I was stuck in a limbo between blogging and Instagram and haven’t worn any new makeup for a while. *sigh* I felt a bit unmotivated lately, but I did get some amazing new makeup products lately and it’s not fair if I don’t share. There are very few items I’d buy a backup for a makeup product that I’m not even halfway done, but Make Up For Ever Ultra HD Lip Booster is definitely an exception to the rule.
If you haven’t heard, Canada is turning freakin’ 150 years old this year. I’m almost 1/5 of that age. Needless to say, there’s a LOT going on in Vancouver now for Canada 150 (but I’m also just really excited for the long weekend.) There’s also a lot of specialty items created for Canada’s 150th birthday; TWG Tea Canada is currently serving the Jubilee Tea Set and you don’t need to be Canadian to enjoy the flavours in this!

After eating days of crappy park food in Disney World, I said I’d stay away from fried protein when I went to New York City. The only exception that deserved to be an exception was Fuku, a fried chicken shop that is part of the Momofuku chain. (I really wanted to go to Momofuku Ko, but given the price and USD to CAD exchange rate, it just wasn’t worth it. It is on my bucket list though, ever since it was mentioned in one of my favourite books, The Rosie Project.) I went to Momofuku Noodle in Toronto and I think I will continue to try different Momofuku’s in different cities! [Read more…]
With all the walking I’ve done in Disneyworld and all the walking I know that will happen in New York, I’d thought it would be essential to book a spa at New York City’s Lush Spa. If you’ve been on here before, you’d know I love using Lush products and I often use it at home as a treat. So of course I’d be down to have someone use a bunch of Lush products on me while feeling relaxed.
I’m back! This is probably the longest break I’ve gone from blogging and I’m feeling a bit more inspired after returning from my Disney World and New York trip. I still have thousands of photos to sift through, so bear with me in the speed of getting posts up! I used my vacation as an excuse to take a prolonged blogging break, as I felt a bit overwhelmed by things lately. Anyways, whatever, let’s take a trip down memory lane.
I stayed in two hotels that are part of The Library Hotel Collection in New York. The first one was Hotel Elysée at 60 E 54th St. This location is to the Uniqlo flagship store (does that help with choosing which hotel to stay at?) 😉
