Vegas Baby!

Long time no blogging! This has actually been the longest I have gone without doing a blog post!  I sincerely apologize, I have just been so busy and I was out of town for five nights in Las Vegas!

I was in Vegas previously in February of this year, so it was kind of weird going back six months later, but fun nonetheless!  Since Vegas is a crazy city that is filled with partying, shopping, gambling, sight-seeing, and so much more I thought I would do a fun little series about my trip. I went with a girlfriend of mine and we had an absolute blast!  We stayed five nights at the Mirage (which I highly recommend) and did a little bit of everything.  It was a crazy trip but very tiring at the same time.  I had a blast though.   Anyways, I’m going to save the stories for the upcoming posts, make sure you check out my blog in the the upcoming days for everything from our hotel, the nightclubs, shopping, blow outs, gambling, etc., as well as a few tips and tricks to maximize your Vegas vacation. Let me know if you guys want to see a haul post as well.  Truth be told, I think I spent the most money on makeup (again!), aside from one big special purchase.  Sephora is way cheaper in the States and Vegas has a MAC Pro store, so I usually stock up.

Another Day, Another Dog Post…

Hi all!  I thought I would do a quick little dog post (I’ve been doing a ton of them recently it seems like).  My friend Janis (check out her blog here, it’s awesome!) came over with her dog Gir to have a play date.  Unfortunately Ziggy didn’t like Gir too much so he had to stay in the house, but Chase (my parent’s dog) had a blast.  Chase is a really shy dog so it’s nice to see he made a friend.

Hope you liked the post!  I have a ton of upcoming posts planned, it’s a bit difficult because I use the self-timer on my camera and sometimes (most of the times) the shots come out blurry.  I’ll get it all figured out though.  Also, you may notice that my blog template is changed, I updated it and it totally screwed everything up so I changed it to something else.  I don’t love it as much as the other one but c’est la vie!  On a positive note, I’m going to Vegas on Thursday, can’t wait!

Hope you had a fab Saturday and don’t forget to subscribe!

 

Be Smooth

Which one is the real egg?

So a few days ago I received an Evolution of Smooth (eos) Lip Balm Smooth Sphere from their Canadian PR company.  I have seen these things before on YouTube videos and blogs and I thought they were the cutest little things!

Anyways, so the eos Lip Balm Smooth Spheres just became available to all major Canadian retailers this August so now Canadians can keep their lips nice and smooth all year round!

Alright, so what exactly is so special about it you ask?  Well, I can think of a few things off the top of my head.  Obviously the design factor on these guys are really cool.  They are literally like little eggs that you unscrew on top to get the “yolk” out of the product, being the actual lip balm.  I love the packaging on this! It’s nice and smooth and I find myself constantly unscrewing it whenever it’s near me.  Like if I see it sitting there I’ll pick it up and just play with it.  It’s so soft and so fun to screen and unscrew.

The actual lip balm itself is huge!  This thing will probably last me a few years.  At first glance it looks almost too big to use on your lips, however, I think it’s supposed to be used on both of your lips at the same time.  The balm also has a really nice scent to it, the one I received is the Summer Fruit flavour, the other flavours that were released in Canada are Sweet Melon and Honeysuckle Honeydew.

Lastly, and I think the biggest plus, the product is made from a blend of 100 per cent natural and 95 per cent organic ingredients, infused with vitamin E, sheer butter, and jojoba oil.  It is also gluten, petrolatum, and paraben-free, so it’s good for you and the environment.  With all the chemicals they put in beauty products nowadays it’s nice to see some stuff that features organic ingredients.

So my thoughts on it?  Like I said, one of my favourite things about it is just playing with it.  I find myself constantly applying it on my lips whenever it’s in my sight.  If I were to compare this to my all-time favourite lip product Rosebud Salve, there are quite a lot of differences between the two.  The eos Smooth Sphere is more of a waxy texture, whereas Rosebud Salve has a jelly one.  Also, Rosebud Salve is good for things other than just your lips.  With that being said, I still really like this product and have been using it over my Rosebud ever since I got it.

I’m not sure of the price in Canada, however it retails for $3.29 USD.  They should be available in drug stores like Shoppers Drug Mart or you can order them online.

Have you tried an eos Smooth Sphere?  What were your thoughts?  Leave me a comment below and don’t forget to subscribe!
