More Estée Lauder and Lilly Pulitzer

Hello friends! I have an update for y'all with the Estée Lauder and Lilly Pulitzer collaboration. It's good news and bad news. The bad news is that according to both the Dillard's and Macy's counters this will be the last time these two are paring up. I'm sad but then again I only need so many makeup bags or totes. Hopefully it worked out well for both companies. 

Onto the good news: Summer gift with purchases are totes! And they're super cute. 

Here's the tote currently available at Dillard's: 


And here's the one coming up at Macy's starting May 26th, you can also pre-order. 


 
Personally, I like the Macy's tote better. Both are available until they run out but Macy's said they are getting less of these than they got of the makeup bags earlier so they anticipate a quick sell out. These totes are a really nice size - the bf and I went to a pool party over the weekend and it held both our suits and towels. Not too big but not too small. Rumor has it the one available at Lord and Taylor is the same print as Dillard's. 

Belk will offer this print starting June 10th:

I do not have a Belk by me and will need to order over the phone. There is a store in North Carolina that will take phone orders. Call 919 782 7010 and ask for Brooke. 

All totes are GWPs with a $35 skincare or foundation purchase. To get the Dillard's one I took a temporary break from my usual brand of foundation since I was out anyway and they had one with a nice texture, the double wear light coverage ($37) . To get the Macy's one I spent a little more and got the advance night repair serum ($62). This serum will get its own post eventually, it came as a sample in the last gwp rounds and I was very pleased, since I started using it I've been able to switch from full coverage to light coverage base, yay! See, no blemishes: 


 
If you do not have a Macy's by you I recommend calling the wolfchase galleria counter in Memphis, TN. The store number is 901 937 - 2600.

If you're having to order by phone I recommend first using the online tool to find the foundation best for you. As a point of reference, I am 29 with oily /combination skin living in a humid climate and selected double wear light. There is also an online skincare finder. I'm not receiving any compensation for sharing this info, just for fun if you're looking to find a way to get the totes :)

Travel Essentials

Confession: I love going on trips but I hate the actual process of getting there. I get motion sickness and I so both car and air travel makes me sick and I hate wasting a day traveling. But I do it anyway because the destination always seems to be worth it. This week I’m traveling for work so I didn’t really have much of a choice but hey, I made it! For business or pleasure summer time is always a popular time to travel and I’ve been on enough trips that I have my packing routine pretty well down so today I’m sharing some of my travel essentials. I’m not one of those people that prides themselves on packing for a week in a carry on so I tend to check my bag with all my clothes, shoes and whatnot and bring a generous sized tote as my carry on. I hate the idea of getting somewhere and thinking oh shoot, I left the perfect outfit for this at home so I tend to bring more outfits than there are days in the trip to give myself options. I think this one is pretty obvious but my valuables al…

Birthday Discounts

Woohoo! It's my birthday week y'all! Birthdays are always a great time for brands to make customers special and each year I'm able to take advantage of some pretty good discounts in July so I thought I would share the love and talk about some of my favorite discounts and how to get them.

My absolute favorite discount is from Kendra Scott! During your birthday month you can receive one regular item at 50% off. It's your first time you'll have to show your id in store and sign up for their email list but then once they have you on file you can just go into the store and say that you would like to apply your birthday discount to your purchase and give your email address. This year I purchased the Tatiana Long Pendant Necklace which usually sells for $175. This necklace takes the look of the popular Rayne necklace and really amps it up.  
If jewelry is your thing you can also get a $10 credit from Charming Charlie - this discount is sent to Charm Rewards members at the…

Beach Essentials

Summer time inevitably  means a trip to the beach. Growing up my husband and I had very different ways of beaching - he being from southern California is used to just taking a towel and maybe a boogie board while I grew up with a little more "princessey" way of beaching - chairs, umbrella, blanket, beach bag with supplies for the day. True story - I was shocked the first time I went to the beach with my husband and his family used the same towel they had on the sand to dry off with. Over our years together we've melded our styles - mostly him admitting that it's nice to sit in actual chairs.

Even if we're only going for a few hours I always bring a tote with what I consider some "beach essentials" - sunglasses, a water bottle, a magazine or book, a hair brush, some hair ties or clip, and of course sunscreen.
Prep Obsessed Tote in the Mermaid Mailer Sometimes we also turn our beach day into a picnic and this cooler tote is perfect for bringing drinks, …

Summer Beauty

I feel like Memorial Day is really the kickoff to summer but if you want to be technical yesterday was the first day of summer and it got me thinking about how I change up my beauty routine for summer. I know that it's recommended to change up beauty routines seasonally but I find that I can get away with the same routine for fall, spring and winter  - but summer is a different story and I find myself with different needs during the hot and humid Memphis summer months. Here's some of my summer beauty favorites.
Ogx Quenching Sea Mineral Moisturizing Lotion $7.99 I love this lotion because it's not to thick but not watery thin and it does a good job of keeping skin soft and moisturized without being greasy - plus the nice light sea scent is great for this time of year.
Christophe Robin Cleansing Purifying Scrub with Sea Salt $19 This shampoo scrub is great once a week for gently deep cleansing and get hair squeaky clean - I find it really preps hair to accept the moisture o…

Anti Aging High vs Low Review

I recently received the Iconic Edition of the Sephora Play Box (read my review here) and one of the products I was most excited to try out was Crème de La Mer The Moisturizing Soft Cream because well it's super famous and also hella expensive so of course I wanted to know what's the big deal. The .24 oz sample included was enough for about two week's use - so a one ounce jar would last about 2 months. About a week in as I was getting ready in the morning I starting noticing that my skin did indeed look different - I looked clearer and under my eyes my lines looked a little softer and my circles less dark. I took this selfie to document my skins look - because #vain - plus I knew I would need it for this longer review. I think there's still room for improve with my skin's texture but it had only been a week.
My problem was that a month's supply - the .5 oz jar - is $85 and while that might not seem bad to some it is in major conflict with my goal of being fina…
