Democracy Absolution: The jeans you need to buy

Democracy Absolution: The jeans you need to buy

You need a new pair of jeans, don’t you?  Do yourself a favor and get a pair of Democracy Absolution jeans.  My SIL told me about them last summer, and since I was still losing baby weight, I just bought a pair of the capris […]

Sunday Social: Beauty

I’m linking up for Sunday Social with Ashley and Neely.  This week’s questions are about beauty.  It’s funny because I’m kind of a product junky, but I’m too lazy to wear much makeup regularly, nor do I style my hair.  The makeup thing mostly stems […]

June 2013 Birchbox

Birchbox is a monthly subscription service for upscale beauty products.  For $10, you get a box with 4-5 generous samples including makeup, skincare, fragrance, body, and hair care. There’s no commitment to subscribe to more than one month, so it’s really low risk.  You can review […]

May 2013 Birchbox Review

I’m weeks behind on my May Birchbox review because I was trying to catch up with all of the Baby Watch posts (which I’m behind on again…). Birchbox is a monthly subscription service for upscale beauty products.  For $10, you get a box with 4-5 generous […]

2013 March Birchbox

The March Birchbox didn’t have a lot of useful products for me and I don’t think I’ll be ordering any of the full-size products.  I’m kind of hate getting shampoo/conditioner samples because I already have a ton from all over the place.  Same with face […]

February Julep Box Review

I loved the February Julep box because it came with a new product, Freedom Polymer Top Coat.  It’s supposed to stay on your nails like gel polish, but remove like regular polish.  I’m really excited to try it out, but I’ve been too lazy to […]

February Birchbox 2013

The February Birchbox was decent, but there isn’t anything that would change my life or that I’d feel the need to purchase the full sized item. Birchbox is a monthly subscription service for upscale beauty products.  For $10, you get a box with 4-5 generous samples […]

OPI Designer…De Better

I decided I wanted something sparkly on my nails this week.  Really, I just reached into my nail polish box and pulled out a couple of colors to choose between. OPI Designer…De Better, from the 2011 Holiday Muppet Collection was the winner.  It’s definitely my […]

January Birchbox 2013

The January Birchbox made up for me not loving December’s not-as-awesome box.  I’m pretty pleased with all items and will get good use out of them.  It’s always fun to get something in the mail and this month didn’t disappoint.  This is my 12th month […]

Retainers at age 33

I just got a set of retainers.  Yeah, like a teenager.  I wore braces for years and slept in a retainer for about 5 years after that.  At some point I cracked the top retainer down the middle of the plastic, but I super-glued it […]
