Sargento Cheese VoxBox

Hello everyone. Long time no post, I know. I would write out a whole elaborate explanation about why I haven't been posting and all that, but I don't feel like it really matters. No one reads this blog anyway. Anywho, I'm coming on here today because I received yet another VoxBox from the lovely site Influenster. I was actually shocked I received it since I haven't been an active member on there for a while, but I'm glad I did. It was right up my ally. As I've stated before, I've been trying to eat healthy in order to lose weight and get in shape. I've been doing good and bad. I've lost a little over 10 pounds since my last post, but I haven't been sticking to my "diet" and exercise like I should. So when Influenster told me they were sending me a healthy snack to try I was overjoyed!

There's honestly not too much for me to review about this so I'll try to keep this short. I mean, it's food. It's either good or bad. Anyway, in my VoxBox I received two coupons and a case for my cheese snack. One was for a free Sargento cheese product for up to $4.29 (I believe) and another one for $1 any Sargento cheese product. It completely skipped my mind to take pictures of the coupon before I redeemed it, but it looked exactly like the one for $1 off. Except it said free of course.

Weight loss regimen

I'm currently doing two things as my workout. The first thing I'm "doing" is the Insanity DVD set by Shaun T. I put doing in quotation marks because 1. I know I'm not doing the workouts completely right, 2. I've skipped days when I wasn't supposed to, and 3. For the past week I've only done the warm-ups. I know, the last one probably has you giving me a real hard side-eye right now. But I honestly didn't know that was all I was doing! So it's not that I'm lazy, it's just that I'm stupid. That probably doesn't make it any better, but oh well. I started doing the Insanity workout the Sunday before last (a week and a day ago).

The other thing I'm doing is this 30-day crunch challenge.

Today is my 4th day doing it, however I'm not doing it exactly like the picture has it. Since I'm slacking in Insanity, I figured I would do three sets of whatever amount I'm supposed to do that day. I've also added reverse crunches to the challenge as well. I don't do three reps of those though. I can barely make it to the number required for the day.

Schwarzkopf Professional OSiS+ Rough Rubber

In case you guys didn't know, I am natural. I have very curly hair that doesn't like to stay put. And although I try to use all natural products, when it comes to slicking down my hair I will use whatever works. So when I received the Rough Rubber in my VoxBox I was very excited. It was right up my ally!


The product has a weird texture to it, feels kind of like a paste. But it has a nice smell to it, a smell unlike any hair product I've used. Most products that smell nice usually come off as fruity, but this smells very floral like. However it's very very strong. So strong that it made my nose tingle. It was so bad that it was initially a turn off for me, but the results made up for it.

Secret Outlast Clear Gel


I wanted to wait a while before I wrote my review on this because I wanted to make sure I really knew what I was talking about. I was originally skeptical of trying it because my last gel deodorant experience wasn't a good one, but I must say I am throughly pleased.

The deodorant that I normally use is Degree for women. I figure if they know how to keep the stank off men then they should be able to work for me too. And they do! It's not a bad deodorant at all. However I still have to go through that whole process of making sure I don't get any deodorant stains on my clothes. You ladies know what I'm talking about.

imPRESS Press-On Manicure by Broadway


So as shown in my previous post I received a press-on nail set by Broadway in my Spring Fever VoxBox. I'm not really a fan of press-on nails since I have yet to find one that is durable, and unfortunately trying out these nails did not change my mind.

The nails come in a very cute packaging made to look like a nail polish bottle which, to me, was a plus. After all, us girls love to buy things that are cute, right? And it was also convenient for storing the extra nails just incase you may need them later on.

Spring VoxBox

When I joined Influenster I told my mother about it and she had me email her a request so she could join. Well recently they asked her to be a part of the Spring Fever VoxBox program, and after what felt like forever, she finally received the box. She actually received it about 2 weeks ago, but I've been so busy with my daughter that I didn't have the time to review the products and all that. I know you're probably wondering why I'm reviewing her VoxBox for her. For one, my mother is not the type to blog or do anything related to social networks. And secondly, none of the things that were sent in the VoxBox were really anything she'd use, besides the deodorant. However they were all up my ally. Here's what came in the box along with some pics:

Update

Hello! Long time no blog, I know. But I have a valid reason for that (besides the fact that I have no followers.) I gave birth to a beautiful baby girl last month and she's been stealing all my attention ever since! I'm not going to post her birthdate, time, weight, and all that jazz because this is the internet. But don't feel bad! It's not you, it's me.. Well no, no it is you. I don't know you. And the internet is filled with creeps, so I kind of have a valid reason to be a little paranoid. Anyway, that's beside the point! Now that my baby is here the journey can finally begin! I probably won't officially start until my 6 weeks are up, since I can't work out until then, but I will be making a post with my goals and game plan soon. And I may even make a post with some tips on dealing with a newborn baby. I know I'm no expert, but you can never have enough tips and advice. Unless you don't want them and someone keeps telling you what will and will not happen and what you should and should not do. But of course you can just skip over that post if you don't want to read it. That's all I have to say for now though. I just wanted to give you guys a quick update on what's been going on and let you know what's going to come! Blog to you soon :)

Palmolive® Soft Touch™


As you can see by the badge on the side of my blog, I am an active member of a website called Influenster. If you don't know what Influenster is you can read a detailed review on it here, but basically it's a site where you review products and sometimes get free products sent to you to test out and review. Recently I was sent two products from them of Palmolive's new Soft Touch dish washing liquid, and I decided I might as well make an extensive review of it on here. After all, mamas wash dishes and stuff, right?

Introduction

Hello! My name is Genah and I pretty much suck at making introductions, but I'm going to try for the sake of my (future) readers. I am a 19 year old college student and I am currently 8 months pregnant. You might be wondering "What does that have to do with anything?"... Well it has everything to do with everything! Okay, so maybe not everything, but it has to do with everything related to this blog. You see, by having a baby so young, I've deprived myself from being able to do many things, at least temporarily, and I know that. However, I am tired of hearing people tell me and insinuate things like your life is over, your body is ruined, and things will never be the same again. While the latter is true, it doesn't mean it has to be a bad thing! Sure, having a baby is a life changing experience for everyone, but that doesn't mean the former life you had has to diminish completely.
