My Favorite Things: October 2014

My Favorite Things: October 2014

Happy Sunday, friends! It's the end of the month, which means it's time for me to talk about what new products I've discovered, rediscovered, and undiscovered(!?). Included here are some new goodies, some stuff I started using again after neglecting them for awhile, and some products that I tried and just plain disliked. But enough about that--let's get to the good stuff!

Birchbox: October 2014 Review

Hi, friends! My Birchbox arrived a few days ago, which means it's time for my monthly unboxing! I'm really happy with my box this month, so I can't wait to share it with you.

Birchbox? What's that? - Birchbox is a monthly beauty and lifestyle subscription service. It sends 4-5 deluxe samples that are curated to your beauty profile. It is $10 a month, and has a wonderful rewards program, in which you can earn points for reviewing products and making purchases in the Birchbox Shop. You can then redeem those points for full-sized products! It's probably the best rewards program out there, in my opinion, which was one of the big draws in me signing up. If you're interested in subscribing to Birchbox, I would love it if you used my referral link. Thank you!

The Lazy Girl's Guide to Halloween

Hello, friends! Over at the Beauty & Fashion Blog Community, we're excited about Halloween, and we wanted to take the time to share our ideas with you guys. I know I'm personally a Scrooge (you can call me Sammi Scrooge), so I'm always out for how to get a festive look without spending a ton of money. Really, I aim to not spend money at all--it's more fun to taking on the challenge to use what I already have. Plus, I usually wind up having to work on Halloween, so I typically have about 15 minutes to change into my costume and get ready before hurrying off to whatever plans my friends and I have made.

Review: It Cosmetics Tightline Full Lash Length Black Mascara Primer

Hi, friends! It's been a little while since I last did a full review of a product, so today we'll be talking about the It Cosmetics Tightline Full Lash Length Black Mascara Primer. Phew, that's definitely a mouthful! As I'm typing this, I'm trying to say it out loud and I keep getting tongue-tied. I'll be referring to it as the It Cosmetics Mascara Primer for the rest of this review, just because who's got the time to say (or type) all of that?
