me&you.com by KE Payne

Thanks to Netgalley.com and Bold Strokes Books, I had the honor of reading me&you.com by KE Payne. Me&you.com is a a modern YA story about a college student named Immy. Immy has it all- great friends, a boyfriend everyone wants..but something just doesnt seem right. While chatting in a online forum, Immy discovers what was missing.
Me&you.com is a clean story about dealing with the feelings of being sexually confused. It is a honest and interesting look at opening your mind and heart to another person. That both men and woman can be heartbreakers..and that true love just might be right in front of your nose.
I just wanted to point out that I am straight, but I enjoyed this book. I recommend this to any openminded young person. The slang can be a bit difficult for American readers, but after awhile I found it cute.

Time for some reading...

Ok time to stop posting and cuddle up with some books! YAY!

Gillette Venus PRO SKIN Review

I received a Gillette-Venus ProSkin Moisture Rich Razor complimentary to test through Influenster’s VoxBox program - So, Gillette Venus has finally decided to make their version of the Shick Intuition. (the razor that doesnt need shaving cream) I'm glad they did! This is much less bulky and easy to shave with. I did have to run it across my legs a few times and the "shave gel bars" can get pretty slimy. But overall its a great product and it left my legs silky smooth. The only thing I dont like about it is the price. I guess I'm just a frugal gal. Im not really into paying $9.95 for it, However the package states you get 3 razor cartridges. But if buying these means no more shaving cream and beautiful legs...its worth it! http://www.gillettevenus.com

Vitabath In Bloom - Asian Orchid and Coconut body wash review

I recieved the Vitabath In Bloom Asian Orchid and Coconut body wash from my Influenster CosmoVoxBox. First..The smell: yuck! To me it was faintly like bug spray mixed in with a little bit of old lady. Luckily it was faint and by the time I dried off I couldnt smell it anymore. (But if I had liked the scent that would have been a bad thing) anyhoo...the product worked as expected. I felt clean and moisturized. The price for these bodywashes (IN MY OPINION) are not worth it. The are $9.99 for a 12oz bottle. product works good and its apparently "Formulated with: * Antioxidant rich super fruit blend: Acai, Goji, Coffee, Noni, Pomegranate, Green Tea & Mangosteen* Vitamin A, B3, C, E and Pro-Vitamin B5 skin conditioning nutrients enrich the formula. But $9.99 seems way to high for such a little bottle. Id love to try the other scents, but that price is just too high http://www.myvitabath.com

Woo-hoo! I recieved my Influenster Holiday Voxbox invite

I absolutely LOVE influenster! I can't wait to try and review the Holiday Vox Box products!


Yesterday, I somehow stumbled upon this awesome site called Netgalley.com This site lets book publishers send galleys a.k.a advance reader copies (arc) via your computer..which they also luckily send to kindles..in exchange for reviews! So I signed up and requested a few books. So far, Ive had the honor of receiving 2! I will be reading 2 YA (my guilty pleasure) books called me&you.com by KE Payne and Halflings by Heather Burch. Let the reading begin!

a little book review of; Blood Like Poison by M. Leighton

Ive found this author through Amazon and because of the low price and enjoying the sample on my Kindle I bought this right away. I highly enjoyed this and bought many of the authors other books. I posted a review this amazon "Great writing! The chemistry between Bo and Ridley is so strong and well written it almost gives you the chills (good chills of course!)but its not over the top and it is young adult appropriate. This is the first Ive read from this author and certainly will not be the last!! " I highly recommend!

i know that noone reads these but..

Im on a review roll and decided to review something I didnt get from Influenster. I have to talk about Dickinson's Original Witch Hazel Oil Controlling Towelettes. OMG I absolutely LOVE these. My face has been so smooth and glowing ever since I started using these. For years Ive been using witch hazel and Ive always loved it. But Dickinson's must have put something extra special in these. I use them twice a day and feel so refreshed and clean. Mrs Frugal that I am, I do cringe at the price $6.49 for 20 towlettes..but my face deserves the splurge. I guess im just use to paying less than a $1 for a bottle of witchhazel. If anyone reads this...TRY IT!

So, a few months ago I discovered this amazing website called Influenster. Its an awesome site that (if selected) they send you products to try( the products come in a box called a voxbox) ..basically in exchange for reviews. I was honored to be selected to recieve a Cosmo Vox box which included full size Proactive 30-Day 3-Step Skin Care System, Vitabath body wash, and Gillette-Venus ProSkin Moisture Rich Razor. So I was thrilled to try these out! I will post my reviews and pictures shortly
