Filippo Berio Olive Oil

Isn't this beautiful in the morning light!? It's like I'm in Italy...

I received this Delicato EVOO free from Influenster and Filippo Berio for testing purposes. They gave me a bunch of great resources and coupons!

I have been a long time fan of FB olive oil of all kinds and I thought the new EVOO kinds were no exception. I think the Delicato is great for a variety of uses like dipping bread into or salad dressing. I'm excited to try all the varieties!

Victoria's Secret Sport

"This is a sponsored blog post. Influenster provided me with complimentary Victoria's Secret products to test and review as part of a contest."

Influenster and Victoria's Secret were super awesome and sent me two items from the Victoria's Secret Sport Collection. I received an "Incredible" sports bra and the work-out tights. I was very excited, these were by far the most valuable items I've received from Influenster so far.

The work-out tights are AMAZING. I love them. I wear them all the time. I already love Victoria's Secret yoga pants, I think they are the most comfortable. Unfortunately, they are not the sturdiest and I wouldn't actually do much more than lounge in them. However, the work-out tights are awesome for working out and seem really sturdy and high-quality.

On to the sports bra...
I don't know if you can tell from the picture, but in general I think the bra just seems kind of weird for a sports bra. I tried it under a variety of shirts and I thought it just didn't look right and most people, including myself, aren't going to the gym in just the bra like the VSX models so... It also just seems like way too much cleavage and push up for working out. It just wasn't what I want in a sports bra.

Unfortunately, when I tried to exchange the VSX sports bra that I received from Influenster at one of my local VS stores, they would not allow me to do that without a receipt or anything (mine didn't come with a price tag, strangely because the pants had one).

On the bright side, I emailed Influenster and the told me to contact VS customer's service.
This is what they sent me:

Woo! Pretty sweet right?! I am very happy with VS's customer service. They were willing to give me a free gift card for something that I didn't even buy. Very nice. So I may try again exchanging the Influenster VSX sports bra when I shop with my gift card. I do think I would like to try VS's "Seamless" sports bra instead, I think that would be more my style.

Thanks Influenster and Victoria's Secret!

I received a free bottle of Skintimate Mandarin Burst Shave Gel from Crowdtap! I don't really ever buy shave gel, so this was a nice treat. I think of shave gel as a luxury more than a necessity. Overall though it was really nice to have and I am excited to keep using the bottle because I think it will last me a while (especially since it's about to get cold real soon). I thought the mandarin orange scent was very nice. The bottle also says that the shave gel is moisturizing, which I found to be true. My legs were smooth and didn't feel try after using it. I thought it worked really well and was better to shave with than just plain soap.

Woo! Thanks Skintimate and Crowdtap!

Influenster #GoVoxBox

As the #GoVoxBox wraps up, I want to share my final thoughts on it. I already posted a review of the items I received from ProFoot.

I received the #GoVoxBox complementary from Influenster from testing purposes.

It included:

Playtex Sport Fresh Balance Tampons
Vitamin Shoppe Next Step Fit N Full Protein Shake and Shaker
Blue Diamond Blueberry Flavored Almonds Blue Diamond Almonds
Profoot Triad Orthodic AND Profoot Pedi Rock
Aqua Spa Bath Salts
1 Voucher for a FREE Muller Yogurt Product from Muller Quaker

Here are my thoughts on everything.

1. Playtex Sport Fresh Balance Tampons
Great tampons. I already like Playtex Gentle Glide and Playtex Sport so these are a no brainer. I only buy certain tampon brands so if I like these you know they are high quality. I don't want to mess around with crappy tampons. These are high quality, comfortable, and secure.

2. Next Step Protein Shake and Shaker
This was awesome to get free because I never would have bought it myself. I loved that they gave me the shaker too because that's something I can continue to use in the future. I only ended up trying the French Vanilla flavored shake so far, but it was great.
- great flavor (I don't even usually like vanilla flavor but this was good and not overpowering)
- filled me up
- kind of clumpy- I didn't mind but I think some people would

3. Blue Diamond Blueberry Almonds
These were delicious and a convenient, healthy, and filling snack.
- great flavor
- healthy
- filling
- easy and fast
- just a tad too sweet for my taste

4. ProFoot Triad Orthotic and Pedi Egg
See my post on these items here.

5. Aqua Spa Bath Salts
I actually didn't try these yet. But they seem cool and smell really nice.

6. Mueller Yogurt
I did not get a chance to redeem this coupon. It was not available at any of the grocery stores that are really convenient for me. I may redeem it if I am in a large grocery store at a later date and I think of it. To be honest, I didn't really make it a priority to try because I have tried Mueller Fruit Ups (I think that's what it's called) before and it was kind of gross. They were giving away cases of it for free, so you know that's not a great sign...

That's it! Thanks Influenster!

Rimmel #InfluensterChamp

I won the Rimmel London badge through Influenster and received the Scandal Eyes mascara!


I received several products for free for testing purposes from @ProFoot_Inc in the @Influenster #GoVoxBox. First the PROFOOT Triad Orthotic.
I like to wear orthotics for arch support since for some reason shoes don't usually have any. These were comfortable and make my shoes more comfortable. They have good cushion and arch support so they're just what I need. I also received the pedi-rock.
Pros: - great shape, easy to hold on to - makes my skin feel soft, feels good on my feet Con: - be careful, it's pretty scratchy, it's good for the tough skin on the soles of your feet but I accidentally hit my ankle with it and it scratched it Overall I'd buy products from ProFoot again!
