July Wake The Dead Monthly Box

0

So let’s talk about the fact that I go months in between posts. Good thing I’m not trying to be a professional blogger, right? Because I would fail. I’ve been busy. I’m starting a new indie nail polish brand (stay tuned for that), I moved in July, and I’ve been working graveyard shifts. So life has been busy. Since I was moving when I got this box, the lighting of my photos is a bit… off. But I wanted to take pics and post them before it was another six months.

Super Extremely Late Christmas Haul Post!

0

I’m slow. I know I’m so very slow and late to post lately. There’s about a thousand excuses I could give. It’s March 23rd as I type this (who knows when the post will actually go up), and it’s about three months since Christmas. But I also really wanted to share the stuff I got for Christmas. However, between losing family members, work, personal time, and dealing with some extreme chronic depression, it kind of fell by the wayside. So with those excuses, check out some cool stuff about three months late.

January 2017 Ipsy Bag

0

Alright, let’s start this off a little different. This is my last Ipsy that I will be receiving. There will be no more resubscribing. I’ve decided to cut ties with this subscription bag. For starters, they would not stop sending stuff from The Balm. I was tired of it. I never used it and almost always tried to destash it. Aside from that, I don’t like the way they provided customer service to my BFFF. She received a tracking notification early in the month (I believe around the 6th). From then, it never updated. She contacted Ipsy not long after that. They assured her that it was on the way (not sure how they could tell when the tracking was not updating at all). Finally after over 20 days, she asked them for a refund. They told her that they do not issue refunds but they would send her another bag, that they would send another tracking code, and it would leave their warehouse in 5-7 days. Wait, what? Stop the truck. 5-7 days to send the replacement bag from their warehouse? So she would get her bag in February, and not be able to review the products to be able to get a better curated February bag. She cancelled, and I have cancelled in solidarity. I think that is a bit ridiculous and it should not have taken so long to resend a new bag when clearly the tracking was not updating on DHL and the tracking number was no good for USPS.

Aside from that, my bag this month was alright. I’ll use the products. I just have such a sour taste in my mouth that I’ll go with a different subscription service instead, like Boxycharm possibly. Either way, I’m done with Ipsy. Check out my bag below though.

December Ipsy Bag: One Month Late

0

So this is a month late, but I think we can all understand that December gets a little bit crazy sometimes with the holidays so it wasn’t at the top of my priority list around that time. I got the December Ipsy bag and was mostly satisfied with the things that I received. The bag is horrid and fuzzy and bright pink, but it’s a makeup bag so I’ll take it. I can’t say it won’t just sit there though. Overall, not a bad bag. Check it out below the cut.

November 2016 Ipsy Bag

This is my fourth Ipsy bag since resubscribing for the third time… Generally speaking, I am not disappointed and this month was no different. Overall, I was pretty satisfied with this bag. Each month you pay $10 for a curated bag that has 5 items, usually sample sizes but occasionally full size. I think that the price of the bag is pretty great especially since the value usually exceeds the cost. It’s an awesome little surprise to see this pink mailer in my mailbox every month! Click through to see what I got this month.

Denver Zombie Crawl 2016

0

Warning: You might not want to look at this post if you aren’t ready for lots of fake wounds and tons of fake blood. You’ve been warned.

Zombie Crawl is an annual event that happens in downtown Denver where people can dress up as zombies and walk down our outdoor downtown mall. Usually there are some pretty great costumes and LOTS OF BLOOD. My bestie and I try to go to Zombie Crawl whenever we can because we love to dress up in costume makeup and create costumes. We usually do a theme each year. So far we have dressed up as zombies for five different years. Pretty sure we get better every year and this year we looked pretty badass, if I do say so myself. Let’s recap all of our looks over the past few years though.
