Korres haul coming soon ...

I have a number of Korres products that should be arriving today, so expect a review soon.  Yes, I have located my camera cord!

Also, I have decided to return the Babergh Dress.  I LOVE it, but I just don't have anywhere to wear it right now, and for $188 it just isn't worth it.  Maybe on sale though.

Anthropologie Babergh Dress on its way!

I finally couldn't take it anymore and I ordered the Babergh Dress from Anthro's website.  I was torn about which size to order, and I was ultimately able to make an informed decision after a) stalking other people's reviews, and b) calling Anthro customer service and getting the garment measurements for each size I was considering.

Some measurements after the jump!

Anthropologie Snakebite Belt Doppelganger

I was kicking myself for not getting the Snakebite Belt from Anthropologie, so I set out to find a reasonable facsimile to edify my fall wardrobe.  Lo, I came across this beauty at Urban Minx:

I actually like this better because of the weaved detail - I like the texture it adds to an otherwise simple belt.  The thing that kept me from the Snakebite belt in the first place was the elastic sides ... I thought it cheapened the look of the belt a little bit.  This is perfect though, and I can't wait for it to arrive.

Update and Summer Loves

I need to be better about announcing when I am taking a break.  My humblest apologies!

I did receive the Urban Decay Naked Palette before I left on my protracted vacation, and I used it every single day while I was away.  There are a number of reviews out there on it, so I don't think I need to do one (see Temptalia, MusingsofaMuse, MakeupGeek, VampyVarnish, etc.).  I will say that I agree wholeheartedly with their assessments of the palette, and I think that if you are all interested then you should pick it up when it comes back in stock.  I had never used Urban Decay before, and I am very impressed with the brand.  The eyeshadows are exquisite in texture and pigmentation, and considering that you get 12 full-sized shadows with this palette, the value is exceptional.  I'm so glad I tried this palette!

Over the past couple of weeks my skin has gotten back to normal after my Pangea Organics disaster.  I discovered Angel Face Botanicals after Tali from The Gloss Goss mentioned the company at the bottom of this post, and I ordered a sample of the Ambrosia Cleansing Grains.  The sample arrived yesterday, along with a sample of the Oil-free Lavender Hydrating Serum, and I am pleased so far.  I am even happy with the serum, which I am grateful that Jessica included.  We will see in a couple of weeks; I am hopeful about this one.

I seem to have misplaced the cord that allows me to download pictures from my camera to my laptop; when I find it, I will have some pictures for you!

In the meantime, here are some other things I have been loving this summer:
