I’d never heard of Flicker Box before, but apparently it’s a subscription box that delivers handmade candles to your door each month! Sounds like an awesome gift idea!
Right now you can check out this service for less thanks to a new deal at Gilt City. With this offer you can get 3 months of Flicker Box for $59 (normally $102) or 6 months for $99 (normally $175).
Here’s a description of what you could expect to receive with this subscription:
Based in Chicago, Flicker Box sources many of its candles from small, local shops. For example, your box may include premium soy candles from Chicago Candle Co. or Abbey Brown Soap and Candles.
I cannot find information on if there are a set amount of candles they send out each month, but they do say that the value of the box will always exceed the cost of the box.

Yesterday I shared 10 trends for fall 2014, but one thing that I didn’t really cover (other than mentioning capes) is all of the amazing outerwear that’s available right now.
I don’t know if there really are an amazing number of beautiful coats on the market at this moment in time or if I just want all the coats, but man, I feel like I could easily amass a wardrobe of 100 fall coats and jackets and still not have enough.
As with capes, I actually think Scandal’s Olivia Pope is influencing the outerwear market at the moment, as some of her most popular styles are being referenced in designs. Capes, loose fitting coats held together with belts, boxy designs, structured coats… Olivia Pope wore it all last season (in part to help Kerry Washington cover up her pregnancy) and now all of these designs are on the market. Of course Olivia’s trademark coats are white, which I failed to include below, but plenty of those are available as well!
Here are just a few of my favorite coats. Don’t make me choose a favorite – it would be impossible!
1. JOA Blush Long Line Coat – $139 at PiperLime // 2. Patterned Tweed Jacket – $39.94 at Old Navy // 3. T Tahari Marla Wool Wrap Coat – $198 at Amazon // 4. Leather Lapel Collar Biker Jacket – $148 at Goodnight Macaroon // 5. Line & Dot Mr. Darling Overcoat – $143 at Shopbop // 6. BB Dakota Deva Ombre Coat with Faux Leather Belt – $132 at Amazon // 7. Buttoned-Up Boiled Wool Cape – $248 at Ann Taylor
Summer unofficially ended Labor Day weekend, but technically it’s still the season of sun and sand (at least until tomorrow). Fall is on the way, and bringing with it cooler temperatures that will definitively mark the start of the fall fashion season. I know every blogger will say that she loves fall and I’m really no different. I much prefer being cozy to being hot, boots to flip flops, leggings and tunics to shorts, and cute accessories like scarves and gloves to sundresses.
I’m sure many of you have already updated your wardrobes for fall since I’m a little late posting about this, but if you still have some shopping to do, here are 10 Fall 2014 Trends to Try this Fall:
Whether it’s a boxier buffalo plaid, flannels, or just straight up traditional plaid, plaid is going to be everywhere this fall and most of it is going to incorporate red in some way since it’s one of the season’s biggest colors.
1. Bar Crossbody Bag in Plaid – $155 at Kate Spade Saturday // 2. Red Plaid Umbrella – $24.95 at Gap // 3. Equipment Signature Plaid Shirt – $270 at Net-a-Porter // 4. XOXO Plaid Pencil Skirt – $50 at JCPenney // 5. (Maternity) Buffalo Plaid Flannel Shirt – $29.94 at Old Navy // 6. BB Dakota Rosanna Plaid Jacket – $91 at Lulu’s // 7. Woven Plaid Scarf – $6 at Forever21 // 8. Debutante Plaid Wristlet – $128 at Henri Bendel // 9. Miia Printed Smoking Slipper – $64.95 at Sole Society // 10. Buffalo Plaid Rain Boots – $29.99 at Target
A few years ago I fell in love with everything houndstooth after seeing that it’s a favorite of Alabama fans (Roll Tide!). It made me wish that Michigan had a “pattern” that fans could wear to games in addition to all things maize and blue. Thankfully, houndstooth is a pattern that everyone can wear this fall as it is seriously everywhere.
1. Houndstooth Coat – $189.99 at Mango (on sale for $99.99) // 2. Olsenboye Houndstooth Leggings – $46 at JCPenney (currently on sale for $26.99) // 3. Houndstooth Print Long Sleeve Blouse – $99 at Tommy Hilfiger (currently on sale for $69.99) // 4. Calvin Klein Cap Sleeve Houndstooth Knit Sheath – $134 at Macy’s // 5. Network Pouch – $24.99 at Herschel Supply Co. // 6. Houndstooth Scarf – $65 at J.Crew // 7. Houndstooth Print Enamel Bangle – $58 at C. Wonder // 8. Houndstooth Ballet Flats – $17.99 at Sears // 9. MICHAEL Michael Kors Medium Selma Satchel – $328 at Nordstrom // 10. Superga Houndstooth Sneakers – $75 at Shopbop
Here’s something awesome: Apparently Walmart is now offering their own beauty subscription box that appears to be very similar to the one occasionally offered by Target!
