MAC x Selena Quintanilla Collection #MACSelena Coming in 2016

I have officially lost my mind!

I was a huge Selena back in the day. I listened to all of her music, watched all of her performances on TV that I could find and ultimately watched some of the saddest news footage I had ever witnessed in my young life the day her life was tragically taken.

No one is more deserving of a collection like this than someone who has inspired so many long after she was gone. She wasn't just a great singer, she was a female minority that proved that anyone can succeed no matter where they come from. She was amazing!

I will be buying a lot from this collection. 2016 can't come fast enough! I'll be sure to post when I have more details.


POPSUGAR July Must Have Box Sneak Peek

POPSUGAR Must Have Box - July 

I've received and reviewed a handful of POPSUGAR's Must Have Boxes and I have to admit, this may be one of the ones I'll get the most use out of it! While I honestly have loved them all, there's generally an item or two I can't use--for example, one box had a cupcake mix in it and I'm allergic to wheat.

This box is absolutely perfect for Summer travel, so for those of you that already subscribe, get excited!

Inside the Box

My box contained the following items.

PopDental Travel Toothbrush (battery included)

This is fantastic ... and not just because they included a battery! The fact that the battery in this one is replaceable and it doesn't require a charging stand is perfect for jet-setting dental care. According to the packaging, it packs quite a punch when it comes to cleaning, too.

SuperGoop Setting Spray SPF50

Sun care is so incredibly important, but it can be hard to remember if you're in a rush to apply it to your face--and generally most people don't like to use the sunscreen they use on their bodies to their faces. This is an extremely convenient product--set that makeup and protect your face all at once. I still personally suggest using a separate face sunblock (my dermatologist always recommends a separate sunblock product to ensure full coverage), but if you're in a bind at least you should get some coverage with this. 

Yes to Carrots Blueberry Cleansing Cloths

Face cleansing cloths are fantastic on the go. While I tend to bring along my full skincare regime when I travel, I really like cleansing cloths for those in-between moments when my face needs a quick refresh--especially when flying. I can't remember if I've tried the blueberry ones, but I know Yes to Carrots' cleansing clothes are quite popular with a number of people.

Hallmark Note Cards

I am the type of person that likes to keep note cards on hand for the "just in case". I find there's always a birthday, holiday, event, etc. that I don't have time to run out and find a card for. The cards I received were absolutely beautiful with several different designs. I've actually already used one of them--perfect timing!

Sorial Business Card Holder

I have several businesses and things that I use separate business cards for, so this is perfect as I've been meaning to grab a second business card holder! I like that this one is ultra slim and won't take up a ton of room in my bag. Super cute and nice quality. It won't hold a huge amount of cards, but it's definitely great for keeping a handful on hand.

The Good Bean Fruit & No-Nut Bar

The Hubs already grabbed this and took it to work--and loved it! We're literally always on the go, whether for work or travel, so we keep an entire cabinet stocked with different travel-friendly snacks we can grab. This bar was a hit! Now I just have to find them in a store near us. ;)

Henri Bendel Travel Cosmetic Bag

I love the little travel toiletry bag from Henri Bendel. I'm a huge fan of structured bags and this one has a doctor-bag style hinge on the top that allows it to open up super wide once unzipped. My zipper was a bit funky on one side and wouldn't close all the way, but I'm assuming it was just a totally random thing!

Final Thoughts

As you can see, there was a huge volume of goodies in this month's box (as usual) and they're all perfect for summer travel. Of all the items, I think my favorites are the note cards (this girl loves stationary!), the business card holder and the cosmetic bag (assuming I can get the zipper to work for me lol).
