My Influesnter Spring Fever Box

I recently received the Influenster Spring Fever Box.  I have to say I'm excited to try everything in this box.

This is what I received in my Spring Fever Box:
  • Secret Outlast Clear Gel Antiperspirant Deodorant 
  • NYC New York Color Applelicious Glossy Lip Blam 
  • Broadway Nails imPRESS Press-on Manicure 
  • Tastykake Kandy Bar Kakes 
The first thing I grabbed was the TastyKake Kandy Bar Kakes.  The cake was pretty moist and soft with peanut butter in between the cake bar.  I have to warn you though the hard shell chocolate can get messy, because it melts pretty fast when eating. I enjoyed eating every minute of it and I'm so tempted in getting a full box of this.  Also these cake bar makes a great snack for myself or for my daughter.

Also I have tried the Secret Outlast Clear Gel Antiperspirant Deodorant.  I like that it doesn't stain my clothes and that it's a clear gel that you can simply glided on easily because it's invisible solid.  I threw this in my gym bag and I love the fragrance of this.  Anyway have you tried the Spring Fever Box and what are your thoughts on receiving these items?

Ivory® 2-IN-1 Hair & Body Wash Review

Yesterday I had the opportunity to try this new Ivory® 2-IN-1 Hair & Body Wash.  I really like the idea that it's 2 in 1 cause you don't have to spend extra dollars on buying a separate body wash and shampoo. I like that it comes in just 1 bottle and also a great way to refill it in a small bottle and throw it in your gym bag for those who works out like me.  I really like the refreshing scent of this shampoo and body wash.  I can't make out the scent whether it's a floral scent, but it has a nice perfume scent that isn't overpowering at all.  This 2 in 1 is hair and body wash is pretty simple and it works perfectly well for me when I'm on a go after working out at the gym.  I'm so glad I had an opportunity to try this full size bottle through influenster.

Here's a description of what the bottle stated:
Ivory hair and body was cleans you from head to toe while leaving your hair conditioned.  It's as simple as that.

My Fashion Sense Part III

To be honest I don't really have a fashion sense at all when comes to shopping.  On my typical days I dress in my sloppy clothes that consist of a t-shirt, jeans and a hoodie.  I've been very lazy in dressing or glamoring up for myself cause my day is consist of picking up my little girl and working with kids.  I'm not sure if it's the comfortability factor that plays a role to it as I'm getting older.  I feel that the world can throw you off at times.  Society and friends can comes to role where we at times judging each others of how the way we dress and how we look. I dress up only when I'm in mood, but each day I always promise myself in dressing up more for myself.  I'm dressing up for myself, not what people or the society will think of me.  

I did some spring cleaning and try to minimize my wardrobe and try to wear what I have or mix and match some of the previous older clothes that I brought.  I recently also brought some tops and I notice that Horse prints has been very trendy and popular these days. I think horse prints are popular now after PSY created the Gangnam style song.  I also got a floral pink top for the summer.  These tops are able to mix and match from causal to a sophisticated events.  I have to admit, I've been having an itch and wanting to buy more clothes.  I always try to find an excuse or reasons of wanting to get a new items just to match with a certain look.

I find things that appeals to me more than the name brand.  I make sure that the quality is long lasting when I'm buying certain type of clothes. I used to work as a production coordinater at a fabric company.  I seen many fabrics that came into my office.  I studied and analyzed the fabric each time.  I also looks at prints/designs of how the pattern flows.

Also I rarely shop at high end brand name store.  I find things that are appealing and budget friendly to my wallet than the name itself. 

What do you look for when shopping?  Does name brand appeals to you more or the quality items appeals more to you?

Hydroxatone - AM/PM Anti-Wrinkle Complex

Another review on Hydroxatone brand called AM/PM Anti-Wrinkle Complex cream.  I couldn't resist not ordering after I test their BB cream.  I can't believe that the BB cream I tried really work wonders, so with my remaining coins that I have at I ordered this immediately.  Since I'm not getting young, I want to prevent from getting wrinkles.  Whenever I smile I see crows feet around my eyes area and certainly it's been one of my concerns.

  • Paraben Free 
  • No animal testing 
  • Fragrance Free 
  • Natural Formula
  • Helps and reduce wrinkles
  • Moderate Sun Protection Product with SPF 15
I really like the texture of this cream.  This texture felt like butter and felt smooth once it is glide onto your face.  The second bonus of this is that it's fragrance free and that it contains natural formula that doesn't irritate your skin.

Hydroxatone Anti-Aging BB Cream

I recently got this Anti-Aging BB Cream through and I want to review this BB cream.  I never heard of this brand and was very curious of trying this out.  I have only tried 3 BB creams so far and I have to say that there is this love and hate relationship with me when trying out different types of BB creams.

What I like about this Anti-Aging BB Cream: 
  • That it hides my uneven skin tone and it minimizes my imperfections. 
  • Has Broad Spectrum SPF 40 Sunscreen 
  • Could wear this alone for outdoors events and acts like a makeup or for skincare 
  • Gives you hydration 
  • Feels light weight, doesn't feel heavy at all
Here's the description of what the box says:
Hydroxotone Anti-Aging BB Cream Broad Spectrum SPF 40 is your all-in-one multi-tasking perfecting cream that hydrates, conceals, protects, reduces the look of aging, and brightens skin in just one step.

Hides uneven skin tone and minimizes the appearance of imperfections.  Works perfectly under foundation, or all on its own.  Skin looks naturally flawless.  Effortlessly perfect.  Overall more youthful.

My diet plan

I was never to keen on watching my diet from my early 20s till in my early 30s.  I eat what I want and don't really care if I gained.  Eating makes me happy, especially when I'm with a friend.  Now that I lost that circle of friends, because I have my own busy schedules and they have theirs too.  Eating wasn't much fun anymore without a company.

Unfortunately I'm not blessed with a perfect figure, I have an hour glass shape figure and it was very hard in losing weight.  I know that I have a slow metabolism.  Each new year I always tell myself to eat healthy and workout more.  Things never changed and I still procrastinated continuing eating and gaining.  My highest and heaviest was almost 138lbs being 4'11.  I also have a heavy set of breast that makes me feel conscious even more of myself.

This is my journey on losing weight and attempt on documenting my journey. I want to see that change instead of doing nothing.  Last summer my husband encouraged me to get a gym plan and found a place for me where I can jog or doing some weights.  I attempted to go to the gym at least 2 times a week.  At first it was hard I started on the treadmill running 1 miles took me 30 mins within 5 lapses.  I try to pace it up each time.  My current stat now is 17 mins 1 mile 3 lapses and I jog the whole way through.

This is me before and after from 138 lbs to 125 lbs.  I've been also watching what I eat as well.  I recently pulled out my old juicer and decided to do more juicing.

Carrot Juice 
  • 1 Pear
  • 2 Apples 
  • 1 Big Carrot
  • 1 Small Ginger 
I hope I will see more results and keep continuing my healthy journey.
