Opening of the box:

Index Cars Of Items Included, Short Description and Retail Value:

2015/02/img_7983.png

2015/02/img_7984.png

Fruit Vines: Soft Chewy fruit candy available in Strawberry and Cherry flavors. Reminds me of twizzlers. These are perfect bite sized, low fat snack.

2015/02/img_7985.png

Eco Tools Hair Brush: Has a unique bamboo handle and super soft but firm bristles. The real magic behind the “no pain” yet super effective brush is the soft plastic arched support to the bristles that absorbs extra pressure and delivers a great brushing experience without all the scalp scratching. Absolutely love this!!!

2015/02/img_7991.png</

2015/02/img_7992.png

Rimmel Scandal Eyes Waterproof eyeliner in Black : Deep black, soft eyeliner pencil. Applies really smooth, no tugging and lasted me all day without smudging. Absolutely great for using and traveling with.

2015/02/img_7988.png

Mc Cormick Gourmet Thyme : I have used Mc Cormick brand spices before and one thing I strongly agree with is the absolute quality they deliver. I used thyme for seasoning chicken, turkey and salads.

2015/02/img_7989.png

Rimmel Gentle Eye Makeup Remover: It really feels like water. Fragrance free and yet affective. I love how it can be used on eyes with contact lenses, something I struggle with all the time. The remover can be used over the face too, it leaves my skin feeling pampered and fresh.

2015/02/img_7987.png

Celestial Seasoned Tea In Candy Cane Lane, Decaffeinated Green Tea: I am a tea lover. Give me Decaffeinated green tea and I love you more. Now throw in some Christmas spirit and candy flavor .. I will follow you home .. I had this as a cup of hot black tea Before bedtime and I couldn’t keep smiling. I enjoyed the taste, flavor, aroma and the Snow !! The box came with a coupon, either way I will be buying more
of this… Highly recommended

2015/02/img_7986.png

Boots No7 Protect & Perfect Advanced Serum: This serum works wonder for aging skin. Fights early signs of fine lines and wrinkles. Since it came in a trial pack, I would not base my opinion on it…But it does have a $2 Off coupon I plan on using, will keep you posted !

2015/02/img_7990.png

Finally,
NYC Expert Last Lip Color: Sadly I have misplaced it.. Will be purchasing a replacement soon to
Fill in the review.

OVERALL: I am glad to have received the goodies. The most loved will have to be the Eye makeup remover and the eyeliner from Rimmel.

Misconceptions about Veganism Part 2

I am not an animal rights activist, but this is painful

Leila Lina

This is a continuation of my “Misconceptions about Veganism” series in which I address some of the most popular questions and skeptical remarks about veganism. If you missed Part 1, you can read it here.

Let’s continue!

What’s wrong with Eggs and Dairy? Obtaining these products doesn’t harm the animal.

These industries cause just as much pain and suffering as the meat industry, if not more. Cows are forcibly impregnated each year for their entire lives. Mother cows form an immediate and strong bond with their calves. But their babies are repeatedly stolen away from them so that humans can drink their milk. If the calf is female, she is destined to become a dairy cow like her mother. If he is male, he is locked in a small crate, fed a cheap formula made of slaughter byproducts, and is slaughtered for veal after a few miserable, lonely months…

A reader from talker blogger requested this recipe for her son.  I haven’t made this in a while, so I thought it’s a good idea for dinner tonight.  My family loves this Mac and Cheese recipe with crispy turkey bacon (protein) and some broccoli for iron and fiber.  I had a small serving and it was so good (as usual)!   I loved it! ❤

DIY: Matte top coat

Definitely worth a try !!!! I didn’t know it was that simple to make your own Matte top coat …My friend from RantsAndBeauty created this magic concoction 🙂 .. Give it a go and let us know .. Check out her blog .. It’s got something for everyone who loves makeup ..

Rants&Beauty

I’ve been expanding my nail polish collection for a while now (I just bought a massive amount of Catrice polishes from mylittlepaperplane), but one thing that was seriously lacking, is a good matte top coat, or any matte polishes at all. I’ve been drooling over pictures of matte (mostly denim) polishes, and they just make a look so much classier!

Now, being the budget lover (and DIY lover) I am, I found this video on YouTube how to make your own matte top coat! I tried it, and it worked quite well! So, of course, I’ll share this with you too 🙂
DIY_matte_02
What you need:

  • Clear nail polish
  • Corn starch
  • (paper) funnel
  • Spoon

DIY_matte_04DIY_matte_03

And that’s really all! I didn’t even use a funnel because.. Well I forgot it xD I made a bit of a mess but nothing really bad.

