Abundantly Blessed Giveaway!

image

I love, love, love shopping at local boutiques. There is just something about them that makes my shopping experience….umm…enjoyable.

Abundantly Blessed is that kind of store.  I was so impressed by their hospitality…even on Black Friday!   They had tons of people in and they had a long line but instead of rushing people in and out they were inviting their customers to be apart of a prayer chain. That’s pretty amazing to me.

I’ve recently become addicted to the leggings I bought on Black Friday! I was nervous to slide on the one size fits all leggings over my fluffy tail! One size fits all usually means one size fits small! However, when I put them on, they fit amazingly and the print didn’t stretch all crazy! (Haha…you know what I’m talking about ;)!)
They had an amazing sale on them so I bought a couple of pairs!

For December’s giveaway Abundantly Blessed graciously donated a pair of these cute leggings!  How great are they! There are 2 ways to enter to win.

1.) Comment on this blog post. (+1 entry)
2.) Post the picture below on instagram with the hashtag #iliftmyvoicegiveaway and follow and tag me @Mdozal. (+2 Entries)

I will close the contest and announce a winner on Christmas Eve! (U.S. only)

December 2013 Ipsy Glambag

image

There are two times every month that I get extremely excited, when I go get my eyebrows waxed and when I get my Ipsy Glambag in the mail!

Ipsy is a $10 monthly subscription. They send you a customized glambag based on the quiz you take. It is the best $10 I spend each month!

image

These are the things I got in my December bag:

image

Pop Bright Up Your Life Eye Shadow Trio – The full palette is for sale for $24. So this is roughly an $8 dollar value. I am not a big POP fan. There is so much fallout with their shadows. I may give this to my niece for Christmas.

image

Be A Bombshell – The One Stick – Retail value $16. I have really started to love Be A Bombshell! I got one of their lip crayons last month and use it constantly. Apparently, this is an all over stick but I couldn’t see any other use for it other than lipstick. It’s a pretty red color with a little bit of glitz.

image

NYX Extra Creamy Round Lipstick – Retail value $4. I love anything NYX! Everything I’ve tried from them is absolutely amazing and this lipstick is no exception! This shade of red is exquisite! This is my favorite from this months bag.

image

Andrea Strip Lash – Retail value $3.99. I’m horrible at putting on eyelashes. My lashes are pretty long so I don’t use them often. I’ll probably save these for a special occasion!

image

Starriy Nail Polish – Retail value $12. I wasn’t sure if I liked this polish but it is beginning to grow on me. I think it’ll be great for New Year’s Eve!

image

…and finally…The Beauty Blender. This item wasn’t part of my glambag but was a reward from Ipsy’s point system. I had 1000 points to redeem and decided to spend it on the popular Beauty Blender. A big thanks to all the people who subscribed to Ipsy under my account!

This month’s glambag was great; however, it doesn’t beat last month’s bag! If you want to give Ipsy a try you can subscribe here! I hope you all have a fantastic Friday and a safe weekend! – Moni<3

My Ipsy November Glam Bag

ipsy

It’s that time of the month ya’ll! (No, not that time of the month!) Most of you should be getting your Ipsy bag soon if you haven’t already, and if you are not a subscriber, you can subscribe to Ipsy here! I’m so thankful that my friend Priscilla shared this site with me! Ipsy is a sweet beauty subscription created by Michelle Phan that sends its members 5-6 beauty samples and full size products based on the quiz you answer. The best part??? It’s only 10 buck-a-roos a month. They charge your card on the 1st of every month and send out your glam bag around the middle of the month. It is completely worth it. I’ve received products from Urban Decay, Chella, Starlooks, Big Sexy Hair, Zoya, Michael Todd, Nourish Organic and plenty more. BE AWARE: There is usually about a month waiting list so sign up as soon as you can! This is what I got this month:

Em Michele Phan Lip Gallery Creamy Color Lipstick in the color Showstopper, Be a Bombshell Lip Crayon in the color Hot Damn, Nailtini Straight Up Color Nail Lacquer in the color Champagne, Pixi Bronzer in the color Subtly Suntouched, Starlooks Gem Eye Pencil in the color Topaz, BH Cosmetics Galaxy Chic Baked Eye Shadow in the color Aphrodite and of course this gorgeous glam bag!

I was pretty excited to get 6 products this month! I had heard they sent 6 products but I had always only received 5.  Yay for an early Christmas!! 🙂 I linked each item to its original site so you can see the regular price of each item.

Here are some photos and swatches:

This months Ipsy bag retailed at $75.50! I paid $10 for all of it! If you haven’t subscribed to your monthly Ipsy bag yet, you definitely should! It is so worth it!
