April Birchbox 2014

I had a few delays with my birchbox this month, which were beyond annoying and frustrating. I was less then excited to open my box since I already saw what I got online. So I just let it sit on my dinning room table unopened for a few days. Click down below to see what I got!

March Favorites


I have been really focusing of my beauty care routine more than what makeup I use. I really learned the importance of great hair care, and skin care!!

I recently got to use bareMinerals foundation loose powder because my mom gave me her starter kit since she didn't like it. Which I learned it's amazing and where has it been my whole life? Honestly what took me so long to try this? Review is definitely coming soon!! 

I picked up Maybelline Color tattoo in 55 Inked in Pink which I have been loving. I love using these cream shadows as bases/primer/as eyeshadow. They're so versatile! I love wearing it along with my pink shades in my NAKED3!

I've been loving my Clarisonic Mia 2 in my teal cheetah print! It's so cute! 

I tested Vasanti Brighten Up! In my first birchbox, and have been in love ever since. I just made a big order from Birchbox because I had points and a coupon code so I picked up a full size (Finally!) This thing is huge!

I've been wearing Wonderstruck by Taylor Swift a lot lately, it's such a nice vanilla subtle scent. Great to wear when working around others! 

I love me some Wen products. I love my lavender replenishing mist! Smells so calming and makes my hair soft! 

I've been recently trying out The Body Shop Vitamin E nourishing Nigh Cream. I've been breaking out a bit lately. I can't tell if it's from this or not. Like in the previous post I've been under a ton of stress lately. I'm going to wait for my skin to clear up before I try this again to see if it really is this causing me to break out. 


These are just some products I've been loving this past March and following into April. What were your favorites? Leave you links in the comments so I can catch up and check them out!!

Where I have been

I don't exactly have any big exciting, top secret news to share. I've been a bit too bummed and stressed out to post lately. My workplace environment hasn't been the best for awhile but this past month really got to me. I don't want to leave, but I want to cut down my hours. I honestly don't know what I want to do.

Because of that I've been applying to different jobs all over the place. I just had two interviews so hopefully one of them will hire me. Until then I'm just going to be chugging along.

School this semester has been kicking my butt too! Ugh le sigh the life of a college student.

I finally came back because I've been seriously missing reviewing and blogging! I may not have been posting but I still have been writing a little here and there as well as taking pictures! I may have been bummed but I haven't completely stopped what I was doing.

Well In March

My Pop-pop (and favorist person ever!! -- Sorry Mr. J!) Turned 89 years old!

In March there was St. Paddy's Day so I of course had to dress up, do my makeup and go out drinking with my friends! 




Had a blast with my friends and Mr. J, for a much need good time! 

I realized how amazing Zoya Pixie Dust polish really is and have been obsessively wearing the same 3 shades all the time! 




I ordered the QVC Today Special Value and fell in love with Wen 6-13 as well as stocked up on my favorite Fig!! 



I also did this awesome gel manicure with Gelaze For Audrey 

That's what I've been up to lately. Hopefully I'll start posting regularly again. I do truly miss it! I miss reading everyone else's blogs.

Born Pretty Store Review

Sample. Coupon Code.

As a lover of nail art, I like anyone else loves the Born Pretty Store for their prices and the quality of their items. I was thrilled when The BornPrettyStore asked me to work with them.

One of the items I received and already reviewed were the wax pencils. Here.  Those wax pencils make nail art unbelievably easy now! I love them!

Just look at how it just picks up an holds nail studs!

 Love it!! You can buy the pencils here.

Next I got to review their Heart Square Elliptic Round Hollow Stud Rhinestone Acrylic UV Gel Nail art w/box (Whoo! What a mouthfull!) I love the hearts and star studs in this! I used the stars in this manicure. I've used the other shapes as well. 


I do have to say I have very rounded nail beds. There's not a lot of flat space for them to sit so depending on the size of the stud or wear I placed the stud it wouldn't lay flat. I'm not blaming it on the stud, but I wanted to warn those who have rounded nail beds like I do.  

These studs work GREAT with Gel polish! I feel like they stay much longer and don't peel when I use them with gel! You can buy them here. 



I also got another nail art wheel this time it was fun colorful Rhinestones! They are always so fun to work with! I love adding a few here and there for an accent nail!

These work well with Gel polish as well. They don't lose their shine after you put on a top coat over top of them either. I would definitely recommend these! You can buy these here. 

I actually got to try one none nail art item. These really cute pair of earrings. They are pretty sturdy, but super heavy. I don't wear them often because of that. I also suggest using a bigger backing then the ones they give you.

These were okay, but I wouldn't really commend them.
As I said before BornPrettyStore sent me these items and I liked most of them a lot and would recommend them to use for nail art!



If you plan on shopping at the Born Pretty Store you can use this 10% off coupon just type in MEX31





I would recommend this store for the great nail art tools! Love it! It's cheap, and the quality is there.  Just a warning if you're shipping to the US just be prepared for a month wait for your items!
