What you need for a perfect Memorial Day Weekend Getaway with IT Cosmetics!

Essentials for Memorial DayMemorial Day weekend is wonderful for many reasons – we have that extra day to remember our loved ones who aren’t physically with us anymore. We have a little more time to spend with the people we love who are still here, and we have some precious time to relax and rest. If you are lucky, you get to spend that time at the pool or the beach.

Aaahhhh....rest and relaxation!!

Aaahhhh….rest and relaxation!!

I’m heading to the pool! I have a few must-have’s that are absolutely essential for my Memorial Day pool getaway…I wonder how they compare to your list?IT Cosmetics Beach BagIT Cosmetics

First, a great beach bag is essential. I was sent the ultimate beach bag from IT Cosmetics – it’s big, it has a waterproof and sand-proof bottom, and it has a zippered top.  It really is perfection.  They also sent a wonderful round towel.  Love it!!

J Crew Panama Hat

J Crew Panama Hat

Hopefully the sun is out, which means sun protection is in order. I always wear a hat, and I love my J Crew Panama Hat. I also always wear sunglasses, and the coolest sunglasses in existence are the Garrett Leight Wilson Sunglasses that I bought from Shopbop.

Garrett Leight Wilson Sunglasses and Samsung Galaxy

Garrett Leight Wilson Sunglasses and Samsung Galaxy

For real – they are the COOLEST. No exaggeration. I also always have my phone with me. I love my Samsung Galaxy, although I have the S6 and I think it’s time for an upgrade, don’t you? Come on, enable me!!

Shoshanna Bikini

Shoshanna Bikini

It can’t be called a pool party without the perfect bikini. I favor Shoshanna bikinis.  They are bra sized and I always love the sweet, feminine prints. You can find her swimwear at Shopbop at incredible prices.

Eliza Flat Halogen Sandals

Eliza Flat Halogen Sandals

Of course, the perfect sandals are necessary. I got these Eliza Flat Halogen Sandals through Trunk Club. Have you heard of Trunk Club yet??  It’s a personal shopping service that is run through Nordstrom. You get a personal shopper who works with you. He or she picks out TEN pieces that you actually get to preview and approve online before they are sent to you in a big old trunk. Then you get five days to try on everything and decide if you want to keep anything. My personal shopper is incredible. Her name is Paulina and I swear, she is psychic. She knows what I want even when I have no idea. The only drawback is I have spent so much money that if my hubby knew he would probably leave me. But my wardrobe is rocking. If you try this service, go with Paulina – use this link and it will give me a credit, for which I will be forever thankful!

BKR Glass and Silicone Water Bottle

BKR Glass and Silicone Water Bottle

Another Memorial Day pool party essential is a water bottle. I am still raving about my BKR Glass and Silicone Water Bottle that came with my Zoe Report Box of Style Spring 2017. The newest Box of Style is out now…I am hoping it arrives soon.

IT Cosmetics recently sent me some fantastic travel size products that are really terrific for taking to the pool and the beach. Pop these into your beach bag along with a little travel mirror and you will have everything you need for looking great and feeling wonderful.

IT Cosmetics...travel sized and beach party ready!

IT Cosmetics…travel sized and beach party ready!

Confidence in a Cream Travel Size ($16)  Skin gets dry thanks to sun, wind, and chlorine, so a little bit of moisture every so often is the perfect answer. I adore IT Confidence in a Cream because it moisturizes thirsty skin, giving it a nice glow; it tackles skin texture and leaves it feeling smooth; it evens out skin tone; and it reduces the look of pores. Plus the travel size jar is perfect for a beach bag or a purse.

CC+ Cream with SPF 50+ Travel Size ($15)  Spending the day outside, a full coverage foundation doesn’t sound right…but neither does going bare-faced. I love the travel size version of IT Cosmetics CC+ Cream with SPF 50+ which has more coverage than a BB cream, but is still lighter than a foundation. It doesn’t get any better than this anti-aging serum and broad-spectrum UVA/UVB SPF 50+ protection all in one fabulous package.

