Holy crap! It’s
September October?! So, about that keeping up with blogging….yeahhhh… *tugs at collar*
But I swear I’ve been out having adventures, I promise! So hopefully now that the summer has slowed down (I’m still mourning the fact that it’s officially fall) I’ll actually have time to recap and write about all those adventures.
Back to the topic at hand – I promised you guys some updates on my first Birchbox delivery and my mission of embracing my girliness… Well, I’m happy to report that over the last month I’ve actually painted my nails TWICE. That’s right people – be impressed.
Here’s the haul I got from my first Birchbox: (more…)
Even this kitteh has more style than I do. source
Growing up I was a total princess – literally. Sarah means “princess” in Hebrew and that’s what my mom always called me. I did ballet, loved horseback riding and was never really interested in any other sports. I loved anything pink, sparkly and with ruffles.
I was also a total “daddy’s girl” and my dad loved that I was girly, but poor guy – you could tell he didn’t know what to do with it. He tried getting me interested in different sports, but it never took. He did however pique my interest with the adventures we’d take. We’d explore the state and national park hiking trails, go rock climbing, atv-ing, shooting and fishing. I think as I grew up his influence made me into more of a “low maintenance” princess.
I enjoy being low maintenance – if I could, I’d wear bootcut jeans, a tank top and boots (or flip flops – depending on the weather/situation) everyday. I prefer to let my hair air dry straight or throw it into a bun or a french braid to keep it up and out of my face. I let my hair grow long and only cut it probably once a year. Tinted moisturizer and mascara with a little bit of blush is my make-up of choice. As for jewelry, I pretty much only wear either pearl or cubic zirconia studs and my engagement ring every day. And I can’t remember the last time I painted my nails.
And recently my fiance even noticed and asked why I don’t do more girly things like paint my nails or do my hair – which made me feel like a total. girl. fail. (And bless his heart, he tells me I’m beautiful with no makeup all the time – he really was just wondering.) To be honest, I’m intimidated by it. I don’t even know what to do with most make-up and accessories – or I think it looks totally silly on me.
But I’ve made it a goal to be more adventurous with my girly-ness and one thing I’ve decided to do is to sign up for the monthly subscription from Birchbox. For $10 a month, you’ll get a box of top-notch聽beauty and lifestyle product samples to try out delivered to your mailbox. I know a few people that have been getting the boxes for a few months now and I have been totally jealous of the loot they’ve gotten. It’s a great deal. You even get points to put towards a product purchase if you review the products on their site or refer friends.If you even think you’d be interested in it, I recommend to sign up now – there is a waiting list and it can take a few weeks to get a notice that you’re allowed to officially subscribe.
I got my July box right after I returned from Montana – stay tuned for some reviews!
