Mixing patterns–Its a beautiful thing.

I'm telling you–this is something you HAVE to get with. Men, women, kids-it looks good on everyone!

I am a huge fan of either wearing a plethora of prints–mixing stripes and florals/something edgy and dainty/gold and silver–the list goes on. It all can work-promise!

I have been asked several times for this blog post–and I was so excited! Mixing prints is one of my FAVORITE ways to spice up an outfit…and I want to share with you some of my favorite ways to do it!

Stripes and Florals

If you aren't on board with this-its time to hop on. I LOVE a good stripe/floral mix. Something about it is so classic. And notice I have 2 different stripes going on? Now I realize this might be a little much for some people, but I am ALL ABOUT several prints going on at once. This skirt came from Bliss Knox and I love it with everything I have–it comes with an amazing story too 🙂


And for all you thick girls who think you can't wear horizontal stripes–let me be the first to tell you. You are WRONG. Work 'em girl. There are certain ones that can be SO flattering. Just find a good stripe that works for you! And if you don't trust yourself, take a trusted buddy to shop and ask for help! And if not, just send me a pic and I will be happy to help 🙂

Here is another fun way to do stripes and florals–with your shoes!!!! I adore these shoes. They have a slight edge to them, but still girly with the floral print. Perfection.

Edgy and Dainty

Ok–this–I have all the heart eyes over this outfit…. Gosh I love me a good army green top–and this one. Y'all-I LOVE IT. With jeans, shorts, or even a dainty tulle skirt–it so gorgeous. You have to try it! And I am a serious believer in the tulle skirt–every lady should own one. You may feel you look slightly like a 4 year old at first–but I promise–They are timeless and classic and oh so dreamy. And you look classy-not at all like a child. You can grab them on the cheap too—I've seen them at my local Ross for $12.00!!

(This is me laughing over squirrels playing in the tree next to me… Just for your enjoyment. 🙂

Oh I also wanted to include a pic with this AWESOME clutch my boss grabbed for me at a market in India–Can you see it? I am so in love with the color…and it's big enough to hold my phone. Score.

Here is another edgy look with a super sweet feel.
This is one of my fav fall vests- I wear it over a long sleeve black tee. But I was craving wearing it now–so I broke it out and paired it with my "cupcake" skirt. That's what I feel like when I wear this skirt–a sweet lil' cupcake–its so fun! And notice–paired with pearls. Of course-my go-to necklace of choice.

Gingham and ANY PRINT possible


This is a definite favorite of mine. I love gingham. In every way possible. My mom made this skirt for me and I LOVE IT. Its a high low skirt and is so fun! Go get yourself a gingham skirt and I promise you won't look like a picnic table.


Ignore my shoes in this pic–these are my go to comfort shoes when my feet can't handle heels. But check out the stud with me…. He has 2 different gingham prints–and looks OH SO HANDSOME. Don't be afraid to mix prints!!!!

And this pic just because I have 2 gingham skirts but they have totally different feels… also–I had this headband LONG before I had this skirt- and wanted a skirt like this forever! My momma made this one too and It goes down as one of my fav skirts in all of my almost 28 years of life. (Ugh almost 30 is not a good feeling.)

This also goes down in history as one of the few times I was "matchy matchy." I hate to make everything match–but this day I felt like it was necessary. 🙂


More gingham on gingham–and a little tree branch action happening too. I made this bow tie and ADORE IT… Check out the little ham modeling it—he is such a wild man!!

Ok dolls, that's all I have for now— but you can see–mixing prints is such a good thing! I love when people tell me" I never would have put that together–but it looks great!" Or even when I get the back handed " Wow- I would NOT have put that together-but you can pull it off" comments—I take pride in it!

That just proves that I am doing what I want to do–and you should too! Dress for you–not for anyone else. Be daring! Be bold! Be wild! And It may push you out of your comfort zone a bit, but all the fun things happen out of your comfort zones. 🙂 And if you wan't help, don't hesitate to send me a pic! Follow me on Instagram at @smittenwiththree_blog and I would love to see what you put together!!!!!!

