I had several packages waiting on me when we got home… one of them being my Birchbox! I haven’t had a chance to use any of the products below, this is just a post to highlight what came in this month’s Birchbox.
Birchbox bobby pins: These are actually really cute and I was very pleased in receiving these! They are white with a gray/black criss-cross pattern.
Instain Long Wearing Staining Powder Blush: I thought the packaging was super cute because it looks like a magazine cover. Once opened, there is a sample of blush. The color looks very versatile, however this is a very small sample.
DDF Acne Control Treatment: I tried finding this product online to find the value of it, and a slightly larger tube costs around $40. This product is technically not “full-size” but in my opinion might as well be full size because it would last a long time if used as a spot treatment.
July’s Birchbox Rating: 3.0 out of 5 stars.
The Benefit cream was a plus, and I really liked that they threw in the acne treatment. However, I’m not pleased with the size of the blush as you would not get many uses from it. The hair spray is nice, but I’ve never heard of the brand which makes me a little iffy about it. And the two bobby pins I can live without. I subscribed to Birchbox for beauty products, not hair accessories.
We took a cruise from Florida to Cococay, Bahamas, then to St. Thomas and St. Maarten in the US Virgin Islands. We had such a great time. It was our first time ever going on a cruise and we felt like royalty the whole time.
St Thomas was by far our favorite island. The shopping was amazing and the beaches were breathtaking:
The following is Magens Bay Beach, it is named one of the top 10 most beautiful beaches in the world by National Geographic. The view is amazing and there were no waves which made the water crystal clear no matter how deep you went.
St Maarten was amazing also. The water was just as beautiful!
That is my honeymoon in a nutshell. We had such a great time and cannot wait to do it again. Makeup posts are coming soon! ❤
The honeymoon was amazing. The caribbean looked photoshopped because the waters and beaches were so breath-takingly beautiful! (Pictures coming soon, promise!) The hubby got internet today so be expecting a full post very soon! While I was gone I received several beauty boxes that I cannot wait to share with you. I also took advantage of duty-free shopping on my honeymoon and stocked up on some goodies. 😉 talk to you soon ladies!!
Sorry ladies, I have not neglected you. Ive been busy getting married!
Today has gone by so quickly and everything went perfectly. The wedding ceremony was short and sweet and my husband cried while saying his vows (luckily I held it together). The reception was perfect; the food was amazing and the flowers were beautiful and the honey wedding jar favors were a hit! As of right now we are driving down I75 headed to our cruise ship! We are so excited and blessed! My husband (that is weird to say) got me a Naked2 palette so I will definitely put up some DIY looks after the honeymoon. 🙂 here are a few pictures from today:
