I'm beyond excited to kick start the New Year with an AMAZING giveaway! I've teamed up with one of my absolute favorite monthly beauty subscriptions GLOSSYBOX to give away one box to a lucky FMM reader! I subscribe to several monthly beauty boxes but can honestly tell you that the one I most look forward to each month is GLOSSYBOX.  First, it's the most luxurious out of all of my subscriptions.  Every month I am ensured a fabulous pink box, adorned with pretty ribbon.  When I undo the ribbon, I am always sure to find the most gorgeous products... many of them are full size  btw!  My latest GLOSSYBOX is just an example of just how fantastic this beauty box is!  I was especially stoked to find a full size Nails Inc. nail polish in the most  sensuous glossy deep wine hue. 

So let me walk you through my most recent GLOSSYBOX and show you just how uhhhh-mazing it really is!

OK so the Michael Todd Pumpkin Mask I'd already tried before and liked it.  I was excited to see it again in this month's GLOSSYBOX so that I could continue to pamper myself with this beauty!  This is a deluxe sample and lasts for several uses!

The Naobay Oxygenating Moisturizing Cream is fantastic.  It leaves your skin feeling hydrated, nourished and bonus... it smells wonderful!  Also, this is a fast absorbing moisturizer which means very little drying time.  It's excellent for quick applications right before applying your makeup!

The Anatomicals You Need a Blooming Shower makes for a delicious and slightly hilarious shower!  The name makes it a fun, relaxed product but the texture and scent make it a must have shower necessity!

Wink is a lash and eyebrow growth serum that I had not previously heard of.  I'm always curious about these types of products because I've relied on many of them to help boost my lash size.  Remember, I used to be a member of the itty bitty lash committee but things have improved since.  I'm hoping this baby helps me along!  I'm especially excited to see how it helps my barely there brows.

Now on to my FAVORITE product in the entire box... the GORGEOUS full size Nails Inc. nail polish in Victoria!  This deep wine shade is glossy and makes your nails look oh so sexy!  I think it's my new winter fave!

OK IF YOU WANT A GOOD LAUGH KEEP READING... so the other morning, I got out of the shower and still felt kind of awake.  So I reached for my eye serum, in the dark because I didn't want to wake my hubby up, opened the bottle, placed a few drops under my eyes and proceeded to massage the entire eye area.  As I massaged, I began to realize that this was not the same texture or smell as my current serum.  I quickly ran to the bathroom, turned on the lights and it was like a scene right out of American Horror Story!!!!  Yes, what I thought was eye serum was the NAILS INC. NAIL POLISH!!!!!  The bottles are identical and since I'd done my nails the night before, they were next to each other on my night stand!  I laughed, I cried, I panicked and then... I laughed some more!  I had no choice but to reach for my nail polish remover!  Yes, you read correctly!  I carefully and gently dabbed it all over this ultra sensitive area and hoped not to end up with a major reaction!  Interestingly enough, my skin looked amazing that day... hmmm... new skincare trend perhaps?!  haha well... I hope that you had a good laugh at my expense because this was truly one for the books! 

OK on to the important details... GLOSSYBOX is a monthly subscription service.  You can visit their website to sign up for your monthly boxes at $21 per month.  I've been a subscriber since they started their service in the US and I have yet to receive a box I didn't love!  FYI - box spoiler alert... a little birdie told me that Beauty Blender make make an appearance in January boxes!  I'm over the moon with excitement!!!  Oh and boys.... GLOSSYBOX has officially launched a men's box this month so hurry up and get in on the action!
