Ipsy is a monthly beauty, makeup, skincare and haircare subscription box, filled with 4-6 sample, deluxe-sample and full-sized products, plus a unique and reusable makeup bag! This $10 (+tax) subscription box is one of the originals and still one of my … Continue reading
Hi everyone! So we got an extra early sneak peek for this month, as Ipsy sent out an e-mail to previous subscribers urging them to come back. How did they do so? By revealing that every June Ipsy Glam Bag will include … Continue reading
My Ipsy Glambag has arrived! Ipsy released the contents of their March Glam Bag, and of course, I peeked (see spoilers here)! I almost always am happy with my Ipsy GlamBag, or at least like 3-4 out of the 5 products included. This month, … Continue reading
So, as many of you know, I’m a big bargain shopper. Every once in a while, I’ll splurge for something like a Philosophy Bath Gel, or a really awesome Bare Minerals Foundation Powder. But in general, I try to stay … Continue reading
Oooh lala, my pink bag has arrived! As many of you know I’m a huge fan of the Ipsy Glambag, however this month had a few great items, as well as a few ‘eh’ items, and items I wish were … Continue reading
It’s that time of the month again… for my FAVORITE SUBSCRIPTION BAG! The Ipsy Glambag, of course. Unfortunately, I’m on the later-side of receiving the bag, so I had to patiently (or not so patiently) wait for my bag to … Continue reading
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.
