- - Photo A Day Challenge | May 2014 - -

Hi friends!

This month I continued participating in the monthly photo a day challenge hosted by Chantelle of Fat Mum Slim.

The concept of this photo challenge is simple: take a picture a day that corresponds with the guiding prompts (see below) and then share it with the #FMSphotoaday hashtag.

To be completely honest, I didn't finish this month's challenge either. I tried though, and that's what counts!

You can check out the days for which I took pictures right after the jump...

- - Monthly Manicures | May 2014 - -

Hey friends!

Did you see? I am now on Twitter! If you'd like, you can follow me: @MagnifiqueRoad.

I'm also in the process of making Magnificent Road more user-friendly. I've added a search feature on the top left of the page (little looking glass icon) to help you find stuff quicker (provided that I actually have that stuff!).

Now, onto the matter at hand - my manicures for May! Check those out after the jump...

- - Teacup Tuesday | Week 1 - -

Hey everyone!

I have decided to start up a weekly series called Teacup Tuesday. The concept for this series came to me when I was brainstorming " _____-a-day" ideas that I could start up. Trying out a new tea every day for a month and then documenting it sounded like a great project, but I wanted to keep things casual and nonobligatory. Instead, what I'm doing is this - every Tuesday I will give you a recap of the various kinds of new teas I tried the week prior. I'll include tons of pictures and hopefully we'll get to talk about tea together in the comments. :)

Let's take a look at the teas I tried this week after the jump...

- - Influenster | Broadway Nails imPRESS Press-on Manicure | Over the Moon Review - -

Disclaimer: I received this product complimentary from Influenster for testing purposes.

Happy Wednesday!

I'm back today with part two of my review of the imPress Influenster VoxBox that I received last week. Although there were variations in designs, everyone who received this VoxBox got two press-on manicures. Mine were Dancing Queen and Over the Moon. I've already tried out Dancing Queen a few days ago and now I wanted to show you how Over the Moon worked out for me.

I'll show you what happened right after the jump...

- - Influenster | imPress Manicure VoxBox Review - -

Disclaimer: I received these products complimentary from Influenster for review purposes.
Hey everyone!

Last week I opened up my mailbox and was pleasantly surprised to find a small Influenster VoxBox there. I knew that Influenster was preparing to send out the very first Canadian VoxBoxes because I was emailed a questionnaire that would determine my eligibility for one. But I never received a tracking number (until this week, haha) or anything , so I had no idea what this mysterious white box was until I saw the "Influenster" sticker on it.

As with most of my reviews, this will be a lengthy and picture-heavy post.

Let's take a closer look at what was inside the VoxBox right after the jump...

- - Julep | The Vivid Collection | Boho Glam | April 2014 Maven Review - -

Hey, hey!

First thing I would like to draw your attention to - Julep has altered the rules for their subscription service. You can either look at my brief overview after the jump or check out Julep's blog post about the matter. The changes affect Mavens signing up for Julep after April 29, 2014.

Moving on - I'm soo behind in my reviews...forgive me! I'm slowly working through them though. Today I have for you a review of last month's Vivid Collection from Julep. Even though I had a birthday in April, I decided to keep things simple and (fairly) cheap, so I chose the Boho Glam profile with Kayla and Tatum as add-ons.

- - Julep | Golden Ticket Mystery Box - -

*Please note that you don't need to have a Julep subscription to be able to purchase mystery boxes.*
Hi friends!

Have you ever read or watched Charlie and the Chocolate Factory? Remember how there were golden tickets to be found in chocolate bars? Well Julep is playing with a similar idea for their latest batch of mystery boxes.

For $24.99 (US) you are able to get a box with $100+ worth of unknown Julep goodies (nail polish and beauty products) AND have a chance at drawing a golden ticket that unlocks the prestige of having a nail polish named after you.

There are three boxes to choose from and there is a total of three golden tickets to be found.

Compared to the mystery boxes of the past few months, I'm actually pretty excited about these mystery boxes. Read further to find out why...

Hello, hello!

Today I have the last review of my Julep Lucky Mystery Boxes that I purchased back in March. For $24.99 (US) you were promised to receive a box with $100+ worth of mystery Julep goodies. You can find my reviews for two other boxes below:

- - Photo A Day Challenge | April 2014 | Week 4/4 - -

Hey everyone!

I've got a confession to make - I didn't end up finishing the April photo challenge. For some reason I just lost steam at the end of the month and decided that I was skipping way too many days to catch up. What I am going to show you are the remaining photos I have from April.

The concept of the Fat Mum Slim photo challenge is simple: take a picture a day that corresponds with the guiding prompts (see below) and then share it with the #FMSphotoaday hashtag.

Just as a reminder, here are the prompts from April:

Dear readers,

Today's post is also going to be very brief since April was a stressful month and I just didn't feel up for giving myself manicures. I wont leave you without a Monthly Manicures post though! I'm going to show you guys two designs/nail polishes that I tried out early in April.
