June Birchbox and Weekend Shenanigans

Happy Monday!!

Welcome back to the work flow, whomp whomp!

So this weekend the hub and I got up and went to see 22 Jump Street. It was hands down AMAZING! We aren't big on going to the theater, but we decided that Sunday was going to be our date day. 

After laughing our asses off to Channing (insert goo goo eyes and drool face) and Jonah for two hours we went out to Red Lobster for lunch. Have you seen it? If not go now, its okay your bosses will understand.

 At Red Lobster I had the an appetizer as a main course, the Lobster, Crab and Seafood Stuffed Mushrooms and Coconut breaded Shrimp (only ate half). Then we splurged and had some dessert. OH LAWDY that chocolate cake with chocolate syrup, chocolate chips and ice cream was so good I felt myself bloating up as we ate! But like good ones we left without finishing it.
We went grocery shopping in an attempt to walk off the fact we were chocolate wasted.

After cleaning house and grilling chicken and veggies for supper, the hub and I sat down to play our new game, Forbidden Island.

It is a strategy/team work game. All the players have to work together to collect the treasures from the island and get succesfully to the helicopter before the island sinks. We had a blast and we even won on our first time!!

Whats your favorite board/table top game to play?

Also this last week I got my Birchbox ! 

It included:

Liz Earle Cleanse & Polish Hot Cloth Cleanser Starter Kit - It is a British award winning product, I had personally never heard of it. Its a two step system to purify skin. You apply the cleanser and then using hot water, soak the the muslin cloth and wipe off cleanser in small circles. It made my skin nice and soft without the redness that regular exfoliation causes.

Harvey Price "Hello" - This yummy and springy smelling perfume went straight to my gym bag to wear that day.

Supergoop! Everyday SPF 30 with Cellular Response Technology - I love Supergoop! First off and I love me sunscreen samplers that aren't that typical sunscreen smell. I love the samples I get because they are so easy to stash in the car or my purse for when my face needs it most. My face gets color easily so thats the main place that I apply it.

Cynthia Rowley Beauty Eyeliner, Black  - A smudge proof, eyeliner form a NYC Designer, this came at the BEST time. I was out of eyeliner and going to have to either go out of  my way to go get some or go with our for 5 days. Which isn't a big deal but eyeliner is a staple in my makeup routine. This went on easy and smooth and lasted all day and washed off easily!

Davines Love Smoothing Shampoo, Conditioner and Ol All in One Milk  - This trio is meant to smooth, soften, detangle and tame frizz. My hair naturally is a hot mess, a ratchet, frizzy hot mess. I gave this a shot for 4 washes. ( I only wash my hair every other day or every 2 days). You use the shampoo and conditioner as normal and after you towel dry apply the Milk and style. In all honestly it didn't detangle as much as I wished it did, BUT it did soften, smooth and tame the shit out of my frizz. I couldn't believe the lack of frizz and how easy it was to style my hair all those times and even on the second day hair also. It did super on that!!

Have you tried any of these before??

Also head over to my lovely friend Tatum's Blog to check her 12 week progress with her trainer, she freaking MURDERED it! She's looking stellar!!

  1. That sounds like such a fun game! I love strategy games. Have you ever tried Blockus? It is more fun with 4 people, but my boyfriend and I play 2 colors each to make it more fun for just the two of us!
