  • RocksBox Jewelry | July 2014

    The month of July has been a super busy one, but I started another subscription box service just for jewelry called RocksBox! This was my first month and I absolutely loved it. My stylist curated a box based on my personal style and I was extremely excited to see some of the pieces I've been dying to wear! Even though you can exchange your RocksBox as many times a month as you'd like, I actually kept mine because I grew so attached.

    My stylist sent the House of Harlow Five Station necklace in black that I've been eyeballing for years and styled my box around that piece. She included this super cute Margaret Elizabeth ring that was a little big, but I switched it up and wore it on my pointer finger. The best deal in the entire box was the Urban Gem bracelet set -- there's another brand similar that sells the almost exact bracelets individually for the price of the entire set! 

    Since I loved RocksBox so much, I'm going to go ahead and exchange my box for another one this month and do an unboxing on my YouTube channel for August. I'm still contemplating the House of Harlow necklace because I loved it so much, but for only $20 a month you get three pieces of designer jewelry and you only pay for what you keep -- so it's worth it! 

    Check out RocksBox for yourself!

  • Christian Louboutin Beauté | $50 Nail Polish?

    I was scrolling through Twitter the other day when I came across Nordstrom's Vine account and saw this cute little snippet. I think my heart pretty much skipped a beat when I saw that Christian Louboutin would actually be releasing his first nail lacquer in less than two weeks! As soon as I read that it was available for pre-order, I immediately clicked my bookmarked Nordstrom tab and searched for it.

    As I waited for the page to load, I quickly guess-timated how much the polish would cost. Maybe $30? $40? Nope. My eyes widened a bit when I saw the $50.00 pricing in the description. After I collected my thoughts and had a moment to think about it, I realized that the price really isn't that bad. I mean, it's Christian Louboutin -- a high-end shoe designer. It's just expected. I'm honestly surprised that it doesn't cost more! Beauty and accessory line prices of high-end designers usually reflect the brand, but are more affordable so people can own a piece from the designer.

    The molded glass bottle is inspired by 18th century European architecture and the unique top inspired by the Ballerina Ultima heel, the tallest heel designed by Christian Louboutin, extends nearly eight inches. There's even a famous story behind the Rouge Louboutin lacquer. Once upon a time, Louboutin was unsatisfied with the original red soles in the sketches and grabbed an employee's red nail polish and illustrated the world reknown glossy red soles. Of course the packaging would be fabulous and meticulously designed, but what about the actual product?

    I'll admit that the packaging is gorgeous and that's one of the reasons why I don't mind spending more for the polish. It'd be a great addition to my collection of designer pieces in my new apartment like an art piece.



    I'm mostly excited about the triangle application brush. I've been extremely picky when it comes to nail polish brushes -- either they're too thin leaving a streaky finish or so wide that you end up with an unnecessary glob of lacquer on your nail. I've actually dreamt of a brush shaped like this one, so I really want to see if it will give a more flawless application. 

    The lacquer is currently available at select retailers, but is currently available to pre-order at Nordstrom and will be available to purchase directly on August 14th. Christian Louboutin Beauté is said to be releasing 22 more shades in late August. 

    Do you think Christian Louboutin nail polish is worth $50? I'll be pre-ordering and doing a full review soon after mine arrives!

  • Outfit of the Day | House of Harlow + Katydid Collection

    Outfit of the Day | House of Harlow + Katydid Collection

    It's been a while, but I'm back! Things are finally slowing down a bit, so I can focus a little more on blogging and sharing things with you! Today, I sealed the deal on my new apartment and took care of some other things that I'm excited to announce soon.

    My goal was to look casual chic, so I decided to pair some vibrant florals from the super popular Katydid Collection with the House of Harlow necklace I got in my RocksBox this month. I'm also sporting my new heels from Target that I never thought I'd receive so many compliments on...and they were on sale!

  • 7.10.14 | Where is The Fashion Geek?

    I had a complete month to relax from a very successful Spring semester and now my busy schedule is back in full force. I've started working again for the summer at Nordstrom and I'm juggling two very important online courses, so I haven't posted very often since the beginning of July. I'm slowly but surely working on some new beauty reviews, collaborations, lookbooks, and outfits of the day posts in between my crazy schedule...but they're coming and you're going to love them!
