Join #ThePussyCatRiot Movement!

Hey everyone! As you all know or if you are new to my blog that I am a Cat Lady! I have a LONGGGGG history of cats! Haha! Now, I have one cat named Fluffy Boy! Although, that is not the point of this post! Haha Let's go ahead and get started!

Fluffy Boy
 So I saw an opportunity on a website as a cat owner to do something for cats in general and citizens in other countries! It is to help lift internet censorship! Many countries nowadays have strict policy of being on internet that restricts millions of people of knowledge and wait for it.... Cats!! I know what you're thinking.... Cats?? Really? Haha. Yes, People are not even allowed to go on Facebook, Youtube, and more because there are hundreds of thousands of cats all around the internet. Plus, these tough controls of governments around the countries are not joking. Which make this movement even more important! Therefore, I ask you and your cat(s) to join the movement and help populate the internet with images and videos of cats whether they're yours, a friend's, or even a neighbor's cat, symbolising the stand against cyber censorship and those who help it. Further Ado, you see five cats down below?
 These five cats in fact, are the world's most famous and the current cats of the Internet. 
They're all so cute, right?!
There are many ways you can help get the word out. 
  • Make memes of these cute, furry friends from Instagram, Twitter, Youtube, and Facebook! 
  • Draw a legit picture of all cats fighting against these feline haters. 
  • Make an awesome video on Youtube, Vimeo, Instavideo, or anywhere else of you and your cat(s) opposing the censorship!
  • Make yummy treats for cat(s) and show it around your social networks to let others know you're in the movement! 
As you do your great support to the campaign, don't forget to hashtag #ThePussyCatRiot! 
So yes, now you know a bit of this great movement and if you want to help to give this awareness a little more shoutout then go ahead follow them on social network!

Caliente VoxBox Full Review!

Hey y'all! How have y'all been these past 2 weeks?! I'm so sorry for not posting new things on here! My laptop had not been cooperating with me for the past few months and it's officially done!! It's not functioning well but that's okay! I'll get myself a new laptop once I have enough funds! So until then, you'll be seeing less posts on here! Please forgive me for that! Alright, back to the topic here! I am finally getting to the bottoms of my products in my Caliente VoxBox! Here are my thoughts and full review on these products! Enjoy!

Hawaiian Tropic Sheer Touch Lotion Sunscreen 

Description of the product: "Hawaiian Tropic Sheer Touch Ultra Radiance lotion sunscreen protects, softens, and leaves skin glowing. Its ultra-conditioning formula leaves skin soft and luminous, and contains Shea butter complex and mango fruit extract." 
Facts of the product:

  • It cost $9.99.
  • Available in stores.
  • Broad spectrum UVA/UVB protection of SPF 30 
  •  Non-greasy and oil-free.
  • Water resistant for 80 minutes (1hour & 20 minutes).
  • Contains Vitamins C & E.
  •  Contains tropical fragrance.
  • It is dermatologist-tested. 

My thoughts: I really love the smell of this lotion! I can smell the mango fruit extract when I apply this all over my face and neck. It's not strong but it lingers throughout the day. Yum! It does leave my skin soft and it doesn't feel greasy or heavy at all! Although there is a difference between glowing and looking greasy in the face! Haha! I don't mind. I always use my Stay Matte Primer from Rimmel London to mattify any shine spots I have on my face. I also love that it protects my skin as I chill in the sun at the lake, backyards of my families' homes, and walking down the trails at a park. It feel so good to let my skin breathe once in awhile especially in this Summer! 
Tip: If you are going out and want to wear makeup, then I highly recommend put your Hawaiian Tropic lotion sunscreen in a fridge for a couple minutes so that when you apply it onto your face or body, the drying time will be cut in half. Not only that, it'll feel so good as it cools your face down when you get ready to do your makeup! Hope that helps!

Kiss Gel Fantasy Nails 

Description of the product: "Kiss gel Fantasy ready-to-wear gel nails deliver layers of amazing shine in brilliant design. With two ways to wear, you can glue on or stick on with enclosed mega-adhesive tabs. Sparkling glitter with an ultra-smooth finish, a fabulous manicure that can be done at home in minutes - and doesn't cost a fortune!" 
Facts of the product:

  • It cost $7.99.
  • Available at Kmart, Rite-Aid, Walgreens, & Walmart.
  • Many pretty designs to choose from! 

My thoughts: I loved the design of the nails I received in my voxbox. It was very pretty. It had glitter all over the tips and the color was perfect for the summer. Pink have never looked so good on my nails! I also love the fact it was not your ordinary nails you see in a manicure, it was cat-inspired talons nails! The tips were long and almond-shaped. My cats loved it, obviously for one reason; scratching! Haha! There were two ways to apply this onto my nails: the glue and stick-on tabs. I chose the glue just to see how long it can last. Well, it lasted for about a week top. I am a full-time babysitter so washing my hands is always in my everyday routine. So yes.. Haha I loved it though! I never felt so good since my real nails looked so bleh and I don't have time to paint my nails. So having the gel Fantasy nails were so neat and fun! 
Tip: If you are a beginner to artificial nails and want to use glue to apply it onto your nails, I suggest to ask another person to do it for you! The time of holding the gel Fantasy nails onto your nails is consuming! As well as it gets hard to apply others when you have one hand done. Also, don't forget to apply Vaseline around your cuticles to ensure the glue does not stick your cuticles to your nails!

