Billion Dollar Brows Review

Thursday, December 31, 2015

I got the chance from Brand Backer to try products from Billion Dollar Brows! They sent me two different product sets to review - first off: I will always give my honest opinion on anything that has been sent to me. Why review something without being honest about it?!

If you rather watch me review the products - go to my video on my YouTube channel! I will also have the video at the bottom!

Every day when I do my makeup - I HAVE to fixed my eyebrows. Making brows on fleek is important for me! When I look back at my pictures before I did my brows, I think "What in the world?!"
Okay, now onto the products:

I am loving both of these sets! The best sellers kit has everything you would need! A pencil, highlight/concealer, brush, and clear setting gel! The pencil in the kit is my favorite! The color works great for my hair color and filled in the sparse places in my brows. I also love that the gel is clear so it works great for all hair colors!

The 60 seconds kit is perfect for everyday use! When I fix my brows majority of the time I just use a powder and that's it! So this is the way to go for everyday makeup! The color is supposed to work for all hair colors - which is great for giving as gifts!

I loved both of these products, they both are very nice quality especially to make sure your brows are on fleek! (LOL) I had never heard of this brand till I saw it on Brand Backer. I now love these products and recommend you to try them out! Also if you have already used their products - let me know!

If you would like to purchase:

Best Sellers Kit ($42 Value)
60 Seconds To Beautiful Brows Kit ($24 Value)

APS Ultimate Planning | Tips and Tricks

Wednesday, December 30, 2015

PS: (Yes, at the beginning) I will be posted screenshots of what the sale website looks like in a slide show, which will be at the bottom!

Or you can go to my Google Album Here:

It is never too early to start preparing for the SALE. If you don’t have any clue what I am talking about – THE LILLY PULITZER AFTER PARTY SALE! The SALE that only happens twice a year! I mentally prepare my self for the sales year round! Well today, my excitement is going to be used to share my tips and tricks on how to MASTER the SALE! First off, we do not find out when the sale is until 3-5 days before hand! BUT! From past sales I am using my best judgement on when it will be! So if its later - you'll be super prepared! But my prediction it will start January 4th, 2016 8AM EST!

Also below I will link my posts that I have from the summer sale.

My advice to you:

  1. Be Prepared

    1. Spend Some Money

      1. All that Christmas money you received or gift cards for Lilly will go to great usage!

      2. So many great prices add up!

    2. For the site to crash or be slow

      1. Imagine – you are not the only Lilly crazy fan out in the world. Some people from other countries are just as excited!

      2. So many people and only one site!

    3. Know What You Want!

      1. The more you want – the harder it’ll be to get it all. If you limit to all you want or what do you “need” in your closet – the less you want most likely to more you will get of what you want!

      2. If you know what you want – you can just search that exact name instead of searching through pages and pages of beautiful (and tempting) prints.

    4. The Temptation

      1. I can’t tell you how many items I have bought just from the great price and because I once wanted it! Once I have completed my search for my must haves – I am guilty for staying on the site for hours just seeing what else there is (incase I missed one item the time before).

      2. While purchasing you need to remember – you CANT return items, however people are willing to pay what you paid on an item if you change your mind or if you accidentally buy 3 items you didn’t mean to buy (oops...)

      3. Do you really need all those dresses? Think about it while buying, what do you usually wear more? BTW: dresses was JUST an example! By that I mean, if you want to purchase some dresses for a great price – go towards the dress! Don’t buy anything you don’t need or want!


    1. Take the day off!

      1. Luckily this time of the year my classes start a week later! And then one of my jobs I have off the first day! So I am warning you now, if you can’t shop the sale the morning it starts – you may not get anything you want. It’s sad but true.

    2. Have your account on Lilly Ready to go!

      1. On have your account ready to go for the day! Go ahead and store your card or many cards to check out easy to guarantee your items!

      2. YES! That means if you have something in your cart – does NOT mean it’s completely yours yet! You can to complete your order!!

    3. Checking Out Process

      1. There is a line... The checking out process can be easy if used the right way. However over the summer, after each purchase you went to the back of the line and in a virtual line to get on the website. But the sales before this past summer, once you were on the site you stayed on the site, so you could make many transactions. My tip for you if the same rule applies this time (the virtual line - and being sent back in line after a purchase) is to have many devices available to use to shop!

      2. SHIPPING IS FREE - You may have more than one transaction, but you don't have to worry about any shipping charges!

1. Have account ready - have your card(s) saves
2. Just because it is in your cart - doesn't mean its guaranteed
3. Know what you are wanting - makes process easier
5. Have more than one or two devices to shop(laptop, desktop, phone, iPad,etc)
6. Don't get upset if you don't get everything you want!


  1. The night before: clear your history as soon as you are going to sleep

  2. Then once history is cleared, go to, log back in and make sure all cards are saved to your account!

  3. Get some sleep - especially if you have to wake up in the middle of the night if in different timezone.

  4. Wake up and have some fun! Don't forget the coffee and yummy snacks/breakfast to eat while waiting to get on site!

  5. Have your cards, gift cards, and wish list ready to go!

  6. Sounds silly, but have a table or your bed (a larger area) cleared off. Easy to keep all the devices you are using and lists within reach.

