Violet Voxbox (Invites, Anyone?)

Yay, Voxbox! 

I have only been apart of the Influenster family for about a year now and have really enjoyed all the opportunities I've received to test and review products and to make new blogging friends! I highly encourage my blogger (and non-blogger!) friends to join! If you're interested, please email me at annieonecancook@gmail.com or comment on this post with your email so I can get you an invite ASAP! :D 

So, wanna know what was in my Violet Voxbox?

For the most part, I was pretty pleased with my Voxbox--it can sometimes be a hit or miss but I'd consider this to be more of the first (a hit!). Here's what I thought..

Goody® Athletique Adjustable Yoga Wicking Headband ($6; available at Target) 
Goody Athletique items provide you hold and comfort so you can be physically active and strong in body and mind.  Customize your headband's fit through its velcro adjustable strap.

I had a bunch of errands to run last Saturday and decided to throw my hair up in a ponytail and to pull my bangs back
with my new headband--honestly, it was just okay. I noticed that it doesn't stay in place very well (it slipped back A LOT--maybe I should have used bobby pins to keep it from moving?) but it was comfortable. My hair is really fine and limp so I can't see myself doing any of the cute hairstyles many girls on Instagram (#shareurhair) were sharing, but I will try using it again sometime in the near future.. with bobby pins.
Would I recommend this product to a friend? Yes (on account of the fact that they could probably make it stay in place/create cuter dos than I ever would).

Goody Quikstyle Brush
($8.37; available on Amazon)

 Go from wet to beautifully styled hair faster than ever!  Super absorbent microfiber bristles remove 30% of water as you style*. It's like a towel and a brush in one.
I actually really, really like this brush! It combs through tangles very easily and does a pretty good job of drying your sopping wet, just out of the shower hair! It's like a brush with a built-in shag carpet and I love it! I'm definitely interested in purchasing the round brush for styling and blow drying my hair. 
Would I recommend this product to a friend? Yes. 

SoyJoy® Nutrition Bars - Cranberry ($9.99 for a box of 12; available at Target)
Real cranberries add tang to this cookie-like bar for a healthy, tasty snack. Convenient individually-wrapped bars don’t melt or freeze. Tastes even better microwaved (unwrap first) for 8-10 seconds.
My breakfast a few weeks ago.
Okay, how should I put this..? Umm, I don't know what kind of nasty cookies the description writer of this product grew up eating but they must have been made of candle wax because that's what this bar tasted like (or what I'd imagine candle wax tasting like). Not good. Not good at all. I don't know if it was just the cranberry flavor or if all SoyJoy bars taste the same but this left a really awful aftertaste in my mouth. I'd be willing to try a different flavor to see if there is any difference but I kinda have a feeling that all of these bars are basically the same.. 
Would I recommend this product to a friend? No. 

Sally Hansen® Triple Shine™ in Reef-Raf ($4.99; available at Walgreens)
Get ready for the shiniest nails ever! Water to workout, day in and day out, nothing will dull these nails.  With the Ultimate Shield Complex your nails outshine 'em all.
I gave myself a little "pre-push pedicure" a couple weeks ago--not the best, I know, but it's an amazing feat when you can reach your feet (feat and feat, ha!) at 36 weeks.
I really like this polish! I wasn't too crazy about the color at first (I thought it'd be a little too bright--I tend to stick with darker reds on my toes) but I love the way it came out! I also really liked the brush--it seemed a little bigger/wider than most which made painting a cinch!
Would I recommend this product to a friend? Yes.

  1. I liked the first couple Soy Joy bars I ate (coupons, yo) but after that they're just bleh. Granted, I never expected them to be like a cookie at all.
    I love Sally Hansen's nail polish brushes. They're the best.
