Bath And Body Works

January Favorites!

1:00 AM

I missed December's favorites just because I wasn't really crazy in love with anything but this month I kinda am....


*MAYBELLINE'S BABY LIPS-Peppermint. This works great for me and I love the smell!!
*TOKIDOKI- The packaging is my FAVORITE! Very cute. This is a nice gloss with nice color, I love to use it after my baby lips!

*GIOVANNI Hair styling mousse- The is my HG mousse! LOVE IT! Cruelty free, enriched with organic bonticals. This is the ONLY mousse I have ever used and we all know I have used a million different kinds that ACTUALLY help give my blahh hair volume! LOVE this stuff and will continue to repurchase.

*SKULL CANDY ear buds- I go through these ridiculously fast since I listen to them pretty much all day at work, these were only $9 so if they wear out oh well!

BE ENCHANTED- Bath & Body Works Body Mist. Smells really fricken good!!

*BENEFITS BAD GAL Brown. Ahh this stuff is really nice! The wand is really unique with the shape, it works soooo well on my bottom lashes!
*NYC Eye/Eye Brow Liner in Black. This is probably my favorite drug store liner now, it goes on smooth and it is very black.
*MAYBELLINE Mineral Powder Concealer- LOVE this stuff! I can apply this to my whole entire face and wow what a transformation ;) just kidding...but it works really well to spot conceal things you need to! Matches my skin tone very well.

I have been trying to watch my spending so my blog has been a little boring for makeup products but I needed to cut back a bit on all the crap I buy!  But i'm in a shopping mood today so we will see what happens!

What has been your favorite for January?

January Empties!

1:00 AM

Some of my empties this month!

*CALGON Marshmallow Body Mist - This lasted me like 2 years I swear, would I repurchase? Yes if it was on sale, it smells really yummy!!
GARNIER FRUCTIS Detangling Double Care-I did repurchase a few weeks ago actually, super good detangler!
*CHI 44 Iron Guard- There is a lot of love/hate for this product I have noticed, I would only buy it if it was on sale. I find the Tresemme heat tamer works the same as this to me.


*JOICO K-PAK Intense Hydrator- Yes I would repurchase for sure, such a good product!

*Macadamia Deep Repair Masque- LOVE this hair masque as well, its AMAZING!!!!!! DEF repurchase!!!

I don't know why but I seem to use hair products the fastest out of anything and makeup the slowest, other than mascara.. Lip gloss always seems to last me a while as well even though I am using it 24/7.

What is a product you use up quickly?

How to get beautiful skin in 24 hours
 
If you’ve got an important event to go to and you need a quick pick me up – fear not. There are plenty of ways to revamp your appearance in just 24 hours. A course of microdermabrasion would be ideal, but if you’ve run out of time – here’s what to do!

1.       Massage your face
Whenever you’re looking haggard try giving your face a massage. Simply rub your face all over with your hands or invest in a little gadget that’ll do the work for you.  You’ll boost circulation and increase the oxygen to your skin which should leave you with a glowing complexion. Massage also helps rebalance hormone levels and encourages relaxation – so what you waiting for?

2.       Exercise
Before a night out, hit the gym to improve your muscle tone and improve your complexion. Exercise is a great way to clear up your skin as toxins leave your body through sweat. Your body will also release endorphins which will help lift your mood and leave you feeling fabulous. Wash off any nasty smells and you’ll be up for dancing all night long.

3.       Exfoliate
xfoliation is the key to good skin as it helps remove dead skin cells and unblocks pores. Whenever you’re in the shower just take a few minutes to rub your favourite gel all over your body – starting at your feet and working up towards your face. This should leave you with a complexion that’s soft, supple and ready for a party.
4.       Moisturise
After removing all the dirt and grime from your face, be sure to moisturise. A decent cream will help your skin to glow and will expose your natural luminosity. A bright, clear and smooth complexion is certainly attractive, so invest in a decent moisturiser. Botox will help remove lines and wrinkles, but if you’ve not got an appointment opt for an anti-aging product.

5.       Get a good night’s sleep
If you’ve an important event to go to the next day try hitting the pillow earlier than usual. A good night’s sleep should lift your mood and should leave you feeling lively. Plenty of rest will also reduce the risk of dark bags underneath your eyes and will help you look your best. We all live busy lives, but it’s important to get between 7-8 hours of sleep every night.
A thorough beauty regime should help you to feel glamorous in hours, so always pamper yourself before a party.


