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

Skincare Saturday - Kosmea Energising Radiance Mask

I get so excited when I'm introduced to new brands to me that have philosophies and products that I really like! Kosmea is Australian natural skincare brand that is founded on the healing properties of organic rosehip oil! 

Product received as PR sample

When I first heard Rosehip oil, I got pretty excited because my skin responds really well to rose based products. But, looking in to it a little more, rosehip oil is the oil from inside the fruit left behind forma rose that has lost its petals, referred to as a "hip"!

Happy Friday everyone! Sorry it's been a bit of a slow week around here - this Summer has been absolutely crazy (can you believe we are halfway through August already?! Holy moly!)

I received a Topbox Circle kit that came with a couple samples of the Almay Lip Vibes lipstick and a Doucce eyeliner! The shade of lipstick I'm wearing is Go Wild and it's a pretty light nude and the Doucce is a bright blue eyeliner that looks awesome on the waterline!

The Body Shop Is Bananas - B - A - N - A - N - A - S

I generally start out all of these posts by professing my love for the featured ingredients, and this post is no difference, I love banana products! So, when I saw all the banana products from The Body Shop, I went bananas and picked a bunch of them up!

I have to say that I used to use The Body Shop banana shampoo and conditioner around 15 years ago when I was in high school and I couldn't use anything else - I absolutely loved them! I was so sad when they discontinued the line and when they relaunched it a year or so ago, I was really nervous to try it because I was worried it wouldn't be the same for me!

Happy Manicure Monday! I'm on a roll this week and last week with actual nail art on my mani monday posts - woo hoo! 

Manicure Monday - Coral Cactus Nails!

I purchased all products featured - this post contains affiliate links

We got back from our week long family trip last weekend in Fairmont, B.C. this past weekend and we had a blast! It was a crazy, busy week - there was 8 adults and 5 kids (1 teenager, 3 toddler boys and a baby). My husbands family has a beautiful cabin on the river and we love going out there! Fairmont is such a beautiful area and we spent lots of time at the Hot Springs, on the river, and went in to Invermere a few times! Such a great time with the family!

July 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 , 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!



July 2019 What I Bought - Monthly Haul!
All products purchased by me

Anthropologie Mask Haul ~ $26.78 CAN. I always love the mask brands that they have at Anthropologie and last time I was shopping, they had a 20% off skincare sale! So, I picked up 3 masks from Happy Skin and a mask from Meg (new brands to me), plus 2 masks from Leaders (a favourite brand of mine!). I'm very excited to try all of these masks!

Anastasia Beverly Hills Dipbrow Gel - Review and Makeup Look

Have you ever tried a product and fell in love with it instantly?! I can tell you that love-at-first-try happened with the new Anastasia Beverly Hills Dipbrow Gel!

You know what's even crazier about falling instantly in love with this product? I've never actually tried the iconic ABH Dipbrow pomade! I just rarely use a pomade so it wasn't a product that made me need to try it!

Manicure Monday - Summer Floral Nail Art

Happy Manicure Monday! I think it's been a long time since I've done nail art here as it's been a crazy busy Summer, so it was so amazing to sit down and do a little art for this week!

Five on Friday - August 2, 2019

Happy Friday everyone! I hope you've had a great week! We have been in Fairmont for the whole week enjoying some family time! My husband's whole family and all our kids are together for a week (and since I'm pre-writing this, I can say in advance that's it been lots of fun and totally crazy all at the same time!)

Shark Week - Lush's Shark Fin Soap and Working To #SaveSharks

Shark Week is carrying on and I hope you are enjoying watching it - I'm away at the cabin for the week, so I'm not watching; but, I did watch a very important shark documentary that has certainly stuck with me.


Shark Week - Lush's Shark Fin Soap and Working To #SaveSharks
This soap was purchased by me and the money was happily donated to the charity

Each year on World Ocean Day, June 8, Lush released a limited edition shark fin soap - it's a pretty iconic soap and they always sell out quickly. World Ocean Day is to remind everyone of the importance that oceans play in our every day lives. The planet is 70% ocean and we get 70% of our oxygen from our oceans!

