imPRESS Broadway nails review

Do you remember my previous post about the Vox Box review from Influenster??
Well, if you don't simply scroll down and read it!
In the box there was a pretty package of fake nails from imPRESS that I didn't have quite the chance to use then and wanted to save for a special occasion.
Well, Wednesday was my birthday and I couldn't think of a better way to give myself a "treat". 
The plan was to go to my usual mani place, but money and time really didn't allow that, why not try the Broadway nails instead??
I must confess 2 things before I proceed with this review. 
First: I never EVER in my life used fake nails before so I didn't know what I was doing. 
Second: I wasn't very fond of the design that I found in the box and was very skeptical about these nails. 

That said, the night before my birthday I was in bed enjoying a movie and I thought I would give them a try. 
As I said, I have no experience with fake nails so it took me a while to figure out that they came in different sizes and I had to kinda pick the ones that better fit my own nails.....let just say that it's a good thing that I started on my left hand, so any booboo were made there!! 
As you can see, some of the nails I applied are slightly big for my hand but by the time I was working on my right hand, I had a better handle on it!
I found them very easy to put on, the instruction were written on the side of the package and basically all you have to do is peel the wrapper off and press on your nails. 
I like the fact that the tab will tell you what part went on the bottom and what part what the tip, that helped me a lot! 

They felt really strange on when I was all done, but decided to leave them on for the night, sleep with them and see I felt in the morning. 

I must confess that dress up in the morning was a little awkward as they are a little longer of my real nail, plus I was afraid they will chip or come off. But they didn't! 
Typing at the computer was also a challenge the very first day, but it's been 3 days now and I can honestly say that you get used to it and eventually re-train your movements to do your things with them on. 

I'm a very busy person, working at a day care and with 2 children and a household to run, I figured that the first time I put my hands in the water or took a shower, they would come off, but they didn't. Truthfully, only one came off from my right thumb but I think I didn't apply it correctly to begin with. It's awesome that the kit comes with 24 pieces in it, just for these situations, so you can have a whole set for several days.
As I said I wasn't really fond of the design either. 
I visited the imPRESS Broadway nails website and found so many other designs that I would have preferred to this one, mostly the simple and plain ones. I really couldn't figure out why I had the luck to receive the most fancy design and worried that it will look tacky on me!!! But I have to admit that they look pretty good instead and since they have a black and white scheme, they went well with all the outfits I changed in and  I think the little sparkle of glitter is more than appropriate for a summer look. 

I'm very happy I got to try them and really impressed. Even if they won't last a whole week, I think it's a good product to have around for a special event when time is lacking and much cheaper of a manicure with plenty of wonderful choices.

June 25th: Little update! It's been a full week now and they are still on even tho I hand wash dishes on a regular basis! I might need to buy more of them!

Influenster Vox Box

Had the pleasure to receive the so coveted purple box in the mail few days ago: the Influenster Vox Box!
Full of wonderful goodies......what a blessing to be able to try them! 
Here they are in all their splendor.....well, almost all of them!
As you can see from the wrapper, the first thing I "used" was the new Tastykake Kandy Bar kakes.

 Now, I have few excuses for devouring the whole thing at first sight without taking pictures of it or sharing it with, I got the box out of my mail box on a late Saturday afternoon after cleaning condos on the beach all day long, I was hungry, thirsty, tired and with no willing to cook myself anything, completely vulnerable.....XO

Truth is that it was a delicious chocolate care, made with Hershey cocoa. It smelled fantastic when I opened the wrapper and let me tell you: it was soft like if it was freshly baked that very day! 60 g of pure goodness of a chocolate covered cake with a creamy filling.....Yummy in a wrapper for 260 calories. Even with a person like me that is watching what I eat, it is totally worth it to include this snack in!! Definitely gonna find the closer distributor and stock up on those! 

