Guess Where I Found My Favorite Fall Boots

Finding the perfect pair of boots is much like finding the perfect pair of jeans.  From the moment you slip into them, you know they will be the perfect companion for fall. They go with everything and they fit like a glove. That is how I felt when I stepped into my new pair of Dede Holma Boot Red WR Nubuck Boots from Waldlaufer.

Let's just talk about how cute these boots are. The color is absolutely perfect for fall. I love how it is not a color that you see every day in a boot. They are different and I love them! A great addition to your boot repertoire, Dede features ribbed rubber soles for maximum cushion, traction, and flexibility. Yes, they are not only cute, they are oh-so-comfortable!

Added benefits include their stylish lace up and side zipper detail. The thing I hate most about boots is a non-issue with the Dede! You just use that easy zipper and you slip right in. The laces are purely for looks! So smart! 

The natural waterproof nubuck leather boots also feature insulated liners and footbeds for extra comfort. I also love the Dede because you can wear them with practically anything casual. Yet they are really quite feminine, so comfortable, and so cute! Making them my absolutely favorite boots for fall ... and beyond!

This is a sponsored post written by me on behalf of In The Raw and SheSpeaks. All opinions are entirely my own.

Tis the season for hot beverages and pumpkin spice everything. But what if you want it sweet and spicy (without the calories)? That is where Organic Stevia In The Raw® comes in! I took the #OrganicStevia Challenge, where I tried it in place of sugar for a week. I didn't even notice the difference.

Just add Organic Stevia In The Raw to your coffee, tea, latte, or any other beverage. You can even sprinkle it on cereal or fruit. Use it in a smoothie, lemonade, oatmeal ... really wherever you use sugar. 

Organic Stevia In The Raw is the most recent addition to the In The Raw family of sweeteners. Each convenient packet is only three calories but provides the sweetening equivalence of two teaspoons of sugar.

Organic Stevia In The Raw:

Timeless Muse Gel Nail Polish Collection + Giveaway

Did you see my previous post on how to get gel nails at home? It features MelodySusie and shows you how easy it is to do. I am here to bring you another 1-step gel nail polish collection from MelodySusie, Timeless Muse.

MelodySusie's Timeless Muse 1-Step Nail Gel Collection contains six amaranthine nude colors that pair with a variety of skin tones, carefully chosen from thousands of popular shades. Ageless, dauntless, and flawless, you can dress them up for dramatic ensembles or dress them down for carefree looks. When used with an LED or UV nail drying lamp, you can achieve salon-quality manicures that last for weeks, not days.

The shades in this gel nail polish collection are flattering for anyone. Pink Rouge is sophisticated enough for a woman, yet playful enough for a girl. Light Peach is a subtle shade that blends in smoothly while still looking gorgeous. Warm Taupe is versatile yet vivacious; a color fit for a variety of ensembles and skin tones. Bordeaux evokes wine country scenes of sprawling vineyards, luscious grapes, and shockingly expensive bottles of red. Pair Beige with more vibrant piece to create a stunning contrast that looks darling, not drab. Caramel Brown is muted without being dull, and elegant without being arrogant.

All six shades are non-toxic, with minimal smell, and are non-damaging to nails. You can cure this polish under an LED lamp in 1 minute or a UV lamp in 2 minutes. They are easy to use and get about two weeks of high-performance without peeling or cracking. I needed 2-3 coats for most shades. When you are ready, you can soak them off completely in about 15 minutes. See more about my gel nail removal routine in this post.

So how do you apply gel nail polish at home? Start with clean and trim nails. This is necessary for effective gel adhesion. Then apply a thin layer and cure under an LED or UV nail drying lamp. Base and top coat are optional. Apply extra gel layers for a darker color. If nails feel tacky, wipe with alcohol or a gentle cleanser after curing.

Knock Knock is your source for clever gifts, books, and whatever else they can think up. Their mission? To bring humor, creativity, and smarts to everyday life. Mission accomplished, my friends.

Let's start with the fabulous File Under Fantastic File Folders. With sumptuous foil stamping and elegant hand-lettering, these fantastic file folders will look good just sitting on your desk with the rest of your cool office stuff. But more than a pretty face, they meld the stress-busting powers of coloring and the fulfilling act of categorizing your paperwork.

The set of six file folders adorn the phrases: File Under High Fives, File Under Double Rainbows, File Under Unicorns, File Under Good Times, File Under Sensational, and File Under Awesome. The pretty pastels look stunning with rose gold foil stamping. So you can color, or not. Your choice. Either way, you can file in style.

With the hectic pace of our digital age, it’s difficult to plan, track, and execute household meals. Keep it simple by harkening back to the bygone era of home-economics: if you schedule the food you eat with a menu planner, you’ll always know what’s for dinner.

Track meals with style and a refreshing minty hue with the What to Eat Pad. This weekly meal planning pad won't judge your cereal-for-dinner habit. It comes with 60 sheets and a magnet on the back.

Beauty Box 5 Subscription Box Review

Beauty Box 5 delivers a box filled with at least five cosmetic samples every month. Subscribers receive a mixture of luxury, recognizable, niche, and even vegan brands that cater to every skin type. Every box includes a selection of makeup, hair care, skin care, nail care, fragrances, and beauty accessories. 

The first thing in my BB5 was a crease brush. This is from Beauty Box 5's own line of makeup brushes. I like smooth handle which adorns, "Cut that crease!"

I also received a bottle of NANACOCO nail polish in the shade Copacabana Coral. This is a nice coral to transition into fall. This thick polish glides on effortlessly for gorgeous, shiny color.

Next up is the Line & Seal Twist mechanical eyeliner. This creamy, pigmented pencil goes on super smooth to give a perfect line or wing. The twist-up design means you never need to use a sharpener.

My favorite product is the Luseta Argan Hair Masque. This revitalizing treatment for damaged and color treated hair fortifies and restores your hair to its natural state. 

I also love the Quince & Crimson Lip/Cheek Crayon. This long-lasting lip & cheek crayon has a velvety, semi-matte finish. It is infused with Quince Extract and Argan Oil to give skin a healthy vitamin boost and the ultimate hydration.

Finally, Manna Glo Shimmer Lotion is an incandescent highlighter that can be used on the face and body to create a beautiful glow. It lights up your skin giving it an all over radiance. Mix with foundation or wear alone to provide a luminous glow for all skin types.

Subscribe :: You can subscribe to Beauty Box 5 for $12. Beauty Box 5 is a monthly subscription and there are twelve boxes available per year.
