May Luxe Box 2012

Hello Everyone!

Today I finally got my May Luxe box in! Almost the last day of the month... but whatever.
 I was super excited to see that the box it came in had two boxes! The regular box and a white box the says Bath and Body.

In the white Bath and Body box, it had a Venus Razor with Olay moisturizing bars on it! When I use these types of razors I still use shaving cream.. I don't know why but I feel like I still need it! I also got a sample of the Olay Regenerist Wrinkle Revolution Complex. Now I have already received this product in a previous Luxe Box and hated it.. I just can't get over the smell.. it's just too strong for me. 

There is the May edition card explaining what is in my Luxe Box for the Month and a P & G postcard that would have been cute to send to my mom on mothers day but this box came in too late. Also got a card for $20 off a 'Signature Line' subscription to Panty By Post. I think Panty By Post is such a great idea but defiantly not for my budget. I would rather go to La Senza and get my 4 panties for $25 or whatever that 
deal is... ha.

So I got...

1) Nubar Nail Polish- I am seriously in LOVE with this nail polish! I have never tried out anything from Nubar before so this product makes me very happy! I'm going to be going to a wedding this weekend so my nails will be a soft pink with this glitter nail polish on top. Love getting this full size product!

2) Orlane Manificent Hair Care Conditioner- Never have tried any Orlane products as well but I'm always happy with trying out new treatment conditioners for my very blonde hair! I'm going to use this in my shower right after this blog post! haha

3) Paco Rabanne Black XS L'exces for Him & Her- I love getting samples for me and my boyfriend. I sprayed a little sample for Her and I don't think this smell is for me. On the product card it says that since we are a Luxe Box member.. we are one of the first ones to try this fragrance.. which I thought was pretty cool but still not a scent for me.. my boyfriend can be the judge to his sample....

4) For my fourth we already went over this........ its the Olay product yet again.. this will be my 3rd time getting this product. I just think its funny how I got the product in the white box and then again in the black box.. what were they thinking? Oh well... my mom actually likes this product so I'm giving her all 3 of my samples of this. I really do hope I don't get this product again!

Overall... I do like this box.. minus the Olay products. I am very happy to get a full size nail polish and razor. Love getting a razor that I can try out and don't have to go and pay for! My only tip for Luxe Box this month would be keep track of the samples you give to people... they don't want repeating products. I know I don't because the whole reason I got this subscription is to find out new products and products I have never heard of before! :)

How was your May Luxe Box?

Nail Polish of the Day!

The nail polish that I have been crazy about for the last couple weeks would be from the new Orly "Feel the Vibe" collection. That would be the bright pink colour I have been loving! I have also jumped on the band wagon and have been wearing the one colour different on my ring fingers. I have been getting a lot of compliments on and yes.. I am not the greatest nail polish painter either :P

Loose Button Summer Trends 2012

Loose Button had a contest on their facebook page and I just decided.. why not.. I'll enter and maybe I'll win... and I did! I called my friend Jaz right away and told her that I won this contest and she had to come with me.. and of coarse she did.. and I did promise just a little bit of shopping before the event... since there is no Zara even remotely close to me :(. I was sooo nervous going to this event. I didn't know what to expect because I have never been to anything like this. I do live in Windsor and made a 4 hour drive just to go for the day.. yep I'm a trooper! It was fun though. When arriving at the Dermalogica headquarters we were greeted by the staff there and the owners of Loose Button. They had a room set up with appetizers and finger foods with bottles of wine and sparkling water. No wine for me since I had to drive.. but my friend did indulge. Best part was the cute cupcakes they had displayed.. and yes I had two of them. There were stations set up with the sponsors products and we roamed around looking at them. When it was presentation time with Chantel Guertin...we sat down and listened. Chantal is such a good speaker and loved all of her tips and tricks about the summer trends happening. I had such a good time and my friend did too. On our way out we were given parting gift bags which were a nice treat and very thoughtful! I didn't take any pics of the event from the nervousness.. so here is what we got in out gift bags!

Thanks again Loose Button!

Anthropologie Birthday Discount Lusting

Umm yeppers... its ma birthday next month and I cannot wait to be getting my birthday discount from Anthropologie. Its seriously my favourite time of the year and Anthropologie is my favourite clothing store. I wish I could buy everything in the store at times but I'm holding out for this baby... The Melora Dress. Its sooo pretty and the lace detail in the back are to die for. I cannot justify paying the full price for this dress but since I'm going to be getting a discount... I might as well put it to good use! Plus I'll look snazzy for my birthday! Are you lusting over anything lately at Anthropologie?

Hello Everyone!

It's the first wedding of the year and I was super excited for it! The first out of 4 weddings I have and I'm standing up in 3 of them! We had to turn down 2 weddings already... because of the craziness. At first when trying on this dress, I thought it looked a little childish but when we were on the beach and Maggie was saying "I do" the dress looked beautiful in picture. She had a vision and I'm glad she stuck to it! At the end of the night though.. this dress needed to be off that's for sure! During ceremony everything was fine.. they said their I dos and they popped champagne and right after we all got our glasses it started to rain and then started to downpour. A little good luck just for them! How crazy is that? Congrats on the wedding you two!
