Loot Crate May 2014

As I mentioned in my previous video my husband and I have been going back and forth on whether we will continue this monthly subscription. I don't want you to think that we haven't been enjoying these "crates" but it was more due to being financially cautious since we purchased a new house.
But I am happy to announce that we signed up for 3 more months! Yay! 

If you are not familiar with Loot Crate its designed more towards the gamer/geeky consumer. If you love to be the person with exclusive gamer/geeky items then this box is for you. Every box I've received I have gotten money's worth and more. 
There are 3 plans to choose from. The 1 month plan for $19.37(includes S&H), 3 month plan $55.11 (includes S&H and you save $3!) and the 6 month plan for $105.99 (includes S&H and you save $10!)

If you are interested on joining you can use my referral link or you can go directly to their website

I have to say May's crate was disappointing. 
My husband even agreed with me. There were a few items here that I liked. I hope that next month's is better. 
Check out my why I was disappointed with this box:

Tiling Chaos

Let the Tiling Chaos commence! 
This week my husband left for a work trip and on top of that I had to deal with the first floor being worked on. I was happy that I no longer would have to deal carpet. Well at least for the first floor. 
Good bye carpet will definitely NOT miss you!
Jinx were basically stuck in our guest room. We read books, watched movies and played. Didn't want to go down stairs unless it was necessary. 
Friday they were finally done. And just in the nick of time too! My husband was arriving from his trip and my family was arriving that same night as well. 
It was a full house this weekend. But I was glad that my daughter got to spend time with her cousins. She always asks about them.

Taking It Easy

After having weekly guests at our house, I finally had a chance to not worry so much how the house looks. Not saying it is a total pig-style. Loved to be able to focus on enjoying my time with my daughter. I also had a chance to see one of my best friends, Yanina (also known as Auntie Nina for Jinx), at Downtown Disney. Overall it was good week. 
My husband and I were planning to go up to Jacksonville to visit my other best friend, Maureen. But due to some conflicting schedules we weren't able to attend her graduation from law school. I'm so proud of my best friend graduating! After she passes the bar exam we will definitely celebrate together :-D
I hope you enjoy watching my weekly vlog:

Montage Jeunesse Review

This review and how-to is on the Montagne Jeunesse Manuka Honey & Jasmine. I loved how my skin felt after I peeled my mask. This is something that I would definitely will purchase in the future. 
One thing I should advise you if you use this face mask or any face mask is to put up your hair and wear hairband to cover those small hairs that surrounds your face.
Watch my video for the full review and how-to:

If you can't see it then you can watch it through my YouTube Channel: Surprise You Are A Mom!

You can barely see it but that's the face mask
Have you tried any face masks from Montagne Jeunesse? Or do you have a particular brand or kind of face mask that you always use? I love to hear from you! so comment down below :-D

This unboxing way overdue! So sorry about that.
Originally I wanted to do this unboxing with my sister due to the theme DRAGON.
Of course this is associated with The Game of Thrones. And being that my sister is a huge fan of this TV show. I wanted to do this with her. But our time together was limited and getting sick the weekend my family was here we couldn't do it. 
So without further a due here is my April 2014 unboxing!

Sunny Days

The weather has been wonderful down here in Florida. We took advantage of it. We went to the animal shelter, pool and the park. So much fun and glad that we are no longer sick except for the occasional cough. 
I  tried using Kale for my green smoothie. 
Check out this week's vlog how it turned out down below or on my channel: Surprise You Are A Mom!

Have you made any green smoothies before? Do have a special recipe that you always go back to?
Still learning how to tweak my smoothie recipe so comment down below :)

Happy Mother's day! 
I hope you had an extra special day :)

Kleenex With Style

My family always uses Kleenex for multiple reasons now. Not just for the stuffy nose. 
I previously I made a post of Kleenex Expression. 
I am back again with Kleenex helping me be stylish with a box of Kleenex! 
People might think how is that possible?
With the fun prints that the company is coming out with it's hard not to. 
These designs have inspired me with decorating my new house. It's patterns and colors gives my once dull room a pop of needed color to brighten up. 
A couple of weeks ago I couldn't find a specific design that Kleenex offers. To be honest I was a bit bummed out. Recently when I went shopping I finally found it on the shelves! (YAY!)
I absolutely love this design. It's so classy and simplistic that makes a big statement in any room.

I let my daughter choose her own tissue box.
Her first choice was this one: 

It might be the colors that brought her attention or just the fact that it had a pink bird.
Either way it's a wonderful design.

Even if you are on the go, you can incorporate these Kleenex style tissues.
Love these geometric patterns!
You can even coordinate with your purse or whatever mood you are in.
I now keep at least one pack in my purse at all times. 

With these bright color packs it's not hard to find it when needed. 
I know you girls know what I am talking about. 

Kleenex has partnered up with Isasc Mizrahi for some exclusive designs! If you are interested you can find them here. These designs are so pretty and colorful it's hard to resist not to purchase them.

Can you believe Kleenex has been around for 90 years?! Come and check out their stylish history.

I hope you enjoyed this post. Love hearing for you so tell me what you think about these Kleenex designs by commenting down below.

Disclosure: This post is financially supported by Kleenex but all my opinions are my own. I would not recommend anything that I wouldn't personally purchase/like.

Madison Street Beauty Eye Shadow Review

Thanks to my friend Annie from Annie A to Z she recommended me Madison Street Beauty
This beauty company is unique. Not only is it a mineral based company but it is 100% all natural & vegan. 
Which means no random chemicals or animal products in the makeup. 
I was very excited to receive my eye shadows in the mail. Madison Street Beauty were kind enough to send me some eye shadows to test out myself. 
Here is my video review of Madison Street Beauty: 

Here are the eye shadows up close

I absolutely love this company that I already purchased their lip sheers and also going to purchase their foundation, bronzer and blush in the near future. 
For those that want to purchase or are on a budget, I am happy to say I have a promo code for you. 
The code is URAMOM and this will give you 50% off your first purchase (no minimum or max required)! 
How exciting is that?! But don't wait to long. 
This code will only last till June 2014!

Got sick!

This past week has not been a good one for me. I got sick in the middle of the week! Now I'm way better but being a mom and wife and to top it off being sick is not that great. Any little energy I had it was to be with Jinx or clean up a bit. 
You can watch how our week went by viewing down below or on my channel: Surprise You Are A Mom!

How do you deal with being sick and taking care of your family? 
Any special remedies that you make?
Love to hear your thoughts so comment below :)
