PopSugar Must Have January- Worth over $100

JOIN POPSUGAR HERE

I am really excited about my latest PopSugar Must Have shipment.  Even better, I have had enough referrals that I now have VIP status and my next 6 months are FREE!  

Want to know more about the service?  Check out my blog post HERE.

January's Box

Jet-Puffed Mallow Bits
Full Size Est. Value $4.50
I actually received these along with the cutest mug and packets of Swiss Miss from a student for Christmas.  I absolutely LOVE these in hot chocolate!  They are a bit hard so they last longer.  

Think Thin Protein Bars
Total Value $5.67
These bars just weren't for me.  I shared the crunch bar with my boyfriend who agrees with me that it was a bit dry.  The creamy peanut butter bar was the one I was most looking forward to and I had to toss it after one bite.  It also was very dry.  If you are into these kind of bars, you may disagree, but they just were not my cup of tea.  The Divine dark chocolate coconut was very good, though.  It was the only one of the three that I would consider purchasing in the future.

Popbar Hot Chocolate on a Stick (x2)
Value $6
O.M.G!!!!!  This was AMAZING!!!  No joke, I was in heaven.  The problem was, I was too impatient to try it as a drink and just ate the chocolate straight from the stick (no shame).  They included both a milk chocolate and dark chocolate and I loved both.  Seriously, whoever thought of this was pure genius!  The point was to try it with the marshmallows, but I will just trust that it was a delicious combination.  ;)

How you are SUPPOSED to consume it.

Remix Watch
Value $45
I am a little torn as to whether I like this watch or not.  It has both good and bad points.  It has a pretty neat LED light show and is very comfortable.  Also, you can change the bands.  On the other hand it is very large and is not waterproof.  Also, after looking on the website, none of the watches have the actual numbers and this one does.  It is a special order for PopSugar, so this may be why.  I am excited that I got it in pink, though.  Other subscribers have also received this in black, blue, and white.  I do have to say it is a neat surprise.


Epicuren Lip Balm
Full Size Value $9
This is another product that I am really on the fence about.  I usually give lip balms to my boyfriend, but after smelling it, he automatically did not want it.  The tea tree oil is a bit strong when you first apply it.  If you can get past the first few minutes, the smell and taste subsides and leaves your lips feeling really soft.  This is something I would definitely apply at night.


Stott Pilates Stabiliy Ball
Value $38.99
This is one of my favorite items.  I love stability balls for so many reasons.  Sometimes I use them in place of a chair and of course they are great to exercise with.  This comes with the ball and pump.  

Inserts/Coupons
This month we received a coupon for the bars, exercises for our stability ball, and a $15 credit to Castegram.  This is really awesome.  You can use photos to create a case for your I Phone or Samsung Galaxy.  The cases are normally $35 with free shipping, so this puts a personalized case at only $20.  Not too shabby. :)

Total Value Without Coupons- $109.16
Total Value With- $125.15

Certainly worth $35 in my opinion! ;)  ENJOY!

Palmolive Fresh Infusions- Courtesy of Influenster

Hey guys! I recently received another great Voxbox from Influenster (www.influenster.com). In case you are not aware, Influenster is a company that sends products for people to review and share. You receive a score  based on how well you promote products, surveys you take, activities you complete, etc. Your score will then determine which promotions you get to participate in. The boxes are free, but the opinions are all my own.

This voxbox included THREE full size bottles of Palmolive Fresh Infusions.  They all come in very pretty bottles that will look great on your sink and smell fabulous.  My favorite scent is the lime basil.  My second favorite was the lemon thyme.  My boyfriend's mother loved the ginger nectar, so I passed that bottle along to her.  Influenster actually encouraged us to pass a bottle along, so this worked out perfectly!  One bottle is staying in my kitchen and the other is coming with me to my classroom.  Thanks for the awesome soap Palmolive and Influenster!

