Influenster VoxBox: Crest Optic White Review

I love Influenster...I get the coolest free stuff from them!

Here is my most recent VoxBox:

I qualified for the Crest Optic White box with: a Colgate Optic White Toothbrush, toothpaste and $3 off coupons to share with my friends.

This toothbrush is really cool it is the first of it's kind to have a built in whitening pen.  I have been using whitening products in the past and I think this is the easiest to use.

Since I am getting married in a few months I am saving this for closer to the day so I can have beautiful white teeth for the millions of pictures that will be taken that day :)

Thanks Influenster!!

In case you don't know what Influenster is it is a website that you rate items on and then you have the chance to qualify for VoxBoxes that they do every once in a while.  These boxes have awesome items in it that you get to try for free!  All you have to do is tell others about them on a blog, facebook, instagram, twitter, youtube, whatever!  Super easy and awesome!

Monogram V-Neck: El's Briar Patch Review

Y'all know I'm crazy about my monograms...well head on over to El's Briar Patch to get a selection of beautiful, high quality monogrammed items!

I had the chance to review the Personalized Monogrammed T-Shirt:

Lots of color options!!

My shirt is a pink color with teal chevron pocket and navy LOVE!

Lots of font options as well...I picked the Script font, that one's pretty much always my favorite

This is such a great way to make a plain t shirt absolutely adorable!!

I am in love with this t shirt, every time I wear it I get SO many compliments!  It is SUPER comfortable!

One thing I love is that the pocket is actually functional, I've seen a lot of other monogrammed t's that just sew the pocket closed.

Meadowbelle Market Review

I got to review the Personalized Initial Necklace from Meadowbelle Market:

The sweetest sterling silver initial keepsake. Available in either uppercase or lowercase letters. Personalized initials make a lovely flower girl or bridesmaid gift for weddings, for new moms, and for birthdays.

I absolutely love layering this piece with other necklaces!

The letters are shaped by hand using time tested tools and technique. Soldered at the joints (so they won't pull apart like wire that's simply bent). They're also slightly hammered, then tumbled for extra strength and shine!

*Initials measure approximately 1/2" to 1" tall. Letter height varies based on selection.

Beautiful Aprons! HandMad'ns Crafts Review

HandMade'ns Crafts is a mother-daughter company who specialize in handsewn items, including aprons, bibs, adult bibs, B'Aprons and more.  

I had the chance to review the Vintage Sewing Patterns Apron:

Cute, retro apron featuring vintage McCall's girls sewing patterns on a pink gingham background . This apron is one size fits most with adjustable ties at the neck and waist. Can be machine washed, dried, and ironed. For added durability and structure, all of our aprons are completely lined on the back. With a large pocket and a cute, complimenting ruffle, this apron is adorable and functional.

Oh my goodness this couldn't get any cuter!  I love the vintage look of the patterns on the apron and seriously what could be more perfect than this apron for a Home Ec teacher??

I am in love!!

CVS Savings Haul!!!

I love a bargain and clearance is probably my favorite word...CVS has won it's way into my heart with wonderful deals on makeup.

I have heard of the CVS Beauty Clearance event from  youtube but hadn't ever checked it out.  For those of you who don't know what this is, at the end of every other season or so CVS does a big overhaul and marks several of their beauty items 50%-75% off.  I had no idea it was going on right now, I just happened to be in the CVS and the lovely clearance signs called my name.  I lasered in on those was good but when I saw a green one I was like YES!  

This haul is from three different CVS's...I know I went a little crazy but seriously these deals were crazy good:

Everything is all jumbled up but here is a look at all my goodies! 

 Revlon Colorstay Aqua powder in Translucent $3.69

Makeup wedges...these were $1.00!! 

I seriously got 8 nail polishes for around $15.00!!  And these are good quality nail polishes too (Covergirl, Nicole, & Sally Hansen) These ranged from .85 cents to $2.00!!  

I actually got two of these, I got one and have been using it, loved it so bought another...I have a problem I know.  It was one of my more expensive items coming in at $5.25 but this stuff stays all day! 

 This round:
-my other foundation
-Not Your Mother's She's A Tease Volumizing Hairspray- I love this brand but they can be pricy I got this for $1.49!!!
-COTY Loose Powder in Natural - $1.87
-Physician's Formula Tone Correcting Powder (I have been wanting to try this line but can't pay that price...I got this one for $3.49)
-Physician's Formula Baked Eyeshadow in Oatmeal - $2.12

I got a couple new products I am super excited to try and some old favorites.  Overall I saved around $100!!!

Here's some tips for your CVS clearance trip:

1. Not all CVS will physically mark their products down. This means you have to physically go in, fill you basket up with items from the list that you think are said to be on sale, and use the scanner in the store to make sure they actually are. Believe me you do not want to get in the line with a basket full of goodies only to find that only two things in your basket are actually marked down. This has happened to me and I’m saving you the humiliation.

2. Not all CVS stores will have their sale at the same time.

3. Stock up - But only if you need it.  Stock up on your favorite lipsticks, eyeliners and even foundations, before you check out just make sure it’s stuff you really want to use and not a “in the moment” item.

Have you been to the CVS Sale?  I would love to hear your deal finds, leave me a comment below telling me your awesome finds and if you have any coupon/deal tips please share!!
