What’s in my beach tote?

Hey everyone! Hope you like the fresh new look of the blog!

It’s my favorite time of year…the hot sun, perfect tans, and crazy nights out…summertime on the Jersey Shore!

Although part of my summer will be spent interning for the beauty division of a public relations company (YAY so excited!!!), I still have my beach bag packed and ready to go in my trunk for the days I have off.

Here are the products I recommend for all you gals heading off for a day in the sun and sand!

What's in my beach tote?
One of the key products in my beach tote is leave-in conditioning spray. OGX is a pretty good brand, but I also personally recommend Aussie’s Hair Insurance! Right after you get out of the salty ocean, go back to your chair and spray your wet hair with the conditioner. It will help keep your locks from drying out!

My Very First Birchbox!

Sorry I haven’t been writing this week–it’s been 90 degrees and above and I have been soaking up the rays at the beach!

I wanted to share this monumental moment with my readers…I lost my virginity…


I was put on the Birchbox waitlist sometime in June and I was pumped to get the great confirmation email a few weeks ago.

A few days ago, after a particularly gorgeous day in the ocean, I saw a beautiful pink box sitting on my kitchen table. Attracted to anything pink, I scrambled to open it, and screamed with joy when I realized it was my very first Birchbox package!

What’s inside:

Moisture Prep Toning Lotion by Benefit


Acne Control Treatment by DDF


Juicy Couture Fragrance


CC Cream Broad Spectrum SPF 40 by purminerals


Eau de Parfum Fragrance Wipe–East Hampton


I have yet to use some of them…mostly because I keep them in the box on display for all of my friends to be jealous of when they walk in. They usually tell me that they’re unimpressed by my makeup samples, but I know they want my Benefit Moisture Prep.

They're all jealous because I was the first one ;)

They’re all jealous because I was the first one 😉

I know TONS of people get cute makeup sample boxes! Let me know if you’ve used any of these products yourself, or how much YOU are dying for your own Birchbox to come in the mail!!!!
