BEST OF LOFT PICKS MAY 2016

This week, in honor of Memorial Day, everywhere I look there is a sale. I went to a nearby open shopping mall yesterday (because the weather suddenly decided to be semi nice) to pick up some leggings for my youngest. Walking past LOFT, I was drawn inside with the beautiful colors, and patterns I saw when I peeked from the windows. Excited to share my Best of Loft Picks – May 2016 with you today.

I love LOFT for their stylish basics, and well made, affordable trendy pieces that are very wearable. Every season, I always shop from LOFT, and especially love their online store. (more…)

TRUNK CLUB REVIEW MAY 2016

Happy Sunday lovelies! This weekend has been a whirlwind so far. We finally had our family portraits taken on Saturday. It was long due and super fun though coordinating everyone to smile, not close their eyes, and look at the direction of the camera was not easy. Actually the natural, and impromptu poses turned out to be quite lovely. We had brunch with friends today, and I had a great time going through my May Trunk Box choosing which pieces to keep. ( and of course taking pictures to share 🙂 )

I am keeping really fab pieces from this Trunk. Have you read my Trunk Club Reviews before? Here are my two previous reviews with (more…)

ELIZABETH & CLARKE UNSTAINABLE WORKWEAR COLLECTION

Hi lovelies! I am writing to you on a once again RAINY NW day, after so many gorgeous sunny days in a row. It would be an understatement to say the weather has been moody but the packages I received from Elizabeth & Clarke sure boosted mine. <3 The company kindly sent me The James & The Grant, two beautifully designed pieces from the brands newest venture,  Unstainable WorkWear Collection that is on KickStarter right now.

If you are new to TheBoxQueen, and curious about Elizabeth & Clarke’s affordable, high quality (more…)

WANTABLE MAKEUP REVIEW MAY 2016

This past weekend, one of the organizational chores I did at home was taking everything out of my makeup drawers, and throwing away all the older products. Twice a year, I take stock of my makeup collection so I can get rid of expired mascaras ( I change mascaras every couple months but I usually have more than three at the same time), broken eyeshadows, and mostly gone lipsticks.

You probably know by now how much I LOVE trying new beauty products. This clean up process also means adding new products, colors, and makeup trends to my collection which (more…)

BEST SALES OF THE WEEK AND A RUFFLE TOP, WHITE JEANS OUTFIT

Happy Weekend Ladies! Hope everyone had a wonderful week. After I published my May Stitch Fix Review  a few days ago, it got really busy around here. As we are getting closer to June, which marks the end of school year, school activities, field trips start to happen back to back. I volunteered with my youngest daughters class for a morning at a children’s play, got a couple travel plans finalized,& had some home projects finished. It would be an understatement to say I am happy to be able to take a deep breath, sit down, and share this weeks best sales with you lovelies. (more…)

STITCH FIX REVIEW MAY 2016

The day has come! May Stitch Fix marks the 40th box I received from this fun personal styling service I am a huge fan of. With this new milestone, I was lucky to get an amazing box. It was almost as if my lovely stylist wanted to celebrate with me. She completely gets my style, and each month I am having a difficult time choosing what to keep. (Which is ironically a GREAT thing haha)

If you’ve recently discovered TheBoxQueen, and my Stitch Fix Reviews, I encourage you to start your reading from the beginning. I’ve been reviewing Stitch Fix the past couple of years, (more…)

BEST OF NORDSTROM MAY 2016

Summer has fully arrived to the stores, and today I had a couple of hours to myself before it was pick up time for the kids. We met with one of my best friends at Nordstrom, and had a blast trying on clothes. These shopping posts are some of the most fun ones to put together for me. They are right from the dressing room, candid, and spontaneous. Let’s admit it, choosing my best picks from my favorite stores never gets old either. My hope is that they are helpful for you too. <3

TRENDY BUTLER REVIEW AND DISCOUNT CODE

Happy New Week Lovelies. What a weekend it was for us!! We had the best of times at a horse show my daughter competed at on Saturday and came home with some ribbons. Unfortunately the same daughter fractured her wrist playing soccer on Sunday just the next day. 🙁 Today was a day of rushing from doctors to X-rays, and worry over the broken bones. This is life I guess; you need to enjoy every second as there is nothing like the present, and change is constant.

After the quick-paced three days with so many ups and downs, I am happy to be back tonight (more…)

LITTLE LACE BOX APRIL 2016 REVIEW

When I receive shipment notice for Little Lace Box every other month, I instantly feel very curious. Little Lace Box ladies are very skillful in creating a mix of items around a theme. It’s always enjoyable to find out how they explain how the pieces relate to that months theme. In each box, a brochure is included with information about the items, and personal notes from the ladies of LLB.

If you are new to TheBoxQueen, I review Little Lace Box & Serendipity by Little Lace Box. You may want to start your reading from the beginning and you can (more…)

As the seasons change and my outfits get lighter, and brighter, I like to change my makeup too. I realize that one of the most important things for a good makeup application is a clear canvas which in this case is a sparkling face with pores that look tight and tiny.

I’ll share with you today three ways to minimize the appearance of pores. I’ll also show you my pastel color lilac eye make up look that’s perfect for spring & summer.  (more…)

HOW TO WEAR BOLD COLORS & PATTERNS IN YOUR WORKOUT OUTFITS

Hello sunshine; and hello morning runs under a blue sky, and on dry ground. 🙂 Seriously I’ve been running so much on wet sidewalks, and trails this year that I can’t believe I can actually exercise outside without rain drizzling, or pouring above me. (though the weather report says our spring showers are coming back- that’s NW for you!)

Taking advantage of the beautiful day, I wanted to show you my latest cheerful Fitness Look with a printed capri, matched with a green tank & running shoes. Although I wear colorful workout outfits in the winter too, spring and summer inspire me to try even bolder, and brighter pieces. (more…)

You ladies know by now how much I love trying out the latest beauty products and newest technologies in skincare. I’ve also mentioned in recent previous posts that as summer comes closer, I am making some changes & additions to my skincare routine.

I believe that it’s a good idea to reassess your skins needs periodically and have a variety of products in your beauty arsenal for various needs. In my experience, circulating different products every once in a while help facilitate more change in my skin. (more…)

TRUNK CLUB REVIEW APRIL 2016

Happy Weekend Lovelies! How has your weekend been so far? After a week full of days that took us back to the classic, rainy Portland, we had a very welcome, bright, and sunny Saturday. We made sure to fill it with activities. I also spent a part of the evening choosing the pieces I’ll keep from my second Trunk Box;  a new favorite styling service.

If you are new to TheBoxQueen, I started getting Trunk Box’s last month in March. You can find my initial review here.  My stylist Paulina did a wonderful job with my first box, but I think she got to know me much better this month and sent me some wonderful pieces. (more…)
