Luxury Lipstick Collection: TORY BURCH

Sophie Says Fashion + Beauty Blog | Luxury Lipstick Collection: Tory Burch

Let’s talk Tory Burch!

Tory Burch had always been one of my favorite designers because although I feel like her clothing is a little too mature for my age, I absolutely love her handbags and small accessories. When I first found out that she was going to release a beauty collection, I just about did a standing back flip. I immediately shared my excitement with my momma then we shared Instagram and blog posts anxiously awaiting its debut. Not too long after, I became the lucky girl that got to unwrap a few items from the collection that Christmas morning! I got This beautiful jewelry box, the perfume, and a travel sized roller ball bottle of the perfume. A year later, my mom gave me this lipstick!

I know this post is supposed to be about the lipstick, but I have to give this perfume a quick shoutout. Over all I have gone through two full bottles and two travel sized roller ball bottles of it. It's amazing.

Who here is ready for the weekend??

This weekend I am going up to Lake George with my family and staying in a lakeside cabin! We are bringing our boat and loads of good food, I couldn't be more excited! Being out on the lake at the end of summer is the best thing because you just get the overwhelming feeling that you want to soak every second of sunshine and summer up as much as you can before it's over. At this point in the year I always feel myself making memories as they happen and it's a bitter sweet feeling. The rest of my family is leaving today, but I have to work so I will be heading out at the crack of dawn tomorrow morning and picking up my boyfriend on the way there. It's about a four hour long drive (if I remember correctly) so tonight I plan on preparing by indulging in a bath filled with bath bombs and Lush Bubble Bars.

Who here watches Parks and Recreation???

That show has to be one of my all time favorites, so if you haven't seen every single episode, go do that! I love every single character and all of the subtle, and not so subtle, humor packed into every episode. One of my favorite episodes is when Tom and Donna celebrate "Treat Yo Self Day."

When I saw this bunch of 25 beautiful, long stem, fuchsia roses I could just hear Tom in the back of my mind..."treat yo self," and then I had to haha.

True Life: My Dog Is A Princess

If you've been following me on Instagram then you know that this is my puppy, Gigi, and she's the apple of my eye. Gigi is 50% Yorkie, 50% Chihuahua, and 100% Diva. She's a puppy still (3 years old is still a puppy, right?), and she never lets us forget! She is just like a toddler because she can run around and play and be so hyper for hours on end, and then at night she gets sooo super sleepy and snuggles up to whoever is closest to her. The best thing about Gigi is her sweet, affectionate demeanor and how she doesn't choose favorites. She will cuddle up to and kiss all over whoever happens to be nearby at any given time.

Pretty In Pink

Happy Monday!

How did everyone survive the heat this weekend? I don't know about you, but I had the most amazing past three days! My boyfriend came to visit me and took me out to such a nice sushi dinner on Friday, then we spent Saturday and Sunday exploring in my back yard. There's a creek that runs through our woods and we followed it all the way back to the swimming hole where we played catch with my dog for hours. We also put on our bathing suits (I wore a bikini top and my favorite Krass and Co. shorts) and cooled off while catching crayfish, 16 of them! It was so refreshing to hide out in the shade under the trees and it took me back to my childhood when I spent every single summer day back there with my two older sisters.

Luxury Lipstick Collection: YSL

Good morning!

Okay, so we've reached the second to last week of the Luxury Lipstick Collection and are finally talking about a brand that is very dear to my heart. I realize that that is a strange thing to say about a makeup line, but Yves Saint Laurent was the first luxury lipstick I ever bought for myself and was part of the reason I was inspired to take my blog to Instagram. The tubes of the Rouge Volupté are so stunning that I couldn't help but photograph them all the time. When I had built up so many pictures and was running out of ways to use these photographs (I literally had them as my phone and laptop backgrounds, hanging up around my room, and also featured on my blog), I thought, why not take these to Instagram where I can post about lipstick as often as I want? Today I am showing you a fresh set of photographs that I needed to take because I have recently added onto my collection, I hope you enjoy!

Rocksbox Flavors of the Month

Hello hello!

Man, am I exhausted! Have you ever had those days where you didn't do much but you're still so tired? I feel like this Kim Kardashian meme right now. I did a whole lot of catching up on things I've been putting off and planning for the future today, but right now I'm feeling like I didn't do enough. Tomorrow is a new day though, so to prepare for productivity I'm currently wearing this face mask and planning on calling it a night as soon as I publish this post. That way, I'll wake up feeling refreshed and ready to conquer.

Alright, let's get talking about Rocksbox!! I am super excited this month because I think this is the best box I've received yet!
