Topbox Review: July – September 2014

So… the “nail polish” Topboxes continued over the summer and I will have to say that the summer nail polishes were much more to my liking. In fact, most of the summer Topboxes made me a happy camper. One thing that added to my happiness is the option to receive your Topbox in an organza bag instead of the bulky tubes. I think this is a much more environmentally friendly method of shipping the Topboxes and I am thrilled they are offering this as an alternative to the tubes.

Topbox Review: April – June 2014

The April to June Topboxes are what I would like to call the “nail polish editions” since I received a nail polish in each one of these boxes. While I love nail polish very much, I do occasionally wish I could customize my Topbox a little bit so they know which colours look absolutely hideous on me and to not include those shades.

Topbox Review: December 2013 – March 2014

Well… if there was a prize for best (worst?) procrastinating blogger, I am pretty sure that would be me. I am working through a backlog of posts and trying to catch up on everything starting with my Topboxes over the past year *insert shame face here*. But let’s pretend this never happened and just move on to my boxes from December to March.

Rocky Mountain Wine & Food Festival + Giveaway – Third Time’s the Charm Edition

It’s that time of year again… The Edmonton Rocky Mountain Wine & Food Festival is back the 13th year on Oct 24-25! I have had fantastic experiences the last two years that I have attended the event. I always look forward to trying some of the wonderful food and wine the city (and beyond) has to offer.

For those that are not familiar the Edmonton Rocky Mountain Wine & Food Festival, it takes place in Halls A-C of the Shaw Conference Centre and is food and beverage filled extravaganza. The Grand Tasting Hall will be serving up a collection of wines from around the globe, premium spirits, single malt and blended scotches, port, specialty liqueurs, and import and micro-brewed beer to go with tasty food from local restaurants, hotels and food purveyors. There will definitely be something for everyone and if you want to see what you’re in store for, check out the lists of wineries participating, other adult beverages and food samples! In addition to the food and wine, the Dairy Farmers of Canada will be hosting free cheese seminars (first come first serve) – I missed participating last year but it looked like a lot of fun!

Broadway imPress Press On Nails Review

Yikes! It has been a long time since my last post, but life has been absolutely crazy these past few months. I remain hopeful that I will be back on a semi-regular schedule soon. For now though, let’s talk about Broadway Nails and their new imPRESS press on manicures. I have never used press on nails before in my life as I’ve always been a little intimidated by them and didn’t believe that they would live up to my full expectations, so this was a new experience to me. To be honest, I probably wouldn’t have tried the Broadway imPRESS manicures either if Influenster didn’t send me a few to try.
