My first Glossybox!

I finally got my first glossybox today! I was super excited. And it was amazing! I got some really good products. My picture quality isn't really the best, but that's all I can do right now. The lighting in my house is awful for taking pictures.

Aveeno Daily Moisturizing Lotion
I was so excited about this. I am insane about my hand lotion. I have lotion on my dresser, on my desk, on my night table, in my purse, in my book bag for school.... I can't be without it. And this particular lotion is my absolute favourite! I usually get the little travel sized ones, but this one is 354 ml. It retails for $11.99.

Evian Brumisateur Facial Spray
I haven't tried this one yet, but I have been wanting to for a while! I'm sure it will come in handy if we ever get any warm weather in Newfoundland. This retails for $7.00.

Sebastian Re-Shaper Hairspray
I don't use hairspray too often, but I do always have a travel size one in my bag. It's weird, I know. But you never know when you may need it, right?! Ha ha. Retails for $19.95.

Pandora's Blush St. Tropez
This is the cutest package I have ever seen a blush come in! I absolutely love it. And it's a lovely colour. But even if it wasn't, I would probably buy it for the cute packaging! Ha ha. Retails for $18.00.

Bailey Cosmetics Lip Gloss
I tried this earlier, and it's so pretty! And it makes my lips feel nice too. Just like hand lotion, I'm addicted to lip glosses. I hate ones that are sticky and gross. This one doesn't seem like that at all! Love! Retails for $28.00.

Algemarin Foam Bath
Retails for $3.99-$23.95 depending on size. I don't have a bath tub :(. I only have a stand up shower in my small apartment. I'll probably give this to my mother. Or maybe I'll take over my mother's bathroom one day and get a bath and try it out there! I miss baths.

And that's all for the Glossy Box!

I was going to make a post about the Hunger Games, but I figured there are probably ten million out there! Ha ha. I may post some time later in the weekend about how disappointed I was in the movie, but I'm not sure. I have mixed feelings. Part of me liked it and part of me was disappointed. I think I need to watch it again with less expectations and see how I feel. I'll stop talking about it now, ha ha.

Unbearable Lightness by Portia De Rossi

I have been terribly, terribly busy lately. I haven't even been able to clean up my own house! When I do get free time, I'm too exhausted to do anything. But I guess that just comes with starting school! Which I have been loving, by the way.
I bought Unbearable Lightness by Portia De Rossi on my Kobo App on my iPod one day during a break in school when I was alone and bored. I must say, it was money well spent. I think I may buy a hard copy of it.
It was funny and heart wrenching at the same time. I cried multiple times during it. Just thinking about the things she went through and how it must have felt, I couldn't even imagine. I could almost relate to it, but not to the extent she went through. Not only did she go through hell with her eating disorder, but the hell she went through with her own sexuality was awful too. There were some pictures of her at 82 pounds somewhere towards the end, so sad. I recommend it to everybody. Every teenage girl (or boy) who might be struggling with self image or their sexuality. It's a real eye opener.
I've now started reading the Hunger Games Trilogy. I flew threw the first one within 3 days and now I'm part way through the second one. I can't get enough of it. I read it every single chance I get, which is really simple since I got that app on my iPod and my iPod is with me everywhere I go!
I just ordered a Glossy Box too. I was so disappointed when Luxe Box stopped accepting the only form of payment I had, but Glossy Box takes Paypal which is lovely! Can't wait to check it out.
And last but not least, I started using Proactiv just this morning. Praying that it works. My skin has been out of control for the past few months and I can't get it to calm down. It already feels better, but that could just be in my head!
