SinfulColors Is A Class Act

*Disclosure- I received the mentioned product courtesy of the sponsor for the purpose of this review. All opinions are genuine, based on my experience with the product, and have not been influenced by promotional items.

We are getting down to the wire for back-to-school shopping. We have already bought most of the basics: writing utensils, backpacks, paper and folders. Tomorrow we will finish up our school clothing purchases as well. In addition to the supplies and clothes, we like to add in a few extra fun purchases too. New cosmetics are always on our back-to-school list, so the girls can walk into class on the first day with fresh faces. However, my girls don't wear much as far as cosmetics go. A little tinted facial moisturizer, powder, and keeping a stick of concealer handy for those occasional teen breakouts usually covers it. Also on the list is a new shade or two of nail color. 

SinfulColors Nail Polish

Heading into the 2015 school year, SinfulColors has an impressive 27 new shades that put your manicure at the top of the class! Beautiful denim blues and shimmering silvers, purples and teals all deserve straight A's!



SinfulColors A Class Act line of nail polishes blend well with the latest fall fashions. While you may grow bored in class, you will never grow bored with the many different shade options!

Pineapple Bread Pudding

*Disclosure- I received the mentioned product courtesy of the sponsor for the purpose of this review. All opinions are genuine, based on my experience with the product, and have not been influenced by promotional items.


I eat pineapple year round, but there's something extra tasty about eating it in summer. There are so many ways you can incorporate it into delicious recipes, pineapple upside down cake being one of my favorites. I saw Pineapple Bread Pudding on Golden Blossom Honey not too long ago and thought it would be a yummy recipe for a summer picnic or gathering.  


The recipe calls for 7 pieces of sliced white bread. I think Texas Toast or cubed French bread would work wonderfully for this recipe as well. 


Ingredients
4 eggs, beaten
1/2 cup butter, melted
3/4 cup GOLDEN BLOSSOM HONEY
1 (20 ounce) can crushed pineapple
7 slices white bread, cubed

Walmart Back To School! Getting BTS Essentials Like A Boss #BTSLikeABoss



The first half of our summer started out lazy and slow. The second half? Not so much. We are trying to pack in a family vacation, a drivers test, last minute doctor and dental appointments, and Mariah just informed me she has changes that need to be made to her class schedule before heading back to school in a few weeks. We have A LOT going on these next few weeks and we still need to do most of our back-to-school shopping. Trying to squeeze everything in can get a little overwhelming, but thankfully busy moms like me know that I can get everything I need in one stop for back to school at Walmart.

https://ooh.li/abaef2a

Pens, pencils, paper and crayons. Rulers, markers, folders and binders. Each year the list of back to school essentials grows and grows. Times that by 2 kids, I have a lot to buy. In addition to the reading, writing and arithmetic utensils, the teachers usually request paper products to be sent in as well. Paper towels, toilet paper and facial tissue are usually in high demand. Saving money on our back-to-school purchases is equally important as saving time, so I am thankful that I can grab the teacher requested paper essentials, like Kleenex at Walmart while I am making the rest of my back-to-school purchases.

https://ooh.li/abaef2a

I love being able to get all of our back-to-school supplies in one stop while saving money, too! This year I am really excited to see select products are offering Bonus Boxtops For Education on the product packing!

https://ooh.li/abaef2a

Not only am I able to fulfill the school paper essentials, I am also helping the school earn some much needed money with those extra Boxtops! Grab Kleenex, Scott Extra Soft and Viva at Walmart, and be sure to look for the back-to-school packing with the bonus Boxtops to help your school today!

Nothing Says Summer Like Honey Lemon Iced Tea

*Disclosure- I received the mentioned product courtesy of the sponsor for the purpose of this review. All opinions are genuine, based on my experience with the product, and have not been influenced by promotional items.

Most of you may not know this, but a lot of my childhood was spent growing up in the south. Texas and South Carolina are both states I have called home, and we spent many summers on my grandma's farm in Tennessee. I've long since lost my accent, but sometimes when I am angry or really excited, that southern twang comes back, giving me a reminder of my days spent living the good southern life. Anyone who is anyone from the south will tell you that sweet tea is a staple in southern cuisine, and sadly it's just not something you really get here in the north. A few years back I started cutting cane sugar from my diet, and now drink unsweetened tea all day long. My mom won't touch my tea, as she is a firm believer that tea should be sweetened, even if it doesn't turn out like a good pitcher of the tea we had down south. When I found this Honey Lemon Ice Tea on Golden Blossom Honey, I thought it would be a good compromise.

Sweetened with honey and frozen lemonade, it has a sweet, tangy taste. Best of all, mom approves! 


Ingredients

8 tea bags
1 1/2 cups boiling water
1/2 cup GOLDEN BLOSSOM HONEY
1 cup frozen canned lemonade concentrate
2 quarts cold water
lemon slices and mint leaves, if desired

Is Mystery Shopping the Right Job for You?

Mystery shoppers visit stores and other businesses to report on the quality of their products and customer service. They do this in secret to ensure that staff members treat them the same way as other customers. This supplies companies with valuable data and helps them to make improvements. Mystery shopping is a desirable job for people with a keen attention to detail and enjoy traveling.

What's Required?

To work as a mystery shopper on a regular basis, you'll need a reliable vehicle and a computer with an Internet connection. Some people also use small cameras or recorders when performing this work, but the company may supply this equipment. The job normally doesn't require any educational degrees or certificates.

Advantages

● This is an excellent line of work for anyone who likes variety. Mystery shoppers often get to visit a wide range of stores, eateries, lodging establishments, theaters and even car dealerships.

● If you become employed in this field, the company will reimburse you for purchases. It may also provide travel compensation or even let you stay overnight for free during trips to distant stores.

● This job is a great choice if you want a chance to visit top-notch hotels and high-end shops. You may be able to experience the height of luxury without paying for it.

● Mystery shoppers help businesses enhance goods and services. Companies use their discoveries to fix serious problems. If you want to perform work that benefits the public, this is an excellent option.

● You'll be able to set up your schedule in a flexible way and decide how many hours you want to work. However, some firms will limit the amount of time that you spend at each location.

Disadvantages

● You won't succeed at this job if you aren't able to notice and pay attention to detail. It can also be difficult to set aside existing opinions and look at every business objectively.

● Most mystery shoppers must follow very specific instructions and collect data on many different aspects of an establishment. This can make it less enjoyable to visit a restaurant, shop or hotel.

● To work full time, you may need to travel extensively every year (commuting to and from shops). This can be tiring, and you'll probably need to replace your vehicle more often than you would in most other lines of work.

● It's can be harder to make a living in mystery shopping. Companies often pay by the assignment, so there's no guarantee that you'll earn minimum wage. Some firms only provide "free" products and services.

● Although it would be more efficient, you can't expect to always schedule back-to-back visits to nearbyshops. One problem is that it's hard to predict how long each store visit will take and what is required for that particular shop.

Mystery shopping may be right for you if you have excellent observation skills and a good memory. It's probably not a suitable job for someone who likes predictable routines. This line of work offers great fringe benefits and provides many opportunities to visit new places. However, many people want to become mystery shoppers, so some companies offer little compensation. Do your research and find the companies that you prefer to work with that pay a fair wage for each shop.
