Five on Friday - March 17, 2017!

Happy Friday everyone! This week has flown by for me (I took a couple of days off of work and we did lots of baby shopping which was a great idea!) Also, thankfully it has warmed up and is starting to feel like Spring is just around the corner!

Also, Happy St. Patrick's Day - hopefully you go enjoy some green beers this evening (have an extra for me!) 

ONE 

It's been so long since I have gotten the Scratch Monthly Mani Kit (actually almost 1 year), and since then every month nail artist, NinaNailedIt designs an exclusive set of nail wraps! I have been trying to work my way through my nail collection so I haven't been tempted to sign up in a while! But, I absolutely loved the spoilers for the March Mani Kit and had to grab it! 

The Scratch Monthly Mani Kit is $10.00 US + $4.95 for international shipping! Each month you get an exclusive set of wraps that aren't available for purchase and a few extra little mani goodies! 

This month's subscription came with:
  • Tropical Florals nail wraps
  • silver and gold striping tape
  • glass nail file
I will probably keep the subscription up for April too, since the wraps looks amazing! But, this is a subscription I like to keep up here and there but not every month!

So, I made my VIB Rouge at the end of 2016, but I didn't actually make an order until the beginning of March! But, since I waited so long I didn't get the 2016 present (a little Nars blush!) Instead I got the 2017 gift, which is the Sephora Pro Mini Flawless airbrush 56.5. Now, I like the Sephora brand and I love brushes, but this is tiny for a foundation brush! Hopefully it works well. 

Does it feel a little lackluster to anyone else though? I mean, I know it's a free gift, but I spent $1000 at Sephora last year so it should be a great gift! Has anyone tried it? Maybe I'm jumping the gun, and I could end up loving it!

Is it obvious from my Instagram feed yet that I love adorable tea steepers?! How adorable is this little lochness monster?! He will fit right in to my collection!!! 

FOUR

Did you catch the start of Big Brother Canada season 5 this week?! I always enjoy Big Brother, but I hate to ask how we already have to bring back 8 people from past seasons when there has only been 4 previous seasons? I think I would have preferred to see all new people this year! (photo source)

Also, The Bachelor ended this week too with Nick proposing to Vanessa! I won't say too much since I sound to myself like I'm complaining a lot during this post (which I'm not trying to so sorry if I am) but I didn't love the season overall. I wasn't Nicks #1 fan, but I did actually like Vanessa so it would be good for them if it worked out! (photo source)

Hope you all have a great weekend!

    1. I will use it and see how I like it for sure! I buy all my steepers on ebay!

  2. I managed to grab the Nars blush for the rouge gift at the end of 2016. I feel all of the rouge gifts are kind of lackluster considering we spend a fair bit of money.

    1. Ya they are - I think they could step it up a bit, but I may have preferred the blush!
