Aztec Sweater Love- Stitch Fix #9 Review

I have been thinking more about where I want my blog to go, and I would love to share more of my love for clothing and fashion on here. It is a little difficult at times to do that though, dealing with time or lack thereof,  my full time office job. and more so getting the pictures I would like to share on here.  I really just wish I could have a photographer to call my own, haha. I think the hardest part not finding the time to take the pictures so much, but getting quality pictures to share. Well with a mix of my subscription reviews, and with me wanting to share more my love for clothing, here is my latest Stitch Fix that I received a couple weeks ago. 

What is Stitch Fix?
Stitch Fix is a personal styling service. Stitch Fix gets your style and size preferences, then send you a package of stylish goodies to try on at home. And No two Fix shipments are alike. Each one is hand–picked just for you. It costs $20 per month, and this $20 can be used towards the purchase of any of the items Stitch Fix adds to your box.

Stitch Fix #9
If you have read any of my other posts I actually skipped Stitch Fix #8. I got that one back in December, and it just was so busy that I ended up not having time to share on here. However, I did not want to miss in showing you my fix for this month, because it included one my favorites.

Ark n Co Gunther Asymetrical Stripe Fit & Flare Dress  $88
I really loved the black and white pattern of this dress, and style wise it was just right. However, it just was a little too short for my taste. And, I just got a dress exactly like this a couple weeks before online for just $10. So, as you can tell I saved myself a couple dollars.

Daniel Rainn Palermo Pleat Detail Button-Up Blouse $78
This was a great black blouse, but it looks like shirts I already have. While, I really do not think I can have enough black blouses, I just did not want to spend $78 on another one. Unfortunately, I usually tend to spend a little less on shirts. Yes, I try my hardest to be frugal.

Papermoon Jillian Jaquard Fit & Flare Skirt $48
I thought I would really like this skirt, and it was made of the softest material. However, after putting in on, I just did not like how I looked in it. Bummer cause it really was very cute.

Moon Collection Alexander Aztec Knit Drape Front Cardigan $68
Okay this was my favorite out of any Stitch Fixes that I have received thus far.  I think because I have been asking Stitch Fix to include an Aztec Sweater for awhile now. So, I was super excited when there finally was one in my Stitch Fix.  Even though I tend to not spend as much on sweaters, I had to keep this one. Cannot let my $20 credit go to waste.

41 Hawthorn Rowson Colorblock Striped Sweater $58 

After reviewing other blogger’s reviews of their Stitch Fix, 41 Hawthorn is one of the popular brands for Stitch Fix. I do not get many 41 Hawthorn shirts in my fixes. However, this sweater was pretty cute, and loved how it looked on.  But, even though I really liked this sweater, I could not justify spending lots on sweaters for myself this month, so it went back.


Overall, my Stitch Fix #9 was great because I got my Aztec Sweater. I really think that Stitch Fix is a great and convenient way to get stylish clothing for a reasonable price. Yes, some clothing pieces are more costly than I like, but the convenience out ways the price. What I really love about Stitch Fix, is that you are not obligated to keep anything, and likewise you can keep it all if you want, and you get a 25% off discount if you keep it all. It is easy as Pie! I never can not use my $20 styling credit, so I at least keep one item. This time around I kept the Moon Collection Alexander Aztec Sweater, of course! The added plus of Stitch Fix is that after you checkout, you can schedule another Stitch Fix right away, or you can pick another date to have your Stitch Fix delivered. It is the most convenient way to shop. I cannot wait for my next Fix!

Sample Society January 2014 Review

Well Sample Society is usually one of the first subscription boxes that I review each month, but it seems that I am a little far behind for January. Needless to say, Sample Society is one of my favorite beauty boxes. Yes, I probably say that they are all my favorite, and I think may they all are. But, I really do think that Sample Society, as one of my first beauty boxes that I ever received really won my beauty side over from the very beginning. 

What is Sample Society?
For those who do not know what Sample Society is, this a beauty subscription that sends out beauty samples each month. Sample Society is through Beauty Bar and teamed up with Allure. The monthly cost is $15. 


For January 2014, Sample Society brought some of the best for 2014.

StriVectin SD Eye Concentrate 

This won the Allure Best of Beauty Winner. I really have wanted to try a couple of the StriVectin products for awhile now, I was super excited to see this in January's Sample Society Box. I can only hope that the product is as good as it says it is. This eye concentrate is said to help with lines, puffiness and dark circles, everything that I need in an eye cream!

StriVectin Instant Retexturizing Scrub

Not just one StriVectin products, but two this month! I can always use some nice shower scrub. 

Malin & Goetz Vitamin E Face Moisturizer

I really love anything with Vitamin E, it really helps even out skin tone as well as hydrates. I have heard really good things about Malin & Goetz, and this moisturizer proves what great products they have; the moisturizer works fantastic!

Nicole Richie Perfume Sample

I am not the biggest fan of getting perfume in any box. I am pretty picky when it comes to smells. However, this Nicole Richie perfume is not that bad at all. I would probably not buy it on my own, but I am sure for a special occasion I would think about taking it out. 

