Influenster Daisy Voxbox | Unboxing & Review

Happy Monday and welcome to May! Today I am going to be sharing an unboxing and review of the Influenster Daisy voxbox! I have received several of these voxboxs in the past and this is another great one! I have received this box complimentary from Influenster for review purposes!

daisyvoxbox

Here is a quick look inside the Daisy Voxbox when you first open the box! You can see a few products, along with the informational card with a listing of the products inside the box. I LOVE that the shampoo and conditioner came inside plastic packaging because I have had instances in the past where products explode during the shipping process! Let's get into some more details about the products!

This boxes theme appears to be Spring related and doesn't have any specifics regarding the contents.

SkinnyPop Sea Salt Microwave Popcorn - $1.95 individual

I never even knew you could get a microwavable version of SkinnyPop, so it must be a new product!  It comes in a chemical-free pop box. I cant wait to have this for an afternoon snack!

Yes To Tomatoes Detoxifying Charcoal Paper Mask - $2.99

This face mask is formulated with charcoal to detoxify and clear pores. I have never tried a mask by the Yes To Tomatoes product line but am very intrigued about this mask because I've never seen a charcoal paper mask before!

Live Clean Coconut Milk Moisturizing Shampoo & Conditioner - $5.99 each

First of all, these smell amazing! They are unique eco-friendly formulas that combine Coconut Milk, Vitamins C, E, B5, and Rice protein to nourish and strengthen hair. I am eager to add these into my daily haircare routine! 

pads

Always Infinity - $6.99 for 24-36 ct

I personally enjoy use pads during that time of the month but have never tried the Infinity line of Always products. They are supposed to absorb 10x its weight and model to your body shape, so you can barely feel it. I look forward to trying this during my next cycle.

gummies

Nature's Bounty Probiotic Gummies - $19.99

This is probably the most exciting product in this voxbox, as least to me! I have struggled with tummy issues for many years, including IBS and sensitivity to lactose. This probiotic gummies  include friendly bacteria for your digestive system. They also feature a special probiotic strain that surrounds itself in protective layers to increase its viability - which is not found in many probiotics. 

So outside of a few additional coupons, that is everything that came in my Daisy Voxbox! It has a value of approx. $45.09 dollars, which is great considering I received all of these products for FREE.  I will definetly be putting all of these products to good use! Did you receive this voxbox? What did you think? I would love to know!

Hello January!

Guys, I cannot believe it is already 2017! This year I will be turning 27 and hope to make it a great year! Last month, I shared my goals for 2017, so today I am going to share my monthly goals for January! Let's get started!

  • Meal prep every week. This is something I want to get back into doing this month. I typically will prep my lunches for the work week every Sunday and need to start making this a habit again because it really helps keep me on track. If you want some meal prep ideas, leave a comment and I will share my favorite meals.
  • Workout 3-5 times a week. One of my goals mentioned in my post linked above, is to lose 15 pounds in 2017. I also want to be in shape for our family vacation this August, so I have 8 months to get toned up for the beach.  I fell off the fitness bandwagon in September but I want to get back on track this month.
  • No unnecessary purchases. One of my goals mentioned again is to pay off my credit card. In order to make this goal happen, I need to significantly cut back on my spending. I will need to stop buying planner stickers for a while and have enough kits to last me a few months.
  • Clean everyday. I want to do a quick clean everyday, whether that means doing the dishes or making the bed, I want to make this a habit.
  • Blog once a week. Yes, I know I am the most inconsistent blogger in the planet but I want to start working harder on my blog and youtube channel this year. I am going to create an editorial calendar and then start posting on a regular basis. 

What are your goals this month?

 

 

My favorite songs of 2016 | elizabethkathrynx

Major Lazer - Cold Water (feat. Justin Bieber & MØ)

We all make make mistakes and get lost but someone will always be there to pick us up from the battles we are fighting.

Fifth Harmony - Work from Home ft. Ty Dolla $ign

This song goes out to everyone who is just trying to get buy workin' 9 to 5

Mike Posner - I Took A Pill In Ibiza (Seeb Remix) (Explicit)

Flo Rida - My House

Don't let anybody come into your house without showing show respect

Adele - Hello

Another masterpiece by Adele

John Legend - Love Me Now

Hold your loved ones close and always tell them everyday you love them.

Selena Gomez - Kill Em With Kindness

This is one of the mantras I try to live by daily. If you are having a bad day, dealing with some rude customers, just kill em with kindness.

Katy Perry - Rise

This song by Katy Perry is one of the most powerful songs of 2016. We have to rise from the ashes and let the light fight the darkness in the world.

Ruth B - Lost Boy

This song is beautifully set to piano. There is something so haunting about this melody. It is based on Peter Pan but it has such a deeper meaning of feeling loneliness and finding escape through companionship and love.

OKAY! Now share with me YOUR favorite songs of 2016!!

My Top 5 Goals for 2017 | elizabethkathrynx

With almost being halfway through the last month of the year, I thought I would share my top goals for 2017! Let's get started!

1) Pay off my credit card: I have one credit card and have a small balance. It's nothing crazy but I would like to pay this off next year. My goal is to have this paid off by June 2017. Once I pay this card off, I am going to start aiming towards paying more towards my student loan. I owe less than $10,000 on that loan and want to pay it off as soon as I can!

2) Travel More: I love to travel and want to take more weekend trips! I want to visit places I have never been before, like Philadelphia or Chicago!

3) Invest in my Youtube channel/Blog: I want to invest in some new filming equipment including a new camera and maybe even a new personal computer/laptop to make some kickass videos and blog posts

4) Lose 15 pounds: I did a good job with my health & fitness in the first half of 2016 but then fell off the bandwagon in the second half of the year do to my full-time job. I have resubscribed to BeachBody On Demand and want to make it a habit to work out 5-6 times a week and get back on track with my meal planning.

5) Home improvements: Ever since my husband and I bought our house in March, there have been some furniture upgrades I have wanted to make. I want to buy a new TV for the living room and upgrade the TV stand and coffee table. I foresee a trip to Ikea in the future. I also want to finally print some of our beautiful wedding pictures and hang them in our home. We would also like to replace the dining room set and couch but we aren't sure when those purchases will occur.

What are your goals for 2017?
