Vicks EasyFill Cool Mist Humidifier

I was so happy to get the Vicks easyfill cool mist humidifier to try out. This one comes with a filter for those with hard water so you don't have to stress about getting distilled water. They also have little cleaning packs! I love that I can go to most of my local stores and find the vicks pads and accessories. No worrying about placing orders when Im sick and just want to relax.

Theres two ways you can fill the tank. Carry the tank to the sink and fill OR you can carry a pitcher of water and pour into the tank. Thats my favorite way I find its less messy. You can control the mist level and theres no machine noise. There is some water noise from time to  time. You can use the menthol vicks pads when you're congested or the lavender pads for relaxing. I love the options! It has automatic shut off so you dont have to worry about it running when the tank runs out. You can angel the mist knob to point in the direction you need it to go.

Im very happy with this one and would recommend it to anyone looking for a new machine. You can find yours on Amazon Vicks Easyfill Cool Mist Humidifier

Annies Creamy Tomato & bunny pasta soup!

Hey guys!!!!

We got to try the Annie's Creamy tomato and bunny pasta soup in our Influesnter voxbox! I have to tell you about it because it was good! The texture was amazing. Not too think or too thin like some other brands we've tried. The bunnies are nice and firm but not undercooked. I was pretty impressed with the easy open box and pouring left no mess!!!

To get my kids to enjoy it I had to add some Annie's cheddar bunny crackers and cheese. When I did that they tried it and liked it. My kids aren't big tomato soup fans. I've tried tomato soup and grilled cheese sandwiches many times. I wasn't expecting my 6 year old to say "yummmmm" but he did! My 3 year old even at all the bunnies and didnt complain. The only thing I wish is that they added more bunny pasta.

If you'd like to try any of Annie's products or see where you find them check out their website. We love the bunny crackers and mac & cheese. Im happy we can add soup to our list of loves!

Thanks again influesnter and Annie's for letting us try this soup out. Even though we were sent this item to review these opinions are my own.

Incredible Hulk Costumes

My son has been obsessed with the avengers for the past few years. We've been through every character but this month he loves the Hulk. After watching the avengers movie for the millionth time he asked if we could look at costumes for Halloween. Yes I realize its July but he REALLY wanted to look for the perfect costume. After looking over a few costumes we decided on this one. This costume comes in adult and children sizes. Fun for all avenger fans no matter the age! My sons in a size small (4-6). The measurements are right on track and fits him like I expected. You can see its a little long in the arms and legs but still fits if you roll them up a little and tuck under not over. Im very happy that the size charts are pretty accurate. The costume includes the mask and muscle padded jumpsuit.

The mask is really detailed and made of a thick plastic. Im not worried about this one cracking with regular wear. There is eye spaces and they fit perfectly around my sons eyes. He had no trouble running around with this mask on. You can also see the two holes for he nose and there is a small section for the mouth. The mask is held on my an adjustable elastic bad. 

In the photo above you can see him running and having a blast in his hulk costume. He really wants to order more Avengers costumes and after seeing the detail in the mask and jumpsuit Im not opposed! The sewing around the muscles and the padding is done really nicely. The costume looks like its going to hold up over time. After hearing that Age of Ultron is coming out May 1, 2015 this costume is going to need to last. He is going to want to wear it to the theater that day!

The back of the costume is held together by three velcro buttons and is pretty basic. Very easy to get in and out of for potty breaks. Also very easy to clean! Just hand wash in cold water and line dry the jumpsuit. For the mask warm water and dish soap should do the trick. I like that the padding is only in the arms and chest area. Allows him to still fit in the car without hassle. Its not bulky so he's not messing with it and uncomfortable. All in all Im very impressed with this costume and happy we were able to add it to our collection.

Maybe someday By Colleen Hoover

I've been debating on whether or not I wanted to dive into doing book reviews. However this book is just one of those books I have to tell everyone about! So to start off my book reviews is Maybe Someday By Colleen Hoover!

Buy on kindle
Buy on Barnes and Noble

I first heard about Colleen when someone suggest I pick up Hopeless. Once I read it I was a HUGE Colleen fan. So naturally when Maybe Someday came out I didn't even blink. I ran out bought the book and really had no true idea what it was about. I knew there was music somehow in the book but really didn't GET it until I started reading.

At twenty-two years old, Sydney is enjoying a great life: She’s in college, working a steady job, in love with her wonderful boyfriend, Hunter, and rooming with her best friend, Tori. But everything changes when she discovers that Hunter is cheating on her—and she’s forced to decide what her next move should be.Soon, Sydney finds herself captivated by her mysterious and attractive neighbor, Ridge. She can't take her eyes off him or stop listening to the passionate way he plays his guitar every evening out on his balcony. And there’s something about Sydney that Ridge can’t ignore, either. They soon find themselves needing each other in more ways than one.

