Not Your Mother's Clean Freak (Influenster Violet Voxbox)

Not Your Mother's Clean Freak (Influenster Violet Voxbox)

I was so happy to see this product in my Violet Voxbox. I have previously tried a Not Your Mother Product, but this time it was in the hair spray collection. I loved that so I had great expectations about their dry shampoo as well. 

I am happy to report, that I loved their dry shampoo as well. I have not come across a product from The Not Your Mother's Hair Collection that I haven't loved from the start. This product has a regular retail value of about $6 but I was given the opportunity to review and try this product free. All opinions are my own, I am just highlighting the product for my viewers to see and possibly try for themselves. 

The product itself, is so easy to use. All you have to do is spray the product on your roots and work it through with your fingers or a fine comb, couldn't be simpler, and it takes so much less time than washing. Especially when you add in the drying time.

Free W/ Survey Cash/Sywr Points

Both of these Games were on sale for just $2.50!
It was only $3.67 After My Shop Your Way Reward Points were taken off the order
I then used Paypal Survey Cash to cost me nothing!!!!

Montagne Jeunesse Face Masks (Influenster Violet VoxBox)

I absolutely adore these face masks, so when I saw a mask that I actually hadn't tried yet, you can imagine my excitement. I was so thrilled that I ended up using the mask pictured above the same night that I received my Violet VoxBox.

I love that these masks revitalize my skin at such an affordable price (Regular Retail $1.99-2.99) but many beauty retailers (Ulta, Walgreens, Etc.) have these on sale throughout the year. As a matter of fact, I stocked up at Ulta this past weekend during their Stocking Stuffer sale when they were 5/$5. I ended up buying at least $25 worth. 

My favorites so far are the Fruit Smoothie face masks and the face peels. I am so pleased to be able to review a product that I have loved for awhile so I can highlight a great company to my readers. I would like to thank the people at Influenster & Montagne Jeunesse for putting such a great product in our Violet VoxBox.


I received this product for free for testing purposes courtesy of Influenster.

Goodies I scored using Kroger's Double up to $1

Thanks BzzAgent and Kroger for the delicious package! I picked up some Garlic Bread, Shrimp Lo Mein Skillet Meal and Bacon Salad! It had a retail value of over $11, and I made it this past week. The Garlic Bread was to die for, and it is honestly the best Garlic bread that I have ever had, and definitely switching to this brand so thick and rich, just delicious. The salad kit was oh so easy and had all the ingredients, including the ranch in the bag and was prepped in literally under 2 minutes. Same thing with the Shrimp Lo Mein, I was able to prep and have it on the table in under 30 minutes, dinner in 30 minutes in this household, is never accomplished, but now it can be thanks to Kroger Skillet meals, salads, and Garlic bread.

I was happy to be able to try this product since I have always wondered how well a whipped foundation would work. When I joined this campaign all the lighter shades were taken so I opted for the one left that was the lightest available. I was pleasantly surprised that while this is much darker than my tone it blends quite well if you work it in enough it will blend to pretty much any skin tone.

Comforts For Baby BzzAgent Package

Hey Guys! I have a great new line of products to tell you about today! The line is Kroger's Comforts for Baby! This line is available at most Kroger's and Kroger Branded stores. I will say that in my market district I had to go to the larger Kroger Store to find the Bibs, so if you are looking for a certain item you may have to try the larger store in your market. 

Anyways, BzzAgent and Kroger put together this wonderful little envelope of coupons and such and sent it to me. This envelope had the following in it;

1 FPC For Shampoo
1 FPC For Body Lotion
1 FPC For Diapers or Training Pants
1 FPC For Wipes
1 FPC For Bibs
Lots of Cents Off Coupons

So naturally I headed to Kroger the same day to redeem them. What can I say, I get giddy trying new items and over things that I can review for free. First off, I was shocked at how low the prices were on the items, Lotions and Shampoos were under $1.80-$2.00, and once I had used them I realized that they were as good as the name brand competitors (at least in my opinion). The Wipes and Diapers worked fantastic for us to and they were a fraction, and I mean a fraction of the price, we had no blow out and no problems with these products. Finally the set of bibs-- which are just too cute-- You can see in picture 2-- the first bib in the set, which is an adorable little pirate monkey that is saying Ahoy, I mean can it get any cuter???? I don't think so. 

As you can tell I was so very pleased with this line and it is something that I keep recommending to friends and family who this line is applicable to. Comforts for baby is a great line for getting gifts for Baby Showers or just buying for your own baby. Just wanted to say thanks again to Kroger and BzzAgent for allowing me the opportunity to try another new product! 
I received this product complimentary to test through Bzz Agent all opinions are my own.

My Buitoni Bzz Agent Package+ Haul from Grocery Store when Redeeming the Buitoni Coupon!

