I know it has been awhile since I have updated my blog but I just want you all to know that all is well.  I pray that you all Have been doing well and are BLESSED!
Well as always, I am here to tell you all about my recent treat that I received absolutely free to test and review from Influenster.  This month I was chosen to review Classico's Organic Tamato & Bail Pasta Sauce. 

At first I was a little skeptical because I am a huge fan of Prego pasta sauce and because when I think of organic, I think of bland, tasteless, health food.  Well to my surprise, Classico's Organic Tomato & Basil pasta sauce nowhere close to being bland.  This is a simple yet very tasty pasta sauce.  I was amazed how such a simple pasta sauce could be full of so much flavor.  You can taste the freshness of the ripe tomatoes and it has the right amount of Basil added to it to not make it overpowering.

This sauce complemented each dish I used it in.  One night my kids requested that I make meatball subs so I figured this would be the perfect time to test out the sauce.  I didn't let the kids know that I would be using a new sauce because I wanted to see if they would notice a difference in the taste.

Well, dinner was a hit and the kids loved the meatball subs.  I asked them if they noticed a difference in the taste of the sauce and only my oldest daughter noticed a difference. She  doesn't like chunky pasta sauces and she said that the sauce was smooth and not full of chunks of tomatoes.  She said that I could buy this sauce from now on.
The following night, it was time to test it out on my husband.  He already know that it was Classico's Organic sauce but he didn't know what it tasted like.  Now, like me, my husband is a huge fan of Prego Meat Flavored Pasta Sauce.  He can't stand any other pasta sauces so I knew this would be a true test.

I made him a nice bowtie pasta with some of the meatballs that were slow cooked in the Classico Tomato & Basil Pasta Sauce, a nice light side salad and a piece of toasted French bread.  I watched him closely as he ate.  He tried to find something wrong with the sauce but he couldn't.  He was please with the taste and he even said that we could start adding it to our shopping list. 
Classico's Organic Tomato & Basil Pasta Sauce passed the taste test of the picky eaters of my house.  I will definitely be adding this pasta sauce to my shopping list and making more yummy meals.  Next up, HOMEMADE PIZZA!!!

*****I received this Classico Organic Tomato & Basil 24oz jar Pasta Sauce to test and review.  This is my honest opinion and I would recommend this pasta sauce to my family and friends.*****

Hefty Microwave Strong from Influenster #HeftyHeftyHefty

     Hello my beautiful people!!!  I pray that everyone is doing well and enjoying the Holidays.  I'm doing FANTASTIC! 

As you probably figured out, I received another Voxbox to test and review complementary of Influenter.   A  few weeks ago, I received a bright orange box in the mail from with Hefty stamped across it. 

     Now I know hefty makes a number of products and this box contained the new Hefty Microwave Strong plates.  I couldn't have been more please since Thanksgiving was just around the corner.

     I couldn't wait to test out these plates because they claimed to be soak proof, crack/cut resistant, and they won't melt in the microwave.  My family and I have used our fair share of paper/plastic/Styrofoam plates and they all seem fail us in one if not all of those things that Hefty claims their plates won't do.

     Well after trying out these plates, I am please to say that Hefty and their product stands true to their name.  These plates are truly Microwave Strong!!!  These plates did not crack on us and my kids didn't cut threw them with their plastic knives.  Even when we reheated leftovers in the microwave, the plates came out in the same great condition and not melted and limp!

     You did not disappoint us Hefty and we will definitely be recommending these plates to all our family and friends! 
Thanks again influenster and Hefty for letting me test and review this product for free.  This is my true and honest opinion of this product.  I recommend that you try it out today!

Cottonelle Clean Care Mega Roll Voxbox from Influenster

Just call me lucky or better yet, call me BLSSED!!!!  Your girl just received another voxbox completely free from Influenster!

As always, my product came package nicely in a lovely influenster voxbox proudly displaying what free brand product(s) await inside

 This box was filled with six rolls of Cottonelle's Clean Care Mega Roll toilet tissue and believe me when I say it came right on time because I was done to my last roll of tissue.

 Even got two coupons with $.75 off my next purchase of Cottonelle toilet tissue!

This was a six pack but by the time my husband snapped this picture I had already placed two rolls in my bathroom.
I'm usually not a fan of soft tissues (shhh, truth be told, I'm a Scott kind of girl) but I must admit this Cottonelle Clean Care Mega Roll tissue left me felling clean.  It didn't leave behind little particles of tissues like other soft tissues and there is really a lot of tissue on each roll.  I can say for a fact that I will be using my two coupons soon.
Thanks again influenster and Cottonelle for letting me test and review this product for free.  This is my true and honest opinion of this product.  I recommend that you try it out today!

L'Oreal Paris Extraordinary Oil VoxBox From Influenster

 I'm so excited about this awesome VoxBox that I received complimentary from Influenster!  This time I was lucky enough to be chosen to test and review the L'Oreal Extraordinary Oil Advance Hair Care System.  So can a shampoo really change your hair.  This one claims to do just that so, we shall see.

I love getting free products to test and review but it's even better when they send the full size products.  No sample sizes over here.  I received three full sized products and a $2.00 off coupon.  I'm such a lucky gal!

