Boxy and Chill: January 2019

Hey hey!! How are we all doing today? Are you rocking this New Years butt? My health challenge is going well! Today starts week 2 of it.

Well let me get to business. Here is what I received this month. This months box is definitely lack luster in my opinion. I was just not a fan.

First up I got the Briogeo Roscaro milk leave-in conditioning spray MSRP – 12$. I have gotten this product before and as most of you know I hate getting most hair products. Something has to be beyond mind blowing for me to get excited about hair.

Next I received the OFRA Long lasting liquid lipstick in the shade Miami fever MSRP- 20$. I do love liquid lipsticks and I’m excited to try out ofras formula. The shade is not one I would normally select for myself but I’m ready to try something different. The shade is like a brown/burnt red.

Up next I got the Tarte rain forest of the sea highlighting eyeshadow palette vol 3. MSRP- 36$. To be honest I think this would be a total waste of money and I would never have purchased this if I didn’t get it in my box. It’s literally all highlight shades but for your eyes… I will definitely try this on my cheeks and hopefully get more use out of it.

Next is the Tatcha luminous dewy skin masks. MSRP- 24$. I know tatcha is an awesome brand but I’m still undecided if I will be trying it or not. I have such an amazing skincare routine that is all natural. I may just give these to my mom or a friend.

Lastly I received the Billion Dollar Brows universal brow pencil MSRP-18$. This is actually what I’m most (only thing I’m) excited for. The pencil is actually really creamy and smooth and blends nicely. Something had to be awesome in the box!

I’m really hoping the next box will be bomb because this one is not exciting at all. It is still a very great deal but I won’t continue to be a charmer if I don’t like the boxes.

Till next time friends!

New Year, New Me?!

Such a cheesy saying I know. But a new year typically marks the start of changes we want to make. Whether we want to be more confident, thinner, more fit, less debt.. and so on. Today I am 28w4d pregnant. Fully in my third trimester and ready for everything this year is going to bring me.

Today I started the 30 days to healthy living (30dhl) challenge and I honestly couldn’t be more excited. I plan on sharing a little more of my pregnancy journey as well as my fitness and nutrition journey. I know this will be a huge year.

I wanted to explain the 30dhl a little bit because I realized many people had the wrong idea of what it is. First I would like to mention I have been studying health/nutrition for many years and have my master’s in public health. These aren’t just opinions, I will be stating facts. The program is not a lose weight quick fad diet, tho you can lose weight. You don’t have to work out tho physical activity will help you reach results and is always a good idea for your heart health. This program focus on detoxifying your body and teaching you how to FUEL your body with proper nutrition. Using Arbonnes products just makes it so much easier bc you only have to worry about one healthy meal a day and use the shakes to provide all the nutrition you need for the other 2 meals.

It seriously couldn’t be easier to be healthy. And as a pregnant lady I can feel so good about getting all the protein and nutrients and vitamins I need with little to no effort!

I feel the need to share this info because it seriously changes lives! Balances sugar with no spikes, no feeling hungry or depriving yourself through the day, just pure, beneficial nutrition.

If you have any questions please let me know! I get so excited about this stuff and I am so focused on helping people get healthier.

Happy New Year Babes!

Hey everyone! I hope everyone had a fun, safe new year. It was my husbands birthday yesterday so we made lots of food and hung out. Simple but that seems to be the life with kids and being prego.

I’m currently 28 weeks pregnant and I can not wait for this to be over. I feel bad saying that because there are so many women who would love to be pregnant but this has been a rough one for me.

Any ways, it’s a new year and for some reason we take that as a chance to set new goals and make changes. Even tho we literally can take those steps anytime. What are your resolutions for 2018? Here are mine:

  • Survive the last couple months of this pregnancy and delivery a happy, healthy baby.
  • Focus on my health. Nutrition will be huge for me and I’ve already started this but I will be getting more intense on this point.
  • Working out WILL be a priority. I feel I let taking care of everyone else take up so much time that I neglect myself.
  • I need to learn to love my body and self. Post baby bodies are not what Victoria secret models get because most of us do not have cooks, trainers, and nannies to take care of everything. I know it will take time but I will reach a place where I’m not crying in fitting rooms, hating how I look.
  • Focus on my business and my blog and post on a better schedule
  • Lastly it is always a focus of mine to be positive and spread good vibes. Patience is key. Life is hard and we shouldn’t make it meaner and harder than it already is.

2019 is going to be a huge year. I will be having a baby, my son will be a big brother, we will be moving, selling our house and buying a new one and my husband will start a new job.

I pray only the best for 2019 for all of us πŸ’š

BoxyLuxe Dec Sea-Sun!

Guess what day it is my friends?! Today I got my Boxyluxe delivered! Last month was a bit aggravating to me bc my box came super late and it was just frustrating. But this month I will not get pissed because I actually got a tracking/shipment email and it arrived at a decent time!

Have you signed up for Boxyluxe or boxycharm? Charm comes every month and luxe comes every 3 months now. It is a little guilty pleasure of mine. I get excited to see what the months box brings and if I’ll use it or not. I have a feeling this will be a good box so let’s jump in!

First I got the Luxie rose gold complete face brush set. MSRP – 65$ These brushes are soo cute and super soft. I can’t wait to put these to the test!

Next I received the Spongelle body wash infused buffer. MSRP – 20$. These sponges are so convenient with body wash infused in the buffer, which exfoliates at the same time. I will be finding this guy a new home since Arbonne is all natural and is good for my skin. I don’t want to use anything else!

