Something different.

This post is something different.
This post is about Influenster.
Influenster is is a free -to-join community of invited trendsetters who live to give opinions of products and experiences. Influenster creates links between brands and members to reward participation and influence future products.

Basically what I did (I signed up a long while ago).
I answered the badges that applied to me. Such as, Fashionista, Beauty Queen, Mother Bear, Bow-Wow, and so on. They have multiple badges that you get to pick and basically answer about. Then when a VoxBox (more about that later) applies to you, they send you a FREE box full of goodies and you basically give your true feedback. You can also do the challenges, and do extra feedback by doing a blog post (like so), a Youtube video, Facebook post,  and etc. 

So, this month I got the Sunkissed VoxBox.
(it isn't a monthly box subscription, Influenster will decide when you get a box.)

How my box was shipped.

The contents of my box.

Dr. Scholl's For Her
Retails for $10.99

I don't usually wear high heals but I will in October for a Formal Ball so these will most definitely come in handy! 

Olay Fresh Effects (BB Cream) Skin Perfecting Tinted Moisturizer with SPF 15
Retails for $12.99

I use Smashbox Camera Ready for my BB Cream but am open to try new ones. I was weary about the shade (Light to Medium) because I already have my summer tan going on now, but it seems to blend nicely. It has a very feminine scent. 

SinfulShine with Gel Tech
Retails for $2.99

I have used Sinful Polish before but never their SinfulShine with Gel Tech. I am very excited to use this. I wish I didn't get red because that isn't necessarily a summer color to me BUT I am glad I got a color I could actually wear.  My polish came in the color Devious (a true red). I hope it is a great formula.

Last but not least.
Goody Ouchless Ribbon Elastics
Retails $3.00-$4.99

I have used this material before but I got a roll from Micheal's and made it myself so using one premade I was excited about. I love the colors they gave me, not to bland but not to wild, just the right colors for me. 

The thing I am most excited for is the BB Cream and the Polish. I like all the products given to me and am impressed with Influesnter.

Just note:
I received these products complimentary from Influenster for testing purposes.

Until next time. . .

Ever since.

Ever since that vent I had everything has been... better.
Is that weird? I put it out into the universe mama needs a break and I've pretty much gotten one. That night of the terrible day, I had a crazy idea to turn toddlers crib into a "toddler bed" and take the side off. He wasn't for it at first but we put one of the doggies in his room and that helped *note that we never let the dogs in his room due to allergies and just dog hair* He finally got to bed at 11 (he usually goes to bed around 8,9,10 depending on when he wakes up that morning). I went in there a couple times just to assure him he is okay. The weird thing is the next day he was the most amazing kid ever. He was AWESOME to say the least. It was errand day ( I like to get stuff done in one day) therefore, we went to target, walmart, and sams. Home to drop off cold/frozen goods. Commissary, he saw daddy during his lunch, came home had lunch and napped, all while being amazing and calm and with snacks. Then we went to HEB and he was just amazing. And still he naps and sleeps better at night I feel and the weird thing is the freedom he does have to get out of bed in the morning, he waits for mommy to get him still or to tell him to come out of his room. haha. He's also had less tantrums. I don't know why or how it could be because of the bed but he's been way more "easier" since I converted his crib to a bed. 

That is it for now.

Until next time. . .
