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??

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).

Formula X The Match CLIX! Swatch Post

Hey everyone!

Last weekend, as I bopped in to Sephora to nab some retexurizing pads I was out of, I took a quick peruse of the store, as one does - but my pal that I was with had strict instructions to keep me fairly focused (that, and we had a movie starting in like.. 30 mins)

Anyways! In the back of my mind, I was also wanting a 'nude' polish because of an image I had saved from IG. Took a look at these Formula X The Match CLIX! in 'Fair/Light' and quickly made my way to the till.

My plan was to immediately swatch all of them and just post them.. but I used the blue first, was obsessed and wanted to wear it as a full mani with an accent nail - so I did the rest of my swatches with an accent nail as well - two birds, meet one stone.. all of these accent nail polishes that I used we in my untried rack. Seriously, winning.


The four colours in the set were designed to complement the skin tones specified - and I think they did an exceptional job with the fair/light shades…

Revlon Galactic Pink

Hey everyone!

I have seen a small wealth of posts in FB groups and such on these Revlon holographic polishes.. and I didn't sprint out to buy them.. but I did happen to meander past a display of them the other day. I decided to snap up this pink shade. Kind of glad I did.

The formula is suuuper easy to work with, and very buildable - it also dried quite quickly. All wins in my book.

I am starting to get better at putting on a cuticle lotion or oil instead of picking at the skin/cuticles.. so, I am hoping that my nails will start growing now. Fingers crossed!

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