Dino Lingo in French

I recently watched this clip of Dino Lingo's French Learning for Kids. It's one of the best language learning programs I have come across. Me and my 7 year old son sat here and watched it together. We learned how to say cat, "chat" in french among other words and small phrases. 
The Dino Lingo programs break down language learning for kids on screen by showing them pictures to go along with the word they are learning. It's very easy to catch on to and pick up. My son loves it. He learned a few words just by watching the 3:46 clip
If you'd like to check out the Dino Lingo website and check out the French Language section that I have been talking about, please click HERE. You will find their website very helpful and useful. You can watch clips as well as order online. So don't hesitate to do so. Head on over now!

Bath and Body Works Fall Mini Candle

Fall Mini Candle from Bath & Body Works.

I received a fall mini candle from Bath & Body Works in my Influenster Beauty Blogger Vox Box. I received a White Barn: Nutmeg & Spice scented candle. It smells amazing! It makes my whole room smell great & I don't even have to light it. I loved the scent so much I took my coupon I received from my voxbox and bought another White Barn Fall Scented Candle in Marshmallow Fireside. This one also smells amaaaazing!
Bath and Body works really outdid themselves with their new scents for their fall candles. They all smell so good. These smaller "mini" candles, may look small but the pack a whole lot of great scent into that "mini" candle. The mini candles are also great if you'd like to try out a scent. I really recommend trying the Nutmeg & Spice mini candle. It's one of my absolute favorites. 
These candles are $3.50 a piece or 2 for $5.00!
So check out these candles online or at a Bath and Body Works near you!

Goody Spin Pins

In my Influenster #BloggerVoxBox was a pack of Goody Spin Pins. These are the greatest things created to make a perfect bun. I wish I had taken pictures to show everyone how well these worked. I used them in my daughters hair to create the perfect pigtail buns. Her hair is so thin I only needed one for each side. Why didn't they make these when I was younger?? Haha
The Goody Spin pins are easy to use but you have to be careful not to get them tangled in your hair. It will hurt if you do. If you get them caught please ask someone for help. They are easy to use once you get the hang of it. It did take me a few times but I did get it to work on my own hair. When I did my daughters hair I guess you could say I was a "pro" at it. It took me one shot to get them in and her hair in buns. I really like the idea of these and I plan on getting her some for stocking stuffers. They make the greatest stocking stuffers for tween girls. 
Be creative and have fun with these. If you need more then one pack to create your look, then get them. I seen these at walmart near me for about 5 dollars or less. That is not a bad price at all.

NYC New York Color Individual Eyes

Who here has ever tried to create a smokey eye and failed miserably like I have?? I haven't been able to create one for many years up until now. When I received my influenster Blogger #VoxBox I also received a NYC New York Color Individual Eyes Custom Compact for my eyes. This helped me create the perfect smokey eye for a perfect Ladies Night Out event with two of my best friends. This compact is labeled and lets you know where to put each color. Perfect for me! I love it. It was so helpful in creating a smokey eye that I am pretty sure anyone can do it. I am planning on buying a few of the other colors. I mean at about 4.99 per compact, it's pretty much a steal. It's like having a makeup artist sitting there with you showing you what to do! It is really a helpful compact. I wish all eyeshadows were just like this one.

Check them out on FacebookTwitter, or their Website!!

Boots No7

In my Influenster #BloggerVoxBox I received two bottles of Boots Beauty USA facial products. I received the cleansing lotion for normal/dry skin and I also received the night cream for normal to dry skin. I used the cleansing lotion in the morning before I started my day and the night cream (of course) at night before I went to bed. These two bottles have lasted me about 3 weeks now. I have just a little left. You don't need to put a lot on your face at all. You just use a small amount and work it in. I must say I have noticed a change in my skin. It has changed for the better. My face has less breakouts, (maybe because of the formula of the cream and cleanser), it feels more refreshed, less dry and soft! I really love how these two make my skin feel. I feel like my skin is glowing! It is a wonderful feeling. Boots Beauty has a lot of other products too. They make them for different skin types so I am sure you will be able to find one for you. 

