After receiving 5 subscriptions box each month of the Sephora Play box, I’ve decided to cancel my subscription. This subscription box is $10 per month and includes 4-5 deluxe samples of the best products out there. If you’re new to my blog you’ll quickly find out that I am a beauty lover and a fan of subscription box. For a reasonable price, I like to try boxes that are current, trendy, and give me products that I’ve never tried before. Here are my pros and cons on the Sephora Play box:
Final thoughts: I think this subscription box is well priced for it’s value. It no longer fitted my lifestyle and needs. I noticed that I had already owned or have owned the full sized product, thus making the box not a surprise or exciting. I found the sample sizes to be perfect for travel. If you are an avid beauty shopper and like to try a lot of different products from different brands already, this subscription box may not be for you. If you are looking to broaden your beauty knowledge and want an easy affordable way to try new products then this might fit just right for you. I enjoyed my subscription while it lasted, but it’s time to move on. Off to find the next great box!

Keeping my skin nourished and hydrated are important in keeping my skin looking fresh especially during the winter months. I believe having a routine, and using products that work for your skin are key. I am exited to try the Erno Laszlo Hydra-therapy collection thanks to Preen.me. The leader in celebrity skincare since 1927, this line has nourished the faces of Audrey Hepburn, Marilyn Monroe, Jacqueline Kennedy and Kim Kardashian. Theses product have been loved and cherished by so many celebrity faces that I knew there had to be something special about their products.
The cleansing Power of 2 ritual includes a cleansing oil and soap bar. This double action cleanse is meant to break down the impurities, attacking them double strong. I’ve enjoyed this process. The oil breaks down all the residue I had on my face from the day, then the lathering of the soap makes me feel extra cleansed. You feel like you’ve attacked all that you can with good for you ingredients such as Antioxidant-rich rose extract, sunflower oil, and macadamia oil. My face is now prepped, cleansed and ready to soak up any toner, serum or moisturizer.
Perhaps the most famous and popular product from this line is the Hydra Therapy sleep mask. This overnight mask was quite different for me as it was a gel like consistency. The scent is quite nice, making it pleasant as an overnight mask. Once I finished my cleansing routine, I would apply this mask onto my face and leave it on overnight. In the morning I would wash my face feeling the magic of the mask creating a hydrating fresh sensation.
I will admitting recognize that the price point for these products are quite high, and are quite the investment. I also was not a fan of the packaging. I don’t like product where I have to pour out or dig into. I much prefer a pump and pre measure amounts of products ready to be used. If you can look past these things, and are looking for a ritual that will set your skin up for the upcoming winter months then this is a must! I would highly recommend these products as I’ve loved the process so far and plan on continuing to use them!

Feeling like I needed to change up my nail game a bit, I was on the search for some nail art ideas to add to my collection. This time though, I was looking for something more than just drawing a single heart on a nail, but instead wanted to find more intricate details, creating a cool nail look.
I recently snatched up these nail decals by Sally Hansen at TJmaxx and thought it was perfect for what I wanted to create. Using this along with my Red Carpet Manicure gel set (read my previous post here: Red Carpet Manicure), I was sure to get a fabulous look, ones perfect for the fall weather ahead of us.
These strips were easy to apply. I would cut them in strips, adjusting to the size needed for each nail. After my final color application on my nails I would then place the sticker on where I wanted it, then finished them off with the brilliance topcoat.
I’m happy at how my nails turned out. These decals were such an easy way to give my nails that professional salon look, except without the price or time it would take sitting there. If you feel like sprucing up your nail game, try out some stickers or decals, something that will instantly take a plain colored nail, into something awesome.

After those summer days of fun in the sun, our hair needs some TLC to revive it back to life! I received the GHD (Good Hair Day) hair dryer, and GHD hair straightner for reviewing purposes and I have all the detail here.
Hair Dryer. This cute compact dair dryer quickly dried my hair. The tool itself is quite sturdy and heavy. The drying time is so short that I can be out the door in half the time. My hair quickly gets volume with some added bounce to it.
Flat iron: Flat irons are always something I keep. When I’m in a rush and still need to look put together, straightening my hair gives me exactly what I need. Added shine, and vibrant color were the results of my first time using it.
Hair products. As an added bonus I was also given some curl hold spray, smooth and finish serum and advanced aplit end therapy. These products smell so good and are a nice way to finish off my hair look.
These tools from GHD can go from a straight sleek and shine look, to a bouncy curly look and everything in between. Curling my hair with this straightener was a breeze. The design of the tool made it so it’s easy to manipulate and handle the iron, without your fingers getting burnt!
