Luxury Scent Box Perfume Subscription Unboxing and Review+ COUPON CODE!

Hi Guys!

Today I have an exciting unboxing of a new Monthly Fragrance subscription service that I think you all will enjoy! Check out my Unboxing and review video below as well as more information about Luxury Scent box with coupon code! Enjoy!



Luxury Scent Box is a monthly Fragrance service that delivers a .30oz or 9ml bottle of perfume or cologne right to your door every month! These scents are 100% authentic designer fragrances and are available in Male and Female scents. Read until the end to find out how you can get your 1st months box for only $10!


Once you sign up, they ask you to fill out a scent profile so they can recommend fragrances that you might like. You don’t have to choose any of these and can freely search on your own what scent you want to try next. One of the features I really like is the Calendar. This allows you to pick the fragrance you are getting each month. This is great for a person like me who likes to change up my scent with each season/holiday. I like to wear more light clean scents in the spring, fruity in the summer, warm and vanilla in the fall, and musky and sultry in the winter. I love the Luxury Scent box allows me to try a new fragrance every month at a low price!


My top 3 fragrances I want to try are Chloe by Chloe, Prada Candy, and Marc Jacobs Daisy which are all available from Luxury Scent Box.


Luxury Scent Box is $15 + FREE SHIPPING! You can get $5 off your first month making it only $10 with code “CHANNINGCOUTURE5” HERE. With your first box you get a colored case to hold your scent that is easy to travel with and each new fragrance pops easily into it. All you have to do is twist up and the scent is ready to use so you never have to worry about the fragrance accidentally spraying in your bag, pocket, suitcase, etc. Every quarter they also send you a new seasonally colored case to switch out.


Another great thing about this box is it is a month to month service so you can cancel at any time! This is perfect if you want to just try out 1 fragrance or even give the box as a gift! I LOVE getting people subscription boxes as gifts whether it is for 1 month, 3 months, 6 months, or 12 months!


I HIGHLY recommend giving this box a try. If you don’t want to get a fragrance every month just use my code and try one for $10! You can always sign up for another box when that fragrance runs out. Getting these fragrances is a STEAL and you will love trying out a new one every month I PROMISE! Don’t forget to use code “CHANNINGCOUTURE5” for $5 off your first month HERE.  Enjoy!

Killer Body Fitness Unboxing+ Work out Tips and Tricks!

Hey guys!

Recently I have gotten back into fitness. I grew up playing sports and dancing and have always been naturally thin. I also always had a job where I would do display work and constantly be on my feet, walking up and down ladders, and carrying heavy shelving. Last year I got my first desk job. I noticed after about 6 months that my muscle tone was decreasing and I gained about 7 pounds.


This made me realize that I needed to take matters into my own hands and focus on being happy, healthy and getting exercise in at least 2-3 times a week. I also don’t eat the healthiest so I wanted to change up my diet a bit. I can’t do that drastically as I am a very picky eater but I am trying harder to make better choices.


Check out my unboxing video below of the Killer Body Box. It is $19-$50 a month depending on what option you choose and is like a personal trainer in a box! Below my video are my tips and tricks on how I got back into fitness and what I like to do and other healthy living tricks.



 

Fitness:

My husband has always had a gym membership and goes regularly. I admire him for his perseverance and also his rock hard abs. I am more of a group sport or fitness type of person where I enjoy working out with others so I stay on track and it doesn’t feel like a chore. The apartment where I live has a new gym that has treadmills, ellipticals and weights. Since I don’t pay a membership to this gym I never really went to it. So in order to kick my butt into gear I went to my husband’s gym and signed up for a year long membership that way I pretty much had to go so I wouldn’t be wasting money. At first I would just go with the hubby and either lift weights or go on the elliptical. I would get anxiety being by myself and or worrying I was bothering my hubby so I didn’t really enjoy it. I then realized my gym had a ton of classes I could attend so I went to a spinning class and now I am hooked!



