Influenster Charm Voxbox

Yay, another voxbox came in the mail a few weeks ago.  I've honestly lost count on how many I've received since I joined Influenster and they never disappoint!  The latest is the Charm Voxbox* and I love that it has a mix of beauty and food items.  As always, I received it complimentary in return for my honest opinions.

Check out the unboxing on YouTube and read on below to see how I liked it all.  Don't forget to head over to Influenster and sign up!




Wet n' Wild 1 Step WonderGel Nail Color

An at home mani that lasts up to 2 weeks?! I really wanted to love this but it didn't even last 24hrs! I tried this polish on clean nails; once with a base coat and once without. Both times my mani chipped after a few hours. The only positive thing I can say is the brush bristles are wide but even so, after applying two coats, the color wasn't even. Very disappointing.


Vera Wang Embrace Perfume
The scent is nice; not over powering and not too soft.  That is saying a lot since I'm very picky with wearable scents.  I really wanted to love this and give it 5 stars but it just lacks a lux Vera Wang factor I was expecting from this brand.  The scent didn't last long at all. 


McCormick Organics Taco Seasoning 
I usually make my own taco seasoning but this is great to grab for a quick weeknight dinner - one you can feel good about since it's organic!

Last Call for Easter!

Alrighty, who else left everything Easter for the last minute?  I know I'm not alone! 
I did a quick #targetrun  and got lucky with finding some cute items. 

We normally don't do a big family gathering but I did want to make a traditional Easter dinner.  I'm planning to try out a Pinterest recipe for Balsamic Brown Sugar Lamb Chops and serving it with some organic mashed golden potatoes.  The supermarket must have known I was coming because I found the lamb on sale, yas!  And we can't forget dessert.  My go to is always carrot cake, yum!  

Check out my Pinterest Easter Board for some last minute ideas you can try, and don't forget to watch my YouTube video to see the items I scored.  

Hope you all have a lovely Easter! xo

Target Dollar Spot Haul

Hello everyone!

I scored a bunch of clearance items from the Dollar Spot on my recent #TargetRun!
Here's a sneak peak at what I hauled in my latest YouTube video.  I'm most excited for the cloud shadow boxes and rope storage baskets.  The clouds are perfect for the gallery wall I want to do for my littlest one and the quality of the baskets just blew me away!


Check out the video to see everything I got!

Weeknight Dinner | Tacos with NEW Daisy Sour Cream



Tacos are such an easy and fast dinner dish, especially for a weeknight! The kids love it because they can create their own taco. And well, I had the new Daisy Sour Cream* I was dying to use! 

Yes! Sour cream now comes in squeezable packaging! It's not a bottle; more like a bag with a flip top on the bottom. It's genius and I absolutely LOVE it! I would find myself throwing away sour cream tubs after only 1 or 2 uses. It would get that watery stuff (which some might just pour out) that I found so gross. Having sour cream in a squeezable tube would make it stay fresher longer and so much easier to use. 

I threw this all together in under 30 minutes. I seasoned the grass fed ground beef with homemade taco seasoning. I let that marinate while I chopped the organic lettuce, tomatoes, and green onions. I cooked the ground beef and simultaneously got my bowls out and separated everything. I heated up the flour and corn tortillas (it really does make a difference if you heat them up covered with a moist paper towel). Done and done! 

The Daisy Sour Cream was so much easier to use than scooping it out with a spoon. The kids were more inclined to have it too! I will def not ever go back to buying it in a tub. 


I received this product complimentary from Influenster for testing purposes. Want in on the next box? Sign up here!
