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??

Revlon Giveaway

GIVEAWAY CLOSED! WINNERS TO BE ANNOUNCED SOON!! Yaaaay! I am really excited to do this for all of you! I really appreciate all of you following me and commenting on my posts - it is amazing! So, I figured it was time to give back a bit. Now, this isn't a monster giveaway that I want to do - that will come sometime later. I have it all planned in my mind - BUT - until then, you'll have to put up with this! I picked up 3 polishes from the new Revlon collection the other day and really wanted to grab extras to giveaway, but the store was sold out of one of the colours after I bought it, and so, that thought was quickly squashed. Then, this evening, I ran in to another shop quickly - and they had a whole wealth of them - bingo! Giveaway time! The colours are: Starry Pink, Blue Mosaic & Facets of Fuchsia Supposedly FoF is a DL Bad Romance dupe. Sadly, I do not own that polish (I really, really wish I did) - but this polish is stunning - in fact, they all are! Thi

Canada Day - Saran Wrap Style

I had said the other day that I would be using the Saran Wrap method again soon.. And I really did mean soon. I figure it was the perfect way to celebrate Canada Day (nail-wise) without over-doing it.. I mean, I'm fairly patriotic as a rule, but sometimes sporting a Maple Leaf on my fingers isn't exactly my style.. ANYways.. See? The love is there with the red and white.. I know I said the next time I did the saran wrap method, I was going to try with three colours.. But, I think I will maybe leave that experiment for tomorrow - today is only about these two colours! So.. How I get to this? Well, allow me to show you. Start off with the colours of your choice - one as the base, and one as your.. distress-er? And some saran/cling wrap. I take two pieces and ball them up.. You could use more or less.. But I figure two hands, two, er, balls. Yikes. After your base has COMPLETELY DRIED (you can do these a couple of hours in advance, the night before, or even use some

Dry Marble Technique

Hey everyone! Yes.. Dry marble technique.. well.. technically I am water marbling, but allowing the polish to "dry" on the water.. then using it as a nail decal. Does that sound confusing? It might. But. I think this will be my next video. It is actually a lot of fun to do. And while I think this first attempt is grand, it could be better. I used: China Glaze Strong Adhesion Base Coat Sally Hansen Bubblegum Pink Sally Hansen  Babe Blue Sally Hansen Mellow Yellow Water Dotting Tool Bowl Seche Vite Dry Fast Top Coat I will probably film a video for this within the next week - so I will post up that gem soon. Or, there are probably a wealth online for you to look up in the mean time. Super fun technique without all the hassle of legit water marbling. See you all again soon!