I do spinning 1-2 times a week and a weight lifting class another day. I HIGHLY recommend going to classes especially with a friend. Classes are great because there are people from all ages and all skill levels in them so you won’t feel out of place. I also recommend going with a friend so you can keep each other motivated and accountable. Spinning is a great class for everyone because it is low impact but great for your cardiovascular system. I have a breathing disorder that developed in high school that doesn’t allow me to run or do more intense cardio but spinning provides the burn I am looking for without making me out of breath. I love it!


I also recommend not pushing yourself until you are used to a workout. I did this with my weight class by starting out with smaller weights and building up over time. If you wear yourself out in the first 10 min of your class you aren’t going to want to continue or come back. If you start small and build up you will be able to see how strong you are getting overtime.


My husband and I also like to go on “adventures.” When it is warm we hike, play soccer, swim, and just walk around our neighborhood. This is a great way to get fresh air and your steps in without thinking that you are working out.


Since I have a desk job now I try to get as many steps in as possible. One thing I do is bring a water cup to work and try to drink the whole thing every 1-2 hours. I then walk to the fountain to fill it up and since I am drinking a lot of water I have to walk to the bathroom more often. This also helps clear my head of work I am doing that can get stressful if you are sitting and staring at it too long.


I also like to do some quick exercises in the bathroom to increase my metabolism and get my blood pumping. I try to do 100 squats a day so I do 25 squats each time I go to the bathroom until I hit 25 (don’t do this in tight pants or you might rip them…this actually happened to me haha). I then lunge my way from the front bathroom door to my stall. When I come out I do calf raises either at the sink or by the wall, again 25 each time. The last thing I do is back leg lifts, 25 each time. This might not give instant results but it will over time and also make your feel more energized.


Healthy eats:

Like I mentioned before I am not the healthiest eater, I have a weakness for cheese and potatoes, but I do try. My husband loves to cook so we usually have a dinner consisting of a meat, pasta or rice and tons of veggies. We love veggies and also drink a lot of milk. I only drink soda on the rare occasion and try not to snack after dinner anymore. I eat a bowl of cereal for breakfast and a relatively plain lunch so if I want a cheat meal of Wendy’s or Panera I usually only do it once a week. I also never deny myself ice cream.


Since I get hungry every couple of hours I keep chocolate dusted almonds at my desk at work. This keeps me from being miserable and hungry and also keeps me from reaching for vending machine food. I used to eat a fiber bar to keep me full in mornings but I found this messed with my stomach so I stopped doing that. I also found out a lot of those bars have more sugar than a candy bar! I would also recommend fruit or veggies at your desk for a nice snack. These fill you up, taste yummy and you don’t have to feel guilty eating them. When a client brings in treats for me I don’t deny myself since I will just think about it all day. I eat 1, or 2, items and then I am satisfied. Don’t deny yourself!


In conclusion it is easy to move around in your day and make healthy eating choices. I also am an advocate for eating bad now and then. I love ice cream and always reward myself with some type of food goodies when I do something good. I believe that we shouldn’t hold back when it comes to indulgences. Food is meant to be eaten and be delicious.

Aspyn Ovard Unboxing | Fall Back to School

Follow

Hey Guys!

Today I am Unboxing another Aspyn Ovard Box. This is a seasonal/quarterly box. The smaller size which is what I get goes for $15+ Shipping and Handling. There is also a larger box that goes for $49+ Shipping and Handling. This is a lifestyle box full of Aspyn's Favorite beauty, skincare, and home decor and fashion accessories. 


This season's theme was Back to School. Check out my video unboxing below as well as write up reviews of the products with links.



The first 2 items were sample sizes of Benefit They're Real Mascara and They're Real Mascara Primer. This is supposed to be used together to gain longer fuller lashes. The Primer is tinted brown so you could use it on more natural mascara days. I use both together and my lashes look full natural and don't clump together. 


The next sample I got was Hello Extra Whitening Fluoride Toothpaste. This is just a tiny baby sample size and is natural and full of good products. It has a nice light mint flavor but I haven't noticed any whitening yet. This was nice to get to travel with but I would have liked a better sample than toothpaste. 



