6 Summer Thrift Store Fashionable Finds

6 Summer Thrift Store Fashionable Finds

I recently went shopping to find some cute little summer outfits to take pictures in. I have been working hard to build my brand and increase brand awareness, and now that I have a DSLR camera, I plan to do more brand photoshoots. Thrifting is one of my favorite ways to pick up fashionable threads for less. I know that whenever I need to search for statement pieces for a photo shoot, something to wear while vacationing, or maybe for a summer event like a barbecue, I can always count on finding unique threads at the thrift store. During my recent shopping experience, I found six creative and trendy looks for the summer. I traveled to three different stores (two Goodwill Stores and one America’s Thrift Store) and found six cute outfits under $20 each! I was impressed that I was able to find clothes that have never been- worn before. I also received markdowns on items already marked down, and I even found a great pair of gently used shoes.

7 Ways to Boost Your Confidence and Getting Out of Your Comfort Zone

7 Ways to Boost Your Confidence and Getting Out of Your Comfort Zone

Thank you Jody- Ann Buckle for contributing this post to lifestylewithkris.com!

In a world that is constantly innovating, challenging and competitive, taking risks is paramount. Risk-takers (from some of my own experience) build confidence and uproots you from your comfort zone. In addition, you are more likely to take a stab at other endeavors that you were once afraid of doing. If I played it safe, I would leave my money in savings instead of exploring the world of investing. And if I played it safe, I would have allowed my talents to waste instead of publishing my blog and writing my first book in 2017. For way too long, I allowed fear to get in the way. Stepping out and doing what I was afraid of doing has been liberating. If fear and doubt are getting in the path of starting your business, publishing your book, or trying something new, here are a few things to consider that will boost your confidence.

I Received My First Ever Influenster Voxbox!

I Received My First Ever Influenster Voxbox!

O- M- G! The Love In The Air Voxbox from Influenster has arrived. I am so excited and grateful to have been chosen for this amazing opportunity to test products. This post will contain product reviews about the products that were sent to me for free, in exchange for my honest review.

What is Influenster?

Influenster is a product discovery and reviews platform for consumers and influencers. There are hundreds of thousands of brands looking for honest feedback in exchange for free products! Influencers are surveyed and matched to campaigns or a voxbox to test, review, and share with their audience on social media. The Influenster app is free to download and free to join! Click here to sign-up and learn more on how you can join.

 

Love In The Air Voxbox

The box that I received in the mail came with four products

  1. Coach Dreams Eau de Parfum
  2. Glow Recipe Watermelon Glow Pink Body Cream
  3. Goop G.Tox Salt Scalp Scrub Shampoo
  4. Mont Blanc Legend Eau de Toilette

All items are available for consumers to purchase online (brand website, Sephora, Ulta). The fragrances that I received were not full-size. The Voxbox also came with details on each product included in the box.

Coach Dreams Eau de Parfum (2020)

I will be shopping for a new perfume after sampling this fragrance from Coach. Coach Dreams evokes the freedom and adventure of a road trip across America. The scent combines radiant bitter orange with the sensual warmth of gardenia, cactus flower, and Joshua tree. The fragrance is light and long-lasting. My only wish is that I could have received a larger size to sample. The Coach Dreams Eau de Parfum retails $28.00- $102.00 online

Glow Recipe Watermelon Glow Pink Dream Body Cream (2021)

This is body cream is amazing and is my favorite product of the four that I received. This luscious body cream is whipped with a vitamin-rich watermelon seed butter, naturally smoothing hibiscus AHA, and multi-weight hyaluronic acid for deep moisture and ultimate comfort. I applied this body cream after an AM shower and felt hydrated instantly and throughout the day. It didn’t take much effort to rub and absorb into my skin. Watermelon Glow Pink Dream Body Cream will leave your skin baby-soft and with a healthy glow. This product is the newest out of the four and retails online for $28.

Goop G.Tox Himalayan Salt Scrub Shampoo (2018)

I had no idea that this product is from Gwyenth Paltrow’s skincare line. I didn’t even know that she had a skincare line! This salt-enriched whipped-mousse shampoo removes product buildup, dirt, and oil, and leaves hair looking healthy and shiny. The scrub did not cleanse my scalp as much as I would have liked. I do have thick and coily hair, and I believe that I did not use enough of the scrub (6oz) on the first try. I do like that the shampoo has rose hip oil and peppermint to leave the hair feeling purified and cleansed. I will give this product another chance, as I’ve heard great reviews from other influencers! G.Tox Himalayan Salt Scrub retails for $42.00 online

Mont Blanc Legend Eau de Toilette (2011)

Influenster sent some amazing fragrances! Mont Blanc Legend is a masculine and iconic fragrance for a charismatic and unforgettable man. It has key notes of bergamot and pineapple leaves and is subtle but striking and masculine. I gave this mens’ fragrance to my husband to test and we were both impressed with how light and enduring the scent is. My only takeaway here is that this was another sample just as the Coach Dreams Eau de Parfum. Mont Blanc Legend is the perfect gift for the special man in your life and retails for $75.00- $120.00 on Ulta.


Love is definitely in the air with my Influenster voxbox. I am happy overall with the products in this campaign. I would recommend any of the items in this box for self-care or gifting someone that you love. I’m excited to have partnered with Influenster and look forward to bring you more reviews just like this one.
