Outside the Box: Julep Maven August – Boho Glam by Fran

Outside the Box: Julep Maven August – Boho Glam

Outside the Box: Julep Maven August – Boho Glam Ok, I’ve mentioned a couple of times my romance with nail colour.  Julep is a fantastic subscription program which allows the selection of one of several ‘styles’ via profile questions, but also allows you to vary accordingly if certain colours of the month aren’t to your liking. Julep has also started delving into non-polish products for those who want a bit more than colour.  August saw the release of  9 new colours better know as The Garden Party Collection. I’m officially a Boho Glam Maven but I’ve been known to wander and choose from different collections.  This month I stuck with the profile  and along with the beautiful Francis -a gorgeous soft celery green crème, I received Lois – a stunning shimmering dusty rose frost AND the non-polish product of the month Double Step Foot Treatment and Friction Stick.  […]

Introducing a New Restaurant: Scaddabush by Sarah

Introducing a New Restaurant: Scaddabush

New Restaurant: Scaddabush Last weekend I went to Alice Fazooli’s on Highway 7 in Vaughan, Ontario to enjoy some of their new additions to their menu after a long hiatus from their respective menu. I had their Grilled Calamari Puntannesca with Roma tomatoes, olives, roasted red peppers, capers, arugula and charred lemon. Magnificent! Then for an entree I ordered the Short Rib Ravioli – fresh pasta stuffed with braised short ribs, basil, pesto and grated Grana Padano served with a simmering tomato emulsion. It was fantastic! It was a wonderful lunch experience. To try and top my lunch experience, we drove to Mississauga’s Alice Fazooli’s on Rathburn by Square One mall. When we got there, Alice Fazooli’s was not! In place of where it used to be was a new Italian restaurant named Scadda…what? It took me a while to figure […]

Outside The Box: Beauty Box 5 – July Edition By Fran

Outside The Box: Beauty Box 5 – July Edition

I subscribe to an assortment of subscription boxes and Beauty Box 5 is one of them. The price point ($12 plus free shipping/deals for quarterly/annual subscriptions) is reasonable for a monthly sampler but historically, it’s not usually loaded with deluxe samples, more of the pouch/packet variety. This box however, was a nice surprise. First up a Foot Smoother by Every Beauty. It’s a dual sided dermabrasion sponge that removes rough, dry skin from feet, elbows, knees and can be used wet or dry. Looks very cool and I’m looking forward to giving my heels a once over. The value on this item is $8.99. Another full size item in the box is the Be A Bombshell Lip Gloss in All Dolled Up. It has a super pretty sparkle and claims sheer to full coverage in a few coats. Not sure about […]

Outside the Box: eBeauty Summer Bag By Fran

Outside the Box: eBeauty Summer Bag

Outside the Box: eBeauty Summer Bag I loooove the internet, I find the most fantastic things.  In a recent adventure I came across www.ebeauty.ca they have some fantastic deals on brand name beauty goodies as well as ….wait for it….a seasonal glam bag.  Of course I had to have one and it arrived today.  This is a first impression of the contents since obviously I haven’t had a chance to really try anything.  Hopefully a more in depth review of the contents will follow after I’ve had some time to ‘play’ with everything. For $29.99 I received 14 products and a cute toiletry bag, a pretty good price point to be able to sample a lot of different goodies at once. First up are  the Katy Perry “Sweetie  Pie” Lashes ($8) with adhesive. I must admit I don’t use false eyelashes, […]

BB’s Everywhere!   Ok I must admit before trying BB Cream I was that Girl that was like, “BUT!!! I like foundation!” * So I tried My first BB which was the L’Oreal Magic Skin Beautifier BB Cream in “Fair” (30ml runs around $8) This one is one of my two personal favorites It doesn’t look so orange tone in real life my camera isn’t giving it the credit it deserves. I do love this one  A LOT it does nor make my face oily as I do have combination skin. Also This one does have a fair bit of coverage. I myself, Like to use this with a powder over top so after that its perfect! Does not feel over caked on and Does not feel greasy and covers  well . Con: for me is that its lacking sunscreen. […]
