November Ipsy Glam Bag

Ipsy is BLOWING ME AWAY.... The past 3 months have been awesome, and this month was just as good. If you do not know what Ipsy is its a monthly subscription service for $10. They send you 4-5 deluxe samples based on a questionnaire that you fill out. If your interested you can sign up here.

In my bag this month:

It Cosmetics Bye Bye Under Eye Concealer ($24)- Its a full coverage anti-aging water proof concealer. I am already a huge fan of It Cosmetics so I was really interested in trying this out. It did not disappoint. Its really good. Its a trail size but since you need just the TINIEST amount it will last forever.

Starlooks Lip Gloss ($13)- I had never heard of this brand before, but this to is a really nice lipgloss and the shade is perfect for this time of year. This is a smaller size, but who really uses the a full lipgloss.

Be a Bombshell Eye Base ($14)- I have gotten this brand of things before. I wasn't a huge fan of the mascara but have loved the eyeshadows. This base is a great natural color and I wore just by itself for a  super easy look and it looked really nice. This is a full sized product that will last a really long time.

SeaRX Micro-Dermabrasion Face and Body Scrub ($32)- This was ok. It wasn't something I will defiantly be purchasing, but it was fun to try. It was a sample size so you can get a few uses out of it.

Marc Anthony Oil of Morocco Argan Oil Hairspray ($8)- This smells really nice, but does NOTHING for my hair. Was not a fan.

The prices listed are full size retail prices. So if you were to go out and buy them it would total $91... Wow thats a lot. So $10 to try them all out is not bad. 

This month I used my points to get the highlighter pencil. Its was nothing special and I kinda wish I had saved my points.

I upload my pictures and realized I forgot to take picture of the bag that came this month. Its really cute. 

Are you subscribed to Ipsy each month? I would love to hear what you got. Let me know in the comments.

Hot Chocolate Station

First things... I have NO natural light in my kitchen what so ever. So these pictures are not the best. Please forgive me. 

My Mom bought this Keurig when she was here visiting us. I don't drink coffee, but she does. She bought the hot chocolate cups for my kids to go with it. We or should I say I have really enjoyed having it. These machines are simple to use all you have to do is add water and it makes one cup of hot chocolate. We have been using it quite a bit so I thought it would be fun to make a festive little hot chocolate station. Not that is cold here are anything, but its kinda getting me in the mood for the holidays.

Aren't these little fox cups the cutest thing you have ever seen. I think so. Thank you Target. Of course.  If you don't have one of these little machines you could still do something similar and just fill up your jars with actual hot chocolate powder or the little packets. My kids think its pretty fun.

Don't forget the whipped topping. Makes it EXTRA fancy.

Here is a little sneak peek at my christmas tree that I have been working on. I will be sharing it soon!
