Ipsy Glam Bag April 2013

My Pretty In Pink Ipsy Glam Bag for April ’13 finally arrived (about 2 weeks late, but whatever). It was worth the wait! This is my favorite Glam Bag so far since I started my subscription in January. If you are not a fan of pink things, well, you probably won’t like these products with the exception of the hair powder. I LOVE me some pink, so I couldn’t be more thrilled. According to Ipsy, this month’s bag has a $30 value. I’m loving ALL of these products – no duds this month! Seriously.

Powder Play Voluminizing & Texturizing Powder by SexyHair: A great boost to my ultra fine/thin hair. Gives my hair a little lift by itself, or enables the tease to last.
Sation Nail Lacquer in Love At First Byte: My FAVORITE polish this Spring. A peachy-pink, high quality, glossy-sheer, yet buildable nail enamel.
Be a Bombshell Blush in Beach Please: Bright fuschia-pink blush that is super pigmented. Normally pink blushes don’t even show up on my skin. This one definitely does – a little goes a long way.
Mica Beauty Cosmetics Mineral Eyeshadow/Shimmer Powder in Earth: The most gorgeous shimmer powder that really shines! Use as eyeshadow or mix with lipgloss or blow onto nail polish. So many options for this versatile product.

Sometimes you just have to view the world upside-down to fully clear your mind. I typically do my self practice in my living room, but today I decided to take it outside in the fresh, cool spring air. I’ve been feeling a little bogged down lately, just trying to handle the responsibilities of being an adult, combined with all the tragedies that are going on in our world right now. This past week left me drained and overwhelmed. What do I do when I’m overwhelmed? I stop and stand on my head. Works wonders every time.  :)