FREE Zoya Nail Polish

Hi gorgeous girls!  I came across an amazing deal that I just had to share with you!  Right now, you can get 3 (yes, THREE) free nail polishes from Zoya.  All you have to pay for is the shipping.

To get your free polishes, simply go to http://www.zoya.com, pick out three of your favorite shades (it may take a while), add them to your cart, and apply the promo code:

ZOYA2013

You will see a $24 credit to your cart and you will only be charged $10 for shipping.  Even better, I believe that if you spend $25, you get shipping for free as well!  I am not big on nail polish because I usually just use what is at the salon and have an over abundance as is, so I did not attempt to get the free shipping.  $10 for 3 polishes was a big enough deal for me! ;)

I chose the shades Lara, Kali, and Tobey, all a gorgeous shade of pink.  Let me know if you take advantage of this deal and which colors you pick out!  You had better hurry, this deal runs out on January 13th!  Happy shopping!

Diamond Candles

Visit Sneakpeeq HERE.


I am SOOOO excited to share one of my latest shopping joys with you ladies!  I have become very fond of Sneakpeeq lately and was thrilled to see that they are offering Diamond Candles.  These are candles that come with a ring worth $10-$5,000.  First, I will show you my candle and the gorgeous ring that was inside and then I will let you know all the details. ;)

THE BOX
Talk about excitement seeing this come in the mail!

THE CANDLE
This is a very decent size candle that is taller than it is wide.  I chose honeysuckle, but have two more candles in different scents on the way.  This one smells amazing and reminds me of my childhood.  I grew up on a farm and my cousins and I always rode our bikes to the creek where there was always honeysuckle growing along the road.  This candle smells just like it!

THE WAIT...
I stared at this candle for an hour just waiting for it to burn down to reveal my ring... then I had to leave for volleyball practice (I am a coach this year) and was disappointed that my boyfriend had blown it out when I came home, therefore I had to relight it and wait AGAIN!  So I decided to use a spoon and dig the ring out out ;)

**PLEASE NOTE THAT THE RING IS WRAPPED IN FOIL AND THEN IS IN A TINY ZIPLOCK BAG.  I JUST WAS TOO IMPATIENT TO TAKE A PICTURE BEFORE I RIPPED INTO THE FOIL.**

THE RING!!!
Talk about GORGEOUS!  I was so excited and it actually fits PERFECTLY!!  I love this ring so much and have gotten so many compliments.  When I posted it to Instagram and Facebook, I got asked a few times if it was an engagement ring.  Haha.  



I could not be happier with the candle, the ring, or the experience.  Thus, I have already ordered two more candles.  After posting the pictures to Facebook, I have had at least 6 friends purchase a candle as well. Seriously, the company should pay me for promoting their product!  Lol.  Just in case they happen to come across this post and read this, I would like my payment in candles ;)  One with a $5,000 ring please! :D

DIAMOND CANDLES

The company that makes these candles is dedicated to creating a quality product.  You can check out their website HERE.  The candles are made from all natural soy and burn 2X as long as regular candles.  The candles are $24.95 on their site before tax and shipping.  They have several wonderful scents to choose from.  I like that you can check out real photos that customers have submitted and that you can even watch a video that shows them being made.  They also have a FAQ page full of answers to all of the questions that are running through your head right now that I have not covered.

SNEAKPEEQ

So what exactly is Sneakpeeq?  They are a website that offers discounts on different items for a certain period of time.  Once you log in, you click on an item you are interested in and click on a button to "peeq" at the discount price.  Sometimes you can get badges when you peeq which can give you discounts on products.  When you join, I believe that you get $10 toward your first purchase.  The maximum price on the candles is $23.99 on the site, but you can use your badges to make them cheaper.  There are only 12 days left to get your Diamond Candle through Sneakpeeq, so if you want a discount, you need to be quick!  You can visit Sneakpeeq HERE.

If you happen to order a candle, please be sure to let me know!  I am excited to see what my friends receive and what they think of their candles.  Enjoy!
