Winter Causebox Unboxing

Winter Causebox Unboxing

First impressions, Product reviews, Seasonal, Style, Style hauls, Videos, Winter
Back in December, I received my winter 2018 Causebox right before I was set to leave town for the holidays. I was sick, but I decided to film something anyway and give myself a little editing work to do on my trip. As you can probably guess by today's date, I didn't edit on my trip. But I did get to come back to some hilarious DayQuil-induced footage. And an appearance from my pup Maya! https://youtu.be/u8WaAXMCSe0 Now that I've had these items for a while, I thought I'd give a little update for you here. The Poncho I said in the video that I likely wouldn't wear the poncho outside because "I'm scared," but it's really cute! It's not super practical as it's so open, but it's cute layered over…

Fall Causebox Unboxing

As soon as I filmed and edited my Causebox in my Ads Made Me Buy It video, my fall Causebox arrived!  Let's take a look at what's inside. https://youtu.be/hwUsCZUHM78 So far, I've been consistently impressed by the value and variety in these boxes. I've never been interested in subscription boxes, but this one provides useful items that give back.  I know I keep saying this in my videos, too, but the items in these boxes are so nice that any items you don't want would make a great gift for someone else. Everything is full size and good quality. I'm already looking forward to my winter box. If you want to see it, comment below or like the video to let me know!

I haven't posted a video in a while, so here's two! I ordered a few fall items from ASOS, and made two orders during the two 20% off sales at Sephora for VIB Rouge members. I hope you enjoy watching these, and Happy Thanksgiving to my fellow American readers!

OOTD: Levi’s Wedgie Fit Jeans

OOTD: Levi’s Wedgie Fit Jeans

OOTD, Style
I'm so excited to have published the Levi's haul video, because now I can show off those Wedgie fit jeans! I was most excited for these out of my entire haul. Between the high waist, slightly cuffed legs, and advertised "booty-enhancing" effects, I had high expectations. You can get a better look at the fit in my haul video. As for the outfit in question, I have to be honest, this OOTD isn't from today. It's actually from a few weeks ago when I first got the jeans. I wanted to wait on this post until I'd posted my haul, but some of my footage was blurry the first time around, plus I got wrapped up in family events and ended up delaying my reshoot and editing for much too…

Levi’s Haul Try-On and Review

Levi’s Haul Try-On and Review

Style, Style hauls
I was in serious need of some new jeans recently, so I bought a few pairs from Levi's when they were running a 30% off promotion. That definitely makes these fairly expensive jeans more reasonable! I wanted to check out the Wedgie fit, which has blown up online over the past couple months. I also wanted to grab a few high-waisted pairs because I had one pair I was wearing to death. I ended up getting a few styles: the Wedgie Fit, 721 High Rise Skinny, Mile High Skinny, and 311 Shaping Skinny. Before I review the fit of each pair, take a look at the (super short) try-on video I made. https://youtu.be/YJorjE1rLOk Overall, these fit pretty nicely! Wedgie Fit in Desert Delta Inspired by vintage Levi’s jeans, hugs your…

Girlfriend Collective Leggings

Girlfriend Collective Leggings

Style, Style reviews
You probably saw the storm of posts from your friends on Facebook -- the up-and-coming company Girlfriend Collective ran a promotion to give away their leggings for free (although you pay the $20 shipping from the factory in Vietnam). I decided to go for it because I love leggings, and it's nice to try a new brand without spending the $50+ good-quality leggings cost nowadays. I knew that even if I didn't wear them much, $20 is not a huge loss. As I read about the company, the more I was sold. The company is fair-trade and uses recycled materials (they fully explain all of this on their website). In fact, the leggings are made from recycled water bottles, yet the company claims that they're extremely soft. They also claim that these leggings keep…

OOTD: Strappy Top and Cuffed Jeans

OOTD: Strappy Top and Cuffed Jeans

OOTD, Style
What goes great with a FOTD? An OOTD! Yesterday, my boyfriend and I went to see a Beauty and the Beast. It was beautiful out, but I knew I'd probably need a sweater in the movie theater. So I threw a chunky cardigan over a strappy top instead of a jacket. The face of someone whose photo keeps getting interrupted by passersby... I love the look of these jeans rolled up with these black booties. I think my booties with a higher heel would have been cuter, but we walked a half mile to the theater (and back), and I didn't want to strain my ankles! I went very light on makeup -- just some winged eyeliner and a brow pencil. Enough to feel human without the effort. What I'm…

SheIn Haul: Is it a SCAM??

SheIn Haul: Is it a SCAM??

Style, Style hauls, Videos
I should disclose that I purchased these items a couple months ago, filmed the footage, and only now got the motivation to edit this video. Text galore! I've heard a lot about online retailers (usually in China) that offer crazy cheap prices but use fake photos to sell products, don't send finished garments, and offer sizes that are more suited to a pre-teen than an adult. Now, I'm petite (about 5'3"), so I figured I might have a chance of fitting into something. I did a little searching and discovered SheIn. All these sites basically offer the same clothes and accessories, but SheIn has a nice website, lots of legitimate reviews and customer photos, and not too much broken English. It seemed like the safest way to test out one of…

Video Update: Maybelline Better Skin Challenge + All About My Tieks!

Face, Product reviews, Style
Hi all, I put a few videos up recently and thought I'd put them up here in case you're not subscribed to my channel. First, I made a quick update to talk about my new job, video ideas, hate comments. Surprise guest = the snacks I eat in bed. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bS5-nrDi8MQ Next, I took the three-week #betterskinchallenge with the Maybelline Better Skin Foundation, which I received from Influenster. Check out my journey and review: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3iu8A_IasV0 And by popular request, I talked all about my Tieks. I've been posting about these shoes since I got my first pair two years ago, and now that I've decided to add another pair to the family, it seemed about time to talk about why I'm crazy enough to spend so much on flats. You can also get…

Haul: Sephora, Hautelook, Forever 21

Beauty hauls, Style, Style hauls, Videos
Hey guys! Life's been crazy lately as I get ready to move next week. YEEE! Anyway, I finally got my haul footage together for you. The Sephora items are from the 15% off VIB sale... ages ago. My bad. The Hautelook items are also makeup related because I needed some new bags/organizers for traveling, and Trina Turk happened to have a flash sale going on! Then, I revamped my jewelry collection with Forever 21. I'm slowly starting to realize that I'm getting to be too old for most of those stores as my main shopping spots, but jewelry is OK, right?? Anyway, I hope you enjoy the video. :) http://youtu.be/7yo6WEFg1rI Here's a list of everything I got Sephora - Point perks: Living Proof texture spray, 500-point makeup bag with samples…
