October Boxycharm 🍂

Hello friends! Who is ready for the holidays? I am so excited and love Halloween but I am even more excited for thanksgiving and Christmas!!! We travel for the holidays and it always makes me excited!

Anywho, what did we think about this months boxycharm? This was a great box but I think I’m getting a little bored with it. Is it just me?? This month I received a Kat Von d liquid lip, makeup removing balm, a Pur cosmetics face palette, an it cosmetic mascara and a lace face mask. All the products were great but I feel so uninspired.

It is definitely worth the money. You get great products but let’s be honest, are we not drowning in liquid lipsticks that are in shades we don’t love? And eyeshadow palettes that are lack luster except when we do happen to get a Pur palette? And me personally I hate getting face masks. I never use them with the exception of this one just so it’s not wasted.

Hopefully next month will inspire me but for now I will be waiting and hopeful. I love my boxycharm posts but I’m not sure they are here to stay!

Week 14 bumpdate!

Second trimester! Hallelujah! My morning sickness is finally going away and my appetite is starting to come back. You have no idea how much I have missed eating haha. My next doctor appointment I should find out what I’m having. I’m so excited. Though I’m pretty sure I’m having a girl, it’s my gut feeling. I’m treating myself to my favorite Cajun place tonight for dinner. I have been trying to get it for weeks! So excited that is finally going down.

I still have gained no weight and just look bloated. I’d rather be starting to show just so I don’t look chunky lol. It’s so weird for your clothes to not fit or look good but you don’t look pregnant. Looking forward to my belly and also excited for the major nutrition changes I’ll be doing to lose weight and get my pre baby body back. I’ll keep you updated and you can join the journey with me if you want!!

In other news I am absolutely in love with the Arbonne products. They work so amazingly and I feel good about using them because they are natural and science based. Can we say #Pure. My skin is really turning around! ErinTrevathan.arbonne.com click here to check out all the amazing products and message me to learn more and save 20%!

New Journey – New Business

Hello Friends! I am so excited to share this new adventure I am going on with you. As you probably know I am pregnant and I was doing weekly updates but the past few weeks have been incredibly difficult. Pregnancy is hard!! I have been so insanely sick and can barely eat which makes me super tired. It was gross and boring so I decided not to write about it. But yesterday I took a leap of faith and started my own business.maxresdefault

I had watched a girl on Instagram for a while talk casually about products she was using and loved and after months of consideration and research I decided that it was a journey I was ready for. Being a stay at home mom makes me a little crazy sometimes and sometimes I feel guilty. Its not an easy job but I still felt I should try and contribute to helping make some extra money in our house. So I have joined Arbonne. If you are like me and never heard of this it is because it is still relatively unknown in the US but it should be!Arbonne_1thumb-40ca67f12ddd4a6cbafba50201cae1d4

Arbonne is a science based company who believes in creating botanically based powerful and pure products. These products are the best you can get all while being free of GMO’s, parabens, soy, whey, gluten, animal testing, waste and so much more! I am truly blown away by how amazing this company is and how well the products work.Screen Shot 2018-09-19 at 10.00.26 AM

I of course will continue to keep you updated on what my favorite products are and my healthy, green journey. I wanted to write this post because I truly beleive in the values and products of the company and it needs to be shared!

PLEASE email me, message me, tweet me with any questions regarding nutrition and health which I have my masters degree in or questions about makeup and skincare which I have worked in for the past 10 years! IMG_0409

Check out products for yourself and let me know! erintrevathan.arbonne.com

Boxy Charm (BOXY LUXE) Wild Flower- September 2018

Hello Friends! I have been on a bit of a break because of being so dang sick! This baby is determined to take all my food and all my energy but I definitely got a boost with the arrival of my Boxy Luxe box.

First I want to talk about the launch of Boxy Luxe. It was a bit messy. I think it’s crazy for the company to not think they would have the amount of traffic they did especially with how much they hyped it up. I am beyond grateful I did get thru and received the box. I didn’t think I did at first. It wasn’t until hours later my bestie told me that we did in fact make it on the list!! Talk about an emotional day. Any who lets jump into the goods!

IMG_6607Here she is in all her glory. Let me just say it is so much better in person. I don’t think I have ever been so excited for a box! IMG_6610First up I  received the Park Ave Princess Chisel Palette from tarte. It is stunning and smells like chocolate which is oh so delicious. The shades blend like a dream with amazing pigment and super creaminess. This would also double as a great quick neutral eye palette! MSRP – 45$

Next pictured is the Pretty Vulgar Nightingale Smokey Eyeshadow Palette. This is a very pretty neautral palette in which you can create multiple looks. It has nice pigment and blends well. There are also chocolately colors as well as greys. MSRP – 35$

Lastly pictured is the Girlactik Skin Glow Duo. I was really excited about this at first but I do wish I would have gotten the Laura Gellar blush instead now. This is a cream highlight and just doesn’t pack the punch that I love but I will have to keep playing with it to see if I can change my mind. MSRP – 26$

IMG_6609Next up I received the Juice Beauty Stem Cellular Anti-wrinkle Booster Serum. I am sooo excited about this serum. I am die hard for the lancome genifique but it is crazy expensive. I am hoping to love this product just as much and maybe have a new favorite serum. Also happy I received the serum instead of the moisturizer because I am currently drowning in moisturizers. lol Juice Beauty is a great all natural, cruelty free brand and I may have to grab more products! MSRP – 80$

Pictured in the middle is the Sol De Janeiro Ipanema Sunset Glow Oil. This of course smells so amazing like everything else they make and leaves skin with a very natural glow. I thought it would be over the top but it’s really perfect even if you aren’t super tan like moi. MSRP – 35$

