- - ModCloth | Stylish Surprise Shoes Review x 2 | April 2016 - -


Hello! 😊

This post has been in my draft folder forever, so today I'm going to stop dragging things on and just publish it. I'll keep things short and sweet!

A couple of months ago ModCloth - my one and only online destination for indie fashion, accessories, home decor, and miscellaneous goodies - released another one of their famous "Stylish Surprises." A Stylish Surprise is a chance to pick up a mystery item for $5 - $20 (US). There are a number of categories you can choose an item from (typically: accessories, dresses, shoes, and apparel). As the item is a surprise you don't know what you're getting until the package is at your doorstep - this is both exciting and scary!

I've had my fair share of stylish surprises (check out my most recent reviews: March 2014 & April 2015). Now I know only to take chances on the "Shoe" category, and that's exactly what I did this time around. Since the Stylish Surprise came at a time around my birthday and you know, I love surprises, I decided to place two orders - both of which I'm going to show you right now. 😊

- - Colour Pop | (4) Ultra Matte Lips & (1) Ultra Satin Lips Review - -


A few months ago one of my co-workers came to work really excited! You see, the evening before she was at a restaurant, and there was a woman there who was wearing a red lipstick which didn't budge AT ALL throughout her meal. It turned out that the woman had on one of Colour Pop's Ultra Matte Lips (super pigmented, long-lasting lip gloss).

I had never heard of Colour Pop before and I was intrigued by a lip product that could truly last through a meal, so I decided to order a few lip glosses. The prices are very good ($6.00 USD), but there are sooo many shades that it's a bit overwhelming!

After going back and forth, the shades I ended up getting were: 4 Ultra Matte Lips (Lumière 2, Avenue, Dr. M, and Bumble) and 1 Ultra Satin Lip (London Fog). In this post I'm going to briefly show you each of them:

- - Pearl Bath Bombs | Strawberries & Champagne Bath Bomb Review - -


Have you ever tried one of those things where you find a ring in the middle of a candle? No? Me neither.

That's why when a couple of weeks ago my good friend, Roxana, sent me a link on Facebook to Pearl Bath Bombs, I was interested right away. You see, Pearl Bath Bombs is the bath bomb equivalent of companies such as Charmed Aroma. Yet unlike CA, the idea with PBB is that you order a bath bomb, bathe, and when your bath bomb fizzles out you find a mystery ring inside! Pretty cool, no?

- - Monthly Empties | April 2016 - -

Wow!

I didn't realize how many products I got to try last month until I was laying them out for photographs. There is soo much to get through in this post, but I've made it easier by keeping my descriptions mostly brief (if there are any) and breaking everything up into categories.


Okay, here goes!

- - Fruits & Passion | Passion Box Subscription - DARE | April 2016 Review - -


Just when I thought I was done with subscription boxes another one pops up that I just had to try!

Fruits & Passion has recently come out with two subscription boxes: Dare Your Passion and Live your Passion. Dare is meant to bring "new and innovative" products to your doorstep, while Live brings you tried and true customers favourites. Both boxes promise to have a $70+ value and shipping options are available for U.S. and Canada.

For both boxes you can choose to either: (1) try a one-time box for $45 (CAD), or (2) subscribe for $39/month with the ability to change or skip boxes as well as cancel at any time. I'm pretty familiar with F&P - especially with their Cucina line - so it made more sense to try out Dare. I figured I was interested enough to try it for a few months, so the $39/month option it was!

I'm excited to share all of the products with you, so let's jump right into it after the break...
