November BoxyCharm

I received my November BoxyCharm. It’s ok. I’m not super thrilled with it. But here is what I got:

Dominique Cosmetics: Celestial Thunder Eye Shadow Palette. Retails for $35

The colors are so bright and vibrant. Plus I love the two glitter ones.

Juice Beauty: Stem Cellular Anti-Wrinkle Eye Treatment. Retails for $50.

Dose of Colors: Liquid Matte Lipstick. Retails for $18.

Vitamasques: Morning and Evening Mask Set. Retails for $12.

BoxyCharm: 2-Piece Brush Set. Retails for $35.

So that is what I received. It’s ok. But I have received a lot of matte lipstick, which I’m not a fan of, and eye shadow pallets. So I may need to go in and change my preferences.

What is BoxyCharm?

It is a monthly subscription box. For $25 a month and you get 4-5 full size products sent to you. I love it. If you want to try it, follow the link below.

Review

So I received this product free to review. And I’m going to be honest with my review. I had my oldest daughter, she’s 9, try it. She hated it. She spit it out. I thought it was just because she’s picky. So I had my youngest, she’s 5, try it. She eats anything. Not picky at all. And she didn’t like it at all. She said it tasted bad and made her gag. So unfortunately, we will not be sharing this product with others.

I myself gave it a try before throwing it out, and even I as an adult did not like it. So sadly, we threw this out. If it came in a gummy, that probably would have been better.

Arkansas, arwx, storms, weather

2nd Largest Tornado in Northwest Arkansas

It’s been awhile since I’ve posted a blog. I’ve been so super busy. As some of you know, I recently quit my job and opened my own women’s clothing store. It’s a scary thing to do, diving into the unknown. But I really think it’s going to be amazing. As long as I put the work in.

But now on to what I really want to tell y’all. On Sunday, we had severe weather. Now normally, I’m very vigilant with storms. I usually stay weather alert and stay up watching Darby Bybee, Chief meteorologist on 40/29 news, live videos. But I was so exhausted, I just fell asleep. Around 12:15pm, I was woken by my phone flashing and the faint sound of tornado sirens. Crap, how could I have fallen asleep at that time. I hopped out of bed, woke up my husband, grabbed blankets and pillows, threw them in the tub; the girls bathroom is our safe space; grabbed my girls and took shelter. We don’t have a basement. I turned on Darby on FB and watched as he told us what was going on. I also text my girlfriend Kandie and Mother In Law.

Luckily we were ok. We weren’t in the path of the tornado. But the NWS in Little Rock confirm that Northwest Arkansas has two tornados touch down. One from Eastern Oklahoma to Siloam Springs. And the second one went from Siloam Springs, through Cave Springs, through Highfill, through Rogers, all the way till Avoca. And that tornado was about 1.5 miles wide.

Here is a map of the path of the tornado. I am the blue mark on the map. Close.

So needless to say, that was a scary situation. And the aftermath was sad and devastating. Not as bad as Joplin as this tornado was an EF-1 and Joplin was an EF-5. But still very sad.

And now we are supposed to get anywhere from 2-6 inches of rain in the early morning. So now everyone with roof damage will not have water damage as well.

I guess NWA just can’t catch a break yet.

**The tornado was just upgraded by the NWS to a EF-2 tornado.**

California, Jewelry, subscription Box

Pura Vida

I received my first monthly Jewelry Box from Pura Vida today. I am so impressed.

The box it came in is beautiful. They way it was put together and wrapped up, it’s such high quality. You can tell this company cares a lot about the impression they make.

The box has a magnetic closure.

The papers inside are so cute. It looks like something you would get from California. (Which I am originally from California.)

They included this cute sticker.

Such attention to detail.

Wow, each piece of jewelry came in it’s own pouch.

It’s so beautiful. And it’s opal, my birthstone.

I love it.

They even sent me all these awesome stickers.

All in all, I am so pleased with this box. And this subscription. I love the California vibe of it. I can’t wait to see next months box.

Netflix, TV Shows

The Ranch

Do you have Netflix? Are you looking for an amazing show to get into? Well look no further because I have a suggestion….

The Ranch.

No I don’t watch a lot of TV anymore. But I do watch The Ranch. It is probably one of the best damn shows I’ve seen in a long time. I haven’t had a show make me laugh so much in a long time. Mainly because most of the TV shows that come out now are just crap.

The ranch is a show about a family of ranchers in Colorado. They are probably the closest you will see to an American family on TV. They have all the same kind of problems that we actually have in real life. They all cuss like sailors. I haven’t heard the F word spoken this much on a tv show before. They love Country Music. And they sure love their beer. They are my kinda people.

The show has humor, drama, and some political jokes that will actually make you laugh. Plus it has Ashton Kutcher and Sam Elliot. Two amazing actors and they are funny as hell.

So make sure if you are looking for something to watch, you check out The Ranch on Netflix. You won’t be disappointed.
