IPSY Glam Bag: December 2013

When IPSY (formerly known as MyGlam) first started, I was super excited and joined. If you're unfamiliar with it, IPSY is a monthly beauty subscription where, for $10 a month, you receive 4-5 full size products or deluxe size samples, and is meant for subscribers to try new beauty products. A few months after signing up, I stopped subscribing as the products that I received were just not products that seemed worth it to buy and I was trying to cut down on my monthly bills.

However, recently, I've been really liking what they've been sending out subscribers were and wow, they seriously stepped up their game!

The Rest of: New York

I have been so bad at updating. Sorry! What I'm more sorry about is not writing down all the facts and instances before they slipped out of my memory bank and into the abyss. At least these photos help jog some memories.

Because of the already lack of updates, I'll just put all the NY into one post.

New York: Chelsea Flower District


In my last post, I mentioned that I really wanted to check out Chelsea's flower district on our first day in the City. But since Joseph surprised me with a bouquet of gorgeous white roses, there really wasn't a need to rush over to get flowers. I ended up going by myself at 6:30am to check out the area.

New York: The Hotel

For some reason, it seemed like a good idea to introduce the New York trip with Central park instead of the hotel. Yeah, I can be a little backwards sometimes...

Anyway, we stayed a block away from Times Square at Hilton Garden Inn. It was a fairly standard hotel, with the only lure being its prime location as we were close to so much attractions on our list. Unfortunately, our stay there didn't start off very well.

New York: Central Park

For the better part of last week, Joseph and I toured New York City. I have never been to the other part of the country and this trip excited me so much. We stayed in the City for four days and basically hit all the hot tourist spots.

We stopped by Central Park a couple of times, but the place is just so huge! So we basically just treaded the outskirts of the park. I loved the atmosphere of the park - huge growing trees, skyscrapers visible in the distance, and runners and cyclists on the pavement. We really wanted to go row-boating, as it seemed like SUCH a peaceful activity, but the line was actually pretty massive.
