Hello, my friends!  Today I'm bringing you a review and look at my January and February Sephora Play! boxes.  I know I am behind again in sharing these with you, so I will be back-dating past reviews for the end of last year.  Sephora Play! is another monthly subscription box with five samples of makeup, skincare, and/or haircare, and a fragrance sample.  The box is $10 a month.  The products are all items that Sephora carries, so they are easy to shop for if you decide you want a full-size product.  Each box comes with a fold out pamphlet with information on each product and tips on how to use it.  And if you visit a store and take in your PLAY! card sent with each box, you can earn 50 extra points with the purchase of a full-size item.

They currently have an on-going off again, on again Wait List.  You join the Wait List with your email address and will be notified via email when the list is open and you can sign up.  I have been really happy with this subscription so far.  Although I love each subscription I get for various reasons, right now I think Sephora is my favorite out of the three I am subscribed to (Birchbox, Ipsy, Sephora).

Let's get to reviewing!

Reviewing Kiyonna's Promenade Top

In today's post Hailey reviews the Promenade Top from Kiyonna, a soft knit top perfect for spring, summer, and travel! Hailey also reviews the Denim Crop by Melissa McCarthy and Dansko Belle Blue Madras Sneakers. - #Kiyonna #KiyonnaStyle #KiyonnaPlusYou #LaneBryant #MelissaMcCarthy #seven7 #tiedye #psblogger #plussizeblogger #styleblogger #plussizefashion #plussize #psootd #ootd #plussizeclothing #outfit #spring #summer #style

I'm always looking forward to seeing what styles Kiyonna (sizes 10-32) introduces for the spring and summer.  While they always bring classic silhouettes in pretty colors year round, with festive frocks and interesting details thrown in, I enjoy their use of patterns and color that pop up in the warmer months. 

I'm a long time fan of the Promenade Top, so I am really happy to be sharing a review of the new Indigo Tie Dye version, with a little review of these denim capris by Melissa McCarthy Seven7 and my new Dansko sneakers thrown in. Enjoy!

My Favorite Travel Accessories and Sunscreen

My Favorite Travel Accessories and Sunscreen - #COOLA #Supergoop #sunscreen #travel #vacation #travelaccessories #whattopack

Today, in the first of many Maui-related posts, I am talking about some of my favorite travel accessories.  This list includes packing tools, makeup and beauty bags and containers, travel bags, hair tools, and a few miscellaneous items.  I'm also going over my favorite face and body "healthier" sunscreens that we took on our trip.

Outlander at Emerald City Comicon 2017

Outlander at Emerald City Comicon in Seattle Recap, with stops at The Whisky Bar and Blueacre Seafood. - #ECCC #ECCCOutlander #Outlander #samheughan #caitrionabalfe #seattle #thewhiskybar #blueacreseafood

I'm nursing a sickness I picked up at Comicon or that Sean possibly brought home from work.  Basically, I feel super run down, scratchy throat, stuffed nose, no focus.  I rarely get sick, so when I am it really kicks my butt and also makes me really mad.  But I'm trying to push through and get a few things done at least.

In today's post, I am recapping my whirlwind weekend in Seattle for Emerald City Comicon.  Sean and I went to the con on Friday, March 3rd, so I could participate in all the Outlander-related goodness.  I found out the lead actors of Outlander, Sam Heughan and Caitriona Balfe, were going to be at the con via a Facebook video a few days before we left for our vacation in January.  As I have become quite Outlander obsessed, I looked at Sean and said, " I have to go. I just have to."  Seattle is roughly three hours away, so it isn't like it is that far in the scheme of things.  We snatched up all the tickets we would need for the event and booked our hotel right away.  And then suddenly the day was here.

In today's post Hailey reviews the Kelsey Flounce Top from Kiyonna, a multi-way top that can be worn tied in front or as a tunic length piece!- #Kiyonna #KiyonnaStyle #KiyonnaPlusYou #Eloquii #XOQ #denimskirt #crocs #psblogger #plussizeblogger #styleblogger #plussizefashion #plussize #psootd #ootd #plussizeclothing #outfit #winter #spring #summer #fall #style

Hello!!  I'm so happy to be back with an outfit post this week!  It has been a slow blog month as I transition back from vacation and work on getting organized, but I have so many things I am excited to share with y'all.  March should allow me more time to get to those things and post a bit more.  Thanks for your continued friendship!

In today's post, I'm reviewing the Kelsey Flounce Top from Kiyonna!  When it was time to make a decision about my next feature, I had to choose this top.  I loved the Sangria color and flirty ruffle; and I also knew exactly how I wanted to wear it with that cute casual tie front.  So get ready for spring fashion and read over my review of the Kelsey Flounce Top!
