Coconut oil!

I have read numerous articles about coconut oil and how it does wonders.  I tried it out in my hair while focusing on the ends.  When I say my hair is great and then goes to crap it's  true!  It is either really voluminous and pretty or flat and stringy. I personally blame it on our water because we are basically the frack capital in PA. Gross. 😢

OZ Naturals

Today was the 1st day I tried it, but so far I like it! I spoke before about a product that was called FootJuice and loved it. These two product both have witch hazel in them. My Polish Grandma would always have me wipe my face with witch hazel or apple cider vinegar. I may be biased but anything with witch hazel intrigues me! I'll keep everyone posted on how well this works! Go to Amazon and check out the reviews for OZ Naturals Toner.  It is the 4th step in the process of products from them, but my only step because I only have the toner. It says 7 days to see a noticeable difference... Challenge accepted!

There are quite a few things girls love -
 Diamonds, perfume, jewelry, and shoes. 

Founded in the year 2008 in Athens, Ohio, JazzyWear is an online shoe boutique that features stylish flats, pumps and boots for women. All shoes are offered in audacious colors and styles! 

If any of you are living in the Cali area, please pay attention:  JazzyWear does SHOE PARTIES!  Yes, you heard me correctly- no more candle/food/31/etc parties.  This is amazing ... now if we only lived on the West Coast.  E-mail Jazzy at for more info on how to do this!

We picked this super cute pair of sandals to review.  They are called the  Mini Turquoise Hawaiian Sandal and were a hit.  For those of you who have been following the blog my wedding colors have changed just like the weather in this town - from one extreme to another. Finally it has been decided that it is going to be navy, shades of pinks and gold/silver- sometimes you have to Pinterest hours to figure it out.  Anyway, the blues fit perfectly with what  I wanted.

To begin with they were delivered fast!  I loved the little paper they were wrapped in when delivered - kind of like a surprise present inside that little box!

Another thing I loved is there are matching adult/children shoes!  I can just imagine the cute pictures that can be done with bridesmaids and flower girls during the reception.  Everyone kicks their heels off for flips (besides me because I am short) during the reception, so they should look cute while dancing the night away!  Plus, they are a steal - $12/$15. 

If you are looking for a unique pair of sandals or heels, check out her site.  But more importantly ... they make great presents!

Wedding Gowns = ?

A common question I have been asked is if I found a dress yet and it is always difficult when I answer! I found two dresses that I absolutely loved.   They are complete opposite of each other, one being a mermaid and the other being a ballgown.  What to do, what to do...  As with any decision I have to make I always number my choices and then say pick 1 or 2, flip a coin, or do a poll.  Yes, very scientific I know! In this case I asked my friends, some telling me which one they liked or either saying both gowns look great.  Geesh, could this have been any easier?  Nothing with me is...

I asked the simple question, posted some pictures, and decided to let complete strangers on a wedding board tell me the honest truth.  They have no idea who I am and I knew their opinions were based strictly on which one fit my body type more and which one I (vainly) looked better in.  I would have thought the ladies were going to say things like, "Ew, you look gross in this one; U-G-L-Y you ain't got no alibi; Get a haircut you hippie!"  The last line about a hippie was just something I made up, but I would have loved to have seen it.  (:  

Because I'm a teacher  my logical thinking order blossomed into a "teachable moment" because I knew I liked both dresses ... ask several places, add them up, do some math, present it as a lesson, give bonus points if someone figured out the ratios, and wa-lah decision is made.  At least for now.... 

Step 1: Add up all the opinions of complete strangers and my friends
Step 2: Write it on paper using a tally system
Step 3: Re-write it on a white board because it always looks better - in red
Step 4: Add all the tally marks up and check my work
Step 5: Do some math! Create ratios using total amount of opinions for each dress and total opinions all together. (:
Step 6: Percentages are just another step to reaffirm a decision. Check work from start to finish again.

 33% to 67%  Pretty sure there is a clear decision! 

Do you want to know which dress I picked? 
Well I think I'm going to keep it a secret, even to my bridesmaids!
  PS.  When Britt and my friends read this (Britt especially) they will text, reply to this post and then wonder which one for the next year!

