The Sally Hansen Complete Salon Manicure Total Knock Out Vox Box Review #CSMTKO

I received a box of Sally Hansen Complete Salon Manicure for the Sally Hansen Total Knock Out Vox Box courtesy of Influenster. It is my first time to review an Influenster VoxBox and it is just one nice box as it will ready me (and my nails) for sandals and flip flop season or just to let me skip the salon for some nail pampering! Wohooo!

So I got these beautiful colours for my nails and they are really a knock out!

So what makes this a Total Knock Out? It is a TOTAL PACKAGE! It has SEVEN BENEFITS in ONE BOTTLE! The base coat, strengthener, growth treatment, color, top coat, it is chip resistant and has a gel shine finish, and with the Flawless Finish Brush, I get a salon perfect mani! That is so awesome!

Since I am no pro when it comes to nail colouring, I tried the Red My Lips colour first:

and the result (take note: I don’t usually colour my nails and I have shaky hands):

Taadaaaa! Red My Lips nails by Sally Hansen!

I love the fact that I don’t have to use a top coat, a strengthener and or a base coat any more because one bottle has everything a salon manicure does! I love the brush because it stays together once I start spreading the polish on my nails, unlike those that I’ve used before, some brush strands break away and stain the outsides of my nails, thus leaving a messy manicure. While the Sally Hansen Flawless Finish Brush gives me that salon perfect mani!

I tried the Pat on the Black and this is the result:

Love love love this colour!!!

Being a mum, I frequent the kitchen and do a lot of chores, with the Sally Hansen chip resistant benefit, the colours survived constant exposure to water (like washing the dishes), chemicals (dishwashing liquid and stuff like that) and other mummy chores, and that’s what I love about it! In fact, I have already recommended this to my co-workers! It’s sheer bliss!

I just love the Sally Hansen Complete Salon Manicure I got from Influenster! It is way better than the brand that I use before and will definitely continue to use them. I can’t wait for Spring and Summer! Visit the the Sally Hansen website to know more about their products or like them on Facebook, follow them on Twitter and Instagram for updates.

Disclosure: I received these products complimentary from Influenster for testing purposes.

Omnisax Reusable Bags, A Fashionable Way to Help Save Mother Earth

One of the changes that we embraced when my family and I got here is to use reusable shopping bags. Obviously, we were not exposed to BYOBs before (that is Bring Your Own Bag) back in our homeland. But here, it was a different way, and I like it so much because my family and I can help eliminate the use of those plastic bags that takes hundreds of years to degrade. So I collected ordinary-looking reusable bags… which honestly, I just tuck under my arms so as it’s not obvious that I am going to the grocery store, (talk about not so fashionable here)lol! I guess you can sense that I still want to look fashionable even when just buying stuff at the grocery store. 😉

So when I was given a sample of Omnisax Reusable Shopping bag, I was so ecstatic and delighted! I have seen a lot of shoppers at the store where I work part time who use reusable shopping bags and Omnisax is no exception. So when I got one, I was so excited to shop and use it.

So what’s with Omnisax reusable shopping bags? And why I am so happy to have one? One thing for sure is that with Omnisax, I can help save Mother Earth by eliminating the use of plastic bags when shopping, and fashionable at that! Omnisax reusable shopping bags are lightweight polyester, waterproof and portable bags. The groovy bag weighs just 1.4 oz! I can roll it up into just 1.5 inches and pop it inside by purse! When it is unrolled, its dimension is surprisingly large, 19.5 inches x 16.5 inches and the reinforced seams can hold up to 44 pounds of grocery and or other stuff! That’s equivalent to at least two supermarket shopping bags! How cool is that!

This Omnisax bag is from their Spring 2013 collection.

I love this bag so much because it is large and trendy. Its bold prints are so cool and light to the eyes. I carry with me a small crossbody bag and because this Omnisax bag can be rolled up, it fits perfectly in my small bag too. So when I shop or can’t resist to shop at the mall, I have a handy bag with me anytime.

I was at the mall the other day and bought some goods for my little boys and guess what, they all sit perfectly inside the bag. Honestly, I am proud that I am carrying a fashionable yet very eco-friendly bag. There is a different feeling to it, knowing that in a way, I am an ambassador in saving Mother Earth. There’s no greater feeling than being able to help and preserve the only planet we have for my children and their children’s children, right?

My Omnisax bag at work!

After work shopping! I always buy something after my work shift, so the Omnisax reusable shopping bag comes in very very handy for me!

This is not only a shopping bag, and as trendy as it looks, I can even use it for my daily walks and appointments. I also use this whenever I go out with my boys to the park or to the school yard, I place in a bottle of cold water or a liter of juice, some packs of crackers, a big ziplock bag with a diaper and baby wipes in it, even sandwiches and other stuff (extra shirts) that a mom (with active little boys at that) like me usually brings.

This bag just serves its purpose. I honestly use it often than the branded purses that I bought online… 😉 That’s how much I like this bag! It’s not just my shopping bag!

I am happy that, the makers of this gorgeous and amazingly functional bags, are here to help protect the environment. It’s their vision, their philosophy, to create a better future for our planet and tomorrow’s generation, and those are my children (and yours too)! They spread this message through the vibrant colors and script of the Omnisax bags. It’s a simple solution, and that makes me proud and hold my head up high when I carry this message… through my Omnisax bag.

I hope we all do… so if you want to make that simple change, an evolution of a culture (according to the Omnisax website), head over to the Omnisax webpage and get yourself a head start… like right now! Just think of our children and our grandchildren when you buy their bags. When I got one, I did… and that makes me a happy mom!