How it works:

  1. Make sure your bottle is not completely…

How to Remove Nail Polish Stain From Wooden Floor

I love my children. They are my heart beat .. But when the heart beat almost gives you a heart attack .. What do you do ?

My son dropped a box of my nail polishes on the bedroom wooden floor and sadly one of my most loved Essie “The Girls Are Out” bottle broke. There were tiny bits of shattered glass, bright pink polish and my peace of mind scattered all around.

Thankfully my son was safe and even though I was glad , There was a psychological meltdown in knowing that this was a hefty job.

Several google and YouTube searches later :

(Should have taken a picture while all my stuff was drenched in the pink , and this is new stuff I didn’t even open or use)

– pick up all the paint/ polish you can without dragging.

– clean all the paint with a damp cloth and carefully remove all pieces of broken glass.

Now this is what didn’t come off right away…this is directly visible but there was a whole lot underneath the bed too which I couldn’t capture . All pictures taken at night in the light of A lamp …

20140419-083828.jpg

Now, use a hair spray.. I use the one from Pantene.. And spray all over the paint.. Keep the paint well soaked in the hair spray and let it stay for a minute or two…
This will need to be repeated multiple times to loosen the polish ..Don’t try to scrap off the dry polish unless it’s covered with hair spray , that stops the wood damage:

20140419-084327.jpg

Using a scrapping tool, (I took a metal cuticle pusher to restrain the scrapping to where it was necessary,) keep scrapping out the polish and using a nail polish buffer even out the surface .. Be sure to keep surface well moist with the spray..

20140419-090840.jpg

20140419-090849.jpg

Clean off with Pledge or any other wooden surface approved finishing spray :

20140419-091016.jpg

Take a damp cleaning sponge and scrub clean :

20140419-091145.jpg

All done !!

20140419-091243.jpg

OVERALL: It happened with me, it can happen with anyone .. Anytime. Removing and cleaning up, seemed a horror but it was a doable project. Keep surface well spayed with the hair Spray at all times and remove the stain as fresh as it spills , drying makes the paint soak into the wood and harder to remove. It took me over 2 (no kidding) hours but it was worth it !
Let me know if it helps you all 🙂

Lipstick Tag

Lovely Annie from Annie’s Beauty Blog
Tagged me for a real fun post !!
It’s all about lips – and yup lips don’t lie .. Hips too don’t lie, what you eat , hips tell 😦
Rightly said : A moment on the lips and a lifetime on the hips .. Well, anyways … Please don’t mind my crazy talk.. Let’s get started !

1. How many lipsticks do you own?
– Not a while lot, I suppose lipsticks+ lipgloss should be 30-40.. I don’t keep a count although I recently gave away about 10 of my least favorite colors.

2. What was the first lipstick you owned?
– The one I owned was a Revlon Lipstick that I “begged, borrowed and finally took over” from my mom. I don’t remember the name , although I remember it being a dark pink color that I found a bit “too pink” for me, so I always wore it dabbed on and smudged with my fingertips and finished off with Vaseline.

3. What is your favourite lipstick brand?
– I have been very conservative as far as lipsticks go, I don’t change it too often… So I will say Estée Lauder and Revlon.

4. What is your most worn lipstick?
– Has to be Estée Lauder Rich Red , swatched here. I think this is my third already.

5. What is your favourite finish?
– has to be matte. My choice of finish for nails is creamy and glossy but lips I love the matte effect. These are vey pigmented and show the lips more defined.

6. What was the last lipstick you bought?
– Revlon just bitten kissable balm stain in rendezvous. Swatched here

7. How many lip products do you currently have in your bag?
– Let’s see….a lip crayon in orange, orange tube squeeze lip gloss, Maybelline baby lips in Cherry, an Estée Lauder Lip Gloss in nude shimmer, a lipstick from Lancôme.

8. What is your favourite red lip colour?
– Estée Lauder Rich Red (again I am super conservative and I need to explore a little more lip products)

9. How do you store your lipsticks?
-Ikea drawer organizer and my disorganization 😦

10. Which lipsticks are you currently lusting after?
– The Revlon Lip Butters and the YSL Vernis À Lèvres Glossy Stain, they look so rich and pigmented !!

So .. There goes my lip products .. I don’t know if this helps anyone but I read it a while back on how to create a perfect and long lasting red lip look .. You apply a lip liner and use it as a filler as well. Once done, blot the extra from the lips with a tissue. Now using a lipstick brush, apply red lipstick on the lips. Blot again. Finish with a gloss. No matter of long lasting product I use , this method has never failed me. This is how I do the “lip” makeup for any formal occasion .. Let me know your “secret” for longer lasting lip do ..!!

And I tag … YOU!!!
I want each and everyone reading this to be a part of the tag because I am pretty clueless when it comes to lip products and I would love to know what works for you!
