Hey, I am Jessica. I am an amateur writer who works with books for a living. I am in graduate school, savoring the college life. I love creating entertaining and informative posts for my blog, trying new products and recipes, and shopping for unique and interesting finds. I am obsessed with taking pictures of the food that I eat and of all my shopping hauls. I am always on the hunt for great deals. Overall, I enjoy sharing my knowledge and experiences with my friends, family, and blog readers. Follow me for glimpses of everything I do, eat, and love!
Nothing is better than traditional Chex Mix. I have tried many of the other flavors and the traditional is the best. It is so versatile. The price is great and the traditional mix is easy to find in stores and online. One of my food staples for parties!
The quality and creativity of Rae Dunn products is phenomenal. I have so much trouble finding Rae Dunn in stores, but when I get lucky, the value of these items is unsurpassable. Rae Dunn clay is always priced affordably in retail stores, but resellers usually hike up the prices. Overall, I never pass up a Rae Dunn item when I find one. I highly recommend her products to anyone who likes shabby chic, farm house, whimsy decor.
I recently got a sample of these for free in a Voxbox. I have used these nails way before I tried the sample though. imPRESS nails are my absolute go-to for special events when I want my nails to look extra fancy. I love the variety of designs imPRESS offers, and the price can't be beat. The nails are also short enough that contact wearers do not have to worry about anything. As for staying power however, these nails seem to be hit or miss. I have had some packs of nails that will last almost a week as advertised, and then I have had others only stay on for a few hours. I am not sure what the difference is. I always follow the instructions. I do now avoid washing dishes or using lotion when wearing these nails, but it doesn't seem to make a difference.
I was a little thrown off by this product at first, a lip and eye cream? I am not use to multipurpose products, but this cream seems like it would work great in multiple areas. As it's name suggests, it did seem to smooth, or at least sooth and moisturize my skin where applied. I received a small sample of this product for free for testing purposes, but was pleased with the results I saw. It is hard to say what my results would have been if I continued to use the product, but I can't complain about the tiny sample I tried. My favorite part about this product is that it is not too greasy. It did not make me breakout, but still did its job in moisturizing!
Best affordable BB cream I have used in a long time. I usually buy this product online for less than $10. The color perfectly matches my skin and the coverage is great. It makes my face look evenly toned and keeps my skin moisturized. I wear this every single day. The smell isn't the best but I am use to it now, very citrus smelling. Also make sure to shake the product well before using. Because this BB cream is all natural (which I love) the ingredients do separate over time. I hope this is never discontinued.
As soon as I put this liquid lipstick on, it was obvious how pigmented the color was. I tried two different colors and each were equally bold and pigmented. The two colors I tried were Pioneer and Lover. Both seemed true to their color. Pioneer is a dark red, and Lover is a mauve pink. I loved the applicator that comes with this lipstick, it made putting on the liquid product more easy, and while it did apply evening, liquid lipstick is always a challenge so be careful! Once this product is on, it is on forever. They mean it when they say it lasts 16hrs. I put a swatch on my arm and the faded marks were still there two days later, after a ton of scrubbing! On my lips, the color did wear off my inner lips (the wettest part of the lip), but held up all day on the outer portion of my lips. Since the color is so bold, this looked a little funny by the end of the day. But if you reapply, this won't be an issue. Once you apply this product, you must wait three minutes for it to completely dry. While it takes a while, it is worth it. It does not rub off after it is completely dry. It is very easy to get this product on your teeth if you do not wait until it is dry. It is a true matte lipstick once it is dry. There is no shine, but it does feel a bit sticky. Overall, I really like this lipstick because of the bold, even, pigmented, color. It is the perfect "night out" lipstick. I received this product for free for testing purposes.
These are the only razors I buy. They are cheap and work well. They last a long time before the razor goes dull. One pack lasts a really long time. They are easy to find and a great prize. Will never use any other razors!
I received this mascara complimentary for testing purposes. I loved the brush and this mascara in general. The formula was not clumpy and the brush along with the mascara's formula seemed to elongate my lashes. The brush also easily separated each lash and gave such a natural looking effect. However, this mascara was suppose to be blue. It looks very blue in the tube and on the brush, but when I put it on my very black lashes, I could not tell that it was blue.
So this foundation is terrible. And I do not give bad reviews lightly. At first I was impressed by how light weight it was and how much coverage it offered. But it is so cakey! My skin looked so dry and flakey I had to stop using this foundation after only three uses. I would stay away from this product at all costs, unless you have extremely oily skin. The matte formula is way off mark here. On the positive side, if you can deal with the weird cakey flakey effect, this foundation is really inexpensive.
I received samples of this item for free for testing purposes. I already use TRESemme shampoo and conditioner, so I was excited to try a new product from the company. I didn't think the Beauty-FULL products were any different than their other shampoos and conditioners, but I enjoyed using it just like all their other products. I did think my hair seemed less weighed down by using the conditioner first and then washing it out with the shampoo, but I assume that could be achieved by using any of their products "backwards".
