September Ipsy

This months Ipsy Bag was my favorite so far. I got some really great products that I am excited to try. If you do not know what Ipsy is its a monthly subscription service for $10. They send you 4-5 deluxe samples based on a questionnaire that you fill out. If your interested you can sign up here.

What I got this Month:

1. Briogeo Hair Mask- ($26) I love using hair masks. I currently do not have one so this came at a perfect time. I have heard good things about this brand also. I am excited to try it. Smells nice to. Very good size sample. I have already used this and am defiantly going to be trying more from this line.

2. Cailyn Tinted Lip Gloss- ($19) This says its a lip gloss, but I would say its more like a liquid lipstick. Very pigmented. Love the color. I believe this is a full size product. (see swatch below)

3. NYX Eyeshadow- ($4.50) Perfect crews color. I love the NYX eyeshadows. 

4. Crown Dual sided Brush- ($14) I love make up brushes. I think I was most excited about this dual sided brush. One side is a pencil brush and the other is a blending brush.

5. Pacific Nail Polish- ($9) FULL SIZE I think this color is perfect for fall. I will defiantly be putting this on my toes. 

Total if you were to purchase the full size of these would be $72.50. WOW All but one of these items were full size. Not bad for only $10.

Do you get the Ipsy bag each month? What did you get this month? We would love to hear!

Frugal Fashion Friday

Vest| ShirtShoes| Jeans| Necklace| Purse

I am so ready for fall fashion, but living here in Las Vegas that won't be happening for a few more months. 
This weeks Frugal Fashion Friday is not necessarily Frugal. Sorry. I just recently bought the coveted Jcrew vest! I told myself if I could come up with 10 different ways to wear it it was worth every penny. I came home and quickly went to town putting outfits together. I was putting things together and quickly realized that it will go with EVERYTHING. So in my opinion it was worth every penny. I didn't pay full price for it either. SO WIN!!!

Finding staples are a necessity for me. I don't mind paying a little more money for things I know I can wear for more than one season and can wear for years to come. Its worth it to me to pay more money on something I know I will wear a lot than on something that I may wear a couple times. I have been recently cleaning out my closet and have gotten rid of things that I have worn a couple times and don't love or just doesn't fit right etc, and investing in good pieces. I think in the long run you end up saving money. If you are really only buying good quality pieces that you are wearing all the time. and then spicing them up with accessorizes. But if this is not your thing and you like the more trendy pieces than that's OK to. This is just my own opinion.

This was a different Frugal Fashion Friday, Hope you don't mind!

DIY Craft Tags

One Of my Newest obsessions is DIY Kraft items. like Tags , Envelopes, Cards , ATCs (Art Trading Cards). I use for my Planner, scrap-booking, cardmaking, collecting and sending or swaping to people! 
These Tags have been my Fav right now!! super cheap and super simple! My personal style is the vintage shabby chic looking ones. You can do them however you would like.
I got plain tags and doilies from dollar section at target or dollar store.  I also got my fav twines, Washi tapes and stickers together to make this one below. just grab a glue stick place doily where you want it and glue on.. turn around and cute excess off. 

I love how they turn out!!


I also like to clip cool photos from my magazines. heavens knows I have thousands laying around my house collecting dust. (I spend more time on IG and Pintrest now. )
Cut as close to picture as you can or just cut a box around.

After wards you have a bunch of Super Cute Tags! If you have questions I am happy to answer!
