My Spring Luxebox 2014!! ♥

Hello loves! I just wanted to quickly show you the goodies I received in my Spring 2014 Edition Luxebox!! 

If you don't already know, Luxebox is a service offered by a company called Loose Button. Unlike monthly boxes, Luxebox is a quarterly subscription: one box for each season!!  Full size and deluxe size samples of beauty products (including skin, nails, fragrance, etc.) are mailed to your door for a low price, giving you the chance to try products out before actually buying them. Find them here: http://www.loosebutton.com/

From left, clockwise:
-Fekkai Brilliant Glossing Olive Oil Shampoo
-Fekkai Brilliant Glossing Olive Oil Conditioner
-Aveeno Daily Moisturising Lotion
-Knotties Hair Ties
-Captain Blakenship Mermaid Mane Sea Salt Spray
-Yves Rocher Anti-Age Global Complete Anti-Aging Day Care
-Teeez Cosmetics Easy On The Eyes Eye Pencil 

I haven't opened any of the products yet but I will post reviews once I get a chance to try them out if I really like them!! I have used the Aveeno lotion before and it does moisturise very well. However, it's unscented and I'm a girl who loooooves scents!! I'm excited to try out the Captain Blakenship spray. I've seen a lot of beauty bloggers/vloggers talk about sea salt sprays so now is my chance to give it a go! The product I'm the most excited about is the Teeez eyeliner!! Look how beautiful the packaging is!


Thanks for reading! xo

OOTD: Red Skinny Jeans!! ♥

Hello loves!! I was inspired by my friend Amber to post more outfits of the day :) She has been posting some consistently for the past few days, check her out here! I love seeing people's outfits of the day, so why not post more often? :)
 
I love how this top scrunches :) I bought it at Fairweather last summer.
 My cardigan is from Jacob.
My red skinny jeans are from Giant Tiger!! 
I'm wearing Sally Hansen's "Right Said Red" and a pink polish from Forever 21 (it doesn't have a name!).
The black glitters are already in the polish, which gives a "stonewashed" look
 when you wear 2 or 3 coats!

Thanks for reading! xo 

NOTD: Pretty Spring Nail Polishes - My Top Two Picks!

Hello loves! Spring is almost here (not quite here and won't be for awhile where I live in cold snowy Canada) and I'm super excited to get back into bright nail polishes!! My two favourite nail polish shades for spring are bright pink and teal. I purchased both these New York Color polishes at Walmart for under $2.00 CAD!
New York Color nail enamel in "Preppy Pink" (I applied three coats.)
 
I applied one coat of this fine glittery polish ("Revlon nail enamel in "Goldeneye") over
 my nails for extra shine. I've had this polish in my collection for a long while and I'm not
 sure if it's still available--it was limited edition.
New York Color nail enamel in "Tudor City Teal" (I again applied three coats.) 
I used this Rimmel London Base Coat Top Coat Pro over my nails for both manis. 
The color only started to chip after the third day of wear with both polishes!

What are your favourite nail polish colors for spring? Thanks for reading! xo

HOTD: Fake Bangs!!

Hello loves!!! I decided to purchase some fake bangs on Ebay, just for fun. I've had real bangs before and I liked the way they looked but they were high maintenance, and I unfortunately have a cow-lick!! I thought fake ones would be a fun alternative, and if I decided I didn't want bangs on a certain day, no problem, just don't wear them!!

 
 
 
Tip: Wear a headband to hide the clip ;)

The bangs I purchased were very inexpensive, about $6.00 CAD with the shipping. I would recommend spending a little more and getting real human hair if you plan on wearing them all day. These ones would be nice in the morning but get pretty staticky and messy near the end of the day. I washed them with a little shampoo and they came right back to normal however!

Would you ever wear fake bangs?? Thanks for reading :) xo
