I know this Birchbox review is LONG over due but I had to put my health and several priorities first, but now I can sit down and focus to tell everyone my thoughts on this October theme featured box which is "revive and restore" which is great with the craziness of our Fall activities at home, school, or work!

I have tried several Avene skincare products before but I instantly love this Avene Hydrance Optimale Hydrating Creme RICH (Full-size $32) which I used day and night for my dry to dryer skin thanks to the Fall weather!! I also used this cream under my makeup for Lynchburg College Homecoming Gala on Friday evening and tailgating on Saturday with my son!

While prepping for my college homecoming, I experienced my first ever Glam glow skincare item which is the GLAMGLOW POWERMUD Dualcleanse Treatment (Full-size $69) which was a mask you wear for 5 to 10 minutes before using it as a facial scrub in the shower to remove impurities and pesky dry flakes on my dry facial skin! Its pricey but it gets the job done!

For fall weather, I need moisturizing elements in my makeup and this  MAKE Silk Cream Lipstick in "Magnolia" (Full-size $25) deliver beneficial ingredients in this beautiful pink shade!! Wore this lipstick for before and after my homecoming!

I love receiving Oribe haircare samples via my monthly Birchbox but enjoyed using this  Oribe Gold Lust Dry Shampoo (Full-size $44) esp after attending a warm tailgating event at homecoming but too tired to wash my hair ...again and too soon for my dry scalp/diverse hair!! Plus, this dry shampoo carries the signature Oribe scent which I love!! Great for dry hair/scalp, dark hair, and relaxed hair types!

This is one of the items that I also wanted to tried out because I could no longer find my fave Febreeze Night Lavender Spray for a good night sleep...I used this spray all week including to welcome relaxation and a good night sleep!

Using both the RICH cream and Pillow spray the night before the Lynchburg College Homecoming!! Goodnight and hello beauty rest! :)

I personally give this October theme Birchbox a "Five out of Five Stars" because I simply enjoyed using all of these products for my skincare, makeup, hair, and lifestyle needs including prepping for my college homecoming weekend!!

I had such positive feedback on which dress to wear at the Alumni Gala Dinner and Awards and I chose my trusty LBD above by Jessica McClintock with the flowing white detailed and jewel piece to the front!! Thankfully, I received good remarks on this "cocktail attire" for the gala dinner without feeling under or over dressed!

Since I was attending the gala award dinner by myself but a group of wise women encourage me to celebrate homecoming and all I have accomplished during my college experience!! So I did my hair at home but went for a sleek look thanks to this Oribe style cream which you can used wet and dry styling!!

Since my college colors are predominating RED, I decided to paint my nails using "Tigeress Knows Best" by Morgan Taylor for my homecoming weekend!!

Although I was one of the few class members of 2011 to attend at our first class reunion, I want to thank the warm reception from former professors, staff, and alumni that made feel "Welcome" and that we are all Hornets!!

Until next time...
