IKEA Alex Drawer Organization

By |2015-11-16T17:12:43+00:00November, 19, 2015|Beauty|2 Comments

A month and a half ago, Alex and I made our first ever IKEA trip to buy new furniture for our office/ hobby room. I've been eyeing the IKEA Alex drawers for about three years now, and pretty much every beauty guru I watch on YouTube has them. Of course, while we were there I bought myself a white 9-drawer while I was there along with the white Micke desk with side integration. When I was figuring out how to organize my desk and drawers, I looked on Google and Pinterest for inspiration. So, it only made sense to give [...]

Birchbox vs Ipsy May 2015

My Birchbox vs. Ipsy series compares both subscriptions every month and gives you a good idea of what kinds of products to expect in each. I pay for both of these subscriptions on my own, and I’m not getting paid to write these reviews every month. I know that one month’s worth of reviews isn’t enough to make an informed decision, which is why I continue to write these posts. My hope is that if you’re on the fence between the two, these posts will help you make the decision about which subscription beauty box is right for you. Here’s my breakdown [...]

Battle of the Boxes: Birchbox vs. Ipsy March 2015

My Birchbox vs. Ipsy series compares both subscriptions every month and gives you a good idea of what kinds of products to expect in each. I pay for both of these subscriptions on my own, and I'm not getting paid to write these reviews every month. I just love getting these boxes/bags in my mailbox in the middle of every month. I know that one month's worth of reviews isn't enough to make an informed decision, which is why I continue to write these posts. My hope is that if you're on the fence between the two, these posts will help you [...]

Birchbox vs. Ipsy: February 2015

By |2015-03-15T21:38:39+00:00February, 24, 2015|Beauty|0 Comments

The never ending debate: Birchbox vs Ipsy. I've been subscribed to both Birchbox and Ipsy for a little over a year now. Before signing up, I did a ton of research about the different products you get with each, which one was better, and if they were worth the money. In fact, I watched tons of unboxing videos and read bloggers' monthly "Ipsy vs. Birchbox" blogs to decide which one I wanted to get. Ultimately, I decided to get both because...well...because I couldn't decide between the two. Overall, I've been incredibly happy with my decision to get both. I feel like Birchbox [...]

July/August 2014 Beauty Favorites

By |2015-03-07T19:54:13+00:00August, 31, 2014|Beauty|0 Comments

July and August have been "slow" months in terms of trying out new makeup.  I used a lot of the same products in July and August, so I figured it was easier to combine this blog into one post rather than two.  Here are my 6 favorite beauty favorites from July & August! Urban Decay Perversion Mascara ($22 at Sephora) I got this as a sample from Urban Decay prior to the product being released, but I wasn't really all that excited about it.  Truth is, I own a few other high end mascara brands and I just don't find [...]

June 2014 Beauty Favorites

Let me start out by saying this: I'm not a makeup artist.  Or a beauty blogger.  But I do love beauty products, and I'm sure there are many of you out there who feel the same.  Lately, I've been trying out tons of new beauty products, and I figured it may be fun to add beauty favorites to my blog every month.  Some of these products were suggestions from beauty bloggers on YouTube, and others are products I heard a lot about and wanted to try.  Each month, I'll feature 5-7 products from the previous month that I loved, and [...]
