Beauty { Ipsy Glam Bag | March 2014 }

This was the first time I was disappointed with my Ipsy glam bag…I didn’t like the design on the bag, the shade of the OPI nail polish, and the eyeshadow quad. The only thing I’m looking forward to trying is the Pixi primer, and the bareminerals lipstick. Hopefully next month is better!

I’m still keeping my subscription because I really liked what I received previous months, and it’s a great way to try new products and brands. I’ve been trying to be more adventurous with my makeup and this is a great way to do that.

What did you guys get? What do you think of the products I received? Any other subscription services that you would recommend?


Fashion { Peter Pilotto X Target }

The alarm rang way too early for a Sunday morning. I was tempted to stay cocooned in my warm bed, knowing that crisp winter cold was waiting for me outside. But then I remembered the colorful patterns and styles I had seen in the lookbook for the Peter Pilotto collection for Target, and I sprung (sort of) out of bed.

This was my first time going to a designer collaboration launch at Target, and it was surprisingly calm and tame. I was expecting a lot more running/grabbing/pulling hair. There were only about 20 of us waiting before opening hours, while a few started running the minute the doors opened. Luckily, I was able to snatch up 6 pieces to try on, and ended up getting 3. I was so excited about my purchase that I went straight home to style them for outfits that I can’t wait to wear.

The piece that I really wanted from the lookbook was the sweatshirt, and I am crazy about it. It’s so comfy and the pattern is just amazing. The shirt dress was a last minute grab, and I’m so glad I picked it up because it’s going to be a really versatile piece that I could even pull off at work. And the crop top. Oh the crop top. I have been searching for a unique crop top in a LONG time, and this one has the right fit, the right stretch in the fabric, and the right details with the slits on the top. I am so excited about it, but a bit nervous to show some skin.

Which one is your favorite piece? How would you style them? Were you able to get your hands on a few items from the collection? If so, which ones?