Iron Fist shoes - WOW!

We all know I have been searching for some wedding shoes ... ok, you caught me!  I also am just looking to buy some new heels!  I find all types of amazing shoes online and just came across the website   Let me tell you they have my size, 5, in A LOT of shoes!  How lucky (unfortunate to the bank acct) can I be? 

Iron Fist XMarks Spot Plat - TurqIron Fist I See You Peep Toe Plat - Purple The shoes I picked today are from a company called Iron Fist. 

Wednesday, February 20, 2013


One of my big things to buy ever since I was small (haha) were shoes!  Trying to find a pair of shoes in my little size 5 feet is difficult.  Combine that with trying to find a pair that is unforgettable as a wedding shoe is tremendously difficult.    I think I found a few that are amazing....  to me anyway! 

The first is from a company online called Privileged.  I love how unique they are - they are the bottom right pair!  They have glitter, high heels, spikes, and are extremely neat looking! The only problem is I have never worn a heel quite like this one ....

The third are from Ebay. They are all glitter and crystal.  The only problem is they have a pointy toe tip...

Shiekh is another brand I recently discovered.  I can honestly say I never really know where I find new brands, but they are pretty cool.  They are the two pairs at the top of the page.

Which pair do you like?

    Dress Shopping

    We are making the trip to MB Bridal in Greensburg, PA this weekend to see a Trunk Show for Maggie Sottero and Sottero & Midgley.  Am I excited? Yes! I've been prepping by watching "Say Yes to The Dress" and know my entourage will not be as mean to me as they are on that show.  Gee! Do people not understand that feelings are real?  Ok, dumb question ...   (: 

    Some great examples from the designer:

    {2012 Holiday Gift Guide} Mia Mariu Giveaway!

    Whenever I buy myself something it is either a book or makeup. I only buy myself clothes when I absolutely need something new to wear.  But I can't pass any makeup section without stopping to see what is new.  If a friend tells me about a new mascara, I go buy it.  No questions asked.  I just started hearing great things about Mia Mariu so I knew I had to try it!  When I was online trying to decide what to choose, I used their great Shade Finder tool.  I have olive skin so sometimes ordering online is a little tricky.  But the Shade Finder really helped me select the right shades.  I found that their website was easy to navigate and it was simple to make an order.  

    After careful selection, I ended up getting the:
    ~PERFECTING FINISH Mineral Cream Concealer in Anís
    ~Mineral Powder Bronzer in South Beach
    ~Luminous Lip Gloss in Romance
    ~Volumizing and Lengthening Mascara in Black 

    The first product I tried was the mineral cream concealer.  I have extremely dark circles under my eyes(thanks genetics!).  I use a super thick concealer to get rid of them but do not like to use it on my face.  Mia Mariu's concealer was great for all my other skin imperfections.  It was the perfect shade so I could even use it without any foundation or powder.  

    The bronzer was my favorite! I chose the pinkish shade of South Beach. It was a great way to have the bronzing effect with a slight blush color also. The product really went on smoothly and blended really easily into my foundation.  I have been using this bronzer every day now for a few weeks!  

    The lip gloss is one of the best lip glosses I have tried in a while.  I am a huge lip gloss girl and this did not disappoint.  The color I chose, Romance, was perfect for every day wear.   It is a light pink with lots of shine.  Their lip glosses all contain vitamins to keep your lips feeling great.  This is not a sticky gloss!  I hate that thick feeling that some glosses have but this goes on smooth.  I plan on buying another color really soon!

    The mascara was the only product I wasn't sure I was going to like.  I am really picky about my mascara because I hate that clumpy eye look.  While the brush looks standard, it really was wonderful.  The mascara seemed to lengthen my eye lashes without getting them all stuck together.  My eyes looked naturally plumped without it seeming that I was wearing a ton of eye makeup.  

