This will be a post completely about purses, so if this doesn’t interest you, sorry and please skip reading this! 🙂 I was wanting to find a knock of Celine bag since I can’t afford or justify spending $3,000+ on a purse. It is hard to find reputable companies that sell knock offs. There are places claiming to sell the real thing which is really a knock off but still over priced or it is a scam. I finally found two websites that had lots of reviews from blogger and youtubers. These bags aren’t marketed as knock offs,but look pretty close to the Celine bags. All of the reviews I found online had very dim photos where it was hard to tell what the bags really looked like, and I wanted them compared. So here is my comparison.
I did a Gel Nail Polish Review HERE about all the different polishes and which are my favorite. One of the commenters asked me if I had tried the CND brand. I am in no way paid by any of these companies; I am just a random person who wants to find the product that works the best for me. So I saved up and bought CND Shellac Base Coat, CND Shellac Top Coat, OPI Bond Aid, and CND Color Coat, Masquerade. I also read a review HERE from one of my favorite bloggers, and she also uses the CND brand and says it works the best for her… she does cross fit too. I have issues with being very rough on my nails. I cook, clean, wash dishes, etc. and so far the longest the gel nails have lasted was 5-6 days without an bubbling, chips, or lifting. Until now… Oh and by the way, I am not a professional.
I just wanted to take a moment and do a review of my own experiences with some of the different Gel Polish Brands. When I started looking into doing my own gel nails at home, I kept trying to find a review of the differences of some of the common brands. I never really found any because all the reviews were sponsored by one of the brands. I am not sponsored and haven’t gotten any of my polishes for free or by any of those companies. I am just showing the brands that I thought were the most affordable andÂ readilyÂ available. I got the brands below at Target, Walmart, and Amazon.com; I know that Sephora and Ulta have their own brands, but I normally don’t shop at those stores, and I just assumed they are more expensive. I could be wrong on that though.
In June of 2012, I won a giveaway on a different blog for my choice of any dress on the www.eshakti.com website. I chose one of their dresses and wore it to Heather’s Nautical Baby Shower and loved it! I was able to give my own measurements and get a custom dress which is huge for me because unless a dress is jersey or has a very full skirt, it won’t fit me. After being impressed with the first dress that I won for free, I had already emailed some of my family about it just incase they were interested. Then when eShakti approached me about reviewing one of their custom dresses of my choice in their Spring Collection, I jumped at the chance!
