman D3 brush is the BEST back combing/teasing brush I have ever used, and believe me when I say the best because I had tested so many! The other product I just recently purchased but am already obsessed! I have a very oily face and this really does work. It doesn't totally stop my face from being oily but it cuts it down by like 90%! I want to pick up the Stay Matte Not Flat foundation from NYX to use with it and I'm sure I wouldn't be disappointed! So this product is the NYX Shine Killer, I'm really looking forward to testing it out come the hotter days. It is supposed to be almost 90 in the next couple days so it will be put to the test!

Day 21 of My Beauty Challenge


My collection has gotten much smaller in the past year. I have found that I don't buy "new" perfume but the perfume that I continue to wear. In the basket collection I have Twilight Woods from BBW, I had the perfume along with the body spray but I dropped it and it shattered on the floor. The VS Heavenly which I spray after I get out of the shower at night. L'eau D'issey and Romance are my 2 that I wear when I'm not going anywhere special. I have the 3 different playboy perfumes that I don't really wear too often but wanted them, then for my wedding I bought Cartier Baiser Vole and that I wear if I'm going out or have meetings at work. I would really like to expand my perfume collection again since I feel its like lipstick, there is a different scent for every mood or occasion!

Day 20 of My Beauty Challenge

For my hair tools I don't use anything very fancy or expensive. Heat is Heat on your hair, none of it is very good for your hair. So whether you spend $20 on a curling iron or $200 they are both damaging to your hair. My curling irons are just normal drugstore brands with the clips. But I don't use the clips on them, I wrap my hair around the barrel. And as for my straighteners, I have bought the very expensive brands and find that there is no difference. They both straighten my  hair just the same.

Day 19 of My Beauty Challenge

I break this VERY important beauty rule! I do not use a sun block , I love to be tan so on the very other end of this spectrum I use a tanning oil! I use anything Hawaiian Tropic. I love the scent of it and it always leaves my skin very conditioned! Although my daily  face moisturizer has an SPF in it, I try to keep my face out of the sun as much as possible. I don't want any early aging on my face.

Day 18 of My Beauty Challenge

OK I am going to use this as EVERYTHING I use on my body...from my razor to my lotion! Right now I'm using Caress Tahitian Renewal, I just recently made the decision to buy products that are not tested on animals. I already had this and don't want to just throw it away since my money already went to the company. I don't use a shave gel...I know its not great for your skin and very drying to shave with shower gel. But I'm just way to lazy to put on extra steps. After I'm done shaving I exfoliate with my Tree Hut sugar scrub, I love the smell of this scrub! It really just smells like summer! The best part of this scrub is it has no paraffin in it so it doesn't leave your skin waxy feeling. After my shower I will do one of 3 things, for just every day I will put on Aveeno Daily moisturizing lotion (which I will be changing due to the animal testing), if I'm wearing shorts and I want a bit more of a sheen to my skin I will wear Organix Moroccan Argan Oil makes your skin so soft and its a dry oil. And for a night out and I want a super shimmer (and my body dust isn't enough) I use the Beach Sexy Tan Enhancing Shimmer lotion with Tint from Victoria's Secret. And my last thing I do is spray my ENTIRE body with a body mist of whichever scent I chose before getting dressed! I just love to smell good ALL day long! I'm all about smelling good all the time! :)

Day 17 of My Beauty Challenge

My favorite bronzer for my contour is NYX matte bronzer, and for neck and chest area bronzer is the Rimmel natural bronzer. It has a shimmer to it that catches the sun and gives you a sexy look.

Spoiler Alert!

So I have been loving a lot of the my boyfriend/husband does my make-up videos on YT! So I just want to let all of you know that I will be posting a video here on my blog of MY husband doing my makeup. Should be interesting...and VERY funny!

Day 16 of My Beauty Challenge

I'm going to use this as my favorite things that sparkle! well besides my jewelry! ;) I'm not into glitter eyes...but I can really love me a shimmer eye! My favorite body bronzer with a hint of shimmer in it is from Victoria's Secret from their beach sexy line. My favorite eye shadow that has a shimmer in it is Half Baked from Urban Decay, this color is a perfect blender color. You can really use this color for any look. My favorite nail polish with a shimmer or sparkle is OPI Princess Rule! I don't like polish that you can feel the glitter in...feels like sandpaper to me. These are some "sparkly" things that I absolutely LOVE

Day 15 of My Beauty Challenge









Here is a sneak peak in all my beauty drawers and cabinets. I still keep all my makeup in my train case just because I haven't decided what kind of set up I will have room for. Its not convenient in any way, but it works for now until I come up with a system that fits!

Day 14 of My Beauty Challenge

I wash my face every morning and every night. My skin gets so oily all the time, which I'm hoping will help my aging process when I'm much older! :) At night I put the face lotion on...then in the morning I just add my eye creams. First I wash my face, then I pat my face dry...I am especially careful around the eye area. Pulling on that thin layer of sensitive skin can only cause more wrinkles. I then apply Olay total effects intensive restoration treatment, I lightly pat that on with my ring fingers. I allow it to soak in then I apply Olay filling + sealing wrinkle treatment. I started doing the eye treatments early...when I turned 25 because I really don't want to have bad eye creases when I get well into my 40's. VAIN i know! But because I apply primer to my face before I apply makeup my skin doesn't feel tight or dry, not to mention I have oily skin so putting on lotion before my makeup...my makeup would just slide off!

Day 13 of My Beauty Challenge

Courtesy of my sister for Mother's day...she took me to get a mani/pedi! Love her, we had some great sister time. I went for a color that I would NEVER choose normally. I tend to gravitate towards bright colors or deep jewel tones. Not even on my wedding day did I go for a neutral tone, so I thought I would try something new. The color is called It's a Girl by OPI and its a barely there pink, It almost looks like my toes have no polish on them...LOL

Day 12 of My Beauty Challenge


These are my daily products I use in the shower. I use a body scrub everyday to keep my skin as soft as possible. I bought this shampoo and conditioner because it said it was sulfate and paraben free...which it is NOT! A sulfate and paraben free shampoo isn't supposed to lather, and this does...VERY much so. But it also made my hair feel very dry. I use the L'Oreal deep conditioning masque and it helps but I hear that it can cause a build up, I haven't noticed anything. I ordered some new shampoo and conditioner and as that arrives this will be going in the GARBAGE. I only use the face scrub once a week because I don't have a problem with break outs, but I do like to deep clean it once a week to make sure of that.