Lastly pictured is the Smashbox Photo Finish Primer Water in the scent centering citrus. It does smell good and leave the skin refreshed but I’m not sure yet if it does anything as a primer. Further testing will have to be done. MSRP – 32$

IMG_6611Who isn’t excited to get brushes?? I have a ton and I always want more. I honestly wanted to purchase these alamar Ojitos brushes just on how cute they are with that green. Lucky for me I thought they would show up in a boxy charm box eventually, so I waited. They are super soft and apply shadow beautifully but I do prefer a natural hair brush for blending. MSRP – 18$

As for this Luxie 732 Airbrush Foundation Brush… well let’s just talk about luxury! It is so soft and my foundation is blended like a dream. It is pricey but OMG it is so amazing. New favorite for sure! MSRP – 38$IMG_6612Lastly in the box I received R+Co High Dive Moisture Shine Cream. I haven’t tried this out yet so the verdict is out still. But I’m not a huge fan of hair products. I will give it a fair chance tho. MSRP – 16$

I got the Lorac Pro Liquid Lipstick. I’m so obsessed with this true red shade. Nude colors just don’t look great on me and I’m all about bold lips. That makes a statement that I love. MSRP – 19$

Last in the picture is the Vintage Cosmetic Company Dolly Bow Make-up Headband. Perfect for keeping your hair back as you clean your skin, apply makeup, or relax with a face mask. MSRP – 4.99$

Oh and don’t forget that super cute tote! That was unexpected. If you weren’t keeping that is a value of $348.99. That is just amazing and So exciting! Boxycharm slays the game again!

Week 8 Bumpdate

Things have defintietly starting to change this past week. My nausea is getting worse and worse. The dishwasher makes me vomit. I can’t even explain it. I have to eat the tiniest meals because, again, everything is making me sick. Eating too much and eating too little. It is so annoying and I hate it! I continue to pray it gets better. In the mean time I have ordered some ginger candies that are supposed to help. IMG_6443Here is a photo I took this morning. No belly yet of course, just some bloating and a messy bathroom.

It is definitely harder this time around having a toddler and not having work to distract me. I need to start exercising more and balance my meals. I do go to the doctor next week which is exciting! I will continue to keep you updated. Please leave me comments about any nausea remedies you have! I need them all!

Boxy Charm Breakdown

August is in full swing and 2018 is flying away. This month Boxy Charm was the Life of the Party! Or so their theme suggested. Let’s dive in to this months offerings and I’ll let you know what I thought. IMG_6368

First item was either a hate it or love it kind of deal. The Laura Lee Los Angles Party Animal palette. It’s bold and bright. The colors blend very nicely and give great color payoff. But they are bright! The main thing I don’t like about the palette is that it is difficult to make a complete look. It needs at least one light, matte shade to blend out everything. Just my opinion tho. The palette retails for 19$IMG_6369

Next up is the Smashbox Pucker Up Palette in Bold. It comes with 6 of their best selling Be Legendary bold lipstick colors. I love lipstick so much but I hate lip palettes. They just aren’t convenient in my opinion and the colors are definitely for fall. This will be going in my special effects kit. Retails for 24$

Next I got the Tarte Cosmetics Lifted Sweat Proof Mascara. I do love that it is sweat proof but it is in a black brown shade. Not a huge deal when I’m wearing lashes but when I don’t it is lackluster. Retail is 23$Screen Shot 2018-08-13 at 12.32.01 PM

This months box contained Wander Baggage Claim Gold Eye Masks. These promise to brighten, hydrate, and reduce the appearance of dark circles and fine lines. I’m not a a huge user of eye masks but it makes perfect sense for the theme of the box. Get these guys for 13$ Screen Shot 2018-08-13 at 12.32.10 PM

This item is total junk if I’m being completely honest. The Bang Beauty Chocolate Eyeliner feels like it was left laying around from last year and they gave it to boxy charm for free… I attempted to use it as eyeliner and it removed my eyeshadow without laying product down. I tried using it as a brow product but this formula is so dry and chunky.. ugh such a throw away. And it’s 22$$$ Insane!                Screen Shot 2018-08-13 at 12.32.20 PM

Last product seems to be like a little bit of an after thought. NCLA So Rich Lollipop Lollipop is a cuticle oil. I’m sure everyone could or should use this item but I rarely do my nails so I just didn’t get excited. Could be wrong with how everyone else feels tho! Grab yours for 18$Screen Shot 2018-08-13 at 12.31.44 PM

Overall I always think boxycharm is still an amazing deal even if you only like 1 or 2 items. 21$ but a value of 119$ Hoping that next month brings better surprises.

Huge News, Follow My Journey

This momma is so proud to announce that I AM PREGNANT! Friends I am so excited to share this exciting news. I know many people like to wait until the second trimester to share the news but I am not one of those people and I am just too excited!

Each friday I will be giving a weekly update about how I am feeling and what is going on. Things will include general pregnancy stuff, shopping, dr appointments, bump updates, and more!

So today I am 7 weeks pregnant. I have been feeling pretty good overall so far. With my son I had the most intense sense of smell and was so sick. I do have heartburn and slight nausea but no sickness so far. Loading the dishwasher makes me the most nauseous surprisingly. I have fallen into a cycle of waking up at about 2 am and not being able to go back to sleep for hours.. annoying!!

I’m not showing at all but I will begin to add bump pictures starting next week!

Stay tuned for more bump-dates and follow along with my journey this second round.

xoxo Erin
