Fall Floral Rompin' + Good HUES-Day Linkup

Billabong Floral Romper, Sole Society Booties, Wide Brim Hat

As this post goes live, I will currently be en route to the Google offices down in Venice Beach for a field trip for work. Fun! The 2-hours+ sitting in traffic it takes to get there during rush hour? No fun! On top of it, it's hot. Like scorching, dry, icky hot. I thought this was fall?? I guess this extreme weather gives me an excuse to wear this pretty dark floral Billabong romper I picked up during the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale a couple months ago. I absolutely love the back-tie details and I mean, how cute does it look with a hat and booties? C'mon SoCal, bring on that heat!

September POPSUGAR Must Have Box

Are we really at the end of September, already? The older I get, the quicker the days go by... in fact, I could use a couple extra hours in the day. My schedule has been jam-packed lately and it doesn't look like it's letting up anytime soon. Between a full-time career, travel, conferences, blogging and trying to have some form of social life, I feel like it's just go, go, go.

Makeup Monday: Fresh Faced with Glossier

lossier Skin Phase-1 Set: Skin Tint, Balm Dot Com, Milk Jelly Cleanser, Priming  Moisturizer

I find that Glossier's motto of 'skin first, makeup second' holds so true. Yes, you can cover up blemishes and imperfections with makeup, but in the long run, that's not going to help and, depending on the products you use, can actually make those skin problems worse. Glossier, created by Emily Weiss of Into the Gloss (and yes, super intern Emily on The Hills!), believes that you need to take care of your skin first and offer all four of these products in their not-so-basic _Glossier Phase 1 Set.

Style On A Budget: 5 Tips for Finding the Best Deals

This post is sponsored by Groupon, however all opinions are my own. Thank you for supporting brands that support A Good Hue.

5 Tips for Finding the Best Style Deals

The other day I shared my tips for finding the best beauty and pampering deals so this time around I wanted to share my tips on scoring great style deals. I know to some it looks like I always have new things and that I probably spend a ton on my wardrobe, but in all honesty I really don't. I know how to find good deals and rarely ever pay full price. Here's a few of my tips for saving when it comes to your style:

1. Sign up for your favorite brands' email newsletters. You'll be the first to learn about the latest sales and will receive coupon codes right to your inbox. Many brands even offer a special intro offer just for signing up! While your at it, be sure you're following your favorite brands on social media as they will typically announce their sales and special offers there as well.

2. If you don't feel like sorting through gobs of emails, Groupon Coupons compiles all the best offers from around the web, making it so easy to shop and save. You can find offers for Nordstrom, Kohl's, Sephora, Bloomingdales and more of your favorite stores.

3. Don't be too good for the sales and clearance section, you never know what you might find! Site such as Shopbop, will sometimes run exclusive offers on just their sale section, allowing you to save even more. A couple months ago I had found a super cute blazer but the brand was out of my size. I ended up browsing through the clearance section and found one that was super similar... for less than half the price!

4. Don't spend a ton of trendy pieces. You can find some great styles at  H&M, Forever 21, even Target that are on-trend but won't break the bank. One of my favorite blogs, Thrift and Threads, shows how amazing style can be created by mixing high and low-end items and sticking to a budget.

5. In this day and age you never have to pay full-price. Before committing to a style, use the Internet to search around for the best prices and any deals. You can even use sites like Shopstyle to compare prices and score the best deal.

How do you find the best style deals? Let me know in the comments!

My Wallet-Friendly Pampering Routine

This post has been sponsored by Groupon, however all opinions are my own.

My Pampering Routine with Groupon

Like most women, I love being pampered-- manicures, pedicures, facials, the works-- and would do so every week if I could. I will treat myself every now and then but these can start putting a dent in my budget so I typically have to search for more cost-effective ways to indulge in pampering treatments.

Read on for my budget-friendly pampering routine and how you can get your pamper on, including my secret for finding the best in beauty pampering deals...

Fall Style Essentials

Kate Spade Byrdie Bag, Charlotte Tilbury Lipstick, JCrew Toothpick Jeans, Lush Floral Dress, Steve Madden Lace-Up Flats
The nights are getting cooler and the sun is setting earlier, which means one thing: summer is coming to an end. Wah!! While summer will be greatly missed I can't help but look forward to fall... well, let's be real, as much "fall" as we actually get here in SoCal... and the cute styles that come with it.

Here's what's on my must-have style list this fall:

Wear It Now, Wear It Later: #itsbanana Denim Jeans

Banana Republic Wrap Military Jacket and Straight Jeans
Straight Jeans: Banana Republic (c/o) | Military Jacket: Banana Republic (c/o) | Tee: H&M | Booties: Treasure&Bond | Phone Case Wristlet: Rebecca Minkoff | Necklace: Stella & Dot (similar) | Cuff: LC Lauren Conrad for Kohl's | Sunglasses: Target

This weekend I started thinking about my summer activities, or rather lack of. I didn't go to the beach, aside from my trip to the South I didn't go anywhere, even a quick weekend trip to Vegas or out to the river, or even a fun day trip for that matter. I was pretty much a homebody this summer... Bo-ring!

