Five on Friday - November 11, 2016

Happy Friday everyone - it is also Remembrance Day here in Canada so we should all take a minute to be thankful for the freedoms and rights we have, and those who have fought, and continue to fight for us! 

This week marked my 30th Birthday! It seems a little hard to believe as 30 seems a little weird, but there are so many good things coming this year - I am looking forward to seeing what 30 brings! 

My hubby spoiled my this year and got me a new laptop!

I'm so excited for this! My laptop is so slow and it takes forever to do anything! I can't wait to get it all set up! 

We celebrated pretty quietly with a nice dinner at Karma - my favorite Indian restaurant in Calgary!

I feel like I have some big news - I actually went ahead and cancelled both my Topbox and my Ipsy this month! I will get Topbox for November and then it is done, and Ipsy will come until February because I had a yearly subscription! 

I have just been unhappy with the products, and if I am going to spend money on makeup every month, I would love to get products I love or am excited to try! I have also been quite happy with my Boxycharm subscription so I will keep that up! 


I just got my David's Tea order in! I'm so excited for the Tea Advent Calendar!

Also 3 teas that are safe while you are pregnant are:
  • Rooibos 
  • Melon Drop Fruit Infusion
  • Green & Fruity Rooibos
There are a few others: Luscious Watermelon, Creme Caramel, Forever Nuts - there are more, these are the few Caffeine Free ones I have found. Some of the caffeine ones I'm sure are good too, just watch the overall caffeine intake! 


I finally saw The Girl on the Train last night - it was so good! I really enjoyed it! I thought overall, it stayed true to the book and the actresses and actors really played their characters well! I can't believe it took me this long! 

I try not to talk about polarizing issues too often on the blog - it is a beauty blog after all! But, the American election took place this week and I think even though I am not in America, there is no doubt that Canada and the rest of the world will be impacted by the decision made this week! 

I am quite shocked that a person like Donald Trump could get elected - everything he campaigned on was shocking and quite scary. I'm scared that he is a climate change denier, doesn't believe in basic equal human rights, treats women as objects, and has terrifying world views. I was really hoping to see a female president myself! 

I hope everyone has a great weekend - I am having a girl's night this weekend so I am excited! 


  1. Happy Birthday! I will be 30 in December, and I can't believe it lol. I still need to read The Girl on the Train, I have the book but I just haven't picked it up. I'll have to do that soon because I'd like to see the movie too!

    1. Thanks! Oh, that's exciting I love birthdays (even if 30 sounds a little daunting!) The book is so good - you should read it soon!