 Rice Krispies Treats Blasted S'mores 

Description of the product: "Introducing new Rice Krispies Treats Blasted S'mores - A beloved family favorite Blasted with crunchy graham flavored bites and chunks of chocolatey goodness. Introduce a whole new level of fun to your snack time!" 
Facts of the product:

  • It cost $2.99.
  • Available in stores!
  • No high fructose corn syrup. 

My thoughts: Oh my god. My nephews and I loved these treats. They were so chewy and delicious! I could still taste the chocolate chips, the crispy marshmallows, and the graham flavored rice krispie. Haha. It really satisfied my sweet tooth hunger after we finished eating it. Haha! I was really happy to see the treat in the voxbox too because who doesn't like getting free food to try it?! Am I right? Haha. 
Rate: 10/10 

 Dove Pure Care Dry Oil Nourishing Treatment 

Description of the product: "Get 5X silkier hair, without weighing it down, with the new Dove Pure Care Dry Oil Nourishing Treatment, which contains a blend of oils, including African Macadamia oil." 
Facts of the product:

  • It cost $12.99.
  • Available in stores!
  • Light-weight oil.
  • Great for all hair types! 

My thoughts: I was so excited to see this in my voxbox because I LOVE hair oils! I have my own share of hair oils since high school! Haha. So I can say this, this hair oil have definitely gave my hair the much needed care! It gives my hair a really nice shine as well as the smell is good too! It leaves my hair smooth and soft. I really love that it is easy to run my fingers through my hair without no tangles! It doesn't feel greasy at all. The flyaways isn't that bad as others do which is good because I hate hair sprays! It messes up the softness of my hair. Bleh! Also, I love the fact that this little sample of Dove Pure Care dry oil is still good even over a month now. LOVE! 
Up above in the picture. I have the Dove Pure Care dry oil in my hair! Look at that shine!
P.S. Sorry for the bad lighting!!

Paula's Choice Skin Perfecting 2% BHA liquid 

Description of the product: "Paula's Choice Skin Perfecting 2% BHA liquid is a leave-on exfoliant that penerates deep into pores to minimize pore size and create radiant and even-toned skin. You'll love what you see in the mirror when you wake up to glowing skin." 
Facts of the product:

  • It cost $23.
  • Available at
  • For all skin types.
  • Contains Salicylic acid.
  • Clinically proven non-irritating.
  • 100% fragrance free.
  • No added dyes.
  • No animal testing.
  • Made in USA. 

My thoughts: When I first saw this product, I was excited. Then I realize this was an exfoliant that did not do rinsing afterwards. So I was a little confused at first, I must admit. Only because I was used to rinsing after I exfoliate my face since that was a traditional way for me and the other products I used before. So before I did anything with this product, I researched on how to use this product properly. Well, I have read so many mistakes of other customers who had rinsed after using this product and complained about on how this product really works. I also saw many people who discontinued to use this product due to their skin reactions such as irritations and break outs. Which I found it weird because in a description of this product says it is clinically proven non-irritating?! Whaat.... Right.. Haha. Anyway, the way I use this is: 
1.) Wash my face throughly with a face scrub. 
2.) Clean up with my toner. 
3.) Apply the exfoliant and let it dry. 
4.) Apply sunscreen as advised on the product's description. 
There were a couple things I noticed when I was applied a few drops of the product onto my face. One is it burns a little as I pat it around my nose area. It didn't bother me since I'm used to having burns such as curling iron burn, razor burn, etc. So I assumed it was a skin-lightning ingredient working since the product did say it'll create radiant and even-toned skin. Haha. Two is as I finished applying the drops onto my face, it felt a little greasy when I started to let it dry. I didn't know how to make that feeling go away since it was my first time using this product. Haha Anyway, after the drying process, I then moisturize my face and went to bed. The next morning, I had a breakout on my chin, forehead, and my cheeks. It was not too bad but I knew it was coming because I can not ignore that greasy feeling. Eventually, it went away as I got used to using this product into my everyday routine. Finally, within two weeks, I finally started to see results. My pores started to look smaller and my skin looked a little lighter tone. Which is nice because my chin and forehead were a little darker than the rest of my face. Haha! Til to this day, everything is still going good! 
I'm lovin' it!

Tip: Do not rinse after you apply a few drops of the product onto your face!! It will irritate your skin. Be sure to let your skin dry to ensure it won't be disrupted of it's purposes.
