There’s nothing like a free Sephora Beauty Insider Birthday Gift to get you enticed to buy some new beauty goodies. I generally don’t need much of a nudge to load my online cart but those fab freebies definitely help! Here’s what’s got me obsessed this month (click the product links to buy):
I decided to splurge a little and treat myself to some of the items off of my Holiday Gift Guide. I also ended up getting some other new beauty goodies as gifts from my friends and family (they know my product obsession too well!), which I’ve had some time to test out. Drumroll please…
If you missed Part 1 of my Rosewood Mayakoba review, you may not know that I am obsessed with this place! It truly is a feast for the eyes and for the tummy! Some of THE best food I have eaten in my life! Then again, I always say yes to Mexican food so perhaps my heaven truly does exist here on Earth.
Here are my reviews of the eateries around the Mayakoba / Playa Del Carmen / Tulum/ Riviera Maya area that we tried out:

The most apropos point I can think of starting my travel reviews is with the place that was the catalyst for this blog: Rosewood Mayakoba in Playa Del Carmen, Mexico. This was the final stop on our perfect honeymoon, which was the perfectly planned ending to a magical trip. This was no accident that I picked this place. I did my research and was handsomely rewarded and thensome. Some of the phrases that come to mind immediately when thinking of the Rosewood Mayakoba? Pure relaxation, over-the-top luxury, beachside heaven, jungle paradise, best food of my life! (although I am partially biased because I am the biggest sucker for amazing Mexican food & seafood), plunge pools
I have a confession to make. I am a “Beauty Junkie” who is willing to buy any and every product imaginable in search of THE best beauty products that money can buy. That makes me the ultimate guinea pig and a dream customer for the beauty industry. I am in constant pursuit of those miracle products; if they exist, trust I will find them! No need for you to spend unnecessarily on products that won’t get the job done if I am already doing it.

Once upon a time there was a girl named Evro-Nicole Dimitrius, or “Nikki” as her family and friends called her, who decided to start a beauty, travel & lifestyle blog. She named it after her mythical alter ego “The Glossfox”, a beauty-addicted, wanderlusting shopaholic of a creature.
So that’s how the storybook version began… Now here’s the real scoop:
I am a half-Greek/half-German LA native currently enjoying loft living in fabulous DTLA with my husband (feels crazy writing that since we JUST got married!) Albert or “C” for short. When I’m not trying to find a way to travel more, I spend my time in LA exploring the city on foot or bike, working out (mainly just so I can enjoy what I eat & drink, although a better healthier bod is always a plus!), opening boxes from my online shopping habit much to Albert’s disgust, adventuring and laughing with my fam & friends, cheering on Trojan football, drooling over fashion inspo on social media, making a million “To Do” lists, dancing any chance I get, postponing cleaning out my closet, and of course, supporting all of my addictions by working my 9-5 as a real estate broker.
Why Was This Blog Created? This blog came about after our honeymoon. Albert convinced me that after I successfully pulled off our dream destination wedding and subsequent beyond perfect honeymoon that I was a travel and planning “expert”. I know, I know… he has a biased perspective since he is generally the beneficiary of all that A+ planning.
