99 a season but last time i remember thinking that that was worth the amount of quality and quantity of products inside so we’ll see if that stands true everything inside of the box is all natural and on average you get four to six full-size products so i’m gonna bring a chair over so that we can unbox this at eye level and we’ll see what it is all right take a little peek it’s been really hard not to peek inside of this oh man already killing it look i’ll show you okay so geo box is an indie beauty package with all natural cruelty free personal kel kell i’m so like i’m trying to say my name personal care and wellness products every item is hand selected vetted and curated for each season join us on this box to discover your boutique in a box and look at this oh good yes mackel 10 for 10 off their first box it’s still valid that’s amazing how beautiful everything is is that not just stunning okay so this does have the value of the products inside so we can reference the value of everything i hope i never get like jaded my guess with how cool subscription boxes are but this one makes me feel like a kid again i do think that this is probably in my top five oh okay first we have something from om om organics it’s a face brightening mask with superfruit aha made in canada this has a 2850 value and some of the super fruit complexes come from pomegranate star fruit passion fruit kiwi guava so many other things look at this look at this box look at that in my next life i’m gonna go into packaging this is such a pretty container how do they find all of these products that are just so stunning that’s what i want to know so already the value of this is half of the cost of the box which is a pretty good start in my opinion next we have something from wildcraft which is called restore face cream let’s see what we can find out about this this values also at oh 21 usd 28 canadian dollars the fact that this has canadian dollars leads me to believe that it can ship to canada i know i’ve had a lot of people comment lately being like i get so excited to order a box but then it doesn’t ship to canada so maybe this is the one for you deeply hydrating with a luxurious consistency this face cream provides comfort and relief for dehydrated skin to normal skin my skin lately has definitely been on the drier side so this is like speaking my language wow this is so pretty look at that that is just stunning stunning and it smells delicious this is the type of stuff that if i had a beautiful bathroom which i don’t i don’t even have a drawer in my bathroom but if i did i would love to display all this like a spa like out on the counter and feel like you have a luxurious spa treatment every time you go into your own bathroom a candle i love candles okay honey fig and ginger this is from killig candle co 100 soy wax this is valued at 12 usd oh it has a zing of ginger it says i’m really excited to give this a sniff oh my gosh it smells like the zing is there but it smells so fresh like clean i really like this this is perfect for summer honestly honey ginger and figure like three of my favorite things i feel like this is such a good gift like if someone sent this to me as a gift it would be 10 out of 10.
okay now we have something by province apoca fairy apothecary i always say that word wrong and i catch it later i mix up the t and the c this is invigorating and balancing toner with rose and geranium this is valued at 18 usd the cooling floral essence based toner is a vital part of your everyday skincare routine feeding your skin nourishing botanicals and rebalancing after cleansing everything is so pretty how do they do it oh and there’s something else from this brand there’s one more thing moisturizing oil cleanser and makeup remover this has avocado and raspberry and this value is at 44 usd holy okay just a second i’m gonna add up the value of all of this four plus eighteen plus two months 29 plus 12.
it’s 124 value so you double what you spend on the box which is awesome also this is uh this isn’t even out yet so this is a sneak peek for the box that’s coming out later this month which is awesome so this says transform your skincare routine with the purifying organic oil cleanser use daily to thoroughly remove dirt makeup and pollution without disrupting the natural ph of your skin and apparently this brand is very high quality just based off of just based off the price alone y’all this stuff is all full of stuff that i would be so thrilled to get so good so good thank you gu box for sending this over and letting me unbox this in one of these vlogs like i said i’ll link this down below and i’ll have the promo code and everything down below for you as well love a little unboxing in a vlog every now and then they make me really happy they really really do so someone is coming to pick up our old couches here in about an hour so i we thoroughly cleaned the couches and everything yesterday but i want to clean them one more time before she comes and picks them up so that they’re as pristine as possible but after that point let’s let’s have matcha together and let’s catch up also i need to do a return anthropology and i’m out of foundation and i can’t decide if i want to do that today or not but if i do do that today i’ll take you with me as well these shorts that i ordered from anthropology and mail time they’re so cute and i first got a small and they were way too big on my waist and so then i got an extra small and they fit my ways but they’re way too tight on my thighs which is a very common problem for me when it comes to finding bottoms that actually fit so it’s very sad because i think these are adorable but i’m gonna go ahead and return