I hope I won't "lose" any of you during this "transition"!

Trendy Thursday - Fabric Inspired


Hello lovelies and welcome to another edition of Trendy Thursday with Stacy and Meera. 
 This week our challenge was Fabric Inspired and I really had no idea what to do. I started with my base coat and put on a white polish. I looked down at the shorts I was wearing and decided why not do this pattern, it was an array of multi-coloured zig zags.This was a challenge but I fought through. 


Today's Mani: Fabric Inspired
My Take: Colourful zig zags
Polishes Used: Jordana "White", a multitude of red, yellow, purple, blue and orange stripers






Now head over to Meera at Pajamas n Pearls and see her Trendy Thursday post.

Review - "Broadway Nails imPRESS Press-on Manicure" (Influenster Spring Fever VoxBox)

I received these Impress Press on Manicure from Influenster in my Spring Fever VoxBox free of charge for review. 
Now I'm not really a fan of these press on nails since I don't really keep long nails. I try to keep mines at a manageable length since I do laundry and cook and all that. 

Nevertheless I attempted to try it and see if it would hold up to laundry and all the water I am always in. 

It's a black and iridescent animal print which is really pretty.  






So according to the package it's really simple to put on. Measure with your nails so that you have to right size, peel off the clear plastic and apply sticking down firmly. It also states that it last for up to one week.

I somehow can't seem to keep one thing on my nails for long. I keep on this manicure for 4 days before I got tired of seeing it. It is a really nice design but I just couldn't seem to keep it on.


















I am impressed with it I must say, even after four days it was still holding on strong (considering i'm always in water). It comes off easy when you start from the sides and even when they were off it was still a bit sticky.

To see more of these Impress nail designs which are available head over to their website http://impressmanicure.com

I am really looking forward to wearing these again.

I rate this product:

Haul Me - Pennywise (Princes Town)


Good morning, afternoon, evening , night. 
Wherever you are on this earth. 

I picked up just these 3 things at Pennywise in Princes Town and I decided to share them with you . 



First off a Santee Duo of Mascara and Liquid Eye Liner - $12.00
I'm not a fan of the mascara it has an odd smell, however the eyeliner is pretty good. 

A pack of Clear Up Blemish Patches - $15.95
It contains 30 clear circle patches and it is mostly supposed to be worn during the night. I haven't seen any remarkable differences since using it. But then again I don't always remember to put it on. 

Beauty Treats BB Cream - $25.00
It consists of 4 shades and I am the darkest shade of Butterscotch, It goes on smoothly and since I've been wearing it I have been getting a lot of compliments. It goes on lightly but for better coverage you can do another layer. My only concern is that there is a white shadow when taking out pictures with flash. It gives you a really white appearance. However if you're not taking any pictures it works very well. 

So that's my little with a little review as well. 

Until next time 

XOXO

Review - TastyKake Kandy Bar Kakes (Influenster Spring Fever VoxBox)


I love sweets and I love trying out new candy bars and chocolate bars and all that. When I saw this TastyKake bar I instantly wanted to try it. 




It comes in 3 flavors S'mores, Peppermint and Peanut Butter. It basically looked and tasted like a graham cracker cake covered in chocolate with marshmellowy icing goodness in the centre.

Now the used by date on mine was 05/23/13, however I received mines on 05/06/13 which is approximately 2 weeks after the use by date. I am pleased to say it still tasted good. I really like the creaminess of the filling and I've never had S'mores but if that is anything like the real thing then I love it.

Visit the Tastykakes website to learn more about their tasty kakes. 

I only wished they sold them where I live.

Influenster Spring Fever VoxBox

Hi guys

So Influenster sent me their Spring Fever VoxBox and I must say I was really excited to qualify for and receive this box. 

In it includes products sent to be reviewed. 


My Spring Fever VoxBox contained the following: 


  • Secret Outlast Clear Gel Antiperspirant / Deodorant
  • Broadway Nails Impress Press on Manicure
  • Schwarzkopf Professional Osis Gelastic
  • Tastykake Kandy Bar Kakes in S'mores

Review - Secret Outlast Clear Gel Deodorant

I received this Secret Outlast Clear Gel Antiperspirant/Deodorant in my Spring Fever VoxBox from Influenster. 




This is what the product looks like. 



Okay this Deodorant really impressed me and I am seriously in love with it. I wore it while I was at work in an air conditioned office and then I tried it out on a really sunny day when I went shopping. It kept me dry both time and I love that there was no white residue. Nothing came off on my clothes and not even under my arms were white. 

I am definitely going to be looking for this Secret Clear gel in my local stores.

Review - Schwarzkopf Osis Gelastic (Influenster Spring Fever VoxBox)


I received this Osis+ Gelastic in my Spring Fever VoxBox from Influenster. 

However I am not a fan of anything that is going to make my hair hard but I still gave it a try.  




Now it does what it says, holds your hair in place after styling for all day definition and gives it Control. 

I have very curly hair so I decided to try it with my hair being damp. The top part of my hair kept the curls but halfway down it weighed my hair down causing it to become straight. the curls at the top held formation and didn't budge as you can see in the pictures below.




The white residue left behind after brushing out my hair

The downside is that when I attempted to brush out my hair there was a lot of breakage and it left a white residue so instead I had to wash my hair. This is not something I would recommend that you use everyday especially if you're not going to wash your hair everyday.

Swatch Me - Luscious Lilac


Hello lovelies

I bought this polish a while back and I'm finally getting to try it out. 

This is Kleancolor - Luscious Lilac


Without flash

It's like a dark pinky purple colour with flecks of silver and pink.

With flash

My only problem with it was that it was a bit on the thick side as is the case with some Kleancolor polishes. Nothing a little thinners couldn't fix. This here is 2 coats and as you can see it is very opaque.

Let me know what you think about this color. 

XOXO

Trendy Thursday - Texture


TGIF!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Whooo Hoooo it's Friday. 
I'm sorry this post is late I forgot to put it up last night, I was too tired. But nevertheless here is my Trendy Thursday submission. 



Today's Mani: Texture
My Take: Silver Chains
Polishes Used: Wet n' Wild "Black Creme" and nail art chains






I bought these silver chains a couple weeks ago in one of my recent hauls .

It was pretty simple to use and it didn't irritate the heck out of me as the rhinestones do. Maybe because I found that it looked pretty and it gave the illusion that I had tips :D .


Now head over to Meera at Pajamas n Pearls and see her Trendy Thursday post.
