“Me” time is so important! With my busy blogging schedule, I’m always on the go – running to fashion shows, interviewing models, writing my next blog post… #bloglife.
So when Pause & Unwind, the new self-care subscription box, sent me their September box, I was so excited! What a fabulous way to hit the pause button during my hectic day and just unwind?!
When I opened the box, I was completely awestruck. I carefully unwrapped the sparkling tissue paper and there was a beautiful bracelet, a citrus sea soak, coconut oil, “Happy” tea & an organic lip balm inside. It was the perfect mix of items to just relax and rejuvenate me.
What was inside the September subscription box:
A Druzy Bracelet from Cayetano Legacy Collection
A Citrus Sea Soak from Dirty Mermaid Beauty
Happy Tea from Wild Leaf Active Tea
Coconut Oil from Measurable Difference
Organic Coconut Lip Balm from Sapling & Sprout
I absolutely loved the products so I decided to take my own little photo shoot to send back to Pause & Unwind. I started taking some photos of just the box and then ended up taking some selfies posing with the products. I remembered what runway coach Mandy Dyonne Lieveld taught me about modeling certain products. Know your product and pose accordingly.
Since I took my own photo shoot, I was able to get more comfortable with posing in front of the camera. I took a bunch of pictures until I was happy with the angle, lighting and the overall feel of the photo.
I had so much fun!
The coolest part was when Pause & Unwind featured one of my photos on their Instagram! In the picture, I am posing with Sapling & Sprout’s organic coconut lip balm. I find it so funny that they chose to feature me posing with the lip balm because ever since my photo shoot, I never leave home without it. It’s always in my purse!
