Another Great Family Gift From Best Buy & Cannon

I am that mom...the one who always has her camera in front of her face but is never in any pictures!  I say if you are going to document your families events why do it with a substandard camera?  This is another family gift that I think is such a great investment that it's something you should consider if you take a lot of pictures.  The best part about a great digital camera is you have more flexibility with what you do with your pictures after you take them.  Sure you can create online albums but what if you want to print them.  Sometimes a picture will look great on the screen but the quality when it's printed does not match.  I love to create photo books (mostly from Shutterfly) and many pictures I've taken don't come out as nice as I'd hoped for.

Best Buy is the ultimate destination for the latest cameras to capture your holiday memories. The Canon EOS Rebel T5i is one of the best-selling DSLRs. This camera makes advanced photography easy and fun, and gives you exceptional image quality, along with a host of features to enhance your creative expression.

  • Capture Hollywood caliber full HD video
  • Continuous autofocus while taking HD video
  • Features an 18.0-megapixel CMOS sensor and a DIGIC 5 image processor to ensure vivid, crystal-clear images.
  • The 3" vari-angle touch screen simplifies navigation.
Save $150 on the Canon EOS Rebel T5i at Best Buy*. Visit Best Buy to learn more.
*offer valid 12/7-12/20

Do you love twitter parties? Best Buy is hosting a Canon Twitter Party on Thursday December 18th at 7pm CST. Feel free to join this party for a chance to receive Best Buy gift cards and other great prizes. Tweet #HintingSeason with your top gifts that you want this Holiday from Best Buy.

Influenster Love - How it all started

Where do I start?

Influenster is the the WHOLE reason I started this blog.  I joined Influenster and honestly forgot about it.  Then one day I got an email saying I was selected to get a VoxBox.  I remember thinking "What the heck is a VoxBox?  And why am I getting one?"  I did a quick search and found myself on the site and started to get really excited!  It all came back to me.  It had been about 2 months since I first signed up on the site and now I was getting a whole box of FREE STUFF!!  WOOO HOOO!!!  Then I soon realized that to fully complete the VoxBox tasks I needed a blog and thus Laurel Likes It was born.

Since then I have received numerous VoxBoxes (6 to be exact) and several other activities that have earned me badges (51 of these babies).  Here is a link to my Influenster Profile.  I look back at my initial reviews and see how much I've grown and how my style has stayed consistent but more comfortable now.

I have to be honest that when I see an Influenster email in my inbox I get ridiculously excited.  It's like, "They chose me??  YES!!"  Come to think of it, it's been a while since I got one so maybe posting this will hit their alert!  I have always loved trying out new things and now Influenster allows me to!  I have also always been a "very social young lady" as said on all my report cards so talking about the stuff I like and don't like comes naturally!

I have listed all the Influester inspired blog posts for you below.
Influenster Holiday VoxBox 2012
Quaker Real Medleys Oatmeal Review
Goody Quickstyle Brush Review (I am still using this brush everyday)
Lifeway Kefir Review and Coupon (we now buy this regularly)
Dr. Scholl's Active Series (These are still in my sneakers)
Influenster Spring Fling Vox Box Unboxing!

Influenster will always hold a special place in my blog heart.  I hope that these past 2 years are just the start to a wonderful, long relationship.

And also this guy is the cutest!

Side note:  As I was typing this post up guess what popped up in my inbox??

New Changes to Julep Maven + Free Gift!!

So I'm so excited for 2 new changes to my Julep Maven subscription!! I was getting a little tired of the choices I was given each month so 2 months ago I used my last skip and then last month I sent my box to my sister for her birthday.

When I opened my email this morning to a new blog post from them I was pleasantly surprised that not only can you now select "I'm out this month" you can FULLY customize what you get in your box without upgrading to the Luxe subscription!!!

When Julep Maven first started they allowed you to have unlimited skips. However, before I joined they changed it so you only had 2 skips per year. This did not work for me and apparently I was not the only one! Sometimes the funds are just not right that month, right??

I have to say though that I am most excited for the customization. I was just able to select 3 items that I have wanted but have yet to come up in my monthly box! I was set to get an eye lid primer and eye shadow. Now I'm getting some gold decal strips, nail and cuticle pen and a corrector pen.

New for this holiday season are two promotional FREE gifts when you sign up for Julep Maven!  This subscription is the PERFECT gift for someone you just don't know what to get.  They are able to choose what they want!

My idea is to either gift the subscription and keep the free gift for yourself!
OR  just keep it all as a gift to yourself!!  You deserve it, right??

Clear Proof Review & Free gift!

This is a post I have been meaning to put up for a while but haven't gotten around to it.  I have ALWAYS struggled with my skin.  It is oily/dry/sensitive/acne prone.  I feel like I have tried so many products that there is nothing out there that will work.  My skin was much better while I was on birth control which tells me what I get it mostly hormonal but since we are tying for #2 I can't rely on that anymore.  I get deep painful acne from what I have read is called Cystic Acne.  It's not just my face either.  My chest and back are a mess also.

I was so frustrated a few months ago I got out of the shower and was so disgusted with my skin I swore in the morning I was going to call a dermatologist.  So that night I was chatting with my good friend we were talking and she suggested that I stop trying all these different products and give Clear Proof a chance.  I told her that I had tried using products with salicylic acid and benzoyl peroxide and had no luck.  How could this product be any different??
I figured what the heck, and told her I would try it.  She gave me the travel kit to try out so I didn't shell out a whole lot of money just to try it.  I used that up and saw some improvement so I called and let her know I'd like the full set.  It took a few weeks of regular use but my skin is clear!  Now because I am unbiased and am always honest with you I will say that I still get some breakouts right before "that time of the month" but it is much less than before.  At first I was just using my hands to clean my face but what really took it up a notch was using the cleansing brush.  I think this really scrubbed down into my pores and pulled out the dirt.

The system is simple.  Wash, tone, spot treat and moisturize.  The combination 1-2 punch of the salicylic acid in the wash and benzoyl peroxide in the spot treatment gets the job done.  Here is a link to the travel set that I started with.  Clear Proof® Acne System The Go Set

It is only $20 and comes with mini bottles of all 4 steps.  It should last you a few weeks because you really don't need that much of the product.  However, the full Clear Proof® Acne System is a much better deal at $45 when you look at the size of the bottles.  I've had my set for a few months now and am just now running low.

I also didn't want to forget about the Skinvigorate™ Cleansing Brush.  It's a little pricey at $50 but I have to say that is what helped so much with the process!  Honestly compared to some of the other cleansing brushes this one is a steal!

Loretta is a big fan of my blog so she is giving my readers a special deal.  Another reason why you should order the full set is that when you do you will also get a FREE LIP GLOSS GIFT SET!!  Or, if you order both the full Clear Proof® Acne System and the Skinvigorate™ Cleansing Brush you'll get the lip gloss set and this gorgeous bag.  Keep them for yourself or gift them to a lovely lady in your life!  Just put in code LAURELXMAS.

So, now what you have been waiting to see, even though it is so embarrassing.  Sorry the lighting is different.  I took the before picture at work and the after picture in my bathroom in the evening.
