New Years Eve Makeup Look Using the Jouer Cosmetics Funfetti Collection Set

It's almost time to bid farewell to 2018 - I've got a cute, blingy little set to help ring in the New Years with lots of sparkle! 

Jouer Cosmetics Funfetti Collection Set

I'm of the opinion that glitter should always be included in a New Years look! And, Jouer Cosmetics is a newer brand to me, so I wanted to give a few of their products a try! (I personally love these little minis to test products out!)

Five on Saturday - December 29, 2018

Happy Saturday everyone! I hope you all had a great holiday season - I have been off of work for the week, so I feel like i'm in this weird limbo time; but, I have been spending lots of time with my family! 

ONE 



I had such an amazing Christmas with my favorite boys! Damian and Elliott were a blast opening presents and were so much fun! Mitch got to be home in the morning and watch the boys open their presents, and then he had to work. But, we are so used to shift work, so it's not a big deal! My family came over and spent the night with up and it was perfect!

Storybook Cosmetics Book Club Subscription Box - Volume 01 (November 2018) Little Women Palette Swatches and Try-on + My Experience

This might be a bit of a long post, I feel like I have a lot to talk about in terms of my experience with the Storybook Cosmetics Book Club Subscription Box! 


storybook book club subscription little women

Storybook Cosmetics announced back in May 2018 that they were coming out with a subscription box and that it would available in August 2018. I was very excited about this subscription - it was at a time I was getting frustrated with my beauty subscription boxes and was looking for a unique makeup subscription! I signed up and paid immediately (May 8th to be exact!)

December 2018 - Monthly Favorites

Hello end of the year! I will be doing my 2018 Yearly Favorites as well in a few days; but, I always think that favorites feel incomplete without doing December! So, here is what I was loving in December:


December 2018 - Monthly Favorites

Bite Beauty Astrology by Bite Limited Edition Amuse Bouche Lipstick in Scorpio ~ $30.00 CAN. A limited-edition shade of award-winning Amuse Bouche Lipstick, created for the zodiac sign Scorpio. For sexy Scorpio, Bite mixes up a bombshell fiery orange-red. This searing, spicy shade is made for hot dates.

This is a limited edition shade, and it's no longer available on Sephora; but, Bite Beauty still has some on their website! This is an orange red, and honestly I wasn't sure how it was going to look on me; but, I love it! I have been making an effort to wear this out multiple times since I got it! My husband even told me that he doesn't like bright lipstick; but, he likes this shade on me too! The formula is long lasting, and I just need a quick blot so that it doesn't get on my teeth! 

You can see my full review and swatches here and I just used it in a recent holiday glam look that you can see here!

Manicure Monday - Glittery Green and Stamped Stockings

"T'was the Night Before Christmas and all through the house, not a creature was stirring not even a Mouse. The stockings were hung by the chimney with care, in hopes that St. Nicholas soon will be there." 

Happy Manicure Monday and Merry Christmas Eve! The Night Before Christmas is such a tradition for our family to read on Christmas Eve together before bed time - it's perfect to help get the kids settled, and it's been happening since I was a kid! 


Manicure Monday - Glittery Green and Stamped Stockings

So, I thought what better nails to do for Christmas Eve nails than stockings?! Also, stockings are my favorite part of Christmas time - I look forward to that more than the presents. My mom always stuffed my stocking and snuck in and put it on the end of my bed, so it was the best to wake up and have presents right there! So, I've been doing it for my older son, Damian, too and will start with Elliott when he's old enough!

Glam Christmas Look featuring ColourPop Supernova Shadows and Bite Beauty Scorpio!

Happy almost Christmas time everyone - can you believe we are two days away?! We start celebrating tomorrow, so really I'm only one day away from Christmas festivities! 


Glam Christmas Look featuring ColourPop Supernova Shadows and Bite Beauty Scorpio!

I always love to get glam for Christmas, so I thought I'd share the look I'm planning for the holidays! I have been loving this Scorpio lipstick by Bite Beauty and really wanted to try the ColourPop Supernova Shadow that I have, and I think they worked so perfect with each other!

Five on Friday - December 21, 2018

Happy Friday everyone! I hope you've all had a great week - mine has been so busy! I have been counting down to this Friday and am looking forward to having just about a week and a half off of work! It is much needed! 