Boots No7 according to the website is a Range of hypo-allergenic and dermatologically tested products created using only trusted ingredients.
They say that British women have loved the affordable quality of the skin care and cosmetics for over 75 years!!! That is a long time. If British women have loved it, I am sure American women do too. I know I do. Boots No7 is the UK's #1 cosmetic and skin care brand. Must be a honor to be that!

So click on one of the links in this post and get yourself some Boots No7 cosmetics and skin care products!!!

Kiss Ever Pro Lashes

When I received my Beauty Blogger VoxBox from Influenster and seen these were in it, I will be honest and say that I was kind of iffy about trying them. I have had some bad experiences with false lashes before. I could never get them to stay on, and usually they were expensive so I just ended up throwing them away and wasting money. Well let me say these are very inexpensive (Suggested retail is 4.99) and they are so incredibly easy to apply. They even come with their own application tool! I mean what more could you ask for in a false eyelash kit. These really do have a pro 24 hour hold on them. I wore them to a Ladies Night Out event and received so many compliments on how full and pretty my eyelashes were. I don't even think anyone realized they were falsies because they are so natural looking. They even have other styles you can choose from so take your pick! 
Did you see that these were made with 100% human hair? How many other brands can actually say that? They look and feel so real! Also the glue is latex free so you don't have to worry about that if you have a latex allergy. 

Check out their website :

Or check them out at retailers like Walmart, Target, etc!

If you are looking for a great pair of falsies, well look no further!

My Influenster Beauty Blogger VoxBox

I was so excited when Influenster choose me to receive and test out a Beauty Blogger VoxBox. I absolutely love makeup (I'll have to show you pics in a later blog how HUUUGE my collection is) and anything fashion. Well I waited patiently for my box to arrive and when it did, it had so many goodies inside. I must say Influenster did not disappoint. Here is what was in it:

Ok so lets start with the Kinky Moves Curl Defining Hair Cream by Not Your Mother's Brand.
I must say this is one brand that I am familiar with and I love it. I have wavy/curly hair. This hair product does wonders for my curls. Let me show you two pics of my hair. First one will be my hair straight and second will be a pic with me using the "Kinky Moves" 

I know these are definitely two different dates, but do you see the difference? It held my curls all night long. I went to a wedding (on the pic on the left) and with all the dancing I did and just having fun, the curls kept all night. This was the end of the night also, so you get to see how my curls were still there. It even made my hair look fuller and have volume. I love this curl defining cream because it has a great hold, without making my hair feel stiff or sticky. Thumbs up and A+ for this product!

Next up we have EBoost:

This is what the company has to say about it:
it’s better than energy.  It’s EBOOST.  
Americans are busier than ever but we’ve relied on bad energy to keep up…until now.
EBOOST is a boost that does more.  It’s a mood boost, focus boost, immunity boost, natural boost, a no-crash boost.
EBOOST uses real ingredients, stuff you’ve heard of like Vitamin C, Vitamin D, Green Tea, Vitamin B-12 and Folic Acid.  And the stuff you might not have heard of:  Quercetin, 5-HTP, Resveratrol, Huperzine-A — it’s all good too.  What could be sweeter than that?  Well, we even sweeten our product with Stevia, a plant, not a chemical.
What started as a celebrity secret for A-Listers like Madonna, Shakira, Oprah Winfrey and Amar’e Stoudemire is now a necessity for the multi-tasking generation.  We took the time to formulate a multi-purpose product that really works so you don’t have to waste time with mediocre products that sort of work.
Get your boost with the convenience of a shot, or an easy-to-mix powder packet in four delicious flavors:  Super Berry, Orange, Pink Lemonade and Acai Pomegranate.  No matter how you boost, you’re sure to feel great.  All day, every day.

  I was able to try Eboost Daily Health Booster in Orange. It was really good It was also easy to make. I grabbed a cup of ice cold water, added the packet, stirred it and drank. I really believe this worked for me. I began to notice I was more awake and alert almost immediately after drinking it. It lasted for a pretty good amount of the day. When it finally wore off there was no "crash" effect. I just felt normal. If you are looking for a "boost" go ahead and try EBoost. I highly recommend it.