My fall season, however, will be anything but boring. I'll be heading out to Toronto for work, my sister's wedding is coming up, I have a blog conference booked, a fun concert coming up  and hopefully a couple of long weekend trips in the works. I totally have to make up for my lackluster summer. I'm also really excited to pull out my fall clothes, jackets and booties.

LC Lauren Conrad Runway Collection Picks

LC Lauren Conrad Runway Collection 2016 for Kohls

Today I had the chance to check out the LC Lauren Conrad 2016 Runway Collection down at the Americana at Brand in Glendale, where they hosted a little Lauren Conrad pop-up shop. This ultra-feminine collection is filled with gorgeous wine shades, blush tones, rose-gold, nudes and pretty lilac- mauves-- all my most favorite shades. The LC Runway Collection is limited edition, so you'll want to get your hands on these items while you can- some pieces can be found in Kohl's stores, but there are some online exclusives available only at kohls.com.

Here's a look at my top picks from the collection:

1. Faux-Suede Moto Jacket: I have a feeling this moto jacket is going to be the most popular item from the collection! The faux-suede is SUPER soft, the style is super on-trend and the wine shade is gorgeous. The jacket also comes in black and a camel shade (with rose-gold button and zipper details)-- LOVE!

2. Ruffle Romper: I'm usually not much of a ruffle fan but I am feeling the soft ruffles on this chic romper! The long sheer sleeves on this romper make it totally acceptable for the workplace too.

3. Blue Quartz Cuff Bracelet: The jewelry pieces in this collection are so pretty-- I loved this rose-gold cuff with the blue quartz so much that I bought the matching ring and necklace!

4. Embroidered Cold-Shoulder Top: Super cute cropped tank with adorable daisy pattern- would look cute with high-waited pants, skirt or even jeans. Scroll below to see how Lauren wore it at the pop-up shop!

5. Chunky High Heels: I am in LOVE with these faux-suede blush-y nude chunky heels. I tried them on at the pop-up shop and they are super comfy (one of the girls working there said they are currently Lauren's favorites). I knew immediately when I saw them that they'd be perfect for my sister's upcoming wedding so I had to scoop up a pair.

6. Double-Breasted Blazer: Blazers are a wardrobe staple and I can easily see this one becoming a go-to. I love the longer length-- it looks great paired with pants, long dresses, and even shorts!

7. Ruffle Halter Top: I totally had to scoop up this halter in this pretty faint muave shade- I'm loving the retro style, the feminine ruffles and the keyhole detail in the front. Winner!

8. Lace Midi Dress: How pretty is this lace dress? I absolutely love the addition of the tulle hem, which is so unique, romantic and utterly-feminine. Trust me, this dress is GORGEOUS in person.

9. Pomegranate Cat's Eye Sunglasses: I mean, do I even need to say it? These sunnies are so cute!

10. Leather Bow Mini Crossbody Bag: Obsessing over this mini crossbody bag- love the bow details and chain strap. This bag also comes in cognac and a pretty wine shade-- the hard part is choosing the color!

Lauren Conrad LC Runway Collection 2016

I had the chance to meet (re-meet? Fun fact- I've met her before when she was the brand ambassador for mark., which I used to rep for!) her at the pop-up. She's super sweet and yes, that is one of her tops she's wearing!

PS- Many of the pieces are on sale NOW and you can save even more by using a coupon code. Get it while it's hot!

Summer to Fall Dress

Banana Republic red tie-neck dress
Dress: Banana Republic Jacket: H&M (similar) | Booties: Sole Society Handbag: Kate Spade New York

September is always that weird month, especially after Labor Day-- it's still summer but everyone is already gearing up for fall. I keep seeing PSL everywhere (I think I may be one of the only white girls that's not a super PSL fan!), Halloween decor is already out, it's nuts. While I do like a weather cool-down, I still want to be able to wear my cute summer dresses.

Keep reading to find out how I easily transition my summer dresses to fall...

August Beauty Favorites

Becca Skin Perfector, It Cosmetics Bye Bye Makeup, Nars Cheek Palette, MAC Lipstick, Flowerbomb

I think I'm going nuts... does my calendar really say it's September?? While I am definitely looking forwards to a cool-down, it's always sad to see summer go. Who am I kidding though? I live in SoCal and summer pretty much goes til October. So while everyone else is looking cute in their booties and fall jackets, I'll be here... sweating.

Okay enough with the over-dramatics. Today I wanted to share a few of my recent beauty favorites from this past month. Keep reading to get the scoop on each of these>>
