Get Your Skin Drunk with Drunk Elephant Skin Care!

Hello Again! It’s been a hot minute since my last post (Colourpop link here), but I’m back with a short and sweet review on two really popular Drunk Elephant skincare items. In the last few years I’ve been more into skincare than ever before. Maybe it’s because I’m in my early 30’s and small signs of aging […]

Downsize With ThredUP

What Is ThredUP? Ok, ok. After my whole Marie Kondo cleanse I did last year, I am constantly looking through my closet with a “joy” lens. If you have no clue what I was just talking about, check out my on the Marie Kondo journey of tidying here. Continuing. If you are anything like me, […]

The Results Are In… My Beauty Box Subscription Dilemma, No More!

As part of the Beauty Box Subscription Dilemma series, I unboxed some of the most popular beauty subscription box services out there! When I launched the project, I listed the boxes I would be reviewing. Unfortunately, I did not get to all of them! I did unbox some boxes that were not on my original […]

Box #6: A {Bonus} Birchbox Unboxing!

I won’t lie, this Birchbox definately fit “me” a little better than the first one, not that I didn’t like the first one (see here). The products in this box were more in line with my beauty needs and wants 🙂 Check out my second unboxing below and remember, if you’ve been considering Birchbox, use […]

Box #8: [Video] Testtube Beauty Unboxing & First Impression

Alas, I have made it to Testtube Beauty. At $30/box or shall I say, “tube,” this is the priciest subscription service of the bunch. However, this isn’t a monthly box…you receive your tube every two month, so that averages to about $15/month. Is it worth the $$? You be the judge!

Box #6: Birchbox Unboxing & First Impression

Ok, so finally Birchbox. Like ipsy, Birchbox has a huge following. They are the matriarch of the beauty box subscription service! Receiving one box from them is not necessarily going to be as worthwhile as becoming a long-term subscriber. Birchbox is supposed to match smarter with time based on reviews and feedback. Here’s my very […]

Box #3: [Video] October BeautyDNA Unboxing

BeautyDNA nailed it, again! They matched me with an awesome product that I can really use and benefit from. I’m still testing out my product from my first BeautyDNA box (watch here/read my previous BeautyDNA Boxhere). Again, I am really grateful that that BeautyDNA donated three boxes, or should I say three months worth of […]
