In My Mailbox

Fantastic week for me. Very excited to be taking part in Elle Canada's 2011 Beauty Grand Prix.  I will blog more about my experiences with it and rate the items I get to try. Right now I have 12 products to try -- all nicely wrapped so that you cannot tell what they are.  On Monday I get a log book with directions for each product and than I have to rate my opinion on them. Should be tons of fun!

This is last years ratings:

Adorable Otter key chain I got from Toronto Zoo


  1. Wow, that is awesome. Yeah, Elle!

    I read an issue of Elle Canada for the first time this summer for a school assignment. I'm thinking of subscribing to it.

  2. It's a good one, lots of pretty pictures, items you can buy in Canada and lots of great contests!

  3. Can't wait to see what you get to try in the beauty grand prix! What fun :)

  4. They are all wrapped so you cannot figure out the brand, but I do know so far

    6 Concealers
    3 Hair Masks
    3 Night Creams

    So far I am trying 1 from each category. I LOVE LOVE the hair mask and as soon as I know what it is I will pass it along

    Both the concealer (Complicated) and the Night Cream (kinda sticky ) are so so
