February Ipsy Bag Review

 feb glamA few weeks ago we did a blog on Ipsy and had a great response, so I wanted to share with you what was in my February Bag. For those who missed it and who don’t know what Ipsy is, it’s a $10 a month beauty subscription. Tipsy sends you 5 beauty products in a themed makeup bag. Ipsy gives each customer a survey when signing up, which allows Ipsy to better understand your individual preferences, style, and facial features. If you ever feel as though you are getting products you don’t enjoy, you can change your preferences at any time. Ipsy also provides you with discounts to the brands they include, as well as the option to rate/review products for points that you can redeem for additional products. Continue reading

Great Wolf Lodge Adventure

GWL HotelSo what do you do a week after your house gets broken into you ask? Well the Zock’s decided to head to Virginia and go to Great Wolf Lodge. We have had a hard week trying to feel safe again in our home…so we thought maybe getting the kids out of the house would help us all breathe a little easier for few days.

We woke up Wednesday Morning and decided to leave North Carolina in our rear view for a few days. Our stress level has been high and no one has been sleeping well so we decided a little fun was in order. So after super speed packing….. we were on our way to Williamsburg Virginia. The kids have begged for years to come to Great Wolf Lodge, but it always seemed a bit out of our price range to rationalize. Well we had no idea about the deep discounts that they had if you just do a little bit of research (Thanks Tiffany). So here is a little about our adventure, the resort, and the discounts they offer.

@pebbyforevee

 
Peb 2Pebby Forevee is derived from simply being a woman who had nothing to wear. (aka ME!) I have curves, and I like them! But apparently clothing designers do not. I got so sick of being uncomfortable in
clothing especially in the summer time because let’s face it -you are less-dressed in the summer. I felt like a sausage stuffed into a synthetic casing. I taught myself how to screen print & with my love of graphic art I started to sell on Etsy where my business took off so fast I could barely keep up with it.
