Favorite Color Blog Swap

Favorite Color Blog Swap  

I am going to be participating in another one of Chaotic Goddess Swaps because they are so fun!

This time it is The Favorite Color Swap.

My favorite color is purple, so it will be fun to see a box with my favorite color in it!

The swap objective is to fill a box with at least 5 items that are your partners favorite color.

So I am excited to get brainstorming for ideas for my partner!

DIY: Super Hero Bookcase

DIY: Super Hero Bookcase

 **This post contains affiliate links.

We are redoing Shaun's bedroom. It is no longer going to be a combo of his nursery and his toddler room. We have set into motion his "big" kid room. :( He is growing up so fast. One of his favorite things are Super Heroes. So I took his old book case for his bedroom and gave it a little makeover. That was my first project for his room. Over the next couple weeks, I am going to share the fun little projects that made his room more suited for him. I just wished I took a picture of his room in general before I started the project!

Here is a picture of his book case before. He had already started to pick off the "baby" stickers. That was the first thing I redecorated  for his nursery almost 5 years ago! My first DIY project for him.

Here is what I did, I scratched offer the sticker residue and repainted. I wished I had remembered to take a picture of it painted before I added the finishing details to it.

After the new paint dried, I cut out pictures from comic books that I had leftover from his birthday party. I put modge podge  on the parts then I placed the pictures. Then after I had the entire row glued on, I went over it with Mod Podge  Original Gloss Finish to give it a gloss finished look.

You will even notice that his walls are different in the before and after pictures! Here is a close up of the finished bookcase where the comic book pictures are.

I loved how it turned out, and I am sure you can tell who is favorite super hero is. He loves Wolverine and I am now on the search to add some more finishing touches to his bedroom that features Wolverine. I have some more diy projects I am going to share that I did to his room over the course of this month and May. I am having a tons of fun, and Shaun loves being involved in changing  his room.

This was a little time consuming with the cutting and gluing but I love the end result.

Conscious Box March Review

Conscious Box

March Review

** All opinions in this post are own. I purchased this box on my own during a sale. There is also no referral link in this post.

About: Conscious Box helps you discover the new best non-gmo and natural products each month.

Cost: $9.95 for the taster box (5-8 items) $19.95 (8-12 items)

Billing: Re-billing occurs on the 1st of each month

Shipping: Shipped around the 15th of the month

Discount: The longer month subscription plan offers a discount on the box overall.

My Thoughts:

The box,I loved how cute it was. I decided to save the box for gifts in the future. I even saved that tissue paper because it is adorable! Presentation can be worth a lot to me.

1 Traditional Medicinal Relaxation Teas: Nighty Night Tea: Suppose to help get a good night's sleep without any pills. I gave this to my mother in law, since I don't really need help going to sleep.

Natural Dynamix Kramp Krusher: These are vegetarian gummies that help replenish your electrolytes after a sweaty workout session. I did not like these, they tasted a little to salty for me.

Via Nature Sensitive Care Sking Lotion and Hydration Skin Lotion: Another sample I didn't use. They are just little foil packets, so I put them into a special box that will be shipped over to a military base around Christmas time.

Pangea Organics Pyreneese Lavender with Cardamom Lip Balm, Eye Cream, and Balancing Oil: I loved the lip balm. It lasted couple days, till Shaun discovered it and used it. Which then it got smooshed to the lid when he didn't push it back down. The sample foil packets went into the Christmas military box. I really hope they like samples like these!

Halfpops Aged White Cheddar: Air popped kernels flavored with white cheddar. They were okay, not something I would buy, but was really nice to have on hand for a quick snack.

Schecter's Organic Lite Energy Drink: A natural energy drink made with organic fruit juices, agave nectar, and sparkling water. I didn't drink this because I do not like drinking any type of energy drinks. I gave this to my brother in law, since he likes these types of drinks.

I also wanted to share their info cards. Again, I like the look overall of this box and the information card was very informative. I do like when they give some more details about the products they set you.

Honestly though, I wouldn't have purchased this box if their wasn't an awesome discount for it. I feel like their is value there, especially since the lip balm is valued at $12 and the box is $19.95 with out a discount. I am just not crazy about foil samples and the ones that weren't foil I wouldn't use, except for the lip balm.

Ipsy March Glam Bag Review

Ipsy Glam Bag

March Review

*This post contains referral links and all opinions in this post are my own.

About: Each month Ipsy subscribers will receive a glam bag with 4-5 deluxe and full size beauty products.

Cost: $10 a month

Shipping: Free, Ships to USA and Canada


The bag for March was such a fun design and bright colors. Makes me wish it would become and stay warm. I love getting ipsy bags and putting them in a stock to ship over to a military base overseas, at Christmas time. My brother's best friends wife, every year creates care packages for our military and these would make perfect shower bags for the women that are serving our country. So this hopefully will make somebody happy and a place to keep their items.

Chella Indigo Blue Eyeliner ($24): I will wear eye liner occasionally but never blue. Blue  looks weird on me.

BareMinerals Marvelous Moxie, Shade Rebel ( $18.00):  I love lip gloss and I love this shade. Such a gorgeous color.

Be a Bombshell, Bora Bora Eyeshadow Quad ($16): I am not very big on eye shadow, unless it is neutral colors. These colors are beautiful but again a little to much out of my comfort zone.

 Pacifica Indian Coconut Nectar Body Butter 2.5 fl oz ( $7): OMG I loved this! This was my favorite item. It smells amazing. This body butter seriously is amazing and I can't express how awesome it smells! Best item in the bag!!

I paid $10 for my ipsy glam bag and received $65 worth of products! That is amazing value and I will use 2 out of 4 items in the bag. But that is okay because I can put the other two items up for swap to get something else I will use, or give them as birthday gifts! Win Win, Right?
