Excited to see my April Birchbox!

VeganCuts Beauty Box is an amazing monthly subscription service that introduces you to new brands and products that will help update and make your makeup/skincare/haircare more natural. In February, new subscribers got a bonus goody of the nail polish.
Each month they give spoilers and 2 of them were the 100% Pure double eyeshadow sticks and the Wonder Seed facial cream. Totally got me hooked as I'm a huge fan of the of 100% Pure!
The WonderSeed Facial cream is amazing, just as amazing as their hand cream!

GoodBeing, a natural beauty subscription box company recently launched in February a limited edition special box. New to their services, I decided to treat myself to this indulgent box full of natural and amazing goodies.
The two items that initially caught my eye were the Vitamin C body oil from One Love Organics- one of my favorite brands and the most adorable set of fashionable totes!
After receiving the box, I fell in love with all the other goodies:
-AILA nail polish - the perfect deep red hue for Valentine's Day and any other day !
-Osmia lip treatment provided an intense moisturizer for my lips
-lilikoi living serum
Also included was a 2 month subscription gift to their regular monthly boxes!

Are you a runner? Or just looking for a way to hide your keys and phone without putting them in your purse? Then you've got to invest in a running belt! It's a more fashionable than a fanny-pack and you get the reflective trim to help protect you when you're out in the evenings/nights.
The TKO running belt is a particular favorite fitness accessory because it practical, useful and comfy to wear. It has two zipper compartments to hold my phone- these smart phones nowadays are just bulky!- and my keys separately. You can also put any ID or credit cards in the same pouch as your phone.
Note: I received this product for review purposes only. All opinions are mine.

Thanks to iFabbo, this holiday I kept my dull, winter hair extra fab with the KERANIQUE clean & Condition set.
This duo combination offers the Scalp stimulating shampoo. Afterward, you use the Volumizing Keratin Conditioner which helped bring life to my usual flat hair.

Loving my #keraniquehair thanks to being an #ifabbomember!!

This past month I have been using the new StriVectin Advanced Retinol Pore Refiner. Thanks to iFabbo, I had the opportunity for my pores to go from ick to ahh. Learn more about it here: http://bit.ly/1gE3Gni
After using the StriVectin Pore Refiner, I saw an immediate difference on my skin. Smoother skin was the biggest thing that I noticed. Usually retinol causes my skin to get a bit more dry but the additional moisturizing ingredients in this product helped ease that. This product overall is a must in my skincare routine. Many of the bumps and pores that I used to have are now less noticeable and even gone! :) LOVE LOVE the results and can't wait to keep using it throughout the winter season.

It's time for some home cooking for the holidays! (Or there's always take-out too if you don't have time.) But for those that enjoy time spent in the kitchen, you have to check out RawSpiceBar. This monthly subscription provides a monthly theme along w/ 3 spices and recipes that would go along with the supplied spice packets.
November's theme was Ethiopian
Sample recipes for the spices
The subscription is less than $10 a month and adds a nice "flavor" to your meals.
(Note: RawSpiceBar provided the November subscription so I could review and share my thoughts with my readers. All opinions are my own.)

Can you believe it's already December? Between Thanksgiving to Christmas, these couple of weeks is one of my favorite times of the year- spending it with family and shopping for others! I have only a few short weeks and quite a number of folks on my Santa list (lots of people who were nice this year apparently). Each year I usually like to give a mix of stocking stuffers to go along with the gift. It just adds a nice oomph to it.
For my beauty lovers, I love gifting them with useful beauty tools and beauty sets. A gal can never have more than enough glosses! Plus, I adore both so these are definitely on my wish list as well!
-new compact mirrors!
-new hair brushes
These 2-in-1 combine a compact mirror and hair brush! From Olivia Gardens, these are available at Ulta for $3.49-perfect for your bestie and yourself!
One of my fave beauty brands Vapour Organic Beauty is offering these three gift sets on Target.com! Obsessed with sets in general, I adore their multi-use sticks to provide lip colour and cheeks the same colored flush. Here are three with 3 different price points to match your holiday budget!
Available for $40, the duo set includes: Siren Lipstick in Plush, a dusty rose, and Elixir Plumping Lip Gloss in Mystery, a sugared plum.
Available for $50- this is the perfect holiday duo. With nude eyes and berry stain lips, you'll be the catch of the party! This set contains Aura Multi-Use in Instinct, a decadent pomegranate stain, can be used on both lips and/or cheeks and Mesmerize Eye Color in Chill, a silvered taupe, which brightens the eyes with a soft shimmering light.
What I love most about their products is that their colors are buildable so you can get a more intense look by layering on an additional coat of color. 😍
This is my favorite combo- for $70- the set provides Aura Multi-Use in Lavish, a gilded peach to get the perfect glow, Mesmerize Eye Color in Bliss, a smoky brown with a hint of violet and the Elixir Plumping Lip Gloss in Bon Bon, a golden peachy pink. These can be worn together or separately to help create your holiday look this month!

This month's curated Birchbox was with Tati from GlamLifeGuru on YouTube! I adored the picks that came in this box with lots of great essentials for the winter (even though it is around 70s in SoCal!)
The dry shampoo is now a staple in my #mommylife and excited to try this from Living Proof. Other essentials to keep looking revitalized from the sleepless nights is the Shiseido eye concentrate (goodbye bags!), Jouer lip enhancer (hello moisturized lips!) and the Avene hydrating serum (hello beautiful skin!). I honest feel like this box was made for me and couldn't have come at a better time!
Also excited to get the shadow stick from LOC-Birchbox's own line of Beauty products! It's a shimmery golden colour that is perfect for the night out and to instantly "glam" your look.
November is all about giving thanks and all those warm fuzzy feelings! While I'm particularly loving this box, I still can't wait to see what's in store for next month's!

Have you tried magical water? I mean.. Micellar Water? Simple Skincare's latest product is this cleansing solution to her skin clean, hydrated and refreshed! It's better than using regular water as it doesn't clean as thorough and my skin still feels oily after.
To use with the Micellar Water, the new Q-tips cotton rounds will help distribute it evenly on your face as well as pick up the makeup/dirt you want to get rid of. I've been using Q-tips my whole life, so these rounds are a must have to my beauty closet.

August has come and gone, but I am still loving my end of the summer goodies from my Birchbox. I chose the curated box with Nicole Ritchie and loved it!
The nail polish I can still transition to and wear in the Fall.
