So it's already November (crazy!) and that means two things... 1) Holiday cups are out at Starbucks and 2) there are a ton of new holiday beauty launches that have me super excited and my bank account slightly terrified. In the spirt of sharing, I've rounded up a little wish list of my favorites. Which limited edition holiday sets have caught your eye?

Also, an important PSA... Sephora's annual Beauty Insider sale starts TODAY!  From Nov 10-15, you can get 15% off EVERYTHING if you're a Beauty Insider (this is free, so you should be) and 20% off if you're VIB.  Of course, if you're insane like me and you're a Rouge VIB, then this is all old news because you probably already shopped the pre-sale this past weekend (and your bank account is also probably slightly terrified).


Not sure why it took me so long, but I finally tried Honest Beauty. Maybe I'm a sucker for marketing and the chic, beautiful packaging of this line. Maybe it's the message behind the brand. Maybe I'm just slightly obsessed with Jessica Alba. Regardless, the range was calling my name at Target a few weeks ago, so I thought I'd finally try it out for myself.

Here's the good, the great, and the one I could do without...


For me, the past two months have looked like MDW > SEA > MDW > EWR > MDW > ORD > LAX > ORD > MDW > CVG > MDW > ORD > BUF > ORD... phew! All this travel has me eyeing a few accessories that make packing and flying so much easier.

QuietComfort® 35 Acoustic Noise Cancelling® Bluetooth® Headphones II - Ok, so this one is a bit of a splurge and a total wish list item, but once you try these headphones you won't be able to travel the same way again. My husband has these, and I'm always super jealous of him when we fly. You don't realize how loud airplane sounds really are until you have these babies to tune them out.

Vera Bradley Blush & Brush Makeup Case - I'm a bit of a germaphobe when it comes to travel (and life), so keeping my makeup brushes clean is key. This bag has an exterior compartment for brushes to keep them separate from your makeup kit. It's also lined with laminated cotton, so you can quickly wipe it down between uses.
