Bella and Bear Eyelash Curler- Review and Giveaway

I have another eyelash curler that I rarely use, because it really doesn’t work very well. I had the chance to try this one, by Bella and Bear, so I jumped at it.

Girls, Want Lovely Lashes?

It’s a shame for you not to have curly, dramatic lashes when this little tool does it so easily!


No pinch no pain curling

Non slip handle

Ergonomic design, to get every lash

The Eye & Mighty eyelash curler lifts and curls like no other eyelash tool. You will know that you have found “the one The spring loaded handle means you get a lot more lift with less pressure, say goodbye to straight lashes and hello to sexy curvy eyelashes!

How To Use The Curler

With eyes wide open, position the lash curler at the base of your lashes

Gently squeeze and hold for 10 seconds

For added drama add 1 coat of mascara for a pretty daytime look

2 coats for a dramatic look

Voila, curly, dramatic lashes!

I love this lash curler! First of all, look at this cute little box is comes in!

IMG_0871The box is so pretty and girly, and they are very secure and protected.IMG_0872The curlers themselves are heavy duty! There is one bottom cushion, and they curl like noone’s business!

I have a confession to make. I have always curled my lashes while looking in the mirror, and I pinch my eyelids. Every. Single. Time. These curlers don’t pinch, and I found if I look straight ahead, without a mirror, I do a better job of curling, and no pinching! I also have some wonky lashes that just would not curl with other curlers, and these get those stubborn ones. I am very happy with them!

So if you are looking for an eyelash curler that really works, this is the one you should try!


Would you like to win a pair of your own?  Leave a comment on anything! The color of the sky, your favorite animal, etc. I will pick a winner in a week!


I received one or more of the products mentioned above for free using Regardless, I only recommend products or services I use personally and believe will be good for my readers.

Monthly Sub Monday- Birchbox

I cancelled Birchbox awhile back, I don’t remember why, but I decided to try again this month. IMG_0716The box was pretty, but was the inside good?IMG_0715Let’s see….IMG_0721A tiny little bottle of Temptu luminizer.IMG_0722 (1)Looks very orange to me. I won’t ever use it.

Laura Mercier mascara sample.IMG_0719This is a decent mascara. I will use it.

Shiseido Skin Serum

IMG_0720Shiseido is a great brand. Considering you only need small amounts when you use serums, this is a decent sample. I’m definitely going to use this.

Yu-Be Moisturizing Skin Cream

IMG_0718This is a teeny sample tube. Not even big enough to use and get benefits from.

Davines Shampoo, Hair potion and Conditioner.

IMG_0717This bothers me. Two foil packs, shampoo and hair potion, and a much bigger deluxe sample of conditioner. It would seem more logical to include a larger size of the shampoo with the conditioner, and have the foil pack of the potion. I mean can a person really tell how effective something is from a foil pack?

This box was a bit of a bust for me. The mascara was nice, as was the Shiseido serum, but the rest are things you could likely get from Sephora or Ulta for free with a purchase.

I am going to give Birchbox one more chance, and then I might be done with them, again.

*This was purchased by me, for my own use. My opinions are my own.*


Beauty Blogazons Weekly Roundup!


Monthly Sub Monday- The Craft Vapery

I am learning through this blog that there are SO many cool subscriptions out there. I recently found one caters towards the people who Vape.

The Craft Vapery:


CRAFT VAPERY was founded by a team of seasoned entrepreneurs with an unrelenting passion for vaping. It was this passion, however, that also led to our frustration with what appeared to be the typical vaping experience: a daunting, confusing, time consuming, and costly process that required far too much education, research, trial, error, and waste.

We knew there had to be a better way. Armed with highly complementary skills and perspectives, a wealth of vaping industry expertise, and a fierce commitment to quality, we set out to build a company that we wished had existed when we started vaping. CRAFT VAPERY was born, and our mission was simple: to continuously innovate and improve the vaping experience.



Our first innovation was to launch the original curated vaping subscription, which aimed to deliver the simplest, most accessible, most personalized vaping experience in the industry. We wouldn’t rest until everyone, everywhere could enjoy access to the very best vaping liquids. After months upon months of rigorous research and testing, we began to carefully build out the most comprehensive selection of top quality liquids in vaping. Each month, this selection expands as we discover and evaluate emerging brands and flavors.

