February Birchbox

This weekend I received my February Birchbox in the mail. I was excited to see what was in this month’s box because I’ve heard that February is the best month.

This month’s box include great beauty samples from the several new brands. Check out what I got this month below and what I think of each product so far.

Colorescience pro ® | Glow and Travel Puff – I haven’t tried this because it’s a self tanner and I’m already pretty tan.

Jouer | Luminizing Moisture Tint- This product is great! I wore it this weekend and it wasn’t too thick and didn’t wash me out.

Orofluido ™ | Hair Oil

WEI ™ | Chinese Rose Foaming Cleanser- I am always looking for a good cleanser and this one worked great. My skin felt great after using it.

Chuao Chocolatier | Spicy Maya ChocoPod

What I loved about Rue Magazine: Issue 3

The latest issue of Rue Magazine launched yesterday and I must say I’m in love. Each page I turned I found something new that I loved. This issue definitely didn’t disappoint. I had the wonderful opportunity of hearing these women speak last month at Lavish! and they were great! As a freelance writer, I love reading new magazines to find inspiration for my own work. So I thought I would share a few of my favorite things about the new issue of Rue Magazine.

1. I loved the Miu Miu bag on this page! I love the powder blue color and would love to wear it with a pair of blue jeans. It will definitely be added to my wish list.

2. I love this mustard yellow jacket it just makes the photograph pop of the page. Mustard yellow is one of my favorite colors to wear.

3. Nicole Cohen, from the blog Sketch 42 ‘s New York City apartment was featured in the latest issue of the magazine. I loved every room featured in her house,especially the living room.

4. Aren’t these the cutest champagne bottles. They were featured in the Faire Frou Frou lingerie shoot. These are available to download and would be perfect for a bachelorette party.
