Dr. Scholl's For Her Cozy Cushions



I was lucky enough to receive the Rose Voxbox from Influenster a couple of weeks ago. :)
 Which included the Dr.Scholl's For Her Cozy Cushions inserts!
I was super excited to try these out. I have never tried any Dr.Scholl's products, however when I opened the box and looked at these, they instantly looked extremely comfortable.
I have not been disappointed.
The overview of them says: 
  • Helps keep feet warm and dry
  • Multi-layer design insulates against cold and dampness while absorbing perspiration
  • Provides all-day comfort and support good for any season
  • Adds renewed comfort to your footwear
  • Works great in any boot or casual shoe
I agree with all these statements listed. They are extremely soft and cushioned, and nice and warm. I was skeptical at first on if they'd fit into my size 7 ladies Puma shoes.  Puma's are slimmer shoes; but they fit! A little snug at first, but better now.
They definitely help with the cold and dampness, especially since if I step in any water, it almost instantly goes through my beloved Puma shoes.

Overall, I was pleasantly surprised with these inserts, and I would definitely recommend them to anyone.

Rimmel Scandaleyes Retro Glam Mascara



I was lucky enough to get to try out Rimmel Scandaleyes Retro Glam Mascara. I don't usually buy the big mascara's, as they can be pricey and I find that most of them tend to clump ( no matter what their promise is.)
I have to say, that I was hesitant to try this mascara. Then I tried it. Let me just say, that I was instantly impressed. It has a larger brush, that is shaped like an hour glass to hug the lash line,and to really make your eyes pop. It's inspired by the 60's, and best of all..... it doesn't clump! It's also waterproof, but isn't hard to wash off at the end of the day.

I am a mom to a 10 month old little girl, so I don't have much time to set aside for makeup application. With this new mascara; however, I can just do my foundation and then apply some of Rimmel Scandaleyes Retro Glam Mascara, to make my eyes pop, or to just look more awake. I will definitely be recommending this product and using it all the time. It has found a permanent place in my makeup bag.

10 Month Update




Mommy Monday Blog Hop Our little munchkin is 10 months old tomorrow! Oh my gosh,... I still can't believe it. I'm sure every parent says that. Let's get on with it.

Height/Weight: Our little one is 25lbs now, and is wearing size 3 ( sometimes size 4 ) diapers, but it depends on the brand.

Clothes Size: She is wearing 12-18 month pants, shirts and sweaters, and sleepers ( she's really tall ). 12 months in onsies.

Sleeping: She wakes up 1-2 times during the night for a full 250ml bottle and a diaper change, then will go right back to sleep. Since she's been teething, in order for us to get some sleep, we have been letting her co-sleep with us. She seems to sleep much better.

Eating:  She will have about 4 bottles during the day, 2 at night. Z enjoys all different types of baby cereal, Cheerios, apples, she also loves the Gerber vanilla bites., and the cinnamon maple finger snacks. As well as the apple wheels and ranch bites. She seems to enjoy food we eat much more than baby food, and most times I don't blame her.The regular foods that she will eat are: grilled cheese, mac and cheese, bananas, pasta, cucumbers, cherry tomatoes, muffins, mashed potatoes, ( she's tried chicken and beef with gravy ), and we are introducing her to foods a couple of times during the week.

Milestones: She officially has her first tooth! It FINALLY cut through mid October.
- She crawls super fast and all the time now
-Stood on the floor by herself
-Dances to music
-Claps and waves to people

That is the main stuff that I can think of at the moment. She is so amazing, and surprises us every single day
( She also had her first Halloween the other day, and we dressed her up as a pink bunny, it was so freaking adorable.).