    Overall, I enjoyed all my beauty products from Mia Mariu!  Any of their products would be a great gift(they have makeup sets) or stocking stuffers.  I know I would be thrilled to wake up to some makeup brushes!*

    Mia Mariu is generously offering every product(AR$57) that I tried to one of our lucky readers.  If you win, you have 48 hours to respond to the email I have sent you.  You are given the choice of shades or colors on all the products.

    I was not financially compensated for this post. I received a sample for review purposes. The opinions are completely my own based on my experience.

    My October Starbox!

    Last week, I received my one of my favorite things, my October Starbox!  My monthly box is always exciting to get because I know that I will love everything inside.  Starbox is a monthly beauty box that includes three to four full-sized beauty products!  By full-sized I mean that it is the same size that they sell on their website.  No mini bottles or tiny sample packs come in this box! This month's box included Gold Dust Eyeliner Pencil, Posh/Peddle Eye Shadow Pigment, Masquerade Lipstick, Masquerade Eye Stickers and mystic quartz crystals.
    Everything close up!
    When I opened my box, I grabbed the eye shadow pigment first thing.  That exact color has been my favorite color since I was a little girl.  I knew I was going to love the eye shadow without even having to try it once.  At first, I was a little confused about the pigment part, what made it different than regular eye shadow.  I went onto the Starlooks website to read about it.  I found out that these can be mixed with other eye shadow, loose powder, foundation and lipstick.  You can ass as much or little color as you want to this is a great way to create the perfect shade for you.  I used the pigment over top another purple eye shadow to add a great simmer to my eyes.  I cannot express how much I love this!

    I wasn't sure that I would have much use for a gold eyeliner.  However, when paired with the eye shadow pigment, it looks fantastic.  I have been using it in the corners on my eye to make my eyes looks sparkly.  

    The lipstick was the most surprising product is this box.  I never wear lipstick.  It always comes off too easily or refuses to come off.  I hate when I put on a lipstick to try the color, not like it, and it is impossible to get off.  The lipstick in my Starbox was the perfect combination of long lasting and easy to get off.

    I think that this box(and every other month I have tried them) are well worth their $15 price tag.  They always include over $35 worth of products and a few freebies, like this month's eye stickers.  I am always impressed with my boxes and am sure I will continue being so!

    Learn more on their Facebook and Twitter pages!

    I received the above products through Sublime Media Connection in exchange for an honest review. In no way was I asked to give a positive review.

    {2012 Holiday Gift Guide} Beauty Box 5

    I am one of those people that start my Christmas shopping as soon as October starts. I really like to think about what my family would like and start looking for deals.  My husband is the same way so he has already been asking me what I would like this year.  I told him a few things that I wanted and one of them was a beauty subscription box.  So when I was able to try the Beauty Box Five, I was excited to see if this could be a possible match for me.

    Beauty Box Five is a monthly beauty box subscription service.  Every month you will receive four or five product samples.  The samples are all beauty related so you can expect makeup, skin care items, hair and nail products, etc.  They have three different kinds of subscriptions(monthly, quarterly, and yearly) and you can even give one to someone as as gift.  One month is only $12!

    First of all, the box itself is really cute!  There is something about that Tiffany blue color that every woman loves.  I opened my box and expected to find small samples of all the products.  But actually, three out of my four products were full sized! 
    My box included:
    ~Smith's Rosebud Salve-Full Sized
    ~It's a 10 Miracle Styling Serum-Two sample packets
    ~Supergoop! SPF 30+ UV Lotion for Body & Face-Sample tube
    ~pur-delicate Gentle Soy Milk Cleanser and Makeup Remover-Full Sized 
    ~Lavera Eyeliner-Full Sized

    The first product I tried was the Supergoop! SPF 30+ UV Lotion for Body & Face.  I was outside with my daughter when I realized that she didn't have any sunblock on.  I used this on her and was really satisfied.  She didn't get any sort of sun on her skin and it didn't leave her with that weird sticky feeling that most sunblocks have.  It is also very water resistant which is great for my daughter.  She is always sweating so it is important that it will keep her safe from the sun.  

    Next up, I tried Smith's Rosebud Salve. At first I wasn't sure how I could use this.  But after reading the back, I found that you can use this for just about any skin issue.  My elbows and knees are really dry so I put a little on it.  It was really moisturizing and it smells fantastic!  I have been using this on my daughter's occasional diaper rashes.  It is so gentle yet it is still really effective.

