December Ipsy Bag

 This month's was quite a surprise! I got my email on the 12th stating that the bag was coming and by magic it was already on my doorstep. Something tells me that the email and bags ended up all flustered. The best part is that my mom finally got a bag as well.

November Ipsy Bag

It's that time again! I got my new bag super early! I'm still waiting on the other subscription box in the mail that's for ladies only. Hopefully, that shows up soon. 
This month's bag was titled Glam it up! which on the card told of a contest. Apparently, if you take a great photo of the stuff you got and tag #ipsy on Instagram or Facebook you could win a year of Ipsy free. 
The second card was from the brand .em by Michelle Phan that told we would be receiving not a sample but actual full sized product. The line is on the pricey side so it's nice to be able to get full size. 

 More below the cut!

October Ipsy Bag

This would have been post number 7 but unfortunately (and I don't know how) one got deleted. It's gone, too much went into it, time consuming etc etc.. Not gonna repost. 

So on to the happy stuff. IPSY!!

Tasty Tea

This post was pretty much an excuse to use my new phone again and a new collage app. That and this tea is amaza-balls! 

Yeah, I said Amaza-balls.

Anyway, I'm a fan of tea and since I can only afford the bagged stuff I'll try just about any flavor I find inticing. I don't know what Hibiscus tastes like by itself but it makes the orange nummy. 

A longer post is coming since my Ipsy showed up today!

September Ipsy Bag

This month's Ipsy Subscription came a little late then usual for me as did my email. The bag actually came before the tracking number told me it was there. According to my number, the bag is still in Kentucky LOL! There is going to be a lot more babbling in this post because some of the products or things inserted need a bit of explanation.
As always so not to spoil it for anyone not having received their bag yet, it's below the cut!

The Gram that is Instant

As most of the people on the planet, I have an Instagram. At one time I had an iPhone and joined on there. 3 pictures later and I was completely done with it. No clue what to do with the program as it was in it's infancy and I just didn't see the point. 

I switched to a Droid. Everyone should.

Anyway, I re-added Instagram and have since added many people to follow as well. It reminds me a bit of twitter and tumblr so its not super difficult to get.  Take a picture, write a note underneath it, submit to Instagram and whatever other favorite social sites you have. 

I am THAT person. Say hi to Boo (Jareth).

Talking, Chittering, and Chatting.

Coming up with some thing to post about is a lot harder then I realized. I talk all day long. ALL DAY. I work as a dispatcher for a towing company that is a good size. Usually the day is broken up into parts of busy and slow.

I crave the slow just so I don't have to talk so much. 

I've learned that talking is an essential part of life, especially when you work customer service. I talk to customers, my drivers, to different motor clubs and my boss. It took me a few years to realize that since I'm so chatty at work, I don't talk at home. When I live by myself, where it is just me and the cat, I rarely say two words until I get to my job again.

Sometimes I wonder if the cat thinks I'm mute.

August Ipsy Subscription Bag

Back in May, I found out about subscription services. All kinds can be found for anything you'd like from makeup, food to pet stuff. You pay a set price per month (either s&h is included or not) and they send you a box or bag filled with either samples or full size products to try. 

Ipsy ( ) used to be called MyGlam. For just $10 a month that you can cancel any time, you can get a custom made bag and around 5 pieces of full size or sample makeup. Also included is a card telling you that if you go to your MyGlam page (on the website) there will be codes to get discounts on the products you an receive in the bags.

This is this month's bag, apparently the print on my is backwards but isn't that a really gorgeous color? My phone doesn't show how really deep and nice it is. 
(Soon I'll have a nice phone..soooo soon)

Some people still haven't gotten their bags so what I received is below the jump. Why the hush hush? The products we get are always a surprise. There are teaser photos on the Ipsy Facebook page but you don't really know til it arrives. There's always one or two products that won't be the same as someone else's bag as I'll talk about below. They are based on a quiz you take when you sign up and they try to cater the bag to what you like.

So here is the obligatory first post complete with sky shot. Sup? The name is Tina, 33 years old and living in Pennsylvania, USA. I don't really have a plan for this just want to be completely random and talk about stuff. SomeWhatGirly is about me slowly starting to become a more girly person that I wasn't originally. Long story short, I've been a tomboy most of my life.
