February Empties

I finished up a ton of stuff this month. I've been on a roll!


Up & Up Strengthening Nail Polish Remover - I didn't actually finish this. I finished the Quo one from my favourites. Then I poured this one into that bottle, since I love the pump so much. I still like this stuff though. It does a good job on glitter polish. 

Another Blistex Complete Moisture.

Avon Naturals Antibacterial Hand Gel in Vanilla - I'm not a huge fan of antibacterial anything. I think it ruins your immune system, but it does do a nice job of cleaning sweaty hands before picking up my favourite book. I liked the smell; I'm not a vanilla junkie, so it was okay.

Crest Pro-Health Multi-Protection Mouthwash in Refreshing Clean Mint - I like this stuff. This was a dentist sample. I might go buy some when I'm done my current bottle.

Anastasia Clear Brow Gel - I liked this, but it's expensive. I'm trying out a clear mascara instead.

Tarte Gifted Amazonian Clay Smart Mascara in Black - One of my new favourites, but I have a ton to get through first.

Belvada Cosmetics Lash Curler - It broke. I liked it, it didn't pinch my eyelids. I'm on the hunt for a new one.


Body Shop Body Butter in Pink Grapefruit - I got this as a Christmas present couple of years ago. I didn't really like the smell, but I love the body butter from the Body Shop.

Bath & Body Works Shower Gel in Rainkissed Leaves - This was a hotel sample. I really liked this but I have tons of body wash. Maybe I'll search it out after I get through some.

Paul Mitchell Body Lotion in Lemon Sage - Another hotel sample. I liked the scent but the lotion itself was very thin.

Lush's Rub Rub Rub Shower Scrub - This was okay. It was not coarse enough for me. I like Ocean Salt better.

Aveda Caribbean Therapy Body Creme - I will be hunting this down. I really liked the consistency of this cream. My salon sells Aveda; I'll have to check for it next time.

Body Drench Hemp Moisturizing Daily Lotion - I liked the lotion but hated the packaging. It should have came in a tube. It was too thick to come out of the bottle.

Just Chocolate Shower Gel - It smells just like milk chocolate. I got this in a gift basket ages ago. I finally used it up. 


Balea Revitalizing Hair Mask in Moroccan Argan Oil - This was okay. I wouldn't buy it again.

Coolway Cool Hydrate Conditioner - This is from my Beauty Box 5 from June 2013. I didn't really like the conditioner either. I wouldn't go out of my way to buy this set. (The shampoo was an empty in January 2014.)

Paul Mitchell Super Rich Conditioner - Hotel sample. It was okay. It wasn't anything special.

Pantene Beautiful Lengths Replenishing Mask - This is a deep conditioner. It was okay. I'm looking for a new deep conditioner. 

It's a 10 Miracle Leave-In Product - I was sad when I finished this bottle. Target sells it so I'll be repurchasing ASAP.

Balea Defrizzing Hair Mask in Mandarin & Grapefruit - This made my hair feel so good! I'll be purchasing ASAP as well.


Fresh Soy Face Cleanser - Sephora sample - I did like it but there wasn't enough in the sample, so I bought a little tube of it to really give it a good try.

LeeAnni.com 3 in 1 Revolotion - This was from my ipsy bag in January. It was okay but I won't be ordering it.

Lancome Visionnaire Advanced Skin Corrector - Sephora sample- I didn't see any change in my skin in the week that I used the sample. No purchase from me.

Clinique Repairwear Intensive Eye Cream - GWP - I have an eye cream I love better.

Ole Henriksen Truth Serum Collagen Booster - Sephora sample - I found this actually did something for my skin but it was a small sample. When I do get some money, I'm going to buy a small bottle and give it a good try.


Dr. Andrew Weil for Origins Mega-Bright Skin Tone Correcting Serum - Sephora sample - I didn't see a change in my redness, so I won't be buying this in full size.

Lush's Love Lettuce Fresh Face Mask - I love this stuff. It's one of my favourites. I use this in my T-Zone once a week. I'll keep picking this up.

Clinique Liquid Facial Soap Mild - I finally finished it up. Now to find a new favourite!

A cleansing & makeup remover towelette with vitamin E from a hotel - It was okay. It was there. I needed to take my makeup off after a night out. 


