Starbucks has always been a staple in my life; from helping me prep in the mornings to keeping my mind energized while cramming during all-nighter study sessions, I've always been a big fan. So as you can imagine, when they asked me to become a Starbucks blogger last year, I was overjoyed. When they asked me to be a part of the Starbucks blogger team again this year, I was beyond excited.

What's so exciting about coffee? EVERYTHING when it's Starbucks coffee! You see, they send me new, delicious products and in-exchange I get to share them with you - so what's not to love?! From scrumptious new K-cups to fun State themed cups, Starbucks has a little bit of everything in their stores and I'm a little more than pumped to be spreading the word about one of my favorite coffee companies.

While Starbucks is amazing in general, the line up they sent over in my holiday box is outta this world! Plus, the Florida cup & the tiny gold and white heart covered Espresso glass are two of my most cherished possessions now. The espresso cup was actually part of a hostess gift that I'm giving to a friend... but if you know my obsession with gold, you know I had to keep it and gift her another amazing Starbucks mug instead!

I'm not just excited about the mugs though, I'm excited about the Starbucks goodness that goes inside of the mug! With delicious White Chocolate Mocha Instant Lattes to a Special Holiday Blend, I've got the perfect Starbucks selection this winter... Today, I'm sipping on hot cocoa, the perfect Christmas treat and it's so incredibly easy to make with my Keurig and my Starbucks K-cups!

Sharing My Thoughts on My Most Recent Fix: Stitch Fix #4

While I wasn't compensated for this review, I did add a few referral links within the post - that just means if you sign up, I get a credit towards my next fix... So thanks for getting your fix on with me!

It's that time... Stitch Fix #4 is already here and I am totally loving getting a fix each month. Tell me what you think of what arrived this time...

It's fix number four and I'm still just as in love with Stitch Fix as I was the first time we met. I mean what's not to love about a service that provides you with a stylist that personalizes a "fix" just for you!

It's that time... Stitch Fix #4 is already here and I am totally loving getting a fix each month. Tell me what you think of what arrived this time...

With so many different items arriving each month, my wardrobe is becoming so diverse and I'm SO excited to see what arrives in my next fix. This month I asked for feminine items and my stylist definitely delivered! With a girly pink dress, the most adorable pair of pink corduroys, and a stunning lace top - I was head-over-heels with my fix this month.

It's that time... Stitch Fix #4 is already here and I am totally loving getting a fix each month. Tell me what you think of what arrived this time...

Let's start off my fix with this fancy little number! This gorgeous little pink and black polka dotted frock is literally femininity in dress form - so my stylist was right on the money to include it in my fix. While I fell in love the second I saw it, you may be able to tell that it's a bit snug on me. It fits, but it isn't perfect so back it went and maybe I'll get an even more adorable pink dress soon!

The next item I pulled out of the box was this funky little teal number. While I love the odd neckline, this shirt wasn't made for me. It's a bit too much for me, but I can see why my stylist chose to include it and I really do like the design of it. Honestly, if the material wasn't so clingy - I may have kept this top but yet again, it isn't perfect so I sent it back!

On to the next item, the bracelet. While I like it, I don't imagine I'll often be buying my jewelry from Stitch Fix - I somewhat like their jewelry but I love the clothing more and find the clothing to be more reasonably priced as well. With that said, the bracelet was really cute but again, not for me!

Item number four in my box was this sexy little black lace number. I like how modest, yet seductive this top is and the lace detailing is incredible! I was on the fence about this top but it's price tag being kind of steep was my ultimate decision to send it back... while I don't mind spending $50+ on the right top, this one is a bit too loose fitting for me to justify spending the big bucks on it.

Last but not least, the pink corduroys. These were actually the one item in the fix I questioned, but yet again my stylist didn't disappoint and knew exactly what she was doing... These pants are the perfect fit and since they were exclusively made for Stitch Fix, I couldn't risk sending them back and losing out on an epic pair of pink pants! I love the feminine color and can't wait to rock them all year long!

I'm sure you can see why I love Stitch fix so much now... but I have to remind you that we're now able to use the Stitch Fix app, which makes me that much more smitten with the service! I guess what I'm saying is that I think you should treat yourself to the best Christmas present ever and sign up for your first fix... and I mean, if you feel so inclined to thank me for sharing such an awesome gift idea with you, go ahead and send a gift card my way as well!

