HEAD & SHOULDERS NEW DAMAGE RESCUE is a Freebie I was able to score through INFLUENSTER.  If you haven't been following my last post, INFLUENSTER is a program that let's  you try out products for free and all they ask is for your opinion.  Also they have these cool badge challenges you can compete in to score more free stuff.  Anyhow, this time I was lucky to be selected to try out the new HEAD & SHOULDERS NEW DAMAGE RESCUE. As you can see above my husband uses the Men's HEAD & SHOULDERS, so I was excited to try this product since it's made for women and for damaged hair like mine.  I suffer from EXTREMELY FRIZZY HAIR!!!! UGH, but I must say that I did notice a difference after I use the HEAD & SHOULDERS NEW DAMAGE RESCUE. My hair was smoother, shinier and less frizzier. I would definitely recommend this product to my friends and family to try...It's cool to have a dandruff shampoo geared to woman. Woman have dandruff too but the stuff that's on the market is too strong and smells like medicine.  The HEAD & SHOULDERS NEW DAMAGE RESCUE smells great. So Go out and give it a try and let me know how you like it.For more information about INFLUENSTER go to For more information about the product go to They have a contest going on too, so check it out!

Influester has revamped their page.  At first i was a bit overwhelmed I must admit, I heard there were a lot of changes coming but I wasn't expecting a whole new set up.  It took some getting us to. There is lots to do.  First change is that there is a new rating system.  Each area (Beauty, Mommy, ECT) has it's own rating system. Bad news more work, good news more chances to get in a program. It's pretty much the same thing, just broken down in sections.  I think they did this to give more people chances to be able to qualify for boxes.  It's still the same set up when it comes to getting a box invite. You still test the products out and tell your Friends about it, use social media to spread the word, and still do the brand challenges. Also you still have the surveys too.. You now have the options to post reviews on many more products which also can boost your score up. The goal is to get to "100"...I am working hard...currently I am "61" :-( guess I gotta get moving. But overall I love Influenster, still do...the program is a great opportunity to try new products for FREE and you get chances to win more FREE stuff, by doing what you regularly do when you like a product...SPREED THE WORD....So if your not already a member your nuts....go runnnn to your computer and sign up at and become a member. what do you have to lose it's all FREE! NOW GO!

NYC New York Color

Super Shiny and Glossy NYC was surprisingly a good product.  This brand is extremely low cost and gives a bang for your buck.  For under $5.00 you get a product that has pure pigments that creates a  3-D gloss effect.  It's something that I can totally rock, gym, or date night with the hubby ;-)This product proves that you can look great with having to spend lots of $$$.  I would recommend giving this a try.  This product can even be matched with certain lipstick to give it added shine and smoothness.  If you want to check out NYC makeup line go to:  I received this product from Influester for testing purposes .  Want to join the testing gang at Influenster go to

VEET wax strips

Yes those are my legs and yes they look fabu because I waxed them! I use to be a die hard shave my legs kind of girl, but the universe spoke and thought it was time for a change.  In My Influenster Latina VoxBox I got a box of Veet Waxing Strips.  I have to admit I was nervous at first...I mean I still tear up when I go to the salon and get my eyebrows and I figured that I would embrassess my self in public if my first time getting my legs was would be at a waxing salon.  So my husband was gone for the weekend and I figure this would be a good of time if any.  It was super easy, you first take a strip and rub the strip in your hands to make it warm.  Then you peel the strip and place on the area you want to wax and pull of quickly.  I was a sight for sore eyes with my teeth clamped down and my eyes close, I was wanting for ultimate pain, but I was surpirze to find it was PAINLESS...What..LOL.  It also comes with a oil base "Perfect Finish Wipe" to remove any excess wax and I find it shines up your legs nicely.  I have Sensitive skin and it worked great for me since it's a sensitive formula.  It also has Almond Oil & Vitamin E in it which is a plus.  So the true test would come when my husband came home from his weekend trip...I asked him to rub my legs...He did..and he said " wow that's really smooth"...I smiled...mission waxed on Friday and Sunday night I was still smooth...with a razor I would have not have been so smooth...Woohoo! Want skily smooth legs...well what are you waiting out and get the Waxing...and put it to the test yourself...and here's an early "Your Welcome"...Cause I know you'll be thanking me later when your guy is loving your smooth legs;-)
I received this product complimentary for testing and review purposes from Influenster . If you want more information on Veet Waxing Stripes go to

