The Best Lingerie I’ve Tried! // Blogmas day 3

Hi friends!

I recently discovered the amazingness that is Adore Me.com. It is a subscription service but the amazing ting is, yoou don’t have to pay monthly. You can skip the month if you wnat. (I havn’t skipped anything yet haha) Victoria Secrect is where I would always get my intamates at, but for some reason, I started to feel bored of them. I mean, the quality is amazing and so were the styles but the prices are just… too much for my budget! And for my size, I take a long time to find a bra to fit me.

Adore Me.com has a ton of styles and not just lingere either! They have super cute pjs to choose from. The sizing is so on point. I feel so good wearing their products and I can spend so much time on their website just looking through all the styles. I probably have about 80 things added to my wishlist haha!

I love that fact that I now can feel, I don’t know ‘sexy’… when I usually don’t. I don’t like to spend a heaps amount of money on VS and when I find something I like it’s always too high for me. Don’t get me wrong through girls because VS is a great great store! I just fell in love with a new company and I’m okay with it!

I ordered another piece, a red bodysuit, oh my gosh it is so cute! I can’t wait to order more. I mean I am going to give all of my money to this place lol!

Have you tried Adore Me? What are your thoughts? Quick question, do you wear lingerie for yourself or your significant other? It is a little bit of both for me.

This can make a great gift for yourself this year, or if you are looking for a gift to give your hubby this is it too!

GNC Pro Box Unboxing!

Surprise box! I forgot all about my GNC box coming again! I checked the mail and BOOM I see a cute red box ready for me to open up. If you don’t know, GNC has a subscription box where they send you various health and wellness items for you to try! I loved my first one, and I am excited to try out my goodies in the second one.

Enyotics Health Focus Fast

It says that it is supposed to jumpstart your morning to make you more focused. It is a blend of vitamins, herbs, and botanicals. So, it should be safe. I really need to focus when it comes to school so I will be trying out these supplements!

Sunwarior Warrior Blend

This is a plant-based protein WITHOUT dairy! I am so happy about this! I want to try this after a good workout. That is my favorite time to drink protein shakes mmm.

  • Soy free
  • No sugar added
  • Gluten free
  • Dairy free
  • Vegan

This shake is packed with amino acids and the good thing about this is, you don’t have to blend this to drink it. You can just shake it up! That is one of the reasons why I am getting rid of all my Shakeology. I don’t have time to blend my shakes, clean the blender out before it gets that gross smell and yeah.

GNC B-12

I am on the fence on trying this simply because I don’t know much about B-12. Its description says that it is essential for energy production and carbohydrate metabolism, which I think I need. I don’t know just yet, I may be passing this one on to my husband.

Enlightened Crispy Marshmellow Treats

Mmmm I can’t wait to snack on this! I am like thinking what the heck about the flavor bein apple cinnamon but I mean I’m sure the original will be good if I don’t enjoy this one. It has 15g of protein! and I am hoping this curves my appitite for sweets and such. It is a decent sized bar for crying out loud haha!

OJO Quickly Dissolving Eye Care Crystals

I wear glasses and contacts so yes my eyes are not all that great. I am excited to try this little packet of nutrients to help them out! I’m sure that I will have to take this repeatedly to see results but I never heard f such a product it is so neat!

Resvitale Collagen Renew

This formula helps maintain skin elasticity and reduces the look of wrinkles. I think my skin is pretty good right now, I mean I know my mom would probably want to try this out so I think I may pass this on to her. I love using a face mask for my skin instead!

And then at the wee bottom of my box, I got a couple of coupons! Overall, I pretty much liked this box! I am not going to be using every sample in it but hey I did get some pretty good stuff and I am not disappointed. Thanks for reading! And if you love GNC or you love health and wellness, check out the GNC box.

I am like a little too obsessed with subscription boxes. I will admit this. THAT IS THE FIRST STEP. Haha okay, thanks, guys I’ll catch you next time.

The Jesus Box by Annabeth Cherie {15% off Code!}

Hi friends!

If you don’t know, I love my Christian related things. I have my Holy Bible and my Prayer Notebook in my hands just about every day. Somehow, I stumbled upon this awesome subscription box on the ‘Gram and I knew I just had to subscribe!

Growing up, my mom was always religious. I loved going to church and seeing my Pastor, Shirley Caeser singing and dancing on stage. Yes, MY Pastor was THE Shirley Caeser! But as time went on and I moved out, got married and started doing adult things, I haven’t been going to church and honestly, it is hard to join a new one when you were so attached to a different one ya know?