Manicure Monday - Baby Shark Nail Art

Baby Shark, Do do doo do do do do, Baby Shark, Do do doo do do do do, Mama Shark! Okay, for those of you who don't have a toddler that you need to sing this song to every day - consider yourself lucky! Baby Shark is basically a daily song and dance in our house, so it makes sense that this year's Shark Week nails are Baby Shark themed nails! 

Manicure Monday - Baby Shark Nail Art

So, we are keeping the July #CBBxManiMonday theme of "glitter" going for this week, and I went with more of a shimmery/glittery base polish for my Shark nails!

Time for a check in on my Summer Project Pan! I decided to do a little project pan where I try to pan or use up 4 products in the 4 months of Summer (also, I'm a bit of an idiot and forgot in actually Summer lasts 3 months, but I was thinking literally in June, July, August, and September - so whoops, it too late to change now!) If you want to see the start of this project pan, you can see it here

July Shop My Stash - My Light, Quick Summer Makeup Look

While I'm a total makeup addict and I generally wear a full face of makeup, I do like to lighten things up for the Summer and try and go with lighter base products and an overall lighter look! 


July Shop My Stash - My Light, Quick Summer Makeup Look
Some products may have been received in PR - this post contains affiliate links

So for my July Shop My Stash, I thought I'd share just that easy Summer look - these products are nice and light; but, they can still be out worn on a hot day and will stay put (with the assistance of a solid setting spray!)

Manicure Monday - Multicolour Pink Nails!

Happy Monday everyone! I always feel like the week is going to be great when I have pink nails - they are just so fantastic to wake up to every day and look at - it's clearly my favourite colour! 


Manicure Monday - Multicolour Pink Nails!
Some polishes were received as PR samples - this post contains affiliate links

I have been loving the multi-colour nail trend I've been seeing all over lately - all the nails are the same colour family with just little variations on each nail, and I think it looks so good! So, I had to jump on the bandwagon!

June 2019 - Monthly Empties and Month in Masks!

Here's a look at my beauty garbage from June (yes, I know this is a super late Empties post!):


June 2019 - Monthly Empties and Month in Masks!

Mac Prep + Prime Fix+ ~ $33.00 CAN. A lightweight water mist that finishes makeup, while gently soothing and refreshing skin. 

I love Fix Plus - it's a solid formula of a priming and setting mist! I featured this product way back in my Monthly Favourites in June 2016 and I just talked about it recently in my Favourite Setting Sprays post! I've purchased this in mini scented versions and I love it all. It's a great priming and light setting spray! 
Repurchase: Yes!

It's time for a look at my Summer 2019 Reading List! I always like to pick a variety of books to read over the holidays (although, if I'm honest with myself I don't always get through them all), so I have a variety of humour and love stories to the magical and deep - exactly the mixture of books I like! If you have GoodReads and want to connect - you can find me here! (I love seeing what everyone is reading and find something new for myself!)

A Lovely Tinted Lip Balm ~ Dior Lip Glow in Pink Glow

My ultimate favourite type of lip product is a tinted lip balm - it's just my go-to every day lip product! I wear a tinted lip balm all day, every day basically; while I'm working, while I'm out with the family, while I'm doing nothing... You name it, it takes a "special" occasion to get me to wear an actual lipstick! 

 A Lovely Tinted Lip Balm ~ Dior Lip Glow in Pink Glow
This product was purchased by me - this post contains affiliate links

Lately, I've started splurging a little more on my tinted lip balms - I think because I'm wearing them every day all day on my lips, why not indulge a little bit in it?! It's constantly on my lips so it should be a really great product!

My Favourite Canadian Beauty Products Currently In My Collection

For the month of July, the Canadian Beauty Bloggers group is featuring Canadian Brands all month long, and I thought what better way than to share my top 10 products from Canadian beauty brands that I currently have in my collection! 


My Favourite Canadian Beauty Products Currently In My Collection
Some posts may have been received as PR samples - this post contains affiliate links

I have a good mix of skincare and makeup products from a mixture of large and small brands! I know there is a ton of amazing Canadian brands out there and I can't touch on them all here, which is why I'm focusing on only the products that are currently in my collection! I've used other amazing products from great Canadian brands in the past and they are still loved!

Skincare Sunday - Urban Outfitters UO Metallic Foil Sheet Masks

I've only tried a couple of foil masks before and I've really enjoyed the ones that I've tried - there is something about the "foil" layer that helps traps the essence in so it really delivers to the skin! 


