#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

Manicure Monday: November 3rd 2014

Heya Aspiring Gurus!

Happy Monday! I hope everyone has a fabulous week and I have  brand new mani to fawn over this week. I get distracted at work looking at my manicure sometimes. Is anyone else guilty of that as well? I decided to celebrate Christmas early this week with my glittery manicure. They are just so sparkly. distracted by the sparkle Here’s how I made it happen.

No Text RedLiquid Sand RedManicure

I applied two coats of Sinful Colors No Text Red, even though my nails really just needed one coat, it was that perfect and opaque. I then applied two coats of OPI Liquid Sand in Red. The result is a flawless sparkly dimensional manicure that is more on the pink side of red. My dad said that my nails were “hooker red”, which I rolled my eyes to. That is such a stereotype displayed on the television. That’s it for now!

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,

Manicure Monday: A Touch Of Glitter

Heya Aspiring Gurus!

I have a quick Manicure Monday post for all of you. I know that I am late, since it is Tuesday afternoon. I also wanted to let all of you out there know that I have a new job!! I got hired at Maphre Insurance Company in the accounting department. I am going to be cashing people’s checks to the company and opening mail! I am super excited at getting a desk job, where I can drink COFFEE! Oh, mg! This is the best thing to ever happen to me. I am going to have a career. Those three college years are not going to waste. My job will be full time with benefits. That means paid holidays and vacations, people! I am so excited to be finally starting my real life. I’m even shop looking at houses, since I’m planning to save 5K in a year in order  to put a down payment on a fixeruper. There are so many cute places to live. Do you want to see the contenders? Would you like to see house hunting posts? Let me know!

So, back to what this post is all about! I painted my nails with Sinful Shine with Gel Tech in 1219 Alfresco and used OPI Last Friday Night as a glitter top coat. It makes my nails look super girly, but also really chic as well. I love the way these polishes look together. I really loved them. Well, here are the pictures!
