Today I am thankful for...

I know I talk about how awesome being an "Influenster" is all the time, but today I wanted to share with you a few videos so you can see for yourself just how amazing it is! I joined Influenster back in March of 2012 and have been loving it ever since! The program is great and the best thing is that it's absolutely 100% FREE! You can join and take surveys to qualify for different types of "voxboxes". A voxbox is basically a pretty box which is mailed to you (once you qualify & are chosen to receive one) filled with products to test out and give your opinion on. They vary depending on your answers to different surveys.

For example, if you have a dog and you "unlock" the dog owner badge by answering a survey, you will most likely qualify for a voxbox that has a product for dog owners. It is also important to keep your profile updated and your account linked with all your social media so you have a better chance of staying in the loop when they announce new programs and opportunities.

Speaking of which, I recently saw a facebook post by Influenster regarding a VoxBox Video Contest they were having and I, of course, immediately submitted my video entry (see below).

It was a fun extra activity that you weren't required to do, but I decided to participate and guess what? My video was chosen as one of the lucky winners! I was so excited and thankful! My friends, family and other Influensters voted for my entry! I just recently received my prize - a MEGA VOXBOX filled with great products and wanted to share that with you also (see below)!

Keep in mind that all those products were absolutely FREE! 

I'm thankful for the chance to be an Influenster and I will continue to participate and try out new products! 

Thanks again Influenster!


What's in my Suave Family Kit?

By now you guys must know how much I love Influenster, right?
Well, let me tell you that I am really excited to share with you the latest VoxBox I received:

Not everyone who qualified for this one, received the same products in their VoxBox, so it's very exciting to see what products other "influensters" got in theirs.

My box included a product for me, one for my husband, and one for my little one!

I already posted my UNBOXING VIDEO and it even includes my husband trying out the Suave Professionals Styling Paste he received (picture below)! Check it out!

 The product that was sent for my use was the Suave Professionals Keratin Infusion "Dry Shampoo". It smells delicious! I tested a small amount, and I really liked it, and I will definitely give you guys an update when I have used it a little bit more!

The bottle/can I received is 5 oz. and says that it is for "All Hair Types".

Also, wanted to point out that all 3 products are available at Walmart for the best value!


The last product in my VoxBox was the Suave Kids Styling Gel. It is the 7 oz. bottle and it's in the scent "Cool Ocean Blast". My 9 year old loves it. It holds his hair in place and has a refreshing scent. At the end of a long day, we did notice that he had some white flakes in his hair, which is the only negative thing.  One other good thing I wanted to mention about the gel is that it's "Alcohol Free" and that makes all the difference in the world because it doesn't "dry up" the hair.

Well, I will continue to try out these products and keep you guys updated!

As always, if you'd like more information about how you can become part of Influenster you can visit their page or leave a comment below and I will be happy to answer! The best thing about Influenster is that everything is absolutely free! You get to test out complimentary products and share your opinion with others!

Sinful Colors Sinful Shine Nail Polish - Influenster

I ♥ nail polish and as you may have already guessed, I got a complimentary nail polish in my Sunkissed VoxBox from Influenster for testing and review purposes! It is the Sinful Colors Sinful Shine with Gel Tech sold exclusively at Walgreens. They have 32 absolutely amazing shades available for a limited time. Price is $2.99! 

The formula is so thick and smooth, I only had to use 1 coat and did not need a base or top coat! It dries very quickly so I was done in a flash! As a mommy, saving time while I make my nails look pretty is an added bonus.

The shade I received in my VoxBox is #1226 "Dark Room" (Even the name is cute!) It's actually a beautiful shiny black. It's the first thing I tried out when I opened my VoxBox. 

(this is closer to the real shade)
I loved it so much, I had to run out to Walgreens today to buy another shade!  The shade I chose is called "Most Sinful" which is a rich blue color (don't know why it looks so light in the picture below) I ♥ love ♥ it! It's perfect for the summer because it reminds me of the ocean. I highly recommend this nail polish! It's true what they say about Sinful Color Sinful Shine nail polish: "it's 5X shinier than a patent leather shoe!"
(the blue shade looks too light in this picture)

Dr. Scholl's® For Her High Heel Insoles - Influenster

Have you ever worn high heels for a special night out and after just a little while wished you hadn't? Well, that's happened to me many times because my feet start hurting shortly after I put on heels. So when I opened up my Influenster Sunkissed VoxBox and saw the Dr. Scholl's® For Her High Heel Insoles, I was excited to try them out! I'd never worn any type of insoles before and now I'm wondering why it took me so long to discover this! They are awesome! I want to put them in all my shoes!

These insoles have an ultra-soft gel arch which works to shift pressure off the ball of your foot and they feel really nice on your feet. Another thing I like is that they have an adhesive which keeps the insoles in place, but they don't ruin your shoe. They are available in Women's Sizes 6-10 and the price is $10.99 I would definitely recommend these if you like wearing heels, but don't wear them because your feet hurt too much. I did note that the first shoes I tried out were a bit "tight" on my feet after I inserted the insoles, so I had to try them out on another pair of heels.

*Please note that I received this product complimentary for testing purposes from Influenster in my Sunkissed VoxBox (#SunVoxBox).
