Physicians Formula Rose All Day Petal Glow in Petal Pink

I'm a sucker for cute packaging, I can't help it so when I saw these Physician's Formula Rosé All Day Petal Glow highlighters, I had to try one!

This month the Canadian Beauty Bloggers are featuring Physicians Formula and I have a bit of a confession to make - I haven't really tried a ton of Physicians Formula (actually, I can't think of a single product from them that I've tried! Not even Butter Bronzer).

September 2019 - Four Mosa Sheet Mask Kit Subscription

I'm a sucker for subscription boxes - you know that this blog was started as a subscription review blog and expanded in to a beauty blog over the years. I'm also a sucker for sheet masks, so naturally I feel the need to try all the sheet mask subscriptions I can! 


September 2019 - Four Mosa Sheet Mask Kit Subscription

This subscription was purchased by me


I felt really compelled to try Four Mosa because it is founded in Calgary, AB - where I live and who doesn't love to support a local company?! This September 2019 Sheet Mask Kit is the first month in this subscription!

Manicure Monday - Mani & Pedi at The Nail Keeper Edmonton, Alberta

Happy Manicure Monday everyone! Last week I was in Edmonton, Alberta for a week of training for work. So, while I was away from home, I treated myself to a manicure/pedicure at The Nail Keeper

August 2019 - Monthly Empties

Time for a look at my August Beauty Empties: 


August 2019 - Monthly Empties
Some products may have been received as PR samples - this post contains affiliate links

Revlon ColorStay Full Cover Foundation in 150 Buff ~ $20.99 CAN. Revlon ColorStay Full Cover Foundation provides an amazing, full coverage perfected look that lasts all day long. 

I fell in love pretty instantly with this foundation - it made my March Favourites and you can see a full look at this product on me here! It's a very neat texture - it almost feels whipped, or as Revlon refers to it as velvet. It applies really softly and nicely; but, dries down nicely and doesn't stay tacky at all and it wears all day - well around 10 hours without breaking up on my combo skin! I have noticed it can disappear from the nose a touch, so I'm careful with my powder; but, I loved the coverage of this. I really like this foundation!
Repurchase: Yes

Five on Friday - September 13, 2019

Happy Friday the 13th! Did you know that not only is today Friday the 13th but it's also a Full Moon tonight?! So, it was fun that for a facilitation course I was doing all week ended with me doing a presentation on magic and Harry Potter! 

And, that's why it's been a super quiet week around here - I have been in Edmonton for work all week and I thought I would have a little more time for myself! But, I treated myself to a mani pedi night and a night of shopping, so I did still take some time for myself!

It's time for a look at my September 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!

ColourPop Haul, Swatches and Look - Main Squeeze, Orange You Glad?, Uh-Huh Honey, Pressed Glitters, Lip Crayons, and BFF Mascara and Liner!

Time for a huuuuuge Colourpop Haul! I have been collecting ColourPop orders from December to July and it's taken me a little while to try everything out! (I seriously hold on to everything until I feel like I can take pictures and use it and blog about it!) So, this whole "haul" is actually the result of a couple of different orders! 


ColourPop Haul, Swatches and Look - Main Squeeze, Orange You Glad?, Uh-Huh Honey, Pressed Glitters, Lip Crayons, and BFF Mascara and Liner!
I purchased everything in this order - this post contains affiliate links

So, the product that pushed this over the edge for me was the Orange You Glad? palette - it's my newest purchase and the product that I was the most excited about! I have been loving the monochromatic palettes that have been releasing and I was so happy to see the orange palette, so I picked it up immediately!

August 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 (I'm getting a little less strict as the year goes on unfortunately), 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!



August 2019 What I Bought - Monthly Haul!
Everything was purchased by me

ColourPop Haul ~ $71.17 CAN ($52.20 US). I have resisted quite a few of the Colourpop monochromatic palettes, but when the Orange You Glad palette was released, I couldn't resist! So, I also picked up the yellow Uh-Huh Honey palette, a couple of lip crayons, and a couple of zodiac Scorpio shadows!

Skincare Sunday - Inc.redible Baddie Double Perks Rainbow Sheet Boob Mask

Happy Skincare Sunday - I've been saving this awesome rainbow boob mask for this week because it's Calgary Pride and today is parade day, so what better time to share this fun mask?! This post is totally PG!

Pride Rainbow Eyeshadow Look - August Shop My Stash

The Pride festivities are carrying on here in Calgary - they started on August 23 and go through September 2, with the big parade being on September 1, 2019! And, I'm hoping to be in the parade this year with a friend's work organization, so I was so excited to practice some rainbow eye makeup for Pride while shopping my stash!

I absolutely LOVE how this rainbow makeup turned out - I had always thought that big, fun, bright eye looks weren't exactly what I could pull off and this ended being easy to do and so so so fun to wear! I will be replicating this look on Pride Parade day!

