To all my fellow Subscription Box Bloggers!

If you have not heard of the website: mysubscriptionaddiction.com YOU NEED TO CHECK IT OUT!

This site is the bees knees for those of us who are scoping out potential subscription boxes to buy for review purposes. The subscription boxes range from beauty, clothing, food, fitness, DIY projects, vegan, organic, mens, adult etc. If you’re having a hard time deciding which box you want to purchase next, this site has an extensive list along with plenty of reviews from other subscribers. There are coupon deals and you can create your own wish list to keep your desired boxes organized.

The best part is the Swap page! If you’re unhappy with an item you received in your box, or it’s just not not your thing; you can list your item on the swap page and trade with another swapper. You can customize your profile letting other swappers know what items you’re interested in and you can also do multi-item swaps. Here’s a swap I recently did:

I am subscribed to Fabletics which is an awesome workout clothing site for women. You can subscribe paying $49.99 a month for an entire outfit, the best part is you can skip a month if you like within the first 5 days of the month if you decide you don’t want an outfit. If you don’t skip the month, you will be charged the $49.99 which will be added to your account as store credit if you don’t choose and outfit.

I recently ordered a couple items, a few of which didn’t fit the way I wanted them to. The Adventura Camo tank listed above was a little too large for my taste, so I posted it on the swap page of mysubscriptionaddiction.com. Another swapper liked my item, so they sent me a request to swap with them. Once I receive a request to swap with someone, I go to their profile with all their available items listed and choose what I would like. I chose the leopard print scarf listed above. Once I choose what I would like, the swap proposal is sent back to the other person and they either accept or decline. In my case, the swapper accepted, so we had a trade! We’re both responsible for shipping costs of the item we send to the other person. After we exchange shipping information and send our items to each other, there is a section where we can update the tracking number so we can track our packages.

The swapper I exchanged with already received her item from me and left me great feedback. I should be receiving my new scarf in the mail on Tuesday!

It’s a really awesome site! I’ve already done 3 swaps. So far I’ve noticed that a lot of people are interested in my Fabletics items. I’ve swapped a sports bra that was too small, this tank top that was too large, and a switch back tee that I didn’t like the fit.

Anyways my fellow Subscription Box Bloggers, you should definitely check out this site! It’s really awesome and full of great boxes and items to be swapped for! Enjoy!

DISCLAIMER: I have received ‘Influenster’ products complimentary for testing purposes

Fabletics!

fabYippee! I just bought myself a 3 piece $25 outfit on Fabletics.com! I’m super excited to receive it in the mail. I always feel like I’m the gal at the gym rockin’ the same shit. Some times I get self conscious thinking other people probably think I don’t even wash my clothes!

It’s definitely fun to rock some new gym swag. Plus, I deserve a treat since I’ve been making such great progress with my workouts and following IIFYM.Ā Fabletics is an amazing website where you can buy amazing quality workout clothing at great prices. They have everything from sports bras, tank tops, t-shirts, shorts, crops, leggings to jackets, long sleeve flowy yoga shirts, yoga mats, accessories, open back styles and so much more. For the month of August they released a really cute Ombre style pattern for leggings, tanks, and this sweatshirt I freakin’ want so bad!

If this sounds like something you’re interested in, follow this link: Fabletics.com. You have 24 hours to get your first outfit (up to 3 pieces!) fableticsfor $25 šŸ™‚

However, this will sign you up for a monthly subscription that begins at $49.99. Every month you will have outfits tailored to your tastes offered to you on the 1st. You have 5 days (until the 5th) to either decline and skip the month free of charge or choose your own outfit! There is no binding contract whatsoever. If you should forget to skip a month, your card will be charged the $49.99 BUT you will have that amount as store credit, just remember for next time šŸ™‚

I’m really excited, I can’t wait to try my new outfit and get great deals in the future. I’m excited to see what they have in store for Winter apparel. This honestly is such a great idea for me because I spend most of my life in workout clothes anyhow. Might as well have the professionals tailor an outfit to my tastes, log in, decide wether or not I like my selections or pick something else out for a really great deal. Most 3 piece outfits are less than one article of clothing from Lululemon. Isn’t that crazy?!

