It has been nearly a month since my last blog post, but I have been working hard on planning for upcoming blog posts. It has always been my desire to be more active on my blog, but life has made that difficult. I fully intend to change that here shortly. I have so many wonderful ideas for Makeup n’ Munchies — I’ve even been working on writing a cookbook! — which I’m very excited about. I’ve always loved writing and have dreamt of writing a book, so why not combine two things I love?
While I’ve been busily planning for Makeup n’ Munchies, working on both of our businesses and taking care of my family, Influenster surprised me with a new product to try! For the past month I have been actively testing the NEW Country Crock spreads! I have always been a Country Crock fan, but when I made the choice to better my health in 2014, I cut out all butter, margarin, etc. and switched to coconut oil. I was a bit skeptical when I read that the new spreads were healthier. Healthier butter?
Country Crocks new recipe includes:
Palm kernel and palm oil
Vitamin A palmitate
Beta carotene (color)
These new spreads are so soft and creamy! The new Country Crock spreads are perfect for those recipes that call for softened butter or margarine. There’s no need to leave the spreads sitting on the counter to soften. Just measure what you need and you’re good to go!
Before I get to the review, I want to give a quick shout-out to all of my subscribers, old and new. Thank you! I’ve had a good amount of people subscribe to me recently and it really means a lot! I hope you guys enjoy what I have to offer here at Makeup n’ Munchies.
I wish I could dedicate more time to my blog, but with a toddler, school, internship, husband, business, etc. it’s quite difficult to keep up — but I do have a lot of products I’ve been testing as well as recipes I need to share with you all, and I’m hoping I can start being more proactive here.
While I was on a quick trip to Walmart for a razor, I stumbled upon the new Venus Swirl Razor. I had my go-to razor in hand when a display suddenly came to life. It was lit up pretty bright and had a demo of how the razor moves with the curves of your body. Next thing I knew, I found myself reaching for the new razor — and I’m so happy I did!
If you’re looking for a new beauty product to try in 2015, I highly recommend the NEW NYC Expert Last Lip Color. I received a complimentary lip color in Sugar Plum from Influenster for testing purposes and I’m so in-love with it!
Most of the lip colors I’ve tried in the past have been very drying on my lips. I’ll use the lip color once or twice and then it’s left sitting in one of my many drawers of makeup. That was NOT the case with NYC Expert Last Lip Color. I received my VoxBox right before Christmas and I think that Sugar Plum was the perfect shade to send out for the holidays/winter. I can’t wait to try some of the other shades that are available.
Pictures don’t do this beautiful lip color justice. Sugar Plum reminds me of a mixture of brown, orange, and a slight hint of red all put into one lip color.
