Happy Valentine's Day, everyone! No matter who you're celebrating with today - gals, sweethearts, roommates, family; I hope the day has a special sparkle and maybe a sweet surprise or two in store?

This became my "Valentine's Day outfit" unintentionally, when I took these pictures with Adriane a couple weeks ago and she said "your Valentine's sweater!" Uhh, right. She keeps this blog going, I swear.

Isn't this sweater dreamy though?? Fuzzy sweaters are probably my favorite trend from the past few years (as evidenced here here and here), they're equal parts girly and muppet, and I can't NOT be happy when wearing one. I picked this one at Zara in Helsinki (a big TY to my Mummo & Ukki for sponsoring this purchase.) It is a great thing that I do not have easy access to a Zara during this no-buy year. I swear that everything I own that looks remotely "cool" or "fashion forward" or "avant-garde" is straight off the racks at Zara. There. That's my fashion secret!

I don't think you can really accurately see the delicious plum color of these trousers except for that one picture where the sun is shining (I don't love it, but I needed you to know that these pants are PURPLE.) Purple + pink, or more accurately today, plum + blush is the new red + pink. Take that to the bank! I'm actually wearing the same color combo today, outfit pics maybe to come because I like how it turned out. Oh, these exact trousers are still available at Old Navy in limited sizes (I think?) but the pair in the widget looks really similar!

My hair is now "can't wash it in my vintage shower without running out of hot water" long, and I kept saying, I can't cut it yet because of how much I spent on this mother@#$%^&* balayage, but I'm getting it cut & re-colored next week. Ok?

Anybody have big plans tonight?? Art & I have been swapping this terrible cold instead of candy hearts for the last week and a half, so we're keeping things chill tonight (I am taking him to Taco Bell! If you must know!?) but we're planning a date for this weekend, can't wait!

xoxo!

Can I tell you a secret? I am wearing a cardigan backwards in these photos. Wild!

I think it actually worked out pretty well. Have you been watching the new season of True Detective? I've been spellbound and so, so, glad they went back to their roots with a three-timelined Southern story, like the first season. I've also been loving the outfits worn by Carmen Ejogo (Amelia, the female lead.) This outfit is somewhat inspired by the 1980 version of her - she has these fabulous brown heeled boots she wears, and I thought to myself, I have a similar pair...

I've worn my cowboy boots on & off on this blog for years, and though they may sit in my closet for a while unworn, I'll never get rid of them, because they are timeless! At least as long as I'm living in Nashville. I always tell people to look for boots at the flea market first - everywhere else they are WAY overpriced, and I love the worn-in look you get with a vintage pair.

We've been having a bit of an early Spring snap the past few days, but last week we got some truly WINTER weather, so I had a chance to break out the layers. I was marveling at how well this green coat has served me in Nashville Winters past, and even two trips to Finland! If it's truly cold where I am, you can bet I'll be wearing this coat. It really is my old faithful, and not bad for an affordable Old Navy purchase. I don't know that this parka style of coat is even really in style anymore...so eventually, I'd love to upgrade to a long puffer like this one. But! I'm not shopping right now and Winter in Nashville might be almost over for this year anyway. 

I hope you all have had a good week! I've been sick with a nasty cold for the entire week, which really threw me off. So annoying when your body won't cooperate with your plans, right? Tonight (assuming I am still alive) I am going to the freaking ballet with some friends! You know I love a high-class Friday night. I'm planning to spin up a little tuxedo, and I'll try to share some pics! If it really turns out, maybe I'll do an outfit post, since things rarely get fancy around here.

November Boxycharm Review

Thursday, January 31

Hey beauties, let's talk about some make-up. It's a Boxycharm day!

If you're new around here, here's the scoop:

Boxycharm is a subscription service that sends you 5-6 (often more!) full-sized beauty products for $20/month. Products are mostly in the make-up category, but usually include one hair or skincare item. There's also a good mix of more affordable/indie brands and high-end brands (I've received products by Tarte, Kat Von D, Smashbox, Lorac, and Ofra, to name a few.) And I always say this, but every time, the retail value of ONE item covers the price of the entire box. It really is an amazing deal.

So this post is a little awkward because I'm behind on blogging about Boxycharm (hello, November box!) and I also no longer have an active subscription. But! I want to be clear that I cancelled my subscription solely because I am living in excess (+ as a part of my no-buy year), but I still stand by a Boxycharm subscription 100%, whether you're a beauty fanatic, or just starting to dabble.

Take a look at all my past Boxycharms right here.



Here's what I received back in November:
Priya the Blog, Nashville beauty blog, Nashville beauty blogger, November 2018 Boxycharm review, Boxycharm review, subscription service, Boxycharm November 2018, CoverFX Glitter Drops, Luxie Brushes, It Cosmetics Moisturizer, Ace Beaute Grandiose Palette, Jonteblu eyeliner, Lashaholic lashes, beauty reviews
+ ACE Beaute Grandiose Palette | retail value: $25
Ok, I'm going to rave about how much I love this palette. In my mind, it's pretty much the perfect eyeshadow palette. The colors are gorgeous and pigmented, and it includes not only neutral mattes for a simple every day look, but statement colors, AND shimmers. "Jasmine" is an infallible inner corner highlight, pop "Cinnamon" in your crease for a go-to everyday look, and I have been LOVING a cranberry smokey eye ("Rose" + "Poppy".) Both of the warm-toned shimmers are stunning. I used this palette all throughout the holiday season, and it even traveled with me! I daresay this is my favorite eyeshadow palette I've received in a Boxycharm.

+ It Cosmetics Secret Sauce Moisturizer | retail value (travel size): $20
I can't figure out why I received this - I'm guessing it's some sort of "please don't cancel" bonus? Anyway, this was the perfect little moisturizer to throw in my bag for my holiday travels. I've loved all the It Cosmetics products I've tried, and this is a super emollient moisturizer, a lot goes a long way!

JonteBlu Glittering Star Eyeliner | retail value: $5
This eyeliner is fun, though I don't feel like I have many occasions to wear eyeliner with silver glitter in it? This is evidenced by the fact that I own several pencils like this? Also the pencil itself is very scratchy. I would prefer a shimmer or metallic eyeliner, instead of one with chunks of glitter in it. Not my favorite.

+ Luxie Luminous Eyes Set | retail value: $30
Well this brush set is just darling, but not my favorite. Generally I like a much bigger/fluffier crease brush to blend my eyeshadow really well, and these are just too small. The one exception to this is (I thiiink) the 111 Mini Flat Angled (second from right), which is now my new favorite inner corner highlight brush.

+ CoverFX Glitter Drops in Nova | retail value: $44
This is a gorgeous/expensive product that can be used as a highlight, or an illuminator in your foundation or lotion. I'm most excited to mix this in with some body lotion, as I've been known to be very extra and wear shimmer lotion (and I've run out!) I can't imagine using this all over my face, and it was very intense/GLITTER as a highlight.

+ Lashaholic Instaglam Luxury Lashes | retail value: $15
I absolutely love this style of lashes! You can see in the picture that they are spikey, and looked extra glam and festive. I wore these to our office holiday party. These are reusable too, so I'll be able to wear them several more times. This is the third set of lashes I've received from Boxycharm, and they're one of my favorite things to get in a box!

TOTAL VALUE: $139 !!!

This was a pretty great box and I'll be honest, I've already gotten major FOMO seeing what has been included in the latest boxes.

As always, let me know what beauty products you are loving lately! Are you subscribed to Boxycharm or another subscription service? I'll live vicariously through you. Share in the comments below!
