Influenster Revive VoxBox!

I know I am posting at an odd day of the week, but I just needed to let you all know that I received a new Influenster VoxBox!!

I love these things, they are so much fun!  It's better than a subscription because you don't have to pay, and the products and timing are a COMPLETE surprise!  It's like a mini Christmas!  If you would like to try out this service where they send you products to review, you can sign up here: 

This was an end of Summer box all centered around fitness, and I am even surprised at how much I liked it!

The first (and largest) thing in the box was this Body Tech shaker bottle... Now, I have never actually owned or used one of these and I am kind of confused honestly!  From what I can tell, you pour water or a liquid of your choice into the cup, along with a protein powder or protein shake mix, and then shake until it is combined.  I generally mix my protein powder into things, and the thought of it alone with water sounds kind of gross to me... But my cousin is a body builder so my guess is that he could use something like this better than me!

In this box I also received three different types of protein powder from The Vitamin Shoppe.  I think the first one, Next Step, is supposed to be a full on protein shake to go with the bottle instead of just a stand alone powder, and it is Cookies and Cream flavor!  I will probably use this as an addition to smoothies instead of a stand alone shake, so I'm still pretty happy! It contains 14 grams of protein in the full packet.

The second protein powder from The Vitamin Shoppe is the Whey Tech Pro 24 protein powder in Strawberries and Cream flavor.  This packet contains 24 grams of protein!  I will also use this in my smoothies, I just haven't had the chance to as of yet.

The third protein powder from The Vitamin Shoppe is a Plant Protein powder in the flavor vanilla.  This one interested me the most, so I broke into it first when making my smoothies.  It contains 19 grams of protein in the entire packet, and I use about a teaspoon per smoothie.  The flavor of this protein powder is absolutely amazing!

  I make Peanut Butter and Jelly shakes, and the vanilla along with it just makes them so much sweeter without adding a ton of sugar.  I love it!
They look gross, but I promise these smoothies are great, let me know if you'd like to see a recipe!

To keep in line with the organic, healthy feel of everything they sent a sample packet of the Shea Moisture Fruit Infusion Coconut Water Weightless Shampoo and Creme Rinse.  These have a very pleasant and warm scent, but it is in no way overpowering.  It lather nicely, ran through my hair smoothly, and my hair looked great afterwords!  I would definitely consider buying these!  As a side note, I also really enjoyed how they made the sample packet of the "Creme Rinse" twice as big as the shampoo packet.  I can usually get two uses out of shampoo samples, but barely one from the conditioner... So very nice touch! 

I guess these are a healthy option for a "cookie"?  The SnackWells Biscuit Thins in the flavor French Vanilla Latte weren't my favorite, but they weren't bad!  There are four in a pack, and they also come in the flavors Carmel Macchiato and Dark Chocolate Mocha.  Their description states that they are a good source of protein and fiber, with 25 grams of whole grains, and they are made with real coffee!

I had these this morning with a Creme Brûlée Latte, and while they weren't bad, they weren't my favorite either.  Much more like a cracker than a cookie.   

Finally I was sent a sample box with three K-cups: Hill Bros Chock Full o'Nuts, and Kauai Coffee.  What makes these K-cups special and ties them in with the box is that the cups are biodegradable!  I think that is pretty awesome that companies are finally making this happen with so many people using a Keurig on a daily basis.  I do not have access to a Keurig here at college, so I gave them to my mom to try out and she said she really enjoyed them!  Even though I didn't get to consume these I am super excited about the concept, and that the companies are getting their name out!

This was such a fun and unique box, and I am so excited I got to be a part of it!  Thank you Influenster, and once again, if you'd like to be part of some their future campaigns you can sign up here: 
Disclosure, I received this products for free from Influenster for testing purposes, but all opinions are my own.

College Countdown: Dorm Tour

I think I finally got my side of my dorm to look how I want it to this year, and I am absolutely thrilled with it!

I chose the colors yellow and grey, which isn't what I'd usually pick, but I've been thrilled with the way it turned out!  I'm not going to mention where every little thing is from, if you want more information on that you can check out my Dorm HaulI posted earlier this week, but I will do my best to hit he highlights!
First I will start off with my desk area.  From right to left I keep my makeup in the drawers I DIYed, my makeup mirror from Amazon, my desk organizer filled with legitimate desk things, as well as more makeup and makeup brushes, my tea station with my chip mug and honey, my textbooks, and finally my sticky notes and Ray Bans!
The wall above my desk I turned into sort of a gallery wall!  It has been a process to get all of this up, because anything even semi heavy continues to fall down!  From top to bottom: I picked up the canvases at a bi…

My Petal Club

A new box!  And a PERIOD subscription box at that!  I love finding new boxes to try out, especially when they are this affordable!  This box is normally $6.99 per month, but if you use the discount code "SUMMER" on, this box will be only $3.50!  And let's be honest, one box of pads/tampons is usually more expensive than that, so why not give it a try??

So this box primarily consists of just the period products with very few extras.  This isn't one of the present, feel-good kind of boxes, it just provides you with the necessary products to get through the month, at an affordable price.
Step One The first thing you do on their website is choose the combination of products you will need.  Be warned, you aren't given as much of a selection if you order through Cratejoy like I did.  It worked totally fine and I still got the products I needed, but I like choice!  So I suggest going straight through their website.  You are going to get 30 products total…

Glossybox: August (A Cautionary Tale)

So let's talk about Glossybox...  Originally I subscribed when they had a special, three months for $30.  I thought it would be a cheaper way to try something new and see how I liked it, and maybe spice up my content.  I was sadly disappointed.  I wouldn't reccomend Glossybox to anybody.  My subscription was supposed to start in July, but that box never came.  I contacted them about it, and it took a month to get a reply simply saying they would look into it and get back to me the next day.  I waited another week before emailing them again, and at this point I was very upset.  After demanding a reply, explanation, and my box which I had paid for, lo and behold I finally received a tracking number, as well as 100 very useless "Glossydots."   I began to understand that this is not an individual problem and there were many people who didn't receive their boxes and were not getting a reply from their customer service department.  Yet they didn't seem to care.
