Searching for "tie front"

TILI x It’s All Chic To Me

Tili It's All Chic To Me December Box

I have been compensated by QVC for this post, but all thoughts, designs, and opinions are my own!

Eeeek! The day is FINALLY here and it legit feels like Christmas morning! I am so excited to announce my collaboration with QVC to create my very own TILI beauty box for all of you! TILI is QVC’s monthly beauty subscription box and it stands for for Try It, Love It which is the perfect name for it being that this box makes it super easy for you to try new and trending beauty products before deciding if you want to invest in the full price item. One of my very favorite parts of my job is being able to sample a wide variety of fun products so if you are anything like me, you will absolutely love this box that get’s delivered to your front door every month with eight amazing beauty items. While it is a subscription box, there is no risk in joining the program as you can cancel it whenever you would like!

And I might be a little bias, but this is the best box to date being that it has TWO full price beauty products in it and the entire box costs less than one of those items!! You read that right. The entire box is just $25 and I’m sharing all of the details below on why I picked each of these items to be in my box!

Tili It's All Chic To Me December Box

Can we take a moment to first talk about what the actual box looks like?! When QVC asked me to design the box, I knew I wanted to make it cute enough to put directly under the Christmas tree or to give as a gift- no wrapping paper needed! I am confident that any girl in your life- bestie, sister, mom, or MIL- would absolutely love to receive this gift box this holiday season.

Tili It's All Chic To Me December Box

Now let’s get down to what is in the box. You will be receiving eight products in your TILI subscription box (Elemis Oxygenating Night Cream not pictured). These will be a mix of full and travel sized items. I’m over the moon that I was able to select not one, but TWO full sized items for you girls that I personally can’t live without. With the total price of the box being just $25, you are basically getting an entire box of goodies for free since the price of one of these full sized items normally costs more than the entire price of the box! So let’s start with the two full sized items shall we?

Isle of Paradise Self Tanning Mist

I’ve raved about this tanning product for close to a year now as it has quickly become one of my favorite products. Most tanning products have a terrible smell but this one is completely odorless! While that is a plus in itself, it is also clear in color and does not transfer onto clothing or bedding AND you don’t even have to shower it off. This product is sprayed directly onto the skin and rubbed in with a tanning mitt. Results can be seen in 6-8 hours and it gives a very natural glow. You will be receiving shade medium which is the perfect shade for both fair and darker skin tones as it is a gradual tanning product and the more you use, the darker your tan will be. This product alone is typically $28.

IT Cosmetics BYE BYE PORES Pressed Powder

Do you have issues with your make up getting greasy or oily throughout the day? This translucent powder is going to change your life! The purpose of a translucent powder is to set your make up and give you that airbrushed finished look all day long. The powder form is going to lock in your make up and also absorb any excess oil throughout the day. It comes with a sponge applicator although I prefer to use a damp beauty blender to apply it over my concealer and then I use a brush for all over my face post foundation! While I usually only have to apply this in the morning, I’ll sometimes throw it in my bag to powder my nose throughout the day if I know it’s going to be a long day and I want my make up to stay looking fresh. This product alone is typically $29.

Clinique Moisture Surge

I’ve used this product off and on over the years and always wonder why I stop. It’s SO good and personally is my favorite when I’m traveling as it really does do exactly what the name says. It packs a large hydration punch which I find is much needed after traveling and in the winter months. It has a somewhat gel like consistency and immediately absorbs into the skin. You will want to throw this one in your travel bag for sure!

Caj Beauty Voluminzing Finishing Spray 

I feel like one of those products I always need but never seem to have on hand is hair spray. I love this one because it also doubles as a voluminizing spray plus it is vanilla scented. The scent is not too strong but does smell good! The travel size makes it easy if you do not want to check a bag when you travel.

SuperSmile Professional Whitening System

I’m really excited about this product because it actually works! I’ve tried so many different teeth whitening products over the years and this is the first that I can say fits into my lifestyle. Any other product I have tried requires hours of bleaching your teeth through strips or trays, whereas this is a daily toothpaste so the results are more gradual but still very effective. The kit comes with a toothpaste and an accelerator which are both applied directly to your tooth brush and then you simply brush your teeth like normal.

Soon Strawberry Lip Mask with Collagen

This is another favorite of mine that I got to put in the box that I know you girls will love. It is a single use lip mask and if you’ve never used a lip mask you are missing out! Especially during the colder months, this one is great because it hydrates and moisturizes your lips. I don’t know about you girls but I hate having dry, cracked lips during the holidays when I’m trying to rock a bold lipstick!

Too Faced Damn Girl! Mascara 

This mascara was a newer product for me to try out. Not going to lie the cute packaging was what got my attention at first but the actual mascara is even better! The applicator brush is super thick leaving your lashes voluminous and the closest thing false lashes you are going to it. Plus it’s travel sized!

Autumn and Winter Capsule Wardrobe

Autumn and Winter Capsule Wardrobe

I’ve had several requests over the years to do a seasonal capsule wardrobe and I’m so excited to be sharing my very first one. After years of buying pieces that just laid around in my closet all season long, I’ve narrowed down what I consider to be my most worn wardrobe staples. If you haven’t heard of the term capsule wardrobe, it is a collection of a few essential items of clothing that never go out of style augmented with a few seasonal or trendy pieces. So if you are trying to purge the excess in your closet and invest in pieces that you know you will get their money’s worth, look no further!

