FabFitFun Summer Box 2017 + Add-ons

Sunday, 2 July 2017

Another season, another fabfitfun box. I love these boxes, I really do. If you never heard of fabfitfun firstly where have you been, fabfitfun is a beauty, fitness, fashion and wellness subscription box that comes on a quarterly basis. It is quite expensive subscription box especially someone coming from Canada but from getting 5 boxes already I can say its TOTALLY worth the money. Each box is loaded full of full size products. Now lets get to the inside the box bit.

Inside the Box:





Michael Stars Ruana - This ruana is perfect for the beach or just an everyday piece. There are so many different ways you can style it. A scarf, drape it over your shoulders or wrap it around your waist. Those are just some of the ways you can style this amazing piece. 



Brk Little - 500ml - Ever since I received this bottle I have been using it loads. I have even been drinking so much more water from using it. Its a glass bottle with a silicone sleeve. Great size for on-the-go as well.


Cargo Cosmetics Cargo_HD Picture Perfect Highlighter in Bronze -This highlighter is so pretty and gives you a great shimmer and highlight. I didn't own a highlighter so I am glad I received one in the box.



Juice Beauty Smoothing Eye Concentrate - Moisturizing, and great for reducing fine lines and dark circles. Have been using this everyday, very great product.

Eau Thermale Avène Ultra-light Hydrating Sunscreen Lotion SPF 50+ - Super lightweight sunscreen with a high SPF. It also has a matte finish to it as well. My face burns really easy in the summer so putting sunscreen on my face is a must. 





Kris Nations Mystic Bar Necklace - I love this necklace its very pretty. It is a silver overlay tho and not Serling sliver as I thought it would be. Not going to get into this too much but on the Kris Nations website it showed this necklace was Serling sliver for the same price listed (pretty sure they changed it to silver overlay now) as the silver overlay necklace in the box. Personally don't think a silver overlay necklace is worth $58. 







Choice 1 - Traveler

UnderStated Leather On the Road Again Travel Set - For one of my choice items I choose traveler and I am very happy I did. I can't wait to use these gorgeous rose gold passport holder and luggage tag next time I travel.



Choice 2 - Beauty

Klorane Dry shampoo with oat milk - For my second choice item I choose beauty. Perfect for the days your hair just needs a little freshening up while also adding texture and volume.




Vital Proteins Marine Collagen 
A sponsored item that was included in the box.



I also bought these add-ons as well on the fabfitfun site. Two Whish body oils, Coconut (right) and Blue Agave (left). I have used the Blue Agave one and its great but the smell is not my favourite. Also bought the Living Proof no frizz shampoo and conditioner and noticed a difference in my hair. Add-ons are discounted products up to 70% off which are avaliable for limited time. 

I am very pleased with the products I received in this summer box.

FabFitFun Summer Box 2016

Thursday, 28 July 2016








Very excited to share with you this FabFitFun box I received in the mail last month. FabFitFun is style, beauty, fitness and wellness subscription box sent on a quarterly basis. Every season there are a mix of handpicked items by the FabFitFun team. This is my very first ever box from them and I have to say I am very pleased with all the products inside and used pretty much everything so far, haha. Before I show you what I received in the box can we first talk about how cute the box it comes in. It’s so pretty and pink with lots of cute summer doodles. Love It!


Here is what was inside my box:

Stemulation Daily Micro Derm Scrub – I have been using this scrub loads in the shower. I use it right before I shave my legs and leaves my skin super smooth after.

FabFitFun Everyday Beach Waves Spray – I love using this beach waves spray as it gives an extra texture to my already wavy hair. Makes styling hair so much quicker in the morning, plus conditions and protects my hair with meadowfoam seed oil.

Osea Atmosphere Protection Cream – Every morning and night I have been putting on this lightweight moisturizer all over my face and leaves my skin feeling very smooth and soft.

Passport to Beauty Gypset Luminous Lips – I love the colour of this lip gloss. This gloss goes on smooth and is full of vitamin E, which is very hydrating and rich in antioxidants.


Trina Turk Canvas Tote – ThisSeas the Day’ tote bag is so awesome and the bag is super great quality. Perfect for the beach or by the pool. Can’t wait to use it next time I have a beach day.

Betchsicles Ice Pop Molds – These are the best. Defiantly have been a favourite of mine on the warm summery days. I have been making orange juice and lemonade popsicles, super delicious. Blended fruit would always be super great in these, which I can’t wait to try.

Summer & Rose Yoga Towel – This yoga towel is not only good for yoga but also great for workouts or taking it to the beach. Its super soft and helps absorbs moisture, which is great to have.

Burt’s Bees BB Cream – In the box it also come with a couple samples of Burt's Bees BB cream.

Summer is my favourite season of the year so when I received this box it made me even more excited for summer. I would defiantly love to get another FabFitFun box in the future.





