October 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! But, over the past couple of months, I got a little less strict and went over budget! (I still think I'm being a little more thoughtful in my purchases while I go overboard!)


October 2019 What I Bought - Monthly Haul!
Everything in this post was purchased by me

CVS Shopping Haul ~ $190.13 CAN. On my trip to Disneyland, I had to make a stop at CVS and I went to town! Clearly, I didn't think that I spent this much, but I did convert this to CAN. There was so many masks that aren't available in Canada so I bought one of EVERYTHING!!!! There was new masks from Garnier, hydrogel Burt's Bees masks, Freeman body masks, and lots of Peach Slices masks! I can't wait to try all of these!

Halloween Bath Bombs!

Who's getting excited for All Hallow's Eve tomorrow?! I love anything Halloween, so I'm always looking for good spooky bath goodies for the occasion! 


Halloween Bath Bombs!

Is it just me, or have companies really stepped up their Halloween bath bomb game?! Wowie - there are some amazing bath bombs out there! I picked a couple from brands I know and love and a couple from a new brand to me that I couldn't resist!

Eevee Pokemon Makeup Halloween Look - October Shop My Stash

Eevee Eevee, Eevee! Happy Halloween everyone! I'm so excited about Halloween this year - we have a fun little Halloween party over the weekend, and Mitch and I paired our costumes to match Elliott's choice this year!

Manicure Monday - Pokeball Nails

Happy Manicure Monday everyone! I'm carrying on with Halloween nails and if don't think these scream Halloween, they do to me because my costume is a Pokemon! Any guesses who I will be?! 

Manicure Monday - Pokeball Nails
Some polishes were received in PR

I thought this would be a fun way to tie my nails in to my costume! If you can believe it, I've never been in to Pokemon - I didn't watch it growing up and my older son liked the cards and characters, but never really watched the show. And now my youngest son loves watching Pokemon on Netflix so I've seen a whole lot of it now!

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!

Masque Bar Pretty Animalz Sloth Clarifying Sheet Mask ~ $3.99 CAN. This Sloth Character Print sheet mask is enriched with extracts that help hydrate and moisturize your face for a soothed appearance.

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!)

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!

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).

Etude House Happy With Piglet Jelly Mousse Blusher and Liquid Lips Air Mousse

I always love an adorable Disney collection and K-Beauty brands always bring their A-game with these collections! 


Etude House Happy With Piglet Jelly Mousse Blusher and Liquid Lips Air Mousse

I purchased these products myself

I've talked about Etude House lots on the blog before; but, it's been a little while! I could not resist trying a few things from the "Happy With Piglet" collection!
