the haven

in a quaint little town, ten minutes away, there's a sweet little shop filled with pretty lovelies. this little town has always been my favorite. one that friends and family are familiar with. although it's not too far away, i don't go as often as i'd like. there are always new things to take in and enjoy.

Months ago I started watching beauty videos on youtube in my spare time. I kept hearing about a company called Ipsy but didn't know much about it until I talked to a friend. Many beauty "youtubers" are subscribed to Ipsy, and I watched their videos but still had questions. For those of you who don't know what Ipsy is, it's a monthly makeup subscription website . Every month they'll send you 4 to 5 beauty products along with a makeup bag. Some products will be trial size and others will be the full product. When I first heard this, I wasn't too sure if it would be worth it, but I decided to give it a go, and am so happy I did.

Each month you pay $10 and it arrives in a pink padded envelope..totally me. ;) My first bag arrived in April and I was so excited to find it waiting in the mailbox. I wasn't too impressed with the products inside but had heard Ipsy will have a few really good months and then one month the products will be okay. Some people will like the products one month because it's more "them" and other people will like products the next month that maybe the others won't like. But for $10 you get to try products you might not be familiar with.

July's Bag came on Monday and I was super excited. Summer themed! Though I would say I'm about ready for summer to be over (this 93 degree weather really makes it hard to not miss winter). Anyways, every month I see sneak previews of pictures and I could tell this month was going to be good. :)
