Five on Friday - November 3, 2017

Happy Friday everyone! Can you believe it is November already?! It certainly feels like it - Winter came in full force this week in Calgary! It is snowy and cold here! 

Also, November is National Blog Posting Month (NaBloPoMo) and I have challenged myself (along with a few CBBers) to post every day for the whole month! I post a fair bit already so I am hoping you like the extra posts this month!)


I have had this little Dragon costume for Elliott for a while and I had to be the Mother of Dragons and have my husband be Jon Snow! We are huge Game of Thrones fans - read all the books and watched all the seasons, so it was a must! I really tried to get Damian to be a skeleton dragon, but it wasn't scary enough for him! He wanted to be Freddy Fazbear from Five Night's at Freddys! 

Our family photos did not go as we planned! Poor E was so tired (lack of afternoon napping will do that), plus 2 teeth in a one week period make for a miserable baby! But, we tried and I personally think the results were hilarious! i did a quick recap on my Danaerys Targaryen makeup - you can check it out here if you are interested


I still have 2 open giveaways that both end this Sunday night - make sure you get your entries in before they are over! 

The first giveaway is from Cetaphil Canada - you can see the full post here and this is a Canada only giveaway! Cetaphil will send you 2 customized products based on your skin type. Good luck! 

I'm so excited to share my thoughts on the new @dermalogicacdn PreCleanse Balm - my post will be up tonight!

Last weekend my mom and I went to the Wizarding World of Okotoks and it was amazing!(Okotoks is a small town just outside of Calgary.) Calgary has put on a few of these events; but, I have to say that I enjoyed this one way more than the Calgary event!

The event itself was great - so many stores were involved, we had butterbeer lattes as we cruised around! They had Aurors walking around arresting people and taking them to Azkaban, a ton of photo ops, thestrals - so many goodies! Even Town Hall was open and the Mayor (Minister of Magic) was sentencing people for wizarding crimes. 

The best part was that they had a big craft fair with a ton of handmade vendors with all Harry Potter goodies! How amazing are all these goodies I picked up: teas from TeaHippies, a beautiful Hogwarts letter for my son, book marks from Rumpled Quilt Skins (Hufflepuff for Damian and Slytherin for me!), cute little wand makeup brushes, butterbeer hot chocolate mix, coffee from Rebel Bean Coffee, the cutest hoodie for Elliott from Auggie and Ava (seriously think I might ask for pants to match!), a few chocolate frogs, and all the amazing handouts they had! Overall, such a great day! 


I recently received my Fall Sample Source box! This season's Sample Source box came with a Glade car plug-in, a couple of coffees, snacks, mouthwash, toothpaste, and cat treats! Not bad for a totally free box! 


I have been hoarding my Boxycharm points for quite some time (actually since I subscriber last year!) and finally there have been a few goodies I was excited for!

These Mermaid nail wraps from NCLA, a ColourPop lip trio - Keep It Going, and another Liquid Lipstick from Aesthetica (I have never heard of this brand but this colour looks beautiful!). All together these items were $50, so I redeemed $50 worth of points + 400 points for free shipping making this all totally free! Yay! 


  1. How busy was it out in Okotoks for the Harry Potter day? I thought about going but as its over a two hour drive I wasn't sure? I followed the facebook page and it seems the whole town was really into it - thinking it may become an annual event?

    1. We were there first thing at 9am and it was super quiet - I was really surprised! And there were so many shops and places in to it! I preferred it over the Calgary one because I loved the addition of the craft fair with handmade goodies - seemed much more personal! I did see that it got busy later in the day, but I thought it was worth going out early for!
