About a month ago I was contacted by a very lovely employee of the LookBookStore.com, which is an online fashion store. Vanessa invited me to be apart of their “blogger program” to help promote a couple of their items. She was nice enough to send me two items for free to enjoy and review for you lovely birds out there! ❤
Seeing as the weather has taken a huge turn and we await the arrival of the snow, the items I chose were to keep warm, but stay fashionable at the same time 😉 . My first item is this “oversized” knit cardigan, now.. It COULD be oversized if I was 5’5″, being 5’8″ though, this is more just a medium-long cardigan. The sleeves don’t reach my wrists which doesn’t really bother me, the zipper is a bit on the cheap side, other than that i love this knit cardigan! ❤ I think it would be even more awesome if it had a hood! Just sayin ❤
This knit cardigan costs $42.00. You can find it here!
My next was my favorite thing on the entire website! Which is this WICKED “Black Faux Fur Coat”. I’m super excited to wear this for halloween, and throughout the winter! This actually keeps me pretty dang warm and fits me PERFECT. This retails at $86.00 & is sooo soft yet fierce!
You can purchase the coat here!:
I love love looove the products I was sent and I highly recommend checking out their selection! Thanks again Vanessa you were very well spoken and understanding to my needs and questions! x
Recently I’ve been on the hunt for cheap candles in glass container/wear and have found it rather difficult coming across candles that aren’t $10+. Unless of course you are at Dollorama which nothing is less than $3 but sometimes not what you’re looking for. Sometime last week I made my way into town, alllll the way to the Canadian Wholesale and have found these adorable $1.25 vanilla bean “starlytes”. They smell e-x-a-c-t-l-y like vanilla cake with Betty Crocker’s vanilla icing…. You know the one, and they come in these adorable “mason jar” looking containers. LOVE!
Over the past year or so, i’ve been experimenting with different drug store face wash’. I finally feel like I have hit the jack pot with this one! ST.Ives Naturally Clear, Green Tea Scrub, smells absolutely divine. It has a very mild scrub to it, and leaves your face feeling amazingly fresh and soft. It contains salicylic acid which is an acne treatment, which really does make a noticeable difference after washing your face. I’m pretty sure you can pick this up at almost any drug store & I will definitely be picking this one up again.
I got this argan oil for a christmas present, probably about 3 years ago. Which is absolutely ridiculous that I didn’t really start using it until last year. I did come across this product at Wall-Mart for only $10, and I believe that any human that applies heat or dye of any sort should have a bottle of argan oil. It is so unbelievably repairing for dry/fried, dead ends & damage of any kind to the hair. It really leaves your hair feeling healthy, with enough nurture for silky goodness! I brought this to Mexico with me last November and this helped save my hair from sun damage & all the salt water swimming can be harsh on your hair. I’ve been using it ever since. Also this bottle will last you what will seem for ever, I only use a drop ever time I get out of the shower. I do find if i use too much (over 2 drops) it can leave me hair feeling a bit oily, hence the argan “oil”.
If you come across this white tea & blueberry at the store, pick it up! It is sooo yummy! The only ingredients are filtered water, cane sugar, white tea, natural blueberry flavour and citcric acid. They also have just a regular ice tea which is also delicious. Random, simple and very worth trying 😉
I feel I owe an explanation for being absent and not blogging as constant as I would like to, for you and myself. I’ve got a bit of an update: I bought myself a gym pass and will be going 3 times a week, once i’m happy with my appearance and all toned up i’ll be posting before and after photos n_n I went on wednesday and i’m going again today 🙂
I haven’t had much to blog about lately becase i’ve been working 6-7 days a week 9 hour days, so I literally am not doing anything that is worth blogging about. Which has also kept me from filming, I want to make another video so bad, however i’m sooo worn out and want to be presentable and have the energy to get through these videos and make them worth watching. I have a couple things on their way in the mail.. i also will be getting 2 days off a week starting next week! So I will have hopefully more motivation to start filming again!
