It's Saturday!

I'm being lazy today.

My Birchbox Limited Edition Modern Mermaid box is on its way to me right now!  I should have it Tuesday!  I also got a Mystery Pick Two with it so there's a little surprise even though I know the contents of the Mermaid box.  I used my points and the welcomeoffer20 code to get it.

My Glossybox Bergdorf Goodman gift certificates were put to good use as well.  Those orders are on their way!  I was slightly sneaky and I ordered in two segments.  This way I got to add more free gifts.  I think there's something wrong with  me!

I used the Origins Charcoal Mask that I purchased earlier.  Wow!  That is a fabulous mask!  I've never used a charcoal one before and I am hooked!  My skin looked so good.  Glowing and without a hint of shine.

Memebox sucked me back in for another round.  They restocked their global Memeboxes #12 and #13 as well as ALL their Luckyboxes.  I was going to get #12 AND #13 but decided only to get #13 which ships at the end of July.  Memebox #12 ships in June (this month!) and I already have a lot of boxes coming so I don't need another one.

In_the_boxI got my mom a birthday present.  She's going to love it.  I know she is because I love it, too!  Of course it's a subscription box!  I got her a 3 month subscription to Love With Food!  I can spill the beans here because by the time she reads this she probably will have already gotten the shipping email.  It would be super cool if it arrived on her birthday but I don't think it will take that long and she'll get it early.

I cut back on my boxes this month.  I actually did NOT get the Blush Mystery Box.  It was a fantastic deal this month but I am not a hair product kind of girl so I skipped it.  Instead I got the Birchbox Modern Mermaid box which I mentioned earlier. There's a great NYX palette in the box this month though...
But three items are for hair so I passed.

I'm really glad that Escape Monthly decided to make a Mini.  Their price point is just too high for a lot of people.  I did ask them about it and they said the Mini won't have the guidebook and would likely have 3 less items in it.  They want to keep the value between $35 and $50.  In my mind, $35 is cutting it close but we will see how it pans out.  I'm going to get one just to see.

I signed up for Bugsy's Box with the super awesome code FIRST9!  I'm getting my first box for only $9 and that is a deal!  I had to get it sooner or later because that's Bugsy's name!  Sign up here if you are interested.
I think I'm going to do a comparison post this month between Barkbox and Bugsy's Box. That'll be fun!

My first daylily bloomed.  Siloam Plum Tree.  It's the most boring one I have so I didn't take a picture.  They were here when I moved in. However, my newer daylilies were planted last year and half of them I have never seen bloom before!!  If that girl comes over and rips off my daylilies, Doomsday will fall upon her household! Haha!
They aren't called daylilies for no reason.  They only bloom for one day and if she snatches one...  The one in this picture is a double (two sets of petals) called "Music of the Master."  It's one of my favorites and its my only double.

I've learned so much thanks to my friend Marjolein!  She showed me all the blogging secrets!  Thanks, lady! I'm working on making my blog a little more streamlined.  I like things to be crisp and clean with no foo-foo bits.  This is all completely new to me so I'm learning as I go.  It's a lot of fun!

One last thing,  I would love it if you followed me on Bloglovin'!  It makes me happy that I'm not blogging to a nebulous void and seeing that I have followers makes me smile!  I haven't learned how to put it in a post so you'll have to use the tab on the right side bar.  Thanks in advance for the follow! ------->


  1. What did you order from bergdorfs? Im having a hard time picking something to get with my certificate!

    1. You can also use your gift certificates at Neiman Marcus which I only found out AFTER I bought all my things at Bergdorf. NM has really good beauty sales right now and don't forget to look at their gift with purchase section! I got some Jo Malone perfume, some Laura Mercier hand cream and a Clinique lipstick and nail polish (plus a bunch of free gifts with purchase- nothing too glorious but all useful) but the deals at NM were WAY better and I was so sad I didn't know about how the gift certificate could be used both places!

    2. Thanks for the heads up! :)

    3. I ended up getting the Kiehl's Midnight Recovery Serum after hearing a lot about it! Excited to try it!

  2. Ooh how lucky I feel! I came to comment and let you know that you weren't blogging to the void there are just lots of quiet readers like me. When I came across Sarah H's comment! I was also couldn't find anything I wanted to get with my gift card, but I just went and picked up lots of goodies at Neiman Marcus and got their promotional tote with samples too! Hooray for Bits and Boxes!!

    1. Yay! Thank you! Sarah H. is me! I mean, I'm Sarah and I'm Bits and Boxes, too :) I don't know how to make it say Bits and Boxes instead of Sarah so I think I confuse people a lot. I'm so glad that you found things you wanted at Neiman Marcus! I wanted that tote so MUCH but I had already spent my GCs!! I'm so glad you were able to get it, though, and I'm happy to know I helped! Thank you for your comment, too! <3
