Yes! I’m doing back to back post! It is the season of GIVING, so I’m giving you all the info about Anthropologie’s current sale!

Last weekend, I tried on a few items and the majority of them are now on sale! I hope you enjoy the reviews from my fitting session!

THOUGHTS: I didn’t realize this was jumpsuit until I went into the dressing room. The wide leg pant threw me off. I decided to try it on anyway and FELL IN LOVE!!! The color is amazing the fitting was just right, I surprisingly felt comfortable in this jumpsuit for how form fitting it is. This jumpsuit would be amazing for holiday parties. * This is the only item from my post that is regular price. 
VERDICT: Treat yourself and BUY!!!

Color: Sky
Size: Small
THOUGHTS: If you’re looking for a very feminine, wintry look, this dress would be perfect! I like the dress, but i’m not in love with it. It looks a bit baggy on me. Please note, the dress is not an off the shoulder dress, I was trying to find different ways of wearing it.
VERDICT: Meh. I like it, I just don’t like it for myself.

Color: Yellow Motif
Size: One Size

THOUGHTS:  I have a love, hate relationship with kimonos, but this one brought me back on good terms! The yellow shade mixed with the maroon and blue floral print, makes the kimono versatile. You can wear it with leggings, a skirt, jeans, anything really. The fabric quality is fantastic!
VERDICT: BUY!

Color: Pink
Size: Medium

THOUGHTS: This coat was love at first sight! I have a large chest and thought a medium would not suffice. The medium fit perfectly and bell sleeves are an adorable touch! If you’re looking for a coat that gives you an effortless chic style, this is it!
VERDICT: BUY

Color: Red
Size: Small

THOUGHTS: The sweater is more of an orange shade than red.  I’m just not a fan of how it fits me at the waist. It’s not worth the price. I found better dupes at H&M for under $35.
VERDICT: DON’T BUY

MEN’S GIFT GUIDE 2017

Hey there!

Thanks for the feedback on my women’s gift guide last week!

It’s the men’s turn this week! I set up the guide in the same format as my women’s gift guide. I added low price alternatives and discount codes. There are several gift ideas for your boyfriend/husband, brothers, dad, etc. Feel free to contact me if you have any questions on any of the items on the list, or just to say hi!

I’m going to brave the toy stores this weekend and start Christmas shopping for my nephew. He’s almost 2 and all he wants are trains and cars. Pray for me as I take on Toys R’ Us.

Enjoy your weekend!

Xoxo,

Mia

SKIN CARE FAVORITES

I’m sharing my favorite skin care products on Baltimore Belle today!

I’ve listed my current favorites and some equal and low-cost alternatives.
Just a little background on my skin: It’s mainly oily and then dry in-between season.

FullSizeRender (1)

Pixi Glow Tonic Toner

Pixi’s Glow Tonic Toner is my MVP of all toners! It’s not harsh or drying and you notice a change in your skin in a week or two. It definitely brightens your skin, if you are consistent with it. I ventured off and tried another toner (that will not be named) and ended up breaking out on my nose and chin. Lesson learned Pixie, I will never betray you!

Alternative: Thayers Witch Hazel

Mario Badescu Glycolic Foaming Cleanser
This cleanser always makes me feel like I just had a facial. It removes the heaviest of makeup, blackheads and leaves your skin very soft. Bonus: It improved my skin texture and acne scars. I use this every other day then top it off with a moisturizer or facial spray for extra softness.

Alternative: Clean and Clear Deep Action Oil Control Face Wash

Mario Badescu Facial Spray with Herbs and Rosewater

I always thought rosewater sprays or any facial spray were total BS, until I tried Mario Badescu’s facial spray. The spray gives you that extra umph you need to look and feel refreshed. Its hydrating and the spray costs next to nothing!

Alternative: Evian Natural Mineral Water Facial Spray

First Aid Beauty Skin Rescue Deep Cleanser with Red Clay

I really like this cleanser because it minimizes blemishes and shrinks pores.

Alternative: Cetaphil Face Wash

Sephora Green Tea Mask

Sephora really out did themselves with their masks! They made several masks for all skin types. My favorite is the Green Tea face mask, it leaves your skin firm and hydrated. This is a great masks if your skin is feeling dull, and the price isn’t too bad either!

Alternative: St. Ives Nourished and Smooth Oatmeal Scrub and Mask 

 

Sephora Pearl Eye Mask

I will be using this later because it’s currently 2am as I’m typing this blog! This eye mask is my go-to. It saves me from using several layers of concealer to hide my dark circles.

 

Fresh Lotus Youth Preserve Eye Cream

I LOVE, LOOOOVE this eye cream! This is one of those products, that you need to use everyday to get results. I use the eye cream before bed and before I apply makeup.

Note: A little bit of goes along way. When I was searching for eye creams, a Sephora sales associate suggested Fresh Lotus and gave me several samples. It’s been two months and I still have a few samples left!

Alternative: e.l.f. Illuminating Eye Cream

Biore Deep Cleansing Pore Strips

Biore helps with the most stubbornness of blackheads. The results show, instantly! You will literally see every blackhead that was removed on the pore strip. I know it’s gross, but hey! It’s part of the beauty process! 🙂

Alternative: Nesura Charcoal Pore Strips Black Head Remover

Neutrogena Removal Facial Cleansing Towelettes 

These towelettes remove eye makeup very easy and it doesn’t leave your skin dry or irritated. It gets the job done.

Alternative: Studio 35 Night Calming Facial Wipes

 

I hope my skin care suggestions were helpful. I will be back Friday with a new post! Have a great week! 🙂

Xoxo,

Mia
