  Was I sweating while wearing that cape? Yes, yes I was. It’s not quite sweater weather in Texas (re: we’re still in the “feels like 100 degrees” territory) but I’m so obsessed with this cape that I’m seriously pining for crisp fall weather so I can wear it with more dresses, jeans, and more. Till then, I’ll wear it in my air conditioned apartment and sport the sleeveless dress. Most of the LWDs (little white dresses) I have are short so I got this one because the below the knee midi length was different than anything I have and I…

GIVEAWAY – Stowaway Cosmetic Kits! http://apieceoftoastblog.com/2015/08/24/giveaway-stowaway-cosmetic-kits/ http://apieceoftoastblog.com/2015/08/24/giveaway-stowaway-cosmetic-kits/#comments Mon, 24 Aug 2015 08:00:24 +0000 http://apieceoftoastblog.com/?p=24693

  About those regulatory standards…we think you’ll find this as interesting as we did. All natural beauty products are tricky, mostly because “all-natural” is not a regulated term. What Stowaway does is hold all their products to the highest standards in the beauty industry by being EU compliant. Unlike the US, which bans only 11 items in cosmetics (a questionably low number), Europe bans over 1,300 items in their cosmetics. By being EU compliant, Stowaway is making some of the safest beauty products you can put on your face. Hence the expiration date – hence the small packaging size! As women we like to…

  New York. This city makes me realize I’m an introvert. Instead of feeling energized by all the people and buzz, I get so so tired each day and frequently feel the need to escape the bustle and crowds. However, it has been a great time for me to catch-up with my friends based in the city and I’ve been able to hit up a few spots that have been on my wish list (like getting my nails did at Paintbox). It’s also been ah-mazingly fun to be here with some of the Biscuit crew…I love each of them more and…

  Orignal Coffee Scrub ($15): if the thought of putting coffee grounds on your skin sounds rough, it’s because it should. The stuff is really very gritty. All of the frank scrubs (there are four kinds: Original, Coconut, Cacao, and Peppermint) have freshly ground robusta coffee beans as the main ingredient and there’s a reason why…it smells amazing (ok that’s not really why) and the high caffeine content stimulates blood flow targeting cellulite, stretch marks, psoriasis, varicose veins, eczema, acne, and scarring. I sounds too good to be true but the same way a cup (or two, or three) of coffee can wake you up from the…

Walking Tall in Two Pairs of Rockstar Skinnies http://apieceoftoastblog.com/2015/08/13/walking-tall-in-two-pairs-of-rockstar-skinnies/ http://apieceoftoastblog.com/2015/08/13/walking-tall-in-two-pairs-of-rockstar-skinnies/#comments Thu, 13 Aug 2015 12:47:46 +0000 http://apieceoftoastblog.com/?p=24622

  I can’t even count the number of times I have tried on jeans and wished they were just a liiittleee bit longer. I have fantasized about having jeans that “bunch” at my ankles. This is such a weird thing to dream about – I know – but it’s frustrating when you can make things shorter but not add extra length. Some of my fave jeans are Old Navy’s Rockstar Skinnies. They fit so well and I love how many washes they come in. After doing a little bit of a closet clean out a few weeks back I took…
