Hello darlings! I know it’s been quite a while – I didn’t mean to go a week without posting but it happened….so here we are! I know it’s technically Tuesday but I wanted to go ahead and do a Mail Monday post because it’s been quite a while. First, a quick life update! Here are some things that are going on in my life right now.

  • I’m rewatching The Office again because honestly, I have a problem you guys. Please tell me I’m not the only one.
  • I went ahead and opened an Etsy shop for Everyday Unicorns to try to reach some new people! If you have an Etsy account and want to give my shop some hearts, I would really appreciate it!
  • I’m 12 days into Shift Shop, a brand new Beachbody program and I’m LOVING IT! It’s so hard, especially since I’m doing the nutrition too, but I feel sooooo much better than I have in ages.
  • Sometime today the Wet N Wild Midnight Mermaid collection I bought should be arriving and you guys I am SO excited to try everything! Video coming very very soon.

Jeffrey Campbell Hanger Suede Booties

Purchased with Shopbop credit as part of a collaboration

‘Tis (almost) the season…for booties! When I saw these little babies on Shopbop, I knew I HAD to have them. I have a ton of black booties but I don’t have any lighter ones and I’m kind of obsessed with these, especially with the wood heel. Black jeans, a black top or bodysuit, moto jacket and these booties will probably be my go-to fall look. Is it fall yet?!

ps these booties are on clearance for $38 and they’re Jeffrey Campbells so it’s a great price! Only available in a few sizes – I ordered a half size up and they fit just fine. They *are* final sale though, so keep that in mind! Click here to shop them for yourself!

ColourPop Mini Haul

I placed a ColourPop order the day their concealers launched so, of course, I had to get my order to $35 to get free shipping! I added a few things to my ever-growing ColourPop collection including a few Pressed Shadows, one of their new Pressed Highlighters, a Metallic lippie and (duh) concealer. I haven’t played around with much yet except….the concealer.

You guys. The concealer. This is literally the best concealer I’ve ever used – really creamy but easily blends, it’s not too thick, it doesn’t crease, it’s long lasting and it has amazing coverage. I know it sounds like I’m gushing and honestly…I am. The shade I ordered is pretty close to my skin tone so I’m hoping to get the lightest shade once they’re back in stock to use under my eyes. Oh and did I mention they are SIX DOLLARS?! Seriously, go to their website and sign up for an email notification for when they go back in stock.

Fake Goth Girls Pin

First. Can we talk about this packaging?! I haven’t taken it off the paper backing yet because guyyyyys it’s so cute. Probably gonna keep it because that’s the kind of person I am. If you’re not listening to the Fake Goth Girls podcast, definitely get on it! These ladies are so fun, relatable, and all around great. Then order yourself a pin here asap.

When I was contacted by Baublesaurus to work together, I was elated! These pins are absolutely darling and they have the best quality. Also everything I said about the Fake Goth Girls packaging? Ditto for Baublesaurus! I’m so excited to style these pins, especially as we enter into jacket season.

Lumee case

Purchased with Shopbop credit as part of a collaboration

I’ll admit, the marketing worked on me – I’ve wanted a Lumee case for a while because of Kim Kardashian. So when I saw one on clearance for my phone model, I decided to go ahead and take the plunge!

Is it amazing lighting? No. Is it decent? Yep. I don’t think it’s worth paying full price for (sorry, Kim!) but I think it will be nice to have for occasions where I know I’ll want to snap a few selfies in sub-par lighting. There are still some available for the iPhone 7+ for $27.50 if you’re interested! Click here to shop!

True & Co. Bras

I talked about this on Twitter a bit a while back, but I wanted to go ahead and do a little mini review here as well. Honestly, I might make it into a full post but we’ll see. I HATE bra shopping and I always feel like I am buying the wrong size. Even when I’m fitted in stores, I never know the best style for me or how to fix the fit issues I have.

One lovely day, I saw an ad for True & Co and decided to take their online quiz. It only took a few minutes and they determined the best bras for me based on my fit issues and even recommended sizes (some bras I ordered were outside of my normal size, based on what their site recommended, and they fit perfectlty!) I placed an order for three bras and when they arrived, I went back onto the website and ordered 5 more. I’m serious. I threw all of my old bras out. If you want to try out True & Co, you can use this link to save $15. And yes, you can use the $15 on sale bras…that’s what I did!

That’s it for now, dudes! I’ll have another post for you later this week but honestly…I don’t know what it is yet! What do you want to see next – beauty or fashion? Let me know!

xoxo
