Violet VoxBox

Hope everyone had a great Christmas!  I sure did, but it went so fast with it falling in the middle of the week this year.  I received an early gift this year from Influenster with my 2nd VoxBox.

Goody Athletique Headband
I'm a big headband girl, especially during the weekends.  I have been known to just throw on a headband in the morning & I'm ready to go.  I love how soft this headband is and that it stays in place all day without sliding or needing to be adjusted.  It was a little wide for me, but otherwise it was great!

Sally Hansen New Triple Shine Polish
I was very excited to receive polish in this VoxBox as I love to paint my toes - even in the winter.  The color I received was Statemint - which was a minty green spring-y color.  I decided to give it a try on a snowy, cold Wisconsin day.  I have to say I was a bit disappointed with the coverage, as it needed two coats.  However, it has stayed on really well with no fading or chipping.

This was the product I was most excited to try.  I have always wanted to give SoyJoy a try, especially when trying to eat better.  I received the Dark Chocolate Cherry flavor.  It was not good.  The bar was very dry and I think the combination of Dark Chocolate with the cherry left a bitter taste in my mouth.

Montagne Jeunesse Clay Spas
I did not try this, I have very sensitive skin and am very weary when trying new facial products.  I gave this one away to my brother's girfriend.

Not Your Mother's Clean Freak
When I was opening my #VoxBox and trying to take a picture, my husband grabbed this and asked if he could try it first!  We both have fairly oily hair, so I don't think it was meant to use in the morning when you haven't showered.  I think a better use would be after a long day at work to freshen up before going out with your girlfriends.

All in all, it was really fun to try these new products & share with you my thoughts!

*I received these products complimentary from Influenster for testing purposes.*

I even dream of fabric!

I recently decided that I need to make a quilt for a Chrsitmas gift. Since I'm far behind, I feel like I'm in a rush to get it done in time. Good thing this Wintergreen line for Moda is soooo pretty, I don't even mind dreaming about it :)

Santa's Little Helper

Well my Christmas Quilt top is finished! Tomorrow off to be quilted. Good thing I had this little helper the past couple days. He is quite the cute one if I do say so myself!
