It's New Year's Eve and what perfect time to review a new nail polish!  I received a bottle of Sally Hansen Triple Shine Nail Color and I thought it would be awesome to use for a fun New Year's Eve mani.

The Triple Shine line is available in 29 shades and is formulated to give you non-stop shine.  It features an Ultimate Shield Complex, which is designed to help polish withstand the wear and tear of everyday living.

I received #390 Sparks Fly.  It's a sheer blue polish with small and large hexagonal glitter, as well as micro glitter.  It's a festive color that's easy to apply.  The polish has a wide and flat brush, similar to the Sally Hansen Insta-Dry and Complete Salon polishes.

Goody® Athletique Reversible Quick Dry Headbands Review

DISCLOSURE:  I received a complimentary product from Influenster to facilitate this review.  My opinions are my own.

I don't tend to wear headbands.  They usually don't stay on my head and often, they aren't very comfortable to wear.  My nine-year-old daughter wears a headband almost everyday, but she tends to wear the hard plastic kind.  When I've tried to wear them, they end up hurting my ears and sliding off my head.

In the Violet VoxBox that I recently got from Influenster, I received the Goody Athletique Reversible Quick Dry Headband.  The Goody Athletique line of products give you hold and comfort so you can be physically active and strong in body and mind.  The headband features:
  • Lightweight, moisture-wicking fabric that keeps you cool, dry and comfortable
  • Reversible for two looks in one
  • Wide band shape holds back flyaways

Not Your Mother's Clean Freak Refreshing Dry Shampoo

It takes me forever to get ready in the morning.  The majority of the time is spent doing my hair.  I wash it pretty much every morning.  But, I can't just wash and go.  With my thick hair and slight wave, I have to blow dry it straight and then go over it at the end with a flat iron.  If I'm planning to go anywhere in the morning, I know that I have to get up at least 2 hours before I need to leave to make sure I have enough time to get ready.  Not cool when I end up having to get up at 4:30 in the morning!

I had read about dry shampoos a few years ago and it sounded like it would be the answer to my prayers!  Something I could spray in my hair that gets rid of the oiliness and gross feeling my hair gets the second day.  I started out with a couple drugstore brands, but they didn't give me the results I wanted.  Then, I tried a couple salon brands, but also wasn't happy with the results.  So, when I received the Not Your Mother's Clean Freak Refreshing Dry Shampoo, I got excited.  Yay, something else to try! And I wouldn't have to feel bad shelling out money if it didn't work...
