Patiently Waiting on Mail...

Do all women get the same impatient itch that I do when waiting on orders to come in the mail??? Fortunately for most of you, it arrives within a few days...living in Italy means I have to wait 1-2 weeks. Okay, so really not bad at all considering I live in such a fabulous country, with amazing food, delicate wine, oh sorry, I just got lost for a second. 
Allura...(which is like a verbal pause Italians use that really has no meaning, like well/so/um/huh/you get it)


I hadn't spent any, not one cent, of my Christmas $ until now. My order from GAP came in the mail today and I can't wait to use each item in an outfit post. What I'm most excited about...do leather shorts mean anything to you? 

I got these bad boys on TopShop (click here) for only $20! Imagining these with my new white lace top, or my black lace top with black tights and leopard wedges. I have seriously been daydreaming about these shorts and all the possibilities since I hit "confirm order." Coming soon, to a computer screen near you!

A peek of 2 things I ordered at Forever21, great for all seasons since they're both sheer and lightweight. I wouldn't have normally gravitated to either item, but I'm switching things up and trying to buy clothes with more print.


















  

(F21 Velvet Filigree Jacket/ here, and F21 Abstract Woven Jacket/here)

Forever21 is having a great online sale, 50% off outerwear, sale items starting at $3.99, and lots of great buys for spring 2012. I could have easily spent 100's of dollars, but everything seems to be going at a rapid rate. Can ya blame 'em?

E.L.F. Cosmetic Brushes...Fave or Fail?

Admittedly I've been using the same Mary Kay makeup brushes for a while now, along with a few other random brands thrown in. I was just satisfied with my MK brushes because they washed well and have help up for a really long time. But it was definitely time for a whole new set and I had trouble making up my mind on which makeup brushes to try. At first my plan was to snag a few from different companies to see what I liked best, but then E.L.F. Cosmetics had a 50% off sale with free shipping over $35. Naturally I had to give it a shot since I was getting so much bang for my buck. I already knew that I wasn't too fond of their cheaper $1 brushes so I opted for the Studio Line which ranges from $3-$10 and I'd heard great reviews. All together I got 15 brushes (1 didn't make it to the picture) for only $37, definitely a steal! Keep reading to find out if it was worth it. 
















 I am extremely pleased with these E.L.F makeup brushes. The only one that I'm not too fond of woul…

IPSY: December Glam Bag Review

I will be reviewing the products I received in my December Ipsy bag since I've had the chance to test them out for about a month now. If you don't know already here's the spill. Instead of doing an "unboxing" type of post, I review the products over the course of a month and then let you know what I thought and all the product details. If you didn't see my November bag review you can check it out HERE.

   This post is a bit late, but we'll be getting back on track for February.
   Here's what I received in my December Ipsy Bag...



1). December's Glam Bag- Not going to lie, this month's bag was a disappointment for sure; it felt cheap, was flimsy, and the zipper was in a weird spot. I will probably end up giving it to my daughter to keep her play makeup in.

2). NYX Butter Lip Balm in Red Velvet- Retails for $4.00 (this is the full size)
   I'm not a big tinted lip balm fan, I'd rather just wear a lipstick. This is the first NYX balm I…

Gracelynn Rose Designs & GIVEAWAY

Today I'm very excited to introduce everyone to Gracelynn Rose Designs! The owner, Stephanie, is one of my closest and dearest friends that I consider more of a sister. The first time we met it was instant friendship, now we've known each other for 5 years. Even though we're currently thousands of miles apart it's as if we never left.


Stephanie has been designing her own jewelry since 2001 and selling it to customers along with a few stores. Each design is her own, delicately handcrafted, and unique. She did an entire jewelry line based on Twilight (which of course I loved every piece) that was so beautiful AND she sold a line of pearl & crystal bracelets to David's Bridal and those were stunning.

For my birthday Stephanie sent me a pair of earrings in the mail and I fell in love with them and wear them every chance I get. Might I add that they are 1 of a kind, not another pair like them...



It's obvious that my girl is super talented and I'm so proud of h…
