VIIcode O2M Oxygen Eye Pads for Dark Circles

I love a Skincare Sunday post - happy to be sharing a mask review with you today! 

VIIcode O2M Oxygen Eye Pads for Dark Circles
This is a sponsored post

You've heard me talk about VIIcode before and I'm excited for this post! I worked with VIIcode last year, so I'm happy to share another set of their eye masks again. VIICode is a brand that focuses solely on eye care - they utilize an ecological oxygen plant extract that helps with dark circles and promotes youthful, radiant eyes! They have masks and eye creams in their line. I do love that there is a specification in their products, so while their range is smaller, it's going to be great at what it focuses on!

Five on Saturday - May 25, 2024 ~ Victoria Trip, A Tempest of Tea Book Review, First Garden Blooms, Kiki's Delivery Service, and Secrets of the Octopus Documentary

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


Me and Elliott took a little long weekend trip to Victoria this past weekend and had such a great time - we spent time at the ocean, enjoyed the wharf, took in all the sights and visited with my brother! We stayed right downtown and had such a great time!

Five on Friday - May 17, 2024 Swatch Post ~ Wayne Goss The Luxury Eye Palette - Amber, Urban Decay Moondust Glitter Eyeshadow Palette - Space Rider, Lancome Eye and Face Palette Holiday 2023, Natasha Denona Pastel Plexi Glow Highlighter, and Natasha Denona Cranberry Eyeshadow Palette

Happy Friday everyone! Hope you all had a good week - I've been computer-less enjoying a week at the cabin with all the family! 

Since I'm away, I'm skipping a life update for my Five on Friday post (and will save my update for next Friday!) and instead I'm sharing and swatching 5 palettes/products that are older, but I just came in to them this year but just won't get to doing a full dedicated post for! 


Wayne Goss The Luxury Eye Palette - Amber ~ $77.00 CAN. The Luxury Eye Palette in Amber features six essential eye shadows in matte, satin, and shimmer finishes you’ll reach for again and again. Infused with smooth-blend emollients and micronized pigments, Wayne’s custom eye shadow formula blends with the lightest touch—no special techniques needed.

This is a palette that I got in my Beautylish Lucky Bag - there is always a palette, and honestly I've never tried Wayne Goss beauty before. I do really like this palette's shades (but overall his palettes haven't called out to me before). Having said that, this is a god formula - I've used it quite a few times now and it applies good and it easy to use!

May 2024 Lush Kitchen Subscription Box ~ Volume 48

The Lush Kitchen Subscription box is a monthly subscription box full of exclusive Lush Kitchen 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. 

Each month the Lush Kitchen Subscription is $49.95 CAN box is per month + shipping (shipping to Alberta is $6.00 CAN and likely varies province to province). The subscription will come with 4-5 exclusive products and I think it will include a variety of products that Lush makes; but, will of course be mostly bath and body products.

I love that this month's theme is Bridgerton, usually May comes with custom Mother's Day items, but this is cute because Season 3 is coming out right away (today as this is posting!)

I purchased this box

Each month you pay and vote for products that are coming in the following month's box - so for this May box, you had until April 5 to vote on the products you'd like to see and then payment comes out on the 6th of the previous month. Then, Lush spends the month making the products and ships it out at the end of April so you receive it in May.

Monthly Beauty and Book Haul ~ April 2024

Back in 2022, I set a monthly beauty and books budget at $200 per month and I've been pretty good about sticking to it! I am trying to be thoughtful in my purchases, so this has been holding me accountable for being reasonable with my spending. Since it worked so well last year, I'm really trying to do the same thing this year! 

I do always love my Monthly Haul posts - it's a good way to keep track of everything that I picked up each month. I don't always blog about everything I pick up (I try to), but if you ever spot anything in here that you really want me to talk about, let me know! 

Monthly Beauty and Book Haul ~ April 2024

The Night Circus Vintage Classic Edition ~ $34.40 CAN. It's no secret that I love The Night Circus, and while I don't buy every copy that comes out, I do pick up most. And, in the UK they just came out with this Vintage Classic Edition and it's gorgeous! (I picked mine up from Blackwells as they have free shipping in Canada).
