Good bye 2013

I can't believe it has already been a year since i've started blogging! It went by pretty fast and i've learnt a lot about myself and the blogging community. I'm happy to say that im no longer a rookie blogger :) heehee. With that said, here is a recap on some of my favourite outfits of 2013. I want to thank you guys for all the love and support you have given me and wish you all the best in the New Year. <3

Santa baby

Christmas is one of my favourite holidays of the year and im honestly blessed to be able to celebrate it with friends and family each year. I hope everyone got what they wanted and I want to wish everyone and their families a very safe and Merry Christmas ^_^ 

We could be royal

So getting back into routine is not the easiest thing for me. It's been a week since i got back from Cuba and i'm still trying to catch up on my emails and of course Christmas. Im sure everyone's been busy with the holiday season so here's a little inspiration. A jaquard print skirt paired with a basic top and chunky necklace is perfect for holiday parties. It's formal enough for work and cute enough for after hours. 

Influenster: #MapleVoxBox Review

The best thing about coming back home after a vacation is to have boxes waiting in the mailbox for me ^_^ Along with a bunch of online purchases, to my surprise I received my first VoxBox from Influenster. I've been a member for a while now and i find their site to be comparable to something like Chickadvisor. 

So getting right into business here is what i thought of the products in my Vox Box

Skinny Cow Milk Chocolate flavour heavenly crisp - $1.29 per bag, $4.29 per 4-pack
A chocolatey wafer, it was good but i didn't find anything amazing about it.

Skinny Cow Milk Chocolate dreamy clusters - $1.29 per bar, $4.29 per 4-pack
I found this a bit too sweet for me but i loved the texture. Out of the two Skinny Cow snacks, I'd prefer the first one.

NYC Big Bold Curl Mascara - $4.99
This was probably my favourite thing in the box. The mascara is very light and doesn't clump up. The oversized curve brush was perfect and i could see a difference in my lashes. They were fuller and longer.

NYC Big Bold Plumping Lip gloss - $4.99
I'm more of a lipstick girl but i thought since i got this in my box I'd give it a try. My first experience with a plumping lip gloss wasn't good so i was kind of hesitant to try this. I put one coat on and instantly my lips felt tingly. I personally don't like any plumping component in my lip products, i mean looking good shouldn't be this painful, and so i would say that this is a no for me.

Broadway Nails impress press-on manicure - $8.99 - $10.99
I've always had real nails so i was pretty curious to see what this whole craze about stick on nails was about. I after today i realized why these press-ons will never work for me. First off, they were too short, even for just my nail bed (the part before your nail starts). and secondly, the sizes only fit my pinky and ring finger becuase i have really thin fingers. Again this is a no for me.

Montage Jeunesse Clay spa - $2.49
I haven't had time to try this yet but it has gotten pretty good reviews.

Ice Breaker DUO raspberry - $1.99
These were pretty good but i personally prefer the strawberry over raspberry

Once i catch up on everything, i'll be back on track with my ootd. I got a bunch of cozy sweaters and i can't wait to style it for you guys!

Disclosure: I received these products complimentary from Influenster for testing purposes.
