Review: Frames From

I wear glasses. I’ve been wearing glasses for as long as I can remember. I can’t image a time when I haven’t worn them. I even wear them swimming. I like to be able to see so I only take them off when I am sleeping or showering. I even have a pair of prescription sunglasses so that when I am driving my eyes are protected.

I am rather picky when it comes to my frames, I like a certain look and have a certain price range that I need to stay within so I’ve been lucky that I haven’t had to purchase new glasses in several years. My prescription hasn’t changed at all so when I was given the opportunity to review glasses purchase from I of course jumped at the chance.

The frames that I ended up choosing are “Lancaster – Red.


Retail price of these frames is advertised at $149.75 but they are priced at only $29.95! Talk about a huge saving! My original glasses put my back about $300 when I ordered them and they took about 3 weeks to arrive.

The great thing about is their “Try on” feature. I was extremely happy to be able to use this feature to see which frames suited me best. I think I tried on about 15 different looks before I settled on “Lancaster – Red”

This is a photo of my original frames.

Don’t I look so cute! I just love them. I stepped out of my comfort zone when deciding on which frames I should order and I’m so pleased with the outcome. I’ve been wearing these glasses for several days now and they are quite comfortable and light weight. They arrived packaged and wrapped in a protective cloth within the glasses case. If I ever need to purchase a new pair of frames I definitely will consider purchasing them online.

Would you like to receive some savings on glasses? I have a 20% off coupon code if you are interested. Just enter Erica20 at checkout and with your purchase you will receive 20% off your Vision lenses with FREE Anti-Scratch Coating and a FREE protective case & cloth. Keep in mind that shipping and handling fees may apply.

Keep in mind that if you are ordering frames from you will need to provide a copy of your prescription. Included on that prescription needs to be your pupillary distance or PD. The PD is the distance between your two pupils measured in millimeters (e.g. 60). Your PD is not always included in your eyeglass prescription, but it’s very helpful to have when making your eyeglasses to ensure that they fit you perfectly.

I did not receive any compensation for this product review. I did receive the frames, but all opinions are 100% my own.

Influenster – Garnier Fructis #ColorShield

I recently received a lovely box from Influenster which was full of Garnier #ColorShield hair care products to review.


Included in the box was:

  • Garnier Fructis Color Shield Shampoo for colour treated hair
  • Garnier Fructis Color Shield Conditioner for colour treated hair
  • Garnier Fructis Color Shield Heat Protect & Shine Spray for colour treated hair

The shampoo is light pink in colour has an amazing smell. For some reason I just love using shampoo that smells nice, so this was a win win for me! The conditioner is light and not overly thick which I’ve found with some products I’ve used. It also helped to cure my frizzy hair issues.

I used the Heat Protect & Shine Spray and found it to leave somewhat of a greasy reside on my hair. Apparently this is common (thanks google!) so I obviously didn’t use enough. My hair seems to straighten pretty easily anyways but I did notice that it had more shine to it then it usually does. I also received some compliments the following day about how healthy my hair looked.

I’ve never really used products targeted towards colour treated hair so I have nothing to compare them against, except my regular products. I probably wouldn’t purchase the spray once it runs out just because my hair seems to straighten fine without it.

Overall I would recommend the products to family and friends who were interested in having lovely smelling, shiny hair! I don’t know many that straighten their hair as much as I do though.

Disclaimer: I received these products free of charge from Influenster however I was not paid for my review and all opinions are my own.

Influenster – Broadway Nails imPRESS Press-on Manicure

I was lucky enough to receive another present from Influenster a few weeks ago and I was beyond excited to be chosen for this box. If you know me, then you know I have a love for nail polish so to be able to do a review on imPRESS Press-on manicure by Broadway Nails is really exciting.


imPRESS Press-on Manicure by Broadway Nails is the revolutionary way to achieve a flawless manicure in seconds. All you need to do is find the correct size, peel and press and you are done! It’s that simple. It took me about 3 mins to apply the nails. No lies!

I applied my nails Friday morning. I had to be out the door by 8am for work and I decided to apply then at 7:50am. It took a few short minutes to find the correct size, peel off the protective layer and then press on the nails. I am beyond hooked! Especially with the nails that I received.

Influenster sent me 2 imPRESS Press-on Manicure kits to use. I decided to apply the Disney Villains. The colour is just amazing. It look grey with a hint of purple depending on how you are looking at the nails.

My students were also in love with the way they look. They couldn’t believe that they were press on nails. In the beginning the nails felt slightly odd, but now I am so use to them I don’t even think twice about doing things. They are suppose to last up to a week so I guess only time will tell.

Tomorrow I have to work, so that will be the true test. Here’s hoping a nail doesn’t pop off while I’m working cash.

I received these products complimentary for testing purposed from Influenster.

Review: Nail Wraps From NCLA

I was recently contacted by the lovely Tiffany over at Nail Polish Canada and asked if I would like to review some Nail Wraps by NCLA.

NCLA is a fashion forward, luxury line available in high-end retail outlets and boutiques and retail for $16 each.

I received Leather and Lace and Brillapalooza. Included in the package with the nail wraps was a nail file; which I should add was a nice surprise.

Nail Wrap Package

This was my first time using Nail Wraps and I was surprised at how quick and easy the application process was. I’ve always been a little skeptical with wraps, but I was pleasantly surprised.

I choose to place my nail wrap over top a colour polish because I don’t usually wear bare nails. I was a little skeptical at first if the wrap would stick to the actual polish but so far so good! I’m on day 3 of wearing them and they haven’t lifted or peeled off. I did apply a top coat over the nail wrap’s per the instruction to seal it on and add shine.

I think these nail wraps are a great addition to any manicure. It’s a great way to dress it up or create a new look.

Influenster – L’Oreal Mystery Box Reveal “Garnier Fructis Damage Eraser”

So I posted about receiving an Influenster L’Oreal Canada Mystery VoxBox and well the reveal has happened!

Influenster Mystery Box Reveal

I received FULL sized products of *NEW* Garner Fructis Damage Eraser.

  • Shampoo – Reconstructs and preserves strengths for strong hair that looks rejuvenated
  • Conditioner – Reconstructs and preserves strength for strong hair that looks rejuvenated
  • Split Ends Bandage Serum – Each drop helps to prevent split ends and reconstruct and preserves hair strengths
  • Strength Reconstructing Butter – Rich, indulgent butter is designed to intensely reconstruct hairs strength for strong, rejuvenated and shiny looking hair.

I was not expecting nor have I ever used hair butter so I was pretty surprised and loved being able to try it out.

The first thing I noticed about the products is the smell. Oh wow, do they ever smell good. Like really good. The samples smelt good but I seriously can not stop smelling the butter. It’s to die for. Someone needs to make a candle in this scent.

You must be wondering how the product delivered? Did it repair my damaged hair? Well I only used it for a week so I can’t be 100% sure that it did, but I did notice that my hair was shiner and slightly stronger. I straighten my hair constantly so it was nice to see that it didn’t look as abused as it has in the past.

Now that I have the full size products I will continue to use them. Hopefully I notice a difference. The samples came at a great time because I was just about to start a new bottle of shampoo. I usually mix it up and just get what ever is on sale or what I can get for next to nothing with coupons so I can’t wait to use this product more and not have to use anything from my stock pile for the next few months.

If you would like an invitation to become an Influenster just let me know. (must be Canadian)

I received this product complimentary from Influenster for testing purposes.