Anyhow, I hope you can take advantage of the 24 hour promo deal to get your first outfit for $25. There is absolutely NO commitment, you can skip a month or cancel at anytime. I bet you won’t want to though šŸ˜‰

On that note, enjoy the weekend and browsing for your new wardrobe!

On top of that great news, I will also be receiving a complete supplement line from my sponsor Femme. They are launching their new Zip, Fit, Firm line of pre-workout, BCA complex, and a Carnitine blend for fat loss. I’m extremely excited to try it out, especially since I’ve been so happy with their Peach Skin Firming Cream. I’m not sure when it should be arriving in the mail since they are based in Australia and it took nearly 5 months for my first product to arrive. It turns out they sent my Peach Skin Firming Cream several times, it just kept getting lost in the mail somehow. I’m not surprised, IPSY had a hard time finding my house too!

Plenty of great opportunities ahead! I’ve been very blessed this past year and I’m extremely thankful. I will admit I was very discouraged when Quest Nutrition didn’t follow through with their offer to become a brand ambassador for them. I’ve worked really hard to get where I’m at today, putting in the effort to reach out to plenty of company’s, promoting myself and my lifestyle, and not giving up. It’s been a crazy ride, but things are starting to fall into place.

Product Review: Femme Skin Firming Cream

femme

Stars: 5/5

Cost:Ā $69.95

Pros: This cream smells absolutely amazing! I just received my first order in the mail from overseas in Australia, and I’m extremely excited to try it out and see what the extendedĀ results are. I used this for the first time last night. TheĀ tube cautions that you may experience a slight burning sensation, but that only means it’s WORKING! I applied a small amount (a little goes a looooong way) to the backs of my thighs and booty which is where I hold the most uneven skin tone. I didn’t feel an immediate tingling sensation until I woke up this morning. It’s summer time and my room gets very hot andĀ this cream is activated by heat. This cream was workin’ all night long! I can’t wait to apply more before my workout today! Check out the Femme website: getfemmenutrition.com and follow them on Instagram! #gethotwithpeach #femmenation #fitfastfeminine

Cons: The only con I have at this point is the price. It seems a little spendy for a 4.25oz tube. You can buy a 16oz pump of Beauty Bum on Amazon for about the same price. If the results are great, then it’s totally worth it to tighten that tush!

Enjoy!

Product Review: MHP Xpel

xpel2

Stars: 3/5

Cost:Ā You can purchase aĀ bottle of 80 capsules on sale for $14.93 on Bodybuilding.com. 80 capsules gives you 10 days worth of water retentionĀ diuretic. Do NOT exceed this limit!

Pros: This product DEFINITELY gives your body that shredded, cut definition you want for a competition. Remember, you will NOT stay that shredded forever, it is physically impossible and unrealistic!

Cons: Be extremely careful with how you come off of this stuff. It’s an excellent tool to give your muscles the edge on a competition, however it can have damaging effects on your body post show. I give this product 3 stars because it works, but it hurt me the following week. I gained 14lbs of water weight in less than 72 hours post show, my entire body swelled up, and my intestines BURNED. These side effects were a combination of different things, but I will not be taking Xpel again in the future, I am sure there are much healthier alternatives to choose from to get that shredded look. Hope this helps!

Enjoy!

Product Review: Myfitnesspal App

myfitnesspal

Stars: 5/5

Cost:Ā Free!

Pros: You can customize your own macro ratio plan (carbs, proteins, and fats) to achieve your goals! You can also create your own recipes and calculate the nutritional value by plugging in all the ingredients and dividing by the serving sizes. If you have a certain meal several times during the week, you can easily create a quick meal that will pull up all the ingredients for you in one click! Example: Mixed greens, 4 oz turkey, 1/4 cup cottage cheese, 1 tbsp almond slices – Turkey Salad. Love this app! My bikini prep would NOT be the same without it! Fat loss is a science, and this is a quick easy tool to help you. It’s free too! You can also calculate your calories burned through exercise, which in turn grants you more calories to eat šŸ™‚

Cons: The ONLY con would be the ‘Exercise’ feature which only estimates your calories burned, it’s not 100% accurate. Use a heart rate monitor to calculate your exact calories burned.

Enjoy!
