Style: In Pursuit of the Perfect Pumpkin

Sweater: H&M $24.95 | Skirt: J.Crew Factory $52.15Necklace: BaubleBar $110
Sunglasses: my dad's vintage | Boots: Anne Klein | Purse: Mulberry

An autumn day on the farm is not complete without some of the fall's best nature-inspired colors and textures. Last weekend I went to Stults Farm in Cranbury Township, NJ to hunt for the perfect Halloween pumpkin! I brought along my favorite shades of grey, brown, and green. I love mixing and matching classic hunting or preppy style attire like cable knit sweaters, plaid, tweed, riding boots, monogram necklaces, and pebble leather saddle bags.

Happy Harvest!

Winter Beauty Woes? Paging Dr. Lipp...

Dr. Lipp Original Nipple Balm for Lips c/o Birchbox

There's a fantastic British beauty product you may not yet have hear of...not just because it is new to the States but also because of it's cheeky name.

Dr. Lipp's Original Nipple Balm for Lips may be a bit awkward to say out loud for the modest among us...but the product's effectiveness is definitely nothing to be shy about! Dr. Lipp's proven results for mothers inspired make-up artists to use it for a variety of skincare "emergencies" like flaky lips and dry skin patches. It leaves a smooth rather than sticky feel and has virtually no odor. It's 100% natural - made from purified lanolin. 

It's a great cure-all to carry in your purse. You can use it on chapped lips, cracked cuticles around your nail, your hair's split ends, sunburns, and more! Its soothing power provides instant relief and locks in moisture. I get very chapped lips in the fall and winter. After using the product just once I noticed long lasting relief unparalleled by any other lip product I have tried.

I received this product for free through Birchbox's #BirchBloggers program to test and review for you. It is currently for sale on their e-commerce site for $14.50. You won't need another lip care product this winter. This truly works wonders! Buy it HERE.

Beauty: Sample Society October 2013 Box Review

After missing out on the Best of British Glossybox and getting my Birchbox fix with two fantastic build your own boxes at Birchbox Local, I decided to try a new sample box this month! I saw a Facebook ad for Allure & BeautyBar.com's Sample Society announcing that the October box would contain a Butter London nail polish. Since those polishes retail at $15 and the box containing 5 products was only $15, I figured I'd give it a shot - not much to lose!

I was definitely NOT disappointed! The samples came in a sturdy reusable box (like a smaller sized Glossybox). In addition to the 5 samples, it contained a mini Allure guide with some great makeup tips and a voucher for $15 off a purchase of $50+ on Beautybar.com containing any of the brands included in this month's box. The voucher is an especially good deal if you're planning on buying a pricey product like a fragrance. I would definitely consider using it on a Diptyque candle!

I was super psyched to see a Diptyque sample in the box! The eau de toilette samples can run for $10 or more on ebay!!! It's just a .06 fl. oz. sample but a full size perfume $135. This scent, 34 Boulevard St. Germain, was developed in homage to the brand's 50th anniversary. The scent is really nice - it smells really fresh, sort of powdery and beachy.

I haven't used the Radial Skin Care Age-Defying Exfoliating Pads yet. The sample is quite large though (15 pads) and the product is valued at $95. I look forward to testing them out and seeing how they promote cell turnover to create more youthful looking skin. I love skincare products that are really easy to use and these look fabulous.

I've tested out the IPKN BB Cream on just a swatch of my skin - I didn't want to use up too much of the small tube just yet. I love the subtle glow it creates when you rub it into your skin. It definitely makes you look more perky and well-rested. So, it's great on dark circles under tired eyes! It's also got SPF 45 which is one of the highest I've seen in BB Cream or any other skincare product!!! My skin is very light and prone to sunburn so that's an amazing feature for me. The full size product retails at about $35.

Of course, as I said, I was super excited about the Butter London nail polish. I already own several colors and am always impressed with how much longer a manicure lasts using Butter lacquer vs. some other brands. There were a variety of colors given out in this box. I was very lucky and received a color I adore! It's called British Racing Green. It's a deep hunter green with some iridescent glitter throughout. It will be absolutely perfect for the fall and winter!

 Last but not least was the Minus 417 Hand Moisturizer. The scent is really sweet and reminds me of angel food cake (yes, very specific). It contains natural olive oils and primrose oils but too me does smell a little bit too sweet. Just a little bit will go a long way, so I think this 1.7 oz sample will last quite a long time. It deeply hydrates and left my skin feeling softer than almost any other product I've tried. So, I would definitely recommend it in cold weather. The full size product retails at $14.

Overall I was VERY pleased with my first Sample Society box. I received products from 2 brands I already loved (Butter and Diptyque) and got to explore products from 3 other fantastic new brands. I also loved the beauty guide and coupon. It was another way to take the sample experience one step further. I will definitely be ordering another box in the future!
