Influenster~ GLOW VoxBox Review !! 💗

Hello everyone! 
Yet again, I have been MIA... There are only three more weeks of school (including this one) and I am super thrilled yet sad because the years are going by so fast. It was my birthday two weeks ago, which means I am now 17! Next year, I will be legal and that thought is just absolutely crazy. Today, Memorial Day, is a day where we remember those who have served our country. Let us take a moment, then, shall we?............

Okay, now I will be getting back on my feet and posting about this VoxBox I received a while ago from Influenster but never got to share about~ Introducing the Glow VoxBox! ✨bling bling



This is what the box looks like~


All the goodies !


SheaMoisture Face Samples ♥


Sinful Colors "Super Cooper" Nail Polish


⚡ Zahra Flash Tattoos ⚡


My Flash Tat & Painted Nails :-)

*** I somehow forgot to include the Not Your Mother's Royal Honey & Kalahari Melon Leave-In Conditioner, but I'll update this post soon with a pic! 

Although all of these products were lovely, my fave products were most definitely the leave-in conditioner and the flash tattoos! The leave-in conditioner made my hair much softer and easier to work with. It also smells great! The flash tattoos were long-lasting and (obviously) flashy. The nail polish matched my backpack, which I thought was kind of cool.

Well, I will be posting a lot more now that the school year is almost over! Pinky promise this time Until then, you can find me on:

3 Popular Monogramming Styles in 2017

Monogramming is a design that uses a person’s initials to present individual identity. It can be done in different etiquette like a person’s initials or a combination of initials of a married couple. If you often visit thrift shops or gift stores, you surely have noticed how monograms are gaining much popularity. You can see initials on almost every item, from jewelry and teacups to bath towels and baby items.

Interestingly enough, monogramming is nothing new. This technique of personalizing items has been around for ages. Based on history, it was first used on coins during the time of Ancient Greece to symbolize the reign of one Greek ruler. The artisans during the middle ages also use monograms to mark their creations.  

Monograms gained more attention at the time of Victorian era, when people belonging in high society found interest in personalizing their items. Embroidered embellishments became the trend back in the day. They monogrammed clothing and home furnishings.

Like the people during the Victorian era, many of us these days are still fond of monogramming everything. But just like in anything in fashion, the trends come and go. In 2017, here are monogramming styles that rock:

  1. The use of block fonts. With more font styles available these days, there is no doubt that you can find the perfect font that matches your personality. However, some people believe in the power of simplicity. After all, simple block fonts look more sophisticated and easier to understand than a circle monogram font. Oxford dresses and tuxedo shirts will look more elegant with block fonts.    
  2. Large surname letter in the middle. The three-letter monogram is a classic monogramming etiquette that never goes out of style. A person’s first, middle, and last name initials are given more emphasis these days. To make the classic monogram more appealing and stylish, many prefer enlarging the initial of their surname. You can also incorporate another modern trend, which is the use of block fonts to do this.
  3. Simple monograms on leather. According to fashion editor Steff Yotka, phone cases are the new It bags in 2017. By that, phone cases in monogrammed leather will surely be a trend this year. Leather work sounds a tedious process so you may want to count on shops that sell personalized items to do a monogrammed leather for you. But if you are really into DIY, you can paint a monogram on leather.  

If you want to try or learn more about monogramming, it would help to have a sewing machine for making clothes. What’s great about some sewing machines these days is that they already have the embroidery feature. All you need to do is make designs on your computer before merging them into the sewing machine to personalize your items. Buying a computerized sewing machine is more economical than buying a specialty monogramming machine. At least you can still use it when you feel like sewing new clothes or home items like pot holders, bowl covers, and pillow covers.
