Summer Trends: Pop poms and Tassels

I don’t know about you but my Instagram feed has recently been filled with colorful blouses dotted in pom poms and tassels. I am SO in love with this trend! The more color the better in my opinion but there are also many great options that are more subdued.¬†Below I have linked many of my favorite pieces (tops, bottoms, accessories and shoes!) that I absolutely love and I think you will too! If you know of any other great places to find these trendy summer items, please let us all know in the comments below!

Red Dress Boutique

This boutique is a bit pricey but I had to include some of their pieces!¬†Boutiques have¬†been the place that I have always thought of when I heard the words pompoms and tassels for years. So, it¬†only seemed right to look to the professionals for this trend! Their clothing is so unique and unlike anything that you’ll see anywhere else; which is why I assume they charge more. However,¬†I do love this store and definitely think it is worth the splurge for these items!

May Ipsy Glam Bag Review


I love the design of the bag this month! I thought a travel theme was very fun and the bag is absolutely gorgeous. (I took this month’s picture on a pool floaty to try and stay with the vacation theme but you can’t even really tell – haha!). I love that it snaps shut to look like an envelope. I will definitely be reusing this bag in the future!

BellaPierre Cosmetics Nude Gel Lip Liner Pencil

IMG_3193 IMG_3194

I have heard rave reviews about this pencil on YouTube so I was very excited to receive it in this month’s bag. I am totally in love with this pencil! It is creamy, extremely pigmented, long lasting, and doesn’t dry out my lips. It is also supposedly water proof which I will be testing soon! I will definitely be purchasing more of these in the future!

Full size $18

FORMULA 10.0.6 Pores Be Pure Skin – Clarifying Mud Mask

IMG_3185 IMG_3186

Most mud masks I’ve used in the past are black or brown so I was actually quite surprised when this one came out white! I am a big fan of masks so I am always game to try something new. This one was nice but nothing special.

Full size $6.99 for 3.4 ounces                             Sample Size: $2.05 for 1 ounce

Pacifica Natural Mineral Coconut Eye Shadow Trio

IMG_3181 IMG_3182

I wasn’t sad about getting this eye shadow this month but not that excited either. The colors are all shimmery so I won’t be able to use them for one complete look (since I prefer to have mattes as well). However, I do like this trio. The pigmentation is nice and it is long lasting but I just don’t see myself reaching for it as much as I hoped.

Full sized: $12

PEEK Beauty Nom Nom Natural Lip Plumping Balm in Miracle

IMG_3183 IMG_3184

I wasn’t sure what to think about this balm when I tried it for the first time. I have never tried anything like it but was happily surprised that it did give a nice color to the lips. It didn’t burn my lips like some lip plumpers but I also saw no change in my lip size whatsoever. I like wearing this balm on a more natural makeup day but don’t expect it to magically make your lips bigger or fuller.

Full sized: $22* ¬† ¬†(I could not find the amount of product that is actually in this product sold off the PEEK Beauty website. The packaging looks exactly the same but I’m not 100% sure if the sample I received was full sized or not. However, I am assuming it is for the sake of a price comparison)

Shashbox Cosmetics – X-Rated Mascara

IMG_3187 IMG_3192


I have to be completely honest here… I hate this mascara. It makes my lashes so clumpy and the formula is so wet that I constantly have smearing under my eyes. I will not be using this product again. However, I do absolutely love Smashbox Full Exposure mascara which seems to be the exact opposite of the one I received in my bag this month. I read a lot of reviews saying how much people love this mascara so maybe I got a bad one? Not sure… let me know if you have this mascara what you think!!

Full Sized: $22 at 0.3 ounces                             Sample Size $7.33 at .1 ounces

Check out Smashbox here

Total price I paid for the bag: $10

Total value of the bag this month: $61.38

I am happy with this month’s bag! I would have been happy if all I had gotten was the lip liner which in itself paid for the whole bag and more!
