Luxe Box January 2012 Review




Delivery Packaging:
The first 2012 Luxe Box has finally arrived! There was a shipment delay that Loose Button did notify subscribers to. Unfortunately, it is basically the end of the month now. On a good note, surprisingly, the box is larger than usual! It still comes in a brown cardboard delivery box, with a flip open lid that has its website and brand "Loose Button" on it. The delivery method used this time was Express CanadaPost, with tracking, due to the delay issue.

Links of London Chinese New Year Special Offer 2012


Links of London at Holt Renfrew locations had an event this weekend (January 28, 2012 - January 29, 2012), where if you visit your Links of London counter at Holt Renfrew, you had a chance to choose a Chinese New Year envelope with a discount in it, with the grand prize of winning $500 shopping spree from Links of London!

Holt Renfrew Chinese New Year Envelope 2012


Went to the Holt Renfrew on Bloor St. in Toronto this weekend. Chinese New Year was on Monday, January 23, 2012 but this weekend (January 28, 2012 - January 29, 2012) in celebration of it, they were giving out a Chinese New Year zodiac, together with a red envelope (lai see) which had a Holt Renfrew chocolate coin in it. I wonder if they did anything on the actual Chinese New Year day or the weekend before...Oh well, any celebration/holiday that we get anything at all, no matter how big or small, is always a nice touch! =)

Glymm Butter London Purchase with Free RMS Beauty Lip Shine









My Glymm purchase just arrived today! Woohoo! As I had mentioned in my Glymm Box January 2012 review, after receiving a promotional card with the Glymm box, I purchased the super cute Butter London nail polish holiday set that I had been eyeing. Even though I so do NOT need more nail polishes, the promotion was too good to pass up. By entering in the promo code HAPPY2012 at checkout, valid on purchases from the Beauty Boutique from January 15, 2012 through January 31, 2012, an RMS Beauty Lip Shine in Bloom was included with your order absolutely FREE. The fact that it was while quantities last and a $25 value won me over.

Cat Ear Headband with Neuro Sensing Technology


A fashionable headband that responds to your brain waves by pushing the ears up or down depending on your brain activity. Loving the idea how the fashion world is incorporating more tech into the things we wear. Hoping one day Tron suits will be the norm. The new ones I mean not the old ones people make with blue Crayola markers.

Moet & Chandon Rose Imperial Games of Seduction Gift Set



It's almost Valentines day and if you haven't started thinking about what to get your significant other then here is a great gift idea that I received from Connie a few years back. It doesn't come with the coffee stain that was something I did a few years back when I was too busy with work to even look for a resting place for my coffee cup. I got this around 2-3 years ago and I'm only opening it now XD.

Glymm Box January 2012 Review


Delivery packaging:
Yay! The first Glymm box for the 2012 new year has arrived! Nothing changed for the packaging. Still the same cute pink rectangular cardboard box as last year. Delivery is still done by CanadaPost with tracking and the "fragile" sticker keeps it extra secure. I found that shipping was quicker than expected this time around since last month (December 2011) it was last to arrive at the end of the month whereas this time it came in second place, coming only a day or two after Topbox.

Topbox January 2012 Review



Delivery Packaging:
It's the 2012 new year and Topbox is still the best at being first in delivering their boxes each month! Outer packaging is still the same, where it is a cylinder tube shape that is delivered by CanadaPost with tracking, wrapped up in brown paper. I found that the ends were sealed a bit better this month, where they either glued down or put some sort of sticky substance to hold in the ends for better security so that it is not as easily tampered with.

Timothy K-Cup Facebook Giveaway Arrives



Luckily, the Timothy's K-Cup giveaway fiasco ended up surprisingly better than expected for me today. I was losing all hope that it was ever going to show up, and truthfully, i just put it out of my mind, but low and behold it ends up showing up at my front door today!

Less Is Definitely More



In her books Bobbi Brown always said that less is more and when this picture of Snooki surfaced on the Internet I really do think that's true. She looks 10x better without makeup.

Clothing Donation Bin Scam




Someone blew the whistle on the clothing donation bin scam. Down below is a video where you can watch the CBC report of the scandal. What is interesting in this video is they actually masked the whistle blowers voice. However, in the Sympatico video his voice wasn't disguised and that distinct speech pattern of his could get someone a hurt a real bad!

Men's T-Shirt Converted to a Woman's T-Shirt



One of the biggest reasons why I didn't donate any of my old clothes is because of this video. I came across this video by accident when doing searches on prototyping and it really got me thinking about other applications. Such as taking an XXXL shirt and modifying it to a smaller sized Shirt. I've got a lot of great looking graphic T-shirts that I don't wear anymore that I could modify for Connie.