  7. I recommend getting on the site roughly 10 mins before it starts, then from 7:55ish I keep refreshing till 8 (or till I have a spot in line!)

  8. When it is GO TIME - limit distractions. Once you get on the site, you heart will race and the pressure is on.

  9. Last - Made the odds be in your favor....

If you have any other questions about the sale, ask me! I may have forgotten some advice - so ask if I know! This is an intense time so you need to be prepared!

Below is the slide show of all the screenshots I got from the Summer APS 2015, includes dress prices, minnies prices, and couple other items. Hope it gives you an idea of prices!

Every Holiday Should Feel This Good

Merry ChristmasIMG_2216 IMG_2221 IMG_2225 IMG_2238 IMG_2387 IMG_2457

I just wanted to say Merry Christmas to everyone who reads my blog! I am so thankful for everyone who has read or checked out my blog before! I love blogging and it has become an addiction of mine! I hope your holidays are filled with joy and cheer! At the end of the day, don't forget the true meaning of Christmas - to celebrate to birth of Jesus! I had the chance to speak during church on this past Sunday, it was fun to learn a little more than I knew about things involving that special night the Messiah was born! Can you imagine being a young teenage girl in the first century giving birth to the son of God!? I praise Joseph and Mary for showing true companionship and honor!

{ A little twist }

What do you do on Christmas Eve and Christmas Day? Any traditions that go on through your family? Please comment and let me know! I would LOVE to hear (read) them!

My family doesn't have any traditions really, we just make sure we are spending time with family. For the past couple years, some things that I enjoy are:

  1. When my dog, Olive, LOVES to open presents. She usually starts the opening of gifts by tearing at someones nicely wrapped box. Each year we give her gifts as well, but hers is never enough!

  2. Mashed Potatoes from Costco! My mom always gets our favorite mashed potatoes from Costco that are only available around holiday times! I love them so much! Perfect amount of lumps also!

  3. One year, we didn't put up the Christmas tree, so instead of worrying about it we began to pile up all the presents to form the look of a Christmas tree. No, it didn't look beautiful, but the fun thought was pretty great!

  4. I can only remember one White Christmas. It was my first, and most likely won't happen in a long time where I live. It was crazy! It wasn't the magical white Christmas, when you wake up to a blanket of snow. It starting snowing during the morning and by the end of the day, I had my first White Christmas!

Over time, traditions never mattered to me. It was the small enjoyable memories that came each year. So on that note, what is your FAVORITE holiday/Christmas memory? Let me know!

Merry Christmas and enjoy this wonderful time of the year!

How I Style - Plaid and Cords

Wednesday, December 23, 2015

IMG_1613 IMG_1609 IMG_1634 IMG_1631 IMG_1625

J.Crew Factory out did this year during this fall and winter! I have gotten many new things this year from there - plus J.Crew. Todays outfit includes my new favorite plaid! Plaid is SO popular this year!

I am LOVING this color combo of the classic red and green, I love this plaid flannel shirt from J.Crew Factory. I also have the "paper bag" skirt in this plaid! Similar Shirt Option Here.

For the pants I am wearing, are these off white corduroys from Lands End. I love these from Lands End, couple reasons. They fit so comfortably and feel perfect while wearing! It isn't easy finding pants that feel great while wearing! I've also worn the same style of pants from my past two posts: Sequin Top | Buffalo Check Vest

I thought the shoes tied this whole outfit together! With a touch of animal print to pair with plaid! These are by Sperry, my mom found these from Goodwill and they were perfect!

I'm also wearing my Kendra Scott Alexandra White Pearl earrings - that I love so much! They match so many things and I've worn them a lot so far! I recently bought my first earrings from Kendra Scott this past month, and love how they look! So classy and girly! Also guys... They would be a great gift idea!!
I hope you enjoyed todays outfit look, if you haven't seen my past outfit posts just click on the pictures below to see the outfit!

Last Minute Gift Ideas

Tuesday, December 22, 2015

last min 2

Is time crunching on you? Don't know what to get your friends or family? Well I've got you covered!

Rocksbox: If you haven't seen my past Rocksbox posts, you need to check them out! I love Rocksbox so much, its such a great idea to be able to rent higher price jewelry for a month and get new items each month! With my code "DARLINGINLILLYXOXO" you can get your first month for FREE! That's great! Plus you can give a friend or family member one as well! Let their love for jewelry grow each month! (PS: Kendra Scott is featured in my box each month!)
December Rocksbox Post || November Rocksbox Post

Amazon Gift Card: Virtual is always the way to go! Plus, what DOESN'T Amazon have? Giving someone an Amazon gift card it great! I don't think someone wouldn't be able to find something they would like! Every time I am out shopping and I see something I want, not in my size or out of stock. I go to Amazon, and 99% of the time they have what I want! So you can NOT go wrong with Amazon gift cards!

