Dr. Scholl's® For Her High Heel Insoles

I have been know to avoid wearing heals because I can't stand they way the make my feet hurt. Thanks to Influenster for sending me these Dr. Scholls for Her High Heel Insoles to give a try (complimentary at that!).

So I broke out my favorite Madden summer heals....
I bought these last year when I absolutely fell in love with them! They are cute and funky. We planned a girls night out and on came my Maddens, equipped with my Dr. Scholl's For Her High Heel Insoles.

OMG! I love this insoles! They are soft and cushy and have a nice little bit of arch support which really helps keep my feet from hurting. They fit into any size or style shoe without showing. And off to the local pub we went...
Spent a few hours dancing to a cool live a band and had a few drinks and by the end of the night my feet were still happy....As was I
Anyone who wears heels on a daily basis or even for just a fun night out, should add Dr. Scholl's For Her High Heel Insoles to every pair of heels they own! Run on out to Walmart and pick up a pair for just $7.97. It's well worth it to keep your feet happy.

Olay Fresh Effects {BB Cream!}.


I am a makeup virgin...well sort of. I don't use a whole lot of makeup, really never have. I sort of cringe at all the time it takes to get all put together. But when I was sent this Olay FreshEffects BB cream to try out from Influenster I was both hesitant and ecstatic.
I have never used a BB cream before. I have heard a lot about them, but never bought one, or tried one. I knew it had to be good since when I opened my voxbox in front of my friend she about stole it right out of my hands! (and is still begging me to give it to her!) 


So here goes....This is my before BB cream picture. I hate my face. It has a lot of blemishes (and I feel it is just too round, which no BB cream can fix LOL).

And here is my after...Using the Olay FreshEffects BB cream and a some eye makeup (Covergirl of course).
I am loving this Olay BB Cream. It is so light and has just enough tint to it to cover all those pesky blemishes. I received the "fair to light" BB cream because that is how my skin is (unless I am in the sun a lot). I generally use a foundation, but with the heat it is just too much. So this was a great addition to my make up bag. The best part of the Olay FreshEffects BB cream is that is has SPF 15! So not only do I get a nice light coverage, but I get the added benefit of sun protection.
You can pick up your own Olay FreshEffects BB cream at Walmart for just $10.97. A great value since you are getting a light cover up and sun protection in one!

Goody Ouchless Ribbon Elastics

It has taken me years to finally let my hair grow out. I have always loved long hair but for many years just didn't want the hassle of having it. I now have a love/hate relationship with my long hair.  I love it because there is so much more I can do with it now that it's long. I hate it because when it is 100 degrees outside it makes me HOT.



 This is me with long hair. Now that summer has hit, 90 percent of the time my hair is up in some sort of mess bun or pony tail. I just can't tolerate it on my neck all the time. I, as I am sure most women, am always looking for a good hair tie that will not pull my hair out of my head. I have tried every time of hair tie there is on the market and none of them can accomplish keeping my hair up and not killing me when I pull it out.
Goody's new Ouchless Ribbon Elastics are great. They are flat, unlike many brands on the market and they don't have that little glue spot or metal bracket holding them together. As you can see that have a nice little knot in them. Now I know what your thinking "wont that knot pull apart?" I have worn these elastics for the last couple of weeks, pretty much every day, and have not had one problem with them. My daughter, who is know to break hair ties, is also wearing them and using them as bracelets and pulling on the constantly and they still haven't come apart.
(Good golly please ignore that awful ignore that awful picture of my lol) As you can see we both have a ton of hair to keep under control. I am constantly fighting with her to keep hers out of her face, but she hates hair ties because they hurt her. She has fallen in love with these Goody's Ouchless Ribbon Elastic. She can now tolerate having her hair pulled up. And she loves all the colors they come in.
These ribbon elastics are a must for every girls hair supply bucket! You can find that at most of your big box stores and they only cost around $3.97 (at Walmart).

My new summer fun from Influenster!

               WOO HOO look what I finally got the other day!!!
I was so excited when my hubby said that my Sunkissed VoxBox had arrived at our old address, I immediately made him send it up to me here in New York. This is my first VoxBox from Influenster so I am very, very excited about it. It has some great summer items in it for me to give a try.
Want a quick rundown of what was in the Sunkissed VoxBox??? Here goes....(I will be doing individual post on each item thru the next few weeks)

Sinfulshine With Gel Tech nail polish.
In my house we can never have enough or too much nail polish. My daughter is a nail polish FREAK (literally have to buy a new color ever time we shop!) I received this really awesome pink/fuscia color called ROYAL FLUSH. I will be changing my nail colors tonight to give it a try :)

Olay Fresheffects BB cream
I have never used a BB cream before so I am looking forward to giving this one a try. I must say my best friend was with me when I opened my Influenster box and she tried to steal this item away from me!
Dr. Scholl's For Her High Heel Insoles
I love heels. I love the way the look anyways. But I hate that my feet hurt so bad afterwards. So I am really excited to put these babies in my favorite pair of heels and head out for a night on the town.
Goody Ouchless hair ties
(My lovely daughter has already take 2 of these) My daughter and I both have pretty long hair so we are always looking for the next best hair tie. I wear my hair up about 90% of the time, and I hate nothing more than to have my hair tie pull my hair out of my head when I take it out. These hair ties are suppose to be "ouchless" so I am guessing they aren't going to be pulling my hair out. YAY
Watch for my future post on each of these products individually. I am looking forward to giving them each a try!