Next thing that was in my box was Goody Spin Pins:

The Spin Pins help you achieve a bun in your hair without having to use a hair scrunchi or rubber band or anything like that. These were so easy to use too. At first I thought they were going to be complicated and I was thinking "Hmm maybe I don't want to attempt this," but it honestly went in my hair no problem and I was also able to get them out no problem also. I didn't get them stuck in my hair like I thought I would. I was able to us them in my hair even having such thin hair. I wear these alot now. My daughter even loves them. I wish I had taken a pic to show you. I will have to and put it in a seperate post just so you can see how great they look.

Well going further into my box of goodies, we next have The UK's #1 Beauty Brand (according to their website) No 7!

I have honestly never heard of this brand before. I was glad to get to discover something new. I was sent the cleansing lotion and the Night Cream. Hopefully I used these correctly. They both made my skin feel great. Nice and smooth. They were not harsh on my skin at all. I didn't break out after using these. I was afraid I might because I do have sensitive skin, but these were wonderful. They also were light weight.

The next thing that was in my box was NYC's Individual Eyes in the dark smokey eye pallet. Now I must say this is the greatest eyeshadow I have ever received. There's no more guessing on where to put the colors and how to create a smokey eye. The pallet is already labeled for you. I have never been able to create the smokey eye look until I received this. I am so glad I can finally achieve a great look without all the hardwork.  There are other pallets besides the dark smokey eye one. I think I am going to go out and buy some more. I really like these. Go ahead and give them a try.

The next thing in my box was a White Barn, Nutmeg & Spice  mini candle from Bath and Body Works. This candle smells amazing. It's a great fall scent.

Last but definitely not least is Kiss Ever Pro Lashes!

I tried other false eyelashes before and could never get them to go on or stay on. I swore I would never do false lashes again because of all the hassle behind them. When I received my box I looked at these and set these aside. I figured I would come back to them later and read up on them. I eventually picked up the box and opened it. I must say I regret not trying these out sooner. These were the easiest lashes to ever put on. They even have a little tool to help you. I wish they made these years ago. Hey but better late then never. I went out and bought a few more pairs already. I love the 04s. They are natural looking eyelashes. I recommend at least trying out this kit, to anyone who ever said they would never try false eyelashes for the same reason I said it. 

To my conclusion, this was a great #VoxBox. I am so glad I was able to receive this and review it. I had so much fun, thanks to Influenster and all the brands who participated.

NYM Kinky Moves Curl Defining Cream

So let me start out by saying I have loved the Not Your Mother's Brand for awhile now. So you must know how ecstatic I was when I opened my Beauty Blogger VoxBox and found a sample of the Kinky Moves Curl Defining Cream. (You should probably ask my fiance because I couldn't stop talking about it) I love discovering new hair products. Even being a huge fan of NYM Brand I have never tried the curl defining cream because I can never find it in a store near me. They only have select products they carry. So I tried it out and I absolutely love it!! If you are looking in stores for it, it looks like this:

This product is my absolute favorite to use for my curls. I love the smell of it first of all. Does anyone else think it smells just like candy? I mean what a great scent! I could just eat it up (but I won't). The second thing I love about it is that it holds my curls without the "crunchiness" or that stiff feeling! My curls are bouncy, free, and fun. Honestly who would want their hair to "crunch?" This is definitely the product to get for free flowing curls. 
The Not Your Mother's Brand is not expensive either. They run about $5.99 (or sometimes cheaper) at my local Walmart. I am pretty sure it's probably about the same everywhere. 

Here are some of their other products:

Try on or try them all!!!

Also connect with the on FACEBOOK or TWITTER.
I am already connected and love it. They are always doing contests or posting neat photos!
Here is a link to their website:
Also here is a pic of my curls:

Now these are just "loose" curls but I can do tighter curls and they still look great! This hairstyle lasted me all night at a wedding I attended! So you know that after all the dancing and having fun, if my hair still looks this good, then this is a great product to have!

I urge you all to go out and give it a try if you have curly hair!
