July Favorites!

Hey ladies! Holy cow! I can't believe July is already over. I want to share some of my favorite things from the month of July-not all of them are beauty related!

1. Beauty Detangler- I got this product in my May Birchbox, but I really started using it in June. I love it! It makes my hair very soft and easy to comb through. It also helped cut down the time I spent blowdrying my hair. I also like the way it smells. I'm not really sure how to describe it though.

2. Suki Exfoliate- I got this in my June Birchbox and I have already used the whole sample! I'm pretty sure this is the first time I've actually finished a sample. I love the way this product smells. It smells just like lemons! After using it my face always feels soft and smooth. My nose had been really dry and flaky and I had blackheads around it. Once I started using this exfoliate it cleared right up. I didn't think to take pics before I started using it, but I wish I had so you could see the difference. I even got my husband hooked on this! We will definitely be purchasing the full-size product.

3. High-waist shorts- For the longest I hated high-waist shorts. I thought they were ugly and out of date. Now I love them. I bought 3 pairs alone in June and I'm looking to add to my collection! I like to pair them with either a simple v-neck, a flowy top, or a tub top that stops right at the waist band. They are so cute and stylish and anyone can pull them off!

4. Sno Cone- I haven't had a sno cone in years! So while at an art fair I couldn't resist the temptation and had to have one! It was coolly delicious!

5. Marshall's/ TJ Maxx- These two stores are definitely the places to be! You can find such great deals there. I found these Nail Laquers by Sation for only $2.99/piece ($8/piece retail)! I got a great deal on these body butters by Pacifica! And I found a Coach glasses case for only $6.99! Now you know that's a great deal!

6. BB Cream's- I've been on the hunt for the perfect BB Cream! I have 2 brands that I have tried out during both June and July that I am really enjoying. I would tell you about them, but you'll just have to wait for my BB Cream Mini-Series Part One to premiere!

7. Denim Vests- I love that Denim is back in! Denim vests are so easy to wear. They can easily complete any outfit. I love wearing mine with a maxi skirt and racer-back tee or with a skater dress and a cute pair of sandals! There's so much you can do with them that it's hard to go wrong!

Sunkissed Voxbox from Influenster

Hey everyone! So a couple of weeks ago I received an awesome box of goodies from Influenster! Influenster is a site where you can review different products and potentially receive free products to sample in the form of a Voxbox. I was one of the lucky people to receive the Sunkissed Voxbox! 

This is the first Voxbox that I've received and I'm so excited about it! I mean, who doesn't love free stuff? Before I begin the review I want to make it absolutely clear that all opinions expressed are my own. I have not received any type of payment for this review and I was given all of the products for free. Now on to the good stuff!

1. Olay Fresh Effects BB Cream: ($12.99)
When I first pulled this out of the box I was super excited about it because I've been looking for BB Creams to try for a mini-series I'm doing. However, upon reading the box and seeing that the shade was  light/medium I got a little disappointed. I put a drop on my hand and just knew it would be too light for me. After doing some further investigating on the product I found out that this is the darkest shade it comes in. And I saw a woman with a darker complexion than mine using it and she looked great so I decided to give it a try. Look out for a post with my full review of this product. For now, let's just say it's growing on me!

2. Goody Ouchless Ribbon Elastics: ($3.99-$4.99)
Before getting this box I had heard of these elastics but I didn't understand the hype behind them. In my mind, they're just hair ties. What's so special about them? I then had someone inform me that they're awesome because your hair doesn't get tangled in them. That's definitely a plus. I've been wearing them a bit now (I don't usually wear my hair up), but not enough to form a full opinion of them. I will write a full review of them at a later time. As of right now, I really like wearing them on my wrist!

3. Dr. Scholl's For Her: ($10.99)
This is actually the second pair that I have received for free! Right before I got a pair in this box I had received a pair from BzzAgent. These insoles are supposed to provide long-lasting comfort while wearing heels and to "shift pressure off the ball of your foot." I haven't really had a chance to try them out yet, but I will this week!

4. SinfulShine with Gel Tech: ($2.99)
This exclusive line is only available at Walgreens and comes in 32 different shades. Before this box I had heard of SinfulColors, but not SinfulShine. From what I can tell SinfulShine is a product of SinfulColors. The color I got is a pale blue called Alfresco. While I'm not a huge fan of the color, I will give it a try so I can tell you more about it. Depending on how well it works, I might be making my way to my nearest Walgreens!
