Bikini Ready Cravebox- Summer Here I Come

I think I said this in my last post about Cravebox, but these boxes never cease to amaze me. This Cravebox was the Bikini Ready Cravebox. With summer just around the corner Cravebox is obviously hearing the demands of women everywhere who want to get toned and fit for those summer swimsuits and the summer sunshine

 Cravebox Bikini Ready Box 

It was hard for me to pick just one item  in this box that was my favorite this time around. However, I am a big lover of reading, whether it be a memoir or a self help book. I think that this item was a a great addition to this Cravebox!

The Fast Metabolism Diet Book

Cravebox really impressed me when I saw this book. I have been going on in some of my posts lately that, yes,  I am on a health kick. Dieting has always been, well, somewhat of an obsession of mine (yes, I will admit this.). All the articles in the world can tell me to just eat healthy, maintain my portions, get exercise, but I am always looking for the new something to help losing weight become a little easier. I hope I am not standing alone in this thought.  So, when I saw this book I thought and said to myself, “Why yes, I would love my metabolism to be faster and to lose some pounds.  And do I do that  Fast Metabolism Book!” 

My goal is to read a little of this book every night, and keep you posted on my findings. 

Here is a little blurb about the book by Haylie Pomroy

From Now on, "DIET" will Mean "Did I Eat Today". That's because on the Fast Metabolism Diet, you're going to eat a lot—three full meals and at least two snacks a day—but you're still going to lose up to 20 pounds in just 4 weeks. And you'll do it with no calorie counting, no weird fad foods, and no deprivation.Instead, you're going to rotate what you eat throughout each week according to a simple and proven plan that retrains your sluggish, broken-down metabolism, turning it into a fat-burning furnace!


Sally Hansen Hair Remover Wax Strip Kit

I have purchased plenty of hair remover kits, but never one from Sally Hansen.  This is a full size kit comes with 34 strips in 3 different sizes.  My first test with these wax strips will probably be my eyebrows.  I am constantly tweezing my brows, and cannot stand them out of order. Maybe these wax strips will be easier that the constant tweezing.  And Cravebox also included a $2. Off  coupon, for future use or to give away to a friend.  I am sure these Sally Hansen Wax Strips will come in handy.

Weleda Oil and Lotion

To be honest I have never heard of this brand, but I am so glad to have found it. Weleda is made from ingredients are grown biodynamically and organically, and sourced from farmers through fair trade projects. I am excited to try out the lotion, and especially the Birch Cellulite Oil.  Anything to reduce anything like cellulite gets a positive rating from me.  So far I have opened the Pomegranate lotion and it smells wonderful.

Sally Hansen Salon Effects Polish Strips

Cravebox must know my style because I love black  and white. These black and white striped real nail polish strips from Sally Hansen will be perfect on my nails, and will match perfectly with my clothing for work. Yes, I know this is a Bikini Ready box, but these will be used right away, before Bikini season. The real test will be if these nail strips will actually last 10 days. I will keep you posted.

Gym Impact $5 Gift Card

GymPact is a free iPhone and Android app the is supposed to get people exercising. When users that complete their weekly goals they receive cash rewards for working out, which are paid for by those who did not make it to the gym. The gift card is to get started with your first week. This is very intriguing and an interested concept. While I really like to earn money for working out, I am not sure I like taking it from others.  Hmm I will have to give it a try. I am always up for some motivation when it comes to exercising.

And last a little treat from Zone Perfect

I am already a big fan of these bars, and I actually have worked with Zone Perfect before to promote their great bars.  As a side job I work marketing and promotions, completely separate from my blogging, but I have sampled many of these great bars during my time promoting Zone Perfect, and I highly recommend them. I was very happy to see them in my Cravebox. I already know that this Chocolate Carmel Cluster taste great, and is a perfect for an On-the-Go breakfast, lunch or pick me up snack.

My verdict is that this Bikini Ready Cravebox gets two thumbs up. It was a great mixture of items. With the book and the Gym Impact Card, I should (or hope to be) ready for the beach and summer in no time!
