Cottonelle Toilet paper and flushing wipes might seem like a boring thing to review, but to a pregnant mother of a toddler and preschooler it is important. In the past 9 months, the bathroom has come to be one of my main living spaces. If you have ever been pregnant or been a mom of a potty trained preschooler,you know exactly why these products were the best things for me to sample.
I was extremely excited to tell my son about the awesome flushable wipes I received. As soon as he saw the product above the toilet, he asked what that box was. I told him that they were “Wipes for big boys”! He was so excited that I had finally gotten something he could try. I would say for a preschooler he has to be Cottonelle’s biggest and youngest fan. This product made it so easy for my son to stay fresh and clean after doing his duty on the toilet. The wipes are very durable and flushable which makes it #toddlerapproved and #momapproved. I also loved that they offered a small portable pack for me to put in my purse. This helped prevent messy accidents on the go.
The Clean Care toilet paper they sent had to be my favorite. No one like to wipe their butt with paper thin, sandpaper like toilet paper. I would have to say when I think of toilet paper. I want it to be fluffy, durable, and soft. Cottonelle Clean care toilet paper was all that and more. I loved how soft it was and the fact that is was durable. I would recommend both of these products to any moms or anyone that likes feeling fresh and clean after using the bathroom.
I have been trying to make some time to do some reviews of items that I received from the Holiday VoxBox. All of the products that I received are awesome, but my favorite product is the lip gloss. The lip gloss is made from NYC New York and is technically a lip shine. I have used this product every day since I have received it. I wish that I had pros and cons that I could share with my readers, but thus far I have only pros. The best part of this product is that you can wear it by itself or wear it on top of a lipstick. Overall the shine lasts for hours on end and really makes your lips pop. I attached a picture of myself using it by itself. It is a perfect lip shine for any complexion. It helps spice up any look.
If anyone is looking for a perfect solution that will not break the bank, but will do the job above and beyond, I would say NYC New York Color Liquid Lipshine is the way to go.
I don’t know if it was just me or if other blogger/testers had the same issue. Well, it really isn’t an issue because I love being able to test and review different products. This Christmas I felt like I was overloaded with amazing products to test from BZZAGENT, Influenster, and Smiley360. The only downfall of having a newborn is that I have had zero to no time to blog or even share any of the awesome stuff I received. I am going to try and share a few posts with some pictures of all the cool products that I have received.
My favorite thing that I received this Christmas was my Holiday VoxBox. If you don’t know what a Voxbox is , I will be happy to fill you in. Influenster is a word of mouth company that sends testers cool boxes jam-packed with things to test that are called Voxbox’s. I had the pleasure of getting their Holiday one which had an immense amount of goodies in it. It came with NYC Nude Lip gloss, Quaker Oatmeal Real Melodies sample, Goody Quikstyle Brush, Kiss Nail Dress, Eboost Energy sample, and Sole Society coupon.
I just came across this awesome blog. I am posting from my Iphone at the moment so cannot link yet to the other mommy blog. In the blog she was going over a couple different websites that offer sample boxes each month for a subscription cost. I think the idea is great for makeup/beauty fanatics such as myself to try out a sample of high end products before purchasing the real deal. Seems like something that would interest many moms that are on a budget by trying new products.

The other night at our Mommy Blogger dinner, someone asked me about the bright blue nail polish I was wearing.
I explained that I had gotten it in my monthly BirchBox, which led to lots of questions about the service. I figured I would share this info on the blog, in case there were others out there who did not know about this amazing service!
For only $10 a month, you get hand-picked beauty and lifestyle samples delivered to your door. I love playing around with beauty supplies, but I hate spending money without knowing whether or not I’ll like the product. But BirchBox solves that problem! You get to test the latest products without having to pay the full price. I NEVER splurge on beauty supplies, so I figure that if I spend only $10 a month and get to sample a bunch of high-end beauty…

The newest trend in the mommy world is definitely www.pinterest.com. This website is beyond addicting and will occupy all of your time if you let it. So many mothers/women have been consumed by this website. I find my nights have been consumed with re-pinning items or drooling over the amazing recipes that I find here.
Any women that has been on this website gets consumed or overwhelmed with the amount of ideas and DIY projects that it has. I find that I have saved a lot of time, by following some of the pins that I have found on here. I not only have saved time, but money because there are pins that are full of information and tips/tricks.
