Influenster Fall Cosmo VoxBox!

A couple months ago, I had a friend who shared briefly about how he was sampling all these new items getting shipped to his house for free! Of course I was super curious and I wanted to see what this was all about myself. So I signed up for Influenster, just ’cause; not really expecting much.

But about 5 weeks later, I was so so so excited to receive an email about qualifying for Influenster’s Fall CosmoVoxBox! I had to complete a survey to determine whether or not I was fit to receive this box, and I thankfully passed!

I really got a great first box of goodies and I’m going to review them for you today! ๐Ÿ™‚

What’s Influenster? ย The website defines themselves as “a free-to-join community of invited trendsetters who live to give opinions of products and experiences. Influenster creates links between brands and members to reward participation and influence future products.”

How exciting, right? So let’s take a look at what was inside my box!

First up, I got these two super sweet Pilot Frixion Pens. I thought they were just ordinary ink-y pens until I saw the other end and read the description…these gel-ink pens ERASE! I think these are going to be my new favorite pens!

Second, was this delicious, full-sized Ghirardelli Sea Salt Escape Gourmet Milk Bar! I was so excited to try these…and I’ve got to say…they wereย delicious!! I’m definitely going to be gifting these out this holiday season!

Next…something I’ve been putting off to finally invest in…a full-sized Venus Embrace Razor! I’ve always been a user of disposable razors for their convenience, but lately I’ve been shopping for one of these! Best of all, it came in my two favorite colors, teal and lime green! ๐Ÿ™‚ The sample that came in my Influenster box even came with refills for my new razor! So so so excited to use this. (Stay tuned if you want to know how much I love using it!)

Unpictured, but still a great sample, Bath & Body Work’s Forever Red Fragrance.

So these are all the wonderful goodies I got in my Influenster Fall Cosmo VoxBox. You can sign up for it too and review lots of new products too! Best of all, I was sent all of these items for free! Who doesn’t love free stuff?

What do you think of these products? Are you an Influenster member? Lemme know! ๐Ÿ™‚

& Hope you all have a wonderful, wonderful week!

A College Thanksgiving!

I’ve been so busy lately and I’ve had this post in queue for a week now! So I figured I’d just share it as is. ๐Ÿ™‚ Enjoy! Let’s rewind to about 1 week ago, shall we!

I can’t believe it’s already Thanksgiving again! Although Thanksgiving isn’t my very favorite holiday, it’s still really special to me because it’s what really kicks off the holiday season in my family. ย Thanksgiving in my family means KOST 103.5’s Month Long of Christmas Songs, ham, duck, rice, and other foods us Asians like to eat for festive holidays. But it also usually means lots and lots of time to bond with the family, play boardgames, and to enjoy each others’ company.

This year, however, my parents spent Thanksgiving in Hong Kong where my dad’s side of the family all live at. I was so bummed at first that I couldn’t go with my parents there because I couldn’t miss school, but I was still able to spend my Thanksgiving with family…my college one! My closest college friends (which are friends I went to high school with + my amazing roommate) planned a big Thanksgiving potluck with 15 of our closest friends. We all brought our favorite Thanksgiving dish and the turn out was pretty great! (We had sooo many leftovers.) And even though the turkey came out half cooked (cooked by the guys…) and everything ran behind schedule, we still all had a very fun time just enjoying each others’ company.

Smore Cupcakes

My roommate made these amazing S’more Cupcakes. Toasted marshmallows, graham cracker crusts, just simply delicious!

Thanksgiving StuffingWhat’s Thanksgiving without stuffing?

Thanksgiving Mashed PotatoesAnd an overload of mashed potatoes…

Thanksgiving Gravy

Thanksgiving HamAnd the guys’ Hawaiian ham….

Thanksgiving Golden RetrieverAnd…the cutest dog ever of course!!

ThanksgivingAnd then we started taking pictures on the staircase…we don’t know why but we liked how they came out!

ThanksgivingAnd then Arya joined us…tehehe!

I hope all of you enjoyed your Thanksgivings! I sure did. ๐Ÿ™‚ Don’t forget to follow me on twitter & pinterest for more updates from my posts! ๐Ÿ™‚ How did you guys spend your Thanksgiving!

October Birchbox Goop Box!

This post has been long delayed, but earlier in October, I received my personal favorite of all Birchboxes I’ve received! This was my 3rd subscription month and I was so pleasantly surprised when I cheated and looked at the website early to see what my October Goop Box contained!

Birchbox Goop Box

This month, Birchbox teamed up with Goop.com to bring a collaboration box full of Goop beauty picks! In their monthly “Sneak Peek” video, they rumored that they would be having an Essie polish from their Fall Collection in some boxes. I was so lucky to have received one of the few boxes that had one from the beautiful collection in my box!

Lastly, the lifestyle item for the month — a Luna Fiber Bar, a delicious White Chocolate Raspberry flavored! (People were really disappointed in this, but luckily, I’m a big Luna Bar fan!)

Overall, this was a pretty exciting box! It was definitely a Hit! in my Birchbox Hit or Miss decidernator. ๐Ÿ™‚ I loved every single item in my box and have already been using all of them! Hopefully next month won’t be a disappointment. ๐Ÿ˜ I just gotta wait!

If you’re excited about Birchbox, feel free to sign up for a luxurious box of curated samples. ๐Ÿ™‚ If you sign up using my referral link I’ll be rewarded with points! Thanks in advance ๐Ÿ™‚

And for all those who have been affected by Hurricane Sandy, you’ll be in my prayers. May you and your family have a speedy recovery! God bless.
