Birchbox - May

The theme for my Birchbox this month was "Gossip Girl."

Now, I don't watch Gossip Girl, so I have no idea how these products relate to the show.

The card says the samples were inspired by the series and Manhattan's chicest events.

1. BVLGARI - Omnia Crystalline Eau de Toilette Spray (also known as perfume)

2. Miracle Skin Transformer Body SPF in Glow

3. fresh - Sugar Rose Tinted Lip Treatment SPF 15 ( I have already used and fallen in love with this stuff. A full size is $22.50. We'll have to see if I love it enough to pay that price when I'm done with the sample.)

4. Kiehl's - Abyssine Cream+

5. Lifestyle Extra - A notecard. (It's cute, but I haven't figured out what I'm going to do with one notecard yet.)

That's it for my May Birchbox. 

Still no makeup, but maybe next month.

Have you tried any of these products? What did you think?

You Capture - Lines

*Sorry this is a day late. I completely forgot about You Capture. I did take this one picture this weekend with You Capture in mind and it would be a shame to waste it.

I hope everyone had a good weekend.

5 on Friday

1. I hurt my back this week. I don't know how I did it, but for two days everything I did was painful.

2. My Birchbox came in the mail yesterday. This time it was in a black box instead of pink. I'm assuming that had something to do with the "Gossip Girl" theme.

3. Started reading Let's Pretend This Never Happened  by Jenny Lawson (The Bloggess.) It is very good, I can't count the number of times I have laughed out loud.

4. I went shopping with my friend on Thursday and I bought some new lipstick. It's always fun to try something new. (Well, not always, but trying new lipstick is usually okay.)

5. I'm getting my hair cut next week and I'm trying to decide what to do with it. I always have horrible anxiety before getting my hair cut. (Which is why it only happens every 2 years.)

Weekend Recap

(Sorry there are no pictures.)


1. Warrior Dash - While not as hot as last year, it was still super hot. 
Luckily I was able to find a shady spot to sit and the boys seemed
to have a good time. 

2. Cinco De Mayo Party - My husband's friend throws a party every year, and we
had a great time hanging out with everyone.


-It rained most of the day on Sunday. 

- We had lunch at my Dad's house with family, but we left early
because we were still exhausted from Saturday.

How was your weekend?

Just a quick post today. This post has 2 parts.

Part 1: Weekend Recap

This weekend wasn't a great one for me. I just wasn't feeling the best.

BUT!! We did finish painting our house on Saturday.
(Well, not completely finished, we still have some touch up work, but that is all!)

Part 2: May Goals

I have made some goals for the month of May.

Nothing big, just some things that I think I  would like to work on.

The 3 B's:

Bags - I really need to get back in the habit of bringing my own bags when I go shopping. I'm tired of all the plastic bags taking over my house.

Blog - I feel like I've been doing an okay job of posting here, but I want to make a goal of posting at least 3 times a week for the month of May.

Books - I have a lot of books that I want to read, but I don't seem to be making the time to read them. My goal is to read 3 books in May. (This doesn't now include the one I am currently reading because I only have a few chapters.)

That's it for me.

Do you have any goals for May? What are they?
