It's finally Friday. guys! AND it's the last day of July?!? Holy smokes! Seems like summer is beginning to end just when it started to begin. Having grown up in Florida, I am a true summer girl. I love the sun, warm weather, beach vacations, all of it. But, for the first time EVER I am actually excited for fall. I know, weird right?? I'm still enjoying summer fashion, though, and this little number from Shop Billie is just the perfect look for a summer night out. I wore this outfit at the Denver Style Magazine Summer Service Sampler a couple weeks ago, where all these amazing Denver boutiques and salons and whatnot came together in a big warehouse in RiNo to show off what they can do! It was so much fun to get my hair and makeup done and hang out with other Denver creatives. And to do it in this fun outfit? Even better! 

Have a great weekend, everyone! Oh and if you want a chance to win a free pair of sunglasses from Nectar, word on the street is that a special giveaway is happening on my Instagram @myboringcloset ;)

Glo Minerals Summer Shades

When it comes to makeup, I am a total loyalist. I find my favorite products and I stick with them for years. Maybe part of the reason why is that I have always had sensitive skin. So, when I find something that is good for my skin but also incredibly effective, that's pretty much the jackpot. When I first discovered glo minerals last year, I knew I had found my new favorite makeup line. Today, I'm so excited to share with you a few new products I have tried, including their new Cream Glaze Crayons and Matte Shadows!

Glo Minerals Summer Makeup Review and Discount Code // My Boring Closet

The first product I tried was the glo therapeutics solar shade sunscreen. As a fair skinned girl, sunscreen is a must. I wear it every day! It contains a blend of natural, mineral sunscreens, which is awesome because a lot of the chemical sunscreens give me a rash if I sweat in the sun. Not pretty. Plus, the added antioxidants and conditioners leave my skin with a soft rather than greasy finish, which means I can easily layer it under makeup like a moisturizer.

The next product I tried was the Luxe Liquid Foundation. I'm not normally a foundation girl, and I usually use the glo minerals Sheer Tint Base, but I have lately been wanting to try something different. Formulated with light-diffusing diamond powder, this foundation is great for foundation newbies because it is still very light and leaves a dewy finish on my skin, which I love. Plus, you can build the coverage if you want more or less, which is great if you know you are going to be taking photos or something and need more coverage. A little goes a long way here! Another bonus...this foundation has UV protection built in. Woo hoo!

To apply the foundation, I used the Luxe Foundation Brush, naturally! I've never used a foundation brush before, so this was actually life changing! Not only does it feel amazing, but it ensures even coverage. Plus, I don't have to get my hands messy. I can't believe I've gone my whole life without this brush! Never going back.

To set the foundation, I used the Perfecting Powder, which is a nice translucent powder that is perfect for everyday use and reducing shine. I like to carry this with me and reapply a couple times a day as needed. Plus, it comes with a big mirror in the compact, which is very handy! Plus, the clay based formulation features an exclusive antioxidant blend of vitamins A, C, E and green tea extract, which again, is perfect for my sensitive skin.

Next, I applied the Blush in "sweet" to the apples of my cheeks. I am so in loooove with the color of this blush. It's very similar to the ever-popular NARS "orgasm," but I actually like that it's just slightly more toned down. it looks so lovely and natural!

The fun begins with the new glo minerals Matte Eye Shadows. Man oh man, these new colors are right up my alley! It's like painting a sunset on your eyelids. In the above photo from left to right: Dove: a beautiful, matte, satin grey shade can be used as a soft mid-toned crease color or a chic and sultry lid color. Vintage: A soft, matte, vintage mauve shade that will help you create subtle crease definition and can be used for a non-conventional neutral smoky eye. Graphite: This gorgeous, silver-flecked shade is highly pigmented with a cool slate grey undertone. Coy: This gorgeous, warm, matte caramel shadow is an amazing transition color and aids in seamless blending. In the below photo I am wearing "Dove" and "Coy."

For liner, I tried out the Liquid Ink Eyeliner. I am a sucker for a good liquid liner (and a good cat eye!), and this one hit it out of the park. The applicator is a little stiffer than some others, which means more precision in application. It really lasts all day and didn't smudge at all! 

