Unbox " Sugar 'n Spice VoxBox" from Influenster.

Hi guys, I've been anticipating receiving my Sugar 'n Spice VoxBox from Influenster.com for a couple weeks. It's finally here! I'll post a video for the initial unbox reveal. Okay, Let me tell you guys what I think about each product I received. 


Let's see! Where do I start this VoxBox contained great products.
  
VoxBox Content:

-Colgate Optic white regimen-  
-Optic White toothpaste
-Optic White mouthwash
-360 Optic White Toothbrush
-Dickinson's Witch Hazel Towlettes
-Nectresse Natural Sweetener
-Belvita Breakfast Biscuits
-Vaseline Spray 'n Go 

Colgate Optic White Regimen:
This is my favorite toothpaste on the market, it really whitened in the first use for me. I have been using this since over the Winter, so it was time to replace my brush. also ran out of paste so this was a great surprise to find in my box. I had purchased the new Dual Action a couple days before.

    
Dickinson's Witch Hazel: These are a great toning or anytime you need a freshen up!


Belvita Breakfast Biscuits: Man o' man, what can I say these are tasty and work so well, that I brought a box. The serving size says 1 pack: however I ate 2 out of the pack and it gave me enough energy for the rest of the day.  I believe there are three flavors, I have the cinnamon brown sugar. I'm a fan!
 
 Vaseline Spray & Go': 3 words Great for Summer. Get ready to showoff some leg in that new dress or skirt. Just spray on Spray and go for light-weight moisture and no greasy feeling.


Nectresse: This is a tasty all natural sweetener made with monk fruit this is great in green tea, light taste. Not too sweet or syrupy.

Review: Schick Hydro Silk Razor... Giveaway link!

I'm not huge on razors, I'm a waxer and a hair remover girl. But, I got the new Schick Hydro Silk and this would be my razor of choice for shaving.   




The Schick Hydro Silk razor is a quick and painless way to remove hair. It has 5 Curve Sensing Blades and a water activated moisturizing serum.

The serum is so moisturizing you don't need a shaving gel or cream. I tried with the Skintimate Hydro Silk shaving lotion and I prefer it alone; it leaves the skin soft and smooth with a silky feeling. This is a quick shave I haven't gotten any hair bumps when using this. I certainly recommend it. 

The kit comes includes:
1 Hydro Silk Razor 
1 Replacement Head 
and 1 suction cup for the easy access in the shower. 

the retail is about $13 well worth it.

Buy here Schick Hydro Silk Razor - 1 Razor and 6 replacement cartridges (Google Affiliate Ad)

How to relax at home... Home Spa & Contest!

After a long week if work, a few classes, and kids I'm ready to unwind and I need to be pampered. I don't always feel like going out around people and I don't always want to spend a ton of money.  You always have the option of doing an at home spa day maybe you and your sister best friend, or daughter.

Lavender & home made Lavender soap

1.What You'll Need:
A relaxing scent like Lavender (my fave)
Foot Spa Bath
Facial Steamer (Optional)
Paraffin Foot & Hand Spa(Optional)
Your Favorite Polish    
4 sided Nail File/Buffer, Cuticle Pusher, Pumice, nail brush
Pedicure soak, scrub, and lotion
Facial cleanser, toner, moisturizer, scrub, and Clay Mask
Cucumber slices, olive oil, brown sugar, lemon juice, raw honey
Chamomile & peppermint tea or peppermint oil
Lavender Bubble Bath & Bath Dead Sea Salts 
Schick Hydro Silk razor, wax or hair remover


Set The Mood:
Start your at home spa day by setting the mood. make sure the house is clean, blinds are closed or slightly opened. candles are lit and I scent my home with Glade Expressions, I love the oil candles and now they have the new Glade Expressions Air Mist & Oil Diffusers home decor the best scent to relax is the Lavender & Juniper! Lavender is a natural scent that relaxes the Mind, Body, & Soul.
 


Facial:
 Start with a home facial first cleanse the face to remove all traces of dirt.
Place a Chamomile tea bag w/ a drop or 2 of Peppermint oil in my
face steamer; you may use a bowl or clean sink if you don't have one. Place a towel over your head to hold the steam in for about 10-20 minutes. The Chamomile will calm the skin,while the steam opens the pores, the Peppermint will help remove any deep down dirt.

