January PopSugar Must Have
I’m very sorry!
I have not posted anything for such a while and I’m so behind on my blog and I have decided to take a temporary hiatus until I can get organized with school and work.
If only you could see the pile of magazines, notes, Birchboxes, PopSugar boxes, and other hauls I have done that I have been meaning to post about that have piled up on my desk that at this point my laptop is actually on my chair. Seriously.
I did make my New Year’s resolution to be back and better than ever and I do plan to keep that resolution but the year is not close to being over! It’s only just becoming spring.
While I did notice I did lose a few followers and hits to my website because of my lack of posts, I understand. You could still find me occasionally pinning on Pinterest and my random chatter on Twitter. You are also welcomed to follow me Instagram (ehknee) if you are interested in keeping up with me while I’m organizing a few things.
I’ll be back, promise.

I Want Wednesday!
Hey! Sorry for the delay in posts recently! I’ve been working, in school, and on top of that with the flu…oh man! But here I am with my January Birchbox that I got a few weeks ago. Again, sorry for the delay!
For this box I’ll only put the link and description for each item.
- 100% Pure - Nourishing Body Cream in Vanilla Bean $15
This skin-friendly moisturizer is made exclusively from 100 percent vegan, organic ingredients. Not that you needed an excuses to slather it on.
- 100% Pure - Nourishing Body Cream in Cabernet Grape $15
Same as above description.
- Clark’s Botanicals - Smoothing Marine Cream $115
Dull skin no more, thanks to the glycolic acid in this exfoliating moisturizer. The gentle tingle means it’s working.
- theBalm cosmetics - Put a Lid On It Eyelid Primer $18
Keep that pretty eye shadow crease-free with this stay-put primer, which also prevents smudges and smears.
- amika - Color pHerfection Shampoo $22
This gentle shampoo contains fortifying omega acids and healing sea buckthorn berry oil to keep your hair color bright and shiny.
- Harvey Prince - Skinny Chic $55
Keep your energy levels high (and fight cravings to boot) with this zesty blend of apple, mint, and lotus blossom.
Along with everything it came with a booklet with sort of a New Year’s resolution you can do. Some of them are things such as: smile, “get cozy” with SPF, and set a new fitness goal.
All in all, I think it was a pretty good box. I did enjoy getting the Clark’s Botanicals face cream because I’m up to have something for my dry face and when I’m not using my argan oil.
I haven’t really used anything else in the box but I’m looking forward to trying the shampoo but I keep forgetting to use it whenever I wash my hair. I’ll try it soon.
If you would like to sign up for Birchbox you can click HERE to do that.
Hope you have a great rest of you week!
Sunday Challenge! Do You Need New Shoes?
This I Want Wednesday is more of something that goes together nicely. Most of it is a splurge and of course it is on the Want list, but doesn’t mean you can’t save up for it right? Right.
I’ll just give you the name of the item and the cost along with the link of where you can find it.
- RGB Cosmetics - Nail Polish in Sea $16
- Skagen - Round Faceted Crystal Face Watch $120
- IVI - Division Aviator Sunglasses $158
- Rebecca Minkoff - M.A.C. Clutch in Rose Gold $295
- Giorgio Armani - Luminous Silk Foundation $59
I will say this, I actually own the Giorgio Armani foundation but it’s from the first year it came out. So it’s very old. I only keep the bottle because I’m reminding myself that I need to buy again the foundation because it’s my all time favorite foundation. It’s the most expensive foundation I’ve ever bought at $59 (I spend now at most $42 for one). I love it and would highly recommend it but no where near me sells it anymore.
I hope you guys had a wonderful day!
I Want Wednesday!
So, this has been my personal challenge for the near year. I am personally not a shoe buyer. While there are shoes I would like to buy I can see my money going else where.
On the 2nd of January I started a new job and I quickly realized I really am in need of new footwear (and wardrobe, but that’s another post for another day). I didn’t want to wear heels everyday to work because I work in a large office building that I find myself parking miles away and getting lost inside the building everyday and I only own two pairs of flats that doesn’t quite match everything I own. Oops.
On top of my business wear during the week on Fridays we are able to wear jeans…well…I don’t want to wear sneakers to work so all I have left are my knee high boots from Steve by Steve Madden which are now unwearable (pictures of the status of that will be below) and I’ll talk about shoe repair in a second. Anyway, that’s what I was wearing to work every Friday because it’s the winter and my winter attire is very limited…it’s sad really (I said I’m not a shoe person! Haha).
Continuing on, I have seen the light…finally…I needed new shoes…and I splurged on 2 shoes especially. Not like me at all. If you remember my last I Want Wednesday there was a bootie from Coach, well I bought them. As of this posting I have not received them, I went to my nearest Coach store to buy them because that I way I don’t have to pay for shipping (there is a hint for those trying to get out of shipping costs with online retailers, go to their retail stores if they one near you and ask them to order for you, shipping is usually free). Also, yesterday it was snowing here in Ohio and I bought the Hunter Rain Boot I’ve been wanting so bad in Black and wore them to work since it was a Friday and snowy. So so so so happy.
Last but probably not least in my shoe buying extravaganza for the week is a flat from the Sole Society called the Edie flat.
I completely forgot that I had a coupon code from Influenster that was expiring this month and I decided to use it. I’ve used Sole Society way in the past and I like their flats that I have (one of the two that I own) so I decided to use a $25 off code that I had and buy another pair. And these are it! :)
If you would like to sign up for Sole Society you can click HERE and sign up and buy shoes like me and be part of my Sunday Challenge.
Next subject…shoe repair. Click on read more to continue on with me and see the disaster my poor boots are in… :(
I haven’t done an I Want Wednesday in a while and I decided to do one for you guys!
My I Want Wednesday is a few of the things I find online that I just basically would like to buy for myself. I have bought in the past a thing or two of my I Want Wednesday list but sometimes the things on the list are a bit of a splurge.
I will list out each item with their link and the prices.
- Henri Bendel - Jetsetter Large Dopp Kit $88
- Bauble Bar - Silver Bullet Studs $40
- Coach - Cary Bootie $139 (on sale from $268)
- Dolce & Gabbana - The Lipstick Classic Cream Lipstick in Golden Rose Pink $30
I’m really obsessed with the booties from Coach and I’m seriously considering doing a nice splurge on them since I got a 25% off coupon from Coach in the mail this week. Hmm… On another note…the Henri Bendel dopp kit is something I need for when I go somewhere because I have the ugliest little dopp kit and it’s too small.
My birthday is next week so if I splurge on myself it isn’t so bad right? Right.
Have a great day!
