August Birchbox

Wow, I cannot believe I’m already writing my August Birchbox Unboxing. August? Already? Gosh, where did the time go? 


This month I actually chose the curated box. This is my first time ever choosing the curated box. I loved almost every product inside this box and so I figured why not? Inside I recieved: 

  • Stila stay all day liquid lipstick in Patina. 
  • Living Proof No Frizz nourishing oil. 
  • HUM Nutrition Raw Beauty Green Superfood Powder. 
  • Acure Organics Coconut & Argan Oil Cleansing Towelettes. 
  • Marcelle BB Cream Golden Glow. 
  • Beauty Protector Protect & Detangle. 


This being my fifth Birchbox, I think it has been my best one ever recieved. I’m so happy with it and I think Birchbox redeemed themselves! Yay, go Birchbox! 

Did you get Birchbox this month? What did you recieve?

XOXO,

DIY Pamper Night

It’s Friday night and I’m spending the evening unwinding with a bath and a face mask. A little pampering every once in a while could always help. There’s a few different things you could include in a pamper night. A pamper night doesn’t even need to be a Friday night, you could even do these things on a stressful Monday if you need to unwind and de-stress. 

1. Make yourself a hot/iced cup of tea or even water if you don’t like tea. 

2. Run yourself a nice hot bath. I like to add 2 cups of lavender Epsom salt (if you want you could use plain Epsom salt and 5-10 drops of essential oils). If you would like you can add bubbles instead. 

3. Light some candles. This can be very relaxing to lay in the bath with some candles lit. 

4. Put on a face mask or a sheet mask, you will feel pampered doing this believe me. 

5. Unwind in the bath with a good book. I feel like this helps me relax a lot, some time to myself with a good book. 

6. Paint your nails. When your nails are painted, you feel pampered. I know I do. I love the feeling of having freshly painted nails, it makes me feel put together. 

7. Do your skincare routine. This makes me feel good in itself. When I do my skincare routine, I feel refreshed. My routine includes cleanser, toner, and moisturizer. Every couple of days I include exfoliating but not daily. 

8. Use a lip scrub. This makes me feel good, especially when I go to put on my lipstick and my lips are nice and smooth. 

Do you have any other ways that you pamper yourself? Thanks for reading! 

XOXO, 

Ashley

July Birchbox

Hello lovelies! I hope you all are having a wonderful day! If not, I hope your day gets better 🙂 

Yesterday I recieved my Birchbox in the mail. To my surprise, it was actually good this month! Thank you Birchbox for surprising me and giving me a better box. 


The first thing I saw when I opened my box was this Marcelle micellar water. This was a free gift for re-subscribing. This is a pretty great size for a sample, I’m very happy with it. 


I also recieved in my Birchbox:

  • Balance Me face mask, suitable for all skin types. The full size costs $34. I don’t think I would buy the full size because of costs but it’s a fun thing to recieve in a box. 
  • Another Marcelle micellar water, nope I’m not complaining. I’m actually happy about it. I like micellar waters for removing makeup. This full sized costs $21. 
  • MDSolarSciences Mineral Cream. I feel eh about this product, it’s a face product and I’m always afraid to branch out and try new things but who knows right? The full size costs $30. 
  • Raw Spirit fragrances perfume sample. I’m actually happy that this sample is a spray bottle and not one of those open caps. I love the spray ones because you can carry them in your purse. The full size costs $40-$90. 
  • Lastly I recieved Smashbox X-Rated mascara. I’m super excited about this. Yes Birchbox! So happy to recieve some smashbox in this months box. The full size costs $22. 

Overall I’m happy that I stuck with Birchbox this month, hopefully they’re consistent next month! Thanks for reading! 

XOXO,

Walmart vs. Target beauty box


This month was my first month ever recieving the Walmart and Target beauty box. If any of you do not know, Walmart sends their boxes out every season for only a $5 shipping fee and Target varies… this month it was $7. Target releases their boxes each month and they are hard to get so when they are released you need to grab them quick! 


The Walmart beauty box was packed full of goodies this month. In the box was:

  • Arm & Hammer Truly Radiant toothpaste (clean and fresh). 
  • Schwarzkopf essence ultĂ®me shampoo and conditioner for colored or highlighted hair. 
  • Jergens Natural Glow daily moisturizer. 
  • Sally Hansen airbrushed legs in the color medium. 
  • InCoco nail strips in a black lace color. 
  • Goody slideproof hair elastics in a pack of 8. 

