January Play by Sephora Review

January's box was not one of my favorites. One product didn't work for me at all.
Tarte Frxxxtion stick- This is a product that I hadn't heard of before I got it. I was impressed with it. I used it on days I didn't Clarisonic. It's a nice gentle exfoliation. I can see this product being really good for traveling and for putting in a workout bag. $22

Clinque Almost Lipstick in Black Honey- This is a very dark color in the tube but it goes on pretty and sheer. It's a really nice neutral color. I really like how moisturizing it is. $17

Oaui treatment masque- I wasn't wowed by this. It wasn't terrible but I feel like it didn't do anything to my hair. It didn't feel like a mask to me it was very thin so I had to use a lot of product. $32

AmorePacific CC Cushion- This product just didn't work for me. It wasn't near my skin tone. I tried using the darker color to contour but it didn't go either. It does have SPF 50, which is a real plus. $60

Youth to the People Kale + Spinach + Hyaluronic Acid Age Prevention Cream- This was alright for me. I like that it absorbed quickly. I'm not concerned about age prevention right now. It's a good moisturizer but it's not a wow for me.  $48 

I wasn't crazy about this box but I do like the Frxxtion stick and the almost lipstick.

Leopard and Burgundy

It's been a super mild winter. So it's been nice not having to be bundled up all the time. I wore this look with tights and my work shoes to an event at work. I swapped out the tights and flats for over the knee boots for a date night. I'm really liking the combo of leopard and burgundy.

Pink Pieces under $50

Even though Valentine's is over I still love pink. I've found some great pink pieces and they are all under $50!
This is an interesting tee. I like how the ruffle carries over from the sleeves. $35
I love a bright pink bag. I use mine a ton. This one has a great color and it's a steal for $19.99.
Pink pants are a great way to add some fun into a business look. This would look great with a white or a bright colored blazer. $27.99
I like the little details in this jacket. It has little lazer cuts. I like that it's dainty but a little tough. $32.90

I wanted to show some cute Valentine's pieces.
These heart pj's are so cute! They look warm too. $24.99

Pink and Stripes

I wore this to go see a burlesque show with my friend. Before the show we stopped for dinner and after we got milkshakes and fries. It was a more modern burlesque show then I've seen before. I got this bag back in November I knew it would be perfect for around Valentine's Day. It doesn't hold too much which makes it great for a night out.

January Budget

It's time for my monthly budget post. I got a few tunics I've been wearing leggings to work a lot and wanted some things to go with them.
1. Lularoe Sundae leggings- I'm not totally on the Lularoe train but I do like the leggings for work. I have a pink and purple pair,a chocolate box pair and now an ice cream pair. I really like these for work. $25
2. Black Tunic- I got this to go with my leggings. I love the sheer sleeves. I would also wear it with skirts. $18.99 similar
3. Red Tunic- I like this color and I don't have a red top.  $15.99 similar
4. White tunic- In addition to going with all of my leggings for work I think this will look great with skinny pants. $16.99 similar
5. Rainbow Stripes- I've been seeing multicolor stripes a lot and I think they are so cute. I wanted some of my own. $6.99 similar
6. Striped Shirt- This shirt is a thicker knit, it's pretty sturdy. You can't go wrong with black and white stripes. $9.99 similar
7. Pink skirt- This skirt is so fun! It's a great color and I like the seaming. It makes it a little more interesting from a regular mini. $9.99 similar
8. Orange skirt (not shown) The orange skirt I got also has some interesting seam details. $22.99 similar

Items 2-8 are from ThredUp. There was an app sale so I got 20% off and I had a $3.95 credit. My original total was $101.93 with my discount it became $77.59

Grand Total for the month ($77.59 + 25)  $102.59

December Play by Sephora Review

December's theme was the partygoers. I was really happy with this box.
Urban Decay All Nighter-  I had heard of this setting spray before and had been wanting to try it. So I was pretty excited when I saw it in the box. It really makes makeup last. Full Size $31 

