[Don’t miss out on my Instagram Stories! Be sure to follow me on Instagram to see the most updated stories. Enjoy my IG Story blog. ]

April is the month of flowers and rain! Where spring showers bring beautiful flowers and tons of pollen that is bound to induce sinus infections, allergies, sneezing, and discomfort. But let’s not fret that it also means a new Ipsy glam bag!

This month’s glam bag brought a product I fell madly for! But before we go into what I loved, let’s list we I got!

WHAT I LOVED

Hands down this is by far my most favorite glam bag design ever. The sheer creative direction for spring and detail hit home for me. This is a bag I will not be using but just decorating my home with. (Yes, I do that sometimes!)

H2O’s Oasis Hydrating Treatment was my next favorite item in this month glam bag. I suffer from extremely dry skin and it gets worse after applying makeup. This treatment not only worked wonders as a stand along night treatment but also between my moisturizer and makeup. It’s infused with water-based ingredients like seagrass extract and water lily extract which helps condition and soften the skin. My skin literally slurped this right in! Talk about quenching a thirst! Giving this one a 10/10!

Bbellápierre Cosmetics answers the question can I have my setting powder and it gets rid of redness and dark circles too? A semi-transparent formula that looks Oh So Natural! It doesn’t cake or fuss and can be used very versatile! How I use this is as a loose setting powder under the eye and on the eyelid during the summer to keep my concealer from melting off my face. It also helps matt any liquid contour I have on. It does not cake or create those weird wrinkles on your face from your foundation, keeping everything in place! OH Darling, encore! 10/10!

Beau Gâchis Cosmetics are your best-kept secret for great brushes at affordable pricing. (They have a sale right now! Get any 5 brushes for $30!) What makes the tapered blending brush so good? The curved tip makes for great blending out eyeshadow perfectly with no mess. The brush can also double to dusting highlighter on your cheekbones or nose. Even as synthetic hair, it is fluffy for powder formulas and small enough for creams. Want that amazing smoky eye look? Get it with this brush! Si se puede, 10/10! 

WHAT I ….EH

It isn’t fair to say I didn’t love the other products I just didn’t need them as much. Personally, I did not use Symphony Beauty’s Purifect Micellar cleansing water because I am already in love with IT Cosmetics Miracle Water 3-in 1 cleanser. Purifect is a cheaper version of Miracle Water and absolutely does somewhat the same except two things. The Miracle Water from IT Cosmetics also has a skin-brightening radiance booster and a whole lot of anti-aging peptides that help nourish dry skin. Purifect does contain microscopic molecules called micelles that attach to dirt and grime on your face and yes it has coconut extract (everything has coconut now) that helps hydrate and smooth your skin in a no-rinse makeup removal formula but I want more in my cleanser! Don’t you?

Last but not least Ciate London Starstruck Double Ended Stamp liquid line just didn’t give me the Starstruck feeling I needed. I get I can make stars on my makeup, but who wants black stars? Maybe someone else, but I’d prefer colored stars! Now if the end was a stencil that’s thinking outside the box!

All in all, I’m quite pleased with my bag. Let me know your thoughts on my review and tell me what you received if you are also an Ipsy member! Want to receive your own Ipsy glam bag? Get one now by clicking for a referral!

Actually Have Breakfast At Tiffany’s Now at the Blue Box Cafe!

Who would have thought, many years later, that the famous Breakfast at TIffany’s movie starring my Queen Audrey Hepburn would ever come true? Well, hold your horses before you get too excited because The Blue Box Cafe is reservations only. And on top of that, you have to book a month in advance. It gets trickier, reservations are only open for a month from the date you are reserving. So you cannot book beyond May 2nd (Today’s April 2nd). In addition, parties can only reserve up to 4 people and everyone must be there at the top of their reservation of they forfeit there spot.

Never said it was easy to be like Hepburn. Be sure to check out The Blue Box Cafe and good luck getting a table. Just know if you do, it’ll be totally worth it!

The Most Instagram Place in NYC to Eat Brunch

Don’t let me tell you, just look at the pictures! Had lunch with the fabulous Juiicyxxr at While We Were Young in Manhattan and it was AMAZING! The place is quite small, so prepare to wait a bit for a seat, but it’s so worth it! From sassy cocktails to mouth-watering food, the decor is then just a bonus. Check them out for a Saturday or Sunday Brunch with the girls!

Thank You Timbuk2 for the Goodies and Congrats on The Relic Comic Book Launch!

Relic brings to life a tale of two brothers who develop supernatural powers after discovering an ancient family heirloom, which leads to a battle of good versus evil against a mysterious talisman. I got the chance to be a part of the launch party where Chris Walker, founder of Urbanime and creator of Relic, highly-anticipated, 45-page digital graphic novel, was released.

The release was sponsored by Timbuk2 with a limited edition bag resembling the character Bobby ‘s backpack in the series. Thanks to TImbuk2 for inviting me!
