“A mother is the truest friend we have, when trials heavy and sudden, fall upon us; when adversity takes the place of prosperity; when friends who rejoice with us in our sunshine desert us; when trouble thickens around us, still will she cling to us, and endeavor by her kind precepts and counsels to dissipate the clouds of darkness, and cause peace to return to our hearts.”

I went to the mailbox today and was pleasantly surprised to receive my complimentary box from Influenster. I opened it up to find many goodies to try. This was like a nice Ladies pampering box!
Here is what I received in the Maple Vox Box Package:
Skinny Cow Milk Chocolate Flavour Heavenly Crisp- which tasted heavenly without the calories.
Skinny Cow Milk Chocolate Dreamy Clusters- Another tasty satisfying treat.
NYC New York Colour Big Bold Curl Mascara-Which makes your lashes fuller and more volume.
NYC New York Colour Big Bold Plumping Lip Gloss- You lips fell soft smooth and luscious
Broadway Nails imPress-On Manicure-These nails look great, quickly press on and shiny no gluing
Montage Jeunesse Clay Spas-The mask made my skin feel clean and baby soft skin, very nice
Ice Breakers DUO-mint and fruit flavoured and freshens your breath, comes in raspberry and strawberry. I received raspberry and that is my favourite flavour.
2 coupons for $1 off the purchase of any 2 NYC New York Colour Products
I just love everything that I got to try and am happy with the results of the products. The Skinny Cow treats were really yummy and satisfying. I loved the mascara as I have thin eyelashes and the mascara made them bold and longer and thicker, great stuff! The lip product made my lips shiny, soft and looked good. The mask really cleaned my pours and my skin felt fresh and soft. The Ice Breakers were nice and refreshing to the mouth. I love coupons and always use them whenever I shop so these will come in handy.
I joined a site called Influenster and have received my complimentary box and I have been given the opportunity to review and test the products and the opinions expressed are those of my own and not necessarily those of the sponsors.
Do you like to do Scrapbooking? Send Photo Christmas cards? Then I have a great website for you to check out!
You can have fun with your photos by Customizing and personalizing them by adding Santa or Santa and Rudolph to your pictures, you can also change the border of your photos as well. There are many images to choose from. I have been given the chance to review this website http://iCaughtSanta.com and was able to customize some of my photos which I found was fun to do.
Here are a couple of my Photos that I customized below
This is a picture of the front of my house ans I love receiving mail and that it would be whimsical to have Santa and Rudolph in my front yard :)
Here is a Picture of Santa by my Christmas tree!
I just love this site and enjoyed experimenting with the different add-ons for my pictures. It was simple, easy and fun to do! If you have children they will also love to see Santa or Rudolph in the Photos.

I love clicking to give...you don't always need money to help organizations out and this is a great cause.
Lets help out the furry friends!
When it comes to Christmas some people like to dress up their pets. I have a Siamese cat and he is kinda bah humbug when it comes to dressing him up he is not crazy about accessories. My boyfriend bought him an outfit and we got the hat and collar on but he refused to put the jacket on. By the picture you can tell he was not impressed. It was fun trying to dress him up!
Christmas is a great time of year for pets. I always get my cat Caesar a stocking and put it under the tree. I also pick him up a catnip toy with his stocking, He just loves catnip! He loves getting presents and enjoys trying to open presents that are not his that are under the tree as well. I am glad he doesn't try to climb my tree or play with the ornaments. I know some peoples cats like to do that so I am fortunate that way.
I think it is cute when people dress up their pets. My neighbour dresses up her dog in outfits right down to little booties and he looks so cute. It reminded me of the movie I seen called Legally Blonde but the neighbours outfit didn't match the dogs.
Do you have any pets? Do you have a cat or dog? Do you dress them up?
I have been on Facebook and people are posting a countdown until Christmas. I am generally one of these shoppers that plan ahead and generally would be ready by now, for some reason I am not prepared or ahead of the game this year. I have started my Christmas shopping but will be late at getting it done this year. I can't believe that Christmas is only 38 days away! I hear Christmas music on the radio and see the Christmas stuff in the store. I think it is a bit early for the stations to play Christmas music.
What are you thoughts on this?
I even have my Christmas tree up already as it always helps to get me into the Christmas mood. Here is a picture of my Christmas tree.
I love Christmas as it is my most favourite time of the year. Everyone seems to be happy and treats everyone nice at Christmas. My favourite thing about Christmas is the lights. I also love the Christmas treats like short bread cookies. My least favourite thing is last minute shopping and the packed parking lot at the mall and the line ups and stress on what to buy someone and it not being in stock.
When do you start your Christmas shopping? Are you one that plans ahead or waits until the last minute to shop? What is your favourite thing about the Christmas holiday season?
I love necklaces and I know most women are like me and love them too. This giveaway is for an owl necklace, it is a longer necklace and is very cute and trendy. I own one and just love it! I want to get to know my followers better so we are going to make this a fun contest.
Here is a picture of the necklace.
The Owl says WHO.....so you have to comment on the first question but the others are optional. The mandatory question is Tell me WHO is your favourite singer, my favourite singer is Mariah Carey. I have been a fan of hers since the beginning of time...hehe, well for many years anyway.
WHO is you favourite actor or actress? My favourite actor is Bruce Willis.
WHO inspires you? I get inspiration from Dr Phil as he has words of wisdom in all situations in life. I also find Dr Oz inspiring, he has great tips on looking young, eating healthy and your overall health.
