BoxyCharm is a full-size and occasionally deluxe-sample sized makeup and beauty subscription box… oh, and one of my favorites right now! For only $21 per month, they send you 4-6 quality makeup, skincare, haircare and beauty products with brands ranging from … Continue reading
I had been anxiously waiting to get details on the Allure Beauty Box, and so when I found out it would be up for sale at 12PM on April 29th, I was beyond excited. That is… until the site crashed. … Continue reading
Hi all! It’s been a while since I wrote up one of these, as I’ve been busy with starting my new job, and catching up on the last round of September subscription boxes. I hope you’ve still been actively reading and seeing the spoilers I’ve been releasing and are as excited as I am for the October ones to come piling in!
What happened this weekend/earlier this week
I went to the Islanders Home Opener Game! I went with K and some of his family members to the opening game at Nassau Coliseum on Saturday night and it was PACKED! It was a great game, with pretty close seats and was pretty nail-biting up to the last minute in overtime. Unfortunately, they lost in a shootout, but it was definitely a good opening game.
I got a much need mani/pedi. I always try to delay getting my nails done due to spending money every 1-2 weeks, but I just love feeling pampered and having an hour to myself of relaxation. Plus, I get a cute new color and design each time! This week I went with Essie “where’s my chauffeur,” a light teal color, with some silvery sparkles on my ring fingers.
Mondays are now FREE MEDIUM ICED COFFEE days at Dunkin! I got a coupon in the paper over the weekend, and so you can definitely say I’m getting one every Monday morning before hopping on the train.
What’s on my plate
I have to be honest… I’ve been craving ethnic food like crazy lately. By that I mean, classic Indian, Thai and Japanese foods, straight from the restaurant/chef. There’s just something about doing it yourself that it’s not quite as good as when you order out. Maybe it’s the weather change, who knows!? A few nights ago, I devoured Thai tofu and veggie red curry. Last night, I had some Thai pahd see ew noodles, and today, for lunch, I chowed down on some brown rice sushi! I can’t help it, I’m addicted.
What’s on my To-Do List
Besides making it to the weekend, I have a few subscription boxes and products to blog about! I had quite a few beauty and makeup items come in from Ulta, as well as my Blush Mystery Box (well, bag), which I’m excited to share with you all. This is going to be a jam-packed, busy month in terms of boxes and blogging as I have some new ones coming in later this month as well!
Although I love to post my reviews and thoughts on products and subscription boxes, sometimes there are other things happening in my life that I’d wish to share with you, my lovely readers 🙂
So here is “What’s on my…”, a section where I will post weekly updates with what’s on my mind, plate, rant list and more! Enjoy!
What’s on my Plate:
I constantly go instagram crazy with food pictures, often ones of my own homemade lunch or snacks… almost to the point where my friends are asking to cook for them, or to stop posting because they get too hungry at work. So here was my favorite lunch this week: a honey turkey and muenster cheese bran wrap with mixed greens, tomatoes and coleslaw with a side of macaroni salad and a hardboiled egg. Off to the side, you’ll see fruit salad as well! I ty to eat pretty healthy while also mixing it up and getting the proper balance of food groups.
What’s on my Mind:
How can it manage to be down-pouring in the morning, absolute cats and dogs, and a few hours later is scorching hot and sunny out? My outfits NEVER make sense! I start out in jeans and rain boots, then get weird stares by the time I get out of work by people in cut-off shorts and tank tops. Or vice versa, I try to dress “summery” and then I’m getting pelted by rain drops in my white button down and pastel skirt!
What’s on my Body:
Turquoise! Lots of turquoise jewelry including a vintage family-owned pendant, and a Fossil Brand braided bracelet. I was almost tempted to throw on some blue/turquoise eyeliner but I thought it would be a bit too much for a typical day in the office.
What’s on my Agenda:
Getting my nails done! If anyone knows me at all, they know I always have cool, funky colors on my nails… often with an accent nail in leopard, polka dot or something else outrageous. However, last week I broke off half of my nails (acrylic tips of course, and not on purpose, ouch!) and so I took the initiative to just remove the rest, and now I have bare little stubs. 😦 At least it gives me an excuse to get the $15 Mani-Pedi deal that my salon offers… I never usually treat myself to a pedicure due to time and money! Check out my last color combo!
What’s on my Rant List:
#1 When my friends get their subscription boxes before me! I’m mostly kidding, but I’m extremely jealous that they already got a jump start at opening up, looking at and testing their new awesome products. For example, my friend Megan got her Ipsy bag yesterday (to which we were texting back and forth about all day) and so I was able to see it when I watched PLL and drank wine with her that evening, however the products vary from bag to bag. So I could get the hot pink blush, or the NYX multi-colored bronzer… it all depends on the luck of the draw!
#2 When I subscribe to a company, receive the “Welcome!” e-mail and weekly subscriber e-mails, however when I haven’t received any boxes in 6 weeks, they can’t seem to manage to e-mail me back/answer any messages! I won’t use any names for now, but I will be reviewing the company in the future (if my box ever arrives…) so we will see what happens. 😉
What’s on my Desk:
COOKIES! One of our speakers dropped off this awesome bouquet/gift basket of cookies! Yum…. and goodbye healthy lunch!
