My how I haven’t even thought about my blog… I feel so very ashamed
to admit that especially since at one point it was my baby! It’s
amazing how quickly your focus, direction, and priorities can change.
I come back to you, my dear designpillians, a changed woman.
Naturally, my blog will change as well.
The focus will not be totally on parties or design but I will still
post about these things as the come along. You’ll find that it will
become a bit more random, even a little personal. It will include more
of my day to day, more of my husband’s and my business adventures, and
countless other shenanigans I find myself in. I’ve also decided to
include some videos and vlogs so stay tuned for my YouTube channel!!
I could post about a million things right now but I think one at a
time would suffice. A couple of months ago I watched this Youtuber
whose name I cannot remember at the moment… Sorry!
Anyway, she was doing a review on some products that she had gotten
for free from a website called Influenster. I was quite intrigued so I
signed up in hopes that they would choose little ole’ me to review one
of their Vox Box’s full of goodies! They chose me the very next
month! October and then again for November!! I could barley contain my
excitement. Unfortunately, I didn’t have the time or the energy to
review the products on my blog or to film a video about them so I had
to settle for the mandatory surveys at the end of the month. But
believe me, they were great. Some things I loved and some not so much.
I even gave a few products away to homes that would appreciate them.
I wasn’t chosen to receive the December Vox Box but in January I was
chosen to review a single product.
The product was……
I was so ready for this box to arrive but sadly, it was delivered to
me like this…
Soap was literally dripping from my mail box. I almost cried. All 3
bottles were busted, broken, and worst of all they were completely
empty. Ew. Sucks because the sent the extras for me to give to a friend to try out and now that’s not possible. [insert: Sad face] I would have given one to my sister in law, Charlene and one to my mother in law because I know they both wash dishes by hand only. I’m sure they would have loved it!
To my amazement, all of the coupons they sent me were still in tact. Even though the product was unusable I wanted to try it out, mainly because the
bottles were so dang cute, so I used one of my five $1.50 off coupons
and bought a bottle to try out.
When I got to Wal-Mart my heart sank a little more when I saw that there were only 3
bottles left of one of the scents on the shelf which let me know how awesome
of a product I missed out on. They sent all 3 scents to my house. I
was supposed to give one to a friend but I’m not sure how successful I
would have been in sharing… Anyway, I snatched up the bottle of the
Ginger White Tea scented soap and went on my merry little way.
I ABSOLUTELY hate the look of a big bulky dish detergent bottle on my
kitchen sink so I was immediately pleased by the simple and elegant
design of this bottle. It’s so darn classy. I would seriously buy it
for that feature alone but it gets better.
THE SCENT!!! I’m not very hard to please but when it comes to how
something smells… You have to step your game up. I’m extremely picky
about scents. I love fresh, clean, and subtle scents. I love anything
that smells natural and fruity as long as it’s not overbearing. The point is, this soap was right up my
alley! I could go on all afternoon! Influenster wanted me to reveal my favorite scent of the three but being that I could
literally only try one, Ginger White Tea it is!
It cleans well, my hands weren’t dry after using it, and did I mention the bottle is so dang cute! All in all, I loved this dish soap and would definitely recommend it! If you want to learn more about this product, head over to the Palmolive site! If you get a chance to try it, head over to influenster.com and write a review!
Oh! Just for technicality reasons… I received this product complimentary through Influenster! I was not paid in any way to give you a review! It’s all my honest opinion!
Talk to you soon!
