Boxycharm Subscription Box: January 2018 Unboxing

Boxycharm is a beauty subscription box that costs $21 per month. They feature makeup, skin care, and hair care products, and their website states that they send 4 to 5 full-sized or luxury-sized beauty products in each box. The company guarantees the box value to be over $100. Boxycharm is my all time favorite subscription box. If I had to get rid of all of my boxes but one (what a sad world THAT would be), I would keep Boxycharm without thinking twice.     For me, no other box delivers the fantastic value of Boxycharm. Every month I...

Ipsy Subscription Box: January 2018 Unboxing

Ipsy is a fantastic monthly subscription box, created by beauty influencer Michelle Phan, as well as Marcelo Camberos and Jennifer Goldfarb. It’s been around since 2011, and is the very first subscription box I ever tried back in 2015. When you sign up, you complete a beauty profile quiz, which determines the products you receive in your bag. Some subscribers don’t think the quiz makes much of a difference, but I have noticed I almost never get hair products, which was what I specifically stated in my beauty quiz that I didn’t want. It seems like they’re listening.  ...

Bring It Like a Broad: See the World Through Madelyn May’s Lens

It’s that time again, Broads! Last month we introduced a new interview series here on The Bonafide Broad called Bring it Like a Broad! Each month, this series features a real life Broad who inspires those around her, by doing the extraordinary everyday. We hope that celebrating these special ladies and their accomplishments will help each of us to believe in the possibility and the reality of our own goals and dreams.     In case you missed it, our December Broad was Grace Garfield. She is a totally rad 20-year-old who founded A Helping Hand Global, a nonprofit that creates Feminine Care Kits for women in need, and is expanding to do so much more! The response was awesome, and confirmed to us that we are on the right track with this series. It’s time to introduce our January Broad!   The Broad Meet Madelyn May.   Madelyn taking a self-portrait   She is not only one of the most driven, determined, and inspiring Broad’s I’ve ever met, but I also have the privilege of being related to her. She is my cousin. Madelyn and I spent quite a bit of time together before my parents were divorced, when we were girls. I have always reserved a special space in my heart for her, and I knew from a young age that she was different. She was going...

Make It Yourself: Grammy’s Winter Bread

As the cold of winter sets in in the Pacific Northwest, us Washingtonians are hunkering down for the rain-filled season of gloom and grey. With the weather, comes my inevitable craving for good, old fashioned vittles.  For our cozy crew, this means herb crusted pork roasts and mashed potatoes, Dutch ovens full of piping hot soup, mulled wine by the gallon, and one of my (new) favorites… warm, crusty, buttered bread. Now, I have to come clean on this one… the majority of the cuisine that comes out of my kitchen has been perfected over the course of many...
