My first Birchbox (July 2012)

I recently subscribed to the Birch box monthly boxes. It's $10 a month for a box of samples to regular size lovely different beauty products to try and either fall in love with or not like and not waste money on.

It comes in a cute little box with pink symbols and open it up and it has a card that explains what's inside and how much the price of the product is full price.

First product I pulled out was product from Ada Cosmetics. It's a very slightly shimmery mineral powder bronzer.. I swatched it on my arm and my daughters face. It's very pretty!!!

Also recieved Hello from Harvey Prince perfume. It smells so yummy. It's a intoxicating blend of juicy Meyer lemon, white grapefruit, and pink plumeria. Smells super yummy and fresh!

Third product I opened was by Jouer lip Enhancer. It says it gives you a moisturizing punch of balm with a satiny feel of gloss.

Maddi and I tried the Jouer balm and it feels amazing! Makes you lips look so healthy and brings your natural color out! Feels like silk and I will be purchasing this for $14!!

Next is the balm cosmetics in Stainatic in Beauty Queen. It's a sheer gel formula that is perfect stain for your lips and cheeks. It was very pretty and we may purchase this in the future as its $12 full size.

This month they put in two extras. One was a Läbar called über. It was so amazing! It was full of nuts and protein and I loved it! Prolly won't purchase then from Birchbox but from the store for sure.

Last but not least they gave a set of ear buds! They are cute and we always need them around here!!

So for my first month I was pretty impressed! I LOVE getting stuff in the mail but especially beauty products! But also letters and cards and fun stuff!

So to top it all off it was exciting and enjoyable and you can cancel at anytime. I just pay monthly. There are some similar boxes out there but this one was cheapest and had some cool stuff.

Lemme know what ya think and if you do get them or are considering it I'd love to hear from ya.

Great looking nails!

Hi ladies!

Sorry been gone for awhile and I know in blog world that is not good as I need to keep going and going everyday but been going thru some personal stuff. But now I'm single, got my mind back more clearly and ready to partay and do what I love! Speaking with all you ladies and giving my tips and advice as well as getting new tips and tricks to share with you!!

So today I am sharing how to get great lookin summer nails, and Fall, Einter and Spring. Lol

You all need to go get a Sally's beauty card and start shoppin. They have really started carrying great polish like Finger Paints, China Glaze and Setche Vite top and base coat! Setche Vite in $10 at Target and some other stores. At Sally's they have it on sale all the time. Right now it's 2/$10! I have a pro card so that's my everyday price but the last flyer had 2/$7! So it's worth getting a flyer just for great deals.

Finger Paint polish was on sale buy 2 get 1 free. But *tip- you HAVE to watch the receipt and make sure you point out the deals as I have to go back and get another polish they didn't give me the deal and I get to pick a free color. Yay!

Anyway, on to the tip. I have tried every base coat (but the Setche Vite one) but I tried this ridge filler as a base coat and let it dry. Painted my nails with a beautiful mint color and only have one coat which generally do two. But found with this ridge filler it made one coat look gorg. I added the top coat and was amazed at how smooth and pretty it looked! I got the ridge filler for $5.99 and it's a big bottle!

My daughter got a neon pink and her nails look very pretty to!

Well that's my tip today! Glad to be back and have missed all you lovelies! Xoxo make everyday a beauty day! Always wear lipgloss and mascara hugs
