two thousand twelve

2012 was a good year , simple but good.  I celebrated my three year anniversary with my amazing boyfriend , watched my sister move to London , became a ski bunny , turned 20 years old , went
 on a road trip to seattle and made some new friends. I'm really looking forward to 2013 , I know this will be one of my most challenging years , seeing as I'm starting school 
January 7th. But lets just say , I am so READY for the upcoming changes and challenges in my life ! I'm so grateful for all my family and friends and of course my readers for 
the continued support.   Best wishes and Happy New Year !

Glossy Box Canada: November 2012

  •  Curel Hand and Cuticle Therapy Cream FULL SIZE ! ($3.99) - So thrilled about this product ! Just yesterday I was blabbing to my boyfriend how I need a new cream for winter ! This one doesn't disappointment , leaves your hands feeling moisturized but not greasy ! A + !
  • Vitabath Moisturizing Bath and Shower Gelee in Fresh Citrus Twist - I used this as a bubble bath last night and was pleasantly surprised ! It is paraben and sulphate free and has a great 'citrusy' and 'earthy' smell to it !
  • Nexxus Salon Hair Care: Hydration Kit - One of my favourite products to get in these boxes is defiantly shampoo's and conditioners ! They are both very hydrating and smell delicious , the shampoo has a hint of coconut !
  • Kryolan for Glossybox Blusher in 'Glossy Rosewood' FULL SIZE ($16.73) - A beautiful pink shade that will be perfect all year round ! Love how we got a full size blusher !  
  • Maybelline MNY My Gloss in '769' FULL SIZE ($7.49) - A nice gold sparkly lip gloss that screams new years eve !
  • Nicole by OPI Kardashian Kolor Holiday shades in 'Here We Kome A-Karoling' FULL SIZE ($10.99)- A deep shimmery purple that is perfect for the holidays ! I really wish I received 'all is glam , all is bright' but alas. . . I did not ! Maybe I'll have to pick it up myself !
  • two little bonuses in the box was a little yummy candy cane and an Uber loyalty card that you can use online to get 50% off ! This was also the first month that we got a glossymag ! its just a little book that has trends and tips !
This month's box was fantastic in my opinion ! Still not too pleased with the $6 price increase . . . but they did step it up this month with 4 full size products ! And this is the first box where I will actually use every single product ! The retail price for this box is roughly about $55 and and the monthly cost of the box is now $21 ! I will be sticking around for a couple more months to see what glossybox will do next and also to use my points for a free box !
