Bark Back *Day 13*

For BarkThins Dark Chocolate Almond with Sea Salt

Sunshine Voxbox 005

What It Is:

Snack dark chocolate with almonds

Key Ingredients:

Dark chocolate, dry roasted almonds, sea salt

How It Looks/Tastes/Smells:

It looks like normal chocolate bark. It smells like straight up high percentage dark chocolate, speaking of which I would like to know the percentage of dark chocolate in this “snacking chocolate”. Does anyone know? It tastes like one of the best dark chocolates that I have ever eaten. It tastes like dark chocolate, almonds (It has almonds in it, like whole ones.), and a pinch of salt to break up all of the sweet.

Why I Like It:

It is one of the best dark chocolates out there and one little piece was enough to satisfy me for the day. This lasted me more than three servings like they suggest. I would recommend buying the blueberry one or the mint. Both sound very good. Which one would you try out?

With Love,

Selena

#Sunshine Voxbox*

Heya Aspiring Gurus!

I recently received my Sunshine Voxbox from Influenster and I thought that I would share it with all of you. I got so many things in this box and I couldn’t believe that the value of this free box was 39 USD! That is a lot of stuff for free! I am so excited to be trying out all of these products and I hope you enjoy the reviews to come and all the Influenster related posts that come with being a brand ambassador. I will be uploading a post soon with my unboxing video, because those can be fun to do. Lol. As a disclosure, I recieved everything in this post from Influenster for testing purposes only. All opinions are my own.

The bright yellow box was so pretty! I absolutely loved it!

Vaseline Intensive Care Spray Moisturizer in Aloe Soothe, 6.5 for 6.49 USD

lotion

I am excited to give this a try! I have been interested in spray lotions for a while and this will give me a sense if I like them or not. I like that they are quick and easy for when you are tired/lazy/in a hurry. I like the convenience factor. I’m not sure that I would use this all of the time, because I do like to use regular lotion in the mornings, but on the nights when I just want to go to bed, I think this would be great for that. I’ll let you guys know for sure though at a later date.

Dickinson’s Original Witch Hazel Refreshingly Clean Cleansing Clothes, 25 ct for 6.99 USD

cleansing clothesSunshine Voxbox 006

You can never have too many cleansing clothes. Even though I just bought a huge packet, I like having the option to choose between different kinds depending on my mood. I like how these have witch hazel, which is great at fighting acne. I tend to have minor flareups, so II’m hoping that this will help to keep it under control. I just wish it had a plastic lid, so I could bring them to work with me for an afternoon refresher. I also love that it comes with 9 USD worth of coupons.

Bark Thins, 4.99 USD

Sunshine Voxbox 005

I didn’t get my free Bark Thins, yet. I will though. I’m looking forward to it.

Blue Diamond Sriracha Almonds, 1.5 oz for 1.59 USD

Blue Diamond

I am looking forward to trying this out. There will probably be a review uploaded later this week about it, because I cannot wait to eat them. Also, one of my tasks is to review it anyways on a different social media platform, so I thought might as well post it here as well for all of you to enjoy. I really like nuts and spices. I’m hoping that these will be really good.

Infusium 23 Moisture Replenisher Leave-In Smoothing Creme Enhanced with Avocado and Olive Oil, 4 fl oz for 6.99 USD

Smoothing Creme

I am excited to try something to smooth out my frizzy hair. Since I have cut it short, it has started to do some strange things that make me miss my long mermaid hair. I want to grow my hair out long again, but I need something to control the frizzies! I’ll let you know if this helps at all. Get ready for some first impressions in the next few weeks.

Sinful Colors in Ocean Side, 0.5 fl oz for 1.99 USD

nail polish

This color is a bit more teal in real life, but still just as dark. It doesn’t say summer to be, more like Fall or the end of summer. I wish I got a brighter color for summer, but I love the formula. It glides on smoothly and you can get away with one coat. I did two coats, because I like my nails to last and be perfect. I will probably move on to a brighter color next week.

That is everything in my box! I hope you enjoyed this and are ready for more posts about this box to come!

With Love,

Selena

Fresh From Le Press: Influenster

The Dean’s List VoxBox

Voxbox

Heya Aspiring Gurus!

It was only a short time ago that I was notified that I would be receiving the Dean’s List VoxBox and sharing that with Dani, who is also getting the same VoxBox. A fat that is very exciting for me, because I will have someone to share in my excitement! I feel so lucky and blessed! I want to take a moment and thank the lovely people at Influenster for making VoxBoxes possible and for free to boot! Although, let’s be honest, some of the boxes, I would pay to try. They should look into creating a subscription service.

