Review: Joy & Karma Vitamin C Serum

Header---Joy-and-Karma

When I was first contacted to do a review of Joy & Karma’s Vitamin C Serum, I had to do a little research. I had never even heard of a Vitamin C serum before – was it a product for my face? my hair? an after dinner snack? After doing a little reading (er, Googling),…


Splurge Alert: Dirty Pretty Things Jewelry

Dirty Pretty Jewelry

I recently met up with my friend Jillian for lunch, and after noticing her gorgeous earrings – a pair of yellow gold angel wings, I couldn’t help myself to ask her where she had gotten them. They really caught my eye – and looked quite expensive from first sight. I remember her telling me the name…

3 Day Refresh – Honest Review and Results

3DR_hero_products

  When I first heard about the 3-Day Refresh system from Beachbody, I was admittedly a little skeptical of how much could actually be accomplished with a 3-day cleanse. However, when I started hearing about and seeing results from my other teammates, I knew this was something I had to look in to. I recently…

For those who may have missed my previous posts, you can read about the program in its entirety…


Lifeway Low Fat Kefir Review

Having been a member of Influenster for almost three years now, I have had the awesome opportunity to receive select products for testing and reviewing.

Dickinson’s® Original Witch Hazel Towelettes

Not all of the items included in the Sugar ‘n Spice VoxBox from Influenster were a “hit” in my book (see my previous post on Colgate®), but one product I was extremely pleased to be introduced to were Dickinson’s® Original Witch Hazel Oil Controlling Towelettes. They are individually wrapped wipes designed to cleanse your face,…

Colgate® Optic White® Regimen – Artificially Sweetened?!

I received this Colgate® regimen for toothpaste, mouthwash and a toothbrush from Influenster in my Sugar n Spice VoxBox that I blogged about previously. I was very excited to try these products, as I’d seen them in various stores promising an improvement in teeth whitening in only a week. In fact, I was running low on…

Simple Skincare Radiance Cleansing Wipes

I’ve been a big fan of Simple Skincare products since first receiving a set of cleansing wipes and facial moisturizer about a year ago. I was impressed with both products right off the bat, and they have stayed in my bathroom arsenal ever since. On the rare occasions I wasn’t able to find the Simple brand at…


Katy’s Kettle Corn – Savory. Sweet. Sinless!

Didja know that Katy Perry has her own flavor of PopChips? Apparently, she is not only an investor and creative partner in the exploding company, she has also inspired her own flavor. I was so lucky to have received a free coupon for Katy’s new flavor of PopChips, Katy’s Kettle Corn in the mail last…


Chobani Bite – I’ve Been Bitten!

Image Credit: Chobani Facebook Page If there is one thing I am a sucker for, and can truly not give up no matter how hard I try, is dessert. I don’t eat sweets with every meal, but dinner just doesn’t feel the same unless I can have something sweet and savory afterwards. This has become…


Goody Simple Styles Spin Pins

I love the classy and effortless look of an up-do, but I hate the wear and tear it can put on my head throughout a long day at the office. When I twirl my hair up using standard bobby pins or a hair claw, by the end of the day I have a massive headache…


The Perfect Budget Eyeliner

Anyone that knows me knows that I am a ridiculous eyeliner junkie. I’ve been baring black, blue, purple, brown and metallic/glitter eyeliners for as long as I can remember. In fact, there are days where I remember to apply eyeliner, and forget everything else. It’s like the one thing on my face I can’t get…


Palmolive Fresh Infusions Dish Soap

I’ve been a part of the Influenster community for about a year or so now. I have to say, I’ve rarely been disappointed with what they’ve sent me through their VoxBox programs – usually I end up finding a new favorite product, and in this case, it was no different. When I first received the…
