It’s no secret that I love mystery boxes, which means Babble Boxx is everything I’ve ever wanted and then some. I’m partnering up with them today to talk about holiday party essentials so I hope you’re ready to see some bomb swag.
…is swag still a thing by the way? I’m not sure if people even use that word anymore, but you guys know what I mean. Hey, it’s tough to stay on top of millennial lingo – that’s a full time job in itself.
Goodies from Ellen Tracy
To be honest, I was never big into Ellen Tracy women’s apparel…until now. Don’t ask me why, but I always assumed their stuff was for old people. I was really off base with my judgement though. Babble Boxx included two items from their line, and I was genuinely impressed with the quality and design.
Their fall collection focuses on fresh colors and prints inspired by the 70s and 40s. They’re all about sophisticated chic, but they mix things up with whimsical details here and there. Their outerwear’s made with fiber fills to provide max warmth without the bulk, and their collars are cut large so you can adjust them however you please. Ooze modern elegance with their padded jackets for both work and play.
Ellen Tracy jewelry’s perfect for casual everyday wear, office style, and special occasions alike. Think fine sterling silver with two- and tri-color collections in yellow and rose gold. These statement pieces are classics that would be worth the splurge except they’re affordable as is, which is mind-boggling.
Conclusion: definitely check out their jewelry and clothing when you have a chance. My mom and I were honestly fighting over this coat during our trip to Georgia aka I ended up giving it to my mom because she loved it so much. And that means a lot coming from her because she’s way more fashionable than I am.
Colleen Rothschild Skincare
Guys, I can’t even begin to tell you how much I love CR Skincare. I’ve been a fan of their face oil five-ever, but this was my first time trying their cleansing balm and recovery cream. Thank god for Babble Boxx because I now have new staples in my beauty regimen.
Their radiant cleansing balm’s actually a cult favorite and best seller, and it’s easy to see why after trying it firsthand. It clears congested pores and removes impurities while dissolving makeup, leaving your face soft and beautiful. It has a unique blend of loofah seed and moringa oil in the formula, which renews the outer-layer of cells. Expect luminous skin that’s baby soft to the touch.
I’ve been using this in the evening post shower, but you can incorporate it into your AM ritual if you prefer. Place some product in your hands and rub it together to warm things up. Then massage it into your skin, and put a wet, warm muslin cloth over your face for a mini-facial that will do wonders. Afterwards, wipe it off and rinse with cold water to give yourself a glow you’ve never seen before.
Now that winter’s right around the corner, their recovery cream is an absolute must. It’ll hydrate like nobody’s business while strengthening the hydro-lipid barrier. It contains ingredients like aesthinet, hyaluronic acid, and wu-bai complex which fights lines and wrinkles while evening out your skin.
The cream has an incredible texture that I can’t get enough of. It’s unbelievably rich but not greasy or heavy. It literally melts into your face, and you’ll wake up feeling silky as can be. I know that’s a strange adjective to use, but you’ll understand once you try it for yourself. Think of this as facial butter, and you’re welcome in advance.
Anddd last but not least, their face oil no 9. This product contains a blend of magical oils that will give your face everything it needs and then some. It’s a must for those of you looking to hydrate and nourish your skin. I use 2-3 drops at the end of my skincare routine every couple of days, daily if I feel especially dry.
Woosh Beauty All-In-One Palette
This amazing palette has everything you need for a bomb holiday look: 4 eyeshadows, 2 concealers, 2 contour powders, 2 blushes, 2 foundation powders, 1 highlighter, and a 4-in-1 brush set. I mean, you don’t really need anything else other than a bomb lippie, which we’ll discuss below.
Their makeup’s mineral based, fragrance free, and they don’t test on animals, which is a huge plus in my book. Their palette’s also great for travel so if you feel like packing light, just throw this in your carry-on and call it a day. For those of you interested in trying this set for yourself, use code WOOSHWITHME at checkout to get 30% off your order until 2/1/20.
No holiday look would be complete without the perfect lippie, which is why you need GrandeLIPS in your life. Thanks to Babble Boxx, I had the opportunity to try two of their plumping liquid lipsticks, and I’m a fan. The formula’s creamy so you don’t have to worry about it cracking or creasing, and it’s semi-matte so it’ll stay on all night.
And I haven’t used it long enough to support this claim, but apparently people say they’ve experienced an increase in lip volume after using it twice daily for a month. Now, I don’t know if you’ll magically turn into Kylie Jenner, but the colors are gorg, and I have a discount coupon so why not give it a try? Use code TINSEL10 to get 10% off your entire purchase on the Grande Cosmetics website – valid until April 11th, 2020.
Levenger Softolio & Pen
I was so, SO excited to see Levenger included in my latest Babble Boxx. I’m big on journaling, and I like cute notebooks and writing utensils so naturally I freaked. The softolio leather planner is perfect for the business professional, and I’m so happy I got one in their limited edition rose gold leather. It comes with a ruled notepad, a circa annotation notebook, pockets for business cards, a pen loop and an interior zippered tablet pocket.
On top of that, the pen they sent me matched! Available in rose gold or champagne, their solid brass metallic ballpoint is weighted and balanced for a comfortable writing experience that will make you feel bougie AF. Use code DAYTOEVE for get 25% off your purchase from 11/1-12/20.