All the love dolls 💋

5 minute makeup using ONLY drugstore products

Makeup tutorials seem to be my most requested blog posts–and I love that! Problem: I can’t do videos on my blog–so I have to do it via a series of pictures-which poses quite the challenge, but I am up for it. I think. 

So I tried to whip up a 5 minute makeup routine–and I really think its pretty easy to follow. If you need any help with ANY of the steps, comment or email me! I am happy to give any insight I have. 

Once again, I am NOT–I repeat NOT a professional. I just like to play in makeup, and you all have asked to see how I do it! So here goes…

5 MINUTE MAKEUP using these tools: 

  • Foundation: Physician’s Formula CC Cream
  • Bronzer: Physician’s Formula Butter Bronzer 
  • Mascara: Maybelline ‘The Colossal Big Shot’
  • Concealer: Fit me
  • Eyeliner: Revlon Color Stay in brown
  • Eyeshadow-Maybelline Blushed Nudes 
  • Brows: e.l.f. Pomade 
  • Shadow brush: wet n’ wild 
  • Bronzer Brush: elf powder brush
  • Beauty blender: real techniques
  • Lipstick/Blush: Revlon ‘champagne on ice’ *not pictured*

Ok-on to the good stuff.  

Step 1: Foundation

I LOVE this CC cream for an easy every day foundation. It’s so simple to put on and can accommodate several skin shades. I put a little dob on the back of my hand like so ,

and use a beauty blender to apply to your face. Wet the beauty blender and pounce the the foundation all over until fully blended! 

Step 2: Concealer

I apply the concealer under my eyes in a V shape, and blend with your beauty blender.


Then if you want to get extra snazzy, apply the leftover concealer down the middle of your nose. 

Step 3: Bronzer

YALL–Bronzer is your bestie from here on out. Remember that. You will notice your whole face start to transform when you apply bronzer. For this look, I just swept a little from my cheekbones back to my hairline.  Next, sweep it around your forehead (near the hairline). I also like to do a little of my neck and Chest for a pretty glow. DISCLAIMER: Prepare to get addicted to this bronzer. It’s a drugstore bronzer, but I PROMISE YOU-it’s my fav. LOVE LOVE LOVE it. Perfect amount of glow and smells like heaven. 


Most people would probably not use a powder brush for bronzer, but this one is my fav! Its an e.l.f brush, and will run you $3.00 at Target. Score! Just make sure we are blending the bronzer out yall! 

Step 4: Eyeshadow

I kept this look super simple and only used 2 shadows—although any other time I will always tell you—EVERY TIME YOU DO EYESHADOW, USE AT LEAST 3 DIFFERENT SHADES. You get such pretty depth, and I promise–your eyes will pop! 

Today I used this color first–

And just swept it all over my lid and into the crease with my wet n’ wild brush. These are at dollar tree for $1.00 yall! And the quality is great for the price–go grab one asap! (Also-I know it will be a rough transition, but the sooner you can start using a brush for eyeshadow, the prettier your eyes will be. And the more you use them, the easier it gets! The wet n’ wild brush shown here has a little groove that forces you to hold the brush correctly as well–love that! ) 

*Yes-my pinky is jacked up. I broke it playing volleyball as a teen-never got it fixed and that stupid finger is the biggest pain in my butt now. * 

This next color  I just swept into a V-shape on the outer corners of my eyelids. Instant depth. 


Step 5: Eyeliner

I just used a brown eyeliner and lined my eyes and in the inner rims of my lower eyelid. Simple. 


Step 6: Mascara (My fav) 

If you ask me what the most important makeup item you can wear is, I will always say mascara! It will totally change your face for the better every time, and your eyes will love you for it. I just bought this mascara, and man is it awesome! I highly recommend it for some BIG ol’ lashes. Go getcha’ some. 

I roll in on the back side of my lashes, and coat til my arms hurt..ALLLL the mascara yall. COAT IT ON. 

Step 7. Blush/Lipstick

OK usually I would do blush after I bronze-but today is a little different. I used my lipstick as my blush as well! Here is the color: I love this nude color and it’s makes such a pretty cheek color as well! Just apply at the apples and blend up! Simple. 

STEP 8: Brows

Usually I would use a brush, but today just used my finger to add a little color and that’s it! 

