Halloween Look - Lady Stoneheart from Game of Thrones

Early this year when Game of Thrones sadly came to an end, we went to a costume party and I dressed up as my favourite character - Lady Stoneheart!

For those of you that are only TV show lovers and didn't quite get in to the book series (that is ginormous and still unfinished), then you would have sadly missed out on one of the best characters in the series! I truly think she should have been in the T.V. series as she was pretty bad-ass and I was sad when they didn't put her in at all!

I usually have a ton of hand-painted nail art for Halloween as it's some of my favourite nail art; but, I have been having some fun improving my stamping game with a bunch of new Halloween themed nail stamping plates and I've been loving it!

Skincare Sunday - Masque Bar Pretty Animalz Sloth Clarifying Sheet Mask

Happy Skincare Sunday everyone! Today, October 20th, is also Sloth Day, so naturally I found a sloth mask for the occasion! Sloth Day is really about bringing awareness to the animals - while sloths are not endangered animals (yet), they are at risk - especially with deforestation happening in South America. I love animals and sloths are adorable. Make sure you check out an organization that you like if you are interested in how you can help!

Happy Friday everyone! I hope you all have had a great week - I love a short work week, so it was nice to have a long weekend and only a 4 day work week!

Besame Sleeping Beauty Collection ~ Try-on and Review

I've made it pretty clear that I love me a Disney beauty collection - it pretty much sucks me in every time; but, I was truly excited when Besame announced that in honour of the 60th Anniversary of Sleeping Beauty, they were releasing a collection! Besame puts in an extraordinary effort in to their collections, so I knew this was going to be exceptional! 


Besame Sleeping Beauty Collection
All products were purchased by me

This collection includes an eyeshadow palette, three lipsticks, a blush palette, a translucent powder, a cream rouge and a vanity mirror. As much as I wanted to go crazy and try everything, I only picked up the Briar Rose Blush Palette, Auroras Translucent Powder, and Sleeping Beauty Pink lipstick.

New Miss So...? Fragrances and a Giveaway!

I tend not to talk about scents too much here on the blog, not because I don't use or like them; but, because I'm actually pretty bad at describing scents! 

But, I wanted to share some new Miss So...? Perfume Mists and Eau Fraiche scents with you, because they smell great - I love a mist for daily wear as it's a bit lighter than a full perfume - and because Farley Co. was kind enough to offer a giveaway for my Canadian readers (make sure to check the bottom of the post!)


New Miss So...? Fragrances and a Giveaway!
Products provided as PR samples - this post contains affiliate links

I actually really like that Miss So...? released these scents as both a perfume mist and an Eau Fraiche. An Eau Fraiche is similar to a perfume, but it contains a little less of the fragrance, making it a light lighter than a perfume. But, the scent is still great on me and again, I prefer a little lighter scent overall (plus, it helps keeps this line affordable and these are all under $15 at Walmart!)

Manicure Monday - Hocus Pocus Maniology September Mani x Me Nails!

I love a unique colour combination for any season or holiday, but when I saw the pink and glittery black polish in the September 2019 Maniology Mani x Me Hocus Pocus subscription, I knew I needed that colour combo for my Halloween nails this year! 

Manicure Monday - Hocus Pocus Maniology September Mani x Me Nails!
I purchased the subscriptions these polishes were in

This holographic black polish is so stunning and I love the pop of witchy and fun Halloweeny stamp designs! How fun are these spooky cats and Ouija board accents?! I love them - I'm not opposed to ouija boards or anything else occultish!

September 2019 - Monthly Empties

Time to dig in to my beauty garbage:


September 2019 - Monthly Empties
Some products were received as PR samples - this post contains affiliate links

Smashbox Photo Finish Primerizer ~ sample shown (full size is $20.00 - $55.00 CAN). A face primer and moisturizer in one that delivers 24-hour hydration and powerful primer benefits in the lightest possible texture.

I've heard rave reviews about primerizer and I thought it was okay - I actually thought it was a little thin and I'm not sure that it really let the makeup adhere better or last longer, so it didn't do what i expected. It was moisturizing and felt nice on my face, but that's not enough for me to like a primer! 
Repurchase: Not likely

It's time for a look at my Fall 2019 Reading List! I always like to pick a variety of books to read over the season, although I do think these books are all a little darker and intense if I'm not mistaken - and I do still think there is a good mix of genres!

Manicure Monday - Wednesday Addams Halloween Stamped Nails

It's October and I'm in full on Halloween mode (truly if I'm being honest, I've been in Halloween mode for the last couple of weeks planning costumes and a party!), but now it's officially time to get my Halloween nails on!!!

How cute does the new Addams Family movie coming out this week look?! I just saw the preview last week and it looks so cute! And, it had me pumped to watch all the old Addams Family movies too (Christina Ricci is the best - of course I grew up with her in all my childhood movies).

September 2019 What I Bought - Monthly Haul!

Time for a look at everything I picked up this month - I really love these Monthly Haul posts - they give me a way to share everything I pick up each month as I don't always post about everything I get!

For 2019, I put myself on "stricter" $100 a month budget (I'm getting a little less strict as the year goes on unfortunately), not because I need to; it's actually to be more conscious about what I purchase. I also really want to make sure that I'm enjoying and using everything on my collection!


September 2019 What I Bought - Monthly Haul!
I purchased everything in this post

Besame order ~ $123.22 CAN. Okay, I could absolutely NOT resist this Besame and Sleeping Beauty collection! Besame doesn't just throw a Disney collection together, they actually work with the movie and colour matches everything perfectly to the movie! I haven't been this excited about a makeup collection in a while and I didn't even pick up the eyeshadow palette! I got the highlighter and blush palette, the translucent powder, and the Sleeping Beauty pink lipstick. Plus, Besame added a hand cream because orders were a little slow moving with the demand of this collection!

