Pearlesque Box | May 2018 Delia Organics

How is this the end of April? My April was a relatively messy month. It was stressful, unorganized, and in terms of my blog life, less than productive. But, as it likes to be, life is unpredictable. What's not though, is Pearlesque Box (see that perfect segue?) I mean, what's a better way to start the month than with a few new skincare goodies? The May box features a second round of Delia Organics (who made their debut appearance last April) and includes four great products.

The Un-Nudes | Maybelline SuperStay Matte Ink Lip Colour

I know, we're smack-dab in the middle of a gloss come-back, but I'm taking us back to mattes for a moment. We all know they're truly here to stay anyway, right? So, as much as I enjoy a little liquid lipstick, I can't say I've taken any time to venture into the world of drugstore options. Matte formulas can be drying enough without adding in a cheaper formula. No thanks, right? Well, Maybelline will have you changing your minds with their SuperStay Matte Ink Lip Colour. The range has been on the scene for a minute, but the Un-Nudes have won my matte loving heart.

This vs That | Avon Anew vs Mary Kay Sheet Mask Edition

::: press sample :::

It's a battle of the ages... Avon in one corner, Mary Kay in the other. To non-beauty people (t seems they really do exist) both brands are basically interchangeable: women (for the most part) selling beauty products to women MLM style. True, but beauty people know there is more that makes the brands. Both do lipsticks remarkably well, but when it comes to sheet masks who reins supreme? I know, you could cut the tension with a knife...

Love Letters | oNecklace Monogrammed Rose Gold Jewellery

Happy Monday, blog fans! Okay, it might be Tuesday by the time you're actually reading this, so adjust accordingly... Day aside, hopefully it's at the very least decent. It's about to get a smidgen better, if you like rose gold at least. And really, who doesn't? Speaking of, have you seen the new Smashbox Petal Metal Collection? AMAZING! But let's get back on topic... Rose gold is just straight up gorgeous. I think we can all agree. I'll assume all heads are nodding in solid agreement. oNecklace, makers of an impressive range of custom jewellery, know the allure of rose gold. As such, they offer it as a finish on their sterling silver pieces. I am usually iffy about plating on jewellery, as you just never know how it will stand up, but having a few oNecklace pieces (and loving them) I decided to take a chance on a few rosy gems and am so glad I did.

Remember when I said it was the season of hair products? I'm pretty sure I did... Anyway, we've got more hair care to chat about in the form of the cute little Garnier Fructis Hair Treat 1 Minute Masks. Okay, that's a lot of name for a little product, but these conditioning wonders do make for a nice hair pick-me-up.

Summer Pedi Prep | FarmHouse Fresh Pedi Delight Instant Pedicure Sampler

So, it seems like Spring is going to be delayed... It started lightly snowing last night. You know, the cute, fluffy stuff that usually melts as soon as it hits the ground? Yeah, except it didn't melt. It accumulated. Ugh. I've been so ready for spring that I am not even going to deny that I'm a bit heartbroken . I was stashing away winter clothes, digging out warmer weather shoes... Is everyone else really tired of heavy winter footwear? As ready as I am to slide into something lighter and brighter, I know my feet are in need of a little extra attention. See where this is going?
