Not a beauty post – summer jewelry trends I want to see

1 Jun

I love the 90’s.  Like, LOVE the 90’s.  I love the decade when Victoria Beckham was know as Posh Spice. I still watch SpiceWorld, okay?  What?  You have never seen it?  OMG, the best, treat yourself and watch it. “And I’m Victoria, Malcolm!!!!”   Buzzfeed did a piece on this masterpiece.

Thinking of the 90’s and its fashion trends, I’m hoping that anklets and toe rings make a come back this summer.  What, you hate them?  Pssshhhh. They are pure awesome.  Check out these:

anklet1

$11.47 from BeckeringhDesign

anklet2

$15.00 from 88Links

anklet3

$21.95 ChanyaAndFriends

anklet4

I love this for the beach!

$26.50 NightingaleWorkshop

ToeRing1

$14.79 WormChildJewellery

toering2

$20.00+ Carteohandmade

Toering3

$18.00 cutterstone

I think the smoother the toe ring, the more comfortable it will be to wear.  Big designs or stones can hurt.

What do you think of fancy feet?  Do you like jewelry around your ankle or toes?

Fragrance Review – Pacifica Island Vanilla Perfume Roll-On

16 Jul

 I bought a Pacifica Island Vanilla Perfume Roll-On for me and for my friend because I liked it so much!

It’s $12.00 for .33 ounces of fragrance.  I love that it’s a roll on because you can just throw it in your make up for the summer and use whenever.

My thoughts

It smells like a spicy vanilla.  Super fun for summer.

The scent is light and you need to reapply after some time.

I love Pacifica products because they are more natural than others on the market!

Have you tried Pacifica?

Do you like it?

June Empties!!!! What I Used Up!

1 Jul

How is it July already?   This year is flying by faster then Kim Kardashian changing husbands.  Oh snap!

I went through a lot of products in June.  Check this!

Hair stuff

wpid-20140629_120919.jpg

Matrix Total Results Color Care Conditioner.  This is my current fave.  I’ve been using it for a few months.  I love it….but I’m getting bored.  I’ve been getting interested in TIGI again.  I love how that smells too.

wpid-20140629_121012.jpg

Nexxus Color Assure Shampoo and Conditioner.  This was a Birchbox sample.  Honestly, the samples were so small there wasn’t enough of either product for my hair.  Based on how much I was able to work into my hair, not impressed.   This may be due to how tiny the samples were.  Whatevers…I won’t be buying it.  If companies really want us to fall in love with a product, you need to give us an amount we can actually use.

wpid-20140629_121114.jpg

Fleur de Temps conditioner.  This was another Birchbox item.  Strangely, this came with shampoo of which there was a lot more than the conditioner.  Why?

This claims to be volumizing and it was. It frizzed me out so my hair was huge.

wpid-20140629_121136.jpg

Aveda Rosemary Mint Shampoo and Conditioner.  I got this during a recent hotel stay.   I’m not the biggest fan of Aveda, I don’t complain when my room is filled with it.  I like the way this works on my hair.  It’s a fun change.

wpid-20140629_121218.jpg

Beauty Protector Protect and Detangle Leave In.  I loved the way this smells.  It did a good job on detangling.

Big Sexy Hair Spray.  Love it!

Review – Harvey Prince Cherie Blossom fragrance

8 Apr

wpid-20140311_073059.jpg wpid-20140311_073041.jpg

Such cute packaging!

And I loved this scent.  It is so perfect for spring and summer.  It smells like cherries and sweet and lovely.  LOVE.

Downside – this did NOT last on me AT ALL.  I couldn’t smell it within an hour.  Such a bummer.

I am hoping to find something similar with better staying power.

Here is what Harvey Prince says about the fragrance:

Reawaken the young, romantic you.

The blooming of the Cherry Blossom in Japan signifies the beginning of spring: new beginnings, a new season, and a new day. It’s time to find your own new beginning with Cherie Blossom.

A handsome French man whispers “ma chérie” to his beloved. Her lips are a delicate red, and she smells of sweet cherries. She knows the power of her beauty. She is flawless. She is ageless. Notes of pink grapefruit dance down her neck–the scent of eternal youth. She is his dream.

Cherie Blossom is the epitome of both rebirth in Japan and the power of a classic French seductress. Sweet, soft hints of Somet Sakura mingle with pink grapefruit and vanilla. A cool musk adds a touch of sophistication. Together, these fragrant notes play a song no man can resist. The woman who dares to wear Cherie Blossom feels timeless, and in truth, we look the way we feel.

Notes: Somei Sakura (Cherry Blossom), Pink Grapefruit, Cool Musk, Vanilla 
Style:  Delicate. Young. Passionate.

Ipsy Glam Bag – March

1 Apr

I can’t believe I forgot to blog about this!

March Ipsy Glam Bag was fun!  Here is what I got:

This cosmetic bag was super cute this month.  Kassi got it as part of her B-Day gift.  Happy Birthday Kassi!!!!

wpid-20140317_132939.jpg

Pixi Flawless Primer – I’m surpised I like this as much as I do.  It also goes incredibly well with my L’Oreal BB Cream.  I know, seems redundant, but for some reason I really like this combo.

wpid-20140317_132945.jpg

I wasn’t super excited to get another NYX palette.  I have received a number of neutral palettes in the past few months, and I would have liked something with more fun colors.   The quality is great, as all NYX products. 

wpid-20140317_132923.jpg wpid-20140317_132903.jpg

Sorry, I couldn’t get this to focus right on my Chella eye liner.  HOW MUCH DO I LOVE THAT THIS IS BLUE.  Seriously!  The only thing that could have made this better was if it were purple.  Also this retails for $24.00 and this was a full size product.

wpid-20140317_132952.jpg

bareMineralsMarvelous Moxie™ Lipstick in Get Ready sample.  I really like this lipstick.  It feels sooooo nice on your lips and it’s a really neutral day time color.

What did you get in your Ipsy bag!!!

New Purchase! Sabon Body Scrub!!

27 Feb

Last week during a mall trip, I was talked into an expensive body scrub from Sabon.

Because, why not?  $33.00 USD is totally reasonable for oil and salt, no? Want it?  Click here.

wpid-20140219_213235.jpg

Ok, I will admit, I am also a sucker for jasmine and this smells oh so divine.

Here is a list of ingredients:

wpid-20140219_213302.jpg

Their claim?  After you use this scrub, your skin is so moisturized that you don’t need to lotion.

And you know what?  Yeah, that’s kinda true.

This was my first experience with this store and brand.  They also have a line of skin care and soaps.  I am curious about their face masks!

Have you tried a Sabon product?
