Review: Michael Kors Bedford Large Leather Zip Clutch and Ordering from Net-A-Porter

I recently got the iPhone 6 and knowing my lifestyle I also got an otterbox case for it. And then I was presented with huge problem as it was not only too big for my current wristlet but also too big for most wristlets for carrying iPhones. And I generally only carry a wristlet around. So I went on a mission to find one on sale at maybe Macy's or Nordstrom or something. I was looking at the Michael Kors/ Marc Jacobs/ Kate Spade price point. And nada nothing. Everything was either not the right size or way too expensive. And that I managed to find a "clutch" on Net-A-Porter. It was not on sale or anything and that made me cry a bit, but I bought it anyway. And here are my thoughts on it in case fellow giant phone cases people need one.

Review: Skinfood Black Sugar Strawberry Wash-Off Mask Review

This is a pretty surprising product for me to review. I usually stay very far away from physical exfoliators and anything harsh. But I read so many good reviews about this stuff, even from people with dry and sensitive skin. So I had to give it a go. Especially because the scent was rumored to be out of this world.

June 2015 Glossybox

So I have to make a confession, I actually cancelled Glossybox a long time ago, but my mother still gets it. And now that I'm living with her, I get to sneakily try all of her makeup products. So I thought I would do a review for old times sake.

Review: MAC Soar Lipliner

I've really liked my other two MAC liners, so I thought I would get something that was a little darker than a MLBB color. Plus everyone raves about this. So why not.

Makeup Geek Shadows in Cupcake and Cosmopolitan

I finally decided to try out Makeup Geek shadows. I know I'm quite behind with the times. But I recently got one of those MAC fill your own palettes and since I had the space, I decided to try out different types of shadows. What a logical way of thinking. I do really hate z palettes though. So I needed to get these babies a home before trying them out. I decided to get the colors "Cupcake" and "Cosmopolitan" since I love pinky shades.

May 2015 Empties

Todays empties might be a bit sparse. And that is for several reasons. First of all, I recently moved to Florida, so I tried to use up all my stragglers to put less stuff in my luggage. Secondly, I moved to Florida and with the huge change in temperature and humidity, I can't really use all of my old products. But I still managed to finish off some things.

Mini Sephora Birthday Haul

Why bother going to a physical Sephora for your birthday gift, when you can just use that as an excuse for a mini online haul? Sounds reasonable to me.

January/February Favourites

I was going to put this up in January, but I'm afraid that I got a little lazy. So I decided to just do a combination of months, and add the things I have been loving in February too. Some of these items are new to me, and others are old favorites that I still love.

January 2014 Empties

Here's to another empties post. At the end of April, I'll be moving from my house. And I already have so much stuff that I've been trying to use up all the things I have and not buy new ones. So I don't need like 10 uhauls. Therefore, my empties have been pretty impressive lately. For me at least, because I used to have like 10 bottles of lotion open at the same time.

January 2014 Birchbox

Another month, another Birchbox. I'm still pretty pleased with what I get. And I love their point system, so I probably won't cancel anytime soon. Let's Do This.

Review: Pocketderm

I ended up getting a Pocketderm subscription last November, because I was just really fed up with my acne. I've never had bad acne, but enough to the point where it bothered me. And I was using, Tretinoin, BHA's, and being really careful about products. In the end, I figured it was hormonal, and this was the best I could get it with topical medications. But guess what. I was wrong. Pocketderm has helped me skin tremendously and I've finally gotten around to doing a review on it.

Haul: Packages Received over Break.

I usually forget about holidays when ordering packages, so I go on vacation, come back, and then there are like 10 boxes waiting for me. But that's never a problem, because it's like Christmas all over again. This is going to be kind of a random haul, but there are definitely some good things that I want to share.

Travel Edition: Empties and Favourites

I've spent the last couple of weeks in Florida, so I don't really have enough products with me to do either a full empties or favorites. I thought I would combine the two instead, and show you what I really use on vacation. Because I tend to keep both my makeup and nails pretty minimal.
