Greatest food scale ever

<a href="http://www.tomoson.com/?code=TOP4741bb4a52e79e27a011b9331b6d47ca" rel="nofollow"><img style="display: none" src="http://www.tomoson.com/images/front/pixel.png" /></a>  I received this IDAODAN Professional Digital Kitchen Scale free of charge from Tomoson for my honest review. When I received the scale I was worried that it was so small and light weight. However, after using every morning to measure out my fruit for my shakes I am happy it is so light weight and small. I didn't want it taking up so much room in my kitchen counter and this scale fits nicely in the cabinets. I had wanted it to have some sort of bowl attachment but again after using it I am glad it does not. I use whatever bowl or cup I have and just place it on top of the scale and zero it out. This works well when I have blueberries that like to fall off the top of the scale. I also like that it gives other measurements besides ounces so that I can measure out pretty much anything I need. I wold totally recommend this scale to any home cook. I have another scale that I plan on donating because this new scale rocks! #CF019  <a href="http://www.tomoson.com/?code=BOTTOM4741bb4a52e79e27a011b9331b6d47ca" rel="nofollow"><img style="display: none" src="http://www.tomoson.com/images/front/pixel.png" /></a>

Marc Jacobs Velvet Noir Mascara Beauty Vox Box

Marc Jacobs Velvet Noir Mascara Beauty Vox Box!

I was so excited to receive this vox box. I have a love affair with mascara! I probably have like 10 tubes of different mascara in my make up box. I could not wait to use it so when I was able to finally use it I was in love! The mascara makes my lashes thick and lushes! My lashes normally are thin and whimpy. I use it pretty much every single day and will buy it again for sure!
I received this for free from +Influenster and +Marc Jacobs Beauty in the #markjacobsbeautyvoxbox #velvetnoir

YSL Rouge Pur Couture Vox Box

I received two different colors from Influenster and YSL. I am fairly dark skinned so I try and stick with dark plum or wine colors. These colors I received were pink and like a pinkish brown color. The cases were sleek and pretty. The colors were smooth and creamy. They really smelled really good and sweet. I knew I wasn't going to ever wear either of these colors but I tried the brown color. It didn't look good on me at all. It went on smooth but it also didn't last very long. It didn't last maybe 2-3 hours. I don't think I would buy this product because despite being smooth and creamy it didn't last very long.

YSL VoxBox

 I received 2 free samples from #influenster of #YSL Touche Eclat Blur Perfector and #YSL Touche Eclat Blur Primer. I had heard of the brand but never bought it probably because of the price factor. I have always wanted to find a new product that would help keep my oily skin oil free! I have tried so many things had have pretty much given up on finding anything. I don't even use foundation because it does not stay on my face more than a few hours. So I was excited to try these two products out. They were easy to use and they made my skin matte all day long! It even helps keep my eye shadow crisp and bright all day and into the night. It is light weight and makes my uneven skin tone even and soft. I am in the market to find a foundation that works with my skin tone. I can't wait to to use these products with that foundation!

Reese's VOXBOX

I received a free sample of #Reese's spreads in the peanut butter flavor from @influenster. I had been holding off on trying this because I have given up sweets for 6 weeks. Today I decided to give it a small try. I would like to start off saying I am not a big fan of PB. My first reaction was "blech, I don't like it" then I thought "hmm, maybe this is not to bad". It really tastes like a Resses's pieces without the shell. Over all I would not buy this again but only because I do not really like PB. I am sure my husband will love the spread because he really loves PB. It is a little high in calories so I doubt we would ever eat or buy again.

