I’m so happy that there’s warmer weather on the horizon. Even though I’m not physically going out, I’m still on the hunt for fun spring/summer pieces. Femme Luxe, a UK based women’s clothing store, reached out to see if I wanted to try some of their pieces. I was hesitant at first because I’m very picky with my style and clothes, but I was excited to try a new brand and share my thoughts with you! Thank you Femme Luxe for partnering with me on this post. The pieces included in the post were gifted to me by Femme Luxe.
Not going to lie, I am not one who tends to show a lot of skin with my clothing choices. I keep my style pretty classic with trendy and practical pieces. I stepped out of my comfort zone with their Black Tie Front Organza Mesh Sleeve Crop Top. This black crop top gives the right amount of coverage without feeling too overexposed. With a tie front design and an organza style mesh sleeve, it pairs perfect with a light pair of high-waisted jeans. It was giving me major 80’s vibes, which is why I think I liked it so much.
The white top I received unfortunately did not fit… which brings me to my thoughts on their sizing. I ordered everything a size up because I had no idea how their UK sizes compared to US sizes. Even with the size chart, I was still very confused, so I ordered everything bigger, hoping it’d fit or I could take it in. The White Ribbed Off The Shoulder Crop Top did not fit at all. I couldn’t get it over my head or on my arms. I would say sizing isn’t very consistent, so I’d recommend going up a size to be safe. I wish the white top worked because it would have been perfect to pair with a comfy pair of sweatpants.
My favorite item by far is their White ‘Beverly Hills 1990’ Oversized T-Shirt. During this time, I love the biker short look, and this oversized t-shirt is the perfect item to pair with it. The fabric is so soft, and I ordered the largest size, so it could hang longer. It’s the perfect shirt to wear working from home or if I am just lounging around the house.
Overall, Femme Luxe’s prices are pretty reasonable and shipping is relatively fast. Since the items were coming from Europe, I was expecting the package to take a few weeks to arrive, but it came in less than a week and a half. The clothes arrived in a cute pink sleeve and everything was packaged nicely.
If you’re on the hunt for some new summer pieces, give Femme Luxe a try! Hope everyone is staying healthy and safe!
I started working out consistently around 4 years ago, and it has changed my life significantly. Not only has it made me feel healthier, it has also given me more energy and has been such a stress reliever. Through my years of working out, I’ve found that finding workout wear that fits into my routine is tricky. Workout clothes are either too expensive, not comfortable, do not fit properly or are poor quality. That’s why I am teaming up with Yvette Sports to share comfortable and practical workout wear. All products featured in this post was gifted to me by Yvette Sports.
The two pieces I am in love with are their Shift Light – Women’s Light Support Leggings and their Sculpt Women’s High Support Sports Bra. The leggings are high-waisted and made of advanced lycra fabric, which has strong elasticity with stretch-ability of up to 600% and are not see through (SO IMPORTANT!) The leggings are also breathable, making it comfortable when working out and sweating. The sports bra has Cool-max Technology, a stylish red ribbon at the back and anti-skid shoulder straps, which are perfect if you lift weights. It also contains smooth elastic bands that resist chafing.
The sports bra is perfect for girls looking for some extra support. While it is slightly padded, the bra itself isn’t stiff. I would recommend going up a size, if you tend to be larger in the band area. I don’t wear sports bras by themselves when I go to the gym. I always have some sort of t-shirt or tank over them. This bra doesn’t feel uncomfortable under layers and moves with you. The leggings is what I was most excited about because it is rare you find great workout leggings. These have the softest fabric, making it perfect for the gym and also hanging around. They do ride down slightly, so just be mindful when picking a size. This is a pair that I will need to get in black!
Now for the best part! Yvette has given me a coupon code to share with my followers! Use code kaner10 for a discount on your next purchase.

Workout wear doesn’t have to be uncomfortable! I finally feel like I have found pieces that fit and work with my workout routine.
I recently received a package from the website ToSave.comand wanted to review the items I got in the mail! All products featured in this post was gifted by ToSave.com.
ToSave.com offers inexpensive fashion, beauty, and electronic items for any need. The company is based out of China, and the website is set up very similar to Amazon. When I first looked at the items, they all had Pinterest images to represent each piece, which seemed promising. The styles were cute, and I was curious to see how the items looked.
A month went by, and I finally received my package! The items looked identical to the pictures on the website, but with some differences. The quality and fabric was slightly less than what I was expecting. The burgundy swimsuit is very thin, and also is not made up of a material that would be waterproof . It also claimed to be push-up, but there is no padding. In addition, I was so sad that none of the pieces fit me properly. I ordered a large in all the pieces, because of the fit and look, but they ended up not fitting like a normal large usually would. The swimsuit did not go far enough up my torso to cover my chest, and the off the shoulder shirt did not look properly sewn to be an off the shoulder shirt. The white lace top is the one piece that worked out perfectly, and looks perfect with some ripped denim.
I was really excited to try out these items, but wish they worked better for me. Their pieces are adorable, but just beware that some of the sizes are unpredictable and may not fit properly.
In conjunction with my last post, I filmed a video review on how I felt about my Grace and Stella Co. brush. I go into even more detail about the product and how it helped me! If you are interested in purchasing one of my favorite new products, click the link down below! All products featured in the post was gifted by Grace and Stella.
I don’t know about you, but I suffer from extreme dryness in the winter time. My whole body is one big flaky mess. But I have officially found my go to brush from Grace and Stella Co. to whisk the dryness away. All products featured in this post was gifted by Grace and Stella.
I partnered with Grace and Stella Co. for this post to show you how one product can get rid of even the toughest dry skin on your body. The 2-IN-1 BODY EXFOLIATING BRUSH & MASSAGER is made with natural boar bristles for effective dry brushing to help circulation and lessen the appearance of cellulite, but is also great wet with your favorite scrub or cleanser to exfoliate your whole body. The product is $24.95 and comes with a 16” long handle and strap, a free body cream (which is my favorite), travel bag and shower hook. The device is portable, easy to use, and great if you have sensitive skin.
I have been using this product for 2 weeks and have noticed such a difference. My main problem area is my legs. They were so dry and flaky that when I would take my leggings off, I could visibly see the dead skin… YUCK! But after using the brush wet with my daily cleanser, followed by the lotion, my skin felt instantly smooth and flake free. The brush worked perfectly in combination with shaving, allowing for a closer shave, getting rid of that dead skin, allowing you to get straight to the hair follicle. The lotion by itself is also to die for! It smells like lavender and is a non-greasy formula, which is a must for me. The company should seriously sell it in a larger tube separately!
The only complaint I have for this product is that the hook does not stick to the shower wall. I am not sure if the suction cup on mine doesn’t work properly, but I have not been able to attach it to my wall without having it fall.
Besides that, I will continue to use this product all over my body for a flake free winter and even into the summer!
Grace and Stella Co. are also holding a giveaway to win one of their foot masks!
