March Play! by Sephora #SephoraPlay

-Five deluxe samples in a drawstring bag every month for $10. 

My March bag: 

The White drawstring bag says "Glow Your Own Way". I am not a huge fan of these bags. I haven't found any great uses for them so far and I much prefer the Ipsy bags. However, the contents are completely worth it. 

Living Proof full dry volume blast (95ml) 

benefit Watt's Up! (0.08oz)

Glamglow Glowstarter Mega Illuminating Moisturizer (0.24oz)

Bobbi Brown Long-Wear Cream Shadow Stick in Golden Pink

Josie Maran Surreal Skin Argan Finishing Balm  (0.1oz)

Chloe Eau De Parfum (1.2ml) 

This bag was well worth my $10! I know that several of these are travel sized and would cost that by themselves. The Watt's Up! is my absolute favorite highlighter. Chloe smells amazing. I am a fan of perfume in my sample boxes even though others are not. I like to toss them into my purse and refresh my scent half way through my day. I also like trying new and different perfumes. The only disappointment was the Josie Maran sample. It is almost empty and looks dried out. The Bobbi Brown eyeshadow stick is awesome! It is a gorgeous gold color. Living Proof is also a really amazing brand and I am excited to try a (new to me) product of theirs.

If I were to compare my two subscription boxes this month, I would definitely give the win to Play! by Sephora over Ipsy. It is typically the better of the two boxes. You should know that there is typically a wait list to get the Sephora box. You have to click on the email within 24 hours of it arriving to get in. So, sign up now and jump on the chance if you are invited.

March #Ipsy Glam Bag

*$10 a month with free shipping
*Co-founded in 2011 by YouTube trailblazer Michelle Phan
*Every month you receive a make-up bag with 5 deluxe
samples to full sized products.
*Contents vary per person based on the preference survey you take when you sign up. 
My March Bag:

Ipsy sends a different makeup bag each month along with your samples. They will occasionally have designers to design one for the brand. This month was unique because it was a taller bag that can be folded over and used as a clutch. It is a pretty goldish peach color. The front has a repeating circle pattern and the back is a solid, soft pink peach.

Inside the bag:

-Doucce Freematic eye shadow in Marisa 
-Ouai Treatment Masque (1 oz) 
-The Balm Bahama Mama bronzer (0.57g) 
-Elizabeth Mott Blending Brush 
-Mudmasky Facial Detox Purifying Recovery Mask (0.5oz)

I received an eyeshadow, a bronzer, a blending brush, a hair mask and a face mask. I am familiar with three of the five brands. The brands that Ipsy works with are mostly high end. Overall, I am pretty happy with Ipsy. They are consistently good with very few months that disappoint. I will use everything in this box except for the bronzer. I have some bronzer already and I have never perfected the art of using it.

Do you use Ipsy? Are you signed up for a different subscription box? Let me know!

Grand Prix of St. Pete Deal with Coca Cola at CVS #CokeFlorida #FirestoreGP

Two of my favorite companies: Coca Cola and CVS have teamed up to give Tampa area residents a discount to the St. Pete Grand Prix! I have also partnered with them and I will be attending. I am extremely excited. Grand Prix are a lot of fun and what a view in our beautiful city. So, here is the deal:

Buy any three Coca-Cola products and receive a voucher for $25 off a 3 day pass to the Grand Prix of St. Pete. The tickets are regular $55, so that makes them $30 each. Three days of entertainment for $30 is an incredible deal. But, wait.... it gets even better...

CVS has Coca Cola on sale for 3/$10 thru 3/11. This means that you can stock up on your favorite soda AND receive a voucher for the Grand Prix. The vouchers are located at the register and look like this. 

So, hurry to your local Tampa CVS and grab this deal now. The Grand Prix of St. Pete starts this Friday 3/10 and ends Sunday 3/12.
