Mid July PinchMe Box -- Free Samples and Coupons

I was finally able to order a box of samples again from PINCHme, after well over a year of some technical issue that wouldn't allow me to verify and therefore log in to my account. 
To say I was pretty excited when I finally received a box of samples again is an understatement.   

In this PINCHme box I got 2 different Starbucks Plus Caffeine K-cups and a coupon.
 A Garnier Fructis Smoothing Treat 1 Minute Hair Mask with Avocado Extract.

A sample of Power Beets and a coupon, and vouchers for money off of my first purchase from both HelloFresh and Graze box subscription services. 


Overall I was happy with this box, and I'm very excited to be back at it and trying out new products. If you received a PINCHme box as well, what was your favorite sample to test out this time? For those of you that aren't members yer, you can sign up with my link here -- JOIN NOW!

Influester Spice VoxBox: Products Reviews

Today I'll be talking about the Influenster Spice VoxBox

As I've mentioned before, I absolutely love being a member of Influenster. I've been given the opportunity to try out so many amazing and different products thanks to this awesome company. Every single VoxBox I've received has been great, I've never been disappointed!

Here's a look at what I saw when I opened the box...

The Spice VoxBox contained a lot of great different products, it was semi fall themed, and completely amazing. Here is a collage containing a photo of each item I received to try out and share my opinions of. 

Influenster Spice VoxBox Contents: 
- Botanics Organics Hydrating Day Cream    SRP $12.99
- Foot Petals: Give 'em the Boot    $18.95
- SinfulColors SinfulShine Nail Polish    $2.99
- Good Health Veggie Straws 6.75oz    $3.99
- SoapBox Shampoo and Conditioner 16oz    $5.99
- Yogi Tea 16ct    $4.99
- Not Your Mother's Whip it Up Cream Styling Mousse 2.1oz    $3.00

Foot Petals: Give 'em the Boot
I put these awesome insoles in my go-to tall black boots that I wear most often to work when it's cold out. They make my boots much more comfortable and cozy! I work in a before and after school program at an elementary school, and I have to put the kids on the bus in the early morning every day. It gets SO COLD! And I have poor circulation which makes it that much harder on my body. These Give 'em the Boot insoles really help keep me warmer.

Yogi Tea  
Yogi tea offers so many different blends of tea that aid in many different areas health and wellness. They taste great, they are healthy and natural, and they all come with a great message! Reading the tag on each tea bag is one of my favorite parts of enjoying a hot cup of yogi tea.

SinfulColors SinfulShine Nail Polish
I'm a big fan of SinfulColors nail polish. This 2 step manicure is just another awesome product they offer! The color polish contains gel tech and then you use the top coat and you're done! The removal process is easy too, you won't be using a whole bag of cotton balls like with some nail polish brands. Also, check out that color! It's an awesome metallic purple called Mystique.

Not Your Mother's Whip it Up Cream Styling Mousse 
This mousse is great! It's vanilla cupcake scented, and it's super moisturizing which helps to control frizz and thicken your hair. The texture is different but fantastic and I really love it. I'm definitely adding this to my arsenal of hair products! Not Your Mother's wins again.
Botanics Organics Hydrating Day Cream
 Well I'm a fan. I have super dry skin in the winter and using this cream really helped. It's 81% organic; made with nourishing rosehip, jojoba oil and cocoa butter, it softens and moisturizes for 24 hours. I love that it is made with active plant extracts.

SoapBox Shampoo and Conditioner
Soapbox makes fantastic shampoo and conditioner, and they also make a difference. For every product they sell, they give either one bar of soap or one month of clean water to a person in need. You can find their items at Target. When you make your purchase, enter your Hope Code from the bottle on their website to see where your product purchase made a change in the world. How great is that?! Their shampoo and conditioner are also great in their own rite. They are free of sulfates, parabens, EDTA and artifical colorants. Love them!

Good Health Veggie Straws (Source)
I ate these before I could take a picture, oops! I love that they are made with so many amazing healthy ingredients. I really need more snacks that are good for me. Non-GMO verification is also important to me. Such a great company!

Jewelry Swap, Hiking and Concerts

I was so lucky to be contacted by an awesome girl on Instagram about doing a handmade jewelry swap with her. I gladly accepted! She asked for 2 of my November birthstone wrap bracelets, and I got this amazing mandala beaded wrap bracelet in return.

I've finally been able to visit Bear Hill in Cragsmoor, NY again, one of my absolute favorite places in the world. Just look at that view!!

I went to a few concerts at Bethel Woods Center for the Arts in Bethel, NY with my mom. We saw Lynard Skynard and The Marshall Tucker Band, Chicago and The Doobie Brothers, Earth Wind & Fire, Jackson Browne. Such great shows!

