My First Video Roundup!

Hi folks!

I love all you readers and I've missed you all over the past few weeks.  I've been working away on a bunch of different projects, but haven't been writing as much here as I've processed it all.  Plus, you may not have noticed yet, but I started making videos in the past couple months, though I don't post all of them here.  I started because while interacting with a lot of great YouTubers in the Geeks & Beauties Group they got me curious enough to try it out back around Christmas!  You can find my channel here, I would love it if you stopped by to take a look at what I've been making and subscribe if you're interested.

Since then I've found that it's the perfect place to share my unboxings when I get various monthly subscription boxes.  I felt like some of you wonderful people might not have been as interested in seeing all the snacks, beauty products, and other crazy boxes.  I love trying new things and exploring what great options are out there.  And I bet some of you are also interested in seeing what's available in subscription boxes too.

I got started trying boxes because I never really wore a lot of makeup, and until recently I hardly even owned any!  But the artist in me loves to experiment with colors and play with the new tools.  I love learning how to use the beauty basics so I can feel a little more confident if I want to create a particular look.  Boxes have been a great choice to find new products because I get curated items chosen for me sent to me door that I might not know to try otherwise.

I've branched out to try snack boxes for healthier options and to have fun trying out some foreign treats I might no otherwise try.  I've also been testing boxes that have interest based items like the Bookish box.  Because sometimes the novelty of it all is just so much fun.

With all that in mind I'm going to be doing roundup posts about once a month to collect all the videos where you can easily see them if you prefer to just follow my blog and not go to YouTube.  And it'll keep the videos to a minimum if videos aren't your thing.  Without further ado, here are the February videos you might have missed:

February Video Roundup


In this video I'm unboxing the February Birchbox, The Lip Sync Kit (6 lip products!), plus 4 more bonus lip colors! There's lip balm, lipstick, lipgloss, sheer, shiny, and matte. Talk about a haul!

Julep Maven Box

Unboxing this February 2016 Julep Maven box.  I have an It Girl profile so I get all nail polishes and today, I get 3 in this box.

Let's open up this box of Japanese snacks and see what's inside.  Learn how to open ramune soda, which uses a glass marble as a seal on the bottle!

Bookish Box

I'm so excited that Appraising Pages sent me one of their great Bookish Boxes to review!  It was given to me for free, but all opinions expressed in this video are my own.  Let's see what's inside this February box!

Isn't February's Glossybox the cutest?  Take a peek at what I got and tell me what you think.  I do want to note that the Teez lipstick does NOT last the 8 hours they claim, it was easily rubbed off as soon as I started eating, though maybe it lasts better in combination with some type of primer they make.

Love With Food Box

This is my first Love With Food box, let's open it up together!  Be sure to let me know what you think in the comments too.

Doki Doki Crate

This Miyazaki themed box is my first and last Doki Doki Crate.  Watch to find out why!  Since filming this they have made efforts to change their boxes, but I just didn't think it was a good fit for me.

Bestowed Box

I open my third Bestowed box for this February unboxing.  Inside are great healthy goods to give you creative new ideas for meals and snacking.

Love Goodly

Love Goodly is an every other month box of women's lifestyle items from makeup and accessories, to snacks and home goods.  Each box gives a portion of its proceeds to charity, a different one each month!

I know February is a while back, but I wanted to start with it because there were too many videos I wanted to share.  March will be up pretty soon, I'm tying to get caught up with publishing everything, but April is in the works too.  So hold on tight!

Please let me know what you thought of this post format.  Do you like the videos from each month put together like this?  Would you rather have individual posts that include videos?  Tell me in the comments so I can give you more of what you like!  I'll see you all again very soon for a new fashion post!
