We recently got Emily’s newborn photos back from our baby photographer. The photos are absolutely gorgeous. The photographer provided us copies in digital format but it’s simply not the same treasuring them in a print format. So naturally we wanted to have a printed copy […]

I love online shopping. I used to share my beauty and deals scavenged on Friday Finds on another website a run called NOMSS. But since HelloNance is more beauty and lifestyle focused I thought I should share my purchases here instead. I always tell my […]

Influenster VOXBOX Spring Vibes Review

Influenster VOXBOX Spring Vibes Review

Spring Vibes VOXBOX Hellonance

I was sent the Influenster Spring Vibes VoxBox just before I went into labour. This box of goodies includes a variety of items including instant coffee, food, skincare and some press on nails. Truly a lifestyle “subscription” type box. The requirements for getting a VOXBOX is a bit vague. You can increase your social reach by 1. referring more friends to join Influenster, 2. complete campaigns and 3. share on social media.

Here’s a look at what’s inside the Spring Vibes VoxBox:

 

Nivea Q10 Firming Body Oil 

This lightweight body oil contains a mixture of oils to help your skin stay moisturized and hydrated. It is non-greasy and absorbs quickly. I started using this for my stretch marks after my 100% jojoba oil was finished. My skin feels nourished, soft and silky. My only complaint is that the fragrance is a tad too strong for my preference.

 

Ebates Popsocket

The popsocket is a nice tool to help you get a better grip on your phone – especially for taking selfies! Although I didn’t personally use this (I hate bulk on my phone), I love using EBATES! If you haven’t already discovered EBATES, you must sign up now! Ebates is an online website that gives you CASHBACK when you shop online!! There are 1000s of stores like Amazon, Well.ca, Sephora, etc. So you you are always shop online, why not get some money back? Sign up for Ebates now because you will be making money for shopping!

 

imPress Press ON Manicure One Step Gel Nails

For all your Nail Inspirations. These press on nails are the quickest way to get a perfect manicure. They are easy to apply and lasts approximately 5 days. The quality of the adhesive is also very good. ImPress Press ON Manicure comes in a variety of colors and prints.

 

Annie’s Shells & White Cheddar Macaroni and CheeseContains Real Cheese and Milk Ingredients

Did you grow up eating KD Mac and Cheese? Consider Annie’s an upgrade. Made with 80% organic ingredients with no artificial flavours, synthetic colours or preservatives. It is also made with non-GMO/GE ingredients. And? the cheese is read aged cheddar!

 

NESCAFE Sweet and Creamy
I’m a morning coffee person. I like the convenience of Nescafe instant coffee sachets. It makes morning commute easy and it is flavourful. I like that it isn’t to0 sweet.

 

Quacker Harvest Fruit & Nut Granola Bar

These granola bars are delicious and nutritious snack. These bars combine the goodness of 100% Canadian Oats with delicious premium ingredients like dark chocolate, dried cherries and apples for a tasty snack you can feel good about.

 

Arm & Hammer Plus OxiClean 3-in-1 Power Packs
I was really excited to try this brand for the first time! These packs are boosted with a stain fighting power that helps reducing the stains. I tested these with the clothes of my 2 year-old child and I was very happy with the results. It helped reducing some strong stains and it also gives a nice fresh smell to the clothes!

 

 

That’s all that was included in this Influenster Spring Vibes VOXBOX. I can’t wait for their Summer box and I hope I get selected. If you are not an Influenster yet, I highly recommend you Sign Up! Who doesn’t like getting some free samples in the mail? It requires a little participation by writing reviews but it’s absolutely worth it!

Honey, I’m Pregnant!!

Honey, I’m Pregnant!!

Ultra Sound HelloNance.com Baby Beauty Travel Lifestyle Vancouver Blog

Honey, I’m PREGNANT! Suddenly everything starts to make sense now. I didn’t just wake up one morning suddenly FAMISHED and demanded my husband to make me a sandwich (literally)!

It’s been about 2 weeks since I suspected I was pregnant. I finally told Dave! I was waiting for the doctor and the lab tests to come back first! Even though the pee-stick is 99% accurate, I needed that professional confirmation to feel certain.

It took me awhile before I realized I was pregnant – let’s say 10 weeks!

  • Sure I was late, but I’m not always on time.
  • My breasts were really sore, beyond normal PMS sore.
  • I was HUNGRY! ALL THE TIME

I’m so happy I can finally share this news with everyone now that I’m in my second trimester. It’s so surreal to see my little nugget growing inside of me. I can’t wait to feel it kick! So far, I’m happy to report that I don’t have any morning sickness… Hopefully I won’t jinx it!!!

Now I just have to be extra careful about what I can and can’t eat! Chinese culture has so many restrictions to keep your body optimal with a good balance of yin and yang!
