Bluum May 2013-- Giggle Monster Box

So this month we got a Bluum box.  We ordered it for Jack since Eli gets CL every month.  So Jack got the Giggle Monster box and we really liked it!  :)  Bluum is $25.00 a month and they have a different theme for every month of age.  They do have some customer service issues, but I have to say that each box we have gotten from them has been a really good box. 

This is the box!  Lots of cute things all around!
Jack LOVES Mum Mum's so I was super happy to find these.  New flavor (Apple) and a $1.00 off coupon!  SCORE!  ($2.94)
This is another thing that Jack enjoyed!  Bobo Buddy Caterpillar Paci Holder.  Tonight he had the yellow end in his mouth and was happily chewing on it...  Not the paci!  lol.  It's cute and not to big and you can change out the paci's!  Awesome!  ($13.99)
BabyBug May/June 2013 toddler magazine.  Cute, but IDK what Jack would do with it other than drool...  lol.  ($3.77)
This is cute!  It's called a B Kids Twist n' Smile.  Jack will really enjoy this on the plane ride to New York!  :)  Very colorful and makes rattle sounds too!  ($7.39)
DreamBaby Bath Tub Thermometer.  Eli loves this one right now!  He loves thermometers.  lol.  ($13.99)
Angel Dear Monster Blankie.  Jack will LOVE this!  He has a little caterpillar that he likes to sleep with and I think this just might take over!  :)  ($8.17)
And finally, last but not least, a mOmma teether Fred the Penguin!  Jack already has a walrus one but he really likes it and I think this might make it's way to the freezer soon!  :)  ($5.99)
Over all this box was perfect for Jack!  The value is estimated at $57.24!  What a great value!  :) :)

Spring Fever VoxBox from Influinster

I recieved my Spring Fever VoxBox from Influinster yesterday!  Woot-woot!  I am excited to review these awesome products that they send me for FREE!  :) 

This is the box!  I can't tell you how excited I was to finally get it and see what was inside!  :)
All the awesome products in the box!  :) :) :)
This is the NYC New York Color Appleicious Glossy Lip Balm.  I already tried this and it goes on really smooth and the color is nice.  I got the Big Apple Red color and it goes on really sheer and glossy.  :)

This is Secret Outlast Clear Gel Antiperspirant/Deoderant.  Haven't tried it yet, but am sure it will come in handy during the summer months in Florida!  :)
Now these are something that I haven't used in AGES!  lol.  Broadway Nails imPRESS Press-on Manicure in Space Cadet.  I haven't used press on nails since I was in middle school!  lol.  But I am willing to give them a try!  :)
This is OSIS Gelastic from Schwarzkopf Professional.  I am excited to try this out!  With my super short and super curly hair I am always looking for something to help define the curls...  Hopefully this will be it!  :)
Finally the last thing was a Tastykake Kandy Bar Kakes.  I say "was" because it only lasted as long as it took to take this picture!  lol.  It was YUM-O!  I might have to find some more of these...  :)
This box was full of great stuff to try out, some I have already tried before and some new things.  Can't wait to try them all!  :)

Influinster-- Palmolive VoxBox!

This is my first Influinster VoxBox!  I was really excited to be chosen for the Palmolive VoxBox.  :)

I had a few issues getting this box...  2 weeks ago my mailperson didn't deliver the box even though the shipping number said it was out for delivery.  Then I called earlier this week to the post office and they never got back to me.  Finally today I WENT to the post office and they found the package.  One of the dish soaps had burst during shipping and that is why they haden't delivered it to my house.  But once I got it home, I was able to salvage most of the package!  :)

The original package had 5 $1.00 off coupons and 2 bottles of Palmolive.  So I was able to save most of the package!  Woot Woot!  :)
Today was a good day to get dish soap too!  We had lots of dishes to wash!  :)

With very little of the Palmolive, I was able to get lots of soapy suds to wash all the dishes!

Even after tackling all those dishes, there were still lots of soap suds to go around!  The smell of the Palmolive was great!  :)

Even my self manicure was still in tack!  :)

Overall Palmolive was great!  I loved the scent and the feel!  It was really soft on my hands!  I really enjoyed using this dish soap!  :)

Cirtus Lane Unboxing! (May 2013, 3.5 year old boy!)

