I’d love to follow everyone from here so leave a comment and let me know you’re from WordPress! I’ll follow you back! I’m very new to the whole Instagram blogging thing so I want to get caught up! 😁

Also that is indeed the Lush 12 Days of Christmas gift box 🎁 and yes a review will be coming soon for it! 🎉

How is your week going so far?

Fun question of the week: My brother thinks you should wait until December 1st before you drink any eggnog or listen to Christmas music. Do you agree?

(I’m on the opposing side since I’ve already been listening to Christmas music a bit and had eggnog :p)

March Favorites!

Hello lovely people and welcome to my March favorites! I must admit I am impressed with myself getting this uploaded within the first week of April, rather than the first few weeks. Don’t mind me as I pat myself on the back just a little haha. Must get better at this whole organization thing.

Alright, let’s cut the faffing about and get right into it!

March faves

💋My first favorite is a lush product. I know, shocker *sarcasm*, and it is the ‘Bunch o Carrots’ reusable bubble bars. These delightful little bars are by far one of my favorite lush scents ever. They are fruity and sweet, but also light. I bought them a week before easter, and I still have all of them. They give off amazing bubbles just by running them under water, so they last forever!

💋 NYX Matte liquid foundation. This was a purchase that I was on the fence about. I’m sure we all know the difficulty of picking a drugstore foundation. I do not live anywhere near ‘higher quality’ makup stores, so I’ve become quite an expert (sorta) at perusing through drugstore makup and finding the best formulas possible. This is by far my new favorite drugstore foundation! I realized my last foundation was almost just a teeny bit too dark. My skin tone tends to waver on the cusp of two tones and this foundation is the right one for now since I’m much paler after winter. My other foundation will be great for when I get more sun (which should be soon :p)
Getting back to my point, this foundation is high coverage, but still looks good just using a little, and can still be layered. Five stars and I’ve actually been using it almost every day. Big wow!

💋Rimmel Match Perfection Concealer.
I bought this because one of my favorite YouTubers (Tanya Burr) used it in a recent tutorial, so I put some faith in her and was not disappointed in the slightest. In fact this may just bump the Wake Me Up concealer out of the #1 spot. Sorry Wake Me Up, its time to step aside 😂
The Match Perfection is both a concealer and a highlighter. I use this on those particular early mornings to help look…well a little more ‘alive’ let’s just say. It blends like a dream, and I haven’t had any problems with creasing, as well as it lasting through out the day.

💋 Bath and Body Works, Tahiti Island Dream body mist. There’s not much to say about this besides the fact that I love this scent. Its like fresh tropical air, condensed, and I just want to spray it everywhere and smell it forever. :p

💋 Loreal Paris Brow Stylist Definer. When I bought this product it was more out of curiosity than actual necessity. I always found brow pencils to be very rough to apply, and once you finally get into apply, it somehow ends up too dark. However this has restored my faith in the brow pencil. Its a softer pencil and the pencil itself is very thin making it so easy to define your brows however you like them. I have heard from many people it is a perfect dupe for the Brow Whiz by Anastasia Beverly hills, bit I’ve not tried that product, so I cannot vouch for that, but maybe any of you can? Let me know in the comments 🙂

💋 Revlon ‘Just Bitten’ Kissable lip balm stain, in the color 040 Rendezvous. Since spring is here I’ve delved into more orange shades of lipsticks and thud has come out on top as my favorite! The color makes me feel so bright and springy, and it also has incredible moisturizing properties. It has the color hold of a lip stain, but is lip friendly like a lip balm. It is also a really refreshing peppermint scent, and adds a cooling sensation to the lips.

💋NYX Xtreme Lipcream in ‘CandyLand’. This is one of the cutest colors I have ever worn. The perfect baby pink liquid lipstick. It has the hold of a liquid lipstick and the shine of a lip gloss. And that makes me one happy gal!

💋Bath and Body Hand sanitizer in Cinnamon Spiced Vanilla. This is a very funny favorite to me, however there is a cold sweeping through my town so I tend to obsess over having clean hands. This does exactly that. It has been living in my purse, not to mention it smells like some freaking amazing cookies.

So this is all of my favorites of March! When I started to make my list in the beginning I thought to myself ‘I don’t really have that many new favorites’, but like usual as I looked through my makeup bag and purse, I remembered all the products I’ve been casually obsessing over hehe.

So I hope you enjoyed this post! Let me know if you have been loving any of the same products, or what your favorites are! I love to hear from everyone! 🙂

I always like doing these kinds of posts because a lot of the products I enjoy are very affordable and usually from the drugstore. I just remember/know what it’s like being interested in makeup, but feeling so out of your league as where to start. And I know what its like to nervously look through the aisles and aisles of products hoping you buy something good. So any help that I may be able to provide makes me happy!

