Moon Cats Scarf Review

1:01 AM



"A black soft neck warmer.
This black warm knit snood is trendy and convenient at the same time. With its super soft fabric, it's simply the perfect piece to wear in Autumn and Winter! 
  • Funnel neck.
  • Only one loop design.
  • Also available in taupe."



I am new to the brand Moon Cats, and maybe bias since I love cats but what a cute logo and I love their name! 


The shipping was super quick, packaging was nice and they even included a really nice thank you note. I think that is so kind and show's people that they appreciate the business, I really liked that!



"Fabric: 100% acrylic
Weight: 4.7 OZ
Size:
Length: 15"
Width: 11"
Look after me: Machine wash cold separately"
This material is so soft and warm it is extremely fitting with the -30'C we are having here right now, yuck! It is really light weight yet really warm and possible to wear for more then just the winter season for sure.







Very unflattering picture but I needed to show that you can use this scarf as a hood too! So cool, I have never had a scarf like this before...maybe I have lived under a rock for too long LOL.


PROS:
Beautiful design
Excellent quality
Well priced
VERY soft
Fits perfect
Multiple ways to wear
Warm
Comfortable

CONS:
Now I need more LOL

Real Techniques Silicone Liner Brush Review

1:01 AM





"Real Techniques Silicone Liner Brush
This brush features a high-tech silicon tip/ It is the ultimate took for smooth,precise application of liquid or cream eyeliner. Applying eyeliner is now easier than ever...The brush provides a smooth application of product without pulling or tugging the skin. 
Apply the product to the length of the brush versus the tip. Then angle the brush sideways,parallel to 
your eye line, to apply product."




Seriously, FINALLY a brush that I can use in my hooded eyes! I was super stoked to review this unique silicon liner brush and haven't seen anything like it before. The tip is super precise so the line is nice and clean.

This little guy makes putting cream eye liner on super easy-I still have a tricky time with the wing but thats just because of my lack of skills and skin.
Comparing this to a traditional liner brush for cream liner is almost comical since this brush takes the cake. It is flexible yet sturdy and is super easy to clean, plus not really any drying time needed.



This was the only gel liner I had on hand but you can do small narrow lines or thicker depending on the look you want. I have no cons about this liner brush actually, I think it's great for anyone to add into their kit of brushes. The only "con" I could come up with is that you may need more product compared to the hair liner brushes since you do need to pick up a little bit more product since I feel it doesn't keep the product on the brush it slides off onto your skin which is a good thing really since you don't want all the product just stuck in your brush.

Since I can't make a video here is one from Sam and Nic!



I would recommend this brush for sure, the price is very affordable and available for $8.99 at Farleyco or available at:

London Drugs
NailPolishCanada.com
obsessedlook.com
Select Familiprix
Select Lawtons Drugs
Select Pharmasave
Select Value Drug Mart
Uniprix

NAIL HQ All in One & Ridge Filler Review

1:01 AM




"Nail HQ All In One Multi Solution Nail Treatment
Nail HQ is a new generation of nail treatments. Our treatment bases are infused with cutting edge technologies found in cosmetics, skin and hair care. Our simple to navigate problem/solution products help you choose exactly what is right for you.
A multi solution product with Argan Oil and replenishing mineral complex. These ingredients help provide the moisture balance necessary to have flexible nails and prevent brittleness and breakage. This formula also contains a unique mineral complex designed to help moisture, condition and strengthen. "

"Nail HQ Ridge Filler Oxygenating Formulation for Thin Ridged Nails
Nail HQ is a new generation of nail treatments. Our treatment bases are infused with cutting edge technologies found in cosmetics, skin and hair care. Our simple to navigate problem/solution products help you choose exactly what is right for you.
Specifically formulated for weak, damaged and thin ridged nails. This smoothing Ridge Filler gives a subtle sheen finish that revitalizes the nail. The formulation gives it unique hydrating, moisturizing and conditioning attributes which will help nails become more flexible, help regulate nail growth and improve the wear of nail enamel by providing adhesion properties."
I did these two reviews together just because it kind if made sense to me,you can use them both at the same time if you wanted too. Or even test one on each hand and see which you think is better for your needs :)

My nails have taken a lot of abuse over the years with all the shop jobs i've had,the polishes,the drying drops and everything in between so I was pretty excited to test these products out. 
NAIL HQ All in One has Argon Oil which I absolutely love and thought if it can do wonders for hair and skin it's got to help the nails right?

NAIL HQ's Ridge filler was really interesting too, although I don't have thin nails that don't grow I still think it could help right?



