Trend Watch | Little Luxuries

I’m so excited, ya’ll!  My very first Birchbox arrived last week.  Yes, I realize that I’m late to the game but it’s something I’ve wanted to do for like, foreva.

If you’re not familiar with Birchbox, it’s this little box of happiness that arrives once a month filled up with a curated mix of luxe beauty product samples.  Best part, it’s only $10 a month!  Totally Payday Pretty approved.

Here are the little luxuries I got in my first box:

November 2012 Birchbox:  Stila highlighter, Color Club nail polish in Put a Pin in It, Sheaterra Organics Bananas & Baobabs Whipped Shea Butter body moisture cream, John Varvatos Artisan eau de toilette,Keras tase Chroma Riche conditioning packets, a cute hair tie and a coupon for $15 off a purchase at Chromatic.

Do you know a woman who could use a little luxury in her life?  Maybe it’s you!  A Birchbox subscription makes a great gift.  You can purchase one month for $10, three months for $30, six months for $60 or a year for $110.  There’s something at every price point, depending on how much you want to spend.  (Psst, don’t tell the women on my Christmas list but they’ll be getting these this year!)


Today’s outfit is another “pin-spired” look that I re-created last week for Pinterest Told Me To.  I really, really love this outfit and even wore it to church last Sunday.

Inspiration look:

  • I really, really like this outfit. My issues with the 90’s have made me afraid of wearing double denim, but you are changing my mind (and that’s a big job!). Nice work interpreting the inspiration and making it your own. You look fabulous.
