BoxyCharm: October Box

Overnight Lip Mask

Retail Price $20

My lips get so dry once the weather gets cold, so this came at the perfect time! I tried it out as soon as I opened the box and loved how soft and moisturized it made my lips feel. It is a little thick and sticky feeling, but I can get past that since it works so well.


Resurfacing Face Serum

Retail Price $70

I decided to gift this one to my mom because I already have more skin care products than I can use!


Makeup Remover Towelettes

Retail Price $20

These makeup removing towelettes aren’t horrible, but I don’t love them either. They are soft, but have a smell that I don’t like. I would not pay $20 a pack for these.


Spackle Skin Perfecting Primer: Hydrate

Retail Price $32

I just got a primer last month, so I’m not opening this one up until I finish that one.


Milk & Honey Highlighting Palette

Retail Price $38

This palette is beautiful! I don’t use highlighter on a daily bases, but I will use it. I got a similar palette last month, but I like this one better.

Overall, I didn’t love this month’s box. I did like it enough to feel like I got my money worth, but I was disappointed to get very similar items two months in a row. If you get have a subscription, I’d love to hear what you thought of this month’s box!

A Boat For Santa

A Boat For Santa

I know we haven’t even shared any Halloween crafts this year, but as my preschooler and I were talking about modes of transportation, she decided to talk about ways Santa might get around. It was a wonderfully creative conversation. After talking about it, she wanted to make Santa’s boat. It turned out super cute, so I wanted to share it!

Materials Used

Paper Plate

Red Paint

Brown Construction Paper

Decorative Paper

Paint Brush



Craft Sand

I started by cutting a paper plate in half. After that, I gave my daughter red paint to paint the paper plate.

While we waited for the paint to dry, I drew a rectangle on the brown construction paper and a triangle on the back of the decorative paper for my preschooler to cut out.

Once the plate was completely dry, we flipped it over and glued the rectangle onto the back. Next, we flipped it back and glued the triangle onto the rectangle.

To finish the boat, my daughter made three circles with glue. I helped her pour the sand onto the plate. This part was messy, but so much fun! If you want a less messy option, you could use black construction paper.

The end result of our spur of the moment craft project was a magical boat fit for Santa!
