Avon A Box | The New (almost) Subscription Box

avon a box nov oct 2017 (2)
::: press sample :::

When I first learned about beauty subscription boxes (a few years ago, by now) I was immediately interested. The thing was, as a Canadian I had to wait it out as there were none shipping here. Fast forward to present day, and there are a litany of boxes shipping worldwide. Such progress! Of course, a lot of have overdosed on boxes (I know I have) and no longer subscribe with such vigor. Avon has a new box that takes the idea of a subscription box, but makes it a little more user friendly.

I would say happy Fall, but it really isn't feeling very fall yet... It's is straight up hot here. I'm not impressed *insert pouty face*. Unlike Mother Nature and the non-changing seasons, Elizabeth Arden is delivering as promised with a few new products for the eyes.

Tweezers Gone Glam | La Tweez Pro Illuminating Tweezers with Diamond Dust Tips

la tweez pro illiminating tweezers (7)::: press sample ::: 

It's fancy tweezer day! You may be thinking that you don't need fancy tweezers, but I might just be able to change your mind. I know I am not one to put a whole lot of effort into my tweezer choices, especially not since I started wearing false lashes. I swear, every pair of tweezers I have (and there more than a few, more than one person truly needs) is sticky from grabbing them to pop lashes on. I will not let these La Tweez tweezers suffer that fate though. You'll have to read on to find out why...

Toothy Talk | Natural Dental Care with Humble Brush, Nelson Naturals & Radius

toothy talk natural dental care (6)::: press sample / I bought it :::

I know, when you think beauty blog you automatically think dental care, right?! Kidding. But really, I kind of love dental stuff- toothpaste, toothbrushes, floss... Dorky, perhaps, but most of us have teeth and spend a few moments a day tending to them. Day in day out. You might as well give your routine a little shake up every now and again, and maybe add in something a little more natural too.

::: press sample :::

I've been a bit of a bod blogger... I kind of (okay, totally) forgot about what was meant to be a monthly feature: The Sweet Tooth. Ooops? I really don't know how I did it, but whatever the reason, it's back! The very friendly peeps at Waterbrige sent a few of their new goodies after I featured some of their British candies (or sweeties, if you want to be all proper.) Their new Smooth & Creamy range features four milk chocolate bars, sure to please just about everyone, because really, who can pass up chocolate?

Sweet Meets Icy | Juicy Couture Viva la Juicy Glacé

Do you ever get one specific song in your head and it's all you can think about? I've been obsessed with John Lennon's Mother the last few days and it is all I've wanted to listen to. I'm trying to ration my consecutive listenings, but it's just too good! I've just realized this doesn't really tie into our scent of the day, but sometimes intros just don't work that way. Anyway, Juicy Couture is back with a new edition to their popular scent family: Viva la Juicy Glacé

Dermalogica Age Smart | Nightly Lip Treatment & Antioxidant Hydramist

Happy Thursday! I am in a particularly great mood today, I think in part to the mini dance party I ended up having in the shower this morning. No worries, I have a non-slip mat (this cute one!) There is just something about shower music that makes me supremely happy. Anyway, it feels like a skincare day, does it not? I can always go for a bit of skincare, but I know not everyone is as keen as I am. So, today is all about anti-aging skincare in the form of two new additions to the Dermalogica Age Smart range with their Nightly Lip Treatment & Antioxidant Hydramist.

You know what September means... Pumpkin spice everything! Wait, no. I mean, yeah it does, but that's not what quite what I was thinking. It's back to school season! Now, if you're like me, you haven't been back to school in a few years. Whatever. I still get a bit excited about the season as I happen to be a major lover of school supplies (aka stationary) and take every chance to pick up new additions to my stash. That said, there are also beauty finds to be... well, found. Quo is offering up some most excellent option this year that are sure to please just about everyone from makeup newbies to seasoned collectors.

Happy Friday, blog fans! To wrap up the blog week, we're going to be chatting about a few new additions to the Maison Jacynthe range. I featured a few products (here) not all that long ago, and was more than pleased to select a few new products to feature. The new additions to the range include fluid foundation, highlighter, and nail polish giving the brand a bit of everything you could want. Plus, like all products from the brand, happen to be natural and organic, free of undesirable things like chemicals, petroleum by-products, preservatives and synthetic fragrance.

Well, as it is, at least one more. Avon has made showers a bit more fun & foamy (and hydrating) with their newest Skin So Soft offering...

The Fast Five | Drugstore Edition

::: press sample / I bought it  / affiliate links :::

The Fast Five is back, and I know, I have a way for making what I intend to be quick, mini-reviews into full-on novels, but I am trying to keep these mini. For real this time. Anyway, this edition sees us strolling along the drugstore beauty aisles. Close your eyes... set the scene. You can almost hear the sales associate recommending the worst possible foundation match off in the distance...

Peony Power | L'Occitane Pivoine Sublime Skincare

loccitane pivoine sublime skincare (3)::: press sample affiliate links :::

I'm breaking my self-imposed rules and starting the blog week off with skincare. I tend to like to start with something a bit more colourful, but in the case of the L'Occitane Pivoine Sublime range, you're still getting a dose of pretty hues thanks to all the pink. If you hadn't noticed, everything in this range comes clad in shades of pink. As you've likely also deduced, everything features peony with the promise of "perfection upon first contact." Sounds promising, right?
