Unboxing: Influenster Sugar 'N Spice Voxbox 2013

Last month I received an email that made me super excited. It was from Influenster saying that I was going to receive another voxbox full of products to test out. This is my third box since I joined last year and after my last box (dish soap) I kept wondering what I would be getting. No more need to wonder as I finally received it and I am completely overjoyed by what I got. I cannot wait to try out these products since quite a few of them I have been wanting to buy anyways. I had to laugh though when I saw the toothbrush because the day before I had bought a brand new one, lol. 

How To Make Easter Confetti Eggs

My son & I are absolutely obsessed with these confetti eggs that we found for the first time this year in the Easter section. After buying a dozen for $2 bucks a pop (and I bought a lot at first) I figured why not learn how to make them myself. They are super easy to make and even better I am reusing the egg shells that just normally get tossed away.

I know, I know, this post is ridiculously late but I always say late is better than never. Since my March box will be here in the next few days I figured it would be best if I get this up now instead of doing both at the same time. The oohh and awweee has totally worn away since unboxings of last months box have been up everywhere for a long while now but hey, I can oohhh and awwwhhh years from now right? :)

Have you heard about Google getting rid of Google Reader on July 1st? If not than they have a post here that you can read all about it! Since this is happening it might be a good idea to merge the blogs that you are following with a reader like bloglovin so you don't miss any posts. Since I merged all of mine with bloglovin last night I decided to make a tutorial for you guys just in case you didn't know yet.

I made this Easter word search because I really enjoyed making my St. Patrick's Day word search  so I thought I would give it a go and make another one. I hope you like this Easter word search as much as the St. Patrick's Day word search because I had a lot of fun creating it for you. 

My 73 year old grandmother loved it and gave it the seal of approval and asked that I keep making her more word searches. Enjoy and don't forget to share with your friends & family.

Book Review | Nancy Drew Diaries-Curse of the Arctic Storm

      Now, I know what you are probably saying right now seeing this post. But yes, I really am doing a book review on a Nancy Drew book. Why not? I love these books and always have ever since I was much younger. Much? hahha I'm not that old lol. I even have numerous boxes in my garage that are full of different Nancy Drew books. Some things from your childhood just stick with ya. Did you know that the author's name Carolyn Keene was not actually a real person but was actually a pseudonym and the Nancy Drew books were and are actually written by various different people (ghost authors)? Interesting little fact there eh.


St. Patrick's Day Parade in Henderson, Nevada

Saturday was not only the eve of St. Patrick's day but it was also Henderson's annual parade for the holiday. This was the first time that I've ever been to it since I moved here in 1994. And really, I was not missing anything. It was great to get out of the house but it was just a total let down. There was also a carnival and vendors so I was hoping to have a great day with my son. Sadly my hopes or more likely my standards were just too high.

 This was what their floats looked like.

With St. Patrick's Day coming up really soon I thought I would create a free word search printable.
I'm even printing off my own copies to hand out to family, friends and to take up to the library that we frequent quite often. Let me know if you enjoyed this in the comments section and if you would like me to things like this more often. I'm working on one for Easter right now as well.

Nail Art | Wizard of OZ - Yellow Brick Road

Posted by: Kimberly Renee on 3/07/2013
Categories: | | | |
     With the new movie "OZ: the Great and Powerful" coming out tomorrow I was inspired to do something special to my nails. What first sparked my inspiration was the nail polish that I received in my February Birchbox (you can view that post here) and my mind just started flowing with ideas of what to do from there. My idea behind this is that the emerald polish represents the Emerald City. The yellow brick road starts out small on my little finger and gradually increases to my thumb where OZ is represented. Isn't it interesting how something so small and colorful as a nail polish can spark creativity?



Interesting People I've Met

Last night I was going through some old photos and came across some really interesting ones. I figured why not write a quick post about them since they are really cool in my opinion and are of opportunities that I am very grateful that I got. It is definitely true that you meet some cool and interesting people throughout your life and especially in Las Vegas. So I think maybe I'll start with the oldest photos first. 


My Monthly Goals for March

     Okay, so I'll just admit it. I've already failed at my new years resolutions even though I wrote this long flipping post about them. I think that having so many might have been a bit overwhelming which led me to having an epiphany the other night. What if....I chuck resolutions out the window and just focus on monthly goals. Sounds like something probably everyone in the world does but I wasn't one of them. At least not until now...hopefully.
