Its that time!  Time to pop open the pretty pink package and see what Ipsy has for me this month.



Love this bag!  It is so cute 🙂

Lara Says::

This is a new brand to me and I’m guessing by the name based in Hawaii as I’m pretty sure hanalei means to make a lei.  (Update:: I was right! ) This has a nice sweet scent and feels great on my lips!
