Monthly Beauty & Book Haul ~ May 2022

I'm switching up my Monthly Haul posts a little bit this year, because I'm actually *trying* to stick to a bit of a budget! I've been going a little crazy on the beauty and books front, so I just want to be a little more thoughtful in my purchases. So. I'm trying to keep my beauty and book purchases to $200 a month - we'll see! 

I do always love my Monthly Haul posts - it's a good way to keep track of everything that I picked up each 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! 

I purchased everything in this post

Indigo Preorders ~ $34.49 CAN. I like doing preorders when Indigo has them on sale, but I try to keep them for books that I'm going to read right away! So, I knew I wanted to read Something Wilder and Book Lovers right away, so hopefully I read them both this Summer! 

Shoppers Drug Mart Order ~ $0.00 CAN. I used a bunch of PC Optimum points for a few last minute things I needed this month - I've already shared the Essie polishes, and the Top Coat made my Monthly Favourites in May, mascara, eye liner, travel dry shampoo and finally the ELF Cosmetics Camo CC Cream was released in Canada so I had to pick it up! 

By The Book ~ $13.88 CAN. Another pre-order that I had to pick up right away (and this one came all the way to Italy with me) - it's a great little fluffy romance book that I really enjoyed! 

Kiko Milano Haul ~ $100.96 CAN (€74.47). One of the places that I was most excited about shopping at in Italy was Kiko Milano - they don't ship to Canada, so I haven't tried them yet! I was pretty impressed with the conversion rate and I picked up quite a few goodies! I used the masks on my trip and I'm getting ready to use the makeup asap! 

Nabla Haul ~ $63.93 CAN (€45.90). I found a little shop in Naples called Daisy Beauty and wanted to try a few Nabla goodies - I tried to get one of these Skin Glazing blushes before, but Ulta stopped shipping to Canada, so when I spotted them in the shop, I had to get one! I picked up this cute mascara as well. 

Scratch Monthly Mani Kit ~ $19.66 CAN. The June Scratch mani kit looks great - the design is Mixtape and it's super cute, can't wait to get them! 

I spent $232.92 this month - I'm actually impressed I was so close to my budget as I had a feeling in Italy that I was going to blow my budget, so I did pretty good!
