Today is a beautiful ice day here in Dallas. The temps changed over 50 degrees this week- just craziness I tell you... I thought I would share a couple of my recent beauty purchases that I am now obsessed with.

If you follow me on Instagram you know that I am a hoarder of many things- especially curling irons, flat irons and hair dryers. Well my friends those days are over. I recently purchased a Babylis hair dryer and my hair is forever grateful. My thick, fine, curly hair is now smooth and shiny and the ends aren't splitting with every use. Worth. Every. Penny.

 Yesterday I went to the dermatologist (my favorite doctor to visit!) because my Rosacea has been really bothering me. She recommended I use Cerave moisturizer and I have to tell you in 24 hours my skin feels almost 100% healed. Miracle worker in a tub for $18.

 One last product that I am now also hooked onto is Blinc Mascara. I LOVE this product for everyday use- it doesn't coat your lashes like regular mascara- it tubes them and is SUPER easy to remove. Now it doesn't give you lashes that look fake but it gives plenty of coverage for everyday use and when you wash your face at night the tubes just wash away so no dark eye circle.

Bella Ink Holiday

What is there not to love about these invitations for holiday parties from Bella Ink?! I always love Bella Ink's designs but I especially love her Holiday release this year. I am a big fan of how she mixes whimsy with a bit of sass- it truly makes her designs her own. I love how they got on board with the chalk board designs that have been everywhere this season but still kept the designs looking timeless.  I feel like these invites are for the kind of party I want to go to!

Sugar Paper

Sometime I feel like I could write a blogpost everyday about my love for a Sugar Paper item and I would be happy. Seriously I love everything they do and their Holiday collection does not differ. This year they introduced amazing photo cards. I love these cards and they are sure to be sell outs- they beat anything you can do online. I love the classic stripes and polka dots (who doesn't love a foiled dot!) and the envelopes all come lined and the cards are greeted! If photo cards are your thing I am sure your family, kids, grandkids, or dogs would look great on any of these cards!

Rifle Paper Holiday

Let's keep the Holiday theme rolling around here and onto Rifle Paper Co.'s amazing collection for the Holidays. I am pretty sure there is nothing Rifle Paper does that everyone doesn't love. This is one of my favorite lines that I sell because not only do I always love it but my stores always get excited to see what is coming next from Mrs. Bond. I am pretty obsessed with their plaid wrap this year and if I HAD to pick a favorite card it would probably be the colorblock Be Merry and Bright card. I also love the Holiday Snow Scene postcard (great for anyone who spends their Holiday in the mountain skiing!) and The stickers are the best that I have seen out there for easy gift tags! Really you can never go wrong with anything from Rifle.

Mr. Boddington's Studio

Wow- October is over?! How did that happen?! October was very busy for me- if you follow me on instagram you may have seen that I traveled back-to-back weekends to New York City and then home to Atlanta. The next week Matt and I closed on our first house and so now we in a full on purging and packing mode. I have been doing a lot of shopping for the new house and I have loved loved loved all the holiday decor being out in the stores. Also the temps have dropped here in Dallas (only in the 60's during the day this week!) and so it really feels like we moving into the Holiday season. I thought I would share today one of my favorite designer for stationery and cards- Mr. Boddington's Studio. What I love so much about Mr. Boddington's is that doesn't take itself too seriously. I love all the hand illustrations and the quality is amazing. If you have some down time take a look at some of their custom wedding invites- seriously to die for. I have sent their Holiday cards before and I may or may not be using Mr. Boddington's Nephew for my moving announcement *hint hint wink wink* I love how their Holiday cards use so much color and the look is always their own. I'll try and share a couple more card designers I love this week and next!

Kate Spade New York

I am not good at keeping secrets. Anyone who even kind of knows me knows that you should never tell me anything that is not shareable (and if you don't know me you have been warned for when we do become friends, ha!) I have known a pretty big secret most of the year and with that being said, we found out at the beginning of the year that we would have a BIG addition to our line packages this spring with the release of Kate Spade stationery and gift. Now I feel like Kate and I have been friends for a long time- I own a black nylon bags, wallets, moved into black and white stripes with her and really feel like this is a brand I identify with season after season. This week the collection is going to be hitting the stores and it is really awesome to get to see how excited everyone is for it! All of the collection is actually pretty affordable and I think brings a big bang with it's price point.

What I wore Wednesday

With it almost being fall here in Dallas I thought I would share my favorite purchase so far for the season.I first saw these boots on Pinterest and I fell in love. I have a tough time with boots because I have a high instep and I have to have boots with a zipper because I can't step into boots (totally weird and such a life burden, I know.) These are perfect to wear with a flowy dress and also great with skinny jeans.  I love the cut out detail in the back since there are such few really cold days in Dallas so it is nice to have the extra air flow.
