Brand Ambassador

Wanderlust by Bikini.com Unboxing

So, this is something that we don't typically do, but in celebration of our 31-Day Video Challenge, we decided to throw it all out there!

I first learned of the Wanderlust Box by Bikini.com last year when they asked me to be an Ambassador. It always looked awesome, but every time I saw a box I wanted, it was sold out... SO, I jumped on the opportunity to purchase the Maldives Summer 2018 box!

This box is full of goodies that are perfect for the summer! Watch my unboxing below to see my response of what is inside!

You can find the Wanderlust box HERE

So to Recap the products:

Breakups to Makeups Tote: $10

Parabo Press Free Prints: $10

Deo Wipes Intimate: $15

HELLO Charcoal Toothpaste: $6

Chella's Eyebrow Cream and Highlighter: $46

Kocostar Lip Mask: $38

Sparkle Skin Boost Powder: $19.50

Earth Harbor Rose Ruby Face Mist: $20

YHF LA Jetset Sunnies: $60

Winky Lux Lipgloss: $13

Rose & Royce Scrunchie Set: $12

Mermaid Vibes Perfume: $11.95

*I did forget about the Winky Lux Coffee Bronzer in the video. I didn't even see it in the box until Cullen started filming the products! But it is valued at $30 - so that helps all the totals add up to $291.44 ;)

The only disappointment, is the sunnies don't really fit my face, but since the frames are pretty thin, I am going to try to manipulate that a little.. They are too great not to wear!

The unboxing was much more fun than I thought it would be, so I may be doing more of those in the future! If you have any suggestions of subscription boxes I should try, leave me a comment!

Life Update

Hi All!

It has been a few weeks since our last post, and I wanted to let everyone know what was going on...

We were minding our own business and enjoying our time with my parents in Longboat Key, FL the week of Labor Day when we got word that Hurricane Irma was headed straight for our home. We cut the week short, packed a few bags, (and Oly bear!)  and drove up to Pennsylvania where my parents live to wait out the storm. You can view our first vlog episode here!

We figured we would only be there a few days, but we ended up staying an entire week. We knew our apartment complex didn't have power and gas was very scarce. So we figured we would turn this into an unplanned "relaxing" vacation. We took Oly hiking in the mountains, visited a beautiful (and cold) waterfall, and spent some more quality time with my family.

Walking Olyvia by the Youghiogheny River

Walking Olyvia by the Youghiogheny River

By Tuesday, we had received a text message from Royal Caribbean stating that our cruise for that weekend had been canceled. They were going to be using the Majesty of the Seas for Humanitarian efforts in the Caribbean. Can't be mad about that! Sure we were disappointed, as we had been looking forward to this getaway since the beginning of the year, but we can always reschedule for something even better. :) 

Anyways, when we returned home, everything was luckily undamaged, but we unfortunately still didn't have any power. That kind of threw off my plans for getting our lives back together a little bit before flying out to Cancun for our stay at the Thompson Playa del Carmen, but nonetheless, we did get everything settled during that hectic week and took off again!

We just returned from Mexico and had the BEST time. I will be writing an entirely different post on that soon!

ANYWHOOO ... I wanted to catch you all up since it looks like we have been slacking lately and did want to let you know that we were not able to take our trip to the Bahamas as scheduled. We are now back on track and ready for our next adventure!

 

Cheers!

Shopping for Playa del Carmen

If you haven’t read our recent blog post, we have some exciting news! We are flying to Playa del Carmen to spend a weekend at the Thompson Resort! Since we live in Florida, you would think I would have the perfect wardrobe for this trip… well, you would be wrong. I have A LOT of workout clothes and some business casual stuff, but not enough sundresses and rompers to survive a weekend in Riviera Mexico! I did plan on just bringing my current bikini collection, but I couldn't resist the sales from bikini.com. ;) 

I went over to lulus.com to do my shopping. With my busy schedule, sometimes it is so hard to get out and physically go into a store. And besides, have you seen lulus clothes?! ADORABLE! And absolutely perfect for my lifestyle. I am not sure EXACTLY what we will doing while we are there, so I need to make sure I cover all my bases. We are only going to be gone for 3 days, but I will most likely need at least 3 outfits/day... girls, you understand. You never know what you are going to need and you don’t want all of your IG photos in the same outfit!

Beach TowelS

Guys, I haven’t purchased a beach towel in years… And I think the last time I did it was because we were on our way to the beach and accidentally left ours at home. I thought this would be the perfect time for a new one. I purchased this beautiful Turkish Cotton towel and I cannot wait to try it out. There are quite a few Turkish Cotton beach towels on the market, but I love Sand Cloud because of their mission to save the ocean… and their towels are adorable and super affordable!
