Lipstick: A way to customize your look with just a swipe of the hand.

Enter YSL Rouge Pur Couture. I was able to try out these beauties and so happy to do so!

The two colors I tried were #19 Fuchsia and #9 Rose Stiletto. Fuchsia is a bright fuchsia pink and Rose Stiletto is a berry rose color. I am so impressed by this product. The formula is just dreamy: super creamy, hydrating, but so vibrant and pigmented in color! It is very long lasting and does not dry or crack as the day goes on. With just one stroke, you are ready for the day!

The only downside I see is the price. At $36 a pop, it would definitely make a dent in my wallet, but the pros are really outweighing the con for me.

Overall, so satisfied with this lipstick and is probably one of the best that I have tried!

With Love,
Steph

FabFitFun Box: Summer 2015

FabFitFun Box: Summer 2015

Summer time and the living is easy! The snow and cold are officially gone from Denver and it is time for warmth and fun!

This box was AWESOME! Check out the goods below:

Wren 14Kt Gold and Black Sapphire Necklace- $100

I. Am. In. Love. With. This. Necklace! It is so simple and delicate, which makes it a great daily staple piece. My favorite item from this box!

The Everyday Wireless Speaker by FabFitFun- $29.99

After getting a speaker for my shower, I found myself wanting to get another one that I could take with me to the lake and beach- and presto- FabFitFun had me covered! Great accessory for all of your summer-time activities.

Inkling Scents Sultry Roll-On Oil Perfume- $25

This is the first oil perfume I’ve ever tried and I am quite impressed. The scent is really alluring and musky (my favorite type of scent), but light. The oil takes a bit to getting used to, but overall I like it.

Gorge “I’ll Make You Look Amazing” Daily Spray- $24.95

Silky. Smooth. Conditioned. Shiny. Soft. If any of those words are how you want your hair to be described as, you need to adopt this daily spray now. This product has completely replaced my serums, oils, and leave-in conditioners. Holy Grail for Hair!

Tarte LipSurgence Lip Gloss- $19

I was a little apprehensive with this product- I’m really picky with glosses, since anything with a sticky consistency goes directly in the garbage. This gloss was different, though. It instantly made my lips look SO moisturized and SO plump. It has more of a tacky feeling, which I can definitely deal with given the results.

Pros: The color is gorgeous and makes your lips look SO moisturized!

Cons: Get a bit tacky- it’s not sticky, but it does feel thick.

FabFitFun x CosmoBody Jump Rope- $14

I bought a jump rope earlier this year that was just too long to use, so this is a nice addition.

Scratch Nail Wraps- $12

I’m not totally crazy about the color/print that I recieved in this box, but I’m now open to the idea of the stick on nail wraps. They’re easy and quick to use

Headspace 3-Month Subscription- $38.85

I really like the concept behind Headspace. They offer exercises all focused on working-out your mind through meditation and mindfulness techniques. Head to the Headspace website for a free trial.

Hello Konjac Cleansing Sponge- $12

I actually already use a similar product (which I love), so I know this product is the bomb!

Vaseline Intensive Care Aloe Soothe Spray Moisturizer- $7.99

I am all about the spray moisturizers now! This product is just so convenient to use and smells so incredibly refreshing. Five stars!

FabFitFun Box: Spring 2015

FabFitFun Box: Spring 2015

Spring-time, spring-cleaning, spring-break. Spring is associated with a lot of different things, but mostly it is change.

This year, I decided I wanted to make a change and try out some cool new things…and that is when I discovered the FabFitFun box!

The Spring 2015 box is my first box and I am SO happy with the quality of the products in the box and the overall value of the box.

What I received in the box:

Jules Smith Scarf- $42

Cute colors, soft, and very spring time appropriate! Made of lightweight cotton viscose.

Palmetto Derma Collagen Booster and Restoration Serum- $48

I love serums and my skin seems to be loving this one. Perfect addition to my beauty routine!

Merrithew 3 DVD Set “Intense Body Blast” & $25 Gift Card- $61

Work out videos are the best way to get my butt off the couch and live an active lifestyle. This DVD mixes HIIT with Pilates for a balanced session. Very cool that it came with a gift card so I could invest in a new yoga mat.

