July Glossy Box Canada

Good Afternoon!

Much to my surprise, today I received my July Glossy Box!  Just squeezed in for July lol.  I was pretty impressed with Canada Post (we really can't say that too often) because living in Vancouver, my delivery date was August 5th, over a week early!

So I decided to get on posting right away because many girls haven't received them and I know many like to see spoilers.

Riley was just ecstatic when I got my box.

Lancome Luxe Box by Loose Button (LOOK WHAT I WON!)

Why Hello Everyone,

About a month or two ago Loose Button teamed up with Lancome and Michelle Phan.  Loose Button had these special edition luxe boxes sent out to a select few beauty bloggers.  And in turn the beauty bloggers held a giveaway for a box.

Turns out I won one!

The Shopping Channel Beauty Tote Bag of Goodies

Hello My Lovelies!

Today I wanted to tell you a little bit about my recent purchase from the shopping channel.  I saw a post by Alexandra at Plumpish Beauty who bought the shopping channel's Beauty tote bag.  Seeing as I have no self control, I bought it.

July Julep Maven Box

Hello My Lovelies 

I received my July Maven box in the mail yesterday and was blown away by the beauty of its contents.

I must admit however, that I meant to skip this month but I was a day late in trying to do so.  I sent an email to Julep asking if they could do it for me and they said no.

Rather than raising a stink, I just switched my box to "classic with a twist" instead of "American beauty" because I wasn't very fond of the colors in my beauty profile

Win Shellac for life!!!

Hello to my lovely readers

I recently read Jayne at cosmetic proof 's blog and found out about this fantastic giveaway!  I just had to enter.  Who wouldn't love to be able to do shellac nails on yourself???

And they last for up too 2 weeks.

Here is what we are looking at:

Now I thought seriously about not sharing this with you guys because I figured, the less people who entered, the more of a chance I would win.  (haha)

But I couldn't do that to my lovely readers.

Rachel, over at nail polish Canada sent over a press release outlining the details of the giveaway:

“To be fair, it’s actually only a 25 year supply, so we can only hope the winner dies early to keep me an honest woman” - Nikki Smith, VP of Glitter, Nail Polish Canada.

CND Shellac is a cross between nail polish and gel which is cured under a UV lamp and lasts up to 14 days without chipping.

Chipped nails are an important issue that affect lives in many ways. “We’ve invented substantial research and the reason women slap or bite in a catfight is fear of chipping their nails. Hopefully, together, we can build a world where a woman can throw a punch at the bitch who kissed her boyfriend without worrying about chips” said Ms. Smith

The prize will go to whomever can show that their life will be most impacted by winning Shellac for life.
Be it better, or worse.

Maybe it stops your polish addiction long enough that you can save money, go to school, become a doctor, go to Africa and start saving lives. Did we say that this contest saves lives? Now we did.
Or maybe you’re just looking for a little understanding, “My husband will finally understand that other people take polish as seriously as me...” - Sarah P.”
Or perhaps the result won’t be as positive, “I’ll probably spend all my time painting my nails, not go to work, get fired, now I’m homeless, damn you NPC.” - Beth C”
If you or a loved one is still stuck in a world of chips, smudges and wasting countless hours re-doing nails we urge you to take a stand.

Grand prize will go to the best description of how winning a lifetime supply of Shellac will change their life. 
Winner selected August 7, 2012.

Prize Details & Entry
Grand Prize (Value $1266): 33 Bottles of CND Shellac + 36 Watt UV Lamp + 5 Topcoat + 5 Basecoat + Scrub Fresh.
How much Shellac do I need to last 25 years?
1300 (weeks in 25 years) / 2 (weeks application lasts) / 20 (applications per bottle) = 33 bottles of Shellac color
Open to Canadian and United States residents only.

So, overall I think the idea for the contest is rather ingenious, and they show some of the other peoples entries.  Now, if you think this is for you, don't be afraid to head on over and tell Nail Polish Canada how a lifetime of shellac could change your life.

Again, the LINK to enter.

Good luck!

Glossy Box June Edition

Hello to all the lovely readers out there.

So I am aware this post is a little late to the party but  just haven't been on my A game for the past week so I'm going to try and get caught up on posts.

I will try and keep this one short and sweet with lots of pictures because most people know what is in the boxes this month!

The Holy Grail of Skin Care - Mario Badescu

Well, at least in my humble opinion.

I was introduced to Mario Badescu by my mother.  She filled out an online questionnaire and was sent free samples of a personalized skincare regime.  I thought this was a great idea so I jumped at the opportunity and completed my own questionnaire.