Also, since I don’t necessarily have amazing cooking skills. I appreciate seeing all the shared recipes. I find it handy to be able to see what works best for those who struggle like me with making a yummy dinner, but still having enough time to manage everything else in the house.
Pinterest is definitely something that I would recommend to anyone.
Being a mother of an active three year old is a very tough feat. I would say one of the most important things that I have learned in the three years is something that is necessary for any new mom to know. It is extremely important that you use the correct product to remove stains from your children’s or spouses clothing. I don’t know about other mothers, but clothes these days are getting more expensive , but have have less quality and durability to them. I found out very quickly that sometimes it is worth it to invest in the quality detergents vs. the generic detergents. The quality detergents helped to save the color and quality of some of the cheapest quality clothes by removing the hardest stains. Tide Vivid White+Bright helps to make the whitest clothes white without having to use bleach and also helps to maintain the vibrant colors of colored clothing while removing stains.
I stumbled upon this awesome coupon on www.vocalpoint.com and wanted to share it with my readers because this is actually a product that I use and it works fantastically. The link for the coupon is here :http://t.co/WnYacs29.
I recently just joined a brand new website called www.influenster.com. This website puts together a strong community of different people from different demographics and ways of life to share their opinions on particular brands and products. Not only do you get to share your opinions, but in certain instances they will select certain subscribers to actually participate in trailing different products. The selection they make is based on your Influenster status, your social interaction on the website ,and on other social media websites. Like I mentioned previously, I am brand new to this website and will give a better overview of the website as soon as I divulge into it a little bit more. I will be writing a follow-up review that shows my own unique opinion of the website. If you would like to be referred to this website please leave a comment with your email address and I will gladly send you a referral link.
I can not express how excited I am to me a part of a thriving company that helps bring advertising to another level. I have been a BZZagent for over 2 years. BZZagent (www.bzzagent.com) is a Word-Of-Mouth Advertising company. They help small and large companies advertise through word of mouth. This means that they allow their members to sample the products and then tell their friends and family.
I was privileged enough to be able to sample the Chap stick By Maybelline called BABY LIPS and the new LOTS OF LASHES Mascara. I not much of a mascara person so I made a pact that I would attempt to wear it everyday. This mascara is awesome. It is not clumpy at all and it makes my lashes look long and pronounced. If you are in the market for a new mascara I would definitely recommend this.
Having soft lips is one of my addictions. I feel like I have so many different types of chap sticks and lip glosses. It is actually pretty crazy, but I enjoy having soft glossy lips. The Baby Lips chap stick is seriously a long lasting solution. It keeps your lips soft for hours on end. It is not the type of chap stick that you have to keep reapplying. Definitely a great long lasting solution.
I was recently introduced to an awesome website through BzzAgent.com. The website is based on the InStyle Magazine. On this website they have trendy perfume, handbags, accessories, sunglasses,etc. I absolutely adore the way the site is laid out. It is laid out in a way that can be easily navigated around. I love that they bring aspects of the InStyle magazine to the website itself. I also love that they have awesome deals and cheap prices on name brands such as Marc Jacobs, Dior, Chanel, etc. I would suggest this site to any trend setters out there. So if you know anyone that is looking for great deals on name brands don’t look any further than StyleFind.com.
I recently received a package from BZZagent. BzzAgent is a great website that promotes word of mouth marketing. I have been a member for this site for over a year and a half.Whenever I receive one of these packages from Bzzagent it makes me excited to figure out what is inside. Most of the time, I have an idea of what they are going to be sending me.
In this package, I received 2 sticks of Covergirl Lip Perfection Lipstick. I received two different colors one was Divine, which is similar to a hot pink, and Hypnotic, which is similar to a nude/brownish color. The hot pink was a tad to bright for my taste. I am not into flashy make up at all, but the Hypnotic color was my absolute favorite. This shade is a very natural shade for me so it is easy for me to use it for everyday wear. I love pairing it with some lip gloss when I go out. It dresses up the color of the lipstick just a little.
Not only is the shade of this lipstick phenomenal , but the lipstick is long-lasting. It lasts for over 8 hours without having to be reapplied. I would recommend this lipstick to anyone who is looking for a long wearing vibrant lipstick.
