Happy Monday! Today I have for you my April Julep Maven box.
I ended up going with the Classic with a Twist box which included Jenna (orange) and Connie (purple) with the Lock Down Your Brows eyebrow gel. I then added on Randi (pink), Addison (yellow) and 3 emery boards (not shown) and got the lipgloss shown (no longer available) for buying three add-ons.
Honestly, I wasn’t crazy about trying the brow powder that was the feature beauty product last month. I use and love Anastasia Dipbrow and am not interested in trying anything else.
So, instead of just swatching, I decided to do some nail art as well.
First of all, I used Randi (pink) and Connie (purple) for a base coat. Randi is super smooth and wonderfully opaque in two coats. Connie is a little streaky and semi-translucent after two coats. I dotted on China Glaze Snow in a star formation and then added Addison (yellow) on Randi and Jenna (orange) on Connie in the middle and randomly around the flowers.
A couple of days later I did this dotticure using (L to R): OPI’s Just Groovy [no longer available], Julep Jenna, Randi, Leah and Addison. I used China Glaze Snow for the dots again. Addison (yellow) is surprisingly opaque after two coats as is Jenna (orange). Both had great consistency and went on easily.
Here is my Cinderella hand, proving that (occasionally) I paint both hands to match.
Overall, I am very happy with my April box. The colours are bright and fun, perfect for summer and the brow gel will make a great gift for a friend.

I love collaborations. As I type this I’m wearing one of Sarah Stevenson’s pieces for Target. And Prom Queen blush from the Veronica and Betty collection that MAC did a couple of seasons ago.
Here is a sample of my favourite shoes from the newly released Keds and Kate Spade collection exclusively at Town Shoes. Enjoy!
Which one is your favourite? Happy Shopping!
Sorry I haven’t posted for 12 days. I had this post all set up and ready to go before my trip to Toronto last week and between packing and the long weekend, I just forgot to press go. And then I had good intentions of posting while I was in Toronto but that didn’t happen either.
So, I am back and had a great time, especially checking out all the new trends coming down the pipe for spring. I’ll be sure to post what I bought soon.
Today I wanted to talk about a huge trend that is starting to pop up everywhere: the pointed toe ballet flat. It’s so cute, I
think know I want several pairs.
This happy yellow pair is from Toms.
This faux croc Chinese Laundry pair is available at Rooster Shoes.
I love the Material Girl line at Hudson’s Bay. Here she does a cute geometric tribal print.
I am a total sucker for Sam and usually pick up a pair of his sandals every summer. Hopefully this gorgeous shoe will come in some colours.
Club Monaco just started doing shoes in the past couple of years and while I haven’t been in love with any yet, these white ones are definitely in the right direction for me.
I love this yellow pair from Vince Camuto, also available at Hudson’s Bay.
Which pair(s) do you like? Or is there a completely different pair that you have your eye on? Leave me a comment. Happy Shopping!
