Pinup by Liz reviews: Influenster Cherish VoxBox

Have you heard about Influenster yet?  It's a great website full of product reviews.  Anyone can sign up for an account and rate and review products.  The more you participate, the higher your chances are of receiving a VoxBox in the mail.  What is a VoxBox?  It's a box full of complimentary products to try out and review! Some of the products are sample size, while others are full size.  It's so exciting to get it in the mail!  You can sign up too, just use my referral link by clicking here!  


This was my second time to receive a VoxBox, and the box I received this time was called the Cherish VoxBox. (To see my first VoxBox experience, click here.) It seemed to be geared towards moms and it had items in it that were useful to my whole family, and now that we've tried them all I'm sharing my thoughts with you! 


Here is the box after it first came in, with everything included.  Look at all the full size samples! The neat thing about this box was that there was something in it for everyone in my household, even the dogs! 


The first product I tried was the Pantene foam conditioner.  Although I've used Pantene shampoo and conditioner plenty throughout my life, I've never tried this foam conditioner.  I really like it!  It's not too heavy but works great with my thick hair.  Below is a photo with my hair styled after I had used it a few times. 



They also sent me some Mott's Sensibles Apple Raspberry juice.  I'm sure this was sent to me because I have kids, but mine are older and don't really drink juice anymore.  This juice has less sugar than the leading juice, which seemed like a healthy option for an adult beverage mixer, so that's exactly what I did, and it was delicious.  

 I had my cute hubby try out the Dove Men Care line of spray deodorant. It smelled really great and he said it felt great too!

 This is a stock photo, but I was sent a sample size of the Vera Wang Embrace perfume.  It smelled so wonderful and I will definitely consider purchasing a full size bottle.



My dogs loved the dog toy from Barkbox.  Junebug loved it so much she kept trying to sneak it outside!  

So there's everything I received this time in my Influenster VoxBox.  To see individual posts about each product, check me out on Instagram at @pinupbyliz!

Upcoming shoots and events {Tulsa boudoir and pin up photography studio}

It's been a little while since I posted an informational blog post, and so much is going on that I thought it was time for an update! First, check out our upcoming mini sessions! On June 30th we are shooting in a beautiful midcentury modern home located in Tulsa.  A full pin up makeover is included in the package with hair and makeup by Bootleg Betty and Katie Belle, and I help you throughout the shoot with pinup perfect posing!  You can choose to pose in the kitchen, the wet bar, or the living room! The owner of this home has meticulously decorated everything perfectly 1950s so stepping into this home feels like stepping back in time, and it will make the perfect backdrop for a pin up or vintage styled photo shoot.  Here is the flier.  As I write this we only have 3 spots left so email me at liz@photosbyliz.com quickly to book!


I don't know if we will ever go back to shoot here, so book it while you have a chance! Here are a few more photos from the last time we shot there. 






Also, this September, Cherry Dollface is coming to Tulsa on her last tour!  If you haven't heard of Cherry Dollface, check out her Youtube channel here. She is a very experienced pin up model from LA with a huge social media following, and she is much deserving of it because she is an expert at what she does!  At these shoots she will be doing hair and makeup on all clients who book, and then you will do a shoot with me!  The first day of the shoot sold out within 2 days of announcing it, so we decided to add a second date, 9/17.  As I type this, we only have 3 spots left in this shoot, so email me asap to get in on this shoot before you miss out!  


Since I've had the privilege of teaming up on shoots with Cherry multiple times over the years, here are a few examples of hair and makeup she has done on Tulsa clients in the past!




You don't want to miss out on either of these last chance events, so email me at liz@photosbyliz.com to book your shoot today!
