I've always wanted to try Ipsy and after hearing so many things about it, some positive and some not so positive, I finally gave in and purchased my very first bag. Luckily, I didn't have to be put on any waiting list and received my bag shortly after ordering. Here is my review of my first Ipsy bag. Is an Ipsy bag actually worth $10 a month? Here are the five products I received and my opinions of the products; all of my opinions are honest and are not sponsored (although, I wish)!
I'll never forget the day I was in the hospital room as my mother's doctor explained to her the severity of her cancer diagnosis as well as the very small odds of surviving such an intense and advanced form. I was only 17 and my mother was only 42. By looking at my mother, how much effort she put into everyday and raising six children, you would have never guessed she was sick. In fact, I think she was surprised as she only went to the doctor with a pain in her right side. It was colon cancer, stage IV, that had spread to her liver. The doctors seemed genuinely surprised as colon cancer is usually found in older patients. But, no matter how rare the situation, my mother was one of the unlucky few and I knew I was probably going to lose my mother and soon. My mother passed away a year later, shortly after my senior graduation and suddenly, the world turned into an unfamiliar place, one I didn't know if I would ever come to terms with. I'm going to start this with my advice to those who have lost their mothers and then to those who have not. I feel like both sides are equally important and may, hopefully, be helpful to someone.
