When I was growing up, my mom didn’t teach me a lot about “girly stuff,” which included how to apply and wear makeup. She never wore a lot of makeup from what I can remember, so everything that I learned I had taught myself or read in magazines. I never had gotten color matched to make sure that my foundation was the right shade for my skin or if it was the right kind of formula; I pretty much just eye balled it and went about my way. I use to wear makeup frequently during my junior high (middle school) and high school years, but as I got a bit older I stopped wearing it as much and honestly, I think it has a lot to do with me gaining weight and just not feeling pretty enough even to wear makeup! The other day I decided to head to the MAC cosmetics counter to get color matched and have someone do my makeup, I loved the results! [CONTINUE READING...]
I am the type of person that HATES taking pills. I will end up missing medication that I’m supposed to take because I won’t want to take a pill. I am also the type of person that waits until the last possible second to take medication for a headache or pain because I hate taking pills. So, I was excited when I was approached by a company, that specializes in medication in powder form, and asked to try out their fast acting powders. [CONTINUE READING...]
One of the product areas that I really enjoy featuring is pets. My Corgis, Bella and Max, are my life and are pretty much treated like human children (if I had any!). They are spoiled rotten and only get the best in food, treats, toys and other times. They love it when I receive packages because they always assume it is for them and some times, it is; lucky for them, Blissful Reviews has a great relationship with Chewy.Com so they get to try out great products every month.

Recently, I got the chance to preview a yet to be released trailer of an upcoming Vince Vaughn movie, Delivery Man. It is about an underachiever who finds out that he has fathered 533 children through anonymous donations to a fertility clinic 20 years ago. He is faced with the decision whether or not he wants to come forward when 142 of the children file a lawsuit to reveal his identity. After watching the trailer, I have to say that I am excited about the release of the movie, which comes out in theaters on November 22nd, 2013. It looks like a heart warming story touching on a topic that has made headlines in recent news. It also makes you realize that family comes in all shapes and sizes! Take a peek at the trailer below and let me know what you think:

Part of becoming a more healthy individual means that I must take the time to research different products that will help me be successful in my quest; products such as vitamins and supplements can be helpful in the process of losing weight and helping one achieve a healthy lifestyle because they help balance the lack of vitamins or nutrients in the areas that you struggle in. Taking vitamins and supplements doesn’t come easy for me for a couple of reasons: 1) I hate taking pills, 2) I am forgetful when it comes to taking a pill daily (even when prescribed, sometimes), and 3) I like to know what I am putting into my body and I am sometimes weary of the supplements on the market even if some have had good reviews. These reasons did not subside when I was given the chance to try out three different supplements from Quality of Life, but backed with the information and research sent to me along with the products, I felt comfortable giving them a chance!

On May 2nd, 2013 I got engaged to my boyfriend, Alan, of six years. It has been a long time coming and I am so glad that I finally get to start planning the first huge event of my life: my wedding! I was super excited when he asked because it meant that I could start looking, officially, for all things wedding. It just so happened that I came across a wonderful opportunity from The House of Bachelorette around the time I started looking for wedding related opportunities and I knew I had to reach out about featuring them on Blissful Reviews. I am so glad they said yes and had a lovely “Bride to Be” sash sent to me for review purposes. [CONTINUE READING...]
