Review: Stitch Fix-Fix # 16

Hey Guys,
I'm back with another Stitch Fix unboxing. I received an email saying that they would waive my styling fee if I signed up for a fix. I figured it was a good opportunity to try them out again. All I really asked for were items to transition me from the spring to summer. I also pinned a bunch of new clothing items to my fashion board on Pinterest and told them to check it out. For those of you unfamiliar with Stitch Fix, it is a personal styling subscription service. You can learn more about Stitch Fix and see my previous fixes on my Subscription Reviews page. Check out my video below to see the unboxing and me trying them on. Below are my thoughts on each piece!

I  really liked the lace detail on this tank top. It's really cute. This top is also long enough to wear with leggings which is a plus.

Review: SmashBox Cover Shot Eye Palette in Ablaze

Hey Guys,
Today I am going to share  my thoughts on the Smashbox Cover Shot Eye Palette in Ablaze. I won this palette in an instagram giveaway. Thanks to Teresa for this palette! You can check out her instagram HERE. SmashBox collaborated with Shay Mitchell (Emily on Pretty Little Liars) and came out with 7 different mini palettes. Each palette had a color theme. I was able to pick from any of them for my giveaway prize. The Ablaze palette stood out to me the most. Keep reading to hear more about this palette!

SmashBox Cover Shot Eye Palette in Ablaze
This palette seems to be available online only on the Sephora site. It's also available on the SmashBox site.
SmashBox Cover Shot Eye Palette in Ablaze
 The palette is pretty tiny and is great for travel. It comes with 8 shades that are a mix of matte and shimmer finishes. They call the shades in the palette "hot desert inspired shades". Half of the shadows are warm burnt orange/gold/bronzey shades. The other half are berries/pink shades. I don't get where the pinks come into play in a "desert" palette but it definitely caught my eye none the less.

Favorite Dresses for Spring/Summer

Hey Guys,
I haven't worn many dresses this spring because it hasn't been that warm. However, I usually live in them from the end of Spring through the Summer months. They are just so easy and effortless to wear. Below I have come up with of my favorite dresses for the spring/summer along with some shoppable examples of each!


Favorite Spring/Summer Dresses


Maxi Dresses

Maxi dress have to be my favorite of all! They are easy to dress up or down and I don't have to worry about the length of them being an issue at work. They are so comfortable and I love how they fit my body. I think any woman can rock a maxi. Its just finding the right style to flatter your body. I own a TON of maxi dresses but plan to buy more for this year. I have started posting some of my older ones on Poshmark so that I don't feel guilty buying more lol

Tee Shirt Dresses
I may be making up the name of these but they are basically shorter dresses that are made out of tee shirt material. They are casual dresses that look like long shirts or have a casual look of a tee shirt. I have seen these dresses all over the place and think they are pretty popular this season. I don't own any but plan to pick a couple up. These dresses are on the shorter side so people with large booties like myself need to be careful with the length. That being said, they are super cute and are perfect for a lunch date or afternoon shopping.
Blouse Dresses
This is another name that I'm not quite sure that I got right. The dresses that I am trying to describe take inspiration from blouses. They usually have pockets on the front and some have 3/4 length tab sleeves. Another trend that I am seeing with these type of dresses are lace front tops like we have seen with blouses in the colder months. I have seen both fitted and loose blouse dresses and this this is a great style for all shapes and sizes.

Skater/Fit and Flare Dresses
While I don't love skater dresses on me, I do love the style. For some reason,  flowy girly clothing feels weird on me. I like clothing either super tight and sexy or loose/baggy. I think skater dresses are super cute in general though and think they are perfect for the summer and spring months. Especially the tank top/spaghetti strap style dresses. I think the slinky almost cami like dresses are adorable. I have also seen alot with criss cross tops which is wicked cute!

What are your favorite style dresses for spring? Post your comments below!

Review: ColourPop Haul #2

Hey Guys,
Recently I shared my first ColourPop haul that you can check out HERE. My friend El got me some ColourPop products as an early birthday present. I still had other products on my GIANT wishlist and decided to pick up some more. All of these products will get used in the spring and summer months so that is my justification for ordering them lol. I still have a few items on my ColourPop list but I will save them for the fall/winter since the colors are more fitting for those seasons.So back to this haul... ColourPop came out with Sand, Nectar, and Pink Spring Collections. While the Pink Collection didn't really interest me, a bunch of items from the Sand and Nectar Collections did. I already talked about some in my last haul. Below are some more items from the Sand and Nectar collections plus other items that I've had on my list for a while. Keep reading to see what I got and to hear my thoughts on each!

