Dyson Supersonic Hair Dryer // Worth the Hype?

When it comes to splurging, if I had to choose, my favorite splurges are typically beauty products. How can you say no to the pretty colors in a new eyeshadow palette or the thrill trying on a new lipstick brings? Maybe it’s just me, but beauty products make me happy. It’s the same reason that when Dyson announced their new Supersonic Hair Dryer, I was more than intrigued.

As for splurging on beauty tools, I’ll be honest and say it’s not something I frequently do. It’s unusual for a beauty tool to wear out (which is most definitely a good thing!). So when a new one comes out, it’s often easy to pass on upgrading until my current tools give up the good fight and go to wherever dead hot tools go, especially if the price is a bit steep. And to be fair, the Dyson Supersonic Hair Dryer had that warning flag. It’s not “budget-friendly” at $400. So is it worth the hype?

5 Simple Ways to Make Your Lipstick Last All Day // Giveaway!

With the rise of the long wear liquid lipstick, it would seem like there’d be no need to figure out a way to make your lipstick last all day. The thing is, though, long wear liquid lipsticks are notorious for leaving your pout extremely parched. As much as I love a good liquid lip, I still reach for my traditional lipsticks, especially in the winter months.

Too Faced Sweet Peach Collection // Giveaway!

Over and over again I’ve heard people buzzing about the new releases to the Too Faced Sweet Peach Collection this past December. I was fortunate enough to nab a few goodies on launch night via, despite the mass amount of traffic that was slowing their site down and making it incredibly hard to check out.

In typical me fashion, I wanted to take a little time to be able to try out the products fully so that I can give you my honest thoughts. I’d hate to make recommendations or express displeasure with something that I end up changing my mind on a later date, which is why I wanted to write out the good, bad, and ugly about this collection.

So first off: the elephant in the room. If you’re someone who follows “makeup drama” on social media and YouTube, then you might have heard about the shipping “scandal.” I was not affected by this, as I believe it was only those who ordered the eyeshadow palette. I can’t give a first-hand account of how my customer service experience was because my order shipped about two business days after placing it (on December 17th), and then I received the product on December 21st via FedEx, so I didn’t need to contact customer service. My order arrived well packaged with everything I ordered inside.

Now that we’re past the elephant in the room, let’s get to the good stuff! The products themselves, of course.

What to Wear on New Years Eve: Outfit + Makeup // Giveaway!

Can you believe it’s almost 2017?! I don’t know where the time has gone. I hope you and yours had a wonderful Christmas if you celebrate, and were able to enjoy some time off for the holidays. I’m so happy that I have this week off work, and I’ve been using my time to plan ahead on blogging and vlogging things for 2017. Today I thought I would share what to wear on New Year’s Eve, no matter what you have planned!

NYE Outfits // Hello Rigby Seattle Fashion Blog

What to Wear on New Years Eve

Sweater: Mackenzie Mock Neck Pull Over c/o J.Jill
Skirt: Pleated Gold Skirt via Target {Yes, this is a girl’s skirt. I’m wearing an XL, which fits like woman’s small but could probably also accommodate a medium.}
Bag: Urban Expressions Brooklyn Vegan Leather Clutch via Stitch Fix
Necklace: Kendra Scott Phara Tassel Lariat Necklace
Ring: Kendra Scott Boyd Drusy Ring
Shoes: Xappeal via Rack Room Shoes {similar under $100, similar under $50}

I went shopping a few days before Christmas, and one of my goals was to find a cute metallic skirt for my New Year’s Eve Outfit. Truth be told, we’re not doing anything super crazy for the holiday; our annual tradition is watching a movie while indulging in Ezell’s Fried Chicken. However, that doesn’t mean I don’t want to get a little dressed up, so I’ll definitely be rocking this cute little skirt and a sweater to keep me cozy. I finally found what I was looking for at Target, in the girl’s section no less! If you can believe it, this is a girl’s size extra large, and it fits perfectly on my petite frame! Continue reading

Winter Hair Care Routine

I realized the power of hair and beauty products on the first day of the fifth grade. Sounds weird, right? But hear me out. I remember trying a sample of Pantene Daily Moisture Renewal Shampoo and Conditioner from the newspaper on my first day of fifth grade. My parents have always been frugal. My dad was a grocer – he loved clipping coupons and finding a deal so I, too, have always been on the hunt for affordable, quality products. When Pantene reached out to me, I was excited to work with them!

Using that sample was my attempt at feeling more like a grown up, as to me, Pantene had always been out of reach. I knew Pantene from TV commercials, where beautiful women went from frizzy and lackluster hair to beautiful, long, shiny locks. I lathered, and I rinsed, and I conditioned, and I rinsed, and I went to bed hoping that in the morning, my hair would look just like those women on TV.
