Last week I received my Birchbox for the month of May. This month’s theme box is about beauty essentials, products that Birchbox staff needs to get through everyday. I was excited to see I would be lipgloss and hair oil in this months box because I’ve been looking for those. I must the lipgloss is pretty amazing and I can’t wait to try another color. I’m still on the search for the perfect hair oil this one was a little bit too heavy for my hair. Look below to see what else I got in my box:
Cargo Lip Gloss
Pilot Corporation of America Acroball PureWhite®
amika Obliphica Hair Treatment
COOLA Classic SPF 30 Cucumber Moisturizer for Face
Isaac Mizrahi FABULOUS Eau de Parfum & Rollerball
What did you get in your Birchbox this month? What are your beauty essentials?

Last week I attend a shopping party hosted by Rent the Runway in Atlanta for a few select bloggers. I was invited as a member of the Southern Bloggers Society to meet their PR person along with local celebrity stylist, Robanne Schulman. It was fun meeting several new blogger friends and running into a few old ones. After a few glasses of champagne, cupcakes, and admiring pretty dresses, I would say we had a blast. Check photos from the event below!

Today I am back for another installment of my Around the Coffee Table series. During the last post we discussed the millennial worker. Today we are discussing friendships post college. Earlier this week I was talking to my best friend that lives in Texas about making friends in the real world.
She moved to Dallas about two years ago and has struggled at finding true genuine friends in the metropolis city. A lot of the friendships she has made have been through work. Which is where I think a lot people find friendships post college. With constant after work happy hours you are bound to find friendships with co-workers.
But what happens when you leave that workplace or things fall apart with that friend. Then you are left thinking where are all of my friends. Well that’s what has happen to her. I think it has happened to a lot of us twenty-somethings. It has happen to me and that’s why I like to keep work and pleasure separate.
My advice to her was to get involved with community and young professional groups in her area that may have a lot of young people as members. That’s what I did. I’ve found a core group of girlfriends through my church small group and other groups I have been involved in.
If you are a young professional, how have you kept, maintained, and found new friendships post college?
Swim suit season is just around the corner and most of us are preparing to have the perfect bikini body for summer. Smoothies aren’t always the most nutritious choice for meals because they can be loaded with sugar. I like to have a smoothie in the morning after my workouts as breakfast number and then an hour later I’ll have another small breakfast . Today I’m sharing my favorite smoothie recipe for a getting fit for the summer.
Slim Down Smoothie
1/2 cup frozen or fresh raspberries
1 fresh ripe banana
1/2 cup fresh strawberries
1 cup vanilla soymilk or regular milk
1 Tbsp honey
1/2 cup of fresh spinach
1/2 cup Greek yogurt
1 Tbsp green tea matcha powder
How to prepare:
Place all ingredients in the blender and blend until smooth.
