A Weekend to Remember + April's Glambag Review

Monday, April 15, 2013

Hello beautiful friends! How are you this Monday? Spring is here and depending on your corner of the world, you may even be wearing shorts (jealous)! Michigan is 'getting there'... Today is in the 60's and it's feeling marvelous. Windows open, watching the birds at my feeder, and blogging- I'm in a great mood. Period. This weekend was 'beyond' awesome as Ben swept me away for a little birthday weekend extravaganza (think Lebanese food, shopping, and more shopping)! More of that to come, but first, let's chat about our April Ipsy Glambag
Let me begin by saying this- I am 'very' rarely displeased with anything I receive in my Glambag. I absolutely love the selection of products Ipsy chooses to send each month. Not to mention, SEVERAL items are usually *full-size*. Yes, you heard me right. This month I received '3' full-size items :-O  [That's my wow face]. I've been in need of a new summer blush so the timing was impeccable on this Be a Bombshell compact in 'Sweet Cheeks'. The shadows are also darling and I just love the feminine tone it adds to any eye look. Below I'm wearing the Sation nail lacquer in 'Love at First Byte'. 
So dainty, so pretty- I'm fancying this color! The only item I have yet to sample is the Healthy Sexy Hair soy renewal oil. If it works anything like other oils I've tried, I'm sure I'll like it. 

Glambag Contents:
Sation Nail Laquer in 'Love at First Byte'
Two Cosmetics- Eyeshadow Duo 
Be a Bombshell Blush in 'Sweet Cheeks' 
Healthy Sexy Hair- Soy Renewal Oil   

Like I was saying earlier, Ben swept me away this weekend to celebrate my birthday. I love it when he does that because I adore surprises! Before we left he told me that my birthday gift was waiting for me at our final destination. Hmmm?? Well, it was and woweeee was I ever surprised! I got to pick out my very first necklace from Tiffany & Co.! It was a surreal experience. I felt like Audrey Hepburn in Breakfast at Tiffany's. Our sales rep was 'so' nice and made the experience wonderful for me. I think I was drooling just watching him wrap the box & tie the bow.
Eeeee!!! Too exciting. Let's give it up for Ben... *applause* 

In other shopping news- I cleaned house at Madewell this weekend (with a coupon I had) and I can't wait to release some fun outfit blogs soon.  :) 
 It's Monday and you know what that means- LINK UP time!! Today I'm joining the party with Lipgloss & Crayons and Still Being Molly. Come join the fun. I've met so many fun gals this way! 
Love you all...


  1. Love the nail polish color! :)


  2. Thanks for posting the nail polish color from Ipsy! I received the April Glambag too this weekend (I got Big Sexy Hair powder instead of oil, a loose, pink eye shadow, Be a Bombshell Blush in "Sweet Cheeks" and "Love at First Byte.") I thought the nail color looked a little light in the bottle, but seeing it on I really like it! It's very dainty and feminine. I will definitely try. Do you get any other monthly beauty subscriptions?

    Love the blog! Linking up from #YOLOMonday.

    1. Hey girl! Thanks for stopping by and following along! :)

      No, I don't currently get any other beauty subscriptions. I used to get Birchbox but for the money you CANNOT beat Ipsy! They give great items, I'm sure you agree! I love #YOLOMonday! Great to meet you.

  3. I loved this months glam bag, and that hair oil is amazing! I found you through #yolo I too am hosting a blog hop right now, I'd love for you to stop by and link up :)

    xoxo Tori

    1. Hi Tori!

      I am 'totally' coming over to link up today! I joined last week for the first time and had a blast. It's so much fun meeting new friends this way. :)

  4. We need a picture of your purchase at Tiffany's! You are one spoiled young lady! Ben is amazing, but you deserve it! Love you both!

  5. Ahh I LOVE Madewell...can't wait to see some outfits :) I have that geo linen tee...their linen tees are my fave! Love the color of your nails too!
