After working at the Loft for two years, I tend to avoid shopping at ATL. Something about folding all those sweaters; it brings back bad memories of endless piles of cashmere blends getting messed up by customers every 5 minutes. I recently saw this beautiful coat on another blogger and was so drawn to the large leopard print and versatile design. It's the perfect piece to dress up or down. Even though it is from Ann Taylor I am can't wait for a sale to try this piece on and hopefully make it my own!

This was the first time in months that I hadn't chose a curated box for my Birchbox. It was nice to be surprised after knowing what all of my products would be. I did choose one sample that came as a perk from bring a Birchbox Ace. Every month I consider whether I should continue to subscribe, and I am consistently very happy with the products I get. Thanks Birchbox for exposing me to so many wonderful beauty items for all these months. I continue to be a very satisfied customer.
Smashbox Cosmetics Be Legendary Lip Gloss
I often think, "This color would be perfect for spring" when I get them in my Birchboxes. Well, spring is finally around the corner. I liked the color of this gloss so much I put it right on. It looked so pretty! The only disappointment was how sticky it was. I tend to avoid glosses because I can't stand a super sticky texture. I think the color was so nice I will give this a try, but I am not sure I would invest in the full-size version.
amika Bombshell Blowout Spray
I am hooked on this spray! I have been a fan of the amika dry shampoo for a while now, but I had no idea how great their other products would be. I use this on towel dried hair before blowdrying and I love the shine and lift that is gives my blowout. I like to section my hair into top and bottom halves when blowdrying and I use this on each layer before hitting it with my round brush for my daily style. This is a must buy! Glad I have some points saved up for the BB Shop!
Harvey Prince Sincerely
Sometimes I wish I wasn't so hooked on Mark Jacobs Lola and Oh Lola! because I never give any other scents a chance. I like fragrance samples because they are convenient for packing and let me mix things up and this one is no exception. The scent is light and fresh- perfect for warmer weather. If you are a seasonal scent kind of girl, this would be a great choice for the hot months ahead!
Macadamia Professional Nourishing Moisture Masque
Macadamia Professional is one of my favorite hair care brands. Unlike some of the other oils that leave hair greasy, these products give you shine and body. I used the conditioning mask this morning after shampooing and my hair felt soft and had great bounce in my ponytail all day. I am very pleased with this product because it was a big sample and it did wonders for my hair. I also plan to purchase this mask with my points.
Jelly Pong Pong Glow Getter Highlighter
I guess I didn't read the packaging on this product well enough because I thought it was a nail polish and dropped it right into my basket of mani/pedi essentials. This product is actually a highlighter! I had no idea! It reminds me a lot of a Benefit product that I sometimes use. I prefer a powder highlighter to a cream or gel, but I am sure this will be a fun product to try next time I spend a little extra time on my makeup routine.
