Surprises In My Mailbox

I absolutely love to check my mail.  First of all, I collect postcards, and I also love to create mail art, so I am a member of and  Participating in these two sites, I get a lot of mail from my swaps.  I also enter lots of contests, take advantage of free sample offers, and take lots of paid and product trial surveys, so I am always getting something new and exciting in my mail box.

Here is what came today:

I got a full size bottle of L'Oreal BB cream from SheSpeaks, a sample of Centrum Flavor Burst Gummy vitamins, a small can of Beneful dog food along with a coupon, a postcard from Russia, a 3D postcard from the Netherlands, and a vintage postcard from Oak Creek Canyon in Arizona.

I can't wait to see what comes tomorrow!

Sara's Cupcakes


For Christmas, we bought our daughter a mini-cupcake maker at K-Mart.  She loves watching Cupcake Wars and she is always helping when we do any baking.  The girl has a real love for baking and for 11 years old, she pretty darn good at it too.  So it seemed only natural that we get this for her.

The cupcake maker is very easy to use and comes with an aluminum box for storage, a carrier, and an icing tool with various tips. Here she is pouring in the batter.

A look at the cupcakes after baking and before icing.

Here she is putting the icing on the cupcakes.  For these she used Betty Crocker whipped vanilla icing.

And the final product after the final touch of crumbled Oreo cookies.  MMmm!

COVERGIRL blastflipstick

I've posted before that I am a BzzAgent, and for being a BzzAgent I get to try products and in return I spread the word and give my opinions on them.  My latest Bzz Campaign is for CoverGirl's BlastFlipStick lip stick.

The lipstick is a moisturizing, dual ended lipstick that comes with a different color on each end of the stick.  One color is a creamy color and is little softer and tamer for day use, and the other color is a shimmer, and is a little more bold and dazzling for those hot nights on the town.  You can wear each color by itself, or, because they were created to blend easily, you can create a whole new look by combining the two colors together.

They come in 13 colorful duos that perfectly compliment each other.  The different color duos are:

  1. Whisper 800
  2. Pucker 805
  3. Glimmer 810
  4. Flashy 815
  5. Vixen 820
  6. Perky 825
  7. Tease 830
  8. Cheeky 835
  9. Stunner 840
  10. Snap 845
  11. Smooth 850
  12. Minx 855
  13. Intense 860

These are available in most drug stores, grocery stores, and major retailers, so they won't be hard to find.  They retail for right around $8.49 each.

This is a picture of me wearing Minx 855.
