Hello all you lovely people, I hope you all had a wonderful weekend, and a good start to your week, boo for Monday, right? Oh well, got to get er done! I have been so incredibly busy with work, no time for blogging once again, but this week it is a slow week, so I plan on doing lots of catching up, I am going to Las Vegas again for work at the end of this week, yeah, so excited for some sunshine, and pool time! I plan on having pre scheduled posts though for next week, so I have lots of catching up to do, I need to work on being more consistent, that’s for sure, and something I know I need to work, and make time on! Thank you for your continued support, and hanging in there, and reading my posts, I love you all for that!! I’ve got some fun posts coming up this week, starting with today’s post on the Sephora play box for May 2017, it’s a pretty good box, and I am pretty satisfied with it, so even though it’s late, I still wanted to share it with you all, I hope you enjoy, and let me know if you have any questions, etc! The Sephora play box is $10 a month, which includes shipping, it’s a great deal, and I definitely recommend it, it’s been really good lately, and offers a great variety of products, and brands to try out! It’s such a fun way to experiment, and sample different brands that I normally wouldn’t be able to try, or wouldn’t be interested in trying as well, so like I said, it’s definitely worth a try, if you haven’t subscribed already!! You can sign up for it on the Sephora website, at Subscribe Here for Sephora Play Box! Thanks for reading, and let’s dive right into what I got in my Sephora Play Box!

The Subscription Box: Play! by Sephora

The Cost: $10

The Products: Five deluxe samples plus a fragrance sample, a PLAY! BOOK of tips and tricks, and a PLAY! PASS for in-store learning.

Each box comes with a Play! Pass, which is a card you can use at Sephora (in-store) to get 50 extra rewards points, and you can also get one-on-one tutorials and tips of products from a Sephora consultant.

FYI – The box variation I received this month is box ending in #264. I don’t know, or there is no way to know which box you will be receiving until you see the item number when it ships in your account, it varies a lot! To find out which box you’re receiving at the beginning of each month, follow these instructions:
“If you log in through a browser, not the app, and go to my account > account details > online orders and open the play! Order Details, you can see the “item number” next to the image.”

Christophe Robin Cleansing Purifying Scrub with Sea Salt – 1.35 fl oz, Value $9.50

Sunday Riley Ceramic Slip Clay Cleanser – 1 oz, Value $10.71

TreStique Highlight & Perfect Multipurpose Stick – .05 oz?, Value $8?

NudeStix Magnetic Matte Lip Color in Greystone – Value $9?

Grande Cosmetics GrandeLIPS Hydrating Lip Plumper – sample size, Value $4?

Maison Margiela Replica Beach Walk – sample vial, Value ?

My Review: Wow, see I told you this was a good box! I am really glad that I got this box, the overall value is around $41, and it only cost me $10 (shipping included) I think that is an amazing value this month. This variation was perfect for me, Sephora is getting better at picking the right products for me,  yeah! I really enjoy everything in the box, the only product that was new to me, that I haven’t tried out was the Grande Lips lip plumper in clear. I have heard of the brand, but I haven’t tried it until getting it in the box, I like it, but it wasn’t very plumping, I am used to products like too faced lip injection, or buxom lip plumping glosses, this was a nice gloss, but it didn’t really do anything for my lips, I will continue to use it though as a clear gloss, or clear topper. Everything else I have tried, and really enjoy a ready. I especially love the Christophe Robin cleansing purifying scrub with sea salt, I have tried this before, and loved the way it made my hair feel, this brand has really impressed me with all their products that I have tried, I may even consider purchasing a full size at some point, I also really love the way it smells, it’s the perfect beachy scent! This month’s box overall was great, I am excited to continue to try out the products! Can’t wait to see what next months box will bring!

