Totally Random Friday – August 29

Wow, did that week ever go by fast! Did it for you too? I recently started a new job and it really hasn’t kicked into high gear as it’s summer but boy, I got a good taste of what fall is going to be like. Lemme tell you, the forecast is BIZZY! lol

Anyways, here are some interesting things I’ve found this week:

1. Luxe Box by Loose Button is finally offering referral credits. If you’ve read my Spring and Summer Luxe Box reviews and you love them and want to sign up, I’d love it if you could use my referral link here. If you want to receive the Fall Luxe Box you have until Sept 7th.

2. The Simpsons makeup collaboration with MAC is up on the website for sale. It arrives in stores next Wednesday and I will be there checking it out. For someone who doesn’t care about the Simpsons at all, I am really looking forward to checking out the new lipglasses. Check out the reviews by Kandee.

3. Fall fashion is slowly rolling out around us. And does it seem even slower than last year? It’s like even the fashion industry felt the polar vortex from last winter and is dragging their heels into fall. Here’s a couple of cute pieces from Kate Spade that I am just loving!

4. These boots from Aldo need to be discussed. The colour says beige on the website but do you see that shine?! I am running down there soon to see if these babies actually rock as much as I think they do. I’ll keep you posted.

So, how was your week? Any plans on saying adios to summer during this September long weekend? Happy Shopping!

Totally Random Friday – July 11th

Hey folks! Happy Friday! Sorry about the lack of action around here. It’s been kind of dead for shopping and the week went by really fast. I’ll also warn you that I’m going camping with my family next week so it’s going to be pretty slow around the blog too.

So, a couple of interesting things this week:

You’ve probably heard of Jamberry nail wraps. Most people know a rep or know someone who knows a rep. My first impression is that they are expensive and the reviews are really mixed about those that love them and those that think they are just ok. At $17 a pack, the cheapskate in me needs them to be amazing. Well, Jamberry has jumped on the subscription box wagon. For $25 incl shipping they will send you min $30 worth of Jamberry nail wraps and other miscellaneous nail care products. They also guarantee that there will be subscription-only designs available. It’s unclear if they ship to Canada or how much extra that would be. It’s also unclear if you are able to choose your designs for the month or it’s all just a surprise. Watch the video here. Anyone signing up? I’d love to hear the reviews.

Temptalia (goddess of swatching and all makeup everywhere) posted about a MAC and Simpson collaboration earlier this week. They are slated to come out at the end of August and so far just teaser pics have been released. I am not a Simpsons fan at all and thought I wouldn’t be interested in this collection but the eyeshadows shown look amazing and is that yellow lip glass?? Um, wth? This definitely needs more investigating.

ID_D30_12018.dngAnyone else a Hunger Games fan? Refinery29 posted that the teaser trailer for the first part of the last movie (did that make sense?) is up for preview. Looking forward to more previews and will definitely be seeing this when it comes out.

Keeping with the movie theme, I loved Garden State when it came out 10 years ago (and now I really feel old). So I’m really looking forward to the new Zach Braff movie, Wish I Was Here. I was IN LOVE with the Garden State soundtrack as well so I am pumped about the soundtrack for the new movie. It releases on Tuesday, July 15th and is available for presale on the movie website or iTunes

What did you get up to this week? Anything coming up you are excited about? Happy Shopping!
