Boxy and Chill: January 2019

Hey hey!! How are we all doing today? Are you rocking this New Years butt? My health challenge is going well! Today starts week 2 of it.

Well let me get to business. Here is what I received this month. This months box is definitely lack luster in my opinion. I was just not a fan.

First up I got the Briogeo Roscaro milk leave-in conditioning spray MSRP – 12$. I have gotten this product before and as most of you know I hate getting most hair products. Something has to be beyond mind blowing for me to get excited about hair.

Next I received the OFRA Long lasting liquid lipstick in the shade Miami fever MSRP- 20$. I do love liquid lipsticks and I’m excited to try out ofras formula. The shade is not one I would normally select for myself but I’m ready to try something different. The shade is like a brown/burnt red.

Up next I got the Tarte rain forest of the sea highlighting eyeshadow palette vol 3. MSRP- 36$. To be honest I think this would be a total waste of money and I would never have purchased this if I didn’t get it in my box. It’s literally all highlight shades but for your eyes… I will definitely try this on my cheeks and hopefully get more use out of it.

Next is the Tatcha luminous dewy skin masks. MSRP- 24$. I know tatcha is an awesome brand but I’m still undecided if I will be trying it or not. I have such an amazing skincare routine that is all natural. I may just give these to my mom or a friend.

Lastly I received the Billion Dollar Brows universal brow pencil MSRP-18$. This is actually what I’m most (only thing I’m) excited for. The pencil is actually really creamy and smooth and blends nicely. Something had to be awesome in the box!

I’m really hoping the next box will be bomb because this one is not exciting at all. It is still a very great deal but I won’t continue to be a charmer if I don’t like the boxes.

Till next time friends!

New Year, New Me?!

Such a cheesy saying I know. But a new year typically marks the start of changes we want to make. Whether we want to be more confident, thinner, more fit, less debt.. and so on. Today I am 28w4d pregnant. Fully in my third trimester and ready for everything this year is going to bring me.

Today I started the 30 days to healthy living (30dhl) challenge and I honestly couldn’t be more excited. I plan on sharing a little more of my pregnancy journey as well as my fitness and nutrition journey. I know this will be a huge year.

I wanted to explain the 30dhl a little bit because I realized many people had the wrong idea of what it is. First I would like to mention I have been studying health/nutrition for many years and have my master’s in public health. These aren’t just opinions, I will be stating facts. The program is not a lose weight quick fad diet, tho you can lose weight. You don’t have to work out tho physical activity will help you reach results and is always a good idea for your heart health. This program focus on detoxifying your body and teaching you how to FUEL your body with proper nutrition. Using Arbonnes products just makes it so much easier bc you only have to worry about one healthy meal a day and use the shakes to provide all the nutrition you need for the other 2 meals.

It seriously couldn’t be easier to be healthy. And as a pregnant lady I can feel so good about getting all the protein and nutrients and vitamins I need with little to no effort!

I feel the need to share this info because it seriously changes lives! Balances sugar with no spikes, no feeling hungry or depriving yourself through the day, just pure, beneficial nutrition.

If you have any questions please let me know! I get so excited about this stuff and I am so focused on helping people get healthier.

Happy New Year Babes!

Hey everyone! I hope everyone had a fun, safe new year. It was my husbands birthday yesterday so we made lots of food and hung out. Simple but that seems to be the life with kids and being prego.

I’m currently 28 weeks pregnant and I can not wait for this to be over. I feel bad saying that because there are so many women who would love to be pregnant but this has been a rough one for me.

Any ways, it’s a new year and for some reason we take that as a chance to set new goals and make changes. Even tho we literally can take those steps anytime. What are your resolutions for 2018? Here are mine:

  • Survive the last couple months of this pregnancy and delivery a happy, healthy baby.
  • Focus on my health. Nutrition will be huge for me and I’ve already started this but I will be getting more intense on this point.
  • Working out WILL be a priority. I feel I let taking care of everyone else take up so much time that I neglect myself.
  • I need to learn to love my body and self. Post baby bodies are not what Victoria secret models get because most of us do not have cooks, trainers, and nannies to take care of everything. I know it will take time but I will reach a place where I’m not crying in fitting rooms, hating how I look.
  • Focus on my business and my blog and post on a better schedule
  • Lastly it is always a focus of mine to be positive and spread good vibes. Patience is key. Life is hard and we shouldn’t make it meaner and harder than it already is.

2019 is going to be a huge year. I will be having a baby, my son will be a big brother, we will be moving, selling our house and buying a new one and my husband will start a new job.

I pray only the best for 2019 for all of us 💚

BoxyLuxe Dec Sea-Sun!

Guess what day it is my friends?! Today I got my Boxyluxe delivered! Last month was a bit aggravating to me bc my box came super late and it was just frustrating. But this month I will not get pissed because I actually got a tracking/shipment email and it arrived at a decent time!

Have you signed up for Boxyluxe or boxycharm? Charm comes every month and luxe comes every 3 months now. It is a little guilty pleasure of mine. I get excited to see what the months box brings and if I’ll use it or not. I have a feeling this will be a good box so let’s jump in!

First I got the Luxie rose gold complete face brush set. MSRP – 65$ These brushes are soo cute and super soft. I can’t wait to put these to the test!

Next I received the Spongelle body wash infused buffer. MSRP – 20$. These sponges are so convenient with body wash infused in the buffer, which exfoliates at the same time. I will be finding this guy a new home since Arbonne is all natural and is good for my skin. I don’t want to use anything else!

I received the Elemis pro collagen marine cream. MSRP – 89$. I will also be giving this cream away since I use the best skincare available for my skin and it’s natural and not chemical filled. But this cream has lots of great claims!