    It's a 10 Miracle Styling Serum was one of my favorites.  I usually don't like those little packets of hair product samples.  However,  when I tried this I loved it.  It left my hair super shiny and smooth. My hair was frizz free and felt great.  I only used a tiny amount and it really went a long way.  This is one product that I am buying for sure!

    Have you ever wondered what it would feel like to wash your face with milk?  Pur-delicate Gentle Soy Milk Cleanser and Makeup Remover gives you that feeling.  The product is creamy, milky goodness.  My face felt amazingly soft after I used it just once.  The soap doesn't lather so it feels like more of a lotion.  It rises off easily and left my skin feeling great for an entire day!  Another new must-have! 

    Lavera Eyeliner was also great!  I have a problem sometimes with eyeliners making my eyes itch and water.  I need an eyeliner that is really sensitive.  This eyeliner goes on really smooth without any clumping.  Normally, I only use black eyeliner but I really liked this color as well.  It is a great fall color!

    Overall, I really liked my box!  It was a great value at only $12.  I estimated the products in the box to be about $25 worth of products.  I liked all of the products even though I wouldn't normally buy some of them.  This is a great way to discover new products!

    Naturals VoxBox from Influenster!

    I was selected to receive my first VoxBox from Influenster!  having never received one before, I was really excited to discover what was in my box.  They pick who received what products based on surveys that you can take on their site.  Below are quick recaps of all the products I tried:

    The Original™ Dish Drying Mat
    The Dish Drying Mat can hold four times its weight in liquid!  No more drying your dishes before putting them in the drying rack to dry.  It is also machine washable so you don't have to worry about it getting dirty.  Just once a week, toss it in the washer.  That is much easier than having to wash a bunch of towels every other day.  We have limited counter space at our house.  I like that after I use the Dish Drying Mat I can fold it up and store it in a drawer!  I also like that this has cushioning so it will protect our glass bowls and wine glasses.  Read more about it here.

    LypSyl Intense Protection LypMoisturizer
     The first time I tried it, I was hooked!  It reminds me off another lip balm company but I actually like this better.  I really like that the tube has a slide to adjust the level of the stick.  It seemed to last a lot longer than other similar sticks.  I have been using this for about two weeks now and my lips feel fantastic!  The tube is about $2.50 and will last quite awhile.  I would recommend this to anyone!  Read more here.

    SheaMoisture Baby Bar Soap
    Before using it on our daughter, I read all the ingredients.  The soap don't contain parabens, sulfates, phthalates, mineral oil, petrolatum, DEA, PABA, synthetic fragrance or artificial colors.  Another huge selling point for me in that they don't test on our animal pals.  I expected the soap to be white but it is a dark brownish color.  After using it, I was sold!  It left my daughter's skin feeling soft and creamy.  I also noticed that her skin stayed moisturized for long after bath time.  The scent is so mild that it is not even noticeable!  Highly recommended!  Read how my daughter's skin felt after here.

    Being a stay at home mama, I need all the energy I can get!  I poured myself a glass of water and poured the packet of EBOOST into it.  It kinda has the baking soda and vinegar effect.  It foamed up all the way to the top of the glass.  I tried to take a drink but there was too much foam.  I poured the drink into a bigger glass and added some more water.  They packet doesn't say how much water to add so I figured that I must have not used enough.  The drink tastes like an orange fruit drink.  I did feel better after using it though!  This may not be a drink I would drink every day, but it's great for those days where you need a boost!  Read more here.

    I also tried:
    ~NECTRESSE™ Natural No Calorie Sweetener:".. is what you’ve been searching for—100% natural, zero calories per serving and the rich, sweet taste of sugar!"
    ~GeoDeo:"Your other deodorant already hates us. Our overachieving ways make all other natural deodorants look lazy. GEODEO® dominates odor, tackles toxins and leaves your armpits showered in eco-goodness. After one too many natural deodorant fails, it's easy to be cynical. We’ve been there. Which is why we are here. Creating smelljoy."
    ~CleanWell Natural Hand Sanitizer Wipes: "CleanWell believes in eliminating germs safely. That's why they developed their patented formulation of natural thyme oil that kills germs yet contains no harsh chemicals. CleanWell truly is a better way to clean." -All product info from Influenster.

