February 2016 Birchbox

Birchbox is so much fun.  I am not a makeup person but decided to try birchbox to see new products and learn how to use others.

You get 5 items in a cute box for $10.  They are sample sized but worth more than $10.  If you love the product you can buy the full size.  If you review your items you earn points that add up to $ and can be used to purchase full sized items.

My February 2016 Birchbox came and I Love everything inside.  If you would like to give it a try use my referral code.  I will get credit points to buy full size products.  https://www.birchbox.com/invite/s3j52

  1. amika Perk Up Dry Shampoo: Full size $24

The weightless spray absorbs excess oil and dirt, leaving locks clean and deodorized as well as lighter and softer. Made with antioxidant and fatty acid-rich obliphica oil, the formula simultaneously moisturizes and strengthens hair, repairs split ends, and enhances shine. Moreover, amika’s dry shampoo relies on rice starch instead of aluminum shavings or talc, and it’s safe for color-treated hair. Shake can vigorously. Hold 10–12 inches away from scalp and spray gently, concentrating on roots. Massage through hair with fingertips, and style as desired.

Easy to use and great for when you are on the go and just can’t get that shower in right away.

2. Marcelle New age 8 in 1 power serum: full size $36

This lightweight antiaging gel starts to work in just a week, providing eight transformative benefits in one tube. When it comes to lines, it smooths, provides a filling effect, and visibly reduces even deep wrinkles. It also firms, lifts, and strengthens, while working to boost radiance and improve the texture of your complexion. Even better: It does all of this without parabens, gluten, or fragrance. Use daily for best results

Rub on and makes your face feel silky smooth.

3. Living proof.® Restore Mask Treatment: Full Size $42

repairs dry, damaged hair: It also makes it up to 20 times stronger. The secret lies in a special molecule, OFPMA, which smooths and coats the hair shaft, helping it retain much-needed moisture and resist future damage. The formula is free of sulfates, silicones, and oils (which can weigh down fine hair), and safe for chemically- and color-treated strands

I have not tried this yet but am excited to give it a go

4. ARROW BOOST Color Enhancing Lip Balm: Full size $14

Formulated to adjust to your unique pH, it enhances each wearer’s natural lip color to create the perfect, just-for-you hue. Nourishing ingredients like mango seed butter hydrate and protect lips, and the lightweight, subtle formulation allows it to go wherever you do—from pre-work yoga to a lunch date to happy hour. Another perk? It boasts a lovely minty scent. Like all products in the ARROW collection, it is vegan, paraben-free, cruelty-free, and gluten-free.

Love this product and may buy the full size.  It does enhance the color of my lips and works on chapped lips as well.

5. True Moringa Lavender Facial Oil: Full size $26

this lightweight facial treatment, cold-pressed moringa oil offers its powerhouse blend of essential fatty acids and antioxidants, while lavender essential oil provides incomparable soothing hydration. Working together, the two luxe oils moisturize and calm irritated, dry skin to reveal a smooth, supple, and glowing complexion

I haven’t tried this yet but will soon and report back

Stitch Fix #15 Review

Stitch fix is awesome!!  I get to stay in style and I don’t have to go shopping.  I get a box delivered to my door each month with 5 pieces of clothing inside.  I decide what I want to keep and return what I don’t.

This is my 15th box and I am still in love with this service!!

First I got the Laila Jayde Regeena Side Slit knit Top $58

100_0469100_0468100_0476 Great Shirt.  Love the material, color, style.  The slits in the sides are awesome BUT it looked terrible on me.  So sadly I will be returning this shirt 🙁

Item #2  Kut From the Kloth Denna Skinny Jean $78

100_0475

I really like these.  They are comfortable and definitely my style.  I am unsure about this pair though because of the length.  They are on the longer side and they don’t fit my legs like skinny jeans do.  They are very loose.  I still like them though and that is why I am undecided.

3rd Item: Market & Spruce Jahana Cargo Vest $68

100_0477100_0471

The vest is pretty neat and VERY similar to the popular jacket that stitch fix has.  I really like it but it will be going back because when zippered it is snug on me.  I also like side pockets to put my hands in and these only have the front.  Very cute but not workable for me.

