So lately my obsession has been subscription boxes/bags/whatever if you haven’t noticed. They are all so convenient and cute! I’m lucky I can use my social media influence to try them before they come out! Since it’s April 30th and tomorrow is May I’d like to share what’s gonna be in the May Ellie Box! Ellie Activewear has a monthly subscription of Activewear /lifestyle products at a really great price. It’s 5 items that always include a sports bra, a top and leggings or capris and then two other items for 50$ a month. If you think about it a nice pair of leggings is that price already! It’s a subscription box that I have gotten two of now. I loved my first one so when they wanted to send me another I was so exited! Number one the box it comes in is soooo pretty. 😍 Also the stuff that comes inside is super cute and useful for a healthy lifestyle! Below is what was in my box and then I’ll go over everything on its own.
The tank top, sports bra and leggings are a matching set from a brand called Marika. They are really good quality and could be worn to workout or just an athliesure outfit. The sports bra has those cute cutouts and I’d even wear it as a bralette! It has removable padding as well. The other two things are a Marika arm band that holds your phone while you workout. You don’t realize how convenient this is until you use it in your workout! It’s really nice and can fit most phones I’d say. The last thing was sort of unique it’s a set of stress balls that have different levels of resistance. That might sound a little silly but they are fun to play with if you’re doing computer work or just reading a book or something.

I have got to say I am no less than impressed with the subscription box from Sephora called the Play Box. I had heard about it from a girl at work, we are all obsessed with makeup! She said it was only 10$ a month so I had to look into it! I went on my Sephora App, which is great by the way, and they had a little tan all about the box. I have my credit card on my app so I bought it right then! I got an email that I was confirmed. I didn’t get into the subscription program until about two months later because there was a waiting list! When I finally got an email that I would be getting an April box.
When it came in the mail I knew right away what it was. The box was red white and black and it said “Play!” On the front. Below is a photo of what was inside!
1. Peter Thomas Roth Water Drench
2. Purity Face Cleanser
3. Sephora Brand Waterproof Eye Makeup Remover
4. Smashbox Photo Finish Primer
5. Makeup Forever Aqua XL Eye Pencil
6. Miu Miu perfume
I was so excited to try out everything! That night I washed my face with the cleanser. It smelled really good and I liked it but I had makeup on and it didn’t really take it all off. Then after I used the moisturizer and I really liked it. I love the consistency of it and that it said it would hydrate for 72 hours. I have combination skin so I love a good moisturizer! Then that morning I used the Makeup Forever eye pencil. It went on really well and since it’s hot and sweaty I liked that it was waterproof. It really did stay on all day. I had used the Smashbox primer before and I had already loved it but I enjoyed having a cute little size of it! The waterproof makeup remover worked really well on my Better Than Sex mascara (which is kinda hard to get off) and it was so much easier than trying to scrub it off in the shower. The Miu Miu perfume was cute but it just wasn’t the right smell for me personally.
Overall the box is totally worth the 10$ a month especially if you already buy stuff from Sephora. And who doesn’t love the cute little sizes! It’s really nice to try it in a small size before you buy it for real.
You have probably seen or heard of the company Bootay Bag before. Probably because its so popular and for a good reason! If you haven’t, Bootay Bag is an underwear subscription bag. Every month they send you two new pairs of super cute undies! When you subscribe, you get to pick what styles you like. Chose from Cheeky and Thong, you can chose to only have thongs, sometimes have thongs, or never have thongs. You pick your size and then you can also chose to be sent a bralette as well! The subscription is 12$ a month. If you’re already buying undies from Victorias Secret this is nothing to you! The undies you get are really cute and really nice quality, so its not like you aren’t getting what you want out of your underwear. Its also really nice because it comes right to your door every month its like a little present to yourself! Bootay Bag is also really good at giving back. When you receive your bag and post a photo with the hashtag #UnderMatters they will donate 1$ to the Melanoma Foundation. They have given so much back because of this simple idea.

As some of you know, I work as a receptionist/makeup artist/ social media manager at a local salon called The Powder Room in Missouri. The salon is also a boutique with everything from Bare Minerals makeup, bath bombs, clothes, purses, candles, and a ton of cute other stuff! Recently we added a new collection of the Quay Australia Sunglasses to our boutique and I couldn’t be more excited about it. Quay is a brand from Melbourne but it has swept across the world like wildfire. You can often see celebs such as J-Lo, Kylie Jenner, Bella Hadid, Jasmine Saunders, Hailey Baldwin and many more wearing these super stylish sunnies. When my boss said we were getting them I thought to myself, “they have these in like Pacsun and other huge stores, this is going to be so popular!” Sure enough I was right. We ordered about 40 different kinds to start off and in just over a week we have sold HALF of our inventory. They are 100% UV protection and are such good quality, comparable to prescription sunglasses in my opinion so I can see why they are so popular. Having them about 10 feet away from me every day isnt good for my wallet but they are all so cute I love each and every pair. They are suitable for all ages and some are even unisex. If you live nearby feel free to stop by The Powder Room and check them out! If you live far away feel free to message me with any questions.
