Regarding LITTLE BLACK BAG:

 

Just sayin', as a Betsey Johnson devotee, the items from her are being listed at full retail, even though they are currently at half-price on her website and are available below "retail" at several online sellers. Now, obviously, pricing isn't a big deal, since you also get other stuff, but....figured I'd point it out.

 

The specific example I noticed was the ROSE ABOVE wristlet, which is currently $34 on Betsey's site. Again, my point isn't pricing--but do not think that these are current designs! The ROSE ABOVE collection has been available AT LEAST since 2008. Sure, they're still cute, and that may not be an issue for ya, but just be aware, that's all :)

I hope that they are--they couldn't have been much worse! It was a shame, though, because they wound up turning off at least a few potential subscribers with how it was handled.

I noticed a few of her cosmetic bags were also listed at full price. I saw these same bags at Costco (set of 3) for $20 just a few weeks ago.

Once I weed out which cosmetic subs I am going to keep, I may have to sign up for this. I loved the selections they had for me in their quiz.

Yup. The one thing that I will say in their favor is that it is the actual BETSEY JOHNSON line, rather than BETSEYVILLE, but I still wouldn't want to be getting 4 year old lines from a company unless it was clearly disclosed that these are not the current collection NOR are the pricings accurate. I don't mind buying older stuff--if it's at a substantial discount--but this...isn't. (Again, not counting that you get additional items). I think I shall pass on this one, too, even though it looked exciting at first.

Its a sub for curly hair products. If I hadn't just started doing the curlygirl method I might try out. 

 

I also can't figure out how one would subscribe if they wanted to? I don't think its open yet. 

 

I can't decide if I hate or love you right now. :P

That's why I signed up too! I also signed up for Look Bag because i'm getting antsy waiting for BirchBox, and I'm not sure yet if I trust MyGlam's shipping. This is pointing towards an addiction already and I haven't even gotten a box yet haha

I'm always down for a good deal, that's usually what gets my in trouble!  The only thing I'm concerned about is that I'll be gone for three whole months this summer (my department is sending me to Italy) so i'll either have to cancel subscriptions (or skip months if that's possible) or just have my roomies make sure they put my boxes in my room.  It would be kind of fun to come home to 9 boxes though!

You should be able to skip months but you would have to do it manually every month.

SO glad I wasn't the only one who found their inaugural box to be horrid. Someone said that their CS told them that the first month was done to just to gauge interest, but I don't know...it may sound stupid, but working in CS (in another field), when someone wants to cancel, we at least ask WHY they are cancelling--not just to try to "save" the account, but also because the feedback is important for future "directions" for the company. So while it was nice that they cancelled quickly, if they really were trying to gauge interest, I wonder why they didn't at least ask why people were cancelling, etc.

Oh, I feel ya there! I've set myself a budget for each month of approximately $50. I don't see my leaving Birchbox any time soon, and canceling MPB gave me room for Sample Society. I have a feeling MyGlam is gonna go after March, so that will give me a tad more flexibility. By keeping it at a price point I can manage and trying to give at least 3 months, I figure I'm getting a better shot at finding THE RIGHT one for me, ya know?

So far, I love love love Birchbox, I don't. I am not overly thrilled with my bag this month but there isn't anything I don't see myself using (if it works for me). I'm really excited for Sample Society and The Look Bag