I finished 5 bags of tea! I had Banana Daiquiri, Papayarama, Caramel Spice, Pumpkin Chai, and Buttercream. Papayarama was the only one I'd buy again, but it's discontinued.

February Favourites



A few new products were tried in February. I'm still working through samples, so hopefully March will lots of new things.

Essie Quick-E Drying Drops - Essie products were on sale this month and I'd never tried drying drops before, so I figured, why not? These have saved me on weekends when I do my nails. How did I live without drops before?

Michael Todd Jojoba Charcoal Facial Scrub - I've been addicted to this stuff for about a year now. It's a great deep cleanser and exfoliator. I will be on the look out for a new exfoliator though as I have to buy this one online and I'm trying to stop buying things online if I don't have to.

Sensodyne Pronamel whitening toothpaste - An old fav. that has had to return because of my random sensitivity I've had lately.

Garnier Fructis Pure Clean Shampoo and Conditioner - My fortifying hair set. My Sunday Shampoo. This stuff really cleans my hair good. I do play on trying the Aveda Rosemary Mint set after I'm done with these, just to see if a more expensive brand would make any difference.

Avon Nail Experts Instant Gel Cuticle Remover - This stuff was a huge surprise for me. I had doubts, but this stuff cleaned up my cuticles really well.

Origins GinZing Refreshing Eye Cream  - I love this stuff! I had to wait 'til I was done all of my other samples before I could use this full size one. I actually did a little dance. After just two days of going back to it, my circles are gone. This is miracle stuff.

Quo Nail Polish Remover Pump - This favourite is not for the product inside of the bottle, but the bottle itself. I love the pump! It's a lot less messy and I tend to ruin my nails less thanks to this thing.I'm going to be refilling the bottle for a very long time.

February Nail Polish Colours

January wasn't a month for polishes but February has been!


A Kiss in Paris by Cuccio Colour - Red Cream - Two coats. I'm not a huge fan of this polish. It goes on rather streaky.


GieGie by Zoya - Pink Metallic - Two coats. I love this colour. It reminds me of a lipstick I wore in high school. It could be worn with one coat if you just wanted a bit of sparkle.


Odette by Zoya - Orchid Mauve Cream - Three coats. I love the colour. I don't love how I had to put on three coats to get it to not be streaky. Pantone's colour of the year - Radiant Orchid.


Take The Stage by OPI - Red Orange Metallic - Two coats. This colour was picked out by my friend, Michael. I couldn't pick a final colour for the month, so I gave him a few to choose from. He liked this one the most. I like it too; haven't worn it in a long time.

Beauty Box 5 - February 2014

This month's box is their birthday box. They've changed their info card yet again, but I really like this one and hope they keep this layout.


Included in the February BB5 box:

  • Rockstar Nails Nail Polish in a light pink colour (no name on bottle) - sample size 1 bottle $1.87 (approx.) - full size 8 bottle kit $14.99
  • Rockstar Nails Nail Sprinkles in multi-colour - sample size 1 bottle $1.87 (approx.) - full size 8 bottle kit $ 14.99
  • John Frieda Luxurious Volume Touchably Full Shampoo and Conditioner - sample size 8.3 mL of each X2 sets $0.93 total (approx.) - full size 250 mL $6.99 per bottle
  • La Fresh Antibacterial Wipes - sample size 8 wipes $4.00 (approx.) - full size 40 wipes $19.99
  • Elizabeth Mott It's So Big Volumizing Mascara - sample size 4 mL 8.00$ - Full size 10mL $19.99
  • Coupon for $10 off at mynamenecklace.com - birthday extra
Retail value of February's BB5 box: $16.67 ($1.59 more than last month)

The nail polish I'll throw into the polish jar. The sprinkles I'll probably throw out or into the craft jar. I will definitely be trying the shampoo and conditioner, since I have fine hair and always need help with volume. Both sets of foil packets came with  $2 coupon so if I end up liking it, I'll use the coupons for sure and they're good until the end of the year. The mascara will go into the use up pile. I've been getting a lot of mascara lately, I won't have to buy full size all year at this rate. The wipes will end up in my purse after I get through all my hand sanitizer. 

What did you get in your BB5 this month? Will you use the sprinkles?

TopBox - February 2014

 My Topbox actually came early! They ship on the 15th usually, but I got mine on Valentine's Day.

I know this picture is crap, but it's actually sunny out (hence my shadow in the pic) so I rushed to take blog pictures.


