Stitches Update and a Marc Jacobs VoxBox

My stitches are out! I could scream this from the rooftops if I could. It feels SO much better now. The process of taking them out, not so much. It even hurt when they put the cleaning solution on it. And the stitches. Ouch. But they are all gone, and I have an infection as I suspected. So now I am on antibiotics (again) and I am hoping it clears up enough in 3 to 4 days (on meds for 10 days). My shoulder is still sore, but so much better than yesterday. Now onto healing. And lifting weights again.

In other news, I recently received a #voxbox from Influenster and this one was a good one. I received the Marc Jacobs Velvet Noir Mascara. First, I love make-up and second, I love Marc Jacobs products. But I had never tried their make-up. Heck, I don't think I knew they made make-up. I love their perfumes though.
 The brush so you can see the color, shape and size

Once I received my #voxbox, I used it the next morning and I loved the results. Please excuse the awful selfies below.
Before (only part of my eyes on)

I love the color (black), how it lengthens my lashes so much (gives me a little feeling of my old extensions), volumizes, separates (thanks to the great brush) and gets in the inner corners of my eyes (again thanks to the brush). 

I had bought a mascara a week or so before I received the Marc Jacobs mascara, and I haven't used my other one since. I love this mascara. I can't wait to try out other Marc Jacobs make-up.

* I received the items complimentary from Influenster to test and review. All opinions are my own.


  1. Looks beautiful! Love it :) so glad to hear the stitches are out. Hope it doesn't hurt much longer and the infection heals quickly!

    1. Thank you! The infection is getting better, but still hurts. I am hoping it heals more in the next day or so, otherwise I am back for another check up and stronger antibiotics.

  2. Yay for the stitches being out, but ouch on the infection. That just sucks. Hopefully it'll all feel better soon. The mascara looks really nice. It's always nice to find makeup you really love.
