Birchbox Exposed Pt. 2

This week has been CRAZY busy for me as I am preparing for a 6 day business trip. I leave tomorrow for Frisco, TX and then head straight to Philadelphia, PA on Saturday for 4 days.

I was hoping to get my Birchbox reviews done one at a time this week, but it looks like I will have to double up.

Oh well, that means more product in less time for you!

PRODUCT: ORIBE Dry Texturizing Spray Purse size

DESCRIPTION: A fine spray that adds texture and volume to boring second-day hair.

POSITIVES: It doesn’t leave a residue like dry shampoos. It adds volume and texture like stated. It smells FABULOUS!

NEGATIVES: It does not get rid of shine/grease that your old hair style may have produced like dry shampoo does.

WOULD I PURCHASE MORE: Probably not. The price is a bit more than I would spend on something I didn’t love. I recommend UNITE 7 second dry shampoo, and it is more affordable.

PRODUCT: EBOOST Health Booster Tablets (Orange Flavor) 10 tablets

DESCRIPTION: Effervescent tablets that dissolve in 8 oz. of water to boost energy, immunity and curve appetite

POSITIVES: I did not like this product

NEGATIVES: I am very picky about things like this, and I did not like that I could taste the vitamins in the product. It also took over a minute to dissolve into the water and on top of that I felt terrible the day after I drank it.

WOULD I PURCHASE MORE: Absolutely not. The only way I will finish the bottle I have is to maybe blend them into a smoothie to trick myself.

Have you tried any new products lately?

Birchbox Exposed

If you are not a member of Birchbox, you are seriously missing out! It known for its monthly subscription of top-of-the-line trial beauty supplies, and it is only $10 a month! I purchased a subscription for my roommate for Christmas, and I was getting seriously jealous of her monthly package of surprise goodies, so I purchased a box for myself.

I bought the Gorgeous On The Go box for myself, and sent the Here Comes The Bride box to my sister for a little de-stressing surprise. My box had 7 great things for an active lifestyle.

Next week I will be featuring a different one of the products each day with a run-down of my opinion. Stay tuned for more information!

Cream of the Crop

I was having a conversation with my roommates last night about colored denim, and we got on the subject of cream colored jeans. I had looked a while back for some, but was not successful. Our conversation kept coming up in my mind, so I decided to do a little search today to see if anything popped up, and oh boy did it! I found these amazing TWENTY8TWELVE by S.Miller cream colored skinny jeans for 80% off!!

What do you think?

Not Really Neutral

I am loving the pieces that are being used this fall as neutrals, that are not your typical neutral. Leather, prints and glitter, Oh my!

Deborah Lippman + Aldo + Rebecca Minkoff + Boutique 9

What pieces are you pairing with EVERYTHING?

Morning Routine

Every day brings different adventures, but every morning seems to have the same routine. Here are a couple of products that are a part of my morning routine,  I could not live with out.

BaByliss PRO Nano Titanium straightener: This straightener allows for you to change the temperature, and it heats up in under one minute.

Keurig single cup coffe maker: I love being able to wake up and make a single cup of coffee, in whatever flavor I am feeling for the day, in a couple of minutes.

Maybelline Full ‘N Soft Mascara: AMAZING mascara! It is the perfect amount to get you through the day without getting clumpy or being “too much”.

Do you have any GO-TO products to get your day started?

Poncho Paradise

As fall rolls around, I am loving the idea of ponchos. I have never been a poncho fanatic before, but I have purchased my first, and I am ready for some cooler weather to try it out. My favorite thing about ponchos is the texture it can add to a very bland outfit. Below are a few that I have found, including the one I recently bought!
Free People + ZARA + Alice+Olivia + Hinge

Share your poncho purchases!
