I Love Juicy //A Lush Shampoo Review

Hey everyone!

I bought something. Maybe it’s a gimmick, maybe it will work, maybe I’m crazy who knows! I bought a shampoo specialized for oily hair at Lush last Monday! I gave it a week and thought I would share it with you guys!

Like always I have an in-depth review on YouTube if you want to see my face talk for like way too long. I would love to see all of you lovely friends over there. So please check it out.

Now on to the review. I kinda decided like 30 seconded before using the product that I would actually review it, #Content. I had high hopes for this product because well, any other shampoo I have ever used had been shit. I don’t mean it in a bad way. I just have oily hair and 99% of shampoo is catered towards people with dry hair. So all those hydrating shampoos are not for me. My hair gets oily that same day when I use those shampoos.

So if it says it’s for people with oily hair, I thought to myself, well how badly can they screw this up? Spoiler: there is no screw-up, it works amazingly!

My first impression was it’s expensive! I don’t know who has 37$ Canadian to spend on shampoo but this girl can’t! I prefer you know the 3$ range. If I can get it cheaper than that then I am a very happy girl. I just find it super hard to justify spending that much money on a small bottle of shampoo. It would only make sense if it would last me over a year and I doubt that will happen. I give it an optimistic few months.

Now, the first thing that struck me while actually using the product was that you don’t need a lot. One squirt and you’ve got enough to cover your head. This is taken into account that I have thin hair. It foams up like a normal shampoo and smells very strong. I bought I Love Juicy which is more of a tropical scent. If that’s not your thing then you will hate this.

Other than that, after a few days of using the shampoo, I noticed a huge change in my hair. Instead of being oily the next day my hair is healthy and shiny. That was very interesting to see. I am very impressed with what this shampoo has been able to do in the short time that I have been using it.

So all in all, I think I kind of love this shampoo haha! The only problem is that it is so expensive. It makes it hard for me to justify buying this product again for the price. But if you are interested in this products you can get it HERE.

Would you guys buy a specialized hair care product for that price? Am I being too picky or is the price insane? Would you or have you ever tried this product? I would love to know what you guys think!

First Review of Zoella Beauty Christmas Collection!

Hey everyone!

So I am finally early to the party. I get to blog about some products before the hype has really picked up. I am feeling on top of the world because I haven’t seen a lot of posts or YouTube videos about the new Zoella Beauty collection! That is just crazy to me. Usually, I see a lot of posts when Zoe comes out with new products. I have a feeling it has to do with the fact that she hasn’t been as present on social media as of late and has said she is not feeling too good about her channel.

All that aside, I love Zoella Beauty. I don’t know if that is a bias because I love Zoe and have been following her for a long time. Though I’m not a huge fan of her body washes, they left me pretty dry. (I have a full blog post all about that HERE). I do absolutely love her body creams though. They aren’t sticky, they smell great and I feel hydrated after using them.

So that is why I was super excited to see that her whole Christmas line was on FeelUnique.com. You can get both the things I bought HERE and HERE! I bought two of her gift sets wanting all of them but knowing that I shouldn’t. I have enough body cream and I don’t have a bath in my current place so I couldn’t get any bath stuff. So I stuck with perfumes. I really have been wanting to try all of the scents from all of her collections but it was super hard to find, living here in Canada.

I have a full review of all the products up on my YouTube Channel!! If you want to hear more about what I have to say about the products you can watch my video down below. (SPOILER!! I’m super in love with what I bought!)

Splash Botanics Is In Canada // A Review

Hey everyone!!

So something very exciting happened yesterday! I got Zoe Sugg’s Splash Botanic’s beauty line in the mail today! I have been wanting these products since they came out. of course, living in Canada makes it just that much harder though. So I thought I would give a bit of a review/first impressions of the products.

IMG_5966.JPG

I bought as much of the collection as I could get my hands on. I would have bought everything except I don’t have a bath in my new place and I wouldn’t be able to use those products.

I think to start I want to talk about the price. Everything in this collection is very affordable. I think that was a really cool plus. I know Zoe had a “scandal” with her calendar being very expensive. I honestly have to agree with Zoe not having much of a say on the prices. Everything she sells independently are super reasonable in price.

First thing first the actual scent. I love it. I was really nervous with all the reviews that I would not love the scent. I am very happy to confirm that the scent is very light and fresh. I think it’s perfect for the summer.

