Sally Hansen Airbrush Legs

Well, success! I had gotten chosen to receive the Sally Hansen Airbrush Legs Vox Box from Influenster. I was super excited to try this product. The claims were that your legs would look smoother and that imperfections would be hidden. Well, if you have ever used a primer for your face, this is the same concept, but tinted. I didn’t care for the tinted color, see, my legs are really pale, even though I’m in the sun a lot. I had to make sure I blended it in by my feet and ankles so that the color would match. It is very light, and very easy to blend, so that wasn’t that big of a deal. I noticed a slight difference in the smooth appearance of my legs after using this. I don’t have veins, or scars, so I don’t know about that, but they did appear to look smoother and softer.

I am glad I got to try this. I wouldn’t buy it. It just wasn’t for me. I’m in my 30s. Perhaps back in my 20s I would have spent money on this, but, I’m good with shaving and lotion.

Children’s Mucinex Multi-Symptom Cold Review

I was not looking forward to my son getting sick, but I couldn’t wait to try out the free full sized bottle of Children’s Mucinex Multi-Symptom Cold I received  free from Smiley360.  I’m a sucker for trying new things!  When my son finally got sick, I was less than thrilled that he felt badly, but excited to try the Mucinex.

GE

That excitement quickly turned to pleas for him to ‘JUST SWALLOW IT!’ when I tried to give him the medicine.  My son, oddly, is usually very easy to give medicine to.  In fact he tends to actually like the grape varieties.  Strange, I know.  As soon as the Children’s Mucinex touched his tongue he acted as if I gave him poison to eat.  It was THAT bad.  With lots of pleading and bribing, I finally got him to take it.

It did work very well.  My sick lil fella,  full of snot, was finally breathing easier.  He was much more pleasant to be around and, played with his toys hacking every 10 seconds. When it was finally bedtime he slept through the night without any problems.

I have mixed feeling about this product.  On one hand it was such a pain to give it to him, but on the other hand it worked really well.  I do plan on using Mucinex again the next time he’s sick, but I will try to find a different flavor or form,

To Heaven and Back

This story has revived me into the consciousness of God’s Presence, Love and Faith. An understanding of God’s promises and forgiveness. Of His endless and continue love and grace, even when we fail Him, ourselves and others. The remaining faithfulness of God in the midst of tragic events in our lives. The miracles and coincidences of God in our lives. The unknown of the future and the faith in God’s holding arms to rescue us and protects us in the midst of accidents, doubts and our surroundings. The joy of His Presence and the sense of gratitude is something we can’t afford to lose, not only when everything is going good but during difficult times. The story of seeing Heaven and the host of witnesses during her death comforted me and made me so joyful that is hard to explain. It is something so true and believable, that only by reading this book I can feel the greatest presence of God all around me. My heart leaps of Joy and wants to sing! And the calling of God… is without repentance!
Thank you Dr. Mary Neal for sharing your amazing story!

Hershey Chocolate Spreads

I received a sample of this from Crowdtap thinking it was Hershey’s venture into the “Nutella knockoff” business. I also noticed a lack of any hazelnuts on the ingredient list which left me wondering what to expect with the flavor. Although Hershey’s does make a hazelnut, which intend to buy.

When I opened the container I detected no smell at all. I was expecting a chocolate smell but after taking a couple whiffs of the jar, there wasn’t anything I but chocolate. Thankfully this changed when I put my spoon in for the first bite.

My first impressions of this reminded me of the flavor of dry Hot Cocoa mix. If you’ve ever emptied a packet of Hot Cocoa mix into your mouth, than that is exactly what this tastes like and it’s darn good. The flavor is sweet but not overly sweet and the Hot Cocoa flavor lingers for a few seconds after I swallowed the rest of my bite. There is no aftertaste which is a pleasant surprise after I tried Wal-Mart’s attempt at a Nutella knockoff and got a heavy dose of “too much oil” flavor on the end.

If you’re looking for that Hot Cocoa mix flavor and want to spread it on toast, pretzels, cookies, or just eat it out of the jar like I do, than this is a great option.

Meaningful Beauty by Cindy Crawford Voxbox from Influenster

Meaningful Beauty by Cindy Crawford Voxbox from Influenster review. First off I’m 36, but have no serious wrinkles, fine lines, or sagging. Blessed with good genes. I am starting to notice a bit of dullness, though. So, needless to say, I was thrilled to get to try this free in my Influenster meaningful beauty voxbox. It has a very light texture! Bonus, because I loathe heavy creams. It does not make me break out, and I am prone to break outs on my chin. It works very well to brighten my dull spots and even me out. I end up looking more glowy and supple. I use it at night after cleansing, and it keeps my skin soft and feeling fresh in the morning. I would recommend it to anyone.

Kroger fuel points from gift cards

Gift+Cards1-sm+copy

 When you shop at Kroger and buy gift cards, you earn extra fuel points using your rewards card. It is all automatic and carefree and I get to reap the benefits all year. I buy the gift cards for personal use and/or presents. Every 100 points is $0.10 off per gallon. Kroger currently has a promo of double rewards points. Couldn’t be happier with the process. I had gotten some coupons for 4x fuel points from BzzAgent and bought gift cards for shopping for Christmas and as gifts. I then earned over 1000 points which is $1 off per gallon of gas. Now go get you some of those savings!! #gotadiscount

Kroger skillet meals and sides

I got the free sausage rigatoni from BzzAgent for my husband, myself and our 3 year old. It had a good flavor, but the amount in the bag small and it was skimpy on the sausage. I liked that the Rigatoni was aldente after being cooked. My favvvvvorite part is that it was one pan and 10 minutes. I will purchase this. But next time two bags and might try a different variety. I also got the garlic bread. Mmmmm. Tastes just like the name brand and cooks as quickly as the skillet meal. Add the salad and you are done in 15 minutes start to table. The bag of salad a little smaller than name brand, but I didn’t verify. The greens were mixed and fresh and ready to eat. My husband is a big salad person and thought it was comparable to name brand.