How have you all been? If you read through this whole post, please reply below with your favorite moment of this summer so far! Would love to get to know some things about my readers ❤
I cannot believe how fast June is flying by.. it’s kind of sad because i had all these things i wanted to accomplish this month and haven’t really found time for anything. Not to mention this is my fourth time trying to post this mother fuckin blawg. I put quite a bit of time into it the first 3 times.. Then i pressed published and it would be empty, so i am smart enough to copy this post at least this time.. Hoping i won’t have to paste it in 20 minutes.. Anywho! On with the blog!
Claw Bracelet I ordered off of ebay, unfortunately the store I ordered off of is no longer on ebay for what ever reason, but i’m sure you can find loads of cheap ones on there! As for the mascara wasn’t a favorite of mine, for those who want big, bold, butterfly flapping eyelashes like myself, this is not for you. Suggestions are welcome!
The Sunglasses are from Forever 21, the link is in my previous blog ;3
I picked up some AG hair products finally, because i’m soo fucking tired of wasting my money on all these drugstore products to only have them disappoint me in the end. (long time AG lover, just broke as a joke so haven’t been able to afford anything nice until currently)Anyone out there that may be reading this.. Give up the drugstore products you and i both know that there is no hope. As for the bath bomb, i haven’t had a bath bomb since like.. junior high or even elementary possibly, so i’m excited to use this in the near future.
Will be doing review on hair products in the future n_n
No luck on finding the manual online or anywhere. Hoping my mum will be able to track it down at her place. So until that is found i still feel like being creative… So for tomorrow since im tired and burnt out now and it’s only 8:32 in the evening.. i’m going to do some research DIY/craft projects to start and i’m going to start being more productive physically so i have more to show and hopefully can start selling some of my stuff! <– Big dreamin right now, all behold the motivational liar! Hahaha me.
I might as well not post what my ideas are and start drawing them out so nobody steals them! Even though i will be the one stealing 😛
I don’t know about you, but i am all over the place a lot of the time doing as many things as possible in a day. I finally had the motivation to get my sewing machine out finally after having it under my desk for a year and a half haunting me. So i have it on top of my desk now, looking up the manual that i don’t have while watching low budget horror movies. I got the Midnight Horror collection vol 8 and 9 i believe is somewhere which they both contain 8 movies on each collection.
I guess i am suppose to be around an interview tonight which i’m not really apart of so i don’t see the point of me being there. I am also working with an agency photographer and have a bunch of photo’s i’m working on to be on the agency website and in portfolio’s which is sweet and productive on my side of things. No money involved yet but that’s why i have to get onto an agency website with my edits and being published in a magazine before anyone should really want to pay me anyways for work! Although i did get one offer and i haven’t gotten to it because i feel like i’m juggling too much right now that i forgot about the dishes i had soaking in the hot water, went back did the dishes made tea and here i am with my sewing machine unthreaded.
What were your new year resolutions? If you had any.
I never have really had one that i’ve followed through with.. Nothing that was too important. This year is different, i set my goal for being published this year sometime. It’s only the beginning of April and i can already taste it. I have quite a few submissions lined up for my retouching with various photographers i’m working with. So because i believe in myself and believe that i will be publish in the near future my next goal is going to start taking place.
In the summer or late spring when we make it down to Vancouver (me and my boyfriend that is) I will be setting up appointments for castings to become an agency model. It may not be as glamorous as we all think but i really would like to give it a chance for i am tall skinny and am told i am photogenic, i love photography but would like to come into the fashion industry from multiple angles if possible! So i am starting to eat very healthy starting today, no wheat and less meat! haha that can be my new slogan! 😛 I’m going to be drinking tons of water and taking my vitamins. I am also going to start exercising 3 times a week is my goal. Mondays is turbo fitness for 45 minutes at the gym with the ladies from the shore, i’m going to start walking along the road that goes along the lake side so i can get my beauty in as well! I would like to start doing more yoga so i become more flexible.
Saying all this will hopefully help motivate me,i might as well post a before an after image for my progress and what not.
If any of you are interested in doing this with me, it could help us both have more motivation so if anyone is interested in getting healthy and in shape! Let me know!
