little loves

Hello Lovelies!

Hope all you had a wonderful holiday week!! I originally had some post planned for this past week but I got really bought up in all the holiday prep that they got pushed aside. However they are coming this week and let me tell you how many AMAZING holiday giveaways I have coming up!!! You lovelies are about to be totally spoiled!

 On Sunday last week for date night me and the boy had our friends senior recital so I dolled myself up a bit. I LOVED this Noto skirt when they carried it forever ago but it didn't fit me right for whatever reason. My friend Jamie ended up getting it and have lusted after it since. Well lucky for me Jamie dropped a ton of weight and now this adorable skirt is just too big on her. I told her right away of it ever got too big I would buy it from her. I love it because I love high waisted body-con skirts like this, and this one is a little more unique than most. Who knows what the fitting problem was before because it fits like a charm now.

 I have gotten the amazing opportunity to compete in a contest sponsored by Nokia and LeiVanKash Jewellery. I got sent a brand new Nokia Lumia with unlimited data and text to help me create an inspiration board based on one of the five LeiVanKash collections. I am loving this phones camera and can't way for you lovelies to see what I come up with over the next few weeks! BTW how amazing are the LeiVanKash pieces?! LOVE!

I got my very first PopSugar MustHave box this week and I was REALLY happy with it! It comes with a bit of a hefty price tag of $35 for a monthly subscription box but I was lucky and got my first box for only $25 with a code. I decided that while I can't justify this every month I wanted to give it a shot over the holidays (usually holiday subscription boxes are the best). So I did a month-to-month that I can cancel at anytime. I'm planning on canceling after December just because of the funds.

Anyway back to the box! For $25 (or $35 regularly priced) I got all this fun stuff! I was most excited about the Gorjana bracelet because I already have one of these and I love it! I got my first one from my bother and sister in law as a gift in a thicker black version. The one in this box is a bit thinner of a band, smaller chain link, and in a really pretty ox-blood color. This is valued at $55 so that right there pays for the box itself. 

Next thing I was excited about was the StyleMint credit! And I got SUPER LUCKY and accidentally got TWO instead of one! One of these was worth $29.99 (so a total of $60 for me!) on any of the "mint" sites, such as StyleMint, IntiMint, ShoeMint, HomeMint, etc. I had wanted this adorable "long-john" style romper (below) from IntiMint a while back but couldn't stomach the $60 price tag then. I of course snatched it up right away with this credit as well as a $10 off code for like $23.

I waited on using my second code until I decided what I wanted to do with it but decided I wanted to grab one of these rompers for my mom as well for Christmas. I waited till Black Friday and snagged hers, and two pairs of undies for me for only $13 total with this credit and the 60% off code they were offering for Black Friday! SCORE!! I'll let you lovelies know what I think of it when I get it!! I'm hoping it's as comfy as it looks!

On a side note, I never realized you could subscribe to ANY of the "mints" and use your credit toward any of them! I think that's pretty cool!

Not pictured in the box above is this little Mor Lip Macaron that I also got in there. I love it!! It's so silky and not sticky at all!! This is worth like $15.

There was also a $30 credit for CanvasPop (but apparently there is $14 shipping which I probably won't use for that reason), a Yogalosophy DVD (I am hoping I use this- nice extra), a little spice trio (which is adorable and might be a good re-gift stocking stuffer), thank you cards (which seemed pretty generic to me but nice and can always be used), and a doughnut mix (which I am excited to make!). 

Overall my box was $25 and was worth well over $100 for me! I am really excited for December's box!! Do any of you lovelies get the PopSugar MustHave box

I also know of the code REFERFRIENDS that will save you $5 off your first box if you want to sign up too! You can do the month-to-month and cancel after just one box if you want too, why not? Better hurry though December's box is almost sold out!

 Wednesday night I went to my friend Tony's 7th annual night before Thanksgiving party. It is always a good time because I get to see so many people I only see a few times a year, and lots of friends are back in town for the holiday. 

I got the killer surprise that I WON two pouches of my FAVORITE, best kept secret Prtty Peaushun lotion on Thursday though their FB page contest! I got medium for me, and dark for my momma! I LOVE this lotion!! If you haven't yet tried, you MUST!

Overall GREAT week for me!! I am getting excited for Christmas and slowly getting some gifts purchased! And still ON THE HUNT for the perfect NYE dress! Have you lovelies found one yet? 

Have a wonderful week lovelies! Be on the lookout for new posts this week including a giveaway you won't want to miss!

  2. This box idea sounds really interesting. I will definitely look more into it. Nothing better than saving some money right? New follower on all your platforms if you can do the same.
