Instagram; I LOVE Instagr.am


Instagram is a hip Apple app that creates retro photo delight.

Instagr.am is the main reason that I love my iPad2 so much; perhaps its the only reason I bought any Apple products. 

I became intrigued with Instagr.am when I began to see so many cool retro pics in and around the internet. I search and research filters, Photoshop, Pixlr and none compared to the shots found with Instagram. It then became my mission to be apart of the cool kids pics. Santa thrust an iPad2 upon me as a holiday/birthday gift. I was overjoyed.

Here are a few of my 1000 or so Instagr.am shots;











If you follow me on Instagram, you've seen these; if not, follow me @Regipee.

Do you love Instagram as much as I do? 

Of course you do!!!

Thanks but No Thanks said the......


Makeup Geek.

About a month or so ago, I responded to an ad for a freelance copywriter position with YouTube sensation turned make-up guru MakeUp Geek. I made it through all of the segments of the process but I received the infamous "Thanks but no thanks" letter.

My first reaction was to feel some kind of way, but the end of the email had a prize! A prize for not winning; really; shut your mouth. Yes the prize for making it through all the rounds but not being selected was to pick 6 shadows from the Makeup Geek collection.

I selected;

  • Wisteria   
  • Mango Tango
  • Preppy
  • Mocha
  • Pretentious
  • Latte



How would you style these colors? Have you ever used Makeup Geek's products?

I love a neutral face, but I couldn't resist some one of the bold colors; Mango Tango.

Thanks but no thanks turned out to be a win for me.

I stay WINNING!

K-Mart + Fashion = K-Mart Fashion


A month or so ago, I won a $100 gift card from the fabulous Baby Shopaholic. As usual, it came right on time and the shopping began. I know you're thinking, didn't you just win something; ANSWER: Yes, I stay winning! 

OK, back to the post. I've been in and out of K-Mart as of late because that's where I buy the water filters for my refrigerator. Typically, I head in, go straight to the appliance section, then I'm out. Well, things weren't going to be any different with this gift card, I planned to get another water filter and a few more items. However, after seeing how fly Baby Shopaholic was HERE and Tami was HERE, I decided to cruise through the Kmart Fashion section.

Besides the trusty water filter, this is what I bought:







The shoes are extremely comfortable and sexy. If you follow me on Instagram, you've seen them; all others, tell me what you think.

Spring Fling with a Colored Jean


Unless you've lived under a fashion rock for the past few seasons, you are in the KNOW about the love affair with colored bottoms. I am on the fashionista train that craves a rump of yellow, red, green or purple. I now own a pair of green, orange, and cobalt bottoms; though I've had the green ones for a few years. I hope to find a pair of floral with a white background. I had a pair in HS and they were the cutest EVER.

Are you hip to colored bottoms? Will you fancy a pair for spring and summer?

Longhorn Steakhouse (Review)


A few weeks ago, I entered and WON a Longhorn Steakhouse give-a-way hosted by The Cubicle Chick. Though there was no requirement to link back, I always like to show my appreciation with a post.

I've been pretty busy lately with work, more work, and a few outside projects, so it took me a week or so to use the gift card. I finally had to chance to take a break in between projects to snag a bit of lunch.



Lunch time on a Saturday in and around Atlanta can be pretty busy; therefore I opted for a Longhorn Steakhouse in Douglasville. Douglasville a small city right outside of Southwest Atlanta. As I figured, the crowd was pretty small therefore I received good service and fast.


It was my greatest intention to order the Grilled White Cheddar Stuffed Mushrooms and a salad but the salad turned into the Black & Blew Burger with rice pilaf instead.



As you'll notice, the "dressings" are on the side because hot vegetables really aren't my thing. It was my first time getting the Black & Bleu burger; I'll give it an 8 out of 10. I think I would have enjoyed it better if the Bleu Cheese crumbles weren't melted. The rice pilaf was ok. It didn't seem fresh, more like leftovers from the night before. The rice pilaf was also a bit too salty. As always, I loved the stuffed mushrooms; they are a serving of food on their own. 


I am a fan of Longhorn Steakhouse anyway, so I will be back.

PS. For dessert, I had a bit of bread 'n butter.

Don't forget to check out The Cubicle Chick and Longhorn Steakhouse.

Gillette Venus: Venus and Olay Razor (Review)


A few weeks ago, I received my Influenster LoveVoxBox which contained the Gillette Venus and Olay Razor. Of course I was pretty excited about this product because it's Spring and time for a bit of "defurring" and lady maintenance.

Perhaps I should have read more about this brand before I rolled into the shower like "what's what".

Pros:

It has a two moisture bars anchoring the blades.
It can be mounted in the shower.

Cons:

The moisture blades are slightly weird. One has a slimey consistency and one is dry soap-ish.
The moisture blades do not allow for a smooth shave.
The position of the moisture blades prevent the "tap, clean, rinse"  action.

More than likely I won't buy this product. This razor is for someone with little to no hair in whatever region. It is also NOT suggested for anyone with coarse hair.

***I received these products to review through Influenster. Product opinions are unique to the user.

Influenster - Love VoxBox



Influenster is a trendsetting community.

The Influenster community is a dynamic group who greatly influences brand trends by sharing personal experiences on products and services. Each "Influenster" then opens social media conversations by giving insightful feedback and reporting on extraordinary finds. 

I recently received the Influenter Love VoxBox.

  GILLETTE VENUS RAZOR

Reviews coming soon, however, I know I will use the Gillette Venus & Olay Razor right away. There's a serious need to "defur" my legs. Also, I currently use Splenda but many online communities suggest Truvia instead. I definitely need to make a comparison because I only use artificial sweetners. 

Very soon I will compare the Kiss Nail Dress to the JamBerry Nails. My good pal is an independent consultant and I want to put her product to the test.

Stay tuned.

Are you an Influenster? Have you tried any of these products?
