Q-tips® Precision Tips™

I received this product complimentary for testing and review purposes from Influenster.
Q-Tips Precision Tips are a well known brand. Influenster sent me the Precision Tips and I have to say that they work wonders. I love painting my nails and I am always looking for something to help clean up my makeup look when I have messed up somewhere. The tips are not like your normal Q-Tips these are made with pointed tips (at both ends) they are perfect for applying concealer under the eye, getting rid of nail polish along the edges, eyeliner and much more. I have used the tips for applying bridal makeup, when I say that the bride started to cry, I grabbed one of the tips and held it to the tear duct and it instantly absorbed the tears and left her makeup looking flawless.

Below is how I used the tips for applying nail polish. I wanted something fun and bright and decided dots and stripes would be perfect. I dipped the tips into the colors I wanted and it was so quick and so easy using these tips.

The next thing that I will be trying is pefecting RED LIPS! I have a feeling that these tips are going to work wonders!

Below is some more information on Q-Tips Precision Tips!

Tips Using Q-tips® Precision Tips™:

The Ultimate Smokey Eye Look
To achieve a quick smokey eye, draw a thick line close to your lash line using your eyeliner and smudge upwards with a Q-tips® Precision Tips™ cotton swab to create a “smokey” effect.

Dab Three Dots to Hide Under Eye Circles
Hide under eye circles by using a Q-tips® Precision Tips™ cotton swab to dab on three dots of concealer. Use the other end to blend for a seamless finish.

Apply Fake Lashes
Use Q-tips® Precision Tips™ cotton swabs to help apply fake lashes! Start by applying a dab of lash adhesive to the tip. Keep the tip close to the lash line and use it to guide the application of the faux lash strip.

Mask a Blemish
To quickly hide a blemish, simply moisten one end of your Q-tips® Precision Tips™ cotton swab with an astringent that contains salicylic acid and lightly dab onto the blemish.  Use the other end as a makeup applicator to apply an oil-free concealer to mask the blemish.
Remove Puffiness and Soothe Skin
Help remove puffiness under the eyes with Q-tips® Precision Tips™ cotton swabs. Place a small bag of Q-tips ® Precision Tips™ cotton swabs in the freezer that have been dampened with water.  Once chilled, roll under the eyes to alleviate any puffiness and soothe swollen skin.
Precision Powdering
Rather than applying powder on the entire face, use your Q-tips® Precision Tips™ cotton swabs to dab loose powder only where you need it – for example, the center of the forehead, the sides of the nose and the chin.
Keep Your Perfect Pout in Place
Keep lip color from bleeding by using Q-tips® Precision Tips™ cotton swabs to apply loose translucent powder along the outer edge of the lips.
The At-Home Manicure
Give yourself an at-home manicure and pedicure with Q-tips® cotton swabs or Q-tips® Precision Tips™ cotton swabs by lightly moistening the end with nail polish remover to instantly erase nail polish from your cuticles.

Dr. Scholl's® For Her Ball of Foot

Dr. Scholl's For Her Ball of Foot! Are a life savor for ladies who love: Heels, Flats, Boots, Wedges and the list goes on. These cushions are for ANY shoe! I have a rave about them because I am NOT NOT NOT a heels, wedges person. I am always and mainly in Converse or Toms. Every now and then I will wear my Dr. Martens but something came over me and I purchased wedges. Here's the thing, I ordered 6 1/4 inch wedges, I am 5'10 on the nose, in my wedges I am 6'4. I am tall and curvy. So me wearing these shoes for a girls night out, they were going to tear into my feet. I started breaking in my wedges but Saturday came quick and I had to wear them with my dress. I remembered that Influenster sent me the Dr. Scholl's Ball of Foot cushions, I placed them inside of my wedges and instantly the pressure was off of the ball of my foot in these new shoes. I kept them on all night. I honestly forgot I was wearing wedges, due to how comfy my feet were. The plus side, when I got home 6 hours later, NO BLISTERS! NO RUBBING! My feet were just fine! The next morning, same thing, nothing. I am amazed and will be putting these in the bridal baskets for my God sisters' wedding.

Here is a link to Walmart to purchase your own and try these out! They are $5.47

I received this product for reviewing purposes. I was not paid by Dr. Scholl's or Influenster for this review!

The Taste: Tuesday at 8|7c on ABC

The Taste season begins with blind auditions of both professional and amateur cooks during which four judges, who double as mentors, taste one spoonful of food from each contestant prior to knowing who cooked it or what all the ingredients are. Each judge decides whether or not they would like the contestant on his or her team by pressing a button (green for yes or red for no); the buttons are hidden from the other judges (although some decisions are revealed to the home audience). The four then meet the contestant and press a button to reveal their votes. If exactly one judge votes yes, that contestant automatically joins that judge's four-member team. If more than one judge votes yes, the contestant chooses among them.
Once the 16 contestants are chosen, each episode consists of team and individual challenges with various themes. Each episode ends with the mentors tasting all the competitors' dishes without knowing what it is, how it was prepared, who created it, or whom they will be eliminating. The contestant with the worst bite of food is eliminated from the competition.

