Julep Camille 3

Julep Camille

Julep Camille belongs to the lovely family of polishes I swatched before on Writing Whimsy but would happily reshare now that I have (hopefully) improved both my polishing technique and photography. I swatched her originally back in April 2013 as a part of the Julep Spring Mystery Box and you …

Sephora Haul 4

Sephora Haul (3)

But Zoe, you might ask, I thought you were on a no buy? Well, I was until the month of July (whoops) and I will be back on it soon, but basically Sephora forced me to make an order from them. So this Sephora Haul is not my fault. Nope, …

It’s a full coverage glitter (and they’re not lying!) named after Betty White, born January 17th. Julep has been releasing these polishes monthly, but there’s only …

Sally Hansen Xtreme Wear Sea Bloom Collection

Sally Hansen Xtreme Wear Sea Bloom

Summer seems to be going by so fast, but you can hold onto it a little longer with the watery pastel shades of Sally Hansen Xtreme Wear Sea Bloom Collection, which I was able to try out five of the eight polishes from. In addition to Pearl Up*, Kelp Yourself*, …

davidstea white chocolate frost 2

DAVIDsTEA White Chocolate Frost

In continuing my habit of reviewing teas long after they are available, I bring you a DAVIDsTEA White Chocolate Frost from the Winter Collection (check out my haul of it here). I wasn’t planning to drink this one after I finished up Santa’s Secret, but a comment from Jenn about …
