November Birchbox Update

So I've received Birchbox and I've tried all the samples so I thought I would share my thoughts.

Before I start, for those of you who have never heard of Birchbox, it's a monthly subscription, for $10 you receive 4 to 5 deluxe designer products.  You can sign up monthly (which is how I signed up) or pay for the year in advance for $110 (one month free) {I might go the year route at some point if I continue to like the samples.}  Also you gain Birchbox points {10 for every box and more when buying items ~ to be cashed it for money off}

So here's my November Birchbox....

1) Anastasia Beverly Hills HydraFull Gloss in Sugar Pink
TOO STICKY!!  Great color though but it's TOO STICKY!!

2) Borghese Fango Brillante Brightening Mud 
Works well ~ I don't really need it but if you
are looking for a brightener definitely try this one!

3) Guerlian Shalimar Parfum Initial
If you love Christian Dior Miss Cherie like me TRY THIS!
I love the way it smells.
{The one in my Birchbox was detective/empty...I emailed
them and they sent me another sample!!!}

4) JR Watkins Foot Repair Salve
Okay ~ I haven't tried this on my feet...
I've been using it on my sandpaper elbows...
which now are SUPER SMOOTH thanks
to Mr. Watkins here!  Out of all the items...
this is the one I want to purchase ~ which is out
of stock on Birchbox and JR Watkin's website!

Treat ~ {You always get your samples plus a treat}
This month I got these cute Coasters!
I love them...I have them on my desk at work!!

Did you get Birchbox?  Did you like your items?
Have I convinced you to sign up?  If so, email me
so I can refer you!!

Also....drumroll...I have been featured on ....

  1. I'm mainly a drugstore products kind of girl but some of these are pretty interesting!

    I also really like the coasters, haha.

    I never pay for soy. I am lactose intolerant but NO, starbucks will not get that extra 99 cents from me.

  2. aki! ~ OMG thanks for reminding me ... I totally forgot to mention the coasters! I LOVE THEM! I have them on my desk at work! Editing my post now!!!

    I am lactose intolerant too...I have a registered Starbucks card that I reload in an effort to not pay for's just amazing how much soy milk costs even at the grocery store! Us non-milk drinkers need to unite!!

    Thanks for commenting!!

12 Things You Need for Successful Weight Loss

1) Get your head in the game! Weight loss doesn't happen without dedication.  You have to have the mindset to get it done.  I've said in the past that motivation for me is like a light switch ... when it's on it is ON.  Even though motivation is one of the key things you need ~ you also need patience, understanding, time, and willpower.  You have to make a commitment to yourself and stick with it. 2) Track your progress! Tracking keeps you honest to yourself.  Without tracking you can sabotage yourself into overeating.  For example, tell me EVERYTHING you ate on Friday off the top of your head, not so easy right?  Also, there are tons of apps out there that you can quickly track or you can do it the old fashion way of writing it down.  Find what works for you and do it daily.  Also, as a rule I normally track my whole day in the morning.  Breakfast, Lunch, Snack & Dinner.  This also keeps me in track.  I can budget out my day and make changes if things arise or when y…

It's Okay Thursday/Hello Monday #5

... to be so productive that you "forget" to blog!

... to have tire issues on April Fool's Day and have to preface every text with ... this is NOT an April Fool's joke.

... to buy 11 items from the dollar days area at Target in an effort to get organized.  {hmmmm ... maybe a good idea for a blog post.}

... to forget to finish this post!

Hello Monday#5 It is truly amazing how much better my makeup and hair look on the weekend. So if you have never tried Starbucks Via Iced Coffee - I highly recommend. So I just watched Into the Woods over the weekend.  Why did the music sound EXACTLY like Sweeney Todd? Seriously I even googled that sh!t and came up with nothing. Why is it on weekends I am all about managing my down time  like it was my last meal or something.  Um no, I cannot do XYZ,  that is a total lack of consideration to my weekend of staying at  home and doing nothing for 48 hours straight.  
How are you doing today?
