Fashionistas, you are going to LOVE this new service! I just signed up for Birchbox, a monthly deluxe beauty service. I was tipped off about Birchbox by a fabulous friend, and had to look into it more!
Every month Birchbox members will receive a beautiful box of deluxe beauty samples. Some of the common brands included are Benefit, Bare Escentuals, NARS, Laura Mercier, Stila, Too Faced, and lots more. Each box will span beauty categories and deliver amazing products that fit into your day-to-day routine as well as some new and exciting products that turn up the drama in your makeup regime.With your Birchbox subscription, you will receive a selection of 4-5 deluxe samples every month. These samples will include anything from makeup, to skincare, to new beauty tools. And get this fashionistas, membership is only $10 per month (shipping included)! 
If you love the samples you have tried, which you most likely will, Birchbox offers a shop where you can purchase the products full-size. For every product you purchase in their store, and for every time you are charged the $10 to get your monthly Birchbox, you will get points added to your account, which can add up and go towards more fantastic products. Referring friends and filling out quick product feedback surveys gets you points too!

Some FAQ's:
Every month, you’ll receive a box filled with four to five samples from luxury brands. Each month will be a different mix of beauty product types, including makeup, skincare, fragrance, body, and hair products. All samples are generously sized, with enough product to allow you to figure out if they’re right for you. You’ll also want to take advantage of, which is packed with all the beauty information and tips you need, including expert interviews, helpful tutorials, and fun videos.

Nope – all you pay is your subscription. There are no shipping or handling fees for the monthly Birchbox. Lucky you!

Birchboxes are like magazines — they arrive every month! Your first Birchbox will ship during the first week of the month after you sign up, and every month thereafter as long as your membership is active.

The surprise is all part of the fun! That’s why we keep the products secret until you receive them. Still curious? Check out the list of our brand partners and product in our shop to get a sense for what we have sent in the past.

Yes we do customize the boxes – that’s why filling out your Beauty Profile is so important! Some samples are sent to everyone – these products are chosen carefully to ensure that they’ll work for a wide range of styles, skin types, and colorings. Other samples are chosen specifically for your skin and beauty needs and style.
I just signed up for this service, so when my first Birchbox arrives (which should be around March 10th) I will review everything in it and let you all know how it is!

Manly Monday!

HAPPY MANLY MONDAY! I am so happy to bring back a fabulous Manly Monday post by one of my fav manly bloggers, Aaron Hartman! So without any further adieu, here is Aaron :

With Valentines day come and past I’ve heard a lot of the same things from girlfriends with significant others of the male variety. “Guys are so hard to buy for.” And compared to girls, of whom, many are happy with the old standards like flowers and jewelry, guys can be difficult to make a gift purchase for. And unless your man is fond of prepackaged meat and non-perishable cheeses, a gift basket delivered to his office are out of the question.

So what is a girl to do. Take advice from your friendly neighborhood Manly Monday writer of course! What I propose to you fashonistas is the Manly Monday Morning Gift Basket, everything your man could need to get ready for the day packed up for him in a nice neat basket. While every man’s basket should be tailored accordingly to their taste I propose you this blueprint...

1) A nice button down and tie combo:
Try to find a color or pattern that your man doesn’t have (just be sure not to stretch him to far out of his comfort zone, not everyone is ready for a pink paisley button down). Choose a color to make his eyes pop. More important than anything though is buy a shirt that fits him correctly. There’s an epidemic out their of baggy billowing button downs, lets put an end to it. John Varvatos has some great patterns, and all of his shirts fit amazingly. As for tie, introduce a knitted one to his rotation, check out Valentine for some great options.

2) An accessory
You can look back at my Accessory Boot Camp post for ideas but I might also suggest getting your man a nice pair of cuff-links. It’s a small detail on a man’s outfit that adds a real nice touch (shop for them at Tiffany’s and have some fun checking out everything else there). Another option is the suspender. I myself am on a personal mission to bring this look back into the mainstream and let me tell you I’ve been getting a lot of support and encouragement. Ben Sherman has some fun suspenders that don’t make you think “is this guy a middle school math teacher?”

3) The undergarments
While a nice new pair of underwear is always appreciated, think lower, all the way down to his feet. There’s nothing like putting on a fresh pair of dress socks. Another great chance to add some color to his wardrobe that he might not add himself. There are also some great undershirts out there made of some truly soft fabrics. Check out Calvin Klein's undershirts and tanks for some quality fabrics.

4) The Travel Item
If your man spends a good part of his morning commuting find something to add a little more style to his subway ride. Perhaps a nice leather travel case for his kindle or iPad? If you have a coffee drinker why not go eco-friendly and get him a nice ceramic travel mug, Crate and Barrel has some classy, clean cut ones to add to the gift basket. 

Well there you have it ladies, a great gift idea for the next time your man deserves something special. Get them all to make one great gift or spread the love out and give your beau a little something nice to brighten up his day. And never forget that a home cooked meal is something that never goes out of style. 

Thanks for the great post, Aaron- Happy Manly Monday, Fashionistas!

Stay Fabulous xoxo

The Perfect Liquid Liner

Applying liquid liner is a feat for even the most experienced beauty-saavy fashionista. The best trick to applying a liquid liner is to get the right liquid liner... Now some beauty experts may disagree, but I really do think that the only way to correctly and easily apply a liquid liner is to get it in a "pen" form. This is where the amazing Smashbox Limitless Liquid Liner Pen comes into play. 
I love this liner for so many reasons- it stays on for a long time, is waterproof, has a nice and even consistency and formula, and best of all it is SUPER easy to apply! This pen makes it so easy to create looks that range from softly delicate to gorgeously glamorous and dramatic. 
Unlike a traditional liquid liner, Smashbox's precision tip pen allows any fashionista to smoothly apply liquid liner with a controlled application every time, while also providing consistent color dispersion.
I LOVE this liquid liner- finally liquid liner doesn't have to be scary and crazy messy!

You can purchase the Smashbox Limitless Liquid Liner Pen at Sephora or Smashbox stores
Retail Price: $22

Stay Fabulous xoxo

Want it Wednesday!

The second I saw these heels for the first time, I was in heaven. The Sam Edelman "Lorissa" Pump is one of the fiercest shoes I have ever seen! How could you not be obsessed with these show-stoppers?! These heels are my "Want It" item of the week.
These gorgeous shoes feature a 4.5" heel and open toe design. These heels are available in either black leather or nude leather, both absolutely beautiful and fierce in their own way. Dripping in sparkly studded stones, these edgy peep-toe pumps will make any glamour girl the star of the show!
As far as styling this shoe, personally I would wear these Sam Edelman heels with the outfit that can be seen below. Definitely, your dress should be on the plain side and you can accessorize with funky earrings and add a pop of color with your purse. This is my dream outfit- I am so in love with these shoes!
