A couple of weeks ago, Birchbox, the monthly beauty box with the amazing points program,* hosted an event for their Birchbloggers at the Cynthia Rowley boutique. On display and for play was the Cynthia Rowley Spring Beauty Line. And I was one of the lucky few who won the entire collection to review.
(*In case you’re not familiar with it, Birchbox is a monthly subscription service where, for just $10 a month, you receive a box full of deluxe-sized and travel-sized samples. You receive Birchbox points for every purchase you make and every review your write, which can be redeemed in their store. For every 100 points you earn, you get $10 a full-sized product order. Get your own here.)
The road to the store looks like wonderland…
I’m not feeling great and can’t muster up the energy for a post, so instead I’m sharing some nighttime photos I took walking to the train of the NY skyline. The only thing I miss about that commute.
It will surprise no one that I like to shop. Or that I like to travel. Or that I like to shop while I’m traveling. Since I’m heading off to France (I know, again) in a week and a half, I thought I would write up a guide with everything I’ve learned about shopping overseas.

Here is this week’s question:
What is your biggest pet peeve when it comes to blogs (of any kind)?
For me, my absolute biggest pet peeve is when the blogging system doesn’t notify you of replies to comments. It just drives me nuts when you can see the blogger clearly invested in a nice theme, nice design elements, is quite successful, yet if you want to know if they’ve replied to you, you must go and constantly check the entry. Grrrrrrr.
How about you?
I am honored and touched to have been nominated for the Liebster Award twice within a week or so, first by Anna of Beauty by Shortylegs and then by Dea of Her Deauty.
The Liebster Award is a way of giving accolades to blogs with 200 or less followers. Basically, most of us who work hard at our blogs and aren’t famous for it.
I’ve been so busy, that I haven’t had time to answer the questions until now, but here we go!
