Let's Get Lost: #FamilyPictureAugust

Part of the plan on our   vacation to Las Vegas  (which I haven't blog yet), was visiting the Grand Canyon.  It was a far drive but we enjoyed the road trip.  It was  the day of our anniversary when we went.  Vegas was  nice but it is so busy and was too hot that a day on the road would do us good.  We got up really early and head on to Arizona after  we ate breakfast
Driving through the desert-like  view makes me appreciate our state of West Virginia more with all it's green scenery.  There is something  about looking through absence of trees  that made me feel a little down but as my husband said "it's quite unique" so we  tried to just enjoy the ride.
We stopped by at Williams, Arizona for a restroom break and put on our anniversary shirts that says 14 Years and Still Enjoying the Ride.
 I should have brought my tripod but it takes a lot of space in the suitcase so I didn't.  Our daughter took these photos so she wasn't in the picture.  
 I am grateful that my  husband love to travel and  doesn't mind driving because we get to  go places.
Both hubby and I  have terrible sense of direction so having the GPS saves us from getting lost all the time.  We still get lost from time to time when the GPS is late in telling us  about the exit but it is part of the journey.  I thought the  theme for this month's BeautyBox5 box is perfect for us.  Nobody wants to get lost but hey when you are enjoying the ride, why not.  Let's Get Lost box has Luseta Beauty argan oil hair masque, Styli Style line and seal yeliner, Manna Kadar Cosmetics Glo illuminator, Seraphine Botanicals Quince and Crimson crayon, and Nanacoco Rio 2 nail polish.    
My favorites are the Argan oil hair masque and the nail polish.  The heat of the summer makes my hair  a bit dry so I  gave  it a treatment using the Argan oil mask and  it's awesome.  It makes my hair so soft that I can  just stroke it with my fingers and it looks like I  brushed it or straighten with a hair iron.

It's been a while since I painted my nails so I was glad to see a nail polish in this month's box.  The color of the nail polish  kind of matches my shoes!  If you enjoy what you see in the box, head on to BeautyBox5 and try their  subscription.  It's fun and affordable