Are you guys all ready for Christmas?! I got the last of our gifts and stocking stuffers this week and we are ready to go! I will do all my wrapping and prep this weekend; but, we are good! It's relieving not to have to go out and get anything this weekend! 

ONE 



I really tried to plan ahead and get us funny outfits to wear for our Christmas cards and our reindeer onesies are great and the cards turned out fun. But, I've been so damn busy that I did not make good timing to send them out to most people this year! Ugh - I don't know how people get everything done with toddlers and work because I clearly can't keep up!

Manicure Monday - Christmas Ornament Nail Art!

"O Christmas tree, O Christmas tree, How lovely are thy branches" - what am I going to do when I have to find another back drop rather than use my Christmas tree anymore?! We are just over a week away from Christmas and I couldn't be more excited! 


Manicure Monday - Christmas Ornament Nail Art!

One of my favorite Christmas past times is decorating the tree - we always get a real tree and there is just something about the smell and getting the decorations all set up that just gets me in the Christmas spirit! 

Sunday, December 16, 2018

Five on Sunday - December 16, 2018

This post usually starts by wishing you all a happy weekend; but, it's already Sunday! Where did the time go?! It's so close to Christmas and it is such a busy time! So, I hope you all had a great weekend. Mine was busy; but, good!

ONE 



Last weekend was our annual Girl's Christmas Dinner gift exchange and we always draw names for gifts! It's always such a fun surprise! I think I'm super easy to shop for, so I always get amazing gifts every year! This year I got a cat trinket tray (or spoon rest), foil masks, bath bombs, and a homemade sugar scrub!

Natasha Denona Mini Star Palette - Swatches, Makeup Look and Review!

Oh look, another mini Natasha Denona - I have been such a fan of the other 2 mini palettes that I've tried, so I picked this one up right away too! 


Natasha Denona Mini Star Palette

Earlier in the year, I tried both the Natasha Denona Mini Sunset eyeshadow palette and the Mini Lila eyeshadow palette and I was really impressed with both of them! I thought they performed well and the shadows looked amazing on! (Both also made Monthly Favorites over this year).

Manicure Monday Recap - My Favorite Christmas Nail Art!

Happy Manicure Monday everyone! I hope you all had a great weekend - mine was crazy busy! So that explains why I don't have fresh nails for my Monday this week - trust me, it bothers me immensely; but, it will give me a chance to put a nail treatment on and let my nails rest for a couple of days! 

But, I still wanted to participate in our #CBBxManiMonday group - we are doing holiday nails all month! And, I actually love recap posts because it gives you so many fun ideas for nails! So, I thought I would recap my favorite Christmas (or holiday) nails today!  

Santa Nail Art 

Manicure Monday - Christmas Nail Art

Santa nails are so classic for Christmas! I love how cute these Santa nails turned out and they were easy! You really only need a nail dotting tool. You can check out my original post and a quick tutorial on these Santa's here

November 2018 - Empties and Month in Masks!

Time to look at my beauty garbage!


Laneige Lip Sleeping Mask ~ mini size shown here (full size is $24.00 CAN). A leave-on lip mask that soothes and moisturizes for smoother, more supple lips overnight.

When I got this at first, I wasn't sure what the hype was about - it just worked like a lip balm overnight. Wrong - I tried to use a normal lip balm overnight again like I used to, and when I woke up half way through the night, I noticed how dry my lips were. This lip mask actually hydrates the lips all night and they are soft in the morning - plus, it just feels like a soft lip balm formula when it applies! I think the full size has a spatula with it, and that is my only complaint with the mini - I hate dipping my finger in a pot. It made my favorites in June of this year! 

Repurchase: Yes

Friday, December 7, 2018

Five on Friday - December 7, 2018

Happy Friday everyone! I hope you all had a great week! Ours has been good - we are full in to Christmas mode! We had a huge family dinner last weekend with the extended family and I'm having my friend's gift exchange this weekend and am making the turkey for it! 

ONE 



Ohhh... I always get so excited when new subscriptions ship to Canada, and I really wanted to sign up for the Maniology Mani x Me subscription; but, when they started a couple of month ago, it wasn't originally open to Canadians. So when they announced that they were shipping to Canada a couple of weeks ago I jumped at the chance to get it! 

