XXI wrap bracelet

I found the cutest wrap bracelet at Forever 21 the other day for $7.50!! I was super excited because I had been looking for a black one. However being that its from Forever21 it did start to unravel after a few wears so I got some black sewing thread and retreaded all the beads as a reinforcement.

Unusual Rose and Red Carpet Mani

I recently bought the Red Carpet Manicure set from ULTA to do gel nails. I ordered the color Paparazzi and the Pro LED light but was disappointed when I received the cheap travel lamp. They even had the nerve to charge me the $39.99 (Pro light price) for the travel light that costs $19.99. Costumer service  said they probably sold out.. so my question to ULTA is why..WHY would you mail a customer an item that's half the quality and half the price when the original item sold out??!!But charge the full amount of the original items!!!????

So I attempted my RCM and the light just doesn't cut it with curing, after an average of 3 mins a layer I still ended with peeling.. My mani lasted about 3 days. I will give it a try when the Pro (36watt) light comes out and may just end up returning everything.

DH ended up surprising me with roses that matched my mani and I noticed that one of the roses looks to have 3 buds in the center! How cool is that!

Birch Box September

So I signed up back in Aug for the September Birch Box, I heard all the hype and excitement about them and knew that Septembers box was going to be special since it was their 1 year anniversary box. I received it yesterday and just cancelled my subscription! Boy was it a waste of the $10 monthly fee.
I recieved
Blinc Mascara 
Harvey Prince perfume vial of Girly
Incoco Nail strips Jouer Lip enhancer
Lash Card
Birchbox friendship bracelet
The sizes are super tiny, think about the size of a quarter... and the bracelet is a joke, it unraveled after 10 mins of wearing.  You can find much better samples for free at Sephora or Ulta.
