As of November 2013, Rimmel London added to their line a new mascara called ScandalEyes Retro Glam Mascara. This new mascara gives you the bold, wide eye, false lash look that looks amazing both day and night.

Thanks to Infuenster I was able to test this product in my RoseVoxBox I got in November. I have been using ScandalEyes Retro Glam Mascara ever since. I am not high on putting on makeup but this went on so good and lasted through out the day that I used at every opportunity I got. So I decided to share this in this short yet sweet blogpost.

See below how I went from ordinary to extra-retro-ordinary in one swipe:

This was my day look, and you can clearly see a big difference in how bold and inviting my eyes look. How Scandalous!!!!.. If this isn't bold enough for you, I suggest that you do my little trick. This is a quick trick to get an even bolder look; you shimmy the mascara brush left to right twice, then one stroke from back to front from the top then lastly another stroke back to front from the bottom. That should dazzle you even more.

This is my evening look, with a little bit of eyeliner and eyeshadow along with your ScandalEyes Retro Glam Mascara, you should see the nightlights in your eyes. I would definitely recommend this product if these are the types of looks that you are going for. Remember how easy and quick it is to achieve and that is why I love this product.

Dr Scholls Does It Cozy

I was able to try once again another amazing Dr Scholls product from Influenster in my #RoseVoxBox. This time it is Dr Scholls For Her Cozy Cushions. It is for your boots, booties, loafers and flats, not heels this time around. It was perfect timing because winter seem to have come earlier than usual so I was already wearing my boots and I don't like boots (I'm a summer baby).
Those insoles can be trimmed for a better fit and to make it easier to put into the shoes. It has a rubber sole which makes the transition from one shoe to another smooth and without damage. On top of the rubber sole there is the white cushion which makes walking in boots alot Moe comfortable and warmer. I personally wear them in my train boots and timberlands.
I recommend those insoles to those who find boots especially uncomfortable and looking for added warmth based on my experience. On average it cost about $12.00 at your local drugstores such as walgreens or you can get them at target or Wal-Mart. The price is reasonable for the quality and longevity you get out of the insoles. You can also get coupons on their website -- Dr. Scholls

New PUMA Mobium


New Puma Mobium Athletic Shoes & ACTV Apparel

I was more than privy to test out Puma New Line - Mobium shoes and ACTV apparel from Crowdtap and Puma.

So in my package I received Puma Mobium shoes, V Neck Training Tee, Training Jacket & ACTV Long Tights.

First I want to talk to all runners, joggers or power walkers and even those who just love to workout. This is perfect for all women who want to be comfortable, be seen and be stylish.

Puma Mobium Sneakers

If you are a Puma fan like I am you will love these shoes because they are so comfy because of the cushion inside and the overall shape that perfects the fit. When you are running I can almost guarantee that you will run longer when wearing those shoes. I normally run on average a mile a day and walk about 2 miles to and from walk then go up about another dozen flight of stairs. When I first wore them I felt energized and there was an obvious pep in my step.

My favorite pieces are the ACTV tights. It has athletic tape strategically placed so that you are able to workout or run at your best therefore improving your performance. The areas it targets are your shin, the thigh, your calf, Achilles tendon and your glute. This helps you during exercise and after exercise to maximize your energy.

The jacket is pretty amazing also if you pay attention to detail while doing what it needs to. Besides being comfortable it is also breathable (if you notice the second picture featuring the underarm). It also has reflectors (sterilite) all over for running at night and also features several secure pockets for you phone or ipods while running.
I hope you appreciate the full picture of my PUMA gear. Comfy yet fashionable. It is highly recommended for all. You can find the links for purchase below:

Not Trivial Truvia

Many of us use sweeteners in our coffee, tea, drinks on a regular. But do we really know what we are putting in our drinks. I have heard people say it is just sugar and it is sweet but do not understand what it contains. And I also used to be one of those people. Once it sweetened my coffee or tea I was satisfied. But after doing diligent research I have found that so many sweeteners contain substances like "Aspartame" & " Saccharine".

I recently found TRUVIA Natural Sweetener which is made from the Stevia plant. I can go into a detailed description but Truvia website has a more colorful explanation for your eyes. But for a short description the Ingredients include Erythritol, Stevia Leaf Extract and Natural Flavors. A lot less complicated compared to other sweeteners don't you think.

