The beautiful CAUSEBOX arrived to my mailbox today and I’ve had to catch my breath!

The box itself was stunning.

Inside…

Some of the most wonderful and unique products I’ve seen in a subscription box. Beautiful products with beautiful intentions.

First was Nashelle. A jewelry brand that donates a plate of food for each piece sold!

Beautiful ring!

Coconut Sunstick from All Good. I’m excited to try this on next week’s cottage trip!

I’ve long wanted to place a large order of puravida bracelets so this was a truly delightful surprise (and now I feel like I simply must order some of the fun matching ones now)! Perfect summer colours from Costa Rica artists all the way to my doorstep.

Haiti Design Co. focuses on putting people above profit and creating fashion for good. I love the leather tassel keychain included in the Causebox. Beautiful.

And the Mason Bar company – I received a lid, a stainless steel straw and the large wide mouth mason jar to rock the nicest travel mug ever and some Pure Moringa smoothie powder to fill this jar up with a powerful smoothie concoction (a great smoothie recipe was included in the included magazine)!

I’m all ready to give this Kalos Triple Threat detox a try and report back to you. I am hyper critical of face products so I will let you know, but I do love that this is all natural and organic!

And lastly in the box were these Altru paper products; notebook and bookmark, handmade by artisans in Jaipur, India! So pretty!!

So overall review; I am in love with this box, in case that wasn’t obvious. The products are beautiful, the styles and colours suit me perfectly. The organization and the product makers support amazing causes. This price point ($49.95USD) is completely worth it and because I try out a lot of subscription boxes I really love how unique this box was in every way.

Will I continue my subscription? Heck yes!

Gilded Mint Wraps from Jamberry.

This ASOS Curve dress was a long shot since ordering it online without being able to try it on and it’s a style that I’ve never tried. Not to mention this was much more form fitting than my usual look but it was well worth the risk!

Tree puns are so sappy.

I’m so completely in love with bright colours although I tend to reserve them to home decor far too often. I’m always telling myself, this season I will buy all the colours!

We had endless amounts of rain over my vacation so of course now that I’m work ready… the sun is shining once again. I’m loving this outfit, mostly from Eloqui as the perfect day to night type of look. This will be going into the suitcase for work trips this summer.

100% More Floral

When life gets a little too hectic and you have zero time to blog, you go on vacation!

I wish I could regale you with stories of wild pool parties, exotic locations and a killer tan but since I already live in on of Canada’s favourite vacation locales I spent a week off just enjoying my town and completely winding down.

It was perfection.

Day 1 – I already look less stressed, and 100% more floral.

The Pink Lady

Since our teen years haven’t we all wanted to be part of The Pink Ladies and wear the coveted satin jacket?

a7f037565715b9c70274a3d44d41daa2

I’m not going to even dig into my love of Rizzo and pencil skits right now but I did find the perfect satin bomber for myself recently from Charlotte Russe!

fullsizeoutput_628fullsizeoutput_627

I fell in love with this jacket after having seen much more expensive versions all over lately. I wasn’t ready to commit a lot of funds for this possibly fleeting fashion but this one is available in standard and plus sizes from Charlotte Russe and currently on sale for under $25!!

The Boohoo Coated denim pants from ASOS Curve were another great deal for $30 but there are only a few pairs left now and they are going for $15! Rush to ASOS for this steal but I would suggest sizing up as they were tighter than I expected.

I’m loving the sunny Spring weather and recently got the pink redone in my hair which always makes me feel wonderful.

Gorgeous watercolour floral.

Easter Bunny

Happy Easter!

fullsizeoutput_5ea

I hope your weekend has been filled with impossibly high sugar intakes and sweet love!

Easter celebrations are low key now that my only child has hit the late teens and while he did enjoy chocolate and I got hugs and kisses, there was sadly no Easter Egg Hunt for me him this year.

fullsizeoutput_5e4fullsizeoutput_5e8

Regardless of egg hunts or sugar highs I still can’t resist a outfit with a theme. This adorable bunny top is curtesy of H&M’s plus line. I’ve scored some really great picks from them although the line is very limited. Take note: they offer a lot more online and only select stores carry the plus items.

Skirt from Addition Elle and tights, as always, from We Love Colors.

Subscription Addiction – April Boxy Charm

IMG_5863

It’s Boxy Charm time again! This month’s box is the Boho Glow theme and honestly, I’m loving Boxy Charm more and more.

I’m not sure why they didn’t make this an Easter theme! Look how cute those egg blending sponges are!!!!

IMG_5866

Totally Easter Eggs.

IMG_5867

Beyond excited to try this shampoo – sulfate and paraben free shampoos are my favourite especially with coloured hair…plus, strawberry banana? Yes please!

IMG_5868

Boxy Charm features a lot of OFRA products in their boxes so it was a bit of a disappointment to receive yet another after also receiving SO MANY highlight powders from them already. I mean… how much contouring are we doing ladies?!?!? But, this gold powder will likely give me a nice extra sheen once I have some summer tan so I’ll save it til then.

I was pretty excited when I saw the adorable packaging for this Allegory Story lip gloss but completely disappointed by the colour. I’ve yet to have a lipstick or gloss from Boxy that I can actually use. I will say this is more because of me though! Having super pale winter skin and pale pink hair doesn’t leave me with a lot of lipshades that work well. (Look how totally cute my nails are though!)

And finally the Concealer Collection! Honestly, I think this is the type of collection that really only a makeup artist would need as we don’t have the need for all of these shades individually but I do like that this means that pretty much everyone can get some use out of this product! I should circle back in a few months to this and do a follow up for what I’ve actually used.

If you are interested in signing up for your own Boxy Charm subscription you can do so here for only $21USD a month!
