Lilacs In Full Bloom

Ooh the lilacs are just so lovely aren’t they? We have 3 huge bushes on our property and I couldn’t be more thrilled to make some spring bouquets! As the lilacs are in full bloom, so are my allergies… The beauty of our lush yard weighs out the crazy allergy attacks any day though.

ethical bean coffee ☕ review

The rich, smokey coffee bean flavour I could taste through the smell that gusted out of the bag when I first opened it was some what orgasmic I want to say, this medium/dark roast should have been titled lust.

01

My boyfriend and I are about 3/4 of the way through this new coffee we decided to try out. This ethical coffee is Arabica, fair trade, certified Canada & USDA organic.

I was intrigued by they’re packaging. They have a little scan bit on the back you can scan with your phone and trace the coffee’s unique journey from crop to cup. On the back they have a resealable bit so you don’t have to cut this bag open or worry about your beans going stale!

At the store we bought it from, I believe there were 4 different blends, I cannot recall the other ones however we decided to go with “lush” because why would you not! This is a medium dark roast with a very rich flavour perfect for our Vigano Vespress stovetop espresso maker!  Soooo yummy. The description really says it all on the packaging:

Any richer, and you’d ask it for a loan. A heavy cup with Burgundian fullness, alive with fruit, smoke & earth notes.

02

There is 8 different roasts both in full bean or pre ground. I would recommend this if you’re seeking out a new coffee bean to try. $12.99 for 340g whole bean. Slammin deal if you ask me!

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 😛

$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 😀
