Of all  my subscription boxes, this is the one that I have been trying to decide if I should cancel. For about six months it seemed like the samples just kept getting smaller and less useful. Over the last two months it is seeming to improve so I am going to keep buying it for a few more months...

Here was this months Birchbox...

And the product listing shows pricing and description of the included goodies...

Got this sample of a 3 minute face peel...See how little :-(

Can't wait to try this. This is a little larger sample and  I should be able to do both legs with this at least once!

 This eye cream could end up being a favorite...I need this thats for sure!

And this eyeshadow palette is awesome! I love the colors so I hope the product is good~~~

Finally I got these to try. They are shower gel and these should work great in my luggage carry on for when I travel.
Again, I am still not sure if it is worth the money ($10/month) for this sub box but I will give it another month or two!

I LOVE presents in the mail that much!! HA!

This list is included to explain the products in your box and also pricing - if you like it you know how much it is to purchase...

I received this awesome sample and loved it!!! It is a very gentle and awesome smelling scrub!!!

I cant wait to try this! I love mint so I think I am going to love this - I have so many right now that I may save this for winter!!!

Lord knows my color treated hair can use all the help it can get. I will try this the next weekend I am home and looking for something to do - HA!

I am really excited to try this mascara! It is Revlon Bold so I am hoping it lives up to its name!

And finally, I am way excited to try this!!! I am probably to only adult that does not own a lip pencil. I just have no idea how to use this! I am going to watch some youtube videos and try it out though!! I am really excited since I like the color too!!

Giveaway Winner and Getting on Track



The winner of last weeks giveaway is Natalie!!

I emailed Natalie and just need her to respond with her mailing address and I will send her a Jamberry pedicure set.

Onto more pressing matters.

I have been such a slacker on my portion control and eating! I am still working out like crazy but my eating is out of control.

I have had my twenty something niece living with me and she has the abaility to junk all the time without gaiing weight. I do not! HA  When I come home from the gym and see her eating pita chips and ice cream, etc. I think I can hav some too.

Well, I jumped on the scale this am and realized that I am up 5 pounds.

So, for the 100th time - I am getting serious! I just want to finish losing the last of the weight I need to lose and be done with it. I only need about 30 more pounds gone which is nothing compared to where I started.

I AM BACK ON TRACK!!!! Get this done and then maintain for years to come.

This will also help with my psoriatic arthritis. I have started having pain in my joints and losing the rest of this weight can only help ease that pain.

Wish me luck - I am focused.

Any one else ever lose focus of your goals? How do you stay on track? Any advise is welcome

Hope yinz all have a great day!

Truly Random Post

Happy Wednesday everyone~~~

Work and life are so crazy busy that I have not had time to post anything! I feel terrible about that and I am going to commit to getting back on track with posts! PROMISE!

This is a truly random post that will catch you up...this weekend at my parents home there will be a pontoon parade. If you live there, you can enter your boat in the parade. You have to select a theme and then decorate the boat and people to reflect that theme! I am soooo excited! We are going with Luau!! We are called the Waikiki Wolfe's and picked below is just a small fraction of the decor we got for this shindig!!! We will decorate the boat with all this Luau stuff and lights and when it is dark the parade starts and jusdging is done at the end! I cannot wait to post pics and the decision that we won (of course we will win - ha) NOT!

 This is my new favorite meal! I eat this all summer long! Fresh basil from my garden and cut up tomatos and little balls of fresh mozzerrella!! YUMMO!!!! Some salt and no oil! So healthy!

 This is my newest nail design!! I used jamberry nail wraps on two and then polish on the other three! I absolutely love these things - they are so easy and no worries for dry time, etc.
