Birchbox: September 2012

This was such a great box!
I have been wanting to try the Dr. Jart BB cream and I was super excited to see it in this month's box. I really liked it, but it seemed really light for my skin tone- or maybe I just used way too much? Still unsure about that. Another thing that I didn't love about it was the sunscreen smell. But overall a great product- it provided great coverage and evened out my skin.
I was also pretty excited about the Bvlgari sample. Smelled great- but very strong.
Maybe this weekend I will try the Color Club polish- love the color!

Ysl #14 exceptional brown

This is the first time I have used a ysl nail polish.  I was very impressed with the formula and overall quality. This stuff glides on like butter! I really, really loved it. The color is a gorgeous chocolate-y brown and so perfect for fall. I will definitely be buying more from the brand.

August Glossybox

This is a little late- oops! But I really wanted to do a review because it was such a great box.
Here is what was in my box:
1. Biolage exquisite oil replenishing treatment. This is a great product, but I got this for free at Ulta a couple of weeks ago. My only complaint about these kind of boxes is that they often include items like this {and perfume samples) that you can get for free at any makeup counter.
2. Ellis Faas milky lips. This was a pleasant surprise! A full sized product - worth 35 bucks! I really love the texture and feel of this. It is sooo creamy. The only thing about it-- I got the most horrible shade of brown. It's like a beige toffee. But I liked the feel of it so much that I might order it in another shade.
3. Illamasqua nail varnish. Another pleasant surprise! Full sized product worth 14 bucks! I see this brand everywhere but I have never purchased anything from them. I am really excited to try this! It's also a great color for fall. YAY.
4. Ole Henriksen truth serum. LOVED this. Smells great and made my skin feel really smooth and evened out.
5. Touch in Sol feel like honey moon skin base. I have been using this in place of moisturizer and primer. So far, so good!

Overall, I really enjoyed what was in this box. I am always happy to try new brands!

Vacation pics: part 2

These are the rest of the pictures from my trip. I honestly feel a little sad looking at them! I am really missing up north. It was such a great time, but I always feel like we weren't there long enough.

 My brother is a flight instructor so he flew his plane up to the Harbor Springs Airport so we could go up and see the bay. It was my first time flying in a small plane- fun and a little scary! But so beautiful to see the lake and the surrounding areas.

My favorite: mint chocolate chip! {with opi my very first knockwurst}


Our awesome little car + sunset 

I LOVE these old tiled ceilings in all of the stores in Petoskey!
Ready for take off!
