VITALITY VOXBOX REVIEW

^Remember these goodies?!^

Well if you don't then that means you don't follow me on Instagram...do that, here ---> @jasmindailyfashion

Since having received the Influenster Spring Fling VoxBox I have been hoping for another opportunity to review more goodies, low and behold the Vitality VoxBox! I was pleased with this box and you can read more about my thoughts on each individual product below:

Softlips Cube | I am a one note wonder when it comes to chapstick, I use the same brand year in and year out so I was excited to receive this product and get to try something new, for free. While I don't love the square, boxy casing (similar to the Eos) because I always find it makes my cosmetic case bulky, I did really enjoy the silky feeling and the hydrating benefits.
Bikini Ready Energy Gummies | Tasted yummy, I love a good gummie. Unfortunately, I felt no boosting effect, however I did only get to try them the one time and considering I am usually on a coffee high I may not have felt the effects non coffee addicts would.
Elizabeth Arden FLAWLESS FUTURE | I am THE worst when it comes to taking care of my skin for the long run, I avoid thinking about my skins 10 year plan but after receiving this serum I am excited to start familiarizing myself with and using products that work. 
First Degree Advanced Burn Cream | Haven't had the chance to use it, but knowing the klutz that I am the application of this cream will be in my near future.
Playtex Sport Fresh Balance | I've always been a Playtex Sport girl but always used the unscented ones, however since receiving the Spring Fling VoxBox the other month I have been able to try this particular type and love them!
Pure Leaf Iced Tea | I love unsweetened tea and have been a Pure Leaf drinker for quite some time, I must say the free bottle tasted even better than usual ;)

I received these products complimentary from Influenster for testing purposes.

HOMEBOUND

Back in DC and boy does it feel good, vacations are always a blast and getting away definitely helps me reenergize but there is nothing like coming home. However, I am back to the DC humidity and desperately missing LA weather, crisp air, hot sun, and my kind of temperatures. Seriously wondering why I haven't moved to the West coast yet!!!

PINSPIRATION

Old Navy Tank // Vest (similar here) // Alloy Jeans // Persun Pumps (similar here) // H&M Necklace (similar here), Primark Necklace //Anne Klein Watch // H&M Sunglasses (similar here) // Earrings (similar here) // Nails: 'Snow White' by Maxfactor // Lips: 'Viva Glam I' by MAC

This asymmetrical black vest sits in my closet year round, barely gets worn, yet I really, really like it, I just haven't worked my way up to styling it, until I saw this on Pinterest. This is a total pinspiration outfit and while the vest is nowhere near as amazing as the one on Pinterest it gave the vest I own a reason to come out of the closet! Have you been pinspired lately?

My goal was to have all of my looks for LA photographed and up this week so that Jasmin daily would stay true to what it is, my current daily looks. However, for anyone that knows me, you know that I am THE worst packer in the world and procrastinate packing until the bitter end. I was literally packing for this trip a few hours before I needed to leave my house for the airport! Needless to say, outfits were not photographed in advance. Luckily, I expected very little of myself and photographed outfits from over the past couple of weekends or from recent nights out that never made it onto the blog, giving me plenty to post whilst away in LA.

MINTED COBALT

Old Navy T-shirt (same style here, similar color here) // Zara Skirt (similar here & here) // Forever 21 Pumps (similar style, same color) // Forever 21 Clutch (similar here) // Bib Jewelry Necklace // Anne Klein Watch // Pearl Earrings (similar here) // Nails: 'Snow White' by Maxfactor // Lips: 'Born With It' by Maybelline

In this Friday Finds post I spoke about my love for mint and cobalt and how to pair the two. While I have always loved the combo I think this is the first time that I have tried it out. I love how the midi skirt and pumps dress up the simple tee, and the necklace brings all the colors together. What do you think about this color combo?

Hello from LA! Weekends are all about comfort and for me comfort is especially important after traveling loads. I came out to LA on Saturday with my sista from another mister, Arlyn, to visit our bestie Michelle who recently moved out here to pursue her dreams. While we will be having an insane 10 days of fun and getting dressed up to the nines it is nice to have some relaxed, laid back looks to explore the city in. I always like to have something pop when I am dressed in a more comfortable manner, and for this outfit I chose a red lip and rings on almost every finger to make this outfit look "put together". Please excuse my short posts these next two weeks, I will be trying my best to soak up as much girl time as possible!

FRIDAY FINDS

ONE // TWO // THREE // FOUR // FIVE // SIX

As much as I adore Summer I always get really excited about Fall fashion! The thought of cozy sweaters, booties and layering dresses makes creating a wish list pretty easy, above are a few of my favorites that I am currently craving.

SIMPLY LATE


More often than not I am behind schedule. Mornings are often spent under the covers convincing myself to get out of bed, and even when the smell of coffee brewing does force me to walk into the kitchen, the only proper place to consume that warm piece of heaven is back where I started...in bed. When days like this ensue all you can do is accept that its a black shirt and comfy pumps kind of day, throw on a fun lip color as you're walking out the door and embrace that you are, simply late.

Jasmin