It is $25.00 US per month plus shipping (I believe it is free shipping to the U.S. and $6.00 to Canada. Each month you will receive 2 exclusive plates, 2 polishes and an extra gift. There is also the option of an express Mani x Me for $18.00 US, and it was come with the 2 exclusive stamping plates and an extra gift.

Kocostar Sliced Cucumber Mask - Try-on and Review!

I'm a day late for Mask Wednesday; but, we are going ahead with a mask review anyways! 

Kocostar Sliced Cucumber Mask

I will say it 100 times here - I'm a total sucker for packaging on masks. The cuter it is, the more I need it on my face. So, when I came across these Kocostar masks in Anthropologie, I had to try them!

November 2018 - Monthly Favorites!

Here are the top 5 things I've been loving in November:

November 2018 - Monthly Favorites!

Lush Snow Fairy Body Spray ~ $29.95 CAN. Summon the sweetest scent with just a few spritzes of Snow Fairy Body Spray. Soak up all that saccharine goodness to enchant your senses, and let its magical scent envelop you in a cloak of candied mystique. 

Ahhh... Snow Fairy is my most favorite Christmas scent and now it's in this delightful body spray! It is so sweet and yummy smelling and I just love these big body spray bottles (I have the Sleepy one as well!) This is huge - it should last me forever, and I only use one spray a day! Ahhh... so  good! It's limited edition, so head to the Lush site if you're interested!

Manicure Monday - Merry Kitschmas Nails!

Happy December everyone! Whooo, sorry for the couple day delay; but, I needed a little break after NaBloPoMo in November (yes, I managed a post every day for the whole month!) Plus, I have been a little sick; but, am on the mend! 

Manicure Monday - Merry Kitschmas Nails!

Now, what you came for are these adorable "Kitschmas" nails! For all of December, I along with all the ladies behind #CBBxManiMonday will be featuring Christmas (or Holiday) nails for the whole month!

Happy Friday everyone!! I hope you've all had a great week! 

ONE

I've made it - NaBloPoMo (National Blog Post Month) is over! I managed to post every single day for the month of November! It was actually a lot of work and a couple of days I was doing posts day of; but, it actually feels like a huge accomplishment!

November 2018 What I Bought - Monthly Haul!

I love these Haul posts; because, for me it's a way of sharing everything I pick up throughout a month - honestly, I buy so much stuff that if I don't share it here, it might not pop up until my empties post! Let me know if there is anything you want to see a full post on, just let me know and I will do it!)

Also, I do "try" to stick to a monthly budget of $100, and these posts are supposed to keep me in check! I can go a little crazy sometimes with new things though - why is there so much new makeup being released all the time?! I will only include products I have spent money on - gifts and freebies are usually shared on posts like my Five on Friday posts!

Here is a look at everything I bought in November:


November 2018 What I Bought - Monthly Haul!

Sephora VIB Rouge Shopping Haul #1 ~ $84.00 CAN. Ya, there are multiple shopping hauls for this sale - there was lots I wanted to try! Clearly there is a lot of Bite Beauty - I wanted to try the Agave Lip Mask (I'm running out of mine and heard this one was amazing), plus I also really had to try the Bite Beauty Scorpio lipstick (you can see my review here), and I also picked up the 2018 Birthday gift by Bite!

Mask Wednesday - Sephora Collection Supermask "The Golden Mask"

Happy Mask Wednesday everyone! I'm always up for trying masks that are fun and weird - I feel like a foil gold mask fits right in there! Plus, it's from Sephora Collection which is our CBB Brand of the Month

Mask Wednesday - Sephora Collection Supermask "The Golden Mask"

Sephora Collection Supermask - The Golden Mask ~ $8.00 CAN. A limited-edition foil mask to support skin’s natural radiance.

This mask features honey to help reduce the appearance of blemishes and leave skin bright and hydrated! The foil material helps lock the ingredients in to the skin for maximum absorption. 

Tuesday, November 27, 2018

Natural, Organic, Vegan (and Mostly Canadian) Shampoos and Conditioners!

