GLYMM Box Review: July!!!

Hello Gorgeous!!!

I received my FIRST "Glymm" box today!!!!! I was SO excited when I got the notice in the mail! I actually got one for June, but like a bone-head, I forgot to go pick it up at the post office (D'OH!) and it got sent back, BUT they have recently sent it back to me, thankfully!! (so my next one will be for June!)

ANYWAYS, is a website that delivers deluxe beauty product samples to you every month! (they have other websites like this but they are only available in the states, IE)Birch box) I was SO excited when I found a Canadian company! They are based out of Montreal, and you receive a small make-up bag and 4 or 5 sample products to try! When i first heard of this, I was like "where the HELL have i been and why am I not a part of this!!??". Its SO perfect if you are a product junkie (like myself) only NOW you don't have to spend fortunes on stuff you want to try! Its only $12.00 per month (or you can pay for a whole year) and you can quit at any time. Anyways, you're tired of my's what I received for my July Glymm Box:

I have already tried all the products, as I was too excited to wait; one of them I tried on the train, minutes after I got it ha ha.

It contains: "Social Butterfly" Hair Perfume by Maneteeze, "dirt" Purify + Glow salt scrub (OMG SMELLS SOOOOOOO GOOD!!!!) "Joico" K-PAK Revitaluxe Restorative treatment, and "Cyberderm" PM Anti-Age cream & H20 Hydration cream. (I also received a little coupon for 25% off nail polish on!

All in all, I enjoyed ALL the products. However the Cyberderm was..different. REALLY cool packaging, as both creams come in syringes! The PM Anti-Age was very light and soaked into my skin instantly. The H20 cream was quite heavy, maybe better for the winter months for sure. BUT Cyberderm is a sunscreen company and BOTH those creams have SPF in them and they have natural and medicinal actives in them.

Well folks, hope you enjoyed the I am off to paint my ceramic owl I just bought (pic below), and I just wanted to blog about this fabulous company!

Love, Laura

Summertime and the Livin' is Easy: Photo-Walk

Hello Beautiful!

Its been a while since I've blogged anything, as I have been a busy bee this summer! I have really spent MORE time outside THIS summer, than in my whole life! And my tan can prove it! Anyways, I just thought I'd give you a little sneak peek into what I've been up to so far...Enjoy :)

It has been a hot one this summer, and when my cats are napping in the bathroom constantly, you know its a scorcher!

Finding a quiet park in the city is so great, especially spending a Sunday there with the family!

This was taken in Jamaica, we were there in May for a wedding and it was amazing!

My beautiful mom renewed her wedding vows in June!

Taking the street car to the Strathcona Farmers Market (We live about 10 steps from where the street-car comes downtown!!)

BOONSTOCK!!! By far the best summer event..drinking, relaxing and seeing great bands with 2 other amazing girls!!!!

Fish Bowl Fridays at BP's with my gorgeous love!

Picture taken from my balcony...very smoky in Edmonton for a couple days, due to fires FAR away!

Spent the day at Pigeon was so beautiful, AND you can walk out REALLY far before it even reaches your shoulders!

My beautiful sister and I shared our b-day celebration together this past weekend! My birthday is July.29 and hers is August.1...and yes we are the same age!!!)

Well I hope you enjoyed that! I also hope your summer is going amazing so far!

Love, Laura xoxox
