Removing gel nails [11 Jul 2005|01:19pm]

[ mood | hyper ]

Anyone know how to remove gel nails (w tips)? They're starting to bug me & I'm getting the urge to rip them off. I'm sure going back to the salon will result in some expensive affair & if a 99-cent bottle of acetone will do the trick then let me know!


Triple Barrel Hair Wavers/Irons In GTA? [14 Jun 2005|04:33pm]

[ mood | curious ]

I am in dire need of a triple barrel waving iron. The internet is of no help, it only directs me to American sites. I want a spring loaded one, but will settle for a Marcel version.

salon suggestions? [07 Feb 2005|09:13pm]

I've wanted to perm my hair for awhile, but I've been skeptical about it. Anyone I know who has permed their hair ended up not liking how it looked until it grew out past their chin. I'm considering it again, but I'm wondering, do any of you know of places that can perm my hair wavy like in these pictures? Price won't be much of a concern; even if I achieve this look, I'll only want to have it once. I just don't want to end up going to a salon and having them perm my hair into little ringlets.

Lots of new stuff added to my VIRTUAL GARAGE SALE! (LOCAL) [06 Jan 2005|06:17am]

Added almost 30 new items to the list (now equalling over 100 misc items in all!).....take a look and if you are interested in anything at all, please email asap (all info on sales, shipping, contact, etc. are included in the "For Sale" post...)

Click Below For The Massive "For Sale" Post!

Thanks in advance! (and a really big thanks to everyone who bought stuff the first time around :-))


[Posted here because I'm local and I have some beauty/fashion items for sale...and that means far cheaper and faster shipping :D]

Well, I've cleaned out my apartment like heck...and have a whole bleeping bunch of stuff to sell (and I mean all kinds of stuff, both lightly used and brand new (mostly brand new!). There is literally TONS of stuff (I think there's almost 100 things on this list!) It's literally taken me DAYS to photograph, write up and just get all this stuff up.... :O

Anyhow, all money from sales will go towards my needy savings account [in order to help me with my move to a new place in a few weeks (thanks to everyone here who gave me advice!)...but wahh, I need to buy furniture and have rent and stuff :-/]...so pretty please, if anyone out there sees ANYTHING they like PLEASE don't hesitate to contact me, asap!

I've given some base prices for each item (based on what I think is fair/a good deal) but those prices are just guidelines....feel free to make me an offer on any item(s) as well.

Please email me at: fourballoons@hotmail.com if you are interested in anything or have any questions or inquiries. Please include the name/description of the item that you are inquiring about (for easy referance and so I can answer your question/know what item you are speaking about). Feel free to request better photos of specific items, as well.

NOTES: everything is in US prices (made it easier for me so I could cross-post). I accept Paypal, money orders and well concealed cash (at senders own risk). PayPal is much prefered though.

And to those local (I am in Ontario), I CANNOT allow pick-ups. I've had a bad experience with that, so I no longer allow it. Shipping should be dirt cheap anyway, if you are local. Sorry for the inconveniance.

Thanks in advance and happy holidays!!!!

Hair brush [28 Sep 2004|01:31pm]

[ mood | curious ]

Hello all!

Where could I find a good quality hair brush? I have long hair again after growing it out
and would like a decent one, I'm willing to pay extra for the quality rather than
quantity. I was told Trading Secrets have good ones? Has anyone purchased their brushes from there?
I live downtown. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated! Thanks! :)

EDIT: I have thick straight hair if that helps! *blush* :)

Hotel & Spa [12 Aug 2004|02:29pm]

Hi girls,

I am not sure if this is the place I should ask this question ... but I am planning a bridal shower/spa day for my friends and we are looking for a good and reasonably priced hotel in the downtown area (near the clubbing area preferably) and also a good spa which is reasonably priced massages too ... any suggestions are welcome. Thanks in advance! ♥

Very Long, Wavy, Hot-Pink "Showgirl" Wig For Sale [28 Jun 2004|08:59am]

[Hope this isn't against the rules--if so, please delete and accept my apologies]

I have this exact wig (long, wavy, full, excellent quality), brand new, never worn (only tried on for like 2 minutes..), that I didn't end up using for a cosplay, and since it cost me an arm and a leg, I figured I'd try and sell it to get at least some of my money back. (because I need extra money, like, NOW)

Here is a link to it at the original American website I got it from:

[NOTE: The pink shown in the photo though is NOT the shade of pink of the wig *I* have--the one pictured is more of a pale/washed-out pink, the one I have is more of a vibrant pink]

So, if anyone is interested (or anyone you know is interested), please email me at: hellbelles@hotmail.com. We can work out a deal (price is flexible-make me an offer).

Hi, I just joined, so I don't know if anyone has posted about this already but they're planning on opening a Sephora in Toronto!

How do I know? Oddly I was searching through Hotjobs.ca and I noticed these listings

job 1

job 2

I'm excited! If you read the second job listing it says they're planning on opening 5-8 stores here!
(Again, I apologize if anyone has already posted about this)

Avril's eyes [27 May 2004|02:21pm]

[ mood | curious ]

Does anyone know which MAC eye product Avril Lavigne has been wearing everywhere lately? I'm thinking a pigment, but I'd like to know which one. It's kind of a deep, dark reddish pink. I am assuming it's MAC since I know she's partial to MAC (aren't we all?!).

FACES Makeup:: [27 May 2004|12:47pm]

[ mood | curious ]


I'm just curious...

FACES makeup has been my buzz lately for foundation, few products match my olive skintone heh, they have a vendor type store at Dufferin Mall across from the Wal-Mart there. I live downtown so it's sort of out of my ways. Also, they tend to run out of the foundation I usually buy. Is there any FACES makeup store locations downtown?
If so, please let me know!

Thank you! ~Alitzia~

Here's a picture from a wedding I went to last month with some FACES Makeup and Rimmel hehehe.
