#FrostyVoxBox Review and A Run

Well I finally got my first VoxBox via Influenster. Pretty cool! I love that most of the items in the box were actual full-size product. There were a couple of things I could have done without, the candy being one of them LOL. I had a few pieces and gave the rest to Tim… hello operation fit-in-wedding-dress!

The other product I could have done without was the anti-ageing cream. I am sure I COULD use it, but with the way my skin has been lately (Acne) I don’t want to risk putting anything foreign on my face right now.  I will give that one to a friend to review 🙂

The items that were shipped to me (and will individually be reviewed in later posts) were:

  • No7 Protect and Perfect Intense ADVANCED Sachet (Full Size: $29.99)
  • NYC Expert Last Lip Color ins Sugar Plum ($1.99)
  • Celestial Seasonings Candy Cane Lane Decaf Green Tea
  • EcoTools Hair Brush ($10.99)
  • Rimmel Gentle Eye Makeup Remover ($7.49)
  • Rimmel Scandaleyes Waterproof Kohl Kajal Eyeliner ($4.49)
  • McCormick Gourmet Thyme ($4.79)
  • Fruit Vines Bites ($1.79)

Not too shabby for being FREE. I am really having fun with Influenster and highly recommend to anyone reading this ( – Free to join!)

So, since I’m on the subject I may as well provide a review; I’ll start with the Celestial Seasonings Candy Cane Lane Tea.

Let me first say, that I already have purchased this tea on my own multiple times, so that definitely shows how much I love this stuff. When I opened the box last night and saw it I immediately warmed up some water and made both Tim and I a mug-full. Tim likes Honey in his, I drink it either plain or with a splash of almond milk. It’s amazing… 5/5!


(Notice the picture of us under the coffee table? That’s actually a Shutterfly book we got for free since I purchased my Dress at Davids Bridal… the book turned out OK, but apparently our quality of pictures wasn’t amazing and some of the pages are REALLY grainy and blurry. Total bummer. But the cover is awesome!)

I read my Runner’s World magazine while we watched HGTV’s Property Brothers (remember that DIY kick I’m on? Yeah.)

Now, onto the running.

I knew it would be a late night last night because I had a hair appointment at 5pm and wouldn’t get home until around 7:30.

I look really enthusiastic, don’t I?


Anyway, so I did something I don’t normally do.. a morning run. It was a nice change of pace, but I can’t say I’ll be waking up early to do that every morning. I walked a quarter mile then did 4 miles (on the treadmill). My plan was to do 4 min running and 1 min walking; goal achieved!

I also saw there was a new episode of Hart of Dixie (a guilty pleasure) available on my CW app, so that was my entertainment for the morning. It was great!

I’m hoping to get in two more runs this week, some walking, some yoga, and some bodyweight workouts. The holidays tend to put wrenches in plans, so here’s to hoping!