The second product to come out of the Influenster Vox Box was the clear gel deodorant by Secret. It came in just in time as I was running out of my deodorant and was contemplating choosing a different brand from the one I was using as I was having problem with discoloration of my clothes in the underarm area. I usually prefer roll-on to the clear gel, but the Secret was a pleasant surprise ad it dries pretty quickly so it doesn't wet your clothes. 
I also was very thrilled that when I removed to cap, there was a protective paper slip on the top, a seal to assure the customer that the product is new and never been used before you. I don't know about you, but I always wonder when I buy deodorant at the store that someone before me might have tried on and put it back on the shelf.....eeeeewwwwwwwwwww! But it happens believe me! With the seal on the Secret deodorant, there is no doubts! So, thank you Secret for that! 
The claim that it last for 48 hours it also absolutely true! I live in Florida and it's already in the 90's here, believe me: perspiration occurs wayyyyyy too much! This product surely helps with odors and keep the area clean, so Secret: thank you for that as well! I will never go back to a generic roll on again, the Secret definitely wins my vote!

Also very impressed with the NYC Applelicious Glossy lip balm. I
 don't wear make up often, but when I do, I really have a hard time finding a lip color that I like for everyday use. 
When I opened with lip gloss, I noticed that it was called big apple red so I immediately thought "Here we go again, it's going to be a bright red that it's going to look hideous against my white complexion" :( 
But I couldn't be more wrong then that! This lip gloss gently tint my lips on a nice shade of red that it's not over the top and it's magnificent for my everyday make up style! 
I think it's because is basically 2 lip glosses in one with the outer layer in red and the orange center.....that is shaped like an apple, can you see??
I guess that's why the shade of red is so pretty and particular, rich but not too dark, plus is shiny! Even bigger plus: it smells like a real apple....puts me on a good mood every time! 
It definitely has a spot in my purse every day, so I can quickly put it on to retouch my lips. 

The other 2 products in the box were a press-on manicure set form imPRESS Broadway nails and a OSIS+ hair gel that I haven't had the chance to try yet. 
I want to try the press on nails so bad but for the whole summer I will be cleaning condos like there is no tomorrow and I don't wanna waste them, I'd like to use them for a very special occasion instead. 
The hair gel really isn't my thing as I never found a gel that looks good on me, but I swear I will give it a try. Eventually!

Oversize frame: 
Oversized glasses have won wide following and endorsement from celebrities due to their flamboyant and bold impression. The large frames and sleek lenses make that superstar vibe instantly as you put them on. If you want to have a new look, oversized frames definitely worth a try. 
Rectangle frame: 
Rectangular glasses are the most common style you can see on the street. For a simple look, you can never go wrong with a pair of rectangular framed glasses. They are of traditional style, very charming. Sleek and slim rims outline a precise profile.  

Vintage style: 
We are always fond of wearing stylish and chic glasses but we often ignore one particular type-vintage glass. Sometimes it's just so cool to go back in time and have a feel of what fashion was wayback. They are also the perfect way to complete your vintage outfit. 
Nerdy style: 
A medium sized, round eye frame shows a charmingly studious look. If you want that geeky or school girl type of look, then take a look at the below nerdy style, though simple, these are very stylish and classic too.  
Still not sure that eyewear can be fashionable? 
Then check out how some of these fashionistas style them:

Weight Update #10


WOW almost 3 months passed since last weight update!! 
But here I am, one pound lighter nonetheless. (And I wonderful blue pedi eheheh)

 In this time frame my weight dropped below 142 lb too, but needless to say, it was when I was sick with strep throat :( 

And now, my measurements since January (gasp!) 
Chest: 38" (the same) 
Waist: 34" (2 inches up....what???)
 Hips: 42" (1 inch up GRRRR) 
 Thigh: 22.5" (half inch less) 
 Arm: 11" (1 inch down) 

It funny because I actually think my clothes fill snug around the waist, who knows.

As for excercising, yeah, it's just not happening. 
I mean, I do stay on my feet a lot at work, about 5 hours out of the 6 hours per day every day during the week and I do intense cleaning work every Saturday. 
But it goes to show that if you don't target the specific areas, even if you're loosing weight, it's doesn't mean that your muscles are toning up. 
Likewise, when you're toning up and looking better, sometimes you don't see the weight loss you expect. 

Keeping this up! 
I really hope to be under 140 lb soon!