Thanks to Crowdtap and Truvia I was able to try complimentary  and share with my family and friends what Truvia Natural Sweetener has to offer.

My favorite thing about Truvia is that it comes as Baking Blend also (Truvia mixed with sugar), which is awesome because what ever you are making will bake and brown with less calories. Here are the cupcakes I made with Truvia Baking Blend.

  I love a good cup of tea in the morning and I always tend to add lots of sugar, but now with Truvia I only use two packets of their sugar and it is just as great. I always tend to carry a couple of packets in my bag for my convenience.

For those persons who don't like having packets around (even though it is quite convenient), Truvia Sweetener comes in the spoonable container which are great for you home.

Here are a few links to help you learn more about Truvia:

Hope you had fun learning more about Truvia... Enjoy!!!

TMI - City of Bones (Movie Review)

I want to start this off by saying Thank You to Crowdtap for allowing me complimentary access to this movie.

Now lets begin.

In order to appreciate a book you must first be able to put yourself in that book and let your imagination and the tale of the book become one. So I read The Mortal Instruments: City of Bones book before I went to watch the movie. I was anxious and excited that the movie was coming out since I was a fan of the book. I started wondering what effects that would come alive from my vivid imagination, what the characters would look like and would the story play out the same.

I have honestly never been a fan of books to movies because in the past I have been disappointed. And guess what, I was yet again. Despite my enthusiasm that was expressed in many forms I was truly hoping for it to be a blow out and to be able to draw in new fans. It did not live up to my expectations and not to say that it was a bad movie, it just wasn't the images that needed to come to life. However, it is definitely worth the watch. Many people who have not read the book will be drawn into the story of being a Mundane, Shadowhunter and a Downworlder. It takes a lot though to meet the standards that I have played out in my head.

All the actors did an amazing job as to bringing the characters to life especially Lily Collins as Clary. She is able to pull us into her drama, confusion, turmoil and mixed emotions without a glitch.

See full cast list here: TMI: City of Bones

Definitely a must see movie for the summer

Olay Fresh Effects BB Cream

Olay BB Cream Review from DaisyRay Jaxxson on Vimeo.


Olay Fresh Effects BB Cream has many benefits for someone who would like to have light coverage without applying makeup. It is a Blemish Balm but more so a tinted moisturizer. Here are the 6 main benefits below:
  1. Refreshes - It gives your face a renewed look after it has been applied and that last all day which is a plus.
  2. Brightens - It gives your face a glow without the shine. I know for me I hate to see my face oily, which is easy with my combination skin so I don't need my moisturizer to add to that shine.
  3. Evens Tone - Once you apply and massage this BB Cream all over your face, you will notice that your face will have an overall more natural even tone with light coverage over scars & blemishes.
  4. Hydrates - It is a tinted moisturizer that last through out the day. It doesn't just absorb into the skin but seeps in to maintain the moisture.
  5. Smoothes - After one application you will see a difference in how your face looks and feels. The light coverage it provides makes your face give off a more smoother look while hiding imperfections.
  6. Protects - With the added SPF 15 your face is protected from UV Rays while out and about.
 Olay Fresh Effects BB Cream is a must buy!!! If you looking for all the benefits mentioned above in one, Olay Fresh Effects BB Cream is what you need especially if you looking for that #nofilter look.  My video above will show why...Enjoy!!!

CourtYard Hounds presents AMELITA


Amelita Track Listing:
  1. Sunshine
  2. Amelita
  3. The World Smiles
  4. Aimless Upward
  5. Guy Like You
  6. Rock All Night
  7. Phoebe
  8. Divided
  9. Gets You Down
  10. Watch Your Step
  11. The Road You Take

"I love this band...the way we explore new aspects of ourselves and what we can expect from each other, both musically and as people," says Martie. "We are close. Plus, being on the road and being in the studio is like my spa from the everyday challenges of just being a mom.

After a few years away from the limelight and the Dixie Chicks, the two sisters were ready to get back into the studio with the creation of Court Yard Hounds. Amelita, out now, marks the Court Yard Hounds' second album.

