Happy Tuesday ! I’m praying I have some foodies in my little corner of the internet, because todays post is a little bit different! Today I’m doing a Influenster Tasty VoxBox unboxing! I’m sure there are posts on the internet about Influenster already so I won’t bore you too much with the details.
Influenster, is a website (and now an app) where you sign up, review different products and get the chance to be sent some products for free to review! This is my second box and I still haven’t got the site figured out. I signed up in the hopes of being sent some makeup boxes, but so far I’ve received a infant box and this box I’m unboxing today, the Tasty box.
The product were very well packaged when shipped so that was definitely awesome! It had many sheets of bubble wrap protecting everything inside.
Inside, I had received a bottle of Franks red hot hot sauce, Frenches crispy fried onions, a sample of Splenda natural sugar substitute, a sample of Yogi tea, Go Lean Coca powder and a few coupons and a cookie recipe!
The items that caught my attention the most was the tea of course and the cocoa powder!
I must say, when I heard I was getting the “tasty” VoxBox this wasn’t what I was thinking at all. But I’m thankful for the opportunity nonetheless! I hope you enjoyed this brief unboxing!
*Disclaimer*”I received these products complimentary from Influenster for testing purposes.”
Thank you so much for viewing! xx
Hey my loves! So last Sunday I came across an Instagram page for a company called Symphony Beauty. They specialize in makeup remover wipes and face masks!
I’ve tried their cucumber makeup wipes in a past Ipsy bag and fell in love! They were very thick and hydrating and removed a full face of makeup with only one wipe!

I saw they were having a promotion where if you sign up for their email list, they will send you a free sheet mask and I couldn’t pass it up! I signed up that Sunday and received an email saying it had been shipped the very next day! Shipping was super fast! Which is always a plus in my book!
They sent me the vitamin C sheet mask. I’ve only tried one other sheet mask in the past, so I was excited to see how they compared! In the envelope they sent my mask as well as their business card with all of their social media handles on it.
The mask packaging itself was very cute and informative. Letting you know exactly what was in it, the purpose of the mask as well as instructions on how to apply and how long.
I followed all of the instructions on the packaging (while indulging in a little Netflix) and waited for results! When I put the mask on my face it felt very hydrating. It was a very relaxing experience!
(Who doesn’t love a little snapchat flower crown)
When I removed the mask my skin felt very soft and smooth. Id definitely recommend this mask to someone like me with oily/combination skin! I’ll definitely be checking out the other face masks on this website and I’ll let you know how I like them!

I’m not a size 3, I don’t own a MacBook, I’m pretty disorganized and I have NO marble tables or counter tops in my house.
I am not your average blogger. When I had my original blog I was very discouraged. Seeing other peoples pretty blogs with pictures with marble backgrounds or fancy vanities always made my heart drop. “No one will read your blog.” I had myself convinced. I would look on Instagram for inspiration only to see pretty, thin, blonde women in fancy outfits living what seemed to be perfect lives.
This time around I didn’t look at blogging as a competition as I had in the past. We are all together. I’ve learned in the blogging community no matter your appearance or your at home life you are accepted. I love the blogging community for that very reason! It’s okay to not have the most expensive things. Make use of what you do have and flaunt it!
Your blog is as successful as YOU make it! As long as you’re proud of your posts and content that’s what’s important!
I’ve learned to make use of the space I have to take pretty decent photos and use products I already have to make posts! I love it! I don’t feel pressure to be the standard definition of perfect, because I am just the way I am! So if you’re feeling discouraged about entering the blogging community, don’t! There are so many accepting people! People who care about you and your character and personality above all things!
Thanks for viewing!
Trust Me I know what you’re thinking…
Another “OMG I LOVE KYLIE COSMETICS” post. But no, it’s not that kind of post at all. The company has been around for a while now, so im sure you’ve heard all the positives or horror stories that surround the brand. I’m going to give you my experience and then I’m going to let you know which Lipkits I’ve been loving for this Fall season so far!
Honestly when I first heard that Kylie was coming out with her own cosmetics brand i was skeptical. “Will it be any good?” “Will it just be a money thing for her?” “Will she actually care about what us, essentially her fans want?” I made my first order and was able to get True Brown K, Dolce K and Candy K. Of course it was like a Hunger Games sequel to get them because they were sold out so fast but with the help of my fiance we did it! Shipping did not take long at all i believe i had them within a week or so. My first time swatching them and really seeing the colors and the formula consistency I was floored. The pigment was amazing, they weren’t patchy or sheer at all which I wasnt expecting! Now the con they are a bit drying. I do recommend doing a lip scrub before and putting on some kind of lip balm, and also doing a lipscrub when you take the product off. I then placed another order on one of her restock days for 22,Dead of Knight, her metal matte set as well as her original gloss set which included the shades Like, Literally and So Cute. I was in Kylie Cosmetics heaven! Till I really stopped purchasing every time she dropped something new and thought about it. Most of her more recent shades were dupeable, and for the price it totally wasnt worth it. I was paying $30+ for lipkits when i found similar shades at Colourpop for $6. It was hard for me to give up my Kylie Cosmetics addiction, but it had to be done. I just could no longer justify paying that much for a mediocre liquid lipstick when there were brands that were better and more affordable. Now, im in no way shape or form bashing the company. I love all of Kylies products. But being honest, they really weren’t worth the money. It got better now that you can buy them in singles, honestly that made me want to purchase again. But my lippie collection needs to slow down its growth to make way for my growing eyeshadow pallet collection!
Now for the pros and cons
Like I said before, a CON is how drying they are. I’ve never experienced a formula as dry as the Kylie Lipkit. Another CON is the price. Recently the price point has been way better with the new KOKO Kollection coming in at $40 instead of $60. But the Kyshadow pallet coming in at $42 is cardboard with no mirror, I just couldn’t justify the purchase!
Moving on to the PROS, the scent is so HEAVENLY! When you first open a Kylie liquid lipstick you smell vanilla. ITS ABSOLUTLY AMAZING! Second, is the quality of the product they dry fully matte unlike come companies whose formula says matte but you still have a sheen. They also are fully opaque which I love , especially when it comes to darker colors.
What Kylie Lipkits I’m Loving for Fall
