I Tried The “Pokémon GO” Frappuccino

When the “Pokémon GO” app was released in the summer of 2016, Starbucks shortly after came out with a sweet, fruity drink inspired by the game to generate hype around it. Living in Canada, the drink was never released here, and since then has been discontinued in the United States. But I really wanted to try it! Being both a Starbucks and Pokémon fan, I loved the collaboration and was disappointed that it never made its way into Canada.

However, many of Starbucks’ discontinued and fan-inspired beverages end up on the infamous “Secret Menu“, a place where coffee lover’s imaginations run wild and the possibilities are endless.  After researching exactly what makes up a “Pokémon GO” Frappucino®, I headed to my local Starbucks and placed my order.

If you want to try ordering this drink, ask for—a venti vanilla bean Frappuccino® with 3 pumps of raspberry syrup and 2 scoops of berries. If ordering a tall or grande size, ask for only 2 pumps or raspberry syrup and 1 scoop of berries.

The verdict? This drink was absolutely scrumptious! The sugary sweetness of the vanilla bean powder mixed with the tartness of the berries delivered a sweet and fruity beverage, perfect for a hot day or an afternoon pick-me-up. Give it a try—you won’t be disappointed!

maxresdefault

If you haven’t already heard, the newest generation of Tamagotchi virtual pet toys have officially arrived. Remember as a child, struggling to keep your little friend happy and fed while simultaneously flushing its poops? Well, they’re back and better than ever!

Introducing the “Tamagotchi On” which comes in four colours―pink fairy, blue fairy, green magic and purple magic. The fairy and magic versions are different in the sense that they come equipped with their own characters and theme parks!

So, if you didn’t know this already, welcome to my blog―I’m obsessed with the colour pink. So if you were wondering, I picked up a pink fairy “Tamagotchi On” at EB Games. Now, they weren’t supposed to be officially released until July 28th 2019 across North America, but for some reason they were released early Canada-wide, on July 10th. (Score!) I was able to purchase mine at the beginning of July.

A super cool feature for this Tamagotchi is the newly released “Tamagotchi On” app on the App Store and Google Play. For the first time ever, you can send your virtual pet onto your device to play games, win prizes, make friends, and get married to another Tamagotchi from anywhere in the world directly from your mobile device! How awesome is that?!

On my YouTube channel, I posted a video of me unboxing my new Tamagotchi and discovering all the fun features it has! Please check it out, click the like button, leave a comment and subscribe for more videos!

Nicki Minaj Perfume Review

IMG_0395 (1)

Nicki Minaj is one of my favorite celebrities, so I wanted to give all her perfumes a try. Currently she has seven released (I was unable to find Queen and Minajesty Exotic in stores) but I am going to review her five most popular ones─Pink Friday, Minajesty, The Pink Print, Onika, and Trini Girl.

#1: Pink Friday

Pink Friday Nicki Minaj for womenNicki Minaj’s debut scent is called Pink Friday which was released in 2012, named after her debut album Pink Friday which was released in 2010. Her first signature scent has a uniquely shaped bottle, with her face and pink wig as the cap and glass body as the bottle. Special editions of the perfume even include a gold chain around the rapper’s neck with her name on it. Out of all of her fragrances, I would say that this one is definitely the most girly out of the scents. It’s playful, sweet, and perfect for a young woman or teenager as a first perfume. My favorite place to wear this scent is out with friends. It’s definitely a scent for the daytime and perfect for springtime. Click here to purchase → https://www.fragrantica.com/perfume/Nicki-Minaj/Pink-Friday-16078.html

#2: Minajesty

Minajesty Nicki Minaj for womenNicki Minaj’s second released scent was titled Minajesty and came out in 2013, a year after her first perfume. The bottle again features her face and pink wig for the cap and diamond lingerie clad body as the bottle. Although the scent has similar fruity and sweet notes like Pink Friday, this scent is a lot sultrier and is more spicy. My favorite place to wear this scent is out on dates. The scent is definitely a nighttime scent and is perfect for the summertime. Click here to purchase → https://www.fragrantica.com/perfume/Nicki-Minaj/Minajesty-18900.html

#3: Onika

Onika Nicki Minaj for womenNicki Minaj’s third perfume was released in 2014 and is called Onika, named after herself (that’s right, her real name is not Nicki). The bottle features a more natural side of Nicki, with her face and black hair as the cap and a sexy black corset as the bottle. The scent is very feminine and mature. My favorite place to wear this is at work or at professional events. The scent is filled with notes of floral and citrus─perfect for day or night and works good for all seasons. Click here to purchase → https://www.fragrantica.com/perfume/Nicki-Minaj/Onika-25913.html

