I'm in Love With Food!

There is something about monthly Subscription boxes that I find intriguing.. Especially if it's a box of delightful snacks! At BlogHer 2013 earlier this month, I discovered the company Love With Food who graciously sent me a box for review. In this month's box, I snacked on vegan cookies, a snack pack of cherries, gingin (ginger) candied, glee natural gum, coconut toffee peanuts and pretzel sticks dipped in a lime mustard dip. Love With Food carefully selects these products -only 10 bucks a month- and I can't wait to see next month's! Subscribe by 8/31/12 and save $2 off September's box with the code: BATVIP. Enjoy!

Caress Endless Kiss Bodywash

It's almost the end of summer and to transition into the fall, I have been using more earthy scents- such as sandalwood. (Of course I still like the occasional juicy/fruity scents too!) The Caress Endless Kiss Silkening body wash in Creamy Vanilla & Sandalwood is perfect to get the rich aroma and smooth, silky skin. The vanilla balances out the woodsy scent by giving it a sweeter fragrance. And with fall just around the corner, your skin can still glow with sleeveless tops & dresses! My skin feels incredibly soft every time I use this, so I'm excited to try other Caress products.

August Birchbox

This month's BirchBox had a back to beauty school theme which had products or tools to add to your beauty tool kit. It had an informative pamphlet but this months products were just okay for me. I liked the extra bonus of the shaver although I have tried this already.

Overall, I liked the DDF cleanser, which came in a generous sample size. I love trying new cleansers and this one fit the bill. It's gel like consistency cleansed my face well- especially for the summer. My next favorite product was their fragrance sample of Juicy Couture Viva la Juicy La Fleur. This floral scent has the right combination with a mix of fruity mandarins and wild berries. I wasn't too thrilled about the Comodynes tanning towelettes  & summer glow (partly because summer is almost over!). This would've been great to try earlier in the summer before my vacation. :) But I will try them before the summer ends to see how it compares to other self tanners I have already. A new surprise in this month called "Birchbox Finds" was the Schick Hydro Silk Razors- which I have already. and love It's a great extra, as always! I didn't try the Beauty Fixation Makeup Remover as these tiny Qtips are probably best saved for travel. They look good to have to fix any boo-boos. There's always something in the works at Birchbox and I cannot wait for next month's box!! If you haven't signed up yet.. they're only $10/month to get awesome samples. :)

Stay Fit & Dry with Marika Tek tees

As summer is winding down, just a few more weeks before Labor Day (eek!), I am amping up my fitness routine. This past few weeks I have been loving my Marika Venus crew neck dry wick short sleeve tee that is comfortable, stylish and effective! The fabric is incredibly soft and breathable which is great when doing an intense HIIT workout! Overall, I am pleased with my Marika active wear pieces in my gym wardrobe. They are cute and light so I feel great wearing them.
