take the [glossy]box

If you know me, you'll know that I really suck at everything makeup related.
Having eyeshadow + lipstick on is totally rare, but I like to live on the wild side every now and then and fill in my brows.
When Adrianne at Glossybox contacted me and asked if I'd like a box of goodies in exchange for a review, I jumped at the occasion.
In this pretty little pink box I received shampoo + conditioner by
Sebastian, heel rescue balm by Alessandro Intl, a 100% organic lip balm from Figs & Rouge, and an eye shadow trio made by Senna.

Everything in this gorgeous box is something I'm already using, but makeup is almost like a foreign language to me.
However, you can teach an old dog new tricks apparently.
I'm learning that this eye shadow trio has really good pigment.
Does that make sense? Oh goodness I sound like an idiot. Thank you to Adrianne for sending me this pretty box of goodies.
I shall remain on my quest to master at least one really good makeup routine. In the meantime, this will be my new bible of vanity.


I've decided to stay in bed today and do nothing but blog and eat (dat) bbq chicken.
This is what my messy hair and messy bed normally looks like when I wake up.
I have a california king size bed so the extra room tends to lend itself to extra desk space.
Besides it taking up my whole room, it's also a hard place to get out of each morning.

♥ have a great week, ladies!

  3. That seriously sounds like the perfect sort of day...haha I feel so lazy! I keep feeling bugged though because I should work out or do SOMETHING, but I just got off work, so now I want to lounge around and do nothing.
    Anyway, I totally get where you're coming from when it comes to makeup...I can do a winged liner, and that's the fanciest thing I can do. Haha, everything else is just confusing

  5. Awe, haha, you're too adorable! I'm glad you're enjoying your new makeup goodies. I'm sure you'll figure them out soon enough. ;) I'm no pro at makeup, either, so I know how you feel.. I wear the same style/type of make up every day.

  10. Love this post with these beautiful pictures!! haha, I'm relieved to hear that I'm not the only one who sucks when it comes to makeup. Especially lipsticks are just a big BIG question mark for me. And when it comes to eyeshadows...well, as long as it's a light colour that you can barely see I can go with it haha :D
    hope your week has started off well babe! <3 love you!

    xx,

  15. your glossybox is pretty superb! we have glambox here in Estonia but I don't order it since it's pretty pointless.. they use the same companies over and over again which is boring.

  31. The products in your "new" glossy box that you've got looks very handy although I am much more curious about the eyeshadow :) btw you have a very beautiful bed, if you didn't mention that was your bed, I thought it come out of an interior design website or magazine

  49. The glossybox looks cool, I just cancelled my Birchbox thing after two boxes because the last one I got was totally dumb. So this looks quite interesting!

    PS. Not sure if I've asked you before, but where did you get your headboard, I want one just like that!!
