The DL on Lancôme's Cult Classics

* Thank you so much for the box of Lancôme goodies, Rakuten Affiliate Network! Affiliate links used. #RANBonusBox

I am so utterly excited to share with you all this sweet little goodie box from Rakuten Affiliate Network I received. Every once in awhile, RAN sends out a boxes filled with products to a few select bloggers that use their network (I use them for affiliate links) and I was one of the lucky ones to receive this one for Lancôme! I wanted to disclose this because well, duh, of course but also because I know I talk a lot about deals and whatnot and truth be told, there is no way I'd be able to afford Lancôme.

Because Lancôme is at a higher price point than many (if not most) of the products I talk about on the blog, I wanted to use this opportunity to share with you which products of the bunch are totally worth the splurge and which ones you can pass on!

Why You Need The Stila With Flying Colors Stay All Day Liquid Lipstick Set

* Affiliate links used.

Happy New Year everyone! A few weeks ago, Sephora was having their Holiday Sale, where you could get $15 off $75. Naturally, I grabbed my little gift cards and put in an order! I'm already a huge fan of Stila Stay All Day Liquid Lipsticks but when I saw the Stila With Flying Colors Stay All Day Liquid Lipstick Set (ON SALE - $27) with colors I didn't already have, it was kind of a no brainer to grab them. Anyone else a fan of minis? I love them because I very rarely wear the same color over and over again so it kinda works for me!

Glitzy Holiday Makeup

In case the thousands of other bloggers you follow didn't tell you - there's only seven days left until Christmas! Can you believe it?!

We normally host Christmas Eve but this year we weren't going to and now were are again (oy!) so while I'm planning on dressing pretty comfy to run around in, I'll probably throw on some fun but simple glitzy makeup to celebrate!

Talk about feeling so incredibly honored! Barbershops, salons, students and alumni from all over Connecticut are invited to compete in The Hair Show where they are judged on their creativity through their hair, makeup, outfits and performance.

Pajamas + Pages: Christmas Edition

* Affiliate links used.

Hey babes! It seems like I do a post all about new jammies and books for almost every holiday so let's continue, shall we? Jammies and books go with Christmas like PB&J, duh, but I feel like they're even more special around this time for a few reasons.

For one, they usually make an appearance in our Christmas cards! Secondly, the boys specifically ask for their Christmas jammies for Christmas Eve (and quite a few times before) because it gets them super excited for the holiday. Maybe we're just weird. That's also possible.

Four Ways To Keep Your Blonde Hair Healthy w/ Biotera Natural Origins

Where are my blondes at?! I had no clue how hard it was to keep my blonde actually blonde until I took the plunge and caught onto the Blonde Train. While I had virgin hair and it took two sessions to get to my blonde, I'm not naive to know that going blonde and staying blonde (through toning) can be hard on your hair. The bleaching process is more damaging and delicate than any other color.

While you should always get professional advice from a licensed hair stylist, here's a few easy tips with Biotera Natural Origins on how to add strength, softness and health back to your hair in between toning!
