My last earrings broke and I've been looking for new ones to replace as my daily. I found out that they have lifetime warranty which is a big reason why I bought it. Checkout my video review to see a try on and learn more about what I think about the piece I got :)

I used to have a Seagate hard drive as well as WD (no shade to these companies) but I've had issues with both of them at some point. Still use the Seagate one but I recently bought myself this small sandisk one I've seen a lot of people use. I was running out of storage on the other so I thought of switching a company and trying the SSD external drives.

This Sandisk one is first of all, so adorable (look at the sizing of it compared to my Seagate one!) SSD's are in general more expensive but as someone who does video editing I need something that is faster and more durable (I drop it sometimes.) also more compact (for travel) and it consumes less energy which is amazing because my computer battery does really fast...

Anyway, great product, super glad I got it :D

I got into looking at skincare more seriously in the past two years because I started getting acne and needed something to clean my dead skin cells etc etc. I also have had strawberry skin growing up so I've been using this bha body treatment lotion and it's been working really well! Highly recommend checking out Paulas Choice products if you haven't yet :)

I've been wanting to get headphones for a while now but didnt because I felt like they were too pricy for me. But when my earbuds broke I knew it was time...

I bought this one (linked below) for $249 refurbished rather than full price of $379 because it's basically the same thing https://www.bose.com/en_us/products/outlet/noise-cancelling-headphones-700-fr.html#v=noise_cancelling_headphones_700_fr_black

If you want to see comparison between the famous Sony XM4's and these Bose 700s check out these tiktoks I made :) or you can search up "justjoanne bose"

I am SUCH a fan of this brand (and it's not because of Selena) but just how amazing this brand's values and their products are. I'm SO glad I tried out their lipstick line. I bought their "With gratitude, dewy lip balm" and the name itself just tells you how amazing it is.

I have eczema and very dry lips so its really hard to find products that don't irritate my skin, that are hydrating, and have lasting color. I have to mention that this is not a tint so it doesn't fully stay on but I think it's already amazing as it is. The color I picked is called Support and I seriously love it so much. Its such a nice dark warm tone shade and I just love it even more as it is a dewy balm. It's also cool to see that this is made in Korea (motherland of skincare/beauty) haha. Oh and also one more bonus: it smells amazing!

Lastly,, wanna share that the design/packaging of this product is great too. Last on one end so it doesn't roll around and it closes with a magnet click (but not too strong!) seriously go get yourself one ;)

I've been seeing a lot of people talk about Pela phone cases recently and since I have a yellowing clear case I decided to try these out! I've also been purchasing from sustainable and ethical brands for clothing and thought why not for my next phone case XD The phrase Pela has on their website is "You care about the planet. Pela makes it easy to show it."

I see that Pela ships form the US but even so, free shipping can take up to 8-14 days (in addition to 1-3 processing time) At first it was a bit frustrating because I felt like my cases was never going to come but now I totally understand since they say that they "do their best to get your cases to you as fast AND as sustainably as possible!"

I have hella dry skin and sometimes hand sanitizers dry out my hands so I always look for hydrating ones~ I love Touchland because their sanitizers are sprays and not gel (which can sometimes get annoying when giving to friends, spray just makes life a lot easier lol)

Touchland also sells this little pouch which I love so much because I hook it on to my fannypack and its just so convenient! I've also got LOTS of questions and compliments whenever I take it out so yeah I'd definitely recommend buying a couple for yourself :) ps. They come in many scented flavors too

I bought some skincare a while ago that a specialist recommend and I noticed that it was a product that was harder to find but thankfully dermstore had it :) I noticed they also have other items in bundles/on sale which is great!

I would just say that at one point I needed customer support and it took a while to get to my resolution but eventually it worked out. It was just a bit frustrating but I was able to do a return and get my money back (for some other product I purchased)

I grew up with ezcema and over the last year it came back on my face which makes it very hard to put on makeup...

Thankfully I came across Tower28 and I LOVE their tinted moisturizer and balm (duo use for cheek and lip!) WOULD recommend it to anyone that has ezcema AND to those without too!

ForDays has been a brand I've wanted to try buying from because I really like their values and what they stand for. I definitely would recommend everyone to check out their website if you've thought of donating your clothes or recycling them (they do it the right way!)

Check out my video for the full review and also a try-on of one of their sweatpants that I also bought!

I have friends who wear Girlfriend collective so I thought of trying their pieces. And because they're not a fast fashion brand, they do take some time to process the orders which I understand but the shipping afterwards was a mess... Not only did processing take extra time but they lost my package and I didn't get my dress for a whole month (i think it was even longer tbh)

So that's why I took a star off bu watch my video review to see the try on and more of what I thought about the dress!

I've been wanting Alo Yoga products for a while now and saw that there was a promo so I decided to purchase one item! Really love the piece and I think the material is great.

Ordered on a saturday and got it on a wednesday so I'd say that's pretty fast (considering I bought it on the weekend). Oh also no shipping fee!

The order also came with a 30-day free trial of their alo yoga service which you an access through their alo moves app. There's actually a lot of cool classes and series I'd definitely try/checking it out!

Giving this a 4 start because I recently just got these items and so far I like them but do not have a full review at the moment.

The packaging of everything is really nice and I love the scent of their deo (i got grapefruit). Their shaving set is also really nice, material is great. Customer service is also amazing. Looking forward to continue using these products!

Giving this a 3-star rating because the lash set is SO worth it's price (can be used so many times) and also compared to another popular brand I've seen, this one gives "double the amount"
I do also have to mention that the lash glue did irritate my eye a little bit but was bareable. This is going to be the same with every lash perm set you use (if you buy from site like this or amazon even) but either way please always patch test!

Lastly, the fake lashes I received were the weirdest lashes I've ever seen. They're super long and just not the best material...

Coming from someone who doesn't bid to buy items or buy shoes often, I found it a bit tricky at first to navigate the app/site but I managed to figure it out. To be honest, I still don't know exactly how it works but I'm glad I was able to get the shoe at lower than ask(?) value.

I paid for additional shipping and it arrived fast. Shoes came in a nicely padded package and there was also a tag on the shoe meaning its been verified that it's real. (i cut the tag off in the photo) Overall would recommend others to buy their shoes (or other goods) from this site!

I tried out chef's plate a while back in Toronto Canada and I really enjoyed using their service. I got their plan with a deal which I would recommend finding to use and try out the service before committing to paying the full price (they got student discounts and always have other promos too)

They have lots of good meal plans that you can keep to remake the recipe in the future too! I did have a bit of an issue but customer service was helpful and resolved the problem. Lastly of course I have to mention that the food/sauces/meal plans tastes amazing and there are so many to choose from. Highly recommend!

I bought myself this guasha for christmas during their holiday sale and it was really worth it for the price I got it for! I've always wanted one but felt like the price was a bit over my budget. The stainless steel material is great and this one would for sure last a while. Its a bit heavy for travel but love that it comes with a little pouch!

Definitely recommend if you can get it at a discount (check amazon :)
