It’s almost time for my October Boxycharm to come, and despite the craziness and stress of this month, I think I have had enough time to try out my products and give my honest review on the September package.
Everything in my life was tilted on its side. My mother was facing a cancer diagnosis and I felt like my world was about to end.
Well, its been a rough couple of months. I haven’t been able to spend much money on my beauty addiction; I definitely haven’t dedicated much time to this beauty blog; and to be honest, I haven’t been much in the mood to write.
Twitter has been a good distraction for me and I’ve made a lot of nice online friends that I’ve been leaning on since my mother’s cancer diagnosis.
However, things have been way too serious lately, and maybe doing a nice, simple review will be good for me, and maybe it will help you guys out too.
So I decided to write about the highlight of my September, my first ever Boxycharm Box!
After the exploratory surgery had been completed, and we had the diagnosis, we had headed home to try and….hell, I don’t know – I guess live as normally as possible. My mother is a strong woman, and the idea that we treated her with any pity, seemed to bother her the most.
Its been 6 weeks – I can’t believe its been only 6 weeks – since we got the news that my mother probably had cancer. And for the most part, as callous as it is to say, I was able to forget about my fear and go about my normal life.
This month, I got home from a long week of camping to a surprise box at my door. Yes, thanks to the people at Influenster, I’ve been lucky enough to try Kat Von D’s latest two fragrances – “Saint” and “Sinner”. I hadn’t even realized I had been selected to sample these perfumes, and let me tell you, I was ridiculously excited when I opened the package to find them.
