Five on Saturday - August 4, 2018

Happy Saturday everyone! Can you believe July is over already - where did that go?! I knew coming in to Summer that it was going to be really busy; but, I can't get over how fast it is going! We are getting prepped to get out of town tomorrow and will be with the family for about a week. It will be a little quieter around here, but I do have a few post lined up for while I'm away! 


Ahh... I love makeup freebies! This week I got 2 freebies! The first was a sample of the Lancome Monsieur Big mascara which I have heard amazing things about! Topbox Circle has so many freebies to sign up for and you get a few points for them - I love that! If you haven't signed up, what are you waiting for? You just answer survey questions about beauty products and get free stuff to review (no need to have a blog!)

And, the second freebie of the week was from Mac! Last Sunday, July 29 - MAC gave away free full size lipsticks for National Lipstick Day, and I went a little early as I had actually planned to meet a friend at the mall so I picked one up (thank goodness I was early, there was at least 200 people in line when the store opened!) Anyways, I picked Moxie - which is a matte lipstick that was limited edition and brought back just for this giveaway (they had 9 different shades to pick from!)

Also, a very important holiday happened this week - it was Harry Potter's birthday earlier this week - July 31 to be exact! So, this past weekend, this adorable little bakery in Calgary (Pretty Sweet) made a whole bunch of amazing Harry Potter treats! I'm not going to lie, I had to pretty much try one of everything and they were delicious!!! 

Damian and I loved the Golden Snitch macarons! 


calgary zoo

We have family visiting from out of town, so I took a morning off this week so we could hang out at the Zoo! We always love to spend the morning there - also, I take far less picture right now because we were with a few little kids and all you do is run around after them! Elliott loved the Lemurs this time and was calling them "bunnies" - then, not so cutely, he got pissed when he couldn't hold them like a stuffed bunny he has at home! Oh, kids... I know mine isn't the only one! 


palettes of the week

I haven't talked about Palettes of the Week in a while! Nothing too crazy around here which is why I haven't talked about them! 

Two weeks ago I used the Urban Decay Naked 2 palette - this used to be my favorite! It was just okay for me - I don't really find it performs the best; but, it was probably the first eyeshadow palette I ever bought myself so I will probably keep it forever! 

Last week, I used the Lorac 3 palette which I have meaning to review on here for months! It's a pretty neutral palette and the shadows are pretty - it's nothing super amazing; but, it's good! I like Lorac shadows; but, I know a lot of people don't like the formula. 

And, this week I used the L'Oreal Paradise Enchanted scented eyeshadow palette - I just reviewed it and you can see it here, and it made my July Monthly Favorites

And finally, as this is posting we are on our way to the family cabin in Fairmont! And, we will be here for 8 days hanging out with the family! I'm looking forward to time at the Hot Springs, beach and kayaking down this river again! It will a little quieter around here, but I have a few posts lined up so it won't be totally quiet! 

I hope you all have a great weekend and week!
