Daisy VoxBox

I got my first VoxBox from Influenster about a week ago. Influenster is a review platform where you can rate and review almost anything - from beauty to cars to hotels. VoxBox is what their beauty box is called but unlike it being a subscription, they handpick people every month to receive these boxes. It's free of charge and in return, you review the products on Influenster and your social medias so that you continue staying eligible for the boxes.

I got the Daisy VoxBox and it's my first box so I'm excited about that. However, I'm personally not so excited about the things in the box. This is the card that was included in the box that shows what is inside. Unfortunately, my greek yoghurt is missing but I'm not missing that because I do not like yoghurt.
There are a bunch of tasks to complete and badges to unlock on the app so that is quite fun to do.
The item that I've been enjoying the most in the box is this Nature's Bounty Probiotic Gummies. I'm thinking it's like Yakult but in gummy form because it's good bacteria for the digestive system. I love gummy vitamins so this is a nice sweet treat.
This is a detoxifying charcoal paper mask from Yes To Tomatoes and it's like a normal sheet mask but feels thicker (even though "paper" might sound like it would be thinner). It's a completely black mask with a nice fragrance and there are eye flaps that you can use to cover your eyelids but I found that the mask stung my eyes so I kept them down. Overall, the mask stung a bit at first but I got used to it and I wasn't bothered much about it. The instructions did mention that it might sting so if it's too painful for you, then remove it. I'm not sure why it stings but the ingredients contain a ton of fruit extracts so that sounds really really good. I can't tell what effects it gave after a single use but I only received one mask to try. Oh well.

Then we have some popcorn from Skinny Pop and these claim to be guilt free! They only contain 27 calories so I guess you really can binge on these while watching a movie. Just pop them in the microwave and wait for it to pop! These are sea salt flavored and it seems to have some movie trivias around the box. Can't wait to try them!
Unfortunately, my period is over so I won't have a chance to try out this pad until next month. My flow isn't super heavy though, but I do appreciate thin pads as they feel more comfortable.
Lastly, an item that I wish I could try but can't, is this Live Clean Coconut Milk Shampoo and Conditioner. Most shampoos cause my hair to shed so I'm thinking my scalp is sensitive to some particular ingredients. I'm not sure what ingredient it is but I don't want to risk it. I'll use the conditioner though, since that is applied on my hair ends instead so it won't affect my scalp or roots.

I really want to get a beauty filled box with makeup or skincare because that is what I'm really into. So, I'm hoping my next one will be better!

Real vs Fake Adidas Superstar/Stan Smith

I've wanted to do this post for a long time, ever since I started on my crazy collection of Adidas Superstars. I mean, I think I make quite a credible source because at one point, I owned 14 pairs of Superstars and Stan Smiths. I will be migrating my Superstar collection post over to this blog over the coming days so that you can read up on where I got them.



I'm not sure if these shoes are still as popular and wanted now because I am sort of out of the loop but if you are looking to get yourself a pair of Superstars or Stan Smiths, these are a few pointers to look out for in identifying if what you are buying is real or fake. Take note that these features are mostly applicable to recent releases only. Old models and Superstar 80s are slightly different. Then again, old models are not sold in stores anymore so if you find brand new pairs elsewhere, you should be cautious. 

I owned a a few pairs of fake Superstars before I purchased my first original pair from the Adidas website. …

diy: hair bows

From the cloth I bought recently at Daiso, and with the major diy mood I was in, I decided to make a bunch of hair bows to wear when school reopens. My tutorial has been inspired and sourced through many inspirations on pinterest.  Start off with a rectangular or square piece of fabric. Squares will result in bows like the blue floral one above while rectangles will be like this bow in the tutorial. Mine measured about 24cm by 12cm. For my blue floral one, i used a 15cm by 15 cm square. Fold your fabric in half, with the insides facing out and straight stitch as highlighted. Leave a gap at the edge because you will be inverting the fabric after you're done sewing. This gap should also be of reasonable size, not to small or you will have trouble inverting the cloth. Once you are done, invert the fabric and  straighten it out. You can sew up the gap at this point if it bothers you. Using a pin or a needle, make some pleats with the fabric and pin through to get the bow shape. Once yo…

Arctic Fox Hair Dye Review on Dark Unbleached Hair

I've been meaning to try Arctic Fox's hair dyes for a couple of years but never got around to it because I feared it wouldn't show up on dark hair. It's been coming up more and more on Instagram again so I did some research and apparently Purple Rain, Aquamarine and Poseidon do show up on dark hair. So that's what I purchased! These retail for $7.99 (4 fl oz) or $13.99 (8 fl oz) on the Arctic Fox website but I got mine off Amazon.  Arctic Fox hair dyes are vegan and cruelty free. They also do not contain harsh chemicals like peroxides, ammonia and PPD. These are semi-permanent and they contain conditioning agents which means you can use these dyes as often as you want to without damaging your hair. Semi-permanent hair dyes only coat your hair so it will fade with each wash. The bottle claims that it can last up to 40 washes. These smell like grape candy so it is such a treat to use them. The instructions to use this is pretty simple. 1. Shampoo and wash hair witho…
