US February Glossybox ||Giveaway


Yesterday I (Finally) received my Glossybox in the mail. I feel like it's taken forever! Well, it kinda did considering it's the end of the month, but oh well! I adored the theme of this month's box.

International Glossybox. 

They went with the international box this month because of the "Fashion week's" that are happening all around the world, which Fashionistas everywhere are flying to attend. This box was to give trends and pops of color to help you stand out from the crowd! Lets get to the products:

1. BVLGARI Eau Parfumee Au The Blanc soap
This soap comes from the Italian jewelry house Bulgari. It's a  creamy beauty soap that is scented with the fragrance of Eau Parfumee Au The Blanc. It cleanses and moisturizes your skin, leaving you feeling radiant and clean to the max! 

 2. MISSHA Super Aqua Cell Renew Snail Hydro Gel Mask
This hydro gel mask is an Asian beauty secret that Glossybox is exclusively giving to you! It moisturizes, soothes and regenerates your skin. It also reverses skin damage and has natural healing powers. It's also rumored that many celebrities use this product. 

3. NAIL ROCK Nail Wraps
Embellish your nails with these fashion forward nail wraps! They're designed to last up to ten days with no chipping or drying time! So if you're too busy to do your nails, grab one of these babies!

4. DA VINCI COSMETICS shimmer powder
 This shimmering mineral powder is America's top beauty secret. It's made from the highest ingredients that gives your face an amazing glow. Simply apply it with an eye shadow or blush brush as an under eyebrow or cheek highlighter/enhancer.

5. LISI Sheer Sparkle or Color Glaze Lip Gloss
One of New York's beauty boutiques brings us this perfect color punch of a lip gloss! With a semi-sheer formula that is rich with shine and a soft scent, that is perfect to layer over lipstick.

Glossybox Mag

Besides their products this month, I particularly enjoyed their Magazine. It features a travel guide, international style icons and best celebrity looks featuring top editor picked products. Out of everything though, my favorite part was the exposes they gave on certain cities of the world. 

Capital of Italy and one of the Glossybox's headquarters, Rome has magnificent art and architecture. They give the top three Dining places which are Roma Spartia, Ginger, and Pastificio San Lorenzo. 

Considered to be fashion capital of the world, there is no surprise that Glossybox has one of their headquarters here. It's an uber chic city which is every fashionista's dream shopping place. They name three top hotels which are Mama Shelter, Jules Et Jim, and Hotel Amour. 

The busy boulevards of the Spanish capital are filled with jewelers, fashion retailers and boutiques. Not to mention another Glossybox headquarter! The top three art spots to visit in Madrid are Cristobal Balenciaga Museum, Circulo de Bellas Artes, and Museo Del Traje. 

As you can see, this month's Glossybox is full of just the right stuff if you dream to travel. Or are interested in the fashion world from other countries.

January/February Favorites


I apologize for slacking a bit, with school starting back up and homework demanding coming back in, my video filming time has been cut short. So time to plan my scheduling better so I can have one a week up for you guys! So with that I leave you with my January/February Favorites and a little announcement. ;)

Backdrop: Creamy bokeh from Elm and Ink backdrops
Starbucks: White Chocolate Mocha (extra white chocolate, dur)
Purse: Steven Madden
Blush: Tarte natural cheek tint in Achiote
Lipstick: Rimmel London 820 Cherrylicious (Sorry about the brainfart in the video lol)
Lotion: Udderly Smooth Udder Cream
Hair Protectant: Oscar Blandi Dry Styling Heat Protect Spray
Highlighter: The Balm's Mary-Lou Manizer 
Hairspray: Professional Sebastian Shaper Plus Extra Hold
Foundation: Rimmel London's BB Cream Beauty Balm
Bath Bomb: One's Honey Pleae! Calm your Spirit bath and shower fizzed
Powder: Rimmel London's Stay Matte Pressed Powder

Setting up the back drop was really fun for my studio photography. My two year old, and surprisingly my cat, adored it! Here are some shots of how it went! 

Needless to say, it was really fun setting up the lights and such and having fun in the living room and producing decent photographs. Especially since it's so cold outside, and my two year old is my favorite model, haha. I definitely think I need to do some more studio style photography in the future.

What are some of your February Favorite products?

Detox Time

Today for the first time ever, I took a detox bath, and it was surprisingly easy. And surprisingly helpful.

For a simple detox bath, all you need is:

 1 cup of baking soda
Baking soda is known for it's cleansing ability. It also leaves the skin very soft. 

1 tablespoon of ground ginger
Ginger amps up the heat level, allowing your body to sweat out toxins. This step is optional because it will cause the temperature of your bath to rise. 

Bath soak or oils
This step is to just add your favorite scent to your bath.

I of course, topped off my bath with a yummy candle for more relaxation. 

After you put all the ingredients into your bath, soak in it for 40 minutes. Maybe read a book, listen to some music, or take a little nap. After 40 minutes, all the toxins and nastiness that was in your body will be almost gone. You'll feel loads better.

Do you have your own way to detox? And want to share? Leave a comment below! Or if you try it, let me know how it goes for you!!
