I love the cover of this book, and considering how much I am addicted to instagram, this is perfect for me!

 

Verdict: I liked the holiday theme of this box, and really like the big ticket Photo Book item, so I’m happy with the value as well.

  1. Thanks for this review! Those reindeer tags are super cute.

    Also, I didn’t realize you got a new URL. I’ve been reading for a while and I had your Blogspot URL bookmarked. Did you realize it’s not forwarding here? I assumed you were on a holiday vacation and weren’t updating until I happened to see a Facebook post, clicked through and it came to this new URL instead. Just FYI! It’s probably worth a post at the top of the old blog so readers know to come here if you can’t get forwarding set up.

    Thanks for great content!

    • Thanks for the heads up! I just added a post on blogspot to let peeps know about the switchover!

    • Ever since ive been diagnosed with stage 3 cervical cancer Ive lost my hair dignity and my beauty. Since ive seen ipsy advertisement on Facebook I thought why not. It has brought my confidence back along with some of the other girls in treatment with me. We dont have a lot of money but for 10$ a month no gimics or tricks ipsy has truly gave me something to look foward to!! We feel beautiful for practically nothing!! Ipsy, us girls on the oncology floor in st Joseph’s hospital just want to thank you from the bottom of our hearts for gibing quality products for such a low price, I know it has brought our confidence back in honest businesses and our beauty!!! Thank you ipsy

  2. Your box was better than mine! My photo album was an ugly wood-grain pattern and all of my holiday tags said Merry Christmas or From Santa (we’re Jewish). Oh well, maybe next month will be different…
