Wet n Wild Distressed to Impress Nails

Happy Monday loves!

I hope you all had a great weekend, I think it went by too quick!!

Easter is next week, but I still wanted to change things up a bit and go for something darker on my nails. About a few years ago (2014 to be exact), Wet n Wild came out with a limited edition Matte edition. It came out with 6 colors and I wanted to show you guys the Distressed to Impress.

It comes out a dusty brown gray with a creme matte finish. I really like this one as I only had to use 2 coats.Ā 

OPI Breakfast at Tiffany’s On the Go Kit

Happy Monday loves!

Have you ever went into a store knowing you were just going to browse and half an hour later, you buy more than you expected?! TJ Maxx is that store for me. I always have to take a look at their beauty products. This day was no different! I came across an OPI nail kit and once I realized it was Aubrey Hepburn, I knew I needed to buy it! Not only do I think Aubrey Hepburn was a great role model but Breakfast at Tiffany’s is probably one of my favorite movies.

OPI Breakfast at Tiffany’s On the Go Kit came with a few products which intrigued me to say the least.

The kit included the Nail Envy Original which is a nail strengthener, an Avoplex Cuticle Oil-to-go, Avoplex High Intensity Hand & Nail Cream and 3 Wipe Off! Acetone-Free Lacquer Remover Wipes.

I can’t wait to try Nail Envy because for some reason my nails have been quicker to chip than usual. šŸ˜¦

FYI, this deal only cost me $9.99, which isn’t bad considering that OPI is somewhat an expensive brand!

 

Chef’d Spoon Meal Plan Review

Happy Friday loves!

Just by signing up for Chef’d emails, they sent me a Spoon University Meal Plan box. Let me tell you, I didn’t expect the box to be that big!! They sent a variety of snack and beverage products.

It’s such a great idea for college students who are away from home, you can basically just get your meals that you choose, especially for those that spend so much money on fast food. *We’ve all been there!*

Meal types: beef, pork, poultry, vegetarian, shellfish, fish and lamb! Then based on your meal options, they bring you a few different recipes to choose from. After that they also have a few other box options such as the Grab n’ Go, Snacks and/or Fruit.

With every meal kit, you’ll receive: 2 pre-portioned fresh meals, 6 Grab n’ Go Meals, 10 beverages & snacks and 5 assorted fruits.

Here’s what I got in my Snacks box!

Beverages: SmartWater, SmartWater Sparkling, Zico Coconut Water and Coca Cola Life with Cane Sugar and Stevia

beverages

Granola and Oatmeal: Quaker Real Medley Apple Walnut Flavor Oatmeal and Purely Elizabeth Cranberry Pecan Granola and Puffs Cereal

Popcorn and Crunches: Skinny POP Popcorn, Dark Chocolate Harry & David Moose Munch Gourmet Popcorn and Chia Crunch Coconut. 2 doses of popcorn?! I’m definitely not complaining. Chia Crunch Coconut is freeze dried coconut slices with chia seeds.

Quest Beyond Cereal Protein Bars in Cinnamon Roll, Waffle and Chocolate flavors. These would work best after a workout!

Chocolate: 2 Nib Mor all natural superfruit cacao bits “Daily Dose of Dark” and Coffee Thins, the Edible Coffee Treat Espresso. So I can actually have chocolate infused with coffee?! That sounds like heaven to me!

Fruits: Sun Maid Sour Strawberry Golden Raisins and That’s It Zesty, 2 apples + cinnamon. I grew up on Sun Maid Raisins so finding another flavor brings back so many memories! As for the fruit bar, I’ve tried it at Starbucks before and its a simple fruit bar.

Protein Bars: Clif Bar Sierra Trail Mix which has peanuts, chocolate and raisins. RXBar, a 12gram Protein bar with 3 egg whites, 4 almonds, 6 cashews, 2 dates and no B.S.

SinfulColors Kiss Goodnight + Gold n’ Roses

Happy Wednesday loves!

Hope you’re all having a great week.

I wanted to combine 2 nail polishes together and go figure, they’re both Sinful Colors. I used Sinful Colors Kandee Johnson “Kiss Goodnight” as the base and for the top, I used Sinful Colors “Gold n’ Roses”.

When I first saw Gold n’ Roses, I thought it would be a beautiful metallic rose gold color but when I first applied it, it was really sheer. I figured I would use it as a glitter or accent polish. I love how the 2 colors give off that pretty light blue with rose gold glitter.

What do you guys think?!

 

Covergirl “195 Nemesis”

Happy Tuesday loves!

Hope you all had a great week, sorry I’ve been a bit MIA, work has been a bit hectic. I wanted to change things a bit, and so I’m posting a Mani Tuesday! :p

I was getting tired of wearing pastel spring colors and wanted something dark again. I opted for the Covergirl 195 Nemesis. It’s a dark wine red, and had to apply 2 coats of it to get it this dark.

2017 Crave Expo

Happy Thursday loves!

I was lucky enough to get 2 VIP tickets for the Crave Expo this past Sunday February 19, 2017. Crave Expo used to be more on the industry event but for the first time this year, they opened it to the public! Even in the gloomy rainy weather, it was a great outcome!

They had a variety of foods, snacks, sweets and beverages on site. For the VIP people who came at 11am till 1pm were able to get free snack samples of most vendors.

Here are some honorable mentions that I loved!!

Norigami: They had samples of their sushi taco..Yes you heard right?! They used crispy lightly seasoned seaweed for the taco shell and then added spicy tuna and some sauces on top.

nirogami-sushi-taco

Street Churros: They gave out full size churros which had a perfect combination of sugar and cinammon. I sure do love anything with cinnamon!

Mad Dumplings: They have a variety of dumplings and were giving out the pork belly longanisa dumpling which has sweet Filipino inspired sausage, and topped with a bit of pork belly and a slice of jalapeno.

Belly Bombz: I first saw this at Foodie Con and missed it the next day. I was so disappointed! However, we ran into them again at Crave Expo and this time I had to sample something! They were giving out their firecracker boneless chicken strips with a side of coleslaw. Firecracker was sweet and spicy traditional Korean fried chicken. I was so glad to have known that they now have a brick and mortar restaurant in Artesia, California!

Burger Monster: The line for this one was actually pretty long. They had 5 different samples available and we ended up getting the Satyre slider. It has caramelized onions, goat cheese and fig jam. It’s pretty good since the goat cheese and fig jam balances the flavor out.

burger-monster

The Halal Guys: A Chipotle style Middle Eastern restaurant. They opened their first hot dog stand in New York City in 1990! They were giving out sample sizes of their bowls which had chicken, gyro, rice and 2 different sauces: their famous hot sauce and white sauce. They just opened up a store in Cerritos and Long Beach.

Califa Farms: They were giving out samples of their lemonades, iced coffees and the nitro cold brews. I was surprised that they were giving out full sizes of the nitro cold brews. I loved the Nitro Cold Brew in Mocha.

As I was leaving the event, I saw T-Rex and I was so upset that I wasn’t able to take a picture with him! Stella Rosa was there as well as a few more wine and alcohol booths.

I can’t wait till the next Crave Expo and will be better prepared!
