H&M Sweater Roundup

It's officially sweater season! I popped by H&M yesterday and, wow, do they have an incredible assortment of super chic and super affordable sweaters to choose from!I rounded up some of my faves and tossed in a couple $5 tops and a dress for good measure.

Some sweater trends to be on the lookout for this season include color block patterns, pops of bright colors, pearl accents, high necklines, and cropped lengths.

What are your favorite sweater trends this year?

LocalE Review + The Fashion Column Twins Giveaway!

"On October 3rd he asked me what day it was. 'It's October 3rd.'"
We're going to just consider it serendipitous that LocalE, The Fashion Column Twins, and I happened to plan a (pink) sweatshirt giveaway on Wednesday, October 3rd. What a perfect way to celebrate the magical year when the October 3rd Mean Girls holiday also falls on a Wednesday when everyone feels very compelled to wear pink! Lucky for me Emily and Elizabeth are anything but mean girls. I was so incredibly excited when they reached out to see if I'd be interested in collaborating on a giveaway (check out my latest Instagram post for entry details)! I remember when I first moved to Kansas City their gold sequin sweatshirt was a piece of KC swag I wanted more than anything. I'm so excited to now have it hanging in my closet!

Read on for giveaway details and make sure to enter the giveaway here on Instagram! Entries will be accepted through Sunday, October 7!

The Facial Bar Lash Lift + Tint Experience

A couple of weeks ago I had the chance to visit The Facial Bar for the first time! They were incredibly kind and invited me in to tour their space, learn more about their philosophy, and enjoy a complimentary lash lift + tint! Also, since visiting their Crossroads location The Facial Bar announced they'll be opening a second location in Olathe - huge congratulations to them!

The Facial Bar was established in 2015 as the first and only facial salon in Kansas City. Priding themselves on providing a variety of skin care options suitable for any budget, The Facial Bar's goal is to make skin care accessible so that everyone can have healthy, glowing skin! Their services include facials, peels, waxing, and (most recently) lash lifts + tints. All of the skincare services offered are 30 minutes and include steam, neck & shoulder massage, extractions, and ice globes to end the service. The aesthetic of the salon is light, airy, open, and clean. The chairs are arranged side-by-side in an open, casual environment to promote a laid-back, social feel.
