Summer’s officially over! Living in Florida, I look most forward to autumn. And with a new season, that means a new look!

In the September BB here’s what I got:

  • Jouer  Matte Moisture Tint  in Linen  (SPF 15 and oil-free) - I’m excited to try this out!
  • kate spade NY  Twirl fragrance  -  a modern classic, fruity and floral

  • Vasanti  Brighten Up! Enzymatic Face Rejuvenator  -  exfoliating cleanser
  • Mighty Leaf Tea Company  natural artisan teas

Glossaholics, Say Hello to Secret Agent Beauty


I have a don’t-ask, don’t-tell policy when it comes to lip gloss: if you don’t ask me how many I own, then I won’t have to reveal that I keep approximately a dozen shades on me at any given time. They get jumbled around with the loose change, spare hair ties, and expired Metrocards sitting in the bottom of my purse. I’m a bit disorganized (to say the least), but even I can keep track of the keepsake glosses in Secret Agent Beauty’s The Skinnys Collection. This new brand has bundled five mini-tubes in a black sequin zipper bag that’s glamorous enough to whip out in a nightclub bathroom when you’re surrounded by primping strangers in stilettos.

Taylor Swift Wonderstruck

Got a sample of the new Taylor Swift Wonderstruck perfume in my April 2012 BirchBox. 

Wonderstruck is a warm blend of freesia, apple blossoms and soft vanilla undertones. So it’s a little flowery, a little fruity and has a vanilla undertone - I like all those things. 

Lizzy was pretty excited too, she likes TS a lot- and now she can smell like just her.

BirchBox April 2012

I’m always impressed with my monthly BB and this month my husband was the one to bring in the mail so he was around for the unboxing. I think he was feeling a little left out and commented on how many samples were inside… what he doesn’t know is that this month I signed up for Birch Box Men so next month he will have his own box to open up!!

I wanted to get a quick post to show what was in my April 2012 Birch Box.

Pangea Organics  Lip Balm  -  Egyptian Fennel w/ Grapefruit & Sweet Orange  this is a  gluten free lip balm

Birch Box MAN

Guess who just signed up for Birch Box MAN - that would be me! Oh the boy is going to be so excited that a box will be coming to the house just for him!! LOL In all seriousness, he’s not the kind of guy that gets excited about skin care products, but he HAS recently decided to wash his face with something other than bar soap. He’s a neutrogena boy… he likes the deep clean gentle scrub. So it’s a step in the right direction!

So if you have a boy/man in your life (or know a man that likes to try great personal care products) check out BirchBox MAN for $20 a month - free shipping.

Just follow my referral link to get more info and get started, and If you’re a girl that likes skin care and beauty products, Birch Box for Women is just $10 a month with free shipping.

BirchBox December 2011

Have I mentioned that I love getting these box subscriptions? It’s like Christmas all year round!

The best thing is opening up a box and seeing things that you’re beyond excited to try. Maybe because you’ve heard of a product; maybe you’ve read a review and are wanting to try it out (but don’t want to commit to buying a full sized prduct) and maybe there’s something that you would have never thought to try, and then you do… and you LOVE it.

I know that was a really long sentence, but you know what I’m talking about!

If you aren’t a subscriber to BB - follow my referral link   What are you waiting for? It’s only $10 a month, shipping is free and look what you’re in for!! ;) 

Benefit Cosmetics  The POREfessional  -  This make up primer product diminishes the appearance of pores and goes on velvety smooth. I use this product on my cheeks where I have a few large to medium pores, it really does a great job diminishing them, I put it on before my tinted moisturizer and follow with powder.

Harvey Prince  Ageless Perfume  -  This is a pretty light fruity scent, with energizing grapefruit. I love light fruity scents. 

Jouer  Moisturizing Lip Gloss in BirchBox Pink  -  OK, when I saw this hot pink gloss I was really afraid I was going to look like a circus clown. BUT… I’m adventurous and always like to try new looks. This is such a pretty gloss that is buildable. I like to wear it sheer (one coat) and it really perks me up. I never thought I’d be wearing hot pink gloss, but thanks to BirchBox, I am now! 

Orofluido  Beauty Elixir  -  This is literally liquid gold for your hair. I love the non-greasy feeling of this elixir and I love how my hair shines when using Orofluido. A little goes a long way!

This month BB was generous and there were 2 extras in my box!

PREP ShowStoppers  Designer Fashion Tape  -  just in time for that holiday party, the double sided tape keeps clothes perfectly in place. (no wardrobe malfunctions)

RECHARGE EBOOST  -  Orange Natural Energy Drink  -  (not pictured)  I drank half of this and had energy all day long. It got me through Lizzy’s dance rehearsal and some holiday shopping!

BirchBox November 2011

I’m so excited to share what I received in my November BirchBox.

This box felt like I was being visited by some old friends, I was re-introduced to some great product lines I used to use, so I found it be-fitting for the Thanksgiving November theme. 

Borghese  Fango Ristorative Hydrating Mud  -  Tuscany in a tube! This Italian mud mask treatment hydrates dry dehydrated skin. Leaves my skin feeling soft and smooth.

Guerlain  Shalimar Parfum Initial  -  (not pictured)  This is a new version of the classic Shalimar. A younger more flirty version, very feminine light airy floral perfume.

Thymes  Eucalyptus Body Lotion  -  Before you think you’ll attract koala bears when wearing this, let me tell you that this is the prettiest thing a koala would ever have the pleasure of smelling. It’s a light and clean scent, not overpowering like full on euclayptus and all the Thymes lotions are amazing. I LOVE the packaging of this sample. It’s in my purse and almost all gone! 

Thymes  Kimono Rose Body Lotion  -  Light rose scented lotion (extra, foil packet sample) 

Zoya  Nail Polish in Sooki  -  A beautiful glossy red cream mini polish, perfect for the upcoming holiday! 

Two Paper Dolls  Ampersand Coasters  -  (not pictured)  Coasters are always a nice extra, what els am I going to put my drinks on? ;)
