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

Sponsored Giveaway Time!!

CLOSED!! WINNER TBA SOON!! I know that this is primarily a nail polish blog – and that is always going to be my main focus – but, we all know that along with nail polish, I am also a huge make-up advocate. It is through these avenues that I was contacted by a company that works alongside Apothica , SkinCare RX & Skinbotanica . They are working with me to bring something awesome to all of you – a gift card giveaway!!! One of the brands that Apothica carries is DuWop .. I personally have tried two different products from this line and loved them! I have tried Lip Venom & Cheek Venom in Sidewinder. I have to say, I was a bit of a skeptic on Lip Venom, but I finally picked it up to test it out – and it really does make your lips more plump!! The tingly feeling that it leaves is kind of fun as well. I am going to snag this little blurb from the Apothica website to share a bit more of the history of DuWop :  “ DuWop Natural, Yet Glamorous Cosmetics Created out of the needs a

Sticks 'n Stones GIVEAWAY!

Good morning everyone! Just wanted to post up a quick announcement about a little giveaway I'm doing.. I am going to tie it in to two things, but technically it will just be one.. I'll explain! I recently hit 400 followers and wanted to have a giveaway to celebrate that - aka celebrate all of you being completely awesome and following my nail polish endeavours! But the things I wanted to include in my giveaway keep being unavailable to me.. Except for Cover Band's Sticks 'n Stones and that is only because when I had ordered my bottle, I ordered a second to giveaway.. ALSO.. I decided to .com my blog. I had talked about it with my dad (he actually talks about how when he googles my name now my blog shows up and how he sees the images some times and that he thinks I'm awesome) and I declared: when I hit 400 followers, I'm going to .com it up! So I did. SO! While I say this is to celebrate both of these marvelous things, I still want to have a more.. substant
