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!

    Here are swatches of this palette:
    Review: New Pixi Beauty Eye Effects Palettes and Nuance Quartettes

    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.

    Here are swatches of this palette:
    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!

    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.

    Favorite ColourPop Super Shock Shadows

     *This post contains affiliate links. That means if you click on my link and buy something, I will earn a small commission from the advertiser at no additional cost to you. Thank you for supporting Leopard Lace and Cheesecake!

    Hey Guys,

    Today I'm going to share my favorite ColourPop Super Shock Shadows. For those of you unfamiliar with ColourPop, they are a USA based affordable and cruelty free beauty brand. Located in California, ColourPop manufacturers all of their own products locally. They are one of my favorite affordable beauty brands and have been around since 2013/2014. They have a full range of complexion and color products as well as sister brands that cover skincare and bodycare. The first product that they launched was their Super Shock Shadow. These shadows came in a large range of finishes and has a unique bouncy texture. They are super pigmented and last all day without creasing. The best part is that the shadows only cost $6.00 each! I have gathered quite a large collection of Super Shock Shadows over the years. They are my favorite shadows to use on my lid or as a lid topper over other shadows. They are also awesome for creating a quick look with one shadow swiped across the lids. The shadows apply the best and most pigmented using your finger to apply them to the lids.

    Favorite ColourPop Super Shock Shadows
    For some reason, they don't offer as many finishes as they used to. I really hope that they release more finishes like before. I wanted to share my favorite super shock shadows that I own because I think they are a really great product and very affordable. I have hit pan on most of them and always replace my favorites if they are still being made. Ulta carries a small selection of Super Shock Shadows as well. I just saw some on sale the other day for $3.50 each!

    Hey Guys,
    Today I'm going to share a brand I'm really excited about. The brand is called treStique and they are all about simple and quick beauty. I heard about the brand years ago when I got a mini shadow stick of theirs in my Ipsy Glam Bag. I remember really liking the product and even including it in one of my monthly favorites. Flash forward to 2020 I was re-introduced to treStique and I looked into it some more. I was very intrigued by the whole idea of "simple quick beauty". I have never been able to do my makeup quickly but with COVID and wearing less makeup in general, I really liked the idea of this. Their products are meant to be quick and easy for the mom or woman on the go or for someone that just doesn't want to spend a lot of time doing their makeup. treStique products are about convenience and are meant to enhance your natural beauty. The product lines cover everything from foundation, concealer, shadow/liner/mascara, brows, bronzer, concealer, and lip products. You can purchase these products individually or in sets. They even have mini sets if you don't want to commit to the full sizes just yet. The best part, all treStique products are super travel friendly! Keep reading to learn more about these products and to hear my thoughts on each.

I decided to check out the Charlotte Tilbury site to see if they had any kind of discounts since Sephora did not. That is when I found this lip kit that was $56.00 and on sale for $50.40. Buying each product separately would have been $56.00 as well. I was also able to sign up for their email and get and additional 10% off my order.

Lastly, they also offer an upgraded box every quarter called BoxyLuxe. This is an additional $28.99 a quarter. I am only currently subscribed to BoxyCharm Premium. The theme for this month was Boxy Vibing or Spring into Boxy. I think there was a bit of confusion on the theme this month as it may have changed. Keep reading to see what I got and to hear my thoughts. Also, make sure to check out the discount codes below for the month!

    Hey Guys,
    Today I'm going to share my thoughts on my Ipsy Glam Bag Plus for May! 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 also offer another box called Ipsy Ultimate which I believe was created to compete with BoxyLuxe. 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 subscriptions come with a makeup bag (different sizes per subscription type)  and you are able to pick one product in your box (GBP & GBU). With Glam Bag you are able to pick two. You are also able to skip a month whenever you feel like which is a huge bonus offering.
    Review: Ipsy Glam Bag Plus May 2020
    The theme for May was "Ipsy Get That Glow".  I was pretty excited about this box when I saw the spoilers and choice options. Keep reading to see what I got and to hear my thoughts. Also, make sure to check out the discount codes below for the month!

