ebblog mavy savvy crop outfit

The crop top has had a fashion renaissance lately and just because the weather is cool it doesn’t mean we have to ditch some of our warm weather faves. Pairing a crop top with high waisted pants and a chunky sweater is a great way to transition your favorite crop top. Toss in seasonal accessories and a cool pair of boots and you have an edgy, hip outfit for those of us who like to take a fashion risk.

I think it’s safe to assume that most of us ladies love our leggings. I know I do BUT leggings can be comfy and stylish, especially when they give the illusion of being pants and not leggings. Leggings with zippers, pockets, studs, different textures and finishes can be a great way to punch up your fashion sense and maintain comfort. Adding a loose flowy top, a great cardigan and a scarf really brings together a great layered outfit perfect for the fall.

mavy savvy brocade jeans fall 2014

My second favorite wardrobe favorite/staple are skinny jeans. Skinny jeans are a versatile, year round piece that pairs well with both sandals and boots. Punching up your denim looks is as easy as adding denim with texture, finishes and patterns. The star of this outfit are the beyond cute brocade skinnies which will look great with some brown booties or lace up short boots. I also like to pair a neutral top and accessories with a pop of color around the neck with either a scarf or a statement necklace. In tho scase I used this adorable scarf that has the neutral great and a pop of bright, vibrant green. Don’t be afraid of adding brights to your fall/winter outfits. It’s a great to perk up an outfit and get you out of weather related “Bllahs”.

Looking stylish and put together doesn’t have to be a chore, a time sink or cost a ton of money. You can get great, versatile pieces for less at Mavy Savvy that will transition well between all seasons.

Top Beauty Buys for Fall

ebblog fall beauty buys

Can I tell you that I am SO beyond happy that it is finally, officially, undeniably Fall. The leaves have already begun to change colors, the air is getting drier and my beauty routine can finally change. With Fall being a transitional season for fashion and beauty you might need to start stockpiling some favorites/trends for the season now! Shopping for beauty products is so much fun but it’s even better when you have a friend to shop with. While I can’t be there with you physically, load my beauty buys onto you mobile and take me with you as you seek out your own beauty buys for the Fall!

ebblog fall beauty buys 1.) Make Up For Ever Artist Palette $42 Sephora – The Make Up For Ever Artist Palette has replaced my LORAC Pro2 as my current fall favorite. I love the assortment of colors, the shadows themselves are phenomenal and it’s the perfect size for travel. I reviewed this wonderful palette here and the array of shades and finishes are just beyond perfection for the Fall. Grab the Make Up For Ever Artist Palette before it’s gone.

2 & 3.) Shea Moisture Super Fruit Complex 10 in 1 Renewal System Hair Masque and Shampoo $10.99 each Ulta – My hair just L-O-V-E-S this combo from Shea Moisture. I very rarely use a “daily” conditioner and reach for a masque because I heat style my hair all the time so I need the extra moisture and the Shea Moisture Super Fruit Complex 10 in 1 Renewal System Hair Masque definitely meets my moisture needs. The shampoo companion to the masque cleanses very well for a SLS Free shampoo. It’s hydrating but not so much so that it makes my hair greasy quickly. According to the Ulta site, these are exclusive to their store but I could have sworn I saw this line at Target as well.

4.) Anastasia Brow Wiz $21.00 – Brows to me are the most important part of your face and a good brow can just make you look a million times better. Anastasia’s Brow Wiz has been my go to brow product for as long as I have been doing makeup (close to 4 years now). It’s easy to use, you can go natural or super bold and Anastasia Brow Wiz is available in a wide variety of shades. To stick with Fall trends you can buy two shades and rock the “ombre” brow.

5.)  NYX Matte Lip Cream in Copenhagen $6.00 – Wines/Berries are once again hot for the Fall and the NYX Soft Matte Lip Cream in Copenhagen is your best bet for a beauty bargain that will actually perform well, not kill your lips and look great on a variety of skin tones.

6.) Lancome Nutrix Royale Body $30 – I am not usually one to go bonkers for high end body lotions BUT I got a sample of this as a Lancome gift with purchase and I fell in love with it. The scent is fresh and feminine and it cures even my diabetic dragon scales. I don’t think I will ever go without Nutrix Royale Body ever again making it a year round staple for me.

7.) EOS Lip Balm Coconut Milk $4 – EOS has been my go to balm ever since they “rolled” onto the scene a few years ago. I have yet to find anything that hydrates my lips like my trusty EOS balms. I do prefer the “milk” versions as they are a tad bit more moisturizing and perfect for my beyond chapped lips in the Fall. *Pro Tip*  Always apply lip balm in a sheer layer. Slathering your lips with any lip balm can actually contribute to further drying/chapping.

There you have it. My ABSOLUTE must have Fall Beauty Buys. See anything you plan on picking up? If you enjoyed reading my Fall Beauty Buys, check out the other ladies of The Beauty Council and their picks below.

Fall 2014 Beauty Haul

ebblog fall haul 2014

 

The fall is my ABSOLUTE favorite time of year. There is nothing I dislike about the fall except maybe the rain but whatevs. I’ve been on a bit of a spending spree as of late so I figured I would share my beauty related purchases with everyone. I do want to say that Ulta Beauty has the best rewards program ever especially if you get salon services there (which I do!). I used my points to redeem to pay for some of the products below. Aaaaaaand now on to my Fall 2014 Haul!

 

ebblog fall 2014 haul bags

 

Make Up Forever Artists Shadows and Artist Palette – Special shout out to Cosmetically-Challenged because she really made me excited for this new line of gel to powder shadows from Make Up Forever. You can create your own palette OR you can choose to purchase the Artist’s palette. I opted for both. You do get a discount when you create your own palette (two or three pan palette) making the shadows a bit more affordable.

