I’m sure some of you remember me raving about the Fall Style Must Have Special Edition box a while back and how excited I was about the sneak peek of the Rachel Zoe ring. Well… it has arrived!


Here are the goodies included in the Special Edition Box.



Cynthia Vincent Class Shopper Bag in Leopard – Retail $85

Rachel Zoe Gold Knot Ring – Retail $75


Library of Flowers Bubble Bath – Retail $36

Christian Lacroix Papier Notebook – Retail $14

Beurre & Sel Rosemary Parmesan Cookies – Retail $10




Goldfaden MD Doxtor’s Scrub Ruby Crystal Microderm Exfoliator – Retail $75

Stila Luxe Eye Shadow Palette – Retail $45

Ok – well, I have mixed feelings about this box. I paid a little over $100 for it and the retail value varies between $275-$330 since I found a few things on sale.

The issue I have is I purchased this box because of the title:

PopSugar Special Edition Must Have Fall STYLE Box

I feel like it was a little misleading. I purchased this box in hopes that I would get a cool scarf, some accessories or a clutch (hence the name Fall Style) – not bubble bath and cookies. Regardless I absolutely love PopSugar and they always have some great finds. Not all boxes that come out will fit everyone’s taste. I adore My Rachel Zoe Gold Knot Ring and I am crazy in loveee with the Stila Luxe Eye Shadow Palette. The colors are long-lasting and bold. The microderm exfoliators was a great addition to the box and I ended up gifting this product to my mother because she is really into exfoliators. Also, while I love everything Cynthia Vincent – I  wouldn’t spend $85 for her Classic Shopper but I’m glad it was put in the box and it will definitely get some use 🙂

Did you get this special edition box? If so, what were your feelings on it?

This definitely was one of the most anticipated collections….

Phillip Lim for Target!


The official launch was today, September 15th. Stores opened at 8am and Target left everyone up in the air about the actual time the collection would be released online. I followed #PhillipLimforTarget on Twitter starting at 11pm and it was the best decision ever! Pieces slowly started to become live even though the website home page was not showing it but these people provided links so you could instantly access the merchandise. I was able to add a few things to my cart and leave them there until the purses, which was the 1 item I absolutely needed were available. The taupe Mini Satchel was the first purse released and I instantly added it to a few other items I had stored in my cart and checked out. Since Target offers free shipping with a $50 purchase I figured just to check out and go back and place another order if and when the other items I wanted were released. At 4am the full collection was LIVE! Some people literally stared at their screens and refreshed their computers for hours but luckily… I was able to get some sleep and set alarms to get up and check every so often. It paid off since I was able to purchase everything on my wish list.

Here is what I got:

As we transition into Fall and Winter, our skin can take a real beating. One of the keys to maintain healthy skin and keep it looking great during those cold months is to moisturize. I wanted to share with you some of the products I use to not only keep my skin hydrated but also my lips moisturized for long-lasting care.

Nivea Body Care:

Nivea Express Hydration – This lotion has an ultra light formula enriched with sea minerals. It absorbs within seconds and leaves the skin velvety soft.

Nivea Extended Moisture – This lotion is infused with Provitamin B5 and provides 48 hours of relief for dry and tight skin.

NIVEA’s exclusive Hydra IQ technology supports skin’s own hydration network to unleash deep, non-stop moisture that is long-lasting.

Nivea Bath Care:

Nivea Touch Of… – Nivea has 6 different moisturizing body wash products that leave your body feeling supremely smooth long after your shower. My 2 favorites are ‘Touch of Happiness’, which has an energizing orange blossom scent which awakens your senses and ‘Touch of Sparkle’, which is enriched in sparkling diamond powder and conditioners. It also has a beautiful scent of white calla blossoms.

Nivea Lip Care:

A Kiss of Smoothness – This is by far my favorite lip care product and I make sure to never the house without it. This tube is enriched with natural Shea Butter and Aloe and keeps your lips looking smooth beyond belief.

A Kiss of Olive Oil & Lemon – This product is enriched with lemon extract and Vitamin E. The moisturizing effects of olive oil and the power of lemons nourish dry, rough lips.

A Kiss of Recovery – This product  has a new medicated formula with SPF 15 which is important to keep those lips protected from the sun. It instantly relieves cracked and chapped lips and keep those lips protected from the drying effects of wind and cold weather.

Lip Butters – This product is available in Smooth Kiss, Raspberry Rose Kiss, Caramel Cream Kiss and Vanilla & Macadamia Kiss. They are all enriched with Shea Butter and Almond Oil and they all smell delicious!

What do you think about Kate Upton being named Model of the Year?

How did you feel about the style on the red carpet?

I find myself constantly digging through my clothes and pulling out things to donate and give away. I almost feel like a hoarder…  I have clothes from about 8 years ago that STILL have tags on them. At the time I absolutely needed that outfit or pair of shoes yet they just end up sitting in the closet. I started to realize how many of them still had tags and were brand new so I went searching for a website that I could possibly start to sell my clothes to make some money back and that is when I stumbled across POSHMARK!


Basically you just have to sign up using your iphone or ipad and you get to browse through thousands of closets. They have everything from hi end brands (Chanel, Gucci, Kate Spade etc.) to your basic everyday store (Target, Macys, Mandee etc.) I started a closet and if your interested in seeing what I have for sale – just click the “Shop My Closet” icon on the right hand side of my page 🙂 Make sure to sign up at www.poshmark.com on your iphone or ipad and enter code: HFDUO to receive $5 in credit!
