May Empties

This month, I've really been focusing on a mix of natural, floral scents. Plus, my hands seem to have gotten drier because I finished two lotions, a lip balm and a a face exfoliater/cleanser. I'm really excited to share these with you because these are some of my favorite things!

Popsugar Must Have May 2013

This months Pop Sugar is all about kick starting the party season. (I know I can't wait for summer to fully come on either! It's been so cold and rainy here in the East coast.)

Beauty Blender: 
I'm pretty excited for this one. I've always one but never really enough to shell out the money for it. This is one of the reasons I love PS so much. I can try things I've always to try in a much more budget friendly manner.

Tea Forte: Earl Grey Review

Tea Forte Earl Grey

 Earl Grey is the reason I became interested in teas at a young age. My dad had some fancy foreign tea box labeled, Earl Grey. (I don't recall the brand.) After sipping cups of this tea and running out, it's been a quest of mine to find an identical Earl Grey tea. I guess I'm sort of biased now that my taste of Earl Grey must be that kind of Earl Grey.

May Ipsy Bag

So this is pretty much late because I signed up late and got a late bag. That's a lot of "late's" in that sentence huh? Anyway, I have to say that I'm really excited for this months bag. I've been looking up Ipsy's recent bags and honestly I haven't really been impressed with their size of samples - hence why I've never subbed. But this bag is honestly just - wow. Much more than you could expect from a bag with a $10 price tag.

Sukicolor Luscious Lips Berry Cream Trio (Yuzen Box)

After some great customer service over at Yuzen, I finally received my Suki Lip Trio. It comes in three different lip products: two lip colors, "wineberry kiss" and "sugarberry pout" and a "lip repair butter." According to the package the advantages are "more than luscious lips . . . this all-in-one trio provdies a dewy, kissable pout..."

Popsugar Must Have Summer Fun Edition 2013

Popsugar's Must Have Box is a monthly subscription box that tailors to women. Their items are pretty much random and have a theme that you "must have" them. They provide things you may or may not know you need until you have them. Items range from personal care, beauty products, candles, specialty foods, even books. This edition is a limited edition box that is separate from their usual monthly boxes. This is the Summer Fun Edition.

May Wish List

1.) Nars Lip Pencil in Lodhi - There's something so gorgeous about the way this one swatches that I almost took it home during the Sephora F&F sale. But it had to stay. I promised myself no more lip products unless I really really really wanted them.

2.) Ilia Lip Pencil in Karma Chameleon - I've seen some swatches floating on the blogosphere about this one. It's like Shell Shock's counterpart but more opaque. I think the opacity is what Shell Shock was lacking and so this one is probably what I'm looking for. Plus I don't really have a pinkish coral opaque lip product ... yet.

Maybelline's Color Whispers Review and Swatches

Maybelline Color Whisper

Nowadays, almost every brand of makeup has their own version of the tinted lip balm. Tinted lip balms are great because they are so easy to wear, usually very comfortable to the lips, and are slightly sheer so as not to make one look unnatural. These here, are Maybelline's Color Whispers:

Green Tea by Bigelow Review

Lifestyle blogger, Tea Reivew, Bigelow, Green Tea

The other day at work, I had the fortune of finally trying out some tea by Bigelow. I'll be honest, I wasn't expecting much, so I was in for quite a surprise. I'm always on the hunt for tea that tastes similar to the ones found in restaurants. I even ask them what kind of tea brand they use. Obviously, they just tell me it's their "special home made house brand." Yeah okay. Well I found out their secret or at least something close- Bigelow's Green Tea!