Included in the February 2014 regular TopBox:
  • Estee Lauder's Double Ended Sumptuous Bold Volume Lifting Mascara and Pure Color Gloos in Rock Candy - sample size - mascara end 2.8 mL $12.15 (approx.), gloss end 4.5 mL $19.53(approx.) - full size mascara 6 mL $26, gloss 6 mL $26
  • So Susan Water-based Pure Luminizer - sample size 15g - full size 15g $ 46
  • Elizabeth Arden Eight Hour Cream Skin Protectant - sample size 30 mL $15 - full size 50 mL $25
  • Zyderma HS Clarifying Cream - sample size 30 mL - full size 30 mL $25 (you can buy in bigger sizes as well)
Retail value of this month's box: $117.68 ($79.86 more than last month!)

We got some pricey items in this month's box. I've been using the Clarifying Cream since I got it. I looked it up and it's not only for acne, but for redness. I don't see crazy results yet, so I can't justify $25 dollars for 30 mL. The mascara/gloss duo and the luminizer will go in the use up pile. I'm not sure what to do with the Eight Hour Cream. I need to do some research on uses because it's just weird stuff.

What did you get in your TopBox this month?

A Random Quote

It was Valentine's Weekend in our house and we were away for most of it. Jeeping has just come into our lives and the BF took my Dad out for the day. I helped my Mum organize my old room/ future guest room.

One of my dearest friends just posted an amazing thought and I just have to share it with the internets.

"Humble yourself, you have much to learn. You have conquered much, and you control much; but you are far from any kind of mastery of self. Everything the Lord your God speaks to you has reason; be patient and you will learn. Listen with open ears and an open heart, and you will understand. Do not criticize when you do not fully understand, for you know what it is like for those who do not fully understand to criticize you." - Michael Chow

He's an amazing person, who hopefully, I will have the pleasure of collabing with in the future.

I hope everyone had a wonderful snowy weekend.

ipsy - February 2014

My ipsy bag came today! Just when I thought I had nothing to post. My bag came three days early! It wasn't suppose to be here until Friday.

This month's theme is "The Look of Love". Pretty appropriate. I really like the bag. It's a really nice pink with a white zipper. It's pretty big, so it'll hold all my things I need to carry for going out to dinner and such.


Included in February 2014's ipsy bag:
  • Uberliss RituOil - sample size 10 mL $3.32 (approx.) - full size 60 mL $19.90
  • POP Beauty Plump Pout Mini in Peony Petal - sample size 4g $8.98 (approx) - full size 8.5g $19.08 CDN (approx.)
  • Zoya Polish in Odette - sample size 0.5 fl oz -  full size 0.5 fl oz $9.00
  • Jesse's Girl 9 Pan Eye Shadow Compact in Behind Blue Eyes - sample size 0.22 oz - full size 0.22 oz $3.99
  • Mally Beauty Evercolor Starlight Waterproof Eyeliner in Starshine - sample size 0.04 oz - full size 0.04 oz $15.00
Retail value of this month's bag: $40.29 ($1.95 more than last month)

I'll be putting the hair oil, lip gloss, and the eye liner in the use up pile. The nail polish may be going on my nails this weekend, so I'll keep it handy. I'm really not a fan of the eye shadow palette. Sponge applicator in this day in age. They really should know better. The colour pay off is really great with the darkest colours. I might give it to my Mum or maybe even trade it.

January Favourites


I thought there would be a lot of skincare in this post, but surprising, there's not.

It's a 10 Miracle Leave-In Product - I use this mostly as a leave-in conditioner/detangler, but it does SO much more. It has saved my hair from the damage that going blonde, in the summer, did.

Blistex Complete Moisture Lip Balm - My go-to lip balm. I emptied one this month and I'm working on another already.

Boscia Super Charge Overnight Moisture - I had a sample of this that I loved so much, that I went and bought a full size. This stuff has saved my skin this winter. Our apartment has been so dry that my skin is drinking this up.

Fresh Seaberry Moisturizing Face Oil - This stuff has taken my oily chin, dry cheeks, combo skin to new levels. It has balanced out my face like nothing I ever thought would. Love this stuff.

KMS Free Shape Quick Blow Dry - I have fine hair, but I have a lot of it. It takes forever to dry! I wash my hair before bed, so instead of blow drying it, I'll spray this all over it and read for awhile. My hair then will be almost dry by the time I want to go to sleep.