The story does deal with cheating and feelings for another person outside of the current relationship. Now Im not a big fan of triangle relationship stories but Colleen pulled this one together nicely. The music in this book OH MY HEAVEN! Being able to listen as Ridge and Sydney create the songs was the best reading experience I've had in a long time. If you listen to the songs before they just don't make sense but after you get it. 

Colleen makes you feel all kinds of emotions in her books. This one is no different. You really connect with Ridge and Sydney. You know they both have the best intentions but sometimes life gets in the way. I don't want to say too much about the book in fear of ruining it for you! 

My advice grab the book, grab the CD or purchase it on itunes and sit back and enjoy. The way Griffin and Colleen worked together to make this unique story come to life is just breath taking. You wont regret reading this one I promise you that much.

Realistic Boys Costume: Police Officer

       This year my son decided to be a police officer. He was so excited when we found this adorable costume on costume discounters. This website has a lot of costumes for all ages so you're bound to find something. This costume comes with a whistle, badge for the shirt, hat and belt that holds handcuffs, cell phone & baton. My son is 4 so we bought the size small. The length is long and fits within the size chart guide. He can keeps this in the dress up bin for a few years. So whether your child is short like mine or on the taller side this costume will work out! He's 38 inches tall and I had to roll the sleeves and pants a bit but the costume looks great! Its big enough to add a layer under it but not so big its going to swallow him.

The back of the costume is pretty basic but they do have a cute pocket on the bottom portion. You cant really see the baton from the front but you can see if from the back. Sadly this picture its hard to really see it.

 The right side has an adorable patch and you can see the shoulder buttons at the top. This side holds the handcuffs, which come with little keys!

 The left side has the badge, patch and you can get a better look at the baton here. Its plastic so you dont have to worry about your kids using it and hurting the furniture or each other. I also want to mention the hat fits my sons head perfect. Still has room to grow but could go tighter if your child's head is a bit smaller.

My son is counting down the days to halloween and can't wait to put this on. I highly suggest this costume for anyone with little boys. Its going to be a great addition to our dress up bin and I cant wait to see the little stories they come up with when wearing this costume. Costume discounters has a lot of little boy costumes that Im excited to add to our wish list. They're well made, authentic and shipping is extremely fast. I got my package within 5 days of ordering which is impressive!

Olay Fresh Effects

Today Im talking about the olay fresh effects tinted moisturizer bb cream. Im an olay brand lover so I was pretty excited to see this in my voxbox.

The color I was sent was fair to light. The down side to this is they only have two shades. Fair to light and light to medium. I find the this shade does ok but feels like it may be too light for my face. Thats my biggest problem with tinted moisturizers its hard to find your perfect match.

This is a before and after. You can see it knocked out my redness but if you have pimples forget about it. You're going to need a good concealer and probably a good powder if you get oily. After I added concealer and powder I found the coverage to be better. Since its a tinted moisturizer you cant expect awesome coverage. Its very moisturizing but can feel a bit greasy if you add too much.

This product is supposed to be an all in one product. 

• Refreshes skin instantly
• Brightens for a radiant glow
• Evens tone with a splash of sheer color
• Hydrates for 24 hours
• Smoothes for softer feeling skin 
• Protects against UV damage with SPF 15 

After reading that olay hit the nail on the head. Its a sheer color meaning dont expect crazy coverage. Comparing this to a foundation isnt right because they're too different products. If all you need is a very light coverage to cover light redness I say go for it. All in all I will be wearing this on my breakout free days. Will be adding concealer to my under eye area and adding powder because I get oily in the summer. This is great for my in a hurry days and Im happy to add olay fresh effects bb cream to my makeup collection! 

You can purchase this item at the following places. 

I got this item in my voxbox from influenster. This is my 100% honest opinion and Im not being paid for this review. 

Sinfulshine Gel tech!

Nail polish and I have a love hate relationship. I love to paint my nails but hate how fast it comes off or chips on me. I have such a hard time finding brands that make it worth my while to even bother painting my nails.

I was pretty excited to see sinful Shine Gel tech nail polish in my sun voxbox. I've wanted to try sinfulshine but like I said I gave up on nail polish! The color I have above is yours truly. Pretty pink color that matches the bottle with two think coats. I skipped the top coat to see how long it would last. To my surprise it took three days before I noticed any chipping! The nail polish itself is a nice consistency. Not runny or thin but not super thick and streaky either. 

This nail polish is only available at walgreens and for a limited time! Im so bummed its not staying because this stuff really works! So you better believe Im heading to get a few bottles asap!

Got this from influenster in my voxbox. These are my honest opinions and Im not being paid for this review!
