Spring Fling Vox Box

OMG!!! I got my first Influenster Vox Box! I was soooo excited. I love getting free things. Who doesn't?! The best thing about getting a Vox Box is that all the products inside are complimentary from Influenster for product testing. All they simply ask is that if selected, you submit a few social media posts about your Vox Box. Once you receive your Vox Box, you long onto Influenster and check-in then you complete the easy peasy tasks. Check out Influenster for your chance to get a Vox Box. 

Inside the Spring Fling Vox Box:

Rimmel London Scandaleyes Retro Glam Mascara: (Valued at $5.99)

This is MY FAVAORITE thing in the box! I love falsies and mascara!! I was just complaining that I needed new mascara because the current one was NO BUENO! Perfect timing huh?! I love Rimmel. Their high quality products have never left me disappointed. Im excited to use this one for sure!

Kiss Everlasting French Nails (Valued at $6.49)

I love Kiss products! I do not need to go into detail. Kiss products speak for themselves. :D

Playtex Sport Fresh Balance (Valued from $3.99- $4.99)

My go to tampon brand has always been Playtex! I have never regretted any purchase. I'm glad I have these because being a woman is EXPENSIVE!!!!

Nivea Skin Firming Hydration Lotion (Starting at $2.49)

I love Nivea. This brand is so rich. All of their products have been good for me. Right down to the lip balm. I haven't tried this line yet but I am very eager to do so. I'm glad it was a small size because I always keep lotion in my purse. 

Labor Day Movie Air Freshner

Ummmmm, yea ok. :/

My overall thoughts:

I am very very pleased with this box. All of the products are amazing! I am in love with my mascara and I haven't even opened it yet. The Labor Day Air Freshner was a bit disappointing. I would have liked something more useful. Maybe a scented pie candle or pie flavored gum or chap stick. But, I still really appreciate being chosen for one of the boxes. I hope I get another one in the future! :D

Let me know your thoughts!

30 Day Hair Growth Challenge: The ManeChoice

Hello Lovelies!!!

Wow I can't beieve I am approaching my two year mark since my BC this May!! It has been a rocky journey but I'm still here! :D I have wanted to do a second BC, a perm, you name it. But I have grown to love and appreciate my natural hair. I love it! One thing that I think most naturalistas can agree with is that the biggest issue is SHRINKAGE!!!! OMG!!! It took a while for me to get this length and I would like to show it. Ugh! Anyways, I discovered the ManeChoice through my sister. I originally wanted to purchase Hairinfinty but I decided to go with the ManeChoice. Here's some quick background info from the company's website:

"The Mane Choice™ was created by Courtney Adeleye aka CourtneyNaturalHair a science degree retainer and entrepreneur; with research overseen by her husband Dr. Adebowale Adeleye M.D. In 2008, Courtney Adeleye made a life changing decision to liberate her hair from texture altering chemicals and to regrow her hair natural. Throughout her quest to remain chemical free, it became challenging to obtain products to manage and maintain natural hair. She began to research the anatomy of hair and the scientific necessities to grow and retain healthy hair. After innumerable experiments and studies and while using her own hair as the primary research study Courtney & Adebowale obtained the necessary data to manufacture hair products that were advantageous to healthy hair. Her secret is out and she is ready to share The Mane Choice with the world" (2014).

I couldn't believe the photos and reviews!!! I was so shocked and the amount of hair growth that Courtney and these women had! 

I wanted to try for myself. I only purchased a 30 day supply. Most women noticed some growth after just one bottle. If I have a positive experience, I will get on the automated shipments until I reach the length that I desire. I would like my hair to be apl. See the chart below. Currently I am between cbl and sl.

Today is May 1st so I thought it woiuld be easier for me to start on the first of the month. Since vitamins tend to give me an upset stomach I will take them at lunch. I will continue to do updates throughout this month maybe every ten days. You can go to my YT channel to view my corresponding video where I do a length check.

If you would like more information on the Mane Choice, go to there website here. Be sure to suscribe to my YT channel and follow me on Twitter as I will update on those sites more with my progress and reviews. Till next time! Muah!