Tarte Gifted Amazonian Clay Smart Mascara - I'm not a mascara junkie. I'm still getting into wear it. This was the first one that I found that didn't really lengthen but gave my lashes volume. I have quite long lashes but they're thin like my hair.

Urban Decay B6 Vitamin-Infused Prep Spray - I love this spray. Not only does it prep my skin for everything going on top of it, but it has reduced the redness that I have going across my cheeks and on my skin. 

Tocca Eau de Perfume in Liliana - I'm also not a perfume person mainly because I can't wear it to and at work. I really do like this one though and I've been wearing it on nights out and one my days off. I'll probably end up buying a rollerball of it when I'm done with the sample.

Simple Cleansing Facial Wipes - I like these 'cause they get everything off. Waterproof is no match for them!

I've also been loving drinking tea again. I don't have a favourite in particular, just drinking it in general.

January Empties

This is going to be a long post since I'm been trying to use up all my samples that I've collected over the last year. I've been also trying to revamp my facial routines and I've been trying lots of new things. Please excuse the horrible pictures. I am not pro and my battery was dying so I was trying to hurry.


At the end of last year, I discovered that my teeth were getting quite sensitive. My dentist gave me a little sample tube of Sensodyne to try and see if it helped. It sure did, so I went out and bought some last week. 

I've got the Costco size Scope there. It was on sale, I was out. It's mouthwash - I'm not picky.

There's some Reach dental floss, again a dentist sample. We all need to floss.

Then there's a favourite lip balm. Good ol' Blistex Complete Moisture. I have tons of tubes of this stuff laying around my house, 'cause I'll lose one and buy another. I found a bunch and I'm trying to use it up. I will repurchase it though when I get through the ones I'm finishing up. It's a great one for the winter months as it healed windburn and great for the summer because it has spf.


Lady Speed Stick Antiperspirant in Raspberry Burst. An old favourite. I'm actually not picky with antiperspirants, I just get whatever's on sale at the time.

Avon's Moisture Therapy Hand Cream - this was a sample from my Avon sales person. I used it as a body lotion for the most part. It's pretty runny, I probably wouldn't buy it.

Davies Gate Quince Lotion - this was a hotel sample from a sister hotel we stayed at. It's okay, I wouldn't search around to buy a full size. 

H20+ Spa Sea Salt Body Wash - this sure does have salt in it. I used this after I shaved my legs one day and it found every little nick and stung! Oh man. I wouldn't go out and buy a full size just because of that. I like the scent though. Too bad.

TokyoMilk Dark Femme Fatale Collection - La Vie La Mort No. 90 Handcreme - This was a Sephora sample I got with an order. I loved the formula but hated the scent. It is rather strong and I could only use it at home because the scent lingered for awhile so I could never wear it to work.


Ojon Rare Blend Oil Total Hair Therapy - This was a 100 point perk from Sephora that I ended up using as a hair mask, since I had run out of my Roots mask. I can't really give a good review of it because of that. I'm not picky with my hair oils and I have a ton to get through, so I probably won't repurchase because it is kind of expensive.

Garnier Fructis Pure Clean Conditioner - Usually I go through the shampoo first when I buy a set, so I bought the big size of the shampoo and the little size conditioner. Not this time! I only use this set once a week, on Sundays, so I went out and bought another conditioner when it was on sale last week. Great clarifying set.

Roots Hair Treatment by Lush - I'm a total Lushie. I love this mask. I use it weekly and it helps my scalp so much! Now I'm out, and broke. My head will suffer until I can get more.

L'oreal's Mythic Oil - I got this in March 2013's TopBox. It's okay. I won't repurchase.

Avon's Advance Techniques Moroccan Oil - Another sample from my sales rep. I have a full size bottle waiting to be used from my stocking from my Mum. I'll be able to give a good review then.

Coolway Cool Cleanse Shampoo - This is from my Beauty Box 5 from June 2013. I did get the conditioner as well, but it's still in my shower. This shampoo didn't clean my hair well at all so I had to wash it twice, which is why it's finished before the conditioner. I have really long hair and use a ton of shampoo. 


As I mentioned above, I'm trying to revamp my face routine. For the last 5 years, I've used Clinique 3-step. Before that it was the Vitamin E line from the Body Shop.

