Loot Crate's May "Equip" Review @LootCrate #lootcrate #love

Hey everyone!

Anyone who knows me knows how much I am in love with my Loot Crate. What is Loot Crate you ask? Well, its a monthly box that is full of gamer/geek related stuff. Loot Crate started in August of 2012 and has been getting more awesome by the month. Don't believe me. Well, check it out for yourself because then you will see just how awesome it really is. Want to know how much it is. Well, it's super cheap. Only $19.37 w/shipping, so for $20 bucks you get a box full of awesomeness delivered to you every single month. Gotta love that!

So, enough chit chat. Want to know what I got in this months crate. Well, look no further.

The Products

Pure Nintendo
1 Year Digital Subscription: $10

An independent magazine and source for exclusive interviews, previews, reviews, interactive puzzles, and much much more from the world of Nintendo. For IOS and Android so you can be equipped on the go.

Black Tie Geek
8 Bit Bow Tie

If there's one thing we've learned from our favorite secret agents, sometimes your mission requires you to equip yourself to look classy. This 8-bit bow tie pulls it off, while retaining your geek card.

Don't Panic Towel

We thought about putting an actual Guide to the Galaxy in, but we figured every Looter probably has easy access to one. It just so happens that May 25th is Towel Day and now you are equipped for travel.

The Dojo
Ninja Cord Wrap

They secretly await, hidden until needed. They also are known for having amazing grip. Have you ever seen a ninja fall down off a building? Now you can wrap them up and prevent a messy situation.

Boston America
Super Mario Coin Candies

How does Mario equip himself? Question mark box of course. Each box is a collectible tin filled with tasty strawberry coin-shaped sours.

Fred & Friends
Inanimate Stickers

Until now, talking to these inanimate objects may have seemed a little odd. Slap on these mouths, eyes and other parts to your stuff and feel less awkward about talking to a stapler.

Gus Santome of
Papercraft Ironman

We're big fans of papercraft. While it may take some time to complete, it's always satisfying. We've included the always stylishly equipped Iron Man in his Iron Man 3 Mark 17 "Heartbreaker" suit.

The best part about Loot Crate is opening up the box and finding a little extra something tucked inside. In everyone's crate this month they tucked in a super hero figure, which is pretty awesome.

Which one did I get. Who else?

All in all I loved this crate. My unicorn has gotten himself a lovely tie and I have some awesome stuff to add to my collection. Totally awesome.

Remember if you want awesome stuff sent to you every month then sign up.

Ipsy's May "Spring Fling" Glam Bag Review @ipsy #glambag

Hey everyone!

Have I got an awesome monthly bag of goodies for you. It's called Glam Bag by a company called Ipsy. 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. I mean, what could be better.

This was my very first Glam Bag and I have to say that so far I am very impressed. I am totally a girly girl and the products that I received is tailored to my personal look. How you ask? Well, when I signed up I took a brief survey that asked me about my personal style, look, and skin tone. When I finished they knew what colors would look best on me and what products and colors I preferred. Genius, I know!

Okay, so now I am sure you are wondering what May's Glam Bag is so I am going to stop chit chatting and get on with the goodies already. Also, if you are loving what you are seeing and hearing be sure to sign up for your own glam bag because honestly I haven't told you the most awesome part about it yet ... wanna know? Okay, the best part is that it only cost .... get ready ... $10 per month and that includes shipping. Don't believe me, go check it out for yourself. This has quickly become one of my favorite monthly goodies.

May's Monthly Goodies


Island Vanilla Perfume Roll-On: $12

Summer and Shimmer Are Truly Endless With Beautiful Body Products from Pacifica

Island Vanilla: Inspired by the unique magic of Tahitian vanilla, this sensual blend sets sweet and sultry vanilla absolute, with honey-jasmine notes and a touch of fruitiness, against a deep and beautiful base of tea.

My Review

When I first saw this I was excited because I love perfume, however when I saw that it was vanilla I wasn't feeling it because I really am not into vanilla for reasons all on it's own. However, I gave it a try and I have to say that I am in love with this perfume. It has a light crisp scent and with my body chemistry it really smells great. I keep it in my purse for a nice hint of scent in the afternoon and everyone that has smelt it loves it too.

