{Birchbox | July}

July's Birchbox was everything I thought these boxes would be. I absolutely loved the Harvey Prince fragrance and every other perfume they have sent me so far and the Stila lip glaze. I don't wear makeup very often or change my haircare products, so the bronzer and hair masque went to a friend... which she gives "two thumbs up" for both of them. Being completely honest, the earbuds and Larabar got tossed into my bag and forgotten about... that is until a week ago when I went to get the oil changed in my car after work. Having earbuds is a must when you are sitting in a waiting room with five other people. And when you take lunch at 11AM during the work week, it is a guarantee you will be hungry by the time 4:30PM rolls around. Needless to say, I was so thankful I had dropped these items in my bag after taking this picture at the beginning of July.

After conferring with some friends, we have determined since turning 30 we have started to fall apart. I have never had health issues of any kind. So, I have always felt sympathy toward my family and friends who suffers from them. More specifically allergies. But I could never fully understand what they were going through... until now. Recently, I have developed some major allergies... which SUCKS, by the way. I think having allergies suddenly "jump on" you as an adult is the worst because you haven't had any experience in dealing with them.
These five things are what I have been enjoying this week while losing the battle but winning the war on allergies...

{Three Sprinkles of Grey | EBEW}

It's that time again for Everybody Everywear... and this month we are talking monochromatic. Like most people, the only color I wear from head-to-toe is black. Once the voting results were in with monochrome as the winner, my first thought was I have to wear something brighter... However, as usual, life happens and my bright monochromatic look changed to a much darker one.
I really like how all of this grey came together although the reason I wore this outfit and that there is only one picture of it is definitely a sad one.

{Extras | Movie Faves... Musical Disney Movies}

Disney movies... musical or non-musical, it doesn't matter... LOVE!! Now I can not say that I love them all because... well, I have not seen them all and I think the movies made prior to 1995 are substantially better than the newer ones. These are not only my top five favorite musical Disney movies but my favorite songs in those movies... 

{1. Mary Poppins. I watched this movie so much as a kid, I still remember all the dialogue and every song.}

{2. Bedknobs & Broomsticks. Flying beds and talking animals? Talk about right up my alley.}

{3. Robin Hood. This was the only movie I watched as a kid that my siblings weren't completely annoyed that I was watching yet again.}

{4. Pete's Dragon. It was a tough to choice between this song, Brazzle Dazzle Day, and Bill of Sale.}

{5. The Gnome-Mobile. As a kid, my oldest brother 9 years older had me completely convinced there were Gnomes that lived in the woods near my childhood home. Jerk. Ha!!}
