It’s time for another Thursday Thoughts! If you want to participate, but have no idea what a link-up is, you can check out my explanation of it here.

~I can’t believe that this week is almost over!  How is that possible?  We were suppose to be getting ready for our weekend garage sale, but umm, that so hasn’t happened.  Instead L and B went to the County Fair last night while WB and I played at home.  I suppose it will all come together though because, well, it has to.

He'd be a good farm kid.

~I caught up on the last few episodes of The Real Housewives of Orange County this week wow, what a mess.  I totally believe that Tamra said all that stuff and that Lizzie is telling the truth.  I can’t wait for next week’s episode.  And the reunion should be a total disaster.  I read somewhere that it’s the least exciting of the series, but I still love it.

I think I like Shannon.

~In case you missed it last night, GLOSSYBOX has just launched a new Limited Edition Box called the “Beauty Discovery GLOSSYBOX“. It’s $40 and includes everything pictured below. I am on the fence on this one.  Had they just announced a Limited Edition box and not released the contents I would have jumped all over it and then would have been super excited to get these items when it arrived.  It makes no sense, but that’s what I would have though!

~I am still expecting quite a few boxes this week including my Birchbox for CEW boxes, ispy, a Memebox, my regular Birchbox, Bespoke Post, Furry Friends Club and Dottiebox Mini.  bluum, Citrus Lane, Kiwi Crate and a few more are on their way, but I don’t expect to see them until next week!

~I’ve been getting a bunch of questions about this and I only wish I knew when the Allure Fall Beauty Box would be going on sale.  I am actually surprised that it hasn’t happened yet because last year I HAD my box by August 10th!  Hopefully we hear something soon because it’s driving me nuts as well.  I want to be ready!

~My attempts at going to bed “early” (i.e. by the end of Fallon at the latest) have been a complete failure.  But with Back to School happening soon, I need to make it happen.  So I downloaded the “Go To Bed” reverse alarm clock iPhone app.  Umm, there is an app for everything.  I will report back on it next Thursday after I have had a chance to use it for a week.



~I am still working on my Fall Giveaway selections but I have a general idea of what I am doing so I should have it posted within the next few days!  Maybe Saturday?

    I’ve been having trouble with your newsletter – I signed up about a week ago and haven’t received anything yet. I just wanted to make sure I didn’t mess up somehow. I use gmail. Thanks!

    I totally feel the same way about that Limited Edition Glossybox. It’s all about the surprise. Even though I always spoil it before I get it! I think it’s the excitement of stalking blogs, MUT, Instagram for the spoilers that I really love. If I know the contents ahead of time it’s just not as fun! Crazy I know 🙂

    Do you (or anyone else on here) get the kids’ box Googaro, or have you in the past? I got a deal on one from PlumDistrict (I think) last month. Got a shipping notice from them a week ago, but the tracking number doesn’t seem to work anywhere. It says it’s through like DHL ground parcel mail, or something like that. Just wondering if anyone else had experience with them and how long their shipping usually takes before I contact them to see about the tracking.

    I’m so spoiled by Amazon Prime and their fast shipping and good tracking! So many sub boxes seem to end up in shipping limbo for a while.

      • Jill

        They didn’t give me a link I could click on, and I couldn’t get the tracking number to turn up on DHL’s site. I just tried again with USPS, and it’s now showing up and is in Illinois (today is the first date listed, even though it supposedly shipped a week ago). I’m in MD, so I guess it will take a few more days. At least I know where it is now!

        Also, it looks like both Ipsy and Wantable Intimates have arrived at my local post office, so maybe those will come tomorrow!

        • Jill

          Well…I got my Ipsy. But the only things in the package were the mascara and a little info card! The other four items, plus the bag, were missing! (I thought it felt awfully light). They don’t usually send stuff out separately, right? I e-mailed their customer care. Sigh.

          On the plus side, my replacement Wantable Accessories box came, and it’s soooo much better than the last one! Apparently I just had to pick gold instead of silver! Three pretty necklaces and a ring that’s a little small, but seems a bit adjustable, so I can probably make it work. At least I have one success so far this month! Sigh…

    • Swati

      Yeah same with me Jill. My box shipped out a week ago and DHL shipping updates don’t seem to be working. No idea when the box will arrive. I have a few other items I recently ordered that are shipping via DHL but same problem with the tracking not working there too.

    I was doing good with the going to bed earlier but last night it was almost 1 again. 🙁 I’m feeling it today especially after spending the morning at the pool with C. M is working tonight too so I’m thinking it will be an easy pizza party kindof night.

  • Hilary

    I think Tamra said most of that stuff but I think Lizzie just keeps adding and changing the gossip too much so that it seems Lizzie is making some of it up. Either way I think they are both wrong, Tamra shouldn’t have said it but Lizzie is just as wrong by repeating it.

    I signed up for the allure beauty box “pre-sale” back when it was offered and I received this email a couple of weeks ago:

    Dear Allure Beauty Box Pre-Sale Member,
    Thanks again for purchasing all three 2014 Allure Beauty Boxes!
    We wanted to let you know that we’ve moved our August Beauty Box to be timed with our September issue so you’ll have all of your beauty necessities for fall. Your box should arrive around the first week of September.
    Please email by AUGUST 4 if you have any questions or if your shipping address has changed since April.
    Yours in beauty,
    The Allure Beauty Enthusiasts Team

    So, it sounds like the boxes will go on sale around the end of Aug/early Sept. Last time my “pre-sale” box was shipped the same day after the box went on sale to all, and it arrived about 5 days later.