Colour Sheers Lipstick: $22 - Daydream

Hydrate and nourish lips while depositing beautifully translucent color for the perfect pout. Available in a wide-range of fashionable shades. Lead-free; Paraben-free.

My Review

This lipstick is gorgeous. It can be full color but can be worn lighter for a more natural hint of color. The color I got was perfect for me and looked great with my fair skin tone. It also lasted a long while which was great and I didn't have to keep applying and re-applying all day.

Nail Polish - Minka: $8

Zoya Nail Polish and Treatments puts beauty, fashion and style into every bottle with innovative custom color creations and fashion trend adaptation resulting in a truly luxury cosmetic experience. Created with the finest quality pigments and finishes, each bottle of Zoya is as special and unique as the woman who created it and whose name graces every bottle – Zoya herself! The award-winning, ultra long-wearing Zoya formula is also vegan friendly and Big5Free*.

*Formulation contains no formaldehyde, formaldehyde resin, toluene, dibutyl phthalate or camphor.

My Review

All I have to say about this nail polish is that I love it. It goes on sheer but after about two or three coats it becomes darker and more pretty which I love. It even stays pretty for at least a week and with the way I treat my nails sometimes that really says something. I have loved Zoya nail polish for a while and I am totally not disappointed with this one. Love this pretty pink color.

Mini Clear Brow Gel: $22

Anastasia’s best selling product is a clear gel for all brow colors that sets, defines, and shapes your brows all day long for a lustrous, natural look. Flake-proof. Film-forming polymer helps define and hold the brow.

My Review

I have to say this was the first time I have ever used a product like this but because I got it in my bag I decided to use it. I have naturally strawberry blonde eye brows so I use color on them anyway to make it to where I even have eye brows. I used this after I put the color and I have to say that I really liked it. It went on very well and make my brows look beautiful and clean looking. Every brow hair stayed in place and it didn't feel gunky or weird, which is what I was afraid of. I can't say this would be something I would personally purchase after I finish up this tube but I will use it more often while I have it.

Concealer Refills: $2.99

Yaby concealers have a creamy texture and are extremely easy to apply. They are highly pigmented to correct any imperfection on the face and body, are creamy and gentle for around the eyes and are tear proof! Vegan friendly and contains no animal byproducts.

The heavy duty metal reusable pans are designed to be sturdy and not easily warped - sanitize empty pans with alcohol and keep some for other special beauty mixing needs!

My Review

I ended up trying this the other day on the dark circles around my eyes and I have to say that it worked great. It had great coverage and I didn't have to use the whole pot to get the good coverage. I have used some concealers that just didn't work or I had to use so much that it felt heavy and honestly could be seen under my final make-up but not this one. It was light and my skin felt great even with my normal make-up. Really great concealer.

May's Pawalla Cat Box Review @PawallaBox #lovethisbox

Hey again everyone!

Sticking to May's monthly boxes I am excited to share my May Pawalla box with all of you.

I subscribe to a wide variety of monthly boxes, which I will be sharing with you all as each month goes along, and I have to tell you that I am loving the boxes I get. With all the goodies I was getting each month I couldn't help but want to share the goodness with my furry pets, my two lovely ladies Alley and Winnie.

I love my kitties very much, probably too much, but I want the best for them. I am always looking for treats, toys, and pet products that does what it says but that is good for them and won't harm them. Pawalla does just that. I get between 6 to 8 different products ranging from food, treats, to toys and grooming products that is designed for cats. But don't worry, they also have a box that is just for you dog lovers too that is filled with quality products for your best friend.

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.

They loved everything in this box and love playing with the rainbow balls. Seriously they run all over the house with these simply little balls. I love the spray shampoo because I don't have to wash it out and it leaves them smelling so good in between baths. Love this box!

So, enough of the chit chat ... I am sure you want to know what came in my box so on with the show.

May's Petflow Spoiled Rotten Cat Box Review #SpoiledRotten

Hey everyone!

