Hey Guys,
Today I'm going to share my thoughts on my BoxyCharm Premium for April! For those of you unfamiliar with BoxyCharm, it is a monthly beauty subscription box. You receive 4-5 full sized products each month. The subscription is $25.00 a month and usually has a theme. You are now able to pick one item in your box each month but it is more of a this item or that. Not any item in your box. BoxyCharm Premium is their second subscription offering which is $35.00 a month and you get 6-7 full sized products. You are able to pick one item from your box. Lastly, they also offer an upgraded box every quarter called BoxyLuxe. This is an additional $28.99 a quarter. I am only currently subscribed to BoxyCharm Premium. The theme for this month was Boxy Vibing or Spring into Boxy. I think there was a bit of confusion on the theme this month as it may have changed. Keep reading to see what I got and to hear my thoughts. Also, make sure to check out the discount codes below for the month!

Hey Guys,
Today I'm going to share my thoughts on my Ipsy Glam Bag Plus for May! For those of you unfamiliar with Ipsy Glam Bag, it is a monthly beauty subscription box. You receive 5 deluxe/sample sized products each month. The subscription is $12.00 a month and usually has a theme. They also offer an upgraded box every month called Ipsy Glam Bag Plus. This box is $25.00 a month and includes 5 FULL SIZED products. They also offer another box called Ipsy Ultimate which I believe was created to compete with BoxyLuxe. This box is $50.00 a month and includes 8 FULL SIZED products and 4 deluxe/sample sized products. I am currently only subscribed to Ipsy Glam Bag Plus. All subscriptions come with a makeup bag (different sizes per subscription type)  and you are able to pick one product in your box (GBP & GBU). With Glam Bag you are able to pick two. You are also able to skip a month whenever you feel like which is a huge bonus offering.
Review: Ipsy Glam Bag Plus May 2020
The theme for May was "Ipsy Get That Glow".  I was pretty excited about this box when I saw the spoilers and choice options. Keep reading to see what I got and to hear my thoughts. Also, make sure to check out the discount codes below for the month!

Quick At Home HIIT Workouts

Hey guys,
My blog has been strictly about beauty and fashion for the past 6-7 years and I've decided to switch things up a bit. While I still plan to mainly talk about beauty and fashion I want to incorporate some lifestyle posts into it as well. Yes, beauty/fashion is a huge passion of mine but I also love home decorating, food, and working out. From time to time I am going to post some different content on my blog. It might be a recipe that I really loved or a home fashion haul or something workout related.


Quick At Home HIIT Workouts
Today I am going to share some of my favorite quick workouts that I do at home that do not require any equipment. I have more workout equipment than your average person. I have a bunch of Olympic weights and a Concept 2 Rower left from my ex husband. I also have a kettle bell, a sled, and a treadmill that I bought off of Craigslist. I have a small one car garage where most of my equipment lives and where I work out half of the time. While its easy to work out in my garage in the summer, the floors are not finished and I still park my car in there so it can get pretty dirty in the winter. Because of that and the fact that it gets pretty cold in there in the winter,  I have found some quick HIIT (high intensity interval training) workouts online that I can do in my own living room. They also do not require any equipment.

Most of my workouts are between 8-20 minutes long. I always warm up on my treadmill first running a mile each time which equates to about 10 minutes for me. I usually do an ab workout later in the night as well.

Spring Fashion Wish List
Hey Guys,
I hope everyone is staying safe and finding things to stay busy during this crazy time in the world. I have been home for over a month and am starting to get a little antsy. As much as it pains me to write this my trip to Italy in May is postponed (until when? who knows). I have been preparing for this trip for quite a while and had purchased a bunch of clothes from Fashion Nova. I also have an Amazon Fashion wish list for it as well. I haven't really purchased too much since everything went down besides food and wine (and my month subscription boxes). I have been trying to think of fashion content that I could create and since outfit of the day most likely won't happen any time soon I decided to share my Spring Fashion wish list. These are things that have been in the back of my mind that I wanted to purchase for my trip. I have been living in sweatpants and leggings lately but they are pieces that I can also wear once everything is somewhat back to normal. Keep reading to see we what's on my list!

Review: Ofra Cosmetics x Samantha March Collection

Hey Guys,
Today I'm going to share my thoughts on the Ofra Cosmetics x Samantha March Collection! For those of you unfamiliar with Ofra Cosmetics, they are a cruelty free beauty brand out of Florida that is most known for their highlighters and liquid lipsticks. Ofra Cosmetics was created by Ofra Gaito and is a family owed/run business. Samantha March is an author (Amazon page here) and beauty influencer/YouTuber. I don't know Samantha on a personal level but we have crossed paths in the beauty community through influencer groups and events. Samantha is such a sweet, humble, and genuine person. I decided to pick up the whole PR Collection Box when it first launched last month to support her. Keep reading to hear more about the collection, to see swatches, and to hear my thoughts on each product!

Hey Guys,

Today I will be sharing the March edition of Beauty Box Throw Down. In this review I will be sharing what I got in both my BoxyCharm and my Ipsy Glam Bag Plus. BBTD is very similar to the regular reviews that I do where I show the products, link the products, share my thoughts, and the box total value. However, the difference with this is that I will also let you guys know which box that I think is a better value. Since I just cancelled my base box for Boxy charm, this will be my last Beauty Box Throw Down. So lets jump right in and see what I got!
