August 2012 Empties

Hey Everyone!

I cannot believe summer is almost over.. well it seems like it is for me because I start school on Tuesday. August went by so quickly it was hard for me to even catch up to it! I didn't do as good as last months empties post.. I'm really trying to use up a lot of my samples that I get but I guess that didn't happen this month.. new goal for September I guess! Let's start reviewing!

1. Life Essentials Nail Polish Remover Dip- This is my second time reviewing this product and I like it... but I do want to try a couple more removers before I jump to loving this product. I'm really into glitter nail polishes at the moment and I keep my nail dipped about 2 min and it all comes off.. so I do think that's pretty good!

2. Burt's Bees Facial Cleanser (Sensitive)- I really liked this product! I was getting a lot of cyctic acne and since I have been using this I can honestly say I only had one breakout. The formula is on the thicker side and the smell is like clay. I would definitely buy this product again but right now I'm trying a different product!

3. Joico K-PAK Revitaluxe Restorative Treatment- To revitalize, nourish and repair hair... I'm not jumping up and down about this product and I'm not saying it's bad either. It did leave my hair pretty smooth and the smell didn't bother me.. I just wouldn't go and spend the money on this product. 

4. Clinique Even Better Dark Spot Corrector- I have never felt more ripped off over a product. I bought this because it claims it dramatically helps reverse the appearance of dark spots, age spots, skin stresses and darkening from acne scars. In just 4 weeks you should be able to see results.. I didn't see anything... please save your money and try something else.. I did like the formula.. wasn't greasy or anything.. it just didn't do any wonders for me!

5. M.A.C Zoom Fast Black Lash- I was given this sample a little while ago and I have already repurchased! I actually like this mascara and I'm only going to use it for nights out...if you like your lashes full, dark and a lot of product on them.. this is for you! 

6. Balea Sensitive Facial Wipes (unscented)- I love these little wipes.. I have been buying this brand for over a year now. It's been a love/hate relationship though. The new wipes that you can buy now are soo much better than these ones I have here.. this is a old package I'm just using up. I'm not going to buy anymore of these I'm just going to use up the ones I have because I want to try something new but go and give these a try!

7. Fresh Sugar Tinted Lip Treatment (Rose)- A little birthday sample from Sephora.. I finally got to try this product.. and I love it! I love the colour it gave on my lips and it left them feeling smooth! The smell is also a plus.. I would repurchase this in the future for sure!

8. Neutrogena All-in-One Make-up Removing Cleansing Wipes- I got this sample from the Neutrogena give away that was going on. I did not like these wipes. It didn't remove all my makeup and I don't like the smell it gave off as well. I wouldn't buy this product. 

There ya have it.. all my empties for the month of August! If you have any questions about any of the products.. please leave a comment below and I'll answer them!

Have you tried any of these products? What are your thoughts?

I headed down to the river right outside my condo to take this picture.. its soo nice to have the Detroit River to look at everyday...sometimes I feel I take it for granted!

Hey Everyone!

I just wanted to share a picture with you.. me and my boyfriend celebrated our 5 years of being together on Monday! We went out for dinner at our favourite restaurant in Windsor called Toscana and just spent some quality time together.. what more can a girl ask for? 5 years definitely goes by fast and I'm happy to be able to spend that time with a man like him :)

New Nail Polish Rack

Hey Everyone!

A couple days ago I went to lunch with my friend Stephanie and we ended up into a beauty store in Windsor. She is a hairdresser so I wanted to use her discount to my advantage to buy myself a nail polish rack! Now when we went there it was the same price for her to get it and for me to get it so there was no discount.. but I'm soo happy I finally found a nail polish rack to display my pretty colours! I have been looking on e bay for awhile now and the prices were very similar to what I spent and that didn't include shipping! I spent $35 dollars plus tax on the rack which I thought wasn't too bad but it doesn't hold all my nail polishes that I own... oh well.. I really wanted a 60 polish rack but maybe I'll just go out and buy another one! 

If your wondering what a certain colour in the rack is.... here is the list: 

From the Top- Left to Right

ORLY- Angel Face | Skinny Dip | Beach Cruiser | Va Va Voom | Glowstick | Melt Your Popsicle 

O.P.I- Rumple's Wiggin' | Sparrow Me The Drama | ElePhantastic | Mauve-Lous Memories | 
La Paz-itively Hot | Charged Up Cherry

O.P.I- Senorita Rose-Alita | That's Berry Daring | Florentine Fuchsia | I'm His Coral-Friend |
I Eat Mainely Lobster | My Chihuahua Bites! 

NUBAR- Lavender Shimmer | O.P.I- Let Me Entertain You | Show It and Glow It! | Last Friday Night |
DS Magic | An Affair in Red Square

O.P.I- Diva of Geneva | ORLY- Flagstone Rush | O.P.I- Suzi Says Da! | Yodel Me On My Cell |
Russian Navy | Whats With The Cattitude?

There ya have it some of my nail polish collection!
Here is the website I bought my rack in store from:

Any of these colours your favourite? How do you store your nail polishes?

Tanya's Wedding

Hey Everyone!

You know how I talk about how many weddings I have this year.. well another one has passed this weekend. My boyfriend and me both had to stand up this weekend in our friends wedding. It's kind of convenient because we walked down the aisle together and he was my partner for the day.. awwwww I know I know.. haha
I didn't get a really good outfit of the day picture since I was really busy doing bridesmaid duties but I got a couple pictures.. Enjoy!

Victoria's Secret Haul

Hey Everyone!

I popped over to the states to go shopping with my boyfriends mom and sister just for some girl time and bought a couple things from Victoria's Secret! After using up a lot of my lotions I had sitting around...I decided to finally try some of the lotions they have. My friend swears by the lotions and buys them every time we are over there shopping. 

Here are some of the products I bought!

I don't know if Victoria's Secret has this deal all the time but they have if you buy 3=$25 and if you buy 5=$30.... so naturally I bought 5 lotions. 
I spent seriously 45 min going around the store smelling all the lotions.. but I ended up with.....

Honeysuckle & Jasmine
White Nectarine & Peony (which I bought 2 of because the smell is sooo good)
Amber & Creme Anglaise 
Solar Jasmine & Pomelo   

I also picked up a Instant Bronze Body Spray for my white legs and a Rockin' Body Glitter Body Duster for my arms. I thought the glitter body duster would be nice for the wedding I'm standing up in this Saturday... stay tuned for a outfit photo! 

What do you think of Victoria's Secret Lotions? Do you use any of the other products?