I have complained about my hair type on here before - it is both thin and fine, which is not the greatest combination. I run in to the problem that a lot of shampoos and conditioners just don't work well for me, so I'm always on the hunt for a set that works for my hair! 


Natural, Organic, Vegan (and Mostly Canadian) Shampoos and Conditioners!

I've tested out quite a few different haircare brands lately and the best part is they are mostly Canadian and are all some form of vegan, natural, organic and cruelty free!

Manicure Monday - New Sephora Collection Color Hit Mini Nail Polishes + Leaves Nail Art

Happy Mani Monday everyone! I was so excited to see Sephora Collection nail polishes pop up recently as ever since Formula X was discontinued, I was waiting for another "house" brand pop up for affordable polishes there! 


Manicure Monday - New Sephora Collection Color Hit Mini Nail Polishes + Leaves Nail Art

The Sephora Collection Color Hit Mini Nail Polishes are fairly new to Sephora and come with a decent shade selection of creme finishes, and a few shimmers and glitters.

Becca x Glamglow We Know Glow Kit ~ Gravitymud Firming Treatment & Shimmering Skin Perfector in Rose Glow

When I saw Becca and Glamglow were releasing a limited edition set together I thought it was such a fun idea! Of course I want a pink highlight and mask together! 

Becca x Glamglow We Know Glow Kit

Becca x Glamglow We Know Glow Kit ~ $38.00 CAN. An exclusive collaboration kit from the people who know glow—BECCA and GLAMGLOW.

This set contains two deluxe size products:

We just got all decorated for Christmas last night!!! It was so much fun - although, a little crazier with a toddler in the midst! I absolutely love Christmas, so we had Bing Crosby Christmas tunes playing for hours while we got set up! Ah...

Lush Rosy Cheeks Fresh Face Mask - Try-on and Review!

Have I established on here that I'm a Lushie?! I feel like I've been pretty open about my love of Lush products! 

Lush Rosy Cheeks Fresh Face Mask - Try-on and Review!

It's actually rare for me to find a Lush mask that I haven't tried - I love to try them all! But, I haven't tried Rosy Cheeks yet, which is surprising because I love rose products on my skin! 

Wednesday, November 21, 2018

Family Advent Calendars ~ Beauty, Beer, Chocolate, and D.I.Y. Books!

Bite Beauty ~ Astrology by Bite Limited Edition Amuse Bouche Lipstick in Scorpio

I loved when Bite announced that they were releasing a lipstick shade for each Astrology sign! But, it was such a long wait for the end of October to come around so we could see what Scorpio looked like! 


Bite Beauty ~ Astrology by Bite Limited Edition Amuse Bouche Lipstick in Scorpio

I'm a Scorpio born early November and I really like astrology, so I'm in to all the astrology releases! I used to follow astrology a lot more than I do now. I certainly believe I'm a pretty true Scorpio and I believe in the traits, compatibility, etc. I just am not always checking my horoscope or analyzing everyone based on their birthdays!

Manicure Monday - Night Sky Constellation Nails + Essence "Out Of Space Stories" Polish Swatches

Happy Manicure Monday! I have been wanting to do a Night Sky themed manicure with constellations for quite some time, so I'm so excited for this week's manicure! 


Manicure Monday - Night Sky Constellation Nails

When I picked up a few of these Essence "Out Of Space Stories" polishes, I new this was the perfect time to do a Night Sky manicure! In addition to this manicure look, I also am swatching four of the polishes from the collection (and I used them all in this Night Sky mani)!

Wise - Canadian Men's Natural, Organic and Vegan Products

Wise is a Canadian brand of men's natural, organic and cruelty free hair and skincare products! They focus on carefully sourced ingredients and responsible and recycle-able packaging. 

Wise - Canadian Men's Natural, Organic and Vegan Products
Also, all of their products use natural ingredients, and contain no artificial fragrances or dyes, MEA, DEA or TEA, parabens, phthalates or sulphates that damage the hair. I love a company that not only focuses on ingredients; but, also on packaging! I really love that everything is recyclable - there seems to be a lot of care in to the whole line!