    Quick At Home HIIT Workouts

    Hey guys,
    My blog has been strictly about beauty and fashion for the past 6-7 years and I've decided to switch things up a bit. While I still plan to mainly talk about beauty and fashion I want to incorporate some lifestyle posts into it as well. Yes, beauty/fashion is a huge passion of mine but I also love home decorating, food, and working out. From time to time I am going to post some different content on my blog. It might be a recipe that I really loved or a home fashion haul or something workout related.


    Quick At Home HIIT Workouts
    Today I am going to share some of my favorite quick workouts that I do at home that do not require any equipment. I have more workout equipment than your average person. I have a bunch of Olympic weights and a Concept 2 Rower left from my ex husband. I also have a kettle bell, a sled, and a treadmill that I bought off of Craigslist. I have a small one car garage where most of my equipment lives and where I work out half of the time. While its easy to work out in my garage in the summer, the floors are not finished and I still park my car in there so it can get pretty dirty in the winter. Because of that and the fact that it gets pretty cold in there in the winter,  I have found some quick HIIT (high intensity interval training) workouts online that I can do in my own living room. They also do not require any equipment.

    Most of my workouts are between 8-20 minutes long. I always warm up on my treadmill first running a mile each time which equates to about 10 minutes for me. I usually do an ab workout later in the night as well.

    Spring Fashion Wish List
    Hey Guys,
    I hope everyone is staying safe and finding things to stay busy during this crazy time in the world. I have been home for over a month and am starting to get a little antsy. As much as it pains me to write this my trip to Italy in May is postponed (until when? who knows). I have been preparing for this trip for quite a while and had purchased a bunch of clothes from Fashion Nova. I also have an Amazon Fashion wish list for it as well. I haven't really purchased too much since everything went down besides food and wine (and my month subscription boxes). I have been trying to think of fashion content that I could create and since outfit of the day most likely won't happen any time soon I decided to share my Spring Fashion wish list. These are things that have been in the back of my mind that I wanted to purchase for my trip. I have been living in sweatpants and leggings lately but they are pieces that I can also wear once everything is somewhat back to normal. Keep reading to see we what's on my list!

    Hey Guys,
    Today I'm going to share my thoughts on the Ofra Cosmetics x Samantha March Collection! For those of you unfamiliar with Ofra Cosmetics, they are a cruelty free beauty brand out of Florida that is most known for their highlighters and liquid lipsticks. Ofra Cosmetics was created by Ofra Gaito and is a family owed/run business. Samantha March is an author (Amazon page here) and beauty influencer/YouTuber. I don't know Samantha on a personal level but we have crossed paths in the beauty community through influencer groups and events. Samantha is such a sweet, humble, and genuine person. I decided to pick up the whole PR Collection Box when it first launched last month to support her. Keep reading to hear more about the collection, to see swatches, and to hear my thoughts on each product!

    Hey Guys,

    Today I will be sharing the March edition of Beauty Box Throw Down. In this review I will be sharing what I got in both my BoxyCharm and my Ipsy Glam Bag Plus. BBTD is very similar to the regular reviews that I do where I show the products, link the products, share my thoughts, and the box total value. However, the difference with this is that I will also let you guys know which box that I think is a better value. Since I just cancelled my base box for Boxy charm, this will be my last Beauty Box Throw Down. So lets jump right in and see what I got!

    Hey Guys,
    Today I wanted to share my thoughts on the new e.l.f. Cosmetics Bite Sized Eyeshadows. I have a trip planned for the Spring and I was debating whether or not to pick up some of the Natasha Denona mini palettes. I then came across these and decided to pick some up since I heard good things and they are only $3.00 each! Keep reading to see swatches and hear what I thought about the ones that I purchased.
