I used to think audiobooks were so ridiculous. I refused, for years, to even entertain the idea. Luckily though, I decided to give them a chance and holy crap am I happy I did! Seriously, a well narrated audiobook is like crack. I just keep coming back for more. I get to grab my wireless headphones and enjoy a book while simultaneously getting things done. It's awesome! Of course, there's still nothing quite as nice as a physical book though so I get massively excited when I get my OwlCrate each month!

So, I had this urge to organize my makeup drawer and weed out all the old products. Once I had the massive mess all spread out, I realized that while I have far to much makeup, it's nearly impossible for me to throw any of it out. I'm a makeup hoarder, a fact made crystal clear by the cosmetic mountain piled before me. I love it and while I acknowledge that I have far to much of it, I just can't stop myself from acquiring more. Right now, my beauty fix is being fulfilled by the June Play! by Sephora box!

You know, at this point I have honestly lost count of how many different boxes I've had the privilege to review. I love all of them, each category bringing new wonders and delights to my mailbox. There's one category in particular that sits at the top of my list though - Lifestyle. It brings you the best of everything and one of my favorite lifestyle subscrptions has to be Konenkii box.

One of my favorite things to do in the world is curl up with a good book. I love to read anytime of the year, but especially in the lazy heat of Summer. So what better way to kick off the first few official summer days than with the June Bubbles + Books Box!
With the Summer heat, comes a need (for me at least) to lounge around inside and try to stay cool and comfy. What you wear in this heat has to fit certain guidelines for me: the thinner the better and less is more. Good loungewear is a must and my Wantable Intimates box always keeps me stocked up without the perfect pieces.

I've mentioned it many times, but I have a special relationship with food. Growing up in an Italian family, it's not surprising. Food is warmth, comfort and tradition. Food is love and happiness - it's always at the center of our family gatherings. There's something about it that is hard to explain and properly convey in words. Now those who want a little bit of that delivers Italian magic thanks to Nonna Box!

I have a passion for fashion. Style is what allows us to change everything about our look as often as we want. It's the outward projection of how we want people to see us at that particular time and place. In short, fashion kicks butt and an amazing look can be achieved no matter what sort of budget you have. Threads Monthly is proof of that.

June is here and boy is it a busy month in my family! In addition to several family members birthdays, my birthday and wedding anniversary also happen to fall in this wondrous month. All in all, June is a happy time for me, filled with excitement. And what better way to get ready for these events than opening a new box of glitzy goodies from Your Bijoux Box!

Slowly but surely, the heavy heat that comes with a Southern summer is beginning to creep in. Three weeks ago, I needed to carry a blanket to my sons nightly baseball games but now it's 92 freaking degrees outside. That's life in the South though and as hot as it can get here, I wouldn't want to be anywhere else. But let's forget about the heat for a moment and talk about the June Birchbox!

Blogging has a lot of perks. I love working with brands and influencers to try out products and get the word out about them. It's just so much fun and I have a blast experimenting and sharing my experiences with my Dolls!
