The pens came from Pilot pens just simply because I complimented them on their awesome pens - they emailed back and said they would send me a "sample" and was surprised to find these as their samples. ;)

Made-For-TV Movie Vault: A Face to Die For (1996)

Starring (AKA Who You May Know): Yasmine Bleeth is the one that stands out probably. She was in Baywatch and a couple of other notable Lifetime movies that will surely be reviewed at some point. She plays quiet, insecure Emily who has scars on her face from a car accident when she was young that killed her father. She's a costume designer at the local theater company and works for an old man who sells pricey art to bitches like Mrs. Burman. James Wilder : Know way in heck would you recognize this name, but he pops up in another fabulous Lifetime Movie Our Mother's Murder. From the two movies I have seen him in he's a dick in both of them - and does pretty well!

Plot: As previously mentioned, Emily lives in the shadows of her scarred face. She's quiet and self conscious and treated like crud by her sister and mother. Clearly, the black sheep of the family. Emily works for a rich old man, where she first meets Alec. Alec ignores her scarred up face and falls in love with her even going so far as to propose to her. Everything seems perfect, until Alec threatens to leave town because of some financial shizz. Afraid to loose her "only one true love" she helps him steal from the Old Man she works for. Things go wrong and the old man has a heart attack, she stays and ends up going to jail while Alec runs away with her sister. She gets beat up in prison and meets a surgeon who magically repairs her face! SURPRISE! She looks EXACTLY like his ex-wife. EXACTLY. Which means they were separated at birth. Emily flips her lid, leaves the Doctor and starts her own fashion design business under the new name of Adrienne. She becomes super successful and no one seems to know that she used to be Emily - not even her own sister or Alec. Anywho, Alec catches on and he ends up dead. Happy ending.

What the..? I know it's Lifetime, but...: This story seems awfully far fetched to be a true story - or even loosely based on one. It is a book however, which makes more sense. I just think it's ridiculous how no one knows that Adrienne is Emily. Pfft, oh well. That's a movie for you. ;)

Lifetime Cliche Attached: Scarred-girl-gets-plastic-surgery-and-revenge. Whaaaaaaat?

Watch it NOW:

Mailbox Freebies: July 29-August10th!

The school supplies were from Office Max. Jamie from sent me a $5 gift card on the app Wrapp and had no minmum! 

The Fels-Naptha bar was from a Purex Insider promotion. Unfortunately, my first time testing the product didn't really work, so I might try again.

The 3 Venus Razors came from a Twitter promotion! I had no idea I had 3 coming to me! 

The spatula was from the Alexia Ambassador Program! They were clearancing out products and had enough points!

The pink hair extension was a promotion that Uniwigs had and they were giving away 10,000!

The elastic bands were from Stylehunters. I was supposed to get the Almay Lip Balm but something happened and I never received it. I emailed them and they didn;t know what happened either but said they would send me these instead. I'm cool with anything.

The BIC pen was from their month long promotion!

I got 3 of the E-cigs intro kits from Green Smoke with the intention to give them to Dan. However, even though I checked the non-menthol ones, they sent me three of the mentol ones, so Dan wouldn't use them. Bummer, but I will put them in the rummage sale!

The dog samples will also be in a little Doggie pack for the Rummage Sale.

The Smashbox primer samples were easy to get - they were giving away 150,000. In total I got 4.

The BA Star samples were from their website for cheerleading. 

The Nexcare waterproof bandages were from their Facebook page.

The Scribble buster was actually sent to me from the UK, surprisngly! I saw they were offering samples on Twitter and asked if they'd be willing to send me some and they were nice enough to do so! They don't even have their product on market yet, but VERY soon.

The Bath and Body 3oz lotion was free if you went into a store this past Saturday and showed them a print out of the ad or on your phone!
