Beauty Box 5 May Reveal

 Hi dolls!  In case you're not familiar with BeautyBox5it is a monthly beauty box subscription that selects five of the industry's must haves and delivers them straight to your door!  There are various subscription options to chose from, but my lucky self receives a complimentary box each month in exchange for sharing the goodies with all of you lovelies :)

This month's sassy "Make May Your Bae" and have a Summer Date Night theme, set the stage for a super fun mix of products.  Let's check them out!

Daily Concepts Exfoliating Body Scrubber
Retail: $5.00
An all over body exfoliator is always good to have.  This one is advertised as safe for all skin types, and even lets you know when it's time to replace it as the label starts to fade.

Jersey Shore Cosmetics Mongongo Lip Conditioner
Retail: $10.00
This lip balm is organic, all natural and smells like coconut.  According to its label, since it's nutrient dense, it can be used anywhere on the face or body.  This will come in useful during the winter should you experience a dry nose.    

Jelly Pong Pong Bare Necessities Highlighting Pencil
Retail: $17.95
I'm a big fan of this pencil!  It's an eye shadow primer, highlighter and concealer in one!  I doubt I'll use it as a concealer, but as a primer and highlighter it's perfect.  

Cougar Beauty 24 Hour Liquid Lipstick
Retail: $12.99
This gorgeously pigmented lipstick is right up my alley.  It's light, bright and has pretty good staying power.
Nanacoco Jumbo Eye & Lip Pencil
Retail: $5.50

A crayon for both the eyes and lips, the color is one I'll definitely get a lot of use out of.  Probably not on my lips, but I often wear a lot of gold shadows.  I like crayons because they're fast an easy to apply, and this one goes on smoothly.  
 De La Cruz Arnica Salve
Retail: $5.99 (2 oz.)
I'd never heard of this brand before but was eager to give it a try.  It is designed to soothe dry, cracked skin.  And I'll admit, I love the crisp and minty fresh scent!
Overall, I loved this month's box.  Every product was full size, and are ones I've already started using daily.  Plus it was so nice of BB5 to include the complimentary extra sample.  I'd definitely say BB5 has improved through the years, and especially within the last few months.

FLOWER Eyewear Spring/Summer 2017 Collection

Spring has sprung!  And if you're still searching for that killer pair of sunnies, look no further.  Hollywood sweet heart and creator of FLOWER Eyewear , Drew Barrymore has released a gorgeous new Spring/Summer collection exclusively at Walmart.     
I was dying over these aviator style pair of Casey in rose gold with cream from the second I saw them.  The double bar is totally on trend, and seriously, who doesn't love anything in rose gold??  The signature FLOWER emblem appears on the side in gold lettering, over opaque temples.  The metallic frames are a chic finish and work well for dressed up or dressed down looks.
The packaging is girly and fun.  The glasses come housed in a durable pink case along with a floral cleaning cloth.  The lenses provide UV protection and best of all, they're affordable.  You get the designer look and feel for much less.  Each pair runs $39.00.   

Are you hunting for new spring shades? What do you think of the collection?

Bandelettes Throw Springtime Celebration at Lovage Rooftop


Last week, Bandelettes celebrated the Spring season with an event at the Lovage Rooftop in NYC.  The event was hosted by Project Runway Season 14 winner Ashley Nell Tipton, along with the brand's own creators Rena and Julia, who gave guests a sneak peek at their newest products.  

To catch you up, Bandelettes are stylish lace thigh bands designed to prevent chafing.  You can count on them to keep you feeling lady like and fresh during the unbearable heat.  They work great under a sundress or pair of shorts, making it easier to enjoy that backyard BBQ or afternoon jog.

And if you're not a lacy kind of girl, no problem!  Not only can you chose from an array of colors, but the line includes more modest styles that are even basic enough to be advertised as unisex.  

It was such a fun night and at such a gorgeous location! Scroll down to see more pics of the evening.
