[REVIEW] Influenster VoxBox – PUR Water Filter

PUR Water Filter
About two weeks ago I got my PUR stainless steel water filtration system from Influenster and needless to say I love it!

I was stoked to be chosen to receive this filter, but was a bit worried about the installation process when it showed up. Needless to say it literally took me less then 30 seconds to install and have purified water straight from the tap. Amazing, right?

Here in Alexandria, VA the tap water tastes AWFUL. In fact I call it poison and exclusively drink bottled water (even for brushing my teeth). It’s metallic, and just altogether ick. PUR’s system totally remedied the water. I’m not altogether sure it’s not going to still kill me, but the upside is that it no longer tastes like it is. Totally worth buying.

Be sure to check out my Instagram video of the filter in action.

St. Patrick’s Day 2014

It’s been a while, to say the least. And what better day to come back to the throes of blogging than St. Patrick’s Day? I of course have no better answer, so let’s stick to the idea that the Irish inspired me — in the very least they inspired a preppy pink and green outfit that got me playing around on polyvore, which indirectly led me back here, so it all kind of works, no?

Quite a lot has gone on since I last blogged, but venturing into that space feels daunting at the moment, so let’s just keep this as an, “I’m officially back” post (which is true aside from St. Patrick’s Day as I recently migrated this blog to wordpress and am in the midst of a major blog makeover right now).

Catch you on the flip side.
xxoo.

[REVIEW] Influenster VoxBox – Tastykake® Kandy Bar Kakes: S’mores

“Influenster is a place for culture junkies to come together and share their unique opinions of products and experiences.

The first item I’ve decided to check out in my spring VoxBox is the Kandy Bar Kake from Tastykake (http://www.tastykake.com). What Influenster has to say about TastyKakes:

S’Mores: made with real Hershey’s™ cocoa
and topped with graham cracker crumbles
(photo via tastykakes.com)
Kandy Bar Kakes are the best of both worlds. Light and fluffy chocolate-enrobed cakes come in a unique kandy bar shape with a delicious créme filling made with your favorite candy flavors. Available in S’mores, Peppermint, and Peanut Butter flavor. Available at grocery and convenience stores across America.
Single Serve – $1.69, Family Pack – $4.49
I tried the S’mores kake, which uses real Hershey’s™ cocoa and it was pretty good. It was however a soft snack, which means you dont’ get the satisfying crunch that an actual graham crack has to offer. The only disappointing fact is that it’s a 260 calorie and 11 grams of fat snack. Not exactly something you’d eat everyday, or even every week for that matter. But it was tasty, so I give it a B-. It was good, but I’d definitely eat other things before choosing this.

Six hours, one Friday

Six hours, one Friday. Mundane to the casual observer. A shepherd with his sheep, a housewife with her thoughts, a doctor with his patients. But to a handful of awestruck witnesses, the most maddening of miracles is occurring. God is on a cross. The creator of the universe is being executed.

It is no normal six hours. It is no normal Friday. Far worse than the breaking of his body is the shredding of his heart. And now his own father is beginning to turn his back on him, leaving him alone. What do you do with that day in history? What do you do with its claims? They were the most critical hours in history.

Nails didn’t hold God to a cross. Love did. The sinless One took on the face of a sinner so that we sinners could take on the face of a saint!

“For He made Him who knew no sin to be sin for us, that we might become the righteousness of God in Him.” (2 Corinthians 5:21).
