Prep Obsessed Mystery Mailers - 2017 Holiday Season

I might have a slight addiction to Prep Obsessed mystery mailers. The are a great value, the products are always really cute, the t-shirts are so comfortable and flattering, and they get me to try items I might not have purchased on their own, so what's not to love?
 
The latest round of mystery mailers are all about celebrating the holiday season. I have received the Thanksgiving , Black Friday and Thanksgiving Hostess and will be purchasing the Christmas and New Year mailers - they also currently have a Christmas Hostess and several fashion mystery mailers available. I have been purchasing mystery mailers from Prep Obsessed pretty much ever since they started offering them and I have never been disappointed in what I received.
 
For Thanksgiving and Black Friday I purchased a combo mailer which means I got free shipping and a bonus item - they are also doing a Christmas / New Year combo that gives a discount.
 
Here's the bonus item, a super cute Prep Obsessed exclusive tumbler:


The Thanksgiving Mailer:

 
The Thanksgiving mailer varied by recipient but everyone received the same T-shirt, Socks, and Wine Tumbler. Everyone also received cocktail napkins and a serving utensil but those varied.
 

I received this beautiful cake server and pretty scalloped edge cocktail napkins.
 

 
Close up on the socks and wine tumbler, aka a "Mommy Sippy Cup". The cup matches the shirt - I added the Prep Obsessed sticker, it doesn't come on it.
 
Here's the Black Friday items:


It seems like everyone received the same items - long sleeve tee, shopper tote, and a pouch filled with black Friday essentials which was a breakfast bar (Shaun already ate it), lip balm, shower bomb, and Black Friday countdown decoration. I am absolutely wearing this tee out for my Thursday night / Friday shopping.

And then, because I didn't feed my addiction enough I also got the Thanksgiving Hostess mailer. Now ideally this is something you give as a gift to the person hosting your Thanksgiving but since I am hosting and I've worked my butt off refinishing the table to have it ready in time I totally deserve it. I received two duplicate items but I was able to trade with a fellow prep obsesser. Each mailer contained a serving piece (I got another cake server and traded for a serving fork) , Dish Towel, Cocktail napkins (different print), Thanksgiving goodie (I received the socks again, they are really soft so no biggie) and a statement necklace. For those that had ordered their mailers  in October and received the beginning of November they could provide a list of items received in the Thanksgiving mailer if they did not want to receive duplicates.
 

I LOVE this statement necklace - so pretty!
 
I'm really excited to see what's going to be in the December mailers, One thing I like about Prep Obsessed is that they do provide a list of what type of items will be in each mailer so you can determine if that's something you're interested in. Y'all should check it out!

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:
OFRA Cosmetics Peach Blush $12 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.
Hanalei Aloe Soothing Gel $30 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.
No Poreblem Primer $18 This is a nice, lightweight primer and has a …

Sephora Play April 2017

This month's Sephora Play box featured some of the top selling Sephora products, here's what's inside:


Smashbox Photo Finish Primer
I currently use this primer and it helps my foundation go on smooth and keeps my face from getting too oily during the day. It's light weight and has no scent and one tube lasts a really long time - I bought mine before my wedding and that was six months ago.

Make Up For Ever Aqua XL eyeliner
The Make Up For Ever brand is very popular at Sephora and very nice quality products. This eyeliner doesn't smudge and goes on smooth.

Peter Thomas Roth Water Drench Cloud Cream
This is a primer / moisturizer combo and I really like the way it feels - very light weight and makes my skin feel silky

Kate Somerville ExfoliKate
This says it's an "intense exfoliator" but I found it to be very fine. The paste is ather think and a yucky green color with a heavy plant scent, but hey if it works who cares what it looks like.

Sephora Waterproof …

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:






20 Guildelines for Financial Responsibility

As a blogger I constantly worry if I am supporting over consumerism and irresponsible spending. At the end of the day I can say Oh, I LOVE this item and it was so worth it to me but I have to hope that people are making the right decisions based on their own financial situation. But since finance is a passion of mine (it is my day job after all) and since so many of y'all are looking to focus on your own finances in 2019 I thought it might be good to take a step back from fashion and talk about the money honey! I don't claim to have all the answers or to be an expert, but I've learned a lot between my education, my career and to be honest making some bad financial decisions myself so I've complied a list of 20 guidelines for financial success from the basics to saving for the future. The Basics 1. You absolutely must be able to cover the four walls - your home and all utilities and maintenance - and your necessary expenses (food, car, gas) before you can think about…

Plum Paper Designs - Fitness Insert

I know I say this every year but this year I also want to make wellness / fitness a priority. It's hard for me to get in the mindset of making it important because quite frankly it's not something my doctor gets onto me about. But during 2015 I've been making a switch to a more natural lifestyle and that has put fitness back at my top of mind. So, for $4.50 I got the fitness section added onto my Plum Paper Designs Planner 
Here's what's inside: 

A summary sheet at the front: 

A monthly layout for 12 months
Weight Loss Tracker at the Back 

I LOVE the monthly layout! First off, having a hydration tracker for each day is going to be so nice. I also love the idea of holding myself accountable to writing down an activity (or excuse) each day. Most of all I love the recognition that each month will have different goals and includes some note sections ; one thing I hear a lot form people who successfully got fit was that they had some kind of tracking and were able to go back…
