25 Days of Christmas (Day 18) - Influenster Review: #SpiceVoxBox


Good Morning Everyone. Even though this isn't Christmas related, I still wanted to share this review with you. I have been pretty behind with the 25 Days of Christmas posts because I had finals and I was also preparing for Christmas. So hopefully by tonight I will be able to catch up. I hope you all are having a great Christmas Eve so far.

Disclaimer: I received these products free for testing purposes only.

 Check them out #Influenster #SpiceVoxBox

1. Yogi Tea - I am yet to try this tea but I have heard nothing but great things about it.

2. Sinful Colors Shine Gel Tech & Top Coat - I have always been using the Sinful Colors brand so I wasn't suprised about the quality because I already knew it would be great and it defiintely was.

3. SoapBox Shampoo & Conditioner - I have never heard about this brand and I have yet to use it.

4. Boots Botanics Hydrating Day Cream - I used this product this morning and I loved the texture of it. I am not a fan of the smell, it is very unpleasant.

5. Not Your Mother’s Whip it Up Cream Styling Mousse - I used this product as well this morning and it worked well with my hair texture which is medium coarse.

6. Good Health Veggie Stix - I have tasted this before and it such a great snack. It is a great way to get in your dose of veggies.

7. Foot Petals "Killer Kushionz" -  I have yet to try this.

P.S. I forgot to take a picture of the veggie sticks so I just took one from the internet

25 Days of Christmas (Day 13) - Dear Santa (Christmas Wishlist)


Good Morning. Happy Sunday!!!

Today I wanted to share with you all something a little more personal. As the years go by my "Christmas Wishlist" changes. Even though I do not believe in Santa Claus I just wanted to pen this letter to him stating some of the things that I wish for.


Dear Santa, 
                  I might not have been a good girl this year lol but here is some of the things I wish for.
It has been so much of a struggle being a full time college student and having a full time job. I have lost motivation, I wanted to give up because I was so over it. I have also failed courses but I have not given up. All I ask is that I am able to pass these last five courses so I can graduate in June 2016, god's willing.
I have started thinking about my future after I graduate and I definitely want to take makeup classes, do a course in microsoft office and definitely do my bachelors. I am hoping that everything can work out.
In one of my previous posts I mentioned that I met someone and have been a relationship with them. It honestly felt like he was the one. But a person's true colours starts to show only when you have gotten with them. So I have actually been single for the past 3 months. So I am hoping to meet someone in 2016 and definitely do things different this time.
And the most important thing of all is that I wish for me to be happy once again. I was always this cheerful person who loves to hang out with friends, go to parties and just overall have fun. But somehow I have lost that part of me and I do hope in 2016 I could get it all back.

Sincerely,
Shanice
