Hello there, I'm a creative soul with a love for books, cats, coffee, crafts and all things beauty and body positive. I love trying out new things and old things in new ways (and usually blogging about them). I'm excited and looking forward to sharing, reading and chatting with others in the Influenster community. 😊
Absolutely LOVE ipsy! I have been with them for a little over a year now and have no plans of leaving them any time soon. Only once have I ever gotten a monthly bag that I was disappointed with or wouldn't use any of the products - every other month has been 1-2 items I've loved to try at the very least. And the bags each month are always so adorable!! I honestly feel like ipsy has only gotten better and better - I'm excited to see what the rest of the year brings from them.
Love this dry shampoo! Does the job with a very light scent, almost no build up and does exactly what a dry shampoo should do! I've honestly used it on 3 and 4 day hair and had it looking fresh and styled without any issue. A more budget friendly option as well, certainly recommend and will repurchase in the future.

We're about as picky in the treats that we purchase for our dog as she is in the ones she'll actually eat. While she seems to love the flavor of these, they make her vomit and give her an upset stomach for hours (by the look on her face and the long naps after). We thought perhaps it was because she scarfs them down so fast, so we tried one last time yesterday, tearing them into smaller bits that forced her to chew them - same thing though. I've emailed the company, will never purchase them again and do not recommend.
Local grocery had this line on sale so I grabbed this and another to give a try on those "quick dinner" nights. The flavor is really good! And does make for a quick meal on the stove top or easy in the slow cooker. However for the usual price of them I could make my own with things we always keep on hand - sweeter variety of bbq sauce, thick chopped garlic and onion, done (and in organic).
In short; certainly tasty and worth it for something quick and easy but not very budget friendly unless you catch them on sale or with a coupon (especially if you have the above mentioned ingredients on hand already). Will buy again when on sale.
Just something I thought I'd never buy (despite my selfie taking), that a friend thought would make a fun holiday gag gift - and now I love it! Works perfectly, really fun for group selfies and as a photograoher who loves those odd shots - it's a lot of fun for interesting landscape, city and nature photos too. I was able to plug and play with my Samsung Galaxy S7, but there is an app needed for some phones to recognize the plugged in shutter button.
The only thing to watch for, through a bit of handling and being put in/taken out of my bag the rubber casing around the handle shifted - moving the button indicator away from the actual button. It was easy to twist and push back into place, but something to keep in mind.
This tiny Tsum Tsum Minnie is absolutely adorable!! She was given to me in a stocking type gift bag of goodies over Christmas and was just so cute that I needed Mickey too. The price is a bit high for a chapstick but I understand the Disney marketing involved. The flavor is Strawberry Lollipop and is really nice, sweet and not too strong and the chapstick is rather moisturizing. An adorable collectors piece I think, the pair is too cute sitting among my makeup!
This tiny Tsum Tsum Mickey is absolutely adorable!! I was given the Minnie in a stocking type gift bag of goodies over Christmas and she was just too cute that I needed Mickey too. The price is a bit high for a chapstick but I understand the Disney marketing involved. The flavor of this one though isn't very pleasant, it claims to be Marshmallow Pop but just tastes and smells extremely artificial - sweet, but just awfully fake flavoring. An adorable collectors pieces though, the pair is too cute sitting among my makeup - depends what you're looking for on the value of this one for you I think. For me, it was!
It's such a silly little thing, but all three of our cats go crazy with this toy. I found it for only a few dollars and it has taken an absolute beating! Tossed across rooms, down stairs, pounced, attacked and cuddled, the poor thing is still going strong after a couple years of use now. The name is a bit misleading though, it doesn't run at all. You pull the tail which pulls a string inside of the toy that makes the whole thing vibrate as it reals the string/tail back in. (But for the price range I didn't really expect much more.) Most certainly a worth while purchase, your cats will love it!!
So disappointing. I love eggnog, so much so that I limit myself and only purchase a carton the week/weekend of Christmas. Unfortunately for me this year this meant a limited selection and I decided to give this Very Vanilla Nog a try. It is rather boring, like a melted vanilla shake, absolutely not worth the calories and fat. Now I understand why there was so much of it at the grocery store while everything else was sold out - I should have tried the Almond milk eggnog instead. Never again.
Stubb's BBQ Sauce is our house favorite, especially the Sticky Sweet version (although the others are all rather tasty as well). It is deliciously sweet without being overly sweet. We grill with it, bake with it, crock pot with it and it's as tasty with potatoes and many grilled veggies as it is with meats. A constant in our house that we highly recommend. (When our grocery store has a sale, we stock up even more!)
