Work Station Monday. What is on your desk?

Plants, books, organiser, to-do list, calendar. 

Stationary and more plants. 

Don't forget the need for technology.

And of course a cup of tea or coffee and the need for music to get through the day.

Fashion Splurge

 Jessica shoes, Sears Outlet Store. $9.99 Love these shoes. I have been looking for some t-bar shoes that are not clumpy for a while and I found the last pair in my size. These are lovely on and are comfortable too. It has a nice heal that I can cope with.
 Night gown by Jessica, Sears Outlet Store, I got this for $24.99. This gown is nice and long, it reaches my ankles, you have no idea how hard it is for me to get a dress to be fit me in length, long dresses drag on the floor these days because the length on regular size products have increased in the last ten years. They only had a large size but as it happens it is nicer to sleep in, less likely to break a strap when turning in my sleep. 

Joe Browns Jacket from the UK online store. I got this in the sale, my mum got this for me and gave it to me as a gift when she visited me in Canada. Nice with jeans, great with a skirt I have that gives more of a bohemian style. 

Calvin Klein rain coat at The Bay $119.00

Ipsy Glam Bag Review

My little bag of goodies. I am very happy with all the products especially the nail polish.. The eyeliner is a nice travel size the Bombshell powder I have yet to use, I tend not to use powders on my face. The Cailyn lip gloss or to be precise the, Art Touch Tinted Lip Gloss, is as expected except it is nice and smooth and moisturizing but with all lip glosses I have worn I have yet to find one that is as hard wearing as a lipstick. As soon as I eat or drink it has to be reapplied. Nonetheless, it is a great lip gloss for the upcoming colder months. The colour I received was Basic Instinct. The Briogeo Don't Despair Repair is a nice product, it is upto 90% natural which is a bonus too and you can purchase this from Sephora. 

 The Sally Hansen Miracle Gel is truly a fabulous product and I wear it on my toes for when I am in the yoga studio. It lasts, it did not chip for a week and a half and that was because I knocked my toe. They looked shiny and healthy and very hard wearing. This is by far one of the best nail polishes I have ever used. My colour was Pretty Piggy. This is by far my favourite item.

Ipsy Glam Bag September 2014 Review

This is my first ever Ipsy Glam Bag and I am impressed. I had low expectations but I am so pleased with my goodies. I like the packaging, nice and bright pink bubble wrap package. The make-up bag is super cute and I like the studs on it. I received a deep hair conditioner, natural eyeliner, Bombshell powder, Sally Hansen gel nail kit and glossy lipstick. Once I have tested the products I will post a blog.

Hope your Ipsy bag was awesome too.

Ipsy Glam Bag

I subscribed to Ipsy a few months ago and I am finally off the wait list.  I will be receiving my September 2014 Glam Bag soon. It costs around $14-$15 dollars for Canadians. 

As soon as the product is being shipped an email will show in your inbox. Also, I saw an email today which shows what I will be getting in my bag but I had to share it on Facebook before reviewing and I could receive 10 Ipsy points by doing so. 

I am liking the look of each product, I just hope the sizes are good. I used to be subscribed to GlossyBox UK and I was impressed by their sample sizes, generally speaking they were full sized products. I have a feeling Ipsy is very much sample size but we shall see. 

I tend to wear natural looking make-up so I am not surprised by the colour chooses here. The Be A Bombshell Smooth Criminal Powder looks interesting, I have not heard of this before, it will be nice to try something new. Don't Despair Repair Conditioning Mask will be useful after the summer sun has hit my hair and I have had it coloured recently too. The Cailyn lip gloss, not sure about this I hear it is meant to be very good, lip glosses tend to be sticky and disappear after supping a drink or licking the lips a few times, however, it is meant to be good for dry, chapped lips so will be extra useful during the change in season. Sally Hansen nail gel will be a nice addition, I have not used the gels yet.

So far so good. I look forward to opening my bag.
