Hi everyone! My name is Brandy and I LOVE Influenster. I have found some of my most favorite things (for myself and my hubby) from being an Influenster. For work, I am an RN-BSN that travels about two weeks a month. I love to try new things and can say I am a bit of a makeup and product hoarder. I love to read and hang out with my friends and family and also love spending time with my mini pig, Sebastian, and my two lovable labs, Dooney and VanGogh.
Dove Advanced Care has been my go to deodorant for years but I was sent a free sample of the new Apple & White Tea to test out in exchange for an honest review. While the quality of the product is there, I do have to say that I’m a little disappointed with how quickly the smell wore off. Especially after a really intense workout. I do felt like the quality of Dove was there-my underarms are still smooth and no breakouts the last week while using it (like I’ve had with other brands). The smell is great, but doesn’t last long like I’ve grown accustomed to with Dove. It would be excellent for people who are sensitive to smell but for me, I will stick to the Beauty Finish smell for everyday and Revive for my intense workouts.
Crabtree and Evelyn have some of the best products I have ever used. My hair feels healthier and has more body- also a lot more shine. The smell is great and long lasting! The only thing I dislike is that I have to order online since there are no stores around me. It limits me in the number of products that I will try since I'm not able to smell them before purchasing and they can be a bit pricey. I have not been disappointed and would highly recommend.
This is my favorite mix for a quick potato soup when I don't have the time to make it from scratch. I just make the mixture according to the instructions but then add a couple cans of diced potatoes and a package of turkey bacon. Cook according to the package, and after a few minutes you have a delicious meal without all the effort of making from scratch. I would highly recommend.
I love Panera and can say that overall, I have always had a great experience when dining there. I would suggest signing up for the rewards program- you are able to quickly earn rewards like several dollars of a take two, a free pastry item, and even a free bagel every day for a month. Since signing up, this is the second time that the offer has been valid on my card. This whole month, I have been able to get a free bagel using their mobile app- no purchase necessary. If you like green tea- their green tea is delicious. My favorite sandwich is the grilled chicken Caesar sandwich- it's not on the menu, but you can order it anyway.
This is one of my favorite brands of green tea. I generally use honey or stevia at home and it is often hard to find a tea that is sweet that isn't full of sugar. This one uses honey- which is much healthier than filling up with sugar. Tea is great tasting and doesn't have a strange aftertaste like some green teas.
Kiss has become my favorite go to eyelash brand. I was so nervous to try these my first time but decided that it couldn't be that hard to apply and this brand came with an application tool- so, I figured why not and have them a try. Since then, I have tried other brand and don't like them nearly as much as Kiss. These are cheap- it cost me $8 for a pack of 5 and they are reusable if you clean them up right after removing them. I wear them everyday, whether I wear makeup or not. It is the one thing I can't leave home without now.
This brand is one of the best pre-made guacamoles you can find. Always fresh and tastes delicious. I also love that there aren't any onions- as weird as it may seem, a lot of people who don't like onions have trouble stomaching them in guacamole too. This guac is perfect for when I want to make it but don't feel like I have a ton of time- I just throw in a couple items that I would when making fresh and mix it up and it's perfect.
