Win $10,000 on Monday playing Swag IQ! (US & Canada Only)


On Monday, February 26th, Swagbucks is putting up over $10,000 that you can win playing fun trivia games! SwagIQ (available for iPhone and. Android) is a live, multiplayer trivia game show you play from your phone!

Each weekday, Swag IQ broadcasts a live game. Simply tune-in at the appointed time by launching the SwagIQ app and log-in with your Swagbucks account credentials. If you don't have a Swagbucks account, you can sign up for one here and then download the app!

In celebration of Swagbucks's 10th Birthday, they're going to broadcast 4 shows throughout the day and give away at least $10,000! It will likely be more since the more people who sign-up via SwagIQ prior to each game, the bigger the grand prize! 

1st Game Show: 1:00 PM Eastern Time/10:00 AM Pacific Time. Grand Prize: at least $1500. 
2nd Game Show: 4:00 PM Eastern Time/1:00 PM Pacific Time. Grand Prize: at least $2000.

To play SwagIQ, download the app to your iPhone and Android today.



It's really easy to play, too:
The game show host will ask a series of multiple-choice trivia questions. You’ll have 10 seconds to answer each one. Get it right; you get SB and move on. Answer them all correctly and you can win a grand prize! If more than one player wins, the winners split the grand prize.  

Get it wrong; still play along. Some questions have a bonus SB award attached to them. If you answer those questions correctly, you get those SB, even if you’re out of the running for the big money. And, if you’re in a groove but miss a question, you’ll have the option to rejoin a game by redeeming a few SB.  When you get to the end of the game, you can claim all of the SB that you've earned.

You can use all the SB points you earn playing SwagIQ to get PayPal cash or gift cards to places like Amazon, Target, Starbucks, and more!

#Boxycharm February #Boxyrock


 
I discovered Boxycharm from a friend that ditched Ipsy for Boxycharm. The price point is a little higher ($21/month versus $10/month). However, with Boxycharm you receive ALL FULL SIZED PRODUCTS. That is right, you receive 4 to 5 full sized products that total over $100 in value! Honestly, they have been closer to the $150 range in my boxes.
 
I have received four boxes so far and they have all contained a palette as well (blush, eyeshadow, and highlighter). Not every box will contain a palette, but most do.


SUBSCRIBE to BOXYCHARM.

Here is what I received for February:





Naked Cosemetics Holographic Highlighter Palette (MSRP: $39.99) 




Swatches of the highlighter, as you can see the colors are very light


-Cover FX Shimmer Veil (liquid cream eyeshadow) (MSRP: $28) 





-Vintage Cosmetics Smokey Eye Pencil (MSRP: $21)




Sugar and Lemon Moisturizing Lip Buffer (MSRP: $24.00) 




-Crown Pro Trio Brush Set (MSRP: $29.99) 




TOTAL MSRP VALUE: $142.98

$142 worth of makeup for $21! The highlighter palette isn't something I would normally buy, but I am really loving playing around with it. The colors are faint and blend well. I have used it on my cupids bow, cheeks and eyes. The CoverFX shimmery liquid eyeshadow is my favorite from this box. While I am not normally a fan of pink eyeshadow, this one has so much purple, silver and glitter in it that it is gorgeous when applied to my eyes. I love the way it goes on quickly and easily without creasing. I have plans to buy other colors. The Crown Pro brushes are really great quality and will definitely be used. 

I adore lip scrubs (especially at this time of year!), but I hate the price tag on them. So, I was really excited to receive this Sugar and Lemon buffer. Lemon is even my preferred flavor. The only thing I don't love is the eyeliner pencil. It is a little too clunky for me. I prefer my eyeliner to be liquid and precise. With that being said, it does get into the little nooks around your eyelashes well. I think I may apply it there, wipe of the excess and apply my liquid to the eye itself next time I use it.

I am really happy I discovered Boxycharm. It is certainly worth the money every month. Even if I dislike one or two products, I am still getting my money's worth. Last month I received a full size Dr. Brandt Illuminating Primer that is now my favorite. I also believe it costs more than my entire box last month. 

Do you have Boxycharm? What other subscription boxes do you have? I still have Ipsy and Sephora Play as well, but I am trying to decide which one to cancel. What are your thoughts?