I have watched every episode so far and this show is amazing! I love the fact that there is a challenge before the main challenge. This show main have a few traits from another show "Chopped" on the food network, but I have to say that this show is so much better. The contestants are in a team of 4 with one of the judges as mentors in their kitchen. It gives a more personal feel to each kitchen. You have a one on one with your mentor. The other thing that I love about this show is that the judging is fair. For the blind tasting challenge: each kitchen every contestant prepares a dish, once each dish is complete the teammates of that kitchen tastes all of the dishes and choose a spoon to send out for the main judging - to represent that kitchen and their selves. Each week there is something that has to be paired with the dishes that are prepared. The main challenge: free game! Everyone prepares their own dishes to send out for the mentors to blind taste. They have no idea who cooked what, they go through each and every dish and pick the best and the worst of the week. 
Face it this show is THE VOICE of cooking! I love love love this show & you may too! 

Please leave your response and comments below! Make sure you catch The Taste on Tuesdays 8/7c on ABC
I have linked last weeks episode below! Enjoy! Happy tasting!

Fantastic read!

Fantastic books. One of the best books I’ve read in a while.
Hiding In Sunshine is a fantastic read. I couldn’t put it down. It is very well written.
I loved the strong character development, and how the authors kept you on the edge of your seat. As I was reading this, it felt like a movie was being played in my head. You can picture everything based on the details/clues that the book gives you. When your reading, you find yourself pausing and really thinking about what’s going to happen to the characters next and trying to piece things together, but the authors trick you and twist the story in another direction, throwing our minds for a loop. It’s exciting! It’s very realistic. I also loved how extended the vocabulary is in this book, I had to stop and pull out my dictionary to look up a few of the words. I LOVE THAT! I highly recommend this book to anyone that is looking for a thriller with a twist kind of book. A+++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++
Side note - you really do find yourself thinking about the characters outside of reading this amazing book. I felt like I was one of those crime scene investigators on Law n Order or NCIS trying to piece everything together. :)

Sole Society Harper Oxford Flats

I will be reviewing Sole Society. I am doing this review for Influenster. I was sent a discount code to use for a pair of shoes from Sole Society. I was not paid nor sent the shoes for free.

Sole Society is a great and fun website that goes above and beyond to keep up with the latest fashion trends and personal style. A pair of shoes to go with any outfit any season. Now I am a not a heels kind of girl, but if I was Sole Society would be the place I went for my heels. So many colors, styles, prints to chose from. They have booties, wedges, boots, flats....the list goes on and on. The pair of shoes that I fell in love with were the Harper Oxford flats. They are $49.95 but with my 25 dollars off code INFLUENSTER25 made them $24.95. Thats a steal!

Pinned Image
These are the Harper Oxford flats. I love them. Sole Society has them in two different prints. I loved the animal print ones as well. (I plan on ordering those as well) These shoes are right up my alley for my style. I love leggings, tunics, over sized shirts, shorts...things of that nature. I love to be comfortable. Heres an example

Goody Quikstyle Brush paddle styler review

I will reviewing the Goody Quikstyle paddle brush. I received this product from Influenster for testing purposes. I was not paid for this review. I received this product as part of the Holiday Voxbox 2012.

Goody! A well known brand for hair products. I have been using hair ties, brushes and pins since I was a little girl and it's great that they are still living up to their name. It's a brand that I trust and will continue to use. I have a stock of pins and hair ties (yes I love them that much.) I was super happy when I saw that this paddle brush was going to be apart of the Holiday Voxbox. The brush has microfiber bristles, at first it can look a little funny and you would think to pull the blue cushion out, but don't! I dried my hair in less than 5 minutes, while using this brush. My hair holds a lot of water and to get a brush that would absorb most of that and cut my drying time in half was perfect for me. It did not pull my hair either. I love this brush. I will have to try the rounded brush next.

Information on this product: Goody Quikstyle Brush Paddle of Half Round Styler) $11.99
Once again, Goody brings innovation to your hair routine! Go from wet to beautifully styled hair faster than ever! Super absorbent microfiber bristles removes up to 30% of water as you style. It's like a towel and a brush in one.

EBoost - The natural energy booster - review

I received this product from Influsnter for testing purposes. I was not paid for this review.

