FabFitFun Winter 2017 Box!

Hey there everyone!

I hope you all had an amazing weekend and are ready to kick off the week strong! I for one had a crazy weekend with finals and end of the semester being right around the corner. So the stress is so real right now! On the bright side, I am very excited to share my first FabFitFun box experience! I was inspired to try out these boxes from seeing many different celebrities or public figures sharing their experiences with the boxes and I thought it would be something cool to try and write about it! So let’s check out the box!

So, I was able to get $10 dollars off my first box from a code that a celebrity shared with her box, so my first box cost me $39.99. I am a seasonal member which means that I pay for my box every season & my next renewal for my next box will be in March 2018. So, it is not a monthly payment which I think is very cool!

When you first sign up for the box, you take a style quiz & answer a bunch of questions on the types of things that you would want to see in your box. So would you like to see more beauty products, more fashion or more fitness? What hair type or skin type you are, etc. This way they can fix your box to your specific style and needs!

When I first opened my box, I was very pleasantly surprised! All the products were exactly to my needs & full size!

The first item I received was the BB Dakota Poncho! This is perfect for lounging or traveling this season, this ultra-cozy knit poncho will be your chic defense against chilly nights! I love the material. It’s not scratchy, it’s actually pretty soft! It’s perfect for really any occasion & pairs well with almost anything. 10/10 would totally recommend!

The next item is the AHAVA Mineral Hand Cream! When I first tried this I was very much surprised. I thought it would smell strong and be overly oily. It actually smelled GREAT (very subtle) and felt amazing on my hands. The lotion actually has Dead Sea minerals mixed with other natural ingredients which save your hands from any environmental & household damage. Another (very big) plus is that it is cruelty free, vegan, and allergy tested for sensitive skin! TRIPLE THREAT! By far this is one of my new favorite products that came in the box.

I mean who doesn’t love new mugs?! This cute Homemade mug by Ayesha Curry is absolutely adorable! Even better… it’s full sized! This mug also comes in 2 different designs but I honestly relate with this style the most. I love the simplistic design to the mugs and the humor that is on the mug. Absolutely adorable!

I own way more fuzzy socks than I know what to do with… and now I have another pair I can add to my collection! They are Pointe Studio Infused Cozy Socks! I love that these fuzzy socks are aloe infused which makes your feet extremely soft and feel amazing. When you are lounging around the house this holiday these socks are a must-have.

Next up is the Kate Somerville ExfoliKate! I have a sensitive skin complexion so using skin care products is crucial for me not to break out. I had really bad acne in middle school and some of high school until I started using a line of Mary Kay skin care products so using new products can be a scary thing. But I have to say this product surprised me the most out of everything. After washing my face I applied the exfoliate on to my face and left it on for a little under a minute and then washed it off. Immediately I felt a difference in my skin texture and appearance. It felt more smooth, my pores had shrunk, and I had a bright glow to my face. Overall it was a great product and I can’t wait to use it again!

This next product was one of my free “add-on” items that came inside of my box! It is the Works Deep Sleep Pillow Spray. At school sometimes I have a hard time falling asleep some nights. When I read the bottle, it says that it will help you fall asleep faster and wake up feeling more refreshed. It actually works great! I felt more refreshed than ever the next morning and ready to kick off my day. The scent is absolutely wonderful. It’s a mix of natural lavender, vetiver, and chamomile. I use it every night since I received the box!

This item I have not used yet, but I will definitely be trying it out soon! It is the Nelson j Beverly Hills Moisture Healing Mask. This product you are supposed to use to protect your hair before or after you go swimming. This will totally come in handy when I go to Florida after Christmas (yes there will be a blog about the trip)! So far what I like about the product is the smell. Normally I am not a huge fan of the coconut smell, but I love the coconut scent for this hair mask. I can’t wait to use it!

Next is the DOUCCE Freematic Eyeshadow Pro Palette! I love the color scheme for this eyeshadow. I am very much a neutral color girl. So I love the simplicity of the colors and the shades. It goes on your eyes super smooth and really makes your eyes pop, which I absolutely love about the palette.

