Ipsy vs Birchbox October 2014 Vlog

21st October 2014

In the spirit of trying new things, I thought it was time to try a vlog out for my review of Birchbox and Ipsy this month! If you’re new to Ipsy or Birchbox, they are both budget friendly subscription boxes for beauty samples and full size products.

At $10 a month for each subscription, you really can’t go wrong with either, but I’ll show you what I got in each one, and tell you which one I thought was the best bang for my buck.

Fall Fashion Must Haves / hellorigby!

Fall Fashion Must Haves

17th October 2014

The life of a fashion blogger is not easy when it starts getting dark at 6pm and you have a full-time job… and you leave the office at 6pm. Clearly I am not used to this mayhem, and thus have no photos of my own for you today. But, now that I know, I’m going to try to better plan in advance. Can’t it just get dark at 8pm year round? I like that better.

But, I’ve been shopping a lot as usual (though not actually spending much of my own money, I’ve actually been doing pretty good this month!) and have a round-up of some of my favorite items that really scream “FALL!” to me. Continue reading

10 Things Gilmore Girls Taught Me About Life / hellorigby!

10 Things Gilmore Girls Has Taught Me

15th October 2014

I’ve been binge watching Gilmore  Girls ever since it was released to Netflix and I have a lot of thoughts, and a lot of love, for this show. Sure, I could binge watch this show any day of the week (hello, full series DVD owner over here) but there’s something more fun about being able to just stream it. Upon Googling this fun blog post idea about things Gilmore Girls has taught me, I realized I am not that original. But that’s okay, because there’s always room for more Gilmore Girls love, am I right?

Whirlwind Month Part 2: Demi & Seven

14th October 2014

Last week I shared the first few fashion shows and events I went to in September, which was basically my whirlwind month. It was fun, but I’ve been so happy to have my nights and weekends back!

Paisley Swing Dress

10th October 2014

I don’t know if I’ve ever been so excited to have no plans for a weekend. Seriously, I am so behind on everything that I’m just excited to have some time to catch up on my backlog of things at home and things with the blog. No one tells you that blogging is basically like a second job once you get going. It’s fun, but man is it needy.

Speaking of needy, this blog is in need of a little face lift that I’ve been putting off since I changed the design and moved to WordPress to begin with. But never fear, nothing too crazy, just cleaning things up based on feedback from the reader survey. (Which I’m still totally stoked about, you guys rock.) I know change can be rough, so if you don’t like it someone tell me. It’s like when people get spinach in their teeth and no one tells them… don’t let me be spinach teeth girl, please.