The Walmart Fall Beauty Box is free, but shipping costs $5. The box will come packed with samples and full-size products that would retail for much more than $5!
Curious to see what’s inside? Glitter Gloss Garbage shared the contents of her box, which contained 3 full-sized products and 4 samples! Click here to check out her post.

Thanks to Glitter Gloss Garbage for the heads up!
We have reached the third and final week of Ulta’s 21 Days of Beauty, but don’t worry – there are still PLENTY of fabulous deals to be found this week!
Here’s what’s available today (September 22, 2014):
Bliss Fabulous Foaming Face Wash typically costs $24, but today you can grab it for $12 per bottle, which is a stock up now price!
I LOVE Bliss products, but they’re typically out of my everyday price range so I have only tried a few of their items. I have been using this face wash for a few days though and I have to say that it’s pretty rad. I have really sensitive skin so I’m always a little wary to try new face products, but this face wash is formulated for all skin types so it hasn’t irritated my skin. The formula contains exfoliating beads, so this face wash really does double duty. It’s awesome for people who don’t have a lot of time to devote to their skincare routine.
Bliss Fabulous Foaming Face Wash seems to get great reviews everywhere, and I saw a recommendation that this is an awesome product to use in conjunction with a Clarisonic, which you can bet I’ll be trying tonight!
Getting this face wash for $12 is already an awesome deal, but if you spend $35 or more on Bliss products you’ll also receive – I believe – two free samples (I’m not certain if you’ll receive both samples for free or only one)! You’ll receive Grapefruit Aloe Body Butter and Firm Baby Firm Cream Gel.
While most of the ULTA 21 Days of Beauty Deals are valid both online and in-stores, those of you shopping online today are the only ones that will be able to purchase Japonesque Color Liquid Light for $15 (normally $28).
Liquid Light dresses skin in an illuminating veil of radiance. This innovative light-reflecting liquid glides on to refresh the skin and enhance the complexion’s natural glow – creating a beautiful shimmering incandescence that “lights skin from within.” Translucent, weightless formula gives instant radiance and luminosity to the complexion and can be used alone as a make-up base or as a highlighting accent to shape and lift the facial contours.
Japonesque Color Liquid Light is available in three different shades.
Japonesque products also have a free gift with purchase deal available! With any $30 Japonesque Color Cosmetics purchase you will receive a free full-size Eye Defining Pencil!
While the daily specials are awesome, don’t forget to check out the ULTA website for a full list of the 21 Days of Beauty ongoing deals that are available throughout the length of the promotion.
While items included in ULTA’s 21 Days of Beauty promotion are excluded, you can use ULTA coupon code “201392” at checkout to take $3.50 off any $10+ ULTA purchase! If you prefer to do your shopping in-stores, you can also print out this ULTA coupon to redeem in-stores.
ShopatHome.com is offering 5% cash back on all purchases made at ULTA.com this week, which is a fab opportunity to stock up on the 21 Days of Beauty deals for even less! Their typical cash back amount is 3% at ULTA.
If you’re shopping at ULTA, don’t forget to register for ULTAmate Rewards, their free beauty rewards program.
Disclosure: I was provided with a sample of Bliss Fabulous Foaming Face Wash, but all opinions expressed above are my own.
Well, you win some and you lose some, I suppose. I really don’t have much to say about this month’s box from Beauty Box 5, as I found nearly every item to be a dud.
Here’s what I received in the September Beauty Box 5:
My Beauty Spot Nail Polish – Full Size Product! I normally don’t mind receiving full-size bottles of nail polish, but I would never consider wearing this color. It’s just not my thing.
Sally Hansen Toe Spacers – Full Size Product! Yes, this is two full-size products in a row, but it’s hard to get excited about toe spacers. (Also, I’m pretty sure BB5 has sent toe spacers before.)
Just a quick reminder that you can currently get a FREE small coffee from McDonalds! This offer is valid everyday during their morning breakfast hours until September 29!
Those who prefer Dunkin’ Donuts will want to make a note in their calendars that the double D will also be offering a free medium cup of its new hot Dark Roast Coffee at participating Dunkin’ Donuts restaurants nationwide on September 29, aka National Coffee Day!
While no purchase is necessary to get the free coffee at either location, it may be worth calling ahead to make sure your local restaurant is participating.
