Subscription Addiction


Good Friday Eve. I’m so ready for this weekend, Little Holly is coming to town and I just miiiiiiight have plans to get her drunk and tattoo #flexbreak on her bicep. She’s a fun drunk so either way it should be a good time. Oliver and Twilight Sparkle are leaving for 10 days to visit his family, I’ve never been away from her that long and I’m not looking forward to it, two days is fine, 10 is too much. I guess I’ll have to come up with a project….. {coughpurplebathroomcough}


There are a few things I wanted to share with y’all:



First is Pound the Pavement for Parenthood, they are a nonprofit organization that helps sponsored couples raise money for infertility treatments. Oliver and I were blessed with great insurance which covered all my meds and treatments, others are not  so lucky. Some of these treatments can cost thousands of dollars EACH MONTH, just for a CHANCE to have a baby. Right now they are holding races in Colorado and Arizona, but are hoping to expand to Texas very soon. If you are someone who is struggling with this and need support please contact them!

Some of you may know Samantha from Simply Sami, her sister Maggie died tragically in a car accident in March of 2012 and Sami has put together a virtual run to help raise money for a foundation started in honor of her art loving beautiful sister.



“I started Running for Maggie as a way to raise money for the Maggie Bertram Foundation for the Fine Arts. Running has helped me not only become more active, but has helped me cope. Maggie died in March of 2012 in a tragic car accident. Her smile, vibrant personality, ability to make you laugh at anything, how she loved, the bear hugs and how she cared are missed by more than just her family. She was a talented dancer, artist and musician. Running is more to me than just losing a few pounds, it is my way to remember Maggie and keep her memory alive.”

I can’t think of a more appropriate way to honor a loved one, so if you would like to donate or run please contact Sami at sciaccio3@gmail.com


My Ipsy bag for July came, my favorite part is all these tiny cute bags they send! I use them for all kinds of things, like carrying my jewelry in my gym bag, or my lipsticks in my car so if they melt it doesn’t get on anything.


BH California Collection Eye// They looked really bright in the palette, but went on subtle.
POP Beauty Pouty Crayon// Loved! The color was bright, but the texture was amazing I want to try some other colors!
COOLA Mineral Face// SPF 20 tinted moisturizer, eh it was very sticky not a fan. I would like something light for the weekends when I don’t put on makeup.
Sexy Hair Beach Spray// I used it wet to give me some texture and it was just ok. If you scrunch you would probably like it better than on my stick straight hairs.
Derma E// This scrub was amazing, love the texture and the smell! I feel like I’m pampering myself when I use a face product with a nice scent.

Do you know there are TONS of subscription boxes out there? I’ve only used this one and Birchbox {not my fav}, but I’m wondering if any of you have tried one that you enjoy?

I’m thinking about the Bauble Bar Box, The Wantable Box, and The Wonder Box for Twilight Sparkle. I could go broke on these; they are just like a fun surprise in the mail each month!

I'll leave you with my outfit of the day, legal pj's for work :) I have a slight obsession lately with Marshalls.....



Love,
PregMeg

  2. "Legal PJs for work" is the best phrase ever. I wore a cotton maxi dress last Friday and received so many compliments that I am considering making the attempt during the week. Because seriously. PJs. For work. Legally.

  4. I'm all about little breaks from the kiddos, but 10 days without Madison is horrible. I feel for you. Poor thing....on the bright side you can rest up in the evenings.

  6. You may really like Nature's Box. It sends 5 natural healthy bags of snacks. Bags are full size and great for 1-2 people. You can decide on sizes they send.

  7. Thanks for the race information! I currently subscribe to Birchbox. I have been thinking about getting an ipsy subscription as well, but I can't make up my mind. The bags sound like a nice bonus, but to me some of the stuff items seem a little out there for my style. Although, I really like what you got this month!

  13. Thanks for sharing Pound the Pavement's webpage Megan!Hopefully this will reach someone who needs help! If anyone in Utah reads this there are two races coming up... one in Orem (August 3rd) and one in St. George (September 14th) that you can participate in. At the end of each race we are holding a raffle for a couple to have the chance to win one FREE IVF CYCLE with Utah Fertility Center or 2 chances for 50% off a cyle with Reproductive Care Center. If you don't live in UT but have family or friends that do they can enter your name for you as long as they are there at the race. It's a huge deal so if you or anyone you know is struggling with infertility share this with them. It is an opportunity they won't want to miss. :)

  16. They also make boxes for expecting moms! Kate from The Small Things blog shared some a few weeks ago. http://www.thesmallthingsblog.com/2013/07/my-first-bluum-box.html?utm_source=feedburner&utm_medium=feed&utm_campaign=Feed%3A+blogspot%2FGqCLV+%28The+Small+Things+Blog%29 Saw the pic on Instagram, hooray for a heartbeat! Congrats again!

  17. I got my first Ipsy box this month. I wanted to try it bc it seemed more makeup related than my Birchbox, and makeup is what I interests me. I loved the pop crayon formula but the color they sent is way too bright for me. I will prolly continue to get both. They are like someone sends you a little present each month :P

  18. I loved my Ipsy bag this month! The scrub is amazing, but the lipstick was way too bright for me. I have been eyeballing Nature Box for a while now, I may have to take the plunge and subscribe. Healthy snacks? Yes, please!
    Your outfit is adorable and so are your glasses. I love the maxi skirt.

  19. I subscribe to "it's organic 2 u" every other week for $35 I get a box of about 16lbs or organic locally grown fruits and vegetables. They go all over DFW

  20. If you enjoy the beauty boxes - My absolute favorite is Glossybox! It's $21 a month (so more expensive than Ipsy or Birchbox) but I've never once been disappointed in any of my boxes from them and they always have at least 1 or 2 full size products :) Plus all the stuff comes in super sturdy pink boxes that are good for storing stuff in haha.
