I’ve decided to to stick with my Ipsy subscription because I love the cosmetics and the little cosmetic bag that I receive each month.  The Julep Maven cosmetics and polishes are very nice but it’s a more each month and I decided to wait on that committment.  Birchbox is the the same amount each month as Ipsy but I would prefer to get more cosmetics than the other items that I’ve received.  I would prefer a cosmetic bag than a box.  The products are nice but I made my final decision based on finances and getting more of what I like for the money.  I will continue to share what I receive in Ipsy each month on this page.

Crystal Wilkerson – Freebie on the Fifth – November Edition


November is the month of thankfulness because of  Thanksgiving but I have learn to appreciate the benefits of being thankful for something everyday.  Being thankful on a daily basis helps with living a positive life.  I started a gratitude journal a year ago and it helps me appreciate my life.  I created a gratitude list to put in my planner each month that I would like to share.

My daughter started teaching in August, so since she is no longer a manager to the movie theater, we won’t have our passes any longer after December 31, 2014.  Going to the movies was a major source of entertainment for us.  We will continue going to the movies from time to time but not as much as we did with our passes.