4th item: 41 Hawthorn Presley Colorblock button down back sweater

100_0479100_0473100_0480100_0474

Love this sweater.  It is a lightweight sweater and the back detail is so cool.  I will be keeping this item!!

#5 Item: Cambrai Ramsdell Button Down Top $58

100_0478100_0466

I didn’t think I would like this top at all when I pulled it out of the box.  I put it on and I didn’t hate it.  It is so soft.  It is tight in my shoulders though.  I have that problem often.  I also can’t button all of the buttons.  So this will be going back as well.

 

Even though I may only be keeping 1 or 2 items out of 5 I still love stitch fix.  I have tried and loved so many items that I wouldn’t have even considered in a store.  If you do keep all 5 items you get a 25% discount.

Graze Subscription Free 4 pack

I have wanted to get the Graze Subscription for my husband for a while now, but didn’t know much about it.  I found a code online to get a free 4 pack to try.  Well he LOVES it.  He loves to snack and this gives him different items that we have never tried before. They come in these sealed little containers so they can easily be put in a lunch box or purse. You get to also customize your snack preferences so you are not receiving an item that you dislike.

100_0449

We received strawberries and cream granola.  This is so good.  We put it on greek yogurt!!  Sour cream and onion crostini.  This was his favorite item in the box.  It had a great taste.  Butterscotch popcorn flapjack.  And Tuscan pesto kern pops. These were really good as well.  So this box was a 4/4 for us.

My first Pair of LULAROE Leggings!!

100_0448

Oh my!!  I am not a legging person at all.  I have huge thighs and therefore stay away from this type of clothing.  But I was invited to a Lularoe pop up party online so I thought why not?  I ordered a pair and got them in the mail yesterday.  I wore them today to give them a try since I only had a few things to do today.  Well these things are so soft and they don’t look too bad on me and my huge thighs.  I would even consider buying another pair!!  They are worth the price.

Wantable Fitness Edit January 2016

January 2016 Wantable Fitness Edit

This is my first box ever with wantable.  I LOVE the fitness box.  It makes me want to put on my cute fitness gear and go workout.  I have been trying very hard to continue exercising everyday and this box really helped me out.  Not only can I wear these things for a workout BUT I can also wear some  of the items casually as well!!

How It works.  when you sign up you take a quiz so the stylists can figure out what you like and what you dislike.  I love that the things you dislike will not be sent at all.  You pay a $20 styling fee that is non refundable if you send everything back, however if you keep 1-5 items the $20 is taken off the amount owed.  The stylist will handpick 5 items for you to try on.  You have 5 days to decide what you want to keep and return.  If you keep 3-4 items you get a 20% discount. If you keep all 5 you get a 30% discount.

The best part about this was when I received my items, I not only loved the items but looking at the receipt some of the items were on sale and I got to buy them at the sale price!!!

What I got:

Onyx “Not Your average” Pullover

Soybu allegro Capri

trina turk recreation scallop shell draped back tank

trina turk recreation active mesh back racer back tank

cory vines lane crop legging

100_0437

While I loved the whole box.  I did return some items.  The black tank ran a little small and just didn’t fit.  The green capris were great but didn’t shape to my body in the right places and other tank was so cool with the draped back but didn’t look good on my body type.  So I kept the blue capris which are soooo soft and the pullover.  The pullover is my favorite piece and I can wear it anytime!!!!

Wantable Intimates January 2016

This is my first box of Wantable Intimates.  I love getting boxes in the mail so I was excited to give this a try.

How Wantable Works: Wantable has many services.  Makeup, accessories, intimates, fitness and style.  Choose which you want to try and then fill out the profile.  This one is great because if there is something you are not interested in trying they will not send it.  You can try things on then return any that you are not interested in.  Returns are free and you can cancel or skip any time you would like.

Intimates first collection cost $50 then after your “keep all” credit every month after that is $46.  You will receive 3-5 items.

My first box contained 3 items.  By the looks of the stream that wantable has available for customers all three of these are popular and well loved.  I loved all 3 items as well!!

I received :

Aztec knit seamless leggings.

Zig Zag waistband microfiber boyshort

Knit robe with shearling

I immediately love the underwear and leggings but was hesitant on the robe.  BUT I tried it on and OH MY WORD it is comfortable and so soft.  I could wear it around all day!!
