DSC_2008

I am honestly so excited to have been given the opportunity to receive another VoxBox from Influenster! This box theme was a anything one may need if you are a bride to be, bridesmaid or like many setting off this summer for wedding season (like myself!) In this VowVoxBox I got a tide to go pen, an EcoTools Konjac sponge, Olay Regenerist Luminous moisturizer, Pure silk shaving cream and Sally Hansen Complete Salon Manicure Nail Polish in Barracuda essentially all anyone needs to feel wedding day perfect! I am already such a huge fan and user of a lot of the brands so getting to try all these new products is going to be amazing!!!!! Stay posted for more to come from this awesome VoxBox and till next time!!

I know I am a bit late to the Tory Burch Beauty bandwagon but you know what I say…better late then never! I have been eyeing the line since it came out and I don’t exactly know why but I kind of held off for a bit (probably because I wanted everything and couldn’t decide!). I ended up getting two items one was the Tory Burch roller ball fragrance and then a lipstick in Ramble On Rose. I was obsessed with the Tory Burch perfume the second I smelled it so having the roller ball for on the go is wonderful!! It the is perfect combination of fruity and floral that really makes this a wearable everyday fragrance. Ramble on Rose is such a beautiful creamy pale pink color that is the perfect for summer. The formula is also a dream, it goes on rather opaque and incredibly smooth that wont leave your lips flakey. I am so glad that I finally jumped the gun and got these and I am looking forward to adding onto this magnificent collection.

Sephora Perks

Beauty and the Beach 3

I don’t know about any of you but I love Sephora beauty insider points, and every time I pick up goodies I love seeing the amount of points just go up and up! Wether your an instant user or like me you love saving them all for a rainy day or for something truly special that you have been dying to try its always a good time. On my last trip into Sephora I was picking up some birthday goodies for my cousin and not so subtly pointing things out that I just LOVED as ideas for my upcoming birthday, there was a 500 point gift there that day I just needed to have. This Bare Minerals Beauty and the Beach gift is just like sunshine in a package for me. Inside you get a mini lipgloss in Party Starter , a mini blush in A Natural High, a mini bronzer in Sunny Days, A mini Lash Domination mascara and a little container of their all over Pure Radiance. I am such a huge fan of Bare Minerals and have been using their products since high school so this little gift really is exciting and its perfect for the upcoming summer months. All of these are going to leave anyone looking sun kissed and simply glowing and what is nice about the smaller sizes is that they will be great for those summer vacation travels. Have an awesome day everyone!

As if those pictures weren’t enough to make your mouth water let me share with all of you my newest sweet tooth obsessions from The Crispery. My mom first introduced me to these when she included one in my Easter Basket (yes I still get easter baskets, no judging!) and since then I have been hooked. Now these are unlike any other rice cereal treat I have ever had and trust me I have done my due diligence. Not only are these HUGE but they are so incredibly delicious with all kinds of wonderful flavors like Pretzel Surprise and S’mores . My beau surprised me with these after a less then stellar week and I am really practicing self control by not eating them all. Check out all of the delicious flavors from The Crispery’s online store and although all of them are wonderful so far my favorite is the classic Plain and Sweet Rice treat =) Hope you all enjoy and haven’t developed a pool of water where you are sitting from your mouth watering! (I am totally guilty of it)

Pro Foot Inserts!!!

Hi everyone!!!!!

I hope everyone had a wonderful weekend and Fathers Day! I know I haven’t post in what feels like forever but I hoping to break that terrible cycle now that I have gotten into the swing of my summer classes! I know I had already posted about my latest goodies in my GoVoxBox from Influenster but I got so many questions about my foot inserts that I decided to do a post. I did receive a pair of complementary in this VoxBox but I wanted to share with all of you that I have actually been using these inserts for months (8 to be exact!). I have really bad plantar fascists thanks to a leg surgery and because of that I have to wear inserts in basically all my shoes and some electrode therapy twice a day (no joke right) but unfortunately the inserts from my doctor only fit in my sneakers! He didn’t see what the big deal was that they wouldn’t fit in any of my other..much cuter shoes which left me stuck once again. After looking and asking around my dads good friend suggested I tried the Pro Foot specifically for my feet problems and its all been history from there (pain free too I might add). I love that these are only 3/4 length so they seriously fit in all of my shoes, I now don’t have to pick between comfort or cute shoes, who doesn’t love that. I hope that this post helps even  some of you out because foot pain is not something anyone should have to suffer with! Have a beautiful day!

GoVoxBox from Influenster

DSC_1987

Ahhh I am beyond words excited! I came home yesterday to find another Box filled with goodies from my awesome friends at Influentser. As some of you may know you with each VoxBox there is a theme and this box has an active/sportsy theme! I know I may not play sports but I do try to exercise everyday and these picks are going to fit perfectly into my already hectic life. And to let you all in on a little fun fact the ProFoot Shoe Inserts are something that I have been using for the last 8 months but a spare pair is going to come in handy. I cant wait to test these all out a little more and get back to all of you on my thoughts but until then have any of you tried any of these?
