Unboxing/review of 2nd Rocks Box!

I definitely liked the 2nd box better than the first! The chain was still REALLY short, even afer I indicated that I prefer long necklaces. They really did pay attention to what I wrote about liking nature themes though! Too bad they were either too big or too small... Im hoping the 3rd box will be just right ;)

Huge Sale at Julep!!

Yay! Awesome sale at Julep!!

I checked out the polishes available and there is A LOT!! Great prices too, like $2.99 for a really great quality polish. Nice!! 

Julep Beauty Inc.

The sale ends on 12/31/2013, so hurry up and pick up your favorite colors at a steep discount! 

Also, if you haven't tried the monthly service, you can try it for free with this coupon code: FREEBOX (type in at checkout). I think you pay a couple dollars for shipping but you get 2-3 polishes and some other nail or beauty product.

I love it, I wasn't really into painting my nails before but once I used these I don't mind changing colors every week, the polish dries SUPER fast!

Conscious Box [Gluten Free] December 2013 Review!

Just got my Conscious Box (Gluten Free) in the mail today!! This has been a great week for mail goodies! :)

I love this Larabar flavor! I eat these regularly because I'm GF and ALWAYS running around busy. My local grocery doesn't have this flavor though so it was exciting to get it in this month's box!

I first tried this peanut butter when I was living in NYC, it was at their restaurant… I bought the White Chocolate PB flavor and… well, I'm not a huge fan of PB but this jar was finished surprisingly quickly… Maybe it's best that I stay away from this one :P

Yay! I love receiving bath/cosmetic products!! I'll update with some product reviews after I try these out!

One can never have too many wet wipes! I ALWAYS carry some around. Some make fun, but they're also always the ones who ask for one lol!

And a couple more things I'll probably try very soon! 

I'll follow up with reviews and total value of this months box! I'll also put up some coupon codes for you! 

What did you receive in your December Conscious Box? Which version do you subscribe to?

Note: Conscious Box has 3 versions (Classic, Vegan, & Gluten Free). 
Price: $19.95/ month (this includes shipping) 

I've subscribed with discounts always though. Last time, I used a coupon that took maybe half off a 3-month subscription. Good deal! I'll re-check the details and keep my eyes peeled for more coupon codes! I think this may have been my last month, eek!

Taste Guru November 2013 Review!

**Ooops! I forgot to post this! I actually just received a 3rd box! I'll post that one today as well ;)**

What?? Why did I already get a 2nd Taste Guru box? I just got my 1st one from my 2-month trial order  a week or so ago this month… I will email them about this one. If it's a mistake and I get some freebies, that's fine with me! ;) I'd be a little sad if the 2-month trial meant 2 boxes at once because I kind of like having it spread out… like getting presents every month randomly, lol. But whatever, food is food any time right?

And this food is delicious!

Like coupons! Deals! ;)

Perfect timing for Thanksgiving!
**Update: We used this in our turkey and you never would have guessed it was GF!! Yum!**

Omg… this was SO good! I was hesitant at first actually… but shouldn't have been because this stuff is delicious!! I am definitely buying more! Tastes something like nature valley granola bites but better!

I love gluten free pasta! Makes me not so sad about not being able to eat pasta anymore haha! Tastes pretty much the same! Well… not always, but good enough and I don't feel sick afterwards anymore! :)

Can't wait to try this!! Waiting until the BF comes to visit, he's GF too so we will definitely chomp down on some waffles this weekend!
**Update: we tried this and it was pretty good, it was really hard to make waffles with it though. Like it was extra sticky or maybe our waffle iron is just too old lol!**

These tastes almost exactly like Chicharones, but are made of lentils… enough said. 

These will probably be DELICIOUS!! Can't wait to try them, waiting for the weekend!

Birchbox December 2013 Review! **UPDATED**

Got my December Birchbox this week! Yayy:) 
There were some pretty great products in it! More Argan oil stuff, some bath stuff made of salt from the Great Salt Lake, nail polish, etc. Check it outtt ;) I'm excited to give them a try (except that birchbox logo thing for your phone. I don't get it. why would I put that on my phone?)

Chuao Chocolatier Chocolate Bars:I have yet to try this delicious looking chocolate! It got lost in my huge purse somewhere, lol. Maybe I'll save it for during my flight in a couple days :)

Color Club® Cocktail Hour Collection:This is a nice neutral color, I'll probably give it away though. I'm not really into frost nail polishes.

Nelson j Beverly Hills Argan Oil 7 Non-Foaming Shampoo (the little bottle next to the thin white one):
I tried this shampoo last weekend before going to a wedding, and was a little nervous it wasn't going to wash my hair well enough. I'm not used to non-lathering shampoos… Well, it worked and it worked pretty well! I also didn't even need to use conditioner afterward! Also, my hair wasn't as flat as it normally would be in cold weather. Maybe it was just a good hair day? Ooor… Maybe it was the shampoo ;)

ARCONA Magic White Ice (the thin white tube):
I prefer thicker consistencies for face lotions. This one was pretty thin, like watery. It was nice though, did the job fairly well. Maybe not as hydrating as I would like either. I imagine this would be a really good face lotion for people with oily skin. Maybe good for me in the summer ;). I'll save it for when it heats up even more here in a couple months.

I'm excited to try out the bath salt and body lotion. They gave really good sized samples for those, I even considered giving them as gifts lol!

I'll update this post with details by tomorrow hopefully!

Well, I've had more exciting Birchboxes, but this one was pretty good! I'd like to get more makeup items, like the Chella Highlighter that was in the November Birchbox! I still use that every day! :)

I didn't add up the value of this box, but if you're curious to know, just post a comment and I'll add it all up for you ;)

What did you get in your Birchbox?
