sunkissed vox box.

"Palm trees, ocean air, sunkissed hair: the endless summer, take me there." --unknown
Boy do I love summer! I also love getting cool stuff in the mail. There's something about getting magazine, cards, letters, or packages that is so exciting to me. I think it's because it makes the ordinary day that much more special. Anyway, I got sent this cool Sunkissed VoxBox from Influenster so I could test out all this cool stuff for summer. If you've never heard of them, do check them out! Ok now on to the fun stuff -- I wanted to share some of these goodies with you all...

 Summer must haves include:

1. Dr. Scholl's For Her High Insoles: These were actually amazing and I can't believe I've never thought of trying these before. They claim to be clinically proven to help prevent foot pain caused by wearing high heels with an ultra soft gel arch to shift pressure off the ball of your foot. I wanted to put them to the test with my most fierce yet painful heel, my beautiful but dreaded Basic Sandal from Zara which has a newer version here, and another all black version and other assorted fun colors here. Anyway, these heels are suburban heels if you know what I'm saying. Only good if you walk from your house to your car, from the car to a restaurant or somewhere you're planning on doing a lot of sitting, and back home. I'm a city girl so if I wear these they are usually packed in my bag while I wear flats out to catch cabs and subways. These insoles made them walkable for me. This is a score in my book! You can find them here.

2. SinfulShine with Gel Tech (in My Kryptonite): The "Gel Tech" technology really does give that gel finish I love that you get from gel manicures at a fraction of the cost. And best is, you can do them yourself without any fancy lights and gadgets. It comes in 32 gorgeous colors, and for $2.99 I'm thinking of snagging some up for summer manis and pedis, and maybe even getting a head start on some fall colors. Check out this color and all the other ones here exclusively at Walgreens.

3. Olay Fresh Effects {BB Cream!} Skin Perfecting Moisturizer with SPF 15: BB creams seem to be the "it" thing right now, and again, I'm almost embarrassed to say I haven't tried one yet. For those of you who are beauty challenged like me, BB creams stand for Beauty Balm. And this one by Olay boasts being an all-in-one skin perfecter, sunscreen, and tinted moisturizer. It evens skin tones, refreshes dullness and give you a flawless look. I tried it on and the first thing I noticed was the fresh scent. I'm big on smells so this was a selling point for me. It could be the best face cream or lotion, but if it doesn't smell good I wont wear it. Anyway, this cream literally melted into my face. Unfortunately it was a little too light for me (hello Vegas tan) but once my skin goes back to my natural shade come fall, I'll be all over this thing! Another score for me! You can also find this here

4. Goody Ouchless Ribbon Elastics: For a girl with long thick, frizz prone hair, these are a MUST, no, a hot summer day must to make it through a heat wave like we've been experiencing in NJ right now. These are adorable and a nice change from my usual boring black hair elastics and even have a cute little ribbon look too.
 SinfulShine with Gel Tech in My Kryptonite. For a cool $2.99 I'm stocking up for summer and fall!
SinfulShine polish and Dr. Scholl's inserts make wearing my favorite Zara heels (similar) so much better.
Because happy, pretty feet make a happy, pretty girl ; )

What are some products you're loving right now for summer?
Happy Friday everyone! : )

    1. I have it on my toes right now and there are no chips which is surprising because when I usually wear sandals all summer my toes are the first to chip. so far so good!

  6. Can you take off the nail polish with regular polish remover, or is it like a gel manicure?

    1. you can take it off with regular nail polish remover. It gives a gel shine but isn't gel nail polish which is pretty cool. and the $2.99 isn't bad either!!

  8. Influenster always puts the best stuff in their boxes. I participated in their program the very first year they started. I love that they now have a theme to their boxes. Great stuff! Enjoy!

  11. I'm so happy to know that those insoles work well. I almost bought some the other day but was skeptical about how good they'd be. Thanks so much for sharing! I definitely have a pair or two of suburban heels.
