    Influenster Sprout VoxBox | Quick Reviews

    I recently received my second VoxBox from Influenster*, a website for bloggers and social media users. Basically you sign up for the site (free to anyone, not just bloggers and YouTubers) and based on your social media impact and preferences, the company sends you different products to try. I received my first one of these boxes around Christmas, shortly after I signed up for the site. In that box I received mostly makeup and a few other odds and ends. I’m happy to report that this time around I received products geared more towards a healthy lifestyle, fitness, and a few skin care items. I posted an update a while back explaining…

    Spring Beauty Favorites | April 2016

    Friday Favorites | 3.18.16

Honestly, I didn’t really have a lot of makeup or fitness loves last week since I slept as much as I could. Most of my favorites this week are makeup – nothing new on the fitness front to report.

    Favorites | February 2016

    The end of February brings a whole new world for me. March begins my cut and new fitness program. It’s also means that the end of winter is (nearly) upon us. I’m so excited to get outside again for my runs and even do some kettlebell workouts in the garage. In March I’m going to work hard at my new fitness routine including my meal prepping. This weekend includes a trip to Costco to stock up on everything I’ll need for the next few weeks. FITNESS Two fitness favorites for the month of February, the first is my new Blender Bottle GoStak that’s been perfect for carrying snacks and supplements to…
