It’s hard to believe that it’s already the end of November and I’ll be heading up to New England soon to see my family and friends for the holidays! I can’t wait! I’ve been in money-saving mode so I haven’t been buying a lot of new products lately, but I’ve been lucky enough to win some great products or find some new favorites in my subscription boxes.

This is my second month getting Bright Cellars and I’m very happy with it! Your subscription is supposed to process each month on the day that you originally signed up, but my wine concierge Maria was super helpful this month and processed it early so that I’d have it in time for Thanksgiving! How sweet is that?!

First off, let me just start by saying that I love this month’s theme – giving – and I am super happy that Birchbox has partnered up with (RED) to raise money and awareness for the fight against AIDS. Make sure you’re sharing a picture of the facts on your Birchbox and tagging it #shaRED! Birchbox will donate $1 to (RED) for each time this is done and it’s an incredibly deserving cause! Okay, now let’s get into the goodies…  Continue reading

I’m pretty excited about this month’s Ipsy glam bag! The theme for November is “Girl Meets Glitter” and when I saw the bag, I was a little worried because, as we all know, glitter has a tendency to get EVERYWHERE. So I was super relieved that the bag isn’t coated in loose glitter and it’s actually really cute. Phew! Check out what I got…  Continue reading

Review | November ’14 Send Me Gluten Free Box

IMG_0285

A few months ago, I decided to do a little test and cut gluten out of my diet for a couple of weeks. After 3 whole weeks without it, I felt that it didn’t make a big enough difference for me to make a permanent transition (for now, at least). However, in that time, I entered a few gluten-free contests and ended up winning this Send Me Gluten Free box! We all know how much I love subscription boxes, so I was very excited to give it a try!
