What’s on my Christmas Wish-List?

Christmas-wishlist-headerFor the past number of years I didn’t have a Christmas wish-list. But now that money is tight, I haven’t been shopping as frequently as I usually would. I could say that’s a blessing in disguise, wouldn’t you? Having said that, I have been lusting after a number of things this year and this is what’s really on my Christmas wish list! Christmas-Wishlist-spiffy

  1. Lululemon Wunder Under Roll Down (cotton only!): I have been wearing my green Lululemon Wunder Under cotton roll down’s since I bought them as a birthday gift to myself back in May. I’d love another pair in either Black or Earth.
  2. Elizabeth Grant Moisturizing Stick: I keep this by my bedside and apply that or Dior Crème de Rose at night. I have a nubbin’ left of my Elizabeth Grant, which I received in a beauty subscription box a few years ago. It is so buttery smooth!
  3. Victoria’s Secret bras: I’m in need of some. I bought a few from their Pink line, and also from Target, but they don’t hold up as well as their regular line of bras. The one’s I purchased while at West Edmonton Mall in 2009/2010 still look brand new!
  4. Starbucks gift card: While I do like to explore and find hidden gems of coffee shops, I can’t help but enjoy a peppermint white mocha every now and then.
  5. King sized bed (img source): For the past 9 years, The Guy and I have been sleeping on a double sized bed. It’s time to upgrade! This will happen eventually, probably not until well after Christmas.
  6. Jo Malone perfume: Each time I pop into Nordstrom, I get a sample of Nectarine Blossom & Honey or Peony & Blush Suede. Both are beautiful on the skin and last the entire day. Unheard of!
  7. Nike sneakers: I have had my hot pink nike’s since 2010, and while they’re pretty fantastic, the soles are not the same as they used to be. I have a few other pairs of running shoes, but Nike’s will always be my favourite.

April GlossyBox

So is GlossyBox’s new motto: Good things come to those who wait?

Everyone has been itching, and sitting impatiently, waiting for their April GlossyBox to come in the mail. It finally arrived on the very last day of the month.

One thing that bothers me about beauty subscription boxes, is that there never is a set date as to when they get mailed out. If you ask them on their Facebook fan page, or on twitter, the companies come back with a vague answer. In this case, GlossyBox said their boxes will be mailed out during the month of April. Well, jeeze I sure hope so. Since it is a monthly box. Sure enough, it arrived.

Let’s take a peak inside shall we?

April GlossyBox

I knew this box was heavy when I recieved it in the mail! Look at all that stuff.

Can you spot the three full sized products? Boom. Nice job GlossyBox.

A closer look at April’s GlossyBox. Remember, GlossyBox costs $15/month + free shipping, and look at all the goodies we have, add up those prices for yourself. The box more than pays for itself with this:

Skin Care Shower Gel by Elizabeth Grant (Full size! Retails for $20.00)
Aveeno Positively Radient Daily Moisturizer (Full size! Retails for $22.99)
Marcelle Xtension Plus Mascara (Full size! Retails for $12.50)
Wella Brilliance Conditioner (Sample size)
Wella Brilliance Treatment (Sample size)

Don’t forget our black little envelope. Inside?

Another sample!

This is Marcelle’s BB Cream. Check out my review on Marcelle BB cream, I own and still use this product.

Value wise, this is the best bang for my buck for being my third GlossyBox that I’ve ever received. Third time’s a charm, right? Either that, or three strikes and you’re out. But no, I will continue to subscribe to GlossyBox as I am pleased with what I have received this month.

I purchased this box myself with my GlossyDot points!
