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!)

It's time for a look at my August 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! 

For August the products I'm focusing on are: 
  • Rodial Blusher in Copacabana - this is a carry over blush from July - I love the shade; but, I never reach for this because it's quite bright. So I'm hoping to get some use out if it this month! 
  • Wet n Wild Color Icon Baked Blush in Don't Flutter Yourself ~ this is a really pretty baby pink blush that again is a shade, I just don't use it that often at all! 
  • NYX Duo Chromatic Illuminating Powder in Lavender Steel ~ this is such a pretty highlighter and I like the purple - it's rarely used; but, a gorgeous shade! 
  • Wet n Wild Color Icon Rainbow Highlighter in Bronzed Over the Rainbow ~ this is a favourite highlighter - it's a really nice, champagney gold and is a really great every day highlighter! 
  • Wet n Wild MegaGlo Loose Highlighting Powder in "Written in the Stars" ~ this is a gorgeous highlighter and I never reach for a loose highlighter, so I'm hoping to use this more too! 
So, this month has a pretty common theme - a bunch of pretty products that are a little forgotten or not used in my collection! Here's to using them more this month! 


A couple of weeks ago I raved about the TNA Speed Joggers I picked up in a navy blue - well turns out that they are AMAZING and a must wear ever day, so I placed another order to pick up the same pants in Black and they are fabulous! I also picked up a pair of TNA Atmosphere Leggings up in a grey shade and they fit really well and were actually long enough for me, so I picked them up in black as well!  

So I also picked up 2 pairs of shorts (because I do not have enough shorts!): I picked up The Constant Helena Short in Riverbend (an olive green), and the TNA Trope Shorts in Black. These shorts are both great and super comfortable! And I picked up the The Group by Babaton Foundation Knot Tee in White - this shirt is so amazing, soft and fits so well. I love that it's a longer style with a knot front, so it's flattering on me! I'm super happy with this order - everything has fit and worked well for me! 


I was pretty happy when I saw that Cupshe bathing suits were available on Amazon - it beats ordering from overseas, waiting a long time for the order, and then paying duties on them! So, this is the Striped Halter onepiece and a got a medium and it fits great! 


I'm super excited to have won a giveaway from Cosmetic Proof and Sitka Naturals for these Orgaid Organic Sheet masks and I can't wait to give these a try! They sound great! Orgaid is a new brand to me and I haven't tried anything from them so I can't wait! 


And a few freebies I've received lately:

I've received a Topbox Circle recently for this Dove deodorant; but, it's weirdly said not to do anything for the campaign? I will still give it a shot! 

And, in my Orgaid gift bag with the mask, I got a few extra goodies from Mad Hippie to try out! And, this Sensodyne toothpaste will be fine! I love freebies! 

I hope you all have a great weekend! 


  1. *browsing amazon for cupshe* lol! I love that bathing suit!
    Congrats on winning the sheet masks, I LOVED the Vit C one so much, there was just something intoxicating about the scent for me. And yay for freebies!
    I buy that Dove deodorant in bulk at Costco, it's all I use. :-)

    1. Thanks - it's such a good suit! I love it! And I can't wait to try the sheet masks!