 Bzz Agent And Buitoni Provided a great package! 
1 FPC For Any Buitoni Product
4 $1.50 Off Any Buitoni Coupons (Already handed out)
Since I had to go to the store to redeem the Buitoni coupon I figured I may as well go to Kroger. Especially since I was a part of their Bzz Campaign featuring Baby Products, plus I love that Kroger Doubles up to $1 here!!!! 

So, I ran into Kroger, Got My Buitoni--Crab Ravioli, and then I picked up the rest pictured for under $2-- I actually just paid $.98 apiece of the Jugs of Tradewinds Teas, the rest were completely free through Kroger's Free Product Friday Coupon Downloads. So I saved over $20 on this shopping trip. 

Back to my Buitoni-- It was $4.79 for the Crab Ravioli, and I was hoping that it would be delicious. I decided to make it this past week and it was amazing. I didn't actually think that it would be as good as I had planned, but it was and it actually exceeded my expectations (If only I hadn't given away all those coupons....) :) I thought for the price, if you are looking for a meal for a couple than this would be completely worth it. I was pleased that I got to try it for free through Bzz Agent, since I had always wondered how it tasted and how to actually cook the product but prior to getting on this Bzz Campaign I had only ever just heard of Buitoni-- never tried it. Well, I can say that I will definitely be trying the multiple varieties from now on since I loved the Crab Ravioli variety so much. 

I received this product complimentary to test through Bzz Agent all opinions are my own.

The Allstate Foundation’s Purple Purse Campaign

Hi Guys, I have something great to share with you all-- And a way that all my readers can help too! :) 

As part of Domestic Violence Awareness Month in October, Purple Purse, The Allstate Foundation’s symbol for domestic violence, proudly represents a woman’s way to escape the cycle of abuse by gaining financial independence.  Now in its third year, The Allstate Foundation’s Purple Purse campaign has pledged to donate up to $350,000 to the YWCA for programs designed at assisting survivors of domestic violence and other women in need.
 As many know, domestic violence affects 1 in 4 woman in their lifetime, more than Ovarian, Breast and Lung cancer COMBINED. 
 While it may be a hard topic to talk about, it is a topic that NEEDS to be talked about. We need to share support and help those and programs that deal with Domestic Violence. Generally speaking financial problems are one of the main reasons people will stay in an abusive relationship.....
  • For every purple purse passed through the end of October, The Allstate Foundation will donate $5 to YWCA. We’ll give up to $350,000 for programs aimed to help domestic violence survivors and stop the cycle of abuse.
  • Taking action against domestic violence is simple - Purple Purse: Pass It On.
    o   1,300 purple purses filled with domestic violence information and facts will be distributed throughout the U.S. Each purse has a goal of being passed between family, friends, community leaders, celebrities, media, and Allstate employees and agents sparking important conversations and raising awareness. The Allstate Foundation will donate $5 each time a purse is passed and checked-in at PurplePurse.com.

    o   Visit PurplePurse.com to follow the purple purses on their journey around the country, track the YWCA’s progress toward their goal to earn $350,000 from The Allstate Foundation and get tips to help you start talking about domestic violence. 

    If you don’t get your hands on one of the purple purses that are being passed around the country, you can still help by logging onto Facebook.com/PurplePurse and sharing a virtual purple purse. (Our Virtual Purse is Listed above Code:0030)

    Thanks for all your help guys! This is a great way to raise some much needed funds for those in domestic abuse situations and it is completely free! Be sure to tell friends and pass our virtual purse around so we can see how far it travels! Can't wait to see how far it goes! Thanks again! 

This post is part of a sponsored campaign with The Allstate Foundation and MomSelect. All thoughts and opinions are my own.

Lunchables Jr, Sampling Experience Provided by Crowdtap & Lunchables!

 The Party Pack & Instructions (1 Lunchable Jr. Pack Not Pictured...)
 What Ants On A Log, Lunchables Jr. Looks Like, Answer: YUMMY!
 Sometimes, we just have too much fun playing with our delicious food... Tic Tac Toe, Anyone?
And You Can't forget to make funny faces!

We had a great time being one of the first groups to try out Lunchables Jr. I really enjoyed many things about this product, but my favorites are the fact that none of the packs are really messy snacks, they are super portable, just throw one in your purse and you are good to go, and they are a conversation starter. Many people know about Lunchables from the fact that they are and have been a lunch staple for many years. Many people however, haven't heard of Lunchables Jr., and that's where I come in and the 999 others who got to try this product, we talk about it to family, friends, readers of our blog sites and such and then, by the power of WOM (word of mouth) marketing the news travels on and on. While not all of my readers may mention it to another, a few may, and the word travels just like that.

I wanted to say thanks again to Crowdtap and Lunchables for allowing my family and I the opportunity to try such a new product, we will definitely be buying more when it is available in our area.
