Influenster & Victoria's Secret Love - VSX Bra & Bottoms Review

Yes, it's been a while since I've posted huh?  What can I say, I'm a girl that gets easily distracted, so if I've got a lot going on I tend to put blogging on the back burner.  Not good, I know.

I keep telling myself I'll get back to it, but this or that comes up and I just never do.  Lately I've been a little fixated on a few other things, namely eating healthier, which for a sweet tooth junk food lover like me is a big deal.  But, I've managed to find some healthier snacks that I am loving, sadly, they aren't all that photogenic so they haven't brought me back to blogging.  I'm also working on getting a new business venture off the ground.  After years of casual mentions, my aunt and I are finally teaming up to try to make some money.  We'll be doing personalized items geared towards cheerleaders, and sports moms and I'm super excited.  Things are in the planning stages right now, but I'm determined to see this through and make a success of it.

So, on to the point of my post.  I'm a huge fan of Influenster, the site that sends you boxes of goodies as part of their campaigns in exchange for your reviews and sharing on social media.  They team up with various brands to send you everything from vouchers for free ice cream to awesome underthings from Victoria's Secret that I got last week, and let me tell you I was a happy girl when that box came.

I received the VSX Incredible sport bra in black, along with these awesome black and pink leggings that I am in love with. Unfortunately, I can't find them on the website, but you can get a peek of them in the photo. It was all packaged in a VS box so it felt extra special. Yes, I'm one of those girls that gets almost as excited about the packaging as I do about the items inside. I also got some coupons so I could pass them along to friends and family and share the love.

I have to say the bra is awesome, and I won't even lie to y'all, I hate bras. I know they're necessary but I also think they're evil. This one is not evil. It's comfortable, and let's be honest, how often can we say that about our sports bras? Not very often from my experience.

The VSX Incredible offers plenty of support and with underwire it allows you to workout with ample support and still look cute because unlike the typical sports bra that support doesn't come in the form of flattening the girls if you know what I mean. The bra also offers light padding, which is always a must with my bras. The fabric is comfortable and super breathable.

According to the tag the VSX Incredible Sport Bra offers the following:
- Maximum support
- Breathable padding and wicking liner to keep you extra dry
- Concealed wire for cushioned support
- Padded straps and bonded, seamless technology that eliminates irritation
- Super-soft elastic band for comfort & movement
- Cushioned, adjustable back closure
- Body-Wick keeps you dry & cool

So, do I recommend this bra? Heck yes I do!

I was not paid to provide this review, however, I did receive the products complimentary from Influenster  as a #VSSportTester.

Fun Free Stuff To Try - Crest 3D White Luxe Supreme FlexFit Whitestrips - #FindItAtTarget

So, it's been a while since I've blogged right? Well, I can explain...

It seems like life is either totally crazy and I have no time to blog or life is totally boring and I feel like I have nothing interesting to share with y'all. And, who wants to read a boring blog right? My spring resolution is to try to do better with the blog, among other things, like cleaning my house and not letting things get my anxiety and stress up. But those are all a completely different story.

I thought I'd share with y'all an awesome site that's given me some great experiences over the last year. That site is Influenster. Heard of it? No? Well, if you haven't then you are totally missing out. Every few months I get this awesome thing called a Vox Box and it's filled with some kind of goodies. I've gotten to try out tons of cool products, some of which I've never heard of before, and others that I am familiar with, but maybe don't use on a regular basis. I've even gotten a couple cool things that are totally out of my strict budget, which is an awesome bonus.

One of those things was my most recent Vox Box, where Influenster paired with Target to do a promotion called "The Target Spring Preview" where you received one product from a list of various products found at Target. My product is the Crest 3D White Luxe Supreme FlexFit Whitestrips. It happens to be one of those products that's totally outside of my strict budget.

These strips are great! They're easy to use and work like a charm. I definitely noticed a difference. So, overall I would give them 4 out of 5 stars. My reason for not giving them 5 stars? Because if you're on a strict budget like me, they definitely stretch the budget. However, compare the strips to having your teeth whitened at the dentist or buying the whitening trays from the dentist and you're spending much less money. My other reason for not giving them a full 5 stars is because if you have even slightly sensitive teeth you might have an issue with these. I tend to avoid whitening toothpastes because after about a week or so I'll start to notice that my teeth are sensitive and I would even go so far as to say that they ache. I find that to be the case with these strips as well if I use them as directed. So, when my teeth start to ache even slightly I'll take some time off until the sensitivity goes away and then I'll start using them again.

Please note, I received this product from Influenster and Target to try out in exchange for my honest feedback. All opinions are completely my own and have in no way been influenced by either company.
If you would like the opportunity to be a part of Influenster's great opportunities either leave me a comment with your email address included or send me an email and I'll be more than happy to send you an invitation from my personal account.