So here I've got a sample trio of the dry to combo set from Clinique that I got from Sephora.

A full and travel size of the Clarifying Lotion #2.

A travel size of the Liquid Facial Soap Mild. This is the stuff that made me rethink my skincare. It has started to really dry my face out. Maybe my skin was getting too used to it.

Vitamin E Hydrating Toner - I don't feel like this really did anything for my face. 

Vitamin E Cream Exfoliator - I like a coarser exfoliator, so I ended up just using this as a daily wash. It did it's job. Nothing fancy.

Masker Aide Weather Warrior Hydrating Facial Sheet Mask - I got this in my March 2013's TopBox as well. I'm not a huge fan of sheet masks; I suck at putting them on right. This was nice, it was pretty hydrating, but I won't buy them.


Up & Up (Target Brand) Exfoliating Cotton Rounds - Where have you been all my life!? I wish they made bigger bags of these. Already repurchased.

Simple Cleansing Facial Wipes - I love these for taking off makeup. Waterproof mascara's worst enemy. Repurchased over and over.

La Fresh Eco-Beauty Oil-Free Face Cleanser Wipes - From my October 2013 ipsy bag, these were ok. I used them while we were away in the woods, so they did their job. I'll stick to my Simple ones though.


Estee Lauder Advanced Night Repair Synchronized Recovery Complex II- From November 2013's TopBox - I would totally purchase this BUT for 1 oz of this stuff it's over $70! It's on my wish list.

Origins GinZing Refreshing Eye Cream - Sephora 100 point perk - This has been the only eye cream to actually help the dark circles. I've already got a full size waiting, but I'm trying to get through the samples.

Clinique All About Eyes Eye Cream - GWP when I bought foundation once - It didn't work on the dark circles, but it moisturized. I like the Origins one better.

Benefit's It's Potent! Eye Cream - Sephora sample - It's potent all right! Too much for my eyes, stung them like crazy. I used it up, but I won't buy the full size.

Coola Mineral Face SPF 20 Unscented Moisturizer - July 2013 ipsy bag - I liked this stuff and would probably buy it if I could get it locally. There's so many I can buy here, that it's a bit pointless to buy itfrom the states and have it shipped.


Vitamin E Nourishing Night Cream - Ol' faithful, but I've found better.

Korres Wild Rose + Vitamin C Advanced Brightening Sleeping Facial - Sephora 100 point perk -  I liked this, but my boyfriend hated the rose scent. Since he's sleeping beside me when I'm wearing it, it's a no-go.

Boscia Super-Charge Overnight Moisture - Sephora sample - I liked this one too and it has no smell. I was sold. I bought full size after Christmas with a gift card I received.

Avon's Anew Rejuvenate Night Cream Sapphire Emulsion - Avon sales rep sample - It was ok, but I had already found the Boscia one at that point, I was just using up samples.


Now for the randoms! I have a ton of tea to get through so I figured I'd throw these in too!

David's Tea - Honeydew Mate - I liked this. I put this on my list to buy later. I'm not allowing myself to buy any until I clean most of them out.

David's Tea - Mom's Apple Pie - A green tea. I liked this one too. On the Buy Later list.

21 Drops Sleep Essential Oil - Sephora sample - I found this actually did help me sleep, so I bought a full size.


Now for an Unfavourite that I'm throwing out because it's THAT bad. 

Sephora's Advanced Lash Booster Mascara - This formula is so wet! It ran right off my lashes and into my eyes the couple of times I tried to use it. Even as I'm writing this post, it hasn't dried out a bit! If wet mascaras are your thing, try it out, but I'll never buy it again. It came in the lash box at Christmas from 2012 that I'm still working on.

Beauty Box 5 - January 2014

My Beauty Box 5 actually came early this month! Usually it doesn't get here until the very end of the month. I'm not complaining! I pay $12 USD so that equals out to being between 13 and 14 Canadian.

This months box was sponsored by the movie "That Awkward Moment" and the theme was Cheers to You!


