Loot Crate's June "Mashup" Review @LootCrate #lootcrate #love

Hey everyone!

Time for my LOOT CRATE! Seriously, every month this is one thing that I am looking most forward to getting. For me it is way better than Christmas.

Don't know what Loot Crate is, then you, my friend, are missing out big time. Loot Crate is this kick ass monthly box service in which you get sent a box full of awesome geekery and gamerly. Each month they have a different theme of what the box is going to be like this month being MashUp. It's only $13.37 plus $6 shipping so it's an awesome price and what you get in the box pays for itself.

Enough of the chit chat ... time to get to the good stuff.

The Products


Nothing washes down a chimichanga quite like a delicious, cold, flavored drink mix. We prefer cherry! Show your love of antiheroes and sugary beverages with this mashup shirt.


These are actually UV protective to keep your eyes safe when you venture out into the open world. They also have the added benefit of showing Looter pride!

Get the best of both worlds with this awesome combination of retractable ballpoint pen with smooth writing ink on one end and a lightweight stylus on the other. No fingerprints!

Danger Brain is behind epic icons and logos including Freddie Wong's Rocketjump and VGHS! They mashed up Loot Crate into this awesome robot, possibly making it the first mechanical Looter.
We don't think we've ever seen a red masked turtle look so happy. Our mustachioed super plumber gets a little help and you get an awesome sticker from Harebrained Design!

We raided a warehouse full of candy again to find something delicious that would also fit with our theme. We present to you a cherished candy that combines a super sour outside with a sweet inside.

We could have just sent you a simple Loot Crate sticker but we know you want more. Arrange and rearrange these shapes into different figures! Be sure to tweet and Instagram your creations and tag them #lootcrate and #walltangrams

You've got a golden ticket! Use the code for a chance at a free 1 day or 3 day pass, a 50% discount on a 1 or 3 day pass or 20% off a 1 or 3 day pass. Good luck, Looters!

Ipsy's June "Wild Side" Glam Bag Review @ipsy #glambag

Hey everyone!

I finally got my Glam Bag in a few days ago and I have to say that this one has to be my favorite one so far. The products I received were perfect for me and I can't wait to show them all to you.

What is this Glam Bag that I am talking about. Well, Glam Bag is a monthly subscription service by Ipsy and for only $10 (shipping included), yeah you are reading that right, they send you amazing beauty products. Every month you are sent a new make-up bag filled with full sized products of your favorite brands. I'm not talking cheap knock-offs, no, I'm talking high end quality products. Seriously, totally awesome!

Now, enough of the chit chat. Here is the awesome products I received this month.

June's Goodies

The Products

Cailyn Cosmetics
Line-Fix Gel Eyeliner with Brush Built-In (Iron) - $21.00

Whether you are trying to create the eyes of a runway model or the classic look of a 60's Hollywood star, the Cailyn Line-Fix Gel Eyeliner can make any style possible! The easy to use built-in brush makes it perfect for taking on-the-go. Create a chic yet casual look right before work, and then update it for a night out with the girls. The Cailyn Line-Fix Gel Eyeliner brushes on smooth and stays moist just long enough for wearers to perfect their look. Once dry, the gel is smudge-proof and waterproof for 24 hours. The highly concentrated pigment of the liner creates lusciously smooth lines and is safe for sensitive eyes.

Choose from 13 rich, deep, luminous colors.

My Review

This is the best eye liner I have ever used. I have never been able to find any that lasts as long as this and that doesn't run and make me look like a raccoon a few hours later. I love the fact this one is smudge-proof on top of being waterproof. I love how the brush is already included and it makes putting this gel liner on a breeze. It goes on so smooth and rich. This is going to be my new eyeliner from now on.

J.Cat Beauty
Sparkling Cream Palette - $4.49

Everyone loves a little sparkle! Add a healthy dosage of sparkle in your life with the cream palette that comes in a variety of complementing colors. The creamy texture allows the sparkle to be applied easily with an applicator onto your skin.

This product should be used on the body and not on the eye area.

My Review

I've not used this yet but it's full of glitter and anyone who knows me knows how much I love glitter anything.  Since this shouldn't be used on the eye area I am not completely sure how I am going to use this but I am sure I can figure something out.

Blush (Angel) - $5.00

Adding a healthy glow to cheeks is effortless with the variety of blush styles and shades available from NYX Cosmetics!

The NYX Powder Blush delivers sheer, silky color that glides on and blends beautifully creating a natural glow.

The NYX Mosaic Blush contains five matte and shimmery shades in one compact blend to create a flush of color and dazzling glow!

The NYX Cream Blush offers radiant color for a dewy, sultry, long lasting finish!

My Review

This blush is gorgeous and looks darker than the picture posted. This blush is nicely pigmented and it doesn't take a lot to get a nice rose on the cheek. Such a great blush for a small little price.

Lip Pencil (Tickle Me Pink) - $12.00

Starlooks' long-lasting, full-coverage Lip Pencil enhances the shape of your lips and gives them perfect definition. This creamy, moisturizing formula glides on softly to smooth lips and ensure lipstick stays in place, while extending its wear. Can also be used as an all-over, highly-pigmented lip color. Comes in several shades and various finishes to pair with any Starlooks Lipstick, Lip Gloss, or Tendergloss!

Starlooks Makeup Line is entirely Lead Free, and Cruelty Free.

My Review

I have to admit that I don't use lip liner, like at all, but this one is a really pretty color and I think I might use it where I put a little on the lips and then cover it with a nice gloss for a nice hint of color.

J.Cat Beauty
Eyelash + Eyelash Glue (EL79) - $3.99

Create some drama with these voluminous faux eyelashes! Available in 30 different styles that you won’t be able to resist. Each includes an individual eyelash adhesive to last you all day long!

My Review

Just have to say that I love fake lashes because my natural ones are not as lush and pretty as I would like them. Of course, that is why they invented fake lashes. lol I haven't used these yet but they seem just as easy to put on as any other so can't wait to try these.

June's Pawalla Cat Box @PawallaBox #lovethisbox

Hey everyone!

My kitties are super happy with this months Pawalla box and so am I. This one was way better than the last one and they seem to be loving all the goodies they received in this one too.

So, want your furry friend to get his or her own Pawalla box then hit the link below for a special discount on your first box. Want to know how much it is per month. Well, it's actually not that expensive for the quality of products you get. It's only $30 per month for the deluxe box and $20 per month for the mini. Both boxes are filled with different stuff and since I have two kitties I decided the deluxe would be great for the two of them.

So, what came in this months Pawalla box that made my kitties so happy. Well, take a look.

The Products

PushClean - Pet Towelettes (12 pack) - $9.99

Natural Pet Grooming Wipes are handy wipes made from bamboo, that you can take anywhere to wipe your pet's dirty paws, bottom or face. They are 100% biodegradable and do not contain any synthetic fibers. Natural Pet Grooming Wipes are unlike any wipe you have ever seen! Inside the slender portable tube are 12 small button-like individually wrapped loose-woven wipes that fit into the palm of your hand, and are great for your pocket or purse.

The good news is that the wipe never dries out like most wipes because it never soaks up the cleaning solution inside until you are ready to use it! As an added bonus, the Natural Pet Grooming Wipes have a clean, refreshing scent.

My Review

I have to say that I love these and plan on buying more when I get the chance. These are a quick and easy way to wipe down my kitties when they get into something they shouldn't. What makes these better is the fact they come in different types of wipes for not only your pets but for people too. They also have a great scent and are green friendly which is what makes me love these even more.

I Love Catz - Sisal Rattle Football Cat Toy - $5.99

This fun football shaped toy is made of durable sisal rope that is perfect for scratching. It also rattles when your cat bats it around, so you’ll always know where they both are –just follow the rattles!

My Review

When I opened the package to get this thing out my Alley cat started going bonkers. She couldn't wait to get her paws on this toy. She loves stuff that makes noise and the more noise the better. However, it also sounds like the treat bag when I rattle it to get her attention. I think that may be why she loves this toy so much. But I like it because they can play with this and claw at it to sharpen their paws while they bat it back and forth.