Try ti ignore all the foundation all over my nails–I am super messy 😬


SOOOO….here is the finished product! 
Simple easy makeup that anyone can do-I promise!! Any questions? Send them my way!!! Let me know what you think dolls!!
All the love 💋

DIY Detox bath….You need it. Trust me. 

Right? We all need a little “Me time” and this was the PERFECT way for me to have a relaxing night to myself. Want one too? Well it’s about DANG TIME. Don’t feel bad. Just do it.  

My situation? Hubby is out playing basketball with his friends. Just read the kiddos their story, prayers are said, and they are sound asleep–time for momma to #chill. And I can’t even lie–today has been a pretty chill day for me all around. Did a little housework, then went and hung by the pool with a friend. Kids were great–didn’t have to chase them anywhere or deal with any arguments. My youngest stayed on the first step all day and that is pretty awesome if you ask me. Know why? Yep. Momma gets to chill OUTSIDE the pool with adult conversation. Allll the praise hands right now. 🙌🏻 🙌🏻 🙌🏻

Anyways, pretty easy day ran right into pretty fantastic night. Kids were in bed at a halfway decent time, and then was time for me! 

So have any of you all tried detox baths? I am pretty new to the concept–but better late than never right? And for all you who haven’t hopped on the detox train–well–you need to start. Like-in 20 minutes…..Maaaaybe 30-but no longer. 

This is my second detox bath and this one was a bit more enjoyable than the last one–I am going to share with you what I put in both baths so you can compare and try as you please! 

My first one was about a month ago, and all I did was put a bar of Himalayan Pink salt in the tub with me and sat about 20 minutes. ( I bought it Here but I don’t think they carry it anymore. Either way–love this website for all natural makeup! Check them out!)    But My DEAR GOSH y’all. I could hardly walk after this bath! Im telling you–I probably wouldn’t have believed it if I didn’t experience it myself, but it takes all the nastiness out of you-and you FEEL IT. 

Here are just a few of the benefits of a detox bath:

  • Relieves sore muscles
  • Relieves headaches
  • Balances pH levels
  • Draws out toxins
  • Help treat cold and flu symptoms

I did it simply because I know I do a lot of things that make me susceptible to toxins, and this is a great way to rid some of those-all the while giving me a relaxing night (or maybe just 20 minutes) and I feel so glam while doing it.. And yes people-when you have kids–little things like this are what make you feel amazing. Just go with it. 

So earlier in the day, I coated my hair in a Deep conditioner and left it on until I rinsed off after my bath. Great for my hair, and a good way to start a pamper evening. I turned the lights off, lit some candles, grabbed a magazine and SOAKED. (Ok word to the wise–choose either the candles or the magazine. No lights+reading was a little difficult—I did it anyways because I am a rebel like that…..Trust me though. Pick one. Not both.) 

Here are the ingredients I used for the perfect bath:

  • Hot tub water. HOTTTTTT
  • 1/2 cup baking soda
  • 1/2 cup apple cider vinegar
  • Dollop of coconut oil
  • Heavy handed squirt of vitamin E oil
  • 10-12 drops lavender essential oil

Now I would have included 1 cup of Epsom salts, but I didn’t have any. All I had was the little bit of my Himalayan Pink salt bar left, and threw it in the tub with me–it still did something because my muscles are relaxed! That mixed with the baking soda and vinegar must be quite the bathtub concoction, because I feel amazing now! Drained nonetheless, but fab. 

Don’t worry about smelling the vinegar either. It’s so diluted once it hits the water, you don’t smell anything other than the lavender. And if you prefer another essential oil, use it! Go with whatever tickles your fancy! 

I loved having the oils in this bath! I am a huge coconut oil fan anyways, so this was just the icing on the cake for me. Coconut oil+my ‘heavy handed squirt of vitamin e oil’ (Yeah that sounds odd and slightly awkward–but you got the point didn’t you?) left my skin feeling heavenly! I shaved my legs as the tub was draining, and didn’t even need a shave cream! Awesome!

Now I always shower after a bath because I feel slightly weird after sitting in my own filth. (Yuck-I can’t think about it too much or I gross myself out)  I also usually need to wash my hair as well, so it just works better for me! My skin is still so soft and silky smooth front the oils, even after a shower! 

