Ninachuu~ Blog contest entries!

Entries! The theme was "Winter Paradise", The first look interprets what I envisioned as my perfect winter paradise. I saw beautiful icicle castles and cozies with blue fires and fireplaces to keep you warm and toasty.
My second look interprets one thing (of many things) that would make it an absolute paradise, and thats delicious hot cocoa with peppermint sticks! Ideally it would be white hot cocoa but that wouldnt translate right in a look ;)

I know its been a long time, my laptops... not... up to par lets say... ANYWAYS haha those were two looks i photographed of my bling spirit looks! (over top of shadows)

Summer Beauty Voxbox Testing:Part 2

Okay! So I have had the chance to try almost everything now. Onward!

The Sally Hansen Nail and Cuticle Creme : was kind of a bust. The same night I used it, I got COVERED in hives. I will warn that I do have sensetive skin so I cant say im ever surprised when this happens. It doesnt mean it is a bad product. But it goes to show you that testing in small patches is a good idea with ANY product.
I also will say that my hands were indeed VERY soft and moisturized. ;)

The Tampax and Always Radiant Collection : Has yet to actually be tested, I mention in the link what I think so far, and the pouch is def adorable... more in a little while!

The Clear Scalp Therapy Shampoo and Conditioner : ROCKKKKSSSS!!!! Ten Billion stars, I would already have purchased full size bottles if I didnt JUST get shampoo and conditioner before this. I can tell my hair feels nicer, is stronger, and breaks less. I love it. I just will say you MUST rinse well. <3333333 !

The Hawaiian Tropics Sunscreen : I have yet to fully try. I will be laying out sometime this week though.... Until next time!!

* Once again I must mention all products listed here and in linked post were sent to me courtesy of www.Influenster.com and all product companies free of charge for review. My opinions are my own and were not paid for by the companies. ;)

I dont know if I posted here, but I am a (kinda new) Avon rep! I have been working on getting things here and there for myself to show people that avon isnt just for your grandma or little kids. In fact I just got a new perfume from them that I absolutely love. I tend to go for scents like Aquolina Pink sugar... Avons "Secrets to Keep" is a new scent thats right up that sweet alley. I'll probably start posting looks on and off using avon to show you that it can be for anyone!

Like avon but dont have a rep? you can order offline from me! =]

Summer Beauty Voxbox: Unboxing and Starting to test

SO! I finally got my box! In this post you will see pictures of each item (mainly closeups of the labels) and a little review of the ones I already tried. Because I couldnt help munching and putting on some nail polish!!
Please remember that all these items were sent to me courtesy of Influenster for testing and reviewing, free of charge. I will list the retail prices with the photos and item description.

Quaker Soft Baked Bar in Banana Nut Bread: $3.29 for a package of bars
- I did try this item, and didn't really care for it. It was okay, and maybe would have been better warmed up. I prefer Quakers oatmeal to go bars over this, however I did like the big chunks of pecan and almond on top. It gave a nice crunch to the chewy bar.

Sally Hansen Nails and Cuticles Hand Creme: $5.99 for a full size bottle, bottle given to me was sample size
- I have no real opinion on this yet, I did try a bit on the back of my hand but haven't really used it yet. More on this another time!

Tampax and Always Radiant Collection: Prices vary per box and item
- Though I haven't tried this yet I already love some of it. The sleeves that the tampons are in are more like fabric than before (less noisy!) and have a little sticker to open and reseal it, so its more discreet even in the trash. This came with 2 tampons, 3 liners and a pad all in a cute zipper bag (shown through the window of the picture). I will have a more thorough review later on in my second post, and pictures of everything. I will say now I will not be testing the pad, not only do I not care for pads, It is scented... and I am allergic to scented feminine products.

Clear Scalp and Hair Beauty Therapy Shampoo and Conditioner: $4.99-$5.99 for 12.7-12.9 oz bottles
- I received a nicely sized trial bottle of each, this product was a "based on demographics" bonus. I have yet to try them but will start tonight! They claim to nourish the scalp for strong beautiful hair from root to tip. We shall see *eyebrow wiggle*

Hawaiian Tropic Silk Hydration Lotion Sunscreen SPF 30: $8.99 for 6 oz bottle. Available in SPF 12, 30, 50
- I have tried a bit on my arm, its a little too... fragranced for me. But its non greasy and is definitely nice and silky! I will have a better review later on ;)

Sally Hansen Magnetic Nail Polish in Polar Purple: $9.99- WOOOO SO EXCITED! I have always wanted to try magnetic polish. And this is probably the most inexpensive one I have seen. And.... IT WORKS! After the product picture I have photos of my crappy manicure I gave myself. The polish was wonderful; but I didn't clean it up well haha. It was a quickie just to test it.

