Viva La Juicy by Juicy Couture

Viva La Juicy by Juicy Couture
I absolutely love perfume, but only when it smells good. I have tried so many different fragrances in my life thus far and I have to tell you, there are only a few that I can honestly say that I love.
 
Viva La Juicy by Juicy Couture is one of those that I can honestly say that I love. The notes gravitate to me in a sense where I am lost into an oblivion. And yes, I mean that in the best way possible.

The Luna by FOREO

 
I am very excited to try the Luna by FOREO. The Luna is a revolutionary device that not only works to deep clean your skin, but improve the quality of your skin on an anti-aging level.
 
Available for $199 at FOREO or your nearest FOREO retailer, this device works for every skin type. The Luna I received is for Sensitive/Normal skin. I cannot wait to use it tonight. Review coming soon! 

Beauty Examiner: 5 Sunless Tanning Products Worth Trying

Vita Liberata makes amazing sunless tanning products.
As many of you are aware, I was accepted to write for Examiner.com a few months ago as a featured Beauty Examiner. As of right now, I am truly loving it. My first article I wrote was about sunless tanning products.
 
Fall is here and Winter is near. It is no longer Summer, so I think it's safe to say that not everyone has the time to make it to their nearest tanning salon to achieve and/or maintain a tan. Also, not everyone lives in a climate that is warm let alone hot.
 
One of the safest yet effective ways to achieve a tan is by using a sunless tanning product. When you have a minute, check out my article for Examiner '5 Sunless Tanning Products You Need To Check Out In 2014' where I narrow down the many sunless tanning products to my top 5 favorites.

Join Birchbox, Only $10 a Month

 As many of you are already aware of Birchbox.com, I will explain what this program is. It is simply a sample society of beauty products. You pay only $10 a month (or $110 for the entire year) for the women's box and $20 a month (or $195 yearly) for the men's box and as a result, you will receive a box filled with an array of samples. 

These samples range from full and deluxe sized samples of your favorite skin care or makeup product to your favorite shower gel or body lotion to shampoo/conditioner to even nail polish and more. Some of the other products I have received from this beauty subscription service even cater to lifestyle, as I have received samples of food from various brands including a full size bar of chocolate.
 
An example of what you receive in a monthly Birchbox subscription.
 
The subscription offers various products that are based on your personalized beauty profile and the best part is, you can cancel at any time. I have been a member of Birchbox for almost a year now and I love it, as it gives me the opportunity to try new products with the convenience of having them shipped right to my door.
 
I am a member of the women's box which is only $10 a month, however, my amazing boyfriend Joseph Valo III was a member of Birchbox Man (only $20 a month) for quite sometime before he canceled his subscription. Of course, Joe will be rejoining the program very very soon. Joe received an array of products that included facial serum, shaving cream, a pair of shorts, and even a jump rope.
 
Although one may have some negative things to say (or weaknesses, rather) I have a lot of strengths I can add about Birchbox, as I have been a member of this subscription service for almost a year now. Do I think it's worth it? Absolutely!
