The Holidays are officially over, we’re beyond ready to let go of winter, but spring isn’t quite here yet. It is truly a bonafide transitional time period, friends. So what in the world is the LIY Team shopping for these days? Answer: A little bit of everything. Insert HSN. Yep, you read that right. If you haven’t shopped HSN recently, sit tight and get ready to discover a whole new world– cue the Disney song. From fashion items to beauty products, electronics and everything in between, HSN has got it going on. With literal thousands of items and special daily deals, it’s easy to get lost in all the goodness. But never fear, Team LIY is here. We hit up their internet shelves to see what we could find for another LIY Team Try On: HSN Edition. And today we’re sharing those finds with you! So sit back, relax, and get ready to dive head first [err, fingertip first?] into the world of HSN.
I think we all know by now my deep, unconditional love for Giuliana Rancic. If you don’t, just pay any of these blog posts a visit. To say that I’m stoked she has her own fashion line that I can shop regularly is an understatement. This sweater is incredibly soft and I love the mixed material on the sleeve. A fun top for work or a night out!
After watching the on-air segment about this laundry detergent, I wanted to buy it immediately [oh, the power of video and likeable on-air guests]. For starters, I love that there are 250 loads of laundry packed into this tub. That’s a whole lotta laundry, friends. This detergent is supposed to do a great job of getting out stains without adding in harsh chemicals to do so. I’m anxious to start washing and see what I think. I’ve read rave reviews about how those with sensitive skin don’t react to this detergent and how great of a job it does getting scents out of dirty laundry #worthit.
Speaking of my girl G, I wanted to try her basic white tee [I’m always on the hunt for a great one] and this one checks off many boxes. While it is slightly more sheer in the chest area than I’d prefer, it is crazy soft and a good fit overall! While I’m not going to say this is my absolute favorite I’ve ever tried, it’s a tee I know I’ll find myself reaching for on more than one occasion.
Taking a walk on the wild side, literally! If you haven’t noticed yet, I stick with a lot of neutral colors in my wardrobe with a splash of color here and there [lol] so this top is definitely out of my comfort zone but I love it! The print and color on this one is so fun and a great way to make a statement without going overboard! It’s a lighter weight sweater and incredibly soft! If you’re a fan of leopard print, this may just be the NEW option you’ve been looking for!
What can I say, I’m a sucker for a good deal and rave reviews! I’ve had my eye [literally] on this mascara since it first came out and was so excited to try it! I typically use 2 different types of mascara since my lashes are thin and short so I was hoping this would alleviate me using two! While this one didn’t give me a ton of volume, it definitely gave my lashes more length and enough volume to just stick with one mascara! And I’m not mad about this 2 for almost the price of 1 deal 😉
As you can see from this photo, eye makeup can make me a whole new person haha! One of my friends let me borrow this mascara years ago (and I wonder how I’ve had a few styes), but after I tried it, it set the bar for all other mascaras. This beauty is $25 at Sephora alone, so I was pumped up to snag this piece set for $28. As for the eyeliner: it glides on easily and stays put all day! P.S. remember, you’re beautiful with OR without makeup 🙂
I’ve been on the hunt for booties that dressed up an outfit, but didn’t have too much of a heel. Fun fact about me: I’m not the best at heels. Enter these Vince Camuto booties. I love the sleek style and height of these! I ordered my normal size, but could’ve sized down .5! These have the fun, crocodile detail but they are also available in suede mushroom color as well if that’s more your speed.
My most worn accessory? My Apple Watch. I am always wearing it, whether for a workout or for date night, so I love that I can switch up the bands so easily! I saw this 5-pack and instantly fell in love. The scallops? The metal combo? Yes please! However, a few things to note… the gold/silver ball band will require a separate tool to remove links as it’s pretty large. Also, The bands are genuine leather and are pretty stiff from the start, so they take some wearing to get them to bend!
The right pop of color can change your whole look, and this pack of 5 full size lip glosses gives you the option to choose which color you’re feeling that day! A bit of moisture, a bit of gloss, and a whole lot of color!
Something I don’t like to think about [especially with the year we’ve had]? The number of germs on my phone. *cringe* There’s no time like the present to take allllll the extra precautions when it comes to cleanliness. Insert: a UV Sanitizer & Phone Charger. Simply plug it in, place your phone inside, and let it work it’s magic. I don’t know exactly how ultraviolet light technology sanitizes, but I do know I like the peace of mind– and a charged cell.
I think I’ll always be someone who needs a little love under my eyes in the morning. Blame it on not always getting a great night of sleep due to my kids, lack of water consumption, genetics, 1000 piece puzzles calling my name late into the night… whatever it is – my eyes need more than a cup of coffee to look awake! I recently started wearing bareMinerals foundation and have been loving the light feel it offers while still giving a great buildable coverage. I decided with this new found light coverage, it was time to see if there was a lighter option for under my eyes too. Enter this bareMinerals Eye Brightener! I love that there’s no guessing on which color to purchase (the one product is supposed to blend for all skin types) and it’s easily applied with a brush keeping my fingers clean. You win again bareMinerals!
G by Giuliana High-Waisted Twill Ponte Wide-Leg Pant [TTS, Wearing size 0] // Rib-Knit Sweater
Okay, I know these pants won’t be for everyone, but I am kind of in love! These twill, wide leg pants are EXTREMELY high waisted but, wow I feel like they make me look so TALL! I am only 5’4 but I am feeling 6’ in these! They are pretty fitted/structured through the waist, but otherwise they are super comfy + roomy! I love the shape they give me and how flattering they look once they are on, ha! I can’t wait to style these through the fall and winter months. I feel like you could transform these pants into any outfit or style! Definitely a win in my book!
