Eshakti Made to Measure Dresses

Recently, I had the pleasure to review a great website that provided made to measure service on the vast array of dresses they offered.

eShakti is a women's wear website that made dresses based on your measurements.

The ordering process is very simple, you can either choose to order one of the preset sizes, or input your own measurements. Dictate the length of the garment, add or remove pockets. You can also change the design of the sleeves! A modest $7 fee is charged for custom orders.

This checkered dress is what I decided to review.

The cut and design makes it an ideal dress for the office.

The quality of the garment is very nice. Seams are lined up well and material is sturdy.

If you need something that fits to the T, and want some control in the design of the garment, do check out eShakti.

They have super fun skirts as well.

If you are going to pay over $70 for a dress, might as well make sure it fits you well.

I am so delighted to have received some sample sized YUZU AND SHISO HYDRATING CREAM from O R I Z É E, the First Canadian Natural Gluten Free Artisan Skin care line created with the enzymatic power of SakeKasu and uniquely formulated to maximize skin performance.

I have noticed that rice is used in more and more skin care products. Rice protein is said to fortify skin's structure. O R I Z É E uses SAKEKASU, which is fermented rice paste that remains after the Sake has been pressed. Nutrient dense and probiotic, it is one of the most bioavailable foods in the world. The health and beauty benefits of Sake have long been known, and it is only recently that scientists have discovered the potent power of SakeKasu as a food, a medicine and an anti-aging treatment.

What has drawn me to this line is the fact that they are hand made in small batches, cruelty free and all natural.

We already live in a chemical rich world, I want to do what I can to minimize my contact with unnecessary chemicals.

With all these said benefits, it definitely won't hurt me to give it a try.


Rice contains many minerals, amino acids, antioxidants and vitamins. This super food not only nourishes the body, but also the skin. Because of its bioavailable delivery, powerful nutrition to the skin is delivered encouraging glowing skin.

Rice, and in particular SakeKasu, play a restorative role in skin health and beauty. The fermentation of rice frees the amino acids and fatty acids through enzymatic action to effectively absorb through the outer layer of the epidermis; thereby substantially increasing skin moisture and supporting collagen production. The lipids in rice, known as Gamma- oryzanol (Rice Bran oil), are the only substance to stimulate sebum by topical application. This makes it extremely valuable as an anti-aging moisture retention agent.

When the skin produces pigmentation, melanin is activated by an enzyme called Tyrosinase. SakeKasu interferes with Tyrosinase and stops the overproduction of melanin. As the epidermis sloughs off, the skin gradually brightens and freckles and age spots fade.

SakeKasu contains three powerful antioxidants: Succinic acid, Kojic Acid and Squalene. All three help eliminate free radicals and are known for their youth preserving, skin brightening and cell rejuvenating properties. Combined with three forms of natural Vitamin E and Ferulic acid (a natural UV absorber) in the rice grain, the Orizée Natural Skincare line plays an important role in sun protection.

It has a light natural smell, and feels great against the skin.

I received a two week supply and will promptly report back on my findings after I have exhausted my supply.

Stay tuned.

In the mean time, you can check them out on their website, and facebook and Twitter @OrizeeSkinCare.

Sometimes, all I want to do is Bite my Lips

This Chanel lipstick started it all. My piqued interested in lipstick.

Besides, I was tired of having this happen.

hair stuck to lipgloss

Even though I like seeing my ample lips shiny, the having hair in front of it is probably one of my least favourite things.

It means I can never have windows open when I drive as well. It is about time to graduate to lipsticks. Still, for some reason, that just seems ever so grown up to me.

I recently reached VIB status at Sephora, WooHoo! It means I get lured in to spend even more money.

This recent promotion is pretty kick ass though, $20 off on purchases of $50 or more. Perfect for me to satisfy my lipstick cravings.

Just so happens, I have had my eyes on these guys for sometime.

The Bite Beauty Bite Size Discovery Set. For the smart shopper who wants to dabble in a little of everything before fully committing to one thing. Or, someone like me, who just wants to cover all facets of life.

Being only $29.00 dollars, I still needed to "spend" $21 or more to make my coupon eligible.

Since I am already on the lipstick trail, why not continue deeper down the rabbit hole.

So I got these beauts, too.

The final dollars were spent on a Smith's rosebud salve balm, for the lips too of course.

Even the birthday gift this year is lip related.

So let's get on with the review already.

Here are the colours against non-lip pigmented skin.

I never need to buy lipstick again, even though I have some coming in my next TooFace order. I kind of have a problem.

I do like the size of these babies, I cannot fathom finishing a full size lipstick. At least with these guys I stand a chance.

Here they are on me. I did what I could with the lighting.

Cin Cin - a orange warm playful tone

Tannin - a deep wine red that reminds me of Merlot

Shiraz - a more purple and subtle take on red wine

Musk - closest to my natural lip colour

Fig - frosty fresh pink

Retsina - something I can never pull off, but the perfect nude

Pomegranate - a bright red that is guaranteed to pop

I like the formula of these lipsticks. Feels good that they are made using organic ingredients in small batches.

The lipsticks are well pigmented. However, they don't last as long as some other red lipsticks I have tried. I love the full library of colours this line provides.

My lips did feel hydrated through out the day. These cute Bite Size Samples would make amazing stocking stuffers.

My next goal is to make Retsina work for me.

Have a happy weekend and keep on posing.
