Love it or Leave it!

It's been so long since we posted a "Love it or Leave it" but we found something that we really wanted to feature. It's new from Benefit Cosmetics and it's called Bling Brow. It's a box of swarovski jewels for the face, body and brows. The box itself is super cute just like all of Benefit's packaging. But to us that's where it ends. This might be really fun if you are a teen though. The model featured looks to be in her teens and it seems like it works for her. We just can't picture ourselves rocking these things.

What Benefit says...
Why we love it!
Bling it on! Light up the room with this sparkling set of Swarovski® crystals. Each set comes with 52 crystals in 2 colors and a pair of mini tweezers. Press the bling onto skin for instant glamour.

How to apply
Peel off black backing sheet. Use tweezers to pick up the self-adhesive crystals then place next to or directly onto brows. Press with finger to secure. Gently pull off crystals to remove. Adhesive on back of crystal is dermatologist tested.

Beauty tip
Bring the bling…a little or a lot.

Tip 1: touch o’ bling. Apply 3 crystals, evenly spaced, along brow bone. Begin under brow arch and finish at end of brow.

Tip 2: big-time bling. Select crystals and press directly onto brow hairs. Follow the shape of brow and place evenly throughout.

Trick 1: For repeat use, apply crystals with a tiny dab of lash glue.

Trick 2: The glitzy tin doubles as a trinket box. Visit a Benefit BrowBar to learn more “BROWtiful” tips and tricks!
Retails: $25.00 USD

Now what do you guys say? Perfect for the upcoming holidays? Or a big ole pass? Let us know in the comments. We are going to pass on these. While our thirteen year old selves are screaming YES, our thirty year old selves are saying NO. Hope you guys have a great weekend!

Save or Splurge?

I recently came across a post from  B Loved Boston blog called Save or Splurge and I wanted to jump in on the fun. Please be sure to go over to Biana's blog and say hi! You'll love her!

You guys know that I'll splurge on cosmetics for sure but what about other things in my life. Below are the categories. If you have a blog, I'd love for you to join in and post and if you don't, please let me know in the comments on what you would Save or Splurge.

1. A cocktail dress to wear to a wedding
2. A glass of wine at a restaurant 
3. A hotel room
4. A haircut
5. Wild name it!

Here goes...

1. SAVE! I tend to say save on this one. I do believe that you can find affordable dresses that work for any type of wedding. I would start looking at LOFT and of course wait for those fabulous 40% or 50% off sales. I don't shop there unless they are running a sale. Sometimes Old Navy has the cutest most simple dresses that you can get and then make your own. Add a statement necklace, some fabulous heels and don't forget the lipstick!

This dress from LOFT is perfect for a fall/winter wedding. It's currently $98 and on sale for 40% off.

2.  SAVE! I love ordering anything that sparkles when out to eat. You guys know that I love the bubbly! I tend to stick in the $7 or $8 per glass range or I go for the cheapest split they have on the menu. GASP! I do love the 'spensive stuff from time to time but lets be honest I also love my $5.99 bottle of Andre from the grocery store! What What!!!

3. SPLURGE! I'm definitely known to spend a little more on hotel rooms. I've always been this way about hotels even in my 20's when I really didn't have the money spend on nicer hotels. A nice and clean hotel with decent amenities is where I want to be. The bathroom and the view usually does me in!  You will never here me say that when I go on vacation that "the room doesn't matter because I don't plan to be inside much". The room always matters! The upside is that nowadays you can book through so many different travel sites that you can save on nicer hotels. I always go through EBATES when I book hotels (using, Expedia, Travelocity and many more) so that I can get some really good money back in my pocket! It's like double savings when using EBATES!

Dreams Puerto Vallarta (where I got married). The hotel has closed and is changing owners but the rooms were fabulous!

4. SPLURGE! I must first admit that I have had one really terrible haircut/coloring at a "nicer" salon here in town. One that I couldn't believe I actually paid for. However I do truly believe that I get what I'm looking for by spending a little more. I have the cutest stylist right now and her prices are really reasonable compared to what I've spent in the past. I look at getting my hair done as relaxing time for me. It's a way for us girls to take a couple of hours just for ourselves and let someone else make us look and feel beautiful.

Just loving this look! Might have to try this next spring/summer!

5. I've chosen to talk about swimsuits as my WILD CARD option. I say SPLURGE on this one. Now let me explain. I have a shape that requires a little more out of my bathing suits than what I get at Target (and I have gotten suits from Target many times before). For my body the cuts offered on the more expensive ones just work better and I also find that the fabric tends to have the perfect amount of stretch and lift without digging in. I do spend more on my bathing suits and I take care of them so that they last for years. And when I say splurge I don't mean that I'm spending hundreds on each. My last few bathing suits came from Dillard's and were Kenneth Cole. I think I paid about $80-$90 or so for each suit (I believe they tend to mark down their bathing suits after July 4th). If you don't mind spending a little more, I do think La Blanca bathing suits are worth the money too!

It's a bit hard to find swimsuit options this time of year but I did see this one currently available at Macy's.
Also available in Black

I hope that you guys enjoyed this post as much as I enjoyed putting it together. I'd love to know your answers. 
Do your save or splurge?

Hope you guys have a fabulous Friday!! The weekend is here!! Can I get an AMEN?