Favourite Nail Polishes for Summer

Tuesday, 11 August 2015

There are always those certain colours that you reach for when going to paint your nails. Throughout the year I like to change up what nail polish I have on my nails. Spring and summer is defiantly all about the pastel and bright colours. In this post I well be showing you some of my favourite nail polishes that if you don't own any of these yourself I highly recommend you do because the colours are absolutely beautiful.


Mint Candy Apple is one of my go to favourite nail polishes of all time. Its so pretty and pastel which is perfect for the spring and summer.


The shade on the right is "bikini so teeny". I'm in love with this colour so much. Really beautiful and lasts for a while on your nails without chipping. The polish on the left is the "mint candy apple".


Muchi, muchi is a really pretty pastel pick colour and very classy. Its just so gorgeous, there is not much more to say about it.


 I could not simple write a nail polish favourites without adding some sparkle polishes in with the mix as well. The polish "a cut above" (left) and "set in stones" (right) are so pretty to add on top of polish or on it's own. I do also love to add it to the tips of nails to give a little hint of sparkle.






The Body Shop Haul

Monday, 15 June 2015


Recently I went to the Body Shop and picked ups few things. The Body Shop is one of my favourite stores for all things beauty and skin care. Their products are realIy great quality and if you haven't been yet I would highly recommend you go. I was running low on some of their products so I decided to replenish my shelf and try some new ones.


The tea tree line is one of my favourite sections in the store. This cool and creamy face wash had been recommend to me by one of the workers at the store. I have tried this out and have to say its absolutely amazing. When you take this off,  your face feels so nice afterwords and its really quite refreshing and leaves your face with a cooling sensation.



Tea tree BB cream works great and good for any spots that you may want to cover up. This BB Cream comes in three different shades, Light 01, Medium 02 and Dark 03. I Went for the 01 shade as it works good with my skin tone.

I had a travel size of this product before but just had to get the larger size. Vitamin E moisture cream is the best for anyone with dry skin but its also great for all skin types. You can put it on before your makeup or if you need a bit of moisture though out the day. This cream also will make you have healthy looking appearance.


Next I purchased a couple of lip glosses. You can never have enough. Plus these shades would be perfect to add to any collection.





Lastly I just had to get more of this lip and chick stain. Its perfect for everyday and lasts on your lips. I mostly ever use it on my lips but you can also dab a bit on your cheek and rub it in.

I hope you enjoyed this body shop haul. Leave what are your favourite products or recommendations from the body shop in the comments below. I hope you have a great rest of your day/evening.



Lemon Crepes

Tuesday, 17 February 2015



It's Pancake day today and with that in mind I can't not post a recipe to have on this day. Last year was the first year I ever heard of pancake day. I know what you're thinking why have I not heard about this amazing, most perfect day in the past beats me. 'Never will I miss this day again' that's what I tell myself now. Lol. Even though almost ever Saturday I have some sort of pancake concoction. As you can tell I LOVE pancakes. I'm in love with the pancake. I got it for the low, low.  Ok I'll stop now!

Measure, mix, pour, flip thats all it takes to make delicious crepes. Crepes are thin pancakes originated in northwest France. They can be served with endless combinations of toppings, Nutella with strawberries, lemon with sugar and many more. Beautiful on outside and delightful to eat. 

Ingredients


 Pancake mixture:


1 cup plain flour, sifted
Pinch of salt
2 eggs
13 tbsp + 1/2 tbsp milk mixed with 1/3 cup water
1/4 cup butter

Toppings:


Sugar
Lemon juice
Lemon wedges
Icing sugar (optional)

Directions:

1. In a large bowl sift the flour and salt. Next make a well in the centre of the flour and break the eggs into it. Then start whisking the eggs with the flour, incorporating any flour from around the side of the bowl.

2. Once the flour and egg is mixed together gradually add small quantities of the milk and water mixture while whisking. Lumps will slowly disappear as you mix.

3.  the batter is smooth melt 1/4 butter in a pan. Add 2 tbsp of the butter in the batter and the rest in a small bowl to use it for the pan.

4. Before making each pancake add a bit of butter in the pan. Turn the pan to the highest heat, then turn down to medium heat and add small amount of batter to thinly coat the pan. Tilt the pan in a circular motion to cover the surface evenly.

5. Cook the crepe for about half a minute or until it's golden brown. Then flip the crepe over with a flipper to cook the other side.

6. To serve, squeeze lemon juice and sprinkle sugar on top. Fold in half, then in half again to create triangles. You can also add some icing sugar on top and some lemon slices on the side.

Are you planning on having pancakes today? Let me know in the comments below.

Its Christmas today. Christmas has to be my favourite time of the year because of all the Christmas lights on the houses making the outside look oh so lovely, christmas music, decorating and of coarse baking.