CC+ Cream with SPF 50+ Travel Size

Bye Bye Under Eye Full-Coverage Waterproof Concealer Travel Size ($10) Ok, somehow my computer ate my photo of Bye Bye Under Eye Full-Coverage Concealer…but your skin won’t do the same, because this concealer lasts and lasts, even if you are swimming in a chlorine-filled pool. For those of you with decent skin, you probably just need a few little dots blended in under your eyes and maybe under your nose for fabulous coverage that looks natural and stays all day. This is my go-to concealer and has been for years and years.

IT Cosmetics travel size Bye Bye Undereye

Brow Power Universal Brow Pencil Mini ($12)  When my secretary when to Mexico for vacation, she asked me which brow pencil to get so she could comfortably lay by the pool knowing she had eyebrows safely in place. Without hesitation I recommended the Brow Power Universal Brow Pencil Mini, which I knew would work for her – and she is a strawberry redhead. It works for pretty much everyone and the spoolie and formula makes sure those brows are well-groomed and stay in place!

IT’s Your Brush Love Mini ($12)  The perfect mini-solution for quick cleaning lip brushes, eyeshadow brushes, powder brushes…I even use it to touch up overzealous lipstick or eyeliner application. It works like a dream and the size is truly perfect.

IT's Your Brush Love Mini

With the perfect towel, bikini, sunglasses, hat, sandals, and cosmetics tucked into a fabulous beach bag I am totally ready for my pool party this weekend. Oh wait, I forgot my phone…that’s ok, I need to upgrade anyway!!!  Come on ladies, tell me…what did I leave off my list that YOU consider to be an essential for a perfect day at the pool or beach?  – Lisa

Your Bijoux Box May 2017 review! #YourBijouxBoxStyle

May 2017 Your Bijoux Box

April showers brought May flowers….and May brought a beautiful box from Your Bijoux Box!  This month’s sweet selection includes a statement necklace, a long necklace, stunning earrings, and a sassy retro wallet.  It’s well worth the $36 and certainly was a lovely spring surprise to find on my porch!     sample, affiliate links
May 2017 Your Bijoux BoxThe May Collection from Your Bijoux Box is a coordinated set of three jewelry pieces that complement almost any outfit, dressed up or dressed down. Each monthly box has three items for women (this month there were three jewelry items plus one extra item). The boxes are curated by stylists so although these are customized, everyone gets the same jewelry each month, although May was a little different – there were two styles of necklaces available and two styles of earrings, so each box was a little different. A monthly subscription is $36 and there are options for a three-month ($103) or six month ($206) subscription. They ship to the US and Canada.

Your Bijoux Box May 2017My box arrived pretty early in May, before Mother’s Day, so the pretty card inside was wonderful.  Actually, this would have made a great gift for my mom (although I was a selfish daughter and kept for myself…hopefully I’m not going to burn in hell for it.)

Anne Taintor Wallet

In honor of Mother’s Day, Your Bijoux Box included this awesome extra – the super sassy and fabulously retro Anne Taintor Wallet.  Love the pink, love the wrap around zipper, and seriously – stop me before I volunteer again, would you??

Peony Necklace

Speaking of retro, the Peony Necklace is a statement piece with a retro vibe all its own.  The opalescent petals with golden stones are feminine and unique, and it’s something that you can wear with a strappy sundress or with a white t-shirt, capris, and wedges for lunch with the girlfriends.

House of Harlow Tessellation Earrings

There are two possibilities for earrings, both from House of Harlow:  either the blue and green pyramid stud Meatora Earrings, or the Tessellation Earrings.  Lucky me, I got the Tessellation Earrings, which perfectly match my Tessellation Cuff from a previous box!!Your Bijoux Box Tessellation Cuff

I love the gorgeous geometric design, and my House of Harlow collection is growing.  All the pieces are so complimentary to one another – I’m quite impressed.  The Tessellation Earrings are gold with silvery crystals, so they are very versatile.

