Dry and store your cosmetic brushes easily- with Benjabelle!

 Introducing the Benjabelle tree, your heaven sent answer to brush drying. Finally, a couple of genius self starters created a contraption so simple yet so incredibly convenient to store our makeup brushes. Gone are the times of fumbling with brushes to dry them at just the right angle. The time where they take forever to dry and or don't dry completely at all. No more wasting paper towels or using convoluted schemes to dry them. Rubber bands with clothing pins on clothing hangers anyone?  Yeah, i've been there! You can say good bye to all of that. The tacky times are behind us with the Benjabelle by our side.

My new breakfast routine- with Better Oats.

Are you looking for a tastier healthier alternative to your normal breakfast routine? How familiar are you with oatmeal? It is not the gross bland stuff it used to be. Personally, I love regular oatmeal with a hint of honey and natural fruit, but I also love when I find flavors already jam packed into neat convenient packages for on the go. 

Get Healthy with Cheribundi. Plus Giveaway!

I have discovered an amazing new drink for the summer. Even though fall has come upon us, it's going to be be summer where I am for a little longer than the north. Florida has started to simmer down, but not quite enough to call it fall. So refreshingly cold drinks are still popular on the menu!

One of which I concocted today with the help of an incredibly yummy beverage called Cheribundi. It is made of my favorite fruit on earth, cherries. Not only that, but some of the juices include teas. Two of my favorite things in life. Cheribundi is such a refreshing and unique drink and you are going to love what I have to say about them. Especially the benefits and a nice little simple recipe.

Cheribundi is a wonderful marriage of different tastes that dance on your tongue with cherries. I have tried several different flavors of theirs and they are ALL very tasty, but the ones with tea flavors have to be my ultimate favorite.

Does your child Love My Little Pony? This is a must see! Plus, Giveaway!

I might be an adult, but I still love stuffed animals. How can you not love the cute little creatures.  I think of my pets as stuffed animals come to life, only well they don't scratch the life out of you by accident. We like to cuddle the furry creatures. I store mine  in safe spots so they will last into the wee years of when I may pass them down.  It is also a lot of fun buying them as gifts for friends and their little ones. I don't think one ever grows out of toys or stuffed animals. We just label them adult words like "collectors items" ;)

I was overjoyed to review for Build a Bear, a company that enables you to build your own bear from scratch. Online or in store in their bear workshop. Its the perfect place to get high quality stuffed animals in a HUGE variety of characters adorned in unique customized outfits. You really have to see this place in person to gather how much of a treat it is. It's a great place to take your kids for their birthday. Kids always have a fun time there!

Teespring review- Make or raise money from your art.

Want an easy way to make money with your personal art? Have you been saving designs and never really did anything with them? Do you have a band that you want to get noticed? Then Teespring is for you. Put your own unique design on a Tee shirt and receive a high quality customized print. Then, sit back and see what bites you get from your audience. You can conveniently sell through Facebook, Twitter and other social media sites to get the most exposure of your creativity.

I picked a random image to screen cap an example of how you start your t-shirt, show the cost and information that is needed. You can use your own high quality images or theirs and prices depend on the type of t-shirt you want. It's simple and fun!

IPSY Unboxing September 2013

 Hello ipsters. I am beyond excited to share my September un-bagging with you. If you aren't familiar, please go to my past review to learn more. Despite the horribly long wait, due to DHL being well, horrible as a carrier...I am thoroughly impressed with this bag. It was definitely worth the wait, but I really hope Ipsy decides to go with a new carrier. It should not take 11 days to get from NC to FL! For some reason, it liked to camp out in Orlando for 7 days. I know this happens to a lot of people. I feel your pain.

On to the goodies!

This post is brought to you by Makeoverly. This is 100% my opinion.  
How many of you are sick of going to the cosmetics counter only to have your face scrutinized. Then told you need such and such products. Ultimately, to be pressured into buying makeup or face product you probably don't need?

 Yes, they can't help but do their job, but you can help how you get service. Makeup sales women can be very helpful, but also very pushy. You want a professional take from someone who knows what they are talking about, but where else can you go besides a pricey cosmetologist or salon?

Moving to a new residence? You'll want to look at these top 5 tips!

What are the things that you can do to make your transition to a new home easier? I know we all could use this kind of advice I am about to bestow upon you, because I don't know anyone who hasn't had at least one annoying problem moving. This could have been prevented by being more prepared. 

Here are some important tips to keep in mind when arranging for a long distance move. 
  • Now is the time to get rid of everything that you don't need. Dedicate one day or weekend prior to your move, to chuck and donate all the things you no longer have a use for !  My favorite is the pick up for veterans. They conveniently come to your house any time of day and even provide you with a huge bag to put everything in. This is a great time to de-clutter and help those in need!
  • So that you don't wait long, have your mail forwarded a few days before you leave so it's there waiting for you when you move in. 

  • Make sure to transfer all your utilities accounts to the new humble abode at least 1 day prior and cancel everything at the old place for one day after the move. You definitely want air condition in the new place when you are moving. Especially in the summer! 
  • Give everyone your new address a few days in advance so they can prepare a time when they can see you! Some people do it so spur of the moment, they leave their friends helpless to visit for a while. 
  • Make sure the pick up, mini van or rental truck is big enough to carry everything and you are able to get everything done in your allotted time frame to avoid extended rental fees.

