What I Bought and What I Thought

kurt geiger ozark review

If you follow me on Instagram Stories you know I bought these clog mule shoe thingies from Kurt Geiger. I can't tell if they're hideous or awesome, but they are quite comfortable and easy to slip on and off. I've been looking at clogs for winter but so many are so rustic and bulbous and of textiles that don't really work with my wardrobe. When I saw these I HAD to try them.

And while I am not sure if they're ugly or cool, I'm keeping them and plan to wear them this fall and winter with wide-leg pants and slouchy jeans. And yes, come winter I will be wearing them with socks… the most colorful and random socks I own! I got them at Zappos but the size selection has diminished so here is a link to them also at Nordstrom.

Looking for slip-on shoes to wear out of the house, I also got these loafers from Sam Edelman in white, since it was the only color available in my size and wide width. I already own a pair of white loafers; they aren't slides and they have silver hardware and a croco-embossed finish. I don't really know if I need two pairs so I may end up returning them. But if you're looking for something similar, they're like Gucci without trying too hard to copy Gucci, and are well made and nice enough to wear to a workplace. They come in a range of colors, in wide they have white and a tan kind of color.

With one of my Sephora orders, I got a mini size of Brazillian Bum Bum Cream from Sol de Janeiro. I keep seeing influencers claim this is the BEST body cream it's smells SO GOOD and is SO HYDRATING. And I agree, yes, it is a hydrating product for the body. But the smell… it is intense and it smells like someone other than me. I can't say the smell is bad but it's very intense. Like put it on your legs and wear jeans and someone sitting outside next to you will ask if you're wearing a new perfume. And it's a scent I would not gravitate towards.

If you like vanilla and warm snuggly scents mixed with tropical fruity scents, you may like this. But if you want a high quality body lotion that won't compete with your perfume (or anything else), I can't recommend Nécessaire body lotion enough. And if you use ALISON10 at checkout you get 10% off your order.

Equilibria now has CBD gummies, and they're awesome. They don't have some fake flavor and aren't full of sugar and artificial flavor or color. They are a “pineapple dragonfruit” flavor but it's super subtle, and each gummy has 10mg. The actual ingredient list is: Organic Tapioca Syrup, Organic Cane Sugar, Organic Full-spectrum Hemp Flower Oil (CBD concentrate), Pectin, Organic MCT Oil (derived from coconut), Citric Acid, Sodium Citrate, Natural Flavor, Carnauba Wax, Vegetable Oil, Sunflower Lecithin, Fruit and Vegetable Juice (for color)

If the oil has bothered your stomach or you don't like softgels, this is a great option that kicks in around 30 minutes and is a good amount to just take the edge off, help you fall asleep, reduce inflammation after or before a workout. As always use WARDROBEOXYGEN at checkout on any new orders to save; it's usually 15% off but through the 25th of this month you get 25% off your entire new customer order.

glossier futuredew review

My daughter loves Glossier, and I recently got her some new skincare from there, including FutureDew, which is like a moisturizer, primer, and highlighter in one. She likes it because she doesn't wear makeup but it gives her a bit of a glowy finished look. And I tried it and like it for the same reason. Not greasy, not glittery, just a glow. That's all I have on my face in the photo above. As for the sweater, it's this one from Talbots in Cheerful Pink.

soma robe review

I've had this Soma robe for a while but don't think I've shown it on the blog. It's real silk, beautiful, available up to XXL (I'm wearing an L/XL) and it's on sale for under $100. Get it while it's still in stock!

    Thanks for the green suggestions. I have to be careful with green but I’ve picked up a pair of shoes and a handbag for fall. I also would love an emerald green coat–I had one back in the late 1980s from Casual Corner that had an attached scarf and was just so chic and perfect. I’d love to find it again.

    The Brazilian Bum Bum cream IS intense. I had a full blown allergic reaction to the smell. My skin felt great but wow, the heavy fragrance called for a dose of Benadryl and some migraine meds. And a shower to wash it off. Use caution if you’re scent sensitive.

      The same happened to me! I had to immediately shower again to get the scent off and take medication. The other day at work, someone in my office used heavily scented hand lotion and the scent wafted into my office about 20 feet away. I had to point a fan out the door of my office to blow the smell away. I remembered that I had a nausea inhaler, so I used that and it helped a great deal. I had the thought that just intensely breathing in a scent that I know doesn’t give me a reaction (like the inhaler, Vick’s Vaporub, peppermint oil, etc.) would likely help any time i have this issue. Turns out it was my own paralegal who used Bath & Bodyworks (they’re still around???) lotion. I’m becoming more sensitive to scent because I have been slowly eliminating as many artificially scented products as I can. It can’t be good for your health to place those chemicals on your skin to be absorbed by your body and then breathe in the scents.

        People who use scented lotion or – even worse – desktop air freshener in the cubicle area of my office is a serious pet peeve. It’s only happened a few times and thankfully has been resolved by quietly mentioning it to the department manager. But the snarky side of me thinks, “How clueless can you be?!”

          Do you mean like plug in air fresheners?? Ugh! My office is a gauntlet of those awful essential oil diffusers. There are at least four people in our small office who have them.

    Do you feel like clogs and slides slow you down? I have had 2 pairs and I always feel like I have to be more careful to not walk out of them. So, no running upstairs real quick for a forgotten thin, etc. By the end of the day I want to throw them across the room … til the next time I need shoes and don’t have time to fuss with fasteners.

    That said, the new black ones with rainbow resin-looking buckles shocked me at the price, $175? Maybe that’s what it costs for slides that fit well, that feels more like price tag for low-mid height boots.

      I can’t wear slides for this reason. Allie’s slides resemble Birkenstock clogs, maybe the cork footbed allows for more grip on the foot. They’re not for me. I can’t tell whether I hate them as much as the green pull on low boots I saw another blogger wear with ditzy print dresses. They looked like fishing boots a grandpa would wear.

            Yep you can link! Just one link per comment or it will get caught up in moderation but please. The comments are a space for y’all to connect ❤️

      I have worn tennis-shoe type slip-ons in the summer and liked them, but I can’t see wearing them in the winter up here in Boston. Not warm enough, and you never know when it’ll decide to snow!
