Febuary 2017 Beauty Box 5 Review 

Check out these fabulous beauty products that came in my subscription box from Beauty Box 5. Lots of pink was the first thing I noticed opening this box so that is always a plus for me.

This was such a cute box for the month of February. I love lip products so I was excited to see the lip glow and unicorn lippie and liner. Just the word unicorn gets me excited. True story. 

While writing this review I realized I have been a beauty box 5 subscriber for at least a year now. I can be quite picky when it comes to which subscription boxes I stick with and this is one that I feel is underrated. Full size products for $12 a month. I can not wait for the box next month.

Phil & Ted’s Poppy high chair review 

    We finally purchased a new high chair and I am impressed. This high chair converts to a chair and a few other options. I loved the colors to choose from for the seat also. I purchased this from Amazon prime and I registered the warranty right away. I did have to replace a leg on this high chair and the customer support was prompt about handling it. I am expecting the new leg any day now. The high chair was easy to put together when I took it out of the box. The best part was this high chair was under $100.  I also liked that this high chair looks stylish! 


Chicken stuffed tomato and basil 

Quick recipe idea: get chicken breasts or chicken thighs. I use thighs since they’re usually cheaper and more flavorful to me. 

Preheat oven to 400 degrees. 

Season chicken how you prefer. I used Italian seasoning, seasoning salt, salt and pepper. 

Cut slits in the breasts with a sharp knife. Usually about 3-4 slits is what I can fit. Then put a cherry tomato,basil leaf and mozzarella cheese in each slit. In this pic I actually didn’t use mozzarella and it still tasted great. Brush each chicken with olive oil. 

Bake for about an hour or until chicken is done and juices are clear. 

Serve with sides of your choice and enjoy! 


How to buy jewelry wholesale

I have seriously hit the “jackpot” when it comes to finding affordable accessories and jewelry. I know many people have sensitive skin so other perk to this particular jewelry and accessories is that the items are all nickel and lead free. The biggest perk? The price. You will get each piece for $5 as a customer but you can choose to be able to buy the items at wholesale; making each piece only $2.75. If you purchase larger amounts; you can earn rebates in the form of a paycheck. How neat is that? The company is called Paparazzi Accessories.

The accessories and jewlery are trendy and fashionabale;some of the pieces I have had around 4 years so the quality great for the prices. I also like knowing I do not have lead and nickel in my accessories I choose for myself or as gifts for friends and family. The accessories make wonderful gifts, stocking stuffers around the holidays and last minute ideas for any occasion. There are even items men and children can wear and love.

If you choose to buy at wholesale; you must be over age 18. You will click a KIT to purchase that comes with the jewelry and accessories the company selects for you and business items such as shopping bags. You do not have to sell the products; you can just think of it as a COSTCO membership for accessories. You do not have to sell a certain amount or buy a certain amount each month. You do not have to pay for the website; which is free. You can sell your jewelry online if you choose without any website fees and profit 45% on each sale. You do not have to do parties or leave the house! If you do want to sell the items to make back your yearly investment to keep your account open to buy at wholesale; that is perfectly fine. If you do not want to sell; that is okay! Some consultants for the company earn six-figure incomes from the company; so if you do want to earn income with this business; you can. The company has plenty of free and ongoing training, resources and support.


    If you just love a great deal; you could just do the $99 kit and that comes with your free website to order from and to have if you have anyone who wants to shop from your website and jewelry. Plus you will get your 45% discount for any future orders for one year from your sign up date. You get rebates on larger orders; which is perfect for people who sell in boutiques,salons,expos,flea markets,music shows,festivals,home parties or vendor shows for example. You do not have to sell but if you choose to; you can sell how you want and where you choose;even if it is just online.There are larger kits to select from.


     Shipping is very reasonable and if your order is over $100; it ships free. Your order also ships free the month of your birthday. All other orders under $100 ship for just a flat rate of $5.95. Get started or learn more HERE





Review: Maybelline New York Dream Cushion 

    I was sent a complemtary package to review Dream Cushion from Maybelline cosmetics. These opinions are all mine and I am thrilled to share what I think. 

    I have seen commercials about this product and since I have really enjoyed cosmetics from Maybelline in the past; so I was very eager to try! The dream cushion liquid foundation on the go was easy to apply and took very little time. Since I am a mother; I am not usually interested in cosmetics that are more time consuming so this was a great fit for me. 

    Not only was this foundation not heavy feeling on my skin; the compact has a sponge and mirror included for easy on the go use. I can appreciate that since I travel frequently and prefer more “all in one” style products versus having to keep a separate sponge and mirror for touch-ups. The caramel color shade I tried went on my face beautifully!
