Happiest of Holidays with Hallmark Signature

Disclosure: This post was sponsored by Hallmark Signature through their partnership with POPSUGAR Select. While I was compensated to write a post about Hallmark Signature, all opinions are my own. When I think about 2016, the first word that comes to mind is gratitude. This has been a year of immense stresses (though a lot of wins!) for me, but I wouldn’t have made it without the support of my friends. My friends are like family to me. With so…

Gift Guide: Gifts for Men

gifts-for-a-man

Gifts for men can be pretty simple if you let it. I love my husband and his quirky ways, so I just look for really ridiculous things like virtual reality headsets and vintage Genesis consoles. And selfishly, I get beard tonic. No one wants roughness rubbing on their faces. 1. Immerse Plus Virtual Reality Headset: Because, why not? This has glowing reviews everywhere. All he needs to do is download an app for 3D games and movies, and he’s out…

Gift Guide: Gifts for Beauty Lovers

gifts-for-a-beauty-lover

Gifts for a beauty lover are pretty simple – get the best of the beauty and body products, whether she’s a beauty pro or just an enthusiast like myself. My go-to is Sephora, but other shops like ASOS and especially Urban Outfitters have some fun options as well. 1. NUDESTIX #BerryNudeLips Mini Set: NUDESTIX became my favorite thing while on vacation in Paris because of their versatility and ease of use (plus, the tin it comes in doubles as a mirror).…

Gift Guide: Gifts for Best Friends

gifts-for-your-best-friend

When it comes to gifts for best friends, I like to keep it simple and fun. It’s best to do gifts that a) they will love b) you can share an inside joke about c) make sure everyone knows your best friend is yours. Here are a handful of my faves: 1. The Homegirls Bracelets ($32): The equivalent of a best friend’s heart necklace, this set of bracelets is just one of the markers so people know your bff is yours…

Jumpsuit: Eloquii | Shoes: Steve Madden | Shirt: Lane Bryant | Bow: ASOS | Earrings: BaubleBar | Bracelets: BaubleBar Being a December baby, the holidays are my favorite time of year. I love to…

SheaMoisture at Walmart?

It’s inevitable – every time I go to Walmart, usually for food, I end up in the natural hair section. Honestly, I can’t even help myself anymore. My name is Kelly Augustine and I’m a product junkie, at least I can admit when I have a problem. Before heading out to go food shopping a few weeks ago, I remembered I was low on SheaMoisture’s Coconut & Hibiscus hair care line. Light and summery in scent, it’s become a staple…

Made for Movers

plus-size-leather-jacket-eloquii-1

I am what many consider a “mover” and a “shaker”. I am always running around town, and I need pieces that both make a statement and are ridiculously comfortable. To go from New Jersey to Long Island City to wherever I’m going after work is no joke. Applique Jacket: Eloquii | Shoes: Rockport Shoes | Jeans: NYDJ During NYFW, I like my clothes to speak for me. Yes, I am a minimal dresser these days but no, I haven’t lost the…
