Intro to Fall Beauty

Happy Monday y’all! I hope you had a great weekend. I spent most of mine cleaning & organizing AND of course watching football. Did your teams win? I had some luck with the Cowboys, but the Razorbacks were a different story. Since a cold front blew in last night & I woke up to temperatures in the 40’s, I thought I would share a few products that are on my intro to fall beauty list.

First up, let’s talk about the Bath & Body Works candles. They aren’t really a beauty product, but as far as I’m concerned, they’re a must-have for fall. I usually have 2 or 3 sitting around my room at any given time. The fall candles are hands down the BEST! I picked up this new one yesterday, Flannel. It’s an interesting smell…a cross between fresh fall air, manly cologne, and laundry. I know, that’s a pretty insane combo. You will just have to smell it for yourself. TIP: save the jar when all of the candle is burned, because they work well for vanity storage. (think cotton balls or hair ties)

Next, let’s talk fall nail colors. I’m gonna be honest, I’m a creature of habit. We are talking white manicures from like April-August. Recently, I’ve decided I needed to get into the fall colors. I recommend the OPI Infinite Shine line, because it’s almost like giving yourself a shellac mani. I recommend the “Black Onyx” which is pictured or “You Don’t Know Jacques” which is the perfect shade of taupe.

Also, Essie makes this beautiful shade, “Angora Cardi“. It’s pretty much sold out everywhere I’ve looked, but I found one bottle at ULTA today! It’s the perfect light burgundy color that goes with everything.

THIS Living Proof hair spray is brand spankin’ new. In fact, they had to grab it from the back for me at Sephora this weekend. The reason I’m including it as a fall beauty must-have is because no one wants flat, lifeless hair during the fall. There is nothing better than big, voluminous curls paired with a plaid scarf! I’m loving this hair spray for two reasons: it smells AMAZING and it provides airy volume. By airy volume, I mean it doesn’t weight your hair down. They also make a travel size which is a great way to try it out on your hair! (it’s also TSA approved at only 3 oz.)

Since this was only an intro to fall beauty, be sure to stay tuned for more fun posts. What are your fall must-haves?



My New BFF: The Bouqs

Happy Thursday! It’s almost the weekend y’all! Today I want to share with you my new BFF: The Bouqs!

What is The Bouqs? I’m SO glad you asked. Straight for their website:

“In short, prior to us, buying flowers online SUCKED. No more! We don’t believe it’s necessary to build tricks or half-truths into a customer experience to get someone to buy a product. Maybe that used to be the case, but with us it will never be. We believe we can be straightforward and honest and still build a really great business. Being good to the customer is not antithetical to financial success. The two are, actually, best friends.

We think of our customers as friends. Think about it: giving the gift of flowers is kind. It’s nice. It’s thoughtful. We like people that are these things – and that’s what you’re here to do. We love that! We will treat you as part of the family in every way we possibly can, and we will help you show love to those around you through flowers.

Love. An easy word to throw around. But we honestly love this stuff. Building something new. Changing the way something is done. Maybe we’re not changing the world, but we’re making it easier for you to send a meaningful message via flowers. And that’s pretty cool.”

When The Bouqs contacted me about a review here on the blog, I was ecstatic. I’m such a girly girl and flowers are the perfect addition to any every room in my house. I headed on over to the website & immediately chose the “Great Pumpkin” bouq, because I’m ALL about orange for fall! I also chose this bouq, because lilies were my mom’s favorite flower <3

When your Bouqs arrive, it’s awesome because they come in a super cute box & are packed perfectly.

Also, they provide instructions for those of us (ME) who need a little guidance in putting flowers in a vase.

I added some super cute (DOLLAR TREE) ribbon for a cute added pop to the clear vase. I’m in love with the maroon/orange color combo I’ve got going on here.

Vase=$1. Ribbon=$1. My bouq=PRICELESS. 

I’ve put these blooms in almost every room in just two days. I seriously LOVE staring at these amazingly beautiful flowers! I LOVE THE BOUQS.

Also, their farm-direct method ensures that stems are not wasted in the supply chain, while other suppliers can waste up to 1 of every 3 stems. Further, partner farms provide services like living wages, childcare, healthcare, and adult education for their workers. You can definitely feel good about shopping at The Bouqs!