Dry Bar Detox Dry Shampoo- My hair doesn't do too much. I use this dry shampoo in-between washes and it gets rid of oil and it gives my hair volume. I'm so impressed with this product. Full Size $23

Lancome Hypnose Drama Mascara- This is not my favorite mascara. It separates my lashes pretty well but I think I prefer Urban Decay Perversion. Full Size $27.50

Makeup For Ever Smoothing Primer- This primer claims to smooth and fill pores. I have pretty big pores on my nose and they looked a bit smaller. The good thing about this line of primers is there is one for every concern. Full Size $37

Sephora  Cream Lipstain Always Red- I already own this shade and love it. This is such a great red for me. This isn't super moisturizing but it is comfortable. They added a lot of colors to the cream lipstains. Full Size $14 

Elizabeth and James Nirvana Rose-  I didn't like this perfume. The scent was a little too strong for me. I did get a mini rollerball of Nirvana Bourbon with a purchase I made and I love that scent. There is Nirvana for everyone. Full Size $65

Business Barbie

This is kind of a business Barbie look. I love the bright pink and orange together. I wore it to a networking event. I really like this paired with my ice cream tote. It's a little professional but very fun. When you sell sweets you can be a little more fun with your business looks.

How to look cute and cozy this winter

The weather here has been crazy! Snowing one day and a nice sunny day the next. Looking cute and staying warm can be tough. I've found some great pieces that will keep you warm and cute.

A great coat is the best way to stand out in the winter. I like to have light weight coats for the times between sweater weather and super warm coat. These 3 coats make a great impact.
1. This blush faux fur coat is very glam. It's great for night out and would look great with jeans and a tee. $77
2. The red military inspired coat has some girly touches with the full skirt and ruffles. And it's a steal. $44.99 
3. The red plaid is super cozy. This isn't as girly and it looks better for warmer climates. $99.90
I LOVE faux fur earmuffs.They are my go-to winter accesory. They keep your ears warm but don't mess up your hair like a hat. If you have to wear heavy down coats they are a great way to add a pop of color.
1. These bright pink earmuffs are so fun! $12.50
2. These aren't totally fur. They have a bit of plaid so they aren't as dramatic. $17.99
3. These jeweled earmuffs are a steal! They are under $5. $4.99
Blanket scarves were my go-to during craft fairs. I always felt like I was put right under a cold air vent or next to a door. These scarves kept me warm and stylish.
1. A ton of blanket scarves are plaid so this leopard is a nice change. $19.99
2. I love the colors on this INC scarf. It also doesn't look very bulky. $38.50
3. This is a classic plaid blanket scarf but it has nice vibrant colors that can go with everything in your closet. $14.98

Another tip I have is fleece lined everything! If you are a leggings person these leggings are only $6.80. I love skirts so fleece lined tights get me through winter. This pair is only $10.
When I'm going to be outside in the cold for a while, I like to layer regular leggings under my jeans. When I went to Christmas Town, I did that and didn't feel too cold.

Ottomans under $250

I've been working on decorating my space. My couch doesn't have an ottoman and I really like ottomans because it's extra seating if I'm entertaining, storage and a place to stretch out. The couch is a hard to match color so I think going with a pop of color is a better option.  I've rounded up 5 great options for under $250 most are under $200.
This bench might be a little too thin. I like the navy and it also comes in a nice teal color. It does have storage. $119.99
I love the color of this one. This green would look really nice with the blush pink on my walls. If I don't use it for an ottoman it might be a stool for my vanity. $95.19 
I think I'd prefer this one as a stool instead of an ottoman because it doesn't have storage. I think it's a really nice color. $66.49
This ottoman is microfiber so it'll feel nice. It has a ton of storage. I like the tufting on top and the buttons on the bottom. $157.99

This is the front runner for me. I love the color and the tufting. I think the square is a great shape for my space. It also has a nice amount of storage. $213.99