Manicure Monday - Best Summer Nail Art Looks!

Happy Monday everyone! I know I'm going to sound so lame, but how is August already halfway over?! I feel like Summer has flown by and I cannot stay on top of anything - I feel like I have no time! It's crazy! 

This whole month our #CBBxManiMonday group is doing things a little bit different and we are searching #summernails and picking our inspiration from what we find - I saw lots of fun, fruity nails and I had amazing fruit nails last year, so on top of having no time, and my super cute cactus nails looking amazing, I thought I'd showcase some of my past favourite Summer nail looks! 

Manicure Monday - Best Summer Nail Art Looks!
These nail looks may use nail polishes sent in PR

Summer Fruit Basket Nails 

This is some of my favourite nail art ever! I'm so proud of how each of the fruit pieces turned out - they are all super cute! I also love the varying red and yellow fruits and how they look on the sage green background! You can see the original post here

July 2019 - Monthly Empties & Month in Masks

Time to look at my July beauty garbage:

July 2019 - Monthly Empties & Month in Masks
Some products may have been received in PR - this post contains affiliate links

Hard Candy Setting Spray - Long Wear ~ $6.98 CAN. A weightless spray that locks in makeup for all day wear.

This came in a hard candy set and the setting spray itself worked well and I thought it helped extend the longevity of my makeup; but, the nozzle sprays this product out too thick, if that makes sense. I prefer a finer spray so that it doesn't leave any dots on my face.
Repurchase: Maybe, I would prefer if the nozzle was changed 

Saturday, August 17, 2019

Skincare Saturday - Kosmea Energising Radiance Mask

I get so excited when I'm introduced to new brands to me that have philosophies and products that I really like! Kosmea is Australian natural skincare brand that is founded on the healing properties of organic rosehip oil! 


Product received as PR sample

When I first heard Rosehip oil, I got pretty excited because my skin responds really well to rose based products. But, looking in to it a little more, rosehip oil is the oil from inside the fruit left behind forma rose that has lost its petals, referred to as a "hip"!

The Body Shop Is Bananas - B - A - N - A - N - A - S

I generally start out all of these posts by professing my love for the featured ingredients, and this post is no difference, I love banana products! So, when I saw all the banana products from The Body Shop, I went bananas and picked a bunch of them up!

I have to say that I used to use The Body Shop banana shampoo and conditioner around 15 years ago when I was in high school and I couldn't use anything else - I absolutely loved them! I was so sad when they discontinued the line and when they relaunched it a year or so ago, I was really nervous to try it because I was worried it wouldn't be the same for me!

Fairmont is such a beautiful area and we spent lots of time at the Hot Springs, on the river, and went in to Invermere a few times! Such a great time with the family!

Shark Week - Lush's Shark Fin Soap and Working To #SaveSharks

Shark Week is carrying on and I hope you are enjoying watching it - I'm away at the cabin for the week, so I'm not watching; but, I did watch a very important shark documentary that has certainly stuck with me.


Shark Week - Lush's Shark Fin Soap and Working To #SaveSharks
This soap was purchased by me and the money was happily donated to the charity

Each year on World Ocean Day, June 8, Lush released a limited edition shark fin soap - it's a pretty iconic soap and they always sell out quickly. World Ocean Day is to remind everyone of the importance that oceans play in our every day lives. The planet is 70% ocean and we get 70% of our oxygen from our oceans!

Baby Shark, Do do doo do do do do, Baby Shark, Do do doo do do do do, Mama Shark! Okay, for those of you who don't have a toddler that you need to sing this song to every day - consider yourself lucky! Baby Shark is basically a daily song and dance in our house, so it makes sense that this year's Shark Week nails are Baby Shark themed nails!

July Shop My Stash - My Light, Quick Summer Makeup Look

June 2019 - Monthly Empties and Month in Masks!

Mac Prep + Prime Fix+ ~ $33.00 CAN. A lightweight water mist that finishes makeup, while gently soothing and refreshing skin. 

I love Fix Plus - it's a solid formula of a priming and setting mist! I featured this product way back in my Monthly Favourites in June 2016 and I just talked about it recently in my Favourite Setting Sprays post! I've purchased this in mini scented versions and I love it all. It's a great priming and light setting spray!

A Lovely Tinted Lip Balm ~ Dior Lip Glow in Pink Glow

My ultimate favourite type of lip product is a tinted lip balm - it's just my go-to every day lip product! I wear a tinted lip balm all day, every day basically; while I'm working, while I'm out with the family, while I'm doing nothing... You name it, it takes a "special" occasion to get me to wear an actual lipstick!

Lately, I've started splurging a little more on my tinted lip balms - I think because I'm wearing them every day all day on my lips, why not indulge a little bit in it?! It's constantly on my lips so it should be a really great product!

I've also made it pretty clear that I love the mini Natasha Denona palettes - the 3 I tried in 2018 made my Best of 2018 Makeup Discoveries!
