And here’s my review of the awesome Dollar Shave Club!
I’m a total sucker for packaging and from their creative website and commercial I expected a lot. And Dollar Shave Club did not disappoint! The logo is hip and masculine, and your first delivery comes in this awesome kraft envelope.
In your first delivery you’ll get the blades (of course), but also a super nice handle, and note of sorts from the company.
And I just loooooove their cheeky notes. I’m not sure if you can read it from this picture but it says “Official Member, Present this membership card at any bar in America for a free drink*” with the * reading: “Not really; Please don’t drink and shave”. LOVE.
Here it is with the blade on it. And my husband just looooooves it. Truth be told, I love it too – I’ve definitely used it on my legs…
And that’s my unsponsored totally truthful review! Such a great idea, and I wish the company lots of success. If you’re interested in getting this for you or a man in your life, here is the link!
The winner of the Too Faced make up has been notified! I used a random number generator found here to decide for me.
I’ve told you all about Birchbox, the beauty subscription program for women, but I just found a program that I think I might like even better. It’s called the Dollar Shave Club, and it’s a subscription program that sends you razor handle/body right away, and then new razor blades every month so you don’t have to remember to buy it. Better yet, it’s $1, $6, or $9 a month – depending on the blades that you choose. Check out their awesomely amusing commercial:
As soon as I found this website I had to order it right away for my fiancé, and he’s really looking forward to his first delivery. (You can order it for yourself too! I’m sure I’ll find myself using them…). I’ll have to post our review when it arrives!
Are there any other awesome subscription services I’m missing? Let me know!
My amazing aunt and uncle and parents threw my fiancé and me a family wedding shower on Sunday (thank you!), so it was the perfect opportunity to get dressed up and try out some awesome new Too Faced make-up I recently got my hands on. And here is the best part: I’m giving away everything below. See the end of this post for details!
After trying this foundation once I’m pretty sure I’ll be wearing it all summer. It’s really light, has just enough coverage, gives a hint of shimmer, and has SPF 20 (because who wants to age prematurely?)
It turns out this eyeliner is not just eyeliner, it’s a Long-Stemmed Lashes Lash Enhancing Serum & Eyeliner Duo. Apparently after 4 – 8 weeks your eyelashes will be longer and thicker – yes please! Beyond that lovely benefit this liquid eyeliner was really easy to use and stayed put all day.
This blush (first on the left) was really subtle and was a great mix between bronzer and blush. It will be great for weekend picnics or weekday work!
And this eyeshadow set is just the greatest. The first trio is matte and the other two are shimmery, one more than the other. I’m really looking forward to using these all summer – maybe even for my wedding?! It managed to outlast the sunshine of Sunday!
Here’s a little sample of how I used it on Sunday.

So last week it seemed that a lot of people like little lovelies as much as I do! So I thought I’d do another post since, let’s be honest, they’re still on my mind. I’m so inspired! I’d love to hear which one is your favorite or what little details made your day special.
It was gorgeous this past weekend, and now has been cold and rainy during the week (hello spring! where are you?) so I’m doing what I often do when I wish it were warmer… plan out outfits for the warmer days ahead.
Welcome to this week’s Wedding Wednesday! As I might have mentioned last week, we have a lot of the big stuff done (photographers, DJ, food, etc.) and now it’s all about the details! So I’ve started to scour blogs to find some inspiration for the little lovely touches that will really make it our day. Today’s images are from 100 Layer Cake.
Do you have any favorite details that you’ve seen or you incorporated in your own big day?
I loooove these hand painted paper bags from this wedding!.
I think I may have posted this picture before, but I’m so obsessed with this blush draping from this wedding. I feel like I could make this. Has anyone tried making something like this?
I’ve long been obsessed with bunting. Definitely incorporating some bunting somewhere! We even used some bunting in our engagement photos. (source)
There are a few benches and the like around the venue so I really want to incorporate matching pillows and throws. (source)
Looooving the colored glasses and billy balls. We all know I’m kind of a sucker for anything French inspired like this shoot
Look at these gorgeous feather stirrers! Tutorial to make them here.
This cake topper is so fun, whimsical, and simple. (source)
If you don’t want to hear about wedding planning I totally understand if you want to stop reading. Promise. Feel free to skip it all together or just admire the pretty photos. We’ll see you back again tomorrow.
Okay, you’ve got the dress, the colors picked out, the photographers – all the big things. Phew. Give yourself a pat on the back. That was tough/ nerve-wracking/ exhausting/ exhilarating/ fun. So what’s next on your wedding planning list? Accessories and detailed decor, of course. (because let’s be real, decor is just accessories for the table, right?) So today I’m focusing on hair. I’m not sure I could pull off these gorgeous pieces from Mignonne Handmade, but I’d sure like to try. That might be hard though because I can’t pick a favorite!
I hope you all had a great weekend and St. Patrick’s day! The weather was uncharacteristically dreary and cold here in Los Angeles, so I spent most of it inside with some good reading, baking, and soup. But tomorrow marks the first official day of spring and I’m looking forward to some warmer weather!
