Honeycat Cosmetics Surprise Gift

Hello Gorgeous!
Today when I went to go get my mail for the day I noticed that I had a package from Honeycat Cosmetics. I didn't remember ordering anything lately. So I was really anxious to get this packaged opened. Once I opened it I saw this pretty pink box!


On the box was a note card with a really touching message that read: "Someone who loves you says, 'Don't you dare give up! Things will get better.'" That really touched my heart. Lately I have been having some hard times with family issues and sometimes it feels like those issues are never going to get better. This card and gift just completely made my whole weekend! I am still unsure who sent it, if it was from someone I know or from Honeycat Cosmetics but to whoever it was that sent this to me thank you, thank you so much. This means so much to me!


This gift was packaged so nicely as you can see in the above pictures. I was sent two items, one which is a white and pink wash cloth with the Honeycat Cosmetics logo on it. It is just so cute! The other item I was sent is Honeycat Cosmetics Sweet Potato Pie Bubble Stuff. It is a really big bottle! Definitely not a sample size. This bubble bath stuff is said to be extra rich, super bubble, sweet potato pie scented. This bubble bath is loaded aloe, shea butter & macadamia nut oil. A purrfect recipe happy skin. I can not wait to try this stuff out. It smells so delicious! Once again I just want to say thank you so much for this gift, it really made my weekend just that much more special!

Until next time, take care <3

Birchbox February 2013

Hello Gorgeous!
Birchbox much like Ipsy had the same theme this month which is Red Carpet Ready. What a coincidence right? Well anyways lets jump into what was included in my box this month:


- Ojon Volume Advance Thickening Spray (Size: 1.8 fl oz)
All of the volume advance products are packed with protein-rich Peruvian amaranth, which helps seal cuticles (the scales that compose the outermost layer of each strand of hair) and adds body and flexibility. The spray also contains the lipid-rich ojon oil from the rainforests of Central America, known as “nature’s golden elixir” for its restorative properties. Taken together, these ingredients, along with ginseng, soy, and wheat protein, nourish and fortify hair, buffering it against damage from heat styling. Finally, bergamot, lavender, and tonka bean essential oils lend a refreshing herbal scent.

- Color Club Fiesta Collection in Mamba (Size: 7 ml)
Color Club is known for its rock-solid polish formula, and this latest collection doesn’t disappoint. The creamy formula dries to a glass-like finish in two coats and won’t peel or bubble—two of our polish pet peeves. Color Club shades are free of formaldehyde, toluene, and DBP, so you can breathe a little easier. Mamba is a sheeny red color shade.

- Juicy Couture La La Parfume Spray (Size: 1.5 ml)
Bright and zesty mandarin, crisp green apple, and tart red currant notes open up the fragrance, while soft lily of the valley and orange blossom lend it a hint of chic femininity.

- Ghirardelli Milk & Caramel Squares (Size: One Square)
Ghirardelli uses a proprietary blend of cocoa beans, an intense nib roasting process, and an extra-thorough refining process to help ensure the smooth consistency and rich flavor of the chocolate.

- Twistband headband Collection (Size: One Headband)
Skinny and stylish, each band is made of super-soft elastic that won’t leave a crease behind or induce a dreaded headband headache. They’re especially great for those growing out their bangs.

Until next time, take care <3

This is a monthly subscription service with the price of $21 each month this includes free shipping. So lets jump into the polishes that were sent this month.


- High School Crush
This is a creme light pink shade. When applied it does apply on the sheer side but of course if it is layered it can be buildable. I personally thing its a lovely color and a staple in any nail polish enthusiast collector's stash.  

- Wartime Romance
When I first heard the name of this month's collection this is the kind of shade that I pictured being sent out. It is a gorgeous vintage dusty rose creme shade.

- Dear John
This is a stunning deep maroon / burgundy shade. This polish does have a nice shine to it. I really enjoy this shade because when applied it looks like just like a deep shade of maroon but when the light hits it that's when these specks come out that make this a very unique polish to have. 

This is yet again another great month with Square Hue! This company really knows what they are doing and definitely knows how to treat their customers. Cant wait to see what the month of March holds.

Hope you dolls had a great time during the holidays! Square Hue's theme for this month is The Arctic Collection. Square Hue is a nail polish subscription service where the company sends three full size nail polishes of .50 oz to keep. Each month the colors sent will be colors that are in style and up to date with today's fashion. The nail polish are 3-free clean formula - does not contain DBP, Formaldehyde, and Toluene and are not tested on animals. This is a monthly subscription service with the price of $21 each month this includes free shipping. So lets jump into the polishes that were sent this month.


- Arctic Frost
This is a sheer glittery nail polish. This would look great on top of any matte or cream colored nail polishes or even ones that are already glittery nail polishes if you want to add some more sparkle to your nails. Such a great nail polish to have in my collection!

- Glacier Skies
This is a cream nail polish. Reminds my of clear blue skies in the mountains. Such a lovely light blue color. Perfect for all of the seasons.

- Midnight Flurries
This is by far my favorite one out of this collection! I cant wait to apply it to my nails this evening. This is a gorgeous medium shade of a dusty blue with glitter specks in it. The glitters seem to be holographic depending on the angle you are looking at it changes the color the glitter specks appear to be. It is just such an awesome shade & right up my alley of colors I would choose on my own.

Overall I am so thrilled with this month's collection. I cant wait to see what future months hold with this company. So far these past two months have been beyond expectations. I truly hope they keep it up because it is just an amazing service to be part of! If you are not signed up with this company I would definitely suggest that you try this company out. They will blow your socks off!

Until next time, take care <3
