A Fun Gift Idea (A fun way to gift money)

I needed to give a gift and money is sometimes better than a gift card. I wanted to do something fun and creative.

I was in an antique shop a few weeks ago and passed a jar of coins. I thought how strange to put someone's coins for sale. Then I got a little spooked about who did this belong to why is it here. I had to go back and investigate. Well it looks like someone just sells jars of randomness. It had coins, buttons things you might find in a catch all drawer. It was $35 too. Ha ha Wow. With this in the back of my mind I thought I can make a jar of randomness and put money in it!

This is what I did:

I keep jars I don't really know why but an old salsa jar came in handy. I painted the lid with leftover spray paint I had from painting some end tables chrome. I bought marbles and mini dominos from the dollar tree. Then instead of using a bill I got gold dollars from the bank.  I mixed it all together and it looks cool and it has money to find in it.

The Beauty Corner (Birchbox November 2015)

Beauty Protector: My hair doesn't really tangle but I like a spray just to add a touch of moisture and ease when brushing or combing my hair. It is light and smells like warm vanilla.
Beenigma: I was worried about the Bee Venom even though I am not allergic to bees (I have been stung one time!) So I tested it on the inside of my arm first. The next day applied to my face and neck areas and it is a nice light cream.
Oscar de la Renta: Smells beautiful I'm really glad I got a perfume sample
Temple Spa Shower gel: It smells very spicy like something a man would use. It was very pleasant but not my usual choice. I actually like it.
theBalm cosmetics Balm Desert: I love cute packaging. This bronzer has a nice color and it is matte. I sometimes use a big powder brush and put bronzer on my legs in the winter.

What's in my Closet (Inspired by Chanel)

I found this blouse at my favorite consignment shop. My first thought was that it was very Chanel inspired.  I have always admired Coco Chanel. This top was $5 and in perfect never worn condition. The skirt I got a few years ago on an Anthropology sale rack outside of the store for $9. I have developed an eye for spotting a good deal or maybe the ability to walk away from what I see as a bad one.

I used the Bedhead beach waver for my hair. My lip color is Cruella by NARS.

Top: Hearts
Skirt: Anthropology

The Beauty Corner (Birchbox October 2015)

I recently signed back up to receive BirchBox. October was my first box! I love getting a package in the mail, Who doesn't. BirchBox gives me a chance to try costly products that I would otherwise not take a chance on. It is also a treat since most of us don't go out and buy luxury products on a monthly basis. I don't look at the site to see what I will get, I want it to be a surprise. It costs $10.80 a month total.

This is what I got:

The Jane Iredale hand cream is great it smells good

Stila huge extreme lash mascara. Thank God they sent me mascara. It is better than the Ulta mascara and has a thick brush which I like.

Vasanti Cosmetics Brighten Up Ezymatic Face Rejuvenator. Well skincare is my favorite and this scrub was perfection. I love when the scrub is so fine. Good quality.

Bio Republic Pomegranate Crush Illuminating Sheet mask. Again skincare yay! I love these easy to apply face masks, no jars, no mess. Then at the end take off the sheet mask and rub the serum into your skin. It doesn't get better than that. I did see good results and my skin was super hydrated. I left it on for 20 minutes and used the scrub above before.

R+Co Death Valley Dry Shampoo I thought I wouldn't like it. I wash my hair every other day so today was my off day I sprayed and my hair did perk up. This is a perfect example of something I would have never bought but I really love it.

Everything came in this lovely box which is now on my dresser.

What's in my Closet (Plaids and Polka Dots)

I tried a few things on at my favorite consignment shop and nothing really screamed buy me. As I was putting these lovely things back someone else had put back this polka dot top. I grabbed it! This shirt most definitely needed to come home with me. It is sheer and black with polka dots all my favorite things. It has a tie at the neck and the buttons are covered. I decided since the top was black I could wear it with plaid pants in a neutral color. I finished the look with my sparkle tank top and black booties.

What do you think Plaid and Polka dots?

Top: Stop Staring Alicia Estrada
Tank top: mark.
Bracelets: mark.
Earrings: Michaels I had to assemble

I'm sure when I found this shirt my eyes lit up. Paris is on my list of things I want to see. I want to stand in front of the Eiffel tower and enjoy the moment.

Top: Truly U
Skirt: Be Envied
Boots: Faded Glory
Necklace: Paris shop Las Vegas

What's in my Closet (Cool clothes for Fall)

Fall is here and I'm back to blogging once a week. Every Monday you will find a new post to enjoy.

I recently got these super cute Booties and wanted to style around them. I love how comfortable this outfit really is.  This jacket is so cute, I hope to see some cooler weather so I can actually wear it. To get in the Fall spirit I broke out my MAC lashes and my ULTA lip color in Basically Berry. Most of my makeup now is ULTA and I have been really happy with it.

Jacket: Custo Barcelona
Dress: I.N.C. International Concepts
Boots: Faded Glory
Jewelry: mark.
