Unplug Meditation Aromatherapy Diffuser
$55.00 USD $73.37 CAD
This diffuser included an essential oil called "HAPPY" as a starter oil which you can switch out to any aromatherapy oil for different meditations. I have yet to purchase a diffuser, this will be my first one to test the waters with. The light fixture changes colours as well to add ambiance to any room. My negative point about this diffuser is it does leak water everywhere! I was careful not to tip it, but the water spits out the top. I have to set a paper towel under it and watch what tables I set it on. It is my first diffuser, I'm not sure if all of them do this or if it's a defect with the Unplug brand one. For $73.00 I was hoping it wouldn't give me any problems or messes.
QUAY Australia "My Girl" in Black/Smoke
$55.00 USD $73.37 CAD
I love the style of Quay sunglasses including ones with unique frames, which is why I chose these cat eye frames. The cat eye shape instantly caught my attention and would look the most flattering on my oval face shape. The frame is slim with the chic branding on the sides and the lens. Going with black/ smoke was a great colour choice that will compliment many outfits. Sunglasses are the equivalent to handbags to me and these will make a great addition to my growing collection.
Giadzy Copper Plated Measuring Spoons
$15.00 USD $20.00 CAD
These are super chic measuring spoons that come as a set of 4. Unfortunately these spoons are not my kitchens colour theme which is silver, they stand out like a sore thumb. I will be gifting these to my friend who just got her first apartment and chose copper as her kitchen utility theme. What I will be using is the delicious recipes Giada's included in the FabFitFun magazine to try new recipes for the spring season.
Ciate London Extraordinary Translucent Setting Powder
$22.00 USD $29.35 CAD
This was a manifestation moment for me, granted by the makeup Gods. I'm on my last leg of my translucent powder and was in the market for a new one. The only Ciate London products I have known is their collaboration with Chloe Morello. The translucent powder is very smooth due to it's fine milling process. When I went looking on Sephora Canada I discovered they do not sell this. Going directly to the Ciate London website is the purchase option for us Canadians.

It's a great cardio choice as well as all over body toning ; most importantly the biceps and legs. FabFitFun members have access to workout videos instructed by Venus Williams to enhance training.

Dr. Brandt Skincare Needles No More "No more Baggage Eye Depuffing Gel"
$42.00 USD $56.00 CAD
Dr.Brandt has had a place on my skincare vanity in the past, all of the products delivering on the claims. The price tag may tend to be a little high, though it's worth it when you get results. This gel is meant to reduce the bags under your eyes that make you look like a bloat fish. It also works to reduce the appearance of dark raccoon eye circles. The gel acts a barrier keeping out everyday irritants and pollutants that cause your skin to age. It does contain caffeine to tighten the eye contour to prevent natural sagging. Apply this gel in the AM as needed alone or under your makeup. With the studies Dr.Brandt has conducted they reported it makes your concealer apply smoother and prevents it from creasing much like a primer would. The gel is fragrance free and is safe to use on people who are sensitive.
