Yes, the holidays may be over… we’re back at work, school, and things are getting back to the day-to-day routine.  But I’m still enjoying my Jingle VoxBox from Influenster!  This was a surprise box for me, so receiving this was extra special.  The contents were thoughtfully put together in holiday, cold weather beauty theme.

I wanted to share a few of the items that I know you’ll love also!  First, the Pure Ice nail polish in Home Run.  I’m pretty much obsessed with this color, which takes on a blue and/or aqua look depending on what color you’re wearing.  It’s a great pop of color for the winter!


I’ve never quite mastered eyelashes, but these from KISS were easy to apply and didn’t feel too heavy.  I love that the lashes are different lengths, which makes them appear more natural.


Also in the box was a deluxe sample of Cetaphil moisturizing cream.  My dermatologist recommends this product because it’s so effective at hydrating extra dry skin.  It’s also paraben and fragrance free, which I love!

Finally, what’s not in the photo is a coupon for Ore-Ida Tater Tots.  I’m not a huge salty snack fan, but when I found some of the great recipes for appetizers, I was hooked!  What an easy and fun snack for a Superbowl party!   The Kraft website is my go-to for recipes of all kinds, like these Chicken Enchilada Totchos:

Thank you, Influenster, for another opportunity to sample and review amazing products!



Net-A-Porter’s annual beauty holiday kit is finally here!  This box is one of the best of the best, filled with luxe skincare and hair products, and at just $139 you’re getting almost $400 of product.  Woop!!  While this would make a great gift for that special someone, it’s also a nice way to treat yourself.  There’s no better thing you can do for your skin than take care of it with quality products.  These boxes tend to sell out quickly, so don’t miss out!

Among the amazing finds in the box, Lancer’s The Method: Polish, a resurfacing treatment that helps give younger looking skin, This Works In Transit Camera Close Up, a mask, moisturizer and primer all in one, and Omorovicza’s Thermal Cleansing Balm.



Last night I received my February box from Wantable Intimates.  Wantable is one of my very favorite subscription brands, with options for makeup, jewelry, intimates and fitness boxes.  As a subscriber, you get a discount on the monthly price, plus you can skip a month at anytime.  They also offer easy, hassle-free returns if you’re not 100% happy.

I’ve actually had a couple of months lately with the Intimates box where I just wasn’t feeling the love.  Not a problem… they took the box back without questions.  I then took a moment to update my profile and fine tune what I love and don’t love so much, as each box is curated to your specific style, and you’ll never receive anything you dislike.


As you can see I let them know how much I love loungewear, and my stylist even wrote a cute note back thanking me for the input.  This month I received 3 pieces — a top & pant lounge set in a really fun blue, plus an adorable sports bra!  Since I live in loungewear around the house (especially the pants), this was a great choice for me.  I also workout a lot, but more importantly, I like to look cute when I workout, so the sports bra was a hit.  I’m already looking forward to my next box!Displaying IMG_0966.JPG


Net-A-Porter Valentine’s Box

My obsession with subscription boxes continues!  I’m really trying to cut down (really!), but when I see a great deal like this one, I just can’t stop myself.  Much like the feeling I get when I find the perfect shoe on sale.  (sidebar:  my skin is looking fantastic lately thanks to all the high-quality products I’ve been using from theses boxes).

The Net-A-Porter Valentine’s Kit started arriving in homes this week, and surprisingly there are still boxes available to purchase.  Even without knowing what’s in the box, these typically sell out within 72 hours.  So knowing how fabulous the contents are and what a great value it is – only $65 with over $200 worth of product – I can’t pass this up.  Though I do believe I’ll put a bow on it and tell my husband it’s his Valentine’s gift to me.  🙂

Included in the box:

Now that the contents have been revealed, I’m sure the remaining boxes won’t last long, so go snap yours up now!

You know I love POPSUGAR, and I recently posted a couple of spoilers on the Holiday Box for Her.  The full box spoilers have now been revealed, and surprisingly there are still boxes available to order.  If you haven’t ordered a box yet, you’re in luck because POPSUGAR is offering a free December box with the order of a holiday box.

POPSUGAR Her Holiday Box

Thanks to Liz at My Subscription Addiction for sharing the spoilers!

POPSUGAR Holiday Box Spoiler

POPSUGAR is one of my favorite subscription boxes for the variety and quality of products they send.  In recent months I’ve received a pair of Kendra Scott earrings, a beautiful Tilo scarf, and a couple of candles, among other great items.  If something’s not quite my style, it always makes a perfect gift.

In addition to their monthly box, they do special seasonal and holiday boxes.  As much as I’d love to buy them all, the seasonal boxes are higher priced, and when you don’t know what’s in the box it can be a bit risky.

Today POPSUGAR revealed the first spoiler on the Holiday box, and I have to say, I’m IN!!  I’m always a bit chilled, so I love throws and have them all over the house.  I’ve also been really pleased with other Turkish-T products, so this makes the box for me!  You can buy the Holiday box for $100 on the POPSUGAR site.

Yuzen Subscription Box

I recently discovered the Yuzen subscription box, a quarterly collection of spa and beauty eco-friendly items.  So even though I’ve been trying to scale down in the number of boxes I receive, this one seemed really unique with items I knew I’d love.  By default I’m not fussy about products being natural or organic, but I’m happy when they are!

My first box arrived over the weekend, and I’m really in love with the quality of the products, the detail in the packaging, and the overall level of thoughtfulness that went into curating the box.


The first thing that caught my eye was the personally signed card included in the box.  I love it when boxes have a theme that’s easily understood and relates to the season.

Yuzen Bag

The items all came packaged in this pretty organza bag.  These make great packaging for small gifts, and it makes the presentation extra special.

Yuzen Box

Pictured above are the contents of the winter 2014 box.  Yes, you had me at Dark Chocolate Covered Cocomels.  In fact,  you could have sent me an entire box of those, and I’d be ecstatic!

Also included were 2 Salus shower bombs – I’m really excited to try these, a large ZENTS shea butter soap, and a sample of Essence of Vali Sleep, a blend of lavender and other essential oils to ease you into sleep.  Love this!

Yuzen Details

There were also three great skincare products — I can wait to try the Jurlique eye cream!  I’ve used other Jurlique products and have been really happy with them.  And as a self-proclaimed eye cream addict, this was a win for me.  By the way, Jurlique is having a 25% off sale on their site through Wednesday, so if you’re a fan of their products now is a great time to stock up!

The Cowgirl Extreme C Serum is a new brand for me and something that I’ll definitely use, as I will the Acure facial scrub.

At $33 for the box, I’m really happy with the products and the overall curation.  Which product is your favorite?!
