Miss Fresh Review Food Subscription Box Metro Caprese stuffed portobellos

Back To School | Testing Miss Fresh’s Meals for one Week : a Lazy Girl’s Guide

True fact: I am not a great cook. There’s probably 3 recipes that I totally ace, but I usually am not super creative in the kitchen and prefer to lend a hand instead of cooking on my own (also, I could eat grilled cheese every day and survive). Nonetheless, I love to eat delicious food and I don’t hate cooking: I just don’t always have the patience, the ideas, or the time to prepare a nice meal. So I decided to try a subscription box for food, to save myself the trouble of planning meals and going grocery shopping, and decided to subscribe to one week of Miss Fresh. Advertisements

Our new Fashionable Frames by Firmoo

What’s the best accessory to pair with a gorgeous makeup or a fresh face? It probably is a nice pair of glasses, right?

Hurray for technology for making our shopping life easier than ever and saving my lazy ass too! In fact, I personally do not like to shop at the store, I feel too overwhelmed and shopping online is a lot more resourceful! Without doing test swatches at the Sephora store, I directly ordered a foundation from their site to see whether the Color IQ is really that intelligent.

Shop Miss A Double Haul!

Now that you know all about the magic of Shop Miss A (click here for review of the site), let us tell you more precisely about the products we ordered. This is what Melissa got: 2 individual eyeshadow from Princessa. One in a warm brown #836 and cool taupe brown “Clay” #819. When I received them, I found out it comes with a 2 ends applicator which is pretty cool for the price I paid. The packaging of the shadows is absolutely very cute and good quality 2 metallic liquid and pencil all-in-one After Ego from Kleancolour in silver and gold. At first, I thought it was only liquid liners. When I received them, I found out there’s a retractable pencil together! Surprise! 3 makeup brushes from e.l.f: blending brush, eyeshadow brush and a smudge brush. A matte & shimmer duo palette from Kleancolor in 02 Alluring Touch. Needed an affordable palette with neon colours. It would be nice to create a neon colour look sometimes without wasting money on expensive shadows! A nail clipper. Yes, …