Influenster Sunshine VoxBox: Product Reviews

I love Influenster, which I'm sure you all know by now. I have been a member for over 3 years now, and never have I been disappointed by any of the VoxBoxes I've received. 
Influenster is "your destination for product discovery and reviews." 

Sunshine VoxBox Contents
 The Influenster Sunshine VoxBox includes:
  • Dickinson's Daily Refreshingly Clean Cleansing Cloths (and coupons)
  • Vaseline Intensive Care Spray Moisturizer Aloe Soothe 
  • Blue Diamond Almonds Bold Sriracha
  • Infusium23 Moisture Replenisher Leave-In Smoothing Creme
  • Sinful Colors Nail Polish in Southern Belle
  • barkTHINS (coupon for a free product) 
barhTHINS Dark Chocolate Pretzel with Sea Salt
Oh my god. BarkTHINS, I love you. I can't even tell you how good these were! First of all, I love chocolate, and pretzels, and sea salt. Clearly this was going to be a winner. As you can see in the picture, I ate the entire bag before I even remembered to take a picture. Don't judge me.  -_- 

Blue Diamond Almonds Bold Sriracha

These almonds are absolutely delicious. Seriously. I don't even like spicy food so I was super reluctant to try these; but after I opened them I couldn't stop. I ate the whole bag. Now I finally understand the whole Sriracha craze. I'm just a little bit late to the game, I know.

#ColorOutsidetheLines Mani with Sinful Colors Professional Nail Color
I love to do my nails by myself, and I'm always looking for something fun and new to try out. I was super excited to find Sinful Colors nail polish in this voxbox! The color is brighter than what I typically use, but I ended up really loving it! I added black and silver camo print over the Southern Belle, and I'm pretty happy with the result.

Dickinson's  Daily Refreshingly Clean Cleansing Cloths
These came at the perfect time. I'm super lazy at night and anything that make my night time routine faster is my best friend. I've been using Dickinson's Witch Hazel for a while now, and these wipes are great! I use them to clean my face at night in bed. Yep, perfect lazy person product. 

Vaseline Spray Moisturizer 
My brother went to the beach the day that this box arrived at my door. When he came home, he looked quite a bit like a tomato. A very angry, pained tomato. I handed him this spray, and after trying it, then reading the directions and doing it again the right way, he decided he was a fan. He said his skin felt cooler and less painful. Yay Vaseline Intensive Care Aloe Soothe! 

Infusium 23 Moisture Replenisher Leave-In Smoothing Creme with Avocado & Olive Oil
I have a LOT of hair. It's also thick and has a mind of it's own. It goes between curly and wavy depending on its mood. And it's always big, always. I use smoothing products religiously. I typically have a bottle of one in my purse. Seeing this product in the voxbox was pretty exciting. I've used Infusium23 products before and I liked them, so I had high hopes for this smoothing creme. I tried it, I loved it! It has a good texture and pleasant scent. I like the bottle design and size, and it's easy to apply.

Klout Perk Review: Pasta Chips

Klout recently sent me an awesome Perk! I was super excited to receive a package with a bag of Garlic Olive Oil Pasta Chips. 

I rarely eat large meals, I'm much more apt to snack all day long. Pasta happens to be one of my favorite foods, and I'm a big fan of chips. These Pasta Chips are kind of the perfect snack option for me. Especially since I'm trying to cut down on unhealthy snacking and I think these are a smarter choice.

"Get the skinny on dipping! Pasta Chips are NonGMO, All Natural Ingredients, Oven Baked, Kosher Certified, 60% Less Fat than a potato chip, 20% Less Fat than pita chips, Only 120 calories per serving and made with Premium Semolina Flour."

I liked the idea of the chips, they were a great size and texture. I even likes the flavor, it was just too much for me. My brother and dad gladly snatched the bag and finished it!

Find Pasta Chips all over the internet!

Simplifying and Selling!

In an effort to simplify my life, I've been doing a lot of organizing and purging. I've gone through everything quickly once and gathered all of the things I haven't used, worn or thought about in a while. I threw out the junk, donated what I could, brought some items to a consignment shop, and have recently started listing items on eBay.

The latest area to get downsized is my craft supplies. I inherited a ton of things, like beads and ribbon, from various people who know I enjoy creating things. I've always been one to just keep stockpiling the goodies, but I'm tired of having so much stuff. So, I went through my crafting items and weeded out the things I really won't use or don't have an interest in. It feels good! 

Mixed Bead Lot

 Now, I just need to get it all out of my house. I'm finally listing it  online, and will hopefully be shipping a lot of the items to people  who can actually use them, and soon. (If you're interested in  checking out any of my eBay listings, check out my seller page.)

I can't wait to have less stuff, and more room. Hopefully it means less stress, and more cash! I can certainly use more cash, to create less stress too. (Paying off bills and all, you know how it is.)