I was suppose to receive this in my Holiday Voxbox but there was no EBoost in there for me. Luckly I had to go to the store to pick up a few items and they had some EBoost in stock. The pharmacy had these in singles packets, so I purchased one of each flavor they had available. I loved all the flavors except Acai Pomegranate. It was gritty and not a good taste to me. My favorite was Orange and Pink Lemonade. They seriously taste like Orange fizzy drink and a fizzy pink lemonade. I could drink them all day. I felt very alert when I had to wake up for my morning walk with my dogs and had plenty of natural energy to get some last minute shopping done. I will continue to repurchase these in the future! These are so yummy!

EBoost natural energy booster - $28.00 for a box of 20 effervescent powders, $39.00 for a box of 30 powders, $39.00 for a box of 12 shots. EBoost will boost your mood, focus, and immunity with natural ingredients and no crash. As a shot or an easy to mix powder and in four flavors, you'll feel great wheather you choose Orange, Pink Lemonade, Acai Pomegranate, or Super Berry. & with all the hustle and bustle of the holidays, you'll certainly need a boost!
Boosting the world, one fizz at a time! EBOOST: Energy, Immunity, Recovery & Focus.

NYC Liquid Lipshine review - Nude York City

I received this product for testing purposes from Influenster, as park of their Holiday Voxbox 2012 program. I was not paid to do this review.

NYC New York Color Liquid Lipshine - is a lipgloss that is packed with Vitamin E to provide a great shine and a moisturizing feel. The formula is non-sticky, super shiney and soft. These Liquid Lipshines are available in 10 trendy colors from nudes to berries & fuscsias. A very affordable gloss found at any shopping store or drug store. The price is $2.49 for this gloss.

The color I received in my VoxBox was Nude York City - I tried on the color right away, I will admit I did like the color on me, but the way this gloss just shines and how moisturizing it was made me go out and purchase Prospect Pink and City's Clear. These glosses are the perfect size for on the go and no touch ups were needed. I went out with a group of friends and they kept stealing my gloss! There is a perfect shade for everyone. I honestly hope that NYC comes out with more shades ( I hope in the red family) I would love to see what they can do with a bright ruby red color. I love these glosses and can't wait to see more. Remember though that a little goes a long way with these. Do not apply to much or else the formula can get a bit tacky. That is my only con about this product. The rest is up for you to decide! Great product for a great price!

Quaker Oats Medleys Oatmeal+ - Peach Almond Oatmeal review

I will reviewing Quaker Real Medleys Oatmeal+. I received this product for testing purposes from Influenster as part of their Holiday Voxbox 2012. I was not paid to do this review.

Who doesn't love or grew up on Quaker Oatmeal. The different flavors and I love the fact that every packet of oatmeal can be mixed with another to get an explosion of flavor. The Real Medleys flavor I received is Peach Almond. I loved this oatmeal. The peaches were sweet and the almonds gave the oatmeal that great extra texture. It was super easy to cook, add hot water to the container, stir and let it cook. I read on the package that there are 4 different grains/ multi-grains. The flavor is different from the Peaches' n Cream oatmeal. This oatmeal had large chunks of sweet peaches. Clean up was easy, just tossing a spoon in the sink. :) This is a repurchase for me!

For more information on this product - Quaker Real Medleys Oatmeal+ $1.79 per cup
Simply the best oatmeal ever - and you can enjoy it on the go! Whole grain oats, rye, barley and wheat are mixed with large chunks of real fruit & nuts in a convenient single-serve cup. Just add hot water or microwave and you can have a delicious breakfast anytime, anywhere.!/Quaker/app_211625668944148

Kiss Nail Dress - Review

I will be reviewing the Kiss Nail Dress in Shrug. I received this product as part of the Holiday VoxBox 2012 from Influenster for testing purposes. I was not paid to do this review.

I have to say that at first trying to size all of the strips to the correct size of my fingers, it just was not working for me. They would either be to big or to small. So instead I got creative and cut the strips in half and put them on my tips. I loved the way this turned out. I got about two tips for every strip. I did strips on 8 of my fingers and put a whole strip on my pinkies. Applied top coat (even though it's built in - I didn't want the strips to lift) and tada! All done! This was super easy and fun. I have more than enough strips to save for later, if I decide I want to use this print again. I loved the design Shrug and can't wait to try out more. These strips are super fun and easy, if you are going out and forgot to do your nails or don't want to get your nails done (because the time or money) these are a great alternative.

About this product - Kiss Nail Dress: Price $6.99
Ultimate nail fashion for tips and toes! Just peel , apply and shape for a manicure that lasts up to a week. On in minutes, off in seconds without remover. Nail Dress is available in 21 different styles, many of them featuring 3-dimensional jeweled designs. Skip the topcoat, Nail Dress has it built in.
