My Sunset 45's LLB for June !


This has got to be my FAVORITE box so far from Sunset 45 ! Since receiving their boxes I've been very open to adding statement pieces to my outfits to give it that extra "oomf "and this month's pieces were no different. This month's theme was tribal and it couldn't be anymore perfect for June.



In this month's box I received a lot of beauty products & let me tell you my little heart SANG!

I received:
  • NYX Butter Gloss in "Peach Cobbler" 
  • I Sao Pablo Over There by OPI
  • 7th Heaven White Thai Rejuvenating Mud Mask
  • Hello Waffle Mineral Blush in "But At Least I'll Look Pretty"
All of these items are perfect for summer ! The Hello Waffle blush gives such a natural glow to the skin and it literally felt like butter when I swatched it. The blush is like NAR's Orgasm and MAC's Gentle Mineralize if they had a child. Its a very natural blush, so I know it will go with many looks, like a dramatic smokey eye or just winged liner. 

The lip gloss also feels like butter on your lips (hence, the name "Butter Gloss") and it's EXTREMELY pigmented and its the ideal red for summer, not too red and not too orange (I sound like Goldie Locks, LOL).  

When I first saw the nail polished I literally laughed out loud at the name. The polish is such a gorgeous color, that could be worn as a mani or pedi color. The color that I think can be considered a dupe for this would be Essie's "Merino Cool", they're both cool tone greys that'll look great on a multitude of skin tones during any season. 

 "Peach Cobbler" & "But At Least I'll Look Pretty" swatches

This month's box came with great jewelry pieces ! The earrings are so cute and simple, but embody the tribal theme sooo perfectly. I can picture myself wearing them for so many different occasions this summer.


This has got to be my FAVORITE piece from the whole box. . . .


I love this necklace so much! It's simple but not too simple. Its so perfect, I honestly feel the picture doesn't do it any justice. A necklace like this can definitely spruce up so many outfits, like a plain white tee and boyfriend jeans. I'm so smitten ♥. 

I received the Classic's box this month & it is so perfect for me. I'm soo happy with this box and I know I'm going to get so many uses out of everything I received.

PLL - Whirly Girly (S5 Ep.2)

Photo from SpoilerTV.com

Last night's PLL episode definitely through us a little roller coaster....Ali's lying to Holbrook, Mrs. D is officially dead, Mona is back to her old ways, and Shawna's death hasn't been reported YET.  OH! AND MELISSA IS A LIAR.

I don't understand why Ali would not tell the Liars beforehand that she was going to tell Holbrook that she was kidnapped. She knows that they aren't taken seriously so why give the Rosewood Police Department another reason not to believe them. It was definitely very shady of Ali to do, which makes me think that the she can't be trusted if she's already weaving a web of lies and has only been in Rosewood for 5 minutes. 

Mona is such a creep...how did she get Ali's new phone number already ?! I'm dying to know what she has up her sleeve due to her devious nature.

Aria is super paranoid about killing Shawna (WHO WOULDN'T) and keeps looking online to see if her death has been reported, but of course it hasn't. I'm guessing this means that she is still alive, but I don't know. If Aria is going crazy over this she should have spoken to Emily who has been in her shoes before and could offer her some advice. 

SPOBY !!! I felt so many feels when I saw Toby ! I'm so happy he's back; he keeps Spencer so grounded. But, Toby came back from London with some pretty valuable information about Melissa. He never saw Melissa in London! So how did Melissa know that Spencer relapsed ? I think she definitely has it out for the girls and is going to be the head person in the group that Mona has created. Could Mona be Melissa's ally ? 

At the end, we get confirmation that Mrs. D is really dead. Ali's new dog Pepe found her in the backyard (what a cute dog!). I really think that the person that she was protecting all this time is Jason. But why would he want to hurt his sister ?! Why would his mother not mention anything !? Who really killed her ?! And why would he tell Hanna and Emily to stop going to places that they aren't welcome in ? That seen was my favorite LOL.


"Go follow him Hanna!"
"FOLLOW HIM ?! I have to go change my underwear !"

Next week is Mrs. D's funeral and we all know that something always happens when the Liars attend a funeral.

PLL - EscApe From New York (S5 Ep.1)


OMG, where do I begin ?!!!?!?!? 

Last night's episode definitely had my heart racing from start to finish. This episode felt like the season finale I was waiting for ! 

Well for starters, Ezra is definitely alive and doing well for now. Everyone knows Alison is alive and Mona is making her own " We Hate Ali" Team, which includes Lucas, Paige, NOEL*, and Melissa. *I honestly thought that Noel was present at the meeting but I re-watched the episode and he wasn't. So sorry for the confusion ! 

I've always known from the beginning that Noel could not be trusted since he did date crazy Mona at one point in time. I think he was playing Ali from the beginning by giving her some bullsh*t "secret" so she could trust him and he is now plotting against her. 

The lovely Shauna is back and has officially left the building from what we know. We first see her in the hospital and she tells Aria that Ali called her to make sure she was okay. Aria fell asleep -_- and Shauna gets to see Ezra first and I think she did something to him so he could go into shock. But, I don't think she was the person on top of the ambulance when they took Ezra and the nightmare that the liars are living is not over. 

But Shauna wasn't so faithful to Ali, she fell in love with Jenna and is now seeking revenge. Did she honestly think that she was going to hurt the liars even if she had a gun ? It was 4 against 1 and Aria came and saved the day! She hit the b*tch with a shotgun and she then falls literally TWO FEET and apparently "dies". I don't think she's dead because let's be real, does anyone really die in PLL at least the first time? 

I'm dying to find out what Melissa's secret is because her dad is making it a point to keep it between them. Which makes me think was he the one to bury Mrs. D because she knew something about Melissa ? 

CeCe is finally out of Rosewood and is currently in Paris under her new alias, Vivian Darkbloom. Good for her, I mean how will they ever know that she was the one that killed Wilden. But, can she be trusted ? Will Noel tell someone that she's in Paris ? 

Next week, Ali is going back to Rosewood officially & I can not wait to see what happens. 

Your thoughts on this episode ?

May's Little Luxuries Box by Sunset 45

Hello Readers !


I know its 3 days into June, but I'm going you my thoughts on May's LLB (some things are better late than never)! 

The theme for this month's box was geo-black & modern pearls, a combination of things that I love ! On the fashion runways, Celine, Chanel, Bouchra Jarrar, & Balenciaga were the inspirations for this month's box. I love black and white, its so chic and the color combo goes with EVERYTHING. Monochromatic looks are something I try to incorporate in my wardrobe since its so classic & will never go out of style. 

The box came with some amazing pieces ! My favorite piece has got to be the "Maggie" necklace. It honestly is such a beautifully classy statement necklace. It can be styled easily in the summer and will transition so well in the fall and winter months. 


The "Sabine" bracelet is so adorable and so are the matching drop earrings ! I think its perfect for the office, casual wear and it would look great with a simple LBD.


My LLB also came with a pair of sunglasses that are very trendy, but I'm not sure if they are my style. I don't dislike them but I also don't love them. Maybe they just don't mesh well with my style ? I wasn't too fond of the MIENN fragrance oil, I was not crazy about its scent and I honestly can't even describe it to you. I thought it was just too strong for my liking.


I really like some of the things I received in my LLB this month, but I'm thinking maybe the Classic's Box is more my style. This box and the one I received last month were both Lavish Boxes. Maybe I'm lucky enough to get the Classic's Box next month. 

For those interested in the Little Luxuries Box by Sunset 45 it is now available if you want to subscribe! I'm so excited for June's box since I stalk their Instagram (@sunset45shop) to see little sneak peeks for the upcoming boxes. LOL. 

I hope you enjoyed this post & subscribe to receive the LLB monthly ! You won't regret it ! 

Thanks for reading,
