I never thought I would love a show based on fantasy, but I once I started I couldn't stop. The stories are engaging, the characters are full of depth, the women are smart and strong. The violence is hard to watch at times, but it is part of this world. Overall, it's amazing. The worst part is waiting for the next season and avoiding spoilers.
Ipsy gives a lot of bang for your buck. It's one of the cheaper subscription boxes out there. It's only $10/month. It's a lot of fun, but gets old after 3-4 months. I felt like the variety wasn't enough to keep me and they never really tailored it to me. I kept getting eyeliner and nail polish! I don't know what to do will all the bags. On the plus side, it introduced me to new brands I was unfamiliar with and am now a fan of (NYX, it). It's worth a try, but not a long lasting relationship.
This serum is amazing. I received two 10-day samples from the Clinique counter, plus another sample from Sephora! It literally sinks right into your skin and makes it feel like velvet. Fine lines have disappeared, spots are fading, and my skin appears smoothr. It is expensive but seems worth every cent. I plan to purchase when my samples have run out.
I picked up some of these Sally Hansen Salon Effects nail strips when I saw them for $3.00 at the 5 below. I figured I didn't have much to lose. I got a two-tone pink giraffe print, an ombre look, and a snake-print perfect for Halloween. I really like the idea of having simple fingers and wilder toes so I tried the giraffe strips out on my toes. I don't know if it was recommended for toes, but I gave it a shot. I even put the strips over some nail polish-again, against instructions. I was able to use half the strips because one nail strip covered two of my toes. I love that it is not drippy or messy and I don't have to use those nail separators. The strips have lasted over a week without chipping. I have gotten numerous compliments on my toes, including a stranger in Macy's! I love that this self-pedi cost $3.00. I know it would have been 10x that in the nail salon to achieve the same look. Overall, the strips performed as claimed, if not better. There was no dry time and the polish is lasting. I am achieving a salon quality look at home. Can't wait to try another one on my fingernails!!
I am a longtime Tastykake fan. Hey, I lived in Philly for over 10 years. I have sampled just about every kake, pie, and donut possible. In my spring Vox Box, I was delighted to receive a peanut butter Kandy Bar Kake inside. I wasted no time giving it a try. It was a soft devil's food cake with Reese's peanut butter creme in the middle enrobed in chocolate and PB drizzle. I liked the balance of hard/soft and salty/sweet. My only regret was agreeing to share it with my husband. We have since replaced the free sample with a full box that we picked up at our local Wawa convenience store. We have yet to try the other flavors since we are such PB fans, but we would like to get to the S'mores flavor next.
I have used this laundry detergent in the past. I discovered it when the former owners of our house left it in the laundry room. It worked great in the HE machine and seemed to rinse clean from our clothes. The bottle was partially full, but lasted for a long time before it needed replacing. I used a company called Vitacost.com to replace it. They have a lot of eco-friendly products and you can usually score a good deal or free shipping. Bottom line: ECOS cleans your clothes without any nasty pollution. It's win-win.
I am from the Shore and love how my hair looks and feels after a day at the beach or on the boardwalk. When I read about this product, I couldn't wait to get my hands on it. I headed down to Sephora and my mouth dropped at the $25 price tag for the "big" bottle. Luckily, I found the smaller version in the trial section near checkout. It is still quite pricey, but I felt better about spending $15 on a new product. (Although, Sephora is usually good at taking back what you don't like) I have long, fine hair that goes past my shoulders. I sprayed it on my damp hair; made two braids and blew dry the braids to get some wavier texture. At the end of the day, my hair had more volume and more texture than it has had in a long time. I felt beachy all day, though the closest beach was an hour away. When I run out, I am investing in the larger size.
I bought this product after reading a write up about it in one of my magazines. It was recommended in the beauty section. I burn easily and even though I wear lots of sunscreen I can easily go from just right to overcooked in a snap. The last time, I went home and used this serum. I guess it is called a serum because it is not as thick as a lotion, but thicker then a gel or liquid. It goes on easily. I felt hydrated and it cooled my red skin. The shimmer is very subtle, it is not easily apparen't to the naked eye. I liked the scent too; smelled sort of like cool chopped cucumbers. One week after using this a couple of times, no itchiness and no peeling which is usually my after-sun routine. My skin feels soft and hydrated! This is now a permanent part of my beach bag! I picked it up at my local Target for about $10; a bit pricey for the size of the container, but worth it!
I tried Love with Food when I could try it for free. I believe I just payed $2.00 for the shipping costs. I figured even if I hated it, I have bought energy bars that cost more than that! I received my box in May, which was the Mother's Day Breakfast in Bed box. I liked that the box centered around a theme. The packaging was adorable. It came in a red box with a card tucked inside which explained the food items. I received a gluten-free vegan cookie by Great Full, Cajun seasoning packets, Snapz brand freeze-dried tomatoes, a couple of hard candies, a baby jar of Bonne Maman strawberry preserves, a biscotti, a big bag of Mrs.Mays pumpkin crunch, and hand-drip coffee. It was a big array. Some were mini-samples and others a bigger offering. It was a really good value for $2.00. I got to try some things I really liked and sought out again on a trip to Whole Foods (the cookie, the biscotti, and the preserves). I was reluctant to commit to the full price $12.00. I miss the monthly surprises. Bonus: A portion of the money from each box purchased buys a meal for a hungry child. What other subscription boxes offer that?
I got this for my husband as gift for our anniversary as his old GPS (not Garmin) died after jut a few years. I am glad I have another GPS to compare it to. This is so much more accurate and user friendly. The updates are great and we even downloaded some "fun voices" to guide us on our trip. It's a little pricey, but a small price to pay for piece of mind when driving in the middle of nowhere. The screen is big and colorful and keeps you on track. One drawback-the touchscreen could be be improved a bit.I might just be used to a touch screen on a phone, but it isn't quite there yet; sometimes I have type the address of the town a few times.
