I've always found traveling with makeup to be interesting. Mostly because I like to challenge myself by packing in a carry-on - it just makes so much more sense to me. However. This time around, Brian booked our flights and he booked one checked luggage and ZERO carry-ons. ZERO. NOTHING. NADA. ZILCH. So, that means… Continue reading What’s In My Travel Makeup Bag?
I failed at today already. It's 8:11 in the morning. I slept through 3 alarms and only crawled out of bed moments before Brian's alarm went off. I double booked my morning. I didn't write a blog post. I ran out of milk. I yelled at the kids. Anxiety is a killer today. So, here… Continue reading 5 Minute Makeup
You all know that I'm in the market for a new bottle of foundation. You may also know that my shade changes drastically throughout the year. When I was researching the Sephora VIB appreciation sale, I stumbled upon the foundation finder and decided to try it out. I thought it would be fun to do… Continue reading Sephora Foundation Finder
Ack! Sure, as soon as I make it official to the world that I'm going on a month-long spending hiatus, Sephora has to announce that they are having a sale. Good news is that it doesn't end until September 3rd, so I guess that means that 'no-spend August' will be followed up by 'prodigal September'.… Continue reading Sephora VIB Appreciation Sale | 2018
I used to apply my foundation with my fingers. (That's a no-no, right?) Then I began using those triangle wedges, which I thought were the bomb! One day, I overheard my sisters talking about how the new thing was to apply foundation with a brush. I went out and bought one. I only used it… Continue reading Brush or Sponge?
If you read my July Empties post, you already know that I ran out of my beloved Too Faced foundation. I still haven't had the time or extra pocket change to restock my favourite, so I've had to make do with other samples I had lying around from last year. Ok, there's a chance I'm… Continue reading New Favourite Foundation?
May has been a long month for me. Summer is just around the corner and soon the kids will be home. I'm interested to see how my schedule will work once they are out of school, but I'm fairly excited to spend some quality time doing some new adventures with them this summer. Because of… Continue reading May Empties | 2018
I feel like it’s safe to say that spring is here. It kind of came in overnight. One day we were sporting winter gear, the next day I had the top off my Jeep. I guess that’s Canada for you. We always joke that this is the one place in the world that you can… Continue reading April Favourites | 2018
It’s no secret that beauty costs money. Let’s be downright honest here. It’s expensive. So, how do you make it worth it? Is there a payoff? Can I just say, the payoff is feeling great and looking like a million bucks. However, beauty stores tend to have some sort of loyalty reward program to reel… Continue reading Beauty Reward Programs | Hot or Not?
I’ve always been the type of person that finds a favourite product and then tries to stick with it forever. More times than I’m excited about, I’ve headed to the store just to find my favourites have been removed from the shelves. Discontinued. Way. Too. Often. That’s where I found myself a few years ago… Continue reading Foundation Favourites | 2018
