InfluenceHer Holiday Essentials – My Kit Has Arrived!

It’s an exciting day… my InfluenceHer Holiday Essentials Kit arrived in the mail! A big thank you to Her Campus and the InfluenceHer Collective for choosing me to receive this years holiday kit! I am so excited to dig into all the goodies and treats! It is always a blessing to get these little packages in the mail. I received this kit at no cost in order to try out all these fun products!

There was SO much good stuff packed into the package! Seriously, this might have been the best little packages I’ve gotten in a long time. I am really thankful that they were SO generous!

So.. Let’s get to whats inside!

The InfluenceHer Holiday Essentials Kit

So much goodness!

So much packed into one great package! This seasons pack had products from Alba Botanica, the Her Campus shop, Steripod, Luna, Almay, Otterbox and Rent the Runway! I am SO excited to try it all out!

Luna bars are one of my FAVORITE snacks when I’m not on Keto! They’re seriously some of the most delicious easy snacks, and a great breakfast on the go. I am in love with the chocolate peppermint stick flavor (I’ve loved this one since my freshman year of college!) and I’m so excited to try out the mint chocolate chip flavor. Yes. Please.

These goodies from Steripod are so cute! I needed these for travel and my travel beauty bag, plus the holographic bag they sent the goodies in is perfection! I am so pumped to try these out and report back (probably on my Instagram!).

Okay. So the next bunch of products are from Alba Botanica! Let me say this; wow. I am ALREADY in love with the facial cleanser (it smells like dole whips!) and the detox scrub is amazing! I can’t wait to try out everything else too, because I am seriously so impressed. I’m in love.

Almay also sent me this lipstick in the shade Girl Boss! I haven’t had a chance to try this out yet (again, keep an eye on my Instagram!) but the packaging is really cute. I’m always down for a new lipstick formula or shade!

I’m also super excited to try out Rent the Runway! I’m so excited to get some cute looks to wear in New York City after Christmas, so yet again, check instagram! I’ve always been curious, so I’m excited to try them out!

I love mugs more than the average person that doesn’t drink coffee. They’re good for holding just about anything and everything you could need, so I was pumped to see that Her Campus sent out a mug from their store! Seriously, it’s the cutest thing I’ve ever seen.

The last item in the kit was a phone case from Otterbox! I have been DYING for this little mermaid Disney case, so getting to try it out has been so lovely. There is a fine glitter in the case that adds a nice little bit of shimmer, and like other Otterbox cases, it protects my phone from drops! Love love love!

Again, a big thank you to the InfluenceHer Collective for sending all of these lovely treats my way! I can’t wait to report back on how everything is going!

Week Two of Keto - Diet Update

Week Two of Keto – Diet Updates & Weight Loss

Week two of keto is in the books! Time to celebrate because I’m actually full on falling in love with this diet. How? Why? I honestly have no clue.

I started keto two weeks ago because I knew that I needed a change in my life, and it was about time. I cheated all my prior diets, and I knew that it was time to get strict and make a change. If I didn’t I’d continue to feel sorry for myself, and that was getting me nowhere fast. Keto had been floating around my mind for a while, but I was honestly scared to start. It seemed extreme, difficult, and honestly, I thought it would be impossible for me. But then I tried it, and woah.

First Week of Keto

First Week of Keto – Real Talk Experiences

In case you live under a rock, keto is one of the bigger trends right now for weight loss, and is also on the slightly controversial side. Keto focuses in on eating carbs in very small amounts, while ramping up consumption of fats and proteins in order to switch your body into burning fat for energy. I decided about a week ago to dip my toes in myself to see what happened and if it was all they claimed it to be. I’d like to journal my feelings weekly, so here is my first week of keto.

Doctor Mercy Cosplay

Doctor Mercy Cosplay – Overwatch on a Budget

Last week was one for the books with me! I attempted my first real cosplay, and pulled it all together in under two weeks. Whaattt? Yeah. I was exhausted, feeling gross, but at the end of the week, everything came together beautifully and was SO worth it! For baby’s first con, I decided to go with a doctor Mercy cosplay, because, well, I am wholeheartedly obsessed with that lady. The stress was worth it, and it all pulled together really nicely. So, here’s how it all pulled together!