The next item is a baby size of the Derma E Purifying Daily Detox Scrub. This is a good scrub because it isn't too abrasive but also feels like it gets rid of any dirt or makeup on the skin. I wish this size was a little bigger though. 


Next I got a bag of Goodie Girl Cookies in the flavor Quinoa Chocolate Chip. These are DELICIOUS! They are gluten free and full of good things so I didn't expect them to be good but I was wrong! I want to buy more! 


Next I got a pink Zing Anything Citrus Zinger. I have the full size version of this and love it! This is just a smaller version with a flip out straw. You can infuse your water with any citrus fruit using the bottom of the bottle. I love mine and recommend it to anyone who likes to drink lemon or other fruit waters. 


Next I got a Valley Cruise Press Sunset Snap Pin. This is a cool retro style pin of a hand holding a camera. Pins are very on trend at the moment so I will be putting mine on my new jean jacket. 


Next I got a full sized Palmer's Flip Balm lipbalm in the flavor watermelon. This is a lipbalm that is very similar to an EOS. This on has a top that flips over to reveal the product. This feels super moisturizing on the lips and I love the packaging. 


The final item I received was 1 skynICELAND Hydro Cool Firming Eye Gel. I have not used this yet but the package says it de puffs in minutes and leaves eyes looking brighter and more awake! Who doesn't need that! 


Overall this box was a bit of a dud for me. It didn't pack the same punch as past boxes have. The samples were tiny and they only had 1 fashion/jewelry item. I won't be getting this one again. 

Let me know down below what box I should try next! XOX Chan

FabFitFun Unboxing | July 2016 Worth over $228!

Follow

Hey Guys! 

Today I am unboxing my July Fab Fit Fun box! This is a seasonal box that retails for $49.99 and always promises over $100 in goodies! The summer box contains 7 full sized items with 2 bonus sample sized items. The items in this box are perfect for a summer getaway, the beach or the pool!



The first item is the full sized FabFitFun Everyday Beach Waves Spray. This stuff smells really light and fresh and provides a light hold and gives your hair texture. It also conditions and protects strands. Because I have super long straight hair wave sprays don't work for me. I did use this by braiding my damp hair after spraying this. When I took the braids out in the morning I had nice mermaid type waves that weren't crunchy. I'm a fan! This retails for $18. Check it out HERE


The next item was the Betchsicles Ice Pop Molds. These retail for $19. These are champagne shaped Popsicle molds that can be used to make regular popsicles or boozy ones! There are 6 total. I haven't used these yet but I can't wait! If you are a Mom I think kids would like them as well! Just use fruit juice and stick some gummy bears inside. So fun! Check them out HERE



The next item is the Stemulation Daily Micro Derm Scrub. This bottle is huge and retails for $34! This is a face and body microdermabrasion scrub that is gentle and is supposed to brighten, and energize your skin. I love this stuff! It has a nice clean fresh scent and makes my skin feel soft and glowy! It is great to use before self tanning in order to get a smooth even tan. It also takes off dry skin cells to reveal smooth soft skin. Check it out HERE. Use code FFF20 for 20% off through 10/01/16.


The next beauty item was a full sized Passport to Beauty Gypset Luminus LipGloss in the color Berry Free Spirit. This retails for $18. This is rich in vitamin E and antioxidants to give lips  high shine look. It has glitter in it but leaves looking super glossy and tinted berry. It also smells great! This isn't too sheer or too opaque. It gives a nice tint and doesn't leave lips sticky. Check it out HERE. Use code FFFSAVE for 20% off through 10/01/16.


The next skincare item is the Osea Atomosphere Protection Cream. This is full sized and retails for $48. This is a lightweight moisturizer that protects your skin from damage, dryness, and leaves skin matte. It can also be blended into foundation to cream your own CC cream! I haven't used this yet because I only use day creams with SPF in them. I think it is important to always wear SPF on your face daily. I might use this at night once my current night cream runs out but it does feel super light and soft. Check it out HERE. 


