Most Grateful

Here is my obligatory post about what I am grateful for.

I am grateful for my friends and family's support. They are great. They support me no matter if it is a hard day at work or if i am trying to apply to grad school. My friends and family are my best cheerleaders. They believe in me when I do not. They trust in me when I do not. They know I can do it when I do not.

Even my five year old has more faith in me that I do in myself most of the time. He loves me unconditionally even when I don't like myself very much.

My boyfriend is so good with compliments. It may be hard for me to take a compliment, but I am forever grateful that he gives them.

I may not have many friends, but the ones I do have are dear. I appreciate every one of them, even if I do not tell them enough.

My family has always been there with me. Through everything I've been through, my family has been my rock. Always there to lean on.

I am grateful to these people in my life. I should tell them more often.

Eden Fantasys



You know I love Halloween and you probably noticed that it is over. Here in Salem, costumes are worn year-round. You don't need a holiday for an excuse to dress up.

Eden Fantasys has costumes that you are going to want to wear year-round. Inside. It would get awfully chilly outside in these outfits. Right now select outfits are 25% off! Check out the school girl:
School girl bustier - Bustier

I think it is wicked cute. I bet your partner would too ;)

Of course they have more than just costumes. Sex toys, candles, lingerie, and more. I've already shared some of my favorite things. Some of my favorite things are couple's toys. I think this is a great way for couples to come together. It is fun to go online and shop together. There are a lot of video reviews of the products and I like watching them together. It gets discussions started about what each other likes and would like to try.

Eden Fantasys is a great site to buy from. Everyone is super nice and everything is discreet. The packaging is non-descript and the billing is the same. Shopping online is nice because you don't have to awkwardly enter a store full of people and try to have private conversations out of earshot of others. Like I said, there are videos that you can watch that you would not get in a store.

Oh, and use the coupon code: SEXYTHANKS for 20% off sitewide. 

Have fun!

I will receive a gift card for my honest opinions.

Hats and A Kid!


Remember I told you about the hats I've been making? Here are a few of them:


And here is my kid being cute. Excuse the shitty video my phone takes:

Winter Knitting



It is cold outside again, so that means knitting!

I have finished a few hats already. Sorry no pictures. I'm a slacker. Maybe later. And I am working on another one for my sister's brother in law.

My phone takes shitty pictures, but there is my most current hat. It is a much nicer color than it looks. I work on it on the train mostly. I should have it done by Thanksgiving, or at least that is my goal.

I just started working on mittens for myself, too. They are brown alpaca wool. They are going to be the best mittens ever. Hopefully they are done before Spring ;)

Influenster

Have you been to Influenster? They have just launched a new site and it is way easier to navigate.

When you log in, the first page is your profile. Here it is easy to see your Influenster score, your badges, and your fun file, which lists your current VoxBoxes. Do you know about these things? If you qualify, they send you a box full of goodies. All that is mandatory is that you check the box into the website, then fill out a survey at the end sharing how you felt about each product. There are other fun things to do, mostly sharing your favorite products on your social networking sites. And the great thing about it is that you only are asked to share products that you truly like. None of this trying to say something nice about a product you are not crazy about.

Back to the website. Once you click on you current VoxBox, it is easy to see what tasks you can do and it clearly shows you what you have completed by putting a big check next to the task.

What I am not crazy about is the product reviews and information. I feel like if you click on your VoxBox under your fun file, you should have a link to the product information from there. It just makes sense to me. Instead you have to click the heading "Reviews" and then the VoxBox that the product came in. It is by no means difficult, but a little counter-intuitive to me.

That is all, if you want to join you just need to go to Influenster.com to request an invite.

I was not paid in any way for this review. Only the promise of a neato badge that goes on my profile. All opinions are my own.

Hands

Tell us about a time something happened or something was said that gave you the chills.

I get the chills a lot. I feel like a lot of things speak to me. I watch a lot of animated shorts that I find on Boing Boing and they are usually so amazing that they give me chills. Same thing with videos of people proposing. Shit. The chills and tears. For every. single. one.

But what gives me the chills daily is my boyfriend's touch. Every morning he rubs my back as I am trying to get up and it makes me just want to sit there all day. It is truly amazing. His hands are big and strong and, apparently, magical. His hands are full of warmth and love. They remind me of a nice warm blanket on a cold day. They make everything okay.

Love.

Boots No7 Beautiful Skin Review

When I first received my complimentary VoxBox from Influenster, I was a little unsure about the contents. I'm not really into makeup or hair cream, but the Boots No7 Beautiful Skin tubes caught my attention.

Boots No7  Beautiful Skin Cleansing Lotion Normal/Dry
Beautiful Skin - the newest and easy to use two-step range of everyday skincare cleansers and moisturizers, tailored to your specific skin type eliminating the need for toners. Products are color-coded, making it easy to find just the right products for your skin type: Normal/Oily (Pink), Normal/Dry (Green) and Dry/Very Dry (Lilac)

I received a day and a night cream. I put the day one on in the morning and then wash it off. The night cream I put on just before bed and leave it on throughout the night. It has made my face noticeably brighter. My face is definitely less dry than before and a little patch of excema that I had has gone away. It's nothing short of a miracle.

My boyfriend LOVES the smell. He commented once that my face smelled delicious. I have to admit that worried me a little bit :)

I think the price of $8.49 is reasonable on such a great cream. You can buy it on their website. Let me know how you like it!

I received this complimentary in my VoxBox, but all of the opinions are my own.

Someone

I was at an indoor bouncy castle place once with Ryder. I was just hanging out, waiting for him when a couple of kids started fighting. It soon became physical when two boys started shoving a girl. I was shocked. I was even more shocked because someone should have been helping. Someone should break it up, but everyone was just standing around gawking. Then I realized that I was someone. I was someone who could tell these boys to stop. So I did. I jumped in and stopped it. I realized the importance of acting that day. If everyone just stood around saying that someone should do that, then nothing would ever get done. Someone needs to just do it and I try to be a someone who does.