    • When you have something that need to step foot out into the street, must you need to review myself to have decent and neat yet. Or maybe you need to makeup the back face, cool his hair a little. In addition to a face skin smooth screen, then hair neatly with the style chignon simple will help you look more outstanding. In these days of cold weather, your hair can be dull, rough or matted due to shampooing, so the bun hairstyle simple will help keep looks cute and more refreshed. If you are a person who love makeup, love beauty, then you should not skip this article! Here are 5 types of beautiful and simple hair that make you look great The Hairstyle On The Top This style of top bun is suitable for girls traveling by car or bus, not wearing a helmet, ensuring you are always neat, but also a little more height for you. This top bun style is a bit different, unlike the regular bun, which is the type of hair that knots, looking very different and youthful. This type of bun is also suitable for girls who have not yet washed their hair, can take advantage of the small strands of hair to make it more luxurious, hiding the scalp that begins to be greasy and itchy. Making: First, tie all your hair into a ponytail above the top of the head. You don't have to tie it too tight, you can loosen up to look natural, and you can release a few loose strands of hair around your forehead. Divide the hair into two equal parts, wrap the first strand around the rest of the hair and use a fixed clip to fix it. Take the rest of your hair, do the same thing, but wrap it in the opposite direction, and then use a peg to fix it. So the hairstyle on the top of your head is completed, it looks very dynamic right? Feminine Hairstyle This is the perfect way to put on a bun to wear a helmet, also neat enough for you to wear the turtleneck sweater and scarf without itching. It can be considered as a basic type of bun, decorated with a braided pigtail to add to the momentum, making your school and work days less boring. This is also a very romantic hairstyle, suitable for you to handle messy hair in dating. Making: Separate a small lock of hair in front of your face so that it will be braided later. The rest grabbed into a ponytail. From this ponytail, twist it into a simple twist and pin it with a toothpick. Use the hair in front of the face to form a strand of ponytail, tied temporarily with small rubber bands. Then, use your fingers to drag the braids to make the pigtail look loose and wider. Wrap it in the bun behind your head, then pin it with a toothpick and you're done. If you have a lot of loose hair, apply a little hairspray. Multi-layered Hair Drawn If you do not know how to create a chignon, you can still apply an extremely simple technique to create a special bun style, ready for parties. How to create multi-layered knots: First, comb your hair very smoothly, then take a part of the hair above the top of the head, divide it into two sections and tie the knot together. Combine some hair underneath each strand, then continue tying the knot together. Keep going until you have all your hair on the knots. Secure the tail with elastic. Afterwards, insert the ends into the hair and pin it with a toothpick to finish. If your hair is longer than the model in the photo, you can continue to tie the long strand of hair down the back of your neck like a ponytail, then twist it into a bun and pin it with a small clip. If desired, fingers can be inserted into the knots to create a thick and fluffy bun. For people with very smooth hair, spray extra hairspray or dry wax to prevent knots from falling out. Curly Hair Chignon This is a very elegant, elegant bun hairstyle, similar to the hairstyles of many famous stars attending the event, but it's actually very easy to do, you don't need sophisticated styling tools, but Just hair ties and toothpicks will suffice. Making: Take a lock of hair above the ears, twist it, and twist it to get more hair into the lock. Do the same thing on the other side of the lock, then tie the entire hair into a low ponytail behind the nape of the neck. Insert your fingers into the middle of the hair above the elastic to create a gap, then thread the entire end of the hair into this space, taking care not to let the ends pass through to reveal under the bun. If your hair is too long, you can place a portion of it on top, then clip it around with a toothpick. So your bun is done. Thanks to the double curls on the ear, your hair will look thicker, more fluffy and more sophisticated. You can drop a few strands of hair hanging down in front for a more feminine. Style Chignon This is a hairstyle suitable for the evening outings, creating a youthful look, a bit rebellious and suitable for dusty costumes. Making: If you do not have time, you can skip steps 1 to 4: These are the steps to tangle the hair on the top of the head to create a feeling of thicker hair, thereby making your face appear smaller. You can directly do it from the 5th step, which is to tie all the hair into a low ponytail, and then divide the hair into 2 parts. For the upper part, let's disassemble, then fold the lower part to cover this messy hair, forming a bulging bun. Use a rubber band to fasten, then divide the extra hair ends of the 2nd part into 2 smaller strands, use these 2 smaller strands to wrap around the elastic band and then pin with a toothpick to complete. If you want more momentum, you can use a curling iron a few curls around the face. hope you can choose for yourself a beautiful bun among the above. ------------------------------ Website: https://beautizon.co/
    • Try BB cream or CC Cream, avoid using foundations,I prefer using bb cream and cc cream as it suit my skin type
    • It is definitely the MICA! I cannot use any mineral products or anything containing Mica which sucks because all the good blushes and colors have Mica but as soon as I use it I break out.  I have no breakouts at all now that I am MICA free.  
    • I got your point. This is the same with me. They arent curls in a proper a way but due to lack of moisture they have become rough and frizzy  at the end and tend to curl. But you dont need to panic Start coconut oil again following with a masaage for 5 minutes Apply yogurt or dahi at the tips in order to retain up the smoothness and moisture at the end Dont forget to condition your hair when ever you shampoo
