DAILY LOOK BOX 2

Hey y'all. I received my second daily look box the other day and I wanted to share what was inside! For those of you who want to know more of the details about this box, you can read my blog post here for all of the details. This month, I received 9 items and of the 9, I kept 2. The first one I kept was this denim shirt- seriously the coziest, comfiest shirt!! I will be photographing the other shirt soon so I didn't want to spoil it just yet. Some of the jeans I received but didn't photograph were: J Brand and  Just Black. These are both cute, but I just couldn't get myself to spend that much money on jeans right now. 

You're probably wondering "Is this box worth it?" Well, I'll break it down for you. Out of the 9 items I received, I loved 2, liked 4, hated 3. I ended up keeping the 2 I loved. The styling fee is $40, which goes towards your purchase. I enjoy the excitement of trying on new items, so for me it's worth it because I know I will find at least one thing that I love and that $40 can go towards an item. I will admit I was a little disappointed in this month's box compared to last month because 3 of the items were definitely not my style. What do y'all think?

THE BEST WORKOUT ATTIRE

The secret is out y'all-  Fitness Collective is my new favorite website for workout gear that is both stylish and comfortable. Seriously, there are so many great items. I love the items I received from here. My absolute favorites are this black top and Koral colorblock leggings. They are both so silky smooth haha.  I keep wanting to wear these to my workout, but then I immediately remember it's 100+ degrees here in Austin and doing my workout class in these is a no go for now :( However, I did wear these last night when we went to get pizza. Nothing better than pretending you just went to a workout as you slam some pizza haha.  I can't wait to wear these to workout classes in the Fall because they are just that amazing. I kept making my husband feel them because I wouldn't stop talking about how comfortable they are. Would it be weird if I slept in these? (Just kidding) I could go on and on about how much I love the items at Fitness Collective, but I'll stop now and let you check it out for yourself. You will thank me later :) Hope y'all are having a spectacular week!

ELEVE COSMETICS

I'm excited to share with y'all my thoughts on my collaboration with a local beauty brand, Eleve Cosmetics. Eleve Cosmetics is an all natural, vegan based beauty line. So what do I personally love about Eleve? Well for one, I love that I can support local businesses here in Austin. I'm also a huge fan of how they use all natural ingredients. I am a minimalist when it comes to makeup, and I prefer a more natural look when it comes to bronzer and eyeshadow, which is why I love these products. The only bold things I like when it comes to my makeup routine are my eyeliner and lips. I LOVE me a bold lip y'all! I'm posting below the products I received from their summer collection, which is a must have:)

1.) This perfect tan bronzer, which is enhanced with natural SPF and vitamin E. I love the gold shimmer finish of this bronzer.




2.) This dreamy palette, which contains 6 eyeshadows and 2 blushes/bronzers






3.) This rose gold lip gloss (pictured on my hand on the right), which contains green tee extract, natural plant waxes and vitamin E. I LOVE this one for daytime (it's very simple and natural). 


4.) Last but not least and my favorite of the lip colors is this bright pink liquid matte lipstick. This one contains rosemary and sunflower oils and leaves your lips super soft and moisturized (this one contains beeswax and isn't vegan).




All items are c/o Eleve Cosmetics

FACE TO FACE SPA

I'm excited to collaborate with my new favorite spa Face to Face.  I received a facial there the other week and it was amazing-- my skin still looks really clear from 2 weeks ago. I will definitely be back for another facial, but I decided to try something I've never done before for this service- eyelash extensions! I've heard people rave about them so decided I needed to give them a try. I went to the Face to Face spa location in Westlake in Austin, TX. Morgan was the name of my esthetician. I'm not going to lie and say I wasn't nervous because I definitely was. The thought of just lying down for 2 hours with my eyes shut made me really anxious haha. Morgan actually finished after 1.5 hours, so it wasn't that bad. Since I just had these done 5 days ago, I'm not sure if I'll be going back every 2 weeks or every 3 weeks. I will just see how they feel after this week. Just FYI, for me, it doesn't feel any different having these extensions. The look is definitely more dramatic lol, but they feel normal. I'm posting some before and after pictures below-let me know what y'all think :)

DAILY LOOK REVIEW

I'm excited to collaborate with Daily Look and show y'all some items I received. So you're probably asking what is Daily Look? Basically, it's a subscription box where a stylist picks out items for you based on your style preferences. You can either do monthly, every other month, or every 3 months. You pay a $40 styling fee for the stylist to pick out 7-11 items based on your preferences. You can use this styling fee towards the items. For reference, each item I received was average $80. You can choose what stores you normally shop at and select how much you normally spend on items. I received 8 items and everything fit perfectly except for the black dress & bathing suit. The bathing suit was a Mara Hoffman bathing suit. I absolutely love Mara Hoffman, but I always size up in her bathing suits. I received an x-small, but I think a small would have fit perfectly. So now lets talk about the details and what outfit I should keep.

1st outfit: This first outfit includes this asymmetrical hemmed black/white striped dress paired with a black vest with pleated detailing on the back. I LOVE this look because I can easily transition it to fall with the vest and booties. I can also lose the vest and pair the dress with cute sneakers for a laid back, casual look or just some heels to make it dressier.

2nd outfit: The 2nd look includes a frayed lightweight flannel shirt and jeans that fit me perfectly. I was actually very shocked that these jeans were a perfect fit because of my petite frame (it's always so hard for me to find stuff that fits me perfectly without getting it altered). This outfit is another great transitional piece because you can layer this flannel shirt over a t shirt, tie it around your waist, or just wear it regularly.

3rd outfit: I love this dress, but the knot detailing fit me a little strange because of my height. It's also a little see through, but would make for the cutest bathing suit coverup.

So, what did y'all think of my items? Do you think this box is worth it? Personally, I really liked it and felt like my stylist chose items that were both stylish and fit me well. I will probably do the every 3 month option. Which outfit do y'all think I should keep? I'm torn between outfit 1 & 2. Here's the link to sign up if anyone is interested: click here
