Allure Beauty Box

Allure Beauty Box

I have had a subscription to the Allure Beauty Box for about six months. Each month, I eagerly anticipate the arrival of my Beauty Box and I’m filled with wonderment about what it’s going to contain!  Each item is hand-selected from the editors of Allure Magazine.  From eye creams to face washes, exfoliates and all kind of makeup, it’s like Christmas every month.  The gift is perfect for the beauty conscious woman on your Christmas list.

$15/month subscription (you may offer to pay for the first 3-6 months and then have the recipient take over the subscription if she enjoys the Beauty Box!)


Big, Bold Stripes Are Here Harper's Bazaar Reports on Spring's Hottest Trend


According to Harper’s Bazaar’s February 2016 issue, big and bold stripes are all the rage this spring.  I have compiled this collage with bold stripes with everything from pants to ponchos and caftans to shoes and bags.  Obviously, you would not want to blend too much of a striped pattern so you would want to pair these pieces with plenty of neutrals.

My favorite piece from this collage is the Carolina Rose Crossing Striped Turtleneck Caften (#8).  I think it is the most colorful piece and, therefore, the most versatile.  I also love the colors!  They are bright and cheery just like spring.
