Walmart Fashion & Home Finds

Hey Guys,

I've found some really awesome things at Walmart lately and wanted to share my favorites with you! I am all about fashion and decor on a budget. I will splurge on things every now and then but for the most part most things that I buy to decorate my house and to wear are very affordable. Below are some recent finds for fall/winter fashion as well as for the home!

My friend Bree (Bree.At.Last) shared these and I thought that they were so cute! I'm obsessed with snakeprint and the price was so affordable. The size zip on the inside step is alot so convenient. After getting them and seeing them in person I was even more impressed. They have memory foam soles and were so comfy!

Hey Guys,
Today I'm going to share my thoughts on some new products that Pixi Beauty sent over to me as part of their PR. For those of you unfamiliar with the brand, Pixi Beauty is a UK based beauty brand. They are an affordable cruelty free brand whose products can be found at Target and other drugstores. Their products include skincare, body care, and makeup. They are most well known for their skincare products such as the infamous Glow Tonic. Their new products consist of 2 new eyeshadow palettes and 2 new face quads. Keep reading to learn about these new products, see swatches, and hear my thoughts on each!

    On to my thoughts:
    These shadows aren't super pigmented at first swipe but more buildable. The shimmers are definitely more pigmented than the mattes and apply best with your finger. I actually used a Pixi Endless Shade Stick on my lids first with both that looks that I created with these Eye Effects palettes. Doing so helps the shimmer look even more pigmented on the lids. I was really happy with the look that I created using this palette. You can check it out on my IG reels HERE and HERE.

    On to my thoughts:
    I thought that this was a great palette for fall! The colors remind me of the changing leaves during this time of year. I love the warm tones and especially liked the green shade which I used to create a look. Again, I used a Pixi Endless Shade Stick as a base to make the green shimmer shade pop more on my lid. You can check that out HERE.

    On to my thoughts:
    I thought this palette was beautiful! The highlight shades are so pretty especially the pink shade that seems to shift in color. I love that these palettes can not only be used on the face but also on the eyes. I have been using both palettes non stop but this one is my favorite of the two.

    Review: New Pixi Beauty Eye Effects Palettes and Nuance Quartettes

    On to my thoughts:
    This palette is also pretty but the dark pink blush isn't my favorite. I prefer more subtle blushes like the second blush in this palette. Both highlighters are so pretty. The lighter highlighter works better for a highlight on me and the more pinkish purple highlighter would be better as a blush topper or eyeshadow.

    Overall, I really like all four palettes. While not every shade in every palette worked for me; there are definitely some gorgeous shades in each palette! However, if I had to pick which palette type that I would recommend more I would say the Nuance Quartettes. They are more versatile considering that you can use them on your face and your eyes. My favorite of the bunch is definitely Honey Nectar.

    Favorite Neutral Lip Products

    Hey Guys,

    I've been trying to mix things up and share different content besides reviews and unboxings. Today I am going to share my all time favorite neutral lip products! If you have been following me for a while now you know that 90% of the time I am wearing nude/neutral shades on my lips. I think reds are beautiful but they are very high maintenance. I wear those a few times a year but other than that I don't get very colorful with my lips. I have never been a fan of bright shades like hot pinks or fuchsias. Neutral/nude shades are just so easy to wear and great for everyday. I have an insane amount of lipstick so narrowing it down was pretty hard. Keep reading to find out my favorites!

    Hey Guys,
    Today I'm going to share my thoughts on my Ipsy Glam Bag Plus for September! For those of you unfamiliar with Ipsy Glam Bag, it is a monthly beauty subscription box. You receive 5 deluxe/sample sized products each month. The subscription is $12.00 a month and usually has a theme. They also offer an upgraded box every month called Ipsy Glam Bag Plus. This box is $25.00 a month and includes 5 FULL SIZED products. They recently added new features to Glam Bag Plus. You are now able to choose 3 of the products in your box and Ipsy chooses 2 for you. Ipsy's picks are based of your beauty quiz/product reviews. They also offer another box called Ipsy Glam Bag Ultimate. This box is $50.00 a month and includes 8 FULL SIZED products and 4 deluxe/sample sized products. I am currently only subscribed to Ipsy Glam Bag Plus. All three subscriptions come with a themed makeup bag each month (different sizes per subscription type). For Glam Bag Plus, you now get your products in a drawstring bag which is also themed. For Glam Bag you are able to pick two items in your bag. With Glam Bag Ultimate you are able to pick one. You are also able to skip a month whenever you feel like it which is a huge bonus offering. I was so impressed with my Glam Bag Plus last month. Keep reading to see what I got in my bag this month!

    Review: Girlfriend Box
    Hey Guys,

    Today I wanted to share a newer jewelry focused gifting subscription with you! Girlfriend Box was created by Arianny Celeste who is a model and UFC ring girl. She originally created Girlfriend Box with men in mind helping them to gift their girlfriends/wives what they REALLY want...JEWELRY! This subscription allows you to pre-schedule 5 Girlfriend Boxes throughout the year for all the special holidays (Birthdays, Valentine's Day, Anniversaries, Christmas, etc). You choose the number of pieces of jewelry (1 or 2), style of jewelry to be sent (classic, romantic, or edgy), pick the dates, and schedule them. The boxes will ship out a week or so before the scheduled date.

    This is a really great idea for guys that have a hard time trying to figure out what to get their girlfriends or try to wing things last minute. It works out for everyone in the end. Gifting made simple for him and a beautiful gift for her! This subscription is also a great gift idea for your best friend, mom, sister or any other special someone in your life that loves jewelry. If you aren't looking to sign up for the 5 box subscription, you can also schedule it monthly, or just one time. If you love switching up your jewelry like me, you can also gift this to yourself each month!

    Below are some pieces that I chose from the subscription to show you the kind of jewelry that is featured.Review: Girlfriend Box

    Each jewelry piece comes in a duster bag to protect and store your jewelry. Some jewelry also comes packaged in little boxes.

    Review: FabFitFun Fall Box 2020
    Hey Guys,
    Today I'm going to share my Fall FabFitFun Box! For those of you unfamiliar with FabFitFun it is a quarterly subscription that you get every season. The box is filled with beauty, fashion, home, and lifestyle items and the fun part is you are able to pick some of the items! There are a few items that are featured items picked from the FabFitFun team. Seasonal members (who are subscribed quarterly) are able to pick 3 of the items in your box. You usually have 2-5 choices to pick from. If you are a select member (those who subscribe for the year in advance) you are able to pick 5 of the items in your box. You also have the option to add on additional products. I really like the variety that this subscription box offers. I am a yearly subscriber so I get to pick 5 items in my box which I love. Keep reading to see what I got!