Butter London Horse Power Nail Fertilizer 

I was the most excited about this in January's Sample Society. I really can appreciate a nail product that is not polish in a beauty box, and it is full size, even better. This nail fertilizer is made to help strengthen nails. I can use all the strength a nail product can give me, my nails are like paper.


I did not do a cost by item overview for this box, but the Butter London Horse Power itself was $20, and full size, so the box was definitely worth every penny, especially since Sample Society only costs $15 per month. For January there was way more than $15 worth of products, and I could not be more excited about the start of 2014 for Sample Society. I plan on being a loyal subscriber for months to come.

High Five for Friday- Green and Blue Edition

Wow, January has flown by so quickly. I am super excited to share my High Five for Friday this week. I am linking up with Lauren over at the Lauren Elizabeth Blog. You can check her our HERE.

And here are my High Five for Friday:

1) Now that we are living out in the country , I just love being able to wake up and see a beautiful view of Mt. Rainier. This was not the best day to view Mt. Rainier, but still a sight.

2)Okay, if you follow me on Instagram or Twitter, or  read any of my other of my posts on here, you probably know already that I am really a loyal fan of the Seattle Seahawks. And, I am beyond super- excited about Seahawks going to the Superbowl!! I have loved football since I was a little girl, and it is super exciting to see our home team going on to the big game on February 2nd. My brother is actually going to the game in NewYork/NewJersey, and I am sure he is going to have a blast!

3) And speaking of loving football and anything to do with the Seahawks lately, I have a ritual that I have to have blue and green nails for game day.

4) I am sure you can see a pattern here of Seahawks this week, haha. Yes, we are excited. Our little one is becoming a big “Green and Blue” fan as well. She shouts and cheers them on for game days and non-game days.  Her and Daddy tackle each other during games cheering “Go Russell Wilson!” and “Beast Mode!” It really is the cutest. This is her Seahawks picture she drew to support them at their last game!

5) Speaking of our little one, here she is in her little fort that we built between two of our couches with her new tablet. It amazes me that young toddlers these days pick up technology like it is embedded into them before birth! Haha.

How was your week? Would love to hear all about it, or if you want to share your High Five for Friday you can HERE. 

Until next time

First Glossybox for 2014- January Glossybox Review

It is always a good day when Glossybox arrives. I thought I would share the first box in 2014 right away, as I really was excited about some of the items.

What is Glossybox?
Glossybox is a beauty subscription that sends out premium beauty samples to members each month. The cost is $21 per month.

January Glossybox
 For the first box of 2014, Glossybox wanted to share some Great products to start the new year off right.

Balance Me Super Toning Body Wash  $7 for 1.7 FL OZ
This body wash smells fantastic, and is tone enhancing. If tone enhasing means I will get better skin quality, then count me in as a fan of this body wash.

The Original Beautyblender and Cleaner $19.95 Retail ($1.50 for cleaner)
I was so excited to see that I was going to be, finally, getting a Beautyblender. I know that my other beauty subscriptions have had them included in their boxes, but I have never been the lucky one to actually get one yet. I hope this Beautyblender lives up to all the hype. Cannot wait to try it out.

Bella’pierre Cosmetics Mineral Blush $20
I used to wear mineral makeup all the time, but have swayed away from it as I find new brands I like better.  Blush is always a great addition to any box, and I was getting low on my current blush, and this is a perfect color for me.

Tony & Guy Hair Meet Wardrobe Casual Sea Salt Texturising Spray $5.50 2.5 FL OZ

I have become a huge fan of sea salt texturizing sprays, so I was excited to see Tony & Guy in my January Glossybox. I have received this spray in another beauty box, and can tell you this spray is fantastic. Sea Salt sprays are great to add that extra something to clean hair to make it better for styling.

Vichy Aqualia Thermal Rich Cream $9 .5 FL OZ 

This cream from Vichy is said to help with dry skin.  I tried a little on my hand and it felt fantastic. I do not get dry skin too often on my face, but I am sure when I do this will be a great option.


Overall, I am very pleased with the January 2014 Glossybox.  Glossybox never really disappoints ever. I tend to lean more towards the Limited Edition boxes, but this box was still fantastic. I think what made me even more impressed was that it included a Beautyblender. I am so excited about that. For the monthly cost of $21 per month, January’s Glossybox included approximately $63 worth of beauty products. Yes indeed Glossybox is worth every penny. I would expect nothing less from Glossybox, as they always curate high quality and value boxes each month.

January Mystery Golden Tote Review

A couple weeks ago I posted about Golden Tote and their Mystery January Tote, which I was super excited for. Well, it came last week, and I am excited to share what I received. It all comes in a cute tote as well, which is golden!