The final item is the House of Harlow Chain.  Your box will either have the Frequency Necklace in gold or the Torre Pyramids Necklace in either silver or gold.  My box had the Frequency Necklace, which is a great match with the Tessellation Earrings.  It’s an odd necklace, though – I find the length challenging for me.  It will work great on those with a longer – or shorter – torso.  For me, it seems to hit at just the wrong spot, and all the little triangle pyramids keep flipping over.  I actually sort of hiked the necklace up a bit to try to get a good photo of it on.  I think I probably would have liked the Torre Pyramids Necklace better, but that’s part of the beauty of subscription boxes…you just never know what you are going to get, and anything I don’t like someone else LOVES so it makes for an awesome gift.

The May 2017 Your Bijoux Box  is a great assortment of cool and sassy pieces.  If you haven’t signed up for Your Bijoux Box yet, why not do it now?  Click HERE for 50% off your first box on 3, 6, and 12 month subscriptions!!  – Lisa

April 2017 Your Bijoux Box #YourBijouxBoxStyle

We are already more than halfway through April – time is flying – and the best part about it are the subscription boxes that I find on my porch each month!! April has already been excellent thanks to the latest Your Bijoux Box.  It truly is an outstanding collection this month.        sample, affiliate links

Your Bijoux Box April 2017

Your Bijoux Box April 2017

The April Collection from Your Bijoux Box is a coordinated set of three pieces that complement almost any outfit, dressed up or dressed down. Each monthly box has three jewelry items for women (this month there were three jewelry items plus two extra items). The boxes are curated by stylists so although these are customized, everyone gets the same jewelry each month, although April was special – there were multiple styles of necklaces available, so each box had a real surprise. It’s been really cool to check out which style of necklace everyone else got, although I am totally happy with the necklace I received.  A monthly subscription is $36 and there are options for a three-month ($103) or six month ($206) subscription. They ship to the US and Canada.

Your Bijoux Box April 2017

The April Collection featured Karen Kane pieces which made me dance a happy spring dance since I adore this line. All the pieces coordinate so well I found myself wearing every single piece on the same day…I think that’s the first time that’s happened for me with a subscription box collection.

  1.  Karen Kane Gold Hoops ($31):  apparently the styles vary a bit on these earrings, with some styles thicker and a bit smaller. I couldn’t be happier with the ones I got. The shape is interesting – just a bit oblong, and even though they aren’t a closed hoop I had no problem with my hair getting caught in them. I have nothing like these classically beautiful gold hoops so they were the beginning of my major happy dance.

2. Goldenrod Statement Bracelet: this pretty chunky bracelet features greenish/gold crystals and an adjustable size. I love the toggle and hoop closure which is so much easier to navigate than a clasp. Sometimes I wear it loose, sometimes I go for the snug fit, but however I wear it I know it looks stunning. This is a great bracelet.

3.  Karen Kane Pink Reversible Pendant Necklace (up to $120):  I’ve seen lots of gorgeous versions on other blogs who review Your Bijoux Box, but I think I like my style of necklace best!!  My Karen Kane Necklace is a multi-tasker, with one side a rectangle of tiny crystals that are incredibly brilliant, and the other side a soft and feminine peachy peach rimmed with gold. Take a look at some of the other blogs and their reviews, like My Subscription Addiction, Subscription Box Ramblings, and Hello Subscription so you can see a few other necklace styles.  (I definitely got the best one, although they are all super pretty!!).

I am loving hair jewelry for spring and I actually think these two little surprises just might be my favorite items in the April Your Bijoux Box. They are so cute together on one side, but sometimes I use one for each side to mix it up a little.