And finally, the lip color. We all know I'm a total lipstick girl, and I love a bold lip! I have fallen in love with the glo minerals Suede Matte Collection, but the new Cream Glaze Crayons are even more amazing! They are some of the prettiest lip colors I have ever owned. Enriched with Vitamins C and E, as well as conditioning Mango Oil and Shea Butter, these crayons provide intense saturation and impressive staying power. Plus, the sharpener is built into the cap of the crayon! The best invention ever! In the photo below above, I am wearing "Mimosa." Other crayons pictured from left to right: Mimosa, Bloom, Jetset, and Heirloom.

Violet Hour Sleepwear Collection

Today I am so excited to share with you Violet Hour Fashion, a brand new sleepwear line from designer Katey Kaiser. Her designs are so lovely and feminine, they'll make you want to dress up for bed every night!

Robe // Short Sleeve Set // Bralette and Shorts // Dress

I've always loved wearing cute pajamas. It kind of makes me feel like Zoey Deschanel...or like I'm headed to a sleepover. One thing I've noticed with pajamas is that there aren't a lot of cute ones that are also comfortable. When I want comfort I usually reach for my sweats! These sleep sets were all so comfy, I could definitely be persuaded to toss those sweats in the trash forever! Plus, the print on the kimono and the bralette with high waisted shorts totally gave me a retro vibe-- like I was on the set of mad men or something. One thing is for sure, I would definitely spend a few more nights in knowing I had such cute outfits to lounge around in!

Katey has launched a kickstarter campaign for The Violet Hour, and has included some wonderful gifts for contributors! Be sure to stop by her page and check out the video to learn more about the inspiration behind the line.

Review: 14 Day Tiny Tea Teatox by Your Tea

If you've been following along on Snapchat (username: myboringcloset), then you know that I had plans to watch Gone Girl tonight. (I'm slightly addicted to oversharing on Snapchat. Sorry!) Yeah, I know, I know, I'm super late to the Gone Girl party. I have been reading the book, but I only really read on the elliptical and I haven't been doing the elliptical that much lately, so I'm only like 200 pages in so anyway, I decided not to wait to read it and just watch the movie.

Anyway, all this to say that I just got home from watching it and holy crap that movie is a lot darker than I expected! Oh. My. God. 

Should I still read the book? Let me know what you think.

Ok, so TEA! I have never really tried any sort of detox, and I'm not particularly a tea drinker, but I was intrigued by the Your Tea Tiny Teatox since it's based on Chinese medicine, and I have heard a lot of good things. So, after a long Fourth of July weekend full of lots of food and booze, I decided some sort of detox would be just what I needed to get back on track. I drank 2 cups of tea a day roughly 30 minutes before or after a meal just like the directions said to do, and within a few days I could already feel improved digestion, less bloating, and I swear I felt more full after my meals! Plus, I think just being in the mindset of doing a detox makes you feel like making healthier choices anyway.

Overall, I felt great after the 14 days, and I plan to order the 28 day detox next. I highly recommend you try the 14 day one at least if you ever have indigestion, stomach pain, bloating, gas, irregularity, or any other mild digestive issues. Something about that tea, man!

p.s. Congrats to the winner of the CorePower Yoga giveaway, Alyssa P! Thank you so much to everyone who entered!

Happy Monday, loves! The weekend always goes by too fast, doesn't it? My weekend was filled with some fun photo shoots and fashion events. I felt so glamorous! On Saturday, me and a few other Denver bloggers had the honor of participating in a photo shoot for my friends' boutique, Patterns & Pops! It was just darling and so much fun. I can't wait to show you guys all the pics! Then on Sunday, I was a part of Denver Style Magazine's Summer Service Sampler. I got to show off a lovely outfit from Shop Billie and mingle with some boutique owners, bloggers, photographers, etc. Anyway, it was a fun weekend, but I definitely didn't get any of the chores done that I needed to do. Oops! I promise, my life is usually pretty boring, but if you ever want to see me overshare, you can follow me on snapchat (username: myboringcloset).

I've already told you guys how much I love the Denver boutique ily | iley, but here is one more outfit so you can see why! Ilyse brought me this dress to my dressing room, and on the hanger it wasn't that impressive, but as soon as I put it on, I felt so fun and retro! I love the color, and the shape of the dress is great for showing off your legs ;)

p.s. You have one day left to enter my CorePower Yoga giveaway!

Thanks again to Noah Berg Photography for these pics!