On a side note, I would like to express my displeasure that Walmart bought out Luvocracy, which was total bull-crap and they basically did nothing with the site. They just wanted to kill it. Did anyone else luv Luvoracy before Walmart? I’m super sad and mad beyond belief. le sigh

On a brighter note, I have started a new series called “Fresh From Le Press” for all of the free press products that I receive to review on my blog. I’m not doing this to brag. I am doing this to be as transparent as possible with all of you. If it has that title, I received it in exchange for an honest review. I’m not blindly endorsing any of these products. I even will state in the post that I received something for free, but that all opinions are my own. Now, let’s keep that in mind as I continue.

I received this box of goodies free from Influenster in exchange for an honest review. So, here are the goodies that I received!

The Box:

VoxBox

The box is a good compact size. I definitely didn’t think it was full with this much stuff!

The Card:

The Card

#DLVoxBox will be my most popular hast tag for awhile as I try all of these products for the first time. Everything is totally new to me, so rest assured, I am not already biased towards any of the products. I like how on the back of the card, it lists the products you are getting and a little bit about each one, so you really get introduced to the new product you are getting without having to do extensive online researching. cough Ipsy cough

Kiss Looks So Natural Lashes in 60484 KFL02, 1 pair for $3.99 USD

Kiss LashesKiss Lashes

I cannot wait to try out these false lashes. I am going to be trying them out tomorrow and I will let you know what I think of them. They are supposed to be more natural looking due to the tapered ends, but it is kind of hard to believe that other lashes do not have this shape. I guess, I’ll find out when I try it. It is also supposed to feel like you aren’t wearing false lashes and are super soft. I have never tried false lashes before, so it will be an adventure for sure as well as an experience.

Softlips Cube 5-in-1 Lip Care in Fresh Mint, 0.23 oz for 3.49 USD

lip balmlip balm

I believe that this is supposed to be a dupe for EOS lip balm, but at its price, its not a dupe but an alternative since they are the same price. This lip balm has SPF in it, which is always nice during the warmer months or if you spend a lot of time outdoors. The lip balm promises to hydrate, replenish, smooth, protect, and add shine to your lips with its lip perfecting technology. I just opened the packaging and smelled the lip balm. It smells exactly like my Revo [knock off EOS] lip balm in peppermint. It applies on the same, which is very smoothly and my lips got that tingly feeling that mint tends to have on your skin. I like it, but the Walgreens brand beats Softlips with its price. This is definitely heavier than the EOS as well. If you are not a fan of the EOS, Softlips is still worth a try as a nice simple moisturizer for your lips.

Pilot FriXion Clicker 07 in Blue & Black, 2 for $5.75

pens

First off, I love how it came with a $1 off coupon, just in case I love it to make the first purchase cheaper. I love pens, a lot. These are fun and a cool concept that works. Remember how erasable pens were all the rage? Yeah, they have it finally perfected. These are gel ink pens that erase from the heat of rubbing the rubberized end against the page. I think that these pens would be brilliant for blogging, since I love the smoothness from the gel ink when writing and it takes less pressure to have the ink run my words. I love the design of the pens as well. I just love trying out new pens. It is a passion of mine. I am a total pen snob. No ball point pens for me…unless they are decorative.

Luden’s Watermelon Throat Drops, 25 ct for 1.49 USD

dropsdrops

You can only buy this at Target, which is a bit of a bummer, because the closest one to me is fifteen miles away. This new flavor is super yummy! It tastes like watermelon sherbet ice cream by Friendlies. This tastes better than your average throat drops that are laced with medicinal undertones. Luden’s just tastes like candy, but do not be deceived. It does contain medicine Now, I do not have a sore throat, so I cannot say, if it does work or not. It does taste great, though, like the packaging claims.

The Softlips does have a coupon for $1.00 off that was hiding under those cough drops! Now, that I have a coupon. I will probably be picking one up, if I continue to enjoy it.

Sinful Colors No Text Red, 0.5 fl oz for 1.99 USD

red nail polishcardcard

For some reason, I thought that this brand was more expensive. The quality is very high end for something so cheap. I like that the color has a movement behind it. I will be using this for my next manicure and join the movement. There is not much to say about this nail polish until I put it to the test. Stay Tuned!

Air Heads Bites in Fruit, 2 oz for 1.29 USD

Air Heads

I never really liked the sticky taffy like texture of air heads, so I am interested in trying the bite sized candy to see what all of the fuss was about growing up about this candy. I never see this stuff anymore, so I didn’t know that Air Heads were still a thing. I’ll let you know how they are, when I treat myself to it.

Playtex Sport Fresh Balance Tampons in Regular, 16 ct for 3.99 USD

tamponstampons

Not to be weird or anything, but these smell so fresh and flowery. Lol. I really want to try these after I read the box. The tampon itself is shaped more like a cup instead of a stick. I always found that regular tampons didn’t work for me, so maybe these will be better for me. Now, I’ll just have to wait for Aunt Flo to come around. I am very irregular since stopping my birth control. I actually might have a hormonal imbalance since I haven’t had a natural period this year. I had a chemically induced one  three months ago and nothing since then. And no, I’m not pregnant that has been ruled out by my doctor (kind of impossible when you aren’t having sex). So, I don’t know when I’ll get to try this, but I will have it until then. Who knows? I may be a tampon girl after all! #failwhitegirl.