    Overall, LOVED my Naturals VoxBox!  I was introduced to a few products that I really liked and will continue to use.  I sincerely hope that I am selected for another VoxBox in the near future!

    TBox To-Go!

    The Tbox to-go is a sleek tampon holder for the purse, pocket, or backpack. The easy-snap lid keeps tampons secure and secret pill box on the bottom makes the Tbox to-go a lifesaver. The best part? The Tbox to-go looks like make-up. Perfect for a quick pass to a friend in need, or to slip into your pocket.

    The Tbox is a great product!   When I first saw it I was surprised that it only costs $14.99.  It has an awesome secret box that you can stick your Ibuprofen or Migraine pills in! Love it!  Another great thing is it is mirrored.  It easily fits into your clutch so you can check your makeup and add more lipstick during  weddings and receptions.  This is a definite buy for someones gift or in a gift for your bridesmaids.  Fill a little clutch up must haves for the wedding day - Tic Tacs, Lip gloss, perfume, band aids, and finally a Tbox!  

     I received one or more of the products mentioned above for free using Regardless, I only recommend products or services I use personally and believe will be good for my readers.

    A Perfectly Posh Giveaway!

    I recently had the chance to try some products from a new company called Perfectly Posh.  I had no idea what to expect but our pal Ashley ensured me that I would love everything.  I only had to browse her website for a minute before I knew she was right!

    About Perfectly Posh from Ashley herself:
    "Perfectly Posh is a pampering products company that brings you spa quality lotions, face masks, scrubs, natural beauty products, and more! All free of SLS (sulfate), paraben, and paraffin. It’s a fairly young company that was founded October 1st 2011 and has been personally one of the best experiences I’ve ever encountered with a direct sales company. The products I’ve used so far have cleared up my face of blemishes and blotches that I’ve previously fought with for years and can finally throw away medications I had previously used! My husband’s nasty toes are now actually soft again…well we need to consider they haven’t been soft since he was a little kid. "
    I was able to try a bunch of Perfectly Posh products and really liked them all!  I love that all their products are free of sulfates, paraben and paraffins.  Also they don't test on animals!  I am a huge animal lover and you would be surprised to know all the companies that do test on  our poor animal friends.  All of the products that I tried were very gentle to the skin.  I also really like that on the website you can read all of the ingredients in every product.  Ashley asked me a few questions to help me choose which products would work best for me.  Everything she told me I would like, I loved! 

     The first thing that I tried was the Easy Essentials {portabalm} in Perk!  This is an natural peppermint essential oil balm designed to go where you go.  I had been very stressed lately(our car was stolen).  I have been rubbing some on my temples when I feel a headache coming on.  It has an uplifting peppermint scent that really helps you well..perk up!  It can also be rubbed into muscles to relieve stress.  This was on of my favorites!
    I next tried the Moisture Shot Lip Glass in Ohh La..Kahula.  First off, this is only $4 and it really worth it!  I have been using it all week and my lips feel fantastic!  It is packed with shea butter and almond oil so it really does pack a moisturizing punch.  My only problem was that it smells so good that I am constantly craving white russians!
     Next on the list to try was the Big Fat Yummy Hand Creme in Lei Away.  I usually think that most hand creams are the same.  They are too greasy, don't moisturize enough or aren't long lasting.  BFY Hand Creme is not like the rest!   It left my hands really soft and lasted for hours.  I always get really dry skin in the Winter and this year I know I will be using this hand creme.  As a side note, the bottle is TSA friendly.  I just went to Las Vegas for my brother's wedding and didn't have a single bottle that I could bring on the plane with me.