Bath & Body Works NEW & Improved Shower Gel

I was so lucky to get a bottel of Bath & Body Works Sweet Pea Shower Gel in my Latina VoxBox from Influenster.  I already am a Loyal Bath & Body Works Customer already so this was a real treat.  I love their products and they are priced reasonable for the quality that you get in their products.  My favorite is usually the Japanes Cherry Blossom, but recieveing The Sweet Pea Scent was a nice change. I like that it's has a light smell perfect for a summer or spring time scent. They also have other great scents to try..I recommed going into shop and testing out a few scents to see what scent fits you and don't be bashful either, in every Bath &Body Works store I've enter it's always been a wonderful experience. Their staff members are always at hand to help you find the products you need and they are very knowledgeable and happy to help.  Many of these products are enriched with Shea Butter, Aloe Vera, and Vitiam E, so it's so good for your skin. It lathers up really good in the shower and you don't have to use alot which makes the bottle last longer.  Usually I like buying gifts at Bath & Body Works, so I am thinking this new scent I've tryed will be very familiar to a few people around christmas time(wink..wink). So I would recommend giving it a try, I like it  and I think you would too. If you want to check them out yourself online go to I've received this product complimentary to test through Influenster’s VoxBox program and if you want to join Influenster don't forget to go to thanks Bath &Body Works and Influenster!   

My Latina Beauty VoxBox from Influenster

This is my Latina Beauty VoxBox from Influenster. I was so excited to hear that i was selected to recieve another box( since this site is becoming more and more popular, it's becoming a little harder to get selected...but I am super happy for a chance to try out these goodies).  Anywho...In my box I got a Full size box of Veet waxing strips, Always Radiant Pads, A super cute pouch with Always Radiant Tampons, A full size tube of NYC Lip Gloss, a samll bottel of Bath&Body Works Sweer Pea Shower Gel, and a small bottel of Hawaiian Tropic Silk Hydration sun lotion. I was super excited when I got this box since a lot of the products I got I was already interested in trying or I was already  using them.  The Most exciting product I got would have to be the Veet Waxing Strips.  I had never waxed my legs before and was a traditional razor girl when it came to my legs.  I had always wanted to try waxing my legs, but was too scared it would hurt and I would embrassess my self at a waxing salon for crying and screaming to now I get to try it at home where if needed I can punk out and cry in the comfort of my own home...Wish me luck...

The many uses of Ivory

In my Influenster box I got a bar of Ivory Soap.  I have been useing Ivory ever since I was a little girl and now my little girl uses it.  She loves the smell of it and the fact that it's gentle on her sensitive skin is such a plus.  I love that this soap is inexpensive, for such a quality product you get your money's worth when buying this product.  Over the years where other products have changed and decrease the amount you buy...Ivory has never changed.  The soap bar reminds large and free from any harsh chemical that can irritate your skin.  Ivory is a trusted brand in my house that I will continue to over the years to come.  I recently learned that their are many uses for an Ivory Soap Bar.  It can be used as a facial cleanser, body cleanser, clothes and stain remover, laundry flakes, and even as a soap carving project.  Check them out on FB or Twitter for other cool ideas how to use Ivory Soap.  I would definely recommend this soap to try it and enjoy.  I received this product complimentary for testing purposes from Influenster and Ivory as a participant in the Mom VoxBox campaign.  Thanks Influenster and Ivory for the freebie!


Quaker Soft Baked Oatmeal Cookies

In my Influenster Mom VoxBox I recieved a Free full size sample of Quaker Soft Baked Oatmeal Cookies.  As you can see from the picture my daughter was very happy when she discovered that mommy was shareing your treat she got in the mail.  I received this product complimentary for testing and review purposes from Influenster and Quaker, so here I go.  This was an awsome cookie. It was soft and it was large.  I was able to share it with my daugther.  We were both very happy with it.  My daughter was asking for more and I promised her that we would go out and buy a box.  This cookie was double the size compairing to other leading brands we tried in the past.  I love the softness of the cookie, it reminded my of fresh bakes cookies, and the best part was that I did not have to bake and clean up a mess.The very next day i went out and bought a box.  I actually warmed the cookie in the mircowave for 5 seconds and added vanilla ice cream as a added treat and my kids loved it.  Best part is that it contains oatmeal so i know that my kids are getting something healthy in them when they are snacking. I would definetly recommend going out and buying a box.  It's under $4 a box and you get your money's worth with quality and size of the cookie. So go out and indulge and enjoy. Thanks Influenster and Quaker for the yummy treat!

