Where have you been...

That's probably what everyone has been thinking.  Well, busy is the answer.  B.U.S.Y.

First of all, I'm still trying to plug through these Masters classes.  I am in Week 4 of a 5 week class, then I only have one more 5 week class after this and I'm done.  The end is in sight.  I think I can, I think I can.

Second, preplanning and back-to-school reared it's ugly head.  And there is nothing like being told two days before the start of school that you are going to go from teaching 5th grade ELA and Social Studies to teaching 2nd grade self-contained to make your head explode.  It was not pretty.

So yeah, that's where I've been.  I promise to get back to posting more soon, just as soon as my brain settles into second grade world and I find balance between home, school, and grad school (at that rate, I'll start posting again once the kids are off to college).

August Popsugar Must Have Box and Ipsy Glam Bag

I love it when things come in the mail!  Love it!

It's like Christmas, even if I was the one who ordered the stuff.  So, imagine my excitement Wednesday, when both my Ipsy Glam Bag and Popsugar Must Have box arrived.

First for the Ipsy Glam Bag.  Here's an overview of what arrived in the bag.

As always, everything came tucked inside a cute little bag.  This one was a graphic black and white with a pop of hot pink.

Inside was a sample size lipstick by Noyah in soft pink.

Next came a Luxe Doubler eye liner and lip liner.

Then Trust Fund nail polish in a soft periwinkle/purple.

A Briogeo hair volumizer

And finally, Juara antioxidant mask.

I have to be honest, at this point I am considering canceling my subscription to Ipsy.  It just doesn't seem like the samples I am getting are anything I am going to use.  I'll try these and see how it goes from there.  If you are interested in trying them out, just click on the link here and sign up.  It is only $10/month.

Now for the Popsugar Must Have Box.  Here is what it looked like when it arrived.

And a closeup of the goodies inside.  First up, some yummy-looking Birthday Cake Pancake and Waffle Mix.  Can't wait until this weekend when I can force the hubby to make these.

Next, a super cute lunchbox all ready for back-to-school.

A great little mug just waiting for some English Breakfast Tea!

Royal Apothic Tea Balm Firming Eye Treatment.  I already started using this.  Will let you know if anything life altering comes from it.

Some super cute napkins ready to be thrown in a lunch box.

Finally, a fun scarf (forgive the picture, it doesn't do it justice) by American Colors.  It is blue and pink plaid and should be great once the weather starts to cool down.

As a bonus, there was also Folgers Iced Cafe drink concentrate.  I'm not a coffee fan, so this will be going to school for whoever wants it.

Overall, I'm pretty happy with this month's box.  I'm kinda enjoying all the surprise goodies that come in it every month.  If you are interested in signing up, it is $39.95 a month and you can sign up here.