The product photo doesn't show every true to color, but neither do the mani photos! This shows too red, nails show too blue. Either way, the color is lushhhh. and it was super easy! Paint a base coat on, one coat of color and let dry completely. Prepare by having your hand on something flat (away from fans) and the magnet close. Paint a coat on one nail and quickly hold the magnet over top the nail as close as you can (using the guide at the top) I found holding it for longer than the allotted ten seconds made for a darker and richer design. I did 30 seconds. Voila! This is without a topcoat, but I recommend one for maximum shine and reflectiveness.

Thumb, messy but great!

Whole hand, again messy, but awesome! and fyi, its like tiger eye, when you move your fingers the design moves. its so neat!!

Well thats all for todays post, give me a few weeks for the rest. I get my wisdom teeth out Tuesday =(
In the meantime, sign up with Influenster!!

While I dont want you to forget about the post below with a giveaway (which still has a few days on it!)..
I would like you tell you about the opportunity I was given. Ladygasm toys had contacted me to review 5 of their best selling toys, and as you may have noticed I am not the only one.
I just thought I would let all my blog followers know that the old youtube I practically shut down is back up, and I am currently uploading the 5 unboxing and review videos I did. I also may start to do mini videos on hair and makeup here and there again.

Please understand why I dont generally do videos anymore. For a 3 minute video, it takes me approximately 3 hours to upload. And I must keep the window open, the computer screen to not go to screen saver. Which means I must spend 3 hours online, or 3 hours constantly tapping the touchpad (because even if i take off screen saver, it still eventually falls asleep.) I know I had a HUGE following back in the glittershitter days, and I still love and appreciate all of them, I have 10,000 views on my youtube, and still have 237 of the couple hundred subscribers I used to have.

Anywhoozer, 3 of 5 videos will be uploded tonight, 2 are already up. Check them out please and let me know what you think!

Random giveaway?

I think its time I did a giveaway. It wont be much, but it will be fun!! Since I am very near 50 followers (cool in my head) I think I will set one up in the coming days. Rafflecopter style, for hmm,,... how about a 50% off coupon code to either of my shops!?

Its not makeup related, but some of the qualifying questions may be! Along with questions concerning style, hair, and art! dont worry, most will be opinion and all i really need is that you answer. Sound fun?

Spread the word and lets get pumped!

LOVE Voxbox Product Reviews Part 1

This is a quickie until I can get photos up later this evening.

Part 1! - Ghirardelli Gourmet Milk Chocolate, Venus & Olay Razor, Stash Teas (some of the 9 flavors)

- Ghirardelli -
I am no stranger to this brand of chocolate, but I can say I never went for their plain milk chocolate before. Im a Pennsylvania girl born and bred, we eat Hersheys when we want milk chocolate. So I was a little,... Hesitant I guess? But boy was I wrong.
My first impression was amusement. The bar was large, and if you have ever had their individuals you will understand when i say the pieces that break off are BIG. Hersheys sizes are for babies after this.
It smelled like dark chocolate, thats probably the 32% cacao, but when i tasted it it was just simple creamy milk chocolate. Melty, like smooth silk chocolatey goodness!
5 out of 5 stars!!

- Venus & Olay Razor -
I am dubbing this the "Weekender" haha, I took it to the boyfriends for the weekend to test out. I didn't bring shave gel, but I didn't need it! This thing has 2 huge moisture chunks on it that immediately lay over your skin for a smooth nick free shave. Five blades! I didn't get cut once, which is a miracle for me.
My disappointments...its kinda bulky. Great for legs and pits but not the best for the bikini area. I'd say its good for the bikini line, but if you go Brazilian, it cant get those hard to reach areas. Maybe TMI but lets be honest here haha.
I also don't think it will last too long. I know you are only supposed to keep a razor for x amount of shaves but ill keep mine till it dies (with disinfecting dunks in between), razors are expensive! I feel for this one to last you will have to store it outside of the bathroom, upright to dry in between showers to save the moisturizer strips.
Great razor, great shave... maybe not the longest lasting or for "every" shave haha
I'd say 4 out of 5 stars.

-Stash Tea-

Oh my my my, I love me some herbal teas.
I love that the sampler box seems to have a flavor for everyone. Ranging from simple (peppermint, chammomile) that have just one ingredient, to complex (mango passionfruit, licorice spice)with many different flavors and ingredients. It also has mild, sweet, fruity, spicy, calming flavors. It is a perfect sampler, you obviously get a taste of every kind of flavor.
Now I have yet to try all of them, and can not try the raspberry (allergy), but what I've tried was great!
This never got finished... but heres what I had!

Makeupbee is where its all at

I have been lacking in posting photos everywhere... except makeupbee. Let me tell you why... Makeupbee.com has a program set in to select or add all the products you used. It has a database for it and everything! I find it easiest to post looks there and link them elsewhere. Like facebook, groups, and now here! This is My profile. This is what you have been missing:
