1. Favorite breakfast food
If I'm out and it's on the menu, Eggs Benedict or French Toast. If I'm home and in the mood, Pancakes. If I'm not in the mood, some kind of cereal lol

2. Best way to spend a free day
Running some errands if I have to, but most of all, catching up on rest, reading and my many TV shows. 

3. Airline ticket to anywhere in the world....where would you go and why?
Australia! :D I would really love to meet my bff & her little baby boy <3 My second choice would be to Texas so I can see a Dallas game live in their stadium

4. You can only leave the house with one thing...what is it?
If it's a fire or other emergency, my fuzzy babies. <3 If it's just any ordinary day, my fully loaded purse. ;)

5. How do you take your coffee?
From Dunkin, Caramel & Cream (unless I'm in the mood for Pumpkin or Peppermint Mocha). At home, it's already flavored, so just cream/milk :)

Reveal: Julep's Cupid's Mystery Box - Pedi Box

This Cupid's Mystery Box is packed with $75 of pedi-themed polish and product, including a bottle of Aphrodite - Classic with a Twist, a rose with silver metallic microglitter.

We’ve packed three Mystery Boxes full of love this month! In addition to Aphrodite, Pedi Lover, we have Venus, Mani Lover, and Lindy, Makeup Lover. Can’t decide? Grab them all — you’ll get different polish and products in each box.

I wasn't interested in either of the "mani" box polishes (Venus or Lindy), so I went with a "pedi" box with the lovely Aphrodite polish.

Reveal: Julep's February 2014 Maven Box

I was quite intrigued by the eye shadow they had as part of the Maven box for the month. I chose the Classic with a Twist box option with the nude color for the eye shadow.

1. What are your favorite things to do on a lazy day?
Pretty much nothing. I'm 100% lazy on lazy days due to my work week being so hectic some weeks; there is no downtime besides when it's bedtime. I might catch up on my shows I've missed during the week (mainly due to them being on the same time as another show I watch), read, watch random shows on TV with the parents and pretty much just chill. Since my lazy days are usually on the weekends, I still have a couple chores to do like the dishes and laundry.

2. What is your TV guilty pleasure?
I love Pretty Little Liars. It's focused towards the teens and young adults, but I just need my weekly dose of suspense and drama. Love it! And some Fridays, my Mom and I watch Say Yes to the Dress

3. What is your favorite road trip music?
Pretty much what we own in the house. We also have Sirius/XM, which is either on Lithium, Octane, 70's on 7, 90's on 9 or Classic Vinyl. 

4. What are your favorite magazines or books to read by the pool or laying around?
All my magazines are cooking based. Food Network, Cooks Illustrated, Cooking Club & Cuisine at home. 

5. What is your favorite snack?
Cheez-its, pretzel sticks & popcorn :)

Influenster Badge Prizes

As an Influenster, you take surveys, try out and review products, and then they review all the work you've put into your badge. I qualified and received my Colgate Slimsoft Box (reviewed here) and I worked hard to be one of the top badge holders. I was picked as one of the lucky winners to receive a years supply of Slim Soft toothbrushes (4 total) and two different Colgate toothpastes! I certainly loved the new toothbrush and I'm always looking for new toothpastes to try. Thank you Influenster for choosing me to win this box!

As for the Ponds BB Facial makeup cleansing facecloths, it was just a badge by itself, no reviews or product testing. But again, I was chosen as a winner by being in the a top badge holder!

So I tested it out. I loved the feeling it left my skin afterwards. And with having sensitive skin, it didn't break me out! So that's a huge plus for me. I don't wear a ton of makeup. If anything, it's usually just eyeliner or shadow. So to show you how well it worked:

Excuse the quickness of my eye shadow work, this was just a quick showing of how it worked. Without a lot of rubbing and scrubbing, it seemed to take all of the make up off. I also rubbed it around my cheeks and forehead, and it left my skin feeling clean and refreshed. The packaging is a resealable bag with 30 wipes. They come out of the bag with a lot of moisture, ready to go.
