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


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?

Rimmel Stay Matte and NYC Expert Last Lip Color

Yay!! Spring is here..finally! When it comes to a spring I love keeping my make up light and fresh just like the weather.  If you saw my earlier post all about my UniVoxBox then you would have seen these two gems that I received thanks to Influensetr! After several weeks of trials with these two products I couldn’t wait to share them with you all!


The Rimmel Stay Matte Liquid Mousse Foundation has been such a complete dream. For the last two weeks I have switched out my standard BB Cream for this product, It is so light and what a love is that a little goes a long way. I hardly needed any to get the coverage I was looking for and what I love the most is that since I have oily skin this product really tried to combat that! Who doesn’t love not having to blot or check for shine on their face less often. I snapped this shameless selfie of date night look after using it and I love how natural and effortless it made my skin!!!

Lately I have been trying to broaden my lip color horizon so to speak and have been searching for the perfectly bright pink that will give me a fun pop of color for the sunshine. Being a huge NYC Cosmetics fan I knew this Expert Last Lip Color was going to be a match made in lipstick heaven. They have the impact that anyone is looking for, the staying power of a lip stain and yet it won’t break the bank (so feel free to buy two…or three if your me)! I got the color Forever Fuscia but I have been eyeing the colors Smooch and Peach Fizz, they look like such great colors for any occasion!

UniVoxBox from Influenster


Every so often I am fortunate enough to get picked from the wonderful people at Influenster to receive one of their themed VoxBoxes. If you have never heard of them before then let me just fill you in on the wonderfulness that this company is!

Influenster is a company/community where everyday people can share their thoughts, opinions and even ask questions to the Influenster community on products, food, travel anything you can think of! When you think about it hasn’t there been a time where you weren’t sure about a product or even a restaurant and you wish you could know what others thought about it after trying it? I know I do on basically a daily basis and that is exactly what makes Influsentser so ingenious!

So when you are picked to receive a VoxBox they are filled with products that you would see in your local store but they are sent to you completely free and all you do is try it all and share your opinion with the Influenster community! This UniVoxBox was geared toward college students and products and items that makes our lives easier and products that help with our crazy and often hectic schedules! I have been using these fun products for about two weeks now and I have to say they are AWESOME!!!! From the fun lip color from NYC Cosmetics that give my lips a fun pop of color for spring (and I don’t have to keep reapplying) and the Blackberry Current Tea drops from Red Rose that I throw in my school bag and add to my water when I want some flavor its is all amazing (and being put to good use).

There will be more posts coming from me on the products in this box but I was so excited to share with all of you the fun stuff that I got and give you all a little insight into the Influenster community!
