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.

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!

How To Get Free Samples // PinchMe Box Review

Eeeek!!

I’ve been waiting so long to get my PinchMe box in the mail! If you haven’t heard of it, PinchMe is a website that send you free samples in the mail to try out and review. You do a little questionnaire and the company decides if you are a right fit for them to send you samples! It is free shipping as well so it really is just free samples! In return you just have to review the products on their website.

My good friend introduced me to this so I want to thank her! At first, I wasn’t eligible to be sent anything because I didn’t fit the criteria of the products being giving out that month. BUT I got an email the month after and was able to pick some out!

First, I got a $30 Gift Card for my first box (and free shipping) to HelloFresh.com! I wanted to try Hello Fresh for a while. Now that I have a gift card I am going to subscribing soon!

I also got a Shutterfly coupon for a free 8×8 Photo Book! I have so many ideas for it.

As for the products, I was sent Orbit White Sugar Free Peppermint Gum. The package had two pieces, one for me and one for my husband. I am chewing it as we speak and oh my goodness it is so minty! (In a good way) it is soft to bite into and the flavor is lasting a good while. I’m not much of a gum chewer as my husband is but he seems to like it just as much.

Next was the Biore Baking Soda Acne Scrub now I haven’t tried it out yet, but I heard good things about this scrub. It smells amazing and I really need something exfoliating for my skin. I have one breakout that just won’t go away. I’m like so over it!

Lastly, I was sent Vick’s ZzzQuil Sleeping Aid. I have to give this a try because sometimes I take forever to fall asleep and I end up waking up super tired and not wanting to get out of bed for work. Hopefully, by taking this I can sleep instantly and feel refreshed when I wake up.

Overall, I am excited to see what next month brings for samples!

August ipsy Bag Unboxing! // TheAirforceSweetheart

It’s that time again! This month, oh my gosh I think I hit the jackpot. One, the bag is so adorable! It says “Peace Love Lipstick” and I love the orange ombre color!

The theme for this month is Good Vibes. Basically, it’s just promoting happiness and peace with a little hippie vibe.

Marc Anthony Strictly CURLS Curl Envy Perfect Curl Cream

DSCN1042

I love getting hair products in my bag. I am a product junkie and I buy more than I need. I just feel like I need to try every single type and brand out there. I heard of this product before, all good things. I am *so* excited to try it! Right now I am using the Eco Styler Gel and Coconut Curls conditioner for styling. (Yes I use a conditioner as a leave in!)

sundays Nail Polish in No.28

DSCN1043.JPG

The color I was sent reminds me a lot of fall. I think this is the perfect color to transition between the two seasons! I really like the fact that the packaging is so simple and minimalistic. Also, the polish is cruelty and toxin free!

Hey Honey Come Clean Propolis & Mineral Facial Scrub

DSCN1045.JPG

I always seem to get face scrubs in my bag too. Usually, I give them to my husband since he has super oily skin and is prone to breakouts more than I am. I have sensitive skin, so I don’t use too many different scrubs.

But, I do like the smell of this and the fact that it exfoliates. I may be using this one for myself this month!

theBalm Cosmetics theBalm Voyage Vol.2 Eyeshadow in Willkommen

DSCN1046.JPG

I’ve been wanting to try theBalm Cosmetics for a while now! I am in love with the vintage packaging they have! I heard that the eyeshadows are super pigmented. Judging from this shade I was sent I guarantee that I will be purchasing others from this brand!

The color Willkommen is a simple nude shimmer shade. Which is exactly what I like! Sorry, it took me a long while to get a photo of the swatch and well, this is what I got haha. It has a nice shimmer that catches the light.

Make Up For Ever Excessive Lash Arresting Volume MascaraDSCN1053.JPG

Make Up For Ever is another brand I wanted to try! I have a favorite mascara already, two actually but I am excited to try this one. The fact that is is so tiny makes it perfect for travel. Since I do wear glasses, I look for mascaras that great volume and drama to my lashes so they can be seen behind my lens.

DSCN1054.JPG

Well, that is what I got this month! What did you get? I am the most excited to use the curl cream!

This box comes 3x a year and it only cost $39.99. PLUS you get reward points, free shipping on GNC.com, and much much more.

IMG_8783

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.

Since this is an unboxing I cannot officially review each product so I’m just going to give you all the stats. “Built by science. Elevated through innovation. Elevate the way you refuel with these blue raspberry lemonade-flavored BCAAs.”

ORB Smooth Energy Complex

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!

“Greet your day with a gentle jumpstart. This complex formulated with ingredients that support a relaxed-yet alert- mental state.

Oh Yeah ONE Bar

IMG_8800.JPG

If you know me, you know I love protein bars. They are my source of breakfast every morning- along with a protein shake! My favorite bars are the LARABAR and The Complete Cookie. 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.”

  • Calories 210
  • Total Carbohydrates 24g
  • Sugar 1g

  • Protein 21g

Dymatize ISO100 Whey Protein Isolate

IMG_8785

Yeeeeeeeessssss I love protein shakes! Thank you, GNC so much lol! I’m so ready to try this because I hear whey isolate is a lot better than regular whey protein. Protein shakes are my thing y’all like, they are my savior lol.

Napz Short-Term Sleep Aid

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.
