CBB in a Year: 2014 in Review

Hi friends! I apologize for my brief absence; the holidays have been a hectic time. Today I am back to ring in the new year with you! I was inspired by Kriselle's post over on Livin' and Lovin' to do a "Best Of" post for 2014. Let's have a look, shall we?

Review & Thrifty Find: Dollar Shave Club (and How to Get Their Products Cheaper!)

Review & Thrifty Find: Dollar Shave Club (and How to Get Their Products Cheaper!)

Hey, friends! Yesterday I posted a link on my Facebook page about how women's shaving/deodorant/etc products are almost always significantly more expensive than men's. Today I'm sharing with you a shaving subscription box that's actually directed at men (I was recommended it to try it by my older brother!). It's a lot cheaper than many other women's razors you'll find at the drug store!

I haven't done a Thrifty Find in awhile, but today I've included a dupe on how to get these products even cheaper than they already are. Crazy, huh?

I pulled out the green holiday towel again, because 'tis the season...ho ho ho.

Birchbox: December 2014 Review

Birchbox: December 2014 Review

Hi, friends! The holiday season is upon us, as I'm sure you know (stores started carrying Christmas stuff in OCTOBER--gross). To show some holiday spirit and not be Sammi Scrooge, I'm photographing my December Birchbox on a green background. And who said I'm not festive? :)

Beauty Buff Holiday Wishlist 2014

Beauty Buff Holiday Wishlist 2014

Hi, friends! I hope you're surviving finals week. Today, the Beauty & Fashion Blog Community is sharing their holiday wishlists. The holiday season isn't about the presents, as well all know, but it's always a little fun to be shallow and dream. This isn't necessarily a gift guide, because we're all strapped for cash and I could only dream of being able to afford these products (plus they're really not necessary to achieve happiness or nirvana or whatever). But, if you're an older person you're looking for a gift for the beauty buff in your life, feel free to let this serve as a gift guide. This is essentially my dream list, if I had a forest of money trees growing in my backyard and it meant nothing to me. Let's get started!

Under $25

As college students, we're all strapped for cash. Even though this is my dream world, there are still some products that have a relatively low price tag but still deliver huge results.

This or That? (Tag)

Hi friends! Today I have a fun tag for you, called the "This or That" tag. I love doing tags, because they're a great way for us to get to know each other! I was tagged by the lovely Vivienne over at Jolie Pagaille to do this. Check her out--she refers to her blog as "a beautiful mess" since there's a little bit of everything on there.

This or That Tag Rules (but if you break any of them I promise I won't sic the beauty police on you)
1. State who tagged you (provide a link to their blog).
2. Answer all of the questions.
3. Select one "This or That" question for all your subscribers to answer.
4. Tag 4 people to answer ALL the this or that questions on their blogs (provide links). They say you really get to know people when they’re put in tight situations. Today’s “This or That” is going to do just that!

1. Blush or Bronzer? 
Blush. I only usually use bronzer in the summer. I own my pale-ness for the rest of the year!

Review: Modere Beauty Box

Hey, friends! Today I wanted to share with you a cool new beauty box by Modere. They make a little bit of everything, from skincare to vitamins to laundry products, and they've just launched a beauty box program. I've never seen anything like it before, so I wanted to share!
