I work near so many great stores which can be a big problem at times. Recently I have been going to Lord and Taylor a lot. I went 3 times this week!During my 1st visit I purchased shoes. Currently there is a promotion on women's shoes, buy 3 or more pairs get 30% off. Of course I bought three pairs. One pair is for Angela so I do not feel as guilty for buying so much!Jessica Simpson- black suede wedgesSam Edelman- grey suede heelsDuring my 2nd visit I bought another gift for Angela which I will not mention because she reads my blog. Angela's birthday is not until November but I like to shop in advance. During my 3rd visit I went to the Chanel makeup counter. I went in to check out their new foundation, Perfection Lumiere. I ended up getting my makeup done. I have an hour lunch break so I figured why not get a makeover. Check out the items I picked up:L to RPoudre Douce 20 in Peche TendreHydramax MoisturizerNew Perfection Lumiere FoundationI really want to go back tomorrow for more shoes! :-PThanks for reading,Isa

Today I received my Birchbox for the month of September. For the past few months I have contemplated canceling my subscription. Within 10 minutes of checking out the box I gave Birchbox a call and cancelled. To my surprise the cancellation process was simple. I just provided the customer service representative my email address and she was able to cancel, no questions asked. She didn't even ask my name or mailing address. I mean anyone who knows my email could have cancelled without me knowing. More importantly she didn't even ask me why I was canceling. How can you improve customer service if you do not know what the customer is even thinking?! Anyway onto the products...
Jurlique Hand Sanitizer
Very minty. I did not like it. After using my hands smelt like I was in a garden.
Attimo Perfume Sample by Salvatore Ferragamo
I never liked getting perfume sample from Birchbox. Seriously I can just run into Macy*s and ask any sale associate for a sample. This scent was nice, but not my style.
I will never wear this...not much else to say about it.
Jouer Lip Treatment
Very nice and soothing. I will keep it in my purse.
Befine Night Cream
Left my skin feeling soft. I am excited to try this, but realistically will forget about it and never use.
Birchbox is a nice idea, but not for me. I would not mind spending $10 each month if I actually used the products. Hopefully October isn't that great so I will not regret canceling! :P

I few weeks ago I had a post about my fall shoe wishlist. One pair on my the list was the Richmond riding boot from Corso Como (pictured below). Unfortunately bloomingdales.com sold out before I placed my order. I was planning to order in September, but these sold out in August! I didn't want to order fall shoes that early, it is still summer!
However I did find the following alternative boot also from Corso Como (pictured below). This style is the St. Louie and I purchased at shoes.com on a great sale ($130)! I actually like this pair more because of the straps plus it was not as expensive as the Richmond. It adds a little extra but it is not overbearing. After seeing the first pair sell out I did not want to lose these also!
Once the weather cools down I want to wear these with jeans. I love how the black and brown is mixed. Personally I do not like to mix the two colors on my own, but I love when designers use them together in a piece.