Botanic’eau’s container is made of glass and is an awesome size. I was very happily surprise thinking it would be a lot smaller. I’m in love with the packaging. I have a feeling that this is going to my favourite perfume for the next few months.

Quench Me body sorbet is the body cream that comes with the line. I think the pot is such a cool way to package body cream. There is about 200ml in the container and that is about as much as any other body cream I’ve ever bought. I thought because of the size of the container there wouldn’t be much product.

IMG_5979.JPG

I haven’t tried the Make A Splash moisturizing body wash. When I opened it the body wash smelled like all the other products. I’m very excited to try a moisturizing body wash with a thick creamy consistency. I don’t think I’ve ever really tried any body wash like that.

Last but not least the newest addition to the Zoella Beauty creations, So Soft lip oil. I love this already. It smells different from the rest of the collection. The oil smells more like watermelon. It doesn’t taste overwhelmingly on the lips which is super important to me. I love the applicator finding it super easy to put on the lips. It’s also an applicator I see more in high-quality items. It looks like a clear lip gloss on the lips without being sticky. It doesn’t wear off when you eat either.

IMG_5975.JPG

All in all, I am so happy that I finally have these products in my hands. I feel like this collection is way better than her original collection in terms of the quality of the products. I found the original collection very drying and this one very hydrating. I recommend anyone that is a fan of Zoella or just looking for a very summer-y scent.

Book Thrifting? – Day #20

Hey everyone!

I went book thrifting! That actually wasn’t the plan but it’s just what happened. I was originally going to do a thrift haul for you guys but it didn’t work out. There’s not many thrift stores where I’m from and they don’t usually get a lot of nice things. Or well things that I would want.

They did have books though! I’m a bit of a book snob if I’m being honest. I love to buy new books because I hate when books are used. I just don’t like when pages are ripped or creased or stained. The irony is that I love to write in books.

IMG-1908

I quickly went through the book section not really thinking about it. Then I saw the book. I mentioned this books in my Summer Reading List. I found The Devil Wears Prada by Lauren Weisberger. The Devil Wears Prada is actually one of my favourite movies of all time. I’ve been wanting to read the book since I, well, found out it was a book. Working for Vogue is a dream of mine since I was about 15 years old.

After I found that book I decided it was time to see if they had any other books I’ve been wanting to pick up but have been having a hard time finding. The books were also like a 1$! If that means I don’t have to pay full price for a book I love it.

IMG-1912

I found the Fallen series by Thomas E. Sniegoski and Bellevue Square Michael Redhill. I think I paid a total of maybe 5 dollars for everything. That’s insane! Both The Devil Wears Prada and Bellevue Square look like they haven’t even been used! The Fallen series has a bit of writing in it but I think that’s cute.

I’m super impressed with what I picked up and I plan on going back soon. My mind has completely changed on used books. Maybe because it’s so cheap. All these books are about 20$ Canadian each and I paid 5$. If I can save money I love it.

Have any of you guys ever picked up any used books? If so how was your experience? Were you happy with what you got?

The Summer I Turned Pretty Book Review – Day #18

Hey everyone!

So I read a book haha. I love reading but I don’t get the time to read as much I would love to. So when I finally had the chance to read this book I thought I would review it for you guys.

51bOLZ9bZ9L._SX326_BO1,204,203,200_.jpg

So I got this bind up version of the first three books in the Summer I Turned Pretty series. I have finished the first book in the series. I got the book for like 7$ USD at Target. I thought it was worth the price, especially when books can run 10$ each.

I loved this book! I thought it was sweet and had the amazing reflection on what first love can do to us. The writing was easy and fun, the characters are relatable and the themes are important. It was the best summer read I could have picked up. It just made me want to go to the beach right that second.

I know this book didn’t get the best reviews because it’s predictable and some people think the main character is selfish. For the main character being selfish, I found her realistic. I remember being 15-16 and feeling the same way she did about her first love. For the predictability of the book, I don’t think that necessarily makes a book bad. I just find it was an easy read and easy to get sucked in.

I read the whole book in one sitting during a 12-hour bus ride. It made everything go faster. It was so easy to get lost in this book. I recommend it to anyone that just wants an easy short read that will give you all the feels. My friend is actually the one that suggested this book to me and I thank her for introducing this book series to me. I’m going to try and review the next two books in the series too if you’re interested in that.

If you want to pick up this book you can find it here on the CHAPTERS or TARGET website. Honestly, it’s summer goals.

ColourPop Sol + Mar Palettes Review – Day #11

Hey everyone!!