8 Reasons You Will Want to Visit #Scream-A-Geddon2017 ASAP



I was lucky enough to partner up with SCREAM-A-GEDDON again this year. They provided me with the opportunity to go for free with some friends and to giveaway some tickets (if you are just now reading this, you missed the giveaway. Check back next year and hopefully I will have another one.). Honestly, I would have paid for tickets to go anyhow. This is the third year that S-A-G has been open and my third year (and fourth time) going. It gets better and better every year. I cannot recommend it enough. Here are 8 reasons why YOU will want to visit SCREAM-A-GEDDON ASAP.

1. "I can't wait to come back next week!", "This was so scary, but so fun!", "Thank you so much for introducing me to SCREAM-A-GEDDON!", "I have to tell my family/friends/everyone I know about this, they will love it.", "It is totally worth the drive!":

These are quotes from my two friends that I took to S-A-G last night. It was their first time and we had so much fun! They both loved it. One of them is even returning next week and taking her family and neighbors.

2. SCREAM-A-GEDDON is literally located in a dark field / woods in the middle of nowhere.

It is so beautiful and tranquil, but also really dark and creepy. You won't have lights from rides, streetlamps or buildings illuminating all the people waiting to scare you at this attraction. One of my friends mentioned that she loved it because it felt like we were in the country on a farm.

3. Interactive Houses! 

What is an interactive house? It is a house where you can wear a glow necklace. If you wear the glow necklace it gives them permission to touch you, pull you away from your group and even lock you up for a minute or two. There are two interactive houses. I ALWAYS have a lot of interaction in Blackpool Prison. It is the reason why it is one of my 2 favorite houses. Infected is also interactive, but I have only been pulled away from my group once out of three times of wearing the necklace in Infected. If you are afraid to wear the necklace, start with Infected. Don't let this sign scare you!:


4. They have an amazing haunted hay ride.

I admit that I was not a fan of the Cursed Hayride the first year. I didn't find it scary and had a few bored moments on the ride then. I tried it again last night and it was amazing! They actually stop the hayride in several scare zones. Everyone on the ride was screaming, laughing and jumping. It was a lot of fun. They also have some pretty amazing sets to look at. If you look closely, you can see some of the course from Treehoppers while you are riding around.

5. Dead Woods.

Dead Woods is my other favorite attraction. For me, it is by far the scariest and most enjoyable attraction I have ever been in. You literally walk on a small scarcely lit path deep into the woods with a small group and one glow stick. They wait a few minutes between groups so that your group should remain alone (people sometimes ruin this by stopping or running). The glow stick is so that the people in the woods can see you coming. However, you won't always see THEM. This is the attraction that sometimes makes me leave my group and run out of the woods. Opps.

Pro Tip: head to Dead Woods first because the line gets long.

6. They only allow a few people to go through an attraction at a time.

The thing that I hate the most about some other haunted houses and them park attractions is that they do not allow enough time between letting groups of people go into a house. Haunted attractions are best done in small groups so that you aren't watching the group in front of you get scared. Like many others, I am only scared if I don't see them coming.


7. Bedlam 3-D is a very creative artistic house.

Bedlam is the "circus" "clown" house. However, it is so much more than that. You wear 3-D glasses and from the 3-D neon skulls that pop out at you to the firing neurons that are painted on the wall, it is a work of art. My friend actually stopped in the middle of the maze to admire a large brain hanging from the ceiling and was scared by an actor lying in wait. There is a lot to see and appreciate in this exquisite house.



8. The houses are always changing / improving from year to year.

I have been to S-A-G four times over three years. I have been to S-A-G twice this year two weeks apart. Each experience has been drastically different. While the attractions have the same names as last year, they have changed a lot. I already talked about how the hayride has changed. What I didn't mention was that Bedlam 3-D used to be really cool just because of the esthetics. Now, I find it scary too. They have improved this house SO much. Other attractions (especially theme parks) literally have the same houses every year. The SCREAM-A-GEDDON owners and manager literally travel the country to haunted houses looking for new amazing ideas and bring them back to incorporate into the houses to make them better. The names may remain the same, but the attractions change year to year.


It is really dark on the grounds and pictures do not do SCREAM-A-GEDDON justice, but here are a few more pictures from my two visits this year:












What are you waiting for? Do not wait until next year. Experience the fright of your life today! SCREAM-A-GEDDON is located just north of Tampa in Dade City. It runs every night through Halloween and November 3rd and 4th. Pro Tip: Buy your tickets online as early as possible. They are cheaper online and prices are subject to increase closer to the date. 

Make sure you follow SCREAM-A-GEDDON on Social Media. Hint: they have giveaways too!