What is Golden Tote Mystery Tote?
Golden Tote does a once a year' Mystery Tote which is reminiscent of the Japanese tradition, Fukubukuro, where store owners once a year curate mystery grab bags of merchandise of the year at an incredible deal. The tote contains FOUR surprise items, including one Puella dress from previous seasons, at least one item found in a previous $149 tote and two other items, which could be chosen items or surprise items from previous totes. The Mystery tote has a value of up to $300 for the cost of$50, and took the place of the regular January selection.

Mystery Tote

Endless Rose Tribal Vegan Vest - $52 Retail
This vest is cute, looks super cozy and soft on the inside, and very well made. However, it just is not my style. I definitely would have never picked this out for myself. It was a miss, but already is on its way to its new home today.  

Lumiere Black and Cream Striped Sweater $47 Retail
I really love this sweater, and was hoping for a nice heavy chunky boyfriend type sweater in my tote. Lucky me I got one that I really like. I already have worn this to work.

Puella Grey Striped Maxi Dress $88 Retail Price
Golden Tote assured everyone that at least one item would be Puella. I really have loved every other Puella item that I have received in previous totes, and I actually got this maxi dress in black. So, when I got this maxi dress in grey I was super pumped. A great addition to my Mystery Tote.

Cefian Black/Gray Long Sleeve Thumb Hole Shirt $30?

I saw that other people had received this Cefian Shirt in Navy, yet I have not seen it in black. However, I love black shirts, so I was super excited to see that the shirt I got was black. I actually did a triple take on the shirt to make sure I was not mistaking it for black, when it really was navy. But, no, it is black.


Overall, I really love this month’s Mystery Golden Tote. Out of 4 items I love 3 of them, and think it was a great mix of items for me. I have been looking around online and have seen other mystery totes that I envy, but I do not mind mine at all. Also, for the cost of the Mystery Golden Tote, which was $50, plus tax, I received a total of approximately $217 worth of fantastic clothing. Golden Tote did say it would be around $300 worth of clothing, but I am sure Golden Tote prices some of the pieces higher.  In the end, I would definitely say the Mystery Golden Tote for January was worth every penny.  

What did you think of the January’s Mystery Golden Tote? If you are interested in learning more and signing up for February’s Golden Tote, you can HERE. Please note that February selection will be revealed early February, so stay tuned.

Until next time

Fab Kids- With Love Collection Review and Subscription Update

A busy day on the blog today, but I have so much to share today and I just cannot stop. One subscription that I really like is Fab Kids. I have tried all the Fab subscriptions; Just Fab, Fab Kids and Fabletics, but Fab Kids is my favorite. And along with my recent outfit we were graciously offered from Fab Kids to review, I also want to review the recent changes from Fab Kids.

What is Fab Kids? And Subscription Update
Fab Kids, which is affiliated with Just Fab, is a company started by a couple of mothers, and Christina Applegate (movie star), and founded to let girls,  and now boys, express their individuality through fashion, while allowing parents to get high end clothing at reasonable prices. After taking the style quiz, Fab Kids then picks out clothing perfect for your little one. You can pick and choose what you would like. Every outfit comes with two pieces now (used to be three, but the third item was usually just a headband or hair accessory), and the cost used to be $39.95, but is now $29.95. You are not obligated to pick a set each month, and can skip if you choose as well.  Right now they have a great offer of buy 1 outfit and get 1 free, two great outfits for only $29.95!

With Love Collection

I say this about all Fab Kids collections, but it was so hard to pick one outfit from this month’s With Love Collection. All the outfits were just so cute.  However, we decided to pick the:

Wild Color Block Outfit
I love color block, and I especially love color block for our little one.

Colorblock Dress $34 Retail Price
I love this dress, and it is perfect to wear on its own, with leggings or tights. The bright colors are great, and perfect to show off our little ones bright, and on the wild side, personality . This dress is very well made, with a very sturdy zipper on the black and can be machine washed!

Zebra Legging $16 Retail Price
I picked this outfit out because I really loved the zebra leggings, and we do not have any zebra leggings yet. The only thing about these leggings is that I thought they would be thicker like past leggings I have received from Fab Kids, but they seemed a little light. What I found is that these leggings are made of rayon, where as the other leggings are made of cotton. That would explain it. I would most definitely only put our little one in these during warmer days. However,  I still think they are super cute, and they would good with so many other tops and dresses that we have!

Other With Love 
Collection Top Pick

Animal Ruffle Outfit

This outfit was not available when I picked my outfit, and just came out. But, I think this is so cute, and would have been my top pick.


Another fantastic collection from Fab Kids. I have been so impressed by each and every outfit that we have received from Fab Kids, and all outfits stand up really well with how rough our little one is on her clothing and how much we wash them. For $29.95, I would highly recommend Fab Kids for kids clothing needs. Not only are the outfits made well, but they are just so cute! The only problem now is not picking out too many outfits for our little one.

What did you think of the January’s With Love Fab Kids Collection ? If you are interested in learning more or signing up for Fab Kids, you can HERE.  And Right now they have a great offer of buy 1 outfit and get 1 free, two great outfits for only $29.95!
