Limited Edition: Birchbox Finds

Biore Self Heating One Minute Mask - This mask uses charcoal to purify pores and control shine. Biore is usually pretty cheap. I'm interested in looking further into the ingredients!

Bombshell Shine Shadow by LashBlast - This is a silver shimmery cream shadow and I'm not sure if I love it. I know I wouldn't have grabbed this product on my own.  The color is ok. It's not spectacular or anything.

CoverGirl Bombshell Volume by LashBlast Mascara - I hated this when I bought it for myself. I tried it again (the first tube I didn't open this one) and I still disliked it! I am donating this unopened one.

Nivea Kiss of Care & Color - I like this, but I don’t like love it. I will for sure use it up, but I wouldn’t reach for it first. I am happier with balms that don’t add color. Maybe because I smear it on so much?

John Frieda Frizz Ease Nourishing Oil Elixir - I will need to use it a little more to see it can be a replacement to my pricey argan oil treatments.

Rimmel London Stay Glossy 3D Lipgloss - Pink sparkly lip gloss? How about the fact it last 6 hours without having to reapply? I have been loving Rimmel's Show Off Lip Lacquer.

Sally Hansen Complete Salon Manicure - It’s a base coat, top coat and color gel polish in one. And Rain is wearing it right now.


Betsey Johnson Intimates Rayon Woven Shorts - I squealed at these. Hello Betsey Johnson! I love Betsey Johnson stuff. 

Happy Socks Half Stripe Sock Pink / Grey - These will be lounge socks. I don't really do over the ankle socks. 

Kiby’s Anastasia Cami & Bikini in Aqua - LOVE this! Seriously how cute is this? Not too scandalous, but still sexy. I am super happy with the colors, the style, everything!

All totaled I came up with a value of $75.99 for the March 2014 Wantable Intimates box! I would like to add that I only paid $36 for this!!

Bluum Box

Busy Day Press and Play Sound Book - Faith loved this! she was all excited about pushing the buttons and pointing at the pictures.

Baby ECOS Stain and Odor Remover - This is going in my car or going to work with me. I think it is a great product already!

Manhattan Toy Stuffed Frog - Rain was happy to snatch up Froggle as she has named him. He went straight into the lovable tea party bunch.

Weleda Baby Calendula Weather Protection Cream - I wanted something last this when it snowed and snowed that week. Rain would get wind blistered. I am putting this up for safe keeping.

Wellements Baby Tiny Voices - I hope I do not have to use this any time soon with Rain but we will see how well this works.


Dave’s Coffee Syrup - Vin was super excited to get this. I just poured some into some milk and it tasted great too. 

Olive & Sinclair Buttermilk White Coffee - Amazing! I have loved every chocolate I have tried from them and this one was no exception.

La Quercia Smoky Borsellino - Vin was extremely excited about this. He said it will be so awesome to have something to eat for lunch. 

Franklin BBQ Expresso BBQ Sauce Franklin BBQ is in Austin, TX and was recently named the best BBQ place in the country by Bon Appétit magazine! I do know that if we are ever in Austin, we will be visiting this place!

Lark Fine Foods Expresso Chip Shortbread - Vin and I are saving these for a special occasion. Him with his coffee and me with my tea! An indulgent night.

Hippie Chow Mocha Hazelnut - I ate this bag all by myself! I'm a big girl... Actually I am just a fatty, not really.

Bike Loot

UV400 Customer Sunglasses: These will become the spare pair in my car. I usually don't like to wear my name brand ones into places so I love the ideas of this.

Acli-Mate Altitude Energy Aid - I am thinking of giving this to Elizabeth for her obstacle course marathon.

Snap Infusion Supercandy - I tried a few of these during a run the other morning and I really wished I could have had these during the marathon.

Angie’s Healthy Popcorn Snack - Yummy! I think this would be a great post marathon snack. I think it will be awesome!

PROBAR Superfood Energy Bar - I have never tried this brand before and thought it was fairly tasty! I'm excited to try more from this brand.


Anatomicals Puffy the Eye Bag Slayer Wake Up Under Eye Patches - I haven't tried these out yeah but if they do I will be so excited. Plus I love the name!

Sumita Beauty Kala Color Intense Pencil - This went into my donate pile.

Renu Lip and Eye Active Lift - The bottle says that this is 25mL, which would make it full sized so I am going with it. It’s a specialist cream which is suppose to smooth fine lines and expression lines and plump deeper wrinkles and reduce dark circles. I am going to try this for a few weeks and hope to see some amazing results!

Pureology Serious Colour Care Colour Fanatic - Lillian begged for this since she just went purple again. I handed it over.

Lauren B. Beauty Nail Couture in City of Angels - This is a brand new polish line that is launching in the Spring. The color is maybe a little too light for me, but I will make it work.

All totaled I came up with a value of $96.58 for the February 2014 GLOSSYBOX! As always, the value is incredible and I am thrilled with the box. The box is $21/month, however I subscribed during some promotion so I pay only $17.85/month.

SocialBliss Style Box

Wrapped Up in Radiance Scarf - I hope my pictures do this one justice because this is just flat out gorgeous. The colors, the print, everything. I love it! The card says that it’s in this year’s pantone color of the year: Radiant Orchid, which I didn’t realize, so it was a fitting selection.

Galena Bliss Ring - This is gorgeous. It was made just for the Style Box and comes in Silver or Gold. I didn’t have a preference on color, but I really really like the gold in person. The contrast between the gold and the crushed galena mineral crystals is fabulous. I should also mention that this ring is sizable, so it should fit most everyone. It's worth $55.

Go Matte Polish by She - I have never heard of this brand, but this certainly is a fun polish. And again, in the Pantone color of the year! I already want more of these polishes in assorted colors.

Vinotherapy Face Mask by Nasiture - I have never heard of a wine mask before! The suggestion is to use it after a rough night (which may or may not have included wine consumption) to restore you for the next day.

Fleur de Wallet - I'm not keeping this for myself I have someone who doesn't read this blog that this is going to as soon as I can get it to them!

Inked in Stylus Pen - This is way more fun than a regular pen and a regular stylus! It really is more of an accessory than a writing utensil and I am keeping this in my iPad case.

All totaled I came up with a value of $139 for February 2014 Socialbliss Style Box and I love it! Like I mentioned, the box itself is $39.95 plus shipping per month, so the value is more than double the cost of the box.
