January Favourites: Makeup, Skincare & More!

January Favourites

I usually talk about how ‘fast’ a month goes by but was it just me or did January seem particularly long this year? It could have been due to the major cold snap we had for the last couple of weeks at the month that really made it feel long. If I don’t have to see -40 with the windchill on the weather network again for the rest of the winter I’ll be a happy girl! January however was a great month – it was a month of setting goals and working on achieving them. Though I didn’t get as much blogging done as I would have liked to, I did spend the month working on some other goals of mine. Continue reading

Q4 Empties: October to December 2018

q4 empties

The last of my empties from 2018 and it’s a relatively small pile this time around. I didn’t finish much the last few months but honestly I wasn’t really using a ton of products. However, it is time to dispose of this trash so let’s chat about the products I emptied in the last quarter of 2018! I usually group my “repeats” together at the end but quite a few of these products are “repeats” so since it’s probably been awhile since I’ve talked about them I’ll give you my thoughts on them again.

Best of 2018

Best of 2018

Nearly a week into 2019 and I’m still in a bit of disbelief that 2018 is over. I don’t know if the year flew by or if it seemed like a long year. I just can’t tell! While the summer flew by because my life revolved around fixing up my old house to get it ready to sell, it also feels like Paris (where I started the year) seems like an eternity ago. Anyways, regardless, I’m excited to share with you my best of 2018! I decided to categorize it this year to make it easier to round up my favourites to make sure nothing was missed. Since I’ve categorized it and there are some items that still hold-up this year there will be some old favourites, as well as some new ones! Grab a snack because this is a long one! Continue reading

Collective Haul: December 2018

Collective Haul December 2018

Happy New Year everyone! Though I plan on sharing both my NYE makeup look and my 2018 favourites, I thought I’d first start off the year by posting my collective haul from December. I actually bought quite a bit of makeup from Sephora last month between the $25 off purchases of $75+ coupon code earlier in the month and then gift cards I received for Christmas. So let’s take a look at what I picked up last month. Continue reading

November Favourites: Makeup & Skincare

November… what a busy month it was! For my family it is the month of birthdays (including my own) and it was also NaBloPoMo so I’ve been doing my best to post every day this month! Choosing my favourites for this month was actually pretty difficult as I really had to refrain from listing off everything I got in my Sephora VIB Sale Haul, haha! Alas, I was able to prune my favourites and choose the standouts that I used the most this month! Continue reading

SNP Cat Wrinkle Mask Sheet

#MaskingMonday SNP Cat Wrinkle Mask Sheet

Oh my goodness this whole NaBloPoMo thing is coming so close to winning this battle. I think I’m just 100% more disorganized this year, I am flying by the seat of my pants. However, I am overall enjoying the challenge so bring on another post! Tonight I am trying out the SNP Cat Wrinkle Mask Sheet. I’ve used a few SNP masks over the years – I quite enjoy the fun animals on them! Continue reading

Farmacy Bright-On Massage Activated Vitamin C Mask

Farmacy Bright-On

I love trying new face masks! This week we will be chatting about the Farmacy Bright-On Massage Activated Vitamin C Mask that I picked up during the Sephora VIB Sale. This mask in particular jumped out at me for a few reasons… one the colour change intrigued me. Secondly, my skin has been so blah lately. The claims that this particular mask seemed perfect for my skin right now. Farmacy Bright-On promises to improve uneven skin-tone, pores and dullness. The texture of my skin and my pores have needed some serious improvement as of late.  Continue reading

Boscia Charcoal Pore Pudding

Boscia Charcoal Pore Pudding

I love trying new skincare. While I am by no means a skincare expert (at all), I enjoy picking up various samples of moisturizers, face masks, serums… you name it. Within the last year I picked up a deluxe sample of the Boscia Charcoal Pore Pudding (probably using Sephora points) and I have to say I have been using it quite a bit lately. My apologies in advance for the sub-par product shots… I tried experimenting with lighting (instead of natural light) in an effort to beat this fleeting daylight thing and so far I haven’t figured it out.
