One of the biggest trends I've seen at the gym this summer are mesh leggings. For me, the biggest downside of trends is that they are temporary - by definition they are a change or development in a general direction. That is why when I'm looking to buy trendy items, I don't want to spend a lot... I know that trends are temporary. I purchased a pair of mesh block leggings from SHEIN, and I come to you today with a review on them.
Overall, I really love these leggings and I would recommend them to my friends. I just normally pair them with dark colored panties that are not boy-cut.

While I technically don't keep my vitamins in my closet, I am an affiliate with them, which means that every time someone clicks my link to purchase them, I receive a commission.
I had been using Ritual for nearly three months before I became an affiliate with them. I had been looking for a new multi-vitamin for a few months, and considering that I have a condition known as MTHFR, it was a struggle for me because I can only process methyl-folate. Most vitamin companies that make multi-vitamins use folic acid, which is harder for our bodies to process, and for people with MTHFR like me, it's impossible to process folic acid at all. Ordering Ritual through their website was easy, and three days later a box arrived in my mailbox with my vitamins.
Cons of Ritual
I have to honestly say, the only con I can see with Ritual is the price. It costs $30 per month, so your cost is about $1/day. Personally, the vitamins I replaced with Ritual did cost more, so for me it wasn't a true con, but of course, every person's financial situation is different. You take two vitamins per day, and while you can take them at different times, they do recommend taking them together at the same time.
Pros of Ritual
I fell in love with Ritual, which is why when I learned that they had an affiliate program I felt compelled to apply. Within the first month, my baby hairs started growing back, I had more energy, and overall I felt healthier. The vitamins are also infused with a minty tab, which makes them easier to swallow and there's no weird after taste. Their ingredients come from trusted sources, and are non-GMO, vegan, and gluten/allergy free. They also do not contain synthetic fillers or colorants. Also, these vitamins are made in the USA, which I personally love because I love to support American businesses.

If you're like me, you wait until the last minute possible to do swimsuit shopping. I dread all of it - picking out a million cute suits just to find they make me look like a can of busted biscuits because I went too hard during bulking season and didn't take lifting season as serious as I should have. I've got a total "mom bod" and while I'm a firm believer in the thought that the beach will take whichever body I give it, I still want that body to look as good as possible. But this year is different - this year I'm working with two companies that carry swimsuits, and so I decided to use my affiliate perks to order a few in hopes of falling in love with something. I chose my favorites and compiled my findings.
Sunny Co. Tropicana Swimsuit
While this swimsuit is my personal favorite, it is also the most "cheeky" of my purchases. It features an upbeat green tropical leaf print, and for the $74.99 price-tag, it is extremely well made. The top and bottom can also thankfully be ordered in different sizes and I was able to easily use the sizing chart to figure out my size. As much as I love this suit, I don't know if I will be wearing it yet this summer.
SHEIN Tie Dye Print Crisscross Bikini
When I started shopping at SHEIN, I was skeptical. The clothes look so cute on the website, and the prices seem too good to be true. Of course, I had to know the truth - was it too good to be true? For me, it's worth the risk. This tie dye suit is also well-made, and I honestly can't believe I snagged it for $8. The only downside of this suit was that they require you to order the same size top and bottom. Many shoppers noted that the top was too loose, and while that was initially the case for me, I was able to adjust the sides which helped with fit. I will be wearing this suit for sure this year.
SHEIN Pineapple Bikini
I love this super cute bikini, but if I'm being completely honest, I'll probably be wearing the tie dye bikini or pairing these bottoms with the Tropicana top this summer, which was part of the reason for this purchase since the bottoms do match the top I already had at that point. The swimsuit bottoms do not have a bikini liner and the top has a clasp that I wasn't expecting. But, once the suit was on, it was extremely comfortable and has the softest material of all three swimsuits.
