We recently got back from Costa Rica and this was our second time staying at the Westin in Playa Conchal. Every time we’ve been has been absolute perfection! The resort is amazing, the food is always delicious and all the surrounding beaches are incredible. Check out some of the pics below!
The pool in our house was the perfect place to relax after a day at the beach and floating flamingos just make everything even better!
Flamingo Float: Target
Surf Box was my fav spot for breakfast! It’s about a 10 minute drive from the resort. One of the best smoothies I’ve ever had in my life and the menu is fantastic.
This restaurant called Beach House had the most adorable multi-coloured decor!
I had one of these ginger lemonade slushies almost everyday. They were NEXT LEVEL!
Spring and Summer deliveries are my favourite kind of deliveries! I’m so excited about this month’s batch of new arrivals. Check them all out below!
Is there any better way to welcome Spring then with the newest Chloe fragrance? I think not! Love Story Eau Sensuelle is the 3rd fragrance from Chloe’s Love Story lineup. The scent is inspired by Parisian romance and the famous love padlocks on the bridge of Pont des Arts. The difference in this fragrance is the orange blossom. It adds a sensual and fresh twist. I have found that alot of the Chloe fragrances smell pretty similar, but this one really stands apart from the pack. It has a little more punch to it and I absolutely love it.
This newest delivery from Avon has so many great goodies in it! I’m loving this little nail kit. The Avon nail kits always come in the cutest designs. I’m also crazy about these new face masks. There’s one for firming and one for brightening. I’m heading on vacation soon and I’ll definitely be taking this tote bag and travel containers with me.
The Vichy Idealia line was designed for the skin needs of women in their 30’s, which is perfect for me! I’ve started to see some fine lines appearing on my forehead so this is definitely a welcomed delivery. I’m excited to continue to use it and see if I can reverse some of these lines! The line is designed to help 3 of the most major concerns for skin in your 30’s: Dull skin, large pores and fine lines.
Idéalia’s antioxidant complex is powered by blueberry extract, fermented black tea extract and Vichy Mineralizing Thermal Water. It allows skin to appear more radiant, fine lines appear smoother and pores look visibly reduced. I’m obsessed with the serum. It feels amazing on my skin.
I’m totally loving the concept of the new NYX Cosmetics Total Control Drop Foundation. The foundation features a dropper which allows you to customize your coverage. There’s even a guide that explains how many drops to use to get a specific amount of coverage, ranging from light to full. I also love that the line includes 24 shades for just about any skin tone. Check out that lineup below. There really is a colour for everyone. Also, loving this campaign photoshoot featuring influencers! The pictures turned out amazing.
It’s a beautiful thing when two of your obsessions are combined together into one amazing product! Saje introduced a marble diffuser! My love of Saje and my love of marble are now combined and it’s a beautiful thing. I love displaying this one on my nightstand. It’s the prettiest diffuser I’ve ever seen and I love that this diffuser holds alot of water and lasts extra long. What’s your go-to Saje diffuser oil? Mine is Stress Release or pure lavender. I cannot get enough!
My love of all things lavender and coconuts is something I’ve written about quite a bit. So, when the below products arrived on my doorstep it was basically the best day ever. Lavender AND coconut hair products! Does life get any better? haha. I’m also obsessed with the OGX Lavender shampoo & conditioner because the purple colour helps my died blonde hair stay fresh and not brassy. Also, the lavender smell is divine. I’ve been testing out the Coconut Penetrating Oil and you need to try this if you have dry hair. The oil feels amazing on my hair right out of the shower and the smell is to die for! Can you tell I’m just a tad excited about these products?
My lazy Sunday game just got a major upgrade. This new mermaid blanket makes me so happy! Seriously, the only thing better than curling up on the couch is curling up inside this warm and cozy mermaid blanket. You can shop this exact blanket HERE and it’s currently on sale for just $16!
Could your hair use a little love and care right about now? Same here! I’ve been dyeing my hair blonde for years and the fact that I just went from bright red hair back to blonde means my hair is definitely in need of some damage repair. I’m so excited to partner with GLISS Hair Repair by Schwarzkopf to give one lucky winner the chance to win a GLISS hair collection valued at $60.
GLISS Hair Repair products are now available at Shoppers Drug Mart and they offer 5 solution-based hair repair lines. I’m loving the Shampoo and Conditioner because they all feature Keratin technology. There’s also a Color Guard line that helps protect coloured hair and helps your colour last longer. My favourite product from the lineup is the leave in treatment sprays. I’m obsessed! I hope you love them as much as I do.

