Crafts and BabbaBox!

Hi there! Whew today was my last final in college, PRAISE THE LORD! lol.

So now that I have all this free time what am I going to do you ask?

Well. Today me and my baby sister made a really cool craft and had fun just spendin time with each other. I love this baby girl to death! πŸ™‚

Let me introduce the BabbaBox:

The BabbaBox is a box filled with lots of goodies and crafts that are sent to you every month (kind of like a monthly subscription deal) and it has several different crafts and lots of fun ideas and cool gadgets that you and your child can make and enjoy!

When I recieved mine in the mail, my baby sister (who is 5) couldn’t contain her excitement, we started a project right away!

20121212-114432.jpgThis months theme was Sun, Moon, & Stars. It included 2 fun projects, a fun pair of binoculars, a storybook, lots of cool tips and tricks, online access, and even a little gift for me πŸ™‚

I loved the projects because it gave time for my sister and I to spend quality time together and I gotta admit, they were fun too! πŸ™‚

The crafts that were included were making a paper-mache “moon” light and making a constellation using very cool sunpaper!

We did both of the crafts and had a ton of fun! I even learned a few things about the sun and moon that I didn’t know. My little sister also enjoyed learning these facts and had fun using her binoculars and reading the cute book that was also in the box.

Influenster Beauty Blogger VoxBox 2012

Hey there everyone,
Today I wanted to share and review my Influenster Beauty Blogger VoxBox I received in the mail! As I mentioned in a previous post, I am part of the Influenster program. It’s really cool, check it out! Influenster.com

20121109-172157.jpgHere is my box when I opened it!

Here is what was inside and my thoughts:

20121109-172218.jpg

Kiss Ever Pro Lashes Starter Kit: Retails for $5.99. “Bring the salon home with this eyelash starter kit, complete with eyelashes, adhesive, and applicator. This latex free glue has a 24 hour hold, for lashes you can bat all day and all night”. I have never used this brand before but it is actually very good quality and easy to use! I liked the lashes too, they are very dramatic but natural looking.

20121109-172225.jpg

Not Your Mother’s Smooth Moves Frizz Control Hair Cream: Β Retails for $6.00 for 4 oz bottle. “Smooth moves Β fights out of control hair and reduces styling time with coconut and silk extracts”. This is perfect because I get frizzy hair in the rainy Seattle weather! I just put some in my wet hair after the shower and my har is frizz free, and it smells great πŸ™‚

20121109-172230.jpg

NYC Individual Eyes Custom Compact: Retails for $4.99. “This all in one compact comes with everything you need for a complete eye look: primer, illuminator, applicator, and complementing shadows. With 4 colors, specially coordinated to intensify and enhance your eye color, you can create a look as individual as you are. Make your eyes pop!” I like this palette, its very neutral, nothing to crazy so I can wear it anywhere, and its very affordable! Great color pigmentation too!

Bath and Body Works Mini Candles:Retails for $3.50. “Mini but mighty! Bath and Body Works mini candles provide am amazing fragrance experience exclusively developed and tested by a team of Home Fragrance experts, including the world’s best master perfumers. Also comes with $10 off coupon πŸ™‚ If you have been reading my previous posts, you would know that I am the BIGGEST fan of Bath and Body Works candles, I probably have all the scents ever made! So when this little guy came, imagine my surprise! It smells like yummy cake, I LOVE IT!!

20121109-172306.jpg

Goody Simple Styles Spin Pins: Retails for $7.29. “Never have the time for a greta hairdo? Not anymore! The Goody Simple Styles Spin Pins allow you to easily achieve three chic updo styles. Simply twirl your hair up and spin the two Spin Pins in for a perfect undone bun, side bun, or double bun!” I love these, I am so glad I got these because I always put my hair up for college and days when I have no time to do my hair, so this is perfect for me! At first I was skeptical because how in the world do they hold your hair up? But believe me, they are great! Here’s how you put them in my hair:

I also recieved EBOOST: Retails at $28 for 20 powders. “EBOOST will boost your mood, focus and immunity with natural ingrediants and no crash. As a shot or an easy to mix powder in 4 flavors, you’ll feel great whether you choose Orange, Pink Lemonade, Acai Pomegranate, or Super Berry. Honestly, this was gross. I just did not like it, had a wierd look and ever weirder taste! 😦

Overall, this was a great box!

All these products were sent to me for free to try and these are my honest reviews.

Love and kisses,

Miss M