Included in the January BB5 box:

  • H20 Plus Spa Sea Lotus Body Wash - sample size 1 oz $1.36 - full size 12.5 oz $17.00
  • Nubar Cuticle & Nail Oil - sample size 0.25 oz $5 - full size 0.5 oz $10
  • Swissco Bath & Shower Exfoliating Gloves - sample size 1 pair - full size 1 pair $5
  • Jergens Daily Moisturizer - sample size 1 oz $0.33 - full size 21 oz $6.99
  • Epic Blend Hemp Coconut Lip Balm - sample size 1 stick - full size 1 stick $3.39
  • That Awkward Moment mirror - press freebie
Retail value of January's BB5 box : $15.08

I don't mind travel size body wash and lotions actually. I do use them up quite quickly. The gloves I'm curious to try, since I have quite dry skin and my legs do get pretty flakey. The mirror will get the sticker scratched off and put in my purse, 'cause I don't really have one. I was kind of excited about the cuticle oil. The one I've been using for years has been discontinued so I need a new brand. The lip balm will get thrown into the use up drawer. I have lots and really I only like one Blistex one.

Do you get BB5 as well? What do you think of it?

ipsy - January 2014

My ipsy bag came the same day my TopBox did. It was a good mail day. :) I pay 14.95 USD for my ipsy bag. The dollars are changing so much that in Canadian it varies between 15-16 dollars.

This months theme was "19 Reasons". The bag itself is just okay. It smells like rubber, but would probably make a good beach bag make up bag because it seems water resistant.



Included in January 2014's ipsy bag:
  • Elizabeth Mott Smooth Shadow Pencil in Penny - sample size 0.7 g $6.99 (approx.) - full size 1.5 g $14.99
  • Nourish Organic Lightweight Moisturizing Face Lotion - sample size 0.5 oz $6.47 (approx.) - full size 1.7 oz $21.99
  • LeeAnni Eco 3 in 1 Revolotion - sample size 0.35 oz $2.63 (approx.) - full size 4 oz. $29.98
  • MicaBeauty Tinted Lip Balm in Natural - sample size 2.5 g $18.75 - full size 4 g $30.00
  • Sexy Hair Healthy Sex Hair Soy Tri-Wheat Leave In Conditioner - sample size 50 mL $3.50 (approx.) - full size 250 mL $17.95
Retail value of this months bag: $38.34

Most of this bag will go into the use up pile because I have so many of them. Copper eye colours are a dime a dozen in that drawer because I have blue eyes and all the boxes know that. I have so many lip products it's not even funny. I do use leave in treatments but I have tons! The face products will get used sooner than later; I have a special basket in my bathroom for that kind of stuff. 

Do you get ipsy? Would you like to? Please feel free to use my link! http://www.ipsy.com/r/1ltk You may even skip the wait list! If you already get ipsy, what did you get in this month's bag? Did you like the skincare version?

Topbox - January 2014

I know this is really late, but our weather has not been right for taking pictures, so here we go!

My Topbox came right on time, even with all the bad weather we've been getting. I pay $13.80 CDN for this subscription service and it is only available to Canadians.

Every January, they team up with Benefit Cosmetics and bring out a Lunar New Year box. I wished for it last year, but didn't get it. This year I did!


Included in the January 2014 Benefit TopBox:
  • The POREfessional - sample size 3mL $4.92 (approx.) - full size 22mL $36
  • Benetint - sample size 2.5mL $7.20 - full size 12.5mL $36
  • Total Moisture Facial Cream - sample size 8.9g $8.46 (approx.) - full size 48.2g $46
  • BADgal Lash Mascara - sample size 4g $12.24 (approx.) - full size 8.5g $26
  • Fakeup - sample size 0.06g $0.50 - full size 3.5g $29
Retail value of this months box: $37.82

Included in this months box was a coupon for 3000 points at Shoppers if you bought one of the products in full size. I did pick up a POREfessional, just because I have so much of the other products to use up already, I figured it would be the only thing I would actually get a chance to use sooner than later. The coupon expired Jan. 31, so that's why it's not in the picture.

The POREfessional was the real reason I wanted this box. I've been looking for a primer, and I've heard great things about it. I'm curious to try the facial cream as well because I am on the hunt for a new one. The Benetint and the mascara will just go into the use up pile because I've received those samples before and really I'm not that picky about mascara and blush products. The Fakeup may be to dark for me since I'm pretty pale, so I might just keep it for the summer, or give it to my mom, who's a touch darker than me. 

Do you get TopBox? Would you like to? Leave a comment or tweet me and I'll send you an invite! If you already get it, what did you get in yours?
