Review: ColourPop Puppy Love Super Shock Eyeshadow

ColourPop Puppy Love Eyeshadow Review 1

I don’t purchase eyeshadows very often, but I was drawn to this one from ColourPop due to its beautiful colour and charity connection.

As you may already know from reading my blog, I’m an animal lover. I donate to animal charities often and was so excited to find out that all proceeds from the sale of ColourPop’s Super Shock Eyeshadow in Puppy Love will be donated to Best Friends Animal Society to help make L.A. a no-kill city (NKLA). I think that this is a great initiative and a worthy cause to support.

This was my first ColourPop purchase, and I was very impressed with the transaction process. Since I’m in Canada, I was a bit hesitant to order this $5 eyeshadow since the shipping was $12.73. However, since I was a first time customer, I received a $5 discount code which helped. Shipping was also very quick. I received the shadow in about four business days. It was securely packaged and came with a thank-you card from ColourPop.

February 2016 Teen Yoga Box Review

February Teen Yoga Box Review 2

February Teen Yoga Box Review 3

When I was twelve, I was told that I would experience the best years of my life in high school. While I met some great people and learned more about myself, it was definitely a stressful time filled with unexpected challenges and changes.

I learned along the way that taking a few moments do something relaxing and enjoyable can help make the teen years a bit easier. That’s where TeenYogaBOX comes in. It’s a nice monthly treat for teens that reminds them to take time for and be more thoughtful towards themselves. Boxes include 3-5 carefully selected, hand-made items and activities to help teens find their authentic self by reducing stress, building self-esteem, and encouraging positive self-worth and a sense of control over their lives.

Each TeenYogaBOX has a monthly theme. February’s box* focuses on self-love and believing that you are a valuable and worthy person.

St Patrick s Day Nail Art

While looking through the Writing Beauty nail art archives this month, I noticed two things. The first is that I created my first St. Patrick's Day nail art back in 2012. This was back when I was really into using nail art pens.
