Ipsy Beautifully Bohemian: April 2015

Ipsy Beautifully Bohemian: April 2015

The bag for the April 2015 Ipsy bag is by far the cutest one they’ve had.  It’s an adorable straw bag in various colors that just screams summer.  Not only is the bag super cute, the goodies inside aren’t that bad either!

Birchbox – January 2013

birchbox january 2013

The first Birchbox of the new year is here!  But it’s not that impressive. :(  I’m just going to start by saying that I’m tired of getting Juicy Couture fragrances in these boxes.  I’ve gotten three in the last year.  Yes, they have been different Juicy Couture scents but I don’t like any of them.  If they’re gonna keep sending us fragrance samples at least mix it up more.

I don’t know why but the latest Birchboxes have just felt stale to me.  I find myself getting less and less excited to receive it each month which is a bad sign.  I’m thinking that maybe I need to just step away from Birchbox for a few months and see what happens.

Birchbox – December 2012

Birchbox december 2012

It’s time for another Birchbox!  I missed posting my November 2012 Birchbox since I was pretty much sick all of November.  Plus last month’s box was a major let down so I didn’t feel bad not posting it.  And let me just start off saying that this month isn’t that great either.

December’s Birchbox is better than last month but I think it could have been way better since it is the month of Christmas.  Nothing in the box really spoke holidays to me which was kind of a bummer.

Birchbox – June 2012

Birchbox June 2012

It’s time for June’s Birchbox!  This month was pretty darn good.  I liked the scent of both the soap and the perfume.  And I was super excited to see two makeup samples this month!

Here’s what I got in this month’s box:

Birchbox June 2012

Bvlgari Omnia Crystalline Fragrance – Smells really nice.  Initially when I first sprayed it, it smelled like straight up rubbing alcohol.  I thought it was a fluke but nope, it does that each time I spray it.  Weird.  It quickly dissipates though and leaves a very soft, clean scent behind.

Borghese Crema Saponetta Mini Cleansing Bar – Smells really fresh and clean.

theBalm Stainiac Lip Stain in Beauty Queen – I already own the full size of this and really like it.  I snagged it in a theBalm lip gloss set at TJ Maxx around last Christmas.  It gives your lips and cheeks a flush of pink color.

Ada Cosmetics Mineral Powder Peach Bronzer – Not sure how I feel about this.  It has a lot of sheen to it and is quite golden orange.  I’ll give it a try but I may just use it as a blush instead.

Bonus Extra: 

Cynthia Rowley Band-Aids – A box of 20 assorted Band-Aids with fun, feminine designs on them.  Cute!
