Birchbox October 2014: Obsessed.

Birchbox is a beauty subscription box that is $10/month. I highly recommend you to subscribe to this box subscription if you would like to explained your experimentation of beauty care products. I have to say that since I have been subscribed to this box, it has not been all sugar and spice, but I have found plenty of new beautify care products that I've liked and added to my collection of things that I use. If you would like to subscribe to this box, please click here and enjoy! :)

I finally got my Birchbox for this month yesterday, but since it was such a busy and chaotic day, I wasn't able to open it until today! :) It came one day earlier than it did last month. I was hoping that I would be getting my box earlier in the month, but it's all good...it still came and that is good enough for me. I wasn't able to pick any of the samples this month because when I got the link in my email, the link wasn't working properly and I didn't have time at the moment to figure out what was wrong with it until later that night (I received the email right when was about to walk out my door for work) and by that time there was no more option to pick something...oh well...at least I got my box and I'm happy about it.


I am always excited to get my PINK Birchbox every month. It truly is a surprise in the mail...1) I don't know when it will come, 2) a package in the mail is always fun, 3) I don't know what I'm getting until I open it! :) Surprises all around! :) 


It always makes me smile to see how they describe me. I love how they do this, and I truly hope that people do notice that they do that instead of just tearing open their boxes right when they get it...because it's a smile shared...:)


As always, a box in a box! I need to figure out what to do with all the boxes that I have! I could probably use them around my preschool classroom or something. :) They are very good and sturdy boxes. :)


This month's theme is "Obsessed. Addicted. Can't get enough. Hold my calls." That is a long theme title thingy! *laughs* "Whether you're excited about blockbuster season, eking out about fall TV premieres, or searching for a new soundtrack, everyone has a fan in them. This month, we're sharing our passions-and we want you to share yours!"


I love how they put this in the box...just so that I know what I'm getting, how to use it, and if I do buy something, I would know how much it would cost. 


Right under that initial card was this card. 


....hm...there are several things that I can put in that blank! Nailpolish...fruit smoothies...music, to name three! :)


When I pulled aside the beautiful pink tissue paper, here is what I saw.


suki: exfoliate foaming cleanser (full size $32.95) It smells amazing! The sample size is super tiny...perfect enough for a one time use. Then you have a tiny container to use! :)


It looks pretty cool from the outside looking in...and when you open it, it smells delicious! :)


BeeKind: Body Lotion (full size $15) It has an extremely slight tea scent (I am guessing that that is the chamomile extract)...and it is super light, but if feels fully moisturizing!


Next for my little purple box!


More perfume! Clean: Rain Eau de Parfum (full size $69) It smells "clean" and I wouldn't go out and buy it for myself...but I wouldn't mind receiving this a gift or something. I would wear it for causal wear or something. 


Dr. Lipp: Original Nipple Balm for Lips (full size $14.50) When I first saw this in my box, I had to recheck my profile questioner thingy! I'm pretty sure there is no where there that ask if I was nursing! But then the card reads: "What: Originally made for nursing moms, this ultra hydrating balm is a makeup artist fave." Makes me wonder why it would be a "makeup artist fave." "How: Dab onto parched lips, cuticles, and elbows as needed." Interesting. Maybe I'll try it...maybe I'll give it away?


ModelCo: Powerlash High Impact black Mascara (Full size $20) Can't have to much mascara...or can you?! I have so many now...I might gift this one away...but I also might keep it. :)


Well, that was it for my Birchbox! Wasn't super excited about anything in it...but there is always next month. Hopefully, I'll get nail polish! There is always hope! :)

Thursday's Events.

I already know that I will be doing several blog posts on just today...it was just that kind of day! *laughs* So many things happened today and I didn't want to just skim over some of the things that happened and I didn't want to just talk about one thing...I wanted to document my whole day because its as such an amazing day today! But I know that I'm super tired and so I will post tomorrow the details, and right now I just want to blog about a "jist" of what happened. It was a fun day. :)

My day started early because we had a field trip to the Kailua Fire Station!! It was so much fun and very informational! I was talking to my boss and I was telling her I do not even remember going to the fire station before...not ever...even when I was younger. I think they just always came to my school or something, so going to the fire station was just as exciting for me as it was to the kids! :)


After the fire station, we all came back to school and while the kids went to sleep, I decided to make sensory colored bottles for my kids! They are super into finding all colors at the randomest places and things ever! And I am always encouraging the kids to "color" their world with imagination...and it's so cute to hear them tell the other kids in the school. "You need to color the world with imagination." *laughs* It's cute. :) 


I had to rush home because I had a VERY important appointment later and I had to leave the house at 4:00pm...and I'm pau with work at 3:30pm...and that is IF all the parents come to pick their children on time and whether or not they want to do small talk. *laughs* But when I got home, I pulled up nearly the same time as my housemate...and we both squealed and laughed when we saw each other and rushed into the house to get ready for our "appointment." But before I ran into the house, I grabbed the mail, and this beautiful pink box was waiting for me!


It was hard to wait to open it. I knew that if I opened it right then and there, I knew that I would be rushing to get ready for our important "appointment"...so I had to set it aside to open for later. I actually still haven't opened it...it's sitting behind me on the stool that I took a picture of it on. *laughs.* I will open it tomorrow and post my review about it then. :)

And now...for the very important appointment. Look where I went.


Can you guess?! Do you know where it is?! Mandy had an appointment at David's Bridal to try on wedding dresses! And yes, that was a very important appointment and I was to happy that she asked me to go with her! :) It was amazingly fun and I am so happy for her. I'm still smiling about everything! :)


Lastly, we went to La Tour Cafe for dinner and macaroons...oh my days! I love this place! :)

So much happened today that I don't want to forget...and I wish that this day could last forever...it was such a heartwarming day...and I loved it. :)

But for now, world, goodnight. :)