Another thing–scrub the tub out when you are done. Please? Here is why: 

  1. Your dirty butt has just been on the floor-and someone else will is going to step there next. Eww.
  2. The next person to step there is going to slip if you don’t clean it up. The oil stuff is SLIPPERY! 
  3. Your tub may need cleaned anyways-here is a start. 

So this was my night in a nutshell! Bath+Blogging. Fabulous if you ask me. Now I am off to grab a snack and drink LOTS OF WATER! This is important after detoxing (just like after a massage!) because a lot of toxins have been released, and need to be flushed out! 

Now, go enjoy your bath-and see if you can make it to the couch afterward. 😉
All the love yall 💋

Free Jewelry via Rocksbox 

Everyone loves a good subscription box right?? I am a big fan of the makeup boxes (Ipsy, Birchbox) and have seen a few others I would like to subscribe to–but you know–budget 🙄.

This box isn’t the typical subscription..This one is JEWELRY. Girls–the right earrings or necklace can make or break an outfit and I am a firm believer in earrings every day. If I leave the house without them, it’s going to mess my day up-ridiculous I know-but I can’t help it. I’m naked without them! 

Now Rocksbox is a great alternative to shopping at the store–because you get 3 items and you keep them as long as you like! No overwhelming choices, and you don’t have to buy if you dont like them!

It’s Simple. Wear the items you love. Keep them. Get tired of them? Return for a new pair! Hate it from the start? Return them! Boom- New jewelry all the time and it can’t get any easier. 

I will be honest-my first box wasn’t my favorite. I was slightly devastated, and emailed the Rocksbox team. To my suprise, they said to send it back and my next box was free too! I was in shock. They proceeded to tell me that you pay PER MONTH not PER BOX.  So when you order your first box, if you hate it. Send it back! They will immediately send another. FREE. Or if you love the items but wore them all in the week and want to try a new set, send them back. It’s free! So technically, you could order as many boxes as you could possible send in the month, and they would all be free! Seriously, I am loving this setup y’all . Perfect. 

Just CLICK HERE for your first MONTH free! I highly recommend it and hope you try it out too! Now want to see what was in my box? Prepare yourselves–its fab. 

So this is the box it comes in–OMG the cutest ever right?

I love that it even comes personalized with my name! Nice touch Rocksbox. 👌🏻

Now this I LOVED. Remember how I said I didn’t really like my first box? Well I made sure to be a little more in depth with what I was looking for in my second box, and they LISTENED. I said I wanted more fringe and tassels–and fringe and tassels I got. Their customer service is spot on. 👌🏻

So now to the good stuff. Check these out. 

Can we say perfection?  They are so DANG CUTE. 

Check these babies out…..Gorge. 


 Girls–The site is extremely user friendly and ANYONE can navigate it.  Make sure to be THOROUGH in telling your stylist what you like–colors, metal choices, if you like heavy/or lighter jewelry, etc. It makes a difference!

Do you want to see them styled? Check out a few pics with them on…Man I loved these!!! So pretty! 

And these?? These..My goodness…..They were my favorite. So pretty and fun! 

(Ignore the office furniture–I snapped these at work. I wanted you to see them in real life-this is as real as it gets. ) 

But seriously.. You have to check out Rocksbox…. You will love it! Just CLICK HERE for your first box FREE! IF you decide Rocksbox isn’t for you, simply call them to cancel! No hassle. (Just cancel before your next box ships.) Easy Peasy.

One of the best Dollar Tree Finds….And It’s a MUST HAVE. 

Hey there friends!

This has been such a crazy month for me–and I am loving it! We have been keeping ourselves busy spending time with family and friends, spent the last weekend at a 3 day bible convention (so refreshing) alll the summer fun outside, party planning, our bible ministry, etc. All exciting stuff .  😬

One of the main events taking up my time this past month? Jack and Jules . Not familiar? It is our local children’s consignment that comes around twice a year…..and I LOVE it. It’s time consuming but SO WORTH IT. It’s a great way to sell your children’s gently used clothes/and to grab some great deals for your littles. (Let me know if you want a blog post on my hanging/pricing process!)

