Victoria's Secret purchases

Victoria's Secret

          I made a much need trip to one of my favorite places in the Mall resonantly and these lovelies are what I brought home with me.
          Pink luminous body bronzer in the scent "sunkissed" I have tried it once, but I did not exfoliate before applying so it did not go on evenly.  I still have to try again before I can really give a good option on this one but I can say it smells like coconut and I just love the coconut scent in the summer.  Its also a huge bottle at 8.4 fl. oz. much better then the ones from the drug store.
          I love the sent Fresh & Clean, by PINK.  I picked up this sent in the travel size body spray to carry in my purse not to long ago and I loved it so much I had to go back and get the rest of the set.  I picked up this 2 in 1 wash & scrub and the body lotion.   The scrub beads are allot smaller then I'm use to, it was a very nice change to the aggressive body scrubs that I already own.  The sent is fresh and long lasting and when layered with the body lotion it lasts all day.  They carry two sizes of the lotion the one I picked up is the large tub (16.9 fl. oz.) and its perfect to leave out (I leave it out on my night stand) because it is so freakin cute!
          Next time you go into Victoria's Secret you have to try this sent.  This will be a long time repurchase for me.

      Lysol power and free uses hydrogen peroxide to release thousands of micro-bubbles to clean tough stains and kills 99.9% of viruses and bacteria.  It requires no gloves or mask and actually smells good.  I don't feel bad letting my son stay in the kitchen while I clean.  This is my new favorite cleaner it brakes up the tough stuff so easy there is no point ever buying anything else.  Double recommended!

NEW Kellogg's Special K Nourish Hot Cereal and Bars

Kellogg's Special K Nourish

Kellogg's Special K Nourish oatmeal cups and bars
Box Total $23.09

I am not a fan of oatmeal but my husband loves it.  And he was more then happy to try out these new nourish hot cereals from Kellogg.  I was amazed when he said he loved them, he is usually a very picky eater so for him to say that it is defiantly saying allot.  He also said that the topping where a great change for him morning oatmeal, to ether mix into the hot cereal or eat separate.  I will be purchasing these for him in the future and at only 190 calories these are a nice healthy treat.

"With Special K Nourish you can mix things up with a new kind of hot cereal – a unique multi-grain blend of quinoa, oats, barley and wheat. Each delicious flavor is a good source of protein, fiber, and vitamins A, C and E, so you can nourish yourself with a warm, nutritious start to your day."

Oatmeal with toppings available in the flavors
  • Cranberry Almond
  • Maple Brown Sugar Crunch
  • Cinnamon Raisin Pecan

Nourish bars available in the flavors Cranberry Almond, Lemon Twist and Dark Chocolate Nut Delight 

I have yet to try these bar but I am personally excited to try them out. I love cranberries and if there is a new diet bars, you can always count me in.  I have tried them all and can not wait to try these.  I kind of wish I had gotten to try the dark chocolate hut delight but I am more then willing to pick up a full box to try out.
Both of these items can be found at Kroger.

A special thanks to Kellogg's And BzzAgent to these promo items.

July 2013 Birchbox

July 2013 Birchbox

     Curly Hair Solutions by Jonathan Torch, Curl Keeper "total control for frizzy hair" (forgot to take a separate picture)
I'm not a fan of foil packets and this is only one tiny step up from that. In a paper packet that is larger that most foils (at 1 fl. oz.), its still not resealable so once you open it it can dry out pretty fast.  I have not tried it yet but I have high hopes with the full size price tag at only $10 it would defiantly be worth the purchase.

     Juicy Couture Couture La La
I already have two of the Juicy couture fragrances and I love them both so I really want to try this new sent.  I don't mind getting the perfume samples in my box as long as they make up for it on one of the other items.

     ModelCo Party Proof Matte lipstick in the color "get naked"
I have said this before I don't understand why everyone assumes that every one's perfect nude is all the same this lip color looks like the frosted lips of the 80' on me.  It's horrible my lips are naturally more of a mauve rose tone and this is flesh color.  So I like the fact that I receive a full size lipstick (but in cheaper packaging then the ModelCo brands original package) but it might as well have not been in the box that's how bad the color is.  I wish they could make there beauty profile a little more specific and ask the right questions.  Because stuff like this should not happen.

      Benta Berry G-1 moisturizing face cream
I am so over the tons of moisturizers that Birchbox sends out.  They are all practically the same... nothing special.  I pay for the box to receive things I haven't heard of that are actually worth buying, not to receive brands I've never heard of from some other country that are no better that my American store brands.  I wont blow my socks off high end samples and or travel sizes!

     Birchbox Bobby Pins
Not impressed, I don't wear hair accessories and this things are so big and heavy I'm not sure that there cuteness is worth the head ache I will get from wearing them.  But a-las It could be worse, I hear next months beauty extra is post cards again! (Ugh, eye roll)

          This box total is hard to figure this month on account of the lipstick is full-size but not the original packaging that included a mirror.

Box Total: less then $34.49

July 2013 IPSY

 Ipsy July 2013
My Glam Bag
"Beach Beauty"

Pop Beauty pouty pop crayon in the color Coral Crush .1 oz.
I have wanted to try one of these but really didn't want to buy the whole box set of 5, if it was going to turn out that I didn't like them.  So it was nice to see this in My Glam Bag.  Unfortunately it did not look good with my skin tone I think any other color besides this one would have worked perfectly.  But this bag was so good I don't mind the trial and error color.
Tinibeauty in the color Mai Tai $13 .5fl. oz. Triple-Free
Receive 30% off plus $5 ground shipping on any purchase by entering code HOT4IPY
This color is a red coral and the polish is smooth and opaque very happy to see this full size polish in my bag.

Big sexy hair weather proof
Receive $5 off $25 or more at enter code: 108723
I love trying new things from this brand unfortunately this item stinks so bad its hard for me to use.   I really hope I just got a defective one because I really loves the way it works with my frizzy hair!  I will probably try to get another travel size just to see if its meant to smell like that first,  But defiantly be repurchasing this item.

receive 10% off the California collection enter code IPSY
Very cute packaging!  It looks like just a mini palette with three color that are, a purple from the Hollywood palette, an brown from the San Francisco palette and a gold from the Malibu palette.  They are pretty colors but do not have good pay off and half fall out.  I will not buy any of these palettes and will be very weary of BH Cosmetics eye shadows until I try a few more.

Coola Mineral sunscreen unscented moisturizer SPF 20 .23 fl. oz. No coupon code.
I like the brand Coola but I do not like their sample sizes.  They seem okay at first but I was shooting the photos for my May 2013 Birchbox when I noticed that the bottle was not even half full.  (Seen here) So sure enough I checked and this one two was the same way.  I guess its not that big of a deal just don't think that your getting a good size sample when in reality its almost as empty as a foil packet.  I have not tried this moisturizer yet I have so may sample moisturizer its going to take awhile to use them all.

Total $35.69