The next item is a Summer and Rose Yoga Towel that retails for $36. There were 3 different colors we could have gotten and the one I got was orange and says "Dream Big". These are yoga towels that can be used on top of your yoga mat or used during a workout. Check them out HERE


The next item is a Trina Turk Canvas Tote bag that retails for $55. You could have gotten 3 color and the one I got was yellow and says "Sunshine and Saltwater". These have a cute nautical braided rope handle and are the perfect pool or beach bag! Check it out HERE. Use code FFF2016 to get $50 off a purchase over $250 through 9/01/16. 


The final items were just samples of the Burt's Bees BB Cream and the Cleansing Oil. 

Overall I thought the value of this box was amazing! The sizes of the items were awesome and the variety of items was spot on! Get your Fall box HERE. 

 

Aspyn Ovard Subscription Unboxing + Review! | Worth over $80!

Follow

Hey Guys!

Today I am unboxing and reviewing my Summer Aspyn Ovard box. This is a quarterly lifestyle subscription box that is $25 and has a high value in each box. There is also a bigger option for $49. Check it out HERE.



This month's box contains 10+ items of a great variety. I received her spring box a couple month's and it was awesome! Check it out HERE.



The first 2 items we received were full sized Zoya Nail Polishes worth $22 together. The first was a color called "Aspyn" that Aspyn created for her box. It is a neon coral color that is perfect for summer! It is going on my nails next! Check out my Instagram for nail pics HERE. I love Zoya polishes because the formula is long lasting and they are free of all the bad stuff. The other polish is a Glossy Top Coat from the Naked collection. This gives my nails amazing shine, dries quickly and stays shiny longer than other top coats. Check it out HERE.


The next item was a full sized Pixi Lengthy Fiber Mascara worth $16. This mascara has long fibers in it that are supposed to adhere to lashes to give them a longer look. Usually fiber mascaras have tiny fibers that are a bit messy when applied so I was intrigued that this one didn't. Unfortunatley I didn't like this. The fibers were lash length and didn't seem to stick to my lashes like tiny fibers do. My lashes didn't look much longer or fuller. Check it out HERE.


The next item was a Caolion HOT & COLD Pore Pack Duo (Deluxe) worth $8. This is a double pack of masks where one is used to exfoliate and deep clean while the other is used to hydrate. This product is a great concept. You apply the "warming" mask first for 5-10 minutes and then apply the "cooling" mask after for 5-10 minutes. Both went on super easy and rinsed off clean. I didn't notice any pore tightness or shrinkage but my face was super soft and smooth afterwards. Check it out HERE.


The first jewelry item in the box was a pair of gold Pineapple Stud Earrings worth $8. These are super cute and I love them! They aren't statement earrings but also aren't dainty. I like to wear them when my hair is up for a little quirky touch. I am not sure who makes them but they also didn't irritate my ears. Find similar HERE.


We also received a Kitsch Happy thoughts Vegan Leather Patch worth $6. This is an adhesive smiley face patch that can be put on technology, accessories, or clothing. I stuck mine on my laptop and it holds really well! Check it out HERE.


The next jewelry item was a gold Multi- Chain Anklet worth $8. This is a cool concept and would be awesome for a beach or beach wedding. I have no use for it at the moment but will hold onto it in case I need it one day.  Check out similar HERE.


We also received a Pineapple Ice Tray worth $7. This is so adorable! It is a bright yellow silicone pineapple shaped tray that makes ice cubes in the shape of pineapples. I already have a million ice cube trays so I am giving this to my sister. If I had kids I feel like this would be a fun thing for them. Check out similar HERE.


The final items in the box were 3 Crayola Markers and an Art Print Valued at $2. The print looks like the prints that are in adult coloring books. I probably won't be using it since adult coloring books give me anxiety so I will be passing this along to my sister.


We also receieved a $10 Gift Voucher to Buddy Scrub. This is a website that sells different body scrubs. I checked the prices and they seem to range from $12 to $18. I am not sure yet if I will be picking one up yet. Check them out HERE.


Overall I thought this box had a great variety of items and a great value. I am starting to like lifestyle boxes more and more since you get a mixture of home, beauty, and jewelry items.

What is your favorite subscription box?
