September Birchbox Review!

Hi everyone!

Today, I received my first ever Birchbox! I was so excited because I love trying out new beauty products :) If any of you don't know what Birchbox is, it is an exciting new way of discovering new products. Every month, for only $10 and free shipping, you get a box delivered to your door filled with goodies :) You might not like or use everything that is in it but it is worth the money. Birchbox offers samples from well known brands as well as newly discovered amazing companies. If you would like to try out new samples every month then feel free to subscribe to them at www.birchbox.com.

Now, on to showing you what I got in this month's box. I was pleasantly surprised and really liked what I got. I haven't tried everything since I just got it but they look promising hahaha!


The Packaging 
  •  I quite liked the little box it came in and was surprised that there was so much detail put into it. The aqua wrapping paper was cute and everything was wrapped accordingly. When you open it up the first thing you see is a card with a note from the Birchbox team and on the back there is a list with everything that you got in the box so you know exactly what they are and what they do. :)
This is the box and how everything came packaged

Fall Lookbook and Madewell coupon

  • The next "paper" thing I got was a coupon or as they call it a Gift Card with a code for a $25 off a $75 or more purchase at Madewell. I have never heard of this company but I will give it a try. :)
  • The Fall Lookbook is a very cute little book filled with tips about hair, makeup and clothing. I think it's super cute and useful!

Nail Polish 

  • The nail polish is from a brand called Color Club and is in the color 5786 INSTA-THIS (how cute haha). It came packaged in separate wrapping paper and tied with a little string. I thought it was very thoughtful and smart since it could easily brake. 
The color is actually darker in real life more like an indigo.

BB Cream

  • The BB Cream sample is very small but it is a sample haha! It is from Dr. Jart + Water Fuse. It is a multi - action skincare plus makeup cream and it has an SPF 25 which is great. Looks promising! I can't wait to try it out since I love BB Creams :)

 Benefit Skincare Solutions

  • I am actually very excited about this because I am currently looking for some new skincare products. The packaging that these samples came in is so cute and colorful! This is the RADIANT BY BENEFIT SKINCARE. It came with a Foamingly Clean Facial Wash and a Refined Finish Facial Polish. Can't wait to try them!
Adorable packaging! Love that it has descriptions of the products and directions :) Very useful!

Make-up Remover Swabs 

  • These are 24 cotton swabs filled with makeup remover. I have never used something like this before but they seem like a good idea. You can use them when you make a mistake and need to correct the make up or just to remove the makeup in general. I don't think it would be great for the entire face or mascara since they are so small but they are great for everything else and when you are on the go!

 Lifestyle Extra and Hair Tie

  • Last thing that I got was a cute and colorful snag free hair tie and a Granola Bar! I already tried the bar and it tastes healthy haha!

I hope you guys enjoyed this review! I can't wait for the October box haha! Let me know if you are subscribed to this or a similar one like Glossybox :) 

Have an awesome day/night!

OOTD: Grey Owl Sweater

Hi everyone!

This is my 3rd outfit of the day! Today was a pretty gloomy but very humid day. The temperature was not too hot but not too cold.


This is what I wore. I chose this sweater because it was quite light and perfect for this weather. On the bottom I am wearing simple black skinny pants. I am also wearing a pair of black bow flats and my Candie's cross body bag.




Get the Look:

Lipsticks! :)

 Hi everyone!

This is going to be a quick post where I will show you a couple of lipstick looks that I am loving at the moment.

Look 1

I have been loving a bright reddish lip lately. I used to be scared to wear such a bright color on my lips but now I really don't care anymore hahaha!

I also enjoy wearing my glasses more when I don't feel like putting my contacts in. They make me look a little smarter :D

Wearing Revlon Super Lustrous Lipstick Creme 720 Fire & Ice

Look 2

Wearing Maybelline 140 Fuchsia Fever (looks a lot brighter in person) - bad camera quality

This is the same day and makeup as the picture above just different lipstick/lipgloss. I wore this pinkish color on my lips during the day. I really love this color. I really like pink shades on my lips because they make my face lighten up a bit. 

Look 3:

Wearing Victoria's Secret Perfect Lipstick in First Kiss (sorry about my awkward face haha)
 

In this third look I used a really pale lipstick and paired it with a clear lipgloss. I quite like the nude lips look for days when I want to look like I'm not trying too hard :) 

I know these are not great quality pictures but I took them with my Ipad so sorry about that guys! 

Left to Right: Maybelline, Revlon, and Victoria's Secret


Let me know what is the type of lipstick that you like to wear the most? Reds, Pinks or Nudes? Or maybe none? I would love to hear your opinion ;)

Kristen Stewart's Style Part 1


Hi everyone!


Let's take a look at another celebrity's style :) This time I wanted to showcase Kristen Stewart. She has been one of my favorite actresses ever since Twilight came out back in 2008. I know she is one of those people that you either really like or really "hate". I happen to really like her and her style!

Kristen in Vogue Magazine
Her style is so unique and I think she always looks beautiful. Her face is always glowing! I know that lately there's been lots of negativity around her due to her unfaithfulness to Rob Pattinson but we are not here to talk about her personal life.  We are here to talk about her as an actress and fashion icon :)

Today I will be showing you guys her more dressy red carpet looks, focusing more on dresses. In Part 2 I will be showing you her casual red carpet looks as well as her "airport" style and day to day style. In part 2, I will also do a Bella Swan inspired look :)

I hope you enjoy!

Long black gowns
Kristen looks lovely in her long black gowns because they are each very different.

These are super cute little black dresses with amazing detail


As you can see, Kristen wears pretty unique garments. She likes to play around with texture, lace, applique, asymmetry and the length of the dress. I think she can pull off a lot of looks. 

So as you can see I did a few inspired looks but could not do every single one since I have so many pictures. If you would like to see any inspired looks of Kristen feel free to point them out and I will do my best to do them :) 

I hope you guys enjoyed this and look forward to part 2 of Kristen Stewart's Style dissection hehe :) 

Hope you're having an amazing day!
