The Beauty Corner (Birchbox January 2016)

This is my favorite Birch Box so far! The Real Chemistry 3 minute peel and the Eyeko eye marker are both amazing.

Eyeko Eyemarker: I love it. Perfect for anyone and I used it on my water line with no irritation.

Real Chemistry Peel: This peel is amazing perfect for the regular person who is not an Esthetician but wants results like she or he was. No irritation and amazing results. You spread the gel on your face and the dead skin begins to mix up with the gel. I was very skeptical that it would work but it really did! It is a bit pricey but worth it.

P_r lisse BB tinted Moist cream SPF 30: Nice and creamy good coverage no build up.

Number 4 super comb prep & protect: I'm glad to be getting a lot of hair products. I like it, really does help comb out hair after you wash it without weighting it down.

Klorane gentle dry shampoo with oat milk: another good spray on dry shampoo totally works. My hair loves it because I have added and extra day of not shampooing the old using water way.

The box was super cute and came with motivational stickers!

Flower Power

Perfectly Posh has a few sets which I really like. I like a set because it usually gives you more bang for your buck. This Flower Power set had everything I wanted, body whip with coconut oil & glycerin, shower gel Floral patchouli and green tea blend fragrance and a face mask with a rich blend of palm, glycerin, and hyaluronic acid. The shower gel smells so good leaves your skin soft and with a light scent. The body whip is not as strong of a fragrance and is a light crème. The face mask is an overnight treatment or you can wash it off after 15 minutes. I would classify this as a set for normal and aging skin types. There is a second set that would be good for oily skin which is called Black Cherry Attack. Both of these would make nice gifts or a treat for yourself.

Restyling jewelry

I'm not sure how Betsey Johnson would feel about me turning her earrings into necklaces but that is what I did. I had my eye on this haunted house piece since before Halloween. At this point in my life I need very light dainty earrings, but necklaces I like all kinds. I took two old chains, one I have no memory of buying and the other came from an antique store. I got loops from Michael's craft store and with plyers and a bit of help this is how they turned out.

I love them both but the haunted house is my favorite. Which one do you like better?

Renewing Mind, Soul & Body

I'm not one to set goals at New Year, but I have noticed I am not feeling well lately. I have to tweak a few things in my life. One thing would be eating fruit instead of Oreos. I can eat a whole package of cookies in a few days and not touch one piece of fruit. Sometimes being naturally skinny is bad because you can get so unhealthy and not be motivated to change. Just in the last year I have been tired and some days I don't think I will make it. So I have a few things I'm going to do that I should be doing anyway.

My list:

1. Exercise:  I do get Aerobic most days but I need to add some Yoga and weights. I'm starting with  5lbs don't laugh.


2. Eat fruit and vegetables: I really don't so I just have to make myself. I'm going to make a check list so that I keep tabs on myself.

3. Stress: I have a few things in my life that cause extreme stress. I cannot change those things so I will schedule some quiet time with meditation everyday.

4. Cut down on social media: I need to cut that cord social media can be depressing. I don't know why that is, maybe because it is unnatural to be with a electronic device all the time. I have to find at least 2 days a week where I just disconnect.

5. Drink water: In the summer I drink water. The rest of the year I drink coffee. I love coffee but I'm sure I am dehydrated most of the time. I am committing to 1 liter a day to start.

6. Writing: I love to write and I have neglected my craft. I have many poems that have been published as well as my poetry book.

7. Schooling: I need to take some makeup courses that I have been putting off. I love being a Makeup Artist and should not neglect opportunities to improve my artistry.

The Beauty Corner (Birchbox December 2015)

Malin & Goetz clarifying mask: It is a clay mask with a scrub in it. I'm confused why they sent it to me since Acne is the one box I didn't check in my survey but I will use it on someone else.
Coastal Scents Eye shadow Pallet: Pretty colors
Coola SPF 30 cucumber moisturizer for face: I love the scent so much that I will be motivated to apply this SPF daily
Soap & Paper Factory Hand Cream: Great for dry hands which I always seem to have. The scent is a nice green tea.
The Beauty Crop highlighting cream: This is too heavy of a shimmer for face but it looks amazing on shoulders.
