One of the things I love about being a blogger is discovering and connecting with different brands. Even in this day and age when internet shopping is so prevalent and there are forums dedicated to the latest and greatest beauty and fashion products, it can still be hard to learn about new companies. I’m part of Rakuten Affiliate Network and they’ve recently started a program where they send out a RAN Bonus Box each quarter to introduce their bloggers to new brands and begin partnerships. It’s a really fun program and I was fortunate enough to receive their Q1 RAN Bonus Box which featured products from six different brands, most of which were new to me.
The first product I received was this Avesha Yoga Tank from Sweaty Betty. I have to admit, my main motivation behind exercising is getting to wear cute workout clothes (I can’t be the only one, right?). It may sound weird, but it makes me feel a lot better about working out if my clothes are super cute and color-coordinated. This linen tank is seriously soooo soft, I want to wear it all the time! The Knock Out slogan on the front is fun and I love the black stripe along the back. The low cut out back is perfect for pairing with strappy sports bras and this tank is so comfy. It’s perfect for Blogilates (my exercise of choice).
Next I opened the Happy Nugget Bracelet from Folli Follie. This bracelet is a mix of braided white leather with rose gold hardware. I love the little details like the round beads that you can move around and the crystal and “FF” charms that hang from the clasp. I love this chic and understated bracelet and the rose gold looks so pretty with the white leather. This is perfect for spring and summer and I like wearing it by itself or stacked with other bracelets. The quality is really nice too, I can tell I’ll be wearing this for years to come.
I also received a code to redeem a One Day Jus Cleanse and Probiotic Coffee from Jus by Julie. Ordering was pretty easy- I selected the Jus Cleanse and Probiotic Coffee (I picked vanilla) and picked the day I wanted it delivered. The juices are numbered so you know the order to drink them in and you can start the cleanse immediately or freeze the juices for a few days if you need to. The Jus Cleanse contains six juices that you drink in order to restart your body and remove toxins. I thought the juices were pretty good although not quite as sweet as I was expecting. I tried Sweet Spin (very strong kale flavor), Spicy Pomegranate (tasted like watery pink lemonade with an intense spicy-in-the-back-of-my-throat aftertaste), Dr. Green (greens with a bit of ginger and lemon), Chia Berry (acidic-in-a-good-way berry blend), PB & Jus (tasted just like natural peanut butter), X-Treme Greens (a citrus-y green mix with a nice spinach flavor), and the Vanilla Probiotic Coffee (very strong with a great vanilla flavor). Overall I really liked the juices. They all had interesting flavors and were pretty filling. I definitely felt better and more energetic after drinking them.
My RAN Bonus Box also came with a small backpack and hair tie from Six:02. I think these bags are great for traveling and I really like the outside pocket for a water bottle. And I can never have too many hair ties! The bright yellow of this one is fun and will be easy to spot in my bag.
My box contained a $50 gift certificate for Dawgs. I had a hard time narrowing down what to get but I ended up with their Fleece Leggings in Black and their Bendable Ballet Flats in White. I live in fleece-lined leggings and tights during the winter and so I can never have too many! These leggings are great quality- they’re super thick and warm. I also wanted to try some foldable flats. I usually wear flats anyway but I love the idea of having flats that I can carry with me in my bag and throw on if my feet are tired of my shoes. These are super compact and come with a small drawstring bag to store them in.
The last item in my RAN Bonus Box was a set of White Topaz Pearl Drop Earrings from Links of London. I have a lot of pearl jewelry so these fit in perfectly in my jewelry box. I love how dainty they are but they still manage to make quite a statement. The white topaz is a great complement to the pearls and I will definitely get a lot of use out of these! They’re just so pretty and I like how they aren’t heavy so they’re very comfortable to wear.
I’m so happy that I was chosen to receive the Q1 RAN Bonus Box and I’m grateful to all the brands that participated. The Sweaty Betty tank is so soft and I love wearing it. The Folli Follie bracelet is timeless and the colors are perfect for spring. I really enjoyed doing the Jus Cleanse from Jus by Julie and the backpack and hair tie from Six:02 will definitely get some use. I like my fleece leggings and bendable flats from Dawgs and the Links of London earrings are so beautiful! I hope I’m fortunate enough to receive another RAN Bonus Box in the future, it was so much fun discovering new brands and trying these products!