Doggles - Sushi Catnip Crab - Blue - $3.19

This adorable crab will have your feline friend loving sea critters more than ever! It’s soft, perfect for cuddling, and stuffed with catnip that is sure to drive your cat wild during playtime.

My Review

First, how cute is this little guys?!? I mean really, just too freakin cute. How did my cats like it. Well, it doesn't make noise so honestly they aren't to thrilled with it but when I start moving it around and playing with them with it they become interested. Silly kitties. I like it though cause it's just to freakin cute.

My Review

My cats love to eat but they don't seem to like this type of food. They love seafood but they love their gravy and this is like a watery mess and they just don't seem to care for it. But I do love the fact that it is packed with great stuff for my kitties and it's made with only good stuff.

My Review

I mixed a little bit of this with some of my cats dry food and oh my goodness did they eat every bit of it. They seem to really like this stuff and I love the fact it is good for them.

Greenies - Smartbite Digestive Salmon 2.1oz - $2.99

Give your cat a delicious bite that delivers essential health benefits. Feline Greenies SmartBites Digestive Care has a crunchy, teeth-cleaning outer shell featuring coconut meal, a source of natural fiber that supports healthy digestion by supporting good bacteria in the digestive tract. The soft, creamy center contains salmon meal protein to give these bites irresistible flavor and support healthy metabolism. Your cat will think she's getting a treat, and you'll love the fact that each bite has only 1.3 calories. Re-sealable bag helps hold freshness. Salmon flavor. For cats.

My Review

I haven't opened these yet to feed my cats but I will soon. I know I have bought Greenies treats before and while one cat loved them the other one wasn't impressed. Maybe they both will love these considering they are crispy on the outside and tender and meaty on the inside just like the Temptation treats that both my cats love.

Whole Life - Tail Mix Cat Treats - Roasted Chicken 1.2oz - $4.39

Whole Life treats contain zero filler. Just what your cat needs and nothing more. We gently dry our treats, taking away excess moisture, while concentrating flavor and nutrition. The result is light weight, crisp and delicious. Lighter also means more treats per ounce than moist treats...more times to connect with your best friend and treat them right.

My Review

These are awesome and my cats can't get enough of them. This is nothing but freeze dried roasted chicken and my cats can't get enough of anything chicken. They love these right out of the bag but they also love it when I put them in a bit of water to re-hydrate the pieces and talk about two very happy kitties. I am seriously gong to get a few more of these.

Well, that's what came in my June's box and I really am loving these and so are my cats. I am always looking for great things for my kitties and this is an awesome way to introduce new things to them and not have to spend a boat load of money.

My Review

(this is not my picture and is used for display purposes only)

I have to say that while I have not gotten to wear these that I received I have bought other ones when they first come out and I instantly fell in love with them.

I honestly love the color of these and I have not been able to find them anywhere so I can buy more. They are so quick and easy to use that really there is no reason why you can't have great looking nails all of the time. I know I always have my nails painted but sometimes I don't have time to do it so that is where these nails come in handy. It literally takes about 2 to 3 minutes to put these on and then you are good for the rest of the day. Now, I wouldn't say these are going to last a week or more but they should last a good few days and if one pops off it isn't that big of a deal because there are extras included so just take out the one you need and you're all set. Oh, I also love these for going out on the town with the girls. I don't have to wait for polish to dry or anything and if I lose one, like I said before, I can pop on a new one and I am all good. Plus with these coming in all kinds of awesome and cool colors you really can't go wrong with any of these. So, I totally recommend these to all my girlfriends.

I give these nails

{Product Review} Tastykake® Kandy Bar Kakes @InfluensterVox #SpringVoxBox

Hey everyone!

Thought I would start the day out with a yummy review on ...