#4: The Pink Print 

The Pinkprint Nicki Minaj for womenNicki Minaj’s fourth perfume was released in 2015 to promote her studio album The Pink Print which was released in 2014. The bottle features her face with purple lipstick and a pink wig as the cap, and the same purple fingerprint design as her album cover features as the bottle. The scent is extremely fresh smelling and reminds me of the scent of shampoo after a shower. It’s a very clean, crisp, and fresh smell. If you want to smell clean, this is definitely the scent for you. The scent is a daytime perfume and is perfect for any season. Click here to purchase → https://www.fragrantica.com/perfume/Nicki-Minaj/The-Pinkprint-31669.html

#5: Trini Girl

Trini Girl Nicki Minaj for womenThe last Nicki Minaj fragrance we’ll be reviewing is her Trini Girl perfume, released in 2016. Named after her birthplace of Trinidad, and has notes similar to Onika but with a spicier twist, with notes of blood orange and litchi. The scent was produced by beauty mogul Elizabeth Arden. The bottle features her face and long black hair as the cap and pink bodied bottle. The scent is perfect for all occasions, no matter time of day or season. Click here to purchase → https://www.fragrantica.com/perfume/Nicki-Minaj/Trini-Girl-41709.html

Now, I will say that although all the fragrances are wonderfully scented and perfect for women of all ages, the scents are weaker than other perfumes and do not last very long. However, they are cheaper than other celebrity endorsed fragrances on the market which makes up for it. I have been collecting her perfumes since Pink Friday was released in 2012, and I can’t wait to see the other fragrances that Nicki Minaj has up her sleeve!

Which one is your favorite? Which one are you excited to try?

Too Faced “Peach Perfect” Review

tooface

Good evening bloggers and happy springtime! Finally, the sun is shining and the weather is starting to warm up. Goodbye coats and scarfs, and hello to t-shirts and sunglasses! 

Recently, I decided to try the Peach Perfect line by the brand Too Faced. Too Faced happens to be one of my most favorite cosmetic lines on the planet, so I was super excited to try this one. All of the items are peach scented. Just note, I did not have the chance to try out all of the products from this collection. Right after these were purchased, they released their Peach Perfect lip balms and lip scrubs, as well as eye shadows and lipsticks. However, I was able to grab their foundation, setting powder, primer, setting spray, and one of the eye shadow palettes.

Without further ado, let’s get started! 

Primer

insta-editor.com

The Primed & Peachy primer was awesome. Not only does it smell terrific with its peaches-and-cream-esque scent, but it was so smooth and easy to apply. The cooling matte formula was not heavy, but a light formula, making it feel light and cool on your skin, leaving your skin and pores free to breathe. I found my makeup lasted a lot longer while wearing this, and gave it a matte appearance. 

Purchase here: https://www.sephora.com/ca/en/product/primed-peachy-cooling-matte-perfecting-primer-peaches-cream-collection-P422851?icid2=products%20grid:p422851:product

Foundation

insta-editor.com (1)

The foundation I purchased was in the shade Light Beige. Now, although overall I thought that this was indeed a good product, there were some cons as well. It says transfer resistant on the package, but I found that when wearing it, it would come off easily onto clothes, even with the application of a setting powder and spray. I also prefer a more full coverage foundation, so although this made my skin look fantastic, it did not cover as much as I generally would like. The pros? Like all of the other products, the sweet, peachy smell is wonderful. Most foundations are not scented, so it is a refreshing change to be wearing such a sweet perfume on your face. Not only did this product give me a great complexion and tone, but the product itself is very bright looking and gave my skin a radiant effect.

Purchase here: https://www.sephora.com/ca/en/product/peach-perfect-comfort-moisture-matte-foundation-peaches-cream-collection-P422601?icid2=products%20grid:p422601:product

Setting Powder

insta-editor.com (2)

Similar to the foundation, the setting powder gives a wonderfully radiant, glamorous, and glowing look. It also mattifyed any shiny or oily skin that the foundation did not cover. The powder is light and airy, so it does not weigh your makeup down. 

Purchase here: https://www.sephora.com/ca/en/product/peach-perfect-mattifying-setting-powder-peaches-cream-collection-P422448?icid2=products%20grid:p422448:product

Setting Spray

insta-editor.com (3)

After your whole look is complete, make sure to finish it off with the Peach Mist mattifying setting spray. This spray reminded me of another setting spray by Too Faced which is the Hangover setting spray. Both provide a smooth finish and a long lasting effect. With this product, my makeup would last pretty much throughout the day without creasing or wiping off. I wouldn’t say it’s the best setting spray that I have ever used, but I definitely still liked it!

