Have I told you yet about Dottiebox?

Okay ladies, so I have been planning on doing a Dottiebox review but honestly have not had any time in this world to do so. I know it’s a little late but, here’s my June Dottiebox Review.

Dottibox is is a monthly subscription service devoted to handmade gifts and independent artists.

It is roughly $26 (including shipping) a month for the Full Size Dottiebox, which is VERY worth it. If you’re like me and into all things Etsy, crafting, artisan, handmade, then this is the go-to box for you.

Carly, whom I have had the pleasure of talking to, is such a sweet person. She really takes the time to curate these boxes and find items that are truly awesome =] And she is very fast at shipping =]

First up is Elastic Hair Bandz. I have to say that these hair bandz are super cute and awesome=] I still am pretty partial to my brand Naturally Kamdyn though =] =] But I love their product as well, she has some very cute and fun designs.

Next we have Sunny Island Blu’s Sea Salt Spray in Island Coconut, let me just tell you how addicting this spray is!!! So addicting, that my boyfriend has used it more than I have!! The smell is amazing and it makes my hair have the perfect beachy waves!

The nail polish I received is from Starrily. I have not tried it yet because I just tend to hoard nailpolish and then one day go on a polish spree and start painting my nails and my daughter’s nails. It will be used on a rainy day or when my daughter begs me to paint her nails. I love the fun and glittery color of this polish though and I’m sure it’ll look super cute on!

Last but not least we have Nazari Jewelry. I got this fun quartz ring and as soon as I opened the box, I didn’t even have a second trying it on for size when my 3 year old grabbed it off of my finger and said “Mommy! It’s my Elsa powers!!!” and she then proceeded to run off and get her blue sequin Elsa cape that I made her and tried to freeze my heart! That being said I have yet to get to wear this because my little one refuses to give me any “power”. The ring is absolutely gorgeous and is great for Elsa ice powers apparently!

I hope all of you go and check out Dottiebox! It is a great subscription and each month is different. The July Review will be coming soon! and I cannot wait for the AUGUST MINI BOX (and full size) =] =]

 

JULY BOXYCHARM SNEAK PEEKS

So I have really been slacking lately! Today is my day to get caught up on my blogging and sneak peeks so you ladies are in for a treat.
First up is Boxycharm, which for me is one of my most favorite boxes. I feel like the quality and price is there! You get some pretty awesome products for only a portion of the price.

I am absolutely OBSESSED with this lipstick! Can you say gorgeous?? The lipstick that’s being featured in this month’s July Boxycharm is Appeal Cosmetics Luxurious Lipstick, a $22 Value. I am sure there will be more than just the color that’s shown here, but I am definitely hoping to get this bright pink color to add to my collection.

Next up which I already discussed in my previous post is the Purlisse SPF Moisturizer, a $55 Value. I am already getting this in my Fab Fit Fun VIP Box this month, but will gladly take a second!

Last but not least is Lauren B Beauty Nail Polish, an $18 Value. I have never tried her nail polish yet, but am very excited to give it a go. I like this bright red pop of color, but again, I am sure there will be other variations than the one that is shown. If not, I’d be fine getting a red polish, but probably won’t use it right away.

Overall this box is looking pretty awesome and that’s not even the complete box! Can’t wait to see what else is in store for Boxycharm!

 

 

 

JULY BOXYCHARM SNEAK PEEK #1

Hello Ladies! Is it that time already?? It seems like June has been dragging on for me but this July sneak peek makes it seem a little better!

I received the first boxycharm sneak peek in an email last night and was very excited about it.

Pur~Lisse Pur-Protect SPF 30 Moisturizer (a $55 Value)!

I am super excited about this because I got a sample of their moisturizer in my Birchbox at one point in time and fell in love. It’s a light moisturizer and makes my skin feel so so soft. I have very dry skin and break out easily with too much moisturizer but this one is perfect. I also know that this will be in the Fab Fit Fun Summer VIP Box so I am definitely excited to get two. I know I will use it up pretty fast.

On another note, let me just say how DISAPPOINTED I am with Glossybox. I got an email stating that they ran out of boxes and would not be sending me one. =[ I am so bummed. I was really looking forward to the awesome stars and stripes box, the nail polish, the hair texturizing spray, and whatever else they were going to put in. =[ I may just have to email them…..  Did anyone else get this email?

I hope everyone has a wonderful day =] and don’t forget to go check out naturallykamdyn.etsy.com and send some love my way!

GLOSSYBOX JUNE 2014 STARS & STRIPES SNEAK PEEK #2

I just found a second sneak peek! Woooo hooooo!

Image

RUSK Texture Dry Finishing Spray Value of $18 http://www.ulta.com/ulta/browse/productDetail.jsp?productId=xlsImpprod10111238

“Great style starts with a great cut. But it needs a texturing hairspray to show off its killer shape. Like an instant volumizer, it injects fullness and natural movement with a few quick bursts. Spray, sway and stun. That’s how Rusk Texture rolls.”

I don’t have anything like this yet so it’ll be added to my collection!

Cheek Stains

Hello ladies!

I recently received my PopSugar Must Have Summer Limited Edition Box. In it was the Tarte Cheek Stain in Exposed.

Image

I thought the color was very pretty on my complexion (I am very light skinned) but I noticed that it was quite sticky on my skin. Is this normal? I have never used a cheek stain before so I’m not a pro at it by any means. I know I am getting the “Blushing Bride” cheek stain in my Boxycharm box here soon and I just want to know how to get these stains to be less sticky if I am going to use them. If not I will just sell them or maybe a giveaway of some sort for those girls who know how to make it work! Any words of advice would be greatly appreciated =] =] I love the color I got, but I don’t want my face to stick to someone or rub off on another person when I go in for a hug! I hate getting makeup everywhere!

POSHMARK? UHM YES PLEASE!

So lately another one of my addictions has been Poshmark. I seriously love it. I have sold a few things on there but I mostly trade =]

I think that makes it more fun =] and now with the reduced shipping ($4.99) it’s much more doable to trade!

Any of you lovely ladies on Poshmark? If so find me and follow me, my username is mkpicadio

Comment below on what your favorite “steal” was from poshmark

For me, it was a juicy couture bracelet, it was $20 brand new with tags. I’m not sure what the original price of the bracelet is but honestly that didn’t matter to me. I used to have a bracelet that looked just like it. My girlfriends and I all bought one at the same time at a little boutique. Since that day three years ago, I wore it practically everyday, so much that it actually broke. I was devastated when it did and have held onto it hoping that one day I would find a way to fix it. The Juicy Couture bracelet that I found on Poshmark was almost identical except instead of silver it was gold. I think it is so cute and amazing and  I just LOVE it. And I now have a bracelet that almost matches theirs again =]
