Ipsy November Glam Bag Review & Glam Bag Giveaway
Hi crafters! Today I am blogging about something that is not craft related but I LOVE this company so much and I hope after reading this post that you will too. The company I am talking about is called ipsy. I love ipsy so much that I wanted to share this with all of you in case you have not heard of it before or if you have not yet signed up to receive a monthly glam bag.
ipsy is an amazing company that is subscription based and for a mere $10.00 a month, and that includes shipping and handling by the way or you could say that the shipping is free, but each month you will receive an adorable makeup bag filled with superb quality makeup products, hair care products, face products and everything else you can think of. Each month/glam bag is different. I have been an ipsy subscriber for awhile now and I have no plans of cancelling anytime soon. By receiving different products from ipsy this allows you to sample different products and brands without the fear of spending a ton of money on one product that you have never used before and being afraid that you will not like it or that it will not look good on you.

Look at ALL you get for $10.00...all of the photo's posted here today are all of the products that I received in my glam bag for the month of November.
Below is a list and close up photos of the products that were in my bag. Each ipsy bag may have the exact same products or you may receive a few different products then other members.  This difference can be based on your preferences when you first sign up.

Ok, so this month I got a lip product from the company "be a bombshell" and the color is called "hot damn".
It's a red lip crayon.
Next is from the company "nailtini" & it's a gorgeous nail polish in color caviar cocktail. The best way I can describe the color is that it is a beautiful silver metallic, not too dark and not too light.
This next product is by "bh cosmetics" galaxy chic baked eyeshadow in the color eclipse. This eye shadow comes in a really cute flip top box with a magnetic lid and the color kind of looks like a shimmery light purple. It could be darker purple once you put it on but like I said I am not 100% sure yet as I have not tried it because I just received it today. I can say that the color is really gorgeous. I am not one for super bold or dark eye shadow colors but I am excited to try this color.
This picture makes this eye shadow look green but I promise you that it is not green. It's a soft metallic purple color. So please ignore the color in this picture.
Last of the products is an absolutely beautiful bronzer by "pixi" and the color is called subtly suntouched.
Below is a "Star Looks" eye pencil/eye liner in the color amethyst. I did not unwrap it so I cannot describe the color. Sorry about that!
The next product is a sheer lipstick lip gallery by ".em Michelle Phan" in the color cabana beige
(I really love this color, it's so pretty on).
This does not show the color correctly but I wanted to try and show you what the color sort of looks like. It looks sheer on me, it's very natural looking.
Every single product is gorgeous and I didn't even get to the make-up bag that comes packed with all your products every single month. This month's bag, shown above, is a gold color embossed bag with hot pink lining and hot pink zipper with a gold embossed wrist handle. I would consider it a wristlet and it is so darn precious. If you want to or need to run somewhere really quick and you don't want to carry your purse and all that us girls stuff in them you certainly could use the wristlet/bag as just that....a wristlet.  My purse is probably close to 20 pounds and I am not even kidding. You know how girls want to carry absolutely everything but never seem to need any of it? Well that's totally me and I know that I am not alone! :)
If all of that was not enough, every month you will always get coupons with your ipsy glam bag. For example this month you will get 30% off all product purchases from
Every month is different as one month you may get coupon codes for certain companies, usually the coupon codes match the products that are in your glam bag or like this month you get 30% off all products from It will always be a little double sided card or cards like the two pictured above.
Oh, and how can I forget the adorable girly ipsy packaging?? Every glam bag is always is delivered to you in a hot pink bubble wrapped envelope which is SO cute, so girly and just so cute! You see the packaging above. Too cute!Oh, and how can I forget the adorable girly ipsy packaging?? Every glam bag is always is delivered to you in a hot pink bubble wrapped envelope which is SO cute, so girly and just so cute! You see the packaging above and what it looks like inside the package when you open it. Too cute!
This may sound weird to some of you but I actually save all of my envelopes for later use when I mail something to someone that I love or care about. They are just too cute to just throw away plus it's completely reusable so why not save them and re-use them when you need a cute envelope??!!
Just throw a new label on top of the old label and you are all set to go and you saved money to boot!
Plus, it is a great way to recycle and help the earth and I am always trying to do my part.
Here are a few close up pictures of the glam bag all together.

   This month they are having a one year ipsy glam bag giveaway. If you post a pic of your ipsy goodies either on ipsy instagram (make sure to follow directions carefully and include #ipsy with your picture) or if you don't have instagram you can post your picture on ipsy facebook for a chance to win a one year glam bag subscription.
Of course I already posted mine, fingers and toes crossed!

Even though this has nothing to do with crafting I really wanted to share this with you all. Every girl deserves some amazing goodies and to get them every month makes it even better.  You are probably wondering how to sign up for this amazing deal? Well it's so easy...just go to and click on become a member. You will have a series of questions, don't worry as this is super easy and really fast. Ipsy wants to know what products and brands you love the most and after selecting your favorites enter your personal info and credit card or payment method and voila you are signed up. That's when the fun begins. 

I really hope that you all enjoyed this post and in closing I do want to mention that I do NOT get anything in return ever for sharing this even if you sign up and I am never paid (unless posted or sponsored) for my opinions or paid for posting about companies such as ipsy. If I LOVE a product or service I really love to share it with those that I care about and that happens to be every single one of you.

Oh, one more can absolutely cancel at any time without being penalized. That is important to me as I don't like contracts for things like this. If you happen to sign up I would love to hear from you or after you receive your first ipsy bag.
I would LOVE to know how you love your glam bags. 
So please feel free to leave me a comment anytime because as you all know I always love hearing from you all. 

Tomorrow I am going to share one AMAZING, crazy and insane deal that I found yesterday while out shopping so be on the lookout for that. This is related to crafting, well stamping to be exact and it's an incredible deal that I got. Honestly, I still can't believe it and because of this amazing deal I am gonna have a craft supply goodie bag giveaway!! 
 Until then....

Free Custom Made Subway Art....

Subway art is one of the hottest things that people love to create and display either in their home, on wood or canvas, clothing, online or whatever else you can imagine. Today I stumbled upon a website that allows you to create a free subway type art with whatever words you want and any color combo your heart desires. Since this website is brand new to me I wanted to play around with it and honestly it was very easy to get the hang of. I created a few different styles to share with you just to show you a little bit of what this website can do. With your imagination, creativity and some inspiration the sky is the limit. Now I did not spend too much time on these but you get the idea here.  

This one is just repeated over and over.

With this one I just typed in different words that goes with the type of crafts I make. Imagine printing something like this and framing it in a pretty frame and hanging it up in your crafting space or where ever you would like to put it. 

With this one is obviously just TwoPinkPeas again in a square shape. I was just playing with the different colors and shapes. They do have a certain amount of shapes on their website but you are able to upload any shape you wish off the internet if they do not have what you are looking for have what you are looking for. 

With this last one I created for my little girl Hallie. I thought of words that described her personality, things that she is into right now and things that she loves like music, school and the sport that she is into right now. Thinking about it now I totally forgot to add that she is in band but this is for show only so its no big deal. I cant believe that I forgot that one though....oops! Sorry Hallie! 

To make one of these for yourself just go to this website which is called Tagxedo and create away but most of all have FUN! You can also click on any of the pictures above to take you to Tagxedo.
One more thing, this website allows you to save your creations to your computer so you can print them later if you decide or place them on your blog, Pinterest, Facebook or where ever you would like to share them. 

Until next time...
