Beauty in Jupiter (FL)

Last week I visited the beautiful city of Jupiter, FL. It is a little beach town of Florida’s Eastern coast.

Enjoy the pics!

I have been getting Birchbox for some time now and I LOVE it. The only thing is that I prefer natural products. If you are like me then you may want to check out this alternative. Go to http://goodebox.com/join-goodebox/. You can read all about it and sign up.

It is $16 per month, which is a bit more than Birchbox, but good natural products are always more expensive. One thing I really like is that they also have a bi-monthly option.

I haven’t tried this box yet, but I would love to hear from those that have. I heard about it and thought that I should share.

For those of you who haven’t heard of it already Birchbox is great!

Basically, for $10 per month Birchbox sends you a box each month full of sample-sized high end beauty products. I’m always excited when I get mine!

It’s great fun to try the various products out, and I have discovered some products that I really love. They will also send you an additional surprise type product. One time I got chocolate macaroons (which I didn’t care for), another time a cute nail file, and some great hair clips most recently.

The only con is that it is not as customizable as I’d like. When you sign up they do ask you what you like, what type of products you prefer, etc. But, you cannot opt out of a particular type of product. For example, I don’t like perfume and I never wear it. Also, they will send shades of lip gloss that I would never wear. When I get those, I just set them aside unopened. I pass these products on as gifts to friends who do like those colors, scents, etc.  One thing that is nice though about this system is that at times it pushes me beyond my comfort zone and I try things that I never would have pulled off the shelf. Sometimes this leads to a new love for a specific type of product.

Keratosis Pilaris vs Exfoliation Experiment (Post 2)


So, I have Keratosis Pilaris. (If you don’t know what that is check out my post “What is Keratosis Pilaris?”) Awhile ago I decided I was going to pitt my Lerosett and my Clinique Deep Comfort Body Butter against my Keratosis Pilaris, (KP) for short. After following my original plan for a few days, I got lazy….Sorry guys. So instead, I started doing the following:

Every other day, or so (this experiment hasn’t been done with scientific precision) I have been using a sugar scrub on my two arms and my right leg and then moisturizing with EOS . I have been using my normal routine on my left leg. Meaning – washing it and moisturizing it occasionally.

While the KP has not completely vanished I have noticed an improvement. My arms seem smoother and less red. I will be continuing this experiment and will post pictures soon.

If you have KP, let me know what you have done to try to improve it and whether or not it helped!
