I hope everyone is staying warm on this beautiful Saturday morning. Thursday night into Friday morning we received a good 3″ of snow – our first snow of 2017. My 3.5-year-old is a little snow bunny, so you can guess how we’ve been spending our time 😉
Now that I have a nice, big cup of coffee in hand, I am ready to share with you the new Purex Crystals that I received from BzzAgent to test and review. Purex Crystals are an in-wash fragrance booster that enhance your laundry’s scent. Prior to starting a load of laundry, add as much or as little of the Purex Crystals to your washing machine as you see fit – it all depends on your personal fragrance preference!
Hi, everyone! Earlier this week I introduced you to the new products I received from Swaggable. The products I would like to talk about today are the products I received from Vasanti. Prior to receiving these products in the mail, I had never heard of Vasanti. After a little bit of research I found out that Vasanti was founded by a sisterhood of women (three sisters and one childhood friend). This sisterhood of women created their beauty products around one simple question: “Why doesn’t make-up look good on me?” You can read more about the sisterhood behind these lovely products here. While conducting my research, I came across one huge plus – Vasanti products are not tested on animals. You can purchase these products via vasanticosmetics.com, birchbox.com, amazon.com, amazon.co.uk, and at selected high end Shoppers Drug Mart locations across Canada.
Hello, everyone! I hope you all had a wonderful Christmas!
My little family and I spend Thanksgiving in Maui this year and while we were gone, I received a ton of free products to test and review. Today I would like to share a few items I received from Swaggable.
If this is the first time you’re hearing about Swaggable, I highly recommend you click the link above and see what they’re all about. When you create an account with Swaggable you are given the opportunity to scan through tons of different products and select whether you “Want In” or not. If you want in you are added to a list of users who would like to try that particular product. When and if that product becomes available, Swaggable will send you a complimentary sample – all you have to do in return for the complimentary sample is write a product review on their website. Easy, right?
This past week I received the Herbal Essences VoxBox from Influenster and I wanted to share a sneak peek at what was inside.
I was in awe when I saw what was inside. THREE full-size Herbal Essences products to try which included the Herbal Essences Body Envy Shampoo, Conditioner, and Mousse.
I have already been testing these products and I cannot wait to write up a full review for you guys!
Herbal Essences Body Envy Shampoo & Conditioner Set (10.1 Fl Oz Ea)
Have you tried the Herbal Essences Body Envy products? If so, what do you think of them?
Have a wonderful Sunday!

Today I am excited to share with you the new Maybelline New York Color Sensational Vivid Matte Liquid. I love testing and reviewing a wide variety of products, but my favorite types of products to test are makeup — especially lipstick!
There are currently 10 Vivid Matte shades to choose from. The 2 shades I received in my VoxBox are “Nude Flush” and “Rebel Red.”
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!
“How do you get free products?” That is a question I hear almost daily. Today I am here to share with you a few of my favorite websites I use to obtain FREE (mostly full size) products.
The first website that I’m going to brag about is Influenster. I have been an Influenster for just over three years. I stumbled across Influenster when I saw a friend of mine posting reviews on Facebook about products she received for free. Back when I joined Influenster, you needed another Influenster to invite you to join. Today, you can create an account for free. It’s simple to create an account and get started. Once you have created an account, it’s time to start reviewing! Search for products you already use and review them. You can also ask questions about the product or help answer other Influenster’s questions. The best advice I can give you about Influenster is to stay active and don’t give up hope! The more active you are, the more likely you are to receive a VoxBox. Also, make sure to connect all of your social media accounts and answer all “snaps” that come you way. I have been lucky enough to receive multiple VoxBoxes a year and I have so much fun with them! Influenster will email you short surveys for you to fill out to try to qualify you for future VoxBoxes. Make sure that you respond to them promptly because there’s always a deadline associated with each survey.
Here I am, trying to be consistent. Only 3 more days left until the #SpiceVoxBox comes to a close. I have now had the opportunity to test each product and am ready to review them. I had originally wanted to write a post for each product, but I have since decided not to. Each “mini review” will contain the description from the #SpiceVoxBox infromation card I received.
“At Good Health, we believe the secret to a great “Lifeitude,” aka loving life to the fullest, is feeling good. That’s why we pack our Veggie Straws with Extra Goodness! Like nutrients (vitamins) from tomatoes, spinach, beets, broccoli and carrots to deliver a truly delicious snack so you can… Enjoy Being Good!”
The first product I would like to talk about is Good Health Veggies Straws. This product is great in so many ways. The first being it is a non-GMO product. I know many people who believe the whole “GMO” thing is a spoof (my husband included), but I am not one of them. Not only does this product fit my lifestyle, my almost three year old loves them as well. I’ve tried many different brands of veggie straws over the years, but this is the first brand of veggie straws that I actually thought tasted like real veggies. I only wish I could find these in store! I have looked at Walmart, Target, and our local grocery store and have had no luck. I haven’t been to Sprouts or Whole Foods lately, so I may have to try there. It’s nice finding a snack product that is healthy and accepted by my very picky toddler. According to the information card I received from Influenster, these 6.75 oz packs retail for $3.99. If anyone can find these, can you please share with me where you found them? #EnjoyBeingGood
Hey, everyone 🙂
It’s been way too long! I’m so behind on blogging, but I’m hoping to change that very soon. Between working full-time (my hubs too), running 2 businesses, chasing after my almost 3 year old daughter, and taking care of our 3 pups, I barely have time to breathe. Big changes are in our near future though 🙂 and I am optimistic I will have this blog up and running like I used to.
Recently, I received 2 VoxBox’s from Influenster. The first was the #PumpkinVoxBox and the second is the #SpiceVoxBox. I won’t even bother reviewing the #PumpkinVoxBox — no offense to Influenster, it just happens to be my least favorite VoxBox.
As you can tell, I am very excited about this VoxBox. It has some amazing products and I don’t have a single bad thing to say about any of them.
I’m sorry I’m running a little behind with my reviews and updates on the FrostyVoxBox. Christmas had me swamped the past 2 weeks.
Here’s another product that I received in my #FrostyVoxBox from Influenster. I was extremely excited when I saw that I received a full-size hair brush. And EcoTools? How awesome is that?!
Don’t those bristles look amazing?
