Lancôme Visionnaire Crescendo VoxBox from Influenster - REVIEW

Monday, May 29, 2017

DISCLOSURE: I received free products from Influenster for review purposes. My opinions are my own.

As much as I don't want to admit it, I'm going to be turning 40 next year! Scary thought. To keep my skin looking young, I've been doing more in the past couple years to try and slow the aging process.

Last month, I was sent the Lancôme VoxBox from Influenster to try. It included:
  • Visionnaire Crescendo - a dual phase night peel
  • Bienfait UV SPF 50+ - a broad spectrum SPF 50+ super fluid facial sunscreen
  • Matte Shaker - comfort matte high pigment  liquid lipstick

NOW Women's Probiotic 20 Billion - REVIEW + GIVEAWAY - Ends 5/31/17

Wednesday, May 24, 2017

DISCLOSURE: I received this product for free from Moms Meet (, May Media Group LLC, who received it directly from the manufacturer. As a Moms Meet blogger, I agree to use this product and post my honest opinion on my blog. The opinions posted are my own.

Lately, I've been paying more attention to what I eat. My metabolism isn't what it used to be and I can't eat the way I did 15 years ago. In addition to being more mindful of the foods I'm eating, I've begun looking into nutritional supplements to help me look and feel better.

One type of supplement that I had been considering are probiotics. I had begun noticing that my stomach would get upset after eating. I couldn't really pinpoint what it was that was making it upset. It just seemed like everything I ate was making me feel sick. I already have a ton of food allergies and so I was afraid that maybe I was developing a gluten sensitivity, too.

Revlon ColorStay Eye Makeup Review

Sunday, May 21, 2017

DISCLOSURE: I received free samples from Crowdtap to facilitate this review. All opinions are my own.

My eye makeup routine is pretty simple. I put concealer under my eyes. I put some eye shadow on. I tightline my top lid and then put a little mascara on. I never really do anything with my brows, other than brush through them and get them threaded every couple weeks.

Recently, I had the chance to try Revlon ColorStay™ 2-in-1 Angled Kajal Eyeliner, Revlon ColorStay™ Crème Eye Shadow, Revlon ColorStay™ Brow Pencil, and Revlon Super Length Mascara. Since I've never really done anything to my brows before, I was excited to give it a go.

The Claude Moore Colonial Farm at Turkey Run

Wednesday, May 10, 2017

We have a goal this year to visit as many national parks as we can. We got a little off track, but managed to visit one on Easter morning. We were going to a lunch at my sister's in Leesburg, VA, so we took a side trip to visit The Claude Moore Colonial Farm at Turkey Run in McLean, VA.