Woot woot!  We finally got our May Citrus Lane box!  (Our postmen are having some difficulty finding our house for packages!)  But as always, Eli was super excited about this!  He loves to see the yellow box waiting for him!  :)

I think this months unofficial theme was Spring time.  :)


The Gigantic Turnip from Barefoot Books...  It has a CD with it too!  $9.99
Melissa and Doug garden gloves  $4.80
Planting Kit from Green Toys  $5.99
Clean Well Disinfectant wipes about $2.19
Deep Steep Moisture Stick  $3.70
Snackimals Cereal Cinnamon Crunch  about $3.50

This box was great.  :)  We paid about $21.00 for the box (a yearly subscription) and the products were worth about $30.17.  Most of the time Citrus Lane has a higher return on the value, but it was still a good box.  The book is great and the moisture stick for mom smells wonderful!  :)



And as always, Eli loved opening this box to see all the goodies! 
The cereal was actually lunch today!  :)

Smiley360 Mission-- BIC Mark-It Markers

I am really digging Smiley360!  They are choosing me to try out all kinds of great products!  Most recently Eli and I were chosen for a CRAFTING mission with BIC Mark-It Markers!  Woot woot!  We were sent a box with a FREE 36 count pack of BIC Mark-It Markers, 3 magnetic photo frames, 3 glitter glue tubes and some gem stickers.  We couldn't wait to get to town and make our photo frames for the fridge! 

So apparently today was the PERFECT day to do some crafting!  :)  It poured all afternoon here in "sunny" South Florida.  lol.  So out came the crafts to do something fun.  :)

Eli all ready for a project!

Eli had a great time helping decorate the frames!

We ended up making 3 frames...  One for Eli, one for Jack and one that said Family so we can have the different pictures up.  :)

The BIC Mark-It Markers were AWESOME!  They were great colors!  Eli, right now, is in love with the color pink and there were at least 4 different shades of pink in the 36 colors!  :)  So he was really excited.  The markers were really bright, easy to use and fun. :)

Over all, the BIC Mark-It Markers were great!  Great colors, smooth writing, fun to use!  I can see using these for many crafts in the future!


I was blessed to get choosen for yet another Smiley360 Mission!  This time was was for Aveeno Nourish+ Dandruff Control Hair Care.  I was sent coupons for FREE products!  AWESOME!  :)

So off to the store I went (I went to WalMart) and got my bottles.  :)  I have an issue with "flaking" in my hair sometimes.  Mostly due to the fact that I can't stand washing my hair so I push the limits on washing.  :/  Good, bad or indifferent that is what I do!  :) 

I have used the 2-in-1 Shampoo/Conditioner twice now.  It is FANTASTIC!  Each time I used it I have noticed less "flaking", more bounce, my hair feels cleaner and my crazy curls are more defined.  I really am enjoying using this shampoo/conditioner! 

Over all, Aveeno has hit it out of the park on this one!  I really like the smell and feel of my hair after I use the shampoo/conditioner and I think it might be my go to product from now on!  :)

Here is a $3.00 off coupon!  Woot woot!

Ipsy GlamBag (May 2013)

This was my first Ipsy GlamBag and I AM AMAZED!  It was an AWESOME bag! 

First of all the packaging is FANTASTIC! 
What girl wouldn't want to see this cute pink bubble wrap in her mail box?!
Each month you get a cute make-up bag, this month's was blue, orange and white chevron print.
This is the Zoya nailpolish in Julie. 
When I saw the spoiler for this I REALLY wanted the purple or the yellow
and am SO HAPPY I got this color! 
I already painted my nails!  lol
This is Mirabella in Day Dream.  This is a really light glossy color.  Like it!
These are Juice Beauty lipgloss in Champaign.  Very glossy and light in color.
and the Yaby concealer in Honey.  I am excited about this one because I am still new to make-up and this isn't intimidating at all!  :)
And finally my FAVORITE thing in the bag!  Pacifica Gardenia Roller-Ball Perfume.
I thought that the nailpolish would be my favorite, but this is totally!
The scent is wonderful and I put it on right away and it wears beautifuly!
I am really happy I got this one and not the vanilla one!  lol
I paid $10.00 for this bag.
The total worth of this bag was $61.85!  I will think that is a great return on my purchase!  :)
I am super happy with my Ipsy GlamBag and I am really looking forward to next month!  :)
