Valentine's Day Lookbook - Romantic Tulle Skirt

February 2015 is almost here.. and you know what that means - Valentine's Day! It's one of my favorite dates of the year because *warning cheesiness ahead* I believe in celebrating LOVE! <3 Although I am more of an advocate in loving yourself/your partner every single day of the year, there's a certain romantic vibe in the air whenever Feb 14th rolls around! (yes i have to bold, underline and highlight it just in case the dudes forget) 

And with this romantic atmosphere, one shall not be judged if she chooses to put on her girly, poofy, twirly, lacy, princessy tulle skirt! 

While love is in the air, the cold air is definitely in the air too! How I braved through this photoshoot in -15 Canadian weather I will never understand. I guess my passion for tulle skirts outshines any wintery chills! 

Channeling my inner Elsa. *The cold never bothered me anyway*
See that whiteness? Yup. That's snow. And Ice. And a frozen lake, I'm loving the ribbon that I used to tie around my skirt - gives it more of that princessy vibe! 
Okok I know you are all wondering where did you get this skirt!?!? Scroll down for items list! ^^

Top: Actually a dress! Check out my review here, and buy it here
Tulle Skirt: buy it Here
Clutch: Kate Spade, buy it here
Bracelet: buy it here
Heels: buy it here
Pairing it with a nude pointed toe pair of heels will only elongate your legs, and the classic Chanel purse will add glam and class to any outfit, especially to accent a romantic tulle skirt! 

Stay tuned for more Valentine's Day Lookbooks!
Let me know what you are planning to wear this Valentine's Day!

BEAUTEQUE Head To Toe Milk Bag Unbox

Hello lovelies!!!

Hope everyone is doing amazing in this super icy and cold winter! A lot of you have been asking me about the Beauteque beauty bag I posted a while back, I am still using the products from that bag and am enjoying all the goodies that's included for a fraction of the price! In case you're not aware of them, Beauteque has super value Collection Bags that you can either subscribe to, or purchase on its own without subscription. The Head to toe Milk Bag is one of their impromptu beauty bags that you purchase without subscription, for only $25. Here are what's included in the bag: 

 The Milk bag contains 7 full sized products along with a cute checkered pouch
You get a cute little customized card explaining the benefits and goodies of milk!

On the backside of the card, there are descriptions of each product (which is very handy considering many of the products are directly from Korea and will have no English description or directions!)

1. The SKINFOOD Wildberry Milk Cleansing Foam
When you order the Milk bag from Beauteque you can choose the type of cleanser you want. (Skinfood Wildberry Milk Cleanser or Skinfood Green Tea Milk Cleanser) 

2. The Beauty Credit or Secret Key Milk Hand Cream

Closeup of the handcream that I tried and tested as soon as I received it!

Mini review: It comes out in a squeezy tube and the texture reminds me more of a gel texture than a heavy cream.

It's super easy to spread out, and leaving your hands feeling moisturized and soft. One thing I love about it is that it is NOT sticky, unless a lot of the heavy creams out there. 

3. SKINFOOD Shea Butter Lip Care Bar Milk

5. Milk Wash Off Sponge

This is a relatively unique product and I was so curious so I took it out for a spin - turns out it's moist (I assume it's infused with milk properties) and is so soft! I recommend using this under any cream face wash and it does a great job at exfoliating all the winter dead skin cells.

When I first saw this my first reaction was O.O SAMSUNG makes masks?! HAHA!
Turns out it's the 3W CLINIC Fresh milk Mask Sheet 

Update: I used this last night and it's super infused with milky essence when you take it out, and the leftover in the packet can be used for other rough areas on your body (i.e elbows and knees) it made my skin super soft in the morning! 

6. Secret Key Milk Brightening Toner

7. SKINFOOD Milk Creamy Nail polish (pastel orange)
When you order on the site, you can choose from different colors! (They have pastel orange, green, blue, pink and purple)

Nail polish in action! It's super creamy and nonstreaky which is a definite plus in pastel colors!

The value of all these items in the Head to Toe Milk Bag adds up to USD$66, but you only pay USD$25 for everything PLUS a free makeup pouch! It's also perfect if you want to give some of the brands / products a try but purchasing it on its own is already close to $25 plus shipping fee! Beauteque ships to the US, Canada, and Europe for different shipping fees (check out this page for shipping fees) 

If you have any questions, feel free to let myself or Beauteque know - their customer service is 200% EXCELLENT and I cannot stress enough how Diya is extremely professional and responds to any inquiries promptly. 

Looking forward to unboxing the January BB Bag!
