Ipsy — August 2016 Glam Bag “Sugar Highness”

Obviously, I’m quite late with my August Ipsy (referral link) bag. (The September Glam Bag post is on the way!) August was a busy month, with visitors coming and going, and baby Olive still in her second month of life.

She’s a total sweetheart, though. Looks just like her brother did at the same age, but with a dose of pixie. She’s got a bigtime appetite and loves to smile and coo from only one month. Plus, she’s already sleeping through the night at just under three months, which is why I’m no longer a zombie.

Back to Ipsy. August’s bag was a bit disappointing. It was a nice mix of products, but none of them were things I am especially keen to use. Some of it is quite expensive stuff, too, but still…eh.
