Sacred Space Living is a monthly themed, unique box filled with handpicked items that allowed me to create a beautiful sacred space in my home. This box included candles, incense, and one-of-a-kind locally made gifts. I was really intrigued by the unique items I got in my box; I never would have thought that I would use or even like some of the items I received; however, once I started using them, I realized that they really did bring peace to my hectic life. Everyone needs someplace beautiful to go to calm their mind, body, and spirit. Create that place with Sacred Space Living by Joni!

REVIEW: VIEWSPORT

ViewSPORT offers that apparel that requires you to sweat to reveal the full image. This unique sweat activated technology was a great motivator for me to continue during my workouts.

The first shirt I received was the "Better, Faster, Stronger" tank($26.99USD). This tank reminded me that working out doesn't get easier; I just get better, faster, and stronger. This is the mantra I always keep in mind while I work out, and it was so amazing to find a workout tank that really displayed what I believed in. Remember that every workout improves your physical self with this awesome tank! The phrase, "Better, Faster, Stronger" is sweat activated on the front and back of this tank.

Next, I received the "Do It" tank($26.99USD). This workout tank stayed in place while I got moving and was working really hard. A unique addition to your workout apparel, the sweat …

DefineMe Fragrance's perfumes are not just fragrances, they are movements. DefineMe Fragrance offers a collection of blendable scents that embody inspirational personalities. Every bottle represents mold-breaking, barries-crushing women that speak to different qualities we strive for: confidence, strength, free-spited, loving, passionate, and fearless! Before you read on, be sure to check out DefineMe Fragrance on Instagram,Facebook, and Twitter. I love DefineMe Fragrance as a whole because they offer six different fragrances-each corresponding to a personality. Delphine(lilac, freesia, ylang-ylang, coconut, and rosewood) represents creativity. Audry, the scent I received, (jasmine, peony, rose, and sandalwood) represents love. Harper(grapefruit, bergamot, honeysuckle, and amber) represents fearlessness. Payton(orange blossom, mimosa, clove buds, and musk) represents streng…

For more pictures of Vera Mona products, check out their Instagram. I really enjoyed the products I received from Vera Mona, especially the color switch solo and duo. Read on to discover more about the four products I received!

The first product I received was the Cake & Bake Beauty Sponge($14.00USD). "Cake & Bake" is truly a one of a kind beauty sponge that can be used wet or dry and for anything from full face makeup to baking and even to setting! "Cake and Bake" is reusable and easily cleaned and sanitized with warm water and cleaning solution or soap. Overall, I liked this beauty sponge. It was durable and performed well!

The next product I received was the Solo Instant Brush Cleaner($17.00USD). After I stroked my brush against the Solo sponge, all the eyeshadow color was completely removed! I didn't even have to think about accidental color transfe…

REVIEW: INKLING SCENTS

I received two fragrances from Inkling Scents. Inkling Scents offers 100% pure oil perfumes and colognes and can be contacted here.

Since I started using these products, I have really enjoyed wearing them.

The first fragrance I received was "Sultry". This scent smelled like musk, creamy vanilla, and lotus. Wearing this smooth fragrance is an exercise in seduction. I felt more attractive and confident just by wearing it. The base is a creamy sandalwood and white amber; the heart is a  lotus flower, orchid, and Bulgarian rose, and the tip is silky vanilla. The blend is provocative, yet clean. I never felt like I was overdoing it while wearing this, but, at the same time, I still felt like I was wearing something worth wearing. This mix is deep and rich - leaving you feeling great.

The other fragrance I received was "Unify" This perfume emanated of light citrus, …

REVIEW: VERA BRADLEY

Image
Disclaimer: I received product for free in exchange for an honest review.

Simply put, these books are gorgeous! I especially enjoyed the inclusion of "make-your-own" cards and gift tags. This book takes DIY to a whole new level. The book even takes coloring to a new level. The inclusion of quotes, as well as the excellent binding of the books, really add some flair to the old school activity. Most adults would feel silly or childish while partaking in such a juvenile activity; however, I found myself having a good time "designing" my own Vera Bradley patterns. Because this is a book, I would recommend using colored pencils or even crayons!

Overall, I really liked these coloring books. They were simple, yet beautiful: the perfect way to unwind after a long day.

Vera Bradley is a leader in fashionable handbags, accessories, luggage and travel items.

