J'Adore Voxbox

As being a member of Influenster I was able to review their Jadore Voxbox and it contained so many goodies and here is what I got:
Red Rose Simply Indulgent Teas ($4.49 for 20 tea bags) I got the flavors Lemon Chiffon which is decafe and 4 Crème Caramel. Which are some new flavors I never expected from Red Rose Tea!
Hershey Kisses Milk Chocolate in a Family Size 18.5 oz. bag. (Retails $5.29) these Hershey Kisses where in the colors pink, red and silver for Valentine’s Day and I shared some with my family and made kiss cookies, my favorite.
Vaseline Men Spray Lotion (Retails $7.99) this is great for the winter dry air and my husband has been suffering from severe dry skin so this arrived at the perfect time. All you do is spray and it absorbs in seconds to tackle any dryness fast.
Boots Botanical Shine Away Ionic Clay Mask (Retails $9.39) this is a deep cleansing mineral rich clay mask. Designed to be used on normal skin and is also unscented and hypo-allergenic. This is used to clean skin deeply and absorbs excess oil. The ocean clay exhibits a negative electrical charge which aides in drawing out impurities. Will not over dry and skin leaving it smoother and softer.
Kiss Looks So Natural Lashes (Retails $3.99) these lashes make you look like you are not wearing any lashes as the seamless blend with your own natural lashes; Also, lightweight and comfortable.
Frizz Ease 3 Day Straight Flat iron  Spray (Retails $ 9.99) this is heat activated formula wraps each strand in long lasting straightness for up to 3 days without weighing hair down. Infused with Keratin, protects against heat damage and blocks frizz giving your hair a glossy, smooth and swinging with body.
So that is everything. I really enjoyed the Hershey’s Kisses of course as I am a chocoholic regardless of how much heartburn it gives me. The Boots clay mask left my face feeling softer, Frizz Ease helped keep my hair in place instead of flying around with this nice winter dry air.

I Coffee

I recently was able to review Icoffee, this is a coffee maker that uses stem brew technology so no more bitter or acidic coffee and how it works is you brew your coffee like normal and it plays a song by Mozart or you can choose to shut that feature off and then it brews with the water and coffee swirling through the window and then finally in the coffee pot and it lets you know when it is done which is about 15 minutes later.
Pros: Coffee tastes great and smooth, better for the environment. I love that fact it tells you when done, if you need to add water etc.
Cons: says not to use a coffee filter but it takes longer to get the grounds out so I feel filter is a must, takes longer to brew then then the single cup machine.
So depending how you feel about a coffee machine and preference is up to what you want to buy.

My hair is always flat and no matter what I do I can never get it to do anything. I recently found HIclips which are a hair volumizer and how it works you clip them in at the root and one or both of them works well with air drying or blow drying also make sure to pull the hair away from your head for better results. If you are like me you need to read a step by step guide until you get it as I must say I do not do a lot with my hair and with them my hair looks great and different. 
My Opinion:  These work well and look at the results, i got many compliments with the look these gave me.

I love the fact I can get a sexier look without spending a ton of money at a hair salon and it is so easy to do after I got they step by step guide down. To learn more visit

Instavac Food Storage Containers

I love Ozeri products so I jumped at the opportunity to review the Instavac Food Storage containers. They come on a box of four different sizes with lids. How it works is you place the item you want to store and lock the handles of the lid into place next you can use your two thumbs side by side or the forefinger to simply press down on the center of the lid this forces any air out through the one way valve as you are doing this the green vacuum indicator in the center valve will pop down and whistle to create the vacuum seal next you will set the date dial which lets you k now the date it was stored. Next you can release the vacuum by pulling up one way valve lever and listen for the whistling sound. Last step release the handle and remove the lid. These containers are also BPA Free.The wave pattern on the bottom helps keep fruits and vegetables elevated from moisture and juices.

My Opinion: They work really well at keep the lettuce fresh for over l week. 

You can also use these in the microwave to be splatter free, stain resistant and shatter proof. To learn more visit

Jamesy Boy

Being released on February 25, 2014 from Phase 4 Films and XLrator Media is Jamesy Boy this movie is based on true events and directed by Trevor White and stars an amazing cast which are James Woods (White House Down, Casino), Mary-Louise Parker (TV’s Weeds, Fried Green Tomatoes), Ving Rhames (Pulp Fiction, Mission Impossible), Taissa Farmiga (The Bling Ring, TV”s American Horror Story), Taboo (Black Eyed Peas) and introducing Spencer Lofranco (Unbroken, At Middleton).
This movie is about a teenage named James Burns who goes from a suburban street gang to maximum security prison cell surrounded by hardened criminals. He forms an unlikely friendship with a convicted murderer and turns his life around as he is looking up to his new found friend.
My Opinion: I liked the story line and the movie as you see this happen every day when will kids learn that violence is not the answer? When will parents step in and try to give their child all the right tools to make better choices? I realize kids from all backgrounds are affected the question is how to we help our youth? This movie is moving and touches the heart. It makes me want to help all the kids to not make the wrong choices but I know they need to decide for themselves.

Simple Glow Candle Review & Giveaway

One of my favorite things to burn is candles and I feel you can never have to many as you never know when you will need them. I love all types of candles and they are good for mood setting, when you lose electricity, camping, room deodorizer and so much more. I recently reviewed Simple Glow candles which is owned by Alex & Audrey and all the candles are soy. The scents I choose were Crisp Fall and Winter Mint. Crisp Fall is all the scents you expect to smell that time of year like Cinnamon, Clove and Nutmeg. The Winter Mint peppermint sticks and chocolate mints. I really enjoy both these scents I got and with winter here I am burning the winter mint now and it is making my home smell good. Besides the candles I got they have Surprise, Strawberry Lemonade, Enchanted and so much more visit 

You may be wondering the difference between wax and soy candles and below is the answer the paraffin wax was derived from the components of decayed animal and plant materials, is made by removing the waxy substance from crude oil, used in candle making. It is a non-toxic, colorless, clean-burning ,Has defined large crystal structure and a melt point usually between 120-160 degrees. Tends to be hard and brittle.
Soy Wax discovered in 1991 as a newer alternative to paraffin wax.
It is a natural, renewable, non-toxic and biodegradable wax.
It is a hydrogenated form of soybean oil, available in flake form and has an off-white appearance, soy wax has a lower melting point than paraffin. Burns longer and at a cooler temperature than paraffin wax.
 So that is the difference which may not seem much but it is.
My Opinion: I love these candles and the scent.