I have listened to this album over and over again and it never gets old. It has something for everyone, whether you are just coming out of a relationship heartbroken, or going into a brand new one with new love or even being married with long love. Amelita could be one of my favorite songs on there. The chorus lyrics:

"I take your hand, let’s go tonight
Just leave it all, I promise you’ll
Be fine across the bridge, the lights of town
You smile, and never turn around
I remember you and Amelita
Have you no pride?
You’ve got the rest of your life"

It takes you a different place that can help you start over. Every female needs that song she can go to that kind of motivates you to know that its ok to move on. This album creates a mood for all to enjoy. It takes you back to a time when you were at school and girls were just horrible to a guy breaking you down. The CourtYard Hounds have a come a long way from their first album. This album is amazing and I have to keep repeating this. Even if you never heard CourtYard Hounds and heard Amelita you would instantly fall in love. I recommend this album to listen to for going on roadtrips, cleaning times or just sitting on the subway on your way to work.

#SurprisinglyGood SunDrop Dropping




Thanks to Crowdtap I was able to share my knowledge of SunDrop soda with my friends and family.

^^^^^ This was my package I received. Lovely right.... I know. Anyway back to my #SurprisinglyGood party details. So we had the party at another party (basically an excuse for the adults to come together at a kids party). This blog is to give you my review on SunDrop soda *especially if you live in New York City*

Preparing for the party was easy because we had the music, the food, the games but not the SunDrop soda. It was sooooo difficult finding this soda in Brooklyn, NY, even going all the way out to Long Island to walmart and still not get any. This was my only problem which made the day difficult in getting pictures from my party which sucked. I waited so long for my sister in law who came from Philadelphia, PA to bring it out to us and by that time my phone died. I don't want to do a comparison based on other sodas since I am not sure what you all like. I am just going to let you know what I thought about it.


1. Taste -  It has a lemon lime flavor which is not overwhelmed by the carbonated fizz. It is not sweet but has a bang to your palette. Overall you must love the flavor because it cannot go wrong if you drink sodas.

2. Packaging -  It stands out n the shelf at any grocery store in the aisle. The colors red, green and yellow are not popular (well maybe the green), and the name is bright and bold on the can so it can't be missed.


1. Location -  I would have loved to find it in all the supermarkets. It was so hard to get it out in the city and we get everything even those sodas I never heard of.

2. Advertising -  I honestly would love to see more advertising on tv, billboards and radio for SunDrop in the city, maybe that way more stores will carry it.

Overall, my group of friends and family enjoyed the games (Charades). Next time I must get my pictures and vine in early enough. We all had an amazing time and wish to see more from the SunDrop Family at Crowdtap. Lets get ready for another round.!!! Hip Hooray for SunDrop!!

Dr. Scholl's® For Her High Heel Insoles

Imagine going to an early morning meeting with your best work heels and thinking its going to be a long day sigh.... What do you do or how do you approach this without taking your shoes off after you sit. I have found a solution that not only aids but improves the feel of your feet in high heels. So I'm here to do a review on Dr Scholls For Her High Heel Insoles which I received compliments Influenster in my SunKissed VoxBox.

I had the opportunity of trying out Dr Scholls For Her High Heel Insoles and at first try to be honest it wasn't what I expected because for me, I wanted instant magic (pain free) to happen. But after wearing it through out the day I didn't even notice I was in heels. First off my shoes were tight in the front, so if your shoes aren't wide enough in the front do not expect relief from the insoles. It is meant to give your heel and ball of your feet comfort with the added gel cushion. It comes as a pair so please read on the insole which one is left and which is right.

My day experience with Dr Scholls For Her High Heel Insoles was me going to a wedding on a Friday from 1pm to 9pm and note well that it was the hottest day of the year. From the moment I put it on I had to get used to the extra gel cushion in my high heels and that was really quick and it was extremely comfortable. My heels were 6 inches and I have never worn these heels without taking them off after 2 hours of constant wear and that doesn't necessarily include walking. From the time we left the house I can tell there was a big difference in the feel. We went to the church service and my heels were still on. From 4:30 pm we were on to the reception and still my heels were on. I was able to go through the entire wedding (church service & reception) without complaining or even removing my heels.

A couple of things I would like you to remember and note when buying this. It is thin enough to be used for all heel types which includes sandal type heels, pumps and wedges. If you are unable to buy one for each pair of heels they can be used from one pair to another by easily being removed without any sticky adhesive residue or damage. All in all the experience using Dr Scholls For Her High Heel Insoles was amazing and would recommend this product and others from the Dr Scholls line. Visit DrScholls. This is made for women on the go, who are always in heels and want total comfort.
