Manicure Monday - Sunflower Nails

Happy Manicure Monday everyone! Hope you all had a great weekend - it was rainy and snowy here all weekend, but at least that means everything will be green and we can start to have some flowers soon!

But until we have real flowers, chocolate flowers will do just fine, right?! I Purdy's chocolates had the cutest chocolate lollipops for Mother's Day, so naturally I hinted very strongly that the boys should pick some up and they got a delicious sunflower for me!

Monthly Beauty Empties - March & April 2021

Here's a look at my March and April Beauty Empties:

Milk Makeup Kush High Volumizing Mascara ~ sample size shown (full size is $32.00 CAN). A high-volume mascara formulated with heart-shaped fibers, conditioning hemp-derived cannabis seed oil, and pure pigments for an intense black finish.

I think a lot of the mascaras I've been trying lately have not been living up to their claims, and this one finally did! It is very volumizing and looks fantastic on my lashes - it makes them full and dark and keeps my lashes full and thick all day! I think it may smudge a tiny bit after a really long day, but I'm pretty picky about that and I didn't mind after the end because it looked so nice on the lashes! 
Repurchase: Maybe

Relaxing Bubblebath Night With Dr. Teals Melatonin Epsom Salts and Foaming Bath

It's been a week around here (or if we are being real, it's been a year, right?!) I know that my general stress have been pretty high since the pandemic and all this up and down with restrictions, plus personal and work things has me feeling pretty wound up and burnt out lately.

All of this has been piling up and was impacting my sleep, so I have started to be very deliberate in making sure I'm implementing a solid bedtime routine to help me settle and make sure I'm sleeping well.

Five on Friday - May 7, 2021 ~ XO Treatment Room Super Mom Box, Dynamite Clothing Haul, Giveaways I Won, Bones Coffee, and April Declutter

Happy May everyone - can you believe we are in the month of May already?! Aaaannnddd, Alberta just announced tougher lock downs because we are having crazy covid cases and the rates compared to the rest of the country is crazy! So, just trying to stick it out a little longer and stay positive! I hope everyone is doing well. 

ONE 

I purchased everything in this post, except the things I won that I'm sharing

I was really hoping to go for a facial this Mother's Day for a relaxing day, but, of course with new restrictions, that is not going to happen at all! So, I planned ahead in case and ordered this lovely Super Mom Box by XO Treatment Room! Everything is made by the owner Annie, and she has fabulous formulas! This comes with everything you need for a relaxing spa night it: cleanser, microfibre cloth, super mask and brush applicator, nighttime facial oil, bath soak (or scrub), a candle and a do not disturb sign. So many goodies, all for $200!

Dyson AirWrap Styler - Volume + Shape Set

It's finally time for my long anticipated review of the Dyson Airwrap Styper! I have been looking forward to putting this review together for a few months now - I picked this up back in January, but this baby is pricey so I wanted to make sure that my review was thorough and I had lots of chances to try it out before coming to my final conclusions about it! 

Also, spoiler alert - if you saw my April Monthly Favourites, then you know this made it and I love it! 

Dyson AirWrap Styler - Volume + Shape Set
I purchased this all by myself (with the assistance of points)

I have to preface this review in that I did not pay full price for this set - it is sold at Shopper's Drug Mart Beauty Boutique and I saved up $500 worth of PC Optimum points (the maximum you can redeem at a time) and waited until they had a "Spend Your Points" event, so I got an extra $100 off, saving me $600 on this! It was my best purchase with points and even the lady at the till was pretty excited for me!
