The Ring Boxes Review

the ring boxes review, the ring boxes

We are less than 3 months out from the wedding, and y’all let me tell you..it’s starting to feel REAL!

I’ve been getting these fantastic boxes from The Ring Boxes for a few months now, and I think this last one is my favorite one so far. Why, you may ask? I’ll show you in a minute!

First, if you’re unfamiliar, The Ring Boxes is a bridal subscription box that comes monthly and includes a variety of goodies to spoil the bride-to-be. I am lucky enough to have a wonderful father who gifted me my subscription and I highly recommend them as gifts to other people!

They have a few different options to choose from including month-to-month, 3 months, 6 months and 12 months. I got the 12 month one even though I was only going to be engaged for 10 months because 1, who doesn’t love getting packages in the mail and 2, one of my best friends (and bridesmaids) is also engaged and I plan to gift her a few things 😉 The 6 month box is the most popular gifted one.

The Ring Boxes were generous enough to give me a discount code for you guys to get 30% off your first box!! You can use code “Pearls30” at checkout 🙂

Now, what came in the box?!

The day I got this shirt, I wore it haha. Hence why it’s got dog hair all over it. Everything in our house has dog hair all over it. ‘Tis the life of a pet parent.

I am on a great workout routine right now getting ready for the wedding, so adding anything to help with that is a huge bonus for me!

Do you get motivated by cute workout clothes?? If I don’t feel like working out, I just put on a cute outfit and it really helps me get in the right mindset. I am a firm believer in the “look good, feel good” saying.

On top of a cute top, I got new workout essentials!! The pink chevron ear buds are so cute. I don’t personally use ear buds when I work out since I work out at home, but they’ll definitely come in handy for my flight home next month and when I listen to podcasts at work or at home.

If you don’t know, my weakness is pizza. When I’ve had a bad day, Jake always suggests we order a pizza because it instantly cheers me up. I wish I could explain why haha. It’s just my comfort food! So this pink water bottle is PERF.

I’ve also worn this headband every day since I got it.

I have a terrible time with headbands. I think my head is oddly shaped because NO headbands ever stay on my head. Especially when I’m working out and moving all around.

This one STAYS PUT. It’s because the inside is lined with a velvet material. It doesn’t move around at all! I’ve linked a similar one for you below because it’s fantastic.

Obviously the above picture is before I worked out, but by the end it hadn’t moved. And my hair is CRAZY. So that means a lot for me.

Another cool thing is that it’s adjustable. It has a little piece on the back that lets you tighten and loosen it. I think that helps a lot because it’s made to fit my head whereas all others are one size fits all.

The other things in the box include a bar of lavender soap (which smells as amazing as it sounds) and a pink gym towel.

They also include two recipes for you in every box with a wine recommendation. How sweet is that?! Encouraging date night! Jake and I love to cook together and love getting new recipes to try.

Overall, I think this was my favorite box I’ve received so far because I loved the fitness theme AND I loved that I will legit get to USE everything in the box.

You know sometimes you get things in subscription boxes where you’re like “mmmm this is nice but will I ever actually use it?” and then it sits in your closet/desk/bathroom for 6 months before you randomly find it again when you’re deep cleaning? To me that feels like a waste of money. So I’m happy to get my (dads) money’s worth from these boxes.

Are you or someone you know engaged?? I’d love to hear about it! Leave me a comment about your story below!

Remember to use code “Pearls30” at checkout for 30% off your first box! 🙂

Have an awesome Wednesday!

XO,

Dani

  • Have you ever been so excited about something that every time you talk to someone who you see could benefit from it, you just want to tell them every single thing about it because you just want to help them? That’s how I feel about minimalism and living with less. It’s changed my life and my mindset in so many ways and all I want to do is tell people about it. But I don’t, unless they ask. 
You can’t force change on people. They have to come to their own conclusions in their own time. They have to have their own inspiration *ah ha!* moments like you had. You can talk until you’re blue in the face, but they won’t HEAR you until they’re ready. The best way to show them how great something is is by being an example! Be the change you wish to see. Maybe you can inspire others with your happiness. Happy Tuesday!

This weekend (and in general, lately) I took a little break from social media. Since I started my new job, this weekend was the first actual weekend Jake and I have spent together since we got back from our honeymoon in October. Crazy, right?! It was wonderful to spend time with family and get stuff done together and just enjoy the time we had. Making time for what’s important is so crucial to your mental health and the health of your relationships! If you’re too busy, remove the things that aren’t actually important and make time for the things that are.

  • “Stop buying things you can’t afford to impress people you don’t even really like” - @msrachelhollis 
I just started reading “Girl, wash your face” and I have to say, so far, I dig it. The author is very real and relatable and pretty funny. I’ve heard so many great things about it, I had to add it to my reading list. 
This particular quote from the introduction really stuck out to me because it hit home so hard. I used to be that person who spent money I didn’t have to impress others that I didn’t like or didn’t even know. Looking back now I know WHY I did it, but I still wish I had been wise enough to know it was stupid and not at all important. I guess that’s all part of growing up, right? Better late to realizing it than spending my life that way! 
Happy Friday, beautiful 😘
  • Is this week flying by for anyone else? We’re a few days into the Lent season, and I told myself that I would find 40 more things in my home over these 40 days to donate. We’re not even to the halfway point yet, and I’m already more than halfway there.

I have found more clothes, more things from my kitchen, more random hidden items throughout my house like old candles, pet toys, picture frames that I didn’t find in my first go through and I am happy to be getting rid of now. 
It’s crazy how each time I go through my house again I find more things to part with. Things that don’t bring joy or add any value. And you may think that I’m throwing away all of the money that I’ve spent. That’s partially true. But I feel no guilt, because the money is already spent and it no longer adds value so it has to go. It’s not easy to let everything go. I still feel some attachments. But it’s gotten much easier. What are you doing for lent? Do you celebrate or like the idea of it and what it represents?
  • Happiness is Decluttering.
Since embracing the idea of a minimalist lifestyle, more than our closets have changed.
I’ve become a lot more confident and comfortable with myself. I wear less make up, curl my hair less often, and with my capsule wardrobe I put way less effort into what I wear. 
This time last year, I was tanning every week, shopping constantly, only buying name brand makeup, keeping my nails and eyelashes done and trying to be like these girls I see on my Instagram feed. It was EXPENSIVE. I thought their lives looked so glamorous. Now when I see their pictures, I think of all the time, money and space they waste on that stuff, which adds no real value to their lives. People I once envied I now look at the complete opposite...I think what I have is more valuable. Have you ever had any big changes of heart? I’d love to hear about them!
