Spring 2017 SampleSource Box – Canadian Edition

Hey all!

Just before Easter vacation I received my Spring 2017 SampleSource box. I’ve decided to do something a little bit different for this post. I’ve tried a few of these products and decided to share a mini review with you all!


So, let’s get into the haul and review!

April 2017 Sample Basket – #UseItUp

Hey All!

While cleaning recently, I was reminded that I have an abundance of samples here that I want to use up. This sparked me thinking about how to incorporate this into my blog. I know many Youtubers do ‘Project Pan’ videos and decided to do somewhat of a spin-off of that. I tried this with #SampledOutSaturdays a while back and basically failed.

This time I decided to start my #UseItUp Challenge for myself. I bought this cute little basket in the Easter section at Dollarama for $1.25 and threw a bunch of samples into it. To help keep me accountable, I am going to share this with you all! Hence the first installment of #UseItUp; the April 2017 Sample Basket!

Right!?!?! 😊

Babe Box – Add On’s #GirlPowerBabeBox

Hey All!

So yesterday I posted about the Spring 2017 Babe Box. (If you haven’t seen that post already, make sure to click here and give it some love!)

Along with ordering the Babe Box, I was given the chance to order some sample packs. It seems that Babe Box also offers some different perks to add to their box. Right now they are giving to the chance to add one of three sample packs on for free with the purchase of the Spring Sample Box. However, the sample set that I added to my purchase for $3 Cdn is not available at the moment.

I figured it would still be a great thing to share with you all. It will give you some ideas of the types of things you can have to look forward to with your Babe Box.

So let’s get into the goodies I ordered!

Spring 2017 Babe Box – #GIRLPOWERBABEBOX

Hey All!

I recently discovered Babe Box through the wonderful world of Instagram. I spend way too much time perusing through the posts of friends and those recommended  posts. I was excited to be given the chance to ordering and reviewing a Babe Box.

What is Babe Box? Well, according to the website,

We’re a bunch of babes who want to help a bunch of babes.

We’re different from other subscription boxes because our brand is about more than just sending you a box of goodies and letting you have it. We want to be friends that share trends and must-have products and then talk about it! If the product wasn’t for you, that’s totally fine, but if you loved something we want to know about it so that we can continue to put these much-loved products in your seasonal boxes. The more we get to know you, the better we can customize our boxes to what you like.

Our mission to bring you the latest and greatest products in beauty, fashion and entertainment–right to your doorsteps–that you will love.

Babe Box.

This season we’re featuring 6 items that’ll fuel your strong! Start your day right with an energizing and good-for-you breakfast, put your best face forward with healthy skin and a long-lasting lip lacquer that can keep up with your busy schedule, smell great and feel great with your new intoxicating hand cream and stay empowered and inspired with cute pin-ful reminders.

Trash Day: Recent Empties

Hey all,
Hope you are all having a wonderful weekend. Today I’m bringing you some empties from the past few months. Hopefully I won’t have so much sitting and waiting to be reviewed  now that I’m back to blogging. I am sure there are some other products that I’ve probably used up and didn’t save. I’m still trying to use up the abundance of products that I have in my stash. The only thing I’ve been buying are the things that I run out of completely. I also think I’m going to start up my #SampledOutSaturdays again. This worked great when I focused on it before.

With that being said, let’s get into my trash!
