Ever wonder what to do with all those GlossyBox monthly beauty subscription boxes?
I’ve been wanting to purchase a nail polish wall rack for a while now, but when I was in my Beauty Cave this morning, I just kept looking at my GlossyBox boxes and the light bulb in my head popped up. Make my nail polish rack from those boxes! Lids and all!
First I opened all my GlossyBoxes
Got some nails that I found in my garage and the hammer.
Saw the wall I wanted to use as the background and thought how I wanted to set up the boxes on the wall.
I did it this way, that way I can use the tops of the other boxes below as shelves too. You can use as many as you want to cover your walls to create your own nail polish racks.
This is my creation!
There you have it! Your easy DIY Nail Polish rack!
You can use any boxes you have. These are cute because it has its own little background in the boxes already.
Easy Garlic Parmesan Chicken Penne meal for the family.
So my daughter went out for dinner with my sisters last month and they went to an Italian restaurant and my daughter ordered the Garlic Parmesan Chicken Penne and brought her leftovers home. So, we decided to make our own at home.
It was super easy and all the items we needed were BOGO deals at Winn Dixie so that was a score for us!
All you need is:
Box of Penne
Garlic Parmesan sauce
Sea Salt for taste
I boiled water and put the Penne in while I was stir frying the chicken and garlic.
Then added the baby spinach.
Stirred it all together until the baby spinach was cooked, then added the Garlic Parmesan sauce.
Sirred all that together, then drained the water from the penne and added the penne pasta.
Mixed it altogether to get this super easy quick yummalious meal. And yes, if you follow my posts, I create new words. 😉
I don’t remember that exact timing from start to finish, but I would say it didn’t take more than 20 minutes.
The kids loved it and that’s what really matters.
My son is going to town eating it and my daughter was already working on her 2nd plate.
So the Super Easy and Quick Garlic Parmesan Chicken Penne was a complete success!!
Until next time Dolls
What are some of your super quick and easy family meals?
My January Ipsy bag finally landed in my mailbox today!
Keep in mind that Ipsy bags are $10 a month with free shipping to the US.
Let’s get into what all they selected for me this month.
Mica Beauty cosmetics – Tinted lip balm in #6 Fiesta Briogeo – Don’t Despair, Repair! deep conditioning mask Proactive+ – Mark Fading Pads Nourish Organic – Lightweight Moisturizing Face Lotion Elizabeth Mott – Smooth Shadow in Pearl
Mica Beauty cosmetics
We’ve received several different products from this brand and so far, I haven’t been enticed to use any of them. This lip balm included. I’m not a potted lip balm type of person, but if you are then you may like this one.
It’s not like any other tinted lip balm that I’ve seen because this one is SUPER pigmented. It’s mauve in color and it’s semi matte to me. I’ll most likely give this to my daughter or put it in my box of goodies that I don’t use and may do a giveaway with all the items in there. I don’t want all of it just collecting dusk.
I couldn’t find this exact product on their website but the other lip balms are $14.95
ElizabethMott Smooth Shadow Also included in this months bag is a Elizabeth Mott Smooth Shadow in the color Pearl.
Finally something out of this bag that I’ll use. This is a very nice shimmery pearl color that glides on smooth. For me, I had to swipe it twice to get the pigmentation that I like. It’s a gel pencil that stays in place!
The cost is $14.99.
With that cost, I don’t think I would repurchase. I’ll use it up until it’s gone though.
This is the 1st time that I’ve seen proactiv in an Ipsy bag. I don’t care for proactiv products because when I thought my little monthly breakouts were bad, (They seriously weren’t) I used the proactiv set and of course the purging of all things nasty came about! Then I totally freaked! Stopped that mess! Regardless what they say, “It always gets worse before it gets better.” this chic was not having that!
They included four (4) proactiv + Mark Fading Pads.
A pack of 15 pads is $41!!!
What! Are they mad? They done lost their minds!
Nope, not me, I wouldn’t pay that much money for that!
Briogeo Don’t Despair, Repair! deep conditioning mask 10z This is another item that I’ll try! I’ll try about anything when it comes to a good hair conditioning mask. I’ve put my hair through some serious dye jobs throughout my life. I need to make sure I always have it nourished.
It has a light pleasant scent to it.
A full size jar is 5.25 oz’s for $26.
So, this 1 oz jar equals to $4.95 and I can see this being a good 3-4 applications. I have super long hair.
Nourish Organic Nourish Organic Lightweight Moisturizing Face Lotion 0.5 oz’s is the last product in the bag.
As you can imagine, if you’ve been following my posts, is that I’ve been in search of a good face moisturizer. So, this will be in with the rest of the face moisturizers that I’m going to try.
We shall see if it’s really deserves that price.
Well, for all 5 products the cost of this whole bag is:
Not bad for a monthly cost of $10.
Until next time Dolls
