During october I went with my family to a beach on long island that was covered in stones, no sand. 
I collected a few flat stones and decided to do this easy DIY jewelry project.

Since the stone are pretty plain I wanted to add a something to make it a little more unique. 
I end up using nail polish to paint on simple patterns. 
Then I simply used E6000 glue to add the ring blank and earring blanks.  ^.^

Walmart Beauty Box Winter 2014 Review

The Walmart Beauty Box is a quarterly subscription box ( Fall, Winter, Spring, Summer)

Winter 2014 Box

Cost: $5.00
( box is free, you pay for shipping)


1) Burt's Bees Facial Cleansing Towelettes with White Tea Extract (10 count)--Travel Size---$3
I really like this, it cleans up makeup really well. I do have to say the smell isn't for everyone.

2) Dove Deep Moisture Body Wash 1.8 oz --- Travel Size---$ 1.20 
Dove is my go-to body wash, so I was glad to see this in the box.

3) Aveeno Daily Moisturizing Lotion 1oz ---Travel Size ----$1.80
Very moisturizing and has a very faint fragrance.

4) Covergirl Colorlicious Gloss in Juicy Fruit (640)---$6
Shimmery and goes on semi-sheer

5) John Frieda Luxurious Volume Shampoo and Conditioner .28 oz & $2.00 off any John Frieda Luxurious Volume styling product ---Sample size 
I like John Frieda, looking forward to trying this.

6) L'Oreal Paris Color Vibrancy Shampoo, Conditioner, Hair Mask---Sample size
I have tried this product before, my hair was smoother and has fruity smell.
To get two hair related products is kind of disappointing.  

7) Flower Fragrances in Cherished, Sultry, and Radiant. ---Sample Size
I like the Cherished fragrance

Value: ~ $12

I was surprised and slightly disappointed by this box.
 I expected something similar to the Fall Beauty Box which had a lot more full-sized products. This is still a great value for having only paid $5 and I do like most of the products. I will continue my subscription and hope Spring Beauty Box has better variety.

TARGET Beauty Box Review December 2014

Hi Everyone!
Have you heard of beauty boxes/ beauty subscriptions? 
I recently discovered it and I have to say I'm hooked! 
I love the idea, which is simply a box filled with beauty related goodies (from skincare to makeup) delivered to your door! 

 Beauty subscriptions can range from the price to the type/size/number of the products.  It can feel overwhelming with the countless choices. So for my first box, I opted for a one-time purchase box. 

This is my first beauty box!

They are available at different times throughout the year.
