August Monthly Beauty Boxes

A year ago, I saw my best friend posting pictures on Instagram of these beauty boxes she was getting. I liked what I saw and decided to sign up. I currently have two I subscribe to, which are Birchbox and Beauty Army. With Birchbox, you fill out a profile and they send you 5-6 samples based off the profile you made. I love the element of surprise and have enjoyed all the samples I have received so far. Beauty Army, you also fill out a profile but you get to choose up to 6 samples. I was loving the new products to try but I'm starting to get repeats of products I've chosen in previous boxes.  And I noticed in the last two boxes, there was a sample I did not choose. I think I should get an email saying what I picked has been sold out and to pick something else. So here are my August boxes.

The one on top is Beauty Army:
Marula- Facial Oil
Pida- Exfoliating Gel
Color Smash- Hair Color
Remington- Head Bands
Adonia- Organic Tanner (the product I didn't choose)
Mighty Leaf- Ginger Peach Iced Tea
I have not used any of these products yet but I know Mighty Leaf read are amazing!!

Birchbox is on the bottom:
Malin&Goetz- Vitamin E moisturizer
Mally Beauty- Waterproof Eyeliner in Sailor
Uniqone- Hair Treatment
Whish- Coconut Milk Correcting Gel and Deodorant Wipes

I love, love, love the Mally Beauty eyeliner. It's a pretty blue color that goes on smooth, doesn't smudge and looks great against my complexion.
The Malin&Goetz moisturizer was pretty good. My skin didn't get dry and it felt good. My skin is funny with moisturizers so I would have to really try it for a while to really review it.

Book Review: Dreams Are Built Overnight

Can't believe my birthday is next week, next Monday to be exact! I just want to have a nice, relaxing day. Today I am bringing you another book review (I know, two in one week lol)!

I have to say, I really proud of this guy and everything that he is doing now. I actually went to elementary school with David and he was a pretty cool person(and still is lol). Before this book, he started a company called Sleep Is 4 Suckers which sells apparel with a message behind it. David also expanded into motivational speaking and is a pretty dynamic speaker. I really wanted to support him and read this book because I was really drawn to the title of it.

I honestly did not want to put this book down when I started reading it. I read this book every free moment I had because I really wanted this information to sink in. You can really visualize what David is saying in this book and really picture the message he sharing. He really does drop a lot of amazing knowledge, tips and advice in this book.

Happily Ever Johnson: Registries, Rings and Things

It is crazy how fast this wedding is approaching! I can't believe it is almost February and June will be here before we know it! We have done so much with wedding planning and trying to make sure we have everything covered. First we started with finishing our registries. We started them but it just didn't feel complete. Earlier this month we attended a Sip and Scan event at Macy's. They had representatives from different brands such as Mikasa, Kitchen Aid and All Clad to answer any questions about products and to help you pick out the things you would like to put on your registry. They had a DJ there, passed hors o'derves and mocktails.

Here we are with the scanner having registry fun lol

We didn't have our formal or everyday dinnerware on the registry and finally picked those out. It was hard trying to decide what to go with. For everyday, I was looking for something that was durable since we have a 5 year old and dishware that was going to last. For our formal di…
