Eyeliner Vault | Lippie Vault
Can you believe that I haven't owned anything from Colourpop before now? They're so affordable and are stellar quality, I really am surprised it took my sister buying these as Christmas presents for me to try the brand! All I know now is that it will be one I now look out for, and you'll see why when I explain how much I am loving these two vault collections. The Essentially Yours Lippie Stix and Colour Me Obsessed Eyeliner vaults are so fun, colorful, and are perfect for creating a variety of looks. Let's dive in and see how these beauties work!

Black Friday Purchases

 Blue Cardigan | Champagne Shimmer Cami | Basic Double V Tank | Pink Sweater | Sequin Tanks | Rhinestone Booties | Gold Link Ring | Glitter Lip Set |

I took a poll on Instagram a few days back to see if y'all wanted to see my Black Friday purchases or New Years Eve outfit inspiration and it was SO close! Only one vote swayed the decision for today's post. I was about to write both posts up after I realized the things I bought during the sales totally fit under the glitzy vibe of new years! I guess I just naturally have a love for sequins and sparkle because I didn't have new years in mind when buying these haha. So I think those of you who voted for the glamorous and glittery outfit inspo should be satisfied! 

A Little Pick-Me-Up With Babbleboxx

by The Classic Brunette, 12:00:00 AM

This post is sponsored by Babbleboxx. As always, all opinions are my own. Thank you for supporting the brands that support The Classic Brunette!

Although I love to gift others, I can't help but treat myself to a thing or two while I'm shopping for others. This year my friends at Babbleboxx came in clutch with this care package of goodies that I'm very excited to share with you all! The theme of this package was style, beauty, and self care: all of my favorite things! These are the things that I would buy for myself since they're a bit more personal, unless it's for a friend or family member that you really know. So here's to the things that you didn't know you needed 😉

Self Care Gift Guide Under $50

by The Classic Brunette, 12:00:00 AM

 I think we can all agree that we deserve a little self love (and love in general) after this last month! No matter what political views you have, this election was stressful, thanksgiving might not have been as "normal," so it's the perfect time to indulge in something that makes you feel calm and/or extra happy. Christmas is right around the corner so if you don't feel like picking something out for yourself, you can snag a gift for a friend! From skincare to comfy clothes and everything in between, there's always a way to add a little extra comfort and take away stress. You deserve to enjoy yourself, even if the world is a little crazy. 

Mask Etiquette During The Pandemic

by The Classic Brunette, 12:00:00 AM

I thought I would talk about something that's relevant to all of us for this week's blog post. Unfortunately the pandemic here in the US isn't calming down and I've been noticing so many people clearly not following procedures or just not knowing how to be courteous during this time. I'm not perfect and occasionally forget the 6ft rule or I will run into someone while taking out the trash and I forgot to bring a mask, so I wanted to write about how to politely interact with others during this time. I know there are various views on wearing masks, but wearing a mask is a nationwide protocol and I (and the science) believe it will help to limit your risk of infection.
