Haul For The Week Of Aug 12-18

Hey everyone!

I did a wee little bit of shopping on Thursday.. I also had some exciting items arrive in the mail that same day.. so basically Thursday was MY day. I figure I will share the fun items that I bought and leave the boring items (contact lens solution, deodorant, etc, out).. Shall we?

I came home from work on Thursday to see a little box waiting for me.. checked the sender.. it was from makeupgeek! eeee! I had been waiting a few moons these beauties to arrive..



The eyeshadows I ordered (L-R starting at the top) are: Peach Smoothie, Creme Brulee, Shimma Shimma, Bleached Blonde, Hipster, and Cosmopolitan.

Now, some of you avid readers are probably like 'you have a lot of eyeshadow.. surely you have millions of these colours!' True, but, I don't have them by this brand. Yes, I have a wealth of make-up.. but I always like to try different brands. Though I do think I can slooooow down on make-up buying for awhile. I really do have a lot to go through. I was just really excited to try these gems out.. and the z palette is pretty adorable.. I ordered HERE.

Then, later Thursday evening.. I went over to the mall.. I had stopped in during my lunch break with Yaz.. saw a couple of items I liked at Laundry and figured I could hit there and Target and call it a night. One of the shirts I wanted from Laundry I didn't end up getting (I didn't love it on me) but I did score some rad things!


Yeah. A mustache cardigan.. Kind of a big deal! It is lovvvely! Then I grabbed two basic shirts - one in white and one in black. I really like the necklines on these gems. And they are super soft - very nice quality. I really do love that store. OH! And they now follow me on twitter.. I kind of had a heart attack when I saw that!! Again, if you're in Saskatoon.. Go check them out! There is a store in Centre Mall and one downtown!!

Next stop: Target. There were some essentials I stopped in to get - again, boring stuff.. and I really needed another bottle of acetone, but they didn't have any.. so I decided to amble over to Shoppers (on the other side of the mall) - they also do not sell acetone. What?! Dumb. A Wal-Mart run will have to happen at some point.. Anyways. I will share my two "fun" purchases from Target and Shoppers.


The primer was picked up at Shoppers. I have wanted it for awhile.. and it was safer to pick this gem up at Shoppers instead of Sephora.. and I also used some of my points towards it. Yay! I decided to give a primer a shot because lately my nose has been getting really oily (ew) during the day - I have never really had that happen to me before (or maybe I didn't really notice?!) Maybe this will help? Plus, the cap is adorable. I'm a polka dot fiend.

The brushes I picked up from Target. I wanted some different brushes to have.. I have quite a few.. but I really wanted that angled face brush.. in case I want to try some slight face conturing from time to time.. Plus this set made more sense from a value point of view. Yup!

That is all for meow - I hope you all had a great week - what are some of your purchases from the past week??

Grungey Leopard Nails

Hey everyone!

Today I have some grungey leopard print nails for you.. I had a different direction I had wanted to go in last night, but then ended up with this. Not disappointed.


I used:
China Glaze Strong Adhesion Base CoatButter London High TeaOrly Liquid VinylSally Hansen Terra-CoppaAcetoneBrushDotting ToolSeche Vite Dry Fast Top Coat
I did two coats of the base colour (High Tea), then I was adding "splatter" prints with black (Liquid Vinyl) but felt they were too perfect.. so.. I decided to douse them with some acetone.. then.. I just decided to "smoke" them out.. which made the nails look grungey. But. This is me. I couldn't stop there. I decided to make dots (Terra-Coppa) throughout the smokey black, then make it into leopard print. Love.

That is all for today - see you all again soon!

Black Marble (sort of).

Hey everyone!

-Insert gratuitous reasoning(s) of why I have been away-

Ok, now that that is out of the way, hi!

I just realized I still have a couple post photos stocked up. Sigh. I haven't even uploaded all that is currently living on my camera. The fear is real.

That is for another day. Mayhaps this weekend.

Until then.

I think I said it at some point on my blog, but I feel like 2017 is going to be the year that I constantly do faux marble nails. Note: not watermarbling. I have given in to that failed activity far too many times.

No, I mean the classy kind of marble. You know.

This time, I did it in reverse, because, why not?


 It counts, right?

Ugh. I love it.

All right, that is all for today. See you all again soon (I promise).

Neutral Dots

Hey everyone!

Long time, no blog. I have just been soso bad about getting photos of my nails.. going to try to end the year on a high note. Fingers crossed!

I apologize for how drrrry my hands/cuticles look in these photos. You know how you know that your hands are dry, but you don't think they are that bad, and maybe they aren't, but a photo makes it look 50x worse? That.

I was able to snap up this set of 4 Butter London gem polishes awhile back.. very neutral, but it had a particular shade I had been eyeing.. but that is not what I have used here, naturally.

That is all for today. I have mostly been wearing a wealth of polka dotted nail art.. there is something I want to re-visit from a couple of years back - will probably do that this weekend, and then keep going from there. Halloween is on the horizon.. so.. that will be a thing too. Take care…
