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!

Getting Rid of the Holiday Bloat with Newport Skinny Tea

Hey Beauties,

I hope 2015 has treated you good so far. I know for myself, I am still trying to get back into the swing of things. I've started back at work, and going to the gym. I do need to start eating better this year and amping up my workout a bit. I wanted to share with you all, something that will help you get on track. Today's post is about Newport Skinny Tea.

My weight was always a battle in my younger years. I discussed this a bit back in this blog post. However, through my adult years I have worked on my metabolism. I still like to watch my figure. When I saw this tea, I was very excited to try it. I have noticed on youtube and instagram that many bloggers were trying teatoxes. I was very excited when Newport Skinny Tea contacted me to try some of their new teas.

The teas I received were the Newport Skinny Tea program and the newly launched Malibu Beach Body tea. These teas only contain things that will help your body. On their website you are able to see the ingridients and how they help your body. I will go into detail first about the Newport Skinny Tea program. I was most interested in this tea. I had no complaints about this tea and felt better than ever after drinking it. I admit I did not follow a strict diet with this tea, like it is suggested because at the time I was not looking at weight. The daytime tea was wonderful because on a cold morning, who doesn't like a hot cup of Tea. The tea also did not make me run to the bathroom, like the some of the detox teas.  My system felt very cleansed after this. I felt like the tea was getting out the toxins in my body I didn't need. I often suffer from nausea and stomach pains but while I drank this tea, it seemed to be eradicated. Everything is natural in these teas.  My stomach appeared to be flatter on the days I drank this tea.

The next tea was the Malibu Beauty Tea. I have only had a few cups of this so far. The tea tastes good. The purpose of this tea is help with your skin. I have fairly good skin with barely any breakouts. This will definitely help to maintain my complexion.  I like how this tea has caffeine because it gives you a bit of kick.

I have had a great experience with Newport Skinny Tea. I received my teas quickly in a cute pink bag. I have already recommended them to my friends. By just drinking a cup of tea each morning you can begin to change your lifestyle and improve your health.

I have a special code for my readers "Jasmine25" to get 25% off your next order!

Be sure to check out Newport Skinny Tea on their social media sites and also on their website. They have some great sales right now which will save you some money. They recently launched a new tea called Newport Skinny Cocoa Tea. I am excited for this because it is a healthier alternative than Hot Chocolate.


*I was sent this tea to review. I guarantee these are my honest thoughts*

2014: A Year in Review

Happy New Year Everyone!

2014 was like every year, it had its ups and downs but mostly it had its ups. I was happy that I blogged more consistently then previous years.  I thought I would do a quick recap of this year. I was more adventurous with my style and was happy to buy things from different stores and wear some things I've never worn before.  This year I had many different looks and after reviewing these I don't think I can just define my style under one category.

In terms of personal things, I became an aunty this year to a beautiful baby girl, I started a new job and have already excelled, started working on my designation in Insurance and traveled to Toronto and Maine. I am very happy with what I achieved and can't wait to see how this year will turn out.

My New Year's Resolution is to focus on blog and youtube channel this year. I want to continuously be bringing my readers new and exciting content. I hope you enjoy!

I wish nothing but the best for all my readers in this upcoming year!

What was your favourite look from 2014?
