#FrostyVoxBox Review @InfluensterVox

This month I received a wonderful box of samples from Influenster.

The items included are:

Boots No. 7 Protect and Perfect Intense Advanced Serum -  This product is good for deep lines and wrinkles. Made me skin feel firm. I like the way it felt on my face.  It is scented but it wasn't overwhelming to me. This product is hypo-allergenic.

NYC Expert Last Lip Color in Sugar Plum-  My lips felt smooth and moist after applying this!  The color was perfect for my skin tone and had a very nice pigment.  The color lasted throughout the day and didn't feather.

Celestial Seasonings Candy Cane 
Decaf Green Tea-  A delicious minty tea that is both relaxing and calming. I prefer Decaffeinated beverages and found this tea to be very delicious. Its a perfect partner to dessert for the holidays and any day.

EcoTools Hair Brush-  I love the lightweight design of this brush.  The cruelty free bristles glide nicely through my hair and are designed to minimize breakage.  I really like the bamboo handle and that it has recycled aluminum and paper packaging.  

Rimmel Gentle Eye Makeup Remover-  Works great on waterproof makeups as well as my everyday cosmetic products.  Is very gently on my skin. Did not leave an oily residue.  Dermatologist tested.

Rimmel Scandaleyes Waterproof Kohl Kajal Eyeliner- Glides on so nicely and has nice pigment.  Didn't smudge or come off when working out!  Dermatologist tested.

McCormick Gourmet Thyme-  High quality spice that added wonderful flavor to my chicken!  The bottle is very beautiful and opens and closes easily.

Fruit Vines Bites in Strawberry Flavor-  Delicious licorice!  I really enjoyed the strawberry flavor. It was juicy and flavorful.  Lowfat/Kosher/Vegan.

Book Review/Giveaway- Body & Soul, A Girl's Guide to a Fit, Fun & Fabulous Life by Bethany Hamilton

Body and Soul: A Girl's Guide to a Fit, Fun and Fabulous Life (Paperback)

This book by Bethany Hamilton is such a wonderful book for any girl.

 The positive messages that Body & Soul conveys to help girls stay spiritual and well balanced is uplifting.  I like that there are so many wonderful photos in the book that help portray exercises and healthy foods that are prepared to help girls stay well balanced.  Bethany is such a positive role model who through her own personal challenges has given positive values to girls.

The book is broken down in to sections that start out with teaching girls how to have confidence.  When Bethany was 13 she lost her arm to a 14 foot tiger shark while surfing.  She didn't let that event bring her down.  Instead she turned it into a positive by writing books that encourage girls of all ages to be the best they can be in all aspects of their lives.

The next section focuses on body and mind.  It gives girls thought provoking guidelines that will help them set goals and learn to love who they are.

Next is the fitness section which shows simple exercises that will help keep the body strong.  There are photos to help show how the exercises are done.  This section also has questions and answers throughout that may explain some questions girls have about health and fitness and key thoughts to keep them motivated.

The healthy foods section has healthy recipes with photos that can be used as ideas to eat and drink a balanced diet.  There is also a sample week of diet and exercises that can be used as  a guideline.

This is just one of many positive message books written by Bethany Hamilton.  Be sure to check out this book and all others she has written.  Any girl would love them all.

This book is available through familychristian.com.

Ozeri 4x3razor Digital Pocket 3D Pedometer with Bosch Tri-Axis Technology from Germany Review

As the new year approaches, I begin to focus on my resolutions that I want to fulfill.

One resolution that I always tend to include includes incorporating more fitness into my daily routine.

The Ozeri 4x3razor Digital Pocket 3D Pedometer helps me to keep track of my daily steps accurately and is so convenient to use.  It helps me to fulfill my daily step goals by keeping count of the amount of steps I take.

I recently took a trip to Boston and took along my Ozeri 4x3razor Digital Pocket 3D Pedometer knowing that I would be doing a lot of sight seeing on foot.  I was impressed with the convenience and accuracy of the pedometer.  In the past I have had pedometers that had to tied to shoe laces  and they were always awkward to me because I felt I always had to adjust them and didn't always get proper register of steps.  But the Ozeri 4x3razor Digital Pocket 3D Pedometer was different.  It fit conveniently in my pocket with its razor thin design.

Other features that I really like about the Ozeri 4x3razor Digital Pocket 3D Pedometer are that it also counts calories, distance, exercise time and fat burned.  It has a 7 day memory, built in clock and sports timer with auto sleep technology.  It also counts up to 1 million steps.   

This lightweight pedometer conveniently comes with a belt clip, spare battery and detachable lanyard.  It is available in 3 different colors, including blue, yellow and black. 

This would make a great gift for any sports enthusiast on your Christmas list and is available at Amazon.  Overnight shipping is available!

Disclosure:  I received this product to review.  No other compensation was received.

I received one or more of the products mentioned above for free using Tomoson.com. Regardless, I only recommend products or services I use personally and believe will be good for my readers.

InStyler has 3 great hair appliances to get the look you want easily and flawlessly.

Each product is designed for specific looks and all are so simple to use.

As shown on my model.  The first photo is the before photo.  Top right is after straightening with the center product shown above, which is the InStyler Max 2-Way Rotating Iron.

The second look shown in the bottom left photo is the curled look.  This look was easily obtained using the Tulip Auto Curler (shown in the far right photo above).  The curler does all the work for you.  Just place sections of hair in the wand and press the rotating curl button and it takes care of the rest.

The 3rd look shown on my model bottom right is the body look for those who want body and fullness.   This look was obtained using the Instyler Ionic Body Pro.  (Shown above in the left photo).
