Okay so I’m not definite that you’re getting ALL 4 of these products, they may be chosen based on your Ipsy quiz preferences, but they all look good so far! This picture above shows two of the possible items! This silver tube is an Urban Decay Lipstick! Worth $22, woah! I’m not sure if they have different color preferences, but it looks like a bold red and a hot pink may be the options.

Additionally, there is a lip balm by Noya that is a kosher and natural balm for soothing your lips. So far I’ve seen flavor options like Classic, Cherry, Spearmint and Vanilla, but who knows what else they have up their sleeves (worth $4). I really hope everyone is getting both of these items, or else there will be some unhappy campers.

Now, we have face/body products by Michael Todd! While I can’t confirm what the products are exactly, these deluxe samples could be one of the following: Oat and Honey Cleanser, Pumpkin Mask, Jojoba Charcoal Facial Scrub (or other scrub), one of his many Moisturizers, or one of his few facial Serums. I’m trying to base it off the bottle color/shape/types! Personally, I have my fingers crossed for either a scrub, cleanser or mask! I’ve recieved a lot of serums and lotions lately, so it would be overkill.

Finally we have Pixi Beauty Lash Booster Mascara! I love mascara, so I’m pumped! I hope it comes in Blackest Black or Blackest Blue, and I can’t quite tell if it’s a full-size or deluxe sample.. hmm..

Check out these cute bags of chips! I love the summer picnic table cloth-theme of the bags, and like all the different flavors they have to offer. Apparently BOPS are ‘baked organic potato snacks’ and are better for you than regular chips and various other processed snacks out there. Sign up for Love With Food Here.
Hope you all enjoyed these!

Turbana Sweet Plantain Chips- Delicious and better for you than potato chips.



Do More Bars in Pineapple Coconut. This rice-krispie like treat was gluten-free so I gave it to a friend who said it was amazing and asked where she could get a box!


For some reason, I can’t figure out what happened to the photo I had of the dried seaweed by Seaweed Love or the mango-coconut ice pop, so I grabbed images off their websites… but these were also included in the box!

And… there was a $50 Gift Card to, however you’re required to buy 6 bottles/spend at least $100, so I’m not too sure if I’ll be using that anytime soon..

So, what did you guys think of this box? I’m def. subscribing for another box… hope its as good, if not better!

What’s on my…. June 21st (P.S. Discount Codes in Here!)

So, somehow my entire post from yesterday unpublished itself and went back to basic draft form. Beyond confused, so here’s a re-post with a few edits…. What’s on my Mind: Coffee, coffee and more coffee. Can you guess who hasn’t … Continue reading

I’m Baaaaaaaaaack! The Re-Launch of Stylish in Suburbia

Happy Monday everyone! And by that, I mean I hope you stayed tough through that first day back in work/class after a never-long-enough weekend!

So, you’re probably confused as to what happened to my blog. Did Mackenzie fall off the face of the earth? Did she give up on it? ABSOLUTELY NOT! Right around the time I launched Stylish in Suburbia, I was applying to 38457595 jobs and finally landed one and threw all my time and energy into it. Now that I’ve gotten over much of the chaos of my new-found career, I’m devoting my time and effort to get back to doing what I love: blogging!

So, I am re-launching Stylish in Suburbia with a few new twists. I will still continue to post my rambles and insight about the day-to-day life of a working fashionista, the new clothing and beauty products I can’t keep my hands off, and a few photoshoots from time to time. However, I will also be adding something different and quirky: I’m going to review some of the amazing beauty and fitness boxes I’ve been receiving via mail. On a whim, I signed up for Ipsy about 6 months ago, and I’ve been head over heels for it! Out of all the bags I’ve received so far, I’ve managed to score some awesome products like St. Tropez Bronzing Cream, NYX loose mineral eyeshadow, and Lash Cards (perfect for not covering my eyelids in mascara!). These products are only few among the many I’ve received so far, and I don’t plan on cancelling anytime soon.

Instead, I’m going ALL OUT and signing up for a variety of different boxes, from BuluBox and Love With Food to Julep and Beauty Army. So, I hope you’ll join me for the journey as I continue to post my favorite outfits, styles, and trends to reviewing these surprise boxes, and even more under the sun! I don’t plan on leaving anything out, so if you have any requests, or questions feel free to comment or e-mail me. AND if you would like me to review a box, I would be more than willing! Who doesn’t love free stuff PLUS helping others make the right decisions about purchases.
