A Wee Collective Haul

IMG_1424

Currently spending a couple of days in Chilliwack with my Fiance visiting his Dad and Step-mother. Earlier this afternoon we went to an market called “Art on the farm”. I came across a lovely collection of pottery a woman had crafted with her pottery wheel. This mug here only cost me $20. Which I personally think is a bangin’ deal because where I live, our pottery shop is at least $45 for a crafted mug, which I have never purchased but always thought they were quite lovely. IMG_1426A couple of days before we came to Chilliwack we hit up our local “drugstore” and chose a few on sale perfumes/colognes. Unfortunately there were no testers… And we really didn’t feel like bothering the lady stocking the shelves with makeup galore, so we just went ahead and chose a couple random ones that appealed to us. My fiance’s better than mine, I chose two that I am not fond of either, HOWEVER i WILL find a time and place to wear these, plus they will still look nice on my desk :P

$20.00

This Jennifer Aniston scent definitely reminds me of an older mature woman, mom like… about 5’4, nice blond hair.. KIDDING. Not about the mature scent though, I can’t really describe the actual aroma’s in both of the perfumes I purchased for myself and for the first time, i’ve noticed there is no actual description or the scent AT ALL, on either of them.

$19.99

 Naughty Alice by Vivienne Westwood is more… flowery.. i think.. It’s a bold scent, kinda pretty, has a slight sweetness to it. In the end it kind of smells like baby powder.. Not sure if it was a mix of smells from the other scents in the room (which wasn’t really anything) I do really like the packaging and the bottle it came in. It came with a “wearable bracelet” I think i’ll probably leave it on the bottle because i like the way it looks. 

$19.99

It’s a Burberry Weekend my friends. We’re hittin up playland tomorrow and my fiance is mos def makin it a burberry a-fair. Hopefully i’ll be able to capture some moments for you lovely birds! This is a typical delicious man smell that girls shouldn’t be able to resist. Myself included. I can’t describe it other than delicious man scent.

$19.99

If anyone is looking for a new pair of running shoes that make you SUPER EXTRA FAST, you should go to your local sportcheck and try these babies on. Free Run 4.0 which me and my fiance each got a pair. Yes, people.. it’s happening. Me and my boyfriend  fiance are now buying matching clothing. Honestly never thought it would get to this point. LOL. Although his have a nice coral colour instead of this pale turquoise.

 

$124

I somehow miss placed all 3 of my blushes, resulting picking up this Annabelle SkinTrue Blush in the shade “sorbet”. I only saw three shades and this one seemed most popular so I grabbed it with no hesitation. I thiiiiink i paid $8.00 for this.. I totally forget.. 

$8.00

I finally jumped on the wagon for essie and to be brutally honest I have no idea what the hype is all about. This product has been waaaay over hyped and not worth it at all. I’ve never paid over $4.00 for a nail polish and i paid $8.00 FOR EACH OF THESE WHICH I COULD HAVE GOT A MEER 4 NAIL COLOUR. The “marshmallow” white colour on the right is literally like painting marshmallows on your nails. YES, i shook the beep out of it and I painted 3 coats which still left streaks on my nails. It’s never fun having to paint 4 coats of nail polish on just to make a solid colour. I have yet to try the “take me to oasis” pale light blue colour on the left but.. perhaps tomorrow. &&&&& I picked up another babylips, this will be my 3rd lipbalm by them and i laaav them. I can TOTALLY understand the hype for Babylips they’re $3.00 a piece and there is plenty of different ones to choose from, including the medic line which is for super chaps and dehydrated lips! 

 

Thanks for reading :D

July Ipsy Bag

IMG_1173

It’s been a couple of month’s since I posted an Ipsy bag review! Happy to bring you my birth month’s bag though! July that is! I hope everyone has been having a lovely summer and been soaking up those sun beams ;)

 [GO TO THE BOTTOM OF THIS POST TO SIGN UP FOR YOUR OWN IPSY BAG!]

01

Since the wild flowers are slowly dying down, I decided to lighten things up with some cutesie daisies, enjoy! <3

02

BB Creme SPF 25 – Light Tint by derma e is only a sample size so i’m not sure how much this would cost, however full size is $29.50 for 60 ml.

This tint is a tad too light for my skin tone during the summer. It does blend in pretty nicely, definitely not jiving with my tan right now though.

“This advanced formula instantly erases the look of imperfections and turns back the clock on aging skin. Conceals, brightens and evens out skin tone.”

04

 SPF 30 Sunscreen by pur~lisse. This sunscreen is pretty light to the touch however does have a pretty strong scent of the “sunscreen”, so for people with sensitive skin I would probably not use this on your face.. As it does not specify wether it is for your body or face.

This is a sample size so I am not sure how much this would cost. The full product of 50mL costs $55.00 which for me personally is a bit on the pricey side for sunscreen.

http://shop.purlisse.com/products/pur-protect-spf-30

0506

bareMinerals READY Eye Shadow 2.0, shade “inspiration”. I’m not sure I understand the shade title but I do really like the purple shade ^.^ The pigment doesn’t seem anything too special, builds nicely and leaves a pretty sparkle.

This also is a sample, full size come’s with a little brush and perhaps a mirror for $20.

03

Tinted Brilliance Balm – “Unique Pink” by Pixi. My first impression is that it glides nicely onto my lips and it feels of a light Vaseline, if any of you reading this have used vaseline on your lips.. repairing and smooth.. I don’t see any tint on my lips although in the description is does quote “Your own personal, pH reactive pink”, deffinitely no unique pinkess going on over here though.. Just a bit more juicy looking.

Feels nice though, I like it.

Again, a sample. Full size product is £12.

pop beauty – Sunkissed Bronzer “Secret Sunshine” Full Size.

I was happy to pull a bronzer out of the cute neon pouch, because I’ve been using this little random bronzer in a little makeup kit from e.l.f and its 3 shades definitely too dark and looks like dirt on my face. So this brought a smile to my face.

This product is actually out of stock at the moment so i’m not sure how much this bronzer is worth. I know pop beauty is pretty cheaply priced. I’ll make sure to add the price once it’s back in stock.

My Mother’s Garden.

IMG_1156

There is no doubt in my mind, my love for flowers and plants grew in my mother’s garden. This year I personally think my mother has out done herself. The amount of beauty growing in my parents yard makes my heart smile. Flowers bring me peace and tranquility, what’s your preferred flower?

BUSHWACKED MUSIC & ARTS FESTIVAL

bushwacked_sticker2014_FB

I was recently asked to do a sticker design for the up coming music & arts festival “bushwacked”. Here’s what me and my partner came up with. The coordinators were very pleased with the design, in which case they asked me if i’d like to take some photos of the festival and in return get a media pass which includes better camping area, free food every day of the festival & i assume some kind of access pass to take some sick shots!

IF YOU’RE IN THE WEST COAST OF BC COME CHECK OUT BUSHWACKED

Current Foundation Routine

It has been a while since my last video… Give or take a good 3-4 months. However the sun is showing its face again and I feel as though I have the energy to continue on with my youtube channel. Having no idea where to start with all this I decided to do my current foundation routine.

If you have any suggestions for videos, i would love to hear them!
