I love discovering new brands and products and I love getting mail! I’m so lucky as a blogger to be able to receive new products in the mail on a regular basis. After I share these brands on my Instagram stories, I’ll post them here. That way you can always come back to the post later on if you can’t remember the brand from my story. We love evergreen content over here, so let’s get into this blogger mail!
I will try to post these monthly and during the month. If I receive new packages after the post has already gone up I will add them in. I’m way behind (like months) so bear with me, I’ve been moving/in a state of flux and haven’t had much time for roundups.
Previous Mail Time Roundup:
Vintage Frames x Rémy Martin Sunglasses
I went to a cocktail party for an exclusive tasting of Rémy Martin’s Carte Blanche Merpins at the Faena Hotel Presidential Suite. The limited edition blend was selected by Cellar Master Baptiste Loiseau and has intense aromas of gingerbread notes, candied fruits, delicate notes of plums and a smooth finish on the palate with a spicy kick. Carte Blanche Merpins will be available nationwide for $500 a bottle starting this month. The event co-hosted by Vintage Frames designer, Corey Shapiro
Erno Laszio White Marble Dual Phase Vitamin C Peel
I received this from Influenster and I didn’t think too much of it while I was applying it. Kind of disliked that it was a two step process. Then I washed it off. WOW. My face is so incredibly soft. This blew me away completely. Very much worth the $100 price tag.
Cricket Tools Ultra Smooth Coconut Shower Comb
I received this a few months back but had braids at the time. So I couldn’t use it for the longest time. This is another product I didn’t think much of upon receipt but ended up falling in love. If you have curly or natural hair this baby is perfect. It hangs in the shower and really works wonders on the detangling battle.
Dolce Vita Harmony Floral Leather Studded Flats
These are my go to day to day flats. My only regret when I picked them up on Express is that I didn’t also get them in black. I wear them a lot! They’re so comfortable yet also eye catching and stylish. I get compliments on them from men and women alike.
PUMA by Rihanna Lead Cat Fenty University Slide Sandals
I purchased these FENTY slides with a gift card I received from SIX:02. A lot of people compliment me on them but also a lot of people think that they are representing Florida University and not Fenty University lmao. They’re really comfortable and I mostly just wear them around the house, my apartment etc. Score them on sale here!
Absurda Murillo Sunglasses
Another pair of the “clout glasses” style to add to my collection, but more subtle. I think these will still be wearable even as the trend dies.
Pour la Victoire Ceceks Pump
Picked these out for a holiday collaboration with DSW. I just fell in love with that cylindrical block heel.
Elemis body and a gorgeous candle it doesn’t get better. This was a great little Christmas treat from my friends at Elemis. My boyfriend and I are obsessed with their products. Check out our little bedroom candle collection we’ve got going here.
Our favorite has to be the candle I received from Hotel Sanders in Copenhagen. Every time we light that baby I’m transported back to my amazing stay in Denmark and the scent of the hotel. The La Centrale candle from the new food hall in Brickell City Centre is pretty great too.
Smashbox Always On Liquid Lipstick
I love getting collections like these! Smashbox really hooked it up with these liquid lipsticks. They stay put (they promis eight-hour color) and the pigments are rich. I haven’t tried them all yet but I’ve been steadily working my way through the box over the past few months.
Gem & Bolt Mezcal + Damiana
This is one of my favorite additions to my bar cart. I’m very enthralled with the history and method of the making of Mezcal. The origin of Mezcal has a myth. It is said that a lightning bolt struck an agave plant, cooking and opening it, releasing its juice. For this reason, the liquid is called the “elixir of the gods”. The branding and packaging of Gem & Bolt is also so on point. Check out the story behind the brand (really good vibes) and mezcal here.
Threshold Metal, Glass, and Leather Rose Gold Bar Cart (on sale!) via WikiBuy
Speaking of alcohol, I got this KILLER bar cart from Target using WikiBuy. This was my first experience using WikiBuy. I’ve been continuously using it since then. It’s one of those extensions for your browser that remind you there’s money to be saved. They bill it as “Waze for shopping” if you don’t use Waze to drive I know you don’t love yourself. Bascically if you’re shopping, wikibuy will let you know if there’s a coupon to be used rather than searching around for one. It all updates in real time and it’s just super handy. You can also get credit back if you’re shopping on certain popular sites. There’s really no reason not to have this app. You receive the items just as you normally would if you weren’t using WikiBuy but you know you got the best price out there. They call that a win win.
Origins Care Package
Origins was also out here trying to make sure I smell good and I’m well moisturized. They sent over their Smoothing Souffle Whipped Body Cream, Ginger Souffle Whipped Body Cream, Neroli & Lemongrass Feel Good Candle, Precipitation, Gloomaway Grapefruit Body Wash and Bubble Bath, and a tote bag! Ooh what a haul.
I’m a total Elemis addict now. They products are so good, or as my boyfriend likes to describe them: LUSH! This haul included: Pro-Collagen Marine Cream Ultra-Rich, Pro-Collagen Super Serum Elixir (very lush), Pro-Collagen Cleansing Balm, Skin Nourishing Milk Bath, Skin Nourishing Body Cream, and a hot chocolate cube!
There was honestly so much more stuff I’ve receieved but I cannot keep trying to play catch up so I just need to get this out. Will continue roundups as stuff comes in. Hoping to stay on track now that I’m settled, but I did just get a puppy (such a handful) so no promises lol.
