Influenster Suave Family VoxBox!

By The Crafty Military Wife ©2009-2013. All Rights Reserved.Please report if this post appears elsewhere.
 I received another Influenster VoxBox with complimentary products for me to test and review! This one was the Suave Family VoxBox, and I LOVE Suave products, so I was more than happy to test these products! The coolest part was that they included something for my husband and son as well! My husband has been saying how HE wants a VoxBox (or to test hunting products...lol), and now he got a taste of what it's like! 
We received the following products:
  • Suave Professionals Men 2-in-1 Shampoo + Conditioner (Ocean Charge)
  • Suave Naturals Creamy Milk & Honey Splash Body Wash
  • Suave Kids 3-in-1 Shampoo + Conditioner + Body Wash (Razzle-Dazzle Raspberry)

First off, my husband RAVES about his shampoo + conditioner! He loves everything about it. It smells soooooo good! Like I said, he was really happy that this VoxBox included something for him to try, because he always sees me getting these really awesome products! 
Next, my milk & honey body wash is amazing as well! It smells fantastic and lathers up so well! It leaves me feeling super clean! 
Finally, my son thought his Suave Kids was pretty cool as well. He loves the Smurf on the bottle, and he also thought it was pretty neat to be able to try something out. Again, this product smells great and lathers up really well. The 3-in-1 is super convenient to have everything in one bottle, rather than multiple bottles. It's also tear-free, which is a major plus. 

Bottom line: I love Suave products. I always have. I think their shampoos and conditioners are fabulous, and their products are super affordable and GREAT quality! I will continue to buy Suave products, and I will now be purchasing them for my husband and son as well.

ZonePerfect® Greek Yogurt Bars Review

By The Crafty Military Wife ©2009-2013. All Rights Reserved.Please report if this post appears elsewhere.
 I received a ZonePerfect® Greek Yogurt Bar in my Good Life VoxBox recently. The flavor was Vanilla Berry and it was delicious! It was a little sweet and it gave me a toothache, but it was worth it! It was mid-afternoon and about an hour before I was going to start dinner when I decided to try it, and it killed my hunger until dinner was ready. 
Some things I like about these bars are the following:
  • They taste great!
  • 3 flavors - Vanilla Berry, Chocolate, and Raspberry.
  • 3g Fiber
  • 12g Protein
  • $1.25 per bar
They're great for on-the-go. I drive 30 minutes to and from work every day, so they're a great snack. I will be buying more, and definitely in the Chocolate flavor next!

Diamond Candle Review & Giveaway!! --CLOSED

By The Crafty Military Wife ©2009-2013. All Rights Reserved.Please report if this post appears elsewhere.
 Are you ready for the big ring reveal? The other day I told you I received a candle from Diamond Candles to review and I FINALLY got the ring out of the candle! Do you think it's the big one?
If you're new to Diamond Candles, you're probably saying, "What?! She got the ring out of the CANDLE??" Well, yes. Diamond Candles are like cracker jack boxes for women! Each yummy smelling eco-friendly soy candle has a ring inside the wax! {Don't worry, it's wrapped in foil!} Each ring is valued at AT LEAST $10, and others $100, $1,000, or even $5,000! Pretty sweet, right? You could potentially get a $5,000 ring for purchasing a $24.95 candle. That's a win in my book!
Anyway, in the time leading up to the big reveal, I've had to fight my husband off because he wanted to just dig into the wax for me, and I've also had to resist temptation myself. Then there's the night I had the dream I was addicted to these candles and had candle jars and rings surrounding me {I think it was from stalking all the reveal photos on the Diamond Candles Facebook Page}! Can you tell I've been excited for this?
So I chose Cupcake for my fragrance, but there are many, many to choose from at diamondcandles.com, where these candles are exclusively sold. I lit it up right away and the scent started filling my home. I kept it in the kitchen and it scented the whole downstairs. It's a good smell, but I think next time I'll go with Lavender Lemon, because I love lemon smells. 
It took me exactly 14 hours and 40 minutes of burning the candle to get to the ring. The ring is inside a small baggie and the baggie is wrapped in gold foil to protect it from the wax. I blew out the flame and retrieved the foil pouch with tweezers, wiped it off with a paper towel, opened it up, and voila! 
The ring is in the gold foil directly behind the flame.
The foil was wrapped around the baggie.
Here is my video of the ring reveal.
I honestly was thinking it was probably going to look like something from a 50¢ machine, but I was very wrong because a very pretty ring popped out! I'm fairly sure it's a $10 ring since there isn't any stamping inside, but it's beautiful nonetheless. I might take it to an appraiser to be sure, since I'm not the greatest at figuring out a value for jewelry. The only problem is that I'm pretty sure it's a size 8, and it's too big for my fingers.  

