March Topbox

I was actually supposed to get my Topbox in the mail last Friday, but I guess there was some complications in the process of delivery my Topbox to my house so I had to go pick it up at the post office today along with my Bhiner stuff.

Anyways here is what I got:

Aveda Carribean Therapy Body Cream - a rich body crime with Carribean mango cocoa butter and warm island aromas. The price for the full sized product is $42 (200ml) our sample from toobox is 25ml which is the perfect size for my bag! I'm really picky when it comes to hand cream just because I can't stand the sticky or oily residue and a lot of creams just gets soaked into my skin and disappears, in that case i don't see the point in using it at all because it didn't make a difference. With this one the addition of cocoa butter makes it really smooth and non-sticky, it doesn't have that oily feeling, and a little product goes a long way! I used 2 pea sized drops for both my hands. You know how some creams feel really smooth and nice until you start touching your legs or arms? You know.. Skin that you didn't apply the cream on! It feels weird like your hands are dirty. That's what I dislike! The scent is very gentle and doesn't hurt my nose.

Loreal Professional Mythic Oil - discover mythic oil - the beautifying nourishing oil for the Cleopatra in you! Full size: $26 (125ml) it says this product was made it France, I always have a thing for European products I live by hair treatments, oils and masks. Couple years ago my hair was badly damaged, long story but because of that I learnt to really take care of my hair. One thing I use in my hair routine is serums (oil form). This allows my hair to be smoother and less tangly making it easier to work with when I tie or comb through it. Loreal actually has a high end line of hair care called keratese which is really pricey, but it works wonders. in my experience no matter what you do dead hair is dead and can not be revived, in order for your hair to grow you have to get rid of the split ends. What i do is i trim my hair a little bit a month because as much as i want my hair to grow back faster i cant bare to see myself with a bob. Yes its that serious, but by doing so my hair has gotten a lot healthier and is growing back a lot faster, which means I can now trim more. Mythic oil is new to me so I will have to test this out in order to actually review it

Maskeraide hydrating facial sheet masks (I don't want to grow up) - Maskeraide is a unique line of super hydrating facial sheet masks created for fabulous lifestyles! Full size: $4.99/ sheet , $19 /4-pack This Mask claims to lift, firm and soften fine lines. I remember receiving one of these in one of the past topboxes... I still haven't tried it yet, the truth is, every time I go Asia I always stock up on masks, and now I have too much so I have to use them all before they expire and become waste.

Vera Wang - Lovestruck Floral Rush -  Lovestruck has bloomed! A sparkling floral bouquet that blooms with instant attraction. Full size : $79 (50ml), $105 (100ml) I've been a fan of Vera Wang ever since the original Princess came out. I'm a huge sucker for really sweet scents especially those with vanilla added to it. Lovestruck isn't a very sweet scent but rather a light floral scent. I feel like it is one i would wear all four seasons, something light enough for me to wear to work and yet seductive enough to get someones attention. It is definitely a very playful smell.

Hey it's Lucy!

Lucy's Eastside Diner on Urbanspoon

I've been to diners before and to be honest I enjoy them very much. The feeling of being in a diner is like being put into a time machine that been set to go back to the 50's. A time period I wished I live in, with their high waisted shorts, polka dot dresses and big hair. The time where Marilyn Monroe and Audrey Hepburn ruled the fashion and entertainment world. Speaking of which have you all seen that new commercial featuring Audrey Hepburn? I know it's a remake but it's so real it's kind of scary!!

Okay now I'm just rambling.. Back to Lucy's!

I don't go to Main often so I'm usually oblivious to a lot of the restaurants there. K and I got here at around 1am, it was my first time here, so I didn't know they open 24 hrs a day, which is amazing! I mean, how many places in Vancouver do you know that's opened past 12? It's rare!

Anyways here is the menu..  ( I was shocked to see that the majority of the menu was under $10 - you don't see that everyday, even McDonald's meals are $10+ after taxes) Sorry for the horrible quality, you can find the electronic version of it HERE.

K got the Pulled Pork Sammie with a side of fries, which I thought was just decent. The bread was super soft and fresh, but it was somewhat difficult to eat as the pulled pork was a little too saucy. As much as I like sauce, too much sauce makes the bread soggy.

Some friends recommended the Mac n' Cheese Pulled Pork Hoagie, and that's exactly what I got. With a side of tomato soup. Again the bread was very soft a fresh, the Mac and cheese was filled to the top and the juices from the pulled pork was caught by the bun. Loved, loved it! The soup on the other hand was not my cup of tea, it was a much too thick and had too much pulp so it kind of resembles apple sauce. As for the flavouring, it was a little too sour for me, if you're a fan of thick tomato soup then this would be perfect for you.

It was honestly the best hoagie I've ever had, in fact it was so good I wanted another one. But I had to control myself, so we had apple pie instead.

We ordered this last minute, so it took a while to prepare. The Apple Pie was serves along with a cup of creamy ice cream, the texture of the ice cream felt kind of like it was whipped, like melting marshmallows. The pie was filled with apples and it was just warm enough to melt the ice cream. My favourite part of this pie would probably be the apples themselves, I just love pie filling they're always so soft and sweet, and they always make my day better.

Its been 2 weeks since my last visit and I'm still thinking about it...
