Five of Saturday - February 27, 2021 ~ Hunter Boots, Knix Leggings, Becca Cosmetics, Declutter, and The Bachelor

Happy Saturday everyone! I hope you all had a great week!


I purchased everything in this post

I'm so excited - Costco has Hunter Boots on for a great price! (I think they are $100 in store, but I just picked these up online for $115 with free shipping!) I was so excited - I've really wanted a short pair (a little easier to wear and more versatile!) They were a great find! 


I placed my first order from Knix - I really wanted to pick up the Papaya High Rise Legging when they restocked and I'm so excited that I got these! I picked up the Shimmer and Shine black leggings (these ones are sold out, but the titanium ones are still available if you are interested). I picked up size Medium and I was a little worried that they would be too small, but they fit snuggly and pulled everything in! I also picked up a pair of their leakproof underwear and I'm looking forward to trying them out! 


What do you guys think about the announcement about Becca closing this year? I'm so surprised because a few years ago they were a powerhouse brand! They haven't had any star releases in the past year or so, but they are a pretty big brand not to try and make a comeback! (Their highlighters will be missed - I will be checking for sales though!)


I'm decluttering a few things this month, including some nail stickers and a few nail stamping plates that I haven't used much or at all. I also am passing on a few items - the Charlotte Tilbury quad and VDL that I received in the Beautylish box. Plus a few lip items that were getting old and a Helena Lane body butter that I broke the packaging on. 


What do you guys think about all the controversy surrounding the Bachelor franchise?! Holy - there has always been a pretty significantly predominately white cast, but there just always seems to be something with the front runners - how does no one working for the show not google any contestants before they go on? And then Chris Harrison defending some of it and now stepping away. I'm not totally sure they will recover from this - do you think it's over? Also, I didn't mind Matt as the The Bachelor this season, but it was a pretty terrible group of girls to watch (with the exception of a few), so I think they have to do better in casting if the show is going to carry on! 

I hope you all have a great weekend!

Project Pan 21 in 2021 ~ Update #1

I really enjoyed working on a project pan last, it really made me enjoy using up older products in my collection, so I was excited to start a new project pan in 2021 - I am hoping to use up or hit pan on 21 products in 2021! I will again, be focusing on all makeup products as I am pretty good about working through my skincare products.

I started the project off with the first 10 products and will treat this like a rolling project - once I reach my goal, I will add a new product to the mix! I have a mix of goals between finishing products and hitting pan, so this should be a lot of fun! I also picked a mix of products that I will reach my goals quickly on and some that may take close to the whole project to reach! I will update every two months:

Lush Kitchen Subscription Box ~ Vol.9 February 2021

I've made it pretty clear here that I'm a big Lushie, so naturally I was very excited last year when Lush Kitchen announced that they were starting a subscription box, of course I ordered it right away and the first box was in May! It is a little pricey with the conversion to Canada; but, I've only been getting it every couple of months, so I consider it a fun subscription box splurge!

The Lush Kitchen Subscription box is a monthly subscription box full of exclusive Lush Labs goodies made exclusively for the box - every month subscribers vote on the monthly menu of products that they would or would not like to see in the box, so you can help pick what is included in the box! Also, all of the products included in each box will be vegan.

Manicure Monday - Sally Hansen Insta-Dri Prismatic Shine polish in Pink Aurora

I was rather excited to see the new Sally Hansen Prismatic Shine polishes in store at Shoppers Drug Mart recently - they look so pretty. So naturally, I had to pick up one and give it a go!

This is a newer line and I can't resist a pink glittery polish, so I had to give this a try! Also, it's been a very busy weekend and I didn't have much time to do my nails at all, so it seems like the perfect time to use a polish that claims to dry in 60 seconds! The Insta-Dri formula is also 3-in-1 formula, so you don't have to use a base or top coat with the polish! (Again, perfect for a super quick mani!)

Monthly Beauty Empties - January 2021

Time for a look at my beauty garbage from January:

Monthly Beauty Empties - January 2021
Some products may have been received as PR samples - this post contains affiliate links

MAC Cosmetics Mini MAC Prep + Prime Fix+ Primer and Setting Spray ~ $18.00 CAN. A lightweight water mist that finishes makeup, while gently soothing and refreshing skin.

This was a little mini I've been carrying around in my purse for a while - I like this as a refresher during the day while wearing makeup because it won't mess up my makeup. I also prefer this as a primer and don't use it soley as a setting spray.