Starbucks Gift Card: I don't know if it's just me, but I LOVE getting Starbucks gift cards! You can now send gift cards through emails which is easy and fast! Know anyone who goes past a Starbucks to work daily, but doesn't spoil their self enough? Get them this! Coffee there is roughly $4-5 so a $5 gift card is perfect! Sometimes a $10 is nice to get a coffee and a bakery item!

Billion Dollar Brows: My last idea is a product I got to try out and I am loving it! If you know someone who loves makeup and is rocking the brows on fleet trend - this is perfect for that one person! There is two products that are great and work wonders! The Best Sellers Kit then the 60 Seconds to Beautiful Brows Kit are two great sets to get your brows to be show stopping.

Side note: Remember everyone will love a gift card! You can NEVER go wrong with a gift card if you are ever doubting what to get!

Hope you enjoy this Holiday week and Merry Christmas!

How I Style - Marley Lilly

Monday, December 21, 2015


IMG_2092 IMG_2077 IMG_2072 IMG_2071 IMG_2069 IMG_2059I just received this amazing flannel in the mail this past week. How cute is it? I love it! The scallops on the collar is the first thing that sold me! Southern Proper won with this shirt by adding the scallop touch! I did buy this from Marley Lilly with a gift card that was needed to be used. I love the option to get it monogrammed! Plus they work so quickly, then I received it a week later! I love the colors in this top, I don't have a pink flannel and finally have the perfect one! Whats even greater - my Kendra Scott Alexandra Rose Quartz earrings match PERFECTLY! At the bottom of the post I linked similar styles of my earrings in Rose Quartz to match this cute top!

Little more info on this top: Its called the Monogrammed Brooks Popover by Southern Proper. They went fast, super popular. The only place I could find them in stock for you was on Country Club Prep! There are three different plaid colors, then a navy and white option. If you are interest - GO QUICK! They sell out quickly! PS: I love Country Club Prep - they ship FAST (and free) and have everything a preppy girl/boy could ever want! Plus you could always find a promo code for them. (Sadly I don't have one)

The pants I am wearing are my favorite Lilly Pulitzer travel pants! I love these and wear them so much! The quality has lasted forever and still going strong! If you ever get a chance to purchase these pants - get them!

Then last but definitely not least: my Sam Edelman Petty boots, that which I need some suede cleaner for them now (because I wear them at least 3 times a week)! I love these boots and want more pair now! I linked many options of these cute boots below the Kendra Scott selection. Just incase you want to drool over these adorable boots.

The pearl necklace I am wearing is from Talbots. I received it last Christmas, they are Freshwater Pearls. I love how there are two strands of the pearls instead on just one. I like to wear it with many tops and dresses of mine. It is always nice to have a good set of pearls.

Hope enjoyed this post! Click on these photos below to see my recent outfit post!

Life Is Short Wear Sequins

IMG_1939 IMG_1937 IMG_1926 IMG_1924 IMG_1881 IMG_1874 IMG_1863 IMG_1839 IMG_1808 IMG_1800

If you haven't seen this shirt yet, I hope you have now fell in love with it! I loved this shirt for a while, then I saw someone else wear it and I had to have it! I knew if I didn't buy it, I would have regretted it...

I love how this top has the stripes with the sequins all over the front (there isn't any on the back). It's such a  playful shirt how the sequins fall to the edge of the shirt sleeves. This shirt is perfect for the holiday season with Christmas and New Years!

The pants are corduroys from Lands End, which add such a classic look to this outfit. I love these cords, I wore them in my last post as well. The fit of these pants are amazing, with stretch and comfort fit!

Then of course I am wearing my favorite Sam Edelman Petty boots, which I've been wearing nonstop. And when I say nonstop, I truly mean everyday. I love these boots! There are so many color options and with wide options as well. For having a small heel, wearing them all day is not so painful! I really recommend these shoes to everyone!

I hope you enjoy todays outfit post, also check out my latest posts from this month!

How I Style - Red Pants

Wednesday, December 16, 2015

IMG_1686IMG_1683 IMG_1772 IMG_1762 IMG_1756 IMG_1744 IMG_1705 IMG_1686Isn't this color perfect for this season? I am loving it!! This is actually my mom's vest from J.Crew which you can get 40% off now! So quick before they are gone! J.Crew vests are so perfect in every way. They fit great keep you warm and they have so many varieties of these vests! I paired with the vest just a simple white button up from Vineyard Vines. Then these are Lands End corduroy pants. I love these pants, so comfy and fit great (which sometimes it hard to find)! Lastly I am wearing my Sam Edelman boots - which I am pretty much wearing everyday...

It is so close to Christmas pretty much a week away! I am on my winter break and keeping myself just as busy! Where I live it is still in the 70s! Isn't that crazy? I want more chiller weather, so I can wear my vests and layer! I don't mind the warmth but my heart and mind wants it be cooler!!

What are your Christmas/Holiday plans? Let me know! Maybe hearing about Holiday plans will make up for this warmer weather. Also what are you wanting for Christmas??

ALSO! Make sure you check out my Youtube video if you haven't seen it yet!!
