Style Mondays: Dark Summer

Pretty Connected Style Mondays Buddah Girl Jewelry styled by Tiffany Pinero

Going back to black is a perfect curve ball to throw at your summer wardrobe (especially as we start to transition to fall). While brights and vibrant prints are always a staple for the season, there is an overwhelming presence of cool associated with a dark and daring ensemble. A maxi dress you’ve worn dozens of times over can be transformed with a different shoe choice and some bold accessories. I recently discovered BuDhaGirl, their wrap bracelets and necklace (even wore backwards) complete the look. Unleash your inner

Style Mondays: Tracked out

Cut off short style Lara Pretty Connected styled by Tiffany Pinero

Athletic jackets inspired us on the runways and now are the must have item for summer nights. This neutral piece with yellow highlights by d.brand, adds a touch of cool to everything. Lucky you, d.brand is running a 20% off special (use code “db20” at checkout) — also check out their denim! Don’t be afraid to experiment with colored accents, and mixing styles (track jackets with heels, dress shirts with cut off shorts); just strike the right balance to keep it fresh and modern and not tragically out of place! Speaking of modern, don’t you think a leather cap adds a little extra something to a look too? Keep scrolling for some sporty summer style with an edge.

Style Mondays: Biker Babe or Skater Chick?

Lara Eurdolian, Rag and Bone

True, rising temperatures don’t always seem to be the ideal situation for a little bit of leather. Sometimes though, in the midst of needing a popsicle and maxi dresses galore,  we get a gem of a day and you can sport this bad to the bone texture. A pair of slick shorts can add some street to the simplest of outfits and lets  be real it doesn’t hurt when it comes from Rag & Bone either.

PC Partners with Wantable for Makeup + Jewelry Box

I have an exciting announcement! I’ve been asked to extend my partnership with Wantable to help curate their makeup and jewelry box for this month’s June box!

Lara Eurdolian, Wantable

Wantable is a subscription service that helps you discover new jewelry and makeup brands and products for $36/month or $40 for a one time purchase. Based on your style and beauty profile, they hand pick 3-5 boutique jewelry pieces or 4-6 full-size cosmetic items and ship them to you direct. (Think Birchbox, only with Wantable you’re getting full size beauty product instead of samples and there’s also a jewelry option). Best part is the shipping is free and your purchase is 100% guaranteed. If you’re not satisfied there’s a return slip included so you can ship the items back for a full refund.

So while I have no idea what you’ll get in your box (it all depends on your profile settings, ie. if you only want lipstick, that’s all you’ll get, if you want a combination of eye and nails then that’s what you can expect… and then of course shade ranges and other details you share). Here are my picks for this month’s beauty box month! (Pssst, click HERE to enter for your chance to win some of my favorite products)

Face Stockholm, Knockout Cosmetics, Lise Watier, Susan Posnick

Knockout Nail Polish – My favorite matte nail polish line. We have a full range of shades! There’s so much you can do with matte nail polish it’s is great on it’s own or as a single nail as an accent. Also with nail art being such a huge trend this season, matte makes for a great base or fun opportunity to mix textures.

Lise Watier – One of the top prestige brands in Canada, Lise Watier has a full line of luxurious products which I’m so excited you may see some of their eye or lip gloss products in this months box. Their lip gloss lights up when you open the packaging, offering a flawless application no matter the lighting. I’ve spent a lot of time with this makeup brand and could not recommend it more.

Besame – Wantable actually introduced me to this makeup line and their red lipstick is beautiful. Gorgeous packaging, great pigment, it’s so glam!

Susan Posnick – We’re debuting her line of ColorEyeDefine this month that has an eye liner pencil on one end and self-dispensing eye shadow on the other! The eye liner is at an angled slant making for a flawless application and coupled with a complimentary eyeshadow on the other side, it’s a must-have for any makeup bag.

FACE Stockholm – one of my favorite makeup brands. Wantable is carrying a wide range of products from blush, to eyes and lips. It’s a

PC featured on Wantable: What’s in the beauty box?

Lara Eurdolian, Wantable

I’m so excited to announce that I’m partnering with Wantable this month to help curate their spring make up box! If you’re not familiar with Wantable you should be beauty queens! It’s a subscription service where they hand pick 5 – 7 full-size products based on your beauty profile and shipped it to your door every month. You have the option to do a one time buy or subscribe for a monthly membership where you can pause or canceled at any time, so you’re never locked in. (Think Birchbox but instead of samples you get full size product.) Shippings and returns are always free so your happiness is guaranteed! Wantable also offers a jewelry box version which I’m a little obsessed with as well, considering accessories are my other vice.

This month they have just the products to help you ease into the final months of Spring and get ready for a Summer! Remember the quickest way to become a beauty expert, is to keep trying new products, and Wantable is an amazing way to do just that. By filling out your beauty profile  (it’s quick) they’re able to customize the perfect box for you. Product offerings spans brow, eyeliner, blush, highlighters, lip color, nail polish, lash product, bronzer, brushes and eye shadow. You rate each product according to “love”, “like” or “dislike”.  Any products in the “dislike” pile, you’ll never see in your box so if you only want eye products, that’s all you’ll get in your box, if you want a mix, you can fill out your profile accordingly. From there it will have you pick your favorite shades.

Wantable box

Some of my favorite products from this month include FACE Stockholm lipsticks + blush, Knock Out Cosmetics matte nail polish, Three Custom Color mini pressed powder, Cailyn eyeliner, and Manna Kadar transfix. (I mean how good looking is my block!). Plus prior to Wantable, I had never tried Cailyn or Manna Kadar, and I’m so glad for the introduction. All of these brands and products are available in the may box, plus many more!

Subscribe for $36/month or buy a single box for $40 (all valued between $80 and $100+). Each box is packed with 5- 7 full-size products hand-picked from unique, specialty, and premium brands and includes expert application tips and tricks.