But we didn’t stop there. We knew firsthand that no matter how good a liquid was, everyone’s tastes were different. To truly deliver the highest quality vaping experience possible, we would need to match our customers with the products that best suited them. We pioneered a simple and intuitive curation engine that helped us hone in on each subscriber’s preferences. This enabled our team of expert curators to hand-select the right box for each individual subscriber, month in and month out. Quality, personalization, and convenience could now be a part of any vaper’s experience, with the added benefit of significant cost savings versus traditional brick-and-mortar and e-commerce.


Creating the industry’s first curated and personalized vaping subscription was just the beginning. Next, guided by the same fierce devotion to quality that had set us apart from day one, we began focusing on building the industry’s premier online shopping destination: one central location where new and experienced vapers alike could discover, learn about, and shop only the very best that vaping has to offer.

Applying the same rigorous standards for quality that we established in our subscription service, we started testing and building out our selection of the industry’s finest hardware and accessories. As is the case with our premium liquids, our hardware and accessories offerings will continuously broaden as our experts unearth and evaluate new vaping products. With a selection that helps bridge the gap between products for beginning vapers who need guidance getting started, and products suited for only the most advanced and discerning vapers, the CRAFT shop makes buying the best vaping products easier, more fun, and more rewarding.


The products in our shop are available to all, and we work hard to ensure that our pricing is amongst the most competitive in vaping. However, we have taken this one step further by again leading the way towards a new industry paradigm: membership. All CRAFT VAPERY subscribers are automatically enrolled in our membership program, CRAFT SOCIETY, and enjoy significant benefits, including:

  • MEMBER PRICING: 5-10% discounts on virtually everything in our shop.
  • FREE SHIPPING: On all domestic orders over $35.
  • EXCLUSIVE BENEFITS: Preferred access to limited-run products, special promotions, and members-only giveaways.
  • CRAFT CARE: Have a question? Your personal vaping concierge has the answer.


CRAFT CARE is a one-stop concierge service that is on call to assist our members with all of their vaping needs. CRAFT VAPERY has become synonymous with incredible service, and the fine ladies and gentlemen of CRAFT CARE are the reason why. Whether it’s refining your flavor profile, troubleshooting your hardware, or simply discussing the latest and greatest vaping products, our CRAFT CARE specialists are always just a phone call or email away.

But CRAFT CARE isn’t only about impeccable service. It’s about setting new standards for the industry, and taking an active role in determining its future. It’s about leading the way in how people are educated and informed about vaping. It’s about making vaping less confusing and more inviting. Be sure to visit our help page and blog for a constantly expanding resource of useful information and intuitive videos.


CRAFT VAPERY will never stop seeking to innovate and improve the vaping experience. We are incredibly proud of our contributions to this young industry, but we also know that there is so much more left for us to do. No matter what, we will always seek to be on the cutting-edge, helping to create new products and services that not only contribute to the vaping experience, but to society as a whole. If you love what we’re doing now, just wait until you see what we have in store for the future. Exciting things are on the horizon…stay tuned, CRAFT VAPERS!

Let’s check out what I got!


IMG_0812IMG_0811Isn’t this vaping pen so COOL? It looks like a robot! It is heavy, sturdy, easy to assemble, and rechargeable. They even included an adapter to charge it in the car!

I also received four vaping liquids in varying flavors.


IMG_0813The description for this one is: “Natural blueberries baked inside light cream scones and topped with a with a tangy creme fraiche coconut milk glaze.” To me, it smells like blueberry muffins! It smells REALLY good and the taste is not half bad. I really like this one.


IMG_0816This one is fruity. I don’t know how else to describe it. It smells really good, is smooth and the taste is nice.

Mudslide:IMG_0815This one is true to it’s name, a Mudslide! Coffee and irish cream. It is rich, and yummy. I REALLY like this one.

Cafe Royal:

IMG_0814This one smells and tastes like a sweet cup of coffee. I REALLY like this one too.

I found this service to be fascinating, and I have friends who Vape, and love it, so I had to try it. I sent them a list of my likes and dislikes, and ordered mine with 0% nicotine. They really did well choosing flavors for me. They listened to my preferences and got it right on the nose.

I have to admit, this is kinda fun. My hubby is a pipe and cigar smoker, and it is fun to hang out with my hubby with my vape and just talk and spend time together.

So if you are a vaper, and would like the convenience of having the supplies delivered straight to you, once a month, this would be a great service for you!

*This box was sent to me free of charge, for review. My opinion is my own, always.*