Last product is the 8 Other Reasons Nine Lives Choker. I am always very skeptical when I receive jewlry online. Mainly because I’m not sure how cute it will look when I receive it in person. But I love the look of this necklace. It is super simple and pairs well with everything!

Processed with VSCO with a5 preset

Overall, I think the FabFitFun Winter 2017 Box was a big success! All of the products that came inside, were high quality and I was amazed at how well they worked or looked. All the products in my box totaled a $395 value, that I paid $39.99 for! I would highly recommend FabFitFun for anyone who is looking to try new products and is ready to explore new brands!

I hope you enjoyed this post and I encourage you all to go and check it out, sign up & enjoy your FabFitFun experience! Also, if you haven’t already, be sure to go and follow me on social media & keep up to date with everything going on! Have a great week everyone and I will talk to you all again soon!

Fallin’ Into Fun!

Hey there everyone!

I hope everyone had an amazing, fun filled weekend & are ready to keep the momentum going this week! I know I had a great weekend full of fun fall activities and spending time with those I love. Anyone who knows me knows how much I love anything fall! I love the cozy fall fashions, the color changing leaves, the cooler weather & all the apple cider and doughnuts I desire! Everything about the fall season makes me absolutely happy inside. So I wanted to share with you some fun fall activities to get you as excited about the season as I am!

Apple Orchard / Cider Mill Visit

This is a tradition that I have a special place in my heart! Ever since I was super little my parents would always take my sister and I to our local pumpkin patch or apple orchard for cider & doughnuts! There is so much that you can do there! From picking apples to hayrides to eating warm cider & doughnuts, it is a tradition that everyone should have this fall!

Get spooked at your local haunted house

If you are one of those people who loves a good spook be sure to attend your local haunted house! They are a for sure way to scare your pants off and give you that adrenaline rush that you have been wanting.

Host a bonfire

If you were a Girl Scout, now is the time to put those fire building skills to work! As the temperature gets cooler bonfires are a great way to bring people together outside! Bring marshmallows and some blankets and you have the perfect activity for a cool fall night!

Do your own fall photo-shoot

If you have some fall outfits that you have been dying to throw on and capture the beauty of the fall colors then you should totally do a fall photo-shoot! Find a cute area (apple orchard, park or your own backyard), bring a camera or a phone with a good camera &  just have fun with it! IMG_2103

Have a cozy movie night

There is nothing that I love more than watching classic Halloween movies with my boyfriend or friends. Throw on some Pj’s, grab a blanket, pop some popcorn, throw in Hocus Pocus and enjoy the night!

Shop local farmers market

This season is one of the best times to hit up your local farmers market! I know my school hosts a local farmers market every Wednesday to give students a chance to pick up local fresh produce and specialty items! You end up supporting local businesses and find a new gems for your pantry!

Go on a fall hike

Nothing is better than crisp fall air & the beautiful changing leaves, so now is the perfect time to find local trails to walk through. After spending all week in a classroom it is nice to reconnect with nature and enjoy the outdoors before snow hits!

Carve Pumpkins

One of my favorite traditions is carving pumpkins! It’s one of the many ways to be creative during the fall season. Whether you carve or paint your pumpkins it’s the best way to get in the Halloween spirit! Aren’t these pumpkins “boo-tiful?”

I hope you all have a great rest of your week and have a wonderful weekend ahead of you! Thank you for tuning in everyone!

Back to School ~ Must Haves!

Hey there lovelies!

TGIF! It’s time for another beautiful weekend after a long week of work and no play. With summer almost over and heading back to school in the distance, I’ve been thinking a lot about packing, back to school shopping & all the must-haves I need before driving 3 hours back to Grand Valley! I go back to Grand Valley next Saturday, so I am officially down to the wire with everything I need to do & buy before going back! I thought since I am going into my 3rd year of college, I have basically perfected my back to school “must haves!”

unnamed

Above are some of the”essentials” that you should always have when going back to school!