April Favorites

Hey Guys!
I feel like the month of April has come and gone so quickly that I can't even remember it. I really hope that May and the upcoming summer months do the opposite and go by super slow. The warmer months are definitely my favorite. April had some beautiful days in the 60s, 70s, and 80s. I didn't really have anything too eventful in the month. I did the Walk MS in Boston for multiple sclerosis but that's about it. I did my second tutorial ever which you can check out HERE. My birthday is this week which I'm usually excited about.  I have mixed feelings this year since I'm turning 30. In terms of beauty/fashion, I haven't purchased any clothing because I plan to get some money or giftcards for my birthday. Since I am going to Mexico in July I want to buy some cute outfits for that. I also need some new clothing for the summer. My go to's are Fashion Nova and Express. Target also has really cute maxi dresses that I can wear to work. I have however purchased a TON of makeup. Ulta and Sephora had sales and El sent me an early birthday present from ColourPop. I also placed a separate order so stay tuned for another ColourPop haul review. I will be trying out a ton of products this month! Until then, you can check out what I was loving in April below!

OOTD: Cognac & Camo

Hey Guys,
One of my blogging goals for 2017 was to incorporate more fashion related content onto my blog. This includes more outfit of the day posts.  You will be able to see what's actually in my closet and how I style different pieces. Now that we are having warmer weather I am going to try to make more time for these. This past weekend it was beautiful out and I decided it would be a good time to take some pics. I went for a very casual look pairing some ripped jeans with a camo tee shirt and heeled combat boots. I also had a cognac colored hobo bag that I thought would look great with the outfit. I am very bad at making decisions and had a hard time narrowing down the pics for this post. Below you will see the details of my outfit. I have listed the exact items that I am wearing. I have also listed similar items if I couldn't find the exact items and some similar plus size pieces as well. Thanks to my boyfriend Colin for taking these pictures for me!

Get the Look for Less: Miranda Kerr Sexy in Sheer

Hey Guys,
I'm back with another edition of Get the Look for Less! You can check out my previous edition HERE. This time around, I found the below image of Miranda Kerr. I'm not sure if she's still a Victoria's Secret Angel or not. I thought this outfit was sexy without showing TOO MUCH. I love the sheer top. While some people may just wear a black bra underneath, I like that she chose a little bit classier look with a black tank or bodysuit underneath. I'm not sure if the blazer was needed but maybe it was chilly out?  I love the strappy heels as well. Check out what I came up with below!

Get the Look for Less: Mandy Moore Edgy Plaid

Hey Guys,
Today I am bringing back an oldie but goodie. For those of you that have been following Leopard Lace and Cheesecake from the very beginning remember my "Get the Look for Less" posts. I would find pictures of celebrities and try to recreate their outfits at affordable stores. I would link all similar items below the pictures. I stopped doing these posts because they were VERY time consuming. 

I have been adding more fashion back into my blog and decided to bring it back! I will only post one look per post instead of 3-5 like I used to do. I may end up changing it but for now that's what I'm going to do. Another thing I will do differently is I will add a shopping bar below the picture instead of adding a bunch of pictures of items. That way, I can find more than one option, and not have a TON of pictures in the post. 

In these type of posts, I most likely will not be able to find the EXACT outfits but rather take inspiration from the outfits. I will keep the items more on the affordable side unless I can find something almost exact. Then I will include more expensive options as well. I like to share affordable items with my readers that more people have access to so there will always be those pieces listed. If you guys have a specific celebrity style, picture of an outfit, or celebrity in general you want me to recreate; feel free to let me know in the comments or send me an email with the picture! I would love your input, ideas, and requests, etc!

For this post, I decided to recreate the below outfit worn by Mandy Moore. She was one of my pop idols growing up back when she a singer. It has been so cool to see her on the show This Is Us! I absolutely love the show and think she is phenomenal in it. I thought the outfit below was pretty unique and decided to give it a try. I would never think to mix this long plaid dress with a leather jacket but it works! Check out the shop bar below to see what I came out up!

