Motivation Monday: Silliness

Good Morning Lovelies!
I'd like to welcome you to hell finals week.
For those of you who are finishing up your classes, I'd like to wish you a good luck on all your finals! 

And remember... 

So while your tackling finals, or simply getting through the week, be sure to enjoy those rare moments when silliness prevails.

April Birchbox

Good Morning Lovelies!
Motivation Monday has [very temporarily] been replaced by this months 
Birchbox Post 

If you haven't heard of birchbox, it is a $10 monthly subscription for which you receive 4-5 deluxe beauty samples. 

This month's box was a tip of the hat to earth day, which was absolutely lovely!
The box contained: 
[The box comes with a product description card, which says:]
1. Atelier Cologne- Orange Sanguine Cologne Absolue
It doesn't get cheerier than this juicy scent, a pure blend of blood orange, jasmine, and sandalwood. 

2. Befine- Skincare Sampler
Revive dull skin with this gentle cleanser and moisturizer duo. Both use rice extracts to restore skin's natural barrier. 

3. Olle Biologique- 004 Huile Moderne
This lightweight blend of five organic essential oils- including argan, rosehip, and bergamot- can be used on face, body, and hair. 

4. Revolution Organics- Freedom Glow Beauty Balm
A real triple threat, this all-natural pigmenet adds a healthy glow to your cheeks, lips, and lids. Use it for a gorgeous, unified look. 

5. Le Palais Des Thes- Tea Bags
Little known fact: the French take teatime just as seriously as their coffee breaks- as evidenced by these sophisticated Parisian green tea blends. 

The Befine box contains a couple [large] single use packets of cleanser and moisturizer, which each contain enough product for more than one use. 

I haven't tried the skincare oil, but was intrigued by the packaging, as it came in a spray bottle. I've used more than my fair share of hair and skin oils, but never one in a spray bottle. The perfume, however, does not have a spray top- which is unfortunate. The scent, though, more than makes up for the packaging. Picture a summer sunrise in a fantastic destination- that is this scent. 

The perfume also came with a post card, which will more than likely end up taped to my mirror, as I instantly fell in love with the print. 
The revolution organic product was also a surprise. I believe this is a full size product, but don't quote me on that. 

I received the color "Blushed". 
I did a quick swatch of the product, but haven't gotten the chance to truly try it out. 

I thought I applied a small amount, but it turned out to be quite a lot. 

This is gently buffed out, but not much.

Motivation Monday: Take a Breather

Good morning lovelies! 
Hope everyone is having a fantastic monday, and enjoyed a great weekend :)
If the weekend, or lets face it, the average monday, is a little more than you can handle with grace, 
remember to take a deep breath. 

Enjoy your monday!

Motivation Monday: Be Great

Good morning lovelies! 

Hope everyone's having a fantastic Monday :) 

Here's a thought to ponder, and maybe even put in practice as you're going through your day:

I'd like to thank my beautiful little sister for making this photo possible, 
and being the kind of woman the devil would fear. 

What thought is motivating you this monday?
