influenster open box review - two.

Hey guys! If you haven't checked out or joined Influenster since the last time I posted this, stop reading and sign up now. 

Then come back.

K? K. 

Alright, now that we have that out of the way, we can get started. 

I recieved the Summer Beauty VoxBox just about a month ago and I have been trying out the products so I can give a good honest review of them. 

But here is the video of what I have gotten. 

Now onto what I think after using these products. 
Hawaiian Tropic Silk Hydration - This is another product I love, I use sunscreen a ton and this one not only smells amazing but it moisturizes and protects me from the sun! What can be better?!
Sally Hansen Hand Creme - This stuff you rub all over your hands to make them soft. It smells like a citrus-y wonderland.
Clear Scalp and Hair Therapy - I loved these. I could seriously feel my hair get stronger, I used it for about 2 weeks and my hair felt so healthy! Definitely going to try to find this at Wal Mart. Too bad I left it in Columbus... 
Quaker Soft Baked Bar - I had this for breakfast, it was yummy. It tasted like Banana Nut Bread. A in my book.
Sally Hanson Magnetic Nail Polish - This is definitely a super cool product, but not the product for me. I'm not a big fan of the way it looks, I'll probably wear it once in awhile, but I'll stick with my sparkles. 
Feminine Package - Um, I feel like it is a little weird to elaborate on this one. I'll just say, it gets the job done, girls. 
So there we have it! If you haven't signed up get to it! I mean you get products for FREE, why wouldn't you?

meet kristie!

Here we have a lovely sponsor of mine. Her name is Kristie and she is so cool. I read her blog every so often and watch her videos and she is such an honest and wonderful person! Not to mention very entertaining! Here's some more about her, make sure to check her blog out, I'm sure you will all fall in love.


Hey everyone, I'm Kristie from Kristie Was Here.

I blog about life--all of it--the funny, tragic, hilarious, and mundane.

I have a job, a bucket list, and a knack for being socially awkward without trying.
It's a super power, really.

Want it?

If you really knew me, you’d know that I...

Surround myself with music--home, car, work, gym, plane, bed.

Am a runner, and I'm not fast. It's fine if you are. I don't want to race you because I hate losing.

Can't spell well, and I suck at Scrabble.

Love food. I eat it unashamedly, which is also why I run.

Live to travel. I find a sense of accomplishment in packing light and landing some place new.

Do not mind having my picture taken--ever--unless it's past 10pm. After 10pm, nothing photographed should go on Facebook.

Have a phone voice. It's about 2 octaves higher than my normal voice.

Am an introvert who is incredibly social.

Sarcastic and sensitive. I find this to be a weird combination. Somehow I still have friends.

Am a fast driver, walker, eater, and shower taker.

Make videos when I'm in a bad mood and need to feel better.

I told you she was awesome! So get to it! Check her out (her blog) RIGHT NOW.
Interested in sponsoring? See here.


caterpillar eyebrows.

What an odd name for a post, right? 

But lately I have been noticing something that has really been bothering me. 

The caterpillar eyebrow style.

Now, I know that some of my readers might have these creepy crawlers on their face, but I am here to save you.

Here is how you are supposed to shape your eyebrows, thank you Lauren.

So, please, stop with the caterpillar eyebrows. Please.



hair pastels.

Recently my sister and I had some fun with some art supplies out in the summer sun. 

We used some color pastels from the local art store and we added some spunk to our hair! 

If you guys haven't tried this out, go get yourself a $2 color pastel and try it! 

It is a temporary way to add some flava to your style. 

Here's what you have to do.
First, pick a SOFT color pastel in a color of your choice at the local art supply store. 
Second, if you have dark hair, wet your hair first. If you are blonde, no need to!
Third, twist the section that you are wanting to color, take the pastel and rub it all over the hair.

and WA-LAH! Colorful, fun hair. :)




1 - Here is a picture of my new Minnetonka's! Love the color! 
2 - Lately I have been addicted to the new McCafé chocolate chip frappé's! So good!
3 - A prom picture with my BFF.
4 - The boys found some funky old hats, thought it was cute!
5 - Bug and I, obviously. 
6 - I've been contemplating getting a tattoo like this, but I'm so scared! So I just draw it on everyday with a Sharpie. Lol, I'm a loser. 
7 - My lake. 
8 - I may be a little late, but the white chocolate Reece's Eggs are to die for. 
9 - I've gotten back to blogging regularly! Yay!
10 - The BEST chicken taco's ever.
11 - Self portrait.
12 - And a cute little frog I named Prince. :) Original, I know.

new blog, new life.

Well hi there, friends.

I just thought I should let my readers know that I will not only be posting on this blog throughout college, but this one as well. 

I decided I was going to start a "College Experience" blog to not only archive my life throughout the college years but to also give some of my readers a first hand account of what that first year is really like. 

If you are interested in seeing how my life goes throughout the next four to six years please do not hesitate to follow. 

Or if you are a high school senior or college freshman looking for some opinions and an idea of what life is going to be like in college I think it'll be a good place for you as well. 

Even if you aren't interested please check it out and let me know how you like it so far! I'd love to have some opinions! :)
