with spring here, i'm so exicted to bust out my warm weather gear. remember when i used to wear a bra? yeah, me neither but it's time to banish my boobs back to boob jail and now they're sad.
and to welcome the nice spring weather, i'd like to share with you some of my favorite spring bonerism things:
// maui jim sunglasses. i used to be all into burberry and gucci sunglasses because i'm a label ho. although they made me look fab a la jackie o'nassis, they weren't the most comfortable things to wear and after an hour or so, they'd hurt the bridge of my nose or my ears where the arms rested. then i lost my burberry glasses and #RAGE.
enter: maui jim sunglasses. same price as designer labels but WAY better. not only are these lenses polarized, clear as hell and badass, they're feather-light so i can't even feel that i'm wearing them. also, aviators are cool.
// consonant body "The Perfect Sunscreen" for the face. i made the switch to all-natural products years ago and sunscreen was at the top of my list. i read that sunscreens contain cancer-causing chemicals and if that's not irony, i don't know what is. besides, who wants to slather cancer on their face? i sure don't! consonant body is a canadian brand specializing in all natural, organic products made with organic ingredients. the beauty of this product is that it doesn't go on thick and gross like other physical blocks but actually blends well on your skin and isn't drying (which was a huge problem for me with other blocks). a bit on the pricey side ($45) but so worth it.
// Toms shoes. i don't care what anyone says - Toms shoes are the best. their flats aren't ugly despite what blogland says and their wedges are amazingly comfy and stylish.
// capris. i could wear capris all the live long day. paring them with Toms flats? even better.
//green beaver lip balm. i love this company because it has the word beaver in it all of their products are certified USDA organic, 100% all natural and they're canadian so that makes them even more awesome. i usually pair this with my regular lip balm for the added protection of SPF.
ok guys. you know i'm not a fan of sponsored posts but this here is different.
i was recently contacted by a company called Obsessed Canada to try, and review, a hair removal product called Bellabe. now, before you roll your eyes and move on because we all know that's what we do with sponsored posts, slow the fuck down and hear me out. if you have facial hair that requires threading or waxing, you're going to want to pay attention.
this is what they sent me:
now bitches, don't even pretend that you don't have facial hair. don't pretend that you don't have a lady 'stache BECAUSE YOU DO. we all do. and as we age and our hormones turn into an annoying whore, you will get an old lady 'stache and other unwanted hair on your face. you will get peach fuzz that ain't so peachy anymore because guess what? that's what old hags get.
and who has time for waxing? i'm not a fan of waxing because all that pulling and shit on your face? that promotes wrinkles and ain't nobody got time for wrinkles.
then there's laser - that shit works but goddamn, is it expensive.
those cream things? gross; they smell nasty and are filled with unknown chemicals.
razors? get the fuck outta here.
threading? hit and miss. there are threaders who know their shit and then there are threaders who give you chola brows. no thanks; chola brows are not welcome on my face.
before i gave my answer to Obsessed Canada, i did a little research about the product and by research, i mean i youtubed the shit out of it. you know that i only put the best products up on this here blog and when i saw what it did and how it works, i thought hell yeah i want that in my anti-chewbacca arsenal!
so what is Bellabe and how the hell does it remove your hair?
it's a thin, flexible coil that you place on your skin and roll it back and forth to gently remove hair.
what exactly do you do/how do you use it? place the coil against your skin and roll it across your hairs. the fine coils will pick up those annoying hairs and remove them from your life. and because i'm a total tool in front of the camera and too lazy to do a video anyway, here's their official video:
because the coil is so tight and small, it grabs even the finest of hairs so that 'stache you hate? those odd chin hairs that somehow manages to escape you? that forehead fuzz?
one other thing to note: my skin is very sensitive so i was a tad worried about how i would react but after coiling the fuck out of my upper lip, it wasn't even red, sensitive or sore and every single trace of my lady 'stache is gone. took me less than 2 minutes to clear that shizz.
and for only $15, you can't go wrong. not only that, but it's free shipping anywhere in canada which pleases the cheap chinawoman in me.
i'm not sure how these sponsored posts are supposed to end; something like i was sent this product for free but all reviews and opinions are my own...or some legal jargon like that.
all i know is that i LOVE this product! thanks, Tiffany, for sending this to me! now ladies, get working on that 'stash because nobody likes a chewbacca face!
what are some of your favorite spring things?
psst! don't forget about the humpday confessions linkup tomorrow with me and ryan! grab his face and hump the shit out of it!!