Tutorial: Tarte Maneater Palette

Hey Guys,
Today I am going to share my second ever makeup tutorial! I haven't attempted a tutorial since the first one that I created in 2015. It took so long between my camera battery dying, memory card getting full, and not really being able to tell what was actually in frame never mind editing. A couple weeks ago I had a Saturday where I didn't have plans until dinner so I decided to take the time to film another tutorial. I have a monitor that I have facing me as part my filming set up so that I can see when I am out of frame in my camera. This time around I made sure my memory card was empty and my battery fully charged. 

I would say that filming was a lot easier with the monitor and things went more smoothly. However, I have been filming on auto focus for about a year or so. I switched because I film alot when I am by myself. Manual focus is pretty tough when you are alone because you have no one to sit in for you while you adjust your camera settings. So after filming was done everything looked fine. Once I uploaded my images and video onto my laptop I realized that alot of my pictures were blurry and so was the video at times. Come to find out, my camera kept focusing in on the flowers on my backdrop instead of my face. This is super frustrating because I worked so hard on this video. I decided it wasn't too blurry and it was only at certain times so I decided to go forward and publish this video.

I bought new fabric that is a plain dark gray. I am going to use this going forward but am also thinking about filming in manual again. I would love everyone's input in opinion/tips on this. 

The palette that I used for this tutorial is the Tarte Maneater Palette. You can see my review HERE.

Check out my video below to see my tutorial!

March Favorites

Hey Guys,
I'm so glad that its April! Even though I hate to see time fly by, I am so looking forward to warmer weather. It was pretty cold in March but it actually felt like spring yesterday. March was a pretty good month for me. I saw Florida Georgia Line in concert at Mohegan Sun (post HERE), I booked a trip to Mexico for July, I bought tickets to FGL/BSB/Nelly at Fenway Park and Justin Bieber at Gilette Stadium for this summer. One of the resolutions that I made for 2017 is that I have decided to spend more of my money on "experiences" that will create life long memories instead of material things. I had a bunch of new favorites this month. Check out my video below to see what I was loving!

Spring Fashion Haul: Fashion Nova, H&M, American Eagle, & LuLaRoe

Hey Guys,
Today I am sharing a spring fashion haul. We had some really nice weather a couple months ago and I really got excited for the spring. I started buying a bunch of stuff and now it feels like winter again! Ugh! Anyways, I'm still super excited for the spring and can't wait for warmer weather. Check out my video below to see what I picked up!

Review: Tarte Maneater Palette

Hey Guys,
Today I am going to share my thoughts on the Tarte Maneater palette! I don't own many Tarte palettes. The only ones that I have ever had were the limited edition Holiday palettes. While they were pretty, they just seemed underwhelming to me. I never really reached for them over my other palettes. A couple months ago the Tarte Maneater palette was released. For whatever reason, this palette really interested me. All of the colors looked like ones that I would use. I decided to go to Ulta and swatch the palette in person. I was on the fence between this palette and the Tarte Double Duty Don't Quit Your Day Dream eyeshadow palette. They were both the same price and swatched beautifully. I decided on the Maneater Palette because I thought it was a little bit more versatile.  Keep reading to hear my thoughts on this palette!

Tarte Maneater Palette
It looks like this is a limited edition palette. It is no longer on the Ulta site. I'm not sure if it's out of stock or gone. I did find it on the Tarte site which I linked above.

Review: Ole Henriksen Balance VoxBox*

Hey Guys,
Today I'm going to share my thoughts on the Ole Henriksen Balance VoxBox that I received from Influenster. I am supposed to mention that I got these free from Influenster for testing and review purposes. I am familiar with the skin care brand Ole Henriksen but I wasn't aware that they came out with a new line for oily/combo skin. I was really excited to try these products out because I can get pretty oily in my t-zone and nothing really made a huge difference in preventing that. Mattifying foundations do help but the right skincare is even more important. Check out my unboxing video and keep reading to hear my thoughts on each product!

