Five on Friday: Happy March!

One//Spring is almost here! March is off to a great start! The weather has been perfect and I’m ready for spring and to hit the beach! I’ve been looking at bathing suits and I’m loving the high neck and Midkini tops this season. Here’s some of my favorites: Two//I don’t have a lot planned this weekend and I hope I can keep it that way. Lately, I’ve gone into my weekends thinking that they will be pretty low key and then they end up being really busy! I think I start getting antsy when I don’t have a ton a plans and start making all kinds of them but this weekend I’m determined to have a little R&R. Three//Got a haircut last night! Nothing fancy, […]

An Awesome Birchbox Review

I didn’t get a chance to review my December Birchbox in December because things got too crazy but it was a great box with some products I fell in love with so I definitely wanted to share even if it is a little late! Here’s the products that are MUST BUY’s:  Eyeko Fat Liquid Eyeliner – $16 I’m obsessed with this eyeliner. First of all, the sample was the full size product which was a huge win! I normally am not coordinated enough for liquid eyeliner but the marker-like tip on this one makes it so much easier. My favorite part about this eyeliner is that it stays on without wearing off or smudging all day but then comes of so easy with makeup wipes. […]

October Birchbox Review

I technically got two Birchboxes in October since I subscribed in late September and my September box didn’t come until the first week of October. My first box was pretty good but this one definitely topped it! Here are the products I got in my October Birchbox: Darphin STIMULSKIN PLUS Multi-Corrective Divine Cream – Dry Skin  -$295 Verdict: Will Not Buy This was a thick and creamy moisturizer that went on my skin like butter. It was a decent sample size and I’m happy that I got to try it. It made my skin feel hydrated and soft but there was nothing “divine” or magical about that would make me consider paying that price. It also has a sort of chemical-like smell that I didn’t like. Smashbox […]

My First Birchbox Review

I finally decided to jump on the subscription box train and order my first Birchbox. I have been getting more and more into makeup and skincare in the last year or so but I still rarely branch out of my comfort zone. So, I love the idea of getting to test out a bunch of new products for only $10 a month. I ordered my first box in mid-September but I didn’t get it until October 3rd. I guess it takes them a while to process and ship your first box but usually they come at the beginning of the month because I got my October Birchbox around the 10th. I basically got two in the same week which was fun, I like the fact […]

Friday Favorites

Happy Friday! I’m so excited that we’ve made it to the weekend, especially since I have a four day weekend thanks to my cousin’s wedding on Monday! Here are some of my favorites from this week: 1. Favorite Verse “For at one time you were darkness, but now you are light in the Lord. Walk as children of light (for the fruit of light is found in all that is good and right and true), and try to discern what is pleasing to the Lord.” -Ephesians 5:8-10 Lately I’ve been faced with decisions on what paths I should take. Like starting this blog, for example. I wanted to start a blog for a long time but I had so many doubts. I wondered would I […]
