Influenster Spring Fling Vox Box

   I adore influenster, I really do. It takes a little bit of work and patience, but it is so worth it when you get your box in the mail and get to marvel at all the FREE stuff you get. I love being able to review stuff that was sent to me completely free of charge! The following is a review of each item in the box that I have used, as well as my thoughts on the ones that I have not had the chance to use yet! 

   Rimmel Scandaleyes Retroglam: This mascara is great! The formula is fantastic and ends up looking great. The only thing I do not care for is the hourglass shaped brush. I am not a huge fan of odd shaped brushes in general, I'm more of a regular classic mascara brush. However, after a few coats of this stuff I had my lashes looking scandalous! (see what I did there?)

Softlips Cube: I. AM. DYING. I am a religious soft lips user. Anytime anything softlips comes out, I buy it. When I saw this coming in my box I was so excited. I had tried the EOS lip balm and tried to make myself love it, I really did. But I hated the EOS. It was not a nice formula, it smelled and tasted weird, and overall I just didn't like it. This softlips cube, is TONS better than that junk. It smells great, tastes great, has the most adorable packaging, AND it has the perfect softlips formula that gives you super soft lips! 

Nivea Skin Firming Lotion: I love the fresh, clean smell of this stuff. It leaves my legs and arms feeling smooth and very well moisturized. I've only been using it a couple of days so obviously there is no sign of skin firming yet. Overall a nice product. Not sure if it is one I would repurchase, unless it does actually firm my skin up a little. Then it'd be totally worth it!

KISS Everlasting French manicure: These nails are beautiful. I have heard so many good things about the KISS nails and was super stoked to try them out. The only thing I don't like about these nails is that they are the medium length. Who knows, once I actually apply these I may love them. But I'm more of a natural nails person than having nails that are obviously fake.

Playtex Sport Tampons: I've used playtex before, but I can't really judge these if I haven't used them yet. And well, you can't just try these out for fun....

Labor Day Car Freshener: This was adorable. It smelled great. For 5 minutes. I got out of my car and got back in and the smell was gone. But that's not a big deal. It was a promo car freshener that I paid nothing for so I have nothing to be disappointed in. It's not like I could go repurchase it anyways.

Overall, this box was fantastic. I love having the opportunities influenster has given me!

  Five Fact Friday

Rather than post a big long blog of my life story, I want to let you learn a little about me little by little. So I am introducing you to Five Fact Friday! It's pretty self-explanatory...Each Friday I will post 5 facts about myself/my life! Feel free to comment 5 facts about yourself as well...I'd love to get to know you!

1.) First and foremost, I want each of you to know that Jesus Christ is the Lord and Savior of my life. Without Him I could do nothing. My main goal in life is to live as much like Christ as I can. This does not mean I will preach to you, judge you, condemn you, or anything along those lines. It's my beliefs and how I live. I completely understand you may have different beliefs and opinions than me and that's completely okay. This blog is designed to talk shopping and beauty, not religion.

2.) I think my husband is the best person God put on the earth. We got married March 22, 2014. Yes, still newlyweds! Being married to Jon has been the absolute highlight of my life. We have so much fun together. It is so wonderful being able to be myself around someone without worrying about if my hair looks like I've been through a hurricane, if my breath still smells like Mexican food, or if my face resembles an oil spill (thank you, Georgia humidity!) Oh yeah, and he is super hot. (You'll hear that one til I'm 107 years old.)

3.) I sing in a praise and worship band called Impact Band. We currently do not sing or write our own music, although we are hoping to get to that point someday. We go to local churches and have concerts. It truly is so rewarding and so much fun. My favorite part about doing this is that I get the opportunity to influence people's lives through the talent God has given me. God called me to worship ministry years ago and I pray that He continues to use me in whatever way He sees fit. I get the opportunity to lead worship with my baby sister (who is my best friend), my cousin (also my best friend), my cousin's husband, and MY very own husband. Can I just say, he is a super hot drummer!

4.) I am 22...almost 23 years old. This fact isn't that interesting, but now you know.

AND last but certainly not least...

5.) GO DAWGS!! (Now you know where I live!)


BzzAgent Alert!

I received my first shipment from BzzAgent this past week and am now prepared to review it! I received the BIC Soleil Glow razor campaign, and y'all...Thank goodness I did! I got a 3-pack of razors, along with SEVERAL coupons for $3 off!

First off, I must say I have really sensitive skin when it comes to shaving my legs and underarms. I typically buy Venus razors for sensitive skin and pay a little more for them due to this. I was nervous to try out a razor that was not for sensitive skin. Now I am in LOVE with these things. My legs were insanely smooth after using one of these babies! Did I mention they didn't bother my sensitive skin?! The best part about these is the 3-pack is only $6.99....that means if you use one of the coupons received in the package, they can be bough for only $3.99!

If you have not ever heard of BzzAgent, it's so much fun. All you do is answer surveys and do reviews on products. Your activity and involvement qualifies you for 'campaigns' that give you the opportunity to receive products to review! It's definitely worth the time you put into it..which really isn't all that much!

Thank you for reading my blog!