I am so so so excited for today’s post! I have a review for you guys! I have I think never been so excited to write a review! I got my hands on the ColourPop Sol + Mar palettes. They are gorgeous!

So I want to start off with since I live in Canada shipping took about 8 days. That’s actually not too bad. On top of that, I had no extra fees to cover which is always awesome! I’m just impatient so I was checking every day my shipment tracking number.

IMG_5934

Can I just say that ColourPop knows how to package their makeup? Nothing was broken everything looked amazing. The packaging was so adorable and I’m in love.

These palettes swatched really beautifully. Some of the shadows have different textures I noticed. Some of the shades are super soft while others aren’t. They are super pigmented which I love. I was worried that the blue would blend to nothing and it didn’t! It looks so great on the eye. The eyeshadows blended really well. I honestly have no complaint. I will be honest though I’m not the biggest connoisseur of makeup. I just love to play with it.

I think there are so many looks you can do with the individual palettes or even together. I created my look by using colours from both Sol and Mar. They’re a really great size so even though they are two different palettes they travel easy. I will be bringing them both on my trip I’m going on.

I decided to go against getting the whole collection. Though the liquid lips and the highlighters look beautiful I just didn’t feel the need to buy them. I don’t really wear  highlighter and I wanted to try out a specific ultra glossy lip. The whole collection is super affordable on sale as I write this for 68$. If you want the two palettes it’s 24$ and the palettes separately are 12$. The three lipsticks, if you’re interested in them, are 16$ together or 6$ on their own. The highlighters are 8$ each. I think all the prices make a lot of sense and really makes me want to buy from them again.

IMG_5939

I also got the Ultra Glossy Lip in Cabana Boy. It is amazing. It’s not sticky, it dries down but not too much. It looks amazing on the lip. I highly recommend the colour if you’re looking for a sparkly little something.

All in all, I am in love! These are some of the first products I’ve tried from ColourPop and I will for sure be buying from them again. They have me convinced. They’re cruelty-free which is very important to me. I think this is going to be my new go-to brand.

I Need A Judgment Detox!

I was so so so lucky to meet my spiritual guru the other night in Montreal. My Mother and I have been reading Gabrielle Bernstein’s novels for years now. So on the 13th, we went to go see her talk. It was the most incredible experience.

The only problem…I couldn’t stop judging the girl sitting next to me at a Judgment Detox talk. I don’t like to consider myself a judgmental person. I think a lot of people would say that but if we really look at our behaviour are we really as good as we think? I am open-minded and always fighting for equality so why do I make comments that are judgmental about people I don’t know?

I’ve learned that if someone does something I don’t agree with I automatically think something negative about them. “Why are they telling me how to do my job?” “Why won’t they stop talking, no one wants to hear another story about their cat!” etc. I like to think I am judging them because I want better for them.

But back to my story about the girl sitting next to me. My mother and I paid for VIP so the person sitting next to me did too. We brought two friends with us and we were all sitting in our respective rows. Our friends were lucky enough to get the seats right behind us.

My mother is a very dedicated and an expressive listener, especially when she is listening to spiritual things. So am I, and our friends. My mother is all about that “Amen” and “Yes” while Gabby was talking. The girl sitting next to me could not handle it.

I was judging someone judging my family and friends! Every time my mom would move she would roll her eyes or sigh. If my mom was too loud she would whisper to her friend and they would laugh. It was disturbing my experience because I was annoyed that they were being disrespectful.

Toward the end of the show she was texting and I looked over. I am not someone to read texts but this message just jumped out of me so hard I couldn’t help read it. She was texting a friend that was also at the show somewhere how she couldn’t stand my guru and said she wanted to get out of their as soon as possible.

I was enraged. How dare she not see the brilliance of my guru. How dare she judge my family and friends at a seminar about learning how to stop judging.

I had to take a second and realize I needed to use her steps that she was talking about. Use her book. One of the biggest parts of judging is because something happened to you in your past that makes you judge. This girl judging my family was a wound in my from high school when students use to judge me. I was judging her because I didn’t want my loved ones to feel the pain I felt from her judgment.

I learned at the talk that judgment is not something we want to do. It is a self-protection method. We judge because of our own experiences our own mistakes and wounds. I recommend not only seeing Gabrielle Bernstein live because she is amazing and the most wonderful spiritual leader but you learn. If you are open to learning she will teach you. IF you are open to the universe and her guidance, your life will be changed.
