I’m wearing three of my #nsale purchases in this outfit and I tried on just a few items in store which I reviewed further down this post.

I’ve been living in dresses this summer but I tried to wear jeans out last weekend and I ended up coming home to change. I will be sad when dress weather is no more since I don’t miss waistbands even if the jeans or leggings are stretchy.

This navy floral print maxi dress is by Max Studio. I have a few dresses by this brand and I love their choice of prints and flattering styles. The v-neck is deep but the ruffles along the neckline are very flattering and add a bit more coverage.

I love this denim jacket and Kut From The Kloth has a lot of other washes available here.

This Amazon seller reached out to me for a collaboration but I ordered this dress myself in order to assess their fit and quality. The dress is a very loose and flowy fit (I have a 28″ waist) but do I like this floral print and it’s also available in other pretty prints. When I lift my arms I can see the side of my bra through the arm holes so the dress is best paired with a jacket or cardigan. The dress is fully lined so it’s not too sheer. Size S has a 36″ waist and it’s 35″ total length.

I found these comfortable grey walking sneakers last weekend for $39.99 at T.J. Maxx. I took my usual size. I was able to wear them out without any break in period.

Zella Gwen Ponte Knit Romper, size XSZella Gwen Ponte Knit Romper, size XS | Click here to view the clip from my try-on

I found this romper near the other Zella items but it was not part of the #nsale. Size XS fit me well and the arm holes weren’t too generous so I hope it will go on sale. It fits me better than this similar Amazon romper which I tried in size small and size medium by using my monthly Amazon gifting code (the Amazon version had a short rise in the bottom shorts portion of the romper that was uncomfortable for me in size small but the arm holes of size medium were too generous).

Zella Alyce Pullover, size XSZella Alyce Pullover, size XS | Zella Restore Soft Pocket Joggers, size XS | Click here (sweatshirt) and here (sweatpants) to view the clips from my try-on

I tried on both the sweatshirt and pants in XS. I’m 5′ 2.5″ and 113 pounds. I don’t mind an oversized fit but the sweatshirt has a weird slouch on the sides that isn’t flattering. The sweatpants were a petite friendly inseam but they gave the appearance of an odd crotch from the front view while the loose fit wasn’t flattering on me from behind either.

I was considering one of the Barefoot Dream blankets but after seeing how many my local store had piled in the fitting rooms I changed my mind.

I received the rest of my #nsale order which included the now sold out RevitaLash serum (set of two 2.0 ml tubes). I started using it right away even though I didn’t finish the second tub of the NeuLASH serum (set of two 3.2 ml tubes) since it didn’t give me any significant results. Hopefully I’ll have better results to report back with RevitaLash next anniversary sale.

Good hair day thanks to AQUIS hair towelGood hair day thanks to AQUIS hair towel (also make up free since the pandemic)

My favorite recent find is this AQUIS hair towel which I got for $9.99 at T.J. Maxx (you might also find them at Marshalls and Homegoods since they’re all part of TJX companies). At this price I went back and I found a few more to give out as presents. I also tried their turban style hair towel but I prefer their waffle textured rectangular microfiber towel. The turban style hair towel’s elastic is very tight while the fit is lumpy/awkward and it’s also too big for my thin/fine hair so it didn’t really dry my hair well. My hair is noticeably smoother (less frizzy as seen here) when I use the AQUIS hair towel while I apply all of my moisturizers and SPF in the mornings before finishing my hair with the blow dryer.

About 10 minutes using the AQUIS hair towel cuts down on the time I need to blow dry my hair. One morning I was caught up doing something and my hair was almost dry after using it for 20+ minutes since I only had to blow dry my hair for a few minutes. In comparison, if I wrap and partially dry my hair with a normal bath towel then I end up with frizzy, limp hair. Overall I’m pleased to be able to purchase this hair towel that I’ve seen other beauty bloggers rave about for less than the retail price.

Thanks for stopping by!
