Adventure Time x Dr. Martens

IMG_3521

I couldn’t resist getting these awesome Adventure Time Dr. Martens. I believe they are Men’s sizes, so I sized down one when I bought one to a Size 6. There are three designs in total so far but I found this particular one the most practical, and somehow the least likely to clash with outfits.

Adventure Time teamed up with Dr. Martens for their “What do I stand for?” campaign. There’s a video for it on their official website that is adorable.

Apparently some of the designs only have around 1400 pairs worldwide. So these could be a totally exclusive and limited pair. Many of the adult sizes are already sold out in store and online.

I’ve been thinking about them since I saw the first announcement and I totally have no regrets about buying them!

 

Prints from Origrami

As much as I love the ease of digital photography, I still love the feeling of holding a photograph so I printed some of my Instagram photos through Australian site, Origrami.

They were delivered rather quickly by mail (considering I live in Canada). The photos came in an adorable camera shaped box with a branded tag inside.

I ordered the Squareprintswhich were $22.95 AUD for 36 photos. The back of the photos had either a map (if a location was tagged) or a colourful camera logo along with your Instagram likes and comments. I really loved that idea as a backside since it provided a way to make my digital memories analog!

Tetris Mug

I picked up this cool Tetris mug that changes when hot liquid is poured in it.

It looks empty when there is nothing in it. It’s still a safe game of Tetris. You can see a faint outline of where the pieces will appear when something warmer is is poured in the mug.

I used it with my Keurig machine and it was fun to see the colours slowly fade their way in. When the cup is full of hot liquid the Tetris board is now much fuller and has a higher score of 11,000!

This is 1 of 2 heat-activated mugs (I’ll show you the other one later) but now my morning coffee just got 100x more fun!

Ipsy Glam Bag – April 2015

IMG_3337

I was undecided whether to stay with Ipsy after my first bag but since I was too on unsubscribing I received the April glam bag. This month’s theme was Beautifully Bohemian. The products came in a cute straw-like bag.

Like last time, I’ve never heard of most of these brands. I am excited to try the Hikari blush which I received a full size of and retails around $15 according to their website. That alone was worth the Ipsy bag.

I received a Jorel Parker fragrance. I was really disappointed to receive this since I am sensitive to fragrances and occasionally allergic to them. There’s actually nowhere on the Ipsy profile page where you can specify your distaste for fragrances. Birchbox at least has an option to limit the amount of fragrances you receive.

I am excited to try this sample of Starlooks lipgloss which is supposed to be non-sticky and long lasting.

I also received this Hey Honey Good Morning honey silk facial serum. It’s like a light cream that goes under makeup.

Lastly was this Nude Dude eyeshadow from The Balm Cosmetics. I thought the packaging was rather hilarious!

Besides the fragrance, I was happy with the rest of my Ipsy items this month. I also subscribed to Birchbox for April but haven’t received it yet. I’m excited to compare the two in the same month.
