Five on Friday - December 4, 2020

Happy Friday everyone! Another busy week, so I'm looking forward to a quiet weekend!

I have been keeping up my Monthly Makeup Baskets throughout this pandemic; but, I am finding it a little hard to use everything in a single month as I am wearing masks all the time. So, for now, I am going to do bi-monthly baskets - I typically feature older products, but I have quite a few newer face products that I will be focusing on for December and January:

November 2020 - Monthly Favourites!

Whoa! Can you believe we are in to the last month of 2021?! Here's what I was loving in November:

This was a month of great eyeshadows and some fun beauty accessories! There was a good range this month, except I didn't really have a skincare product, but I had something hair related (which hardly ever show up in my favourites!)

Family Advent Calendars ~ Sephora Collection, Kin + Pod Chocolate, Yawn Brew Hot Chocolate and Paw Patrol!

I absolutely love advent calendars and I really like to try new ones every year! We've tried it all - beer, chocolate, tea, books, lego, you name it! I'm really excited with our family advent calendars that I picked out this year!

We have some classic calendars in here, but we also have a small-batch Calgary chocolate company and a hot chocolate advent calendar in here! (I love that companies have become so creative with their advent calendars - there is something for everyone out there! I heard there is even a cheese calendar! So fun!)

Manicure Monday - Winter Floral Nails

Happy Manicure Monday! I hope you all have had a great (and quiet) weekend!

I was very excited by the last Scratch Monthly Mani Kit - I love their floral nail wraps and I knew I had to use them right away! They reminded me of that perfect Winter floral and this light pretty sage polish seemed like the perfect pair! (Plus, the mani kit came with these pearl accents, so they seemed like the perfect addition!)

Five on Saturday - November 28, 2020

Happy Saturday everyone! What a week it's been - the covid cases having been spiking in Alberta and we re-went under a state of emergency and lots more restrictions were imposed, including High Schools being at home until January and no social gatherings at all. So, it's been crazy, but I would rather be safe!

Time for a look at my November Reading list! I always find November is the month when I want something dark or moody and atmospheric - it's just after Spooky October and it's starting to be cold and dark, so something that I can curl up with a warm blanket and read. I think these all have a little magic or weirdness and they feel perfect for the month!