OOTD: This is How We Roll at Mohegan Sun

Hey Guys,
Today I am going to share the outfit I wore to the Florida Georgia Line concert at Mohegan Sun. For those of you not from New England, Mohegan Sun is a casino in Connecticut. Its about 1 hour and 45 minutes from me. They have a huge area there for concerts and sports events. I actually took a ton of video and some pictures at dinner and the concert. I saved them to my snap memories and apparently they didn't save! I'm totally bummed out. 
OOTD: This is How We Roll at Mohegan Sun
Anyways, the concert was awesome and it was a fun night. We started off by having dinner at Ballo which is an Italian restaurant at Mohegan Sun. 
OOTD: This is How We Roll at Mohegan Sun
Next we went to find our seats at the arena/stadium and have a few drinks. There were 3 opening acts. Ryan Follese, Chris Lane, and Dustin Lynch. All of the acts were great. 
OOTD: This is How We Roll at Mohegan Sun
Florida Georgia killed it just like their last show that I went to in the Summer. After the concert we went to the nightclub at the casino called Avalon and danced for a of couple hours.

JORD Wooden Watches
Hey Guys,
Today I'm going to introduce you all to a brand that I am collaborating with! The company is JORD and they specialize in wooden watches for men and women. All JORD watches are hand crafted. There have many different styles of watches available. There are several different wood types and face colors to choose from. You could pick from more classic styles or more fun and unique ones.

Not only did it come in a beautiful wooden box, but it was displayed atop an embroidered pillow. It also came with items to care for your watch including a super soft cloth and treatment oil.

Review: BH Cosmetics Metal Rose Brush Set

Hey Guys, 
Today I am going to share my thoughts on the BH Cosmetics brush set that Colin got me for Christmas. I have been using it for a few weeks and am ready to share my thoughts!

BH Cosmetics Metal Rose Makeup Brush Set
 The brushes are cruelty free and synthetic. At first glance, the brushes feel really luxurious and high quality. The fact that they are made out of metal really adds to this. The case is really nice too and is pretty big.

Spring Fashion Favorites

Hey Guys,
Today I am going to share some of my fashion related favorites for the spring. A big thank you to Lily Beauty with Lily and Cara Kindly Unspoken for helping me figure out how to create shopping bars and collages. I have been really lucky to have so many of my blogger friends willing to lend a helping hand. I truly appreciate it!

When it comes to fashion, I have my go to stores and websites. I am going to try to broaden the stores that I feature in my fashion posts. However, I do consider myself more of a "budget friendly" fashion blogger. While I splurge every once in a while, I very rarley spend a lot on clothing. And what I mean by that is alot per item. haha So you will mostly see "affordable" stuff on these lists not high end unless requested. As most of you know, Fashion Nova is one of my favorite fashion brands. They are not on the shopping app that I used for this post so those hauls and posts will always be separate. Retailers that  you WILL see on these lists are my favorites like Express, H&M, Forever21, and Target.

Going forward, you will see more of these type of posts on my blog. I have been pretty bored with all of my reviews and unboxings. While I will still be doing those, I will throw in some more fashion and beauty seasonal favorites, trends, wishlists, etc. Please let me know if there is something specific that you would like to see on my blog! I would also love your feedback on this post!

Now lets get back to this post. Spring Fashion! Below are my favorite trends that I am seeing this season. Check out the categories below with details on what I am loving for spring and why. I have also has shared some examples and where to find them!

Hey Guys,
I hope everyone is as excited as me that it is March 1st! Even though Spring technically isn't until March 21st, the start of the month is just a reminder that we are almost there!

February Favorites + Flops

Hey Guys,
It's been a pretty good February and I can't wait until the spring time! It was super warm last week and we hit record high temperatures in Boston for the month of February. We hit high 60's and low 70's last week. Saturday I was jogging outside with a short sleeve shirt on but the very next day it was cold and windy in the 40's (which felt like 30's with the wind). I started clothing shopping for the spring. Do you guys like seeing my fashion hauls or are they getting boring? I DEF want to do OOTD posts styling my clothes its just taking the time on the weekend to put together a few outfits, find some cool locations, and take pictures. I always seem to have SOMETHING to do that prevents me from doing so. I am going to make more of an effort once we have steady warm temps to do so. I only have makeup related favorites this month. I have two flops as well, Check out my video below to see what I've been loving!

