Stowaway Cosmetics is a new brand that sells makeup in smaller sizes so you’ll use them up before the products expire. The Stowaway Kit lets you try all six products from the first collection and comes in a little makeup bag that’s perfect for taking on the go. Really I fell in love with the packaging at first sight, sleek packaging always piques my interest!

My favorite product of all is the mascara. I’ve worn it every day from the first day I tried this makeup because it’s life changing! I rarely believe a product that says it does it all but this one actually does — length, volume, curl, and it never clumps. The BB cream and concealer are very light and comfortable on the skin, they will be my go-to base during the summer. I got the brown eyeliner which is my favorite color for everyday wear, it’s a soft pencil that goes on really smoothly. The scarlet lipstick (seen here) is a great orangey red, sometimes I even mix it with the rouge in peony for a really bright, bold shade. Otherwise I like to really blend in the cheek & lip rouge for just a pretty hint of color.

The products are so convenient for taking in your handbag or if you like a really minimal makeup look for everyday. Plus it feels better knowing none will go to waste — I don’t think I’ve ever finished a lipstick so these are a perfectly practical size. I can’t wait to see what they drum up next and I’d love to hear what you’d think if you’ve tried the brand!

It’s amazing how one piece can completely change an entire outfit. Granted, this faux fur coat doesn’t get a ton of wear but it’s still one of my favorite sale finds. I dressed it down recently with my current favorite white tee and ripped skinny jeans. I’m so impressed with the fit, feel and cost of this Everlane tee that I want to purchase another! I aim to have a good balance of wear-anywhere pieces and statement styles. Speaking of the latter, I found a few similar white faux fur coats still available for you to shop below!

I wore this outfit to a fun event last week where I got to preview BHLDN’s Spring ’15 collection. It was, as you can imagine, absolutely stunning — the gowns and jewels were something out of a fairytale. Plus, the Drybar was there to amp up my curls and Alyssa taught everyone how to make these beautiful flower crowns.