Unboxing The Zoe Report Box of Style

The Zoe Report Box of StyleWho doesn’t want a stylist? I know when something looks great but I’m not always the best at actually finding the items and picking them out. Probably the most famous stylist with a terrific eye for the latest and greatest is Rachel Zoe. Since it’s not likely that I will ever actually be styled by Rachel, The Zoe Report Box of Style is a fabulous alternative.                                                                        sample

Rachel Zoe

Rachel Zoe

Here’s how you know this box of fashion and beauty is incredible – every single box has sold out since Box of Style launched in March 2015. The Zoe Report Editor-in-Chief, Rachel Zoe, and her team of editors curate 5 full-sized products that are worth over $400. I am not kidding, this box is one ‘ooh’ and ‘aah’ after another. Here’s the general info first, then I’ll give you the scoop on the current box.

You can get each individual box for $100, or subscribe for the year for $350.  The yearly price is worth the investment because you are guaranteed the box, and the spring box alone has over $400 worth of product in it. Each box has a ‘hero’ piece that is worth over $100. Women who will love this box are those who love fashion and style but just don’t have time to shop for the latest items. If you are into upscale style at a great price, or if you want to venture outside your typical comfort zone but don’t want to invest in a personal stylist, this is the perfect way to meet all those wants and spoil yourself without breaking the bank.

Also, get $10 off with the code  INFOSP10 !!

The Zoe Report Box of Style Spring 2017

The Zoe Report Box of Style Spring 2017

What is special about the Spring 2017 Edition?  Every single brand was founded by a woman! Total girl power. The products are valued at over $400 and they are absolutely obsession grade. There are two exclusive collaborations that you can only find in Box of Style, collaborations that have given jobs and skills to hundreds of women in India. The box is all about EMPOWERMENT – everything is made by women to empower other women to live a life of style! I love that this collection has everything needed to take you from work to the weekend. It’s a fantastic collection and I am just beyond thrilled with it. Ok, so now let’s get into the gorgeous details, shall we??

There are three fashion items – the Tribe Alive Custom Carryall ($238), the Adornemonde Iva Earrings ($62), and the Symbology Scarf ($50).

The Tribe Alive Custom Carryall is the ‘hero’ piece, a chic purse that is the perfect size – not so large that it overwhelms a small frame, but big enough for a last-minute shopping trip to Whole Foods. It’s super versatile too. I find that it is dressy enough for work, yet it also works as my bag for my yoga essentials. I love the juxtaposition of the colorful print with the tan strap and handles. This bag was made by women in India who could have otherwise ended up in the sex trade. Instead, the women are given skills and safe employment by Tribe Alive founder Carly Burson.

A great compliment to the Tribe Alive Custom Carryall is the Symbology Scarf. This is a gorgeous peacock-inspired print in gold and berry that can be worn around the neck, wrist, or tied to the strap of your purse. I love it paired with the Tribe Alive Custom Carryall.  The Symbology company was founded by Marissa Heyl after an inspirational trip to India.

The third fashion item is the adorable multi-tasking Adornmonde Ivo Convertible Earrings. Some boxes have the gold version, some have the silver version. Happily, mine had silver which is my preference. These earrings are a great twist on the classic hoop. You can also wear just the bar for a completely different look. Rachel suggests getting edgy and wearing the bar on one ear and the hoop on the other. Adornmonde is a chic jewelry line with LE pieces owned by Niki Allworth.

There are two beauty items in the Spring 2017 Box of Style:  Tatcha Polished Gentle Rice Enzyme Powder ($65) and Butter London Piece of Cake Nail Polish ($18).

Tatcha Polished Gentle Rice Enzyme Powder

Tatcha Polished Gentle Rice Enzyme Powder

Tatcha Polished Gentle Rice Enzyme Powder

Tatcha Polished Gentle Rice Enzyme Powder

I’m a big fan of the Tatcha Polished Gentle Rice Enzyme Powder.  Mixed with warm water or your cleanser, this is a wonderful exfoliant that removes dead skin and unclogs pores. It leaves skin soft and glowing. Since it’s a powder, you never have to worry about it expiring either. Victoria Tsai created this line which is inspired by the beauty rituals of Geisha’s.

