What I’m loving Week #7


This week was really busy. I’m starting to think that life wants me to be more exciting so they like to continuously add more problems for me to solve. As you can see this week’s favorite things are a bit of a strange compilement. Lets break them down to fitness & chocolate and beauty.


I finally got around to go to the grocery store YES! (How sad is it that I finally had an hour to shop for food) I picked up Runner’s World Magazine and guess what they must have known that I am recovering from an injury and dedicated this issue to me. Look at the top corner “Injury-prevention Special” that has MICHELLE written all over it. Going along with that I had to pick up more KT tape to be able to continue to go to the gym, without this my knee is in pain. What is the best way to deal with pain?? CHOCOLATE!!!!! yes I have been using chocolate as a pick me up and my favorite one currently is Andes.


Enough about pain and stuffing my face full of chocolate. Lets talk about my beauty holy grails for this week. As a result of a busy week I have had no time to get “enough” sleep so Benefits Erase Paste is my BFF. Going along with that usually look like a zombie unless I add some blush and with lack of sleep you can over do blush sometimes. I have been loving this Maybelline Mineral Power Blush you can’t over do it and it’s such a natural peachy color.

This week I received my Urban Decay package and let me just tell you I am really enjoying there Naked Basics palette it is just what you need to complete one natural day appropriate eye look with a shade that works as a eyeliner as well. Oh i also forgot to tell you I picked up more nail polishes. *face palm* I really didn’t need any more but look at the pretty colors… review coming soon incase you wanted to check these out for yourself as well.

Have a great week everyone!
See you on Wednesday with the UD nail Polish review.

What I’m loving Week #3

Welcome back to what I am loving week #3. I can’t believe it’s been 3 weeks straight that I have posted one of these. Honestly I didn’t think I was going to stick with this, but I think this might be my favorite type of post I do on here.

Enough of my chatting about my lack of commitment to posting on here. Let’s see what caught my fancy this week.


This week I was excited because I found some cool new things and some oldie but goodies.


Lets start off by mentioning this shirt. I love the color combination and the polka dots. Did i forget to mention it is the softest, comfiest thing ever created by mankind. I want to live in this forever.

Ahhh my spiky necklace a steal for $2 this has been around my neck for the last week.



This week I have started making list and what better way to carry all my newly designed plans than on a cute journal with a awesome quote on it. Every time I look at this quote it makes me very happy.

My fragrance for the past month and I can almost guarantee it will stay the same this month is Coach Poppy. Yes I do carry around a roller ball incase i didn’t spray enough in the morning ;).


The last three things are some of my favorite beauty products. This month I have been loving Benefits Coralista and I apply it with my E.L.F studio blush brush this is a small enough brush that it places the right amount of product on my cheeks.

Last but not least is my new favorite winter nail polish from Drew Barrymore’s makeup line Flower. This polish is called Go With The Flow-Er. I was blown away at how opaque this polish is with just one coat. *Must resist the urge to buy the whole line* If you see these just look at them she has made quite a few different shades that you might fancy. (Yes I have been watching too much TVD, Klaus anyone?)

I hope you have a great week.
See you Wednesday with another post.


December Birchbox 2012


I am a huge beauty junkie which should be no surprise to anyone. I wanted to share what I got for this month’s Birchbox. I love getting this cute little pink box every month, knowing that I will be getting new sample size products to try out. You can find a list at the bottom of the post on what I received.


As you can see you receive a variety of things that would brighten anyones day. This is a monthly subscription service and it’s only $10.
You have the option of canceling at any time.


I am most excited to try out this Benefit Eye Cream called It’s Potent! It claims it can help diminish darkness under your eyes and reduce wrinkles. I will let you know how it works out.


About every other month you will receive a nice treat such as this chocolate and a perfume sample as well. This is one of my favorite pieces of the box. Last month I received a Luna bar and I loved it.

The products that came in this box:
-ModelCo SHINE Ultra Lip Gloss
-Benefit it’s potent! eye cream
-Chuao Chocolatier Assorted ChocoPod in Salted Chocolate Crunch
-Kérastase Resistance Ciment Thermique – Protect
-Aerie Shimmer 1.7oz Fragrance

Overall I love this monthly subscription. Each month has a different theme and you can get some products you love, enjoy and need. Other times you can get things you may not use, or enjoy but that is the mystery of this pink box.

Have you ever tried any monthly subscription service before?
Would you recommend it? What is your favorite?