Walmart Beauty Box Spring 2017 Review

Screen Shot 2017-04-11 at 2.52.10 PM

Hi there all my lovies!! Welcome to the blog today, and happy hump day, lol, let’s jump right into today’s blog, because I only have a limited amount of time today (it’s nap time) so I am going to rush through this blog post today, I hope that’s okay. I just received my Walmart Beauty Box for Spring a few days ago, and wanted to get it up for you all as soon as possible, in case it’s still available, and you wanted to get one! The Walmart Beauty Box is $5 (that covers shipping, the box is free) this box is all beauty related, and is shipped quarterly, which is 4 boxes a year, 1 box per season. When you sign up for the box, it is automatically paid, and the $5 is deducted from your account for the box. I have been a subscriber since the first box was released, and think it’s a great valued box, although I do feel like the brands repeat quite a bit unfortunately, and wish they would get new brands to be in the box. I love trying out new products, hint to why I am a beauty blogger, lol, right? so this box has always been good for me, and a good deal, because otherwise I wouldn’t have the opportunity to try out these products. Everything that is sampled in the box can be found at Walmart, which I shop at anyways, so it is very easy to pick up the full size products, if I end up liking them, which is nice. Let’s check out everything that I got in my Spring beauty box, and fyi the box will vary depending on your age, I am 35, so I am not sure which box I get, and may have changed my age at some point to get the younger box lol, which I believe is called the “trendsetter” but, who knows! What do you think of the box? Do you think it is worth the $5 quarterly? Do you end up using the products, and or coupons? Sometimes I feel like I won’t use some of the products, and I am not a huge couponer either so I feel like those get wasted in the box. If you would like to sign up here is the link 🙂 Enjoy the pictures, I will be back on Friday with another post, really trying to do the 3 posts a week, and stick to it! Thanks as always for your support!

Walmart Beauty Box Winter 2016 Review

Hi there lovies, I hope you are all having a wonderful day, and staying warm, it is really cold here, straight chilly, so I thought it would be a great day to review the walmart beauty box for Winter, if you are unfamiliar with it, it’s a quarterly subscription box that cost $5 per quarter, the box is actually free, but they charge $5 to ship the box. It’s a great way to try new products that are launching, or new to walmart. They send deluxe, and sometimes full size samples, which is great. They really just want to get these products out there for people to try. I love walmart beauty box, and have had an excellent experience with them, I have been subscribed for over 2 years now, ever since they first launched the subscription. I have really enjoyed this subscription, and always end up trying out, and using all the products so it’s a win, win. It’s always great because it comes with coupons to use toward purchasing the full size products, yet another win, win! I definitely will continue to subscribe, review, and let you know what I think about this box! Like I said this is not a monthly box, it is quarterly, so it comes 4 times a year, so basically you are paying $20 a year to get some great samples to try out. I highly recommend subscribing! You have nothing to loose for $5, even if you give it a try, and then cancel right? If you would like to see all the previous box reviews, feel free to search “walmart” in the search bar to check them out. I think I have reviewed all of them so far, maybe not, but I think I have 🙂 Enjoy. Happy Sampling. I also want to mention that there are variations to this box according to your profile, and age. I am not sure which box I get, I think I may have changed my age at some point to see what comes in the different boxes, lol. Thanks for reading!

Play by Sephora December Subscription Box Review

Hello there lovies!! Happy Tuesday, but it really feels like Monday huh? Happy New Year!! I took the last week off, not really intentionally, but I met my goal on Christmas of posting 5 times a week until Christmas, and was ready for a little break, it has been a super busy week with work, pretty  much non stop, but that’s okay, it kept me really busy. This week has literally flown by, no idea how that happened, December is the busiest time of the year for me, busy, busy! I am so proud of myself to have met my goal, and now I am ready to be back at blogging regularly. Yeah, blogging 5 days a week has really taught me a lot, and showed me that I am able to achieve goals, and fall in love with blogging again, which is so exciting! I really do enjoy it, as always my favorite part is interacting with all my readers (you guys rock) so thank you so much for all your support over the past month! 

Today I am here to share with you my Play by Sephora box. I want to say upfront that this will be my last box. I canceled my subscription, I may change my mind, but for now, I decided the best thing to do for me right now to save some money for the 2017 year is to cancel most of my subscription boxes, so I have slowly been picking, and choosing which ones to cancel. I was so sad to cancel this one, because it has been one of my favorites. I feel like the samples aren’t for me anymore. I have so many samples already, and am trying to get through what I have. Another big reason I am canceling is because I feel like the samples are repeating, and are getting small, I think that Sephora is getting comfortable with these play boxes, and what they put in them. Regardless, I don’t think it’s worth the money, the $10 anymore sadly. I also feel like you can get a lot of these samples for free, or as gifts with purchases, etc. Regardless, this is my opinion, let me know what you think about Play by Sephora. The best thing in this month’s box is the dry bar dry shampoo. I like it, and it works well for my hair type, but I only will be able to use it a couple times because it’s so small. Kinda bummed about the sizes of samples in this month’s box. Let’s check out what I got in my box for December.

