Product Review: Influenster Surf's Up VoxBox

Tuesday, July 29, 2014


Happy Tuesday!

I enjoy receiving these kinds of boxes from Influenster. It gives me an opportunity to sample different products each time and I can try it out and give my reviews on the blog for you guys! :)

1. Hawaiian Tropic Silk Hydration After Sun Lotion - I stick with my spray-on sunscreen for any type of protection from the sun especially as we get older. I don't usually use any after-sun lotions so this was a first time trying this out. It has a coconut papaya scent added to it which is very tropical. The lotion has a slight greasiness to it which you can't really tell. I'm just picky when it comes to these lotions. Overall, not bad and it keeps the skin hydrated! 

2. Covergirl LashBlast Bombshell Mascara - I love mascara! And so I was excited to give this one out from Covergirl a try. The top step is supposed to add volume to your lashes and the bottom step is to intensify. I thought it wasn't bad, it did give me some volume which is something I always look for in a mascara. I did have to use a lash curler but because that's just how my lashes are. Formula is not too wet and the wand helps make my lashes not clump up.

3. Sinful Colors Professional Nail Polish - I got yet another nail polish which I didn't really use. I am not a big into nail polish but the teal color that they had sent me was pretty! I am not familiar with the brand but have seen it around drugstores, the quality isn't bad for a $2 polish. 

 
4. Jamba Juice All Natural Smoothie Kit - I didn't get a chance to take a picture of the smoothie kit I chose after redeeming the coupon. I ended up getting the Green Fusion Fruit & Veggie kit. I always enjoy a good green juice and how can you go wrong with Jamba? I think it's a quick and simple way of getting in your fruit and veggies servings! Just drop the ingredients into a blender and add your juice (I prefer carrot juice) and blend and serve! It's that simple! I would go towards this if I didn't have any fresh ingredients for a smoothie laying around. 

5. First Aid Shot Therapy - When I first saw this in the box, I wasn't sure what the heck this was. After reading about it, I thought it was a pretty cool idea. A pain relief liquid aspirin 'shot' to help headaches/migraines if needed. I honestly have yet to try this product out still because I haven't had a headache bad enough to need this. But it's good to know there's an option.


Well hope you enjoy my mini reviews for each product! Let me know in the comments which product would you want to try out.

Happy Thursday!

How cute is this "You Can't Sit With Us" muscle tee?? I thought it was cool phrase when I received it in the mail from 9th & Elm. Pairing this tee with this shark tooth necklace that they also sent me, goes well together! Gives it an edgy kind of look to the whole outfit! I also paired it with these ripped shorts that AMI Clubwear had sent me and together it's a great summer outfit! Kobi is enjoying this! ;) 

9th & Elm is an online company whose concept is pretty similar to Hautelook to which you register on their website and they have independent designers showcase their handmade items. Their products gets displayed on 9th & Elm for a certain amount of days/time before their sale ends. Once their sale ends, you're unable to buy their products unless they go back onto display again! A cool concept! Every day I've receive an email telling me what's on sale and which designer has their products on the site. I can go in and check it out and also invite friends to join and see their products too! 

So I invite you to join! Also, you can check out their FacebookTwitter, and Pinterest!
You can earn free credits for every new customer that joins through you. :)

What do you think of 9th & Elm?

Skoah. skincare review [Bellevue]

Tuesday, July 22, 2014











Happy Tuesday!

It doesn't come as a surprise that I love taking good care of my skin. I own and have tried a lot of products and have a daytime and nighttime routine that I try to do almost every day. It's never too late to start taking care of your skin! So when I was asked by Skoah. to join their #skinsight team to try out one of their amazing facials, I was thrilled! They made an appointment and I went in for my fitskin facial at the Skoah. in Bellevue (a little outside of Seattle). 

Skoah. is a skincare company based in Canada which specializes in only skincare products and facial services that fits to each person's skin. There's a choice of a membership that you can join that is at a certain level depending on what your skin needs and how often do you want to use their services. From what I've gathered, majority of the time customers comes back every 2-3 weeks for their facials. and it lasts for either 45 or 75 minutes for each facial depending on what your skin needs. The fitskin facial that I experienced lasted for a good 45 minutes which included a neck/shoulder/arm/hand massage. Ahh.. And my skoah skincare trainer, Yisel helped me pinpoint my areas of dryness on the face and recommended certain products from the Skoah. line that will cater to my sensitive skin. Each layer she educated me on what it does and how it'll prevent my skin from breaking out. It was personable and all about you during your whole appointment. :)

To make it extra special, they leave 'bed treats' to each of their clients. Which is a nice little gift to take away after spending your time with them. After my facial, I felt so relaxed and my skin never glowed so much! All of their products are all created of their own blend of different plant extracts that helps calm and soothe the skin. You can feel each of their product just working it's magic on your face! It was great!

Also, shoutout to the Bellevue Krew and to the gals that reads my blog there. ^__^ Thank you!

Happy Thursday!

With the 90 degrees weather still lingering around here in Seattle. Dressing as light as possible is key to stay cool. This blush-toned sheer top from 10DollarMall.com is perfect for the sunny weather. Since it's so sheer, you can add a tank top or a bandeau just like how I did! Also, this necklace that I got from Oia Jules adds the perfect touch! My birthstone is amethyst so I was so excited to see this available. Something I'll be wearing all year-round. :)

Adore Me Unboxing

Tuesday, July 15, 2014











Swimsuit: c/o Adore Me (Here)


Happy Tuesday!

Do you remember back in May when I did this review post for Adore Me? Well a few days ago, I received a surprise package waiting on my doorstep! So I decided to do an unboxing reveal to see what they had sent! If you didn't know already, not only do they sell lingerie.. they also sell swimsuits too. Which is perfect because we're already in the middle of Summer! Our weather here has been in the low to mid 90s which is kinda unusual for us but nice that we get to spend it all outside. :) 

When I opened the box, right away I saw how nice their packaging was. The box was nicely labeled and a cute definition of 'Adore' was printed inside the box. Just overall a great representation of Adore Me. I opened up the pretty red tissue and this tropical swimsuit they had sent me was super cute! I absolutely love the print and the tassles hanging in front. And love how it has removable straps to make it halter-style or strapless. Definitely will be put into good use for my upcoming trips! If you want to learn more about how Adore Me works, click here! You basically get a choice of a monthly membership or pay-as-you-go service and their quality and style is pretty similar to VS. But better priced at a fraction of the price and you get the similar product! 

Thank you Adore Me for the wonderful surprise and gift! 

If you haven't yet, check out their website, Facebook, Twitter, and Pinterest.

Happy Tuesday!

Hope everyone has a great Fourth of July weekend! I'm continuing my summer outfits featuring pieces from 10DollarMall.com like this chiffon 'love' top. I really like how this simple printed tee can be paired with summer pieces like this fedora and perforated booties from Forever 21. Currently this top is on sale for only $5! A deal that's hard to beat in my opinion. ;)