I'll give you an example of a past moving flub of mine. When I was moving out on my own in college, I didn't realize how much I actually had to move and when it came time to moving day, the truck I rented wasn't big enough! I had to get my friend who had a friend with a pickup truck who I was fortunate to have by my side. He helped the movers carry the rest of the items into the pick up and all was well. 

Moral of this story? Had I called a place like 1800 pack rat and got a portable storage unit delivered to my place of residence, I wouldn't have needed to pay extra to the movers, because we went over the allotted time getting everything to move the rest of my things. 

It would have saved time and lots of effort if  I just had everything packed up and delivered in one neat lil package, like a pizza.  

Good Luck on your move!

FREE Viva La Juicy perfume Sample

Get your FREE Viva La Juicy Sample here! I have been dying to see what this fragrance is like. I've heard a lot about the line.

EM Cosmetics, By Michelle Phan. The best reviews out there.

Picture by She-finds

So everyone is boasting and excited for the new EM cosmetics magnetic palettes, By Michelle Phan. I have been doing a lot of research on things and getting the opinions of many beauty gurus. I've decided to make it easy for you and compiled a list of the best videos with the most useful feedback.

The general consensus seems to be that it's hit or miss, depending what you purchase. Most of the shadows are well pigmented and beautiful colors, but several other items have been lackluster and generally the whole collection seems to be overpriced for what it delivers. You can make your own decision once you've seen the proof yourself.

Personally, I would not spend the money on the full size line, but I may try out the travel palette. Right now Ipsy is offering us 4 small sample items from the travel palette for $10 plus shipping so you can try 3 eye shadows and one lip color out, but it will come in a palette 1/3 full.  You'll have to buy the rest later to fill it.

I really hope that Ipsy add some of the EM line to our ipsy bags when they get the chance. I would love to see first hand what the palettes are like.   Very honest video review with several EM products tested to see how long it holds up the whole day. Very detailed opinion.  Very honest and detailed video review on two different full size life palettes, day and night swatches of a lot of eyeshadows, blushes and lip colors. If you want great swatches both on the fingers and face, this is what you need to watch. If you want swatch eye candy in picture form of both the day and night palettes, this is the best I have found. She also goes into a lot of detail about everything.   She gives a bunch of quick lipstick swatches. There's a lot of them and they're very clear. She raves about how pigmented they are.

That's about it and I will add more as I find what I think are the best and most worth your time! 

If you happen to leave comments, please let them know that Beautiful Incentives sent you! Thank you :)

10 things to keep in mind when choosing an E-reader case.

pic by sunday times uk
One of my favorite and cherished prize possessions is my kindle. It does everything one could really hope for it to do. I read books on it and constantly check my e-mail,  update my blog and social media, research and watch videos. When I use my hope diamond of an electronic, I need to make sure that when buying a case, it is the best choice for me.

Here are some of the most important aspects to keep in mind when searching for the perfect E-reader case to protect your 'precious'. 
  1. Always buy a screen cover to prevent scratches and stains no matter what case you buy. The case is added protection. 
  2. Make sure that the case has a very soft interior, yet is very thick and durable to protect the screen from cracking, scratches and stains. 
  3. Make sure the material isn't cheap. You don't want it rubbing off on the screen or scratching it.
  4. Make sure that the kindle is safely enclosed by the case, whether it's stretch bands, an inner casing, snaps, velcro. Whatever it is make sure that it won't give in on you. 
  5. Pick a design you really love to reduce the risk of  needing to spend more money on another one. There are so many awesome designs out there.  
  6. Consider where you will be using your kindle. If you tote it around a lot, you may want to get a case with an extra closure for more security. Maybe you are more active and need a case that zippers completely up or you are taking it to the beach where it could get wet. Consider a waterproof case.  If you just use it leisurely, then your basic holder is fine. 
  7. Sizing: Be sure that your device fits the e-reader case. 
  8. Consider whether you will need some extra space inside to carry a pen, paper etc. Plenty of cases come with little compartments for those things. 
  9. Research everywhere for the best price. Often times when you find something, you'll find it cheaper somewhere else. 
  10. Don't settle for less, but do get a bang for your buck. It will be with you for a while. 
I am a leisurely user and wanted something unique and pretty to look at, but still easy to carry around. The case I chose is the Script e-reader case by Ecco Ltd. This one covered all my basic needs and it's perfect for me.

I wanted to preserve the look and feel of a book when I read on my kindle. This has inspirational words in a pretty script on the front and back. I love how easy and convenient it is to read on a kindle, but I also love the tangibility of holding a book. This almost looks as if it is a diary, novel or personal journal, but then low and behold you open it up and the kindle is inside. I love the creative approach to this design. With this cover I get the best of both worlds.

This is made specifically in a size 5.5X8 to fit your standard e-readers, so it fits my kindle fire perfectly.

The feel of the cover is very soft. It's well made with a durable faux leather, protecting my kindle fire.  The soft lining is easy on the screen and it's held by durable bands on each corner of the kindle. It also includes a pocket inside, which is great for random paper holding.

I am so picky about covers and won't stop looking until I find the perfect one. This was it. All I do is tote my kindle to and from a few places a week and use it at night before bed, so I see it lasting quite a long while.

If you like the one I reviewed today, you can find it and others at these stores:

Barnes and Nobles
And many others.
