July 2017 Boxycharm: Cutie Pie

July 2017 Boxycharm: Cutie Pie, Blinc Electric Eyes Eyeshadow Palette, ColourPop Beeper, Bareminerals invisible light translucent powder duo, winkylux universal eyebrow pencil

I admit that I'm not the most patient person, so I was getting really antsy when Boxycharm sent me an email on the 5th that my box has shipped and the arrival date was pending for about a week and a half.  I kept wondering what the delay was about. I was obsessively checking my tracking everyday. Finally, I got the notice that it would arrive on the 21st! That's the longest I've waited for Boxycharm! But now that I have it, it feels like Christmas! 

A Newlyweds' Apartment Wishlist


In my 27 years of existing, my 1-bedroom, 670 square-foot apartment is the smallest habitat I've ever lived in. But I have never been happier.

Bio-Oil First Impressions


To be honest, I have not used beauty oils all that much, with the exception of the Smashbox Primer Oil for my face. I know I have naturally dry skin all over my face and body, and I've struggled with more dryness since using our shower from our new apartment. The Soap & Glory Righteous Butter has been my savior for my skin.

Linkin Park & Fort Minor Playlist


Cecilio works at the local news station as a digital journalist/producer, so he gets access to breaking news before it gets released to the public. On Thursday, when he told me that Chester Bennington from Linkin Park committed suicide, I was in shock.

One of my biggest mistakes when I first started blogging 3 years ago was not utilizing social media to its fullest. Ok, when I did start Floraful, I created my twitter to go along with it, @im_hannaheunice. I followed all of my favorite beauty and fashion brands, celebrities, politicians, local businesses, etc. I promoted my blog posts like I do today (my proud moment as a baby blogger was when I wrote a post about my birthday haul from Francesca's Collections, tweeted it and they read it, and sent me free items), but for the most part, I had no clue what I was doing. I didn't know how to find other fellow bloggers. Overtime, I did start finding other bloggers (and they found me as well), promoted more often, and joined Twitter chats.

Finally, after resubscribing to ipsy in April and getting a few months worth of crappy glam bags, I actually get products I actually will use and enjoy!

Travel Bucket List


I've always had the itch to travel, and I can say I get it from my mama: she was a flight attendant in the 80's, and got to live in Bangkok and Jeddah. Meanwhile, she visited NYC (her first trip to the US in 1981), Madrid, Paris, Rome, London, Seoul and Singapore. She also traveled all over the US for business trips.
