My thoughts, my Influenster

I joined Influenster in August of 2012 and I have been a huge fan since.  It is a site ( http://www.influenster.com ) where you can share product reviews and information.  By giving reviews and rating products, I am able to make informed decisions when I try and purchase new products.

My favourite VoxBox was the Mystery Brand hair product review.  I tried the sample sized products that were sent to me then a few weeks later the product was revealed as the Garnier Fructis Damage Eraser line.  I was sent full product sizes of the Shampoo, Conditioner, Deep Conditionr and the Split-End serum.  I continue to use this hair care line to this date.  This along with trying Sally Hansen’s nail polishes throughout the couple years has been such a fun and interesting experience.

Since 2012, there have been several changes, from the expansion into Canada, website updating and now the most recent InfluensterApp for my iPhone.  During the updates, I had run into a glitch in my account, the people at Influenster were quick to respond and to fix the problem.  A great company overall.

Thank you, Influenster for giving consumers a voice!

Restaurant Review: Sushi Fanatics… truly FANTASTIC

As a foodie, I am always looking to try different food and restaurants.  While out doing errands with my friend, she remembered seeing a new sushi restaurant close to our destination… the mall.   😉

Above was our view from our beautiful round booth, we adored the decor from the chic colours to the classy chandeliers.  Our server brought us their all-you-can-eat lunch menu/order sheet which made ordering easy and fast.  We ordered some familiar things off their menu as well as some sushi rolls we were familiar with.  We were more than impressed with what we received.

For me, presentation is always key and they did not disappoint.  I would have to say, the highlight of my meal was the Bacon wrapped asparagus.  It looked fairly simply, but WOW!  The flavour was outstanding, the bacon had a smokey taste and with a touch of red balsamic vinegar… I was completely blown away!

The staff was courteous and professional and the food was nothing short of gourmet!  In speaking with one of the owners, I had a chance to get a feel for the care and forward thinking he had shared with his brother and where they saw their restaurant going.  They took great strides to listen to their customer dynamic and how to keep them coming back for more.  The restaurant is both adult and family friendly.

Now, typically my friend and I love to document our excursions via selfies and such, it was nice to know that the staff did not make us feel uncomfortable and seemed to be proud of their establishment.  That’s an extra bonus for me!

Overall, I believe I have finally found my go-to spot for affordable gourmet quality food.  I was encouraged to come back for their dinner menu which I definitely will!