REVIEW: NESTIFY BOX

Image
Disclaimer: I received product in exchange for an honest review. 
I was super excited to have Nestify Box turn my house into the chic home I have always dreamed of. 
For many, the kitchen is the heart of the home. It is where we gather to replenish ourselves both physically and socially. I know this is especially true in my home. The kitchen just seems to be the hub of my home. Just like a Turkish bazaar, the kitchen serves many purposes and houses many exchanged. This month, Nestify Box focused on capturing the essence of the Turkish bazaar. I found some Turkish cotton, glimmering copper, sweet treats, and colorful ceramics. The Turkish towel makes a wonderful dishcloth. The soft cloth makes a wonderful kitchen accessory. The glowing copper decoration humbles any kitchen. It certainly stands as a conversation starter. The delicious Turkish pistachio treats I received truly brought some ethos to this box. I really felt myself enter a bazaar as I took my first bite of the rich chocola…

I received The Beautiful and the Cursed by Page Morgan and The Exile by C.T. Adams from BookCase.Club. You can find BookCase.Club on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram. If you received your own BookCase.Club case this month, be sure to post your pictures to my Facebook Fan page. For more information about this March's box or about any other boxes, visit BookCase.Club on the web.

In  The Beautiful and the Curses, Ingrid Waverly is forced to leave London with her mother and younger sister, trading a world of fancy dresses and society events for the unfamiliar city of Paris. In Paris, there are no grand balls or glimmering parties for Ingrid, and disturbingly the house her brother was supposed to have secured is not a house at all. Ingrid lives out her banishment in a mysterious abbey bathed in mystery. Ingrid's brother, Grayson, is nowhere to be found. Surprisingly, no one seems wary about the house or worried about…

REVIEW: BEAUTY BY EARTH

I received this sunscreen bundle from Beauty by Earth.

The first product I received was sunscreen with SPF 25($11.99USD). This natural sunscreen contains no toxic chemicals. This sunscreen is free of all the junk that your skin doesn't need or want. I was really pleased to find a sunscreen that works and is good for me.

The other product I received was facial sunscreen with SPF 20($14.87). I think it is common knowledge that our faces deserve protection for the sun too. I was happy knowing my face was protected with this facial sunscreen. It is rare that I find a facial sunscreen that I actually enjoy, and I am pleased to say that I truly did like this sunscreen. Plus, there are no parabens, phthalates, or nano-particles. This sunscreen is just what your face needs! SPF 20 protection with no harmful chemicals? Yes, please!

I received samples from elizabethW's Magnolia collection. For questions, please email elizabethW.

elizabethW offers a variety of bath and body products. Ranging from fizzy bath cubes to cedar drawer liners and even to hot and cold packs, elizabethW has it all. Not sure what to get?

This lotion is paraben and phthalate free. I love using lotions that are good for me! This product weighs about 6.75oz. It smells…

REVIEW: FUEGO BOX

Disclaimer: I received free product in exchange for an honest review. Pictures are property of Fuego Box

Fuego Box is one of the most creative boxes I have ever come across. The best of its kind, Fuego Box ships out up to three hot sauces per month. And because all things taste better from a subscription box, I had to give Fuego Box a try.

Fuego Box truly is hot, so this box is just for those who enjoy the spicy things in life. The first sauce I tried was Frankie V's Spooky White. Made with fresh and high-quality ingredients and locally sourced, Spooky White is packed with tons of flavor and lots of heat and made with a combination of white and orange habaneros, mustard, ginger, garlic, onions, and infused habanero vinegar. This product is handmade from scratch in small batches. It tastes great on guacamole, burritos, hot wings, nachos, hot dogs, soups, hummus, and eggs. Add a small dash to spice up cocktails and appetizers. For more info on this and other sauces, send Fuego Box …

REVIEW AU NATURALE COSMETICS

Disclaimer: I received product in exchange for an honest review. Pictures are property of Au Naturale Cosmetics

I received a few products from Au Naturale. I hope you enjoy the review as much as I enjoyed trying out these cosmetics.

The first product I received was the Powder Foundation in Biscay($32.00USD). This foundation is designed for those with fairly light skin. I found that it was darker than I expected, so I will most likely be using this foundation more in the summer or as a contour color. As I mentioned, this is for fair to light skin with neutral or cool undertones, so be aware of that when you purchase your own foundation. This flawless, clean foundation is formulated to provide extraordinary coverage with a semi-matte, airbrushed finish. Although I found the color to be too dark for me to wear currently(I will tan in the summer), I did find that it had a truly beautiful finish. Plus, it is formulated without gluten, parabens, animal by-products. synthetic preservatives,…

REVIEW: REMBRANDT

REMBRANDT challenged me to see if my smile could improve using their toothpaste. Honestly, after just a few days use, I can already see a difference. I'm beginning to love my smile again. I am so glad I have the opportunity to participate in this campaign.

The first product I received was the REMBRANDT DEEPLY WHITE + Peroxide fresh mint toothpaste. My smile was definitely whitened by this toothpaste. This toothpaste is specifically formulated to start working immediately for visibly whiter teeth. The refreshing clean mint flavor left my mouth feeling fresh and invigorated.This formula does contain Active Dental Peroxide which releases oxygen for whitening. Because of this, it is normal for the tube to look inflated or to release air when opened.

The second product I received was the REMBRANDT INTENSE STAIN toothpaste. I was able to fully enjoy my favorite foods and drinks knowing …
