Update & Gifts

I'd like to first start out by saying thank you to all my new followers! What a nice surprise it is to log back into my account and see that I have quite a few new followers! :) So thank you to each and every one of you. You all make blogging fun and very worthwhile!

I apologize for the lack of updates in the past month. As usual, things have just gotten busy around here. I thought I'd have some time to update today since I just came back from a rafting trip and have today to rest and write at home but in actuality... I took a nap after writing that first paragraph. Haha but I'll at least make it through this small update. :)

First, a big thanks to Birchbox & Spa Week!
A few months ago, I won a nice little Birchbox giveaway at Spa Week. Totally unexpected and super exciting since this was/is my first time winning something online!

I received their April box a few weeks ago which contained a bunch of sweet goodies to try out.

Upon opening the box, mmmm it smelled so good! I wondered where it was coming from..

The sweet vanilla smell was coming from Lavanila's Body Butter in Vanilla Coconut<3

I definitely want to try planting this somewhere in my backyard. :)

Love the design on the side of the Blow Up shampoo bottle. 

Can't wait to finish trying out all of these products! My current fav out of the bunch is Juice Beauty's Stem Cellular Repair Moisturizer's sample I received. It's a tad thick but so moisturizing and I just love it. I use it at night and when I wake up in the morning, my skin is absolutely radiant. It just drinks up this stuff. I would love to purchase a jar of this for myself in the future though I have to say I'm pending since it's $65 for only 1.7 oz. Really great stuff though!

A big thank you to JH for the love box received earlier this week!

I can't wait to try out these Beauty Friends Mask Packs
I want to see what Potato smells like! Hehe~

And all of these Tony Moly goodies! Ahh~ I've been wanting a new Tomatox Brightening Mask and I especially can't wait to try out the Appletox Honey Cream! Thank you JH~! ♥♥♥

Thank you YJK for your package a few weeks ago!! 

A cute little jar of Baviphat Mango Magic Brightening Mask!

Innisfree Camellia Flower Tint.
I am absolutely in loveee with this tint! It works SO well. Given, it's a bit bright on the brush but upon application, looks fine in my opinion. It's definitely not natural looking but not too bright either. A perfect pop of color for the spring time and summer! Look forward to a review of this... soon? Haha.

Metaboo Bath Powder in lime! I used this a while back and don't remember much about what it smelled of exactly but I remember that the water was super neon yellow and that my bath was quite nice and relaxing. :)

I had to laugh when I saw the Nature Republic Mask Sheet with Rain/Bi on it. That's awesome!
Thanks YJK! ♥♥♥

Hoping to put up another post sometime soon. Thanks for all the kind new follows and a big thanks to those who were following before. Makes for a fun little surprise whenever logging back into this blog. :)
See you soon!
