“Summer is not the time to hold back. It’s the season of wearing brights on brights on brights, driving with the windows down, and eating popsicles for breakfast.”
Dude I totally eat popsicles for breakfast and ice cream for dinner, I just do it all year round. I love summer right now everything is so fresh and light. The farmers markets are brimming with bounty from the fields, road trips with the boyfriend, and running though the sprinkler with Sophia. Not to mention my nephew Jack arrived this month, he is a cute little peanut and I cannot wait to spoil him rotten.
Here in Minnesota we are going through a heat wave, one so hot it just melts your makeup right off. I have been pairing down my routine to just a tinted moisturizer and gloss, it holds up well to the heat monster. My curly hair is another story, frizz and buns are my BFFs right now. I am waiting for cooler less humid days and stary nights. We still have a lot of summer left in MN, so I am trying to soak up every last drop, AJ ain’t got time for fancy beauty routines and Birchbox totally got my vibe this month.
“So Lady, what did you get in your BirchBox this Month? Was it BOLD!?”
Cartier Baiser Vole perfume: from a brand that knows elegance, a romantic floral scent with notes of fresh powdered lily.
————————> I didn’t know powdered lilies existed. I actually like this scent it is very fresh and simple, clean yet romantic. You definitely will not see me shelling out for the full-sized product, $106 is above my uptown hipster girl budget.
Davines Minu Shampoo: richly foaming wash that gently cleanses hair and safeguards color.

Davines Minu Conditioner and Davines Minu hair serum,
———————–> if you are a regular, then you know that I love the Davines brand! I am a total fan girl, all of their products smell like heaven and clean like a dream. Its an Italian brand and it is a little bit on the higher end of the beauty budget, but it is totally worth the price. The Minu shampoo & conditioner smell so good, I love how it left my hair feeling soft and smooth.
Jouer Matte Moisture Tint: oil-free SPF formula that controls shine and leaves a soft, velvety finish.
——————–> Finally something in a shade I can wear. This is a great little moisturizer, I love that it has SPF in it, that’s one less product to smear on my face, which is a time saver. I just wish the sample was a little bigger.
stila look at me liquid lipstick in Venizia: this creamy formula glides on like a gloss yet lasts like a stain.
——————> This was the July sample choice item, we could choose from three stains. I have fond memories of my time in Venizia, so it was a no brainer to me. The color is very bright for my pasty pale skin.
Supergoop Anti-aging city sunscreen serum SPF 30: this anti aging serum blocks UV rays while hydrating skin and preventing future damage.
——————–> I always see ladies complaining about receiving Supergoop in their boxes. I have been a subscriber since August 2013 and this is honestly my first Supergoop product, so there will be no complaints from me. I love the concept of a sunscreen specifically for our faces, science has proven that our face ages faster than the rest of our bodies, so why not have an ally in your corner. I will definitely be buying the full-sized product of this.
This was a really great box for me, I will use every product I received, well except for the lip stain.