Screen Shot 2016-11-26 at 1.30.46 PM.png

Hello there lovies! Happy Monday! I hope everyone had a wonderful and happy Thanksgiving holiday! I had a great one, and am so blessed to have such an amazing family! #thankful #blessed that’s for sure! I had so much fun playing with my nephews! I am also proud of myself that I am getting back into blogging, and forming a new habit! I still have work to do, and am excited that I met my goal for the week of posting 5 times a week, yeah for meeting goals, and getting it done! Thanks for all your continued support as well, I am so very thankful for growth, and my followers, and readers, so thank you from the bottom of my heart! 

I am here to share with you today my sephora play subscription box for November! This box was one of my favorite ones so far that I have received. I am so glad that they keep being good products each month to try, I knew this subscription box was going to amazing, because what products that sephora carries aren’t? Right? I am so glad that I subscribed! I love, and really appreciate the huge variety of brands, and items that come in the box every month. My favorite product this month that I received is the product by estee edit. I have been really wanting to try more from this brand, because I keep hearing positive, and amazing things about the new line at sephora. This makeup remover definitely doesn’t disappoint, it works so well at removing my eye makeup, it’s pretty remarkable! My mascara, and eyeshadow was completely gone, I see a full size in my near future of this! I also was really excited to receive the shadow stick by Laura Mercier. I love this brand, it’s one of my favorites, has been for a long time. This shadow stick is in a beautiful shade, and it glides on so smooth, and gives the perfect amount of shimmer, and lasts all day! I am loving everything in this box this month. If your not a subscriber, and are a fellow beauty lover, I highly suggest subscribing, it’s been superb so far, and enjoy using all the products, especially the makeup!

Yogi Surprise July Jewelry Box Unboxing & Review

Hey, how’s it going everyone? This week has flown by so fast, it’s crazy, okay let’s be real here, July has flown by, how did that even happen? I hope everyone is having a great week, and are ready for the weekend. I have a fun thing planned tonight, that I am excited about, yeah for that 🙂 anyways, I don’t want to jynx it! I have had a busy week, and have had lots of sweet baby & toddler snuggles, which I adore these precious moments!

Today I am reviewing my July yogisurprise box, this is the jewelry box, as you may know there are two different monthly subscription boxes for yogi surprise. I love both of them but sometimes I love one more than the other, which includes this month hands down! They both are great boxes, but this jewelry box is by far my favorite box! The subscription prices will be down below, and more information if you would like as well. I did receive both the lifestyle, and the jewelry boxes for review purposes as always, I am lucky to get these amazing boxes every month, I always get so excited to check them out, it’s like Christmas every month. Each box contains a variety of items, brands, and products, some which are completely new to me, which I love discovering new products, so this is always perfect for me! The jewelry box always includes 2 jewelry pieces, and a treat for eating. Jewelry, and treat, doesn’t get much better than that! The jewelry pieces are always hand crafted and or made, and are very special, and unique every month. This month was my favorite box so far, I love the pieces! The chakra bracelet is literally the cutest, and most high quality bracelet I have ever seen, so well made, and perfect for me, it is already on my wrist as you can see below! I already feel more at ease with it on, and it’s just a daily reminder of spirituality.

Birchbox July 2106 Unboxing & Review

Hello lovies, happy Thursday to all of you, I hope your all excited for the weekend! I always love weekends that’s for sure 🙂 It’s been really hot here, so that’s been nice, I love the sunshine so much, I can’t  get enough! I love summer, and live for the sunshine! I am hoping to be a lot better about blogging next month, so please excuse July got away from me, it flew bye, literally wow! My birchbox this month was a great one, and definitely wanted to share it with you all, I have already started using some of the items in the box, and am loving everything. I have said this before, but birchbox has been doing a wonderful job lately in picking samples that really pertain to me, and what I like, and enjoy. Let’s check out what I received this month! My pictures didn’t turn out how I wanted them, but still equally pretty with my bouquets I made, I really enjoy making them with fresh from the garden flowers, so beautiful, and colorful, and they smell amazing!! Enjoy the lovely pictures!

My favorite thing from the box this month was the Smashbox Cosmetics X-rated mascara! This worked amazing, and stayed put on my lashes, it made them look more separated, and long. I really felt like it gave me the va-va-voom affect I was looking for when I put it on, Smashbox Cosmetics has always been one of my favorite mascara brands, love them!  What did you get this month in your birchbox? I love hearing what others received! Comment below, and let me know! 🙂
