Birchbox - June

I was so excited to see that little pink box in my mailbox on Monday.


I never look up the theme of my box before I get it, because I think it's more fun not knowing.
So, I was surprised when I saw the cute little stamp designs on the inside of the box.


They made more sense when I found out that this month's theme was "Jet Set."


Anyways, here are the products that were in my box.


1. Masqueology - Brightening Mask (I am really excited to try this type of mask.)

2. Likewise - Facial Moisturizer + Sun Protectant SPF 50 

3. Stainiac in Beauty Queen - lip and cheek stain

4. Ada Cosmetics - Bronzer

5. Lifestyle Extra - Cynthia Rowley Dress Up Band-Aids ( I actually got a full size of this product, which is worth $15, so I was pretty excited about that. Who can't use Band-Aids?)

Overall, I was really happy with this box. The only thing that I don't know if I will like is the bronzer. Bronzer never seems to look right on me and this one has a lot of shimmer in it which I don't usually like. I am still excited to try it though, and everything else in my box. 

Have you tried any of these products? If so, did you like them? Let me know.

Quick Update

I never meant to take such a long break from this blog.

What have I been up to?

1. I decided to try Camp NaNoWriMo. So far I'm not doing so well, but I haven't given up yet. (Camp NaNoWriMo is basically the same as NaNoWriMo, it just takes place in June and August instead of November.)

2. My husband and I have been spending time at the lake, enjoying the sun.

3. We also spent some time at the Kansas City Zoo this weekend. They had a special event for Friends of the Zoo and we had a blast!

4. I took a couple of small road trips with my sister-in-law two weekends ago. We had a lot of fun and I may write up a little post about them if I get the chance.

5. We are currently driving a rental car because of a minor accident we were in about a month ago. Our car is getting fixed and hopefully it won't take too much longer. 

Again, sorry this blog has been silent for so long. I plan on getting back to posting on a regular schedule soon.

With all of the stuff going on (especially Camp NaNoWriMo) my schedule is a little out of whack. 

I should be getting my June Birchbox in the mail today, so I will have a post about that coming soon.

How has your summer been so far?