At any rate, I wanted to share one of my tried and true time savers–and this will work for anyone–especially those of us who hate to iron.

I am not going to lie, when my kids outgrow their clothes, I throw them in the bottom of the closet (sometimes they make it in the  ” I’ve outgrown It box”, sometimes they don’t.) Nonetheless, they are wrinkled. To the max. Every one of them.

That being said, I think I have found the holy grail of wrinkle reducers, and it’s cheap as dirt. Literally, maybe cheaper than dirt. ( NO joke–try potting all the plants around your house. Its pricey.)

Once again, Dollar Tree has come to the rescue. This wrinkle reducer y’all–all the praise hand emojis..Here. Let me throw one in here just for fun. 🙌🏻.. It’s bomb. Do the kids say that anymore? Someone fill me in.

Notice what it looks like here…..

Now promptly leave your house, and go grab a bottle.

It smells so fresh and clean–and it’s so simple to use! Evidently it is the off brand of Downy, which I didn’t realize existed. But I’m telling you, it can’t be much better than this.

Just spray it on your wrinkled item, and give it a pull. Pull the clothing on each side, and then top and bottom. It’s awesome! Notice the difference in this shirt.

Before 

After

Ok please don’t fault me as I forgot to spray the bottom of the shirt, ( I was so excited to share with ya people, per the usual) but isn’t the difference AMAZING????? SO MUCH EASIER than ironing.

I also am a huge fan of the “throw it back in the dryer with a wet towel” trick, but sometimes there just isn’t time, ya know? Add in the nice scent boost with it, and you have a solid champ in this wrinkle releaser.

The price point can’t be beat for the time it saves you!

Do you use a spray on wrinkle releaser like this? What is your take on it?? Let me know in the comments!!!!!

Beauty favs-  Boscia Exfoliating Peel 

Sorry gals! I know I have been MIA for a while, but I am really making an effort to spend as much of this summer as I can with my boys. Overall, I don’t consider myself a “summer person”, but this year, I just don’t know—-Maybe I am turning over a new leaf! I think I just associate Summer with terrible heat, and terrible heat with being a pregnant whale, and being a pregnant whale with NONSTOP sweating. It was miserable. I was miserable. And I know I was miserable to BE AROUND (SO sorry to all of you who had to be in the car with me and the AC on as high as possible. I know you froze. Thanks for freezing for me. Love youuuu.)  I ALSO was TERRIFIED my babies would overheat in the sun, and so I stayed out of it as much as possible. 

But now that I am not so worried about infants overheating, (or melting myself) I seem to be really enjoying Summer! I think Ifinally  understand why all these people love this season that I used to despise. That being said, the Summer heat does a number on our skin, and we need to combat some of these issues while we can! 

Now, I am not the greatest at taking care of my skin–and I really wish my skin care product shelf was more than just a shelf. (Now makeup on the other hand—-maybe I have too much?……Nah).

But for whatever reason, I find it so hard to splurge on skincare…(Kind of like we don’t want to spend the 30.00 on the blouse that will last forever, but dropping 30 bucks on dinner is a no brainer.) I know I need to start with my skin, especially since I am a huge makeup fan, but getting started is rough! 

At any rate, I decided to take the plunge and visited my local Sephora. They are used to seeing me there for makeup, and know my kids when we come in. It’s a problem, I know. But that day, I needed to see the skincare lady–new territory! 

I told the consultant I felt like my skin needed a good cleaning-something to rid my face of the build-up and dirt. I didn’t want to break the bank, but needed something decent. She directed me to the Boscia shelf. I have seen this brand several times before, but never thought too much about it. She revealed to me that this peel was exactly what I needed, and would last quite a while.  Its the Boscia “exfoliating peel gel.” It’s like a mini chemical peel! Exciting, right? She also mentioned that it would clear up these black-heads that I hate so much. Cha-Ching! 

I took it home and tried it, and no joke, it WORKED. Its kind of a weird setup if you ask me, but I can roll with it. You have to apply it to DRY skin, and rub around your face. It starts to ball up as you go, and that is how you know it’s working my friends!  

