The Lush Mask of Magnaminty face mask is seriously one of my favorite face masks. This mask smells amazing and leaves my skin feeling and looking fresh and clean. It's made with China clay and peppermint. Aduki beans are added exfoliate the skin, and vanilla absolute is added to calm redness and honey to soothe. I have acne and this is a skin saver! I bought this in August and have been using it ever since!

I am so obsessed with this Too Faced Melted Liquid Lipstick in color Melted Berry! I received this as a christmas gift and have been wearing it a lot lately. It's perfect for my skin tone. I get a lot of compliments on it when I'm at work. The wear is incredible. I can wear it all day, eat and drink with it on and not have to touch it up.

Chomps Meat Sticks, This Seasons Best Meat Snack Stocking Stuffer!

Meat stick snacks are very popular in our country. If you look at the checkout isle of almost any grocery store you will notice a large variety of brands and flavors. Have you ever checked out the ingredient list of many of these products? Many contain stuff that I would just rather not put in my body. Luckily, there is a new healthier alternative to these traditional meat sticks.

Chomps is dedicated to offering a meat stick that is made from 100% grass-fed beef and gluten, soy, hormone, and antibiotic free. Chomps do not contain dairy, MSG or any synthetic preservatives. Chomps Snack Sticks are free of nitrates and nitrates. They are also high in omega 3's and CLA. Instead of harsh preservatives they are infused with celery juice to extend their shelf life. 

These meat sticks are offered in three flavors; Original, Hoppin' Jalapeño, and Cracking' Cran. I really enjoyed the first two flavors. The Original flavor has a nice mix of seasonings. The Hoppin' Jalapeño was a pleasant surprise as well. I was worried that it would be too spicy, but it wasn't. It had very little kick to it. I wasn't really a fan of the Crackin' Cran flavor. The flavor is a bit spicy and a bit sweet. I just don't like cranberries that much.

There are a variety of packages sold on the Chomps website. You can buy any flavor in packs of 5 ($11.25), 24 ($49.00), or 144 ($259.00). You can also buy them in variety packs starting at $145.99. The site is offering free shipping orders $75+. There is a flat fee of $4 for shipping for orders under that threshold.

Salon Quality Mani at Home with imPress Nails!

Last month I was in a wedding. All of the girls decided that we wanted to get our nails done the day before the wedding together. I chose to get acrylics, which is something I haven't had done professionally in probably 10 years. We did dabble with acrylic nails in Cosmetology school but we did them so poorly that they only lasted a few days. Getting my nails done for that wedding destroyed my nails. I left them on for almost 3 weeks because I dreaded seeing how bad they looked. I take pride in my nails, and seeing them look so bad was not fun. I have been using nail treatments to try and make them stronger.

 It has been a little over a month since I got them done and the damage has still not grown out. Nail polish looks just awful on them because of all of the bumps and ridges that were left over. I have recently gotten my hands on two boxes of the new imPress Ulta-Shine Gel Nails, courtesy of imPress nails, I then purchased two more boxes myself! 

The new imPress Ultra-Shine Gel Nails are similar to their other press on nails, but there are a few major differences. These are the only press on nails with the revolutionary SafeHold Adhesive Technology. These secure to the nails like glue. These nails create a waterproof gap free seal. They are the most flexible and comfortable press on nails created. For only $7.99 at Walgreens, these are a steal! There are 24 or 30 nails per box. Each box gives you at least 2 manicures worth of nails. 

The color that I chose to use for my first imPress nail is their Harlem Shake nail:

I find that these nails were extremely easy to apply. In the last year I have been using a lot of nail wraps which claim to be quick and easy to apply, but these imPress nails are far easier to apply. You don't have to apply any heat or cutting/fitting. With the imPress nails you simply use the prep pad to cleanse the nail, choose the press on that best fits your nail, peel off the back, align the imPress nail with your cuticle, and press on! Applying the nails took me under 10 minutes. You should avoid washing your hands for the next 30 minutes. For an extra strong hold you can apply pressure to the nails while you watch a half hour tv show or while reading your favorite book. 