Proactiv Review First Impressions

This post was sponsored by Proactiv as part of a Influencer Activation for Influence Central. I received complimentary products to facilitate my review.


http://www.proactiv.com/

After a little battle with breakouts lately, I need to up my anti-acne game and start using something powerful (yet gentle) like Proactiv again. So when my box arrived in the mail a few weeks ago, I knew I had just invested in having beautiful skin again and luckily the process wouldn't take very long!

http://www.proactiv.com/

As I opened the box, I found a treasure chest of familiar goodies. I've been a fan of Proactiv for a while now, so it was no surprise that the kit included all the complexion perfecting items a gal (or guy) could need!

http://www.proactiv.com/

With exclusive microcrystal benzoyl peroxide, Proactiv gets down and dirty with acne and eliminates bacteria and other impurities like oil and dirt! I love that Proactiv gently cleanses my skin while completely clearing existing blemishes and even helping to prevent future blemishes from forming! The best part about Proactiv, other than how well it works, is the fact that the package makes the system completely user friendly! The entire package details how each item works and the bottles even perfectly outline each step so that even the most inexperienced skin care user can understand how to get clearer skin quickly.

http://www.proactiv.com/

While my skin is acne free now that I'm using Proactiv, I think I also should point out how healthy, hydrated, toned, and dare I even say how radiant it looks... without an ounce of makeup! I can now show off my freckles without having to worry about pimples and I have my new skin care routine to thank for that fact! It's nice to show my "real face" to the world and feel comfortable and confident doing so! I think anyone who has ever suffered from acne knows what an accomplishment it can be to go makeup-free, so kudos to Proactiv and I hope that my positive results will continue, I'll update you all on my Proactiv progress soon!

http://www.proactiv.com/

I had no idea about this little fact, but did you know Proactiv has actually been America's #1 solution for clear skin for the past 15 years? Don't miss your chance to clear your skin of blemishes and get the look you've been dreaming of - now is the time to find out how Proactiv can help improve your complexion today!

Check Your Christmas Shopping List Twice & Add These Items for The Little Ones!

Big thanks to Chicco for making today's post possible, while they sent over some items all opinions expressed below are my own.


http://www.chiccoshop.com/feeding/gift-sets/naturalfit-all-you-need-starter-set/00080742600070.html

I've heard of the brand Chicco before but I had no idea they carried so many awesome products; from amazing toys for a wide range of ages and abilities to bottle feeding kits that grow with a baby,
they literally made products for every stage of a child's life!

http://www.chiccoshop.com/toys/activity-centers/fit-and-fun-mini-golf/00008225000000.html#q=golf&selected=bc63AiaagYTnUaaadgnpdF8Dif&start=1

While Chicco offers all kinds of amazing toys, this year after some consideration I decided to give one little guy in my life the perfect toy for him! The little Chicco Mini Golf Club Set is a super fun way to get any little toddler in your life learning a game that's fun for any age! The little guy in my life is going to love his new set, especially because it's made to grow with him since it offers a training mode and a "hit the target" mode! Plus, while he's having fun he's developing hand-eye coordination skills, gaining motor development skills, and helps him learn accuracy! You know, I bet after a few rounds, we're going to have a professional golfer on our hands!

http://www.chiccoshop.com/toys/activity-centers/fit-and-fun-mini-golf/00008225000000.html#q=golf&selected=bc63AiaagYTnUaaadgnpdF8Dif&start=1

Even if he doesn't become a pro, I bet we'll have fun with the set! I bet he especially loves the fact that the set even plays little entertaining tunes and fun sound effects! Don't you think this simple little feature makes golf even more fun for a little friend of yours?

While golfing is always fun, we can't forget about feeding a baby! I'm so excited to share that there are a couple of babies on the way in my circle and that's why I wanted to give to one of my favorite people The Chicco Natural Fit Advanced Feeding and Soothing System that grows with her baby! I know choosing the right bottle is a tough process and I think these Chicco brand bottles offer all kinds of benefits and since the kit comes with all kinds of extras for baby, you really couldn't ask for a better way to start!

http://www.chiccoshop.com/feeding/gift-sets/naturalfit-all-you-need-starter-set/00080742600070.html

Engineered to be responsive to the changing feeding styles of all babies with three distinctive nipple shapes, made to adapt to the specific needs of every baby! It's easy to see you why Chicco is so amazing, offering 3 different stages of bottles, all in one kit! This is the perfect present for any expectant mom or new mom, so she can make sure her baby is healthy and happy!

http://www.chiccoshop.com/feeding/gift-sets/naturalfit-all-you-need-starter-set/00080742600070.html


I bet you know someone that that has a toddler or a baby? I think most of us do... Luckily, Chicco has made gift giving easier this year!
