Let's Rewind a Couple Days...

Can we go back to Friday?
You know, so I can have another weekend.
That'd be great.
I finally got my Birchbox. Let me just say, it's been a little disappointing lately. The samples are tinier than they were when I first subscribed. My skin is so sensitive- I need big enough samples so I can fully try out the products. If the samples are too small, I can't fully try them out, so I don't end up buying the products. That's a little frustrating.
Here's what I got...

Lulu Organics® Lavender + Clary Sage Hair Powder- I haven't used this yet, but I'll give any dry shampoo a shot!

LUNA Bar- I'm not a huge fan of granola bars (especially 180 calorie ones like this), but will definitely put this in my purse for a morning where I don't have time to eat breakfast.

Karuna Hydrating Treatment Mask - I'm really looking forward to trying this... I love a good face mask

Embryolisse Lait-Crème Concentrè (24-Hour Miracle Cream)- This cream is actually great. I don't like the little packets it came in, but I could definitely see myself buying this 
cream...assuming it doesn't make my face break out the next couple times I use it.

Naked Princess Naked Shine Luscious Lip Gloss- This is the tiniest tube of lipgloss I've ever seen. I actually love the nude color, it's perfect for a neutral lip. It's not sticky and lasts a long time. I'd buy it.. except $26 for a tube of gloss? Uh, no thanks.

Moving on...
Next color from my cheap nail polish spree is this lovely gray color (NYC Sidewalkers). I've been looking for a grey polish in just the right shade and this one is a winner. It's actually done a great job of not chipping over the past day and a half. I'm pretty impressed.

The weather was gorgeous this weekend and I can't believe I still have a few peppers growing on the balcony. Isn't it a little cold for that?

Saturday night was spent with wine and Blogger. I was so exhausted from the crazy week and pretty much felt like sleeping every time we were home.

Sunday I went to the mall with my friend Katie and got a bad migraine. I felt so bad that I had to leave after just an hour of shopping. I felt so sick that I didn't even buy anything. That's when I know it's serious! After some rest, meds, heat pack, and a nap I started to feel better later in the afternoon.

This weekend should have been spent packing, because we're supposedly moving next weekend...
However, we're waiting to hear the final word. The other tenants are supposed to be moved out any day now, and we're just waiting for them to turn in their keys so we can move in to that unit. Waiting to move is just not a good situation at all. So, we didn't want to pack too much, in case it doesn't happen until the next weekend. 
Isn't that annoying?

I hope you all had a great weekend!
Linking up for Weekend Update :)


  1. The weather was so nice here too! I love that polish color, I've never tried NYC polish before. I feel like such a bad blogger. I have literally not touched a computer in 3 days...let alone finished a few posts I need to for this week! Oops ;)

  2. Love the nail polish color! I've definitely been feeling the gray colors and deep jewel tones lately. I like the one you shared here - not too dark, not too light!

    Have a wonderful week - happy Monday!

  3. I love that polish color! I've tried a gray from Revlon (chipped in about an hour) and one from OPI (too dark). I'm like the Goldilocks of gray nail polish.

    Enter My October Giveway!

  4. I cancelled my Birchbox a few months back after having a few small boxes in a row. I also don't think it helps with blogging you see what everyone else gets and it makes your box look extra dumpy! I hope you are feeling better from your migraine !

  5. I hope they are out of the unit soon! And you can finally sleep, and hopefully not be so exhausted and getting migraines :(
    I agree on birchbox, I'm giving it one more month (maybe two cause I would hope the December one would be awesome in time for holidays?) and if it doesn't impress me I'm switching to glambox.

  6. I wish we could rewind back to Friday as well. The weekends go back way too fast.

  7. I love love love that nail polish!!! The color is gorgeous! I've been feeling the same way about Birchbox lately, my samples were tiny last month! The hair powder sounds cool though, let me know how you like it!

  8. We got the same Birchbox. Definitely disappointed since they partnered with such a popular site like Goop. I've actually tried the full size Naked Princess lip gloss and it's quite lovely. Not a fan of lemon so threw out the snack bar. And tried the face mask and it was really great (and fun)!

  9. Okay, love that new gray color!!! And Birchbox seems to be going down hill fast lately. I cancelled several months ago, and seeing everyone's boxes lately made me glad I did. Sorry, lady!

  10. Your weekend looks like it was at least nice :) The wine and the computer! Ha, wish I was there for that one.
