Recently the Parade of Homes started in our city, and my family and I decided to have a look into these wonderful homes.

Parade of Homes is a show case of new homes held annually in several regions.

We have no intentions of buying a new home, as our current house is still fairly brand new.  We just wanted to take a look at the beautiful show case of homes…no harm in that.

These homes gave me all the feels with walking in and having instantly been hit with the smell of a newly built house… brought back so much memories.

B1A0551C-506F-4FA9-BF26-2982BA309035I have to admit, looking at these homes made us all feel like building a brand new house, it is just so Inspiring with all the gorgeous interior designs.  Makes me question myself why I can’t design my house to look this good.

Karmin Salon Series Ultralight Professional Ionic Hair Dryer

It feels like it has been a Hot minute since I had a new Hair Dryer.  I literally had mine for a good 10 years, and hanging on to dear life.

I think it was definitely time to let it go, I’ve had some ups and downs with it, all the way from long hair to short hair, from black hair to blonde hair, to it only turning on when it wanted to, so I had to say good-bye.

Now this is when the Karmin Pro hair dryer comes in.  I have always wanted a good hair dryer to add to my collection of hair tools, one that dries quick, but won’t dry out your hair.

This is the Karmin Salon Series Ultralight Professional Ionic Hair Dryer.

This Dryer is designed to prevent damage and dry out, and it features an electronic Ion generator which works to generate over 300 million negative Ions, which helps reduce the drying time by 70%, on top of that it helps by adding shine which leaves your hair feeling smooth and soft.

I have never had my hands on a professional hair dryer before, so I am feeling quite blessed to have this beauty in my possession.

Now you are probably wondering “well Sharee, how much is this hair dryer?”.  Ok, this might seem like a shook, because it was for me when I saw the retail price.  TheKarmin Professional hair dryer retails for $289.95, but it is on sale at the moment for $229.95.  Still on the high side, but in all honesty, if you compare this Karmin Pro hair dryer to any other professional hair dryers, this one is pretty much just like a penny in the Pocket.

I say it’s quite a good investment.  If you want great hair, you definitely have to invest in it by getting the right tools and products for your hair.

I Highly recommend this hair dryer to any hair professionals out there, I guarantee your clients will leave your salon feeling inspired with their new Healthy and Shiny Hair.

Unlike other professional Dryers, this One is Ultra Lightweight with an ergonomic design, which provides you to work comfortably while styling…reducing the hand, wrist and arm fatigue.

Here are some more product Features

  • the ionic technology reduces frizz, while enhancing the shine.  Repels static and seals the hair’s cuticle for a perfectly smooth finish.
  • the moist ceramic heat and the far infrared rays work to dry the hair from inside out a lot more quicker than regular hair dryers.

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!!

JANUARY BOXYCHARM BOX

I am a makeup loving girl, but let’s face it, starting a makeup collection can really burn a hole in the wallet. Mostly Every makeup guru wants to keep up with all the latest trends in makeup, but how can most average girls do that wit a specific makeup budget?

The answer is BOXYCHARM !! Let me just virtually shout out That I LOVE BOXYCHARM?

BOXYCHARM is a monthly subscription box where you receive 4-5 full size makeup products for $21 a month, however if you are Canadian you are looking at $35 a month. This is not a bad deal at all considering that if you put the price of all the products together (that you get in your monthly box) it will come up to $100+.

In the box you get items like Makeup palettes, lipsticks, lipgloss, face masks, blush..just to name a few.

So if you are wanting to build up on your makeup collection, and are on a strict budget, I highly recommend Subscribing to Boxycharm.

If that doesn’t convince you to subscribe, I don’t know what will. The great thing is that every month is different.

There are different themes for each month for all the charmers (charmers is what they call the individuals that are subscribed to their box). It’s almost like a mystery box you receive, and each time I’ve had it, it never disappoints.

Let me say this..I have been subscribed to boxycharm for over a year, and ever since being a CHARMER I have not bought any other makeup product on the market.

I mean, why would I? If I can get all these goodies every month for such a cheap price.
