EVERYONE LOVES A GIVEAWAY

Happy Friday! What better way to celebrate the weekend than with a giveaway, am I right? I’m so excited to finally host a giveaway, and I’m even more pleased to be partnering with Plum Boutique to do it! It’s always great to team up with other small businesses, but especially one located in my college town of Waco, TX. Sic ’em Bears forever. I’m actually jealous of what y’all have the chance to win: a huge Capri Blue candle that smells like actual heaven (tropical fruits & sugared citrus), and some gorgeous stud earrings from Everlasting Joy Jewelry (another Baylor alum business!). Pop on over to my Instagram, which hello, you should already be following, to enter! That’s also where you’ll find the full contest rules and all that fun stuff. Good luck and have a fab weekend y’all!

IT’S SCARF SEASON, Y’ALL

Scarf: Plum Boutique

Happy first day of FALL! Not to be cliche, but Fall is by far my favorite season. I think every girl ever would agree with that statement, but for me the season is about so much more than pumpkin spice lattes. It’s about clothes, y’all. We finally bid farewell to the sweatiness of summer (maybe that’s just me…) and get to pile on the layers! Ok, so there’s still a couple weeks until the cool weather really sets in, but now is the time to stock up on fall faves, such as scarves. A great scarf, like the one pictured above, is the best way to pull your outfit together…with minimal effort. Leggings, a little sweater (bonus points for a cape), topped with a plaid infinity, and you’re good to go. I love this one, from Plum Boutique in Waco, TX! It’s super cozy, but also thin enough to double loop without looking like you’re wearing a neck brace haha. Plus, the price is most certainly right, at only $28!

Plum recently launched their new website (Plumtique.com) and I’m pretty much obsessed with everything. From apparel, to jewelry, and home accessories, they’ve got you covered. Definitely go check out the site and treat yourself to some goodies. For my Baylor readers (sic ’em!), head to their adorable shop in Spice Village. Also, give them a follow on Instagram for a wonderful feed full of inspiration! Be sure to check back on Friday, as I’ll be hosting a little Plum Boutique giveaway!

I hope everyone is having a great first day of fall, thanks for popping by!

PRODUCT REVIEW: ORIGINS BRUSH CLEANER

Before-After-brushes
Brushes (top to bottom): 12 | 34

HI! I’m back from my little Philly (and NYC, for a day) adventure. I had the best time exploring both cities with my boyfriend, Mike, but it’s always nice to be back home. Today, I’m reviewing Origins brush cleaner. My mom is almost obsessively clean, and would probably say dirty makeup brushes (/dirty cosmetics in general) are a cardinal sin. Though I grew up with this mentality, I put off washing my brushes. They lose their shape, never dry in a timely fashion, and it’s just kind of a chore. This product, however, makes it SO easy. Spritz some solution onto the brush and simply tissue off the makeup residue. My brushes, though not terribly dirty before, look brand new. They also feel incredibly soft and smell amazing. This is such a wonderful product for maintaining the integrity of your brushes, and I would most certainly recommend it to anyone looking to make this chore easier!

Helloooo and happy September! Not only is it my birthday month, but I’m also heading out to Philly and NYC in a couple weeks for a wedding with my boyfriend! I’m jazzed to get to know his family and also the city of Philadelphia! If y’all have any recommendations on fun spots, shoot me an email. Today, I’m talking about Rocksbox! I first heard about this awesome service a few months ago via Instagram and I was over the moon when they emailed me to partner up. If you don’t already know, Rocksbox is kind of like old-school Netflix, but for designer jewelry. After you take a fun little style assessment, a stylist will send you three handpicked pieces. You have the option to keep one or more (for an insider’s price) or you can wear them around and send ’em back in exchange for a brand new selection! You can do this as many times a month as you want, for just $19. I think this is such an awesome concept, especially for college girls (hello recruitment!). I’m always so hesitant to spend a lot of money on trend or statement pieces, because I just don’t get the wear out of them. God love ya, KScott, but I’ll sink that $200 into a Yurman, thank you very much. Rocksbox basically affords you a rotating jewelry wardrobe featuring brands like Loren Hope, Gorjana, House of Harlow, and yes, Kendra Scott. It’s a fun way to “try before you buy” and even step out of your comfort zone a bit, style wise. It’s risk free shopping, y’all!

I’m not one for subscription boxes, but I’m seriously so obsessed with Rocksbox and you will be too! Click here to get your first month FREE or just enter code 10thandjamesxoxo at checkout!