The All in One applies clear, I use it on clean dry nails. Then wait a couple minutes until fully dry to paint over top or just leave it as a little clear coat and let it work its magic on your nails! This Costs $11.99 which may feel a bit steep if you are cheap but if you have brittle dry nails its well worth the cost! It is available at Farleyco.ca

The Rige Filler does have a slight tint of pink to it as you apply so I would put a polish over top but its cool to not as well. It's just like applying a nail polish but with great benefits! The price of this one is $9.99 and also available at Farleyco.ca.


I am always super picky with my brushes and I don't overly enjoy skinny long brushes, I feel they should all be short and a tiny bit thicker but it wasn't anything that I hadn't used before so it was fine.

PROS:

*Hydrating
*Conditioning
*Helps regulate Nail Growth
*Strengthens
*Quick Drying
*Easy Peasy To Use

CONS:

*Typical chemical smell, but that is nothing we haven't seen before
*The brush, it's not awful by any means but not my favorite

I would for sure purchase the All in One as I feel it would suit my nail needs. I do feel both of these products are exactly what they say and would recommend.

Have you guys tried either or yet?

Avon

Latest Empties...

9:20 AM


I'm on a strict NON buying beauty products until I can use up my stock pile...well unless it's something super amazing then ya just gotta right :D But I NEED to save for photography gear, if you are bored take a little look and see if there is anything you like, Xmas is coming up and art is always a great gift: Creative Images
Okay here we go....

Here is a little pile of my latest empties...and my quick opinion.



*Bath & Body Works-Black raspberry vanilla body lotion
Would I repurchase?
OOOOOOOMAAAAAHHHGAWDDD I heart this sent soo much that hell yeah I would repurchase if they still carry it?? It's not moisturizing but daaaymn it smells GOOD!!!

*The Body Shop-Seaweed Mattyifying Day Cream
Would I repurchase?
OH Yah! I enjoy this for my combo skin, love the smell and it a fairly light moisturizer so I quite like it for oily skin.

*Sally Hansen-Brisk Blue
Would I repurchase?
Have like 3 times now haha. It does chip fairly easy but it's cheap and fast drying.. I don't have time to wait so long for my polish to dry..or I just am impatient more like it lol




First things first lets laugh at this shot LOL I am supposed to be a photographer and this is what I come up with bahahahaha, forgive me I haven't slept much lately.

*Bubs Body Happi- body lotion
Would I repurchase?
Hands down this is the best smelling thing in the entire universe. It is a local company around my area, if it is even still going, I remember talking to her and asking her if she would make a perfume and she looked at me like I was nuts. But its super fruity and soon good I wanna eat it.

*GlamGlow- Tingling & Exfoliating Mud Mask
Would I repurchase?
Eff YAH! This is def the best facial mask I have ever used in my life!!! It's just ridiculously expensive but I heart it and will repurchase one day!!! oh and this was a sample so I supposed I will purchase would be more accurate.

*Annabelle EXpandABLE mascara
Would I repurchase?
I would! I enjoyed the dry like formula as well as the brush, it isn't my HG by any means but I def would use it with another mascara :)

*John Frieda- Fine to Full Blow Out Spray
Would I purchase?
NO didn't do anything for me with my fine hair. =(


*Avon's Skin So Soft -Hand polish
Would I repurchase?
I have to giggle about this because I have been hoarding this container and sparingly using it for like 5 years no lie. Its pathetic but its MY FAVOURITE your hands feel AMAZING after and I can't find it anywhere on the Avon site so if anyone can pleeeeeease tell me!  I would repurchase in a heart beat

*Bath and Body Works- Spearmint 2x Moisture & Summer Vanillas
Would I repurchase?
Yes and already have, I kind of only really use these lately, I probably have about ten in my stash at the moment along with the rest of my lipgloss... yeah I do have an addiction!!! 

*St Ives Apricot Scrub
Would I repurchase?
Always do... I know it wrecks your skin and blahh blahh blahh but my face really isn't all that nice anyways so whats the harm ;) lol

Okay guys if I have a reader out there, what is your latest empties and have you tried any of these?Any faves?



Not That Kind Of Girl....

3:27 PM


Not that kind of Girl- Lena Dunham




Okay seriously did this chick take parts of my thoughts-word for word and put them together to write this hilarious book?!? I just started it so I am only in the first few chapters but I find myself relating way too much to her and wonder if others feel that way?


The first line was fucking funny and sounds pretty much like me.

Have you read this book yet? Thoughts?
I cannot wait to get more into it, this chick cracks me right up!





Insert Embarrassed Face Here....

12:10 PM


So I have kind of been a dead beat blogger... I had two jobs for a while with my photography on the side so I barely had time to breath. Then I had some computer issues.... now I think I have a lack of motivation since I think I only have a couple occasional readers...what's the point if it is just for yourself? I mays well just have a private blog then right? LOL

WELLLLLL since the awfulness of winter has arrived so have I!!!!