As usual, I hope you’re enjoying your day! Thanks for reading!

Teeny Tiny February Favorites!

Hello lovely people!
Its me! Remember me? I used to write on this blog a lot and I’ve been gone for what seems like an eternity? (I’m only kidding)
Its good to be back in the blogging spirit!

And it traditional blogging ways I have with me a monthly favorites post!
I’ve called it a teeny tiny favorites, since it is definitely noticibly smaller than mine in January.
I guess after Christmas I had lots of goodies gifted to me, and it being my first favorites post, I had a long list. Now I try to always share new info (no matter how small :p), so I guess I’ve just been a little stingy on buying new products.

Now enough with the jibber jabber. Here they are!

image

❤ My first favorite (and the biggest) are some little Tom’s I got for running errands and whatnot. They have saved my life many times this month when I didn’t want to wear uggs, and no interest in wearing heels. Insert , Tom’s to the rescue!

❤ Beautiful Day, Bath and Body Works Candle.
This is honestly just a beautiful looking and smelling candle. Its delightfully floral, but also fresh and light!

❤ Nivea Men Aftershave Balm.
This was a buy completely influenced by the wonderfully talented Nikki of Nikki Tutorials on YouTube. She raved about it in many of her videos, calling it the perfect makeup primer. So I went on a hunt to find it, and I have not been disappointed since. It smells great, and keeps my makup on point all day. 👍
Go check out her YouTuber channel you will not be disappointed!

❤ Real Techniques Beauty Blender.
Okay, so I’m fairly late to the party on this one, I know. I live in a small town away from any Sephora’s or anything so finding a good dupe for the real deal took a while. But I found it! And it gets 10/10. The only thing is the cleaning process of it. It doesn’t quite come perfectly clean in the end, but the quality makes up for it. 🌟

❤ NYX brow pen.
I am one of those people that cannot manage under certain pressure. Namely, needing to quickly fill my brows in before a night out. This little handy tool has made that process so much simpler! Its literally just like drawing your eyebrows in with a pen. I like to do it more natural and not to sharp of a line, and the colors they offer work well blending into your natural brow.

❤ 3 Clinique products:
Charcoal face wash from men’s line, Perfume in ‘Happy’, and Moisture Surge Foundation.
The moisture foundation has been a lovely new ‘re-discovery’ since I’ve been having good skin days, which means me needing less coverage in that area. It does a lovely job of evening the skin tone, and moisturizing. And not forgetting the lovely dewy look it leaves on your skin!
The Charcoal face wash is what has been responsible for my good skin days. A wonderfully deep cleaning face wash. Don’t let the color scare you! :p
And lastly, the Happy perfume, was a lovely added gift from the lady at the counter. Its fresh and floral, and not too over powering. I would recommend sampling it if given the chance!

❤ Lastly, the AG Color Care Shampoo, set. I only added the shampoo to save room in the photo, but along with it was included conditioner, and heat protector spray. I do not usually splurge too much on shampoo, but I’ve been learning to trust spending a little extra for great quality. All of the products smell like yummy creamsicle, thus making you smell like a Popsicle 😅 The affect it has on my hair is phenomenal! I noticed a difference after the first wash, making it more soft and vibrant! A+!

And that everyone was all my favorites of February! I hope you enjoyed reading! And if you did, thank you for spending a few minutes of your day here. Love having ya! :p

Hope everyone’s week has started off wonderful and I’ll be back soon! (I promise!)

Thanksgiving Weekend

Over here in Canada we just had our thanksgiving weekend!
Even if I am not quite in the fall spirit, thanksgiving is always the holiday that brings me right to it.
With all the cuddly fall necessities being launched I thought it would be necessary to grab a few of my favorites!

I hit up Bath and Body Works to grab some fabulous candles. All of them smell amazing!
With the help of some of my favorite YouTubers I managed to track down my favorite smells quick as a bunny.

The first one I already had in mind was ‘Sweater Weather’, which didn’t fail to ell amazing! Somehow it smells like sweet apples in fresh air, and a hint of men’s cologne. That is just what it smells like to me personally and I love it!

The second I grabbed is called Autumn, which is quite self explanatory as to why I went right for it. It’s a light fresh scent with a hint of vanilla. Simple as that and so wonderful!

The last one is called ‘Marshmallow Fireside’. Its smells exactly the way it sounds. Deliciously festive! This is one I picked up for my boyfriend since his love of candles is just as strong as mine.

The big treat I got myself was this single wick, to die for, scented candle. It is called ‘Leaves’, and it is essentially the entire fall season beautifully wrapped up in one candle.

  I hope everyone who celebrated Thanksgiving this weekend had an amazing time. What is your favorite thing about the holiday if you celebrate it? And to others who celebrate in November, tell me what you look forward to most about Thanksgiving!
Ciao!