Influenster VoxBox #2

I completed my first box and was selected for a second one!! I was so excited to get the email telling me I had been selected for the #TLCVoxBox so as I finished up my first box my second one arrived at my doorstop. It was smaller than I been expecting. It is ok because good things come in small packages!
In this box I got the following for FREE from #Influenster

Shell Fuel Rewards Network Shell @Shell_US/ #FuelRewards
Breyers Gelato Indulgences Breyers @Breyers / #GelatoLove
Puffs to Go Puffs @Puffs / #PassthePuffs
Neosporin Neo to Go    #NeoReady
Ivory Bar Soap Ivory @Ivory / #SudLife
Avon Anew Reversalist Express Wrinkle Smoother Avon @AvonInsider / #AvonANEW

I wasn't to thrilled with getting another shell card as you can get them for free from the actual shell station. I was excited to use the first card until I drove by the station and saw that the price for gas was about 23 cents higher than any other station near me. Even with the discount the price is still higher. I doubt I would ever go to shell unless it was the only place near me and I really needed gas.  I was pretty excited to get the Breyers Gelato coupon as I had been wanting to try this product for some time now. I bought the vanilla caramel flavor and I have to say it was AMAZING! I had to hide it so my daughter wouldn't find it and eat it all! Puffs to Go reminded me of my Grandma she always had some of these in her purse. I can remember sitting in church and looking through her purse for candy and she always had small packs of tissues! I like that you can put them in your purse, gym bag, diaper bag or car and not take up a ton of room. They are soft and smooth! Neosporin Neo to Go is also an amazing product. With summertime upon us it is great to throw in our packs as we head out to mountains, lake or even camping. I don't have to worry about it getting all over everything if it happens to leak. My daughter think it's neat that she can just spray it on her cuts all by herself.  Ivory soap has been a staple in my life for as long as I can remember. My Great Grandma and Grandma always used it. So of course we use it too. My daughter loves it and likes that it floats in the tub. She has always turned it into a boat to rescue her dolls from the water! The Avon Anew is a new product for me. I don't really have wrinkles so I don't really know how it should work. I have tried to use it on areas that sort of have wrinkles but I really don't see a difference. I used it on my husband who has wrinkles and I saw a small difference but nothing spectacular. So I am not really sure I would ever buy this product.  Over all I did like the products. Some I would buy again and some probably not. All items were sent to me for FREE to try and review.

4 days into week one!

So here it is day for of week 1. It's been pretty good so far. I had a hard day Monday with the new eating plan. When I am not "watching" what eat I tend to be an ok eater. I do have my sweets and soda from time to time but it usually isn't an every day thing. The second I decided to omit certain things that is all my brain thinks of. Things I would never eat normally are on my brain 24/7. I know it will get better and hopefully by the end of the six weeks those things won't be on my mind 24/7.

Next week is our first detox week. They SUCK! Mainly because they want us on a sorta liquidish diet. It was really hard the last time I did it. I was a total bitch and felt horrible! This time around I plan on finding some more filling soups for dinner so I don't go off the rails!

On the 18th we have a housewarming party to go to. Which sounds all fun and games until I remember I can't drink or probably eat most of what is going to be there! Which does suck! I will prepare myself before I get there because I don't want to ruin all my hard work.

On the 24th we have a wedding to go to. Which again sounds fun enough but the food and drink are going to kill me there. I don't have much "choice" like I will at the housewarming party. I will again prepare myself by eating a big salad or at least a good shake before we leave so that when dinner is served I won't pig out. Most of the time "wedding" food isn't all that good so I can always hope for that! lol My husband picked my food for me. They had prime rib (blech) and chicken piccata.  Which normally I would have been excited for but I am sure it comes with potatoes and the sauce is usually a lemon butter type. We won't drink because it is near Tahoe and even if drinking was an option we don't usually drink if we have to drink anywhere. 

I have been super sore all week. I wanted to cut my legs off. Today it's not been so bad. My shoulders are sore from all the arm and shoulder work we did yesterday. 

The workouts have been really good. I don't know if they try really kill us during Brik or if the exercises are always this tough? The good news is I haven't wanted to puke during them or after! I am hoping that means I am getting stronger! Our class is a little bigger than it usually is which is cool to have like 17 girls instead of 5! 

The other thing is for the wedding I have to go and find a new dress! ACK! I hate clothes shopping in general but loathe! dresses and dress shopping! I have one dress I could wear but it is probably to big and is more of a evening cocktail dress instead of a spring Tahoe outdoor (I think) wedding. 

Well I am looking forward to next week and all it's challenges it may bring.
