Birchbox Haul + Birthday Month

You know you are obsessed with Birchbox when you buy some of their branded apparel. Yep, I bought a pair of their Diamond Yoga Pants. They are super comfy! and I really like that the logo or band isn’t plastered all over it like some brands do. They have a cute Birchbox square on the back of the left leg. 🙂 I also bought a Spornette Air Motion Brush by Grange Snell to see if it’ll work with my tangled up hair. I seems to really work and get all the hairs that are waiting to shed out of there. I haven’t used it with wet hair yet, but I really like it with my dry hair.

Since those two items were over $50, I was able to get the special edition Birchbox Birthday Box. Yes, September is my birthday month but it’s also the birthday month of Birchbox. They are 4 years old this month! It was a box with 4 secrete products and this is what I got in it.

#VowVoxBox from Influenster

voxbox-blogimage-popup2This last week, I received my second #voxbox from Influenster. I was SO excited! I love being able to review products because most of the time I haven’t tried them. I’m a person who will buy something because it’s new or the packaging looks great, so I would say I am a perfect candidate to review new and upcoming products.

What’s in my Makeup Bag?

Amy7Everyone is a little nosey, right? Especially when it comes to what is in something’s makeup bag. Personally, I LOVE the ‘what’s in my…?’ videos or blog posts, and lately, it seems like I keep getting asked what kind of makeup I have on. This may look like a lot of makeup and products to some people, but I only wear a “full face” about once or twice a week. Since I work from home, I don’t need to wear this all the time, but when I do, these are things that I love to use.
