In case you haven't signed up yet or are not familar Jewelmint is a Jewelry service where you, like most services, create a style profile based on your likes and interests, and Jewelmint will pick out designs you might like. And if you don't like things they picked for you, you can still shop the whole collection not just out of your boutique or choose not to buy anything.  All the jewlery is $29.99 and new members/new purchases receive 20% off with code JMNEW20. Here are is another code you can use: This code FBAR9FG will get you 9$ off. Be sure to look around for coupon codes, when I bought mine I had a 50% code :)


Here is a picture from the website of what it looks like. 


I absolutley adore this bracelet, I am huge on cuffs and thick bracelets and so I had to have it. It looks good with anything especially black! It gives me more of a rocker-ish feel but still a very girly look. I wore it to the Blake Shelton concert, it went great with my little country outfit and got so many compliments on it! I definitely will be buying again in the future. There are some really great pieces of jewelry and so far from my first purchase I am pleased with the quality. 

Here are some pictures below so you can get a good look at it!

The Body Bartender: Review and Swatches


Hey dolls! I actually was going to have this review up last weekend, but I wanted to test it out at Disneyland where I would see it work the most! First I received these two products from The Body Bartender. These cute pinup packaging lotions are more than just good looks. 

The Tattoo Protection is a high end sunscreen with SPF 30 made to keep your tattoos from looking dull. Although it says "Tattoo Protection" it can be used for your normal sunscreen which is what I did. Using this all day the first day in Disneyland for my son it worked well, he already has a tan base, but it protected him from getting burnt. And 8 hours in the direct sun only applying it twice, I'd say that's pretty good!

The next one is a lotion called Peep Show this all over body firming lotion leaves your skin nourished and smooth. It isn't greasy, too thick or thin. I have been using this since the day I got it! The smell is amazing and I get so many questions because of its packaging! I also have been using this on my shoulders since I am peeling so bad right now! This lotion has natural extracts and caffeine and essence of Guava!

All The Body Bartender products are without
Parabens
Sulfates
Petrochemicals
Triclosan
Synthetic Dyes



*I received this product in exchange for my personal and honest review*

PMD: Personal Microderm Review and Pictures



I was given the opportunity to review the PMD (Personal Microderm.) I have been using this once a week for about 6-7 weeks. I mainly have been using it on my forehead because that's where I have most of my fine lines and wrinkles. 

There are 2 different size discs one for the body and the smaller one for your face. There are two colors as well, the blue is for sensitive groups while the green is a little more abrasive. I use the bigger green disc for my forehead. You want to make sure you keep the PMD moving never stop or you will irritate that area and may cause scabbing. Always pull away from face and stay clear of your eye area, since it is more sensitive. Try not to go over one area more than two times you don't want to irritate your skin. I also use the PMD in combination with my products such as: Serums and Moisturizers which then they are 20x more effective! Visuals are always better so I will link the videos page on the PMD website so you can watch the PMD in action. 

The PMD  retails for 179.00 and comes with everything you see below (including the cord). Replacement discs are only $14.95 for a pack of 6. Also for a step up in your routine you can buy the red discs which are more abrasive then the green discs. This really is a great buy and will save you a lot of money down the road. This cute little handheld does the job and gives you great results! I love my PMD!

Check out my pictures below for before and after!











The left picture is right after using the PMD. You can see all my fine lines and wrinkles on my forehead.
The right picture is after 7 weeks of using the PMD and already my lines are diminishing significantly. 
I am not wearing any makeup in either of these pictures.

BB Cream Series: Marcelle BB Cream Review and Swatches


Yay! This is the first of my BB Cream series. I will review and swatch every BB Cream I can get my hands on! First one up is the Marcelle BB Cream which I though a lot of my Canadian readers would enjoy since this is the first BB Cream formulated for Canadian women!  What they say:

The 8 in 1 multi-benefits BB Cream that does it all for you, instantly! Your ultimate skin care enhancer for all ages and skin types, this multi-purpose skin care cream is more than a tinted moisturizer or simple make-up base. It perfects the skin to reveal a more even epidermis and well-hydrated, flawless complexion, all in one. Use it alone as a tinted moisturizer; over your moisturizer to unify your complexion and reduce the appearance of blemishes, or apply as a make-up base under foundation for total coverage and improved stay-on power. BB Cream is offered in two shades and is suitable for a wide variety of complexions thanks to its self-adjusting pigments that transform and adapt to skin tone. Hypo-allergenic and perfume free. Suitable for all ages and skin types.
What I say: 
My first impression was I like the packaging it is very sleek looking. I definitely agree that is more than a tinted moisturizer I get about medium coverage with this BB. I think this one is a great base under your normal foundation, it isn't cakey or heavy and goes on flawless. This BB Cream has a little bit of a yellow undertone and would be great for all skin types. This 1.5 OZ sqeezy tube has a pump for application which is great for keeping product sanitary.  It is perfume free which a lot of people like however, that is one thing I would change. When something is that close to my face I like it to smell good haha! It doesn't smell horrible, but definitely a plain smell. Overall I would give this about a 4 out of 5. 

This retails for $22.95 and you can get it at http://shop.marcelle.com/

They do look huge and it sucks you can't see what they really look like on a real girls feet! But I can say from my previous purchases that they are not gigantor looking! They do run a tad small but that could just be me too.


Below are a couple heels from the Latest Shapes collection, Iron Fist, and the new sunglasses.

Folica: HAI Clipless Curling Rod Review $25 off



Product view




Yay! Another hair tool! I recently had the opportunity to try Folica's  and was picked to review a tool from their site. The product I got was the HAI Clipless Curling Rod since I am into the whole clipless curling wand look. This curling wand retails for $129.95 on their site with free shipping.

Features:


  • Ceramic rod: 1/2 inch to 1 1/inch wide x 8 1/2 inch long
  • Built in stand
  • Digitally controlled temperature with LED screen
  • Adjustable temperature from 170F to 390F
  • Includes thermal protective case
  • 9 foot swivel cord 


Overall I really like the quality of this wand. Although the physical features
look a little different, it works well and gets the job done. One thing I really like is the thermal case it comes with. I have small children so it is always nice when you can double protect them from the irons when they are cooling down. I also like the adjustable temp setting. I have another curling wand and it doesn't have a setting. One thing I do find a little annoying is the size of the wand, since the size is so drastic my hair tends to slide to the top when I am curling. It takes quite a bit of effort to keep it at the bottom of the wand. But all in all it's a great tool that gives you a variety of different curls and looks.

$25 off $75 or more plus free 2 day shipping! Look below for a coupon code


I like this grip under the handle. Gives you a good old on the wand.






I like that tousled beach hair look so I did a variety of curls. 






These bottom ones are  little tighter. But you can see all the different looks you can create.
