October 2015 Allure Beauty Box - Unboxing & Review

Hello! Hope you're having a great day! For this post, I want to share with you guys an unboxing and review of my October 2015 Allure Beauty Box.
Look at all those goodies! Again, I do not have a video to embed for this unboxing and, honestly, I'm not sure when I will start making them again. It's not that I don't like making videos, but there are still a lot of changes going on in my life and it's become stressful to find the time where I can make them. Heck, it's been hard to find the time to even blog about things (...evident by the fact that it's November 17th and I am writing about an October box). But you didn't come here to read my excuses; you came here to see the October 2015 Allure Beauty Box so let's get to it!

October 2015 Birchbox - Positive Force - Unboxing & Review

Hello! Hope you're having a great day! For this post, I want to share with you my October 2015 Birchbox.
Pretty! And also off-center. Hmm. You also might notice that I don't have a Youtube video about this box to embed in this post; I don't know why, but it's been kind of hard for me to film lately. Bad timing, bad lighting, not feeling well, not having time...there always seems to be something that gets in the way. Which I think means that I just don't really want to film right now, even though I might not want to admit it to myself. I've been going through some life changes again and it's been hard to find motivation to do much of anything really. So I apologize for my lack of posting and filming and I hope that you still find these interesting and informative, if somewhat late.
With the month of October, companies seem to go one of two ways: Halloween or breast cancer awareness. Birchbox went with the latter and (unfortunately) partnered with Estee Lauder (it's kind of a long story and a soapbox topic of mine, but basically Estee Lauder wanted to purchase the idea of using a pink ribbon to support breast cancer awareness and use it as a marketing thing from the lady that came up with it and she refused to sell. Instead of dropping the idea, Estee Lauder changed the color of the ribbon slightly and now uses it to push their products in the month of October. It is important to be aware of breast cancer and to be able to talk about it freely, but it's not okay to use it to sell products) and released two specially curated boxes of Estee Lauder products. I went with my normal, surprise box and just picked my sample choice.

Small Birchbox Haul - OPI Floss Gloss, Marcelle, & Periperi - Reviews!

Hello! I hope you're having a great day! For this post I want to share with you guys a pretty small Birchbox haul.

Since it is such a small haul, I also wanted to take time to do a little more in-depth review of each item. Mostly, though, I wanted to share this haul since, with my Birchbox points and using a coupon for 20% off a $35+ purchase, I got all these items shipped for less than $5. Which is awesome.
