Hello Forest Freinds!
I just wanted to write a quick post to update you guys on what's
going on, and good luck that I have been having! It gets a little lonely out here in the
forest, and truthfully that is what lead me to get active on social media, for friends!
I wanted to start by thanking each and every one of you who has bothered to stop by
my page or checked out one of my videos! It means a lot to me.
I know that my first two YouTube videos are short of amazing
in the quality department, for that I apologize! The un-boxing video I did was purely
to thank the website Influenster for always sending me cool things to try out and review.
I had just recieved a replacement for my old broken laptop, and had no clue how to
use the webcam, or how bad it would look, but I knew that I needed to this, and I
could not think of a good exuse not to! This brings me to my good news. I got an
I-Phone yesterday, so I promise that my next video will not only be nice to look at,
but I have some really fun and exciting content in the works! I'll go ahead and spoil
one suprise... I subscribed to BirchBox and I will be sharing my first unboxing with
all of you! The release will depend, of course, on when my first box arrives, but
now we all have something to look forward to!
Please check back to find out what's up my sleeve for the future!
Thank you so much for reading, and have a BEAUTIFUL week!
Taking the negative with the positive!
I recently began exploring the wonderful world of You Tube. My boyfriend and I watch all of our media via XBOX 360. You Tube, Amazon Instant Video, Hulu Plus, and a few other subscriptions keep us up to date on shows and movies that we like! In the last year I have found myself going to You Tube for almost everything from entertainment needs, to hair tutorials. I love the idea of average people from all over the world being able to add their two cents to the media. I want to be apart of that world. I started a channel a few months ago, mostly to showcase a hilarious video of my cousins being the dorks that I LOVE! I also uploaded a video for Influenster.com (I know, I talk about them all of the time...) I got a VoxBox from them for Christmas, packed with random goodies! In order to thank them I decided to use the new laptop I got for Christmas to do an un-boxing video. The only problem was that I had only had this laptop for a day, and I had no idea that it was even capable of recording video and audio at the same time, so this video is truly a wreck, but I had so much fun making it, that I just didn't care how it may look to some. I was proud of myself for just doing the best I could in order to give back. I had to laugh when after gaining a few followers, I read a comment that states for me to "Get a better camera!" Someone took time out of their day to watch my video and tell me something that was more than clear to me. My first thought was that perhaps this guy had somehow missed Shia Labeouf's motivational speech! I did something that I felt would be good for me, beneficial to my anxiety issues, and good for a company that gives so much to me! I really hope that those who read this feel just a little bit better about whatever it may be that makes you question your own awesome-ness. You only get one chance to be everything that you want to be, and some of us may miss out on something amazing because we were too insecure, or someone told you that you would likely fail... I know if I would have listened to my own self doubt as a younger me, I would not be the woman that I am today. I am not perfect, but I do finally feel (at 27 years old,) that I would rather be myself, than anyone else in the world. <3 Thank you for being here, and thank you for being you!
*Here is the very first video on my channel! This is a clip of my cousins (Becca and Taylor) being adorable and HILARIOUS!*
Outstanding Results Under Two Bucka-Roos?
Thanks to Influenster.com, and the coveted 2015 Jingle VoxBox, I recently discovered and insanely cheap, and insanely AWESOME nail polish! I was even lucky enough to get a color that is to my liking, and quite wearable. I was impressed with the intense pigmentation, and the fact that I only need two coats! In the photo I used a base and top coat of Formula 2 that the Brand Nailtiques had sent me last year (this stuff is also AMAZING FYI!) I did try this product alone the day that I received the box, and it did very well on it's own! With the base/top coat, however, it has held up for over a solid week now! Pure Ice is available at your local Walmart or Walmart.com! I checked out the shade selection available online, and I am definitely going to be exploring more shades as soon as possible! You really cannot beat the price tag, coming in at $1.97! I have paid 3x the price for nail polishes I wish I would have never purchased, so if you find yourself stuck in the nail polish isle at Walmart, Pure Ice is the way to go! I would rather have three awesome shades with a great formula, than one name brand polish, that can be best described as a goopey mess! This polish is just "too cool!" And that joke was too lame! :See y'all next time! <3
Use your influence to receive free products!
I have been using Influenster since 2014, and I ADORE this website! I signed up hoping to try new products, but honestly not having a lot of hope that it would work out the way they said it would. As usual, I was so wrong! I write reviews for products I already use, and it was only about a month after signing up that I received my first e-mail from them asking to take a qualifying survey. I answered a few questions related to the products that they were going to be featuring, and I qualified! I got an email a couple of days later saying that I would be receiving the next VoxBox! Vox Boxes typically include 1-2 product selections from a Brand or a full line of products sometimes! This Christmas I received a special Vox Box called the Jingle Box, it had all kinds of different products in it! I have added a video of my Un-boxing so you can see what was inside! Influenster is also a great way to begin branching out on social media sites, because they give you products to share with your followers (Blog/video subject matter!) I highly recommend Influenster to anyone who has free time to spend online, a following on any social media, freebie addicts, or anyone looking to enter the world of blogging!

I wanted to get right to posting an article about my latest section of my blog, Coffee Cash! This segment is dedicated to sharing with everyone how I earn my extra spending money for things like cosmetics, fancy coffee, gifts for everyone, and any other "frivolous" purchases! I do not earn a lot of money at my job, so every bit of funding helps! For my first edition of Coffee Cash I wanted to share the website that saved my butt at Christmas time. I had just started a new job around Halloween, and really had not caught up on bills enough to think about spending money on gifts. I had been using SwagBucks to earn giftcards when I could remember to log on. I started using it more and more, after my first cashout I was hooked! I have been using fairly casually since late August, and I have already cashed out over $100 in gift cards that I used on Amazon Prime! I am a member of an amazing group on Facebook called Swag Bucks Swaggernauts that help each other out by posting promo codes, and other information as they find it! The image below shows a shot of my ledger that I took the other day. 100 points is equal to $1.00 for most gift card denominations (there are specials sometimes!) You earn Swag Bucks by taking legit surveys, trying new products and services, referrals,playing games, watching short videos, and other ways of interacting with brands and advertisers. I have had really good luck, and a really good time using this site, and I HIGHLY recommend it anyone who is already spending time doing the types of things that I mentioned. I will leave my referral link below, and also a link to the group on Facebook! I hope this helps someone! Thanks for being with me! If you have any questions, feel free to comment on this article, E-mail me, or connect with me on social media!

missed writing to you all so much during 2015. Sadly, just as I was getting the ball rolling with my reviews, and fan base, the only working computer I had just completely crapped out on me, and I have not been able to comfortably write long posts, so I kind of gave up on my dream! However, the world has a way of working itself out, and I have a working laptop again! Yay!! I have many events, changes, updates, and so much more to tell you guys about! I hope you gals can bare with me over the next couple of weeks, while I get back into the swing of things and get you all caught up on the happenings! I did want to share with you that I have recently created a You Tube Channel! I made a video for a site called Influenster.com. I did an un-boxing for them on my new laptop, thinking that I was not able to record audio and visuals at the same time, luckily, I was wrong, and I am preparing to do some more videos in better quality. I am doing this YouTube channel to break out of my shell, and get rid of some of the anxiety I have about being myself on camera. I am saving up for an I-Phone, so that I will have better video quality as well! I would love it if you guys could check out my channel, and subscribe to me as well! I will be back in the next day or two, with my first new article! Thanks for sticking with me, lovelies!
