Out of Office


Hi Ladies,
Well, I tried to keep up with my posts during the move and start of the new job, but I finally had to admit that I'm beat! I'm going to have to put my blog on hold for a couple weeks until I can get settled and finally start taking some pictures. My next post will be the first week of September. Take care! I'll miss chatting with you. :(

Surf's Up Vox Box Review

Hi Ladies,
I received a Vox Box from Influenster with products to review. I thought I'd share my favorite ones. :)

First Aid Shot Therapy


I really liked this single serving of liquid pain reliever. I suffer from migraines and my doctor always tells me to take Children's Motrin, because it's in liquid form and will be absorbed quicker. Unfortunately, it's so nasty and I have to drink so much of it that I'd rather just wait for the pills to work. (DO NOT try taking the Target brand version...it's even worse!) Anyway, I found First Shot to have a pleasant taste...kinda like what I remember Children's Cherry Flavored Tylenol to taste like. Plus, it's adult strength, so I don't have to drink a cup of it! 

My only complaint is that in includes a pain reliever + caffeine. I know that caffeine can sometimes help migraines, but it can also trigger them. Plus, it's dehydrating. I currently have a migraine routine that works for me, but I would consider buying this if I'm out and need quick relief. It's a little pricey for regular use. I saw it in Walgreens for about $2 a bottle.

Sinflul Colors Nail Polish in Why Not




This new polish company has been getting a lot of press lately. As you can see from my pic below, Consumer Reports says it's better than a $27 bottle of Chanel polish, but is only $2!! While I did love the color, it chipped after 2 days, even though I used it with my L'Oreal Gel Laque. Maybe it was just this color, so for $2...I'd give it another try! :)


CoverGirl Bombshell Volume Mascara 

This is a 2-step "mascara system" that includes a primer. I normally don't like having to do this extra step and have yet to see any primer that made a difference. Unfortunately, this mascara won't be changing my opinion. I felt that it worked as well as the other CoverGirl Lashblast mascaras, which I really love and added a lot of volume. However, it didn't work better than the ones without primer, plus it made my lashes feel dry. It also has to be removed with an oil based remover. :( 

Have you tried any of these products?

Cute Clothes for Walking

Hi Ladies,
Two weeks in my new city has made it abundantly clear that I need some good shoes for walking! I live within a mile of great shopping and eating, but terrible parking. Also, many places are about a half a mile away, which makes me feel really guilty to drive to, and my flip flops aren't cutting it. Firstly, it's kinda cold here and secondly my heels are killing me! So, I've decided to see if I can rock the cute, bright running-shoes-with-chic-clothes-look that I've been seeing for a while. :)

Here are my inspiration photos: (I've pinned a lot more here.)

Here are some of the cute running shoes that I looked at this weekend. I bought the bottom, right pair.


I also bought a bunch of these Zella Live-in capris at Nordstrom. They are really comfortable and slimming. (I would size down though.)
 Any ideas? What is your comfortable, walking outfit?

Take Care!