Urban Outfitters UO Metallic Foil Sheet Masks
I received these masks as gifts from a friend - this post contains affiliate links

So, when I received these Urban Outfitters foil masks as a gift, I couldn't wait to try them! These UO Metallic Foil Sheet Masks come in 4 different types for 4 different targeted concerns and they are described as "mixed metallic metal sheet masks, available exclusively at UO. Each mask targets specific concerns with specially-selected ingredients that leave skin balanced and glowing in 20 minutes or less!" They are $5.00 CAN each or 2 for $6.00 CAN.

Five on Saturday - July 13, 2019

Happy Saturday everyone! I feel like I'm just getting everything together after a whirlwind couple of weeks of vacation! We just got home on Tuesday; but, went right in to Stampede and back to work - I'm looking forward to this weekend! As much I love being on vacation, I am happy to be home!

Harry Potter Custom Vans

I was so excited when Vans released their Harry Potter line! I ended up deciding to make a custom pair - and here they are!!! I love how awesome this main custom material is - it is so gorgeous! I added some green for Slytherin to the heel and tongue and then added touches of black and grey to tie the fabrics together! These turned out amazing - if you are interested in checking out their custom options, you can go their website here

Natasha Denona Mini Nude Eyeshadow Palette - Swatches, Review and Look!

I said many times on here before how much I love mini eyeshadow palettes - they are cute, compact and have a quick colour scheme that is easy to put a look together with!

I've also made it pretty clear that I love the mini Natasha Denona palettes - the 3 I tried in 2018 made my Best of 2018 Makeup Discoveries! So, the Mini Nude palette was released a little while ago and I didn't jump immediately; but, after I did a huge declutter a few months ago, I got rid of quite a few older neutral palettes and there was room for a new nude palette!

Too Faced Peaches & Cream Crystal Whips Long-Wearing Shimmering Eye Shadow Veil in Totally Whipped

I love a good shimmery, glittery liquid shadow - they are so easy to pop on the lid and help add some quick glam to any eye look! I've tried them from a few different brands - Stila, Cover FX, Hard Candy and ColourPop and loved them all! I have a few more that I've picked and just keep wanting to try new brands!

Five on Friday - July 5, 2019

Happy Friday everyone! I hope you've all had a great week! We are enjoying a busy week of family time, so sorry for the impromptu lack of posts around here (I had some stuff planned and just got super busy!)

ONE

We are currently on vacation in Penticton visiting family! Last weekend for the Canada Day weekend we were in Edmonton for a basketball tournament so we had one day to reset and repack to leave for BC. It's been a fun; but, busy week! 

TWO



The coolest thing about this week so far has to be going on The Pipe Mountain Rollercoaster in Revelstoke, BC this week! We decided for our 8+ hour drives out to the Okanagan that we would stay overnight and do some fun stops along the way, because road trips with toddlers are not the funnest things! So, we stayed in Revelstoke and rode the Gondola and the mountain rollercoaster - what a fun ride and amazing experience!

June 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 , not because I need to; it's actually more to test myself and be more conscious about what I purchase. I also really want to make sure that I'm enjoying and using everything on my collection!

(Also, I know I went a little over - I started dipping in to this budget in May and thought I could reign it in a little; but, I think I did okay and thought everything through!)



ColourPop Haul ~ $77.27 CAN. Alright, this is the order that I placed in May knowing that I would be dipping well in to my June budget! But, I was very excited for the Main Squeeze palette - I've been loving the 9-pan monochromatic palettes ColourPop has been releasing lately, although none have made me grab one until now! And, I wanted to order right away as I wanted the Birthday Super Shock Shadow (which is really pretty this year!) To get free shipping, I also picked up a couple more Jelly Much shadows from the Villains collection, a couple of pressed glitters, and the eyeliner and mascara in black!

June Shop My Stash - My Go-To Full Face Weatherproof Stay All Day Makeup

Summertime always means outdoor events and hot weather, so I always need some go-to makeup that is weatherproof and will last all day! While it's great if you don't need to wear foundation or tend to wear lighter makeup in warm weather; but, if I'm going to a wedding or special occasion, I really want to wear a glam look and have it last the whole event!

