Happy graduation A!

Happy news! :) My amazing boyfriend A graduated this past Saturday with his Master’s Degree! Finallllllly! He was in an accelerated program (one of those fancy programs where you go to school for 5 years and get both your Bachelor’s AND Master’s degrees at the same time rather than do 4 years for your Bachelors and 2 for you Master’s). He is the most hardworking and intelligent person I know…which was illustrated by him being invited to sit up on the stage as part of the “Stage Party" (again, fancy) because he graduated with a 4.0 GPA. WHO DOES THAT?! Honestly I’m not impressed. Just kidding!
Now a second to enjoy my hair in that picture.

S is engaged!!

This past Wednesday was the official engagement dinner to celebrate my sister Steph and Matt’s decision to tie the knot. It was thrown by my mother and it was held at a beautiful mansion-restaurant which had a banquet room that would comfortably fit the 14 people who would attend (both sets of parents, all siblings and boyfriends, girlfriends, fiances, and wives). I was in charge of favors and created pink-iced vanilla engagement cupcakes in peek-a-boo boxes accented with a diamond on the top which you could see through the box top.

What I'm Loving Wednesday

What I’m Loving Wednesday:
  1. Infinity bracelet from Etsy
  2. Chelsea Jewelry Armoire
  3. Decorating cupcakes for Steph and Matt’s engagement dinner (even with little diamond accents!)
  4. New York & Co. I’ve spent wayyyy too much money in NY&Co recently because of my internship this summer. Ugh, I don’t even want to think about it. They have the best clothes and I just couldn’t help myself.
  5. Louboutin pumps

"My Glam Bag" and Birchbox

For the last few months I’ve been subscribed to Ipsy’s “My Glam" bag and Birchbox. Basically these are two services that let you sample high end products to see if you like them before you go through and spend the big bucks on them. The services are only $10 per month but the My Glam bags and Birchboxes have been wayyy over a $10 value. 
Glam Bag by Ipsy always packages the products in a cute little makeup bag that everyone on earth would love. How much do you love the zigzag patterned one?! It’s my favorite. AND that particular bag even came with a Zoya nail polish! (my favorite). Of the products in the picture I can’t remember which is which service but here are some of the fantastic products you get:
Skin & Co Sicilian Body Gel
Big Sexy Hair Powder Play volumizing and texturizing powder
MAKE makeup remover and lip stick sample
Malin + Goetz Peppermint Shampoo
Whish Shave Cream
Cotz Face SPF 40 Natural Skintone
Juice Beauty Organic Lip Gloss
Marvis toothpaste
Sumita Eye Pencil
Amika Nourishing Hair Mask
Amika Oil Treatment for hair
Advanced Anti-aging Eye Cream
Fabulous by Isaac Mizrahi (perfume)
I love these services. I’m unsubscribing to the birchbox but I’m staying with Glam Bag. It’s like a care package every month. If you like sampling products or getting an amazing deal then you should definitely try out one of these subscriptions!
