When I moved a few months ago, I was excited to declutter the mess I brought to my new home. Unfortunately places closed shortly after due to the global health crisis, so I have bags and bags of makeup lying around. Makeup is a tripping hazard around my bed. I also thought maybe I will be drinking more water at home now. Nope, I’ve been very good at staying dehydrated. But now I have time to try all the lip products I have at home and talk about them on here. Lano, an Australian beauty brand, has been on my radar for a long time due to its marketing for having some of the best lip balms – Lanolips. As a professional lip peeler (gross, I know) due to perpetual dry lips, I was ecstatic to try some of their highly rated products.
I’ve been on this post for a while as one of my boxes of makeup got lost amongst moving from condo to home and luckily it was hiding in my friend’s car! Phew, glad I did NOT lose my Catrice Cosmetics products. These were sent to me for a review and I was excited to see this European brand in Canada now! Now that I have more time at home, I will be doing more makeup looks and keep this as a “first impressions” post – so prepare for lots of photos!
With so much time at home now, other than working, I’ve been trying to find new hobbies to keep time going by. It’s been so hard to separate my ‘work hours’ and my ‘life’ time. The couch and dining table are within a few steps of each other. Two milestones are coming up in the near future – I’m turning 30 soon (yay…..nay….) and that I’m going to be getting married! Although with everything closed, all I can do is look up stuff online these days. One site that I’ve been browsing is Basic Invite – your one stop shop for all invitation needs. [Read more…]
I am pretty low key when it comes to jewelry but I love a good pair of fun earrings. Mostly, my style has been gravitating towards statement gold earrings. A splash of gold never hurts and to me and definitely jazzes up my plain work wardrobe and my endless supply of black and dark clothes. I used to be wary about wearing “bolder” earrings because of my glasses (it felt like too many things on my head? face?) but now that I’m comfortable with who I am; I’ll have whatever I want on my ears. Even if it’s golden fortune cookies.
So many things happened in the last month I barely time to catch up with myself. Moving into my first home-owned. Getting engaged. Work has been non stop. Self care is something I’m striving to get more of, hopefully in the next coming month. I have three massages booked already. Moving all my possessions into a small one bedroom apartment was definitely a stressful and I’m thankful only 2 things broke during the move. Especially glad my nail polishes made the trip. The Zoya Twinkling Collection Awas sent to me during Christmas time and I want to give some glory to it now. [Read more…]
