 I was recently chosen for an  Influenster VoxBox. So here is what I received and what I think of it. Its about a couple weeks late, but I was so sick, so now that I am feeling better here it is. 

Kiss® Ever PRO Lashes

I was not a fan of this product it didnt look realistic on me, and it just seemed over the top on me. I did want to try some lashes so I might have to keep looking for a brand with not so much lash. 

Bath & Body Works® Fall Mini Candle

This product was gone the second day, the moment I opened the box my husband claimed it, and he loved it. It filled the entire room with this little candle alone. We have boughten biger candles with not that much powerful scent. We tend do buy cheaper candles because he goes thru them so fast but with the $10 coupon I will be purchasing him a bigger one. 

NYC New York Color IndividualEyes

I liked this product but I wouldn't usually where these colors often, just on date nights sometimes. I liked the primer it really made the makeup stay on longer, I did the color test in my arm and I fell asleep on the couch and my alarm didnt go off the next morning so I raced to school, and at 6 pm the next day the color strip I did with the primer was still on my arm, so I will use the primer from NYC. 

Not Your Mother's Kinky Moves

My all time favorite item in this box, well actually I have two but Not Your Mothers Kinky Moves gave my crazy untamable wavy/ curly hair actual curls. I forgot to take a picture of my hair, but I loved it. It didn't make my hair hard or crunchy it was soft. I  also was about a nickel size amount for my thick wavy hair. I just loved how it curled my hair. My hair usually has a mind of its own. One day I wake up with curly hair, or some days its just wavy. So this product I love. I fallowed the directions on this product and it worked. I will buy this product. 

Goody Simple Styles Spin Pin

This was my favorite too. I have used this product more than anything else. I love this for when I straighten my hair and I want to put it up and I don't want the crease from the hair tie. I also like how it held up my hair, I have a lot of hair,so  I was afraid that it wouldn't hold up all my hair, but I didnt have a problem with it. 

Vitabath® Fragrance Mist

I really liked this product as well, it was just the right amount of scent not to overwhelming and it was just simple. I sprayed on me this morning around 7am and I can still smell it on me. I like the scent of the one I received I cant recall the name. But it was nice. 

ASU Shirt Purse

A few weeks ago I had a project due for my Public Admin class, and he wanted us to experience something we wanted to do but haven't done. So I wanted to make a T-shirt purse. It was actually kind of simple. But I did it all by hand and I was really proud of it. I found the tutorial on pinterest.

Halloween 2012 (pic heavy)

I hope everyone had a fantastic holiday, this post is a little late, but better late then never! The Friday before Halloween we also carved pumpkins and decorated Halloween cookies. It was so much fun. We also went to a festival at a church. The kids had so much fun. Oh and the kids also had a harvest festival that day at their school. So that Friday was an action packed day and by 9 the kids were so exhausted. I will load pictures of the school festival on another post. 

So on Halloween, my kids(and niece)  had a great time, they loved their costumes. Lily was a Zombie, so we just bought her a monster high costume and did zombie makeup. She thought she was so scary, she didnt want to scare the people giving away the candy! ha ha. My Sammy was Iron Man.As soon as we put on the costume his whole personality changed, He got so serious. Like I am Iron Man. Hilarious!  He also slept in his costume that night.

She was a perfect Zombie, she frightened me a little.

Witch Broom- Halloween Decorations

     My kids and I got together this weekend and made a witch broom decoration. I think its the cutest thing. We bought the broom at Michaels Crafts and we bought the pumpkins at the dollar section in Target.  We got the stickers from Michaels too. Oh and the ribbon was from a craft bucket we also got from Michaels as well. I really regret not taking pictures of the kids actually doing it because it was a fun project for them.

Exterior Finished Playhouse. Update

I spent my entire morning painting. I think I did  a really good job! Its not the best and its not perfect. My kids love it tho.  The paint on the door is paint I got from Home Depot, it was one of those return paints, so I got a bucket for $5. Then the outline brown paint my step dad had in his shed. I mixed those together to get the red brink paint. I think it came out really nice. I am proud of myself for saving money!

I took out the window for now, I am not sure what I am gonna do with it. 

I love how it came out. 
Side view there no was sun, so the picture is kinda bad.

Play House *Project 1 Update*

Just wanted to inform you guys of the playhouse update.  I  maybe scraped and brushed all the paint chips off of the house. So we could primer it. This project is not close to being completed. We have a lot going on right now, with our time and money. So I am hoping to have this done by the end of this year. 

This is after scraping for about two hours

This is the best picture I could do. 

Before pic

After. We added fake grass.

The kids they love it.

Added their toys . 

This girl is always posing.

What the kids did for Easter.

I found a recipe online for coloring eggs using kool-aid packets. It was really neat, they came out great but I forgot to take pictures of the eggs when I was done with them. It was a great day tho, We had a brunch with my family. When Tony got off work we went to my dads and had a dinner with him, and then off to Tonys mom. We were so exhausted.

Side note, yet again   I think I went just a tad bit overboard on their Easter backers. After doing the math later, I spent a lot more then I had realized. Next year I plan to do better!  I think. ha ha.
later that day at my dads, I forgot to take pictures of them. In their cute outfits. 

Lily coloring her eggs.

Sammy;s first time coloring eggs.
I love this picture, that determined to get that egg.
