The Ring Boxes Review #4

Is anyone else thrown off by how quickly time seems to pass? It’s already the end of May! I will be getting my next Ring Box in 2 weeks but I’ve been too behind to post this one haha.

For anyone who doesn’t know, The Ring Boxes is a bridal subscription box that comes once a month and contains a bunch of bridal goodies to spoil you with. They offer month to month, 3-month, 6-month or 12 month options. You can read more about them here.

This month, I got another awesome workout tank because who doesn’t need more of those?! I got some bath salts, which I love to take baths so I’m really looking forward to that. I love the Bride pen and the pencils are cute and fun, I’ll keep them on my desk at work. And lastly, the vow booklets which will really come in handy when we actually start writing our vows (whenever that is..not sure when to start haha). Every month comes with new recipes, and these ones look pretty good.

Everyone likes to receive presents, don’t they?? I like getting these boxes every month and not knowing what’s coming. I am on their email list so sometimes they do send out sneak peaks of what’s coming in the next box. This month I knew I would be getting the diamond top pen, which I’m excited to have as my office had a lot of rose gold accessories and it’ll match perfectly.

If you’re thinking about getting it for yourself, or as a gift for someone else, I do think it’s worth getting. I got it as a gift and I’m very thankful for it because it helps me to really enjoy this engagement period. It’s flying by so quickly but while it’s happening, I’ll have to just soak it up since I’ll never get to be engaged again.

If you have any questions regarding the boxes, please feel free to reach out!

Have a WONDERFUL Memorial Day! Be sure to thank the Veterans in your life for their service to our wonderful country as they’re the reason for this wonderful 3 day weekend.

XO,

  • “Maybe the life you’ve always wanted is buried under everything you own” -Joshua Becker

This quote hits home because I never realized how cluttered our apartment was and how that clutter, even though it was organized, was holding us back in unexpected ways. 
This weekend we re-arranged our house a bit and I’m so in love with the results. We used to have our computer desks both in our bedroom. Although our room is pretty big, having so much furniture made it feel small and cramped. Not at all relaxing. 
Since I’ve been getting rid of things like it’s my job, I sold all of our guest room furniture except the bed, leaving a whole lot of space in there. We moved the desks into that room and it made both rooms feel like a whole new space!! It’s amazing what happens when you let go of things. Happier, quieter, less cluttered. Have a wonderful Monday!

Happy Friday!!! I’m so excited for the weekend 🙌🏻I love this quote because people sometimes think having and buying more will make them better somehow. Happier, more stylish, cooler, more liked. .

Sadly, in high school, this was true. When I started wearing brand name clothes, people literally treated me completely different. I got invited to more things, different people started talking to me. It was crazy. But those people were not my real friends and I literally haven’t spoken to any of them since high school. So, goes to show how those things don’t actually matter!! Have an awesome weekend 😘
  • In honor of #nationalproposalday I want to give a shoutout to my handsome husband @jacob.thompson87 for totally nailing my engagement ring 💜😍

 I knew I wanted something unique with a colored stone. I didn’t want a big expensive diamond or a ring that would look like anyone else’s. Jake knows my favorite color is purple so he got me a lavender sapphire with a petal halo. I also love my simple twisted wedding band. I took this picture on our honeymoon because I was so happy to finally be able to wear them together! I love how they complement each other. I never want to take them off. Have a wonderful Friday Eve!
  • “Forget the Sales price. Everything is 100% off when you don’t buy it.” .
As a fun challenge for myself, I’m going to do a shopping ban. If you’re familiar with the book “The Year of Less”, Cait goes an entire year without buying anything unnecessary (actually she ends up doing a second year after). I just finished reading it and I love the idea of not buying anything new that I don’t need. 
While I’ve been purging, I’ve seen just how much I really have. There isn’t anything I need. The sales price used to get me. That seductive little red sticker would catch my attention and convince me I needed that piece in my closet because it’s such a great deal. BUT it’s not if you don’t need it. Save your money for things you truly love and put thought into buying, not impulse buys that will hang unworn in your closet.
  • 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!
  • “If you don’t have time for things that matter, stop doing things that don’t.” - @bemorewithless .
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.
