Victoria's Secret Garden Haul

I'm a sucker for smell good... it can be lotions, body sprays, perfume, candles- anything that has a nice scent I have to have it!

I hadn't bought any body care products from Victoria's Secret in ages, I fell back in love with their scents when I went to their store, it didn't help that they had a buy 7 for $35 and get the 8th item for free sale. Of course, I had to get them. I bought my fave scent Love Spell and I bought 6 of their other newer scents (I picked up some undies too but I'm not revealing them here :) I know the lotions look small in the pics but they're actually 8.4 fl oz... it's a generous size for the price.

Mango Temptation, Exotic Bloom, Island Breeze and Pure Seduction

Mango Temptation (my new fave!) has notes of mango-nectar and hibiscus.

Exotic Bloom is made with coconut orchid and musk.

Island Breeze is made with ocean beeze and pineapple!

Pure Seduction is one of the sronger scents made with casaba melon, plum and freesia.
Love Spell, Pure Seduction and Luscious Kisses
Love Spell (my fave!) is made with peach, cherry blossom and white jasmine.

Luscious Kisses is made with valencia orange, coconut and tonka bean.
I love all of the new scents and the silky-soft way the lotion feels on my skin is heavenly!

It would take me forever to use all of the scents, plus I didn't want to be greedy so I gave a few of them to my mom and I'm going to give a few of them as gifts.

FYI, the sales rep was very helpful and pleasant, she told me their next Semi-Annual sale starts June 14th... so mark your calendars... I can't wait to stock up on some more lotions and lingerie!

How I Refurbished my Louis Vuitton Speedy...

I bought an authentic preloved Louis Vuitton Damier Speedy bag a few months back. While I was so excited to finally get the bag and wear it, I realized (at that time of buying and when I received it) that the bag had some wear on it that could use some fixing up. After searching online, I found a blogger, Lollipuff, who posted an article on how to refurbish LV bags.

Based on the recommendations in the post, I used the following products: Mr. Clean Magic Eraser, Blue Magic Metal Polish cream (tube) and Cadillac Boot and Shine leather conditioner. I also used laundry detergent and baby wipes. All of the products used can be used on any bag to spruce it up. Read on for the deets, to see how you can spruce up your handbag!


At first glance, the bag had some sheen on the exterior. Most of the brass fixtures had green tarnishing (which happens with aging of brass). The leather handles were dull. The bag had lost some of its shape. The inside was the kicker! The red interior was terrib…

Mac Face and Body Foundation Review

One of my most used foundations is the Mac Face and Body liquid foundation. I've been promising a  review on it, so here it is.

Product Claims
"A water-based, water-resistant foundation that provides long-lasting, natural coverage for face and/or body. Ideal for all skin types. Face and Body Foundation provides sheer, natural looking coverage in an easy to blend, water-resistant formula. The long-lasting formula is available in a wide range of colours and contains several emollients to help moisturize and condition the skin. It delivers professional looking results that meet the exacting standards of beauty photography and is ideal for perfecting the face and body."

-Price is $32.50 retail and about $19 if you're a Mac pro card member (That could be a con based on your finances).
-For the price you pay it gives you a lot of foundation. It's in a 4 fl oz bottle.
-Because it's water based it doesn't feel heavy, it feels very light on the face.

Black Opal: True Color Pore Perfecting Liquid Foundation Review

As of late, I've have been loving this foundation. I have gotten a tan, and this prompted me to buy a new foundation matching my new shade. The color that I bought is Truly Topaz and probably in the Fall/Winter I will be back to my Heavenly Honey shade. I've used Black Opal foundations before, and I figured I would give this new one a try. Read on for my thoughts.


"Keep them guessing with picture poreless skin. This lightweight, oil-free liquid foundation seamlessly blends to provide flawless coverage with a high definition finish. Exclusive poreless technology helps minimize the appearance of enlarged pores, controls excess oil and renews skin natural radiance. Oil, fragrance and paraben-free formula. Suitable for all skin types, including sensitive."


-Inexpensive, it's $10.95 online and retails anywhere between $12-$13 in stores.
-Light to medium coverage, this is a pro for those who have relatively clear skin.
-The coverage is buildable.