This months Pink Mail Bag is full of some of the cutest new arrivals I’ve ever seen and alot of pink! There’s been so many fun deliveries lately that I’ve been dying to write about, but this month turned into one of the busiest months of my life (!!!). I’m finally getting around to finishing this post so let’s get started!
I’m so excited to introduce you to Pombons. These little pom pom shoe clips totally change up the look of your favourite shoes and they are absolutely adorable! The company was started by my friend Cristina from Shoe Tease Blog, who is definitely a shoe expert. The colour selection is amazing. Check out the combinations I created below! I can’t get over how cute they are.
I wanted to write about the skincare lineup I’ve been using because my skin has never felt better. This Garnier Gentle Clarifying Cleansing Gel feels really gentle and moisturizing but it also easily removes all of my makeup and mascara. This is exactly what I look for in a cleanser.
I have to have Caudalie Beauty Elixir on hand at all times for morning and night. If you haven’t discovered this product yet, YOU MUST. It has a cult following and for good reason. The refreshing and clean feeling you get after spraying it on is actually addicting. My skin always feels amazing after a quick spritz throughout the day and before I put my makeup on.
This Philosophy Take A Breath Eye Gel Cream is so moisturizing and non-irritating. My eyes are SUPER sensitive and this product has been one of the only eye creams I’ve been able to use consistently. It also feels really smooth and cooling on tired eyes which I love for the morning.
Last but not least, this Origins GinZing Energy Boosting Moisturizer is one I will buy over and over again. It’s rare that I actually buy beauty products since I get sent quite a bit, so you know if I’m re-purchasing it means a product was THAT good. This one checks off all of my boxes for a great moisturizer: lightweight, fresh, soothing, hydrating and oil-free.
Lise Watier sent over some of their new products for spring and I’m loving the mix of light pink, bronze and pops of bright colour. There’s also a great moisturizer with an SPF that I’m saving for my upcoming vacation and the spring/summer months. This eyeshadow souffle is one of my all time favourite products. I use it almost daily. It’s a mix between a cream and powder shadow and it goes on so smoothly with a really subtle shimmer. This pink blush shade is really pretty. Also, I love a good bronzer and this one is a must!
I get so excited when new fragrances land on my doorstep. Especially when the packages are completely pink! This new fragrance from Tory Burch is called Love Relentlessly and it’s definitely my new go-to date night perfume. It’s a mix of pink pepper and patchouli, infused with dewy rose and amber. And check out the jewel-shaped bottle with hints of gold. The package came with some note paper cards to write out some love letters. I’ll definitely be using these! This perfume now has a permanent spot on my vanity.
Skechers sent over these new gym shoes and I basically haven’t taken them off since they arrived. They are so comfortable they seriously feel like a second skin. I love the graphic design and they are incredibly lightweight. I can use all the workout motivation I can get and cute shoes definitely do the trick!
Can we talk about the packaging on these new Quo spring products from Shoppers Drug Mart? These are definitely “display on my vanity” worthy. They seriously look like little pieces of art and the shadows and blushes inside are beautiful. There’s also a great brow kit. I’ll be using all of these pink shades all spring/summer!
When Cake introduces new products I immediately jump for joy. And when they announce that they are introducing an entire lineup of dry styling products, I basically hit the ceiling! Check out these new hair products below. I cannot get enough. First of all, all Cake products smell like heaven. Second of all, these sprays are a major lifesaver for girls on the go. I’m always heading from the gym to work to events and I’m always looking for products to help my hair look presentable and last longer between washes. These have definitely been added to my must-have list. Plus, the cute packaging and delicious smell is a bonus! Since my hair is pretty dry, I’ve been using The Locks Smith Hydrating Dry Conditioner Spray the most. It has Argan Oil, Coconut Oil and Crambe Seed Oil to add shine, moisturize, smooth and condition my hair. It’s also a frizz-fighter and super lightweight. It’s been saving my dry hair this winter since static is basically my #1 enemy!
Some companies are a match made in heaven and I’m loving this new collaboration between Clinique and Crayola. How much fun are these new limited-edition Chubby Sticks? Any girl that says she doesn’t want these, is lying to herself. It’s pure childhood nostalgia mixed with lipstick! As a child, nothing was better than opening a new box of crayons and now as a beauty addict nothing is better than opening up a fresh new lipstick. These give you the best of both of those experiences! haha. I’m in love with the Tickle Me Pink shade. All of the shades add a juicy pop of subtle colour to the lips and are spring perfection.
