Clif Organic Trail Mix Bar Review

Wednesday, May 20, 2015

A few weeks ago, I was given the opportunity to try out a new product line that CLIF bars launched, called the CLIF Organic Trail Mix Bar to review. One word sums up this little treat OMG (or more like three)! These new bars are packed with flavour and my favourite thing in the world - CHOCOLATE!
These tasty treats come in a variety of flavours including:
Coconut Almond Peanut
Cranberry Almond
Dark Chocolate Almond Sea Salt
Dark Chocolate Cherry Almond
Dark Chocolate Peanut Butter
Dark Chocolate Pomegranate Raspberry
Each one has such a unique taste ad flavour, but my absolute favourite was the dark chocolate and almond sea salt. TO DIE FOR! my least favourite, coconut almond peanut - probably because there was no chocolate involved ;)
Each and every bar is made with organic ingredients and is less than 200 calories. In my books, that's pretty darn awesome for a treat/snack on the go. They are perfect for travel too. I ended up eating these little guys on the plane and in between long layovers! It felt good to be putting good things into my body rather than a bag of potato chips. Also they are gluten free! A Big Bonus in my books. 

Have you tried these bars? What do you think?

Make Up For Ever - Mist & Fix

Wednesday, March 18, 2015

Recently I was given a sample of Make Up For Ever's Mist & Fix to try. I have been a HUGE fan of all things Make Up Forever. From their Black Ink Liner, to their Artisan Brush Collection, to their HD Foundation and Kit. I was absolutely thrilled to try their Mist and Fix and use it with my daily makeup application routine.
As someone who walks to work daily, the elements are always, if not harshly exposed to my skin. Whether its the blistering cold, the wind, and damp (early) spring days, I was really looking forward to something that would keep my makeup in place.
I was however a bit disappointed in this formula. For one thing, after three days of wearing the Mist & Fix, I did notice my skin started to break out. The formula is suposedly ideal for all skin types, but i have to say that it wasn't doing mine any favours. :(

PROS:
Alcohol Free
Light
Price $34.00 for the large bottle, $14.00 for a travel side (available at Sephora)
Did not feel sticky
Dried quickly
Dermatologist-tested

CONS:
Made me break out (I have sensitive skin)
Did not last the 12 hours I was hoping it would
Did not see much of a difference

Have you tried Make Up For Ever's Mist and Fix? What are your impressions?

Too Much of a Good Thing

Thursday, February 19, 2015

Oftentimes I look back at outfit posts and wonder...why? Just like everyone else I am prone to making some fashion blunders along the way. This outfit was it for me. Too. Much. Purple. Don;t even get me started on the blazer. Some days, we can hit it right on the nose...other times, it can be too much of a good thing.
