GlossyBox is Back

Hi Everyone,

As you probably can tell since I have started blogging I have had an obsession with subscription boxes. I have subscribed to Glossybox Canada, Spicy Subscriptions, Ipsy and most recently Birchbox, Glossybox was my personal favourite. I could always count on lots of full size products and different products and brands every month. I was very sad when Glossybox pulled out of Canada.
I now happy to report the American Glossybox is now shipping to Canada.





They were sweet enough to send me some information on their special February box. The box is called The Whole Lotta Love box. Already Glossybox has not disappointed as they are offering a full size shower gel from Rituals Cosmetics, an Unwash Bio Cleansing Conditioner and three other surprise items. This box will be sure not to disappoint! For $21 dollars this could be yours!

Let me know if you try Glossybox!

xoxo,

Stripes for a Night Out

This winter for a blogger who likes to take outdoor OOTD has been horrible. The snowbanks are actually above my head. In my area of town, it has been declared a State of Emergency due to the amout of snow. We have nowhere to put it. Anyway, on to fashion, I discovered I had these outfit pictures that I never shared on the blog. I wore this to a rooftop party I went to with my friends back in the fall. It was great night full of drinks, food, dancing and laughs. I am loving the matching coordinates trend, so when I saw this dress I knew it needed to be mine. I also love how it is a midi style skirt. Kim Kardashian has definitely made this trend popular. This dress was my first purchase from Marshall's in Canada.


Dress: Marshalls
Shoes: Charlotte Russe

What I'm Going to Miss Most About Target Canada

It has been a few weeks since the news broke that Targets in Canada were going to close.  Due to poor sales and problems with its distributor we were braced with this sad news. Personally, Target was one of the few places I actually shopped at in person. My friend Kaylee and I made Target our go to spot on Friday nights.  My Mom and I also frequented at Target a lot. You could say, I could just not get enough at Target.

 I thought I would compile a list of things I will dearly miss about Target Canada.

1. The Make-Up: Target has such a variety of make-up compared to its competitors aka Walmart. It offered reasonably priced brands like Pixie by Petra and Sonia Kashuk.  I was lucky enough to get a set of Sonia Kashuk brushes for $20.00. This was an amazing deal I will never forget. The NYX collection offered everything (Except Copenhagen, it was always sold out). No other store here had such a range of NYX products.

2. The Dollar Zone: The dollar zone in Canada is not as great as its American counterpart, but it was still magical. You never know what you could find.  I have a planner addiction, so I would always be picking up cute post- it notes, gel pens, stickers... everything to fuel my planner addiction. RIP Target Canada Dollar Zone.

3. The Housewares: Target had lots of beautiful things for your home. From chaise lounges to prints to mirrors, it had everything would make your home look beautiful. I had a spot soft for the candles. My Mom got the Pumpkin Cheesecake candle for her birthday and I swear it smells as good or maybe even better than my Bath and Body Works candles.

4. The Baby Section: I recently became an Aunt to a beautiful baby girl Georgia. Ever since, I found out I was going to have a niece, you could find me in the baby department. They had so many cute outfits at great prices! I bought this adorable outfit for my niece and when I got to the checkout it was even cheaper.

5. The Holiday Section Treats: The treats in the Holiday Section have never let me down in terms of their price and deliciousness. During Halloween I was obsessed with the candy corn. Christmas is the peppermint M&Ms and Valentine's Day it has been the cookies and cream hearts. The only good thing about Target is closing is it might help my waistline,


Those are just a few of the reasons I personally will miss Target. There are many more bigger issues with the closure, like the employees who will be losing their jobs and also what will fill the giant void in the mall. I just wanted to share with you what I will miss. I guess now, this will be an even greater reason for me to cross border shop.

What will you miss from Target?

My January Ipsy Bag

Hi Everyone,

 Today I just wanted to share with you a review of my January Ipsy Bag. I had previously unboxed my Ipsy Bag on my youtube channel.  In this post I just wanted to provide further reviews on the products I received.

 


I was very pleased by the  Nourish Renewing Avocado eye cream. Lately I have been experiencing dry patches on my t-zone and eyelids.  It seemed like nothing I put on it would clear it up. I started using this cream and now my skin is back to normal! Yay! I really like Nourish cosmetics because it is all natural.

I am enjoying the Manna Kadar Shimmer Lotion. I have been using this as a highlighter. Where I am a darker skin tone I find it difficult to find a highlighter that looks good on my skin. I love this one, because it provides the perfect shimmer for my skin. It is very easy to blend and it is long lasting. The only sad thing is I can't seem to find a full size version to order on the website.

The Natural Mineral Eyeshadow from Pacifica has also been used daily since I received my bag. I have been using this as a base for my eye shadows. It is a very shimmery eye shadow and works as a perfect base because it is so neutral. Even without primer I haven't experienced creasing with this shadow.

The other two items: the JCat Gel Liner and Real Techniques still have not been used yet. I have an abundance of eyeliners and I don't want any to dry up before I am finished with them. Lately I have been using liquid eyeliner or They're Real so I haven't used this brush. I am excited to try these products when the time comes.

Overall, the last 2 bags I have received have been better than usual so I have maintained my subscription because of that. Let's hope for three in a row with February's bag!

What do you think of Ipsy?
