Trendsend Review: Fall Trends

- Let's Spend Some Money, Reviews

Stitch Fix is a favorite of mine but sometimes I feel like the words “mom” and “40” pigeon hole me into a certain “list” of clothing choices somewhere in their database so it’s always fun to throw another boxed subscription into the mix with Evereve Trendsend. It works a lot like Stitch Fix in that you complete a style profile and schedule your box to ship. Unlike Stitch Fix, however, there is no styling fee and you can schedule as many…

KidBox is Stitch Fix for Kids

- General Fabulousness, Reviews

While lately my last few Stitch Fixes have been disappointing, the idea of clothing that someone else picked out showing up on my doorstep is still pretty damn awesome. KidBox was created with that same intention, only this time they’re shipping clothes to your kiddo. Try it on at home, keep what you like, exchange any items that don’t fit or return. Can’t get any easier, right? A new KidBox is available every quarter as the seasons change, and they offer…

Stitch Fix: Weekend Getaway

- Reviews

Recently, I got to go on a work trip to a very fabulous location. So I did what any working mom would do: asked a grandma to come watch the kids and bought a ticket for my husband to meet me out there. We have not had a kids-free trip in YEARS (literally seven!), plus it was right around both of our birthdays, so we were ready to have some fun. Of course, that means new clothes! And since there’s…

If you’re new to Trendsend, you may be wondering what all the fuss is about! Evereve Trendsend box works a lot like Stitch Fix in that you complete a style profile and schedule your box to ship.

Stitch Fix Review: Pre-Fall

- Let's Spend Some Money, Reviews

I took a hiatus from Stitch Fix for the summer in an attempt to keep my budget in check. But like all good things, it kept calling my name so I thought that awkward season between summer and fall was the perfect excuse to request another fix! That familiar combination of giddy nervousness came flooding back when I pulled into my driveway and saw my Stitch Fix box by the front door. Like a little girl on Christmas morning, I…

Stitch Fix: All Black & White Edition

- Beauty & Style, Reviews

I feel like every day I’m faced with making thousands of different decisions at home and at work. Some are small (What should we eat for dinner tonight?) and some are large (Is this the best way for our company to spend this money?). Most days I feel like the majority of my brain power is used up making thousands of small decisions, and I find myself staring at my closet for more time then I’m willing to admit trying to…

Play by Sephora August Box

Editor’s Note: This is NOT a paid post. I used my own, hard-earned money to purchase a subscription to Play! by Sephora. There’s nothing quite like coming home from work on a Friday to a box of MAKEUP!! (Say it in an Oprah voice please!) This is my second Play! by Sephora box, and while the first one was okay but not great, I’m kinda in love with the August one. This month’s theme for the Play! by Sephora August box…

A Tall & Curvy Mom Tries Le Tote

- General Fabulousness, Reviews

I have given myself a pretty generous monthly clothing and beauty allowance (hey, work hard, shop hard, right?) but lately, I’ve been surpassing that budget. By a lot. So in an effort to reign in some admittedly frivolous spending and at Liz’s urging, I decided to try the clothing rental service Le Tote. Le Tote is a monthly rental service where you can rent a box of clothing items. Liz recently tried it and is hooked, but let’s face it…

I Tried the Skin Care Mask That’s All Over Your Social Media Feed

- Beauty & Style, Reviews
Hanacure mask and brush

Editor’s Note: This Brutally Honest Review of the Hanacure mask is NOT a paid or sponsored post, and even if it was, I would still give you my brutally honest opinion. Nevertheless, I spent my own hard-earned money on this! As I approach my mid-thirties, I’m more focused on skin care than ever before. My chief skin complaints include, but certainly aren’t limited to: redness, especially in my cheeks; acne (there’s a big one right now on my forehead) and…
