Prep Obsessed Mystery Mail Day

Yesterday I finally left the house for work and resumed my normal routine - I'd love to tell you I accomplished a ton around the house but that would be a lie. As much as I enjoyed having extra chill time I don't enjoy when my routine gets thrown all out of whack so it was good to get back to normal life - plus this means that mail delivery resumed!
 
Mail delivery is always exciting for me since I get a decent amount of packages throughout the month and yesterday was exciting because my mystery mailers from Prep Obsessed arrived; this month I purchased both "The Big Game" mailer and Valentine mailer.
 
The big game mailer promised a Prep Obsessed signature tee and five game day essentials - I always try to get the mailers that include a tee as I love Prep O tees and would buy them anyway - then the items included just becomes a bonus. This mailer did not disappoint.


Football Tee - I'm especially excited about this one because my Alma Matter's colors are blue and gray
 
Football tote - I was very surprised to receive this item as it retails for $22.99 on it's own and it's a pretty big tote. I personally would have preferred the one that looks like a football field and I am hoping someone wants to trade with me but if not I like this tote enough to use it.
 
Football earrings - I expected these to be included and was not disappointed to receive them
 
Football bracelet - I was surprised to receive two football jewelry items but I'm not complaining, It's a nice bracelet.
 
Koozie - this was another item I expected as the Prep Obsessed girls love koozies; I personally do not but their inclusion doesn't bother me. I'll probably put out a backset of them for everyone beer for our Super Bowl party.
 
Decorative block - I'm meh on this one, it's not a bad item but I just don't have a place for it. I was thinking we would get cocktail napkins or a table item since so many people attend or host super bowl parties and cocktail napkins are a pretty frequent inclusion in Prep Obsessed mailers.
 
This mailer is $39.99 - there's still some available - and best I can tell it's at least $80 worth of products so not having a use for one or two items doesn't really bother me and I'm very glad I purchased this mailer.
 
The Valentine mailer promised a pair of slippers and six valentine essentials. Prep Obsessed has been selling a ton of the snoozie brand slippers so I strongly suspected they would be included and figured there would be a few jewelry  items, a sweet treat and a koozie.


Slippers - While this mailer did include the snoozie brand I was super disappointed that it was a plain pair, the whole appeal of them seems to be the cute designs and while no doubt these will be warm they're not cute or exciting IMO.
 
Heart earrings - I had been hopefully that the glitter heart earrings Prep O had featured earlier would be the mailer but these are cute too, design varied by mailer but it looks like everyone received some kind of heart stud.
 
XOXO Tray - this is really cute but not something I need or would have purchased. We have a black and white décor going on in our guest room so I'll probably stick this on the dresser.  
 
Red and Pink Clutch - I love the idea of this but this was just not a great product to include - it's too small to fit my phone and a clutch that doesn't fit my phone is worthless to me - mine also arrived dented so I won't even be passing it on to someone else :(
 
Chocolate Covered Strawberry Lipgloss - I hate this item, it smells yuck and I will never use it. I suspect a lot of women will be passing this item onto their daughters.
 
Koozie - like I said, Prep Obsessed always includes these
 
Candy - the lollypop is cute but I could do without it. But I fully anticipated that it wouldn't be six actual Prep O products and candy would be one item.
 
The Prep Obsessed ladies did say that this mailer would be appropriate for a younger audience but I didn't think appropriate meant targeted to them. Also this mailer was $34.99 with the value supposed to be over $70 and I'm having a hard time seeing that and to me quite frankly it wasn't even worth the $34.99 I paid. I find myself wishing I had bought the earrings I liked and the cute snoozies instead. I will say that a lot of ladies have been asking for a mailer for their daughters and I appreciate the attempt Prep O made - if I had a daughter I could have seen the clutch, lip glass lollipop and maybe even tray being perfect for her but I don't think having one that's kid friendly will also appeal to adults.
 
I'm sharing this review not to complain but to be authentic and demonstrate that my reviews are honest. I typically LOVE the Prep O mailers and this is the first one I have received after years of shopping with them I have been disappointed in - hey you can't win them all. This doesn't stop my love of their store and it won't keep me from buying future mailers but now you know when I say I love something it means I love it because if I don't I'll say so. And I really do LOVE The Big Game Mailer so it was still a good mail day.

