Disclaimer: I am in no way sponsoring Sephora, Too Faced, Godiva, or Baublebar. I am simply recounting the event for your enjoyment.
Hello Spice Girls & Guys! It’s been a busy and hectic week for me as I’ve been interning, running around the city in 97+ degree weather and planning outfits for events left and right. I received an email from Sephora as all VIBs (Very Important Beauty Insiders) do and it was for an event happening on July 18th. I rushed to the phone and reserved my spot for my cousin and I.
The weather yesterday was brutal with real feel temperatures of 100+. So needless to say, I am looking less than cute with sweat pouring down my face and my chunky arms out for the world to see. It’s ok though, I survived.
I was never much of a necklace girl when I was younger but as my love of fashion grew, so did my love of accessories. Well, more than love..more like an obsession.
Collared shirts have also become a basic for me in a way, particularly the sleeveless, flow-y, and roomy ones. I love to add a necklace underneath the collar to add a little interest and pop. It’s a great way to dress up an outfit. I made some outfit sets for an example. There are a variety of colors, finishes, and embellishments on the necklaces which can turn your everyday bland shirt into a wonderful outfit, especially when the weather warms up!
They are all very affordable and very cute! There is a style for everyone!
I must admit it– I am a shopaholic. I don’t know what it is..I think it is the excitement of having new to add to your collection that makes it so intoxicating.
I decided to get more jewelry because you know you can never have too much jewelry. Spring is fast approaching so I wanted to get more color. I don’t really have many accessories because I feel like my style is shifting.
|Special Occasion Pearls, $15.|
|Small Bubbles Set, $13|
|Band with Key Lock Ring,$6|
|Enamel Flower, $8|
|Single Rolo Strand, $27|
This is my haul. I did purchase a cute earring set with bows, flowers, and the Eiffel Tower BUT with my lock I lost one of the flower earrings at school :(.
I thought the pearls would be a great necklace to have. It is a classic staple and you could wear it up or down. It will add a sophisticated touch to any outfit. The Bubble Set is a peach color and I recently wore it with a V-Neck Puff sleeved Striped shirt. It made my outfit look very dressy despite it not being ceramic. I even saw a similar necklace at J Crew for 3 times the price!
The ring is adorable. I love how it has a little key hanging from it. It’s a perfect thing to wear on Valentine’s day. It’s tiny and you could stack other rings on top of it.
I just love color and why not orange? The earrings will be a great way to incorporate color into my outfit subtly. I like adding color in the form of accessories and not having to wear a neon green shirt to get my point across.
That’s all for my Charming Charlie haul now onto BaubleBar.
I only purchased one item from BaubleBar but it’s amazing quality and it’s a staple I think I will come to wear a lot. I fell in love with BaubleBar while interning for Quincy. I believe they partnered up once so that was exciting.
This gold necklace can be worn as a collar as well. When it arrived in the mail, it was in the cutest green and blue box. I opened the box to find this adorable little pouch, when I picked it up I was surprised at how heavy the necklace was. It’s very, VERY heavy; just the thought of it makes my neck ache a little but I won’t let that stop me from wearing it!
I most definetly recommend BaubleBar. They have amazing jewelry at amazing quality. They also have something called The Vault. They are points you can use to deduct a few dollars from your total. I think I will have to keep my eye on my bank account as I am very tempted to purchase a bracelet from them!
