September Birchbox - Birthday Month!

Hello loves! My Birchbox came late this month, but I figured I'd post about it anyways! This month's box was focused on the Fall season. Fall happens to be my favorite season! I also had my birthday earlier this month, which was a week of awesomeness!! Anyhoo, let's dive right into the box :D

This was a "lifestyle extra" from Birchbox. These are teas by the Mighty Leaf Tea Company. Yummy flavors in Vanilla Bean, Green Tea Tropical, and Chamomile Citrus! The Vanilla Bean was not really what I expected. I didn't taste the vanilla flavor that much.
This is the Focus Aromatherapy Blend by 21 drops. The roller ball application lets you apply this to your wrists or your neck. You sniff this to help relieve stress and relax you on the go :) I would only recommend standing this upright because it tends to leak.
This is the Pro-Mend Split End Treatment System by Nexxus. It came with shampoo, conditioner, and a leave in treatment that each helps repair your split ends. The formulas were decent, but it wasn't anything that wowed me. I've used better products.
Next up is the Brighten Up! Enzymatic Face Rejuvenator by Vasanti. It's a cleansing exfoliator that uses microderm crystals and papaya to brighten up your skin. Now, I thought that this exfoliator would be gentle. It was actually very rough on my skin, and I would not recommend it for those who have sensitive skin. Even as I gently and barely massaged it into my skin, it was quite painful. This cleanser is definitely not for me.
This is a Birchbox Custom Lace Hair tie by twist band, in my favorite color! These are very comfortable!
Lastly, this is a Birchbox Custom Polish by Color Club. This is in the shade Status Update. I love this charcoal color! It's so perfect for Fall and for Winter. I have used Color Club in the past, and I wasn't too impressed with their formula. Hopefully this polish will be better!

Those are all my goodies! I'm most excited about the teas and the nail polish. I am not a big coffee drinker (with the exception of Lee's Sandwich iced coffee ^_^), but I really enjoy drinking tea! And of course I'm a nail junkie! Overall, I'm verrrry pleased with this box :) I look forward to the next one!

Chic In Shorts

Hey loves!! It's been a while since my last "outfit of the day" video, so I figured it was time for a new one! Today was very productive and I even went on a movie date in this outfit. I wanted to look chic, yet semi-casual. I just went into my closet and played around with pieces and had fun! I hope this outfit inspires you to have fun with your fashion and just experiment! You never know what you might like by accident :) Here's my latest video, if you haven't seen it!

Thank you so much for the support!!! 'Til next time, MUAH<33
