October Ipsy!


October Glambag


finally got my ipsy bag in the mail.

The first thing I saw when I opened it was


Ecru New York

Protein BB Cream for Hair

It feels like a lotion,  and does a good job smoothing fly aways.

This is 1/4th the full size.

I really have no idea how much the full size costs. Their website had no prices, and from what I could see, no way to buy anything.

That being said, if you can figure out their website use the code IPSY at checkout to get 20% off.

Next item is


Skin Iceland Glacial Cleansing Cloths

10 ct. Full size is 30 ct. For $15.

I’m a big fan of makeup remover wipes, for those nights I want to be lazy and makeup free.

These get the job done, but I think they feel too soapy. Maybe that’s a good thing.

Ipsy does have an awesome coupon code for the company’s website: Use the code IPSYGCC and get 50% off one item and 25% the rest of your order.



Figs and Rouge Hand Cream

This tiny tube (.67oz) is a full size product.

For $6.56 plus 15% off using the code IPSY.

My absolute favorite thing in my bag was


City Color BE MATTE Lipstick

In the color Cappuccino

I absolutely love this shade. It’s a neutral, that’s perfect for fall.

This beauty costs $5 plus 20% off using the code IPSY20ML.

And last and least (yes I mean least)


Jessie’s Girl Mineralized Baked Powder

In the shade Ocean Breeze

I’m not a fan of the color, and it has the texture of wet’n’wild eyeshadow. Not my cup of tea.

This retails for $3.99 and 20% off with the code IPSY.

So this bag’s total value is


Excluding however much the mysterious hair cream costs.

I am very pleased with ipsy this month, partly because this is the first bag I haven’t received an eyeliner in.


Walmart Beauty Box!

fall walmart box

Today I got my Walmart Beauty Box!

This is a seasonal subscription box, 4 times a year there’ll be one waiting in your mailbox.

I just ordered mine a few days ago and it’s already here!

It is a truely unbelievable price.

I’ll keep it a secret till the end of this post.

First we’ll start with this:


Neutrogena Nourishing Long Wear Makeup with Tone Correcting Complex

This is the same amount you’d get in a magazine, it’s a free sample.

It also has a $2 coupon.

Full size it costs $9.98.

It claims 100% of women saw improvement in their skins tone and texture.

Next up:

 20141014_154240_HDR-1Loreal Paris Youth Code Pore Vanisher

This product claims to instantly vanish the look of pores and shrink actual pore size in a month.

Full size price is 17.97.

walmart fall boxAbove is Nicki Minaj Pink Friday Perfume.

You can buy 1 fl. oz. For $29.97.

It does smell really great, but I can’t see me going out and speding 30 bucks on it.

Now for the bigger stuff.

20141014_154158_HDR-1Dove Advanced Hair Oxygen Moisture

These are a decent travel size.

This came with the shampoo, conditioner, and dry oil.

You can probably get about 3 washes out of this depending on your hair length, but the dry oil I’m guessing will last a while.

On to the full size products!

20141014_154116_HDR-1CoverGirl Glowing Nights

In the shade laserlight, which is black.

 Oddly enough, I can’t find this on walmart.com. The price on Amazon is around 5 bucks.

It really is a nice nail polish, but it’s black.

This is a ‘Fall’ box and all, I would’ve prefered a different fall color.

All in all, it’s good quality.

And lastly

glossy balm

 Loreal Paris Glossy Balm

Shade: Pink Me Up.

Another full size product.

It feels like a chapstick, and has the pigment of a lipstick.

Regular price is 6.99

All in all, you get $21 worth of full sized products. Throw in 6 samples, I think that’s a good deal.

Now for the price: FREE*

Technically the box is free, you just pay 5 dollar shipping. $20 a YEAR. 4 boxes a year, one to start out every season.

BoxyCharm Waitlist!

I’m excited to announce,  I’m off boxycharm’s dreadful waitlist. It was a long 4 days. I’m hoping since I’m off the waitlist so quickly that means they’ve resolved this new influx of subscribers.
I should have my first boxycharm here soon!
There will definitely be an un boxing blog.

BoxyCharm is 21 bucks a month including shipping and the preview for this month is the eclipse concealer pallette by coastal scents. Which, by the way is $19.99, without shipping so we’re already getting a good deal. BoxyCharm is a monthly subscription beauty box which only sends full sized products, and 5-7 products. Last month was worth a whopping 98 bucks!

My ipsy glambag should be here anyday. I’ll be sure to do an unboxing of it. I have a feeling I wont be getting ipsy too much longer if boxycharm is really all it’s cracked up to be.


I guess we’ll start out with a “get to know me blog”.

I’m a 22 year old,

stay at home mom of 2 beautiful curly headed toddlers.

I’m new to all this blogging stuff, so I hope I can get the hang of it to make this thing worth while to read.

My goal is to give give y’all a peek into my life, my views, and some reviews.

Only God knows what direction this will go, let’s hope it’s a good one.