    I knew that I really wanted to try one of their Bombinators.  I chose the Ball 'O Butter mostly because I was curious about the way it would leave my skin.  The only "me time" I get is my nightly bath.  I actually broke my Bombinator into pieces so I could enjoy it multiple times.  As odd as it sounds, it left my skin feeling like I took a bath with butter minus the greasiness.  My skin was super soft and really moisturized.  I highly recommend it!
    A few times a week, my husband and I stay up after our daughter goes to sleep to spend some time together.  This usually includes me asking(begging) for a back rub.  After using lotion for a long time I finally bought some massage oil.  It was such a disappointment that I threw the bottle away after one time.  Then I was able to try Perfectly Posh's Funky Fingers Massage Balm in Lively Lemongrass.  Holy cow, it's perfection.  It somehow manages to be long lasting but not at all greasy.  The container is $16 and it will last a long time!  I am absolutely reordering this when we finish this one!  
     The last product I had the privilege of trying was The Stripper Detox Body Mud.  I was really looking forward to trying this one because I have been searching forever for a mud mask.  All you have to do it put it on and wait for it to dry.  You can use it all over your body or just your face.  I used it on the face the first time and was really pleased.  My face felt completely bare.  It was great!  I would really recommend this to anyone who lives where there is a lot of pollution!

    Now on to the giveaway!  Ashley is generously offering to give one of our readers their very own Perfectly Posh prize pack!  One reader will receive:

    ~Spooky Collection (contains Bombinator - Witch Be Gone Bath Brew, Lip Butter - Punkin' Puckerin' Lip Butter Cauldron, and Sinful Skin - Spell Bound Purpley Potion) 
    ~The Stripper

    Headline Shirts, T-Shirts, Funny, Hilarious, Naughty, Adult Tees
    Headline Shirts is your source for incredibly comfy and intelligently funny t-shirts and apparel for adults and kids. Their Vintageblend™ tees are handsewn in the U.S.A. using a super soft cotton/poly blend. They use eco-friendly inks and materials right down to the bag they send it in. Yes my friends, my obsession of cats even leads into other areas of my life such as my choice of attire. I couldn't resist this creative tee with the kitty cop asking, "Who's Laughing Meow?" To be honest, I expected this average cotton T-Shirt to arrive that has been screen printed and would look like any other t-shirt in my closet. I was quite wrong. It is this gorgeous vintage blend which gives it a nice grain of colors and is one of the softest t-shirts I've ever owned. Although I love wearing it during the day, I also enjoy sleeping in it because it is so cozy and comfy!

    My September Starbox!

    So last month I received my first Starlook's Starbox.  You can read about how much I loved the last one here.  I was so excited to get this months box!  I was really impressed with last month's box so I knew this month's was going to be great.  Here is a little refresher on the Starbox:
    "Starbox is a new monthly subscription box from Starlooks that includes 3-4 FULL SIZED beauty products! For only $15 a month you will receive over $35 worth of full sized beauty products. If you like one of the products you got, you can go on their website and purchase it. Also, you can save by referring your friends to Starbox! For every person you refer, you will receive 100 Starbox Points. 100 points equals $10 so that savings could really add up!"
    This month's box contained:

    • Signature Eye Shadow Palette with five full sized eye shadows
    • Clear Eye Shadow Primer
    • Opal and Champagne colored Swarovski eye crystals
    • Mystic Quartz Crystal

    The eye shadows are fantastic!  They are light enough to give just a hint of color with a ton of shimmer.  I have been using them over my regular shadow to give it an added shine.  My daughter even noticed that my eyes were shiny purple. 
    All five shades
     Now I have never used a eye primer before so I have no idea what to expect.  The primer goes on completely clear.  You can feel it on your eyelid but it's not greasy or bad feeling in any way. I noticed that it really held my eye shadow on all day.  It also helped prevent any smudging.  

    I did not get to try the crystals because I didn't have a glue to use.  However, I plan on getting some before Halloween so I can try them out then. This would be nice for any special occasion when you want to try something new and fun with your eyes.

     I was just as impressed with this box as I was with last month's.  I can't wait for my October box now!  Once again, highly recommended!

    I received the above products through Sublime Media Connection in exchange for an honest review. In no way was I asked to give a positive review.
