October peaches and Petals 

This is a new Lifestyle Subscription box that just started a few months ago. I liked the fact that it had make up but wasn’t totally focused on it.  Plus, it was only $15!  Woo hoo!

Here is what it looked like when I first opened the box.
  This is what was inside:

Sally Jenson Nail Polish – Not impressed with the color.  I have noticed the cheaper boxes tend to have “off” colors or colors more intended for the younger crowd.

A magnetic Postcard: I thought this was weird….  if someone sends a postcard they’re supposed to send it while traveling from the place they’re visiting.   Now that I am typing this, maybe it isn’t a postcard. I don’t know.  I suppose it is meant to go on my fridge but I really don’t even get the point of the quote on it so I threw it away.

The Elizabeth Arden Bag – I may use it for the beach or something, not sure.  I have never been a fan of the free make up bags from make up counters. I am assuming Estee Lauder had lots of free bags left over.  However, for someone who loves bags then this is great.

The wrinkle cream – I have never heard of this brand but anything for my wrinkles makes me happy

The eyeshadow – loved it !  I like that the color is neutral and it is a name brand product.

I think the box was pretty good.  I will keep it.  I like the fact that they bill you mid month but send out the new box on the first of that month.  This way, I am not checking the mail every single day until the 29th.

Yes, I need a life 🙂


Glossy Box -September  — October 2, 2015

Glossy Box -September 

I am up to about four subscription boxes now.  Of course, I just love getting packages in the mail.  The hubs got a new job though so until we figure out how it is going to go and we know its’ a go, I had to cancel my Glossybox 😦  It is my favorite one but since I rarely even wear makeup, I thought it would be the one I have to let go.  To me, Glossybox is more geared towards people my age which is probably why it is my favorite. I think that is selfish of me though since the whole point of signing of for the beauty boxes is so the girls and I can share it all.  If it was all about me, I would subscribe to a baking box or a wine box.

Okay, here is the description….

The coffee is a rub.  It says you are supposed to moisten your skin and rub it in circles in areas where you have cellulite then let it sit for ten minutes.  My concern is how am I supposed to sit and wait ten minutes being perfectly still when my cellulite is on my Ass???  I mean, I guess I could lay on my stomach on a towel and let it sit?  I probably won’t use it. I can’t sit still for ten minutes naked.  That’s just weird to me!

The Julep Lips gloss is really pretty.  I always have lip gloss on.  Well, maybe not on all the time but I do put it on everyday.  Of course they all wear off really fast .  Its’ about the only girlie thing I do everyday.

The Biossance is a wrinkle gel.  I have used it a couple of times and of course you won’t tell a difference to know if it will make obvious changes but every month there is some sort of wrinkle cream. I figure if I use what I get everyday from all my boxes,  I will get rid of all my wrinkles soon!  It did honestly feel good on my face though I do have to admit that.  It comes with a little eyedropper.  Its more of a gel than a lotion so its’ pretty runny.

I am sure I will enjoy the blush and nail polish. Well, between me and my daughters, someone will.  I have never heard of any of these brands.  Well, I have heard of Julep because they have a box and I have received their nail polish before in another subscription box.