Review: VIIcode Oxygen Eye Mask for Dark Circles*

Hey Guys,
Today I'm going to share my thoughts on eye masks that were sent to me to test out and review. The brand is called VII Code and the product that I will be discussing is their O2M Oxygen Eye Mask for Dark Circles. I have suffered with dark circles since childhood. I'm not quite sure why I have them so bad but it's something that I am very self conscious about. I am always interested in hearing about products that are supposed to reduce the appearance of dark circles. The VII Code are different from other eye sheet masks because they are an overnight treatment that can be worn up to 8 hours. For the past 3 weeks I have tried out these eye masks and am ready to share my thoughts. Keep reading to hear more about this product!

Review: BH Cosmetics Gold Rush Palette

Hey Guys,
Today I am going to share my thoughts on the BH Cosmetics Gold Rush Palette. Colin got me this palette for Christmas. I have been testing it out ever since. I haven't tried any BH Cosmetics palettes prior to the items that he got me but I have always wanted to. They are known for their super affordable pricing and their cute brush sets. They are probably most known for the  collab that they did with Carli Bybel. During the holidays, they had tons of sales which made the prices even lower. I believe they are also cruelty free. Keep reading to hear my thoughts on this palette!

BH Cosmetics Gold Rush Eye & Cheek Palette $12.50
BH Cosmetics Gold Rush Palette
This palette isn't showing up on their site anymore. I'm not sure if it is out of stock or if it is discontinued. It comes with 12 eye shadows and 3 face products. It is made of a heavy cardboard and has a decent sized mirror on the inside.
BH Cosmetics Gold Rush Palette
There are 5 mattes and 7 shimmers. It also includes 1 highlighter, 1 blush, and 1 bronzer. All three face products have a shimmer to them.

Review: Garnier Whole Blends Hydrating Coconut Water & Vanilla Milk Mask

Hey Guys,
Today I am going to share my thoughts on the new Garnier Whole Blends Hydrating Mask. I love masks hair masks and haven't use them in a while.I picked this up MONTHS ago but just got around to trying it a couple of weeks ago. Keep reading to hear more about this hair mask and my thoughts on it!

Garnier Whole Blends Hydrating Mask Coconut Water & Vanilla Milk $6.29

Garnier Whole Blends Hydrating Coconut Water & Vanilla Milk Mask
Here is what is said about this mask on the Garnier site:

"Generous rinse-out treatment deeply quenches & softens. Our deeply moisturizing yet light & silky formula blooms with a tropical fragrance of coconut water & vanilla milk, bringing to life our wholesome care that gives strands a deep dose of hydration without weighdown, for hair that is delectably soft with silky shine." - http://www.garnierusa.com/

Garnier Whole Blends Hydrating Coconut Water & Vanilla Milk Mask
On to my thoughts:
This mask is paraben free and gentle enough to use every day. It supposed to hydrate your hair without weighting it down. You leave it on for a couple minutes then wash out. This is the best smelling hair mask that I have ever tried! It smells exactly as it noted above...like coconuts and vanilla. You get a ton of product for under $7.00. The jar is about 10oz. The mask itself is almost a yogurt like consistency. It spreads easily through hair. My hair instantly felt like silk after washing it out. I think it did a great job at making my hair feel soft and hydrated. I let my hair air dry overnight and you could still smell a subtle version of the fragrance once dry. Overall, I highly recommend this hair mask and can't wait to try other scents of the Garnier Whole Blends line!

January Favorites

Hey Guys, 
Today I'm going to share my favorite products for January! I know that I am going to probably jinx myself saying this but we have had a very mild winter here in MA. It hasn't been extremely cold nor has it snowed alot. I'm really looking forward to next month as I am going to Mohegan Sun Casino in Connecticut to see Florida Georgia Line! They have quickly become one of my favorite groups of all time which is weird considering that I don't really like country music. Nonetheless, I have fallen in love with this group and their new album Dig Your Roots has really touched my soul. I'm not a religious person but there is something about this album that just really moves me on so many levels. I love many different types of music but there is something different about these artists. I feel like their music has helped me heal from things in my life in a way...I can't really explain it. I love their focus on family, love, and living a simple life. Their morals, values, and messages are just so real and inspiring. Anyways, if you like country or even if you don't... check them out! My favorite songs from there new album are H.O.L.Y., Life is a Honeymoon, Dig Your Roots, May We All, Grow Old, and Wish You Were On It. Back to the real reason for writing this post, check out my video below to see the products that I was loving this month!
