I wrote a whole, introspective post and wordpress deleted it. Now, all my wisdom is gone. Spent.
This month has flown, the past year moved even faster. Mike and I celebrated our one year wedding anniversary a few weeks ago and the magnitude of things that have changed in that year is staggering. It just really goes to show that there is so much outside of our control and change happens, good and bad. All we can control, is how good of a person we are, how we live, how we work and how we do our part to carve our little place in this crazy world. Sometimes you need to cry, wig out, end friendships or relationships, stick up for yourself, travel a lot, and find your own brand of inner peace. The older we get, the more the protective veil of innocence is sliced away shred by shred, and at the end, with our wisdom and knowledge that comes with adulthood, we are left with gauzy tatters of blissful ignorance. That ignorance can’t come back, but the moments of youthful wonderment can. And should. We just have to work harder to find them, notice them and make them more frequent.
I was able to participate in the 2012 Love VoxBox program through Influenster and I was more than happy to so! As usual, the box was stuffed with amazing goodies I was happy to try. I was excited too that there was beauty products mixed in with a few other treats, chocolate and tea anyone??
The Love VoxBox contained the following items:
*A Gillette Venus and Olay Razor
*Kiss Nail Dress nail stickers
*Stash Tea Herbal Sampler
*Ghiradelli Gourmet Milk Creamy Devotion Bar
*Truvia Natural Sweetner
The Gillette Venus and Olay Razor was by far my favorite product out of the Love VoxBox. The Venus line has been good to my skin and it’s the only brand of razor i can use. I was also happy to discover Stash Tea through Influenster. Each herbal tea was excellent.

This song just came on my Pandora Bat For Lashes station, best station ever by the way, and I had to post it. Love it. It’s so awesome finding new older music.
I’m tired. Tired of a lot. Inadvertent verbal slaps, pretentious narratives, seeing good people hurt by cutting remarks made by people unhappy with themselves and people whose fabricated lies mask their own reality. I’m tired. I’m going to San Diego next week and I cannot wait to get away. First trip to California and even though it’s for work, I’m looking forward to shedding the film of negativity that seems to be clinging to me, absorbed from those around me and things unseen. So tonight I’m going to wallow in a bottle of Robert Mondavi, take a seasalt bath, read magazines and watch crime shows. I am tired after all.
I’m not a big nail girl, I usually end up with chips two days after I apply any polish and then I’m often too lazy or too busy to touch it up so I walk around with chipped polish. As a result, I usually have naked, short nails. It’s much easier for my lifestyle and my temperament. So trying the KISS Nail Dress that I was sent through Influenster was for sure a must try. The KISS Nail Dress is super easy to apply, I was sent a hot pink Zebra pattern with silver rhinestones and they were super easy to apply to my nails. After filing, the file is provided, the Nail Dresses looked amazing. I did think that because my nails are short, the product wasn’t used to its best potential. I also wish I would have used it as an accent to polish rather than a full wrap because it mildly made me wig out. Why you ask? The full wrap made me super paranoid that I was going to run my fingers through my hair at an event and then come home with a bit of Nail Dress stuck in my hair when I looked in the mirror. I think, for me personally and my lifestyle, Nail Dress should be used on my toes or cut up as an accent and I’m more than happy to try both ways.
Each package contains 28 strips and are available at major drugstores and retailer nationwide. And at around $6.99 it serious;y beats running out to get an emergency manicure at a salon around $30.00. Summer is coming and with the simplicity in cutting the strips in order to make super fun designs on your nails is an awesome option to have.
