Stripes + Leopard Print

Pattern mixing used to be something that was really intimidating to me! Any time I would see someone mix patterns I would try to re-create it and would fail....miserably. Then I started experimenting with less bold patterns and pieces and found my absolute favorite, stripes and leopard. Now I will pair a striped shirt with leopard loafers, a leopard print bag, or in this case, a leopard scarf. And I'm not the least bit intimidated by pattern mixing anymore! 

This particular leopard scarf is a new favorite! I received it along with these perfect cat eye sunnies and some Too Faced products in celebration of the #TooFacedxSoleSociety collaboration! Sole Society has been a long time favorite brand of mine for shoes and accessories, so when I heard that they were teaming up with Too Faced, a great brand of makeup, I knew it would be good! The package of goodies was purrrrfect and included the best eyeshadow palette and mascara for getting ready and accessories to finish off an outfit! 

Today you can enter to win the leopard scarf, the cat eye sunglasses, Too Faced cat eye eyeshadow palette, and Too Faced Better Than Sex mascara! Speaking of the mascara, it's easily a new favorite in my makeup bag! It works wonders on my lashes! 

Enter the giveaway HERE now through October 5th for a chance to win! Good luck!  

p.s. Charlie thought the package was purrrfect, too! ;-)

What's in my bag (& a giveaway)

Happy Monday! I hope you all had a great weekend. I was finally home for the first time in over a month. It was great to relax, wake up with no plans, and even do those oh-so-necessary chores around the house! Today I wanted to share a "what's in my bag" post! I always love seeing what others have in their bags (I'm nosy like that!) and I wanted to introduce you to some of my favorite things.

During the work week I typically carry my GiGi New York mini Taylor tote because it has so much room for everything I need. In it I have a mixture of work items and blog items. I always always always  have my iPad (case no longer available online, but love this one), my Kate Spade Planner, and my journal with me. I use each of these every day to keep track of my day and take notes.

The rest of the items in my bag are rather random, yet useful to me! I keep an assortment of pens (sharpie pens are my favorite, the ones shown are from the $1 at Target!), my Starbucks cup holder, blog business cards (you can get my business card holder here), and my Ray-Ban sunglasses. I also have a cosmetic case I keep in my bag that holds my beauty essentials. I am a crazy person when it comes to my nails....if one chips, even just a little bit, I am picking at them all day. I always keep nail polish in my bag for those touch ups! I also keep a spare mascara (really like this one), a roll on perfume, and a variety of chapstick and lipstick!

One of the more useful things in my bag are my Well-Kept towelettes. I was first introduced to Well-Kept when I received them in my swag bag from #LuckyFABB. They're perfect for cleaning my iPad screen, my iPhone, and even my screen in my car! I always keep them in my bag because I never know when my screens may need cleaning!


Today I am teaming up with Well-Kept and some fab bloggers for a giveaway where one reader will win a year supply a Well-Kept towelettes + $200!! Enter below via Rafflecopter for a chance to win now through 9/29! Good luck. xx
