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

  • Simple is always better. I tried so hard to figure out what I was going to wear for Easter. I spent a good hour trying things on the week before. I sent my sister tons of pictures asking her thoughts. In the end, I wasn’t really satisfied with any of them for some reason so I decided to just go with an outfit I know I love and feel good in. For some reason wearing white just makes me feel super put together. And I managed to not spill anything on myself or get chocolate on my pants which is a major win y’all. .

We don’t need to overthink things so much. It just causes unnecessary stress. I do like to plan ahead because it saves me time, but I also should have realized sooner that the dress I was trying to make work just wasn’t working. Even though I love that dress, it doesn’t flatter me how I want it to and it might be time to let it go. Don’t be afraid to let go of things that don’t give you exactly what you need. You don’t have to settle, something else will always come along. Or you probably already have something else in your closet (or life, this isn’t limited to clothes!) that’s even better than what you’re trying to make work!
  • Happy Easter 🐰❤️
  • Casual Good Friday ❤️ this was yesterday’s work outfit but I jazzed myself up before we went to church with Jakes mom and stepdad last night. I cried like a baby. Good Friday always both kicks my ass and reminds me how blessed we all are. 
The beautiful KC weather this weekend is so exciting!! I’m so happy when it’s Spring weather 😍 Have a beautiful Saturday!!
  • “There is beauty in simplicity”
My simple wardrobe makes me so happy and I love the seemingly endless possibilities I have with it. Having a love of neutrals really works well for me with this! 
Happy Good Friday ❤️
  • The only things in my life these days are the things I really want there. This isn’t limited to the stuff in my house and the clothes in my closet. This includes my job, relationships, hobbies, everything. I’ve even started eating better as a by-product of simplifying my life and I just feel better over all. .

By removing the things and people that don’t make me happy, I have more time and energy for the things that do that I used to put off and not prioritize like I should have. We spend so much of our lives being “busy”. But what are we busy with? Most of it is actually unimportant when you break it down. .

I say no to things much more now and that allows me to spend more of my time relaxing and enjoying life. I used to constantly feel rushed or like I should be doing something. If I wasn’t moving, I felt like I was wasting my time. But the truth is, resting and just being home with Jake and the boys is my happy place. It brings me so much joy, so that’s what my priority is. .

Having more time to just BE has been amazing. Being more picky in my relationships has helped me really value the ones I hold most dear and has brought me to an amazing new job because I wasn’t willing to settle for anything less. Respect yourself and your time and prioritize the things that matter most to you. Life’s too short to live any other way.
  • “When you love what you have, you have everything you need.” So many wonderful things have happened since I simplified my life. Changing my outlook on life wasn’t really intentional, but I’m so thankful it happened when it did. I was kind of at a breaking point. Fed up with where I was and how things were going with my old job. Struggling with depression and comparison. I knew something had to change but I had no idea what. Simplicity was that thing. .
.
Now, I spend way less time on social media. I deleted Facebook off my phone and haven’t  looked at it in weeks. I’m much happier without it. I read a lot more. I’m getting much better at ignoring the impulse to pick up my phone and when I am on it, to compare my life to the perfect pictures people post. I even cut a few inches off my hair! 💇🏻‍♀️ I want things as easy as they can be right now. It takes a lot of stress out of my life. Try to go a whole weekend without social media and see how awesome it feels!
