YSL VoxBox Unboxing and Review!

A few weeks ago, I had the pleasure of receiving a very special and quite frankly, AWESOME VoxBox from Influenster. As many of you know, I LOVE VoxBoxes and I LOVE makeup, so this was a total win for me. This is the first VoxBox I've gotten that was dedicated to just makeup too, so it was double awesome. Yes everyone, meet my Yves Saint Laurent Mascara VoxBox!

The product I received is Yves Saint Laurent's Volume Effet Faux Cils Mascara in high density black. I'd never tried this brand before, but had heard great things since it's such an iconic, high end brand and was thrilled to have the opportunity to try it. I'm usually hesitant to buy really expensive high end makeup without having tried something from the brand first, so this was a win win for me.

Apparently, this is their original formula mascara that they have brought back. My opinion is that it is basically the best mascara I've ever used. I received it like right after I had just bought some Kat Von D mascara that I was loving, and it immediately took the place of it. This mascara has a beautiful black, black color and you can layer the hell out of it without any clumping whatsoever. I generally use like at least three layers of mascara every time I apply it, so this is perfect for me! It also lasts ALL DAY long and doesn't like flake off onto your face. Even though it lasts all day, it is quite easy to remove with a little eye makeup remover which is awesome too. 

Here's a photo of my results!

I probably should have tweezed my eyebrows before I took this huh? LOL Anyway, you can see here that there is no visible clumping and no fall out! My lashes are wonderfully voluminous without looking too heavy in my opinion!

I'm definitely interested in trying more products from Yves Saint Laurent now that I've tried this. Especially the eyeshadow and blush they are advertising with this VoxBox! I wish I'd received some for sure to go with this fabulous mascara! 

AND if anyone has any product suggestions from this line, feel free to let me know! If you have any questions, or want a referral to Influenster, don't hesitate to ask! I love comments!

Okay, seriously for anyone who is a Bride on a Budget, or just wants to be super cute in a low key wedding... This is like the most adorable dress I've never seen in my life.

Anyone going to a beach wedding this year??? I know I did last year, and I definitely would have rocked this awesome dress!! It's super bright and long enough to hide my hideous leg tattoo, so I can keep it classy. :) Definitely check this one out too!

February 2015 Birchbox Unboxing and Review!

Hi guys!  So I'm back from a pretty big unexpected hiatus and also a hiatus from subscription box reviews!!!!  I basically love them, and decided for my birthday to resubscribe to Birchbox for a bit!

For those of you who don't already know, Birchbox is a monthly subscription box that sends you 4-6 beauty, makeup, skincare, and lifestyle samples (sometimes even full-size!)  every month!  You also get points that you can redeem in their store for full-size versions of whatever you want, special boxes, gift subscriptions, etc. I LOVE their point system and it's one of the reasons I chose to resubscribe to BB over Ipsy. If you'd like to sign up or check them out, please, please use my referral link HERE!

On to the review!
This month was freaking wonderful in Birchbox land. I seriously couldn't have gotten a better box and everything I got will be used and perfectly matches my preferences. All my samples are decently sized too. Yes, no sucky foil packets for this lady! :)

First looks:

Everything all neatly packed and whatnot as usual.
I spy a FULL SIZE sample. ;D

Here's the card with my sample information & full size product prices. If anyone's interested. :)

Reebok #BeMoreHuman Campaign!

*Sponsored Post may contain affiliate links*

Hello, hello and Happy February!  My birthday month!

As many of you know, I'm a Reebok affiliate.  Today I have a pretty cool new ad campaign from Reebok to share with you called Be More Human, as well as a pretty fun new test as part of it!!!  I kind of love these little tests! I think my results were pretty accurate too! I'm really digging this new campaign and I like how it motivates you to work out your mind as well as your body. :)

Click HERE to take the Be More Human test on

Reebok Launches Largest Brand Campaign in Over 15 Years!
Be More Human. That’s the simple message in Reebok’s new brand campaign, the campaign launched on January 28th, and was highlighted by a Super Bowl TV spot with their new ad, titled "Freak Show"

Reebok’s mission is to help every individual realize their full potential in the mental, physical and social aspects of their lives, by encouraging a fitness-focused life, and creating the products to perform in the toughest environments and activities.

My Results:
Fit Spirit
"Namaste, Fit Spirit. Fit Spirits are highly-aware human beings in touch with their feelings and who always strive to achieve an inner-balance and peace. They see their well-being as a gift ¬– one they have no intention of squandering or abusing. Fit Spirits take care to put not only wholesome foods into their body, but also nourishing thoughts, knowing that their physical and spiritual health is intertwined. Ever humble, Fit Spirits accept that their physical body will decline with time but that their spirit will live on... "

Like I said, my results were pretty accurate. I'm a Pisces and consider myself super in touch with my feelings. :) Plus I'm always trying to learn new things. This is a really nifty test. You should check it out!!!

If anyone is a Shareasale member (or not and wants to sign up), and not already a Reebok affiliate, you can become one my using my referral link HERE. They're a great company to work with and send out tons of helpful tools for affiliates!!  Plus they offer bonuses and competitive commissions!!  :) CLICK  HERE TO SIGN UP!
