Influenster // Hello Flavour Vox Box

Hey guys, I’m back with a new post. I know I haven’t been posting the most since I’ve been back but I definitely want to get back into blogging.

Recently I received a complimentary box of items to try from Hello Fresh in partnership with Influenster. I was extremely surprised and happy with all the items I received in my box.

In my box I received 2 items from Club House, the Brown Sugar & Bourbon Mix-In and Spicy Montreal Steak Spice. Along with a bottle of Frank’s Red Hot Sauce and a coupon from French’s.

This past weekend I was about to try out both of the Club House items that I received and I was super impressed. Unfortunately, I forgot to take pictures of how the food turned out. But I’m definitely going to purchase the mix-in and create some great burgers with it. I will definitely be using the Hello Flavour site to try out new recipes and hopefully I will be able to share with you how they turned out in the future.

From French’s I decided to use the coupon to purchase some mustard. You can’t have a BBQ without some great mustard. I’ve always used French’s in the past and recently ran out and I was happy I was able to get a new bottle.

I’m super impressed with the items I received and I will continue to use them when I’m cooking. And because I was so happy with the Club House ingredients, I will definitely look into trying more.

Haul // Essie Spring 2018 Collection

Hey loves, I’m back with a new nail polish haul post. If you haven’t noticed I love nail polish and one of my favourite brands is Essie. No matter how many nail polishes I have, I will always continue to purchase their limited edition collections.

This collection consists of 6 beautiful shades perfect for Spring going into Summer. If you saw my previous post I wore Bon Boy-age which I believe complimented my complexion.

In this collection there is:

Bon Boy-age -a nautical mint green in a cream finish

Perfect Mate – a pristine pop of coral pink in a cream finish

At The Helm – a fire orange with a hint of salmon red in a cream finish

Pass-port to Sail – a sandy beige with an ivory shimmer in a sheer finish

Anchor Down – a preppy blue with pewter grey undertones in a cream finish

Stripes & Sails – an intense teal green in a cream finish

I’m really in love with all the colours that came in this collection and hopefully I will be able to share with you how they look on me over the next few weeks. Definitely stay tuned for more posts and hauls.

Have a lovely weekend!

Mani Monday // Essie Bon Boy-age

Hey loves, I’m back with a new mani Monday post. If you guys weren’t aware I’m a huge fan of nail polish and especially limited edition nail polish collections. Usually I don’t miss out on purchasing new polishes, even though my collection is growing completely out of hand but there will always be room for more.

I recently purchased some new polishes Essie and I fell in love with all the colours. This beautiful shade is from the Spring 2018 collection, I will definitely be doing a post soon on all the colours in this collection.

Bon Boy-age is a beautiful nautical mint green with a cream finish. I found that this polish applied with ease, like many of the other Essie polishes that I own. It was opaque with just one coat but I always apply 2 just to be on the safe side. I was able to wear this polish for about 10 days prior to it chopping and I received many compliments on this colour.

For this manicure I used the Essie First Base coat and the Good to Go top coat. Usually I switch up my base and top coats pending on what product I have I hand at the time.

Definitely stay tuned and I will be coming back to share with you more polishes from my collection and hopefully you enjoy these posts. Leave me a comment down below sharing with me what your favourite polish brand is or what you are currently wearing on your fingers, I would love to hear about it.

Have an amazing week!

FOTD // 01.03.18

Hey loves, I’m back with my first beauty post of 2018. I figured that this year would be a year for growth on both my blog and YouTube channel. And for me to achieve those goals, I actually have to start wearing all the products that I purchase and share with you guys the look I created with them. To start off the year, I decided to wear a very simple but put together look for work. It was my first day back after having 3 days off. I can’t wait to share more looks, once I start playing with more colors over the next few weeks.

Happy 2018!

Hey loves, I’m back! Yes, I know I say this all the time. But I really wanted to stay connected with everyone. I hope everyone had an amazing Christmas and New Year! I stayed pretty busy at work and school and I’m happy to see 2017 go and for the new adventures for 2018. I just wanted to stop by with a quick Hi and to let you guys know that I will be back posting. Hopefully a couple times a week but we will see how everything works out with school and work.

Review // Kat Von D Saint & Sinner Fragrances

Hey loves, I just wanted to come share with you my thoughts on the Kat Von D fragrances. I did receive these from Influenster, complimentary, to try out and I’m super thankful for the opportunity. I remember while working at Sephora about 5 years ago, these fragrances were popular and people were always asking about them. Then we slowly didn’t care them anymore. Back then I wasn’t really into branching out and trying new fragrances and I stuck to the ones I loved. I remember was we stopped carrying her fragrances people would constantly come in and see if they were in stock and now I can understand why they were so popular.

Out of the 2 fragrances, I definitely think that Saint is my favorite. It’s a little more sweet with floral notes. I find that with this fragrance it wears well and it’s not overbearing, which is great for work. I think this scent is perfect for the summer months. It just gives me happy vibes whenever I wear it. Also, I have already finished my bottle that I received, I enjoyed it that much. The key notes in this fragrance are Vanilla, Musk, and Jasmine. Even though this scent has Vanilla, I don’t hate it. Typically I find vanilla to over barring but this has the perfect blend to it. I will definitely purchase a roller ball of this fragrance once I finish a few bottles in my collection.

Now finally, Sinner. This fragrance is beautiful as well and wears beautifully. With this scent, I find it a little heavier and I enjoy wearing it more in the evenings. Don’t get me wrong you definitely could wear it during the day but for me, I prefer it at night. Sinner is a bit spicier but you can still smell a hint of floral. The key notes in this fragrance are Patchouli, Wood, and Cinnamon. For myself, I think this scent is beautiful and I will definitely be wearing it once Fall hits.

 

FOTD // 05.23.17

Hey loves, I’m back with a new FOTD post. I haven’t done one of these in ages and I really want to get back into the blogging. It definitely gives me a creative outlet and I want to put back some effort into it. Usually I will get all done up with my makeup and be like I will post about it tomorrow and it never happens. So today I’m not going to be lazy and put it off and share with you the look I wore to work today.

This look was super easy to do. I honestly only used one palette, Urban Decay Naked Smokey, to create this look. Today, I was running super late for work and I wanted my makeup to match my outfit. Not so much in color but I looked put together and I wanted to look just as amazing with my makeup. Not saying I have to wear makeup to look great but I wanted to complete the look . I did film this look, so if you follow my YouTube channel you will see it later this week.