Purchase here: https://www.sephora.com/ca/en/product/peach-mist-mattifying-setting-spray-peaches-cream-collection-P422850?icid2=products%20grid:p422850:product

Eye Shadow Palette 

insta-editor.com (4)

Lastly, I tried the White Peach multi-dimensional eye shadow palette. If you were wondering—yes, this too is peach scented. The shades range from matte to sparkly, and everything in between. This palette is the lighter version so all of the shades are on the softer end of the spectrum. The pigmentation is pretty good but not perfect, as it fades. Thought that is understandable as the colors are not as vibrant as other palettes. I still love this palette, especially Peach Ice, which is perfect to put on your waterline and in the corners of your eyelids to really make your eyes pop.

Bonus

insta-editor.com (5)

As a special bonus, I also wanted to share my absolutely favorite mascara of all time that will make any look complete. Yup, it’s the Better Than Sex mascara by none other than Too Faced! After trying this mascara a couple years back, I will never go to any other mascara again. It thickens, lengthens, and adds so much volume without the hassle of falsies. Plus, how cute is this limited edition packaging for their twentieth birthday?!

ʕ•ᴥ•ʔ SugarBearHair Limited Edition Backpack Gift Set Review ʕ•ᴥ•ʔ

SugarBearHair has released a limited edition backpack gift set on their website! After seeing how adorable the gift set was, I had to order one for myself—especially since I have wanted to try these hair vitamins for years now. 

sugarbear

The gift set includes:

1 Limited Edition SugarBearHair Backpack  

3 Month Supply of SugarBearHair Hair Vitamins 

3 Month Supply of SugarBearHair Women’s Multi Vitamins

1 Sample Size of SugarBearHair Women’s Multi Vitamins

1 SugarBearHair Cruelty-Free Natural Wood Hair Brush 

1 SugarBearHair Fluffy “SugarBear Face” Cosmetic Bag 

1 SugarBearHair Luxury Shower Cap 

1 SugarBearHair Air Freshener 

1 SugarBearHair Headband 

1 SugarBearHair Keychain

1 SugarBearHair Nail File 

1 SugarBearHair Hair Tie

1 SugarBearHair Sticker

The gifts were so cute and made of such good quality. I am so excited to use the air freshener in my car, and I already put the key chain on my car keys! But of course, the most talked about and sought after product on this list is indeed the hair vitamins themself. I have heard about them for years, all across multiple social media platforms and through celebrities who have heavily endorsed this product. Most reviews from both men and women claim it did wonders for their hair and nails, leaving them with thicker, shinier, and longer hair. The women’s multi vitamins are a new addition to SugarBearHair’s line, with lots of vitamins made to help benefit women with a healthier lifestyle. 

sugarbearvits

Aside from them smelling great and tasting absolutely delicious unlike other branded hair and multi vitamin supplements, they are full of great ingredients to help you reach your goals. The hair vitamin’s main ingredients consist of biotin, folic acid, and vitamin C, and the multi vitamins contain omega 3, vitamin C, vitamin D₂  and vitamin B₁₂.

I just started taking the vitamins last week, and love their taste and am looking forward to testing their effectiveness. I will do three different blog posts where I look at my hair’s progress: one for after one month of being on the vitamins, one for after two months of being on the vitamins, and finally, one at the end of the three month period. I’m excited to see how well they work!

To purchase this gift set for yourself or for a friend, click here. You can get it on SugarBearHair’s official website for $179.99 USD. Since this product is limited edition, once it is sold out it won’t be restocked!

Summer & Fall Lush Haul 2017

Good evening bloggers! I’ve decided to share with you some of my fave Lush products from mid to late 2017. Of course I will be heading soon to Lush to stock up on the wintertime and Christmas goodies, but for now, here’s some of my favorites that I’ve picked up from August to October 2017.

1.) Rainbow Bath Oils

20170317_00392520170317_003943

There are so many reasons that I love these little bath tablets. Not only do they smell fabulous, but there are so many uses for them, and they support a great cause. You can use them as a shampoo, a body wash, or as a bubble bath. Since there are seven of them, they last quite a long time, and each one comes with a unique fruity fragrance. Plus, each one sold donates some of the profits to Japanese children who are living in unsafe conditions and unable to play outside. So next time you’re at Lush, go grab yourself a tube of these fun rainbow multipurpose bath oil tablets and make a difference in the world while you’re at it. Here’s the link to purchase: https://www.lush.ca/en/bath/fun/rainbow/06581.html

2.) August 2017 Haul

20170817_234827

This haul included many different items, including:

  • Pink Bath Bomb
  • Blue Skies and Fluffy White Clouds Bubble Bar
  • Yellow Submarine Bath Bomb
  • Karma Bubble Bar
  • Scrubee Body Scrub Bar
  • Chocolate Lip Scrub
  • Bling Toothpaste Tablets 

I love Lush because not only are their products all natural and against animal testing, but they are also incredibly unique. Rather than the waste toothpaste can create, their toothy tablets are a great alternative to standard toothpaste. The chocolate lip scrub works wonders, and all of the bath products are fantastically fragrant and make your skin feel soft and smooth after a nice, relaxing bath. All of these products get a thumbs up from me. 

