I know I say it every month, but June flew by! It is hot as hell in Texas, so I have been working overtime on the inside of my home (I showed a little of my progress here).
Schmidt turned 4 years old this month, and I still cannot get over it. I have been with that little fart for over 4 years! WHAT!
I have also been working out more than I have in a long time thanks to my Fitbit! Look for a post about that experience coming soon!
Plus, I cut my hair off, and it is so much easier to do my hair everyday! I have made a lot of strides in my house this month as well, like removing wallpaper, getting new furniture, redoing closets and redoing bathrooms.
Here are some highlights from my month before we get into what came into my mailbox:
As for my mail this month, you can see a lot of what I purchased for my home. I kinda went a little crazy!
The kit comes with the PurePressed Base Mineral Foundation – an all-in-one foundation, concealer, broad spectrum (UVA/UVB) sun protection, PurePressed blush, PurePressed eye shadow and Just Kissed Lip and Cheek Stain.
The packaging in this is amazing! The box came with a piece of lavender, which is just the touch I love from an company. Plus, the brush that comes with the kit folds open to a full brush.
The foundation is great for the summer months because it is super light and goes on very smooth. All of the powders have a great finish, and I really love the blush. I am really excited to use it in the summer.
The brown eyeshadow looks loverly faded out from the lid, and the lighter eyeshadow has a lot more shimmer than it looks! It really makes the eyes pop.
As for the lip and cheek stain, it is light but adds a great amount of color for summer!
I was so excited to get the St. Tropez gradual tan in my Ipsy bag this month! I can’t wait to try it out!
SimpleHuman Trash Can
In the last year, Schmidt has came up with this nasty habit of eating through the trash. This has never been a problem until we moved to Waco last year.
We have always had the trash out because I have never lived a place where I could put the trash away into a closet or pantry. He had never tried to go through it.
But then we moved to Waco, and that changed.
I plan on doing a review very soon, but for now, I’ll just say this trash can has a lock, and it is doing it’s job very well!
RENPHO Weight Scale
When I bought the trash can, I decided I wanted to get a better scale to motivate me to lose weight.
This scale connects to your phone and your Fitbit. It monitors your body fat, muscle mass, water and much, much more! I weigh myself every morning to log it into my Fitbit!
I chose the travel item for this month’s box, so I received a luggage tag and passport cover! I hope this inspires me to travel soon!
Envogue Amaryllis Floral Print Window Curtain Panels
I have been wanting to buy curtains for the window in my living room forever. When I was searching, I knew I wanted a pop of color, but I didn’t want anything I would get tired of easily.
Eventually, I went with these from TJ Maxx (here’s a link to a similar pair).
I really love what it has done to the corner of my living room!
Elton Media Console
Along with my curtains, I finally got the media stand I have been eyeing for quite a while! It is a little shorter than I expected, but I cant wait to fix this up like I want to!
HASK Argan Dry Shampoo
Just as I was running out of dry shampoo, I was sent this one from HASK sponsored through BrandBacker.
HASK has a new line of dry shampoos that focus on key issues, and they can be found at Ulta.
I wanted to try out the volumizing dry shampoo because I always need texture that lifts my new short hair. I am in love! It adds the volume I need to clean hair, and it refreshes and re-volumizes day old hair.
Plus, I love the scent! #Sponsored
PLUS: Bought some things from Big Lots!
I didn’t get these in my mailbox, but I got some great deals at Big Lots!
I got this clock for $5, this sign for $9 and this hook for $10!
Have you gotten anything cool in your mailbox lately?
