JustFab.ca Review

Hello Ladies!

It's Friday's Eve and that means the weekend is at our finger tips. Over here in Canada we had a bit of a dribble of snow over night. Which is blah! Anyways, I have recently tried my hand at online shopping and thought I'd share my experience with you guys reading this.

So, on Monday night I was channel surfing and came across the commercial for JustFab.ca claiming that all the shoes on the website (Including Boots, flats, platform-any shoe really) was priced at $39.95.Another reason I was compelled to give it a try is that I have quite large feet, I'm a size 11 for heck's sake! I thought that if shoes were that cheap and they had a size 11 then it would be worth giving a try. So, I logged on!

The Experience
When you log on, the site is super trendy and fun looking. I am a sucker for advertising so this made the site way more desirable. When you log on, it doesn't allow you to search through the shoes unless you create a profile, which at first annoyed me, but later made sense. To create a profile, it asks you a few style preference questions which help to narrow down the styles you may be interested in. Almost immediately after I created my profile, I received an email from them saying that if I ordered my first pair of shoes today, i would get them for half price. Ofcourse, this appealed to me. And I ordered.

The Ordering Process
The ordering process is pretty clean and simple. Name, Mailing address, credit card info...yada yada yada!

Now comes the waiting game
After ordering, the expected deliverydate was about 10 days after my order was processed. They gave me a tracking number and just for fun I decided to enter the number last night and boom! They came today. Only 2 days after my order was processed! i did not pay extra for rush delievery, so I was naturally impressed.

The goods
So my shoes came! And here they are:

 Beautiful right? Since my shoe size flucuates I was quite nervouse over whether they would fit or not. I was pleasently suprised as they fit quite well but they do seem a bit snug. Nothing that alittle stretching can't fix.

Yes, although I do madly love my shoes, there is a con to this whole process. For some reason I felt like I should read up reviews regarding the company. You know, to see it people liked or disliked it and what not. Not sure why I decided to do this after creating a profile and ordering but that it beside the point. Alot of the complaint I saw were regarding people being charged on a monthly basis. People were saying they thought it was a one shot deal but it's a memebership. This kind of caught me off gaurd, because I honestly didnt want to purchase a pair of shoes a month! That's alot of shoes! If I was rich then I may consider it but seriously....I don't think I can handle to spend over $40 on a pair of shoes each and every month. I honestly am not a 'fine print' reader so I didn't bother. If it wasn't for reading reviews, I would have never know and I would have been charged every month for it. Now, on the website, they give you the fresh and easy option to cancel your account. NOT! Once you hit cancel, it advises you to call customer service to cancel your account. My guess is, to try and guilt you into keeping it. I called today but I was put on a solid hold and waited forever. In the meantime, I used their live chat, which also had a wait time. The girl on the other end said that in order to cancel I did infact need to call in. I decided to wait until later to call and cancel. I will update this when I do finally get through. Now, that being said, the website does give you the option to skip the month. Therefore, you aren't obligated to buy and will not be charged.

Will I purchase again?
Like I said, if I could afford to purchase a pair of shoes every month, I totally would keep my membership. I do really like the selection of shoes and I like that they carry a varity of sizes from the smallest to largest (lthough they do not carry size 12). The website is easy to navigate and is pleasing to the eye. The price is right and you get your shoes in a matter of days. It also seems that they have a very good return policy. I also like that you get your first pair for 50% off. This made me very happy. Minus a few annoyances, I really do like the idea of this site. If you want to give it a whirl, I suggest really reading up on it to make sure it's the right choice for you.

Hope this review helps you out. I want to know, did you have a good experience with JustFab.ca? A bad one? The floor is yours, take it away!

Covergirl Stay Fabulous 3-in-1 Foundation Review

Woof! That was a mouthful! But yes, I shall quickly review the newest foundation to the covergirl line. I havent really been consistent with a foundation in a while but this one may have switched me. Let me explain...


This product comes in a 1 oz. glass bottle that sports a teal blue pump. Which makes it extra intriguing. I am defiantly a sucker for some good packaging and this defiantly caught my eye.

The Product:

I usually just pump a sufficient amount of product on my hand and then dip my buffing brush into it. The product isn't very thick but it isn't super runny either. It's is just right! Said the Mama bear. ha ha! I love the way that the product spreads and blends easily. Although I did find that I had to go in with a sponge in certain areas that seem to collect more product. That my friends...is my only complaint! :D


This product claims to be a primer, concealer and foundation all in one, hence the 3-in-1 part. And man oh man! Does it ever live up to it's name...This stuff covered everything. I have quite a bit of acne scarring and zits in general and this stuff really does live up to everything it says it will. I only have to use a little concealer under my eyes and I'm good to go. There are times that I need to cover a bit more so I just add more product where I need it. This also dries matte so there is almost no need for powder .

Would I buy this again? Heck yes! It is amazing and I say to give it a try!

Sidenote: Aztec Nails

Hey Beauties.

We are snowed in here in Toronto and the car is barricaded in snow. This means I have no where to go and I have to stay home and entertain myself. I decided to take advantage of the free time and gave myself a pedicure since I was in great need of one. Think what you will of the condition of my feet. Not pleasant, let me tell you. Anyways, since i was removing my toenail polish without gloves on, the acetone ruined my manicure. So, I decided to get artsy and give Aztec nails a run. If you don't know what Aztec nails are, you will in a minute. Another name for Aztec nails are tribal nails. Basically, it's a nail with a white base and different color strips and then fun abstract designs between the lines. Sounds a little complicated, I know. But here is a pic of my nails to give you an idea.

They are far from perfect but I have been wanting to give it a try for a while. Don't judge ha ha! Anyways, that it for me on this snowy Friday. Don't forget to check out my Youtube channel to see what's new and exciting. I post reviews, hauls and more. Check it out! Here is a link to my latest video.
Anyways, Thanks for reading/watching lovelies!

Nail Envy Review

Hey Beauties!

I am sorry that I have been MIA for a bit and if you watch my newest Youtube video you will get a little insight as to why. I will post a link at the end so you guys can watch it. But on to bigger and better things. I have for you all a review of OPI Nail Envy. Now, I know that this isn't a new product on the market but it is certainly new to me. What made me decide to give it a whirl is a post I saw on Pinterest showing a picture of the nail with and without Nail Envy. The first picture is the nail that is flat and easily broken, the second is a picture of the nail with a strong curve which makes it harder to break. This stamped an impression in my head.

So, this product is alittle on the pricier side for a nail strengthener. It retails for about $15 at local beauty supply stores. It has a milky color and is sported in a signature OPI bottle. After application, I noticed right away that it had strengthened my nail. My nail appeared thicker and harder to bend. After a few days my nails still stayed strong and my manicure lasted alot longer. So, my nails defiantly stayed strong and my mani lasted. I give this product an A+. I will be buying it again!

Hope this helped you guys out and thanks for reading.

Stay tuned for more blogs soon.
