Whenever I think of Palmolive, the colors green, yellow and orange are the first images to pop into my mind. Those cheap, chemical smelling dish soaps have come a long way since my college days! As soon as I opened up this package, I chuckled because Palmolive chose not to forgo their whole approach but to revamp their signature tenfold. I gave the lemon thyme to a friend and tried the white tea & ginger (love that combination) first. Right away, the freshness hits your olfactory organs but doesn’t linger on your dishes. It’s not overpowering nor does it stay on your hands either (although I wouldn’t mind!). The consistency was a tad thin/watery, but the suds didn’t disappoint. I actually
love this Palmolive primp up!
Influenster has opened my eyes faster to several new products that i might not ever have discovered…okay, i take that back; it might just have taken me a little longer to discover them. ;] i got the invite to join through a friend here in LA. we worked together and just by word of mouth got me interested in this website where you can sample full sized “samples” of some of the newest, trendiest products on the market right now. of course, who wouldn’t jump at the chance to be a pioneer in the latest items for sale? so i signed up and wrote a couple of reviews, kind of stuck my toes in. then a few months later, i got an email about my first voxbox! it was like christmas when i opened my first package. the concept is so cool and a great way for businesses to promote their products. i’ve gotten a few more voxboxes since that first one, and each is just as great as the last. it’s amazing what just talking about a product will do. if you like something, then you’ll turn at least one or two friends onto it, and the domino effect continues. i feel the same about influenster as many of the products/places i love. can’t live without this amazing system of spreading the word!

I feel like the darkness in my soul that my old job had created is gradually dissipating as I type. I can read again, I can write again. I can RIGHT again the factors of life that weren’t doing so well. I can focus on ME, not the hellacious environment that was taking a number on my sanity, my relationships [with the people closest to me], my mental state overall… I smile for real. I smile and laugh like I mean it. I don’t feel like someone is constantly on my back worried that I’m incapable of accomplishing the simplest tasks. it’s internally damaging when your boss thinks you have the IQ of a sewer rat. it’s also damaging when they expect you to act professionally and they display otherwise (throwing tantrums in the office lately?)…or just selective memory. how do you run a successful business when you can’t even remember what you told your employees two days ago? or how about treating your most loyal like crap (a $0.25 raise in two years for Mireya, no raise in a year and a half for myself). yet, you open another store front that isn’t making you the money you thought it would, you drive a high end luxury vehicle, just
bought a three story townhouse and you claim you’re broke?!
this isn’t a rant to put down those that were nice enough to employ me
for three years. but that’s basically all they did. a successful company runs on trust, reliable co-workers, and organization —for starters. and your business has none of that on top of many other things.
it just feels good to not dread going into a job every sunday. it feels good that I can say I no longer work for a pair of neurotic, micromanaging hypocrites who can’t run a business (a law school failure and pseudo pastry chef that can’t even replicate her bakers’ recipes).
I smile like I really mean it!
we saw a shooting star on the rooftop parking deck at arclight! brandon and I saw it simultaneously, and he had time to say “whoaaaaa” before dylan turned around to witness it as well. I have been missing out on some meteor sitings so I was sooo stoked to see this one!
