Elizabeth and Clarke Fall - Review

Elizabeth and Clarke is a shirts subscription box service that delivers designer quality shirts to you each season. 

When you sign up you sign up for the next season’s collection, which you can preview on their website. So, I signed up in Summer for the Fall collection. You can select either 1 shirt for $30, 2 for $50, or 3 for $60. I was able to score a deal and get the 3 shirts for $30 instead of $60 via When you preview the seasons collection you will see five shirts to choose from of which you select your picks. I liked that is was only five shirts because sometimes too many options can be a pain. However, all their designs are done in house so, I didnt except a million choices. Quality over quantity right?

A few months later I got my box. 

The information card shows all fives shirts that were offered.

The back of the card is kinda cool. It talks about the design process.
I have to throw in a disclaimer for my horrible photos. It was so hard to get good pictures!

First up is the Liz Lemon! This is the perfect white tee shirt. Super-soft luxury lightweight cotton, with just a hint of stretch. Long enough to wear with leggings. A relaxed fit in the waist and hip, slightly curves in at the waist to neatly tuck in to jeans. Adorable cap sleeve.
color: white
fabric: 35% cotton, 65% microfiber poly
care: machine-washable, dryer-safe

The Lyon! All these tops are so soft and comfy. This is a long sleeve top with an asymmetrical point. This is long enough to wear with leggings and fitted. It is thin so you can layer this for Fall. 

Lastly, is The Taylor! The Taylor is there most popular blouse. It is long sleeved blousy shirt with button on each. It feels like silk but is actually a wrinkle stain resistant fabric.

I adore all my tops. The fabric and design is perfect. The size are on the larger size but, that is perfect for me. They offer returns/exchanges if needed. 

Currently they have their winter collection on their site and they are perfect for but the office and office parties.  At $20 a shirt, Elizabeth and Clarke is a win win.

Julep's October Box - Review

Julep is super on time with their boxes. I feel like I just got the September box and, now on September 30th I receive the October box. 

I get the Modern Beauty box according to my profile.  Which is perfect for me because it is an all-product box and; I really don't need any more nail polishes. I was glad when I noticed one of the two products was a mask!

Here is the box!! With Candy Corn! I actually do not like candy corn because it is way too sweet however, I love seeing it because it reminds me of fall.

Here is the pencil.

Two intensely pigmented colors—carbon black and brown shimmer—that glide on smoothly and blend like a dream.
Features & Benefits of Kajal Eye Glider:
  • Two colors
  • Ideal for inner rims, tightlining, and smoky eyes
  • Blends like a dream—won’t drag or pull on delicate skin
  • Opthamologist-tested
  • Kajal-friendly, round-tipped, high-quality sharpener included

  • One side is a shimmery brown

    And the other side is black. The glides on so easy.

    The Kajal Eye Glider and Sharpener (sorry, not shown) is a really nice liner. I have a million eyeliners from all my subscription boxes and unfortunately, I do not wear liner. Nonetheless, I still think this one was a great product.

    A peel-off mask of gentle kaolin clay and black volcanic ash.
    Features and Benefits of Mask Noir:
  • Black volcanic ash boasts anti-inflammatory and anti-bacterial peptides.
  • Kaolin Clay is as gentle as it is deep-cleaning.
  • Incredibly clean, visibly brightened skin upon removal
  • Enriched with Julep’s proprietary Power Cell Complex™, a trio of skin-boosting superstars:
    1. Rosehip seed oil – a nourishing oil (and natural source of vitamins A and C) that helps to reduce the appearance of wrinkles and post-acne marks. Contains natural fatty acids that bond moisture to skin
    2. Malvaceae Lipid Extract™ – a lipid complex that provides immediate and long-lasting hydration and works to rebuild skin structure from the inside out
    3. Green coffee bean oil – a natural anti-inflammatory that promotes cell turnover

    I really liked this mask it took to about 15 minutes to fully dry and peels off pretty easy. This mask is nice. The regular cost is $32 which I think is kinda costly.
