unbagging ~ IPSY love ~ May 2017 ] Urban Decay, Mellow, Pur~lisse, IT, Briogeo

Ipsy has always been one of my favorite subscriptions. I’ve been doing the snippets of reviews of the products, and their matching software has matched me up with the best possible products. I tried to quit once or twice, but always go right back to them because they have me so well figured out.




Here’s what was in this month’s bag:

Mellow Cosmetics Creamy Matte Lipstick in Nude – I think this is full size
Pur~lisse BB Tinted Moist Cream SPF 30 in Light – I’m very excited to try this
Urban Decay Afterglow in Sin – gorgeous highlighter
Briogeo Rosarco Milk™ Reparative Leave-In Conditioning Spray – perfect thing for me
IT Cosmetics Superhero Elastic Stretch Volumizing Mascara in Black – traded this for the Trestique

The little magnetic box I showed in this video can be found at the following Amazon link

Unboxing ~ Birchbox ~ May 2017 ~ lovely box

Birchbox is such a lovely box, though this one isn’t quite as high in RV as the previous box was. We shall see what the next couple boxes hold. Nothing in my subscriptions is definite except my Ipsy bag, which is always good.




Here’s what was in this box (none of the items are full size):

Beauty Protector Protect and Detangle – RV $2.94
Coola Mineral SPF 30 Daydream Makeup Primer – RV $7.14
Etat Libre d’Orange cologne sample – 0
The Beauty Crop Fabulous Flocking Lashes – travel size – RV $4.33
Whish Firming Body Cream – RV approx. $5.40

So sorry if you hear a hum. After working on it for hours today, I’m throwing in the towel and returning the AC adaptor cord. It was lovely to be able to record without changing the battery so often, but if it ruins the sound quality for everyone (especially for those of you who watch on a smart TV), then it’s not worth it to me – I want to make sure you all can enjoy the videos. So back to regular Canon batteries I go.

Unboxing ~ BeautyFix May 2017 ~ mostly samples = box fail

Here is a BeautyFix box that I was a bit disappointed with, mainly because of all the sample sizes. I’m not sure how long I will be subscribed to this box, since I am trying to downsize my collection, however it is usually all skin and hair care, which I can live with, plus it usually adds up to well over $100.




Here are the items in the May box, along with links to find the items online:

NuFACE Prep-N-Glow Cloth - sample – RV $1
SmartFX SmartLash Advanced – FULL SIZE - $49.95
TULA Skincare Hydrating Day and Night Cream – travel size – RV $15.30
AHAVA Mineral Hand Cream Sea-Kissed – travel size – RV $9.60
Vita Liberata Ten Minute Tan – travel size – RV $5.20 
CoTZ FACE Natural Tint SPF 40 – sample size – RV $2.35
Manna Kadar Cosmetics Runway Ready – travel size – RV $16.80 
Replenix All-trans-Retinol Enriched Eye Repair – travel size – RV $35.70 

TOTAL = $149.90

Unboxing ~ Love with Food [snack box] ~ Tasting Box version

I thought this box was worth a try. I got it just one time and got it at a discount, which is available to everyone until June 1st, and I’m sure they run specials all the time. This is the least expensive box in their extensive options.

Project No Buy ~ join me ~ time for some minimalism?

This 30 day no buy was created by Abby Esbenshade O'Keefe (here’s alink to her video) and she started a Facebook pagefor the group. I had been considering a no buy for a while, then I saw Abby’s video and jumped right in. I started on May 9th, but you could start a no buy any day. I had multiple items that I bought before the no buy started, so you’ll still see those (mostly Mother’s Day stuff).

Book reviews ~ Letters to a Young Writer by Colum McCann & Vanishing Act by Thomas Perry

Here are two book reviews for you, one fiction and one non-fiction. I highly recommend both, depending on what your interests are.




Letters to a Young Writer: Some Practical and Philosophical Advice byColum McCann – this is serious and funny at the same time and the perfect book whether you’re just interested in writing, or you’ve been writing. It’s very encouraging - http://go.magik.ly/ml/50o2/

Vanishing Act (Jane Whitefield Book 1) by Thomas Perry – this is a suspense novel that does contain a lot of backstory, but the character development and suspense make it worth reading. There are many plot twists in this book that keep you glued to the page. Plus, it’s always best to read the first in a series, even if you skip around with later books - http://go.magik.ly/ml/50o4/