Five on Saturday - November 17, 2018

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

ONE 



I have been eagerly anticipating the release of the new Fantastic Beasts Book - The Crimes of Grindelwald! Yes, I needed to get it right away as I'm still such a huge fan of the Harry Potter world and so far I've been liking this prequel/spin off! And, I like these books in screenplay form - it's a little different! 

Friday, November 16, 2018

Lush Christmas Products ~ Bath Bombs, Bubble Bars, Scrubs and Body Sprays!

It's the most wonderful time of the year!!! I try not to get too many holiday goodies for myself; but, I can't resist the Lush Christmas collection! 

Lush Christmas Products ~ Bath Bombs, Bubble Bars, Scrubs and Body Sprays!

Lush always releases a ton of limited edition products for the holidays and they always have so much good stuff! I requested a few really cute products from the collection from my hubby for my birthday and I am so excited to try them all!

Too Faced Tickled Peach Mini Eyeshadow Palette ~ Swatches, Eye Look, Sweet Peach Comparison, and Review!

It's no secret that I love the Too Faced peach products - I have purchased quite a few of the products in the line! I know the packaging and the peach scent aren't for everyone; but, I'm a total sucker for cute packaging so it's great for me! Plus, I actually think the scents make makeup fun! 


Too Faced Tickled Peach Mini Eyeshadow Palette ~ Swatches, Eye Look, Sweet Peach Comparison, and Review!

Also, I can't resist a mini palette - I have quite a few of them and just find them so handy! I'm not always great with too many shades in a palette and can get overwhelmed and not know how pair a bunch of shades together. Especially on the go or for work, I love a little palette that I know how the shades are going to go together! 

Wednesday, November 14, 2018

Mask Wednesday - Sephora Collection Supermask "The Mud Mask" ~ Try on and Review!

Happy Mask Wednesday! How cool does a sheet mud mask sounds?! Seriously, there are days I want to use a mud mask; but, the thought of the clean up turns me right off of the idea! So, this seems like such an interesting solution! 


Mask Wednesday - Sephora Collection Supermask "The Mud Mask" ~ Try on and Review!

Sephora Collection Supermask - The Mud Mask ~ $8.00 CAN. A two-part sheet mask that has been infused with a mineral mud formula to mattify, balance, and remineralize the skin.

This is a 15 minute mask that works to absorb oil, balance and remineralize skin for clearer and matte skin! Again, the idea of the benefits of a mud mask in a sheet mask sounds so cool!

Sephora VIB Rouge Sale Haul - Holiday Goodies and New Products!

Ooooh - I just love when it's time for the Sephora VIB Rouge sale! I didn't purchase anything from the extra sale in August, so my wish list was getting rather large for this sale! 


Sephora VIB Rouge Sale Haul - Holiday Goodies and New Products!

There have been a lot of good releases and I have been trying to not buy everything - I actually think there is a lot of holiday items that I'm not getting this year; but, I always have to get a couple of things!

Custom Lipstick Experience - Posh Couture Cosmetics ~ Edmonton, Alberta

I'm so exited to share today's post! I have been so jealous watching people in places like Toronto and Los Angeles be able to go to Lip Labs and make their own custom lipsticks! There has been nothing like that anywhere near Alberta, until now! 


Custom Lipstick - Posh Couture Cosmetics ~ Edmonton, Alberta

Posh Couture Cosmetics is located in St. Albert, Alberta - just outside of Edmonton. I heard about Posh Couture a little while ago and have been waiting for a chance to pay them a visit!

Manicure Sunday - Remembrance Day Poppy Nails

Today is Remembrance Day in Canada, and this year is actually a very important Remembrance Day - this day marks the 100th anniversary of the end of World War I. 

Manicure Sunday - Remembrance Day Poppy Nails

I always take today to reflect on where Canada is now and the fact that we are very lucky to live in Canada - there are countries around the world that don't have the same peace and security we do and many people still experiencing war right now. We are very lucky to live where we do and I try no to take that for granted. 

Saturday, November 10, 2018

Travel Post - Disneyland ~ Anaheim, California + tips for travelling with a big family and a baby under 1!

I'm always a little slow getting to writing my travel posts; but, I have been meaning to write this since we got back from Disneyland! I love Disneyland so much - it sounds so cheesy, but it is always so magical and fun! 


