Hairstyle of the day: bun

So this morning, I needed a hairstyle that would look great by the en of the day because I am going to a party tonight and won't have time to go home shower and do my hair again. Lately I have been sleeping with my hair bobby pined into a bun and by the next morning it's voluminous and has a bit of a wave. So that is what I decided to do today.

All I did was pull my hair up like I would into a ponytail, twisted it to the tips and wound it into a bun and secures it with several bobby pins. What do you think?

Nail Polish of the Moment - Essie Raspberry

For the past couple weeks I have been wearing this color on my nails.  Its a bit deeper color than I was wearing for summer, so this for me is like a transition into fall nail color. I like that its just a nice medium pinky color that could really be worn all year round.  

2 coats

I have always loved Essie nailpolish.  I really like the size brush for my small hands and nails and the color selection and quality is really great.  This comes off opaque after one coat, but to get the color a bit darker and closer to the color in the bottle, I added another coat.  

What is your favorite color to wear around this time of year?

Scent I am loving at the moment

I recently went to Bath & Body Works because their three wick candles were 2 for $20 (they are normally $19.50 each) and I just could not pass that deal up. So, I don't know about you guys, but whenever I go into Bath & Body Works, I am in there for like an hour or more. I can never decide on what to get because everything smells so good! So I was trying to be good, so I only bought 2 candles (and 2 wallflowers and 2 refills for them) and so far, I am LOVING this one, Pumpkin Caramel Latte. I love sweet smells and this one is just fantastic. This scent is described as "Scent your home with this rich blend of creamy pumpkin, spiced caramel and sweet cream and keep your treasured autumn drink all season long." It smells sooooo good. It has just a hint of that latte/coffee smell which I absolutely love (even though I don't drink/like coffee). I would definitely recommend smelling this one if you happen to go into a Bath & Body Works store, it is so good.


NARS Larger Than Life Volumizing Mascara

I bought this mascara about 6 months ago (eek, I think its about time to toss it huh?) and instantly fell in love.  I bought the mascara a few weeks after I had my makeup dont at the NARS event at Sephora, where the girl doing my makeup used this mascara.

Maybelline Mega Plush Volume Express Waterproof Mascara

So last week, I picked up a new mascara, the Maybelline Mega Plush Volume Express Waterproof (phew, that's a mouthful) mascara.  For the past few months I have been using the NARS Larger Than Life Volumizing  Mascara and I LOVE it, except that its $25.  So I have been on the hunt for something that gives me similar results as the NARS mascara, which is tons of volume, no clumping, nicely separated lashes.  I think I may have found it in the Mega Plush mascara.

September Birchbox!

If you don't already know what Birchbox is, i'll tell you.  Birchbox is a monthly subscription service where you get 4-5 deluxe beauty samples in the mail for $10 a month.  There is no contract, you can be billed monthly and cancel whenever you would like (like anyone would ever cancel!).  You can also earn birchbox points by buying products off of their website and by reviewing items you have gotten in your box. These points can add up towards $$ off of a product from their site.  I have been with birchbox for about 7 months now and I just love it! You get to try all new products and brands and see what you like and don't like.

Here are pictures and descriptions of everything that was included in this months box.
