Younique Macara...Is it even worth it?!

Hey, Gals!

I'm so sorry about the lack of internet presence last week...it was a crazy one for us! I couldn't catch up so I decided i'd just start fresh today.

I'm sure you've seen this mascara ALL OVER the internet, but my friend Lora over at Lashes to the Moon was sweet enough to send me over some Younique products, so I thought i'd give you my 100% unbiased review, and a quick little demo on the mascara everyone seems to be talking about ;)

Have you used it before? Do you love it/hate it? I'm so interested to hear your thoughts!

Until Next Time,
xo Kylie

Turtle Neck

Tutle Neck- Target (sooo soft!) Sold out but similar here // Skirt: Choies also love this! // Pumps: Nine West // Earrings: Charlotte Russe (similar) // Necklace: Perry St. Via Rocksbox

Happy Friday, Gal's!

This is what an outfit shoot looks like when it is 12932 below zero and windy and you basically feel like you aren't wearing pants. So why would you wear such an outfit if you were freezing to death, Kylie? Because. I dont know what else to wear a tutle neck with and tights make my legs look stumpy. #truth Everytime the wind blew my bun all over the place and shot up my skirt, I thought my lady parts were literally going to freeze off...but it was worth it...so I didn't look stumpy ;)

This black midi is one of my favorite skirts ever. I have the exact same one in Red which was just perfect for our Christmas Cards last year. It's the girliest-most over the top style that I just love.
Speaking of turtle-necks...I seriously don't know what to wear them with. This is the softest comfiest sweater, but  I feel like it needs to be balanced with something super feminine like a poofy skirt and sparkly necklace to work with my style. 

This sparkly necklace is just PERFECT! I've worn it every day since I received it in my Rocksbox. It's so sparkly and the collar shape is adorable! You have 10 days left in February to use my code kyliexoxo for your first month of Rocksbox totally FREE! If it's free, it's for me. :)

We've been living in Arctic Tundra all week, so i'm hoping for a slight warm-up this weekend. This winter body needs some sun. And maybe a Zumba class or two while i'm at it!

Hope you ladies have the most amazing weekend!

If you like this look, you can shop it below.

Until Next Time,

Gym Bag Essentials

“This post is part of a social shopper marketing insight campaign with Pollinate Media Group® and DripDrop®, but all my opinions are my own. #pmedia #DrinkDripDrop #DripDropHydrates http://my-disclosur.es/OBsstV

Happy Monday, friends!

It' a snowy Monday here, and i'm having a slow-go at the morning before trying to navigate the snowy roads. I thought that we might get lucky and have a February full of 60 degree days, but my luck just isn't that grand (or else I would have been one of those 3 people who won the power ball!)

Last week on instagram (@absolutelyarkansas) I mentioned that I had started taking Pilates and Barre classes on my lunch break, but that I totally had to rethink my gym bag! Between driving to the gym, changing, working out, then getting back into office clothes and making myself presentable, I need products in my gym bag that are going to get me in and out in record time!

Must Haves:

  • 1. Headphones! I wish that I had some amaze-balls Beats by Dre, but these we picked up at Walmart for seriously 15 dollars and I love them!
  • 2. A cute waterbottle is a must. This one is glass which I love, because I can quickly rinse it and throw it back in my bag.
  • 3. Obviously a hairbrush is necessary for taming my sweaty locks ;)
  • 4. Mac Fix+ is the perfect refresher to make my skin glow, without looking like I just got all sweaty ;)
  • 5. Makeup wipes are important for touching up my makeup, but I will also use it to "sponge bath" so I don't stink up my cubicle. :) 
  • 6. DripDrop! Have y'all tried this? It will replenish you in a snap, and tastes so great too!
  • 7. Dry shampoo. I've mentioned before that NYM dry shampoo is my holy grail, and it adds the perfect amount of volume while absorbing and sweat that might have happened in the gym,
  • 8. I always pack a little makeup bag for touchups...see below!

In my makeup bag I add some double-duty products so that I can refresh my look without having to pack my entire vanity. Tarte Amazonian Clay Foundation  is mattifying and full coverage while being so easy to apply. I also use a brightening concealer quickly patted under my eye to brighten up my entire face. With a little lip stain on my lips and cheeks, i'm ready to head back to work!

A cute bag never hurts either. :)

The most important thing I can do for myself after a sweaty workout is replenish and hydrate with DripDrop. Did you know when you're exercising you can lose up to a half gallon of your hydration through sweat? Woah! Thats a ton. The main electrolyte you lose is salt, and most sports drinks claim to replenish those electrolytes, when in reality they've added tons of sugar and reduced the sodium which doesn't aid in replenishing you at all, and adds sugar-calories you don't want after you just worked out!

DripDrop tastes just like lemonade (it also comes in a tasty berry flavor!) and it comes in these super convenient little packs to just mix into your water bottle and chug on your way back home/work. I've noticed since drinking DripDrop after a workout, i'm not as shaky and sluggish come afternoon. I find myself feeling like my body is truly replenished and I don't need a mid-afternoon dehydration nap.

You can purchase DripDrop in the baby aisle at CVS, and even better, print out this coupon (good through 2/21) for $1.00 off your purchase! (while supplies last) Let me know if you love it!

What things are a must in your gym bag? I'm always switching it up, so i'd love to hear what you can't work-out without!