Travel Post - Disneyland ~ Anaheim, California + tips for travelling with a big family and a baby under 1!

So January of this year, we took a big family vacation to Los Angeles and Anaheim for a week! We went with our family of 4 that included a baby under one, my mom, my step-dad, my teenage brother and his service dog. Plus, we met my sister and her husband there too!

Lipsmacker Disney Emoji Lip Balms ~ Mickey & Cinderella

I hope you all have been enjoying Disney week! If you aren't caught up, I've been doing Disney inspired posts all week - Belle nails, Villains sheet masks, and the ColourPop Disney Designer collection


Lipsmacker Disney Emoji Lip Balms ~ Mickey & Cinderella

How stinkin' cute are these little Disney Emoji lip balms?! Lipsmacker certainly knows how to nail cute packaging and scents! I've raved about the Lipsmacker lip balm formula as well - I always like the lip balms I try from them!

ColourPop Disney Designer Collection - Swatches, Try On, and Review!

I was super excited when ColourPop announced their Disney Designer collection! I want to be a Disney princess when I grow up, so I pretty much had to have this collection! 

Also, I requested that my husband buy me this collection for my birthday, and since I turn 32 today, I figured I should review my birthday gift! 

ColourPop Disney Designer Collection - Swatches, Try On, and Review!

The Disney Designer collection are the Princesses reimagined in the attire for the red carpet for their movie premieres in the year their movies were released - Tiana in 2009, Ariel in 1989, Belle in 1991, Jasmine in 1992, Snow White in 1937, and Cinderella in 1950. They all look so gorgeous and the packaging is stunning! The Designer collection is a bigger collection from Disney and includes dolls and accessories of all these princesses!

Mad Beauty Disney Villains Face Mask Collection - Try on and Review!

Can we talk about Disney, without focusing on some villains during Disney week?! It just wouldn't seem right... and I could not wait to dive in to these masks when they arrived! 


Mad Beauty Disney Villains Face Mask Collection - Try on and Review!

I saw a picture of these online somewhere and squealed, then dropped everything I was doing and rushed to the Mad Beauty site to buy all the masks!

October 2018 - Monthly Empties + Month in Masks

Time to look at my monthly Makeup Garbage! 


October 2018 - Monthly Empties + Month in Masks

Quo by ORLY Instant Artist White Polish ~ $13.60 CAN. Bring out your inner creativity with Orly Instant Artist Crisp White Lacquer Based Nail Lacquer and take your designs to the next level.

This was a really good nail art polish, but why is it almost $14 now?! Also, where did nail art polishes go at the drugstore?! I've been to a few and can't find them so I might have to pay to get this one again! 
Repurchase: Likely

October 2018 - Monthly Favorites!

Here's a look at what I've been loving for the month of October: 


October 2018 - Monthly Favorites!

Makeup Revolution - Revolution x The Emily Edit "The Wants" Palette ~ $20.00 US. An eyeshadow palette you'll want to use everyday! Created and crafted with content creator Emily Noel, aka Beauty Broadcast, The Revolution x The Emily Edit - The Wants Eyeshadow Palette features 24 matte, satin and shimmer shades.

I had never tried anything from Makeup Revolution prior to Emily Noel creating this palette with them; but, I really wanted to support her and give this a try and I really like! I've done a full Palette of the Week post with this palette and 5 looks with this - you can check it out here! It's incredibly versatile and has a ton of colours that I don't own a lot of in my collection - greens, purples, etc. There was some mixed reviews on the formula; but, I really found it workable and easy to use. (I think it's currently being reformulated over other an issue with on or two shadows, but I know it will be back in stock soon!)

Five on Friday - November 2, 2018

Happy Friday everyone! Can you believe it is November already?! Seriously, where has this year gone! 

ONE 



Before we move on to November, I have to reflect on the best day of October - HALLOWEEN! This year the whole family was Ninja Turtles and I was so excited there is finally 4 of us for the whole gang to have a costume! 

Elliott loved his Halloween costume and pretty much wore it all day! We went to the mall in the morning to play with his friend, had the grandparents stop by before nap and then wore it again for trick-or-treating! He was running around saying Turtle the whole time and was so cute! And, if you are interested in seeing how I did my makeup, you can check out my post here
