My New Diet Bet (And How You Can Join!)



As I have mentioned before I am a huge Snapchatter.  Between the filters and the cool people, I usually can't go to sleep at night without watching all of the people I follow's stories. It's a small addiction of mine.

One of my favorite Snapchatter's is fitness guru LoveSweatFitness or "LSF". I have been going to the gym and running a lot the past few months and am now in the best shape (athletically) of my life so I really like watching her snaps all about her daily life instructing workout classes, staying fit, and of course, meal prepping. I included LSF's Snap code to the right if you would like to add her.

All this being said I have yet to lose very much weight. I know much of it is gaining muscle and me needing to work on what I eat but it is still very frustrating and I have little motivation to eat healthily. This is where the Diet Bet comes in!

4 Snapchat Secrets & Tips



Snapchat is by far my favorite social media platform. It is so versatile and fun to use. It is hard to remember a time before the two of us were in love. But this week a competitor was introduced into the temporary video/picture game, Instagram stories.

New Lazy Day Bra: A ThirdLove Bra Review


About a month ago I was scrolling through Facebook as I often do, and I saw a Buzzfeed article about this revolutionary bra that is flattering but also comfortable. This immediately interested me and I watched a video about a bra company named "ThirdLove". I was completely on board by the end of the video, ThirdLove has this really cool idea where they have customers fill out questionnaires about their breast then  the right bra for your breast type is recommended. AMAZING. They even have an app that you can use to get your measurements since we all know bra size varies from store to store.

What's in the Box: Influenster Spirit Vox Box

 Hi! I've been very excited to write this "What's in the Box" blog post all about the Influenster Spirit Vox Box. To start off you may be asking what is a vox box? What is Influenster? Mikayla, have you ever thought about how your mail carrier probably thinks you have an online shopping addiction with all of these boxes being delivered to your house? Well, I have the answers to all of these questions.


  I first heard of Influenster while on twitter. I saw a girl advertising a Covergirl foundation that she got in the mail to sample. I was immediately interested. Free stuff?! Free makeup at that?! Where do I sign up?! As I browsed the website I realized it was not as easy signing up and receiving samples right away (Bummer, I know. Sorry!) Influenster has these things called Vox Boxes. Vox Boxes are boxes of samples that Influenster gets from bigger companies, they sort the samples into boxes that match a persons interest of lifestyle and then send the boxes to Influensters who review products often on Influenster or connect to their social media accounts. There also a system called snaps where you you give information on yourself and the type of products you use. The trick with Influenster is to have the most followers on your connected social media accounts, review products often, and fill out the snap so you get picked for products that relate to you.

Why It's OK To Be A Little Basic


My friends at Urban Dictionary define the word "Basic" as, "An adjective used to describe any person, place, or activity involving obscenely obvious behavior, dress, or action." Before I even was using the term though, I knew I wanted to be the opposite of basic. Thinking back to when I was 11 or 12 I remember having such a desire to be considered different from other people, especially other girls. I think many people feel the pressure to be "not like other...(insert identity here)".