them i did take off the tag not really thinking hopefully that’s not an issue but the cost of these shorts will more than cover the cost of my foundation which kind of works out nice i always love return not returning but like justifying money i’m spending because then i don’t feel guilty about getting things even if it’s foundation which is like not a necessity but more essential than other frivolous purchases yeah do you like the new rug is it so soft do you like it you like it okay we are in the middle of moving everything around i’m trying to get clips for like the home redo video and remember to vlog at the same time but our furniture is gone and we moved the media console over here because a friend of mine is going to come pick it up and the next thing we’re going to do is take down the tv and move the third bookshelf from outside where the tv is and eventually set the tv over here we’re just going to set it on top of that until our new piece of furniture comes in as our media console which will be a while oh also sometime today our coffee table is supposed to get here lots of changes this dude’s already sweaty this is your first uh appearance in this vlog hello he says hello um i also cleaned under our rug it gets oh you’re doing that alone oh i thought you’re taking it down i was like let me help you get surprisingly dirty under a rug okay i’m gonna help remove the tv now this is one thing that i’m wondering so our couch is going to go horizontal and the rug is currently horizontal but this room shape is vertical so now there’s all this blank space which is technically now put up part of our den it was part of our walkway but now it’s going to be part of our den so i’m wondering if we turn the rug vertical even though our couch will be horizontal or do we leave it the way it is and have like this blank space a floor before our media console that’s the question okay tea time and life updates got my matcha okay so what should i tell you first dance to the label or health i’ll start with health so i got my blood work back and i actually haven’t talked to my doctor yet i just got it through like my portal like my patient portal let me sign in so i can pull it back up good news bad news good news is everything looks normal which is awesome because that rules out lupus that rules out thyroid issues that rules out anemia and then just like some general panel stuff that i don’t know like cholesterol is good like you know the normal stuff is all good there’s a big fly in here can you hear it also speaking about hearing things this mic has been acting up lately where it like like and i really hope that’s not happening now i can hear a very similar noise coming from my froth but uh part of me obviously is so relieved that it’s not a thyroid issue or it doesn’t seem to be lupus or any of those things but then part of me is like well now what like back from square one i i want to ask her i want to get a full like allergy panel done because at this point it’s probably an allergy or maybe it is viral maybe the dermatologist was right and it’s some sort of weird virus because we didn’t test for anything like that in my blood work but you know what’s so funny there was one thing let me see the one and only thing that showed up as uh not quite normal it wasn’t far off enough to be a concern but it was just too low is i’m trying to find the exact thing because i know that there’s a lot of doctors and pre-med students and stuff in this community yes okay if you watch last week’s vlog you know that i was honestly too dramatic very emotional still again i’m embarrassed by that and i’m sorry um just trying to keep it real here on the vlog because the nurse was so mean to me and she kept accusing me over and over of being dehydrated which is why she couldn’t take my blood mind you it’s been a whole week and this bruise is still healing but the only thing that came off as not quite correct was my urea nitrogen levels also known as bun bun i don’t know if that’s pronounced urea or if it is urea but like i said i haven’t talked to my doctor yet it’s not low enough to where it was like a big concern but typically that level is low if you’re over hydrated and i forced myself to drink so much water before my blood work because i i know like i said last week i have such difficult veins and so i just thought it was funny i want to send this to that nurse and be like see i told you i drank a lot of water my blood work literally says so i don’t know if it could be low for other reasons and perhaps it could be i think it has to do with your liver i know if it’s high you that’s when it’s concerned because your liver isn’t processing things but if it’s low then your liver is like over processing or over hydrated i don’t know i’m not a bad student at all that’s just my understanding of it people could probably clarify that a little bit better in the comments but i just thought that was so funny uh my rash it’s kind of healing a little bit it’s like flaking off it’s starting to spread to this side a little bit but i’m kind of wondering if it’s actually starting the process of going away meaning this time around it would have only lasted a month-ish whereas last time it lasted like five months would be great if this stopped spreading so maybe this rash is a completely different thing who knows i honestly don’t even know um i have had some good days and i have had some really bad days yesterday was a really bad day i was so incredibly tired headache not hungry took multiple naps today i’m feeling pretty good which is awesome given today i haven’t really eaten which is also interesting what have i had today today i’ve had some hippies and it’s 2 p.