Summer Project Pan - Use Up 4 Makeup Products in the 4 Months of Summer!

Okay, I'm not a project panner at all; but, I've been following along with some and I love the idea of watching myself complete or use a product - it feels so satisfying! Plus, the Canadian Beauty Bloggers group chose Project Pan as the theme for June, so it seemed like the perfect time to try panning!

I didn't want to go too crazy for my first "Project Pan" as I also have a Monthly Makeup Basket and Palette of the Week that I utilize to use up products in my collection.

Every time I think of the word "bright" when it comes with my nails I always think of this "Glamingo" polish from Nails Inc - it is this gorgeous, hot neon pink polish and it's so lovely!

I can't quite resist a printed character mask, and the Moschino teddy bear is just the cutest so I could not resist trying this mask!

LaSpa Naturals Mineral Sunscreen - SPF50 Ultra Sun Protection Stick

I've talked a fair bit on here about the importance of wearing sunscreen every day - I'm a pretty firm believer of proper sun protection! (I also really need to make up for years of sun damage from tanning beds and slathering myself in oil and frying outside!)


LaSpa Naturals Mineral Sunscreen - SPF50 Ultra Sun Protection Stick
Products received as PR samples - this post con

LaSpa was the first brand of mineral sunscreen I tried and I really liked them! Their products are 100% natural and use Zinc Oxide and Titanium Dioxide and those ingredients are natural mineral sun blocks that sit on your skin and stop both UVA and UVB rays from penetrating your skin. Also, where chemical filters take about 20 minutes to come in to effect, this sunscreen is effective immediately! Another benefit of mineral sunscreen is that it is marine safe - it is biodegradable and has no toxins that are damaging to marine life or coral reefs!

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

This lip sleeping mask is amazing! It made my Best of 2018 Makeup products because it was so good! This little sample lasted me for a couple of weeks, so this was a handy little sample and this is the best formula!

Okay, Sephora had a big Spring sale recently and these mini Pat McGrath palettes were on sale for 50% off - only $35 Canadian each (regular $70!) They were going in and out of stock quickly so I managed to pick up 2 of the 3 (I did want the bronzey one; but, didn't manage to get one!) I've never tried Pat McGrath and I can't wait to try these!

Hard Candy Plumping Serum Volumizing Lipgloss in Flower Child and Birthday Suit

I've mentioned before that I'm a little slow jumping on the lipgloss bandwagon (I just love the security of a liquid lipstick); but, as more and more brands are coming out with fabulous lipgloss formulas, the more I'm making the shift to a glossy lip!

I saw these recently on Cosmetic Proof and I couldn't resist picking them up in my latest Shopper's order! Again, I'm super excited to see drugstore brands making skincare and masking more accessible and these ones from St. Ives sounded really good! I really like the packaging too!

Five on Saturday - June 8, 2019

Happy Saturday everyone! I hope you've had a great week - mine has been crazy! I've been out of town twice this week for work (once overnight) so it's made for a long week!

It's time for a look at my June Monthly Makeup Basket! Each month I've been picking a few different face products to focus on for the month! I'm really trying to focus this year on using and enjoying my whole makeup collection!

OPI Always Bare For You - Spring 2019 Neutral Polish Collection

I'm doubling up on nail posts this week and I'm so excited to share the new OPI Always Bare For You Spring 2019 collection!

This collection is all about embracing soft, sheer nails with a delicate hint of colour for a subtle polish look! I wanted to talk about this collection in June because this is the start of Wedding season, and this collection is perfect for weddings!

May 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 , not because I need to; it's actually more to test myself and be more conscious about what I purchase. I also really want to make sure that I'm enjoying and using everything on my collection!


(Let's note before we get in to it, I spent more than I intended on spending; and dipped in to June's budget early - I will save it for next month though) But, I'm happy with the purchases, but I would like to be a little more responsible for next month! 

May 2019 What I Bought - Monthly Haul!

Iceland Blue Lagoon Mask ~ $50.00 CAN. So, this product was a total extra splurge and I knew that I was allowing myself to purchase this outside of my budget as I love a good mask splurge. I had a friend travelling to Iceland and going to the Blue Lagoon and offered to bring me back a mask! So, this is really cool and I'm very excited to try this out!