So now onto the giveaway! Please be sure to enter through the Rafflecopter below. Comments won't count as entries. Please also tell your friends about this giveaway and I would love you forever if you would share my Facebook posts regarding it, since Facebook doesn't like to play nice when I mention words like "giveaway" in a post. Only 11 people saw my first post about the giveaway! 
Giveaway starts 8/3/2013 and ends 8/16/2013 at 10:59pm Central Time. Open to U.S. Residents 18+. Winner will be contacted by e-mail. GOOD LUCK!

Diamond Candles - Will I Find a $5,000 Ring Inside?

By The Crafty Military Wife ©2009-2013. All Rights Reserved.Please report if this post appears elsewhere.
I received a Diamond Candle yesterday to review on my blog! I'm so stoked about this! It's a 21 oz. soy wax jar candle that has a ring inside! What girl doesn't absolutely LOVE candles and jewelry?! Every candle has a ring inside, valued at at least $10! I'm not joking! There is a ring in every candle valued at $10, $100, $1,000, or $5,000!! Yes, five thousand dollars! Now do you see why I'm stoked? You can see what rings others have received {HERE}, or check out the company's Facebook Page and see the pictures being posted.
The gold foil circle is the ring!
If you've never heard of Diamond Candles, you can visit their web site to read more about them, or you can watch this short video.
The company was started in January 2011 in Durham, North Carolina and by the end of their first year, they were processing 10,000 candle orders a month! You won't find these candles in stores, though. They can only be ordered online at diamondcandles.com.  
Here are my first thoughts on my Diamond Candle, in Cupcake.
So I will be burning my Diamond Candle over the next few days, patiently waiting to get that ring out! You'll want to stay tuned for the reveal because I will also be giving a Diamond Candle away to a lucky reader, so you'll definitely want to enter the giveaway for that! 
I'll be posting updates on my Facebook Page, Twitter, and Instagram, and you can follow me on all 3! Cross your fingers I get an awesome ring!

Goody Ouchless Ribbon Elastics Review

By The Crafty Military Wife ©2009-2013. All Rights Reserved.Please report if this post appears elsewhere.
 Also in my Influenster Sunkissed VoxBox were these Goody Ouchless Ribbon Elastics. I received them for testing and review. I had my doubts about how they would hold my hair, and even IF they'd hold my hair. My hair is long and pretty thick. But, I tried 'em out, and they hold better than regular old hair ties! I'm impressed! 
I haven't had any problem with them slipping around or falling out. They're made out of a soft, stretchy material, the colors are super fun, and they're pretty dressy with their unique knot style! They even look great on my wrist for those just-in-case moments where I need to put my hair up! They retail for around $3.99 and you can find them pretty much anywhere. America's #1 elastics brand, Goody Ouchless has done it again!

Olay Fresh Effects {BB Cream!} Review

By The Crafty Military Wife ©2009-2013. All Rights Reserved.Please report if this post appears elsewhere.
I recently received my Sunkissed VoxBox from Influenster, and in it was something I've been absolutely DYING to try - BB Cream! This particular one is Olay Fresh Effects {BB Cream!}. I received the shade Fair to Light and it matched my skin perfectly. They sent it to me complimentary to test and review.
Basically what this BB Cream is, is a skin perfecting tinted moisturizer with sunscreen (SPF 15). It offers the following 6 skin perfecting benefits in one step:
  • Refreshes skin instantly
  • Brightens for a radiant glow
  • Evens tone with a splash of sheer color
  • Hydrates for 24 hours
  • Smooths for softer feeling skin
  • Protects against UV damage with SPF 15
I tried it, and it's definitely a keeper! It goes on so light and fresh, and my face feels moisturized, smooth, and fresh, even hours after applying! To me, it smells like Febreze, and it's a little strong, so it takes a little getting used to. I wasn't expecting that kind of scent with this. So if you don't like scented face products, this might not be for you. 
It's perfect for every day use, especially on those summer days out at the lake or hanging around by the pool. It gives you a quick fresh and natural look. It retails for around $12.99 and you can find it pretty much anywhere, including online at the Olay website and Amazon.
