Ask Me Anything!

This summer has been so much busier than I had anticipated.  I was hoping I could have the dressing room all done up for a post this week, but sadly I do not.  I have been busy at work trying to reorganize and clean since we finally finished painting my new dresser and moved it into the room over the weekend.  It looks amazing and I am super excited to share it with you!!  I am just bummed it won't be this week.

I wanted to take this opportunity to start collecting questions for a future post.  If you have anything you want to ask me (nothing is too big or too small) on any topic, leave the question in the comment or email me.  Once I gather some questions I will answer them in a post.  Thanks, y'all!

I hope everyone has a lovely, fun, and safe weekend!

Ipsy Bag - May and June 2016

 Ipsy Bags for May and June 2016 - #Ipsy #IpsyGlamBag #beautybag #beautybox #subscription #beautysubscription #makeup #haircare #skincare #Noyah #TrustFundBeauty #lipgasmlipstick #BeABombshell #MarcAnthony #formulaX #nailpolish #urbandecay #crownbrush #smashbox #organicpharmacy #slmissglam #bellapierre #evanyc

It has been quite a while since I posted an Ipsy review.  Mainly, time gets away from me because I like to try all the products first.  Before I know it, I am way behind on posting about recent bags and that just snowballs.  So now, I am going to do two bags in one post, whether I have used all the products or not.  Hopefully, I can get backlogged posts done because I like the idea of cleaning out my stock of photos I have taken of all my bags/boxes.  We shall see.

If you are unfamiliar with Ipsy, it is a monthly subscription service.  For $10 a month, you get a cute reusable bag and five samples of various products that have been chosen to fit the monthly theme and your beauty profile.  Ipsy tends to carry more drugstore brands, with high-end brands mixed in here and there.  In comparison, Birchbox tends to focus on higher end brands.  Both of these boxes have a mix of skincare, haircare, makeup, fragrance, and nail polish.  I also started getting the Sephora Play box, which also has a mix of products (mostly makeup) and focuses on the higher end brands that Sephora carries.

Reviewing Kiyonna's Moroccan Maxi Wrap Dress

Hailey is staying summer chic in the Moroccan Maxi Wrap Dress by Kiyonna. Fit tips and details on the blog! - #Kiyonna #KiyonnaStyle #KiyonnaPlusYou #CrocsSandal #Crocs #CharmingCharlie #psblogger #plussizeblogger #styleblogger #plussizefashion #plussize #psootd #ootd #plussizeclothing #outfit #spring #summer #fall #style #plussizecasual #maxi #maxidress #wrapdress

It is no secret that I love Kiyonna!  I've been a member of their Blogger Brigade since 2012, which has given me the opportunity to try many styles and silhouettes from the brand.  They carry sizes 10 to 32 and continue to offer wonderful quality pieces time and time again.  You can check out their 2016 Summer Lookbook for an exciting peek at what is to come in the next month or so!

In today's post, I am reviewing a hybrid of two classic styles - a maxi and a wrap dress.  Wrap dresses just won me over in the last year or so (after trying some from Kiyonna, of course).  It is a classic for a reason. Easy to wear, easy to throw on, easy for work, easy for play, easy for looking polished without too much fuss.  And of course, my love for maxi dresses runs deep!  Read on for fit and details on this gorgeous, chevron-printed maxi wrap dress from Kiyonna!

What I Wore: Summer Ready!

Hailey is sprortin' a simple, laid-back look for staying cool and chic in the summer or on vacation! -  #KiyonnaStyle #TorridInsider #Torrid #LaneBryant #Crocs #psblogger #plussizeblogger #styleblogger #plussizefashion #plussize #psootd #ootd #Spring #summer #style #plussizeclothing #plussizecasual #plussizeshorts #coldshoulder

We haven't had the most summer-like weather lately.  It's mostly been cloudy and raining off and on, which I am totally fine with.  I like sunny days that are breezy and fine, but I don't like hot, stifling, sweaty days.  Today, and for the foreseeable future (aka the 10 day forecast), the weather is warming up.  I'm ready to face it in shorts and knit and sandals.  Today's post contains some recent purchases styled together for a look that is summer and vacation ready.

My First Sephora Play! Beauty Bag (May 2016)

 Sephora Play! Beauty Bag (May 2016), featuring products by Origins, Korres, Briogeo, Bite Beauty, Tarte, and Atelier Cologne. - #Sephora #SephoraPlay #beautybag #beautybox #subscription #beautysubscription #makeup #haircare #skincare #Origins #Korres #Briogeo #BiteBeauty #AtelierCologne #tarte

Y'all know by now that I am a makeup/beauty product junkie.  I love trying new things and being aware of the newest products.  Sampling products through beauty subscription boxes has led me to find some seriously great products that work well for me.  But I am always curious.  While I have been subscribed to Birchbox and Ipsy for years now (and have seriously dropped the ball in posting about them on the blog like I initially intended), I was excited when Sephora finally got me off the Wait List for their Play! subscription box.

Read on for details on my first box....