Backpack ~ I mean, how else are you going to carry around everything you need for class? Make sure it’s a sturdy one as well, the last thing you need, on top of stressing about classes, is a backpack that hurts your back, and isn’t well supported!

Wallet ~ I never go anywhere without my wallet. It’s crucial if I ever need to show ID or use my cash to pay for my extra large coffee in the mornings!

Cell Phone ~ This has to be a no brainer for most people. No matter where I go or what I do, I ALWAYS need my cell phone on me. You never know who might try to call you!

Comfy pair of shoes ~ One things for sure, you will be doing a TON of walking around campus! I suggest you get a pair of tennis shoes or Sperry’s boat shoe. Both are perfect options for the amount of steps that you will get in each day.

Jeans ~ At least every girl needs one pair of comfortable jeans that you can wear around campus. Jeans & a T-shirt is a timeless look for when you want the perfect mix of comfortable and casual.

Casual T-shirt ~ Like I said above, you can never go wrong with a comfortable T-shirt and  Jeans/ Leggings. It’s something easy to throw on & can easily be dressed up or down!

Laptop ~ Now, I don’t really have a MacBook, but I do have an HP Pavillion. Either way, entering college you NEED a good laptop! It’s probably the most important thing that will be on your college list.

Baseball Hat ~ For those days that your hair just won’t agree with you, or you honestly don’t want to do anything with it, just throw on a cute baseball cap! My go to is a Detroit Tigers hat, because I have to rep my city of course!

Sunglasses ~ Especially for those sunny end of summer/ fall days, you need a pair of sunglasses. I never leave home without my sunglasses!

Body Spray ~ I absolutely love body spray! It’s perfect for that little bit of fruity smell that you want, without being overwhelmingly strong as perfume.

Hand Lotion ~ I never leave my place without using a little hand lotion on my hands. It smells great, and who doesn’t love soft & smooth hands?!

Notebook/ Planner ~ Both notebooks and a planner are super important! I almost always prefer to write my notes down on paper, because I believe it helps me visualize better (that is unless, the class I am in requires me to take notes down on my laptop). Either way,  having both a notebook and planner are crucial to keep track of everything going on in your classes & personal agenda!

Water Bottle ~ Drinking water is very important. I’ve always been a huge water drinker, so I never leave my water bottle at home! I love my insulated stainless steel water bottle. It keeps my water ice cold for hours!

Headphones ( not listed) ~ When walking to class, I love listening to my music, so headphones is a must for me no matter where I am going!

Coffee Mug / Travel Mug ~ Whether at home or on the go, mugs are always needed! Anyone who knows me, knows how much I love to collect mugs! No matter where you are going, you should never leave without a fresh pot of coffee and a good travel mug!

Gum ~ I am a huge advocate for fresh breath, so I almost always have a pack of gum with me! I never leave home without it!

Quarter-Zip Sweatshirt ~ I love sweatshirts! It’s perfect for those in between cold and hot days to just cozy up and relax!

Blanket (Special Item) ~ Everyone needs a cozy blanket when they go back to school. I personally love my mermaid blanket! It’s not super big, it’s the perfect size to cozy up on my couch with a good book.

What are some of your back to school essentials? Please let me know! Have a fun and safe weekend everyone!

Weekend Packing Essentials

Hey there lovelies!

The long week is over, thank god it’s Friday & time for a fabulous weekend! I am heading to Kalamazoo this weekend to see my boyfriend for one last weekend apart before we will be back to school together, and boy do we have some fun stuff planned! We are heading to South Haven (Soha) this weekend and spending every waking moment in the sun, on the boat & in the water! I thought this would be the perfect opportunity to share with you my list of packing essentials for the 3 day weekend away.

