Erin Condren Seasonal Surprise Spring 2017

For 2017 Erin Condren has offered a new product - the seasonal surprise box. I missed out on the box delivered in January so I was super excited to sign up for the spring box and received it yesterday. The cost for these boxes is $35 which includes shipping. Each box includes a mix of new to be released products and some old favorites.

 
 
 
The first item is a new product - hardcover bound notebooks. The pages are lined and trimmed with rose gold. ($15)

 
Next is the list pad ($15) in the floral print

 
The box also contained a matching address book ($6)

 
Two planner sticker sheets ($3)

 
Framed print art (this is a new size that is soon to be released the current smallest is 11 by 11 for $48)

 
One notecard ($1.50)

 
Sticky corner pockets ($5)
 
Page markers (this pack is to be released but currently one large magnetic page marker is $3)


 
Overall the value for the box is good and this is a great way for EC fans to be the first to receive new products. For me personally though this box was a miss because I don't see myself using the products it contains. A lot of people were unhappy with the contents of the first box and I would have loved that box so different strokes for different folks. I'll probably give the box another try

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…

Who What Wear Mellow Yellow

If you've followed my blog for any amount of time than you know I'm in love with Target collaborations. While I'm certainty willing to pull an all-nighter for the once a year designer collabs in April  I also appreciate the more long term collaborations and I am currently loving the one with Who What Wear. The collection includes a lot of trendy and high fashion looks in regular in plus sizes but at Target prices - yes! I've purchased a few pieces from this collection but right now I am currently obsessed with a yellow outfit from earlier this year - and best of all right now it's on sale!
So this looks like a cute dress, right? Wrong! It's actually a top and skirt - check the sale racks at your local store because it seems to be sold out online. I typically never wear yellow but I was just really drawn to this outfit. I felt like my dress selection is a little lacking but I also prefer to spend on versatile pieces right now so the fact that this is two separ…