ORLY Nail BB Creme- $15

Never knew BB creme for nail existed, but here it is! I’m not sure about the smoothing, moisturizing, and brightening claims, but it sure does look pretty.

ORLY Nail Polish “Cake Pop”- $8.50

Nice neutral polish perfect for springtime.

Yasi Metallic Flash Tattoos – $36

I’m not really into the flash tattoo, so I’ll probably end up handing these over to my little sister.

Rifle Paper Co. Cities Coaster Set – $16

Adorable coaster set featuring New York, London, Tokyo, and Paris! Love it!

OFRA Cosmetics Eyeshadow Brush Duo (#11 and #20) – $45.90

These brushes could not be more welcomed, as I was in desperate need for more brushes as my makeup collection has grown! Super soft.

Sprout It App Card & Miracle Grow Gro-able Seed Pod – $1.49

This was such a cute item. I’ve been wanting to grow a little herb garden and I received a basil pod. So excited for this to grow and incorporate fresh basil into my meals.

Cosmos Creations Premium Puffed Corn -$1.49

Interesting item- I got the caramel coated popcorn, and while it was very tasty, it was just to much on the sweet side for me to really enjoy.

Vow To Be Chic Gift Card: One free dress rental (up to $125) with the rental or purchase of another dress

I don’t have an occasion coming up that I would need a dress for, so this will probably go to the wayside.

Hello Fresh Gift Card: $40 Off First Week of Delivery Service

HelloFresh is a weekly meal-kit delivery services that provides fresh ingredients and recipe cards to make meals at home. I like the idea of this and may try it out! If I do, I’ll share my thoughts 🙂

Fashion-forward fitness gear? Yes, please!

Fashion-forward fitness gear? Yes, please!

In this day in age, I believe it is impossible to not reference or think about something diet, exercise, fitness, or health related on a day to day basis. It’s a hot topic and since we live in a high-tech world, there is always some new technology that comes out to help us keep track of our fitness goals. One that has always been on my radar, but that I haven’t pursued is from FitBit. In case you’re not up-to-speed on the super successful brand that basically has a cult following, Fitbit boasts a line of small, wearable trackers that record your steps taken, distance, calories burned, active minutes, and some even track your sleep patterns. Those stats also syncs with your computer and select smartphones. No doubt, it’s a cool piece of hardware.

While this handy, dandy tracker would great to own, I have just never made that leap into purchasing one. Mainly, because I wasn’t sure how much I’d use it due to its athletic appearance. I’m a girl who loves to look put-together when out and I don’t think a tracker strapped to my clothes or wrist would compliment my office attire very nicely. So, there was that…until now.

Fitbit has just made the “Tory Burch for Fitbit” accessory line available for pre-order.

Now they have my attention.

Tory Burch for Fitbit is an accessory collection debuting fashion-forward pieces to fit the Fitbit Flex and they are exactly what Fitbit needed to gain my business. There are four pieces featured in the line: the Metal Hinged Bracelet, Metal Fret Pendant, and two Silicon Printed Bracelets in navy and fuchsia.

My favorite from the line (and, unfortunately, the most expensive) is the Metal Hinged Bracelet priced at $195. It is sleek, simple, and chic; perfect for going to work, a night out, or lunch with friends. I really like that is in the same form as the actual Fitbit Flex. It’s still worn on your wrist, so the accuracy should be on point with the normal Flex band. Unlike the bracelet, I feel that wearing your tracker in the Pendant accessory would compromise the accuracy of the stats since necklaces tend to bounce around during typical movement not necessarily when just walking (any thoughts on this?).

A more price-friendly option are the Silicon bracelets, priced at $38.

Overall, I am in love with this collaboration and I am scouring the internet now for any deals for the Fitbit Flex. After that, next on my shopping wish list is the Tory Burch Metal Hinged Bracelet!

Do you have any thoughts on this collab? Does it make a difference in your likelihood to purchase the Flex or-if you already have the Flex- any of the Tory Burch accessories? Let me know in the comments.

With Love,

Steph