Anyone who knows me, knows that I pack to the fullest extent. My motto is that I would always rather be over prepared than underprepared so I am ready for anything that may come my way. I have everything under the sun and then some. For starters I start with my 3 bags that I will be carrying my cargo in. I have my Scout Weekender Duffle, makeup bag, and purse. Since we are also going to the beach I added my beach tote for extra space for the beach. I listed everything else that I am packing below:


Clothing: 

  • Romper ( TjMaxx)
  • Light Sweater
  • Nice T’shirt (x2) (H&M)
  • Jean Skirt (AEO)
  • Shorts + Jeans (AEO)
  • Sandals (Marhalls)
  • Tommy Hilfingers (Marshalls)
  • Underwear (PINK)
  • Swim Suit (Target: BottomsTop)

Toiletries: 

  • Cleanser + Moisturizer (Mary Kay)
  • Sunscreen
  • Lotion
  • Perfume & Deodorant 
  • Brush
  • Shampoo & Conditioner 
  • Makeup products

Misc: 

  • Phone charger  
  • Wallet  (Kate Spade
  • Keys
  • Laptop (optional) 

It may seem like a lot of stuff to bring for just 3 days, but like I said before, it’s always better to be over- prepared than under-prepared. I’ll be sure to share all the details & pictures I take from our adventures over this weekend! I’m wishing everyone a happy, safe & fun weekend!

Sale Shopping!

Processed with VSCO with f2 preset

Hey There Everyone!

Sorry it’s been a little while since I last posted, I hope you all are having a good week! I thought I would take today to update you on my recent purchases! So the other day,  I had a full day of shopping for school! Even though going back to school is kinda depressing and classes starting sucks, there is one thing to ALWAYS look forward to, back to school SHOPPING! I especially love sales when it comes to shopping for clothing for school, because let’s be honest, who doesn’t love a good sale. I hit up a few of my all time favorite stores for the pieces that are shown below!

Processed with VSCO with p5 preset

I always hate when jean skirts are too tight and short and don’t really work for my body type most times but, I finally found one that is gorgeous and fits perfectly! I usually only shop at American Eagle for Jeans but I came across this gem and just had to have it. It’s their AEO Light Denim Vintage High-Rise Skirt!

Super soft, lightweight, and so cozy. I stumbled across this gem in a sale bin at H&M. Such a great find!

Kohls

I love makeup but the products that I had recently been using were overpriced & weren’t doing great things for my complexion. So I decided to change some of the products I have been using & boy am I glad I did! I especially love my new Almay makeup wipes! They are fresh and hydrating and get everything off in a few wipes. Most definitely a product I can’t live without. Everything else that I got you can see below, but comment if you have any other questions on the pieces I bought!

I hope you all have a fabulous Wednesday & I’ll have another post coming to you really soon!

Summer Sundress Season

Processed with VSCO with t1 presetProcessed with VSCO with c2 presetProcessed with VSCO with f2 preset

Hey There!

Happy Thursday everyone! I know that the weeks are long and tough, but just keep in mind that tomorrow is Friday & the beautiful weekend begins!

Summer is the absolute BEST time of year! Sun’s out, schools out, and sundresses are out!! Sundresses are the “go to” for all special occasions during the summer time. They are easily to dress up or down for either a casual outing or a fancy dinner. On Tuesday, I was able to go to the Detroit movie premiere in the Downtown Detroit area. I was not able to get pictures of the inside (sadly), so I will have to just stick with the before pictures of my outfit. The dress code was business casual, so nothing super fancy. The dress I am styling is a Woman’s Cold Shoulder Gauze Dress (Cream) from Target (sale)! It’s super comfortable, the fabric is light & soft which is totally perfect for the warm summer air. I also love cream color on my skin tone in the summer because my skin tone darkens, so it’s perfect! I think my favorite part are the shoes, because lets be honest who doesn’t love shoes! The wedges are TOMS Natural Yarn Dye Women’s Sienna Wedges, which are currently on sale (score!) I love these shoes, they are super light weight, comfortable, and stylish! If the event was a little more casual, I would add my Levi’s Original Denim Trucker Jacket. Overall, I think this look can easily go from day to night with just a few simple changes and not to mention it’s super easy to throw on and wear, no fuss!

Have a great Thursday!

Sending Good Vibes!
