Spring Forward & March Birchbox

Ugh. It's Monday again. I dragged ass this weekend and the time change just made everything off for me. I hate when I get derailed. BUT life moves on. Unfortunately it moved on to a Monday.

So this weekend the hubs and I had a date night at home and watched Catching Fire, the second Hunger Games movie. Ohhh emmm geee, it was fantastic!! I read the trilogy in like 2 1/2 days and the movies actually match up to the books really well so automatic win. I love Katniss and Peeta.

The time always makes me think about how it will affect life. Like how much sleep will I get/miss, what do I need to do to adjust my schedule to get normal. But if you really think about it time change is kinda how you have to look at life or your lifestyle change. I fall back occasionally, slip up on eating, miss a workout, or just get off track in general. But then all it takes is just one simple moment and you spring yourself forward.
Yeah, I get it, it sounds corny. But just think about it, it's true. When you make a change for the better, it is never just a straight, easy, non stop journey. It's a cycle of setbacks and moving forward. You don't ever stop trying to move forward or you can get stuck. I forget that too easily. I forget that I can't just stop eating right and working out. Yeah I can enjoy myself and take a rest day- no problem. But I can't. Stopping everything will do nothing for me but undo my hard work and thats never worth it. We have to keep going forward, every little setback, mess up or anything just is a chance for us to prove how strong we are. So next time you're faced with a setback, take it as a challenge. Flip it into the solution.

Now for some March Birchbox action.

To see past Birchboxes go HERE.

This month I received:

Beauty Protector: Its a heat protector and a detangler spray. It works similar to my It's a Ten. I use a flat iron almost every day, so a heat protectant is a MUST have for me. It also smells really good, and someone told me my hair smelled really good after I used it so BOOM.

Coola Tinted Moisturizer: I've gotten quite a few of the Coola products through out my Birchboxes and I have to say they are really great. They are organic and smell good. I'm big on good smells. It also goes on smooth and naturally looking.

Gilchrist & Soames: Body lotion, goodness gracious this made my dry chapped skin, relieved and super smooth. Winner! I'm also a lotion addict.

Harvey Prince: I love smelly goodness, so perfume also wins almost every time with me. I hate the "old lady" smells but I don't like anything to french whore style either. Sexy yet elegant basically and this was right on key.

Tea Forte: These are mints, I love mints. They smell and taste similar to Altoids. They are infused with green tea and herbs and are supposed to promote wellness. Well I'm not for sure if they do but they are yummy and they have a cute container.

Ghirardelli Cherry Tango: Uhm you can never go wrong with chocolate. It also has pieces of cherry and almonds in it, making it a trifecta of deliciousness,

These opinions are my own and I am in no way paid to review these items, I do it for myself and for anyone who might be interested in trying these products.

Hows your week looking?
How was your weekend?


  1. Not cheesy at all!! I think it is a spot on comparison!

  2. This time change has really got me rundown too. Ugh! But, like you said, life goes on. *sigh*

    I too watched Catching Fire this weekend. I bought it Friday night but didn't get to watch it until Saturday morning. I already seen it twice in the theaters but it's so good, better than the first, I think. :)
