Klout Perks- Freeman Feeling Beautiful Masks

I was happy to receive 3 masks to try out from Freeman Beauty & Klout


I wanted to try one out before I started multi-masking ( when you use 2 or even 3 of their masks at once)

How multi-masking works : If you have a oily t-zone , but are dry on your cheeks, neck, and chest. You could use a clay mask on your t-zone & gel mask everywhere else.

Avocado & Oatmeal Clay Mask – Its a super star for your T-Zone or oily spots that helps pull toxins from the skin.


You keep it on 10-15 minutes until it dries, then wash off with warm water. I liked this mask because it didn’t burn or tingle like some masks. I also liked when I washed it off it didn’t make my skin feel dried out. It also left my skin feeling soft & clean.

Next I tried the #multimask

I used the Avocado & Oatmeal Mask for my T-Zone since its good for that area that tend to be more oily.

Then I tried for the first time Charcoal & Black Sugar Facial Polishing Mask which is good for dull or dry patched and your cheeks tend to be more dry.

When I start putting it on a felt a warm sensation, which I liked . It was a little difficult to apply to face . The sugar wasn’t harsh on the skin an left my face smooth & clean.


Cucumber Facial Peel- off Mask
This one is for all over total renewal.

I didn’t really like this one because it was a little messy and really sticky. The consistency was like a really thick sticky gel, which made it a little difficult to spread over my face. It did leave my skin really soft though . I didn’t take a photo with it on me because I look weird lol 🙂 but did get it off on one go


Overall I liked these masks. They left my skin feeling clean, smooth , & soft.
My favorite was the avocado & oatmeal mask it was soothing , not as messy, and didn’t leave my skin dried out.
Next would be the charcoal & black sugar mask. A little weird to apply but I liked that it helped exfoliate but wasn’t harsh on the skin .
Last would be the cucumber mask due to the messy application.
I didn’t check to see how much a tube of these would be but the packets are $1.99 each.


I was given a free product or sample because I’m a klout influencer . I am under no obligation to receive the sample or talk about this company. I get no additional benefits for talking about the product or company.

Which one is your favorite?

Creamy broccoli white bean soup

I always want to make broccoli soup but it seems like all the recipes have milk or cream.

Well I found this recipe on….you guessed int pinterest > Creamy Broccoli White Bean Soup <

I changed it up a bit , like I always do.




Chicken Stock instead of veggie stock because its what I had on hand ( doubled it up)

2 cans of small white beans

I also sprinkled a bit a cheddar cheese in the middle, more so to add color for this photo haha but still would be tasty.

Definitely adding this one to my favorites.

Its so easy to make and I love that it has few ingredients.

I did have a little mishap while blending I didn’t put the top on and when I hit liquify, the soup shot up and knocked my hand off the lid! lol Only a little mess thank goodness 🙂

Also I got a new festive bowl !



Cottonelle Poems

On crowdtap we had to come up with a poem . I ended up with two because while in the process some things didn’t work but I liked the line so kept it.

Here is what I came up with:


When your in the bathroom going number one or two,
use Cottonelle toilet paper to feel clean & new.
Then use the fresh care wipe,
it will only take one swipe.
Now you’re fresh & oh so clean
because no messes are left to be seen.


If you go #1 or #2,
make sure you use Cottonelle TP to wipe your pee & poo.
The toilet paper is so soft & strong,
You can go no wrong.
Then use the fresh care wipes to feel extra clean.
It will make you feel special and leave what you did unseen.
You will feel real fresh because there is no more mess
and you’re off to go ,
with a pep in your step.

Smiley 360- Airborne gummies review

So I was picked for “mission” from Smiley 360 . They sent me Airborne gummies for free to try out but my opinions are my own.


Airborne is packed with a unique blend of vitamins, minerals, herbs, & a blast of vitamin C to support your immune system.

Here is what is in these gummies:

  • Vitamin C: Antioxidants that go to work on the cellular level to quench free radicals and support cellular health.  Vitamin C also supports the function of immune cells throughout your body.
  • Vitamin E: Naturally-occurring antioxidant nutrients that inactivate harmful free radicals
  • Vitamin A: Phyto-nutrients that work as antioxidants, on the cellular level, to promote immunity and protect DNA
  • Zinc: An essential nutrient that works as a trigger for over 200 different enzymes and supports the number and function of several different immune cells.
  • Selenium, Manganese, Magnesium: All minerals that support immunity

There are 3 flavors in the bottle ; Citrus, Mixed Berry, & Grapefruit.

I usually don’t like grapefruit but it was really good , so were the other flavors.

There are other ways to support your immune system if gummies aren’t your thing. You can also choose chewables & effervescnce ( the fast acting tablets you put in your drink).

The bottle I received had 21 gummies for around $7

On the bottle it says to take up to 3 a day .

I find that the only con for this product because its only a weeks worth of gummies and $1 a day.

If you would like to try them yourself here is a $1 coupon

Remember for a great immune system you exercise, get enough sleep, practice good hygiene ( I always carry hand sanitizing spray with me all the time), try to stay away from processed foods , eat more fruits , eat more veggies & stay hydrated .

I would say if you are traveling a lot or will be around a lot of people and would like to up your vitamin C intake, I would say getting Airborne would be a good idea but I can’t see taking it everyday. It would be good to get them now especially with the holiday right around the corner.

Have you tried Airborne before ?


Random Food I havent shared


Spider Cookies. Made these for Halloween. Chocolate Cookies, Chocolate sprinkles on top, pretzel sticks for legs, mini M&Ms for eyes

I used to go to this place D’angelos by my old apartment but they shut down and I was pretty sad. I loved their Thanksgiving Sandwich. So I decided I can make that myself. Toasted portuguese roll, stuffing, cranberry sauce, mashed potatoes,  & sliced turkey & gravy YUMMY!


I believe the recipe was from Alton brown. Made these for Thanksgiving one year. Always a hit 🙂


I made this for Easter one year, was really good. Angel lush  with pinapple

1 can ( 20 oz) Crushed Pineapple in juice, undrained

1 cup thawed whipped cream

Prepared round angel good cake

Berry of your choice ( strawberry/blueberry/raspberry)

Mix dry pudding mix & pineapple with juice in a medium bowl.Gently stir whipped cream.

Cut prepared cake into  3 layers.

Place first layer on plate, spread 1 cup of pudding mixture

Place second , spread another cup of pudding mixture

Place last layer spread with the rest of pudding mixture

top with berries ( or like I did in the photo in all layers)

Refrigerate for an hour


One Fall/Winter I was on a cookie kick. I know these are oatmeal & chocolate chip but not sure what fruit is in it ( either cranberries, cherries or blueberries) I did them all and they were great


Spagetti squash lasagna dish. So yummy!  Spaghetti squash, chicken sausage, tomatoes, mozz cheese ( forgot the rest, will have to find the recipe)


I know this is my friends plate because there is one piece of broccoli lol. Love making turkey burgers. I make them different each time. In these was probably some grated carrots, diced onions, garlic salt, pepper topped with mushrooms and mozz cheese.