3.) September 2017 Haul

20170911_215549

My September haul consisted of lots of products I have never tried before, including their masks for hands and salted coconut body scrub. The products I tried are as follows:

  • Rosy Cheeks Face Mask
  • Golden Handshake Hand Mask
  • Salted Coconut Body Scrub
  • Cheer Up Buttercup Bath Bomb 
  • Rocket Science Bath Bomb 
  • Yuzu and Cocoa Bubble Bar

Unlike other face masks, the Rosy Cheeks mask actually made my skin tingle. It felt so nice and made my skin look so bright and refreshed afterwards. Now, I haven’t actually gotten around to using the hand mask yet, but the salted coconut scrub is the ultimate scrub for your skin, especially dry hands. And, as always, the bath products were amazing. I loved the Yuzu and Cocoa bubble bar; it had such an amazing chocolaty yet sweet fragrance. 

4.) October 2017 Haul

20171005_231538

How cute are these? By far, the holiday ones (Halloween and Christmas) are the most clever designs. These cuties are:

  • Monster’s Ball Bath Bomb
  • Pumpkin Bath Bomb
  • Bewitched Bubble Bar
  • Ectoplasm Bath Bomb 

You may still be able to find these at Lush, but probably not. All the Christmas stock has taken over; but hey, you might get lucky. These Halloween bath bombs are scary good, with sweet fragrances and cute designs. 

That’s all for this haul. Stay tuned soon for my haul of winter and Christmas 2017 Lush goodies! 

Until next time,

Frappuccino With Cake Pop Blended In: REVIEW

Hey everyone! I hope you have all had an amazing summer. I haven’t made a single post since April and it’s because a lot of crazy stuff has been happening in my life lately. (Which some of you may know about if you follow my YouTube channel). Some bad, some good. Anyway, enough about that, that will be in another blog post!

So anyway, you guys know I am obsessed with all things Starbucks, right? I’ve always loved frappuccinos and cake pops and always hear about cake pops being blended in to the frappuccino to create some kind of super drink yet I’ve never tried it myself. But this summer I tried a lot of different things at Starbucks, including, (but not limited to), Affogato style shots, bananas blended in, espresso shots, different powders, and different syrups. Therefore I decided tonight would be a good night to try a cake pop blended in to my favourite drink.

Now normally I do get the venti size (because go big or go home), but since I’m not made of money and cake pops are $2.00 I decided to go with a grande mocha frappuccino and get a chocolate cake pop blended in. Total = $7.80 

But totally worth it.

I know a lot of people prefer vanilla bean frappuccinos with a birthday cake pop blended in, but me being a lover of all things chocolate and coffee decided to get the mocha frappuccino and blend in a chocolate cake pop. I am so happy I did, it was delicious. However if you do go for a venti size, it will take 2 to 3 cake pops to get the same effect as a grande with 1 cake pop did.

Similar to java chips but a lot better in my opinion. There’s no cake chunks as it is thoroughly blended but every last sip is loaded with delicious, cake flavour, and once in a while you get the odd cake bit to enjoy. My final verdict is: You need to get out there and try one.

Product Review: Gummy Bear Soap

Today is a product review: gummy bear soap from Vat19! My boyfriend bought this for me for my birthday a couple of years ago, and since my pile of soaps and perfumes is so large, I didn’t even start to use this until a month ago. Even though the expiry date clearly reads May 2015 . . . let’s just pretend we don’t see that.

The flavour that I got is “Piña Colada“. It smells good, but not as good as I thought it would smell. I pictured it kinda being like in just a huge bowl filled to the rim with sweet gummy bears, but it’s more like a hidden scent that you really got to put your mind to if you want to get a whiff of it. Seriously, it’s that hard. Now, my boyfriend kindly pointed out that it could be because of the expiry date, and perhaps if I used it sooner the scent would be more prominent. 

As you can read down below, the Soap Facts state that this soap will last 100 hand washes, or 25 showers. I feel like I used it more than 25 times however, so maybe the soap lasts longer than expected! The soap is a good size and obviously an adorable shape. The packaging is perfectly awesome, and if you love gummy bears and piña coladas, then this is the soap for you!
