Influenster: Hawaiian Tropic Silk Hydration Review

Hello Everyone!
Hope everyone is having a great week!
Like I said in my last post, I received a Vox Box from Influenster about a month ago to review.

 Hawaiian Tropic Silk Hydration™ Lotion Sunscreen SPF 30
 Also available in SPF 12, 30, 50!   
With its ultra-luxurious hydrating silk ribbons, Hawaiian Tropic Silk Hydration™ lotion sunscreen nourishes and pampers skin while providing broad spectrum UVA and UVB protection, and 12-hour moisturization when out in the sun.     
Where to Buy  You can find Hawaiian Tropic products at most major retailers.  Suggested retail price: $8.99 for a 6oz bottle

The swirls you see in the picture, is not the design of the bottle, the lotion is swirled like that. Isn't CUTE! I have a face sunscreen in SPF 30 for sensitive skin and love it, so when I received this product, I already loved it. Until I applied it to my skin, my heart sank when I started to spread it on my arms and chest. It felt very watery, like a cheap lotion and though that it wouldn't last more than an hour. But it didn't, it kept my skin moisturized for 3.5 hours and because it wasn't thick, it sank into my skin faster than most sunscreens. Did I mention how this smells? It's a Hawaiian Tropic product, so you know it doesn't smell like a normal sunscreen. It's smells so good, I want to say it smells like pina colada, but no overwhelming coconut smell, which I'm happy about.
If you received this box or have this product, let me know what you think.

Basket O Haul- July 2012

Hello Everyone!
Here another haul! So many nice things and for great prices. I have been buying so many eyeshadows, That I have over filled my drawer. So I have decided to go on a "No Buy" on eyeshadows and I'm going to attepmed to make a dent in my collection by my birthday. So I will try to post as many FOTDs, to help the process.

This month was full of a bunch of first, I found OPI nail polishes at Target. I was walking down the aisle with my Justin(Hubby) and I was talking to him about eye liner pens, when I saw something out of the corner of my eye that I couldn't belive! OPI AT TARGET! I stopped and walked backwards to the shelf and sure enough, there they were, just sitting there, half of them were limited edition bottles, like this one, from the Katy Perry collection.

First of the many Zoya polishes I will obtain in my life, I love the colors they have, I have my eye on the Wednesday polish :)

I love these lip balm stains, I want them in every shade!

Thanks for stopping by!

Comic Con 2012

Hello Everyone!
So as promised, I have the pictures of Comic Con week! Now if you don't know about Comic Con, it's basically IMATS for people who love comic books. If you don't care for this sort of thing, then you can skip this post, I will have a beauty related post after this one. Well, This was the first time my husband has been to Comic Con, I have attended a handful of times, I was really happy he could get the time off work. We bought tickets for Friday, but we wanted to pick them up a day before, to avoid having to go through the registration on friday and because we wanted to get into the after parties later that take part on thrusday night.

Hello everyone!
I hope everyone is having a great week, I currently recovering from camp, mainly from being sore, so I have been taking easy, relaxing, doing my nails :)

I use to have a set like this when I was a teen and I really enjoyed. I have come to learn that they 9 different sets, I WANT THEM ALL!!

Basket O Haul June 2012

Hello Everyone! So because I had a lot of going on in july, if you watched this video, then you know. If not, I went to Comic Con, it was lot's of fun, I will upload pictures from comic con too! Right after the Comic Con, I spent the next two weeks, volunteering at a Cub scout camp, that my sister was running and that was as, if not more tiring as Comic Con, but it was a lot of fun. I was going to try and upload a tutorial before everything got busy for me, but never got the chance to edit it, I'm still going to upload it though, just later this week. Now I realized that you can't really see the swatches in the video very well, so I decided to take pictures and post them here I will continue to do this and them to the video as well posting them here. If you would like to watch the video, it's right below :)

FOTD- L'Oreal Forest smokes

Hello everyone! I have a face of the day for you guys! It's been so long since I have done one of these. Well main product that I used today, got for a steal! It is the L'Oreal quad in forest smokes and got this from target for just a 2$ It was on clearance for 2.98$ and I had a coupon for a 1$ off L'Oreal. But I didn't that there was that there was a target coupon for a 1$ off L'Oreal, that would have made it a 1$! But that's okay, I will go back for the rest of them :) But here is the look and mind you, this is the first time in 10 years that I have tried L'Oreal eye shadows. I will say that they have stepped up their game! I love how their eye shadows feel!

Life, New Project, Savings, Sales, Coupons and other things

Sorry for not posting in a while, life got a little hectic, finances began to tighten up, which is why I will not be attending IMATS LA this year :( But I will make it to IMATS next year, for all those who were able to go, I hope you travel safely and share your trip with me in the comments below. Now due to the bit of financial hiccup that I am right now, hopefully for little while, I have been looking for ways to make every dollar count. Hence the reason for this post, I have been obsessed with coupons lately, clipping, searching, calculating how to make every coupon count, everytime I go grocery shopping. But I never put two and two together until I came across a blog, called Nouveau Cheap. It's a blog dedicated to saving money when buying cosmetics. So I thought that I would make it my business, to try and post about sales, clearance and other great findings at low prices, like today!