Butter London Piece of Cake Nail Polish

How perfect is the Butter London Piece of Cake Nail Polish? Pretty pink perfect. This is a fantastic soft, neutral pink that makes for a classy and chic manicure. I could wear this shade every day for a year. I don’t think I ever knew that Butter London was founded by two fierce females, Sasha Muir and Nonie Creme.

An essential for beauty is lots and lots of clean water and The Zoe Report Box of Style has you covered with the last two items:  the BKR Glass and Silicone Water Bottle ($35) and the Stella Artois Chalice ($13).

I love the feminine look of the BKR Glass and Silicone Water Bottle and the silicone outer covering just feels awesome in your hands. The BKR line was created by Tal Winter and Kate Cutler as a response to cheap and definitely not chic plastic water bottles. Hydration is a necessity, so why not do it in style?

The final item, which is actually the ‘bonus’ item in the Spring 2017 Box of Style, is the Stella Artois Chalice. It’s a gorgeous chalice, and every LE chalice that is sold provides an incredible 5 years of clean water for one person in the developing world. Once you pour yourself a drink, be sure to leave your mark at BuyALadyaDrink.com.

I can’t rave enough about The Zoe Report Box of Style. It is a fantastic collection of obsession-worthy items and this collection in particular is amazing because it’s all about girl power.

March 2017 Your Bijoux Box #YourBijouxBoxStyle

Your Bijoux BoxThere are some moments that are just exquisite. The feeling of brand new socks. That first hot, salty McDonald’s french fry. A perfect place to park suddenly becoming yours. Coming home after a trying day to find a subscription box on your porch. I recently had all four experiences in one day which culminated in finding my March 2017 Your Bijoux Box calmly awaiting outside my door!                  sample, affiliate links

March Collection Your Bijoux BoxThe March Collection from Your Bijoux Box is a coordinated set of three pieces that complement almost any outfit, dressed up or dressed down. Each monthly box has three jewelry items for women (although this month there were three jewelry items plus one extra item). The boxes are curated by stylists so although these are customized everyone gets the same jewelry each month. A monthly subscription is $36 and there are options for a three-month ($103) or six month ($206) subscription. They ship to the US and Canada.

The March Collection was a celebration of St. Patrick’s Day, with an emphasis on spring green good-luck jewelry that makes you feel like a million bucks. This month they had a delay due to some supplier issues, but I really appreciated the communication and continued updates regarding shipping.  I still got my box in time for celebrating the holiday with my beautiful new items!Your Bijoux Box Tessellation CuffYour Bijoux Box Tessellation CuffYour Bijoux Box Tessellation Cuff

1.  Tessellation Cuff ($78) – this is a gorgeous art deco piece from the House of Harlow 1960. It’s a fascinating cuff – I keep looking at it and finding more details. If you have nice arms, this is a great way to draw attention to them. Depending on your arm, you can wear this on the upper arm or at the wrist. It is a bit adjustable. I have really skinny arms so I like this on my upper arm, but my daughter prefers it as a bracelet. It’s gorgeous, and well worth the price of the box alone.Sama Cuff

Some people received the Sama Cuff instead. It looks beautiful, but I think I like the Tessellation Cuff even more.

Your Bijoux Box Emerald Layered NecklaceYour Bijoux Box Emerald Layered NecklaceYour Bijoux Box Emerald Layered Necklace2.  Emerald Layered Necklace:  Continuing the art deco and green theme, this beautiful layered necklace is a great addition to my necklace collection. It lays nicely and doesn’t tangle up. I love pairing this with a plain white t-shirt and skinny jeans.  Your Bijoux Box Emerald EarringsYour Bijoux Box Emerald Earrings

3.  Emerald Earrings:  These match the Emerald Layered Necklace. They are surprisingly light and don’t pull on the earlobes. I am a huge art deco fan so this month’s collection of jewelry is just perfect. I love the vintage glamour.

