Reviewing Our TLCVoxBox from Influenster

TLCVoxBox from Influenster.com

We received a box full of goodies from Influenster.com for product review and testing. Over the last month we’ve poked, prodded and had a good time with all of it!

Included in our box was the following items: Ivory Soap, Bryers Gelato Indulgences, Neosporin Neo to Go!, Puffs to Go, Shell Rewards Network Card, and Avon ANEW Reversalist.

Of all the products in the box when I opened it, I was most intrigued by the Avon ANEW and the Bryers Gelato. I was weary of the Ivory and the Shell Rewards program.

Fun With Ivory Soap

Colored Soap Cloud with Ivory Soap

We recently received a bar of Ivory Soap from Influenster.com for product testing. After giving the soap a trial run on Megan’s face, we decided to have a little fun with it. Now Megan can say she did a little science during summer vacation.

Creating a soap cloud with Ivory Soap in your microwave is quick, simple and fun!

Avon Reversalist Complete Renewal Express

Avon Complete Renewal Express - A review from an unglamour girl

I am an “unglamorous” girl. My nails are short. My hair is short. I’m happiest in comfy shorts. In short, I like things minimal. When we are going out somewhere special, I don’t mind putting in a little more effort but only just a bit more.

This means I like to get ready quickly. Foundation, eye shadow, eye liner, mascara & blush. Nothing more, nothing less. Well that was until I received my TLCVoxBox from influenster.com.

Included inside my TLCVoxBox was a full sized package of AVON Anew Reversalist Complete Renewal Express Wrinkle Smoother. First of all, that’s a mouth full! It is a finishing cream-to-powder that comes in a portable compact. The compact itself is pretty neat but I’m easily distracted by shiny things.

Review: Handmade by Hon Scarves

Beautiful Scarves - Handmade by Hon

When I won a second giveaway in one week, this one offered by Amanda at Quiet Workings, I was pretty certain I had a lucky clover hiding somewhere in the house. When I saw the beautiful selection of scarves that Victoria of Handmade by Hon offered, I did a little happy dance in my chair. Getting to choose my own prize was indeed awesome!

Because I’m a good mom (patting self on back), I let my daughter pick. I don’t know if she chose this scarf because it was called “Handmade Cotton Candy Ruffle Scarf” or if she chose it because of the beautiful pink colors but I’m glad she chose this one. The colors just pop and when it’s piled up, it definitely reminds me of cotton candy. (Megan loves cotton candy and cotton candy flavored treats.)

Review: From Mama’s Table to Mine Cookbook

From Mama's Table to Mine by Bobby Deen

Recently the Huddles won the cookbook From Mama’s Table to Mineby Bobby Deen, courtesy of Diane at Recipes for Our Daily Bread. This was rather neat for a couple of reasons…

  1. We NEVER win anything and it was the SECOND giveaway we won in a week! WHOA!
  2. We had JUST decided to change the way we eat!!

I couldn’t wait to dig into the cookbook. I love to read them from front to back, marking recipes that catch my eye. The very first recipe in the book, “Bobby’s Pimiento Cheese” jumped off the page at me. Cheese is one of my very favorite snacks and this recipe is a double whammy with cream cheese and cheddar cheese.