Happy Friday everyone! It's the first week of Fall already! I hope you've all had a great week! I wish Calgary had a longer Fall, I mentioned this already; but, we get two days of Fall this week and then boom Winter! We went from +20 earlier this week to expecting -2 and snow all weekend!

We've been sick all week here; but, are slowly on the mend and good thing too - we are getting excited because we are leaving for Disneyland on Monday! Woo hoo I can't wait! I love Disneyland and am looking forward to the Star Wars Galaxy's Edge and the Halloween parties there! So, things will be a little quieter around here next week as I'm not bringing my computer, but will have some posts lined up while I'm away!

End of Summer Project Pan Wrap-up!

I've been watching project pans for years and it's not something I've really gotten in to until recently! This past year I've been making a real conscious effort to use and enjoy the products in my collection, including Shop My Stash posts and Monthly Makeup Baskets, so this is just another way to use the products that I already own! 


End of Summer Project Pan Wrap-up!
Some products may have been received as PR - this post contains affiliate links

I thought for my first endeavour in to Project Panning that I would keep it easy and simple - use 4 products in the Summer months! I picked a variety of makeup products and set up a couple of different goals over the months!

Manicure Monday - Fall Stamped Nails and Essie Gorge-ous Geodes

Skincare Sunday - First 50 days of my #100DaysofSheetMasks

If you've been following along my instagram stories then you know on August 1 I started a #100DaysofSheetMasks challenge, where I basically wear a sheet mask for 100 days straight! I've been really wanting to get in to masking more frequently again, so I thought this challenge was the perfect way!

September 2019 - Four Mosa Sheet Mask Kit Subscription

I'm a sucker for subscription boxes - you know that this blog was started as a subscription review blog and expanded in to a beauty blog over the years. I'm also a sucker for sheet masks, so naturally I feel the need to try all the sheet mask subscriptions I can! 


September 2019 - Four Mosa Sheet Mask Kit Subscription

I felt really compelled to try Four Mosa because it is founded in Calgary, AB - where I live and who doesn't love to support a local company?! This September 2019 Sheet Mask Kit is the first month in this subscription!

August 2019 - Monthly Empties

Time for a look at my August Beauty Empties: 


August 2019 - Monthly Empties
Some products may have been received as PR samples - this post contains affiliate links

Revlon ColorStay Full Cover Foundation in 150 Buff ~ $20.99 CAN. Revlon ColorStay Full Cover Foundation provides an amazing, full coverage perfected look that lasts all day long. 

I fell in love pretty instantly with this foundation - it made my March Favourites and you can see a full look at this product on me here! It's a very neat texture - it almost feels whipped, or as Revlon refers to it as velvet. It applies really softly and nicely; but, dries down nicely and doesn't stay tacky at all and it wears all day - well around 10 hours without breaking up on my combo skin! I have noticed it can disappear from the nose a touch, so I'm careful with my powder; but, I loved the coverage of this. I really like this foundation!
Repurchase: Yes

Five on Friday - September 13, 2019

Happy Friday the 13th! Did you know that not only is today Friday the 13th but it's also a Full Moon tonight?! So, it was fun that for a facilitation course I was doing all week ended with me doing a presentation on magic and Harry Potter! 

And, that's why it's been a super quiet week around here - I have been in Edmonton for work all week and I thought I would have a little more time for myself! But, I treated myself to a mani pedi night and a night of shopping, so I did still take some time for myself!

ColourPop Haul, Swatches and Look - Main Squeeze, Orange You Glad?, Uh-Huh Honey, Pressed Glitters, Lip Crayons, and BFF Mascara and Liner!

Time for a huuuuuge Colourpop Haul! I have been collecting ColourPop orders from December to July and it's taken me a little while to try everything out! (I seriously hold on to everything until I feel like I can take pictures and use it and blog about it!) So, this whole "haul" is actually the result of a couple of different orders!

Time for a look at everything I picked up this month - I really love these Monthly Haul posts - they give me a way to share everything I pick up each month as I don't always post about everything I get!

For 2019, I put myself on stricter $100 a month budget (I'm getting a little less strict as the year goes on unfortunately), not because I need to; it's actually to be more conscious about what I purchase. I also really want to make sure that I'm enjoying and using everything on my collection!

ColourPop Haul ~ $71.17 CAN ($52.20 US). I have resisted quite a few of the Colourpop monochromatic palettes, but when the Orange You Glad palette was released, I couldn't resist!

Manicure Monday - Best Summer Nail Art Looks!

Happy Monday everyone! I know I'm going to sound so lame, but how is August already halfway over?! I feel like Summer has flown by and I cannot stay on top of anything - I feel like I have no time! It's crazy! 

This whole month our #CBBxManiMonday group is doing things a little bit different and we are searching #summernails and picking our inspiration from what we find - I saw lots of fun, fruity nails and I had amazing fruit nails last year, so on top of having no time, and my super cute cactus nails looking amazing, I thought I'd showcase some of my past favourite Summer nail looks! 

Manicure Monday - Best Summer Nail Art Looks!
These nail looks may use nail polishes sent in PR

July 2019 - Monthly Empties & Month in Masks

Time to look at my July beauty garbage:

July 2019 - Monthly Empties & Month in Masks
Some products may have been received in PR - this post contains affiliate links

Hard Candy Setting Spray - Long Wear ~ $6.98 CAN. A weightless spray that locks in makeup for all day wear.

This came in a hard candy set and the setting spray itself worked well and I thought it helped extend the longevity of my makeup; but, the nozzle sprays this product out too thick, if that makes sense. I prefer a finer spray so that it doesn't leave any dots on my face.
Repurchase: Maybe, I would prefer if the nozzle was changed