So, that is everything that I got in my VoxBox. I’m so excited about all of these products. The total worth of this box was 21.99 USD and I paid nada. I love it! Stay tuned to my blog for upcoming reviews on all of these products. And I would like to thank Influenster again for supplying all of these products for me to test.

With Love,

The Retail Diaries: Day 16

Heya Aspiring Gurus!

Today was a very good day at work. I didn’t really have any problems today in regards to people or sales. I was put on a register that had a broken deactivator, so that made things a bit interesting. The deactivator behind me on number 5 was working though. I was on number 4. It made me think of I Am Number 4 for some strange reason. Lol. I don’t have much to say about today. A lady I checked out complimented me on my ring, which was nice. I just had a really pleasant day, which is really rare. I’m on the waitlist for an Ipsy bag and I really cannot wait to start getting my bag!!! I really want it to be soon. I’m trying to earn my Dr. Scholl’s badge on Influenster, so a complete review is in the works. I have a few reviews that will be going up as well as some other posts. I’m really trying to keep things interesting. Let me know if you have any suggestions and what posts you are really loving. Until my next post!

With Love,

Unboxing: Dr. Scholl’s Active Series Voxbox From @InfluensterVoxbox

Heya Aspiring Gurus!

For some strange reason, I cannot upload to youtube, so I am going to upload my unboxing video here. It is just me opening my box. I thought that I might get something more, but I didn’t. I have a review coming up, but I do not want to spoil it by writing something now. Here is the video if you want to watch it, if not keep reading!….I just realized that I have to upgrade my account to post my own videos..That’s so stupid. Anyways, I am going to keep trying with youtube. Here is a picture of the insoles in my shoes, instead.

insolesvoxbox-blogimage-popup2

Anyways, here are some details on the box:

“Heel: Heel pad absorbs impact yet is very responsive.

Arch: Unique arch design improves transition of weight from landing to push-off.

Bal of Foot: Thick ball of foot helps distribute pressure throughout push-off”

First impression?

I really love these insoles. I wear them to work and they help my feet not be so painful from standing up for hours on end. I have only worked out in them once and they increased my endurance. I was able to workout for a longer period of time. I am happy that I got to try these insoles, because they are anywhere from 19.99 to 24.99 in stores. I would have never bought these for myself. I cannot wait to complete all of my Influenster tasks! Until my next post!

With Love,

The Retail Diaries: Day 11

Heya Aspiring Gurus!

Today was another great day at work. I breezed through the day with lags in customers than at times, a large volume of customers that my line is six people long. I learned how to do a 30 day order and scanned 30 gift cards. It is insane about how many gift cards I scanned. Anyways, I had a few customers argue about prices in  the store, resulting in some voiding of transactions. Apparently, you cannot buy prepaid cards with a credit card, even if you use it as debt. I didn’t see the girl at work today. I hope I see her soon. We get assigned wacky hours, so it could be awhile before I see her again. My discount card is ready to be picked up tomorrow, so that gets me very excited to start saving even more money. I am a big purchaser at the retail store that I work for. If you read my blog, you might be able to guess it, but I am not at liberty to confirm it. I really am enjoying my week. My Dr. Scholl’s Active Series insoles compliments of Influenster are really making a difference with my feet. They aren’t sore anymore! It makes me super happy to have less pained feet. I really love them for standing for long periods of time and walking. Well, that’s it. Until my next post!

With Love,

The Retail Diaries: Day 9

Heya Aspiring Gurus!

I had a really great day today at work! I’m thinking about making these posts once a week instead of everyday of work. What do you guys think? Would you rather have a weekly wrap up or do you enjoy the daily entries? It doesn’t matter much to me. I rather like to post everyday and make it more of a diary than a weekly episode. Anyways, I sold two smart plans today, so I earned an extra 50 cents an hour today. Let me tell you, a little bit of cash really adds up. I’ll earn an extra 1.00 in my paycheck. That’s enough for a candy bar. Yum! I didn’t have many problems today. My deactivator was broken on my register, so when the lady tried to leave, her purchase sent the alarms off. Opsy! They switched me to a different register that was working properly and I had no more problems in that department. I had a couple of people in my line smell strongly of cigarettes and it made me physically cough. Ew! I had one lady decide not to buy her purchase and had to void the whole purchase. I had Tang for my drink at break and a chunky peanut butter and concord grape jelly sandwich on whole wheat bread. I worked some more and soon enough it was time to leave. When I came home, I had my Dr. Scholl’s Active Series Influenster Voxbox waiting for me. I did an unboxing video that I will upload tomorrow and later this week, I will have more posts about it and of course some beauty posts, including an empties and a September favorites!! Until my next post!