This box really surprised me. I actually really like everything that came inside this box. The Jergens moisturizer was a pretty great size, it will last a while. The hair elastics are expensive themselves, so that’s great to recieve in a $5 box. Overall I’m very impressed. 


The Target beauty box was pretty great this month too, it was worth the $7 spent. Inside was:

  • Toms of Maine toothpaste. 
  • Dove regenerative shampoo and conditioner. 
  • Garnier clearly brighter daily moisturizer. 
  • Sweet spot on the go wipettes x3.
  • Umberto lifting powder. 
  • NYX butter lipstick in the color Fun Size. 

Overall the Target box was a steal for the price. A NYX butter lipstick itself costs $5.99! The lifting powder is a pretty generous size, my mom will really enjoy this. The wipes are great and the shampoo is perfect for traveling. 

If I had to choose, I would pick the Walmart beauty box this month! The Walmart box just really caught my attention and I loved more things from it than I do with the Target box. 

XOXO,

Ashley

Collective haul


Hey lovelies! I have placed a couple Sephora orders and an Ulta order in the last month and so I’m here to share a collective haul with you! 

In my first order at Sephora I bought the Craig and Carl limited edition felt tip eyeliner set. This comes with 5 eyeliners. I liked this set because of the variety it provided. I also bought the Sephora collection Wishes Come True pallet and the Becca Opal Glow in the Go. The pallet was on sale for a great price and I couldn’t pass it up. I don’t own many Becca things, I have the Jaclyn Hill pallet and I love the highlighters and so I wanted to try Opal. 

In my second order at Sephora I bought Tarte’s Energy Noir clay pallet, I have been eyeing this for a long time. I don’t know what it is about this pallet that fascinates me but I am drawn to this pallet. The only other Tarte pallet I own is the Tartelette in Bloom. 

At Ulta I bought the Moondust pallet along with an eyebrow pencil and a sharpener (I needed a few more bucks for free shipping). I saw the Moondust pallet a few days before it came out and then the day it came out my fiancĂ© was nice enough to purchase it for me along with the other two orders. Ulta was also offering 5x points on all Urban Decay! The Moondust pallet is so beautiful. I can’t wait to play around with it. 

Well that’s everything I hauled in the past few weeks! I hope you enjoyed this post! Thanks for reading!

XOXO, 

Ashley

Ipsy July 2016


Happy Sunday everyone! I got my Ipsy bag at the end of last week and haven’t gotten the chance to post about it yet! 

First off, this months bag is adorbs! The holographic design with the little umbrellas, perfect for summer. 

In my bag I recieved:

  • Too Faced Hangover Rx primer. This is an amazing thing to get in the bag! There’s a few uses outta this little guy so you can test and see if you like the stuff. I’m glad because I have never tried this and wanted to see what the hype was about. 
  • The Balm Mr. Write (Now) eyeliner in Jac. This is a gorgeous gold color. 
  • Vasanti eyeshadow brush. This is a nice brush, you can never have too many brushes right? 
  • ModelCo power lash, I haven’t had a chance to try this mascara yet. I haven’t really heard much about it either. I like to only keep so many mascaras open at once so then they don’t go to waste. 
  • Lastly, the NS Anti-Frizz sheets. These look promising. I really hope these do what they say they will do because my hair tends to get frizzy and I get so annoyed by it! 

Well that was everything in this months Ipsy bag! Did you get something different? Do share! 

XOXO, 

Ashley

July 2016 Boxycharm Unboxing 

This months Boxycharm is super exciting for me. It included four products and they were all full sized. 


The first thing I pulled out of my box was the PYT Argan Oil. This is supposed to do a lot for your hair but I noticed frizz free. I can use all the help in that department that I can get. This retails for $30. 

The next thing was the Mally beauty eyeliner. This ice blue eyeliner is gorgeous. I love the color, especially having blue eyes! This retails for $18. 

Next I saw a lipgloss, this summer I have been pretty into lip glosses. This Berry shade is a gorgeous color to have gotten in Boxycharm. This packaging is adorable also! This retails for $16. 

Lastly was the thing I am most excited about in my box. Six Ofra eye shadows and a magnetic pallet! This pallet was a great thing to recieve along with the six pans. This is great because you can put the other pans you own inside it also! This retails for $59. 

That’s everything that came inside my Boxycharm this month! Thanks for reading! 

XOXO, 

Ashley
