Ladies, you may have noticed that I'm a fan of subscription boxes.  I've tried quite a few of them, but I'm always looking for the newest ones to check out.  Enter Rose War Panty Power - if the name doesn't intrigue you than this review (and discount code) will so read on...
Rose War Panty Power March Box c/o

Let's face it, there's a certain time of month that no one looks forward to.  This monthly subscription box is meant to "empower you during that magical time of month."  Each box is filled with 2 cute pairs of undies, pick-me-up gifts, and 14 organic pads and/or tampons customized to your preferences through a brief quiz!

First off, a girl can never have too many undies.  The pairs that I received are super cute and are the softest things ever.

And of course the necessities!  The box can be customized with pads, tampons or a mix of both.  I'm happy to see organic products in this box.

Each box also comes with some extras, like beauty, skincare and chocolate samples. Befine is one of my favorite subscription box discoveries so I was happy to see this!

You can get 50% off your first box using code RWPP50!  

I've become a huge fan and this is a box I would get again.  The products are good quality all useful items!  I've also been reading up on the benefits of using organic pads/tampons rather than traditional options and they are so much better for you.  Think chemical free, softer material, and hypoallergenic among other benefits!

The subscription is $25.20 plus shipping per month and you get a value of $60+ per box! Be sure to secure the May box now before it sells out!

Spring can be so unpredictable, which means it can be hard to dress for the weather.  Layers are definitely my best friend during this transition of seasons, as seen above!

The one staple that is a constant throughout the year is denim!  I am always looking for denim with a cute twist or detail that stands out, and this step hem pair is the newest to join my collection.  The hem allows for showing off cute heels (or sandals!)  I love the wash on this pair from Old Navy and it's super comfy too which means it's been on major repeat.

As much as I love pairing my denim with a white tee, I equally love it with a classic black top.  This turtleneck is one of the comfiest things I own and is so light, so it's another great transition piece that's perfect for layering.  It also made a great backdrop for this beautiful necklace from Truly Deer.  If you're looking for unique baubles, definitely check her Etsy page - I'm already trying to figure out which piece I want next.

And finally, no spring look is complete without a cute coat.  The leopard coat's days are numbered as it's more of a winter piece, but there are more options in my closet just waiting to be worn as it gets warmer.

Guys, I recently experienced my first ever facial!  I had no idea what to expect and I won't lie, I was definitely nervous about doing anything to my face.  However I knew I was in good hands at 3000 BC Center City.
Before we get into my experience, how gorgeous is this spa?!  This is 3000 BC's second location (the first being in Chestnut Hill) and I'm so glad for this new spot.  They do offer different services at the locations so be sure to check their site before stopping in.
The first stop of the day was to get a Visia Face Analysis.  This handy machine analyzes various factors on your skin to determine relative skin age.  This really opens your eyes to any damage your skin may have.
Here's my analysis.  It was a quick and easy process, and I was happy to see my skin is doing great (I'll be sharing my morning and nightly skincare routines soon so I can share my secrets!)  The great part about getting the analysis is that the team at 3000 BC can suggest a regimen to improve any skin concerns.

Next it was off to the facial!  I started with dermaplaning, which removes all the dead skin and peach fuzz on your face.  My esthetician suggested it as it helps with a deeper clean and allows all the moisturizers soak in better.  Then came the HydraFacial.

The HydraFacial is a multi-step resurfacing procedure that provides cleansing, exfoliation, extractions, and hydration, including Vortex-Fusion® of antioxidants, peptides, and hyaluronic acid.  I really appreciated that my esthetician explained all of the steps and what they did for my skin along the way.
Overall the entire procedure took just under an hour and while it wasn't painful, there were parts that were a little uncomfortable.  Not enough for me to stop getting these facials again though.  There was no redness or effects after the facial so you can go about the day immediately after which I appreciated.  And my face just felt so fresh and glowy for a while even after the procedure.

The HydraFacial can be done in 30 minutes, making it a great way to spend a lunch break if you work in the area.

If you're wondering whether to try one, it's great for all skin types, particularly targeting wrinkles, skin tone, oily skin, enlarged pores, and more.  Basically anyone and everyone should try this at least once!  You can read more on the HydraFacial here.
This facial also got me thinking about my skincare routine and more specifically, using SPF everyday to protect my face!  I found out that 3000 BC specially makes skincare products and sunscreen with unique formulas and scents which I really appreciated.  I took home their SPF sand have been using it almost everyday!

The entire staff was wonderful and I really enjoyed my experience at 3000 BC Center City.  I cannot wait to go back!

The tough thing about March is that you never know how to dress.  I'm really wanting to dress for spring but the fact is it's snowed 3 times in the past 2 weeks.  But let's think happy fashionable thoughts...

Who else is still a fan of the overall/jumper dress?  I hope everyone;  I'm still loving it a lot.  This particular black dress has been going strong and has been a piece that's been styled quite a bit over the past few months!  It's so easy to wear (and comfy!) and can be dressed up or down based on the occasion.

Spring Style Tip: Layer the overall dress over an off the shoulder top!

It's so cold right now so I'm layering everything with coats, sweaters and anything I can find to stay warm (hence how I styled the outfit above.)  But I also love baring a little shoulder for spring/summer and off the shoulder cuts look so cute with the style of the overall/jumper dress.

It seems like most of my outfit is old or sold out, so sorry about that.  I've linked some alternative options below.

I need to also take a moment to shoutout The Bouqs, a farm to table flower company that I featured last month on Instagram!  The flowers are cut only after your purchase and they come from farms that practice sustainable and eco-friendly farming, which means the flowers last longer.  I cannot wait to order more flowers from here.

Spring is just around the corner...and with that comes the itch to throw out the old and bring in the new.  For me, I really wanted to do something different with my hair.  My length was getting boring and I had been wanting to add a natural highlight as well.  Luckily I had the opportunity to collaborate with Andre Richard Salon, a staple in the hair scene in Philly, to come up with a new do!

As soon as I walked in, the salon was such a cute and intimate space and the staff was so welcoming.  First impressions are everything, especially in a place like a hair salon!

Something I was really looking forward to was using Redken products again.  I may be dating myself, but I was obsessed with Redken back in high school, and I know the brand has evolved since my high school days (and I do have a connection to the brand though my current job which has rekindled my interest in them as well.)  This wall at Andre Richard Salon is a Redken lovers dream!

My appointment was with Ryan, and I knew from the beginning that I would be in good hands.  I usually bring photo inspiration whenever I go to a salon, but this time I kept my options open!  I knew I wanted a trim of some sort, and Ryan added some pretty layers throughout which made a huge difference!

The color was subtle and the perfect transition to spring.  Of course I want to go lighter, but I refuse to bleach my hair (made that mistake back in the day!) so I'm happy with these gradual changes.  Ryan took time and care to hand paint the highlights.

Freshly done hair always appears darker, but here is the final look!

I also go the low down on Ryan's must have products that work for any and every hair type.  Can I just say I'm officially obsessed with One United, which has so many different benefits, plus smells amazing.  Tip: start your hair routine with this handy spray.

It's been a few weeks now and I'm having so much fun styling my hair!  Curly or straight, the color and length is perfect.
I had such a great experience and I highly recommend checking out Andre Richard Salon and Ryan the next time you're looking to try something new with your hair!

Zaful Bow Blouse c/o | Kohls Pants, old (linked some cute alternatives below) | Furry Coat | Target Heels, no longer available | AmiClubwear Crossbody c/o

I'm pretty sure these are my favorite pants in my wardrobe right now.  That being said, I'm so glad my current job doesn't require me to dress business casual!  Now I can do it for fun.  The great thing about these pants is that they transition into a great nighttime look with the right styling.

There are many ways to style printed pants and I'm sharing a few of my favorites with you today.

5 Ways to Style Printed Pants

  • White Blouse - This is the classic look that's perfect for any occasion, but your white blouse does not have to be boring.  I'm in love with the bow on the sleeves (I know this was at Zara a few months ago but I missed out and was so happy to see a similar version at Zaful!)  
  • A Pop of Color - Adding a pop of color always takes an outfit to the next level (in my opinion!)  The easiest way to do this is with a colorful top.  I paired these pants with my favorite mustard sweater for fall, and am thinking a baby blue or lavender would be great for spring.
  • Print Mixing - I'm always up for a print mixing challenge.  This simple black and white pattern is perfect for pairing with a print.  It's always best to find prints in the same color family, so blacks and whites are ideal for these pants.  Another tip is to vary print sizes; since this print is tiny, I would love to pair with an oversized print.  I will be on the lookout for a great floral blouse to pair with these pants next.
  • Duster, Vest or Cardi - I cannot get enough of layered looks, and an easy way to achieve this is with a long duster vest or cardi!  The great thing is this is a look that can be transitioned between seasons, especially when the weather is hit or miss.  A long black sweater vest or sleeveless blazer would be so cute with these pants.
  • Tee - Lately I've been loving the contrast of casual with dressy pieces.  A vintage tee, or any tee really, would be really cute along with a blazer or moto jacket.

Of course there are more ways to style printed pants, especially when you think about accessories but I'll keep it simple for this blog post!

But speaking of accessories, I want to highlight a few other parts of my outfit!  First off, I'm obsessed with this furry jacket, for obvious reasons!  And how cute is this crossbody.  Between the floral embroidery and the studded detail, I'm in love.  And it's topped off with a removable striped strap which adds a sporty touch!  This bag is a must have ladies!

It's been a whirlwind week (how amazing were the Eagles - I still can't believe we won the Super Bowl!) so I didn't get to share some of the posts I had planned.  But the good thing is that I have lots of great content coming!

Today I'm sharing one of my favorite staples, embellished denim, combined with one of my new favorite accessories, hats!   Denim and a tee is the perfect causal combo, but wearing the same outfit can get boring, right.  To spice it up I've been trying to find fun denim to add to my collection, just like these embroidered TopShop cuties I snagged at Nordstrom Rack.  Of course I can't resist anything with stars, and this pair is perfect for us petite ladies!

Now, let's talk hats.  I tried my hand at styling a beret a few weeks ago (see the full post here) and was hooked so I knew I had to add a few more styles to my collection.  I had been wanting a fedora and this particular one has pretty gold detailing as well as a little bow.  What style should I try next?

Hope you have a great weekend!  I know I'll be enjoying the long weekend!