T3 Single Pass Compact Iron – I need a new flat iron badly and I prefer a smaller, compact flat iron because my arms get tired really, really fast. I had been on the fence about this because it’s got just a single heat setting but it gets great reviews and I think it’s time to graduate from Chi to T3.

Urban Decay Perversion Mascara – I bought the full size because I loved the sample I got in last month’s Ipsy bag.

MAC Strobe Cream – The best thing about free standing MAC Stores is they sell everything so I was able to get a travel size Strobe Cream for $10.

MAC Pearlglide Intense Eyeliner in Designer Purple – My obsession with purple is real this season!

MAC Electric Cool Eyeshadow in Highly Charged – Moar purple!

Shea Moisture Super Fruit Complex Shampoo and Hair Masque (not pictured) – I have to thank Daydreaming Beauty for inspiring me to try this line out. Before vacation I went pretty blonde which ended up really drying my hair out. I recently went back to my natural hair color and I am hoping these products help infuse my hair with moisture.

Redken Wax Blast 10 – A recommendation from my stylist.

Too Faced Cat Eye Palette – I have been on a Too Faced high recently. Hopefully that keeps up with this incredibly cute palette!

Urban Decay Shadow Box – It was the Urban Decay Ammo Palette that really jump started my beauty obsession and this was more of a nostalgic purchase. Plus it’s pretty!

Essence All About Nude Eyeshadow – A curiosity purchase. I have seen a few good review on their new palettes. This was the one that spoke to me.

Essence Stay No Matter What Eyeshadow Pencil in Whipped White Frosting – I was craving frosting and this eyeshadow pencil is beyond pretty. I have high hopes for this!

Essence Crystal Liner in Sparkling Purple – I’m addicted to adding just a little bit of glitter to my outter v, to give it that little bit of pop.

Deborah Lippmann Nail Polish in Flash Dance – I had a $20 Nordstrom Note and I got this. It’s such a GORGEOUS color! Perfect for my toes on fall!

City Color Barely Exposed – Last but not least… I grabbed this at Five Below. I loved my last City Colors purchase so I thought I’d try this.

There you have it, my Fall 2014 haul. I am going to TRY and go on a no buy but I suspect that is going to get really, really hard for me given that Holiday 2014 is literally right around the corner. Have you been on a shipping kick lately? What are some of the new items you have picked up?

Beauty Picks for Fall 2014

ebblog fall 2014 picks

The fall is one of my favorite seasons. Yeah, towards the end when everything is dead it can be depressing but the transition of colors, fall flowers, the scents, flavors, the weather… I just LOVE Fall. Unlike the other three beauty seasons, fall tends to get the least amount of love because the Holiday collections usually launch within a month of fall actually settling in and the shift focuses to the Holiday deals and steals. Before the holidays take over our lives pick up some of my Fall 2014 Beauty Picks and enjoy everything that the fall has to offer. ebblo fall 2014 picks 1.) LORAC Pro 2 Palette $42.00 – I have already raved about this and the Pro 2 is the perfect collection of neutrals and jewel tones for Fall 2014 with the added extra bonus of a mini eye shadow primer as well. A budget friendly alternative would be the Wet n Wild Limited Edition Fall 2014 Melrose palettes. 2.) Bobbi Brown Skin Foundation Stick $44.oo – I rave about this every month and the Bobbi Brown Skin Foundation Stick is the BUSINESS. I can fake trained estheticians when wearing this foundation that is how much it mimics actual skin. It is long wearing but emollient enough to not dry your skin out as the air gets drier. This foundation stick wears/covers well on its own, is easy to apply and has INSANE lasting power when paired with a primer/setting spray. 3.) Make Up Forever Mist & Fix $12.00-$29.00- This is a recent discovery of mine and I have been reaching for it more than my trusted MAC Fix+. The fall is a transitional season so depending on where you live experiencing summer like weather into November can be expected. Make Up Forever Mist& Fix will set your makeup for the humid days and it will also add some moisture to your skin on drier days. You can get a travel sized bottle for $12! 4.) Serenity + Scott Powder Foundation $26.00 – If you prefer a powder foundation this is going to be your holy grail. The Serenity + Scott Powder Foundation applies beautifully, looks like skin, doesn’t cling to dry skin and it is available in a variety of shades. This is hands down my favorite powder foundation and I typically don’t like them. 5.) Too Faced Cosmetics Melted Berry $21.00 – Berry and red shades are hot for Fall 2014. Melted Berry is hands down my favorite dark lippie of the moment. It is long wearing, doesn’t bleed, glossy, not drying on my lips and leaves a very pretty stain behind. Pro Tip for wearing a dramatic lip: If you have drier lips, exfoliate your lips first and then follow with a light layer of lip balm before you apply your makeup. By the time you’re ready to do your lips they will be hydrated and ready for color. Also, darker colors should also be applied with a lip brush. 6.) Rimmel London Scandaleyes Waterproof Kohl Kajal Eyeliners $3.99 – Waterproof, available in a staggering amount of colors, easy to apply, easy to find and affordable. What’s not to love about the Scandaleyes Kohl Kajal Eyeliners. Optimal colors for fall: Black, Brown, Purple, Taupe, Nude and Deep Blue. 7.) Milani Eye Primer $5.99 – This is the best eyeshadow primer on the market right now if you ask me. If you’re going to be rocking some funky Halloween makeup, on trend smoky eyes, graphic liner, etc Milani’s Eyeshadow Primer is going to be your new best friend. Pro Tip: If your foundation/concealer is creasing no matter what you do, try a little bit of eyeshadow primer underneath your foundation/concealer. What are your go to beauty products for the fall? Is there any Fall 2014 beauty trend you are just dying to try? Ashley
