Anyone been massively online shopping since March and the rate of staying at home accelerated by 500%? I definitely got carried away with buying online anything for the last little while, and the way we have been doing things are shifting. I’ve been working from home since March, so I am going a bit home-loopey. I miss my fresh coffee during walks, but I’m grateful that I can be at home and can work remotely. The one thing I do miss most is definitely travelling. I miss new places, new food, and new culture. And spas, I had two spa dates lined up and then cancelled. In comes Beauty Sense, a Montreal based spa that offers spa quality products online. AND they’re Canadian! Treating myself with spa products is what I will be doing and the only thing that is preventing me from looking like a tired slug on the couch. [Read more…]
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!
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…]
Last fall, I went on a mini day trip to shop in the states and did a mini Ulta beauty haul. One of the brands I’ve always wanted to try was Colourpop as I’ve heard good things about their quality and affordability; and I like how they spelled ‘colour’ the Canadian way. 🙂 I also bought a lipstick along with the No Filter Concealer and Liquid Liner, but it mysteriously disappeared somewhere before I even had a chance to use it. 🙁 RIP $7 USD.
