Sally Hansen Triple Shine Review

Today I tried out a new nail polish called Triple Shine by Sally Hansen, thanks to Influenster who sent it to me in the Violet VoxBox to review.
Here are 2 photos of the polish I received to try out. The photo on the left is the bottle right out of the box. The one on the right is showing you how the polish looks without the cap that is on over the brush handle. I took the cap off while using the polish because it was  more comfortable to use that way.

The color I received to try was #390, a glitter filled blue shade called Sparks Fly. 

One of the first things I noticed about this nail polish was the brush design. I like how it is a more flat brush, which provides better coverage in less applications. 

Below are 3 photos side by side showing how my nails looked after one, two and three coats of polish.

I think the polish is pretty transparent, and in the future I would probably use it over another polish to get a more opaque look.
 Thank You Influenster for letting me try another awesome product!

Happy Holidays!

Hey everyone, I hope you all had a fantastic holiday! 

I'm still getting back into the swing of things after all of the excitement, but I'll be back soon with some more mail, freebies, etc.

Mail Call 12/14

While I don't think I'll be getting any mail with all of this snow today, I do want to share what I got this past week with you all! 

 I got a DVD and three...towels? They are prizes I ordered from SheKnows. (I plan to sew the "towels" in to pillow cases.) They are switching to a new rewards program and any points you have now will be gone once the switch is made.

I received my first PinchMe box! SUPER excited about it. I actually wrote a whole post about joining this new site.

I'm super excited to get my second PinchMe box, it should be here any day! If you haven't joined this new free sample site yet, you have got to check it out! Leave a comment below and let me know how you'd like to be invited (Facebook, Twitter or email) and I'll be sure to send an invite ASAP! 

My Influenster Violet VoxBox arrived, and I could not be happier with it! I got an awesome Goody hairbrush and headband, as well as a Sally Hansen Nail Polish and a SoyJoy bar to try out. My reviews of these items are coming soon, so stay tuned!

MyPoints sent me the Panera Gift Card I had ordered with my points, I can't wait to go have some Broccoli & Cheddar soup!  

Now these items all came last week, but I was really sick with a nasty virus and stuck in bed. 

First up is a great package from the Carmex Blog Squad containing their new, fun moisturizing lip sticks. 

Then I got an issue of Cosmo magazine, from a free subscription that I ordered with points from a reward program. Sadly, I wasn't even able to read this while trapped in bed, my head hurt too much to focus. 

Finally, the best and worst mail at the same time. It's awesome because I love Nutella and this is basically Jif's version...Amazing! But, I wasn't able to eat it! It was a week filled with saltines and ice chips. Ugh.

Make sure you check out my latest post with lots of great things to know for earning online this week! 

Semi-Productive Snow Day

I'm going to start off with some "things to know."

  • The InstaGC global bonus is up to 4%, and my personal goal bonus is 1%, so I've got a total of a 5% discount on gift cards today. Make sure you take advantage of the awesome discount! 
  • Disney Movie Rewards is offering a 5 point bonus code every day until Christmas. Check out their Pinterest page daily to get the code. 
  • Make sure to spin the MyPoints Spin to Win wheel daily for a chance to win points or bonus offers.

Okay, now that I've gone over the important stuff, here's some more that I want to share with you all! 

I just ordered 2 insulated tote bags from with my reward points. I'm super excited because I've been saving my points forever! And, I was just thinking that I really needed more grocery bags, but didn't want to pay for them. 

Here's something super exciting...I finally found my Jingit card! It had been missing for months, but I finally found it in another purse. So since I have my card again, I'm back to using the app and earning every day. I love being able to use the card to get myself a little something every once in a while, and not having to spend any of my cash. 

In other news, it's been snowing since the wee hours of the morning here in NY. Later on tonight it's supposed to pick up the pace to a nice 1 - 3 inches per hour. This was a perfect day to get some things done around the house. Like the holiday baking I've been putting off, or the cleaning...or catching up on NCIS. Turns out there was a marathon today, so that took priority of course! Plus I got to spend some quality time with my dogs.  :)

Who needs socks?  :)

PinchMe, I'm in LOVE...with this new sample program!

I just got my first PinchMe box! 

Pinch Me is a new website that offers boxes of free samples, and a cool rewards program for sharing your thoughts. I got my box within 2 weeks of signing up and ordering it, and I just ordered my second box today. 

You have to be quick when they restock the samples. It's a brand new site and everyone is trying to get samples, and many are complaining already they they can't get samples. I totally understand that this is a brand new site, there are kinks to work out! I'm just grateful for a new sample program with promise. They have had some great brands available already, and I can't wait to see how this site does in the future!

Interested in joining PinchMe? Leave a comment on this post with your FB link, Twitter name, or email (depending on how you want me to invite you) and I'll invite you!
