With Style and a Little Grace: Weekend Update + Product Review

Weekend Update + Product Review

It's Monday guys and I don't know where the weekend went. I started my first 5 am work-out today and it was brutal. Hopefully I can continue this trend through the fall. Here's what's been going on around here.
 
I have been working on our mantle and am playing around with a few different things right now. The Halloween decorations went up last week and it just makes me so happy to come home and turn on my little Halloween lights!


Finally got a hair cut/color on Friday and am so happy with how it turned out. I was in some serious need of a fresh look. This girl is getting back to regular appointments.


I absolutely love it when they style my hair but I know that the day after  I will not be able to make it look this good again. I am also loving my scarf I found at TJ Maxx.

 
Belated Birthday gift came in the mail from my husband and it was the BEST GIFT EVER! I got my first pair of Tory Burch Reva flats. Kind of obsessed with the packaging.
 

I got a sample of the new Tory Burch fragrance. I wanted it even before I smelled it and now I really want it. The scent is so fresh, girly, and light. The adorable packaging doesn't hurt.


So I have a little confession. On Friday I blogged about all the fab beauty bloggers from Style me Swanky to check out here. I must confess that between Friday and Saturday I literally watched several hours worth of their you tube videos, realized I needed to do a beauty overhaul, did some shopping, and have made a list of all the new products I want to try. Y'all have to check them out. I am seriously OBSESSED. These girls know what they are talking about. I have all my new products listed below and will let you know how I like everything as I go through it all.

On another side note, I did a little pampering night on Friday and it was so nice. Those nights in college  getting ready with my girl friends was my favorite thing to do. Trying new products, painting nails, doing face masks so much fun!


New Products added to my beauty cabinet 

Kenra hairspray in firm hold. I already used this and it really holds curl great so far.

Nyx products were really talked about a lot on the videos and they are so inexpensive. I picked up their black liner and a new eye palette.

Estee Lauder Double Wear Foundation The finish on this foundation is flawless and I was in the market for a new one.

I also picked up a sample of the Estee Lauder Advanced Night Repair and I will be purchasing it. My skin already felt so soft after one night of use.

Ben Nye Powder  in banana leaves the best finish. I snagged it after one of my favorite bloggers Leslie talked about it here on her blog A Blonde Ambition.

Organix Moroccan argan oil I am not sold on this version. I blogged about wanting moroccan oil for my hair here and think I am going to purchase one of those oils next. This one smells great but leaves my hair a little oily.

Funk Butter is a great organic deodorant. It is all natural and smells like coconut. I love it but it is starting to stain my shirts. 

Neutrogena Alcohol- Free Toner I was in desperate need for a new toner. This one doesn't have much smell and doesn't have the burn of my old toners.... which I kind of miss. Only used it two nights so still undecided on this product.

So this was the longest Monday post ever! I plan on doing more beauty update posts coming soon. Seriously check out those videos they are great!! Have an amazing week!
