Thankful & Blessed

I'm beyond thankful and blessed all year round but I would like to take a minute on this week of Thanksgiving to write a post about some of things I'm thankful for all the time.

1. My family: I have the most amazing family. My mom, dad, siblings, nieces and nephews, step-dad, step-grandma, aunts, uncles, cousins, and my furbabies Davey Eli & Pumpkin are a huge part of my life. I've always felt extremely blessed that I was able to grow up with such a big family. I always looked forward to our holiday parties and family get together's. Growing up with so many cousins was so much fun and I look back fondly on the memories we've made together.

2. My job: Starting at my new job in October has been amazing. I absolutely love it and I look forward to going into work each day.

3. The health of my family & myself : I'm so thankful and blessed that my family and I are healthy.

4. Having a place to live, food to eat, & clothes to wear: It is so easy to take these everyday things for granted but a lot of people don't have a warm place to live, food to eat everyday, and clothes to keep them warm.

5. Livejournal: I'm thankful and blessed that I've met so many awesome friends through Livejournal.

I want to wish you all a very healthy, wonderful, and Happy Thanksgiving! <3

Dr. Scholl's For Her Cozy Cushions

Influenster Review #4 for the #RoseVoxBox: Dr. Scholl's For Her Cozy Cushions

PRODUCT DESCRIPTION: Dr. Scholl's® For Her Cozy Cushions help keep feet warm and dry while providing all-day comfort. Their multi-layer design helps insulate the foot while two plush layers provide extra cushioning. Cozy Cushions help keep feet dry by absorbing perspiration and offer superior support on hard surfaces.

MY REVIEW:
These cushions are definitely cozy. They will be great for the rough and cold winter weather. They were very comfy and I could easily leave them in my shoes all day and be comfortable walking. I would not recommend using this product if you’re going to be indoors for a long amount of time because my feet got really hot. On a scale of 5, I would rate this product a 4/5.

My creative sister...

My fabulous sister has a blog and an Etsy site. She is an amazing sister/wife/mother and friend. She is so creative! She knits, sews, scrapbooks, bakes & cooks. Since I was younger and she got me into scrapbooking, I've always called her "the Martha Stewart" of scrapbooking.

Below is the link to her blog and Etsy site:


I love my big sister so much. She has more creativity in one finger than I have in my whole body. I'm so thankful to have her in my life. Some of my fondest memories of the two of us from when I was younger, are spending the weekends scrapbooking and stamping and making crafts at her apartment and going shopping in town together, especially to the stamping store.

Rimmel London Scandaleyes Retro Glam Mascara

Influenster Review #3 for the #RoseVoxBox: Rimmel London Scandaleyes Retro Glam Mascara

PRODUCT DESCRIPTION: The 60s are back in full swing with a thicker, fuller, wide-eyed look! Rimmel London Scandaleyes Retro Glam Mascara brings you a bold, wide-eyed look, fanned out volume, and no clumps for lashes that are up, out and over the top!"

MY REVIEW: This is my new favorite mascara! The brush is longer than my current mascara’s brush and it makes it much easier to get on without creating a clumpy mess. This mascara really makes my lashes pop and it created a great, bold effect. My lashes definitely looked more fanned out thanks to the volume of the mascara. It was super easy to get off too. I’m ditching my old mascara and using Rimmel London Scandaleyes Retro Glam Mascara from now on! On a scale of 5, I would rate this product a 5/5.

Lindt Lindor Milk Chocolate Truffles

Influenster Review #2 for the #RoseVoxBox: Lindt Lindor Milk Chocolate Truffles

Product Description: Smooth, Melting, Luscious. When you break the shell of a LINDOR truffle, the irresistibly smooth filling starts to melt and so will you. Available in 10 smooth melting flavors.

My Review: This truffle just melted in my mouth. The chocolate was smooth and creamy and was absolutely delicious. The flavor was wonderful and the filling in the middle was so smooth and delectable. I’ve had Lindt Lindor Truffles before so I was very excited to see it in my #RoseVoxBox. I would definitely purchase these again and I love that they added a coupon for a $1.00 off a package. I will definitely be using it. The only downside is that there was only one in the box. What a tease! On a scale of 5, I would rate this product a 5/5.

Belvita Breakfast Biscuits

Influenster Review #1 for the #RoseVoxBox: Belvita Breakfast Biscuits (Cinnamon Brown Sugar)

Product Description: belVita crunchy Breakfast Biscuits are made with delicious ingredients and carefully baked to release steady energy that lasts all morning. They are a good source of Fiber and B-vitamins, contain no high fructose corn syrup, have 18-20 grams of whole grain per 50 gram serving and taste great - perfect for on-the-go!

My Review: This is my first time trying this product. I liked the flavor. To me, it tasted exactly like how a cinnamon brown sugar cookie/biscuit would taste. The biscuits weren’t stale, they were still fresh and crunchy. I’m not a huge fan of crunchy biscuits/cookies/etc., so I was pleasantly surprised that I liked this product as much as I did. The serving size is 4 biscuits and the serving size was filling. The only downside to these biscuits is that they made me very thirsty. Aside from that, I enjoyed this product and I would be interested in buying them in the future and trying other flavors as well. On a scale of 5, I would rate this product a 4/5.