I received the Elemis pro collagen marine cream. MSRP – 89$. I will also be giving this cream away since I use the best skincare available for my skin and it’s natural and not chemical filled. But this cream has lots of great claims!

Then I received the Violet Voss Pro HG palette. MSRP – 45$. This palette is so beautiful and pigmented neutral palette. They are silky smooth and blend like a dream.

I also got another palette from Suva Beauty, the protΓ©gΓ© palette. MSRP- 34$. It contains 6 highly pigmented shadows and 2 beautiful highlighters!

From Tarte I received a glitter lip paint. MSRP- 20$ This lippie is soo pretty!! I can not wait to give it a go on my lips! Also with that lippie I got the Grande Cosmetics grandemascara. MSRP- 25$. I can’t believe it is that expensive. I have received a few things from this brand now. I’m not impressed and the packaging feels sooo light and cheap.

Up next I got the Pretty Vulgar the powder room translucent setting powder. MSRP- 32$. Pretty Vulgar always kills it with packaging. The component is so stunning! I can’t wait to give this a try and see how it compares to my favorite Arbonne setting powder.

Lastly we also go a Crimes if Beauty wristlet and portable charger. MSRP- 22$. Wristlet is shown previously is super cute and I can’t wait to try out this portable charger!!

What do you guys think?? I’m pretty excited about it all and think I got a great value! Stay tuned with me on Instagram to see how things worked out!

What to Pack in your Diaper Bag

As a mom of a toddler my diaper bag has actually gotten pretty light since the older my little man gets the less he needs! But with a new baby that will soon be here I thought I would re-create my diaper bag checklist!

I recently purchased a new diaper bag off of amazon and I’m so obsessed with it. It is exactly what I was looking for. A backpack style that didn’t look babyish and wasn’t too big.so now that you have your diaper bag here are what you are gonna want to have on hand!

  1. Diapers and wipes! I mean that probably has to be the most important. Your little baby bum can’t sit in a dirty diaper while your out!
  2. Bottles and formula if you aren’t breastfeeding and are going to be out for a while or during eating times.
  3. A Muslin blanket. I am obsessed with these blankets bc they are so versatile. Need a light blanket? A cover for breastfeeding? Something for baby to snuggle or to lay over the car seat to keep out the sun or unwanted hands. This blanket can do it all!
  4. Extra clothes. Blowouts happen, be prepared! Trust me
  5. Toys/Paci. Meltdowns happen and sometimes a distraction is key!
  6. A wet bag is always nice to have Incase of blowouts mentioned before or you just need somewhere to put those dirty/wet clothes. The diaper bag I purchased comes with one!
  7. Lastly have snacks for yourself! I like to keep granola bars or gold fish (toddler fav), along with Arbonne fizz sticks for pick me ups and energy boosts! Fizz sticks are the perfect replacement for coffee, pop, and energy drinks and won’t cause your sugar to spike. Oh and their loaded with b vitamins!This is pretty minimal and basic list. I sometimes will throw in a few extras like bags for dirty diapers and lotion and rash cream. But having multi taskers really helps you from lugging around a super heavy bag!!

Who’s Ready for Christmas?

Hello friends! I know I have been gone for a while. I plan on getting back to a schedule here soon! We did a lot of traveling this past month visiting family and getting prepared for the arrival of our baby.

What you missed? I didn’t get to have the gender reveal I would have liked and I hope I don’t regret it. But I just don’t have friends or family where we live to help me out. So I’m super excited to announce that we are expecting a baby girl!!!

So who’s ready for Christmas?! I can’t wait! Though all I want is baby girl stuff. Can you say bring on the bows?!?!?

That’s a slight catch up and I will get back to it very soon! I’m starting a breakfast club nutrition group that starts Saturday but I’m waiting on my products I ordered to arrive so I’ll be starting a bit late. If you are interested in more information on joining please let me know!!!

How Arbonne has Changed my Life..

I started my business and journey with Arbonne just a couple short months ago and I don’t see myself looking back. It has been such a positive thing for me and everyone else who has been on their Arbonne journey. First and foremost the team and women who surround me are encouraging, positive, and inspiring. It is truly hard to have bad days when you know you have people looking out for you. This was a big thing for me because I live in a town with no friends or family and it gets very lonely.

Second it is so easy! Like I said before I rarely get out of my house and so I don’t get to meet people very often and I am still successful. I have the opportunity to make a paycheck every Tuesday! And Arbonne is a gift, which makes you feel good about what I am sharing. Third the products are second to none and sell themselves. Arbonne is the #1 brand globally for healthy living inside and out. We carry something for everyone. From babies, to older people, men and women alike. Skincare, Nutrition, and makeup. And I’m not just reading statistics, I use everything myself and will never go back. Arbonne is pure, safe, and beneficial so you can feel good about using it. We ban over 2,000 ingredients to provide our clients with the most clean and beneficial products and they work wonders! I’ve seen major weight loss in a healthy way, muscle building, and watched my own skin be clearer than ever! Plus I feel good about using everything while pregnant. I wrote this post because if you are like I was maybe you could use some extra money, or are a stay at home parent who wants something for themselves, or maybe you just want to start clean living and detoxify your life. I am here for you! I started this just to not feel guilty when I get carried away at target and now I am happier and more positive and have goals to grow and get my Mercedes!

Where ever you are in your life let me show you how you can grow something extra! Message me, email me, find me on Instagram (erinrenaemua) or Facebook (Erin Trevathan ) and I would love to share more! Join my team, try the products or both!! There is no downside, I promise! xoxo erin
