iVi Scents



iVi Scents is only a few months old, and I have a strong feeling that it is going to change the soap game. Aarin Elizabeth is the owner of iVi Scents, and I think that she is AWESOME! She is very friendly, and knowledgable about what she is doing, and her customer service skills are unmatchable. She takes time to talk to her customers on twitter through out the day, and she answers emails quickly! I admire her because she is an entrepreneur, and she is making major moves, PLUS, her products are AMAZING!

I haven't had a chance to delve into everything that iVi Scents has to offer. In the last month she has added a spray, and a body oil which will surely be added to my next order. What I have tried are the ismell soaps, and the ishine sugar.

ismell soaps: Each and every one smells amazing. I have never used a soap that lathers the way that the ismell soaps do. They lather like a body wash, but they don't leave my skin dry. I remember a few years ago I tried a body wash from Olay that had lotion in it. It was very moisturizing, but it caused me to break out. The ismell soap leaves my skin feeling moisturized and soft like that body wash, minus the breakouts. My favorite moment with the soap was after I shaved my legs and underarms. I thought that it would burn when using the soap after I shaved, like any other soap, but I kid you not, It didn't burn at all, and that has never happened before!! I will never be able to go back to Dove, because there are absolutely no cons with these soaps.

ishine sugars: This was my first time ever using a sugar scrub, so I didn't know what to expect. I only had a sample, so I used it in on my legs, and after I rinsed it off my skin felt like butter!! It removed the dull skin, and left my legs glistening, and smelling oh so good! The smell stayed with me the next day. So, I ended up ordering 3 :-)

Uncertain

I can’t believe that I am going to tour another college today. After all of the riff raff that I’ve gone through to get into The University of Alabama, I am going to visit UAB tomorrow. I even did an application, and paid a $30 application fee. I’ve been very tight with my money lately, but for some reason it is still disappearing. Any who, I just feel like I NEED to check out at least one other school to make sure I am making the right decision. If I like UAB, and what they are about then I’ll try to go there, but if not UA is where the heart is. There are pros and cons for both schools. I just don’t know. Ugh! I feel a bit iffy, but this is something I have to do for me. It must be done!

Late Night Special

Its almost 5 in the morning and I’m still up. WTF??? ugh! I think I have a sleeping disorder. I’m still thinking about school and going away and everything. I’m excited, so excited that I can’t stop thinking about it to go to sleep like a normal person. I’m going to do a little bit of dorm shopping this weekend, mostly for storage type things since it is on sale. I think I’m going to wait and talk to my future roommate before I get a comforter and stuff, because I will not be able to tolerate a tacky room. I also plan on getting the new 5th generation iPod nano this weekend. My iPod nano is 2nd generation, and its time to get a new one. I’m going to get the pink one. It has a video camera on it, which is so cool! I’m going to save up my money so that I can get the camera that I want instead of just settling for one. I know I did a long post about cameras, but I really want the Cyber shot h20, so I’m going to save up for it and hopfully I’ll have it by Christmas.

Ready 2 GO!!!

I received my University of Alabama acceptance letter last Tuesday, and since then my mind has been in over drive. I’m pretty sure about 20 more of my hairs have turned gray. I’ve got to make good grades while I’m in school over here, and plan for moving in January. I have to find out what dorm I’ll be staying in, and buying stuff for the room. I’m not going to go over board. I’m just going to get what I need, and the basics. I’m going to start shopping for things this weekend because I know Walmart and Target have really good sales going on. I’m looking for the following:

Bed Comforter

Twin XL sheets (2 sets)

Storage (3 tier, plastic storage boxes, underbed storage)

Towels & washclothes

Everything else I’ll worry about as time progresses.

I’m excited about this new chapter in my life, although I’m a bit late, but better late than never! : )

Wake Me Up When August Ends

I went to GA this weekend to chill with my siblings while my parents went out of town for their 16 year anniversary. I had a good time with them, but now its back to reality. I’m going back to work, finally!! I went to my job on Monday of last week, and pointed out that I want to work, and I really need the hours, so I’m actually working three days this week, which is great since I haven’t worked since June, and during that month I only worked 2 days.

School has been getting on my nerves already, but I am determined to make the presidents list this semester, so I’m not going to over examine it all just now. I got into an argument Thursday with one of my friends, and I haven’t talked to him since then. I feel bad, but at the same time, I don’t. He is always being rude to me, and he always has something negative to say about everything I do. I could see if I was like that towards people, but I’m not. That is why I take offense to people always being hateful and negative. I am the type of person who chooses their battles, and Thursday he crossed the freakin line! He is the type that doesn’t really care about what I have to say, and thats fine, however I’m not just going to let it go this time. I’m sick!!!

Hopefully we’ll come to some type of mutual agreement, because this is getting ridiculous!! One week we’re cool, the next week we’re ready to fight!! I’ve known this friend for 18 yrs. We’re supposed to be best friends, but he doesn’t treat me like a best friend.

On another note, I deleted my myspace page!! lol. I’ve been talking about doing it for a while. I’ve had it since 2006, and I’m just tired of dealing with it. I like facebook and twitter way better.

School….ugh!

I AM NOW AN AVON REPRESENTATIVE: http://youravon.com/jasminegooden

Please be sure to check out my Avon site, and place an order. There are some really great deals this campaign!! I really appreciate it!!

School has started once again. My little break was less than two weeks, and I’m back at again. Tests, tests, and more tests. I’m so tired of taking tests!! lol. I am taking psychology, microeconomics, American literature, and Spanish. I have Spanish with two of my friends, so that should be interesting. I have class tomorrow, but I’m still up and wide awake for some reason. I am so mad because I’ve been trying to get my books since Friday. Friday morning I got up super early, and got in line. I ended up looking my spot because I had to go to class. After class the wait was like 2 hours, so I just said bump it! I went today, waited two hours, was inline with the books I needed, and the system shut down. I was so mad that I couldn’t get mad, if that makes any sense. I’m going to try again in the morning. They gave me some ticket that will allow me to jump in front of people when I get there. lol. I know somebody is going to be MAD. lol.

I’m hoping to accomplish a few things during the month of September. I need to get a new camera, a replacement emblem for my car, and some new shoes. I also need to get a new car battery, as well as renew my tag. Ugh! Its all good though. I may not have to renew my tag until October, but I can’t remember.

I Don’t Know What to DO!!!

Its almost 4am, and I just woke up my friend through a text message explaining that I needed advice. I was just sitting here, and all of a sudden I thought about the fact that I just may be rushing to The University too fast. Most community college students stay in community college for two years, but I have been wanting to go off to school so bad that I haven’t really taken into consideration the cost. Of course I know that school cost waaaay too much money and all, but University is different from JUCO. My pell grant isn’t going to cover everything, and leave some over for me. I would have to take out loans and all of that, and it still may not be enough. My friend (Serg) is supposed to be moving too, and he said that the same thing has been on his mind. MONEY. Trying to pay for all of these expenses. Gosh! If I wait until next year to transfer I will qualify for a transfer scholarship called Alabama’s Promise. It will guarantee that my tuition and fees are paid. I think that it is a great option. I just don’t know what to do. I want to leave this town so bad, but at the same time, I don’t want to trouble my parents with possibly having to take out a loan or something to help me pay for school, when I can just wait one more semester and start at UA during Fall 2010. I just don’t know.
