The Perfect Fall Outfit

This little outfit is SO ME its not even funny. Tunic, leggings, scarf, boots this combo is basically my Fall uniform. What I love about this outfit is that it is SO easy to throw on and go. You just need to make sure your leggings aren’t see through, and your tunic covers your front and back. Nobody wants to see your bits and pieces while you are grocery shopping, or picking up your kids from school. Truth is power, and that is the TRUTH about leggings and tops.

I picked up this top in two colors during the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale, and I love it. BUT it wrinkles easily. So if that doesn’t bother you then this top is a great basic option to add to your wardrobe(personally its not that big of a deal). If a couple wrinkles makes you crazy then I would keep shopping. Green is SO in for Fall, and this shade is a fun option, I am pro matchy matchy so pairing this pastel green with my scarf and sunnies was a no brainer. The hat was a last minute thought, and its cute, but I will probably wear this outfit without it. Seriously I LOVE matching. A lot.

When I put this look on, my friend and photographer instantly said we needed to head to my garden. These photos were so fun to shoot. Lots of laughs, and my husbands potato box was my prop. Hahaha.

Glossybox September

Just a quick post today, checking in with my Glossybox subscription. Currently on the couch recovering from a fun filled Saturday night in Detroit at the Zac Brown Band concert.

WOW, has it really been 3 months since I posted about my first Glossybox? Well I have been happily receiving and enjoying my Glossybox subscription since finding out through a friend about this great service. I am so happy with my boxes. Glossybox subscription service is like a gift to myself every month, when the box arrives it is packaged so well that you really do feel like you are receiving a present. I am praticularly excited to try out The Revitalizer from Boissanse, and the Coffea body scrub!

What was in my box this month? Here’s the details!

  1. Coffea– 16.00 A coffee scrub that claims to clear up dry patches, stretch marks and poor circulation(cellulite).
  2. Julep Luxe Lip– 24.00 This lip gloss has a Zamac tip applicator that is cooling, This gloss soothes, hydrates and plumps lips. *Does not taste good.
  3. Boissanse The Revitalizer– 58.00 This emollient replenishes and hydrates the skin, This facial moisturizer can be used all over your body.
  4. Emité Artist Colour Powder Blush– 22.00 This blush utilizes mica an ancient mineral that is used for its light reflecting properties.
  5. Nails Inc Uptown Nail Polish– 14.00 Nails Inc has created a lacquer that is both glossy and long lasting. This polish claims to be highly pigmented. I am going to try it out, but I will say that Glossybox continues to send me pink polishes when in my beauty profile I specifically wrote that I liked darker polishes.

My First Glossybox

 

CurlsandContoursGlossyBox

My Glossybox came today, my Glossybox came today!! Yay! I have been so excited for it to finally come in the mail! This is my first experience with Glossybox, I have tried Ipsy and I have done quite a bit of reading on subscription monthly beauty boxes/packages/whatever. Here is my conclusion on why monthly beauty subscriptions are fun. Its like a little surprise gift to yourself EVERY month, and there are lots of different options and choices on what company you might want to work with. I tried Ipsy over the winter, and I really did like the “Surprise” gift to yourself idea. I was seriously so excited every month when that glittery purple package would come. AND then after a couple months, I started to be bummed about what was coming in my bag every month(I know #princessproblems right). So I decided to save my money and just STOP the madness for awhile.

THEN a couple of weeks ago I was at a friends birthday dinner and she received a gift INSIDE a Glossybox. Being the self proclaimed coveter of pretty things that I am, I immediately perked up. What is that beautiful box I thought (and I think blurted out because I am loud like that). The giver of the gift, then went on to tell me about Glossybox, and how you receive FULL size products and luxury brands for only 21 bucks a month (If your like Whhaaaat, I know I had the same reaction).

Full Disclosure- I was already sold when I saw that adorable pink box with the black bow. Hook, line, and sinker I was donezo. I HAD to have that shit in my life ASAP! Today was like a fun little party just for me! I knew the box was coming because I have been psychotically tracking it for 3 effing days. You will learn that I have a PROBLEM with expensive cosmetics…Whatever you only get ONE face, so treat it nicely.
