What’s in the Box?

I was super excited to have been selected to receive the Gents VoxBox from influenster. When my box arrived I couldn’t wait to rip it open and see what was inside.

Included in my box was Barbasol® Sensitive Skin Thick & Rich Shaving Cream, Barbasol® Ultra 6 Plus Razor, Bed Head for Men by TIGI Matte Separation™ Workable Wax, Frank’s RedHot® Original Cayenne Pepper Sauce, and KETTLE BRAND® Potato Chips Chile Verde.  

Barbasol Shaving Cream & Razor 

I received the Barbasol’s Thick & Rich Shaving Cream, it has a good fragrance and left my skin silky smooth. Top it off with the Barbasol Ultra 6 Plus Razor, an ultra-thin, open flow blades allow for easy cleaning. A great razor that gives you a smooth shave, it gets the job done fast and perfect every time would definitely recommend it.

Bed Head for Men by TIGI Matte Separation™ Workable Wax

I’ve used lots of hair products over the years. The Bed Head for Men by TIGI is a workable wax with matte definition. I enjoyed sampling this product. This newly designed product is easy to work with and applies rather easily. It has a nice scent to it, too.  Has a great hold, but can be adjusted for different styles throughout the day. Overall it’s a great product in my opinion! 

Frank’s RedHot Original Cayenne Pepper Sauce

This was my first time trying Frank’s RedHot Original Cayenne Pepper Sauce. I tried this hot sauce over some Ramen Noodles to give them a little kick and it tastes great. I started using only a small amount is enough to taste how hot it is. I definitely would recommend Frank’s RedHot Original Cayenne Pepper Sauce.

Kettle Brand Potato Chips in Chili Verde

I have been a huge fan of Kettle Brand Chips for a long time but I’ve never tried this flavor. These chips are absolutely delicious!! After the first bite, I was instantly hooked! I had found my new afternoon snack. They have just the right amount of spice to them. I would definitely recommend these chips!  I promise you won’t be disappointed.

I received these products complimentary from influenster.com for testing!

Olive Theory Pizzeria is one of the best worst kept secrets.

Olive Theory Pizzeria is one of the best worst kept secrets.  This place not only has super fast pizza, but delicious too.  They are the number one ranked pizza place in Illinois.  If you haven’t been there, then you need to go.  Although it is unlikely this will be the only one for long

Not only do they have pizza for one flat price!  I know.  Can you believe it? No matter what you order the price is the same for the pizzas, calzones and salads.  They have house recipes that you can alter or you can craft your own.

The best part is that Olive Theory Pizzeria is based on the olive branch.  They want to help the community by giving back.  For every 10 pizzas purchased they donate 1 pizza back to the community.  Not only are you feeding yourself, but everyone around you.

I can’t forget there is an app!  Fast ordering is easy with the app.  You can make your lunch even faster by ordering in advance.  This is a place that will easily become a favorite for lunch.


I’ve found my favorite new pizza place! When you try @olivetheorypizzeria you’ll fall in love too! #otponeyear #foodie #pizza

Park Lane Jewelry

Recently my friend Julyn Panicola asked me to model some Park Lane Jewelry for men. Julyn was always talking about how fabulous Park Lane Jewelry was, but never mentioned they sold men’s jewelry. So I went online to check out their men’s collection. I was surprised there were some pretty cool pieces at affordable prices.  And Park Lane jewelry is backed by an unconditional guarantee.
