Five on Friday - August 10, 2018

Happy Friday everyone! I hope you all have a great week - we have been enjoying our whole week out of town on a family vacation! 


Ahhh, is this not the most gorgeous view you could ask for out of your back door?! We are at the family cabin in Fairmont Hot Springs, B.C. and it's so gorgeous here! It's been a busy week my the kids, husband, his parents, his siblings, their significant others and kids - it's a house full! Plus, this weekend is there family reunion in Fairmont so all the extended family is hanging out with us here as well! 


And, I know it's been a little quiet around here; but, I do have a giveaway going on for Canadians right now on my Instagram! Follow the link to my Instagram and head to this Zoella Beauty product to win the Zoella Lip Oil! The giveaway is open until Sunday, so make sure to check it out! (Sorry, there is no direct link, but I pre-wrote this!)


Mmmm... have you guys tried Halo Top ice cream yet?! This is pretty new in Canada and it's "low calorie" and I've heard a few people talk about how yummy these are! This flavor Pancakes and Waffles is delicious!!! 


Is there anything nicer than receiving a little gift you love from a friend?! I helped a friend with foundation suggestions for her wedding (she is getting married in a small place and her base didn't last all day at her trial!), so I thought it would be helpful for her to find out that she likes. And, I went with her to Sephora and just helped her navigate everything in there. So, as a thank you gift, she got me my favorite Lush product - Scrubee!!! So sweet!


It's time for a look at what I declutter in July! I got the Dr. Brandt No More Baggage Under Eye Depuffing Gel in Boxycharm and I just wasn't interested in this - sort of tinted eye cream, but not really concealer. I didn't use it, so I have no thoughts, maybe it is great! I have finally admitted that these 2 banana powders from Hard Candy and Ben Nye are just too dark for my skin tone! The Burt's Bees eyeshadows weren't great - I liked everything else in the makeup line; but, these just didn't perform well for me! The Just Lash lashes were a random buy for me and they weren't great quality. And lastly, the Crown Brush Fuego palette came in my Boxycharm and the reviews are great; but, it smelled a little chemically for me so I thought I would just pass on it. 

I hope you all have a great weekend! 


  1. I'm not kidding when I say we probably eat 2-3 containers of Halo Top (Sea Salt & Caramel) tubs a week. The stuff is INSANELY good, low on calories and high enough in protein. I wish it wasn't so expensive here (about $7 a tub) but I love it so much and the calorie count is so low that really, I'm not complaining THAT much. SO. FRIGGING. GOOD.

    1. Oooh - I'm going to have to try that kind! Sounds delish - I agree with the price; but, damn it's good!