Target Spring 2018 Try On

Spring is here! Well, maybe . . . here in Memphis we're back to think funky weather where it's in the 60s one day and freezing the next. But, spring fashion is hitting stores so close enough. While I usually start buying and wearing spring fashions for the year in March I decided this year with my theme of being more strategic with my wardrobe to go ahead and start trying things on so I can start thinking about what to ultimately buy.  Target has been killing it lately with fashion and they have several lines I love so knowing that I have a pretty healthy amount of skirts and I have jeans I love that I'd really want to be adding to my top collection I decided to make target my first try on stop. Unfortunately I discovered that the plus sizes of the Who What Wear brand are no longer carried in stores, at least not in my area anyway (I went to five Targets looking for it). Target does however have a line that is exclusive to plus sizes - Ava + Viv, and A New Day which come…

Dave and Busters Memphis

Last week Shaun and I had the opportunity to attend the preview for the Memphis location of Dave and Busters that is opening today. For Shaun it was fun to see the location in our home town but he was already familiar with the concept but for me it was first time to get the D&B experience. If you're ot familiar with D&B here's the simplest way I can describe it -Chuck E Cheese for adults, minus the ball pit (which would be awesome, but I digress). For entertainment there are dozens of tv to watch sporting or other popular events - this would be a great Olympic games watching spot. There's an extensive menu and lots of fun cocktails on the bar menu and the food was pretty yummy. But the main attraction of any D&B is the arcade - which has any game you could think of. In the bar area all the Memphis teams are printed across the wall and in the dining area is a large wall filled with Memphis iconic images - personally I love when businesses embrace the city the…

Society Plus Tutu Skirts

"Well, don't you look all princessey" my hubby said to me as he took photos of this look . . . which makes sense considering that's what it says on the label. . . .

See, I wasn't kidding. All Society+ items actually come with a fun affirmation label, which is just a fun brand touch but it's certainty true for this outfit.   I remember when tulle skirts first became popular a few years ago and I thought oh no way I could wear that, I would look huge and ridiculous; but then I tried one on and you know what - I felt FABULOUS! I actually think while tulle skirts look fabulous on anyone they are perfect for plus size women because they're not overwhelming. Plus hello, they're fun and pretty.




I've been wearing tulle for a couple of years now but it's only been recently that I've worn a Society+ Tutu Skirt and let me just say - what a difference! Each tutu skirt has 5 layers of tulle which gives a nice level of poof. The waist band is super co…

Valentine Outfit Inspo

OMG Valentine's Day is this week! That just kinda snuck up on me. Thank goodness my hubby made a reservation weeks ago, now I need to just figure out what to wear. When I originally shot some Valentine looks I picked two tops that I thought were appropriate and mixed them with a few different skirts to show how you can get different looks mixing and matching. First I wanted to mix red and pink but do so in a sophisticated manner without looking childish - I think by wearing something that just has accents of pink instead of a full on pink top it works, plus an off the shoulder look makes the outfit more sexy and mature instead of sweet. But, I also did want to show this top in a more romantic way and I think the soft pink and soft velvet material of the skirt gives that look.   Next I mixed red and pink again and although I was worried how two solid colored pieces would look I think the deep red really compliments the blush of the pink well, plus I love the mixing of luxe fabri…

Sephora Play January 2018

This year I've cut back on subscription boxes a lot - right now it's just Mommy Lhey Little Bits (planner supplies) and Sephora Play (beauty). Don't get me wrong, I love getting subscription boxes but if I'm being perfectly honest I also love picking my own things to buy and I'm trying to be even smarter with my spending this year. That said, I like Sephora Play because for $10 a month it keeps me connected with the latest beauty products and lets me try them without spending a fortune. This month I was super excited by the products inside this months box.

Glam Glow Cleanser $32
I really like the gla glow masks so I was really excited to try this cleanser and it did not disappoint. Most cleansers cannot get off my eye makeup and I have to use a remover but this one cleaned my entire face. Its not drying and because it has a similar consistency although lighter than the mask I feel like it does a great job of giving a deep clear rather than just clean makeup from …
