I received an email that my Birchbox had shipped earlier this week, and I waited. And waited. It took a while to arrive, but I am really happy with this month's box.
Unlike last month ~ which was full of things that I probably wouldn't use ~ this month's box is full of awesome things that I love.
Here is the list from the card insert:
~ Color Club/ Nail Lacquer in Age of Aquarius: Brighten blah nails with on-trend, '60's inspired green polish.
~ Harvey Prince/ Ageless: Most scents just smell pretty, but this one is designed to make you feel more youthful - high-tech, no?
~ Lulu Organics/ Lavender and Clary Sage Hair Powder: Revive flat locks by sprinkling this lavender-scented organic dry shampoo onto your roots.
~ One Love Organics/ Skin Savior Waterless Beauty Balm: This all-natural two-in-one cleanser and mosturizer is completely free of fillers, which means it's extra concentrated and extra effective.
~ Supergoop/Sunscreen Swipe: Shield yourself from harmful UV rays anywhere you go with these portable wipes - they're soaked with an award-winning, skin-safe sunscreen formula.
~ Tea Forte/Skin-Smart Teas: AN antioxidant tea that tastes amazing and helps our skin look more radiant? Yes, please.
I use regular powder on my hair because I am a lazy ass on some days. I am happy that there is actually a dry shampoo out there that will probably do the job better than regular cornstarch. I like the powder, the nail polish (will prob just do my toes, since dishes and playing guitar is hard on fingernails...), the perfume, the sunblock. I pretty much like everything.
And speaking of liking things from BirchBox/MyGlam , I am loving a leave-in conditioner that I received in this month's Glam Bag. It is the Keratase KeraColor Color Enhancing Leave-in Treatment. The full size is almost 30.00 on special, with free shipping. It comes in all colors for different hair...
I also set up a shop on Etsy to sell some paintings.
I was working with oil, but for the sake of ease and of drying time, I am going to paint with acrylics.
I had no idea how much to charge for anything, but I made a general guess and hope it works out.
These are the two paintings I am selling....I'm painting them to order and each one will be different, but with the same, general concept.
It's a leap of faith...something I am not very good at. What is the most difficult for me is that there is a possibility of someone being critical.
But as my husband pointed out, I shouldn't NOT do something that I want to try out of fear of having my feelings hurt. It actually doesn't make much sense.
I'll let you know how things go. :)