Next use an apricot scrub to loosen dirt in my pores.  Use a clay mask to pull out all loosened dirt & oils from pores; while mask is drying lay back and place Cucumber slices over eyes. Then remove with a cool rag, next remove any leftovers with a witch hazel, glycerine, rose water & Aloe based toner.  Finally moisturize using upward motions




3. Manicure & Pedicure: 

I recommend Avon Pedi and mani products  

Hands- Wash Hands,
- File 1 hand at a time
- Soak in soapy water in a bowl, clean with nail brush 1 at a time . 
- Push cuticles back. 
-Scrub with a home made scrub of 1/4 cup brown sugar, 1tbsp. olive oil,  1tsp. lemon juice, and 1tsp. raw honey. Your hands will feel like silk. 
-Wash hands, Polish base coat, your fave polish and a top coat, don't forget to use a moisturizing balm when done repeat other hand.


Feet- Pour foot soak into foot spa, soak for about 15-20 minutes, Next do each step 1 foot at a time 
-Push cuticles back 
-Brush nails
-File toe nails 
-Scrub the foot with a pumice, then use the foot scrub on foot massaging upward toward calf rinse, polish, moisturize and repeat on other foot.


4. Relax with a Bath

Place candles in bath area, pull out your favorite book, pour your Lavender Bubble bath and dead sea salts in the tub, under hot/warm water maybe a little epsom salt, tie your hair up, put on some Sade, get your favorite nighty, and take a nice relaxing bath all while detoxing your body. (note; dead sea salts and Epsom salts detox the body).

Trends We Love!!!

Some trends die hard... These top trends are hot and aren't going anywhere... anytime soon!

I'm not big trend follower, but some trends, are just pure fashion and I'm a Fashion Lover. If you aren't on the band wagon for these trendy favorites, than you must live in the 'Land of the Lost" or on another planet. Some of these trends are here to stay.




1. Ombre- Everything from clothing, to hair and nails. This bi and tri-color look is all that, this is number 1 in my book. A hit started in 2012 and is continuing in 2013.  

2. Sheer- My second favorite is Sheer Tops look amazing paired with jeans, leggings, and skirts, throw a blazer over it; or stand out and wear it plain.



3. Arm candy- A mix of bracelets with sort of a theme, a watch, leather cuffs, chains, spikes, & bangles Fab-u-lous!!!



4. Skinny Jeans & Leggings- These make legs great, and bootys look even better. You can't go wrong with a pair of these.





5. Wedge Shoes- Heels, Sneakers and Ankle Boots. I'm not sure if this clunky trend will stay, but it's definitely on top.

6. Skulls- I absolutely despise this trend, though it does add an edge to some pieces.

5 Ways To Treat Winter Skin!

Is winter wreaking havoc on your skin and nails. The one season out of the year; that depletes moisture and leaves me with dry and itchy skin. There are some steps that we all should take to replenish moisture, for healthy glowing skin all year round. Your Spring/Summer products may differ from your Fall/winter products.


Courtesy of  http://www.ehow.com/how_4676005_free-beauty-products.html
5 ways to treat dry skin:

1.Water: this is a no brainer the body is made up of 70% water, 64 oz's a day. This includes, teas and 100% juices but water should be priority. If you're like me and get so busy you forget to stop and take a sip; download the water app on your phone, it's a great reminder. Smart water is great because it has about 3 servings and contains minerals. I prefer Ice Mountain, but my fave is Kiwaii, to me it taste better than Fiji and I'm a water snob or shall I say connoisseur .

2.Cleanse: All natural soaps and body washes are key to moisturized skin, while regular soaps contain harsh ingredients and chemicals that dry out the skin. Natural washes and soaps contain natural Aloe Vera,natural oils, and glycerin. These are natural humectants which dtaws moisture to the skin and hair. 

3.Exfoliate: There are several ways to do this, dry brush with a long handled body brush or a vegan Loofah and Apricot or Walnut body scrub. For maximum results and smooth skin, I personally. Would use both methods. For the face use apricot of home made brown sugar scrub. However If you have sensitive skin I would use only a nonabrasive all natural sugar scrub for body and face.

