Introducing Bastion & CO + Giveaway











Hello hello there lovies! Happy Thursday, yay! we are almost there! I already feel like it's the weekend ;) Okay, well Today, I am very happy to blog about Bastion & Co, They're a brand new Boutique based in NYC, and when I mean brand new, I mean brand new! They are launching TODAY, and I'm here to talk all about them, I've had the pleasure to get to know (via email) one of the owner's Mats Meyer, who is a total sweetheart , she is a beautiful, smart, career oriented lady! 
I asked her to tell me a little bit about Bastion & Co and this is what she said:

BASTION &CO embodies the crossroads between lifestyle and style. The brand came to light at the culmination of a series of conversations between its founders, discussing the role of fashion and style in the lives of those who are consumed by career and ambition. Essentially, where do sartorial expressions fit into the lives of those who spend night and day working on their vocational craft? BASTION &CO is not an obscure concept; defined, bastion means “an institution, place, or person strongly defending or upholding particular principles, attitudes, or activities.” The brand stands for defending the various lifestyles of the ambitious. In the lives of those striving towards various goals, BASTION &CO does not wish to cover, but to highlight such accomplishments. We firmly believe that each young professional is defined not by their style of dress but by their ambitions and infinite bounds. As a fashion company, we do not try to thrust our image onto people’s lives, but conversely to frame like minded individuals with clean, powerful, and stylish items that compliment who they are as the pioneers of tomorrow.


I love collaborating with talented people like them! And they're nice too! Since they're giving away a $20 gift card to their brand new Boutique to one lucky follower! 
YAY! Good luck :)

I'm also featuring some super cute jewelry from LBC - Lissette Batista and Loululux, go check them out and show them some love! They carry super cute, stylish jewelry and apparel :)

Blushin'










Hello, Hello! Happy Wednesday AKA happy hump day! We are almost there ladies, almost to the weekend! And nothing better than a cute outfit to get me there! Lately I'm all about these fun summer colors, corals, pinks, etc... Seriously, so when Flirt Boutique sent me this shirt, I literally said to myself "perfect, yesss" haha, I paired it with a Banana Republic skirt that I bought over two months ago, and somehow forgot about! nothing like a pair of nude heels to finish off the perfect summer outfit! I hope all of you like it! Also, I'm going to have some videos up for you coming up, I always get questions about my makeup, and how I do my hair! So, please tell me what you want to see :) 

Ps. I had already picked a winner for the Flirt Boutique giveaway, but it's been 6 days and I haven't gotten a response from the winner, so we decided to pick another one! 

Lindsay Rutland, you are the winner! Please email me to makeupbycottens@gmail.com to claim your prize! yay! Congratulations!
