Snag Her Swag | Rita Ora's Grammys Glamour

Rita Ora, Grammys 2014, Gold Dress, Lanvin, Look for Less

It may be cold and snowy here in North Carolina, but this past weekend at the Grammys the fashion was red hot! Rita Ora was a stunner in this gorgeous, metallic Lanvin dress, and as soon as I saw her in it, I knew I wanted to find a way to get this red carpet look for less. It is a perfect party look from the throes of winter to those scorching summer nights! Ora showed off her playful side by adding ginormous cocktail rings to each finger. Do I smell a new trend brewing?

Birchbox | January 2014 - Review


Birchbox, $10/month
Ever since beauty subscription boxes began to gain steam, I've been dreaming of subscribing to one of my very own. I'd spend countless hours scouring blogs for unboxing posts just to feel like I was in on all the fun. But, of course, it wasn't as amazing as finding one of those boxes on my own doorstep would be. For years Birchbox had been at the top of my lust list, so I was thrilled to bits when my mom surprised me with a full year's subscription for Christmas! So, today, instead of reading all of those other unboxing posts, I get to bring you my very own Birchbox review. Let's take a peek at what came in this month's box!
