Octobe 2014 Glossy Box

I have a confession to make — I’m in love with the idea of the beauty subscription box. Who wouldn’t be? It’s a great investment for those of us who aren’t quite privy to the ins and outs of the beauty world. The ease and excitement of trying new hair, skin, and makeup products picked [...]

My favorite thing about MAC x Prabal Gurung collection is the packaging. Don’t get me wrong, the collections is beautiful but the packaging got me because I’m thinking about the holidays and holiday parties and sequin blazers (I was just shopping for one), so the gold-tone packaging stole my beauty heart.

#TTBToursLA: Le Trench Coat

Le Trench and ThisThatBeauty

The entire time I was in LA during #TTBToursLA, I sort of lived in Le Trench Coat. The shape, the fit, the texture, the fabric — everything about it is 100% my style and pitch perfect for travel.

I mean, I love being able to take that sort of time [...]

TTBFaves with Maree: Featuring La Prairie, Shiseido and LORAC

Shiseido Future LX Solution Foundation

It highlights the best and most loved products and that is saying a lot because bloggers get to try A LOT of products. I even include products in my monthly favorites that I’ve been using for quite some time but just [...]
