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! 


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.

I have been really happy with the Maniology (previously Bundle Monster) products that I have tried, so that was great to try! This box is the November 2018 box that was a Fall theme box -  the polishes and plates were pretty! The December Winter theme box looks great too; but, I am going to pass on the subscription for now! I think it's one that I will sign up for every once in a while when I want some new plates and polishes for a reasonable price! 


Ahhh.... this week we took Elliott to meet Santa and he did so good! If I'm being honest, I secretly wanted an adorable screaming baby picture; but, my kid happens to be very easy going. He has been practising "Ho Ho Ho"ing and was super cute and very sweet with Santa! 


Pantone just announced their Color of the Year for 2019 and it is Living Coral! What a beautiful color - I also loved last year's Ultra Violet. But, coral is gorgeous - I'm thinking of all the beautiful nails and makeup I could do with this shade! 

I really do try and think about using the Color of the Year for makeup looks; but, I feel like halfway through the year, it tends to get forgotten. But, this shade is so perfect for Spring and Summer, so I won't be forgetting about it! 

Do you pay attention to the Color of the Year?


Call me crazy; but, I haven't actually tried a tea latte until very recently! I have been reading about them on Tea and Nail Polish for a while and really wanted to try making my own! Then, I read about an Eggnog Tea Latte on Prairie Beauty Love and I had to try that!

It's really quite easy - warm up the eggnog or milk and froth, then add steeped tea and drink! It's so yummy! I personally tend to use tea that isn't caffeinated, such as Rooibos teas - this Chocolate Frog one from Tea Hippie is sooo good!


Earlier this week, we snuck in our family photo session for our Christmas cards - how stinkin cute are these matching onesies?! I love silly Christmas cards. We also had reindeer hats for our cats and tried to get them in on it; but, those pictures did not turn out! 

I hope you all have a great weekend!