I hope to see more of you and sorry I have been a dead beat =/

X3 Clean Hand Sanitizer Review

7:44 PM


X3 clean foaming hand sanitizer kills harmful germs, bacteria and viruses without alcohol. Fragrance free, non-toxic, non-irritating and non-drying to the skin. 
Alcohol gel strips away the skin's natural oils and severely drys the skin with repeated use, which actually increases the number of bacteria on the skin. X3's alcohol-free formula will ensure your skin stays moisturized and kills 99.9% of germs."
It's flu season and with a crappy immune system like mine I hand sanitize allll the friggin time which leaves your hands dried right out. This is a very unique, its an alcohol free hand sanitizer I have yet to ever see or use one like this prior. No more dried out hands! Perfect right? I have a hell of a time making my boyfriend use hand sanitizer if we are out before eating or something because it dries his hands right out, but this was completely different :)



The Product is 75ml for only $4.99, its nice to just carry in your bag or leave in your car. This really has no fragrance so that is nice for people bothered by the smells or by just straight up alcohol smell. It dries really quickly as well which is nice.



I absolutely love the pump & foam product it's my fav!
I would 100% recommend this product as well as purchase this. 
You can find it available at Farleyco.ca

I also read this interesting germ facts here that you would probably be grossed out and want to clean your hands more often!

Have you ever tried this? Who would have thought an alcohol free hand sanitizer would be 99.9% effective at killing germs, not me!

Body Butter

I Love…Cosmetics Review

12:45 PM


I Love… is an exciting bath and beauty line that prides itself in providing high quality,affordable and delicious products. Their paraben-free bath and shower creams,skin friendly formulations with natural additives, and comes in variety of yummy fragrances! Their line also includes exfoliating scrubs, lotions and fruity spritzers (I will def be buying some of those!)

Strawberries & Cream Bubble Bath has the delicious scent that bubbles up nicely and takes you away from reality even for just a minute while you can relax and feel pampered. I have actually used a few of their bubble baths previously and it's the only brand I buy now since you literally want to eat everything…why wouldn't you want to have that smell in your bath or shower? Leaves you feeling refreshed and gives you a nice start or finish to your day :)
The formula isn't super thick, I don't use too much product as I do have a jetted tub so that always helps with bubbles so I am not sure without a jetted tub with the formula. I find the price really reasonable as well 500mL for $9.99, as well I find this size usually lasts me months.



I Love… Raspberry & Blackberry Body Butter is hands DOWN my ABSOLUTE FAVORITE fruity scent. I have never used their body butters before so when I saw this my eyes grew wide and I knew it would be great.. I opened it up and WOW this scent is incredible to me, I really do understand why they say this is not food LOL Smells damn delicious. It left my skin soft and it didn't feel as thick as some body butters I have used before which I found really nice because I don't overly like thick thick moisturizers since I wouldn't use it daily, but this I can use daily. Leaves you feeling energized and lifts my mood! I would recommend giving this a try! I also find this a lot more reasonable of a price compared to Body Shops body butters, and I kind of prefer this one-at least before the winter months, 200mL for $9.99.



I Love… Cosmetics are exclusively available at Shoppers Drug Marts across Canada! Made in the UK :)

What are your thoughts on I Love…?

* Select Pharmasave
* Select Uniprix  "


This was a unique product I was sent to test out from Farelyco.ca, I read about it, looked at it, thought hey this is super hard it is going to scrap my tan off! then I put it back in the box until my tan fell off ;) I did
received this for review right when I got back from Mexico and I had a tan (which is rare) so I was like there is no way I am going to use this on my face right now since I didn't understand it wasn't harsh like I pegged it to be. (not very smart I know!Also I have to laugh because it says "softens when wet" right on the box. Maybe I had left my brain in vacay mode or something lol.) So I finally about a month ago was like hey lets get on this and test it out! I use this facial sponge almost daily with any cleanser I have. You have to use very minimal product which is always great because it foams up so nicely I feel like I am saving money on face wash compered to me pumping it into my hands. 




Once you do get this wet it's clearly not hard and crunchy, now I just feel stupid that it took me so long to use…. I heart this little sponge! It gives your face a nice refreshing feeling without the harsh exfoliant (I do enjoy those as well but not daily) The shape is also another thing I really liked about it since it was easy to manoeuvre around the face without it being awkward.
I think I used the crap out of this LOL 


It's seen better days LOL BUT I will purchase another one soon because its a great tool to use daily and have your face feeling super clean, you can tell the difference compared to different cheap facial tools I have purchased in the past. I would recommend this for sure!

Have you gave this a try yet?

