My first Birchbox!

I have been contemplating whether or not I should give in to the birchbox craze and after a while I decided I would!

I finally got my pretty pink birchbox in the mail and I was oh so excited to rip it open!

I had seen people posting pictures of their May boxes which were all Gossip Girl themed so I was sure that I would be getting just the same as others but I was wrong! I guess because it was my first box I got different stuff!

This is what I got in my box (you can read about the products on the card)

Archipelago - Pomegranate Body Soap (Full Size $12.60) check it out here
Benta Berry - G-1 Exfoliating Facial Cleanser (Full Size $16) check it out here
Jouer - Moisturizing Lip Gloss in Birchbox Pink (Full Size $20) check it out here
Kerastase - Elixir Ultime (Full Size $54) check it out here
Show Stoppers - Designer Fashion Tape (24 strips for $9.99) check it out here

I am excited to try these out and can't wait to see what I get in my next one!

What I'm Loving Wednesday

I am loving that Memorial Day Weekend is quickly approaching which means it's the official kick off that summer is here!

I am loving the new Skinny Girl Pina Colada. I was expecting it to have that fake sugary taste but it's actually beyond amaze. Clearly it will be a summer staple along with my Skinny Girl Margarita

I am always loving Pinterest and the many amazing ideas and creations I find on there. Just like this one, how cute?!

I am loving all things mint colored *all via Pinterest*

Hope you have a wonderful Wednesday!

Turkey Chili

I am a big lover of chili! I could eat it on the reg and never get sick of it! I personally am not a huge fan of beef (but I do love me a good burger sometimes) so I wanted to find a turkey chili recipe to try!

I found this recipe online (don't remember where, sorry!) I followed it for the most part but made a few changes.

It's really easy to make! Cook the ground turkey meat in one pan, and sauté the onions & such in the other

I decided to add a red pepper in there as well!

Then you add the other ingredients to the onion mixture (I also added corn because I love corn in chili!)

Add all your spices (you can add more if you want it to have more of a kick)

Finally add the meat and cover it and smell its deliciousness as it cooks!

Recipe says let it simmer for 30 minutes but I let it simmer for about an hour, hour and fifteen minutes!

Added a lil sour cream and some cheese, and voila!

SO delish! :)

Get 'Blown Away'

So, I may have a major girl crush on Carrie Underwood. But this girl just dropped her new album Blown Away and it is beyond amaze!!! *not to mention she looks beyond gorg in all her album pics*

Seriously, I am in love with every track on the album! You all MUST check it out and listen to the lyrics cause they're sick.

I find myself putting Two Black Cadillacs and The Good in Goodbye on repeat x1000

Has anyone else fallen in love with this album yet? If not, run (not walk) and buy it or download it!

You'll love it as much as I do!!!
