Archives for July 2015

If you aren’t familiar with this box, you need to get familiar. It is by far
the best subscription box if you like a good mixture of must have items (read:
not just beauty products and make up). There’s usually a bit of that thrown in,
but you honestly never know what you’re going to get. In the 3 months that I have
subscribed to this box, I’ve gotten everything from sunglasses…to books…to
necklaces…to candy… and it’s all really great stuff! Pop Sugar does such a good
job of identifying the latest trends and the newest “it” brands for that
particular month – so you will literally be counting down the days until your box arrives. It’s seriously the best day of the month!
Here’s a little run down of the July box…
Pretty awesome haul, right? I just can’t get over it. The cute little cards on the right are from the Hallmark Signature Collection. I am obsessed with stationary, so I was super happy to get these!
When I opened up the box and saw this adorable Henri Bendel cosmetic bag, I may have let out a squeal and scared my husband. This alone is worth the price of the entire box! It even came with a coupon for 20% off any full priced item on Henri Bendel’s website (pictured next to the bag). I have decided the coupon is so cute I am going to frame it and put it in my closet. Way too cute to throw away!
I was also super excited to see this Supergoop Setting Mist in the box. I have been wanting to try a setting mist for a while now, but just haven’t taken the leap and purchased one. Now I can try it out! This mist not only sets your make up, but it controls oil and has SPF 50. I love Supergoop products, so I am sure I will love this.
I have never heard of this brand, but this little card case is so cute and they have some really great handbags and leather goods on their website. I’ve actually been needing a new card case that’s small enough to fit inside one of my wristlets. This is just perfect! And the pop of red is much needed since I have a tendency to buy a lot of neutrals. I couldn’t find this card case on the Sorial website, but I am eyeing another item that I might just have to purchase soon: the Gramercy Envelope Clutch.
I don’t think I’ve ever been excited about a toothbrush, but I can honestly say I can’t wait to use this Pop Dental Portable Sonic Toothbrush. It’s so sleek, and has 22,000 vibrations per minute. My teeth need this for sure.
a beauty swap. This was my very first swap so I wasn’t really sure what to
expect. I could not have had a better experience, and I had so much fun getting
to know these girls!
a lovely little blog (Oh Daisy Love) and a YouTube channel packed with beauty
and fashion videos. We got to know each other a bit before the swap and found
out we have very similar taste in makeup and style. She is just the sweetest
thing, and let me tell ya, she knocked this beauty swap out of the park!
one million polka dots (my fave) and lots of gold and pink (also my fave). Inside,
there was a sweet card from Nancy along with two little bags filled with goodies.
me some Maybelline Lash Sensational in Black Pearl. I tried it this morning and
it on one of her videos, so I was stoked to see it in my package. We hadn’t
even talked about that before the swap (good job, Nancy!).
These little guys are gorgeous, and they are very wearable pinks. I’ll be
carrying these with me in my purse for sure.
Benetint and Benebalm. Benefit is one of my favorite brands, and of course I am
a sucker for their packaging. The Benetint is a cheek and lip stain. I haven’t
tried it on my cheeks yet, but I am loving it on my lips! The Benebalm is great
over the Benetint or on its own. I just can’t get enough of it!
the mail, I had just as much fun picking out products for the blogger I was
paired up with – Jasmine Eclipse. If you haven’t checked out her blog (Flux +Flow), you must do so! She lives an adventurous life in Maui, and her posts
will definitely inspire you.
for some major style inspiration.
am grateful to have connected with this amazing group of bloggers and can’t
wait to do another swap!
my closet/vanity area/dressing room/whatever you want to call it in order for
about a month now. The big purchases are out of the way, and now I am just
adding some finishing touches to make it the perfect space.
Josefina Fernandez Illustrations. As soon as I saw her work, I knew I had to
have one of her fashion illustrations in my closet! She is so talented, and I
am sure I will be purchasing more pieces down the road (I seriously want them
This is the print I chose for a few reasons. We have similar hair color, and I absolutely LOVE rainy days! I would actually choose a
rainy day over a sunny day – and yes, I realize this is weird to most people.
Anyway, isn’t she gorgeous?!
I think this is just so perfect for a closet, bedroom, office, or any place you
want to add a stylish, feminine touch. You
can get coffee mugs and luggage tags with her illustrations on them, and if you
want to go all out, you can have Josefina make a custom illustration that
reflects you and your own personal style.
