September 2017 - Boxycharm Unboxing, Review, Swatches and Makeup Try-on!

Boxycharm is a beauty subscription box for $21.00 a month + $5.00 shipping to Canada (shipping is free to the U.S.) Boxycharm sends 4 to 5 full size and luxury size beauty items. 

This subscription focuses heavily on make-up items - so that is something to keep in mind! While it is a little pricier than the more inexpensive beauty boxes, the majority of the products are full size, with a deluxe sample every once in a while. 

Every subscriber generally receives the same products, but their is usually 1 or 2 items that have a few variations, so our boxes may not be identical! 

Here is a look at my September Boxycharm:

September 2017 - Boxycharm Unboxing, Review, Swatches and Makeup Try-on!

This month's theme is "Boxy Baddie" and Boxycharm always includes a detailed product card explaining the items that were included in each month's subscription.

Tarte Make Believe In Yourself: Eye & Cheek Palette - Thoughts and Swatches!

Despite what most of my blog posts might show, I actually think I'm pretty good with self-restraint and not buying every new makeup launch! So, when Tarte released their Unicorn Make Believe in Yourself collection in April in actually told myself that I didn't need it and was good... until now, because it's on sale!!! And, I can only resist something so much - sales i'm a total sucker for!!! 

Tarte Make Believe In Yourself: Eye & Cheek Palette - Thoughts and Swatches!

Tarte Make Believe In Yourself: Eye & Cheek Palette ~ $52.00 CAN (currently on sale for $39.00!). A kaleidoscopic, unicorn-inspired eyeshadow palette with 10 radiant shadows and a strobing eye and cheek highlighter. The make believe in yourself eye & cheek palette features hypnotic shades that can be layered with the matte base and the strobing eye and cheek highlighter for a multi-faceted, fairy-like glow. Infused with Amazonian clay and mineral pigments, the silky-soft formula blends to a fine, long-lasting finish without any fallout or chalkiness. 

This palette is stunning! The packaging is gorgeous and the shadows included are so pretty! I'm surprised I waited so long to buy this! I love shimmer shadows on my lids and this has a really great range! The middle shade can be used a highlighter for under the brow or the cheeks. This comes with 9 shimmer shadows and 1 matte.

Manicure Monday - Best Recent Nail Art Looks!

Happy Manicure Monday everyone! So, I told myself that when I had a baby, I was always going to have girl time and paint my nails every week; but, finally this week I am going to eat my words! Little Elliott is teething so much and despite all the little teething toys, his favorite thing to chew on? Mommy's hand! So, I just can't put any fresh polish on these babies this week! I'm hoping by next week things improve and I can go back to normal! 

Since I haven't done a favorites post in a few months, I thought I would recap some of latest favorite nail art! 


Eeeek - how cute are these little pandas?! I love how they turned out (especially the thumb!) and they were surprisingly easy to do! You can check out my original post here

I usually take Sundays to talk about Skincare; but, today I'm switching things up! Let's talk about selfcare!

I will be honest, until I received these products I hadn't really thought about what ingredients were in my feminine hygiene products - really, I just bought whatever was on sale to help deal with Aunt Flow.
