Disney Side Celebration Box Opening

I'm so happy and excited to be part of Disney Side Celebrations. Disney is a big part of our family. I grew up Disney and so have my kids. I've had annual passes on and off since the late 90s to Disneyland.  Disney is in my blood. It's just that magic I can't live without.

Disney has given people across the country a chance to show their Disney Side at home by having a party. We are very excited to be a part of it. My kids were thrilled to see Disney on the box and couldn't wait to open it. It's a huge 24 lb box.
This suitcase is why the box is so big. It's a very nice suitcase with lots of compartments. Black on the outside and red on the inside just like Mickey! The wheels in the bottom are amazing they spin around 360 degrees.

Here are the party supplies. Classic Mickey.

Two packs of craisins (which I love), the chew measuring cups, and the adorable Mickey cookie cutters.

Disney Trivia (I'm gonna win) and picture bingo.

A ton of HP photo paper to print out pictures or make invites. 

iPhone 5 storyteller phone case. Storyteller is an app you can use to make your own stories with your own pictures.

Disney Parks DVD and cute Mickey luggage tag.

Muppets most wanted calendar. We can't wait for the new movie! Kermmmiieee!

Wrist bands and large blank cards.

And last but not least. These super cute Mickey and Minnie posters!

So Disney has given us a green light to take the party where we want it to go. We're still deciding if we're going have an unbirthday party or really celebrate my daughters birthday because it's in February. So keep an eye out on all social media for video and pictures. Hopefully our celebration can inspire your future Disney celebrations. 

Sally Hansen Complete Salon Manicure Vox Box Review

I was sent three colors from Sally Hansens Complete Salon Manicure line from influenster to review. Influenster is a website that let's you try out new things of many different types. I was happy to get this Vox Box because I am a polish aholic and a fan of Sally Hansen. The Complete Salon Maincire line is supposed to have good color coverage, speedy application, streak free, a bigger brush, and a time saver. Sally Hansens also says that it has 7 benefits in one bottle. Base coat, strengthener, growth treatment, color, top coat, chip resistant, and gel shine finish. I was kind of skeptical at first, because that's what we all want in a nail polish right? So I had to try them all out, even though one exploded in delivery.

Pat on the Black is a pretty cream dark burgundy. Not black at all. This color was 2 coats.To my surprise the application was pretty quick. This color also dried quickly. I work with kids so I'm really hard on my nails. The color stayed on nicely for quite a few days. I was also impressed with the shine. You don't know how much I wanted to put a top coat anyway. 
      First day                          Second day

Red My Lips is a cool cream red. This color was also 2 coats. The application was quick for this one too. But for some reason this color took longer to dry. This one also lasted a long while without chipping. The color was not the right red for me, I usually choose deeper reds or more orangey reds.
               First day

Jaded is a pretty cream. I would say it turned out more Tiffany blue with a touch of green. This color since it is lighter took 3 coats. I also got the most complements on this color. Out of the three this is the color I would put top coat on the most. 

                        This picture is from 3 days of use.

Overall I'm impressed. These are great for the woman on the go. Paint and go. 

The brush: big, if you have small nails this might cause a problem.
The strengthener: Not as good as putting Sally Hansen strengthener right on the nail, but still good.
Growth treatment: They did grow.
Colors: I haven't looked at these in stores, but I always want more glitter.
Top Coat: You could do without, but if your anything like me, you want one anyway. The polish holds up to even the toughest of wearers (me) and is shiny.
Bottle: Design is nice. The top is held nicely in the hand.

Sally Hansen is a Complete Knock out! These would make a good addition to anyone's nailpolish collection. Thank You Sally Hansen and Influenster for letting me try these out!

Braun Forehead Thermometer Review

I received the Braun forehead thermometer from influenster to review. This voxbox as specifically just for the thermometer. I was very happy to receive this. I have been thru so many thermometers and have never been happy. So when the doctor asked me if I knew how high my children's temperatures were I never felt comfortable answering. But now with this thermometer I can feel confident.

                          I absolutely love that it came with batteries and were easy to install.

                 It has a protector for when your not using it and seems very easy to clean.

This thermometer is so easy to use the directions are on the thermometer it's self. It seems pretty accurate too. There are 3 different colors to indicate weather the temp is normal (green) mid temp (yellow) or high (red).  Needless to say I'm very happy and would recommend it to anyone, especially if they have kids. What thermometer do use?