Behind the scenes, a look at the back side of the nail: 

The final look:

Clean up was super simple. There were just the backings for the press ons and the prep pad/file. 

Overall, I am very impressed by these. You cannot tell that my nails are damaged, like you can when I wear nail polish. They stick on very well. They have so many colors, there is something for everyone. I love that they are not going to leave my nails damaged like acrylics. They give the look of a salon quality acrylic nail mani, without the damage or the price. I love how much shine they have. When I got my nails done, getting them super shiny cost me an extra $6! One box of these only costs $7.99 and will give you at least two mani's worth of nails!

I did receive two boxes of imPress nails for free in exchange for my honest feedback. All thoughts and opinions expressed are my own. To learn more about imPress nails you can check out their website here!


Ultra Slim Thin Iphone 6 PLUS (5.5 Inch) Clear Case Soft TPU Cover for Apple Iphone 6 PLUS from MobileEsprit.com

I am in the last stages of trying to pack up my place and move. I will be fully moved out in a few days, but I am busy trying to et everything together, so this will be short and sweet.

I have had my iPhone 6 Plus for over a month now, and I feel like I have been hoarding cases. I cannot have enough, especially when it comes to clear cases. I have the gold iPhone and I love the color of it. Having a clear case really allows me to showcase the color of the phone.

I recently received a Ultra Slim Thin Iphone 6 PLUS from Amazon seller MobileEsprit.com. This case is prefect for "every day use" It is still slim enough that I can carry my phone+case in my wristlet that I got specifically for my iPhone. The material is sturdy enough to protect my iPhone. I found that it was easy to "install" and "remove" from my iPhone. It fits my phone snugly.

All ports are still accessible. I have noticed that with some cases that the holes don't exactly line up so it can be difficult to charge or use headphones, but that is not the case with this case. All buttons remain easy to press and the mute switch is accessible as well.

This case is sold on Amazon for $8.99. To learn more about it or to purchase one for yourself please check the Amazon listing. The photo in this is from the Amazon listing. Once I am all settled in I will come back and upload my own photos.


Iron Chest Master By Ron Williams

I am in the middle of moving, so this is going to be a little short. Please forgive that. I will come back and update this with more information and my own photos when I have the time. I am extremely busy right now.

I am moving into a new place and will finally have a room to turn into my own "home gym". I already have an elliptical, resistance bands, ab rollers, Wii Fit, and so many other devices, when I saw that I could review an Iron Chest Master, I jumped at the chance!

The Iron Chest Master is a complete workout system. This system includes a comprehensive Nutrition Plan, Master Exercise Chart, Exercise Manual, and 5 Workouts to maximize your results in minimal time. You will learn how to build, sculpt, shape, and define your upper body, all with one easy to use machine. With 6 Iron Power Contractor Bands, there is the resistance necessary to build strength in your Chest, Arms, Shoulders, and Abs.

The Iron Chest Master has been scientifically proven to activate 58% more peak muscle than the Bench Press. Combine the exercises of Bench Press, Dumbbell Press, Push-Up, Cable-Crossovers, Pec Deck, and Dumbbell Fly. When using the Iron Chest Master, you will go through the full range of motion like you are mimicking the movement of a bird in flight, this will allow you to rapidly develop a bigger, stronger, leaner chest!

I really love that this arrived fully assembled. There was no need for me to struggle setting it up, like I did with my elliptical machine. It arrived ready to use out of the box. It came with some manuals and a nutrition plan. I found the machine easy to use. I don't have a lot of upper strength, but I do not find myself too sore after using. I will be using this a lot more once I am moved into my new place. I ended up hurting my back while packing a few weeks ago, so I have only been able to really use this a couple times before doing that.

The Iron Chest Master can be purchased on Amazon for $99.00. I received the product for free in exchange for a spot on my blog and my honest feedback. To learn more about this product or to purchase one for yourself please check out the Amazon listing
