GLOSSYBOX/ AUGUST 2018

Summer is slowly fading and we all love those golden, sandy beaches as we soak up the sun. This month GLOSSYBOX has you covered with six products that will get you going through out the final days of summer. If you aren’t familiar with GLOSSY BOX it is a $21 monthly subscription that features skincare, makeup, nails, and hair care products. Usually their products are a mix of deluxe and full size.
This month’s theme is Beach Please, inspired by the beach. The box is full of fun illustrations; with bikini, beach balls, seashells, sunglasses, and umbrellas. It was exclusively designed by Sarah Bolton! You can re use it to store photographs, makeup, or use it as a gift box.

The box included six products from VDL, Grow Gorgeous Haircare, NCLA, SETZ, MONU EYE COOL GEL, and REN CLEAN SKINCARE. Below I will tell you more about each product, mini review, and swatch time! (Disclosure: Products provided by GLOSSYBOX, I’m keeping it 100% all opinions are mine)
VDL: Lumilayer Primer Fresh $10
We all know that if you want flawless makeup, it starts with a great foundation. By that I mean a great base, which is primer. This primer not only preps your face but it also illuminates your face and highlights your features. The formula is provides great color while remaining sheer and natural.
Grow Gorgeous Haircare: Scalp Detox: $34
This formula is full of natural ingredients and blends of minerals that exfoliate the scalp. Which if you think about it, with all the hair treatments and chemicals you end up with build up. If you want your hair to grow then it all starts at the roots and treating your scalp. Since it is an exfoliator I recommend using it if you have time to spare because it is a bit hard to take it off. The formula contains small beads and it has a strong scent. It does a great job at removing build up making your scalp feel clean. 
NCLA: Nail Lacquer in I Been Drinking $16
The name is pretty out there, fun fact it’s named in honor of Queen Bey (Beyonce) You will for sure channel your inner Sasha Fierce! The shade is a pretty watermelon pink, perfect for summer days. Especially for sandal season! Another great reason to love NCLA is that it is cruelty-free, 100% vegan, and 7-free. So go ahead and rock on your manicure gilt free. Two coats is all you need and it doesn't take long for it to dry. 
Ren Clean Skincare: Flash Hydro-boost Instant Plumbing Emulsion: $44
This hydro-boost helps retain moisture and fight signs of aging. Carthame Oil is part of the ingredients that help repair skins natural barriers over time. I’m all for keeping my skin looking young and healthy! Best of all I can double it up with my daily moisturizer for an even more hydrated feeling.
MONU EYE COOL GEL: $30
I used to have designer bags, under my eyes but now days I have mom bags. So I am always willing to try anything that reduces puffiness and dark circles. MONU EYE COOL GEL does exactly that. Their ingredients include Ginseng, Vitamin C, Arnica, and Sodium Hyaluronate which help lift, pump, and correct your tone. If you want an even more cooling sensation then refrigerate the tube.

SETZ: Blot + Translucent Powder: $3.99
Ditch the loose or compact powder when you are on the go with these recyclable one time use blotting powder. They help blot away excess oil while locking in our makeup, for a longer lasting look. These would be great during the summer days and since its translucent powder you don’t have to worry about matching your skin tone.
This month was full of summer products that will help you get through the end of summer. The total value of the box is $84.39 which is awesome considering the box is $21. I really like the fact that they’ve included products that are beneficial for your skin and some that you wouldn’t have even thought about trying. Like the Scalp Detox it is a winner in my books because long healthy hair starts at the roots. It was a well rounded box and how gorgeous was the box itself definitely a keeper for storing photos or other things. You can still get this box by subscribing to GLOSSYBOX before the end of August 30th.

Keep Me Safe Organics / Skin Care Review

Hello darlings, today I have a beauty product review from Keep Me Safe Organics!

The company carries organic, toxic free beauty and skincare products. I believe that taking care of your face is important since it is the first thing everyone sees so make it a lasting impression. I'll be reviewing their skincare line, which are the facial cleanser, facial toner, facial moisturizer, serum, and rejuvenating glacier mud mask. (Disclosure, all products provided by Keep Me Safe OrganicsAll my opinions are mine and I'm keeping it 100%.)
In order to give you my honest opinion, I tested the products for three days and made a video documenting my results after using all the products. I will post the video below. Let's talk about my skin issues before using the products; I suffered from dry flaky skin, red blotchy patches on my cheeks and of course acne. I'll be reviewing each item and tell you a bit more about them.

LBD Goodwill Challenge

Happy Thursday fashionista's! I've been a bit MIA on my blog lately, but today I'm back with an exciting post. If you have been following my blog for a while then you might remember me talking about Phoenix Fashion Week. Each year they host a challenge, which consist of illustrating your perfect little black dress. They choose the top four illustrations which then you get to bring to life. In which the designers showcase it in Phoenix Fashion Week's annual fashion show. This year they had a completely different challenge.


The little black dress challenge was presented by Goodwill of Central Arizona and Phoenix Fashion Week. You had to shop at one of 67 locations, find a project dress, up-cycle, re-purpose it into your own perfect little black dress. The dresses would then be turned in by Saturday 26, 2015. Which would then be judged by up-cycle expert Angela Johnson. They select the top four designs. Once chosen 25% of the votes would come from social media and 75% …
