I'm not sure how many of you have ever heard of Birchbox but it has to be one of my favorite things. Its like Christmas every month. You sign up and pay $10 every month and you get sent a box full of samples.

I love trying out new products and finding something new to love. The samples they send range from beauty products to chocolate to tea. Whats also great about sample sizes is that you can take them with you where ever you go because they are small. How many of you receive a birchbox in the mail?

a realization

I did a little research and found something really interesting. I know alot of people do those "get the look for less" things... So when I realized that my boots that I bought at target for $35 were almost identical to Madden girls Cactus boot that sells for $89.95 I had to share!

On the left is the Target boot - Madden Cactus boot on the right
The only difference here is that the Target boot doesn't have a stud by the top buckle.

The only difference here is that the Target boots strap goes over the zipper and the Madden boot does not.

bargain finds

I am a total shopaholic. Lets face it I am a female and we LOVE a good deal. I have been on the hunt for a new pair of boots for a while now. Recently I was at target and let me just say that they have a pretty nice boot selection. The boots that i bought just happen to be on sale today for 34.99... hurry up and get yours! Here are the boots I found:

Rise of the Jack-o-Lanterns

Last night I went to rise of the Jack-o-Lanters. It was so much fun! the detail these people put into the carving of these pumpkins is insane. Here are just a few photos of what I saw:

I always have a hard time deciding what to put kn my classroom door for halloween. I also hate doing the same thing twice and lets be honest pumpkins can get a little boring.  This year I went with a trick or treat bag and some candy. Here is the outcome:

Magical Hair Products.

I'm a total hair fanatic. I love to change my color and my cut all the time... and with whatever I choose for the month (haha... my hair really does change that often) ... I usually need new products. So I thought that I would do a post on some of my favorite hair products and why....

I don't know how many of you have ever tried the keratin express blowout treatment... but if you haven't then you should. I am in love with it. It lasts for about 6 weeks if you don't wash your hair everyday. I have naturally curly hair but 98% of the time I always wear it straight... the keratin express helps keep the frizz away in this gross humidity.... but of course there are special shampoo and conditioner that you have to use.... here are my favorites:

The next product I use is to protect my hair before I blow dry and flat iron.... it smells amazing and you can also use it on dry hair:

The nice thing about this product is that they make a few different types... they have one for blondes and highlights, one for thick to coarse color treated hair, and one for normal to fine hair. Truly my favorite hair product.

Summer read

I just finished reading "white girl problems" . Its a quick easy read that I find very funny and surprisingly relateable. Definitely the perfect beach read.