So, as you all know by now I am in love with monthly boxes and I have even gotten a few for my pets. Well, this post is going to be for the monthly cat box from Petflow called the Spoiled Rotten Box.

I tried out the Pawalla Box also and I have to say that I did like it better than the Spoiled Rotten box. Before signing up for any of the boxes I did do my research as to what came in the boxes and what a typical monthly box looked like. I couldn't decide between the two so I just got a month of them both. I have since canceled this box and signed up for the Pawalla Box. Anyway, thought I would at least share what I got and why I ended up canceling the box.

My main reason for canceling the box was because it seemed like they liked to send some of the same products from previous boxes in the newer boxes and I have to admit I did not like that at all. When I get a new box I expect new stuff in the box, not stuff I have gotten before. How do I know they were doing this. I watched a few YouTube videos of past boxes and noticed the same thing but didn't think very much about it until I got this months box and noticed a couple of the same things in my box as I had saw in the past boxes. I was not impressed so was glad I didn't purchase anything more than a month.

I will admit though that I did like a lot of the stuff that came in the box and my cats really loved the treats and even the pet food. When it came to the toys it was a mixed bag because they liked them for a while but then didn't have anything to do with them after that. Especially the cupcake looking cat toy. Yeah, maybe if it had a cupcake in it lol they might would have liked it better. Other than the editable, my cats really weren't very impressed with what came in the box. They did love the box itself for a while though. lol

{Product Review} Palmolive® soft touch™ #PalmoliveSoftTouch

Hey everyone!

If you're not a fan of wearing rubber gloves when you do the dishes, Palmolive's new Soft Touch™ Dish Liquids ($2.99 for 25 oz.) promise to pamper your hands while you wash.

When the party's over and you've got a sink full of dishes, what's a girl to do? Pick up her Palmolive® soft touch™ of course! It's the one dish soap that can get the job done without leaving you with hands that look like they've been scrubbing the whole night through.

What I Think

When I got this Voxbox in the mail I had no idea what to expect especially when I saw that it was a Palmolive product.

Normally I use Palmolive Ultra Oxy-Plus, which I love but I was excited to try this new kind.

I love Palmolive for different reasons, one being that it is a nice thick consistency and with it being thicker than other dish-washing liquids I feel that I don't have to use as much to get my dishes sparkling clean.

Speaking of sparkling clean dishes. This stuff worked just as good as I thought it would have while also making my hands feel like I had been into the nail salon and had a skin softening mani. I also loved the scent of the both of the products but my favorite was the coconut butter. It smelled like I was on a tropical vacation while washing my dishes, which is pretty awesome considering I hate doing dishes more than anything. lol

I ended up sharing my soft touch and coupons with a few of my girlfriends after I told them about how great my hands felt after doing the dishes, of all things. They ended up loving this stuff just as much as I did. One friend didn't even do her dishes but added a few drops to a bowl of water and let her hands soak in the mixture for a while as part of her home manicure process. She loved the results and even said that it softened her hands better than most lotions she used.

 I have to agree that for this being a dish-washing liquid it really does what it says while also cutting through the grease just like I expect from Palmolive. I will definitely keep recommending this Palmolive product.

I give this product

Loot Crate's April "Token" Review @LootCrate #lootcrate #love

This months Loot Crate was totally epic and they are getting better and better. So, this Loot Crate brought me back to when I was growing up and when my mom would go to the laundry mat to do some laundry that we couldn't do at home. I would beg to play the games there and my favorite one was Space Invaders. I would play that game for hours and would spend way too much money. It also took me back to all of the time I had spend in my local skating rink playing all of the gaming machines. My friends and I would take turns seeing who could get the highest scores. Ah, the good ol' days.

I am loving Loot Crate and so far I have not been disappointed. I am happy to say that my gaming collection is growing pretty fast. Keep all the awesomeness coming Loot Crate.

Until next month, be sure to subscribe for all of the gaming, geeky awesomeness.

Want to know what came in the box ....

*Disclaimer* Pictures used in this post are not mine and do not belong to me. I am lazy and I haven't had time to take my own pictures. However, this is the same stuff as I received in my Loot Crate with only slight differences.
