Fall Finds

...and just like that, it's fall - my favorite time of the year! As an avid blog reader, I love seeing all the bloggers break out their boots, scarves and sweaters and create fun, new laying combinations.  I saw this camel coat on Harper's Bazaar's "Must Have Items" for fall 2014...but with a price tag of $3,895 it inspired me to find an inexpensive look-a-like!

Splurges & Steals

Hi, everyone!  
I'm back to share some favorite beauty products that I've been loving lately.  As always, I'm on a mission to perfect my daily routine in order to get myself together as efficiently as possibly!  Sadly, that doesn't always mean the most cost effective way...  However, I'm balancing out my "splurges" with some awesome drug store finds so I'm not breaking the bank.

// Splurges //
Hourglass Arch Brow Sculpting Pencil ($32):  The slanted applicator shape is perfect for getting a clean look while filling in your brows.  Has great staying power and and the spooly brush helps you get a natural look!

Bare Minerals BareSkin Foundation and Perfecting Face Brush ($57 for both): I truly believe my complexion has gotten better since using this! It's extremely light weight but has a decent amount of coverage. To truly take advantage of the product, I think the accompanying brush is a must.  For a more complex review, see Kate and Merrick's blog posts.

Oribe Dry Texturizing Spray: ($21 or $42): Smells beyond amazing and adds just the perfect touch of umph for fuller, piece-er hair.

// Steals // 
Milani Baked Blush in Dolce Pink ($7.50):  Tried this after seeing Veronika's post and it's just a beautiful as described!  Definitely pick this up the next time you're at CVS.  

Denman Natural Bristle Brush ($16): This brush actually helps me go longer between washing my hair! It redistributes the oil from your scalp through the shaft of your hair, making your roots less greasy...and way cheaper than this $205 version.

Milani Brow Shaping Gel ($4.50): Another Blogger recommendation. Works just as well as higher end brands so save your money and buy this one.
