Sephora Play August 2017

Y'all - I swear I do more than just go to work and get subscription boxes but lately I've been so busy I haven't had time to blog about anything else. But I did take a few minutes to snap some pics of this month's Sephora play box so I could show y'all what's inside.

 

Beauty Blender Micro Mini 2for $18


 
I'll admit, I don't really "get" this product - it's so tiny! I don't mind beauty blenders and during drier weather I appreciate the dewy look they can provide but in Memphis that's not going to be November at least.


Clinique Mascara $17 and Lash Building Primer $17

 
I've come to conclusion that I just can't be impressed with mascara- I have pretty dark and long lashes naturally so there's just no wow factor for me. I'm sure this is perfectly great mascara and I'll certainty use it.

Alterna Haircare CAVIAR Anti-Aging Miracle Multiplying Volume Mist $30

 
Say that 5 times fast. That long name basically equates to a nice spray that give style and volume without that stiff crunchy look. I'm not typically one for hair products but I could see myself setting this on the counter and spritzing in the morning.  

Hourglass Vanish Seamless Finish Foundation Stick $46  

 
I liked the formula of this foundation - the application is very smooth, it was bendable and the coverage is good. However, this shade isn't quite right for me so I can't really comment on what this is like when actually work for a day.  

Korress Golden Krocus Ageless Saffron Elixir Serum $98

 
 
This product intrigued me the most and my interest always peaks when a skincare product says it's for all skin types- how could that be? Although it takes time to see the anti-aging results it did provide a nice glow to the skin so I'll probably use this in the am with my moisturizer.

My Burberry Black $29 (roller bottle)

 
I like the scent - it has jasmine, nectar and rose and jasmine and rose are some of my favorite scents so that wasn't surprising at all.
 
Overall I feel like this month had nice products but they just were't ones to my particular taste or needs. Oh well, better luck next month!

Trunk Club Review

Recently I saw the trunk club service advertised on instagram and I was very interested. The service started as a personal shopping service for men but since being purchased by Nordstrom has expanded the service offering to women. The basic premise is something similar to Stich Fix - create a profile providing sizes, likes and dislikes, converse with a stylist and be sent a box with 10 items to try on -keep what you like and send back the rest. This service has a $25 styling fee that is waived for Nordstrom card holders. When I first created my profile I knew that I wanted to add some tops to my wardrobe but I was really looking for a dress to wear to my brother in laws upcoming wedding. I was super excited when my assigned stylist indicated I could request specific items and there were three items I asked to be included. Before the trunk is sent out you have the option to preview, decline any items that are not what you're looking for and then either just get the previewed item…

Fall Fashion 2017

Ok, so I know once labor day passes we get all excited and consider it fall but officially it starts this Friday. Right now here in the south mother nature still hasn't made up her mind - we've had beautiful days in the 70s and chilly nights but we still get some days in the 90s too. It makes fall fashion a wee bit difficult so I find myself waiting until Thanksgiving weekend before I even think about busting out a sweater. Luckily this year a lot of the trends can work for this it's fall but it doesn't really feel like it weather. I think it is important for any fashionista to think about what trends he or she would like to incorporate into their style for the current season. Fashion is after all supposed to be a form of expression so it never makes sense to me to wear something just because it's "in". For example camo is big this year, but it's not my style and not something you'll ever see me in. However, there's a lot of trends this year…

Beg and Borrow Apparel

Last spring I featured Beg + Borrow in my Memphis Fashion Week coverage and I knew I wanted to get something as soon as I saw it.  Beg + Borrow is a Memphis Fashion brand featuring custom shirts and shirt dresses for women. Who doesn't love a good shirt dress? They're comfortable, versatile and give an effortless chic style. Back in April I was just starting to focus on paring down my closet and knew that this would make a great piece to own - plus each dress is custom, how fun is that? Beg + Borrow creator Monte Stewart is really great to work with and the process was much easier than I expected it to be. My biggest motivator in getting a Beg + Borrow dress is accommodating my large chest - I have very few off the rack button up items because typically when they fit everywhere else they are subject to buttons popping open on the chest - and length, because it's hard being a 5'10 girl in a 5'6 world y'all. After a few emails back and forth I met with Monte at…

Lancer The Method Review

As a teen I never broke out but in college and my adult life it was a completely different story. Then when I turned 33 it seemed like that was going to be the magic age where the adult acne stopped, and for the most part it has but now I get some pesky flair ups during my period - I hate this because well duh, don't we all hate acne? But also I feel like I might as well be wearing a giant neo sign that says HEY, I"M ON MY PERIORD Y'ALL! Not that having a period is weird or anything to be ashamed of but it feels so personal and the rest of the world knowing exactly what is going on with my body just bothers me. Point being, I'm always on the look out for ways to deal with this little monthly annoyances. Lucky for me right as my last cycle was ending and I had one stubborn spot in particular to deal with The Method arrived. This skin care routine is a three step process meant to be used together. and for the past few weeks I have been following the daily routine.

Sephora Play September 2017

I recently decided to stop my Ipsy subscription so now Sephora Play is my only beauty sample box each month. I still enjoy getting beauty samples but I just don't need that many. Here's what inside this month:
DevaCurl Melt into Moisture Conditioning Treatment $36
This smells so nice and has a good thick formula, I like this better than the last conditioning treatment I received. I typically use a salt shampoo once a week and then use a conditioning treatment and I wouldn't mind switching to this one. Benefit Gimme Brow $24
I naturally have thick brows so I don't regularly use brow products but it is nice to make them look a little more polished. Stilla Stay All Day Eyeliner $22 This eyeliner goes on super thin and has good staying power. I like marker style liner but I prefer a bit thicker of a tip, I had a hard time keeping such a thin line steady. Laura Mercier Velour Lovers Lip Colour $28 I really like the color -happy, it's a pinkish red and I really like the …
