What I've Been Up To in April!!

Hello everyone!! April went by REALLY quickly for me! I had my final exams for uni to study for. Now I'm just waiting to see my grades before I make my next move. I might have failed a class... If I did, that means I have to retake it next year... ugh. Fingers crossed, I really hope I passed!!

In either case, it's technically summer for me now! I can finally dedicate more time to my poor neglected blog. I have many reviews and even another giveaway coming up, so stay tuned!!

I've been endulging in my favorite fast food a lot more than usual this month... I guess you can blame that on exam-related stress :3
Here is a random NOTD from April. I saw a cute Nicole by OPI polish laying around in my sister's room. It's from the Christmas collection, and I'm not sure what its called, but it's sooooo pretty!!
Hope you all had a fab month of April!  xo

Essie Nail Dressings Review

Hello lovelies!!  I really lucky to find some free samples of Essie's nail dressings in a Flare magazine I was reading! I have presviouly tried out the Sally Hansen nail strips and really loved them, so I was really excited to try these :)

 
I enjoy the fact that they do not come with extra layers of plastic to peel off: you simply peel the sticker off the backing and apply it to your nail.  The process is much simpler than the Sally Hansen nail strips in my opinion.  If the strips do not fit the exact shape of your nail, you may easily cut them with scissors to get the perfect fit!!  I applied a top coat over the stickers to ensure maximum hold.  After four days I still did not notice a simple chip!

 
 
I used these Julep polishes on the other nails: "Portia" and "Claire".
 
I really enjoyed these nail strips and I highly recommend them! They last for a very long time and the designs Essie offers are quite different from the Sally Hansen options.

Have you tried these yet? What do you think?

Thanks for reading!! xo

March: What I've Been Up to!! :)

Hi everyone :) It's been a while since I've done this type of post so I decided it was time for another one!  March actually went by really fast.  Nothing super exciting happened, unfortunately.  I've been shopping quite a bit (hello new spring clothes!!) and I will post a haul on my youtube channel once I get around to filming it.  I will have OOTDs with the new items on here as well.

 Final exams are coming up in TWO WEEKS from today!!  I've been spending a lot of time on campus going over notes, taking occasional breaks of course :3 
No study party is complete without delicious coffee ♥

Spring is finally here! I got these rainboots on Beyond the Rack for $29.99 CAD. What a bargain!!

How was your month of March? More exciting than mine I hope!! :)  Once exams are over I'll have more time for blogging.  I've been neglecting my poor blog lately :'(

Thanks for reading! xo
