Scentbird Pros and Cons!

dsc00911

Hi Everyone! How are you doing today? I am loving this warm weather. It is a nice change of pace from the winter lows. I am not so patiently waiting for my Scentbird to arrive, so I thought I would feature that in today’s blog!

Scentbird is a monthly beauty subscription that features only perfume. They have a giant list of high-end perfumes for you to pick from and add to your 12 month queue. The price is $14.95 a month and the bottle that is sent out has about 100-120 sprays or a month’s worth. Their slogan is that you get a chance to “date your perfume before you marry it.” I personally think it is such a great idea!

Perfume and body chemistry can either work together or clash terribly. I personally have a hard time wearing really warm fragrances. They get very strong after mixing with my body chemistry. Sometimes they can even make me feel hot…weird I know. Anyways, my point is getting to date your perfume isn’t all bad considering that a big bottle of perfume can be quite pricey.

I have really been enjoying my perfume each month. Another great feature is that the website is easy to use. There are ways to filter your searching by type or tone of the perfume, which  I have found helpful. Also, there is a decent amount of reviews which always helps me pick my monthly fragrance. I have 11 of 12 months already filled up….you could say I am a little excited!

My only real cons to this subscription are that they don’t have YSL Black Opium, so I had to go out and buy it. This one con may be meant to be a little cheeky. I didn’t have to and if I am being honest my hubby gave it to me for Valentine’s…I was thrilled. It smells amazing! Anyways, I am getting off topic.

My serious con to this subscription is that shipping usually takes a very long time. I get a tracking number and then wait what feels like forever for updates and for it to arrive. I will admit I am not sure if this is something Scentbird has control over. It could be an issue with the shipping company used. I do wonder if there is a faster shipping method Scentbird could use. I really think that is my only con.

I am thoroughly enjoy this subscription! Xoxo! Talk soon!

P.S. Here is a past month Scentbird.

A Nontraditional Valentine’s Day

Hi! I have always loved LOVE. I have always loved Valentine’s Day. I am happily married now, but long before I ever met my hubby I loved Valentine’s Day. Sometimes I feel like someone out on an island by themselves because a lot of people seem to hate Valentine’s Day. I get it…it is a very commercialized holiday, but it is still fun!

I can think all the way back to grade school with our little handmade boxes ready to be overflowing with little Valentine’s Day cards. Those were the best days! It didn’t matter if you had a crush or if you were even friends, everyone used the day to share in joy.

I guess I am also lucky because my Dad, who is a phenomenal dad, always made Valentine’s Day special. A box of chocolates or as I got older Edible Arrangement, which no one hates receiving (um..YUM). He always got me a card with kind handwritten words. The day doesn’t have to be about romantic love. It can be about any love. The love of your family, friends, significant other, and pets. We can’t forget our furbabies.

I totally believe that we should spread love everyday, but I don’t see anything wrong with taking one day to make sure you don’t forgot to tell someone you love them. There are a lot of people in this world who do not hear it enough.

If you are one of those people. I love you ❤

P.S. Since we are taking about Valentine’s in a nontraditional sense here is my latest video.

Drugstore Beauty is BACK!

Hi! How is your day going? I spent most of my day editing my video..it was a long one! I am now sitting here relaxing and excited to share this video with you all. I am honestly impressed with the latest at the drugstore when it comes down to beauty. Anyone else?

Makeup is huge right now; I mean look at me. I never thought I would have started a Youtube channel based around my “silly” pass time! Makeup popularity is at a all time high and there for a while drugstore brands were so behind. I grew up a drugstore only makeup user to almost completely deserting the drugstore! It was just too plain and boring.

Well, I am excited to say that drugstore beauty is back. The drugstore brands are really stepping up their game! My only two complaints with current drugstore products as a general whole are that depending on the brand they use some icky ingredients and that some brands are getting too pricey. Maybe it is just me, but if an eye shadow palette at Walmart is going to cost around $15+ then I’m going to save another $15 to get a high end palette.

I’d love to hear your thoughts! Xoxo!

A Little Get Ready with Me!

Hi All! I wanted to share my latest video! I must say I am so excited to still be loving the Too Faced Sweet Peach Palette. I am sure you have been there too…you know when you get a new product, which you use once and love! Then the next time you realize your first reaction may not have been the correct one. If you haven’t been there you are lucky, because I know I have!

These shadows are buttery, pigmented, fun, and classic all wrapped up into one deliciously scented palette. I will say I have not used all shades yet! I am sure I will at some point, but like with any palette I am drawn to some shades more than others. I think my favorite color so far has been the Candied Peach. It is so vibrant! Ah! I just love it!!

I hope you enjoy my latest video! Xoxo! Talk soon! Yes, I do love exclamations this much and it is actually how I talk. What can I say…it is the little things in life that just get me all worked up in the best kind of way!