Continue to rub it around for a minute, then rinse.  Voila!  Easy peasy. 

Check out what the back says for yourself–its pretty neat!

Sorry about my awful nails–time to repaint–I know. 

My skin immediately felt better after using this, and with time, I should be able to use it less often! 

I HIGHLY recommend this product, and think you will love it too! 

What are some of your favs? Let me know if you try this one

Worst Conditioner turned something great….

So if you haven’t noticed by now, I am a shopping addict. I am here to admit it-I have a problem. And that’s the first step, right? Well, amidst all of my shopping experiences, I have learned a few things. One of those being-stop buying the conditioners at TJ Maxx, Marshalls, Ross, etc. 

EVERY TIME I get sucked in. “Whoa! This huge bottle for $2.99? Argan oil? Coconut oil? On clearance? That has to help my dried out bird’s nest hair!” Right? WRONG. 

I can’t be the only one getting pulled in here. But really, every conditioner I have tried has failed me. And it hurts….to the core. I hate to waste my money-and feel slightly betrayed when my favorite stores do me wrong. #rude

All that being said, I REFUSE to throw these bottles out. Instead, I find a new use for them! This conditioner in particular–oohhhh it smells goooood! Like coconuts. And reminds me of the beach. I love this scent!

 But does it work on your hair? Heck to the no. Awful. Terrible. It says to use twice a week…and that is so far from helpful. The only way I could SOMEWHAT get this stuff to help my ratty hair, was to slather it on this morning. Throw it in a bun. Go outside in the terrible heat. Mow the grass. And then shampoo after. 

I think leaving it in for almost 2 hours+this Tennessee heat was the only reason it worked a little bit. But, I’m sorry. If it takes mowing the grass every day to have decent hair, count me out. 

What I have learned is an amazing use for this product??? Shaving cream!!!! 

I use it to shave, and OMG the smell is decadent. My legs feel so smooth. My money isn’t totally wasted. All is well in the world. Ahh. 

This is such a great way to finish off that drugstore conditioner you HATE, but feel like you have to use since you spent your hard earned Pennies on it. Keep this in mind for any cheapie conditioners you see-hey maybe they will work for your hair. If not-you know what to do-repurpose it! 

I strongly recommend you try this in other aspects of life too! Hate your tablecloth? Make it into a skirt. (I did!) Use those mason jars around the house to hold your pretties–or drink out of them!  Give all the fun things you have around a new life! Let me know what you like to repurpose !

Beauty Favs: Body Wash and Scrub 

Hey there…Girly girl to the MAX over here. I have certain items in my beauty collection that I feel need to be shared! I plan on doing more makeup tutorials (Did you all like the first one?) and more beauty fav shares soooon.  I love doing them and hope you find them helpful too! 

I am totally in love with a certain scent at Bath and Body works. Actually-several scents. But most of them are your typical girly/sweet/fruity scents we are all drawn to when first walking in the door. But this one-it’s a game changer. 

The scent isn’t anything I would ever be drawn to-especially by the name of it. And if you asked me to smell it-or test it- My first thought would be “Ummm…no thanks. That sounds disgusting.” 

But I am telling you—this scent is super earthy ( in the best way possible) and I can’t get enough. Want to know what it is?? Of all things, Eucalyptus Spearmint. Eww. Right? No. Not at all. More like-awaken your senses and reel-you-in type scent. I wish you could smell through the internet. ( Can we go ahead and make that a thing?? I’m thinking I would end up buying every macaron on the inter-web.) 

But really, the smell is like nothing you would ever imagine-and maybe  I am crazy- but i promise it makes me feel relaxed! It comes in several items, but the body wash+body scrub are my fav! 

This bottle is huge! And the smell is phenomenal. I know- i keep saying it-annoying. But for reals y’all. AMAZING. And anything that is made to relax us? A MUST HAVE right??!!!  Check out the scrub here..

I love to use it from the neck down–Just scrub away all that dead skin and then shave+wash+whatever. Its amazing. Click the link Here to grab some for yourself. It’s worth it! 

EVEN BETTER–right now is the Bath and Body Semi-Annual sale!!!! Make sure to go by your local store for some amazing deals! You can also order online if you aren’t near one-nonetheless- It’s stock up time ladies! Deals start at $3.00 and you can’t go wrong with their lotions and body sprays. 

