It's been a while since I posted in this blog but I want to keep it alive so from now on I'll post my monthly NatureBox reviews in here. I signed up a week ago for Nature Box using their Halloween promotion where you can get your first box for a dollar. That promotion expired last week but I have my referral code if you're interested in getting a box. I'll post it at the end of this post. Anyway the box took almost a week to get to me and when I got it this past Wednesday and opened it I thought to myself that I wouldn't eat half of these snacks. Your first box is a discovery box where everything in it is a surprise. Here's a list of the snacks, a description of them, and what I thought of them:
Cherry Berry Bonanza-When someone posted on Facebook that these dried berries tasted like fruit snacks they couldn't be more right. I tried these fresh out of the bag and I said to myself, Wow! These are soooo good! These dried berries are divine and will make a comeback in my next Nature Box they're so good!
Masa Crisps-Now I've been hoping I'd get these in my first box and I did. Someone on Facebook said these tasted like Fritos without the bad stuff and they again hit it on the button. These are my favorite snack right out of the box. I already finished the bag tonight after portioning it for an evening snack tomorrow. They're crispy and I love the touch of the flax seeds they give the crisps a good flavor. These will also make a comeback in my next box.
Pistachio Power Clusters-Now these I thought I wouldn't like because I don't like nuts and I'm not used to eating nuts but I gave them a try and they actually tasted good but since I'm not used to nuts I need my favorite beverage to wash them down with. These actually fill you up and give you some energy. I know because I stayed up until 4 am doing homework and only got 5 hours of sleep and had to wake up early to go to school today and I had 4 of these clusters pre-portioned in a baggie and I ate them on the bus this morning. Even though they're good I still don't care for nuts so I will not be getting these again.
Roasted Kettle Kernels-Now this was another snack I thought I wouldn't like but I actually liked them. They have a touch of honey to them and they have a crunch to them and they fill you up as well. I might give these another go in a future box but who knows?
Vanilla Macaroon Granola-I'm not a big fan of granola but when I tried this snack I loved it. You can taste more of the coconut than the vanilla but it's good either way. I might get this snack again.
If you want to try Nature Box out for yourself here is my referral code: KDFC7. When you use it you get $10 off your first box and I get a $10 credit to use toward future boxes.
Until next time guys have a great day and stay tuned for more!

I haven't gotten an Influenster VoxBox since December's Holiday VoxBox and I thought I wasn't going to get another but lo and behold I was chosen for the Sunkissed VoxBox, which included something that wasn't included in a VoxBox before...BB Cream! I was so excited! I've been using a different BB Cream for a while and wanted a change. Here's a picture of the box newly opened:
Dr. Scholl's High Heel Gel Inserts: I don't wear high heels so these got tossed aside. I'm very clumsy in high heels and my mom doesn't like me wearing them(I think she gets embarrassed by my clumsiness).
Olay Fresh Effects BB Cream: I've been wanting this for awhile now but it's never on sale. This covers up everything including red skin, shine, and little bumps on your face. It's definitely my favorite BB Cream by far.
Goody Ouchless Elastics: I wish I still had long hair so I could use these but my mom wanted me to cut my hair for a wedding so these got tossed aside too.
SinfulShine Nail Polish with Gel Tech: I got the color Amazonian which is a dark green shimmer. Not a summer color but I did wear it and it stayed on for a while.
All in all I liked this box. Of course I got all these products complimentary from Influenster to test and give my honest opinion on. The BB Cream rocked as well as the nail polish. Not bad Influenster, not bad.

Here is my unboxing and review of the June Seasons Box.
June is all about diving into Summer and Seasons Box has picked four summer themed items, all eco-friendly, for this months box. Here are the descriptions and photos of each of the items:
So that's my Seasons Box for the month of June. I like that it's more lifestyle oriented this month. I liked last month's box but I wish I got a brighter eye shadow but that's okay. Can't wait to see the preview for July's box. It's probably going to be great as always. Until next time, have a great day everyone and stay tuned for more!

I'm back from a long hiatus that happened due to school and life in general. I'm on summer break and will be taking up blogging again. I will continue blogging as much as I can into the next school year if my classes will allow but I'm taking four classes this upcoming fall semester so I should be able to keep blogging up.
Now, on to a few things. For Elise who won my first and last giveaway I will be mailing your hand brightener out to you on Wednesday. I would've mailed it sooner but finances were tight and school was kicking my butt, plus my sleep schedule was screwed up. So please forgive me and I hope you will continue reading my blogs.
On to blogs. I think I have nine blogs last time I checked so, to make reviews in different categories easier to find I will list my blogs and the types of reviews I will be doing in those blogs. So here they are:

I would recommend this product to everyone that's looking for a natural alternative to those caffeine laden energy drinks. This is an overall good product except for the taste. The link to the EBOOST website is here: http://bit.ly/WrjF6M