4. Moisture: Again I recommend an all or mostly natural moisturizer; at least 96% or higher. These can vary from Aloe Vera, Shea, Mango and Cocoa butter, willowbark, Hylauronic acid, olive and Coconut oil,Pumpkin extract, Hemp seed, Avocado, Macadamia, Jojoba, and Sweet Almond oil etc.

5.Nutrition: Fruits, Vegetables, Avocado, Sweet Potato high in Vita A. Whole grains, Quinoa, Brown Rice, and Barley. Protein from baked Chicken or Fish, salmon is great because it contains Omega fatty acids, which plumps the skin and helps give it a glow. More and the best protein are nuts Almonds and Walnuts are some of the best. I also recommend beauty supplements containing biotin, MSM, Folic Acid, Collagen, Inositol, Zinc,Vitamin A, C,E and B complex. These nutrients revitalize and renew the skin, nails and hair which stimulates healthy growth. I use Rejuvicare and Hairfinity (link bottom of page) vitamins. will post a review when I reach my desired results. 



5. Shower Water: If you notice that your tap water smells like bleach; it's because the water company uses Chlorine to kill harmful bacteria, microorganisms and pollutants. This is 1 of the main reasons that I refuse to drink tap water. The Chlorine is also harmful to hair and skin stripping Sebum, which is the natural oil our body secretes. This can cause the skin to become dry and irritated, as well as eye irritation, and even hair to become brittle. The best way to get rid of the Chlorine is with a shower filter, which filters out the chlorine. Prices vary from about $50 and up. The replacement filters run around $25.

New year, New You 2013 & Update/Upgrade

Its a new year, a time that brings about renewal, and a change. It's time for New Beginnings. I started a 21 day consecration. During which I've limited all Social Networking to once/twice a week. Please be patient with me. I will update as often as possible. I'm glad that I'm doing this because, a ton of doors have opened, and a larger scale of opportunities. In my field such as Event Planning/Coordinating with http://www.fabulouscsevents.com/, radio, and a magazines. If you would like a copy of the fast I'm doing or tips, I will do a post. Just leave a comment below.
 Mental & Spiritual:
  I'd like to challenge you to take a stand and challenge yourself to a new mental, physical, and spiritual way of living. Get rid of the things that bind you,break those habits, that hold you back.. It's time for renewal of mind body and soul. here are some great books that have helped me. These books range from both Christian and Spiritual. The Purpose Driven Life, One Day my Soul just opened up and more by Iyanla Vanzant! you can purchase those two below by clicking on the photo. Two more, the first is great to be used with a 40 ay fast calledd 40 days to a G.O.L.D (God ordained Life disciple) by Mr. Les Brown and then I like Reposition yourself by Bishop T.D Jakes! These are all great if you're Spiritual but, not religious Iyanla Vanzant is the best .








 Physical Makeover:
  
Lose weight, inches, cleanse your body of all the toxins, and  waste.

 I wonder if this works, I've tried the homemade organic lemon, maple syrup, and cayenne from the Health whole food store, and it did work, it's a great temporary fix, but if you want long term results read the paragraph below.



Body wraps are all the rave, I prefer a wrap that's no commitment and offers a complete all natural organic body wrap & detox kits & customized plan according each individual customers needs.

My partners and I are launching our own we;ve done the research and sought out the best ingredients. We'll be posting video and before and after photo's soon. If you're local you may, join us at a wrap party, schedule a session at my spa space on the Eastside of Columbus, Oh or my partners salon on the Northside. We have Portable Sauna Systems and will offer mobile service free of charge! (depending on your package). 

Look Good Feel Good!!!

After you lose that weight and tighten up that body; you want to drape it in garments that make you look and feel like a million bucks w/o the price.

If you guys like the clothing and outfits I post from weekender; stay tuned. I just got my retail license and will be launching an online boutique, and our tees. If you are local, you can come to me, or I'll come to you. Clothing will be available on Ebay, Craigslist, or locally prior to Boutique Launch. I will post links and update soon but heres a sneak peak!
