Creme de la Creme Beauty Lounge Custom Lipstick & Makeup in Sherwood Park, Alberta

In December I was sent to Edmonton, AB for some work training and I was pretty excited to pay a visit to the Creme de la Creme Beauty Lounge to create a custom lipstick! The brand was brought to my attention when a few fellow Canadian bloggers shared about them last year - they are an Alberta beauty brand and everything is made in their shop! What's really fun about the brand is that they focus on artisan bespoke makeup!

What I didn't realize until I got there, was that everything is made fresh as you order it! I thought just the custom lipstick would be made in front of me, but as I picked out an eyeshadow and nail polish, I was so surprised that they were made right then and there in the store!

Manicure Monday - Green Foliage Stamped Nails

Happy Manicure Monday! I hope you all had a great weekend! Can you believe it March already?! Wow!

Two of the OPI polishes were received as PR samples

I'm finding it hard to believe that it is March already - we are approaching a year of pandemic restrictions and it feels pretty crazy! But, I'm trying to carry on with life as normal as we can right now!

Monthly Beauty Haul - February 2021

I always love these haul posts - it's a way to keep track of everything that I picked up every month. I don't always blog about everything I pick up (I try to), but if you ever spot anything in here that you really want me to talk about, let me know! 

Last year, I got a little crazy about trying to stick to a crazy budget and this year I'm just going to buy what I want and try and be reasonable about my purchases! 

(Also, I'm only sharing what I received every month now since I'm not trying to stick to a crazy budget, so some things I ordered in February will show up in my March haul now!)

Auric Beauty Haul ~ $131.77 CAN. I was so excited when Samantha Ravndahl announced her brand and I loved her announcement video, so I was very excited to pick up one of the Glow Lusts and one Smoke Reflect shadow - I can't wait to use both of these! The cost I paid in Canadian includes both products, shipping and conversion with no duties on my order! I will be reviewing these as soon as I can try them!

I'm so excited - Costco has Hunter Boots on for a great price! (I think they are $100 in store, but I just picked these up online for $115 with free shipping!) I was so excited - I've really wanted a short pair (a little easier to wear and more versatile!) They were a great find!

Project Pan 21 in 2021 ~ Update #1

I really enjoyed working on a project pan last, it really made me enjoy using up older products in my collection, so I was excited to start a new project pan in 2021 - I am hoping to use up or hit pan on 21 products in 2021! I will again, be focusing on all makeup products as I am pretty good about working through my skincare products.

I started the project off with the first 10 products and will treat this like a rolling project - once I reach my goal, I will add a new product to the mix! I have a mix of goals between finishing products and hitting pan, so this should be a lot of fun! I also picked a mix of products that I will reach my goals quickly on and some that may take close to the whole project to reach! I will update every two months:
