local haunts // boutique 31

Last week I was out in beautiful ole Tennessee to house sit for my mom and I stopped into one of my favorite boutiques, Boutique31. It's a small little shop that carries adorable clothing in standard and plus sizes. Kaitlyn, the owner, is the sweetest gal and she always has adorable pieces. Here's what I picked up!
I'm a sucker for cute leggings because they're soooo comfy. These leggings were posted on Facebook and I was hoping to snag a pair. They were only $5! Since these aren't quite as loud as some other pairs I have (coughcoughDOGPRINTcoughcough), so I'm excited to pair them with a black tunic and boots out somewhere casually.
How pretty is this necklace?! I love the green, the black, and the tassle. Definitely a good score for my jewelry collection.

And coming soon is a second location for Boutique31 in Knoxville!! I'm so excited to visit and happy that they're doing so well.

latest thrift finds // tn

While out in Tennessee, I stopped by a local Goodwill. I'm pretty far from a major city so thrifting can be hit or miss out here, but I did find some neat things! The black checked shirt dress is from Old Navy and will work nicely with a pair of red flats. That little sweater is going to be adorable with dark wash jeans and boots this holiday season, and the full skirt is vintage with such a great print. I can't wait to wear it to the office with black pumps and a blush top. And if you ask Jess, I'm obsessed with tiny things, hence the little nesting baskets. They'll go nicely with my tiny lazy susan.

Have you found anything interesting while thrifting lately? Drop your links in the comments! ♥

empties #17

The never ending pile of empties has produced another post. I've now replaced the majority of my products with cruelty free and vegan items, so from now on I will be posting when something is not cruelty free and vegan (I'm still trying to use up old products to reduce waste). ♥ And, as always, please do your own research! I'm human.
Pacifica Kale Detox Face Wash* // This is one of my favorite cleansers! It's a light, green smelling cleanser that's great for every day use. You can see the full review here.

The Honest Company Honest Healing Balm // I found this in a box while I was decluttering. I don't remember using it when I first got it years ago, but it's since separated so it doesn't work properly.

tarte Rainforest of the Sea 4-in-1 Setting Spray Marine Boosting Mist* // I've finally finished up this little sample bottle. I liked it, but I'm not sure I'd buy a full size.

Palmer's Coconut Oil Facial Oil // I didn't like this but that's because I'm not a big facial oil fan.

H20+ Oasis Ultra Hydrating Cream* // This was a little sample I got in an Ulta order and LET ME TELL YOU this moisturizer worked SO WELL and made my skin look SO GOOD. I'm just so sad that a full size of 1.7 fl. oz. is $42 or I'd already have some.

tarte Pack Your Bags Undereye Patches* // I really enjoyed these patches. They were really refreshing!

Clinique Moisture Surge 72 Hour Auto-Replenishing Hydrator // not cruelty free & vegan // Meh. Strong chemical smell and I didn't see how it really did anything for my skin. I'm glad this was just a free sample from an Ulta order.

Nip + Fab Bee Sting Fix Toner Pads // not vegan // I picked these up at Marshall's. I liked them, but missed the bee venom ingredient, so I'll be looking for a vegan offering from Nip + Fab.

Juice Organics Pompeptide Moisturizer // This is my all time favorite moisturizer. Sadly it's been discontinued and this was the last tube I had. Crying.
Maple Holistics Tea Tree Shampoo // I loved this shampoo for my eczema. See the full review here.

Pür Disappearing Ink 4-in-1 Pen in Light // This was way too orange for me from the beginning. When I first bought it I wasn't as adept at blending as I am now, but it's since oxidized and I can't use it. I'd consider purchasing it in a lighter shade, but it's a little pricey.

e.l.f. Flawless Finish Foundation* in Porcelain (now named Natural) // I thought this was my go-to foundation color until I accidentally bought a lighter shade and had compliments (specifically from Kyle) that it worked better. So I say goodbye to Porcelain (Natural) and I've since moved to the Light Ivory shade. Definitely will keep buying!

Drybar Triple Sec Dry Shampoo* // I cashed out some Sephora points for this last year when I ordered my birthday gift. I really enjoyed this! The full size is a little pricier than I'd like to pay for a dry shampoo, but I'd consider it since it worked so well.

Auromere Herbal Toothpaste in Fresh Mint // I've used this toothpaste brand before and I really like it. I've tried the licorice flavor, too, but the fresh mint is much better. Definitely will pick up another tube when I see it.

There's another month!
