♡Tips for Being Bikini Ready!♡

A quick post I figured I would make for all of you wanting to be bikini ready for the last months of Summer!

I'm heading on vacation in 2 weeks to the beach, and although I don't have the most buff bod ever, there are little things you can do to make yourself more comfortable and confident to rock a bikini!

My tips:
-Stay hydrated! Drink plenty of water and even green tea, it can help boost your metabolism and give you energy!

-Speaking of energy: take your vitamins! also, be sure to eat lots of healthy foods before your bikini outing, it can help prevent any bloating. If you're into energy drinks, try something else that might be a bit healthier:
Bikini Ready Energy Gummies! Check out their Facebook page:
to see what their product is all about! I received mine complimentary from Influenster (check out my previous post) and they really area an easy way to get energized!

-Stay protected! Be sure to wear SPF all over, even if you're big into tanning! SPF 30 at the least will help keep you protected but still allow you to tan. Don't think you have to burn in order to tan, you don't! Keeping up with your SPF and moisturizing after will help you keep your summer glow and your skin will thank you for it later!

I hope you liked these quick tips all! Rock that bikini and enjoy these last couple months of warm weather! :)

♡Influenster Unboxing: Vitality Voxbox♡

Hi my loves!

I'm back with another Influenster box review! This one was geared more towards wellness, which I have to admit is not my favorite box but nonetheless has some good products in it!

Here is what the box came with:

-First Degree Advanced Burn Cream
-Playtex Sport Fresh Balance tampons
-Elizabeth Arden FLAWLESS FUTURE: Powdered by Ceramide Caplet Serum
-Pure Leaf Iced Tea
-Softlips Cube
-Bikini Ready Energy Gummies

Overall, this isn't as exciting for me personally because I'm a big hair and makeup product junkie, and only get these kinds of things when I run out. However, I was excited about the Soflips lip balm, and my hubby trued out the energy gummies and really liked them! lol Everything else I will definitely get use of eventually and it was fun unboxing everything!

To see a full review, be sure to watch my video on my channel! :

♡Influenster Vow Vox Box Review♡

Hi all!

I'm back with another review from a box I received complimentary from Influenster! They sent me another box to try out which was the vow vox box full of wedding related goodies! This box is catered not only to brides, but to bridesmaids, mothers-of-the-bride, wedding guests, etc which is great!

This box had some items that I feel really fit the "wedding" theme and some that I wasn't so sure about but still love regardless and can't wait to try! Stay tuned for my video review on my Youtube channel as well!

Here is the box I received:

Here's what's in the box:
-Sally Hansen Complete Salon Manicure nail polish: barracuda:
I love this polish! It's such a pretty color, especially for Spring and Summer. I personally don't feel that it fits the "wedding" theme as I would expect a light pink or nude, but that is just a personal preference. I'm not getting married as I already am, but love the color regardless and can't wait to try out the formula! :)

-Olay Regenerist Luminous Tone Perfecting Cream
I am so so excited about this!! It's a full size moisturizer!! WHAT?! :D I love Olay and have been thinking about purchasing a new cream I can use for preventing aging, but this one not only helps with that but combats dark spots! So exciting, because I have acne scars I'd like to fade. Can't wait to try this out for sure!!

-Riley & Grey
This box came with a Riley & Grey card which features the Riley & Grey website which is catered to those who are getting married and allows you to keep track of guests addresses and RSVP's. Such a cool idea! It came with a coupon code discount for the website too so you can create your own website page. Awesome!

-Pure Silk Moisturizing Shave Cream: Raspberry Mist
I personally don't use shave cream (I'm lazy) but I thought this was nice for the box! What bride and maids don't want to have smooth legs for their wedding day? Anyway, I might take it for travel! It's a full size but I may use it just because the smell sounds like it's gonna be good!

-EcoTools Pure Complexion Sponge
Okay, so this one is neat! This is a konjac sponge, you know, those nifty antibacterial, natural sponges everyone is raving about lately! I'm kind of intrigued! Although I have my set skincare routine, I might use this to wash my face and see how it works! I'm very interested to see what all it can do!

-Tide-to-Go Pen
What can I say about this? It's a great idea and everyone can use a Tide-to-go pen! Great to stick in your purse, and especially great to have on hand on your wedding day! No bride wants stains on her dress!

Overall I love this box and I'm so grateful to Influenster for sending me these products to test and try out! So excited especially for the Olay moisturizer and nail polish from Sally Hansen! :)

Hope you enjoyed this post and got some ideas on what to possibly get your bride-to-be best friend or other wedding person! lol Thanks for reading!!

♡Influenster Rimmel Moisture Renew Voxbox Review♡

Hi all!

Back to share with you a sneak peak at my first impressions of the new & improved Rimmel Moisture Renew Lipstick! Influenster was so kind to send me this lipstick to try and test out for free, so I'm super excited to share my thoughts with you!

Here is what I got in the mail!

Super pretty color for spring!!! I have not tried it on me personally, because I have a color similar! But I am going to be giving it to a friend. I do have some good things to say about it though! First thing I noticed was the packaging. I have some of the older Moisture Renew Lipsticks from Rimmel and I love them! The packaging looks a little different but is still the same great sturdy quality! It's also really pretty :)

 The color looks super saturated as well, and very vibrant! And also, the smell is really good! It has a slight fruity scent which is super nice!

 I'm so glad I got the chance to try this out though! I plan on purchasing from the new line and getting some colors I don't already have! I love the old formula and there is no doubt that this isn't just the same amazing quality, but even better!

Thanks again to Influenster for letting me try this new lipstick out!
