scarf // tee // jeans // boots

Hey guys!  Happy Monday and HAPPY HALLOWEEN!  

One thing I LOVE about Fall is busting out my scarves!  Although it's not quite scarf weather YET here in Texas, you better believe I have them out an ready!  I love this plaid blanket scarf from such a cute shop called ILY MIX. You can check out their huge selection of blanket scarves here.  I also have my eye on this one and this one
I love the versatility of blanket scarves because you can wear them as I have pictures or like a traditional scarf or you can just wrap yourself up in one! 
What is your favorite fall accessory?

Rocksbox: A Jewelry Subscription Service

Guess what guys!  It's FRIDAY! We made it to the weekend!  This week has been a rough one.  I'm stillllll sick and still cooped up in the house with a very active 3 year old.  Londyn is going stir crazy so I'm really excited that the weekend is here.  It's going to be beautiful weather, and she and her daddy can burn all the energy she's been conserving while we've been on lockdown.

Something that did brighten my day was receiving my very first Rocksbox in the mail so I wanted to tell you guys all about it.  Plus....I have a pretty sweet coupon code that's going to allow you to try it for free!

So what is Rocksbox??? To keep it short and simple, it's a jewelry monthly subscription service. Once you sign up, you take a quick survey to let your stylist know what you like, what you don't like and you can even browse items and  add them to your wishlist! In your Rocksbox, you receive 3 pieces of jewelry to use as long as you want.  Once you are ready to change things up, you send it back in the prepaid envelope and you will receive 3 new pieces.  You can send your items back to switch them out as often as you like and if you absolutely love something and can't bear to part with it, you can purchase it at a discounted price. Brilliant...right!

I received these gorgeous House of Harlow 1960 triangle ear jacket earrings that I'm obsessing over, the Elisa Kendra Scott Necklace in Turquoise and this Gorjana Double Bar Ring in my first shipment!

It's only $19/month and Rocksbox is kind enough to offer to my readers your first month absolutely FREE!  Just enter promo code: lovinglondynxoxo at checkout!

Let me know if you end up checking it out and I hope you have a great weekend!
Thanks so much for stopping by!

The Perfect Lightweight Camo Jacket

Hey guys!  Happy Monday!  I was so excited when I received this jacket in the mail because it was EXACTLY what I was hoping it was!  Not to mention, it's only around $30 bucks! I was a little nervous because it's "one size" but it fits absolutely perfect!  It's extremely lightweight which is perfect since we are technically still feeling some summer time temps in Texas.  I am super excited about a "cold front" coming through at the end of this week which should  drop our temps to the 70's!

And this criss crossed tee is quickly becoming a favorite!  I had my eye on it during the NSale but I let it slip through my fingertips.  It's back in stock though and  comes in a ton of colors!  I can't wait to pair it with cardigans and jackets once it starts to actually feel like fall!  

I hope you guys have a great week ahead!  I've been cooped up with bronchitis all week so I'm hoping this week brings me some feel better vibes

Thank so much for stopping by!

Dainty Layers Jewelry

Hi Everyone! Happy Monday!  It's finalllly starting to feel like fall around here, and by that I mean it's in the lower 80's.  (insert rolling eye emoji)  But hey, I'll take it!

If you have followed me for a few months you know that I LOVE personalized, delicate necklaces that can be layered.  Don't get me wrong, I love a great statement necklace but 95% of the time, you will see me wearing necklaces like this.  I received this necklace c/o Dainty Layers Jewelry and am wearing the Layered Triangle Necklace. This necklace definitely caught my eye because I have nothing like it.  I love the uniqueness of the triangle necklace.  Anything can be personalized if you choose (I have a "j" stamped on the triangle) and you can choose different styles like gold filled, sterling silver or rose gold, and different lengths as well.    Another thing that makes this necklace super versatile and unique is they are separate necklaces so you can wear them together or by themselves or mixed with other pieces you already have.

 I already have my eye on THIS NECKLACE too and I think it would be so cute to get Londyn's date of birth stamped on THIS NECKLACE

Her packaging is so cute and personalized and I love the quote that came with the necklace.
"In this life, we cannot always do great things,
 but we can do small things with great love." - Mother Teresa.  
I'm kind of a sucker for packaging and small details like that! 

Definitely give her shop a look at!  I love giving personalized jewelry for gifts, so with Christmas coming up, I know I'll be making several purchases for friends and family!  Would also be a great gift for bridesmaids!
Here is all of her info so you can follow her on social media for specials, new items and discounts!

Top Mascara Must-Haves

Happppppy Friday!  To celebrate the weekend, I thought I would share with you all my favorite, tried and true mascaras.  Now call me a mascara junkie, hoarder, whatever it may be, but I am always, ALWAYS on the hunt for the latest and greatest mascara.
Now, there are a few things I look for in a mascara....
1) it's gotta be buildable
2) it can NOT make me look like i have tarantulas coming out of my eyeballs
3) it's gotta give me major length and volume
(i'm not asking for too much, now am I) ;)

With that being said, I have 3 that are my top, go-to, never fail me, must have mascaras. I know when I reach for these, they are going to deliver and do exactly what I need them to do!
So lets dive right in to my mascara stash!

Before we get into the actual "mascaras", I wanted to talk about this primer. Now, I've never been a "lash primer" kind of gal, but I got this as a sample and let me say, I am HOOKED!  It makes such a huge difference in the length and volume of my lashes.  And it's not overly white, like some primers can be,  which can make it difficult to cover up with your mascara.  The color is very subtle, but the your results definitely won't be!  I'm definitely picking this up in a full size when I run out.  
P.S. - why don't they just make lash primer black??

Top 3 Favorite Mascaras

Now this one is probably my most used and favorite!  You can  apply layer after layer after layer and it will NEVER clump up on you! It adds so much volume and I love the applicator brush.  It doesn't smudge one bit either.  When I start to get low, I freak out and hurry and order another because I never want to be without it. With that being said, I ordered the waterproof version for our vacation we took in July and it was sadly a bust BUT the regular mascara is a MUST!

This mascara does exactly what it says in the name....MAJOR VOLUME!  It makes my lashes super  fluttery looking and the black color is supppppper rich and dark. I've even been asked if I was wearing false lashes when I wore this one.  Sometimes, I even apply the Too Faced - Better than Sex Mascara and this one over it for a little extra umph!  Love, Love, Love this one too!

Now this one is my more "natural look" go to mascara.  On me, it doesn't give me a ton of volume but it definitely makes up for it in the length department!  I do, however, use this one everyday for my lower lash line!  The brush is PERFECT to get those smaller lashes and it coats them perfectly and evenly! A drugstore alternative for this mascara that I also love is this one

So there you have it!  My favorite mascaras of all of right now :)
What are some of your must-haves so I can try them out as well?  I've also been wanting to try THIS mascara.  

Hope you all have a great weekend.  Also,  my thoughts and prayers are with Florida and everyone affected by Hurricane Matthew.  Please stay safe my friends! xoxo
