I Visited The New Mapleview Citizen Tea Store

Citizen Tea Mapleview Mall Store Review

Citizen Tea recently opened their fourth retail location.  Great for me as the newest one is in Mapleview, a reasonable distance from my place.  I prefer buying tea in person, you can see and smell it before purchasing.  If you are not familiar with Citizen Tea, it comes from the founder of Teaopia so isn’t […]

Paint it Pretty Polish Can You Make This Sparkle? Swatches

Paint it Pretty Polish Can You Make This Sparkle Holo Polish - Swatches in Artificial Light

A good red is hard to find for me.  Many give me lobster hands and as a fan of blues and purples, I am just fussier about them in general.  Maybe because growing up my dad would tell us to take off bright red lipstick or polish.  When I do wear red, I prefer darker […]

Another blue from the Paint it Pretty Polish Holographic Collection.  I Dream in Teal leans more blue on me than a true teal.  Looking at the item page, it does lean more green on them, but definitely a lighter than the darker teal many of us would think. Paint it Pretty Polish I Dream in […]
