New Find On Etsy

I've been an avid Etsy shopper since around 2007, I believe when Etsy kind of first came about. I always love sharing my favorite shops and items I come across.

One great shop that I just happened to stumble upon the other night is Urbe Scarf. Within about 40 seconds I was at the check out. Now, even just looking back to get the link makes me feel regretful that I didn't purchase more of these beautiful scarves!

Zebra Scarf from Urbe Scarf on Etsy

All the adorable chic scarves are handmade by the shop owner herself, and what I feel really sets this scarf shop apart from the rest are the interesting designs of unique animal prints done in an eclectic stylish way.

There are also a great assortment of fabric jewelry which I have never tried yet, but now regret not ordering as these necklace/scarves are really calling my name.

Check out Urbe Scarf on Etsy for adorable affordable handmade accessories.


Current Favorite Beauty Product Reviews

Sometimes a girl shares her secrets and sometimes she would rather keep them to herself. Well today I am going to reveal some of my absolute favorite products that actually give me results!

EVO Fabuloso
I just started using EVO Fabuloso to keep my hair from fading between appointments. This product is truly amazing! It deep conditions as well as freshens up hair color. There's no ammonia or peroxide in it, so it's a gentle way to restore dull hair. It does come with an expensive price tag, but I feel its worth it.

Clarins UV Plus HP Multi Protection 

OK wow!!! This product is heavenly. I couldn't ask for a better sunscreen product. It works great as an everyday foundation. I don't even think of it anymore as sunscreen.
 I first got hooked on this product when I purchased it in the white cream color (neutral), but the second time around I seen they had a selection of different tones. It goes on silky and smooth, with an almost powder like finish to it. It gives you 40 SPF protection, and is a natural based sunscreen product. Highly highly recommend this lotion!

Tactuo Gel

I have been dealing with sever acne for years now, all thanks to going off the birth control pill.
 The only thing that ever worked to clear it was a prescription of Doxycycline. I knew I couldn't continue to remain on these pills as they are so bad for us, as they literally kill the healthy bacteria in our digestive system.   Anyway for the 6 months I was on the Doxy, I had also received a prescription for Tactuo Gel or Epiduo Cream if your in the United States. I never used it though as the Doxy was enough to clear my acne, but when my prescription of Doxy was done I decided to give this a try.
Well along with my insane dose of herbs I take to keep acne at bay this seemed to be doing a great job at keeping acne to a minimum and to my surprise it works like nothing else to clear my face of scars.
Truthfully in my opinion this is the holy grail of acne creams. It's expensive at $100 a tube, but well worth it. Especially knowing the emotional damage acne can do to your self esteem. You will need a doctor to prescribe it, but please run don't walk to your nearest medical clinic and request Tactuo Gel you wont regret it.


My Wonderful Evening at Diner En Blanc Vancouver

10:29 PM Daniella Bella 0 Comments

Had one of the most extraordinary evenings of my life this past Thursday when I attended Diner en Blanc Vancouver. The visuals of seeing everyone in white was spectacular and when added with such an incredible landscape and view with False Creek on one side and high rises of Yale Town on the other; it felt like something out of a fantasy or fairy tail dream.

I felt truly honored when my friend Verna had asked me to go. I read in the Vancouver Sun that there is a wait list of 30,000 people and can take 3 years to go if you register to attend. So I definitely got lucky!

I never really have too many opportunities to dress up in life, so really enjoyed having the challenge of wearing all white, and dressing so formal.

It was the first year for both of us, so we came a little unprepared when looking around in comparison to other attendees. We were one of the only pair with out wheels to haul all of our stuff in. You could imagine how hard it was for two girls to carry a table and chairs along with our picnic stuff. Thankfully a guy came to our rescue and was able to cram our stuff on his dolly...phew!!

The shuttle bus takes all attendees to a secret location. I've never been surprised before, so this made the event extra special in my mind. When we arrived on location the set up blew me away. What a great job everyone had done for this special occasion.

There were ballet dancers, along with mimes, and the Vancouver Orchestra. Not to forget the extremely talented aerial performers.

Here are some pics from the event. I really hope I'm able to attend next year, and would say if you ever get the opportunity to go...go!!!
