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

  • Enjoying a wonderful long weekend trip to Wisconsin visiting Jake’s older brother and enjoying allll the cheese curds 🧀
. 
I’m working on limiting my social media activity and only taking one picture to capture a moment instead of 30 trying to get them perfect. It’s been a nice side effect of minimalism and it’s helping me learn to not be so concerned with what others think, stop playing the comparison game, and live in the moment. I’m much more relaxed and happy without all the unnecessary drama and stress of the world. Definitely recommend trying it out if you struggle with anxiety like I do ❤️
  • I’m not a big selfie person so here’s one with my little ham to make it better while I show you my new hair🤳🏻
. 💇🏻‍♀️ I’ve cut off 8+ inches of my hair since my wedding. This last cut over the weekend was the big finale, an additional 4 inches off. Doing it slowly made it less of a shock and helped me confirm it was really what I wanted. This is the shortest my hair has been since I was 5!! My mom used to cut it and gave me a mullet once sooo I’ve kept it long ever since 🤣🤦🏻‍♀️ My sister @juliestanbridge loooves to tell that story to anyone that’ll listen. I was definitely ready for a change and I’m thrilled with this length. .

I’m really enjoying the simplicity of less makeup and less hair care lately 😌 it takes me 15 minutes to wake up and get ready every morning, including making coffee and my lunch! I feel more beautiful in my own skin which has been a life long struggle, laugh lines and all. This simple life is more than I ever expected in so many ways and keeps getting better as I go. How could your life be better with less?
  • Today is a happy excuse to share some wedding photos ❤️ .

I’d be so lost without my mom and sister. I’m so blessed to have such a close relationship with them both. It wasn’t always this way but I’m glad that as I grew up, I realized how much I needed them both. They’re my rocks. .

I’m thankful for my mother-in-law because she’s accepted me wholeheartedly into the family and she raised my amazing husband and taught him how to treat me. Not everyone is so lucky to actually love their in-laws so I really appreciate this and don’t take it for granted!
.

I’m thankful for my Godmother, Kim, my best friend Courtney’s momma who is literally like a second mom to me and I love her whole family dearly ❤️ they’re a constant blessing. .

And Happy Mother’s Day to the moms out there like me who hold their babies in their hearts instead of their arms 👼🏻 You are celebrated today, too! #happymothersday
  • Getting rid of the extra stuff in our house we never used has been the best way of keeping it clean and organized. Everything has a place. There are still pictures on the walls and decor items on the shelves, but I don’t feel the need to have EVERY INCH decorated like I used to. It’s nice to have more open space, it looks and feels bigger! .

I always thought I was disorganized, but the truth is I just had too much stuff. Because let’s be real, if organizing your stuff actually worked, wouldn’t you be done by now?
  • Happy Saturday ❤️ I’ve been super inspired to write lately so I’m working on multiple blog posts. It feels so good to write again.
.

When I started talking about minimalism instead of fashion, my engagement dropped dramatically. Like, 70% probably. It was pretty upsetting in the beginning, not gonna lie. .

But likes and comments and followers aren’t what matter. The people that followed me before followed me for something I’m not talking about anymore, so that change is really ok with me. I’m appealing to a new audience now and I love that. I want to provide value to you guys, it’s the only thing that motivates me. I don’t post just to post anymore. I just had to realize that the people that are left still want to hear what I have to say, so I keep going for you! Thank you for being here ❤️
  • I’ve really been enjoying my time away from social media, but I also still enjoy mindlessly scrolling through pretty pictures sometimes. Life is all about balance. I see a lot of my fellow bloggers also struggle with the balance of creating a successful page and knowing when to give ourselves a break. It can be overwhelming! .

I put up a new blog post today about why I decided to give up on my shopping ban and instead focus on a LOW buy year and not a NO buy year. The main reason is it makes more sense for my life because things have come up and I don’t want to guilt myself into not buying something if it will make my life a bit easier. Minimalism is not about deprivation, it’s about intentionality. You can see the post at DaniThom.com via the link in my bio ❤️