I received one of these Tastykakes in my Influenster Spring Fling VoxBox and I have to say that I loved it. I received the S'mores and my goodness was it good. I won't lie and tell you that I don't like snack cakes because I do but this one really was the best one I have ever had. It had such a great flavor and wasn't overly sweet like many of the snack cakes are out on the market. Honestly, I can't wait to go out and buy me some of the Reese's ones because I am addicted to Reese's cups and I have a feeling I will be addicted to these too.

The Tasty Baking Company, founded in 1914 and located in Philadelphia, Pa., is one of the country’s leading bakers of snack cakes, pies, cookies, and donuts. As a subsidiary of Flowers Foods, the company has bakery facilities in Philadelphia and Oxford, Pa. that offer more than 100 products under the Tastykake brand name. Celebrated for their freshness and quality ingredients, the Tastykake line includes such classics as Krimpets, Kandy Kakes, Juniors, and Kreamies.

Check out the Tastykake website or their Facebook page to find out more information.

Kandy Bar Kakes are the best of both worlds. Light and fluffy chocolate enrobed cakes come in a unique kandy bar shape with a delicious créme filling made with your favorite candy flavors.

Available in S'mores, Peppermint, and Peanut Butter flavor.

Available at grocery and convenience stores across America.

{Product Review} Ozeri CadioTech Premium Digital Blood Pressure Monitor

Ozeri CardioTech Premium Series BP3T Digital Arm Blood Pressure Monitor with Intelligent Hypertension Indicator

About the Product

CardioTech products by Ozeri offer clinically proven technology and are used by physicians and hospitals around the world. Compact, portable and simple to use, the CardioTech Premium Series BP3T Blood Pressure Monitor is an advanced 2-user arm-cuff monitor powered by a state-of-the-art CPU that utilizes a double pulse detection algorithm to enhance pulse wave detection, thereby improving accuracy.

Unlike traditional blood pressure monitors that inflate to 170 mmHg or higher by default, the CardioTech BP3T utilizes MWI (Measure While Inflate), a dynamic measurement technology that varies the inflation process according to real-time blood pressure detection to reduce measurement time and increase user comfort.

Featuring a Blue LCD with LED backlight, touch sensitive buttons, and a slider switch for easy user selection, the CardioTech BP3T Blood Pressure Monitor stores up to 120 blood pressure readings (60 x 2 users) with date and time memory recall.

The CardioTech BP3T automatically classifies each reading according to World Health Organization hypertension guidelines with an intelligent graphical display. It also calculates average blood pressure based on the last 3 readings, and detects irregular heartbeat (Arrhythmia) for an improved understanding of your heart's health.

Backed by a 5 year warranty, the Ozeri CardioTech Blood Pressure Monitor ships with 4 AAA batteries (included), a medium sized arm cuff included (8.7"-14.2"/ 22-36cm) a carrying bag and user manual.

My Review

First off, I want to say how attractive this system is. I have used OTC blood pressure monitors before when I was taking care of my grandmother and none of them were anything close to the way in which this one looks, but don't let how this monitor looks fool you because it preforms even better. Also, I love the fact this monitor comes with its own case which is very handy in keeping everything together. It’s also big enough to keep a small journal or notebook in also to keep track of other things too which is great.

This monitor was so easy to use and operate that anyone could use it. The instructions were easy to read so sitting this machine up was a breeze. Once everything was in place and ready to use all you had to do was push one button and the machine did the rest.

The other really great part of this monitor is the fact that I can keep a record of two different people which is really great considering I keep up with my mother's and my uncles blood pressure, so being able to keep up with both of them and the ease of switching a button between the two is even more of a plus for this monitor.

The only thing I could wish for this monitor is a slightly bigger cuff or an added wrist cuff for people with larger arms or didn't like their blood pressure measured on their arm. Maybe they have them where you can buy them separate but I am not sure but it would be a nice add on but doesn't make me not like this monitor any less. I feel this monitor can stand up to anything in the doctor’s office or hospital because the same people who make those machines also make this one, in my book that is a win, win.

Overall this monitor performed well over my expectations and I have already been telling other people about it and how well it worked. Anyone wanting to keep a check on not only their blood pressure but anyone's blood pressure needs this monitor. I feel like it could possibly be the best one on the market, yet.
