Freeman Beauty's BAREFoot Spa Professionals Love It or Leave It #Review

          Influenster & Freeman Beauty sent  me Freeman Beauty’s *New* BAREFoot Spa Professional Line.  So far they have a Moisturizing Massage Cream and an Exfoliating Polish. These luxurious products include ingredients from the sea! (Which sea? I don’t know….but some sea….somewhere….)

Love It: The Exfoliating Polish includes Mica which gives your feet a slight glowy shimmer! It also includes Apricot Oil & Vitamin E!  It feels good and is easy to use! The polish is made of non-abrasive micro-granule which means it’s gentle on your skin!
               The Moisturizing Massage Cream contains Coconut Oil, Olive Oil, Soybean Oil, Aloe Vera & Algae for some deep hydration.  It goes on like a dream!
               This line (and more of Freeman Beauty’s BAREFoot line) is available at Walmart, which means great product for low prices! You can also order these products off of Freeman Beauty’s website.

Leave It: You get a lot of product with a small squeeze, so go easy! I’ve got some rough calluses, so I could use a more intense  exfoliating polish.

Verdict:  If you’re looking for a quality foot product line that has a little something extra, this may be for you! You can check out my Youtube Review here if you're undecided!

BlondieChell's New Living Spaces

          Right now our family is in the process of buying a house (fingers crossed it goes well). This means we’re looking forward to being first time homeowners…. Which means…. REDECORATING!!  We get to design our own spaces! Paint whatever! Wherever! Hang curtains in the middle of the hallway if we wish!!!
             Now here’s one of my dilemmas: I love the idea of an “active living space” as opposed to the traditional living room styles.  Meaning…I want a climbing wall in my living room along with the treadmill (possible swings instead of couch), zipline… climbing rope…. However, this clashes with where to stick the keyboard, family computer & couch that the Hubs won’t trade in for swings…. So, which style would you choose? (Note: I found the following pictures on the interwebs...)

 Active (Okay, I originally thought the brown squares on the wall were climbing wall hand-holds...the more I look at it, the more it looks like duct, imagine this, but a lil more "BlondieChell-style")

   Traditional (plain...boring...yet functional and inviting....)

           We would have the space to make an exercise room too (there’s a small room to the left of the living area), but I really love the idea of having the active living space… and maybe the proposed “fitness area” can hold the more sedentary activities??
           Perhaps I should add that there is a wood stove in the larger space…which means more sweating when others will be trying to keep warm… So I think my question/pondering has morphed into: Which space will be for sedentary activities and where will I stick my treadmill?
            These are the things that keep BlondieChell awake at night (just kidding! This girl knows how to sleep!) To weigh in on our decision, comment below:

TLC VoxBox Love It Or Leave It #Review

This is the TLC VoxBox (From Influenster) Love It OR Leave It Review!

Love It:
         This fantastic Voxbox came with Neosporin Neo To Go, Breyers Gelato Indulgences, Ivory Bar Soap, AVON Anew Reversalist Express Wrinkle Smoother, Puffs To Go, and a (for a total retail value of approximately $43)
         My fav items are the Neo To Go and the Breyers Gelato Indulgences! I used the Neo To Go right away-we took it on a run with the kiddos (and we also ended up rolling down hills) and it sure came in handy! No more leaving the park early or waiting till we get home! Just spray and go!
         The Hubs and I (I shared! I did!) really enjoyed the Breyers Gelato Indulgences during out at-home date night! Soooooooooo good! The commercial doesn’t lie!
          The Ivory Bar Soap has so many uses! It’s more than just a cleansing bar! For tons of ideas, check out Pinterest!
           The first time I tried the AVON Anew Reversalist Express Wrinkle Smoother I saw results! I’m not a daily user yet, but I like what I see!
           Puffs to Go? Who doesn’t love Puffs?? It’s my fav tissue brand!
           Shell Fuel Rewards Network Card saves you $$ at the pump! Who doesn’t love that??

Leave It:
           Breyers Gelato Indulgences can be a bit pricey
           I can’t seem to use the Shell Fuel Rewards Network Card here in Alaska yet. Maybe someday, but right now it’s not a positive for me.
           The AVON Anew Reversalist Express Wrinkle Smoother? I’m still trying to figure it out…apparently, you’re supposed to “pat” it on…that’s what the directions say on the box. No lie!

            Get the Neo To Go, Use coupons/sales for Breyers Gelato Indulgences (unless you’re rich. Then, spend away!) Grab some Ivory Bar Soap and get creative! And don’t forget to toss some Puff To Go in your cart!