"Truvía® natural sweetener Product Review"

Hey guys here is my 2nd product review from my VoxBox from Influenster.  Truvia natural sweetener comes in indiviual packets.  This makes it easy to take where ever you go.  It's 0 Calories!!! Yeaaaa!!! I love this in my tea, coffee, and ice tea.  This is great since I crave sugar alot but I am on a diet.  It's a win-win, I get my sugar fix without all the calories. Woo-hoo!!!! Give it a shot, check them out at:  It's really sweet so you don't have to use alot of it so it last long.  I find that I use more sugar than I do Truvia, so it cuts down on my sugar intake. Like I said give it a shot...what do you have to lose, except a few pounds...who can argue with that.  Thanks again for the free full size sample!!     

“Venus & Olay Razor"

Being part of the Influenster’s VoxBox program is wonderful.  As per my earlier entry I let you guys know about how I was lucky to get picked to get a free VoxBox From  Inside I got a few items to try out.  This blogg is dedicated to Gillette Venus & Olay Razor.  This is a new product and I love it.  Sometimes I have to rush and go, but my legs shouldn't suffer social sucide.  This razor is great.  No soap or shaveing cream is needed.  Less mess is best!  shaveing cream can leave awful soap scum in my tub, but this product helps eliminate that.  I highly recommend this product for the girl on the go who wants clean smooth legs.  So what are you waiting for, don't be a hairy poodle...go out and get your own :-)Summer is almost here! Go to there website and check it out : Also for more information about being an Influenster go to :

(2am calls are only for emergenies, young people who have lives(I have no life and I am kncoking on 30), booty calls( n/a since i am married and my booty call sleeps next to me everynite lol), or dumb rude people.  Guess which one I got...So this is the converstion word for word:

My Bird is Dead!

Unfreaking unbelieveable...Ugh Why do I have to wake up to my stuff in front of my house broken, because someone can't watch there kids.  This morning I woke up to my ceramic baby bird figurine broken.  First I thought maybe a cat knocked it over, but the last time I checked, cats don't pick up broken stuff and put it in a basket.  I understand accidents happen, but why they heck was someone playing around in front of my door.  I live in a house not an apartment. Come On!  I just moved here, and this is not how I want to start things off.  I am so tired of seeing my street over crowed with kids and not one adult in sight.  You won't see my kids out there unsupervised.  Go read a book and learn something like not touching other people's stuff!  ugh! just needed to it me or are kids getting badder now-a-days? what's your take?

OMG I am in Love

I am currently on a diet which suck, and it seems like every commerical with fastfood is calling out to me...ugh what's a girl to do. I have given up candy, cookies, chips, and every other yummy fatting desert out there and I am starting to get the shakes (surgar withdrawal).  One day I was watching tv(one of my many reality shows I'm addicted to Ha!) and I saw a commerical for FiberOne Brownie Bar.  They sold me when they said only 90 calories...yikes!!! could it be...will I be able to taste the heavens again of a yummy chocolate delight.  So I ran (really I did) and I grabbed a box of these and did a mad dash to the register(I think I was sweating at this point).  I raced back home at a legal driving speed I hope and ran inside my house to gobble down the goods (don't worry I controled my self to just one (on a side note: I think people who buy diet food and eat the whole box in one sitting are might as well eat the real thing  Well to my delight this was wonderful...I think the heavens opened up and angels flew around me.  It was sooooo freaking good, I am so in love...I think I will survive this diet now as long as I keep finding items like this...go out and get a box of FIBERONE BROWINES....sooo worth it!

Arrrrrrrgggg to people who can't park a car....and I am not talking about parallel parking either. If you can't park between two lines, then you shouldn't have a licence, ride a bike.  Why should I have to try and squeeze into a parking space because someone is too lazy to pull out and ajust their car.  The funny part is that they get angry when your door touches their door.  Really?!! come on!  Usually I just park somewhere else, but when there is no other option and there is no other spaces available..I am left with no other choice but to waste 10 mins of my life to try and fix in a parking space that should have taken me a minute to park...I am so tempted to next time park behind them, block them in, and watch them from a distance get all mad when they get to their car and be like" Ha! you know what is feels like jerk" Anyone Else feels my pain????

Hello out there in CyberWorld! I am Linda Lisa and I have created this blogg to do a number of things, 1. To recap events in my life that really suck (this usually happens alot) and hopefully from my shame, your life will be a little brighter knowing that, thank god I am not "THAT GIRL". 2. To let off steam and rant about the things in life that really "GRINDS MY GEARS" (ex: the large population of dummys that inhabit our lovely planet. 3. To Share Peace and Joy with the World (no not really) but tell you what I am going to do, I'll tell you when I find good deals (Cause I am Cheap(not cheap in that way...ugh get you head out of the gutter) broke is the key word (who isn't now-a-day))....Along this wonderfully sad Journey of my life on this blogg I hope you guys have fun or at least learn from my silly life mistakes.
