Ipsy Glam Bag April 2017

OMG, Ipsy finally has a cute bag for the month!

Seriously, this month's coral ticket design bag is super cute and would make a fun little clutch for a night out at a festival or fair.

 
The items I received this month weren't terrible either. Here's what's inside my bag and my thoughts on each product:

 
Everything I've received from this company in my Ipsy bad is a full-sized product (nice)! However they need to be in a refillable palette so that may not be your thing but I just found mine recently so this offends me less. This is overall a nice shade so I'll add it to my palette.

 
This is a little more lightweight than the aloe gel you can get in a giant bottle at CVS but I'm skeptical yet if that makes it worth $30 for a jar. We're going to the beach in May so the timing is good and I'm sure I'll use the whole sample.

 
This is a nice, lightweight primer and has a nice scent to it - I'm defiantly excited about using this one. I don't dislike my current primer but I'm not in love with it either so I'm very open to trying something new.
 

 
This is the one product I was disappointed in, there's really nothing special about this lip balm and it doesn't even have spf in it. I'll toss it in my bag but it's not something I'd ever pay a premium for.

 
I wear black eyeliner almost everyday and felt tiped is my favorite kind so I was super excited to get this! I goes on very smooth and thin and the price can't be beat - this is something I see myself buying in the future!
 
Overall I was pleased with this month's bag and I am SOOOO glad Ipsy has gone back to cute designed bags. I still wish I was on the list to select my own samples but this solid bag will keep me subscribing into May which means I've been an Ipsy subscriber a whole year - this is the longest I've kept ANY subscription so way to go Ipsy for surviving my super pickiness. If you want to get a bag of your own for only $10 a month just click on Ipsy anywhere in this post to sign up!

I tried

As I've blogged about previously this year I am trying to cut back on my amount of clothing and my fashion spending. But now I've realized the problem with that - I've purged a lot and now I wearing the same 8 seasonally appropriate  outfits on rotation - which is not great when you're also trying to focus your blog to have more of a fashion emphasis; plus it's reminded me why I typically bought so much clothes - it's boring wearing the same thing over and over again. Of course, part of this is my bad because I'm also supposed to be trying to wear things differently so they don't look like the same outfit over and over again. This my friends is easier said than done. So take last Saturday for example - Shaun and I headed to Ikea to look at sofas and kitchen ideas (woohoo - married life is so glamorous!). Initially I threw on jeans, a cotton top and a cardigan since it was looking to be a little chilly look and right as I was about to say ok, I'm r…

Memphis Fashion Week 2017 Emerging Designers

The last night of Memphis Fashion Week is the favorite night for many local fashionistas because it shows off what is up and coming in our city. Once again I was able to grab a great seat and see the pieces up close.

First up for the evening was two time previous winner Tiena. I think it's easy to see why she's won twice before - just wow on these beautiful designs!





I love the model's expression here - it's like she just loves wearing this so much she can't contain it.








I love all of it but the yellow ruffle dress has to be my favorite, it's not a color I would typically be drawn to but there's something so nice about it!
Next up was the teen collection, these pieces were designed by beautiful young ladies all under 20. Once again, I am a complete and total life slacker. Seriously - I was blown away by how talented these girls are:






Wardrobe Wednesday - 1 month update

Hello Friends! Now that I'm done with Wedding Wednesday I've decided to shift my regular Wednesday to the big thing I'm focused on right now - my wardrobe! If you're not friends with me on FB, or you are an have me hidden due to political differences (hey, it's the world we live in, I get it) you might have missed that on a regular basis I'm posting my OOTD (outfit of the day) to be voted on for keep, restyle or purge. So far the votes have been really helpful and between the votes and stuff I'm purging on my own I have quite the purge pile developed. Here's the most popular thing I've posted:
This plaid top from Old Navy was purchased during their black Friday sale when the entire store is 50% off - I usually take this as a go time to stock up on cotton tees and other basics but I was really drawn to this color combination when I saw it in store. So far this has been the only piece I've posted that has received a 100% keep vote so I'd say…
