#St.IvesSkin wants you to #LiveRadiantly

 

Good ole Influenster! Its been so long since I got some goodies from Influenster. So when I was emailed about a St. Ives voxbox I was so down.  To my wonderful surprised I got some very good goodies!

I got the following products;

  • Even and Bright body wash
  • Refresh and Revive Body lotion
  • Nourished and Smooth Oatmeal scrub and mask

Even and Bright Body wash:

I have actually used the Even and Bright body wash shortly before and really enjoyed the bright and citrus pink grapefruit scent of it. It also lathers really good and cleans nicely and lets face it when you are super tired in the morning its nice to have something like that to wake you up. 

Refresh and Revive Body lotion :

I was surprised by this lotion, as with my experience with lotions they dont really keep my skin moisturized so I was leery.  But this lotion actually did pretty good , it has a calming scent which isn't strong and I feel it doesn't conflict with any body sprays or perfumes. 

Nourished and Smooth Oatmeal Scrub and Mask:

This is a nice thick,creamy face mask or scrub.  In the shower I will put this on my face and let it sit and then rub gently in circles to exfoliate and scrub my face.  My face was smoother and a little more brighter.  This one isn't as harsh as the regular body scrub may be but just right. 

All in all I really enjoyed this #refreshvoxbox by St.Ives ,  Want your own VoxBox? Sign up here its FREE!

Valentines day Gift Idea for YOU & Him

So we all know Valentines day is coming this weekend and many of us ladies are looking for possible gift ideas for our special Mr. , So I was going through blog pics I had taken to edit, I came across those of the new goodies I  just recently got in from Adore Me.  What is it you ask...... well let me share....

Adore Me is this great website ( the ad if playing like crazy on tv) where us lovely ladies can buy super cute panties and bras and ..... lingerie... yes I said it.  They also have accessories and things to wear to bed.  Its involves a monthly fee ( like just fab and all those other monthly clubs) , the price is about $39.95 and you can choose any thing you like and your first set is about $19.95 . 

NOW I know what you may be thinking,  is it quality, is it worth it? and what's the catch?  Good questions, I wasn't into it either, but that darn commercial kept playing and they have a freaking app for apple and andriod so I checked them out, I actually signed up like last year but never bought anything.  I seen a few things, a sale on super cute panties and said why not?!

 

What I do LOVE is the sizing..... they offer petite to PLUS sizes.... YES! I love companies that embrace ALL BODIES. 

Here are some Pros & Cons:

Pros First:

  •  Goodies every month
  • Sizing is petite to plus sizes
  • bras, panties, robes and lingerie
  • Great selection
  • You can skip any month and even 2 months at a time
  • you can get a REFUND if you didn't skip on time! ( my biggest reason for joining)
  • Items are comfortable and fit well for sizes
  • Every 6th set is FREE
  • Mobile app
  • coupons in packages to use for future purchases

Cons Second:

  • $39.95 monthly tag which can get pricey for those of us on budget
  • Not every style is available in all sizes
  • Your cart will fill up quick and price adds up.
  • Have to be VIP member in order to get discounts.

As you can see not many cons huh? I think its worth it and great for those who want to build up their collection or add some new pieces. So far i have been loving this site and have order many items.  

So now that you know the good and the bad , you can easily make your choice, sign up now and get your first set for $19.95 and if you buy before Wednesday February 10th at 1pm you can get your set  just in time for Valentines Day! and if you really are not happy,  then just cancel your membership, which I doubt that you will. 

So tell me ladies.... Wasnt this a great idea or what? 

 

Carols Daughter Sacred Tiare Combing Creme- Did it work?

You get the product and your so excited to use it and you just feel that its going to do so much good things for your hair, your curls are gonna POP and your just excited.  You use the product and your left disappointed that you got your hopes so high and it wasn't all you wanted it to be, 

Sadly that how I felt with this product, let me say that in some ways I do feel that this product works, it does help  when you comb or brush through, it does help with the frizz YET, i felt that it soaked up the moisture that other styling products i use put into my hair.  Thus leaving my hair looking " moisturized: yet feeling dry and not good. 

I love a concept of a "combing creme" I mean a product that can help you comb through curls and also provide extra moisture to the curls is a great thing, I almost feel there is some alcohol somewhere is this product, I used it several times mind you and each time, my hair just felt more dry, AFTER i put in my super moisturizing leave in and styling product. 

Now , this is MY thoughts, some other may have others thoughts when it comes to this product and it can most surely work for many others. I think I  will stop using this product for the fact that I just dont like the feeling of my hair when I use it. 

It retails for $10.00 and can be bought at your local target store.

What do you beauties think?

Molton Brown Vintage 2015 - New Years Luxury

Since it the holidays, its time for last minute shopping for family and friends, yet dont forget about yourself as well.  What about New Years Eve? We all want to look and smell our best when we bring in the new year. Molton Brown London is here just to help you do that exact thing, 

Molton Brown reached out to me to see if I wanted to try and possibly feature Molton Brown London Vintage 2015  Elderflower Boyd Lotion. How can I say no? Its comes in champagne inspired packaging, with the scent of sparkling grapefruit and English elderflower. 

Its a limited edition  body lotion and also comes in a shower gel as well.  It can be purchased at MoltonBrown.com or Nordstrom.com and Saks Fifth Ave , it retails for $44.00 and yes its pricey my beauties but I assure you when you glide this across your skin, you feel you have just been covered in luxury. 

It absorbs well and the scent is noticeable yet not too strong where I dont think it will counteract with your  daily perfume,  The past couple of days I have just been wearing the lotion alone to let the scent shine through.  Your skin will stay moisturized all day and you will have a subtle scent on you all day. 

Tell me what you think beauties, and bring in the New Year smelling completely amazing!

Did you know that Squarespace now has this cool thing that lets you make a free simple logo?!! Yes I know, Squarespace continues to just wow our pink and purple socks off.  I .JUST .CANT

FYI the above logo was made with the logo maker.

I discovered this gem when last week I was looking at redoing my logo and the whole website. I was In squarespace just looking around and came across the logo feature I clicked on and magic appeared.  You just type in your name and then click on a simple symbol or no symbol if you choose but symbols are gangster so why not?

Now dont get me wrong, you cant make a super elaborate logo with all the bells and whistles, its just a simple logo  with your name and a symbol nothing special, yet for those of us who like simple this works out perfectly.  I dont need fancy. Be mindful it is $10 bucks a logo BUT if your a squarespace user then its..... FREE.. Thanks to the blogger gods. 

Pros:

  • Simple and easy to use
  • Nice array of fonts to use
  • You can search for symbols
  • Free to squarespace users 
  • Make as many as you wish
  • Email a copy of logo and you can download 3 different versions
  • You can change position, color and size. 

Cons:

  • Very limited 
  • Generic
  • Limited in fonts
  • Limited in symbols
  • $10.00 fee for non square space users

All in all its great for those bloggers who are starting out and those who need a quick, easy and nice looking logo.  Yet if you want something more, hit up a graphic designer or go somewhere else.
