This is what pretty penny will get you these days….

Whoa….that was so fast! I ordered this on Tuesday and the box arrived on Friday!

Here are the colors I was sent with my BoHo Glam Subscription for JUST A PRETTY PENNY!  (REMEMBER TO USE THE CODE MARCHINTRO)






As I mentioned in my original Julep post, I took the style test and was defined as BoHo Glam–the truth is I took the test until I got the colors I wanted:)  AND with the MARCHINTO code, I got both polishes and the hand scrub for $.01!!!

I LOVE THE COLORS!  I am so into the coral and teal craze right now!!!

While I love the colors, I wasn’t super impressed with the formula.  The Alicia color was REALLY thick–like paint and already chipped in two places (in less than 3 hours.)  It was also hard to move around my nail.

The Portia color was great, I like all the sparkle/glitter.  Though, I was disappointed that the color wasn’t more intense.

Overall, I don’t love them enough to keep them.  I sent a friend home with them yesterday.  I will keep the subscription for another month.  I did some research and I can change my “style” every month 🙂  I love nail polish and am hopeful that maybe a different color will have a better formula.

In other news:

I am still using the Vag Cream on my face, and I maintain that it is the new miracle product I had been looking for:)

My SHH and I spent the weekend in San Diego.  We had SUCH a great weekend.  Here is a family picture taken at Coronado Beach with my new hat:)  (if you remember from a previous post, I am avoiding sunscreen on my face right now and have purchased a few new hats)

Remember this??

Remember this post?  I need this like I need air!

WOO HOO, its finally here!


It is so much thicker than I thought it would be!

I am surprised that I don’t love it as much as I thought….ESPECIALLY considering the lengths I went to to pre-order.  I’m going to give it a few more days to see how I feel about it.  It doesn’t fit in my purse, but I love everything else about it.  It came with two fillable Laura compacts (one for eye and a bigger one for cheeks and glosses).

In other news:

SHH and I are headed way down south to San Diego for a visit to my favorite blog supporter!  We are even bringing Willie Nelson:)  I love beaches, room service, road trips and friends so this is bound to be epic…epic trip needs epic toes.

I really wish you could see these in person.  I tried taking this pic from every direction, but the high gloss finish on my big toes makes it nearly impossible to see how awesome the glitter /sparkle is.  Thank you Sephora by OPI for these fab colors. (Stay tuned for the names)

Facial Update:

I am amazed at how well I cleared up.   AMAZED-say what you will about vag cream and laxatives smeared on my face, the results are legit.  Now to deal with sun damage and scarring.  Does anyone have any insight on this?


Considering my level of commitment to being a FOR REAL Product Whore, I am amazed that NO ONE I KNOW TOLD ME ABOUT THIS-I used caps to suggest frustration.


“Four to five hand-picked deluxe samples delivered to your door for $10 per month.”  WHA-WHAT?!!?!?!  DELIVERED TO MY DOOR EVERY MONTH?  Its like CHRISTMAS but  BETTER and EVERY SINGLE MONTH!?!!?

“Every month, you’ll receive a box filled with 4-5 beauty samples from luxury brands. Each month will include a different mix of product types, including makeup, skincare, fragrance, body, and hair care. All samples are generously sized, with enough product to allow you to figure out if they’re right for you. You’ll also want to take advantage of, which is packed with all the beauty information and tips you need, including expert interviews, helpful tutorials, and fun videos.”

GENEROUSLY SIZED SAMPLES?!?!?  It might as well be filled with UNICORNS AND GLITTER with a RAINBOW on TOP!

I can’t believe I had never heard of this ’till recently.  I blame you friends.  All of you.  And Birchbox for not knowing that I am kind of a big deal and NEED this in my life.  It’s moments like this that makes me wonder if I am a country bumkin….HOW DID I NOT KNOW ABOUT THIS??!?  DO I LIVE UNDER A ROCK???  I am clearly not as cool as I thought.

The worst part of all of this is that when I was FOAMING FROM THE MOUTH EXCITED TO SIGN UP, I got this:  WE ARE ALL SOLD OUT, pls sign up for waiting list.

WAITING LIST????  THIS IS LIKE WAITING IN LINE AT A CLUB!!!  Those of you that know me know I would not tolerate such nonsense under normal circumstances.  (Note to reader:  I haven’t been to a club in…AT LEAST 3 years but when I was a “clubber” I was not about to wait in line)

My Professional Product Whore Opinion:

Sign up for waiting list here:  Birchbox

I obviously would not wait another minute.