Anywho, I really feel like this box sort of got me more in touch with Jesus and my religion! I loved everything that came to me and I can;t wait to see what I get next!

Uninvited by Lysa TerKeurst

I started reading this book already and I am liking it so far. It is hard to put down. I really like the cover and the feel of this book too. It will be a pretty short read for me but I already have a couple quotes that stuck to me.

“Honesty wanted me to bring the core of who I believe I am and hold it up to the light of what’s really true.”

This book is worth reading, and I think it is the highlight of this months box!

Magnetic Bookmarks

HOW CUTE! I love love love these little bookmarks! I never invest in buying bookmarks, I use anything else available to me, haha but I am loving these. I love the scripture written out on both, it is a little reminder to you to have hope and trust.

SavedByGraceCO Chapstick

This is an all natural ingredient lip balm or chapstick if you want to call it. It smells like no other I have ever smelled! I have the lavender scented one and it is super moisturizing and the packaging is so cute. I have heard of SavedByGraceCo before, I know that they have t-shirts, mugs, and home decor for sale. check her out here

IMG_0361.JPG

Jesus Freak Bracelet

All I can say is this is an adorable addition to my jewelry collection. I say ‘cute’ and ‘adorable’ a lot don’t I? I already had others complement it and ask what does it say! It is nice to share my faith with others and the bracelet is really good quality. It has a sort of distressed look to it and I like the color red that it is.

The second I saw Annabeth’s box, I knew I wanted it! I recommend this as a gift for yourself or for someone else! You can subscribe to monthly subscriptions or just a one-time payment. She is so sweet and was kind enough to give me a discount code to share with you all!

You can use code RAE15 for 15% off for a subscription, or RAE10 for 10% off a one-time purchase! Check her out! You can order through her website here.

September Ipsy Bag

Better late than never, right?

Okay here is another Ipsy bag review for you! Seriously, if you are not subbed yet, you should! I get to try different types and brands of makeup I never knew of or got to try before. For only $10 a month! Plus, you get a cute makeup bag to go with it lol.

So this months theme was Boss Babe and it was a realllly cute black leather studded bag! I used it as an on-the-go makeup bag for my purse. (Would you like a blog post of what’s in it? Let me know!)

But, what I am really over the moon with is I received a ColourPop product. Yes, hold the phone. I have been wanting to try ColourPop forever but I didn’t know what to get first. Their lip products (from what Insta tells me) are AMAZING!

Adesse Organic Infused Nail Lacquer

IMG_0251.JPG

I got yet another nail polish color, but I’m not mad about it. The color is a very pretty grey (perfect for fall) that is a lot similar to the other grey I received in a previous ipsy bag. You don’t need to do too many coats for the color to show!

Manefit Beauty Planner Mask

IMG_0254.JPG

I have been obsessed with face mask recently! And I was=nted to try the Korean brand ones for a while. I was super stoked to see TWO of them in my bag! My face felt so soft and it was glowing, if you haven’t tried a face mask yet, do so!

ColourPop Lippie Stix

Eeek! ColourPop! I already boosted about my thoughts of ColourPop above but yes, I love this Lippie Stick. I mean, the color is right for me, it’s too bright for my liking but it goes on soooo smooth. oh my gosh. I’m ordering the same formula but in a different color.

I don’t know what the sahde is, if you are a ColourPop fanatic you are going to hate me lol. But I can’t find the name of it!

Beauty For Real Eyeliner in Jade

Now we have a stunning jewel-toned green eyeliner I am in love with. It makes my eyes look brighter and I look a little more refreshed after applying it! I always loved wearing green makeup with my skin tone, I think it complements it very well. This liner is so smooth and I have it in the shade 24K Gold too. No need to use a wing with this one, just line your upper lash liner and you can use a blending brush to blend it out and tada!

LUXIE 207 Medium Angled Shading Brush

Speaking of shading, I now a perfect angled shading brush in my collecition! I’m like, amazed at how it can transform my looks witht he ability to smoke out the browns and purples I use. Yes, I started venturing out with fall colors!

I can make a Fall Makeup Look blog post for you guys in the future!

Alright, so my bag was some kind of awesome last month. I’m so ready for my October bag! What did you girlies and guys get? Let me know!