Irresistible Me Hair Extensions Review Before And After Pictures

1:30 AM





If you haven't heard of Irresistible Me Hair Extensions then you may possibly live under a rock ;)  
I have seen a number of reviews on YouTube and was extremely stoked to get a chance to review this product.

"Our products are made of natural human Remy Hair and are perfect for changing your look without damaging hair. Match to your own hair color or mix in a different color for beautiful highlights. Each set is composed of 10, 8 or 7 pieces of different widths depending on the weight you choose, purposely adapted to cover your head all around"

You get a good variety with colour,length and thickness so you really can't go wrong. I went with these ones:

 Silky Touch Chocolate Brown #2  200G 20 inch

*100% Indian remy human hair, certified high quality (grade AAA)
*Can be coloured, heat styled and washed of course
*Comes with 1 Piece of 4 clips, 2 pieces of 3 clips  pieces of 2 clips and 2 pieces of the one clip. that is a ton! =D



My extensions were shipped incredibly quickly ( I am in Canada) with no damage and everything in tact. I was really impressed that with Irresistible Me they make it super easy if you are not sure on the colour and have a separate side of the package stating to open this side first and its is to ensure you have the correct colour and length so if you do need to do an exchange or return you are set. I think that is so smart but I would personally just dye them rather then send them away since I was like a kid in a candy store I ripped these suckers open asap but I couldn't play with them for quite a while since I was working two jobs and had no life or time to breath let alone dye these :(

I was kind of unsure on what colour to choose since my hair is a mixture of black with darker purplish colour in the roots but I didn't want black since I am trying to ditch the black (good lucky right?) so I ordered the Chocolate brown so I knew dying these with the current colour would work well and luckily I was right.


Please forgive my lighting, the colour maybe off in the photos but it is a true gorgeous chocolate brown…too bad I had to dye them! : 0

As for dying extensions I really didn't know how since my last set I did have my stylist pick them out and dye them at the salon so I wasn't exactly sure on the steps but speaking with Irresistible Me they were soo helpful and gave me steps to make sure I came out with the best outcome. 
To make it simple make sure you wash your extensions first, then always do a spot test ( like you are told with any dye) on the one clip strand so if something went wrong your not destroying all the extensions. I also didn't need to leave my dye on as long as I did with my hair so just keep an eye on things and I am sure you are able to email them with questions about anything.


 Darkest plum by L'oreal
I used ammonia free dye and a good conditioner after and the extensions were still nice and soft, I let them air dry and they have a nice wave that I WISH my hair had! I just am in love lol.



Dying them…..

These are INCREDIBLY soft and such nice quality, I have owned one pair of clip in extensions before and those seriously have no comparison AT ALL on these. I was honestly extremely impressed that it was high end quality. I did decide on the 20 inch 200gram once since my hair is fine and I will never have that long of hair and LOVE long hair I went all out lol. You get A TON of hair too, I was shocked at the size of the amount of hair you do get for the price.
I also want to mention when you are picking what colour there is a helpful video to show what they offer, I did watch it before I made my decision.




I was also super shocked at how many came in this set, comparing to my previous set I had barely none so of course that made me very pleased.( As well the other set I have was $120!!!! I think I got 6 clips total. complete waste of money) I have washed these,combed them,curled and straightened and I don't have any big complains on shedding.

Ok here are some results!


Here is the amount I did wear for this day, I change it up, i wear more usually when I wear my hair half up since I feel I can hide the clips really easy ( my hair is fine so I always worry you'll see the clips). I will post pictures next time I do that.



BEFORE: 
BLAHHHHHHH
Please excuse me I am SOO camera shy, i'm usually the photographer not the subject so this was so out of my element. I think this was my first post on my blog with my face ekkkk.



AFTER:
=D







It was sooo windy as per usual it was hard to get this shot with the hair not being a total mess and looking unblended so you can see some of my original hair BUT when you style it and aren't in major wind gusts it doesn't look this way.(Maybe I shouldn't have posted this one?) I am going to go to my stylist and have her shape my extensions to blend in with my hair more naturally, it really makes a difference.
Also I will add more pictures of what they look like when I wear my hair in a pony tail with my extensions. Seriously these are a lot of fun! I must admit though I do have fine hair so if I was to wear EVERY piece you may see the extension band part, but when it is curled in loose waves no one ever knows and I get so many compliments when regularly I never would LOL.


PROS: 
Very very good quality, 
Easy to use
Great colour selection
Great customer service
Quick shipping
Little shedding
They look AMAZinnnnnng! 

CONS:
The only thing I could say is the cost possibly since we aren't all rich, BUT I don't think they are unreasonable at all and are worth the price 100% if you plan to wear them, for the quality and amount you get I would for sure recommend these extensions!


Definitely check out IRRESISTIBLE ME Extensions, you won't be disappointed =)
