Yay for Friday

I don’t know about y’all but this week went on and on and on.  I really didn’t do much at all to be completely honest, I wasn’t feeling well, but it drug on.  This morning was also somewhat cool, which felt a.m.a.z.i.n.g.  So, today’s post is going to be my favorite things about fall!

1- Candy Corn.  You either hate it or love it.  I love it.  Of course, I can’t eat it all the time nor should I but I still love it!

2- Cooler Weather.  This takes a tad bit longer in Texas but I love it.  July & August in Texas is so hot that when autumn comes it is still warm enough but has a little bit of crispness to it.

3- Sweater Weather.  How could I not love this?

4- Pumpkins and Pumpkin everything.  I am not a Pumpkin Latte person but I love the look of pumpkins, I love the smell of pumpkins.

5- Boots.  I cannot wait to pull these out and start wearing them again!

New Wellness VoxBox

I have blogged about Influenster and their VoxBoxes before but I just got a new one in the mail the other day and this is probably my favorite ever.  You can take surveys to qualify to receive a VoxBox and you get to try out new products.

In the most recent box I received:

1- Attitude Shampoo Volume and Shine.  I absolutely loved this shampoo and am more than likely definitely going to be switching.  Just compare this shampoo’s (can also be purchased at target) ingredient list with others on the aisle.  A lot less stuff that you are washing with!

2- Jergens Wet Skin Moisturizer with nourishing Monoi oil. Okay, I was absolutely confused with this product at first.  I thought it was a body wash with lotion.  No.  You apply it after your shower but before you have dried off.  You would think that takes all the nourishing away.  Not even close.  The next day my skin was super smooth.  It may not seem like a ton of time saving but it definitely beats putting lotion on after your shower.  Also, it felt like the wet skin helped with applying the moisturizer.  Pretty sure this is going to be a constant at my house as well.

3- Olay Active Botanticals Refreshing Gel Cleanser.  I used this last night for the first time and LOVED how my face felt and looked this morning.  I am not kidding.  I kept mentioning to Josiah how I felt like my face looked more relaxed, skin smoother, just a lot better than normal by using this cleanser.

4- Colgate Enamel Health Mouth Wash.  I’ll be honest, I am not a huge mouthwash fan (although I should be).  This mouthwash helps to strengthen your enamel that you may miss from brushing and makes your mouth feel clean.  It gets into the spots you may miss from brushing.

5- Urgent RX Pain Relief Powder.  I think these are brilliant.  How many times are you wanting to take an ibeprofen or any pain pill and don’t have water on you?  You can try the spit method but we know that does not work.  These powders dissolve in your mouth and are fast acting.  They come in multiple types (headache, allergy, pain etc.) and work quickly.  I am going to purchase multiple to have on hand, keep in the car etc.

6- Attitude Dishwashing Liquid.  I am as excited about this as the shampoo.  I am not a fan of all of the chemicals that we use in products daily and I love that an affordable company is taking control of that.  Also, check out the Attitude website as they have lots more than just shampoo & dishwashing liquid. They have cleaners, pet care, health care, baby and more.  And you can join their club for $40 and get 40% off all online purchases for a year!  I am definitely going to try out some more products and then probably join!

Thankful | Book Review

 

Thankful by Eileen Spinelli (release date: 9/1/15) is a beautifully illustrated book perfect for autumn and for Thanksgiving.  I love the adorable illustrations by Archie Preston.  They are beautifully illustrated with a cartoon feel to them.  The book encourages children (& adults) to be thankful for everyday blessings.  It goes through different people and what they are thankful for.  From the artist being thankful for color and light to the crafter being thankful for glitter and glue.  I think it is a wonderful book for explaining thankfulness to children and how we can be thankful to God for the little things in addition to the big things!
