Tuesday is a totally lame mail day! Last week I got nothing, and yesterday, just one box. THANK GOODNESS! It gives me a little bit of time to catch up after the Monday avalanche! Monday mail is totally extreme!

Do not forget to enter my giveaways! Here’s what we have going on and are active right now! Now that I’ve reminded you, I think I’ll launch another one tomorrow! Follow on bloglovin or rss or just subscribe to my email newsletter to make sure you don’t miss anything.

  • Sweet Pea Box – Awesome box of kids clothes! I totally need to pick up another one for my kids soon!
  • Try The World Paris Box – Lovely lovely goodies and TTW  sent me a tube of Crème Marrons after it came in because they heard my husband loved it so much. That was so so awesome and thoughtful of them, n’est pas? I’m going to bring it to our Orlando/Disney meetup and I can already see him waltzing around Epcot squeezing it in his face. No no my husband would never do that (he totally would). Remember that the winner gets the big Paris box and if someone referred her then she wins the mini box! Cool!
  • Sparaj – This totally awesome spa box is up for a giveaway and everyone is totally wild over it! Especially the hot herbal stress relieving ball!  (Which is amahzing).
  • iBbeautiful Teen/Tween box – Love this one and totally picked up another for next month for my cutie! It may not always be perfect for younger girls like mine, but I bet it is anyways.

I’m SO READY for this experiment to be over with. I’m still not allowed to throw it away. Fortunately some ACV in a jar is keeping the flies at bay. It’s gross. Fortunately I was finally allowed to toss the dead bug in a jar (we’re very into scientific observation lately). I decline to post pictures of the awesomely large & disgusting bug. ANYTHING FOR SCIENCE PEOPLE! We’re studying “decay.” She’s obsessed.


Subscription Box Life!

I pitched the kids in the tub last night with From The Lab hair mask in. Their hair turned out great. Why is mine so bad? My daughter’s is almost as fine but not quite as because hers turned out pretty good. I have the thinnest & finest hair. My son’s hair really looks great with the mask and it eliminates one rinsing. He has an issue with rinsing.

I took a selfie on the subway. Your Bijoux Box necklace! Popsugar Revlon lip crayon (ages ago, go find Popsugary goodness here!)! Le Metier eyeshadow! Glossybox pressed powder!  Large vacant stare courtesy of moi! (not a big selfie taker) Sea Spray is Philip B from Blush. And I keep finding boxes that I love and I’m totally unable to drop any of them. How is that? Oh I did drop a few, see Monday’s post.


Post Kiwi Crate I made the kids a cheese omelette. My daughter asked me for one the other day, I don’t know where from, but it was a hit. I’ll do it again soon! The himalayan sea salt (thanks Costco!) really made it perfect. Oh and the land o’ lakes olive oil & sea salt butter. That really set it off. This has nothing to do with subscription boxes except I made it after we did one.IMG_9670

julep october spoilerThe Kajal Eye Glider & Sharpener will be in Julep Maven October boxes. It features one end of the pencil in “carbon black” and the other end in brown shimmer and comes with a sharpener! The pencil is said to be richly pigmented and super blendable. The retail on this one is $22 ($17.60 for Mavens). I’m such a fan of last month’s entire collection and I can’t wait to see what other fall treats Julep has in store for October!

And also, if you didn’t get it last month, my must have pick of polishes from the September collection is Candace. It’s an amazing polish!  And one last thing I noticed – There’s a whole
