What's in the Box: Influenster Spirit Vox Box

 <a href="">Follow my blog with Bloglovin</a>

 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)".

5 Home Renovation Shows I Never Knew I Needed(Fast Five #1)

Over the last three months of being 20 I have realized a few things. Most of these things however have nothing to do with adulthood and involve how to re-purpose furniture and add equity to your home. This is because I have officially become addicted to home renovation shows. It's spiraling out of control. I have an urge to repaint all my furniture and a desire to have things like a feature wall. I dream of stainless steal appliances but I don't even have my own kitchen. I own so many pillows.
Lucky for me Netflix had me covered and has five shows that I'm obsessed with and want to share with you

What's in the Box: Birchbox Unboxing (#2) International Women's Day Box

Happy April! I have been debating whether or not I wanted to review my March box from Birchbox for most of the month. I honestly haven't had too much time to play with makeup this month. But just as we're beginning April I decided to go ahead and do it and I'll ask if anyone wants me to keep doing them.
