Happy Thursday everyone! I wanted to make a silly special announcement and let you know that today is the 10 year anniversary of Britney Spears having a breakdown and shaving her head. Apparently there is a Lifetime movie in the works about that and her relationship with KFed and I am soooooo down. But anyhow! Ipsy is here! If you don’t already know what Ipsy is, it’s a $10 monthly beauty subscription. I just started receiving this subscription again after a year break but before that, I received every bag starting with their second bag ever. You get 5 items, generally sample or travel sizes, sometimes full size. You never know but the value is usually pretty good. In the past, I haven’t always received items that felt personalized to me but they do claim to personalize your bag for you. In addition to the items, you do get a little makeup bag and sometimes that are SUPER cute.
Valentine’s Day falls on a Tuesday which means most of us are going to have a great “Second Monday” and work and then come home and try to switch gears. For me, I’ll be working, cleaning the house, cooking dinner and finishing the night with a bottle of wine with the hubby. We decided to go out to dinner this weekend because waiting in long lines to eat food isn’t our thing. Whether you’re going out with the ladies or have a romantic night planned, take a page out of my play book and switch gears with a relaxing bath loaded with Treets Traditions goodies!
BoxyCharm is here! I got this box a little earlier than I did last month because I subscribed a few month’s into January. There were some great spoilers for the February box so I was really excited for this box! Because it’s something I seem to always get asked; if you are thinking about subscribing you can subscribe anytime before the end of this month and get THIS BOX (Or a version of this box, I’ll explain which products all subscribers got and what the other versions include). So, if you’re vibing, get to subscribing!
If you’re looking for a last minute gift idea, I’d got a great one! When Ariana Grande first released her super sweet new scent Sweet Like Candy, it was hugely popular, Not only because of the adorable geometric bottle with attached poof, but because the deliciously sweet scent! It absolutely flew off shelves and just in time for Valentine’s Day, they’ve released a new RED HOT Limited Edition version of this favorite.
I feel like I find a way to tell people that there IS a subscription for THAT no matter what the topic. I’m happy to report that there is a subscription for those true Wine-o’s. This Valentine’s Day, it’s easy to gift wine with Winc Wines and their subscription! We got the chance to try out their questionnaire and sample a 4-bottle shipment! More below!
It’s almost Valentine’s Day so I wanted to share some lip-spiration! No matter what Valentine’s Day Vibes you want to put out there, I promise there is a lip shade out there for you! I pulled 10 of my favorite lip looks to fit any mood.
I’m not sure if I’m just lip obsessed or if this month’s box is truly fabulous or if it’s a delicious mix of both! You be the judge! If you’re not familiar with Beauty Box 5 (shame on you!), it’s a monthly subscription box that is $12 a month OR you can do what I always highly, highly recommend and get a full year of BB5 for just $99. That makes it the cheapest subscription of it’s kind!!
If you haven’t heard of Lauren B. nail polishes. I feel a little bad for you. They offer amazing polishes in both color and performance and I feel like I never get enough! Not only are they stunning on the nail, but their polishes are vegan-friendly and free of harsh chemicals like formaldehyde, DBP, toluene, formaldehyde resin and camphor. In other words, they cut out the bad stuff that you DON’T want on your nails all while creating stunning polish sure to make a statement! I mixed a classic red, some glitter and a neutral from their collection for some fun Valentine’s Day nail inspiration!

It’s almost the big day and soft, kissable lips are a must! I’ve been really into liquid matte lipsticks, like most of you, but sometimes my lips really need a break. A day off from those drying formulations doesn’t have to be boring and you can still add a pop of color! It got my hands on these Tinted Mineral Liplux by COOLA and I think they’re just what the (love) doctor ordered!
Hi, my name is Alison and I’m a size 16. (in case you wanted to know) I wanted to share some fun date night ideas for Valentine’s Day depending on what your plans are! I put together a few looks this year, but I wanted to share two looks. One for a first day or a going out look and one for staying in for more casual vibes! I’ve got a few more looks to share so be on the lookout for those! For more Valentine’s Day related posts, check out the event tab here!