Your Bijoux Box Life of Fashion Scarf

4.  Life of Fashion Scarf:  My daughter Marina is modeling the fashion items for this month. The Life of Fashion Scarf is an infinity scarf with a graduated cream and green print. I don’t have a lot of green in my wardrobe so this is definitely a welcome addition. The scarf is soft and so pretty…and it was perfect for St. Patrick’s Day. I wasn’t pinched once because I had my green!

The March Collection Your Bijoux Box was a fabulous celebration of spring and St. Patrick’s Day with pieces I can wear all year long. Have you signed up for Your Bijoux Box yet? It’s a great time to do it…just think of that exquisite moment when you find the box of sparkly surprises on your porch!  – Lisa

Ringing in the new year with my January 2017 Your Bijoux Box #YourBijouxBoxStyle

Your Bijoux Box January 2017I like surprises. Well, not HUGE surprises…like when the doctor told me I was having a girl but he turned to be a boy. That’s a bit much in the surprise category. But I love knowing that a box of baubles, Your Bijoux Box, is on the way to me every month and I love the surprise that comes with it…I never know what is going to be inside but I always know it’s going to be pretty and fun!                                                                         sample, affiliate links

  2. Petra Pearl Collar:  This is an elegant collar necklace with faux pearls. It looks grown up but it’s very fun to match with dressed down clothes like a white t-shirt and a black moto jacket.House of Harlow BraceletHouse of Harlow BraceletHouse of Harlow BraceletHouse of Harlow Bracelet
  3. House of Harlow Bracelet:  This beauty retails for $58. I am head over heels for this Nicole Richie art deco bracelet with a boho vibe. It goes with everything and gets a lot of attention, even though it isn’t an ‘in your face’ piece. It’s lovely.

There are two cute extras in this month’s box – an Anne Taintor Lip Balm and Purse Sized Emory Boards. Anne Taintor is an artist and she is known for pairing mid-century imagery with modern slogans. Both of these immediately went into my purse and have already saved me from a few lip and nail emergencies.

I seem to love every month of Your Bijoux Box more and more! I highly recommend this wonderful monthly surprise of sparkle.   – Lisa

Glimmering baubles in Your Bijoux Box December Collection!


Your Bijoux Box The December CollectionSometimes everything just works out. A week ago, I found out at the very last moment that my husband and I were invited to a black tie affair. I rarely go to anything black tie, but I had a dress ready thanks to a recent Stitch Fix order – this Maggy Sophia White Floral London Fit and Flare Dress:maggie-london-sophia-white-floral-fit-and-flare-dress
I winterized it with a darling Alice Blue black jacket, also from StitchFix. I just needed the right jewelry.  Lo and behold, my December Collection of the Your Bijoux Box arrived!! Everything inside was exactly what I needed to perfectly accessorize my party dress.                          sample, affiliate links

Juliette Collar ($38) – My exact words when I pulled this shimmering beauty out of the box: shut the front door!! Freaking fabulous. It was just perfect for my black tie event, but it also looks incredible with a simple white t-shirt (like the Citizens of Humanity Premium Vintage Esmay T-Shirt), skinny jeans (like the Rag + Bone Frayed Skinny Jeans), and black Acne Studio Pistol booties. citizens-of-humanity-vintage-esmay-t-shirtrag-and-bone-frayed-skinny-jeans

Quite honestly, I would have been thrilled if Juliette Collar had been the only piece in the box!

Your Bijoux Box The December CollectionAdd it all up – these four beautiful pieces are worth $154, a fantastic value for a $36 box. You can buy each item separately at Your Bijoux Box if you want…or you can get a single box without the automatically renewing feature. I am loving Your Bijoux Box more and more every month and I hope you decide to get your sparkle delivered too!!  – Lisa