Another favorite? Lavender Vanilla Sleep Lotion. This scent is ah-mazing. Click the link Here to grab one for yourself. 

These are both part of BBW aromatherapy collection-and great for fixin’ what ails ya’.  

*Keep in mind, they carry a few different scents in each set, so make sure you grab the scent you like–I LOVE lavender vanilla, but NOT A FAN of  lavender chamomile. Just get the right one!!!!*

**Shoutout to the brick wall that has been in my house since we lived here-and I have never noticed. You will be seeing that wall quite a bit from here on out–get comfy with it 🙂 **

Influenster – What’s it all about?? 

So I’ve seen this company around– And have been super curious about their game. Guys–TOTALLY WORTH my snooping. Influenster has sent me some awesome products as long as:

  1. I agree to review the products honestly 
  2. I share with my favorite internet friends 🙂 

 Well, Here goes both! ( I have also shared my honest review on Instagram. Follow me Here
Y’all-to get this fun little pink box in the mail was SO EXCITING! Who doesn’t love happy mail? And even better–FREE!!! It’s an awesome set up-and I already can’t wait for my next one. In the meantime, check out the items I received here…. 

This is just the POSTCARD that came with the box! Isn’t it adorable? *Gush*

Here are all the items before I jumped in (FYI it was SO hard to not just open it all IMMEDIATELY) 

I’ll start with my favaorite items in the Voxbox. The Live Clean baby items. They sent a baby wash and a lotion-both of which I LOVE. They both smell and feel AMAZING. It’s got that powder fresh baby smell that I LOVE.  And can we add–no parabens, it’s plant derived, dye free, never tested on animals, hypoallergenic-and that’s just the start!

 I probably never would have used without this campaign. And no shame here people..I use it on my 5 year old and he smells so FRESH! Such a nice change from sweaty hair smell that comes with boys who love to be outside.😬 My rating: A+. 

The next item up for bid: Eva NYC conditioner. Not gonna lie girls–didn’t care for this. I think maybe I am just spoiled with the hair products I use now (Should that be a blog post soon??!) but this stuff just didn’t do it for me. Now I will tell you-the smell is HEAVENLY. Not so sure you could beat this smell–but it didn’t soften my hair like I would have liked. Even rinsing it I could tell it wasn’t what I wanted. Again-maybe I am spoiled-but I wasn’t a fan 👎🏼 My rating: C+. 

Ok next item: Duncan Hines single serve mug cake. 

This is the only pic I had–half eaten cake. It went quick! But hey–cute mug below makes up for my sad picture above-right? 

Ok I do ADORE that sweet mug, but the cake??? Get it. SO easy and pretty versatile! You can add coffee, milk, water, or coke! I used milk, and ate with a scoop of ice cream…mmm… The whole fam took a bite- and then a certain little monster in the house finished it off. My five year old was asking for more once we ran out too! All in all, I think this was a hit-and hooray for single serve portions! My rating: B+. 

Next, is the Country Crock butter. I love that I was sent a coupon and I could pick this up anywhere I shop! So I grabbed the one with a Calcium boost at my local Kroger. (I’m getting old y’all.Let’s help those frail bones.)

I used this first in my Chicken Noodle Casserole Dish this week..MMMMM….so GOOOD!!!! Check This link a couple posts for my recipe. Its so yummy! Looks like this….

It also spreads so easily-which is huge for us with toast! My rating: B+. 

Last item-Nature’s Bounty Energy Gummies. My gracious I have never had gummy vitamins taste so amazing! And while I caught a little flack for eating them from some super health nuts on social media ( I hate that by the way. If you don’t like it-just be nice.K?) I am a huge fan. They are scrumptious and give a nice energy boost for your day. 2 gummies are all you need and you are set! This is another product I probably never would have tried if  hadn’t been sent it, so I am so appreciative!!!!! My rating:A+.
Overall, I am a huge fan of my Voxbox and think you all would love to get them too! Click the link HERE to get involved. It’s a great setup for everyone! Try it out and let me know what you think 🙂
