Ipsy Glamour bag December 2018

I tried everything in my latest Ipsy bag! See what I think below

First the Grace & Stella dead sea mud mask. It was light in consistency with no scent. This mask doesn't dry so you can still laugh and sip your coffee. My skin felt good and I was happy.

Cake body cream smells like a baked treat and felt good going on.

Laritzy Cosmetics dew pot cream highlighter is a very pretty color and I am already using and enjoying it. The name of the color is Fine.

Ciate London liquid lip color it dries matte and the color was so pretty. I thought it would be too dark but I love it. Color Infamous which has little sparkles in it too. The color lasts a long time and even after it wore off I still had shimmer on my lips.

Stowaway effortless eyeliner it rolls up and the color is perfect with good staying power all day. Color I got was Jet.

A nice brush which you can never have too many of those! Already in my full time arsenal love it.
Also love the gold bag it came with.

After my mask and wearing the new makeup.

Here is my video review as well. If you have a minute please stop by like my video and subscribe to my new channel I will be reviewing all kinds of subscription boxes. Exciting!!

Stitch Fix my experience

I decided to try Stitch Fix because I wanted to see what a stylist would pick for me to wear. I think we all get stuck in a comfort zone when I comes to style. The trouble with that is you may not even being wearing something that compliments you! Remember the show What not to Wear? I always wanted to be on that show so this is as close as I can get by mail.

You can go online pick styles you like and even create a Pinterest board for your stylist. You pick the date you want to receive your outfits and pay $20 styling fee. The styling fee is taken off of whatever you purchase. It is free shipping both ways. Any items you don't want you just return in the bag they provide. 

I was most surprised by how well everything fit and that they did listen to what I liked, what I wanted to cover and show off. I didn't get any shoes or jewelry the first box but maybe in the next one I will. In my box I decided to keep one outfit the jeans and the off the shoulder top. I have gotten many compliments on them. When I ordered my second box they asked if I wanted a complete outfit, mix and match tops and bottoms which I chose or three other options. I thought about a complete outfit but like the idea of mix and match. I will blog about it once I get it. The brand of Jeans was Silver Jean Co. and the top was by Daniel Rainn.

If you would like to try Stitch Fix you can purchase a personally styled for you box here

Spun Sugar, Sandalwood and Cat's Claw Perfectly Posh ingredients to pamper with

Two products I will never stop using is The Perfectly Posh bath chunks & The Big Fat Yummy Hand cream. My skin gets very dry naturally and from over washing my hands. This is the first hand cream that has stopped my cuticles from tearing and my hands from bleeding. It dries very quickly which is good because if I put on lotion the phone will ring immediately!  The bath chunks are great too. I in the past would never spend $10 on a bar of soap but the quality is so good you can see the difference in my skin. These are bath chunks and don't have harsh or harmful ingredients, think of it as a cleanser for the skin.

Now for the fun part because yes skincare should be fun and luxurious. The scents change often so you never get bored. I always look forward to what is in the new season. These are the two latest that I have been enjoying.

Let's Spoon BFYHC It has spun sugar and creamy sandalwood

You could use a Hug bath chunk with cat's claw bark and cotton extract

My Little Kitchen Blue Apron my experience

I had seen ads for Blue Apron for months and thought I would love to try it but I waited. I looked at reviews and blog posts and finally bought my first box. What did I learn? I was never truly cooking just preparing average food. I have been working with Blue Apron for over a year now and it has literally taught me how to cook delicious meals with or without their boxes and how to shop for spices and ingredients. I also have learned what should always be in your pantry. I highly recommend trying the box at least once you may be surprised how much you love it. You get these large recipe cards which I put in a binder so I have built a cook book too.

Everything you need is included in each box and measured so there is no waste. You will need olive oil, salt and pepper which hopefully is already in your pantry. You can pick the meats or vegetarian plan you like. Options include to skip any week and change your menu around to match your budget and taste. Cost for 3 meals for 2 people is $59.95 free shipping. 

I am posting some of my favorites below. If you would like a Blue Apron box you can purchase them here. You can see more pictures on my IG account I have cooked so many.

                              Caribbean Chicken Curry with roasted plantain & coconut rice

Greek Chicken with olive tapenade and creamy orzo

Bulgogi Beef and Soba Noodle Stir Fry

Seared beef medallions with prince of orange potatoes & caper butter pan sauce
