January Bless Box Reveal

It’s time for another Bless Box un-boxing! I’ve written several times about how much I love Bless Box and how exciting it is to get a treat in the mail each month. I have loved being able to try out new things and maybe even things I wouldn’t typically buy for myself. Here is what came in the January Bless Box!

Wen Winter Cranberry Mint Treatment Oil: Retail $36.00

Wen Winter Cranberry Mint Replenishing Treatment Mist: Retail $20.00


These smell so good and are so cooling on the skin. I’ve already been trying these out and have really been enjoying them. The mist even came with a travel-sized bottle and it’s already in my purse for on-the-go. The treatment oil is good for the skin and hair and the mist can be used on the face, hair, and skin.

Juice Beauty Photo-Pigment Precision Eye Pencil: Retail $20.00


I like that this eye pencil is more of a grey shade and not black. I don’t wear eyeliner very often but when I do, it can sometimes look a little too harsh on me–so I’m looking forward to testing this out. Plus, I’m sure you know by now how much I love grey!

Yu-Be Moisturizing Skin Cream: Retail $7.00

Amika Triple Rx Shampoo: Retail $10.00


I will take all the moisturizer I can get this winter! My hands have been so dry lately and I’ve been trying to apply hand cream as often as I can. As far as the shampoo, I have never used this before because it contains wheat–but I’m sure it’s great because I really like other Amika products.

Ashley Shelley 2018 Monthly Notebook Planner: Retail $18.00


A cute planner is always a good thing to have on hand for staying organized and on track.

December Bless Box Reveal

How has your first week of 2018 been? Hopefully you’re staying warm in your area of the world and looking forward to the year with anticipation. This week I’ve been laying a little low and not feeling great–but it’s been a great time to get some planning and writing done. There are a few things coming up for me in the next couple of months and I can’t wait to share those with you!

I hope you’ve enjoyed the Bless Box reveal posts that I’ve done before and I’ve had some requests to do them more often. I get so excited every month when these are shipped because it’s always so fun and so surprising to see what’s inside. This post is not sponsored but I truly do love Bless Box and everything that Sazan and her team have created it to be. I also think Bless Box is a great form of self-care and if you are interested in signing up–visit the website at blessbox.com. Here is what was in the December Bless Box!

September Bless Box Reveal

September’s Bless Box was so carefully thought out, uniquely designed, and purposeful. September’s box provided a way to give back to communities with some special collaborations involving different companies. The box design was created by an 8-year-old girl called DearGiana–and she did a fabulous job! I’m excited to share with you the things that came in September’s Bless Box!

True Citrus Original Lemonade–Retail $5.00. These came in a previous Bless Box and I really enjoyed being able to pour the packets in some water and have an instant beverage. I took my previous box of these packets on my trip to Washington DC, back in July, and they were a life-saver for beating the heat.

Dang Caramel SeaSalt Coconut Chips–Retail $3.99. I’m actually eating these as I write this post–girl got the munchies. Super yummy!

ArtNaturals Signature Essential Oil Roller–Retail $6.99. The essential oil roller I received is specifically for anxiety–yes please, I’ll take that.

CitraGreen Wheatgrass Tablets–Retail $11.00. These are tablets that contain Iron, Calcium, and Vitamins A and C. I’m not sure if this is something I can drink–due to the wheatgrass–but I’ll do some research and find out.

Pura Vida Bracelet–Retail $5.00. So cute! I love all of the colors in this bracelet!

Beauty Infusion Revitalizing Peel Off Mask–Retail $7.99. I always love a good face mask and can’t wait to try this!

Yu-Be Moisturizing Cream–Retail $3.99. Apparently, you can use this cream on your face, elbows, knees, and/or feet and this can be applied in the shower or on dry skin. Perfect for the colder months ahead.

Skin Inc Pure Revival Peel–Retail $5.00. This product is a gentle, non-abrasive, chemical peel/exfoliant and helps to remove dead skin.

Chaleur Heat Penetrating Mask–Retail $10.00. This looks really interesting and I’m curious to give it a try! This product is a self-heating face mask that soothes and hydrates the skin.

STILA Stay All Day Lip Liner–Retail $20.00. This lip liner is in the shade Rose. I don’t typically wear lip liner but this doesn’t look like it would be too pink for my coloring. I have it swatched in a photo below.

STILA MATTE’i cent Lipstick–Retail $22.00. This lipstick is in the shade Etoile. When I swatched this, see below, the formula was very creamy! Can’t wait to give this a try.

Doucce Smudge Resistant Eyeliner–Retail $20.00. I needed a new eye liner so I’m really happy to give this product a try. The name says that it’s smudge resistant–which is exactly what I need because my liner tends to bleed to transfer on my eye lids.

RealHer Eyeshadow Palette–Retail $28.00. What pretty fall colors! Most of these are definitely my colors!

I can’t forget to mention that there are also all kinds of coupons included with each Bless Box and this month’s were for Yu-Be, Chaleur Beauty, and Qupid shoes.

July BlessBox UnBoxing

About a month ago I wrote a post all about BlessBox. It’s been such a fun subscription service to be a part of and I’m always very excited when I get the email each month that says “your BlessBox is on the way.” I think each month’s contents keep getting better and better! I wrote a post about a my May BlessBox and I had a few responses from readers who said they like reading “unboxing” posts, so I thought I would write about the things that came in July. This is not a sponsored post but if you would like you sign up for this subscription service (which I totally recommend), visit their website by clicking **here**.

Bless Dad Cap: Retail $39.99

How cute is this?? I don’t normally wear pink, or even own anything pink really, but I think this is a classic blush shade. Bless up!

Primal Kitchen Macadamia Sea Salt Bar: Retail $2.99
Suja Juice Coupon: Retail $2.99

I’ve received a few Primal Kitchen bars in other boxes and they are really yummy and filling! I like Suja Juices, also, and will usually get them when they are on sale and so I was excited to get a coupon for a free one.

Amika Perk Up Dry Shampoo: Retail $24.00

I have used this product before, in a smaller size, and the scent is light, fresh, and the dry shampoo also gives your hair a little extra texture and wave. I was excited to see a full-sized bottle in this month’s box.

Orly’s SuperFood: Retail $8.99

What a summer-y color! Apparently this is a base, color, and top coat all in one?? Yes, please!

Perverse Sunglasses: $50.00

These aren’t sunnies that I would normally wear but I thought they were so adorable! I can’t wait to add these to all the black, grey, navy, and striped items that I have in my wardrobe.

NKD SKN Gradual Glow Daily Moisturizer: Retail $5.00

Who doesn’t like having a nice tan, without having to lay out? This girl!

Honey Girl Organics Face & Eye Cream: Retail $32.49

I have been using this for the last week and it’s such a nice face cream! It leaves my skin glowing and looking hydrated. I was out of my normal face cream so it was nice to get this and start using it instead. Plus, this is an organic brand that is made from natural and wholesome ingredients.