m i wonder if that has any correlation anyways long story short is i don’t know but i also wanted to give you an update on dancing the label because i posted on my instagram that i’ve had these scrunchies in the works for six months and we decided to scrap this this bee which is so cute i had an artist friend here in la draw this bee up for me and we had these in three different colors we had them in navy and in like a mossy green color and in a yellow color we have been working on these literally for six months since end of february early march i think and the reason that we scrapped it i’m going to be so transparent here and probably too transparent and i hope this isn’t like spilling the tea too much but my crew neck was in the works forever and ever and ever and ever and kristen johns has a company called kristin made ended up coming out with a crew neck a little bit before mine and they did look a little bit similar and i got a couple comments being like this kind of reminds me of kristen made i don’t think in like an accusatory way and i kind of thought the same thing too honestly even though like obviously i hadn’t released mine yet and mine had been in the works since before hers were in the works and i already know that like we have a lot of viewers that overlap because we are kind of similar even though i am by far the way smaller creator here in this situation and we found out a couple weeks ago she just released scrunchies and i did not want to be accused of um being too similar i would hate to be accused of being too similar even though like i said these have been in the works for over six months now so i decided it would just be better to scrap it all together because that’s a very tricky area it’s a very tricky thing it’s better anyways for me to just try to put out products that are you know not being put out right now by other specific young female christian youtubers you know so um we are pivoting the process of creating these products has been so long i have pivoted to a whole new producer so it was kind of like starting from scratch we will have a shirt a t-shirt coming out and i those are already in the works so those should be done in like four to six weeks i’m hoping and then we have the process of you know getting the photo shoot done and up on the website and everything so i’m hoping in no more than two months it’ll come out and then the secondary product hold for plane that will have this super cute be on it who knows the timeline for that because we are starting all over i’m really excited for it i’m actually even more excited than these scrunchies even though i have loved these scrunties and have been wearing them in my hair forever i’m sure you all have seen me kind of sneak peek talk about them in some blogs back in the past and who knows maybe one day i will do scrunchies again when the time is right but the other product i think will be perfect this was supposed to be a summer launch but at this rate it’s going to be coming out more in fall and it’s actually very fall appropriate and very cozy and very loungewear and i think it’s more in line with loungewear than a scrunchie is even though you know you sleep in a silk scrunchie to keep your hair looking good so yeah it’s a pivot but i’m excited for it i think it’s the right move wow this vlog is going to be so long hopefully you’re hopefully you’re okay with a long vlog this week that’s my pivot really truly hoping that things come out in the right time and we are hopefully the product after these two will be sweatpants and i would love to get the sweatpants out before christmas so that people can give them to each other as christmas presents but at this point i’ve become very cautious with my timelines because like i said i was hoping to have these couple of products out a couple months ago and it’s hard guys i understand why so many companies just resell wholesale products like they will buy it and then at like a wholesale price and then sell it at like a marked up price like like aspen over its clothing line and people like that makes so much sense why people do that it’s it’s much quicker than creating something custom but hopefully it’s worth it to you all that it will be one of a kind and every single detail will be so thoroughly thought about and intentional and nothing but the highest utmost highest quality so hopefully it’ll be worth it thank you for your patience and thank you for letting me be able to be super transparent about my decisions behind everything it’s a weird tip toei world i just wanna you know always try to do the right thing and i don’t want to come out with things too similar to other things that people are putting out because that’s a like i said a tricky world i’m just going to accept the fact that this is a long vlog and brooke and i are going to go run a couple errands i am going to make that return and get some foundation because he needs to get some screws and stuff for his tv because we have to temporarily put the legs back on the tv until our furniture comes in so that we know where like appropriate height that’s not a sentence what the appropriate height would be to mount the tv which we don’t quite know until we have the furniture in place so we can visually see it so we’re going to run those few errands and i will take you along with me and it’s gonna be a really long vlog cheers we’re in the lighting section at target and i’m trying to find a light that could be a really cool hanging pendant but that has a plug because we don’t have the hardware hardwire in our place and they just they don’t exist they’re all these but i don’t like the way those look oh my gosh this looks exactly like our castlery mirror but that’s 50 bucks instead of 200 bucks well it was free too early for dinner because it’s 4 p.
m but we both not really had anything to eat today so we got smoothies and together it’s barney brooke forgot that barney was purple and green oh also this is not what i was gonna say but i also got a gluten chocolate peanut butter chocolate chip peanut butter cookie sandwich and apparently i still got to cash in my sephora birthday thing so i picked out some hair masks because i always love hair masks she also told me she gave me some samples oh purple shampoo oh water sleeping mask and deep hydration face cream from fresh so it’s been very exciting to say the least how’s your smoothie delicious oh good i’m going to try this cookie with y’all and then i’m just going to clean up and we have friend friend we have friend coming to pick up a lot of the furniture that we’re getting rid of i just am giving we stole our couch and our armchair but the rest i’m just giving away to a friend that needs to furnish her apartment because why try to sell things when you have a friend that needs things right so i’ll probably end the vlog after trying this cookie um because it’s not gonna be very interesting for you all for the rest of the day but you know what i just realized a half a cookie sandwich is still a full cookie plus frosting so who came out on top me excited to give it a try that could not be healthy they market it like it’s healthy it’s so good it’s so good there’s it’s just butter and sugar they market it saying healthy energy protein rich dietary fiber and brain function when the ingredients are brown rice flour white rice flour buttermilk then it goes down to chocolate chips unsalted butter powdered sugar granulated sugar brown sugar peanut butter don’t trust marketing guys this is not healthy but it’s so good and it’s so worth it all right max i’m coming thank you for letting me be honest probably to a fault with you about everything going in my life can you let max out i’m trying to i’m trying to end the vlog yeah this cookie’s really good wait do you want to try this cookie i’m not ending the vlog yet okay it’s really good here i’ll come stand up with you there’s a big bite what’s the cream powdered sugar and butter and peanut butter whoa it’s good yeah it’s very rich yeah it’s really good definitely cookie to split anyways do you want to say bye to the vlog with me bye vlog do you love them i love you i was telling them that i i’m thankful that they allow me to be overly open and honest with them about everything and for the most part are not judgmental thanks that means there’s like 6 000 people that are so nice and cool and sweet non-judgmental and that’s just the coolest thing okay we’re gonna clean up in here i love you i hope you have the best yesterday and i will see you in a video very soon bye [Applause] [Applause] you
