Buxom Lip Gloss

I first stumbled upon Buxom lip gloss by accident when I selected it as my “free gift” from Sephora. I became immediately hooked on the Buxom Full Bodied Lip Gloss in Sweet Thing (hot pink).  Note that it does NOT show up near as birght and bold as it looks in the bottle.  It’s a subtle color with a fab gloss.  I like to wear it on its own or even over another lipstick color to give it a pop.  And just a few minutes ago I noticed that the often sold out sampler pack at Sephora is back in stock and I thought I would share it all with you.

Fall Must Have Booties and Black Denim

love yourself sweatshirt
I’ve decided to be smarter when I shop–more deliberate.  In other words, not just shopping for what’s cute, but shopping for what my wardrobe needs–the classics.  And to get me through this Fall, I knew I would need the perfect brown bootie and a pair of go-to black jeans.  I’ve tried on countless booties and these ones have been my favorite by far.  I love that they give a little extra height with the heel but they are still totally casual.  And these are the MOST comfortable black AG jeans ever, and currently on MEGA sale.  They’re stretchy and I love that the have the cuffed bottoms.  I’m also head over heels for this new Petunia bag from their Cake collection–more details on the bag coming soon.

The Any Occasion Dress: topshop blurred jacquard a-line dress

It’s so helpful to have an “any occasion” dress in your wardrobe–the kind of dress that when all else fails, you know you can throw it on for a wedding, baby shower, bridal shower, special dinner, date night, etc.  And this Topshop blurred jacquard a-line dress has become my current go-to “any occasion” dress. It’s crisp and perfectly tailored. Find dress here

I order Topshop from Nordstroms because of the convenient free shipping and free returns, so there’s no pressure if I don’t like the item or it doesn’t fit.