TOPS & COATS

The key to having a killer wardrobe starts here and it’s all about layers and mixing prints. Sweaters come a dime a dozen, so find a couple that you love. My two most worn in my closet are this v neck sweater that I can layer a striped tee or plaid button down under. It instantly takes your outfit to the next level without having to wear a coat. The second is this cowl neck sweater that is long enough to wear with leggings or can be front tucked into a pair of jeans.

When it comes to coats, moto jackets are my personal favorite. I own both the BlankNYC suede and leather moto jackets. I like that they are a more fitted coat, not too bulky and have a slight edgy look. If you are wanting to layer anything more than a long sleeve tee underneath, I suggest sizing up in these. If you are needing a jacket with more warmth, this is the best parka out there and comes in so many pretty colors.

BOTTOMS & DRESSES

This might be the easiest part of your wardrobe simply because there’s not a ton of options out there and you just need a few good basics that will go with everything. Invest in two great pairs of denim- a basic denim pair and a black denim. My two favorite denim brands that have lasted me years are Levi and Madewell. You’ll definitely want a pair of faux leather leggings in your wardrobe. They can be dressed up or down and be worn with everything from sneakers to over the knee boots.

When it comes to skirts, I suggest investing in dresses that can double as skirts to get maximum use out of your pieces. This sweater dress can be worn as is or paired with a sweater over top of it to make it look like a skirt. In addition to a good midi dress/skirt option, I always like having a suede mini skirt in my closet for date night or girl’s night out options. My favorite way to pair them is with a sweater and over the knee boots.

ACCESSORIES & SHOES

I’m not a big accessory gal myself so I don’t go overboard here. A wide brim hat and a couple of scarves should do the trick and go with every outfit. My favorite way to pair a plaid blanket scarf is with a striped tee. It’s always a fun way to mix patterns. As for a bag, I usually switch to a tote for the cooler months. I love the quality of this Madewell leather tote.

Now when it comes to Fall/Winter shoes and accessories there are really not many that you need. If you invest in one pair of shoes, it should most definitely be a pair of neutral booties that can go with everything- denim, leggings, skirts and dresses. My favorite pair this season are the Gigietta booties. I own them in two colors! Make sure to size up a half size. After booties, the other two pairs of shoes I would say are must haves is a pair of knee high boots and a statement pair of flats. I’m loving this snakeskin pair and love wearing them with solids and stripes for a little pattern play.

And if you are looking for style inspiration or a few different ways to wear these pieces, see below! I’d love to hear your feedback on my first capsule wardrobe! Can you see yourself wearing these pieces? Which were your favorites? Least favorites? Let me know if you’d want to see one for the Spring/Summer!

Mother’s Day Gift Idea + Garmin Smart Watch Review

Mother's Day Garmin Smart Watch Review

Last month at the RewardStyle Conference, I had the opportunity to meet with the Garmin team and learn all about their smart watch, the vívomove® HR. I instantly fell in love with it’s chic look and had to have my own. Since getting mine, Mama Adams has oohed and ahhed over it every time that I went home so when the time came, I knew exactly what to get her for Mother’s Day. I let her open her gift a little early this year so that she could be in these pictures with me and I’d say her face says it all of how excited she was to receive her own.

While Mama Adams has had a smart watch before this one, I have personally held off getting a smart watch up until now because frankly they just weren’t cute enough. With being in front of the camera 24/7 I didn’t want to invest in something that wouldn’t look good with every outfit. The whole point of a smart watch is to wear it all day, everyday to track your life so finding a watch that would look with everything from pjs to business casual was a must have. The biggest selling factor for me with the Garmin vívomove® HR is that it at first glance it looks just like a normal, fashionable watch but when instructed to “come to life”, the smart watch display transforms to give you all of the smart capabilities that it houses.

Garmin vívomove® HR can honestly do it all. Some of it’s features include tracking your steps, calories, distance, heart rate, and stress. Since it is able to connect to your smart phone, it can also alert you of incoming calls, text messages, calendar reminder and even social media notifications. Mama Adams is a pilates and golf lover so she is excited for all of the capabilities revolving around her active lifestyle whereas I was sold on the fact I could still be “connected” without constantly having my phone in my hand. There are so many times I will get a text message while working and then somehow I fall down a black hole of opening Instagram, scrolling my feed, watching stories, and then an hour later I realize I’ve just wasted an hour of my life all because I opened my phone to check a text message!

I could go on and on about all of it’s amazing features but I’ll just leave you with one more. The battery life on these watches is crazy good. They can last up to 5 days! This is almost unheard of with other smart watches and was another reason why Mama Adams made the switch. In fact it’s one of the main reasons that we are already looking into one for my Grandmother as well. Although it is a smart watch, it has been extremely easy to navigate and figure out which is why it would be an excellent gift for all ages.

With Mother’s Day in less than a week, I’m excited to share that Garmin is currently running a $50 off promotion so some of the vívomove® HR smart watches are as low as $150. Mama Adams opted for the Sea Foam with Silver Hardware watch (currently $150) while I have the Rose Gold Stainless Steel Case with Gray Suede Band (currently $299). The hardware and band are fully customizable depending your your lifestyle and preference. They ship in just 1-3 business days so you still have time to pick one up for mom, grandma or any other special lady in your life!
