Charm Vox Box from Influenster

I am so devoted to Influenster for so many reasons.
Mainly because it's the first company that believed in me. I love reviewing the products they send me every month from L'Oreal Paris. But, I also love surprises and I was so excited to receive this Spring inspired goodie box.
I was one of several influensters who received the Charm Vox Box. This box is for mom's only, as it is filled with surprises for my little ones as well.
Included in the Charm Vox Box is:

Clean it up Shampoo by Eva NYCTherapy Session Hair Mask by Eva NYCPeeps Delights(coconut&dark chocolate)McCormick Organic Taco SeasoningMott's Applesauce1 step Wonder Gel nail polish by Wet n Wild in the color Peri-wink-le of an eye2 samples of Vera Wang Embrace perfumes, Periwinkle & Iris and Green Tea & Pear Blossom I honestly had to giggle upon going through these products because wow, what a random assortment?
I had to ask myself, how am I going to review taco Seasoning and nail polish? After all,…

L'Oreal Paris Pure-Clay Mask

When it comes to beauty, skin care is my number one priority.
My philosophy is, instead of covering skin imperfections with makeup, why not treat them?
Moisturizers, toners, serums, peels, masks, elixir's, creams, oils and anti-aging everything.
Every brand from La Mer, Chanel, Josie Maran, Sunday Riley, Clinique, Lancome, Glam Glow and everything in between.
So I was very curious when I received a box from L'Oreal with their new pure clay masks.
At first glance, the packaging is very chic and simple. The directions were on the side of the box so anyone can use them.
All three are made for any skin type, from oily, dry, sensitive to combination. Of course you would choose the product meant for your problem areas.
Another thing I liked about these masks based upon first reaction is the smell. They smelled like a per-fumy/fragrance instead of earthy like I expected.

I was very intrigued by the green mask, the Purify and Mattify. It promised skin to be cleaner, less oily/shiny,…

My first Influenster box

You know those ads you see on Instagram that say "totally free stuff by mail!",
Yeah, I ignore those too. But a beauty guru friend was raving about free makeup she recieved through mail, totally free through Influenster. So of course I had to check it out and the company is very legit and have several opportunities to earn free stuff monthly.
And yeah, their is a catch- you have to promote the products sent to you, but isn't that what we do anyways?
So after I downloaded the app, I filled out all of my info, connected my social media accounts and in about a week I received my first box.
To my surprise the products were full sized and from a company I actually love, L'Oreal Paris.
They sent the Color Vibrancy Intensive system to use for color treated hair. So of course I used all products right away and I was very satisfied with the results. Not only did it make my hair much more visably shinier and softer, it brought back life to my color treated hair. This is the o…

Favorite books of 2016

My idea of a perfect Saturday would be spent at home wrapped up in a good book.
My love of books is nothing new, growing up as an only child I had to entertain myself and since I came from a family of readers there's no surprise how easy my love of books began.  Books allows the reader to travel to places you have never been to. You can vicariously experience situations that you may either only dream of (or loathe). But however which way, Iyou would still gain invaluable insights. Reading also enhances your brain, is a great counseling aid and tool for personal growth, not to mention a wonderful boredom buster.  Ok, enough with my personal reasons for reading. I read so many books last year from the Kindle store and on hard copy that I compiled a list of my favorite books, you know the ones that's impossible to put down.
1. The Butterfly Garden by Dot Hutchinson Once I started this book, I could not put it down until I finished. It's one of those haunting stories where the chara…

3 years later

Wow. I look at this old blog from time to time and I can't believe how long it's been since I've posted.
So much can change in so little time. So I've decided to revive this blog that I spent so much time on way back.
Of course it will still be beauty and style based but since I've grown and my audience has, I'm going to be posting different articles too.
Things like, books I'm reading, TV shows, life lessons, being a mommy, and things that spark my interests.
Thank you to all of my readers!!!!
Love,
Summer
