Friday Things

1.I was excited to receive the Poppy Vox Box from Influenster this week! I even did an Instastory about it! Anyone else feel awkward talking on Instastory or is it just me? Anyways, there is some really great stuff in this box!!! I am a huge fan of Rimmel lip products and I received a full size Oh My Gloss in the shade Master Pink! The smell reminds me of something I used to use when I was a lot longer and I sort of love that! It glides on smooth and leaves my lips feeling soft for a few hours. The color is sheer, but pretty.

There was also a Rimmel Scandal Eyes liner! I am a big fan of drugstore liners, and I had never tried a Rimmel one before. I like how precise the application is and the color is a deep black which I appreciate. The only thing is, I feel like it smudges some and it is most certainly NOT waterproof!! I was able to wipe it away with a wet qtip. I cant even do that with most regular liners.

I was really excited to try the Nyakio Kenyan Face Polish!!! This is a Kenyan Coffee scrub and it left my face feeling super soft!

I didn’t take care of my feet when I was pregnant. Mainly because the last few months I couldn’t reach them comfortably. They are still a disaster. The worst they have ever been, honestly. The 7th Heaven Sock Masque couldn’t have come at a better time! I haven’t actually used this one yet, I will report back.

Who doesn’t love a good in shower body lotion? I can always use the one from Nivea! It has a pleasant smell and I really love how soft my skin feels after using it. Works great for those mornings I am in a rush to get out the door because I can confidently skip putting on additional lotions.

I had never heard of Eva NYC, so I was intrigued when I saw the dry shampoo. I have pretty heavy opinions about the ones I like and dont like. I have to say, I like this one!!! The scent was pleasant and it didn’t leave a white film on my dark hair. I would consider purchasing this, it is half the price of the one I usually buy!

And yay for Tide Pods! The ones I received had downy in them and they smell heavenly! I usually use Honest Company laundry detergent for all of our clothes, but I love these Tide pods for our towels!

Have you used any of these items before? Thanks Influenster!!!

2. For you mamas out there, what is the best sunscreen you have used for your kid??? I wont be putting any on Zoe until after she is 6 months old, but that is right around the corner. I know my mom used Coppertone baby stuff on me and my sister but I have read so many horrible articles about regular sunscreens. It’s hard to know what the right thing to do is? I used Babyganics on myself last summer when I was pregnant at the beach, but I burned in splotches. I am worried it isn’t as good as some other stuff.

3. We finished watching Big Little Lies this week. SO GOOD! It didn’t follow the book exactly, but I really loved the casting and the few new twists to it. Some of you commented that there might be a second season in the works. That would be pretty cool! We have 13 Reasons Why on our list to watch, what else are you guys loving?

4. Did you know that there glitter paint for walls????? I basically want to glitter everything in my house now. Well ok, not everything. But how fun would a glitter accent wall be in my office?!

5. Some funnies to get you through the day! I hope you all have a fabulous weekend!

Today I am thankful for coffee and my fabulous ability to ignore nonsense :

    You really racked up with that voxbox! I loved Big Little Lies, too. It was so good! Happy Friday!

    It sounds like you got some great goodies in your Voxbox, and I hope that you end up liking all of them! Also I’m so glad that you liked BLL! I totally agree that while there were differences, they didn’t take away from the storyline at all. I need to read 13 Reasons Why, but then I want to watch the show too!

    Glitter paint for walls! OMG I have no idea, that is so awesome. I totally want to paint one of my walls in glitter. I love Tide pods, I use them all the time. Love the smell of them. haha Have a great weekend.

    I love instastories… loved watching your unboxing too 🙂
    I’m never that comfortable with my voice on anything #hickvillevoice
    Glitter paint – YESSSSSSS… I imagine it would be a nightmare to paint over though – think glitter nail polish & how hard that stuff is to get off!

    LOVED Big Little Lies. I also finished 13 Reasons Why last week and it was pleasantly surprising. I thought it was gonna be some show for tweens but I got pretty hooked, especially as it went on. It wasn’t a perfect show and there were certainly flaws and frustrations but overall I think it was really good and also really important.

    I have yet to talk on an instastory but I did a time or two when I used snapchat… but I’m one of those people who cringes at the sound of my own voice so I agree, it’s super weird!
    I’m debating whether I should read BLL first, because I do want to watch the series! I have a TBR list a mile long though, so I kinda want to just jump into the show without it. I just finished watching 13 Reasons Why this week… good luck. I had SO MANY EMOTIONS, but overall I think the show was really well made.
    And that last funny….y e s!

    Yay glad you finished up Big Little Lies. Can’t wait to hear how the masque does on your tootsies!! Happy Happy weekend pretty lady.

    I WANT GLITTER PAINT!!!! Teh German is going to give me a hard no when I tell him. I need to figure out a place where I can put glitter paint. Challenge accepted.

    Glitter paint sounds so fun and way less messy than regular glitter, haha. It looks like you got such a great variety of stuff in the influenster box- it’s the best when you get stuff you can’t wait to use! I had such a strong dislike for 13 Reasons Why (the book), that I can’t bring myself to watch the show even though everyone keeps talking about it. I’ll be interested to hear what you think though- I feel like we have similar taste in shows!

    I use Badger or Green Beaver for Kayla.

    That looks like an awesome Voxbox! The hashtag & fuckin shit up ones made me LOL. Have an awesome weekend!

    Glitter paint?! That’s awesome! And what a great box full of goodies! 🙂

  • Reply Lauren @ Oh Hey! I Like That! April 28, 2017 at 7:15 pm

    There’s glitter paint???!!! When baby girl’s room is painted, then I might need to look into some glitter paint for my office, too!

    Glitter paint for the walls?! Oh man… that is awesome. Stopping over from the link up – hope you can hop by my blog too! Have a great weekend. http://www.confessionsofanorthernbelle.com/2017/04/friday-favorites-77/

    I did not know about glitter paint. I still think of hashtags as pound signs. Also, it’s funny how the floppy disk is used as a “save” button in many programs.

  • Reply Emily @ Martinis & Bikinis April 29, 2017 at 1:25 pm

    You got some amazing goodies in that VoxBox. The dry shampoo sounds great. I’m picky as well and only Batiste works for me but I’d love to give it a try since you said it’s inexpensive. What brand do you usually use?

  • Reply StephTheBookworm April 29, 2017 at 2:44 pm

    Oh my gosh…. glitter paint! Wouldn’t match my country decor at all but that is so cool.
    Let us know about that foot stuff. I have horribly dry feet and I’ve tried so many things and nothing works!

    I want a glitter wall!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • Reply Sara April 30, 2017 at 10:25 am

    Glitter paint sounds so fun, but I had a hard enough time convincing the hubs on the metallic paint… so I guess I’ll stick to that for now, lol!! I hope you find something fun to do with it though so I can live vicariously through you!

  • Reply Laura April 30, 2017 at 9:40 pm

    Glitter paint sounds amazing! I love Rimmel makeup! It’s so affordable and looks great!

  • Reply Kate @ Green Fashionista May 1, 2017 at 11:17 am

    Fabulous box! And I was going to recommend Babyganics on Zoe, until I read that you burned with it last year. I’ve been slathering that on Serena, and if we’re outside in the sun she also wears a beachy sun hat and has on a long sleeve swim top. Also check out Honest Company for sunscreen <3
