First Favorites of the year! I can't believe the first month of 2017 is already gone! In the true spirit of January, (aka: get your life together month) this month has been all about healthy habits, fresh new scents, makeup, and the one book that I've been devouring page by page, and recommending to anyone who will listen!

April Birchbox

How pretty is this month's box?! Birchbox teamed up with Rifle Paper Co. for a beautiful floral box that's perfect for spring! I can't get over how lovely it is! I don't want to throw it away!But just as exciting, is what came inside the box! AMAZING hair products from Davines, gorgeous organic pigments from Au Naturale, and lovely scents from English Laundry!

February Favorites

This month was full of rediscoveries and a few new favorites. February was all about pretty neutrals and muted colors to transition from winter to spring! First up, these gorgeous shades from Essie! I've been loving rotating and mixing these three for an understated but fresh mani. Imported Bubbly (left) has a beautiful pearl-effect on the nail, and looks amazing paired with Mochachino (right) which is a pretty light brown with tiny light-reflecting particles in it. Sugar Daddy (center) is the ultimate natural color. It adds just a slight polished pink to the nail, and pulls together whatever look you're wearing without drawing too much attention.

August Birchbox Unboxing!

New month, new Birchbox! This month was probably my favorite in terms of the products I received! I've had a chance to test out all of them a bit and I wish I could buy full sizes of just about all of them! 1. Beauty Protector Protect and Detangler This pretty red bottle claims to be a detangler, heat protector, leave-in conditioner, shine spray, and color protector, all while being weightless and non-greasy. If so, this bottle could be my holy grail. After using it on dry hair before using a flat-iron, it definitely helps frizz, has more shine and doesn't add any weight or grease, but we'll see about its other claims with time. So far, it's a winner! 2. COOLA Organic Makeup Setting Spray COOLA has a lot of great products (especially for the summer months!) I've never tried their makeup setting spray, but it seems to be a fairly decent one. It doesn't hold a candle to the Urban Decay version, but if you're more environmentally conscious, this one is a great option! 3. Harvey Prince Hello Perfume I am, admittedly, a perfume sample hoarder. I love keeping them in my bag for a quick refresher (and I have about 13 extras in a box...).  At first whiff, this one smelled like an old Lemongrass body lotion I had from Bath and Body works in middle school, but after a bit I picked up on the light citrus notes and really liked it! I'm not sure I would purchase the full-size, but it's a lovely light scent if you're not into heavy perfumes. 4. LAQA & Co. Charm School Kit - Humble Brag By far my favorite thing in the box! I expected it to be a very sheer lip balm, but it's actually VERY pigmented and oh so gorgeous! It looks gorgeous on both my lips and cheeks. I am absolutely buying the set of three, which comes with this bright pink, a cherry red, and a light peach. LOVE! I've only very recently gotten into hand creams, and this so far, is my favorite. I liked the Harvey Prince version, but the Supergoop is a bit more hydrating, absorbs quicker, and has a lighter scent.

The Orange Edit

I still had this dress in my closet from last summer, (though my Shirttail Dress is another good option) and paired with my new Clinique Lip Pop in the shade Poppy Pop, and Essie polish in the shade Geranium. The vibrant orange mixed with more red-orange hues is a match made in heaven!

As I scrolled the internet looking for more "orange inspiration" I stumbled upon this Topshop dress and fell in love! The scarf patter, the colors, the summery silhouette, everything about this dress screams chic summer sundress! And I cant think of anything better to pair them with than these chunky red-orange gladiator heels from New Look!

In My Bag: Diane Von Furstenberg Micro Milo Snake Crossbody

I was lucky enough to have this gorgeous little gem given to me by my grandmother as a graduation gift, and it has quickly become my most-used bag! It's large enough to hold the essential plus a few extras and the chic faux snakeskin adds something interesting to any outfit! It actually holds more than you think it would. I was surprised to find how much I could fit! It has  small pocket inside the main compartment that's perfect for holding your phone, a zippered compartment on the back which is nice for keeping cash, cards, ID, etc. and I'm not quite sure what I'll use the front pocket for, possibly a metrocard, but for now it's just a pretty addition.
