ImPress Press-On Nails

 So thanks to Influenster sending me these awesome ImPress Press on nail I got to test them out.
Influenster gave these to me for free and to tell y'all what I really think about them.

I got the ImPress nails Press-On Manicures. in number 56888 These are a light pink in color with a black sexy lace design over it with little flowers on the top and big flowers on the bottom..

I would love to tell y'all how these wear but I am waiting to wear them to my husbands homecoming :)
these really are beautiful and they look well made. Being a mommy once I do put them on I'll be able to see how they hold up doing hard work haha :).

I love the case these came in. It looks like a nail polish bottle. To open you have to pull the ''Lid'' Off and then you have to open the case up form the side. So there it's much chance of it opening by itself and I just love that.. This comes with SO many different sizes so you should be able to find enough to cover each hand one time and they fit my nails perfectly. On the back on each nail is a thing like a glue dot you just peel the plastic off of the glue dot and then stick it to your nail and then you're ALL DONE. It really is easy to use so if you're in a rush going someone fancy and you're nails look really like crap just grab these and do your nail on the way there.

If you've used these I would love to hear which ones you got and what you thought about them.

Look at what BzzAgent sent me :)

So today my mom when to go get the mail and there was a box for me.
I opened it and I found that it was from BzzAgent now let me explain what that is.

It's a website that sends you stuff to test and you give your review on it and help spread the word on the product. They want you to give your honest opinion so if you don't like something it's okay to say you don't. There is no need to sugar coat anything for them..

So what I got sent to try out this time is from the brand Green Mountain Coffee.
I have a K-Cup brewer so I got sent K-Cups to try.

In this first Pic you can see every thing they sent me. I have the 3 boxes with 4 k-cups in each.

Left upper corner is Wild Mountain Blueberry .
Right upper corner is Extra Bold Sumatran Reserve.
Left lower corner is Vermont Country Blend.
Right lower corner is Colombian Fair.

There is also a coupon on the box for Save $2 when you use this keycode on the The Keycode is PASSIT-ON.
Also on the top of the box is a tear out coupon for Save $1 on any ONE 12-count K-Cup pack box or ONE 10 or 12-oz bag of Fair Trade Certified Green Mountain Coffee.

Now I want to talk about the flavors of the coffees I got.

Wild Mountain Blueberry
This coffee has a odd smell to it. I'm not even sure how to explain the smell of this but it was so bad I couldn't drink the coffee. I did take one chance and took a sip of this just for you guys. It does taste alittle like Blueberry but it's not my cup of coffee haha. I did end up wasting this cup of coffee because no one in my house would drink it :(

Extra Bold Sumatran Reserve
When they say extra bold boy do they mean it. I don't really like strong coffee but this one had a pretty good flavor to it. I do like my coffee with creamer so I put some pumpkin spice liquid creamer in it. I really did enjoy drinking this kind. My mom tried a cup with just reg. creamer and it was pretty good too.

Vermont Country Blend
This one also has a weird smell to it. Kinda like a skunk it made me feel sick smelling it.. Once I added my creamer to it tho the smell wasn't as bad and I cold drink it. So it's not something I would buy for full price but I would drink it again.

Colombian Fair

Now this tasted and smelled like coffee should haha it just had the coffee smell to it. This was truly the best one I got and I will be buying more later on.

Small Target Haul 10/18/2012

SO I stopped by target today to help my mom and sister try and find a costume for my little sister well I also needed to look for fake eyelashes to use with my Halloween costume ( Gonna be a 80's girl ) So When we were walking to the costume section we passed the Make up and I saw clearance and it was ELF. I think I had a mini heart attack :O haha anyway So I saw these brushes were on sale for $1.70 and I was like I have to have these. So I got the Professional Eye Shadow Brush and the Professional Defining Eye Brush If you look at my pics you can see how big and fluffy these brushes are :) I had to try them out when I got home and they work perfectly. I also saw the nail polishes but they only had a few colors. I thought at first that the dark one was black. Well I needed a good dark black nail polish so I got it. The gold sparkle one just kept calling my name '' Carrie get me'' '' Buy me" " You know you need me" haha so I just had to buy it too :) I love both of them now the dark one is really a dark greenish black it looks black inside and dark green outside. It has dark green glitter in it and I have falling in love with the color. I also did find a 3 pack of ELF Eyelashes for $3 and I've tried ELF lashes before and no one but my husband knew I had them on. That is all I got today but I can't wait to go back I just love ELF Have any of you been to Target Lately? Have you tried ELF if so what do you think?

The I used a red piece of paper and I did a spider web ( I know it's not very good) Did anyone spot the little purple spider in the corner?
Next I use a blue piece of paper and I cut out a red Superman shape and I have never done this before and I messed up on it oops :( It will be okay.
After that I use a white sheet of paper and I did the Wonder woman symbol :)
I also added a note on the bottom of the box telling him he is my Hero.

So far here is what I have in it.
1. Sun Flower Seeds in Original and Ranch

home made banana chips

So I made some homemade banana chips to send to my hubby in his carepackage.
1. peel the bananas
2. cut up into thin round pieces
3. put onto dehydrator rack
4. turn on dehydrator
5. wait about a hr and rotate the racks
6. after a couple hrs when the bananas are dry take them off and put them into a plastic bag.

There you go you know have a super healthy and cheap snack :) bananas are cheap and healthy and there sweet so there is no reason to add sugar or anything to them. I saved some to for myself and I added it to cereal and it was super yummy you can put these in oatmill also or eat them alone I'm sure there are other way to use them but my favorite is in cereal or alone

First time candle making

So this is the first time making scented candles now when I was little my mom and I made candles with wax and crayons but for this I wanted to make scented ones.
well let me just say when you light them they don't smell like anything :( So i have to find a way to get the scent to stay in them. I used a double boiler for this and the scented oil sank to the bottom :(

If anyone has any tips and how to get the scent to work right please let me know. I also had some dye wax which made the colors and I use my son empty baby food jars.
Next time I make them I'm going to heat the jars up too so maybe it will look prettier. So does anyone have any tips on candle making?

Look at what my wonderful man sent me

So I'm having dental problems right now and I have to get a root canal done eww so my Husband sent me flower to make me feel better since he can't be with me right now.
I just wanted to share with everyone and I guess kinda brag about how sweet he is.
I loved getting these and they made my day so much better and now every time I look at them I get to think of him. Does anyone else have a spouse that just does random things to either surprise you or to make you feel better?
