The Beauty Sample Box You Have To Try

You know the little “gift-with-purchase” sample bags that sometimes get when you spend X amount of money at department stores? The Tili (“Try It; Love It”) box is sort of like those…except better in virtually ever way. I did not expect this to be as good as it is – and certainly not for $22 (plus $3 shipping, but still: !!!). The only explanation for the price of the Tili box is that QVC is so confident that new customers are going to love the products that they’re willing to offer a confusingly great bargain as an introduction.

Want $5 off your first purchase at QVC (including the Tili box)? Use code FIVE4U at checkout.


Me, In The Mirror

Jacket (similar) | Women's March Tee | Joggers

I've said it over and over, but love Instagram Stories. I love that I seriously do not care what my bedroom looks like behind me (ok mayyyyyybe I sometimes frame out things like, say, an uncomfortably enormous pile of dirty laundry or a glass of wine left over from the night before so no one thinks I'm drinking wine at 8:30 in the morning while living in a hovel, but still).

I love that I get to post the kinds of outfit shots I used to post way back when I started this whole thing: the ones I took myself in a mirror, because what, like I was going to hire a photographer?! Hahahaha. (Totally hire photographers now.)


Boss Life

For the entirety of my childhood – up through and including my teenage years – I used Avon Skin So Soft Bath Oil. When I was a kid it was just what we had sitting by the tub, but by the time I was a teenager I actively sought it out: It had taken on an air of nostalgic simplicity and made me feel both elegant and a touch retro, even though I wasn’t sure exactly why.

And now I do.
