2015 Agendas: 4 Chic (and Highly Recommended) Day Planners

I'm a total digital girl, I have now converted to reading my books and magazines all on my iPad and I track all my events on my Google Calendar.  But there is something about smaller tasks and call/meetings throughout the day that I won't remember unless I write them down.  I haven't used a day planner since I was in college but decided that I needed one to keep me organized.

A modern dog toy: support my brother's kickstarter!

I wanted to proudly share my brother and his girlfriend's kickstarter project!  They created a puzzle dog toy called The Odin (named after their adorable corgi) to fill the need for a toy that was durable, fun and also beautiful. The Odin gives dogs the mental and physical stimulation they need, while looking great in your home.


Here's a video so you can find out more about the toy and how the created it:


The dog toy is not yet in production as they are looking for support through their kickstarter.  There are a limited amount of Early Backer discounts, so if you love the toy, make sure to get in early to save. They would love your help to kickstart their business and help them with their mission to make happy dogs and happy homes.

Pur Minerals Compact Foundation Review

I envy those girls with great skin and that needs very little to cover up imperfections or blemishes.  I am not one of those people and I greatly appreciate my foundation and powders to cover up all my freckles and spots that I have.  I am all about trying new things and of course when I find something that I love, I have to share.

I recently started using the Pur Minerals Air Perfection Compact Foundation. Instead of the typical foundation in a jar or tube, it comes in a compact which I love.  It's so much less messy and instead of using your fingers or another brush, it comes with an applicator sponge that goes on the skin really nicely and does an excellent job of blending.  The coverage is actually fantastic.  I find that I don't have to use concealer on some of my regular spots.  Also love that it's easy to travel with so I can put it in my purse and not have to worry about anything leaking or spilling.

The compact has a dual lid and the sponge sits on top but also helps keep the foundation from drying out.  It's very lightweight and the coverage sets to a bit more of a matte finish. I think it's a great foundation for the winter when you want more coverage and something that is a bit more moisturizing.  Definitely recommend it if you are looking for a new foundation to try!

Outfit Styling for Fall (and everything is on sale!)

On most days I love standing in my closet and figuring out what to wear but I like to also give myself some inspiration to work off of and even create a "uniform" of sorts to save me time.  I'm all about these outfits lately and wanted to share that everything below is on sale at Shopbop's friends and family sale!  Take 25% off with code FAMILY25.

I'm a fan of the faux leather jackets.  Not only do I feel like faux leather is getting better and better but the price of it is SO much cheaper than actual leather.  I love this simple outfit with a leather jacket, plaid shirt, slim black jeans and booties.  I tend to always add a pop of color to my outfit and the red mini bag is just the perfect accent.
