Voxbox: J'Adore Box Review!

Hooray for  Influenster's Voxbox program!  I love testing out new items, especially when they are things I can use at Disney World!  A few days ago, I got the J'Adore Voxbox, full of all kinds of lovely goods!  Here's what the box included:
  • Milk Chocolate Hershey Kisses (Valentine official colors)
  • John Frieda's Frizz Ease 3 Day Straight Flat Iron Spray
  • Kiss Look So Natural Eyelashes
  • Red Rose Simply Indulgent Teas
  • Boots Botanics Shine Away Iconic Clay Mask

My favorite item in the box is the John Frieda's Frizz Ease 3 Days Straight Flat Iron Spray.  That stuff is Florida strong!  My hair stayed smooth and straight through the humidity, the rain, and so much!  I am seriously in love.  All you do is wash your hair as usual, spray 7-15 sprays on wet or damp hair, blow your hair straight, and finish with a flat iron.  I'm telling you, this stuff is amazing.  I have a lot of hair, that typically gets caught up in some sort of clip or hair tie,  and usually that means that my attempts at straight hair end up lumpy, bumpy, and not so pretty.  Not with this spray!  I just woke up, brushed my hair out and headed to the parks!  What a HUGE time saver!

I enjoyed snacking on the Hershey Kisses on the drive to Florida.  I would say they'd be good park bag snacks, but even in February/March, the heat of Florida is too much for these little temptations...plus, let's just get real, who would even have any left to carry into the parks...they were all gone!

So, the whole reason I was visiting Disney World was for to run in the Princess Half Marathon.  You can imagine a little R&R came in nice after 13.1 long miles throughout the parks!  That's why I was so excited to get the Boots Botanic Iconic Clay Mask.  I love a good pampering!  This mask works really well.  I recommend you shake up the bottle before opening it, the formula is a bit runnier than other masks I've used, but it quickly dries for an easy and clean application.  Leave it on for 10 minutes and you're left with smooth, soft, skin with the impurities of the day (or a sweaty 13.1 mile run) washed down the sink.

You can't beat a good cup of tea!  I was really excited to see the Red Rose teas.  I'm big tea fan!  This came in especially helpful with my recent sinus infection/head cold.  When it comes to tea, Red Rose has got your cup covered!

I didn't use my Kiss lashes at Disney World, but if I had been there for Dapper Day, I certainly would have!  If you don't know this about me, I am a HUGE, I mean unashamedly HUGE makeup junkie!  I love Kiss lashes!  They look natural, go on easy, and actually I am sort of in love with their lash glue.  I was able to use these lashes on a typical Saturday outting and got tons of compliments.  If you're new to false lashes, try out Kiss, they are super easy to use and they are affordable and reusable.  Maybe I'll do a Disney inspired makeup look with them and post it for you guys... that would be fun, right?

I hope you enjoyed this review of my J'Adore Voxbox from Influenster.  All products were sent to me complimentary as part of the Influenster program.  If you haven't heard of Influenster you should check out their website!

Get Your Turkey On!

Where did 2013 go?  I mean, how is it possible that we are here, with a little over a month until the new year?  I need a slow down button!  Any rate, this year has been great!  I've had the opportunity to continue writing for Chip and Co. and I've recently joined on as a monthly guest blogger on Undercover Tourist!  I've I got to visit Disney World in April and again for my 30th birthday!  Life is good!  We all have SO much to be thankful for!  

Today I'm finally writing a new piece (I know it has been a while, I've been really busy).  So in the spirit of making up for lost time, I'm doing a post all about being a glutton!  It's time to feast on a wordy post since they've been pretty thin lately!  Today we're talking turkey!  That's right, let's talk about what Disney World has to offer when it comes to the Thanksgiving season!

Turkey Here, turkey there, turkey EVERYWHERE!

You really can't beat Disney food!  I love to feast on the fine foods when I'm visiting the parks!  One of my favorite things to do is to try out something new!  I would love to have my Thanksgiving feast at Disney World!  There are a variety of places you can go to dig in.  From picking up a turkey leg for an on the go dinner to sitting down to a bird and all the fixings, Disney World has got you covered.  Need more info?  Check out this awesome post from my friends at Undercover Tourist

Home sweet home

I don't know about you, but when I'm at Disney, I'm at home!  There's something cozy and comforting about Disney World!  I love checking into my hotel and hearing, "welcome home!"  That's why I think that you can pull a Thanksgiving switcheroo and not miss too much!  As long as you're with your family, you are at home...especially at Disney World!


Celebrate in American style as we honor this tradition for our Country.  You'll be able to enjoy the American Adventure at EPCOT and the Hall of Presidents in the Magic Kingdom.  You can take a ride on a good ole' American river on the Liberty Belle in the Magic Kingdom.  I say, why not!  Go America!  

Now is the time, this magic is limited time

Take a little advice from Disney and enjoy this moment!  After all, this moment is only here for a limited time!  Enjoy a unique Thanksgiving experience with the ones you love!  You'll leave ready for the upcoming Christmas season and you'll create family memories that you'll always be thankful for!  

No Kitchen Duty

I'm not sure that anymore typing needs to happen.  If I don't have to do the dishes, sign me up!  Let someone else do the dishes (and the cooking too)!  Take time out of the kitchen and let Disney do the cooking!  

See a parade!

It's not Thanksgiving if you don't watch a parade!  While I usually like to watch the Macy's Thanksgiving Day parade (you can record it), I have to say that Disney knows how to do a parade.  Just think of the possibilities on Thanksgiving day...especially if you park hop!  Enjoy your day with a parade!  

So, are you ready to give THANKS at Disney World?  I hope that this fun list will inspire you during this season!  Stay tuned for more here, on Chipandco.com and Undercovertourist.com!  I hope y'all have a truly blessed Thanksgiving--filled with turkey, family, and plenty of desserts...and of course all the Disney you can handle!  See ya real soon!