Guest post anyone? I would be thrilled to post more of these, Thank you Bella!


Famous Stars and Straps

Ridiculousness at it's finest!!

1:00 AM

Ridiculousness at it's finest. Yes that is something I am able to achive...

I thought this was kind of funny and you might think I am just a money waster but hey I like to spend a little bit of money on these things =D

Hope you find it a little funny...



Of course after I put all this away I found some more that I had in a different cupboard that I clearly don't use. I have tried all of these numerous times but obviously do not use them all on a regular basis and need to ditch some of them as they are old!
I love nice eye lashes and I try to find the perfect mascara...is there even one?


This picture was so insane to take, I can't even fit them all in a shot. And I have way more then this kicking around my car and purse and pretty much everywhere lol.

My Famous Stars and Straps addiction...have been wearing this brand for like 10 years and have many more shirts then this! But this was a lil instagram post me and a friend were doing.I think I kicked his ass in who had more Famous gear!

Go figure right? Don't judge me! ;) 


Okay those are pretty much all my craziness of crap I have, I just thought it might be kinda funny to post this.... now tell me whats your biggest collection of things you have??

Sometimes I just feel like looking at pictures rather then talking, so here are some random pictures I found on weheartit.com and google.com



 haha I totally wish I made this picture! Hilarious!



 totally how I feel! ;)

call me weird but I would totally tattoo my head if my hair decided to leave my skull...knock on wood that doesn't happen!! But this girl is gorgeous!



That's all for now.....

HAPPY M O N D A Y !!!!!!!!!



Friday

FREAKIN FRIDAY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

7:08 AM





Yes FREAKING FINALLY FRIDAY!!!!!!!!!!  Friday the 13th too! But I like to take "superstitions" and make them good luck. So Lotto ticket buying today!!!!!! =D
I am VERY VERY happy it is almost the weekend, this week has been super busy and super long... need the rest this weekend!
I might head down to a city a couple hours away and check out some tattoo shops but that is all I think I plan on doing.... What are you guys up too this weekend??



Garnier Fructis

Random Drugstore Buys!

6:52 AM

Sometimes I am glad I don't live in the U.S because seriously you guys have such amazing shopping, and for some strange reason I have an obsession with drug stores, I ALWAYS want to go in them and check out what they have! Anyone else?
There are so many more options in American ones too then Canadian ones so my bank account would hate me if I lived there!

These are just some random things I found on sale, I totally believe in buying things on sale rather then full price, and use coupons! 

First I was at Shoppers Drug Mart
*GARNIER FRUCTIS Crystal  Resist Hair Spray- $2.99 (  I realized after it is even cheaper at Walmart)
*RIMMEL Scandal Eyes $6.74, I am not sure what the regular price is but it said it was on sale, and I since I have no self control I purchased this!
*GARNIER FRUCTIS Color Shield- $2.99 (again it was like 2.75 at walmart, ops) I know these products aren't cruelty free but I am having a hard time finding decent priced things some days and sadly $ wins sometimes =(  This works really well to detangle my crappy hair and help keep color lasting.
*BATISTE my <3 in Blush -$6.99 totally didn't NEED this but for $3 cheaper then regular and I know I will use it I mays well!

Okay this brush is INSANE! I think it's as big as my hair brush!;) I always think I like massive brushes but I really don't sadly so far I am not loving this. I will try it more and see if I can figure out why I think I like fat brushes but I think its not good unless you have some crazy full lashes which I do not =(

*LIVE CLEAN Sweet Pea Hand Soap -$4.99. Okay this stuff is EFFING amazing! It smells delicious,makes your hands soft and it is free from all that crap that shouldn't be in products we put on us! Cruelty free as well. Very nice soap!
*Lindt Snow Balls- $0.99. Okay who's bright idea was this? Jerkface! I seriously will eat this in like 10 minutes.Sure didn't need these but man are they good!

REDKEN Color Extend $19.99. Okay I am completely fed up of buying a million different shampoo's and seeing my color run down my shower drain. I know there is no solution to completely save your color but I refuse to use drug store shampoo's any longer. This isn't going to stop my color from leaving my hair but I know it works and this bottle will last me for like a year I bet. I still have the conditioner I purchased almost a year ago, I don't use it every wash but every couple I do and they last for so long.

That is all my drug store purchases for the past few weeks. What was the latest you've bought??
