September Birchbox

Hi Guys! Today I wanted to share my September Birchbox with you all! If you are not familiar with Birchbox it is a monthly beauty box that sends you 4-6 samples each month, sometimes even full size items! The best part about the box is that it is only $10 a month! If you are interested, click here.
Fresh Paint
The box always contains a postcard that explains that month's theme and a breakdown of every item, its description, and its cost.
This is an extra note card explaining Birchbox is four years old and gives details on a promotion of the month.
Now to the goodies.
Also, there is always a colorful pouch that contains a few of your samples included in your box.

My Thoughts
I am extremely happy with this box! I love the Macadamia Healing Oil Spray and have a few back ups in my beauty closet right now! I'm excited to try the nail polish, however, I am much more of a bright nail polish person so the nude polish will be perfect to try. Another awesome reason to try Birchbox is because they send you such a mix array of samples that you more than likely would never purchase yourself or even send you products that are your holy grail! Win-win if you ask me.

Hope you all are having a terrific day and until next time...

Bid Ado To Summer

I just wanted to wish you guys a Happy Labor Day! Today has been extremely low key and will continue that way into an early slumber, I hope. I enjoy nothing more than a relaxing weekend. I must prepare for the chaos that is right around the corner...Tuesday...oh the dread...back to the grind. On a more positive note it's New York Fashion Week, insert squeal here. I will be immersing myself in a fashion oblivion for the next two weeks. Until next time.

Fashion Exhibition

Hi Guys! I just wanted to share with you an exhibition I attended at the Mint Museum yesterday. This is an incredible fashion exhibition, literally breath taking in person. Sorry for the poor quality photographs, I did not have my DSLR with me due to  this being a total spur of the moment adventure. The photos were snapped with my iPhone 5s and I hope you guys do not mind. There are styles from the 1700's to Haute Couture including Dior, Balmain, and YSL, which of course now is Saint Laurent. Both exhibits are superb. Every piece had an informational plaque that informs you  about the pieces and their designers. Here are just a few of my favorites from the collections. To find out more information about the exhibits and the museum, click here.
