DOLLAR STORE HAIR EXTENSIONS ARE A MUST TRY!!

I was shopping at my local a Dollarama store when I came across some hair extensions. I didn’t think much of it at the time, so I ignored it and walked away.

So on my next Dollarama visit I convinced myself to buy it and just test it out. I have to say that it was the best decision I made.

This was the hair piece that I bought, and I believe it was only $4. It was a ponytail extension, but in fishtail form. I ended up buying 2 boxes just incase I really like it.

The store only had brown coloured hair pieces, but I figured I’d make it work regardless. As I was walking around the mall, a light bulb went off in my head.

I Instantly had a solution to make the extensions match my hair. Mind you..my actual hair color is a silvery grey color, which will definitely not match the hair piece. So I made my way over to Shoppers drug mart, where I was looking for a particular spray.

This Spray is a root touch up spray, meant to cover up grey hairs, but I thought it could work to turn my hair brown. And guys..work it did!!

This is what the hair piece looked like when I put it on, clearly you can see how it does not match. The braid itself is pretty cute, but somehow..it didn’t really do anything for me.

So I had another bright idea!! I decided to remove the braids and see what the hair looks like.

Guys…I was so SHOOK!!

The hair was so beautiful, long and so full!! I was amazed beyond belief how this dollar store extension could look this good! I literally felt like I won!!!

Arianna who????

Since I bought 2 boxes, I decided to remove be braids off of the other one and use both on my hair for some added volume.

I’m dead!!! Look how freakin good that looks! And look how well my real hair blends with the brown extensions.

You would not know I was wearing fake hair, let alone a Dollarama purchase.!!

If you have a Dollarama store near you, go to it right away and look for these Revlon fishtail braids extensions, you will not be disappointed!

Marc Jacobs Velvet Noir

When I was a teeny little tot, my mom would cut my eyelashes in hopes that they would grow back longer.

Not too sure if this trick is true, but I don’t think it worked for me because my lashes are still short.

So I have always been on the hunt for a good mascara that could lengthen my lashes and make it appear fuller.

Although I’ve come across some good ones there still wasn’t the ONE that I stuck with.

Recently I was sent the Marc Jacobs velvet Noir primer voxbox from Influenster, where I received the Velvet Noir primer and the Velvet Noir mascara.

I was instantly intrigued with the packaging of the tube, I would say that it is aesthetically pleasing.

So I put the mascara and primer to the test.

This is my lashes with nothing on it, pure nakedness.

Here it is with the primer, who needs mascara this is the new fashion statement here LOL.

Kidding……

and here are my lashes with the mascara on I have to say that it does it’s job.

In all honesty, it does the work just like any other mascara I’ve tried. Although I do like the Mark Jacobs mascara, I don’t think I’ll purchase it.

The price for the mascara and primer retail for $26 each.

I did give my lashes a bit of a curl before applying any of the product on, giving the illusion of longer lashes.

Don’t get me wrong, I’ll still continue to use it until it is dried up, but that’s how far I’ll go.

VICHY LIFTACTIVE Collagen Specialist

As we age, sadly so does our skin. I know we hate to admit that..but it is the honest truth.

So lately I have been using VICHY LiftActive Collagen Specialist on my face every night.

This cream helps Compensate for the loss of Collagen by improving the skins firmness, with long lasting effects.

I like the way it feels in my face, it literally feels like silk (so soft and smooth)..I hope that means it’s working.

I was sent this product from the Influenster campaign, basically to test out and review. I am glad that they sent this Collagen cream to me, it was perfect timing as I was in the hunt for a good firming cream.

I still have yet to go with this product in order for me to see if it works. All I know is that if I continue to regularly use this, my skin will look a lot firmer, lifted, more even and hydrated.

One things for sure, In love how it feels on my skin, it feels just like a babies bottom.

SWEET CRAVINGS

It was a wondering Sunday morning, sun was glistening bright, but let me tell you, that beam of sunshine was slightly deceiving. Although it looked like it was beautiful outside, it was actually a dreadful minus 30 degrees with blowing snow..ugh (take me somewhere warm).

We still managed to make it despite the cold, so My family and I joined my mother at her church, (if you live in Winnipeg you can withstand any temperature no matter the circumstance). Once church was concluded, we all headed out for lunch at MONGO’S GRILL where my mom gratefully treated the whole family. It was great and I was completely stuffed.

I decided to continue the Sunday Famday with my 2 girls. They wanted to stop off at PETLAND to play with some bunnies, where they tried to convince me to buy one for them, unfortunately that was unsuccessful.

Let me tell you something, even though I have lived in Winnipeg (Winterpeg) all my life, I was literally freezing icicles!! When we got out of the vehicle, we were all running for shelter from this freezing blowing snow. Much to my surprise, I witnessed this individual sporting only a pair of shorts and hoody! Like dude that is not minus 30 attire! Crazy I tell ya.

As the day progressed, my girls were craving Kawaii Crepe, so being the loving mother that I am, I wanted to satisfy that.

I guess you can say everyone’s cravings were satisfied!!

KARMIN PROFESSIONAL G3 SALON PRO STRAIGHTENER IRON

1A174CEE-84F0-42AE-AEC7-4AFFBE0535C9

I have been on a quest to find a good flat iron for my hair.  For a while I have been using my Remington Wet to Straight  flat iron, it worked for me for many years, but as I cut my hair short I found that I was to wide for my hair.

I wanted to look for one of the skinnier straighteners, ones I can use to create waves/curls.  I have tried different kinds that I have purchased from AMAZON, because at the back of my mind, I did not want to break my wallet by spending so much on a flat iron.  Amazon was selling many straighteners less than $50 and I was fine with That.

This wasn’t until I heard about Karmin Professionals, they sell products such as hair dryers, curling irons, hair clippers, hair care etc.

So I had the opportunity to try out their G3 Salon Pro Straightener, and I have to say they did not disappoint.471C7450-D0A9-425B-867D-F6A5693DC3FC97040395-B7CC-4F95-9424-6C20694052A2.jpegThis flat iron is super lightweight (not like my other heavy straighteners), it comes with a pretty nice carrying case that you can also use as a heat mat.

Some of the features include:

  • Advanced 100% pure tourmaline ceramic plates
  • professional grade heating element for flash quick heating
  • variable temperature settings for all hair types
  • anti slip edges
  • slim handle design
  • won’t damage your hair
  • 3 year warranty

Just to name a few.

This straightener is perfect for salon professional use as well as personal at home use.  It’s comes in 5 different colors to choose from, your traditional Black and white, sleek pink, pretty purple and cool blue, basically one that suits your personal style.

The Karmin straightener retails for $159.95, it is quite an investment, but I guarantee it’s worth it.  I will give you guys a discount on your first purchse.  Just use my code shareeanonuevo to receive 10% off at the check out.

I made a Videoon how I created these easy curls using the Karmin straightener.  Hope you enjoy it!