Then I received the Violet Voss Pro HG palette. MSRP – 45$. This palette is so beautiful and pigmented neutral palette. They are silky smooth and blend like a dream.

I also got another palette from Suva Beauty, the protégé palette. MSRP- 34$. It contains 6 highly pigmented shadows and 2 beautiful highlighters!

From Tarte I received a glitter lip paint. MSRP- 20$ This lippie is soo pretty!! I can not wait to give it a go on my lips! Also with that lippie I got the Grande Cosmetics grandemascara. MSRP- 25$. I can’t believe it is that expensive. I have received a few things from this brand now. I’m not impressed and the packaging feels sooo light and cheap.

Up next I got the Pretty Vulgar the powder room translucent setting powder. MSRP- 32$. Pretty Vulgar always kills it with packaging. The component is so stunning! I can’t wait to give this a try and see how it compares to my favorite Arbonne setting powder.

Lastly we also go a Crimes if Beauty wristlet and portable charger. MSRP- 22$. Wristlet is shown previously is super cute and I can’t wait to try out this portable charger!!

What do you guys think?? I’m pretty excited about it all and think I got a great value! Stay tuned with me on Instagram to see how things worked out!

April 2018 Boxycharm: Eye Candy!

It is that time of the month again… Boxycharm Unboxing day!!!! This months theme is Eye Candy and boy oh boy was this a great box! So let’s dive on in!IMG_5005

This month I got the Element Of Surprise eyeshadow palette by Colourpop retailing for 16$. The colors are so gorgeous in this palette. I love the shimmers and the bold, bright pink is the perfect pop of color that you don’t find in a ton of palettes.IMG_5010

Next I received a MAC cosmetics Liptensity Lipstick in the shade Burnt Violet- 21$. I have to say even though I really wanted this lipstick over the liquid highlighter which was another option that was sent, I don’t think it goes with the theme very well. It doesn’t look like a color for spring or look candy-ish. I still love it though!IMG_5011

Up next I received the Pores no more Vacuum Cleaner by Dr. Brandt- 47$. I love Dr. Brandt products, they always work so well and leave my skin feeling so soft and super clean!IMG_5012

Next out of the box comes The BrowGal – The Instatint: tinted eyebrow gel 22$. This particular eyebrow gel contains little hairs which not only help to tint your eyebrows but also fill them in as well.IMG_5014

Lastly I got two eyeshadow brushes by SL Miss Glam 38.50$. They are so soft and look super cute with the jewel detail. The duo comes with a blender brush and a brush perfect for packing on color. IMG_5013That’s it for this month! I already can’t wait for next months box!

March Boxy Charm!!

You have to know by now that this is my favorite day of the month. I mean, makeup has been delivered to my door!!! This months box was good and I’m so excited about it. From the sneak peeks I saw I couldn’t wait to get my fingers on the goodies.IMG_4243

So let’s jump in to the Bae-cation boxy charm box.

Let’s start out with the most exciting item which is the Pur cosmetics X Boxycharm eyeshadow palette. It is drop dead gorgeous. The peaches, the mattes, the shimmers, and my favorite summer color- a bright pop of blue. Retails 36$ and you can find it at Ulta or Purcosmetics.com. The colors are stunning and blend like a dream with major color payoff!                                        IMG_4250

Next a Mascara from Bellapierre Cosmetics. MSRP: 20$ This guy promises long lasting, volumizing mascara formulated to help create thicker and fuller lashes. After testing this one, it was a super disappointment. Not a huge deal since I wear false lashes but for the days I don’t… I will not be reaching for this at all.                                         IMG_4249

South Mane Beauty gave us Under Eye Gels for 10$ These make for a great easy mask without the clean up. They soften and moisturize to ensure that you look rested and refreshed.                                                                                              IMG_4246

The Vintage Cosmetic Company gave us a Smokey Eye Makeup Brush Set retailing at 23.15$ This brush set trio will enable you to create a stunning smokey eye. The brushes are so soft and who doesn’t love getting new brushes?? I know I’m a total addict. After testing these guys out I do like them for packing on color but probably won’t be my number one go to brushes. Still very nice tho! IMG_4248

I was so excited to get this Blush from Pretty Vulgar. I adore their packaging with the vintage look. I know Boxycharm sent out two shades and even though I didn’t get the shade I was hoping for, the one I got is still really pretty. The blush runs for 26$ The color I received was called Prim Vixen and it is so insanely bright.. Must go in with the lightest of hand.                                                                     IMG_4247

If you added that up, that is just over 115$ worth of product for only 21$!!!! I love this box so much!!! Definitely sign up while there is no waitlist!

30 Days of New New- ELF Cosmetics

Whoa whoa whoa!!! As you guys already know I am obsessed with ELF Cosmetics! They are so affordable and I would say about 90% of the time their products are BOMB!!! If you don’t already know they are currently doing 30 days of new new, as they are calling it. ELF is releasing a new product everyday for the month of September. I sort of have some love hate for this because I want to see everything they are coming out with and I already know I want multiple products and there is no way I am going to put in an order everyday I want something. A little crazy right? Not sure their thinking behind this. And boom. As soon as I say this, they release the whole collection!

Here are a few of the products they have brought out. Of course you can see them all on their website.

So far they have brought out some liquid lipsticks, silicone sponges/blenders, a brush set, highlighters, and bronzers, and much more. It is super exciting and I can’t wait till the end of the month so I just put in a huge order so I’ll upload a haul/review for y’all!!!

Currently still working on lots of Halloween looks. If you have any suggestions for looks you would like to see please leave me comments. Also Let me know in the comments what brands/collections are coming out with new things maybe for holiday!?

Talk to you Friday!

xoxo Erin