First, we have the L'Oreal Extraordinary Oil Nourishing Shampoo.
Daily care for dry, lifeless hair.  This shampoo is lightweight and non-greasy.  Get Lustrous, soft hair in 1 wash!
Oil Complex:
  • Argan
  • Chamomile
  • Coconut
  • Amla
  • Soja
  • Sunflower
This shampoo smells AMAZING!!!!  It gives such a rich lather and it leaves your hair feeling really clean and revitalized.
 Second, we have the L'Oreal Extraordinary Oil Nourishing Conditioner.
Oils and botanical extracts rapidly propels hydration to the fiber and seals the cuticle with a lustrous touch.  Penetrates hair fiber from root to core to tip for healthier hair.  This conditioner smells just as wonderful as the shampoo! This is a rich and creamy conditioner and the oils really do penetrate the hair leaving it feeling and looking refreshed and renewed.

Third, we have the L'Oreal Extraordinary Oil Lustrous Oil Serum.  This is by far my FAVORITE product out of the whole hair care system that I have used thus far (I'm sure you can tell by how much my family and I have used). 
Oil Complex:
  • Chamomile
  • Coconut
  • Sunflower
  • Soja
  • Gardinia
  • Rose
Lustrous Oil Serum instantly absorbs transforming dry hair strand by strand for weightless silky shine.

Lastly, I received a $2.00 off coupon for the L'Oreal Extraordinary Oil Transforming Oil-In- Cream which will complete the hair care system.

Here is a before picture of my daughters hair as well as a few after pictures.  As you can see my daughter has a LOT of hair and I mean a lot.  Her hair is very thick and dry and it usually soaks up all the hair products that I put in it and it still looks dry.  I can honestly say that the L'Oreal Extraordinary Oil Hair Care System really does the job.  It tackled my daughter's huge dry hair and made it lustrous, soft, and silky smooth.  I would definitely recommend this product to everyone!  My whole family loves it.  I even caught my husband using it.
*****I received these products complimentary from Influenster to test and review.*****

Kiss True Volume Lashes: How To & Final Look


     If you read my previous blogs than you know I received the Influenster Jingle Voxbox.   One of the items that I received was a pair of Kiss True Volume Lashes as well as the Kiss Strip Lash Adhesive with Aloe.  I'm not the kind of girl that wears false eyelashes but I was curious to try these lashes out because they looked so natural.

These are the lashes that I received.  They are in the style "Chic".  These lashes are made out of 100% NATURAL HAIR and they have tapered ends which makes them look more natural.

This is the Kiss Strip Lash Adhesive with Aloe.  The adhesive is clear and it is made of a non-irritating formula. This adhesive brushes on allowing you to have a thin and precise glue line.

Here is a before picture of me before I applied the lashes.  As you can see, my lashes are short and not to visible.

The lashes and adhesive are easy to apply, even for a beginner like myself.  I'll show you how I applied them.

Of course you'll need a pair of True Volume Strip Lashes and Kiss Stripe Lash Adhesive.

The applicator brush is thin so you can get a precise glue line on the lashes.
The adhesive goes on white but it dry's clear.
(Oops, I never finished polishing my nails.)

Wait about 30 seconds for the adhesive to dry a little so it can get a little tacky.  This helps the lashes stick easier when you are applying them.

Apply the lashes right on your lash line.  Hold them in place until they dry completely.  This takes about 30 seconds.

Repeat on other eye.

VOILA!!!! That's it!  It's as simple as 1, 2, 3.

Can you see a difference???  I sure do.  For these to be fake I lashes, I think they look really natural looking.  These lashes were so comfortable that I forgot that I even had them on.

Do you wear false lashes???  If so, let me know how I did applying them and if you do anything different when applying your lashes let me know that as well. 

Thanks guys!!! Talk to you on my next blog.

Ore-Ida Extra Crispy Tater Tots Review & Southwestern Loaded Totchos Recipe #OreIdaTotchos #JingleVoxBox #Contest

Hey guys, So I already told you about one awesome product I received in my #JingleVoxBox  which was sent to me completely FREE from Influenster ( check out my previous blog post).  Well, I have another goodie to share with you all and trust me it is truly good. 

So inside of my #JingleVoxBox was a coupon to try any one Ore-Ida Tator Tots product for FREE!!!

My family and I love tator tots and of course anything free so I went to the grocery store and pick up a bag of the Ore-Ida Extra Crispy Tator Tots.  Ore-Ida Tator Tots are made of 100% real potatoes,  They have 0g Trans Fat per serving, they are Gluten Free, and they are a cholesterol free food!!!

I love Tator tots because they are so convenient and versatile.  You can eat them for breakfast, lunch, or dinner and you can serve them up so many ways.  Matter of fact, here is a great meal/snack that I like to make with my tots.

I call these my Southwestern Loaded Totchos!!!! 
The recipe is very simple and easy to make.  Here's what you'll need:

  • 1 bag Ore-Ida Tator Tots of your choice.
  • 1 medium Onion *
  • 1 Red Bell Pepper *
  • 1 Green Bell Pepper
  • ( * I used a prepackaged frozen Fajita Blend which has the onions and peppers pre sliced*)
  • 1 tube Breakfast Sausage (I used Turkey Sausage instead of pork)
  • Shredded Cheddar cheese or cheese of your choice
  • Sour Cream
First, brown your breakfast sausage and set meat aside.

Second, sauté the onions and peppers in the residual grease left over from the sausage.

Third, fry up them tator tots and get them nice and golden brown.  Feel free to bake them if you like.

VOILA!!!! Loaded Totchos. 
Trust me you and your family will love them.  You can also add salsa or avocados or any of your favorite topping.  These are a great crowd pleasure and prefect for game day!

*****Check out the Kraft Recipes Totchos Hub for some other great ides:

Try them out and let me know how you like them.
Have a BLESSED day and be a BLESSING in return,
