Rocksbox

Rocksbox Reveal – Vol. 6

Nothing gets me more excited than getting my Rocksbox each month. I’ve said this before and I will say it again, I get 10x more compliments on my jewelry, than I do on anything else.

This is really making me question my current selection of clothes and makeup, but that’s for another day.

Anyways, this months Rocksbox was really good. Once again, all the pieces were on my Wishlist, so the stylist this month was ME. I’m getting really good at this, I think.

I specifically wanted a chunky necklace to go with this jumpsuit that I was taking on my cruise, so I was happy they sent me the Ava Rose Aurora Necklace. However, I was a little bummed that it came in after I returned from my trip, but that’s ok, I still wore it with a couple of outfits and it is GORGEOUS.

The stones are lightweight and I am guessing not real, unless there is some stone made of glitter that I am unaware of. It also drapes beautifully down the neckline. I wish it didn’t cost $125 because if it was just half the price, I would have kept it.

I also received these really lovely Kendra Scott Elora earrings. A nice twist to a traditional hoop earring, they dangle and shimmy as you move, but are not heavy or make any noise. I really like that.

I wore it with my hair up in a pony tail, white tshirt and jeans when leaving for a business trip and got two compliments at the airport. I felt like such a jet setter!

The last piece I got were these Starshine Ear Climbers from Dusk. These were cute, but tiny! I felt like they were a little overshadowed by the other two pieces, but I wore them few times to give them a chance.

As always, if you are interested in checking out Rocksbox for yourself, feel free to use my referral code MaritzaBFF39 at checkout and you get your first month free. Keep in mind, that I also get a $25 credit for a future purchase, so if you decide to go for it, I thank you in advance.

Till next time, my friends!

what’s in my bag

What’s in my Bag? Disney Edition

I have a small secret to confess. I’m not much of a Disney fan.

Ok, so let me rephrase that. I LOVE Disney movies and all the Disney characters because they remind me of my childhood, which was great, BUT, I hate the crowds, heat, lines, matching family shirts and others people’s children in general. Let’s not even talk about the amount of money you spend there. Is it really worth forking over a months salary to wait in line for 120 minutes to see Elsa?

No. The answer is always NO.

However, my kids and husband are big fans of the Mouse, so sometimes you just have to take one for the team.

With that being said, as a Floridian, I’ve been to Disney more times than I can count and even though I complain, I always end up having a somewhat good time. It truly can be “magical” when all is said and done.

The key is not to stress and that includes your outfits and makeup. We’ll be there for 7 days and all my outfits consist of comfy T-shirts, shorts, jeans and a hoodie if it gets chilly (Yes, from time to time it gets cold in Florida).

Makeup is all about the basics. You want to get up early and go to the parks to beat the lines, and therefore it might be smart to skip the wing liner. Below is a small (ish) list of items in my Disney makeup bag:

Face

Physicians Formula Healthy Foundation. Always over the sun screen, but just a light layer because chances are you will be sweating. Just enough for me to cover some of the freckles.

Besame Vanilla Brightening Powder. Not only will you be waking up early, but also staying up late to catch the fireworks, so a little brightening powder under the eyes will help.

Antonym Baked Highlighting Blush in Lily. This is beautiful pinky peach blush with just a tiny bit of shimmer. Honestly, you could take any blush, I just happen to really, really like this one.

Eyes

Besame Snow White I’m Wishing Palette. No way am I going to Disney without taking something from my collection and this palette is perfect for two reasons: the mirror is nice and big and will help with getting ready and the colors are neutral, so you can easily tap a bit of color on your lids and go.

Besame Agent Carter Palette. I love this palette because it’s small and you can go from a simple easy look to a deeper look if you want. Also, Marvel is owned by Disney now, so I feel it’s totally appropriate.

Colourpop Super Shock Shadow in Heigh Ho from the Snow White Collection. Adding this one for a little shine if I want to for dinner. A girl needs options!

Butter London Double Decker Mascara. My go to mascara. It makes my lashes thick and full. I would also consider packing a waterproof mascara as there are few water rides in the parks, but I’m good I’m with just this one.

Lips

Almay Butter Kiss Lipsticks in Berry Light. Honestly, between all the walking and sweating, you will be reaching more for your chapstick than a liquid lip. The Butter Kiss formula is moisturizing with a light wash of color and shine.

Real Her I Am Awesome Lipgloss. Another moisturizing option, but for those days you want more shine and color. Just throw this one in the bag for when you need a bit of oomph for your selfies with Minnie.

Colourpop Creme Lux Lipstick in Candy Apple Red from the Snow White Collection. Ok, if I’m going to be honest, I probably will never even wear this lipstick, but you always need a nice red just in case. Lipstick emergencies happen and you must be prepared!

I might take a few other items, but these are the “for sures”. Like I said, the goal when spending time with your family at Disney is to enjoy the moment, but a little makeup Magic never hurts.

Till next time, my friends!
