It’s already that time of the month again. It’s BirchBox time! So did it live up to expectations (aka disappoint), or was it actually ok? Well, this month we’re gonna have to start with the box because it’s beautiful! It has a nice, brightly patterned lid with a turquoise bottom. Very well done BirchBox, though it gives more of a June through August vibe to me, not September. We’ll let that slide…depending on the contents!

September is here and so is the unofficial start of Fall. As the seasons change, so do the makeup shades I reach for. When the weather gets colder and the days grow shorter, I find myself wanting to feel warm, comfy and cozy. The makeup shades of Fall often mimic this, meaning the brights get shoved to the side in favor of warm chocolates and deep berries. So in preparation for the dwindling daylight and the hint of winter chill in the air, it’s time for a makeup bag makeover! To see a few ways my makeup bag changes for the season, keep reading! J

Today I thought I’d do something a bit different and share with you a blue lipstick. That’s right, blue. Lipstick. It’s almost Halloween, right? True as that may be, this lipstick looks anything but blue on the lips. In fact, it creates the perfect berry wash for Fall! So, what is this intriguing little chameleon? It’s Lipstick Queen’s Hello Sailor Lipstick!

Giovanni is a fantastic cruelty-free brand that is totally affordable and rather easy to find in local stores. They just happen to make some of my favorite body scrubs - not too harsh, but scrubby enough to be effective. They are absolute perfection! The two scrubs Giovanni makes are the Hot Chocolate Sugar Scrub and the Cool Mint Lemonade Salt Scrub. A scrub is a scrub, right? Well, not exactly. Though these two are quite similar, there are subtle differences that may make one preferable to the other. So let's examine the two so you can find the one that's best for you!

::sigh:: Well, Summer is unofficially over. Though I am dreading the chilly days, the messy months of snow and sleet, the dying leaves, and the general malaise of Fall and Winter, there are some things I’m looking forward too as well. But that’s getting ahead of myself. Today we’re focusing on the last days of Summer and what I’ve been loving throughout August! It’s been kind of an uneventful month and I don’t have much in the way of makeup to share, but there are plenty of other goodies for your reading pleasure. Let’s just get into it, shall we? J

Mind Blown. Seriously. There is a brand new hand cream from UK cult phenom Soap & Glory cleverly known as the Endless Glove 2-in-1 Moisture Mask & Hand Cream. A few years ago, there was quite a bit of hype surrounding the original Hand Food hand cream (I raved myself back in my early blogging days), but these days Hand Food is looking like the ugly old stepsister. The baby soft newbie on the block is called Endless Glove and it actually does what it claims! This stuff is truly amazing and I will gladly pronounce my endless love for this wonder cream.
