Awakening in a box

I just received my second box which is the January box. I really enjoy this subscription box it is very different and I love learning the meaning of each crystal. You can also watch me open the box on my YouTube Channel which is posted in the bottom of this post.

Do you have crystals? What is your favorite?

The stone in the cage necklace is a Nephrite Jade

Nephrite Jade is often used in dream work, to help with lucid dreaming, and with remembering dreams. Nephrite Jade carries a revitalizing energy that can help to speed healing. It is a stone of health and abundance, allowing Divine energy to enhance the circumstances of life. More info

I wanted a nice case to keep my crystals in and I found this one at a thrift store.

This is my box opening too.

Ipsy Glam Bag January 2019

I got my Ipsy January! I have tried the products and my opinion is below. I also posted my bag opening video if you want to see my first reaction.

If you have never tried Ipsy it is a beauty bag subscription you get 5 items and a makeup bag. Most items are samples but generous samples. Many times I do get full size products so don't think it is only samples. It is $10 a month free shipping and you can skip any month you like. To see more or subscribe go here.

Color club in Feverish. This color is dark but I'm sure it will come in handy. I may give it to someone since I don't wear nail polish anymore.

Fluide lip gloss in Elsewhere. I like a blue tinted lip gloss the package is cute and it was not sticky. Who doesn't want their smile to look whiter.

Nomad cosmetics highlighter in midnight sun. I really like this highlighter I have so many but this one was so good the rest got bumped.

Tarte foundation. I wore this all day yesterday and it does have good coverage and wear. The color light neutral worked perfectly for me. I may buy this one in the full size. I am wearing it day too and I really like it!

Yensa 2 in 1 smells like pumpkin spice.

Perfectly Posh Launch January 2019 new products

Perfectly Posh just launched 40 new products for their new pink ink book. I am really excited about so many products but my budget had me pick two. As I buy and try new ones I will review them for you. At the bottom of this post you can watch my YouTube video which gives more detail and first reaction.

So what did I pick? Well I am obsessed with how good the Big Fat Yummy hand cremes work on my hands and cuticles so I picked one of those in Show me what your Mermaid of. It is melon and coconut and to me it just smells very tropic neither scent is overwhelming they just blend perfectly together.

Second product I got was the new so soapy soap in Beach Blanket I need more coconut in my life. This has four types of coconut to create a good lather which is something the chunks don't do. Well I am happy to report it did lather nicely and feels very creamy. Very luxurious and I know good for my skin.

One last product which I got sample of was the Right Back at Ya cleanser/mask. You can use it as a cleanser or a mask. I decided to try it as a cleanser then left it on as a mask. It doesn't have a scent really but felt good on my skin. It is skin balancing with sulfur, salicylic acid, lactic acid, green tea and kale.

Have you seen or tried the new products?

What to wear to a movie premiere

If you have followed me for a while you know I was a makeup artist in a film. Production was in 2017- 2018. It is now complete and about to premiere January 2019! I wanted something special to wear to the event so I decided to write Stitch fix. A professional stylist is a treat and will get me wearing something really nice. They sent me four options two dresses and two jumpsuits. One pair of high heel boots. Even though the boots are so cute I would be 6' 2" in them and that is out of my comfort zone.

Tell me which outfit you like the best and how you would accessorize it.

More info on Stitch fix. You pay a $20 styling fee which is credited to anything you buy in your fix. You get five items which is clothes, jewelry and/or shoes. You have three days to decided but I asked for an extension and now have an extra three days. You can keep it all and get a discount, return it all or keep certain items. You also write your stylist to request what you are looking for. It has been a really amazing experience for me. You can do monthly, quarterly or just as needed it is really a win for me. If you would like to try stitch fix or get more information you can use my link which also gives you $25 credit to your first fix.
