April Favourites

My April Favourites are a little bit later than usual this time around but I have a few products that I can’t get enough of. As usual, I also have a few interesting miscellaneous favourites as well! Is anyone else feeling completely reinvigorated by the sunshine and spring beauty out there? After what always feels like a winter that is way too long the sunshine is making me feel so inspired. I have so many colourful makeup looks on my mind that I want to start working on. Continue reading

Laura Mercier | Foundation Primer – Radiance

I am not usually one for any sort of primer that has the word “radiant” in it. Generally, these make my already shiny/oily skin look even more like an oil-slick. However, I have been finding lately that the cold winter we have been experiencing in Thunder Bay is making my skin look dry and lifeless. I still have to use a mattifying foundation and powder but I have been finding that adding this primer underneath (instead of a matte one) has been adding a little extra oomph to my skin. I don’t think I’d use it all year round but I could see this becoming a staple for the winter months. Continue reading

Snapshot Sunday + Weekly Post Recap

Hi guys! How is it Sunday again already? This week has been fairly eventful as I started my new position at work on Monday. I’ve been learning lots and have definitely been enjoying it!

Other than that, I didn’t really do that much during the week outside of work. I’ve been exercising quite a bit and trying even harder to stick to my routine.

On Monday, since it was a holiday I went for a walk around Boulevard Lake with one of my besties and her adorable pup, Winnie! It was a beautiful day for a walk and the snow was almost all gone (at that point… ┬áits come back and left again twice since then). After that I had an Easter dinner at my parents house which was delicious as usual! Always look forward to my family dinners there!

1. Red Pepper Pasta and Short Rib Ragu from Big Lakes Pasta/Redhead and the Chef 2. The snow just seems to melt and then come back! 3. One of my besties surprised me with this Black Widow bobblehead from Funko Pop, he knows me well!

On Saturday, my husband and I went to the Spring Home & Garden Show and browsed around. I ended up taking home some homemade pasta and sauce from one of the vendors at the market there. I think I’m going to have to go to the market again next weekend and pick up more pasta, and possibly some perogies too! I already made the pasta and it was incredible. Both were purchased from Big Lakes Pasta but the sauce was made by Redhead and the Chef. Highly recommend both! Continue reading
