I receive lots of packages. Between receiving products to review, prizes I have won in giveaways, and things I have bought online, it really adds up. Most of the packages I receive are delivered through the postal service. This means that my mailman has to deliver a lot of boxes to me. Now if the package fits in the mailbox, GREAT! Stick it in there. I have no problem with that. That way it is completely safe if it starts to rain.

Since I am on the go during the week, I rely a lot on protein/energy bars to keep me going strong. I am sure you all have heard of Balance Bar and maybe you have even tried their bars before. I am always switching up bars, so I eat Balance Bar's products pretty frequently. They actually just created a new product called nimble, which is unlike any other bar out there. Balance Bar says that nimble is the first nutrition/energy bar for woman with a beauty bonus.

So take advantage of it.
After a long day, bath time ends up being my favorite part of the day. It is so nice to soak in warm water, relax, and have some much needed me time. I always have to add something to my bath water, because I love the good smells those kinds of products give off. I recently was able to try Simply Bath Salts. This is a no frill company whose main purpose is to provide high quality organic bath salts. This company has over 20 different scents and really knows how to make a one of a kind bath salt.

Where I live, our Joann Fabrics store recently moved to a bigger store. It is the biggest craft store around here now, and they carry so much stuff! I have said this before, but I really do not have an artistic talent. When I have some free time though, I do like to do something artsy every now and then. So when I saw this template from a company called Social Artworking, I had to buy it. Then this kit has a canvas art pattern and graphite paper that allows you to just trace the pattern onto your canvas. It is perfect for people who cannot draw very well, but still want to create something that they can be proud of.
You know you neeeeed it... Well a great group of bloggers have come together to give it to you!

Since my first half marathon race is only 3 weeks ago, I have been running a lot more to be ready for it. Lucky for me, it has been so warm where I live, so I have been able to run outside. Yesterday the high was around 80. That means I am already bringing out my summer workout clothes. ActivewearUSA.com sells fashionable clothes for active women. They let you look good and feel good while working out. This is the best site I know of to shop for fitness clothing.

I did not know such a thing as Lip Appreciation Day existed. But today is the day! I thought it would be fun to share some facts you may not have known about in honor of it.
If you are a lady, I know this has happened at some point to you before. You buy a gorgeous pair of heels to wear. After you start wearing them for awhile, they start to really hurt your feet and you have to them off now. Sound familiar? I know it has happened to me before. It is such a pain to have to carry around another pair of shoes to wear when my feet are done letting me wear my heels though. Lucky for us ladies, After Flats has solved the problem.

If I am going to buy a new product, I like to read real people’s reviews before I purchase it. There are just so many products out there that I like to see what other people have said about it. I found this awesome beauty app called Total Beauty and is filled with people’s unbiased review of products. This app has over 45,000 products listed and 280,000 reviews! This app is available for iPhone or Android phones.
I have actually only gotten into mineral makeup not too long ago. I remember one day I was at the store and spontaneously decided to try some out. Since then I have tried different brands to find the perfect makeup for me. I think I have tried my favorite mineral makeup yet. All of Jenulence offers makeup that is 100% natural, biodegradable, environmentally friendly, and never tested on animals. Plus their makeup works so well and lasts me all day.

Spring is not too far away, and I cannot wait. It will be such a relief when there will be no more cold weather. We will be having spring temperatures here in Illinois these next couple of days. I am very excited about that, so I figured I would share why I am so excited about spring.

If you have not heard of CafePress before, you have been missing out. This online store has all my favorite characteristics. There is a huge selection, there is something for everyone, you are able to personalize/customize a lot of items, you will find items that are not sold in stores, lots of unique items, deals are always going on, and the prices are affordable even without the deals. I cannot even begin to list all the products CafePress sells because there are just WAY to many. I was able to review three different items which will give you a little idea on the different products this company sells!

Now SkinB5 is not like your typical acne system kit. This company has created natural products to fight acne to help maintain healthy skin from the inside of your body out. SkinB5 contains Vitamin B5 which is proven to be effective in treating the production of Sebum, the main cause of acne breakouts.
If you were like me, I am sure you are thinking what in the world is a myubby!? Well I did some investigating to figure out what it is. The owner of this company decided to create a special unique blanket for her new son. Her son ended up calling his blanket "ubby" and the name stuck. Now myubby is a company that makes personalized and unique blankets, but YOU really are the one that creates the blanket!

Well I was talked into signing up for a half marathon. A friend of mine wanted me to run in a local half marathon with her that is coming up on April 7th. My first thought was that she is crazy. Does she not realize who she is talking to!? The longest race I have competed in is a 5K. The half marathon is 10 miles longer than that. That is a huge difference. Sure we have run together before, but not 13 miles!

With it being winter time, the air is so dry where I live. Humidifiers are a necessity to add extra moisture in the air. I use to always use a humidifier when I was a lot younger to prevent nose bleeds. There are some extra benefits that humidifiers provide that I was not aware of. The extra moistures allows for a better night’s sleep, relives cough and flu symptoms, relives sinus irritation, relieves dry skin, and more!

Changing a strand of my hair to a fun color is actually something I have not thought of. I guess the reason I have never thought of it before, is because I do not want a strand of my hair to be dyed for a week, months, or until it grows out. When I first saw Hair Flairs Color Rub, the first thing I noticed is that it is not permanent at all. It washes out in the shower! This line of hair color comes in 9 different bright colors and it rubs right into your hair.

When I go to the beach, I always write my name in the sand. It is just one of those things I do when I get to go to the ocean. But since I live in the Midwest, I do not get to see the ocean often. This is why I am excited to have learned of this unique company. Nature's Notebook takes personalized photos of names or words in the sand. The best part about it is that Courtney Noelle takes amazing photos and really captures the beauty of the beach and ocean.
