Classroom Attitude 101- Back to School Series!


Okay so it’s B2S [back-to-school] all over again. Yes, contain your groans- I know the feeling all too well. But with the right attitude and positive mindset-not to mention a few important tools and tips, you can definitely do it all- and enjoy it too. Okay, I did get a bit carried away there but you get my point.

I already have a popular B2S playlist here [forgive the crappy quality btw] on my channel but this year, Paris and I are gonna be adding loads more videos to it so be sure you’re subscribed so you won’t miss a thing!

Hope you enjoy and good luck in the new semester!

Hairfinity- Healthy Hair Complex Review


Hello my beauty lovers!

I’m currently in the lovely NYC and I absolutely love it here. I’m so happy and my hair is as well. Why? Well for the past month, I’ve been taking Hairfinity which is a healthy hair supplement -emphasis on the supplement part. The reason why I love this so much is exactly because it’s a dietary supplement and not any kind of drug or product that will drastically alter your natural body chemistry- cause I’m not a huge fan of anything like that. It contains 18 amnio acids and for those of you who know a lil biochemistry, some amino acids are not made in the body and are required through the diet. Realistically, do we eat food that will adequately fulfill all our nutritious needs- vitamins and minerals required? Yea, didn’t think so.  And of course if you also didn’t know, our hair is essentially protein and protein is made of amino acids- are you following me now?

Daily supplement to be taken x2 daily

Hairfinity is rich in these amino acids which means that your hair will be getting all the nutrients needed to make it strong and healthy. And not only does it contain those amino acids, but it also has sulfur and collagen. Sulfur is used in the very same protein synthesis- hence it’s also referred to as the ‘building blocks of hair’- and collagen sheaths your hair, connecting it to tiny blood vessels which help to deliver nutrients for thick, healthy hair. This makes it an all around ideal dietary supplement not only for your hair- but for your body in general! It’s like they say- a beautiful you starts from the inside out- something I firmly believe in. So instead of slathering on gels and creams and all of that, try Hairfinity and take a new approach- from the inside out.

Loving how healthy glossy my hair looks since I've been taking Hairfinity

Loving how healthy glossy my hair looks since I’ve been taking Hairfinity

Personally for me, my hair has grown a bit but it was just one month since I’ve been taking it and I have 2 more to go so definitely you’ll be seeing some before and after pictures very soon. Besides the length though, what I have noticed is that my hair has been looking so much healthier and glossier since I started using Hairfinity so it’s definitely doing something and I’m loving it! Stay tuned for more updates! XO, The Classy It Girl!

Love & Beauty by Forever 21- Review


Love & Beauty is the well thought out section of the beloved F21 brand-and who could blame them? It’s one heck of a brilliant idea to have a beauty line to go hand in hand with the already thriving fashion aspect of the brand. From beauty bags to falsies and even eyelash curlers, the Love & Beauty section is where you need to be.

On my vacation, I find myself being drawn to F21 not for clothes- but for Love & Beauty. I picked up these products and I just had to let you guys in on my juicy little finds and also because a ton of my viewers requested me to do a review when I hauled them earlier this month. And, at the rate I’m going, I might just end up with the entire collection and I mean can you blame me? The packaging of everything is the definition of chic, classy and girly. Be sure to check out the video below for swatches and details!

First up and my favourite are the lipsticks. I mean hello!? The packaging is totally swoon-worthy and what made me pick these up in the first place. It’s a rose gold toned casing which is clear at the bottom so you can immediately see the shade of the lipstick. This is so important to me because when I’m in a rush, I can’t find it in myself to look for all the names of the lipsticks so I can see which is what- like those M.A.C. lipsticks. You know the feeling?

Love & Beauty Matte and Crème Lipsticks

Love & Beauty Matte and Crème Lipsticks

The fact that they have the option for matte and crème lipsticks are hugely impressive and very much fancied by me since I am obsessed with matte lipsticks most of the times and then there’s the occasional need for a crème one. Yes, I’m very picky.

Next up is the Face & Glow Kit which to me, closely resembles some aspects of the Urban Decay Flushed Palette. It has a bronzer, highlighter and blush and a super sleek packaging which I love.

My final makeup product (for now) was the Sun Kissed Eye Palette [seems to be only available in Canada] which again, had very similar shades to some of the NAKED palette from UD. They were very pigmented but a bit powdery but I have been using them for about a week now and I am really loving it. It’s easily my go to eye makeup palette right now.

10 Minute Memebox Review-Korean Beauty Products?!


So I may have a slight obsession with beauty subscription boxes and I mean can you blame me? I love makeup and beauty products and having the chance to try out new things every month is so much fun. But you know what’s even more exciting? Trying out high-end beauty products from a different country and culture altogether.

The Memebox ‘subscription’ box is not like the others you’re accustomed to. You don’t have to sign up for it or anything like that. Basically, you can just choose the box you’d like and then purchase it- but you have to be quick because they go really fast! And I mean who could blame them? Do you see the packaging of the products?!

Also, unlike most subscription boxes like Ipsy or Boxycharm, this one ships to about 45 different countries which is unheard of in the world of beauty subscriptions and this my friends, makes me so happy because it means that so many of YOU who live in different countries besides the US can finally have a chance to revel in the excitement as well. Check out Memebox to see if your country is on the list.

Anddd another thing is that there are different types of boxes that you can get. For instance, I got the 10 Minute Memebox, but there’s also the option for the Superbox and the Luckybox.

Here are products- all full-sized btw- that I got in my first ever Memebox!

As you can see from the video, the box I got was super hot pink and gorgeous! And the packaging of everything was to die for.

A first glance of what's inside the box

I should mention that because the products are Korean, I can’t understand a thing on the packaging but thankfully it comes with a little card with a little explanation of the products you got-in English. These are synthetic doll-like lashes which will definitely be coming in handy for Halloween tutorials in the future!

Strangely enough, this was the one thing that I thought I wouldn’t have liked and now…I’m addicted and I find myself crawling back to my apartment every time I forget to put it on. It’s almost ridiculous that I’m addicted to this oil! I’ve also got a weakness for the slim-rollerball-type kind of perfumes because what can I say, I love travel sized friendly goodies.

The fragrance is a pheromone perfume which contains a yummy melody of scents such as raspberries, violet, fresh grapefruit and vanilla and best of all, it lasts all day. Yummo!

For my hair, I got this Sweet Romance Hair Perfume and I adore the packaging because it’s super fun and girly. Since it’s a perfume, I thought it would have been something to spritz into your hair but it’s in a serum form which I love. I just pump a bit into my hand and run it through my hair and not only does it smell amazing but it makes my hair look glossy- which is expected since it contains ingredients like aloe vera, ginseng and grape seed oil that helps to nourish and strengthen your hair.

Hope Girl seems to be a brand with the best packaging I’ve seen in a while- I mean sleek gold and leopard print? #LOVE

The body powder is the one and only thing from this box which I won’t be getting a lot of use out of because I’m not a fan of using powder on my body- in fact, face powder is the only powder that ever graces my skin. But for those of you who use powder, you’ll love this one and not only because of the packaging and yummy smell, but it’s a silica powder with sweat absorbing micro particles that will help you stay nice and fresh all day.

Why hello to my favourite lipstick and packaging like everrr! I was so pleasantly surprised my the luxurious formula of this lipstick- it’s legit like no other that I’ve ever used. The ‘balm’ quality gives it an amazing moisturizing feeling and then the pigmentation OMG it’s insane and it lasts a heck of a long time! I’m definitely thinking about getting some more of these!
