January 2017 #The3bBox #Unboxing

The 3B Box, standing for Beauty Beyond Borders, is a monthly subscription box featuring "must have" Asian beauty items that may not be readily available to you in your area. I had previously received The 3B Box when they first released in December 2014 into July 2015, then took a break from all my subscription boxes. The 3B Box is based in the US and ships for just $15 a month, with a stand alone shop to buy full size items as well.

#BlueBuffalo Healthy Starts Wet Dog Food #Review | #ChewyInfluencer

If you're new here, Venus and I are part of the Chewy Influencer program, which means each month Venus gets to try something new that Chewy has to offer in their online store. Chewy.com has a wide variety of pet food ranging from wet to dry to raw to freeze dried, as well as treats, toys, and other pet supplies for cats, dogs, and more!
This month, Chewy sent Venus a pack of Blue Buffalo Healthy Starts Wet Dog Food to try.
This item is a press sample, received in exchange for an honest review.

An Acne Fighting Giveaway!

I've been so blessed the past few months to have friends help me in so many ways, and I want to do something in return. I appreciate more than words can express when anyone uses one of my affiliate or referral links - not just because it helps fund my blog and products to review, but because I can use some to also give back to those who are supporting this blog. I'm currently wrapping up an Instagram giveaway put together with some masks from my stash, as well as some items I got in some blog boxes that I'll never (unfortunately) use, and this month I'm giving away some more masks plus some items picked up with my Amazon affiliate gift card. The theme for this giveaway (if you hadn't guessed by the title of this post) is products that have a good-running track record for fighting acne.

Me To Me #Memebox #Unboxing | #TreatYoselfFirst

It's been quite some time since I purchased a Memebox. I'll be totally honest, they aren't what they used to be years ago. But occationally I find some with new items that really intrigue me, and I decide my memepoints are worthy of being spent. Such was the case when I saw the Me To Me box posted, and knowing both my wedding anniversary and Valentine's day were fast approaching I snatched one up.

#NanaLee One Day One Pack Bio Cellulose Mask #Review | #MochiBeaute

Several months ago I first received a Nana Lee One Day One Mask Pack from the lovely Hanna at Mochi Beaute and I fell in love. It's a mask that I've kept (like many others that Hanna has suggested to me) for use on special occasions or when I need an extra special pick-me-up. This happens to be one of the latter of those times, so an nice night of pampering and forgetting my troubles is in the works. Tonight I'll be sharing my thoughts with you about this mask.

What's I'm Using Right Now | January 2016 Skincare

I've always gotten good feedback on my quarterly routine posts, and find that they've been helpful to others for finding products that work for them. In return, I also stalk other peoples posts for ideas of what will work for me, but I digress.

Since I started blogging years ago my skin has always been the same - oily in the winter, more oily in the summer, acne prone with hormonal cystic acne, and dehydrated. Over the past year, however, my skin has changed almost completely, and I find that my routine needs lots of tweaking (and not just because I want to try new products). So for the new years I want to post a monthly update of what I'm currently using, how my skin is acting, and what I'm really loving or wanting to try next. I think this will make a neat reference for me but I also hope some of you may find it useful as well!