June Ipsy Bag Unboxing

Let me tell you guys…

Re-subscribing to Ipsy was the best decision! I love just about everything in my bag, which makes me so excited for next months. The theme this month is Volume Up, it is about expressing yourself and being bold with your look. The hair and makeup choices the artist chose for the models are really inspiring, I’m definitely going try some of them out.


First off, the bag is super cute. It’s perfect for a little travel bag or a makeup bag for your purse. 

 I’m sort of new to the makeup world so I love trying out things I would of never purchased on my own.
NYX Whipped & Fouetté Lip & Cheek Color in Cocoa Bean



I wanted a brownish/nude color to try on my lips but the ones I always pick are too pink or too light for my skin. I love the fact that it is a 2-in-1 product. Oh and I love NYX, one of my favorite brands! The consistency is creamy and it blends well. I love how it is so simple and easy to use, it makes doing my makeup a lot faster. I know I will be purchasing the other colors in this collection at some point.


CHIA Curl by Trissola 5-in-1 Defining Curl Cream


This cream is claiming to deliver weightless, bouncy, healthy curls. I am ready to try this cream (I love curl creams!) but, I am forcing myself to save it. Since it is a travel sized package, I can use it when I go on vacay in two weeks! I did open it and it has a nice floral scent. I hope this does work, I’m afraid my hair is too thick to benefit from this small tube. I use ALOT of product, but hey we will see!

Trust Fund Beauty Nail Polish in Game Changer


Honestly, the color is too bright for me. I can describe this color like a sort of neon peach? I used three coats, (no top coat) and it did last a couple of days. It is a nice polish but the color is not for me.

Luna Eye Shadow in Jade


I really really like this color! I am a neutral eye kind of girl so I can never have too many. It is a very soft almost pale brown color with a pink undertone that shows up if you really pack the color onto your brush. I would use this a a nice base color for an everyday look.


Beauty For Real 24-7 Eyeliner in 24karat


Okay last but not least, eyeliner! I almost never go without my winged eyeliner like it’s a must for each makeup look. I feel like I don’t look complete with the wing. So I was so happy to find this GOLD eyeliner in my Ipsy bag. I have so many ideas on how to use it I am going crazy lol. The color is perfect and even the name is similar to a song I love witch is even better. The color catches the light and it glides on sooo smooth. I will be finding different shades from this company just because of that!


Thank you for reading! What did you get in your Ipsy bag? I would like to know!

I am so excited to try this out becauseeeee I have been wanting to try BCAAs after my workouts and I was lost on where to start. I’m even MORE excited because it is blue raspberry flavored lol.

IMG_8786

I am sort of iffy on this product. Since I work very early shifts at work I do want something that provides me with energy but on the other hand, I am afraid of energy drinks. Coffee, yes I love it. Soda, gotta have it. But Monsters and Red Bulls…? I can feel my heart beating so fast it freaks me out! It is stated on the packaging that the pill gives you a gentle jumpstart and you don’t crash afterward. I like that. The more I read up on it the more I feel comfortable trying it. I am absolutely sure someone in my house will give this a try whether it is me or my husband so it will not go to waste!

I’ve heard of the ONE bar but I am tempted to try them because I am loyal to my other two. The flavor I have is Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough, which I am super excited to try out!

“There’s just one gram of sugar in this chocolate chip cookie dough-flavored protein bar. Oh yeah! Plus, it’s the perfect companion for a summer hike or road trip.”

IMG_8787

I never considered taking a sleep aid before. God knows I don’t need ANYTHING to help me sleep haha. I always tired, I need the complete opposite! This won’t go to waste though, my hubby will most likely try it! The product implies that you wake up refreshed and it is a non-habit forming formula. It is an all natural veggie dietary supplement!

“Now every night has the potential for sweet dreams. Napz is designed with herbs traditionally associated with relaxation.”

  • Chamomile Extract, Passiflora Extract, Lemon Balm Extract, and Hibiscus Flower Extract 1,110mg

Weekly Vitamin Organizer and Men’s Fitness Magazine

For a bonus, GNC sent me a weekly vitamin organizer that I’m really happy about. I started taking Women’s Multi-Vitamins and Hair, Skin, and Nail vitamins. Now I can prepare them for the week!

I also like the double-sided magazine that has tips and recipes.

Overall I am very pleased with this subscription box! If you would like to know what products worked for me let me know in the comments! I will be sure to make a blog post once I try them out.