Reason why I haven't posted anything in a while- 1#

Okay, so it's been a while since I have posted anything in a while. I volunteer a lot of my time in my nephew's cub scout pack and in my niece's girl scout, I'm actually the daisy leader for her troop. And it's always a blast, like today, We had a "Round-UP", which is their recruiting event. We a had the kids make cars out of cardboard boxes and had them race around the track like little NASCAR cars and the parents played the part of the kids pit crews, it was so much fun. I was the Pace car, as you could probably tell. At the end, the adults raced the cars they had made and had their kids be their pit crews.

FOTD- Bronze Green

Hello! Have another FOTD, I meant to post this for St. Patricks day, but stuff plied on me and I never got the chance. Working on balancing things I need to have done on a day to day basis and at the same time trying to find time to do the things I love.

First Impression- Romance by Ralph Lauren

Hello Everyone! Have another First impression for you guys, this one will be for Romance by Ralph Lauren, which from talking to my sister-in-law, they have a men version of this. From first the first whiffing it, I sensed a herbal sweet scent, it reminded me of when I would run through a meadow in the first weeks of spring as a child. It's a very flowery fresh scent, something perfect to wear if you are going out and you don't want to wear something heavy.

First impression- Euphoria by Calvin klein

Hello everyone! I have for you another first impression! This one will be for Calvin Klein's Euphoria and let me tell you, this one just punched me in the face, but in a good way. When first trying it, I noticed a flowery sweet scent and the perfume proceeded to knock my socks off. It had a strong yet soothing fragrance that I wasn't able to put my finger on it, very mysterious. So if you want to catch some ones attention this would be a good fragrance to keep in your collection, because it's strong enough to lure someone in but subtle enough to keep them from running away because of a headache.

FOTD- Purple Liner

OMG, it's been too long!I don't know if I mention this already, but my old camera pooped out on me and left me with my crappy camera on my phone. It didn't go so well, so bad that my husband took it into his hands and bought me a camera. I was going to buy one, things would just come up and I would have to push to the next day. It is Kodak EasyShare Touch and so far I love it, I'm not crazy about it only using a micro sd card, only I'm afraid of breaking the tiny thing or losing it :( But so neither has happened.

First Impression- Beautiful by Estee Lauder

Okay, well I'm not going to lie, this is a big disappointment for me, I was very excited to try this new fragrance by Estee Lauder, since I loved Sensuous Nude, the recent fragrance I tried from their company. But the moment this scent made it's way up my nostrils, I was ready to puke, which is a first for me. I swore if you would have blind folded me and told me this was an Estee Lauder perfume, I would have not believed you. If you any of have ever had washed your hands with "Dial" soap and then smelled your hands right after, but that is what first came to mind when I took the first whiff, after carefully smelling it a few more times without gagging, I noticed a sort of herbal hint of smell, but it is so overpowered by the "Dial" smell that you probably will not get to pick it up.

FOTD- Aqua liner & OOTD- Corset and Jeans

So I'm doing a first for this blog, I have an outfit of the day. It was so nice outside today, so I decided to walk to Ross, it's not very far from where I live.

Wednesday, April 4, 2012


Please excuse the picture quality of these pictures, my camera is acting all kinds of crazy, I've had that camera for like 7 years and my husband thinks I need to get a new one. So until then, I'm stuck using my crappy phone camera. Oh, and excuse the mess behind me :P

Rite Aid Haul!

So the Rite aid in my town announced that they were having a 50% going out of business sale, I'm very sad, I love Rite Aid's sherbet ice cream and now I can't walk to the Rite Aid and get cone anymore :(  But of course, I can't pass an opportunity to advantage of a 50% off sale. And Since I can't record any videos for a while, I have decided to post this haul on my blog.

First impression- Chance by Chanel

Hello everyone! Hope you guys are having a great weekend, I have another first impression for the fragrance, Chance by Chanel. I have a lot of respect for Chanel, from their trendy clothing line to their gorgeous cosmetic line (everytime I swatch anything from Chanel at sephora, I am mesmerized) to their wonderful fragrances, which with a single spray, can make any girl feel elegant. Which pains me to say that I was not impressed with this fragrance. When taking the first whiff, it smelled like a generic body spray. This fragrance gives a sweet and flowery scent, but it's subtle. The notes for this fragrance are: patchouli, musk, vetiver, orris, vanilla and jasmine. For a brand as elite as Chanel, for them to put out a fragrance that smells like something you could probably find at bath & body works, makes me want to say "really?"
