Unboxing The BoxyCharm May Box

Since we're still mostly staying home, it's always nice to get exciting mail. BoxyCharm is a monthly subscription box filled with beauty items. We ordered it for the first time last month and was impressed with what we got, so we continued with the subscription.


Here's what was in May's box!





There was a Berryglow Probiotic Recovery Face Mask. Natalie says it smells amazing and she likes the packaging.





This Micellar magic makeup remover & cleanser will come in handy:





Natalie likes this Blickity Black Eyeliner and even better? It's a vegan liquid formula:




She had been wanting eyeshadow primer so she was all about this. I don't even know what eyeshadow primer is.




Finally, this essentials palette is gorgeous:






You can order your own BoxyCharm box here. There are different options. We're on the regular monthly BoxyCharm box which is $25 a month.


What is awesome is that you fill out a form before you get your first box on what you'd mostly like in it. For example, Natalie wanted mostly makeup, so I made sure to write that down. You also can pick what colors you prefer.


If you want your own box click here or use the code Amber-AREMLXCK at checkout! We'll get charms if you do this so we can shop at the store on the BoxyCharm site with them. You can cancel whenever you want.




What was your favorite thing this month? We were excited about the palette and makeup remover!

Hey, It's Okay

I got this idea from Glamour magazine. You can link up any day of the week. All you have to do is make a list of what you're okay about. Simple! Please do not link up a post that has nothing to do with Hey, It's Okay. It's rude and I'll delete the link.





HEY, IT'S OKAY....



.....to hate what is going on in the world at the moment. I saw this photo and it resonated with me. I am here.





.....to think it's crazy that school officially ends on Thursday. This has been a bizarre school year, that's for sure.



.....to be bummed that Disney World won't be happening in June, but I hope we can go in August. I'm waiting to be able to change my dates. Right now they are going through "magical enhancements" with the reservation system, so I can't. I don't mind that there are no character meals, fireworks, and all that. We make our own fun! We're there to celebrate my son's high school graduation.



.....to be visiting family in North Carolina next month. My husband has to deploy this year so it'll give him a chance to say goodbye.



....to love this mask that I bought on Etsy. I've been watching Schitt's Creek on Netflix during the quarantine, and I love it! Have you seen it?

Cleaning Out School Lockers



Well, cleaning out school lockers was different this year. Usually it's Natalie going through her pile of crap that she's shoved in her locker throughout the year. This year someone else did it due to the lockdown. And I felt bad for them, because can you imagine some of the smells in middle school lockers?

"Mine didn't stink. It was messy, but at least there wasn't a smell," Natalie told me as we waited in the car line. You couldn't go in. You got in line at the school drop off during an assigned day and you couldn't get out of your car.




The cars in front of us were handed small bags of locker contents so I thought, okay, that'll be the same for us.

What was handed over looked like an overnight bag. Or maybe a bag that would last 3 days. I was like, "Natalie, what on earth did you have in your locker?"

She replied, "Everything."

I mean, her room is messy, so I'm not surprised her locker was the same way. And again. Thank you to all the people stuck cleaning out lockers.


Here's Natalie and her locker bag:




Most of it was old papers that she had shoved in there. Plus gum. And old clothes and the winter hat she claimed she lost but in reality she had stuffed in her locker because "it didn't go with my skin tone."

This school year was anything but normal. But it officially ends Thursday.

"Next year maybe keep your locker clean?" I suggested.

Natalie shrugged. "I'll try. But I doubt it'll happen."





Did you keep your locker clean? I did not. I tried, but it never stayed clean.
