I know there are one million reviews on beauty boxes out there, some of them a bit hard to trust as people are sent boxes for free. I decided to try Birchbox after seeing a Christmas promotion where you got a free full size Ciate eyeliner pen.

Amy from ModCloth contacted me about a fun nail art challenge to “capture the essence” of one of their summer dresses. With the cutest prints around, I had a hard time choosing which one to go for!

I’m a researcher.
